MSI Unveils New Gaming Graphics Card GeForce GTX 760 Hawk

MSI has recently introduced its newest graphics adapter with the support of Twin BIOS technology. Codenamed MSI GeForce GTX 760 Hawk, the card positions itself as an optimal solution for inveterate gamers, as well as for overclockers. The new-comer is based on Nvidia’s GK104 GPU (28 nm technological process) with 1152 CUDA cores. It runs on dynamically heightened frequencies, as compared with the reference model.

Therefore, the nominal clock frequency has been raised from 980 MHz to 1033 MHz, whereas the overclocked frequency has jumped from 1111 MHz to 1176 MHz. As for the memory, represented by 2 GB GDDR5 modules with 256-bit rail, its frequency index has not undergone any changes: 1502 MHz/6008 MHz (nominal/overclocked).

To continue, GTX 760 Hawk takes a fully modified 8-layer PCB as the basis. GPU power supply is ensured by means of an efficient power converter and prime-quality Military Class 4 components, including solid-state Hi-C CAP capacitors with tantalum …

Arctic to Release Coolers Specifically for Nvidia Graphics Cards

Arctic Cooling AG is going to release a new air cooling system destined particularly for Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 graphics solutions. Codenamed Accelero Twin Turbo 690, this new cooler is differentiated by better efficiency and practically imperceptible noise level. This model features 288x138x50 mm and weighs 805 g. The nominal delivery set of Accelero Twin Turbo 690 includes fixture kit, brand thermal compound Arctic MX-4, and thermal padding.

New cooling system consists of aluminum base with two copper sills, ten copper heat pipes (6 mm each in depth), a couple of 120 mm fans, and two-section aluminum radiator that contains eighty-six plates. Fans are developed on hydrodynamic bearing and can be monitored by a special facility; rotational speed can be automatically altered by means of pulse width modulation and fluctuate within the measures of 400 rpm to 1500 rpm.

According to the words of the company's developers, Accelero Twin Turbo 690 is capable to manage up to 400W …

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 …
