Gigabyte Intros Micro-ATX Motherboards on Intel H81 Express Chipset

Gigabyte Technology introduces three new motherboards of micro-ATX form-factor, based on Intel H81 Express chipset. The new-comers, entitled GA-H81M-DS2, GA-H81M-D3V and GA-H81M-D2V, are equipped with LGA1150 socket that supports Intel Haswell CPUs. Their efficiency and durability is the result of the implementation of Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Plus concept, On/Off Charge and UEFI DualBIOS technologies, as well as of prime capacitors with a solid electrolyte. Each motherboard is unique, so the specifications of each item are worth of being detailed.

Gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2 features:

— 226 x 170 mm dimensions;

— the possibility of integrating up to 16 GB of two-channel DDR3 memory with up to 1600 MHz frequency;

— a pair of SATA II and SATA III ports;

— a pair of PCI Express x1 slots and a single PCI Express x16 slot;

— gigabit Ethernet port;

— Realtek ALC887 controller with the support of HD Audio sounding;

— rear I/O panel with RJ-45 port, D-Sub, …

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 …

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 …
