Cougar Vortex Fans: the Secret of Success

Nowadays a lot of hardware developers employ Vortex fans from Cougar in the design of various PC components, including CPU coolers and graphics cards. Such demand is primarily explained by an elaborate approach to the fans' framework construction. Profound testing is not the last thing to contribute to the company's success. Indeed, since the launch date in 2011, Vortex line has been enjoying great popularity throughout the world and, especially, on American and European markets.

Therefore, Cougar has designed unique fan impellers that ensure a balanced correlation between such parameters as static pressure, noise level and airflow. The implementation of aerodynamic elements on the internal part of the frame in combination with the grooves on the impellers are able to promote for an improved airflow focusing; this is achieved due to the acceleration of airflow in edge area.

All Vortex fans are based on a hydrodynamic bearing that provides for the prolonged lifetime and …

AOC Takes Pride in a Curved C3583FQ Monitor

AOC is about to release a quite extraordinary monitor – the C3583FQ. This 35-inch curved model can’t boast high resolution index (2560x1080), although it is sure to provide the best image quality without the necessity to pair it with the top-tier graphics card. Relatively big size does not allow for many adjustments; yet, it’s possible to change the slope angle.

AOC C3583FQ is based on AMVA panel with WLED backlight. It ensures the best-in-class specifications: 2000:1 – static contrast, maximal brightness – 300 cd/m2, viewing angles – 178/178 degrees, refresh rate – 48-146 Hz, response time – 5 ms. The radius of curvature does not prevent the full-scale displaying of the developments.

The monitor comes equipped with a pair of 5 W speakers, a pair of 3.5-mm audio ports and five video ports: one DVI, two DisplayPort 1.2+, two HDMI 1.4 with MHL support. The rear panel features VESA bracket to facilitate with wall mounting options. In addition, the new-comer …

King’s on the Footprint: Nvidia Boasts Titan X Adapter

The much-anticipated release of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan X graphics adapter has already come true. The new-comer employs the latest flagship GM200 GPU (Nvidia Maxwell architecture) that comprises 8 billion transistors, 24 SMM blocks (each includes 128 CUDA cores and 8 TMUs). As a result, the GPU consists of 3072 CUDA cores and 192 TMUs – a record-breaking layout. The amount of ROPs makes up 96.

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X runs at 1000 MHz nominal frequency but might be overclocked to 1075 MHz frequency. Memory subsystem is compiled of 12 GB of GDDR5 modules which operate at 7010 MHz frequency. The bandwidth index of 384-bit bus approximates 336.5 Gb/sec. Consequently, an overall computation power is estimated at 7.0 TFLOPS.

Cooling is organized with the assistance of a two-slot cooler with a single fan. Connectivity facilities include three video ports: DisplayPort, DVI-I and HDMI. On active mode, the maximum allowed GPU temperature should not exceed 92 C. The utmost …
