Today, MSI updated their GeForce lineup. The introduction of the MSI GeForce GTX 950 models mark the newest addition to MSI’s line-up of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900 series graphics cards. hey demonstrate just how power efficient NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture can be, using only 75W power while still providing full GeForce® GTX 950 performance. Due to this extreme efficiency, the new MSI GeForce GTX 950 models require no additional power from PEG connectors, but are powered completely through the PCIe slot. The new MSI GeForce GTX 950 models offer gamers with moderate budgets a perfect choice with smooth and solid gaming performance at Full HD, especially
Antec’s new case is the most entry level model in the GX family and the mid-tower case will be priced at about $59 in the US.
Galax has brought out its own addition to add to the growing lineup of small form factor GTX 970s, the new GTX 970 Black Edition and it is only 19cm long.
MSI just announced that they are making a special limited edition version of the Nvidia GTX 970 Gaming 4G, with with an all copper heatsink and heatpipes
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 is Nvidia’s latest and greatest graphics card featuring the company’s new Maxwell GPU architecture. Nvidia claims that Maxwell is able to maintain performance while delivering better power efficiency. Sure, the Kepler architecture brought some amazing improvements when compared to the infamous Fermi architecture, but it was less revolutionary than the Maxwell architecture which debuted last year in the GTX 750 Ti. Below, you can see a single SMM block diagram of the Maxwell architecture, followed by the full GM-204 architecture. Keep in mind that this is not the full-blown version of Maxwell. The GeForce GTX 980 is based upon Nvidia’s GM-204 GPU
Nvidia’s next-generation video card launch details may have been indadvertedly leaked by a Gigabyte executive. In an interview with Expreview, the executive claimed that Nvidia will unveil the GeForce GTX 880 in the month of September, with Gigabyte coming out with a custom card based on the reference design, dubbed the GTX 880 G1.Gamer. Details of the card are scant at this moment, but it is estimated that Gigabyte’s GTX 880 will feature a thermal cooler that can handle loads as high as 650W, and will feature a silent cooling solution that makes little to no noise when running in idle load. Also rumored is
Yes, Asetek was recently granted a patent (2 weeks ago) that basically gave them a blank check to sue anyone that uses an form of liquid (or non-liquid) cooling on any add-in card. That includes any GPUs, RAID controllers, network cards or ANY device that may need additional cooling that isn’t air cooled (passively or not). Obviously, Asetek believed that they could get away with this patent because they wouldn’t directly butt heads with AMD and Nvidia because both of these companies mostly manufacture air cooled graphics cards, so friction is minimal. However, many of their AIBs and aftermarket companies like Swiftech and EK are
