New details about the video card Colorful iGame GTX 680

In June, at Computex 2012 exhibition Chinese manufacturer of Colorful graphics cards announced its plans to release GeForce GTX 680 model with a passive cooling system. These «monsters», of course, require careful laboratory testing, so retail sales of iGame GTX 680 will not be performed at least until upcoming autumn.

Meanwhile, the upcoming release collects more and more of new details. According to the manufacture, graphic card is equipped with a reinforced VRM and dual memory — 4 GB of GDDR5. The power connectors PCI-E Power 8-pin made are located on the back of the PCB.

There are only three video outputs, as opposed to the reference, but all of full-size — DVI-I, HDMI and DisplayPort. The exact code name of the model looks like following «GK104HA-D32».

Nvidia Announces Quadro K6000 Professional Graphics Solution

Nvidia is going to release a new graphics card for professional use from Quadro series. Entitled Quadro K6000, it is targeting high-performance workstations, due to an uncommon computing efficiency with 5.2 TFLOPS single precision. This graphics adapter fully utilizes the computing possibilities of GK110 GPU and accommodates 12 GB(!) memory to lead across the segment.

Nvidia Quadro K6000 is based on GK110 graphics core (Kepler 28 nm architecture). As distinct from mainstream customer-oriented versions with neutered core – Titan, GeForce GTX 780/770 – this model employs a full-fledge core. This results in the augmentation of CUDA cores up to 2880 items, ROPs — up to 48 items, and TMUs — up to 256 items. GK110 here runs at 900 MHz.

In reference to GDDR5 video memory, its overall capacity makes up 12 GB, which is twice more than mainstream processors have. Its nominal clock frequency equals to 1502 MHz, while its effective index rises up to 6008 MHz. The connection …

Gelid SlimHero Gains an Off-the-Shelf Product Status

First seen at CeBIT exhibition, CPU cooler SlimHero from Gelid has turned into an off-the-shelf product. The new-comer joined Gelid Silent cooler series and is already available for customers at the price of around $32. The major distinctive peculiarity applied to the cooler is its framework: it features only 59 mm height that is quite appropriate for the installation into small-sized mini-ITX/mini-Tower PC cases or into advanced HTPC systems.

At the same time, SlimHero is equipped with four copper heat pipes, a range of aluminum ribs, and 120 mm fan. The employment of copper in the design of heat pipes is to significantly increase heat transfer to the ribs. Moreover, their original shape ensures low resistance to airflow, resulting in a more efficient cooling process.

Gelid SlimHero demonstrates wide compatibility with a lump of present-day desktop platforms: AMD Socket FM1, FM2, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, as well as Intel LGA 775, 1150, 1155, 1156, 1366. According to Gelid …
