Chieftec Launches Smart SFX-500GD-C Power Supply

Chieftec has been always known as a quick-change artist in the hardware market. As a rule, SFX power supply units can’t boast high power or productive cooling. However, far otherwise is Chieftec that proves the contrary. Its latest Smart SFX-500GD-C solution is a combination of an astounding efficiency and a full-blown 120 mm fan. Due to this, the model has been certified to work as a part of Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX graphics configurations.



Chieftec Smart SFX-500GD-C features 125x135x64 mm dimensions. Offering 500 W power, it provides for more than 90% efficiency in the majority of workloads. Herein, there in small wonder that this model has won 80Plus Gold certificate. Reliability is the other distinctive feature ascribed to this PSU. It is backed by a single +12V rail with the output capability of 40A. An overall charging power of +3.3V and +5V rails makes up 150W.


This allows for the creation of a high-performance system with a flagship CPU and a top-tier GPU. …

Preliminary specifications and release date of GeForce GTX 6500

It is known that it will be based on the graphic chip GK104 and have a more modest power system than the GTX 670. Crippled in its capability GPU GK104 will form the basis for GeForce GTX 660 and, probably, GTX 650 Ti. Boards of mainstream class and below will use the processor GK107.



Actually, GK107 is already present in the market as part of the line of video cards GeForce GT 640, but it limits the potential by slower memory DDR3. Release of modifications GT 640 with GDDR5 chips on board, according to foreign analytics is just a matter of time.


It is believed that the GeForce GT 640 GDDR5 will receive commercial name GeForce GTX 650. This assumption is not without logic, because it will be easier for Nvidia to sell large quantities of video cards (notice how long the Santa Clara did not …
