Cooler Master Releases GX II Power Supply Units

Unveiled earlier this year, the GX II PSU series from Cooler Master has been officially released. The series, targeted primarily at gamers, consists of five models with the power index of 450 W, 550 W, 650 W, 750 W, and 850 W. All the products feature 150x140x86 mm dimensions and are characterized by a non-detachable cable design. Moreover, all the models without exception boast the awarding of 80 Plus Bronze certificate, due high efficiency level of 85% on load.

Cooler Master GX II power supplies fully support Intel Core (Haswell-based) CPUs with APCF scheme. All the units are equipped with a sole +12V bus and support a range of protection functions, including OVP, UVP and SCP. A set of non-detachable cables varies depending on the power efficiency. There is a core set of sockets, consisting of the main 24-contact ATX and a pair of 4-contact EPS sockets; all other sockets differ from model to model (four 6+2-pin, three Molex, and nine SATA sockets).

Gigabyte Readies Entry-Level Graphics Card GV-N640D5-2GI

Gigabyte is going to introduce one more entry-level graphics solution that corresponds to the updated Nvidia GeForce GT 640 series. Entitled Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 (GV-N640D5-2GI), the card employs GK107 GPU, running at 1046 MHz frequency instead of the preceding 900 MHz. The core, developed under 28 technological process, utilizes 384 CUDA cores.

It’s necessary to underline that the new-comer differs by the availability of 2 GB memory, whereas all etalon models take 1 GB only. Memory is represented by 64-bit GDDR5 chips that run at 5010 MHz effective frequency, if compared with 1800 MHz frequency that DDR3 modules demonstrate.

GV-N640D5-2GI comes with an improved design of PCB where a brand Ultra Durable 2 concept has been incorporated. This concept implies the employment of a high-quality hardware base, involving durable solid-state capacitors, transistors with low channel resistance RDS (on), and ferrite throttles with reduced power loss. Traditionally, the model …
