EVGA Allegedly Cuts Out Original Developer of Precision Overclocking App

EVGA allegedly violated the license agreement it held with the original developer of its Precision overclocking and monitoring app, when it developed the latest version of its Precision X 15 app, featuring what it claimed to be a "100 percent in-house" back-end code. EVGA Precision was originally based on RivaTuner codebase, which developer Alex "Unwinder" Nicolaychuk licences out to several major VGA add-in board manufacturers; the more popular being MSI Afterburner. The RivaTuner base, derived from Unwinder's pioneering VGA tweaking app, forms a vast majority of the code of the likes of Precision and Afterburner, with clients going only as far as to innovate shiny skins and UI ideas, or add-on features (ideas), which are then put into code by Unwinder.

Unwinder alleges that the latest version of Precision X, the one EVGA claims to be an in-house development, continues to be largely based on RivaTuner, including the more superficial bits of it, such as user interface dialog control IDs (the way the app takes inputs from the user), and text from the multilingual help system. The installer in which Precision X is packaged, ironically, continues to feature the licence agreement copied over from the older version.

EVGA and K|NGP|N Break New World Record with First True 2GHz on GTX 780 Ti

Extreme overclockers, Vince "K|NGP|N" Lucido and Illya "Tin" Tsemenko have once again teamed up with the latest EVGA hardware to set new benchmark and frequency world records. Armed with an EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition graphics card, an EVGA X79 Dark motherboard, and the latest and greatest EVGA Power Supplies, Vince was able to push the GPU clockspeed up to a staggering 2025MHz, a new world record.

This frequency also allowed for a new 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme World Record, 8793 points. These accomplishments once again prove EVGA's dedication to the enthusiast community, and why EVGA hardware is the #1 choice for gamers and extreme overclockers. See the 3DMark World Record here.

EVGA Releases the SuperNOVA 1200 P2 Power Supply

EVGA has now made available a new SuperNOVA Series power supply, the 80 PLUS Platinum-rated SuperNOVA 1200 P2. This high-efficiency unit features a fully modular design, a high amperage single 12V rail, Japanese Nippon Chemi-Con solid state capacitors, a 140 mm Double Ball Bearing fan, and built-in Over Power/Under Power/Over Voltage/Short Circuit/Over Current protection.

EVGA Unveils a Trio of 1600W PSUs

EVGA unveiled no less than three new 1600W power supplies at Computex, including the Supernova 1600 G2 (recently announced), the Supernova 1600 T2, and the Supernova 1600 P2. Their model names should be a dead giveaway on how the three differ from each other. While the 1600 G2 lives up to 80 Plus Gold efficiency standards, the 1600 P2 scores 80 Plus Platinum, and the 1600 T2 80 Plus Titanium. The three feature nearly identical power-distribution diagrams, feature-sets; although we're not sure if the P2 and T2 translate their higher efficiency into more output connectors. Either of the three should be good enough for systems with four R9 290X, or two R9 295X2 graphics cards; but we guess the 1600 P2 and 1600 T2 should appeal to professional overclockers who also plan to throw 150W TDP Core i7-5960X "Haswell-E" into the mix.

EVGA Shows off 2-slot Air Cooled GeForce GTX TITAN-Z and HydroCopper

EVGA showed off its liquid-cooling ready GeForce GTX TITAN-Z dual-GPU graphics card, ahead of its market availability. The card combines an NVIDIA reference PCB with a full-coverage water-block designed for EVGA, by EK Water Blocks. The block is custom in that it features a custom cooler shroud over the EK-FC Titan Z "clear" acrylic variant. It also comes with a 2-slot rear I/O bracket. The card comes with a lofty factory-overclock, of 758 MHz core (compared to 705 MHz reference), 941 MHz GPU Boost (876 MHz reference), and an untouched 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory.

In addition, EVGA showed off the industry's first custom-design, air-cooled GeForce GTX TITAN-Z graphics card. The unnamed card features the company's next-generation ACX TITAN-Z 2-slot air-cooler, which features two aluminium fin stacks cooling each of the two GPUs, ventilated by 100 mm fans. EVGA didn't finalize the card's clock speeds, or even the product, for that matter. It depends on if NVIDIA allows it to launch custom-design, air-cooled GTX TITAN-Z.

EVGA X99 FTW Pictured Up Close

EVGA showed us one of the more 'complete' socket LGA2011-2 motherboards, decked up with its heatsinks. The company will likely name it X99 FTW. Designed for enthusiast PCs with three or more graphics cards, and high-bandwidth PCIe SSDs, and built in the ATX form-factor, the X99 FTW draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, with optional stabilizing inputs from a 6-pin PCIe and a 4-pin Molex. Barring the EPS, all other connectors are angled away, to help reduce cable clutter. The CPU socket is powered by an 8-phase VRM, with 4-phase memory VRM. It's flanked by four DDR4 DIMM slots on either side, supporting up to 64 GB of quad-channel memory.

Expansion slots include five PCI-Express 3.0 x16 wired to the CPU (x16, x8, x8, x16, x8); and one PCI-Express 2.0 x4, wired to the X99 PCH. Storage connectivity includes six SATA 6 Gb/s ports from the PCH, and four SATA 6 Gb/s from a third-party controller. 8-channel HD audio, and two gigabit Ethernet interfaces complete the connectivity. The board's real goods are its overclocker-friendly features, including PCIe slot disabling DIP switches, POST sequence LEDs and error code readouts, two clear CMOS buttons, and EVGA EVBot support. EVGA is expected to launch this board, alongside Intel's Core i7 "Haswell-E" HEDT processors, later this year.

EVGA Launches the SuperNOVA 1600 G2 Power Supply

EVGA has now officially introduced its newest SuperNOVA Series power supply, a model codenamed 120-G2-1600-X1 that has 80 PLUS Gold certification and a total output of 1600 W. EVGA's PSU features a fully modular design, an efficiency of up to 90% at typical loads, a single, high-amperage 12 V rail, a 140 mm Double Ball Bearing fan, and Over Power/Under Power/Over Voltage/Short Circuit protection.

The SuperNOVA 1600 G2 has a 10-year warranty and a price tag of $349.99. It's not available for purchase yet but should be later this month.

Gigabyte Unveils SuperOverclock VRM Boards for Graphics Cards

Gigabyte showed us its new range of auxiliary VRM boards for graphics cards, designed for professional overclockers. The board has to be manually soldered onto your graphics card, it supplements your card's GPU power domains. The card features a high-current power stage, which draws power from five 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The power stage is actively cooled by a fan-heatsink. While your GPU may never need that much power, it makes near darn sure that it doesn't suffer from voltage droop, which destabilizes your record-seeking OC. Such devices have been attempted by other VGA makers in the past, famously, the EPower Board by EVGA. The company also showed off its first liquid-nitrogen evaporators for GPUs.

EVGA Offers ACX Cooling Solution for GeForce TITAN Black

With NVIDIA's restrictions that prevent AIC partners from coming up with custom-design GeForce GTX TITAN Black graphics cards (with the exception of those with factory-fitted full-coverage water-blocks) in place, EVGA is taking a route explored by GIGABYTE last year, when it bundled NVIDIA-kosher (reference design) GTX TITAN cards with its WindForce 450 cooling solution detached, that the users can install by themselves. EVGA's approach is a tiny bit different. Its GTX TITAN Black-branded ACX cooler is sold separately, as an accessory for the company's reference-design cards; at a rather affordable price of US $39.99. The package includes the dual-fan aluminium fin heatsink, and a heatspreader to cool the memory and VRM.

EVGA didn't finalize pricing on the HydroCopper duo, yet.

EVGA Announces its GeForce GTX 750 Series Graphics Cards

EVGA launched its GeForce GTX 750 series with a pair of custom-design graphics card lines. The company launched four models each, based on the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, and the GTX 750. The eight are based on one of two custom board designs pictured below, one with a simple fan-heatsink, and one with a more complex dual-fan ACX cooling solution. The four models include one based on NVIDIA reference clock speeds, a SuperClocked model with fan-heatsink, another SuperClocked model with ACX cooler, and a higher overclocked FTW model with ACX cooler.

The GTX 750 base model runs NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1020/1085/5012 MHz (core/Boost/memory); the GTX 750 SC tops that with 1215/1294/5012 MHz.
