ASUS as expected has announced their Republic of Gamers ARES III graphics card at Computex 2014. The ROG ARES III is simply an AMD Radeon R9 295X2 in a new form. AMD is not allowing AiB partners to use the R9 295X2 naming unless they use the reference design of the card.
Up until now there were no FM2+ motherboards in ASUS’s Republic of Gamers motherboard portfolio. FM2+ of course replaced AMD’s FM2 socket to support Steamroller and Kaveri APUs. So if you do prefer AMD’s APUs you now have a ROG Gaming board to choose from, the ROG Crossblade Ranger.
PowerColor is showing off their recently announced Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 at Computex 2014 this week. While most R9 295X2′s are liquid cooled with AMD’s reference cooler Power Color has gone with their own massive triple-slot air cooler.
It looks like Corsair has noticed the popularity of NZXT’s Kraken G10 cooling bracket that they have developed their own. The Hydro Series HG10 cooling bracket is a powerful accessory that allows users to replace a stock graphics card cooler with any of Corsair’s Hydro Series liquid CPU coolers.

The game will be made available free under EA’s “On the House” program where they give away titles for free for a short period of time.
NVIDIA has just announced its entry-level or cheapest card offering in the 700 series, the GeForce GT 740. This card is a simple rebrand of the GT 640 so that means it is not based on the Maxwell micro-architecture, but rather uses the Kepler-based GK107 chip.
