Design


Graphics card GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclock features 295x120x64 mm dimensions and rather unusual design. Instead of common fans on the frontal board Gigabyte covered PCB and elements of cooling system by a metallic cover with decorative holes; the rear board is also covered by a metallic plate. The top board is only partially covered by the lid that hides a line of five fans, while the bottom board unveils a voluminous heatsink with heatpipes. The implemented circuit board is originally designed with a reinforced power supply …

HIS Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2: Graphics Card with an Offbeat Cooler

HIS has recently replenished its Radeon R9 series of graphics cards with a new model – the Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2. Based on AMD Hawaii Pro chip, this card is a combination of an ultimate efficiency and an offbeat design. The integrated GPU runs at an etalon frequency — 947 MHz. No changes have been incorporated into the frequency mode of GDDR5 memory: the 4 GB memory with 512-bus interface runs at nominal/effective 1250/5000 MHz frequency.



The major peculiarity pertained to the model is the employment of a proprietary two-slot cooler, codenamed IceQ X2. It consists of a spacious copper base (40x47.5 mm), a large aluminum heatsink, a pair of 89 mm fans, and five nickel-plated heatpipes: 2x 8 mm and 3x 6 mm. The cooler also accommodates additional heatspreaders, which dissipate heat in memory and VRM sections. Moreover, the framework boasts a dedicated stiffening plate that reduces loading on the printed circuit board.


To continue, HIS Radeon R9 290 IceQ X2 comes with two …
