Asus Launches Black-and-White Version of GTX 950 Adapter

Asus has added to its product line a graceful black-and-white videocard, based on GeForce GTX 950 adapter. The heart of the model is an overclocked GM206-250 GPU. Its key differentiation is the possibility to operate in two modes: Gaming – 1076/1188 MHz (base/dynamic) clock frequency & OC – 1102/1279 MHz (base/dynamic). The customer is free to switch between the profiles where relevant.

The GPU, featuring 768 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 48 TMUs, is paired with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs at reference 6610 MHz frequency (128-bit rail). The interface panel consists of three video outputs: HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort and DVI-I.

The PCB boasts the implementation of Super Alloy Power II components as well as totally automatic hardware assembly line. The latter became possible thanks to Asus Auto-Extreme technology.

As far as cooling is concerned, Asus GeForce GTX 950 (codename: GTX950-OC-2GD5) is equipped with a two-slot cooler. Its framework embraces an aluminum heatsink …

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 …

AMD Officially Launches FreeSync Technology

The much-talked about graphical technology from AMD – FreeSync – is already out. Its privileges over rival solutions might be seen from different angles. To begin with, it dramatically optimizes the gameplay by improving image smoothness, reducing lag time, and eliminating splitting. FreeSync enables the synchronization of screen refresh time with GPU refresh time in real time; hence, images are updated only when the graphical adapter shapes the frame.

To continue, AMD FreeSync, is an open standard which does not require calculations, since it is integrated within an updated DisplayPort 1.2a interface. As distinct from Nvidia’s G-Sync, there is no need to equip the monitor with a dedicated module. Moreover, this technology supports the widest refresh range: 9-240 Hz; therefore, monitors manufacturers receive a tool for a standalone definition of operational limits for a particular model.

Currently, FreeSync is implemented within six graphics adapters and within …
