Greeting PowerColor Radeon R9 290X New-Generation Graphics Cards

PowerColor has officially introduced a pair of high-efficiency graphics cards developed on the new-generation Radeon R9 290X series adapters. Codenamed PowerColor Radeon R9 290X, both new-comers support the latest graphics technologies, i.e. DirectX 11.2 and OpenGL 4.2. The models feature a totally identical design, still there is one differentiation: one of the models is equipped with a key to Battlefield 4 game. Such ‘bonus’ has resulted in a bit heightened price of $580, if compared with the standard model that costs $550.

Both cards are based on AMD Hawaii XT chip. It has been dynamically overclocked by PowerColor to 1030 MHz, whereas the nominal clock frequency remained the same – 800 MHz. In order to enhance the performance, the GPU has been supplemented with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory with 512-bit interface that runs at 5000 MHz.

To proceed with the specifications, both graphics adapters accommodate four rear video ports (HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-I, and DVI-D). …

Cooler Master Gets Ready to Roll Out a Powerful V8 GTS Cooling System

Cooler Master is going to release V8 GTS CPU cooling system – the newest addition to V-series products. The model has got a spectacular design with a large heatsink block, two high-performance fans, and black plastic coverage. The overall cooler’s dimensions make up 154x149.8x166.5 mm. V8 GTS is differentiated also by a high compatibility with a range of CPU sockets, naming AMD AM2/AM2+, AM3/AM3+, FM2/FM1 and Intel LGA2011/1366/1156/1155/1150/775.

Unlike other air-coolers, an elaboration from Cooler Master can boast the availability of a vapor chamber in the framework. This chamber is known to spread heat much faster than heatpipes do and protects the CPU from overheating on heightened loading. Moreover, the presence of this vapor chamber guarantees that the heat is evenly distributed between all incorporated heat pipes.

Except the above mentioned components, V8 GTS framework consists of three independent heatsink blocks, eight copper heat pipes, and a pair of 140 mm …

PowerColor Develops Radeon HD 7850 with Passive Cooling System

PowerColor decided to rouse the curiosity of those customers who would like to enhance their gaming experience by total silence.

Unfortunately, the company does not unveil any data concerning an official presentation, release date or approximate price of the product. Nonetheless, the first online appearance is called to raise positive suspension.

PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 will be furnished with a two-slot cooler consisting of several heatsink blocks with a large dissipation area. Those blocks include a range of aluminum plates, joint by a complex heat pipe system. A ramified heat pipe scheme plays a key role here, since it accelerates the transition of heat from GPU to the heatsinks. No other specifications are available so far. Still, the …
