Asus to Start Shipping Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card

Next week Asus is going to start shipping its newest graphics card from Radeon R9 series. Codenamed Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC, it is based on an original PCB with black-and-red design and the incorporation of an exclusive DirectCU II cooling system. Plus, the availability of ‘OC’ in the codename implies the availability of factory overclocking.



Asus Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC takes GCN Hawaii core with 2816 stream processors as the basis. It operates at an overclocked 1000 MHz frequency. The model is equipped with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (512-bit bus) that runs at an effective 5400 MHz frequency. Just for a comparison, etalon adapter from AMD runs at 947 MHz/ 5000 MHz for GPU/memory correspondingly.


DirectCU II cooler consists of a heatsink, four copper nickel-plated heatpipes (two of them feature 10 mm dimensions), and two high-performance fans: one ordinary and one CoolTech. The card receives power via 6+8-pin connectors and might require not less than 600 W PSU.

Gigabyte Debuts with Mini-ITX Motherboard C1007UN-D

Gigabyte has officially introduced a new motherboard model C1007UN-D, developed in mini-ITX form-factor. As seen from the dimensions, the novice is intended to be employed within small-sized multimedia or industrial systems. Chipset Intel NM70 with the integrated two-core ULV processor Intel Celeron 1007U are considered to be the heart of the board. The CPU is cooled down by a compact active cooling system which involves an aluminum heatsink and a small fan.



Video subsystem is represented by an integrated graphics core that belongs to Intel HD Graphics series. The core runs at the nominal 350 MHz clock frequency, however this index might be dynamically increased up to 1000 MHz. Audio subsystem is realized by means of Realtek ALC887 controller that supports 7.1-channel sounding. Network facilities (LAN) are ensured due to a pair of gigabit controllers elaborated by Realtek.


To continue, memory subsystem consists of two DIMM slots which support up to 8 GB modules of DDR3-1333 …

ECS Intros a Series of H81 Motherboards with Durathon Support

ECS proudly introduces a series of new motherboards, based on Intel H81 Express chipset. The series consists of three models (H81H3-A3, H81H3-M7, H81H3-I) that support Socket LGA1150 platform and are ready to work with Intel Haswell processors. All three products are developed in different form-factors: standard ATX, microATX and mini-ITX. Therefore, the users have got a chance to choose which item is more appropriate for the assembling of systems with various performance requirements.



Despite the fact that the new-comers position themselves as entry-level solutions, ECS has taken care of their reliability and stability of operation. Therein, it incorporated Durathon technology, which is responsible for the products’ eligible work during a long period of time. Durathon implies the employment of a PCB with high density in order to protect the components from the detrimental effect of moisture, the replacement of standard capacitors to solid-state analogues with prolonged …
