Meet the 2nd Generation of Maximus 2 Platform from Nvidia

Last November Nvidia 'shattered' the IT market with its Maximus platform. Currently, the company is officially presenting the second generation of the platform – Maximus 2. The new platform is based on the advanced GPUs which employ Kepler architecture. The major task assigned to the Maximus 2 is to provide an unmatched performance and efficiency in quite different spheres of enterprise, starting from computer graphics and finishing with oil industry. Besides, it has got improved facilities of virtualization and analyzing activities.



According to the data claimed by the manufacturer, workstations developed on Maximus 2 platform will be put into sale already this December. It is already known that there are a number of companies that will employ Nvidia Maximus 2 in their product lines. Hence, such companies as Dell, HP, Lenovo, Supermicro, and BOXX technologies will introduce their workstations based on this platform.


It should be stated that the second generation of …

The 16 nm Colorful iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC Video Adapter Features Essential Overclocking

Enthusiasts are in anticipation of the iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC video card retail launch, which is coming soon. The highlight of this Colorful product is the LCD-display on the cooler case reflecting key operational options of the device.



iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC is based on the NVIDIA GP102 processor with Pascal architecture. The profile of this 16 nm specialty includes 3,584 streaming processors, 224 TMUs, as well as 88 ROPs. The GDDR5X memory capacity comes up to 11 GB.


The Colorful graphics card obtained the striking factory overclock. The adapter GPU clock is 1,480 MHz, and the boost clock equals to 1,582 MHz. The novelty works at the 1.6 GHz basic frequency, however, the ultimate clock speed is 2 GHz.


A powerful cooler with three 92 mm fans and six heat pipes ensures proper chilling of this graphics accelerator. Thus, we can assume, that this product weighs much.


Unfortunately, we have no data about the cost of iGame GTX 1080 Ti Vulcan X OC.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Card Has Much In Common With Titan X, but Holds More Elements

Several days ago Nvidia has introduced its most effective consumer graphics card, namely GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. It is GP102 GPU based and holds 3,584 CUDAs. This device resembles the Titan X sample. Its graphics engine is the same, however, the number of ROP units (96) is higher, the memory bus (384 bits) is wider, the memory volume (12 GB) is bigger, frequencies are higher, and the price is much lower!



As it turned out, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is produced with a PC-board of its high-end counterpart, but there are differences in electronic components. Thus, the power subsystem has been refined due to the duplicated quantity of MOSFET transistors. Now it is possible to overclock the adapter to higher frequencies. GTX 1080 Ti has got nine extra solid capacitors. The absence of a DVI port provides more vents on the back panel.


In general, for public users this product almost copies the more expensive Titan X model and at the same time can be more productive in games.
