Asus has replenished its portfolio of graphics cards with a mini-item, GeForce GTX 950 Mini, targeting Mini-ITX systems. It features 172x112 mm dimensions to fit any PC chassis. Despite small size, the model is ready to cope with all modern Full HD gaming applications. As distinct from full-blown adapters, this item doesn’t require an additional 6-pin PCIe connector, since its power consumption level is reduced to 75 W.



Asus GeForce GTX 950 Mini takes Nvidia GM206-250 GPU as the core. It entails 768 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 48 TMUs. As distinct from the etalon model, the new-comer boasts overclocked frequency index: 1051 MHz (base) & ‘OC’ mode 1228 MHz (dynamic).


The integrated GPU is mated with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory (128-bit interface). It operates at 1652 MHz/6608 MHz frequency. Memory allows for 105.73 Gb/sec bandwidth. The videocard comes equipped with three different video ports: HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort and DVI-I.

Review of video card ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DC/2DI/1GD5

ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DC/2DI/1GD5 model does not belong to the category of the best among the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, but the product is quite unusual, and deserves some attention. It comes in a big box. Delivery includes: adapter DVI / D-Sub; adapter mini-HDMI/HDMI; two power supply with two 4-pin molex to PCI-E 6-pin; CD with software; instruction. Video card is made in dark colours: PCB and enclosure of cooling system in black. Externally it is very similar to many of other ASUS video cards.



The cooling system is the radiator using three pipes instead of two. Heat pipes have direct contact with the surface of the GPU. They fit tightly in the grooves of the aluminum base. Blowing fan is placed between two raised sections of the radiator. And for a good blow of extreme areas it requires powerful air flow, which means higher fan speed. There is Everflow T129215SU fan with diameter of 92 mm (actual diameter of the blades a little less). The PCB is different from the standard and made in …

SilverStone Debuts with SST-ST30SF Power Supply

SilverStone Technology has recently introduced its newest SFX power supply unit. Codenamed SST-ST30SF, it features 125x100x63.5 mm dimensions and weighs 800 g only. The unit is estimated for 300 W power and is capable to demonstrate more than 81% efficiency in 230 V networks. High efficiency level allowed the model to gain 80Plus Bronze certificate.



The most uncommon feature ascribed to SST-ST30SF is that it can operate in passive mode if thermal conditions allow. The unit is equipped with a fan of 80 mm dimensional type; it starts rotating only when the surrounding temperature reaches 55 degrees. This promotes for a considerable power reduction and practically silent work when the fan gets disabled. An average noise level on active operation makes up 18 dB.


SilverStone furnishes the new entry with a single +12V rail, estimated for 22 A current. In its turn, +3.3V rail is estimated for 21 A current, while +5V rail – for 20 A current. It should be noted that this unit …
