Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.



Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.


As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.


It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …

GeForce GTX 660/650 Ti/650 will be released in one week

An American website presented its version of the sequence of announcements of mainstream and mid-range graphics card Nvidia Kepler. It was reported earlier that the model GeForce GTX 660 will debut at retail simultaneously with the GTX 660 Ti (August 16), but as it turned out, this is not the case: despite the inclusion of systems into packages, this adapter will be available for purchase as a separate product only on the third week of September, ie from 17 to 23.



Preliminarily, GeForce GTX 660 is based on a 28-nm core Nvidia GK106-200-A2, which includes 960-1152 stream processors and 192-bit memory bus that connects the GPU with chips GDDR5 in the amount of 1.5-2 GB. The recommended price is expected to be around $ 230.


From 17 to 23 September also will be available in sale the GeForce GTX 650 Ti and GeForce GTX 650. The first is based on the graphics core GK106, but with 4-5 streaming multiprocessors SMX or 768-960 shader blocks. The total volume of GDDR5 chips will be 1 …

Greeting Small-Sized HIS R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

The middle-end lineup of HIS’ proprietary graphics cards has been refilled with a new small-sized model: the R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5. It features 190x125x45 mm dimensions and maintains an etalon clock frequency template. Hence, its price won’t differ too much from the recommended one. The new-comer boasts a bright design with a blue PCB and light-blue fan blades. Despite the appurtenance to the middle-end segment, the card is able to demonstrate quite an appropriate performance.



As seen from the codename, HIS R9 270 iCooler Boost Clock 2GB GDDR5 is equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 video memory. The latter employs 256-bit interface and runs at 1400 MHz (nominal)/5600 MHz (effective) frequency. The heart of the card is AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU (28 nm, Curacao Pro architecture) with 1280 stream processors, 80 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. Its basic clock frequency makes up 900 MHz, while on overclocking this index rises to 925 MHZ.
