PSU Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 700W Review

Toughpower Grand series is one of the foreground PSU lines in the production gamma of Thermaltake. The series is replenishing with ever newer models from time to time, offering more advanced facilities and more efficient power. Model Toughpower Grand TPG-700M is one of the latest power supply units from this manufacturer. Its is characterized by the availability of 80Plus Platinum certificate and the employment of high-quality capacitors that ensure its stability of operation. Upon the whole, TPG-700M might be called a worthy follower of Toughpower series.

Specifications and User Experience

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 700W is notable by a quite wide temperature condition range which fluctuates within the measures of 0 up to 50 degrees. The power on +12VDC rail is estimated at 696W (58A). The correlation of power on this rail with the total power makes up 0.994; this is a sample index for such type of units. All other basic specifications of the model are indicated on the …

PowerColor Intros New Graphics Card with Fling Force Cooler

TUL Corporation, in the framework of its PowerColor brand, introduces a new graphics card with quite an original way of air cooling organization. The new-coming adapter, codenamed PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 Fling Force, employs 'two-storied' cooler of an unusual structure. Along with an aluminum heatsink, copper heat pipes, and a voluminous fan, the manufacturer implemented non-monolithic fan ribs. Their tips are fixed to the main part in a way to change their location relative to the plain of rotation.

On conditions of low rotational speed, tips of the ribs are located at approximately 80 degrees angle relative to the graphics card. On conditions of heightened speed, the ribs become more linear; this way, the impeller diameter enlarges from 92 mm to 95 mm. Such structural approach to the fan framework develops into an improved performance and air cooling effect.

The model is based on Pitcairn chip, developed on Graphics Core Next architecture under 28 nm technological …

Gigabyte Readies Entry-Level Graphics Card GV-N640D5-2GI

Gigabyte is going to introduce one more entry-level graphics solution that corresponds to the updated Nvidia GeForce GT 640 series. Entitled Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 (GV-N640D5-2GI), the card employs GK107 GPU, running at 1046 MHz frequency instead of the preceding 900 MHz. The core, developed under 28 technological process, utilizes 384 CUDA cores.

It’s necessary to underline that the new-comer differs by the availability of 2 GB memory, whereas all etalon models take 1 GB only. Memory is represented by 64-bit GDDR5 chips that run at 5010 MHz effective frequency, if compared with 1800 MHz frequency that DDR3 modules demonstrate.

GV-N640D5-2GI comes with an improved design of PCB where a brand Ultra Durable 2 concept has been incorporated. This concept implies the employment of a high-quality hardware base, involving durable solid-state capacitors, transistors with low channel resistance RDS (on), and ferrite throttles with reduced power loss. Traditionally, the model …
