Colorful Amazes the Public by a One-Slot iGame Graphics Card

Colorful, a Chinese developer of graphics solutions, unveils some details about its new graphics card, codenamed iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim. The most peculiar thing about this card is that it takes only one slot within a PC case, if compared with similar models from other manufacturers. The model's design resembles the one implemented in a 2011 release (iGame GTS 450 Buri-Slim).

Colorful iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim is based on a non-reference printed circuit board; the latter is a bit longer than reference GTX 650 Ti. Hardware base deserves special attention, since it's been given a note of originality, despite being a part of the entry-level adapter. Instead of traditional solid-state capacitors Colorful implemented POSCAP capacitors. Power subsystem is organized according to 3+1 template; it employs high-efficiency transistors designed by ON Semiconductor.

The integrated graphics chip and memory modules of GDDR5 standard operate at 928 MHz and 5400 MHz correspondingly. …

Gigabyte Outs a Pair of GT 710 Graphics Cards

Gigabyte has just announced the release of two entry-level graphics cards (with 1 GB or 2 GB DDR3) based on Nvidia’s GeForce GT 710 adapter. The company’s elaboration boasts the implementation of Ultra Durable 2 design that combines top-quality hardware base, reliability and high performance. The card comprises an improved PCB with the best-in-class solid-state capacitors, transistors as well as ferrite chokes.

Despite low-profile orientation, Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 employs active cooling system. The latter consists of a small-sized heatsink and a fan. In terms of efficiency, the company decided to preserve etalon showings; hence, the GPU (GK208, Kepler architecture, 192 CUDA cores) operates at 954 MHz frequency. Yet, the models come equipped with an overclocked memory: 900 MHz/1800 MHz (base/dynamic) frequency.

The kit of external interfaces includes three video ports: D-Sub, DVI-D & HDMI. Moreover, the nominal delivery set contains OC Guru II software package. It …

Greeting Small-Sized J1800I Motherboard from MSI

MSI has recently added J1800I model to its mini-ITX motherboards inventory. The new-comer features 170x170 mm dimensions and is characterized by a low power consumption level. This makes it a desirable acquirement for builders of small-sized, power-efficient PC systems and multimedia devices. The board boasts Military Class 4 design that involves high-quality hardware components, including Dark Chokes and solid-state capacitors.

MSI J1800I is based on Intel Celeron J1800 CPU (22 nm) that runs at 2.41 GHz frequency but might be overclocked to 2.58 GHz. It consumes only 10 W power, being cooled down by a single aluminum heatsink. The PCB accommodates two SO-DIMM slots for two-channel DDR3 memory modules with the maximum frequency of 1333 MHz and the maximum capacity of 8 GB.

To continue, the hardware inventory embraces two SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports for the connection of drives. The availability of one PCI Express 2.0 x 1 slot enables the connection of a supplementary expansion …
