EVGA Preps Custom GTX 1080 Ti Cards

EVGA presents a trio of custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards, all featuring the company's iCX cooling technology to provide users with granular temperature monitoring and control.

According to the company, iCX involves the embedding of 9 thermal sensors into the card circuit board. The sensors pick up extra heat and direct the asynchronous fans to cool the card down accordingly. Users also get "interactive cooling" through a "thermal LED display system," allowing them to check the sensors in real time.

The SC Black Edition is the entry level option. It features a simplified dual-fan version of the iCX cooler without the thermal sensors, and offers overclocked core speeds of 1556MHz base and 1670MHz boost. Following it is the SC2, a card featuring the same dual-fan setup and overclocked speeds together with iCX sensors.

MSI Prepares for AMD Ryzen CPUs

MSI is ready for the launch of the latest AMD desktop CPUs with a selection of Ryzen-ready AM4 motherboards featuring mainstream B350 and high-end X370 chipsets.

Lower-end customers get a choice of 3 B350 motherboards-- the Tomahawk, Mortar and Gaming Pro, all compatible with Summit Ridge Ryzen chips and the upcoming 7th generation Bristol Ridge APUs. The B350M Gaming and B350M Mortar are microATX boards with metal-reinforced PCIe x16 slots, four SATA 6Gbps ports and an M.2 PCIe slots. Both have red LED illumination and the Gaming has red silscreening on the PCB.

The B350 Tomahawk is a full-size ATX option, with two steel-plated PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, four SATA 6Gbps connectors, NVMe M.2 slot and a pair of PCI ports.

Cooler Master Intros MasterWatt Maker 1200 PSU

Cooler Master launches the MasterWatt Maker 1200-- a 1200W PSU co-developed with Japanese manufacturer Murata in celebration of the company's 25th anniversary.

First revealed back at CES 2017, the MasterWatt Maker 1200 is made in Japan using a combination of Japanese and German components. It claims over 80 Plus Titanium efficiency and features a 135mm Silencio FP fan that only starts spinning once the supply hits 50% load.

Raspberry Pi Celebrates Birthday With Pi Zero W

The Raspberry Pi celebrates its 5th birthday with the launch of the Pi Zero W-- an update on the 2015 Pi Zero complete with wifi and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Pi Zero W carries the same specifications as its predecessor on a slim single-sided board, namely a 1GHz single-core Broadcom BCM2835 CPU, 512MB RAM, mini-HDMI port, micro-USB port and a HAT-compatible 40-pin header. Wireless connectivity comes through the addition of a Cypress CYW-43438 chip, the same found in the Raspberry Pi Model B.

Nvidia Presents

Nvidia uses the Game Developers Conference to present what it claims is its fastest gaming GPU yet-- the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, graphics card offering "35% more performance" than the base GTX 1080.

Providing the GTX 1080 Ti with more power is 11GB of next generation GDDR5X VRAM running at 11Gbps. In comparison, the regular GTX 1080 has 8GB of memory, while the RAM inside the powerhouse Titan X runs at a slower speed of 10Gbps. Manufacturing comes courtesy of a FinFET process giving the card 12 billion transistors.

AMD Presents Ryzen Desktop CPUs

AMD returns to the high performance processor game with Ryzen 7-- a CPU family based around Zen architecture, with 8-core, 16-thread parts and 16MB level 3 cache shared across all cores.

According to the company, Ryzen 7 CPUs can do 52% more work per cycle than a similarly-clocked predecessor, thanks to a 14nm manufacturing process, a 5x increase in bandwidth and the architectural changes brought about by Ze. The processors also support simultaneous multithreading (the AMD take on Intel's Hyper-Threading), allowing each core to execute 2 code paths simultaneously.

EVGA Cools GeForce Cards With iCX

EVGA Cools GeForce Cards With iCX

EVGA is taking the issue of PC overheating very seriously with iCX-- a graphics card cooling system using 10 sensors linked to independent microcontrollers to ensure fine-tuned control over card temperature.

The launch comes after November 2016 reports of EVGA GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 graphics cards catching fire after getting a bit too hot to handle. The company quickly released a patch to resolve the issue, but the iCX system takes cooling a step further.

As the company puts it, iCX involves the embedding of 9 thermal sensors into the card circuit board. The sensors pick up extra heat and direct the asynchronous fans to cool the card down accordingly. Users also get "interactive cooling" through a "thermal LED display system," allowing them to check the sensors in real time.

The Passive-Cooled Palit GeForce GTX 1050 Card

Palit Microsystems announces what is possibly the first GTX 1050 Ti graphics card with passive cooling-- the Palit GeForce GTX 1050 Ti KalmX.

According to the company, the KalmX allows customers to play modern games at "full 1080p HD @ 60fps" while enjoying a "silent 0dB gaming environment." The card does this through a unique cooler, with chunky conducting metal construction connected directly to the CPU via copper base. Twin nickel-plated heat pipes pierce the copper block, bend round and thread through many nickel-plated fins.

An included ThunderMaster program provides means to monitor the GPU and boost performance accordingly.

Corsair Defies Boundaries With One PC

Corsair claims to have a "category defying PC"-- the One, the first pre-configured and branded PC from the company, with a design sitting somewhere between a gaming desktop PC and the Apple Mac Pro cylinder.

Details on the One are scant, although it is described it as "a machine built from the ground up to power anything and everything you love to do." Being a PC gaming compact vendor, Corsair will probably fill the machine with powerful hardware and plenty of memory and storage, although the actual tower looks fairly compact.
