Asus to Start Shipping Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card

Next week Asus is going to start shipping its newest graphics card from Radeon R9 series. Codenamed Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC, it is based on an original PCB with black-and-red design and the incorporation of an exclusive DirectCU II cooling system. Plus, the availability of ‘OC’ in the codename implies the availability of factory overclocking.



Asus Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC takes GCN Hawaii core with 2816 stream processors as the basis. It operates at an overclocked 1000 MHz frequency. The model is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (512-bit bus) that runs at an effective 5400 MHz frequency. Just for a comparison, etalon adapter from AMD runs at 947 MHz/ 5000 MHz for GPU/memory correspondingly.


DirectCU II cooler consists of a heatsink, four copper nickel-plated heatpipes (two of them feature 10 mm dimensions), and two high-performance fans: one ordinary and one CoolTech. The card receives power via 6+8-pin connectors and might require not less than 600 W PSU.

AOC Launches Earlier Announced q2963Pm Monitor

AOC has finally put its new monitor, codenamed q2963Pm, on sale.

AOC q2963Pm employs IPS panel type that ensures high resolution showings: 2560x1080. The display aspect ratio equals to 21:9, whilst array response time does not go beyond 5 ms (in GtG mode). The implementation of an advance panel promotes for the utmost viewing properties. Therefore, the monitor offers wide viewing angles in both vertical and horizontal aspects (178/178 degrees), maximal brightness of 250 nits, typical static contrast – 1000:1, and rather high dynamic contrast – 5 million to 1. Besides, q2963Pm is equipped with a power-saving WLED based on white diodes. The …

Cooler Master V4 GTS Review: CPU Cooler with a Horizontal Vapor Chamber

The emergence of high-efficient processors incited the necessity to provide high-efficient cooling. It’s not a secret that utmost system performance directly depends upon CPU conditions. The more intense the loading is, the more appropriate thermal environment should be. Here everything is interrelated. Cooler Master, being one of the foremost global manufacturers of cooling solutions, always tries to comply with the rising demands to CPU thermal conditions. Thus, the launch of another cooler intended for extreme heat dissipation was quite an expected event. Codenamed V4 GTS, the product differentiates itself by the availability of a horizontal vapor chamber that enhances the cooling effect.
