Meeting New GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC Video Card from Asus

Tailored for mini-ITX motherboards, Asus has designed a new graphics card based on GeForce GTX 970 adapter. The GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC features 170x122x40 mm dimensions only, targeting small-sized chassis for mini-ITX platforms. The heart of the card is Nvidia’s GM204-200-A1 GPU with 13 SMM blocks, 1664 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. It runs at the nominal 1088 MHz frequency but might be overclocked to 1228 MHz index.



Asus GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC employs a shortcut PCB that accommodates a two-slot cooler with a vapor chamber, a backplate, and a high-efficiency CoolTech Fan. The latter is distinguished by a unique design that dramatically enhances airflow. The incorporated hardware base features Super Alloy Power design. It implies the inclusion of prime-quality chokes, capacitors, and power transistors. Their combination provides for some incredible efficiency and a prolonged lifespan.


The integrated GPU is accompanied with 4GB of GDDR5 memory; it …

The New Microchip PIC16F15386 Microcontroller Line Includes 13 Models

The Microchip Technology Co. has presented a new family of eight-bit PIC microcontrollers with core-independent peripherals. Among common features of these models one can highlight the presence of the internal frequency generator (32 MHz) and the memory boot partition security mechanism meant for protection from the faulty rerecording. Moreover, there is a secure device information area (DIA) storing the device unique identifier and calibration constants. The just-launched controllers are supported by the Microchip MPLAB Xpress with MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) framework.



This line of products offers 13 samples possessing 2 Kbyte of RAM and up to 28 Kbyte of onboard flash. The specialties are incorporated into PDIP, SOIC, DFN, UDFN, UQFN and SSOP cases with an 8–48 pin count. The number of ADC and I/O channels has increased.


Presentation samples as well as stock-produced items are already available. Wholesale prices start with $0.33 per unit.

Customers Are Welcome to Put to a Test New Low-Profile GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti Graphics Cards from Zotac

Recently the product range of the Zotac Co. has been replenished with two novelties – GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards.



The names suggest that these video cards are of a low profile and represent the most affordable models of the Pascal generation. GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti are fully identic outwardly and feature the same PC-boards, as well as cooling systems with a pair of compact fans. The adapters are of 144.78 х 111.15 mm dimensions.


The lower-order card offers 2 GB of memory, 1,354/1,455 MHz frequency ratio for a core and 7,000 MHz frequency for memory. The higher-end device features 1,290/1,392 MHz and 7,000 MHz frequencies respectively. Memory is doubled. The auxiliary power is not required. When considering the interface set one can distinguish a DisplayPort, an HDMI and a DVI port.
