PowerColor Announces PowerJack Graphics Card Support Accessory

TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphics cards, today announced a professional graphics interface card supporter: the PowerColor PowerJack. As high-end graphics are becoming more powerful, the sizes are increasing as well as their weight. This poses a problem that gamers may not know they had. Owners of high-end graphics may be able to attest to the problem of the weight of the card bending in the case. A couple screws and the motherboard may not be enough to hold the heavier cards in place anymore.

This is where the PowerColor PowerJack comes in. The PowerJack supports the weight of the card from the back where it’s most needed. With its multistage extension function, it can extend its height from 61.25 mm up to 150 mm and it’s applicable to E-ATX / ATX / M-ATX motherboards and can be used in full tower, mid tower & mini tower chassis.

“The company is full of gamers and modders, so it’s no surprise that we discovered a need for a product like the PowerJack,” says Ted Chen, CEO of TUL Corporation. “High performance cards are not going to get any smaller, so we saw a need to bring this to market, where we know it will be fully utilized.”



The PowerJack will be available on July 15.

All you people that say this is a good idea should really know better - of course its a good idea to the average joe but most of us have a lotta household items that can prop a graphics card up with a few minor modifications - obviously the designs n such wont be as refined or look as good as this product - but anyone with a hint of commonsense & some tools can fabricate something that does the same job out of wood, card or possibly plastics (but you may need a mold of some sort for that depending how you go about it) it shouldnt even take 30mins to carve up a small block of wood and use some double sided tape to prop up the graphics card.

For example, even my asus HD4850 is really bent on the other end. I can just imagine how other non reference models with heavy heatsinks will bend over time. Therefore this is quite nice idea, but I would apply some double sided tape or other stuff that will keep it at its place. And they should have a crossfire version that clips on the edge of pcb or something like that and is fully adjustable.
