Nvidia is going to release the MCP82 XE chipset later this month where the official marketing name will be nForce 980a SLI. MCP82 XE is essentially the same as the MCP72 XE except that it is qualified to work with the latest AMD3 processors on both DDR2 and DDR3 boards. Read more…
ZOTAC today releases a new more power-efficient GeForce 9800GT Eco with 512MB GDDR3 memory onboard. It has 112 stream processors clocked at 1375MHz with core clock at 550MHz and memory clock at 1800MHz. Due to its lower clocks and voltages, it is 40% more power efficient than its precessor.
GALAXY has added a custom designed GeForce GTX260+ with 1792MB Memory to its -up today. The card uses Samsung K4J10324QD-HJ1A GDDR3 memory chip with a capacity of 128 MB each so 14 of such chips totaled up 1792MB on 448-bit memory interface. This card was based on a 55nm G200-103-B3 GPU with 216 shader processors cooled by GALAXY
Albatron has a neat little PCI Express x1 graphics card based on GeForce 9500 GT GPU clocked at 550MHz core, 1375MHz shader and 1400MHz memory. Previously, we saw several graphics card makers coming out with PCIe x1 solution and it proves pretty popular among some users who lack a x16 slot most often in a SFF or HTPC environment. So
The latest product of NVIDIA’s renaming spree is the GTS 250, previously known as the 9800GTX+. Is this just another ploy by NVIDIA to push old parts on unsuspecting consumers?
GALAXY is preparing its new custom design addition to the GTX285 series: GTX285 2GB. It features a core speed of 648MHz on its 0.8ns GDDR3 memory with a 512bit interface. The cooling system is equipped with Arctic Cooling with 5 heat pipes and 3 PWM fans at 2000 RPM. The card comes with a digital
Something interesting for HTPC enthusiasts that we missed out. Galaxy has a special 9600GT Low Profile Low Power 9600GT card that consumes less than 60W and doesn’t requires external 6-pin power connector. It is based on the 9600 GT Green Edition GPU where we have been talking about lately. This card has 8-layer PCB which is 203.2mm
Palit announces its new custom design addition to the GT200 series: GTS 250 2GB, 1GB and 512MB. The new cards feature a higher core speed of 745MHz on its 0.8ns GDDR3 memory with a 256bit interface. The cooling system comprises of two-ball bearing PWM fan, heat-pipes, and copper base plating. The card comes with 4-phase power supply too.
Nvidia allows AIC partners to design their own GTX285 cards and Galaxy now has came up with their own version of GTX285 card. Galaxy GTX285 comes with a digital PWM design with 4+2 phase power whereas the reference design comes with 6 phase analog power. Also, the card has dual BIOS on board. The card is cooled by Arctic
We had revealed about the GeForce 9800 GT Green Edition earlier and now we have gotten more information about this neat card from Nvidia. It seems that this card requires no external power unlike the current 9800 GT card which requires a 6-pin auxiliary power. This is due to the fact that this 9800 GT
We have already told you quite a bit of details about GeForce GTS 240 which is slated for April release. It is basically 55nm G92 based 9800 GT GPU on a new P361 PCB and internally Nvidia calls it D10P2. Now we will provide you a glimpse on the schematic diagram of the GTS 240 card. The differences are mainly on the
NVIDIA has responded to a court filing on Monday in which Intel alleged that the 4-year-old chipset license agreement between the two companies does not extend to Intel’s future generation CPU architectures with “integrated” memory controllers, such as Nehalem. Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang reiterated that they are confident that the license, as negotiated, applies and that this is
GALAXY today unveils the GeForce GTX260+ 216SP card with 896MB of Samsung GDDR3 memories. The card is clocked at 625MHz for the core, 2100MHz for the memories and 1350MHz for the shaders. The overclocked GALAXY GTX260+ performs 7% higher than the default GTX260. The card is cooled by Arctic Cooling Twin Turbo VGA cooler with dual fan and
Nvidia’s AIC partners plan to unveil several “new” cards during CeBIT; GeForce GTX 260 card based on the revised P897 PCB, GeForce GTS 250 with a revised PCB, 9600GT and GSO “Green Edition” and GeForce 9800 GT “Green” Edition. Note that Nvidia will not be marketing those cards as Green Editions but leave the naming as theyare know as now.
Galaxy releases a software that allows users to flash BIOS, change the fan speed as well as overclock the core, shader and memory clocks. It should work on the current Nvidia GeForce based cards except the flashing BIOS option as Galaxy card has dual BIOS. You may grab it over here.
Nvidia is slated to launch a “Green Edition” of the 9800 GT in mid-March with lower power consumption and lower clockspeeds. The plain old 9800GT will be rebranded as the GTS 240, and prices of the 9800GT/GTS 240 are also expected to go down.
From March 3rd onwards, GeForce 9800 GTX+ will officially be rebranded as GeForce GTS 250. The specs remains the same as the 9800GTX+ but some AIC makers are planning to market those cards as a whole new product with a new cooler. Click to read more.
Some things really puzzled us. VR-Zone got to learn that Nvidia is planning to rebrand nForce 780a SLI chipset to nForce 980a SLI and the specs remain unchanged. ASUS leaked some details regarding this nForce 980a SLI chipset when they announced their upcoming M4N82 Deluxe board. Availability of the chipsets to partners is slated for March. The markings on
Nvidia will be rebranding their 55nm G92 based GeForce 9800 GTX+ card to become GeForce GTS 250. Card makers are expected to receive a remarked G92 core from Nvidia to make their GTS 250 cards. The markings on the G92 core changes from G92-420-B1 to G92-421-B1 to differentiate between the two although they are essentially the same.
