Greeting Asus ROG Ares III Graphics Card with Double GPU Performance

Republic of Gamers devotees have been pleased with yet another addition to Ares series of graphics cards – the Asus ROG Ares III. It is a new powerful model based on two AMD Radeon R9 290X (Hawaii XT) GPUs, each of which cooperates with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory. At its core, this is a modified version of AMD Radeon R9 295X2 videocard, although with some perceptible changes. Potential customers will receive AMD Radeon Gold Reward warrant and a flash-memory card (8 GB) as an additional bonus. It’s worth of acquiring, isn’t it?

Asus ROG Ares III operates at heightened clock frequencies – 1030 MHz – if compared with Radeon R9 295X2 model that runs at 1018 MHz. Each memory module with 512-bit interface runs at 1250 MHz (nominal) frequency, but is able to accelerate up to 5.0 GHz (effective) index. The new-comer employs 16-phase power supply subsystem (Asus Digi+ VRM) that accommodates high-quality components Asus Super Alloy Power, i.e. Japanese solid-state capacitors from …

Scythe Teases a Hard-Hitting Ninja 4 CPU Cooler

Scythe Co. Ltd., an award-winning Japanese designer of enthusiast-level cooling solutions, has expanded its Ninja series of CPU coolers with another model – Ninja 4. The new-comer boasts 130x155x153 mm dimensions and supports all updated platforms developed by AMD and Intel, including Intel LGA 2011-3. Currently, pricing info and release date remain undefined.

Colorful Amazes the Public by a One-Slot iGame Graphics Card

Colorful, a Chinese developer of graphics solutions, unveils some details about its new graphics card, codenamed iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim. The most peculiar thing about this card is that it takes only one slot within a PC case, if compared with similar models from other manufacturers. The model's design resembles the one implemented in a 2011 release (iGame GTS 450 Buri-Slim).

Colorful iGame GTX 650 Ti Buri-Slim is based on a non-reference printed circuit board; the latter is a bit longer than reference GTX 650 Ti. Hardware base deserves special attention, since it's been given a note of originality, despite being a part of the entry-level adapter. Instead of traditional solid-state capacitors Colorful implemented POSCAP capacitors. Power subsystem is organized according to 3+1 template; it employs high-efficiency transistors designed by ON Semiconductor.

The integrated graphics chip and memory modules of GDDR5 standard operate at 928 MHz and 5400 MHz correspondingly. …
