Rosewill Introduces PSU Line of 80 Plus Platinum Standards

Rosewill, Californian hardware manufacturer, has gladdened its potential customers with a new PSU line codenamed Fortress. The major peculiarity of this line is that all products are characterized by rather high efficiency coefficient: up to 94% in 230 V alternating current networks. The new line involves models of 450W, 550W, 650W, and 750W showings which have already received 80 Plus Platinum certificate.

Low power dissipation is achieved exactly due to the high efficiency which reduces ventilation demands immensely. The employment of 135 mm fans provided for the perceptible decreased of noise. Those features are considered to be the basic attraction for the customers.

All four models in Fortress line are developed according to a similar scheme with a single 12 V bus. The chief differentiation between the models lies in the output capacity and a cable set. Hence, the high-order PSU is capable to give current of up to 62.5 A; in the aggregate with the available 4 …

Colorful Amazes the Public by a One-Slot iGame Graphics Card

Colorful, a Chinese developer of graphics solutions, unveils some details about its new graphics card, codenamed iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim. The most peculiar thing about this card is that it takes only one slot within a PC case, if compared with similar models from other manufacturers. The model's design resembles the one implemented in a 2011 release (iGame GTS 450 Buri-Slim).

Colorful iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim is based on a non-reference printed circuit board; the latter is a bit longer than reference GTX 650 Ti. Hardware base deserves special attention, since it's been given a note of originality, despite being a part of the entry-level adapter. Instead of traditional solid-state capacitors Colorful implemented POSCAP capacitors. Power subsystem is organized according to 3+1 template; it employs high-efficiency transistors designed by ON Semiconductor.

The integrated graphics chip and memory modules of GDDR5 standard operate at 928 MHz and 5400 MHz correspondingly. …

Spire Launches Ridge 6601 and Ridge 6602 PC Chassis

Spire has officially launched a new line of budgetary PC chassis, codenamed Spire Ridge. At the moment, there are only two models within the series – the Ridge 6601 and the Ridge 6602. Both are characterized by the support for ATX motherboards and have many other identical specifications: i.e. mid-tower form-factor, 192x415x418 mm dimensions. Still, there are some differentiations as well.

The first distinction between the two models lies in the frontal panel design. Therefore, Ridge 6601 features a laconic panel made of plastic without additional ventilation. In its turn, Ridge 6602 features a half-perforated metallic frontal panel that allows for a more intense cooling of internal components.

The couple boasts identical expansion facilities with two 5.25-inch buckets for optical drives, four 3.5-inch buckets for HDD/SSD, and seven expansion slots. Connectivity options are introduced by a set of frontal interfaces, including two audio slots, one USB 2.0, and one USB …
