Asus Unveils GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU II OC Black Graphics Card

Asus is about to release another addition to the GeForce GTX 970 series of adapters – the GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU II OC Black. This videocard is differentiated by a totally black exterior (including PCB, fans and heatpipes) with bright-red details. Besides, it might boast the implementation of a factory overclocking as well as an advanced cooling system. Asus recommends selling the new-comer at the price tag of about 400 EUR.



Asus GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU II OC Black is based on Nvidia Maxwell GM204 GPU with 1664 stream processors, 64 ROPs, and 104 TMUs. It runs at 1114 MHz (nominal)/1253 MHz (dynamic) clock frequencies. The card is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface), operating at 7000 MHz frequency. The integrated rear panel accommodates three DisplayPort video ports, one DVI and one HDMI 2.0 ports.


This adapter is thought to support all standard Nvidia’s technologies, DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.4 standards, 4-way SLI technology (2x Nvidia SLI …

ARM Readies Cortex-A72 and Mali-T880 for Mobile Devices

ARM has just announced a series of solutions for the upcoming next-generation mobile SoC. The most notable developments are Cortex-A72 processor and Mali-T880 graphics. According to the manufacturer, both components will be interconnected within SoC by means of CoreLink – CCI-500. The launch of new items is scheduled for 2016. Rockchip, MediaTek and HiSilicon are among the companies to integrate both elaborations into their products.



It should be noted that Cortex- A72 is a successor of Cortex-A57, taking analogous 64-bit operations but demonstrating three times higher performance. The new-comer will be designed under 16 nm FinFET+ technological process. Its layout corresponds to big.LITTLE framework requirements; this promotes for its combination with other ARM cores.


As far as Mali-T880 GPU is concerned, it provides for 1.8 response time increase if compared with the Mali-T760 model. Herewith, its power consumption is reduced by 40%. Moreover, this GPU might support 4K …

An All-new Series of Super Flower Power Supply Units Is Introduced by 10 Devices of 400–850 W Capacity

The Super Flower Co. is widely known by virtue of its 80Plus Titanium power modules. At present this manufacturer is going to present a cutting-edge series of low-profile devices.



The latest line will include ten power supplies, the capacity of which varies in the range of 400–850 W depending on the model. Those of them providing 750 W and more will get partially detachable cables.


Being optimized by Super Flower professionals, the topological layout of these Super Flower products is based on the two-transistor forward converter. PWM and PFC schemes are designed with a Fairchild controller and Infineon field-effect transistors. Hardware components also incorporate STMicroelectronics and Mospec diodes, a Fujitsu relay and a Teapo electrolytic capacitor.


All models of this series are intended for Super Flower OEM customers and comply with 80Plus Bronze standards.
