GIGABYTE readying up GTX 470 SuperOverclock

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Jun 7, 2010 9:41 am

GIGABYTE had a large VGA display at Computex this year, the majority of which are made to stand out in the market using non-reference cooling solutions, factory overclocks and more attractive bundles.


One of the real standouts on display, though, would have been a new member of its highly impressive SuperOverclock series video cards that's based on the GTX 470. This is one GTX 470 well worth having and leaves the reference design for dead.




The GTX 470 SuperOverclock (GV-N470SO-13I) has been built using GIGABYTE's proprietory Ultra Durable VGA Plus (UDV+) technology on a modified (longer) PCB with superior VRM (12+2 phase). Further to this, GIGABYTE says it has hand-picked the GPU and memory chips for these particular cards to ensure optimum stability and the highest overclocking potential.

Intel AppUp Center running on a MeeGo tablet - see how it works

By: Cameron Wilmot | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Jun 5, 2010 7:05 pm

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - During our visit to the Intel booth during the show, we not only saw MeeGo running on a new Sony netbook, but we also got a chance to have a play around with MeeGo running on a new and unreleased Atom tablet.



Jim Huang, a Senior Technical Marketing Engineer chap at Intel, was on hand to give us a quick run-down on the Intel AppUp Center. What was cool is that we saw it running an app or two on an unreleased Atom-based tablet running the MeeGo Linux operating system. The particular tablet we saw is capable o five point multi-touch and as demonstrated in the hand painting app, it works rather well indeed.


If the big mighty Intel has its way and as we are led to believe by all the advertising around the Computex area in Taipei, Atom is everywhere and is changing everything, the AppUp Center could end up being a good win for the folks at Intel and disrupt things a little for Apple with its own app store on its mega popular i-whatever devices.

A-DATA XPG Memory adds in new features such as active fan cooling

By: Cameron Wilmot | More News: RAM | Posted: Jun 5, 2010 6:35 pm

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - We found ourselves back at the A-DATA booth where we got an introduction into its line-up of XPG memory that is designed for overclockers, enthusiasts and gamers.



The Xtreme Series now includes an active fan cooling unit that is like others on market. It is installed over the top of the RAM and the two fans push air down over heatsink to aid in stability and performance when pushing the memory as fast as you can go.


The Plus Series includes cooling as well, but in the form of a heatpipe design. The Gaming Series doesn't come with any external cooling besides of course the standard heat spreader on the RAM. All these modules are now made using a 2oz copper PCB design which is designed to improve overclockability.
