Asus Launches Top-Notch ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti Graphics Card

Asus is happy to introduce, upon its own statement, the most efficient graphics card based on Nvidia’s GTX 980 adapter. The ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti is by 18.7% faster than all other reference analogues. Its advantage in some gaming applications achieves stunning 21.6%. Besides, the customers are able to further boost its performance due to ROG GPU Tweak II utility.

Asus ROG Matrix GTX 980 Ti employs an overclocked version of GM200-310 GPU. In OC gaming mode its clock frequencies make up 1216 MHz/1317 MHz (base/dynamic), whereas in Gaming mode these showings achieve 1190 MHz/1290 MHz margin. As far as memory is concerned, it’s introduced by GDDR5 modules (6 GB, 384-bit rail), running at 7200 MHz frequency.

Cooling is entrusted to DirectCU II cooler with direct touch technology and a pair of fans. The latter provide for the decrease of heat by 30% as well as triple cut of noise level, if compared with the reference cooler. Power is supplied via two 8-pin connectors.

Antec Replenishes High Current Gamer M Series with Two New PSUs

Antec decided to expand its renowned High Current Gamer M series of power supply units with two new models. Codenamed HCG-750M and HCG-850M, the units are characterized by modular cable connectivity and rather high level of efficiency (up to 81% in 230V networks). Not for nothing this couple is honored by 80Plus Bronze certificate that vindicates their prime-quality. It must be noted that existent internal framework is totally the work of Seasonic, Antec’s contractor.

Both new-comers are equipped with four PCI Express Power (6+2)-pin cables and support 10/12/14/16-contact power sockets. The layout consists of two virtual +12V rails, Active PFC mechanism, and high-class Japanese capacitors. HCG-750M allows for the maximal loading on +12V rail of 62A at 744W, whereas HCG-850M allows a bit higher loading of 70A at 840W.

With the purpose to prolong the units’ lifetime, Antec furnished the models with all up-dated security functions, featuring: UVP (low voltage protection), …

Evga Debuts with a First-Rate ACX CPU Cooler

Evga, a company primarily known for high-end graphics solutions, decided to expand its production line by entering cooling market. Herein, it elaborated a first-rate CPU cooler, entitled ACX (codename: 100-FS-C201-KR). The new-comer features 164x134.5x91.5 mm dimensions and weighs 1065 g. Luckily, it can be already found in free sale for a price of $50.

The ACX is a tower-like air cooler that is able to efficiently remove heat from all processors that are compatible with the following sockets: Intel LGA 2011/1156/1155/1366/1150/775 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3/AM3+/AM2/AM2+.

Evga ACX consists of an aluminum heatsink, five copper heatpipes that support Direct Touch technology, and one PWM fan of 120 mm dimensional type. The heatsink is composed of multiple thin plates, which differentiate themselves by an unusual framework. Such framework enables the emergence of two airflows around the heatpipes. According to Evga, this promotes for a better heat removal process.
