Asus Launches a Wide Range of Nvidia Maxwell-Based Adapters

Asus is the one to introduce the largest assortment of graphics adapters based on a fresh Nvidia Maxwell GPU. The range of suggested products involves two models from Asus GeForce GTX 750 series and three models from Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti series. All five new-comers are differentiated by an ameliorated PCB design with the incorporation of Super Alloy Power components.



The GTX 750 series consists of GTX750-PH-1GD5 and GTX750-PHOC-1GD5 cards. Both of them come with an integrated Nvidia GM107-300 GPU, equipped with 512 CUDA cores. The first model operates at 1020 MHz/1085 MHz (nominal/boost) frequency, whereas its companion runs at 1059 MHz/1137 MHz. They employ 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, demonstrating 1252 MHz/5010 MHz (nominal/efficient) frequency. The cards also have an identical video interface panel that embraces one HDMI, one D-Sub, and one DVI-D port.


The GTX 750 adapters accommodate analogous cooling system with a single Dust-Proof Fan. The latter is called to keep the …

Graphics Card Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclock Review

The launch of graphics solutions with WindForce 5X cooling system stirred a real boom in the market, giving a special tribute to the products developed by Gigabyte. The company launched two adapters this summer with the implementation of WindForce 5X system and now introduces one more card on its basis. Model Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclock can be called a paragon of efficient performance, overclocking and cooling activities.



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 …

Overclocked Asus Strix R9 380 OC Graphics Card Review

AMD has recently updated its lineup of graphics cards, offering solutions for any taste and budget. Its Radeon R9 380 adapter is an appropriate balance of quality and price. Hence, there is small wonder that all company’s partners rushed into introducing their own versions of the card. The Strix R9 380 OC from Asus is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding interpretations. Let’s see what privileges it boasts.



General Specs


Asus Strix R9 380 OC is based on Antigua Pro GPU (28 nm) that entails 1792 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 11 TMUs. In contrast to the etalon model running at 970 MHz frequency, this card features 990 MHz nominal clock frequency. The codename – Strix-R9380-DC2OC-2GD5-Gaming implies that this item comes equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, operating at 5500 MHz efficient frequency. However, it is assumed that Asus will introduce the version with 4 GB memory to satisfy the needs of a wider audience.
