Asetek has announced their largest ever design win today in a press release. The deal is with an undisclosed OEM customer (which will be secret for a while) and for an unnamed graphics liquid cooling solution all their own. This ambitious project is forecasting a prime cash flow to the company in the 2 to 4 million dollars range for revenue and shipping and it is scheduled to begin by the first half of 2015.
The guys over at Coolaler have allegedly been able to get their hands on an upcoming Maxwell GM204 graphics card, from what they are saying it is the GeForce GTX 870. The GPU-Z screenshot that they provide cannot property identify the GPU, but it does read the cards name as “D17U-20″ featuring a GPU name “13C2″. The Device ID and BIOS fields are redacted so we cannot say for sure if this is genuine or not.
If you didn’t know the GeForce GTX 750 Ti is one of the first mid-range GPUs in recent memory that can be passively cooled. While we have seen passive solutions there are also AIB partners that are taking advantage of the low TDP of the card to overclock it. There is where the Galaxy GeForce GTX 750 Ti Hall of Fame (HOF) grahpics card comes in.
We have been hearing about the Tonga GPU for a little while now and it has just recently been revealed that the graphics card based on the new GPU will be called the Radeon R9 285. The Tonga GPU will replace the Tahiti core which has had a lifespan of almost three years now.
Given that this chip will be based on the existing 28 nm process this is going to be a big GPU, over 600 mm²! Since this GPU will be based on the Maxwell architecture thermal loads should not be that bad, but given its going to be a big chip we will just have to see. We could see the GM200-based GeForce GTX Titan II launch is the first half of 2015.
AMD’s upcoming Tonga GPU is a name that you should have heard of by now. New details about the GPU have been revealed. The first and most important news is that the GPU is slated to be released sometime in August. The GPU will replace the Tahiti PRO GPU (R9 280) for the mid-range spectrum. The performance of the chip is supposed to be between the Tahiti PRO and Tahiti XT GPUs.
KFA2 has just launched an updated version of their factory overclocked GeForce GTX 780 HOF (hall of fame) graphics card. This new card is the GeForce GTX 780 HOF OC+ and is based on the same board design as the original.
At Computex 2014 Galaxy is showing off many different graphics cards and one of the most impressive is their GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF V20. If you remember this card was revealed back in March, but we were unsure of what type of cooling solution Galaxy was going to use. Galaxy has gone with a custom designed water block from EK Water Blocks, which really allows Galaxy to show off that sexy white PCB!
Galaxy had a rather unique graphics card on display at their booth at Computex 2014. It is what they are calling their Fish GeForce GT 630 graphics card. The reason they are calling it the fish is that the heatsink is made to look like a fish.
