Thermaltake announced new versions of TR2 RX low-noise power supplies. The new TR2 RX 450W/550W series features silent 140mm fans and offers overcurrent, overvoltage, overpower and short-circuit protection.
The TR2 RX 450W/550W series comply with the latest ATX 12V V2.3 standard for utmost reliability and compatibility supporting state-of-the-art technologies. Energy efficiency is improved by double forward switching circuit, and power current load on the AC delivery systems is reduced through the implementation of Active PFC. The TR2 RX Series power supply comes standard with one PCI-E 6-pin and one PCI-E 6+2-pin connectors as well as one EPS/ATX 12V 4+4pin connector to power the latest NVIDIA/AMD graphics cards and Intel/AMD processors, and a maximum of 6 SATA connectors for optical/hard drives.
Also, the new TR2 RX 450W/550W utilize Japanese main capacitor to ensure long-term reliability.
The TR2 RX 450W (W0146) and the 550W (W0134) will be available at the MSRP of $59.99 and $69.99, respectively.
Corsair announced the launch of its new Dominator GTX ultra-high performance DDR3 memory modules for Intel and AMD platforms, designed specifically for performance enthusiasts, gamers and extreme overclockers.
Corsair Dominator GTX modules are individually screened and tested on multiple high-performance Intel X58 and P55 chipset platforms to ensure that they operate at the frequency of 2250MHz at low-latency timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.65V.
In addition to high frequencies possible on Intel platforms, Dominator GTX modules have also been tested and verified to operate at up to 1800MHz CL6 in Socket AM3 motherboards for AMD Phenom II processors. The following table shows baseline performance in a number of popular DDR3 platforms.
Dominator GTX modules use Corsair's DHX+ heatsink and are supplied with extra-tall cooling fins to maximize heat dissipation. The part number for this module is CMGTX2, and it is sold as a single module, allowing enthusiasts to purchase two modules for dual-channel configurations or three modules for triple-channel configurations. For the highest performance and frequency scaling, Corsair recommends using the GT Airflow fan with tall mounting brackets (CMXAF2 GTL).
The CMGTX2 is screened by hand, in multiple passes, by Corsair's lab in Fremont, California, and availability will be limited. It will be launched on the Corsair Online Store on December 8, 2009, at 9AM Pacific Time, and will be sold on a first come first served basis.
Corsair's DHX+ technology uses specially designed, high-quality heatsinks and a custom-designed PCB that allows both the front and rear of the memory ICs and the printed circuit board itself to be cooled. DHX+ technology also allows removing the cooling fins to install a range of modular cooling accessories, including extended heatsink fins, the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H30 water cooling block and Corsair Cooling Ice Series T30 subambient cooling system.
Futuremark Games Studio released the dedicated server for Shattered Horizon, their multiplayer first-person shooter played in zero gravity.
The release of the dedicated server was accompanied by a minor game update and a new $29.95 bundle offer from the Futuremark Store that includes Shattered Horizon and 3DMark Vantage Advanced Edition.
Dedicated server features:
Players and server hosting companies can download the Shattered Horizon server files now from the "Tools" tab within Steam.
As mentioned above, the release of the server is accompanied by a minor game update 188.8.131.52. Changelog:
Shattered Horizon requires DirectX 10, a DirectX 10 compatible video card, and Windows Vista or Windows 7. There is no support for Windows XP or DirectX 9. The suggested retail price is $19.95.
TUL Corporation, a manufacturer of AMD graphics cards, added the HD5750 solution to its Go! Green lineup. These products consume less power at the same performance.
Essentially, the novelty doesn't require external power supply. And it is also noiseless.
