EVGA's GeForce GTX 760 Lineup Detailed

EVGA's GeForce GTX 760 graphics card lineup will have no less than six models, based on three of its own cooler designs. The company even plans to take advantage of the leeway NVIDIA appears to have given its partners, to come up with custom-design GTX 760 graphics cards, in a bid to close the performance gap between the $249-$299 GTX 760, and the $399 GTX 770. EVGA's GTX 760 lineup starts off with a base-model, which uses its new ACX cooling solution that made its debut with this generation. This card will stick to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory, and feature 2 GB of memory. EVGA is working on a 4 GB GTX 760, which sticks to reference clock speeds, but features the company's blower-type Signature cooler from previous generation.

Moving on, EVGA will deploy its latest ACX cooling solution on the GTX 760 SuperClocked. Armed with 2 GB of memory, this card gives you factory-overclocked speeds of 1072 MHz core, 1137 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 6.00 GHz memory. A few steps up the ladder, you'll find the GTX 760 FTW 2 GB, which uses the same blower-type previous-generation Signature cooler as the GTX 760 4 GB, but with 1085 MHz core, 1150 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory. Another card with the same clock speeds is the GTX 760 FTW SuperClocked. This strangelet uses a different high-performance blower-type cooler, which made its debut with EVGA's custom-design GTX 780 graphics cards. At the top of the pile is the GTX 760 4 GB FTW, armed with double the memory amount, ACX cooling, and the same clock speeds as the other FTW cards. Given the $249-$299 positioning of the GTX 760, we're skeptical about EVGA launching water-cooling ready HydroCopper cards based on the chip. The cards are pictured below in the order of their mention, in the article.

All EVGA Power Supplies Support Core "Haswell" New C-States

Intel recently launched the 4th Generation Intel Core "Haswell" processors that support new power saving modes: C6 and C7 idle states. These states are able to reduce the CPU power consumption to 0.05A, lowering overall system power consumption. In order to use this new feature, the requirements are to have the 4th Generation Intel Core processor, a compatible motherboard, and a compatible power supply.

Designed with enthusiast needs in mind, the EVGA SuperNOVA power supplies are the best choice to power the next generation enthusiast computers. Available in continuous power with exceptional performance, stunning efficiency, cutting-edge design, and many unique features, the EVGA SuperNOVA power supply line is what you need to take your system to the next level.

EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 Power Supply Announced

The EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 power supply is here. This power supply raises the bar with an 80 Plus Gold rating, with 1300W of continuous power, exceptional efficiency and a fully modular design. Not to mention, a first class 10 Year EVGA Warranty. The entire electrical design was engineered to be efficient, silent and optimized for the enthusiast. Take your system to the max with the EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2.

EVGA SuperNova 1000 G2 Hits Retail

Announced a little over a month ago, the SuperNova 1000 G2 is the latest addition to EVGA's SuperNova power supply series and is now available for purchase. Major European and North American retailers have listed the unit during the last few days, with prices falling inline with segment norm, around €/$ 180. The SuperNova 1000 G2 is the second high output unit of the series, after the SuperNova NEX1500 Classified, which received mixed reviews and failed to generate the desired traction for EVGA's recent PSU venture, partially because of its price (being the most expensive consumer PSU on the market at launch) and partially because of its lackluster performance for a halo product.

The SuperNova 1000 G2 is based on a leading platform from renowned OEM/ODM, Super Flower, a first for EVGA which previously collaborated with Etasis Electronics (for the SuperNova NEX 1500 Classified) and FSP (for the rest of its SuperNova lineup). While Super Flower's aformentioned platform, dubbed Leadex, is itself new, we did get to see it put through its paces by OklahomaWolf at jonnyGURU.com, where it performed exceptionally well, legitimizing expectations of similar feats from EVGA's own version of it. The SuperNova 1000 G2 also boasts superb connectivity, offering functionality superior to most competing products, and not least, a 10 year warranty period, something no other power supply offers, except for EVGA's own SuperNova NEX1500 Classified.

EVGA Works On Z87 Stinger-based Pre-Built Gaming Desktops

EVGA is planning a lineup of pre-built mini-ITX gaming desktops, which take advantage of its Z87 Stinger socket LGA1150 motherboard, various choices of 4th generation Core "Haswell" processors, and of course, EVGA-branded graphics cards. These desktops are built into a case custom designed by EVGA called miniBOX, featuring a windowed side-panel, a glossy black front, and a 1U SFF power-supply bearing FSP-Fortron markings. One of the two desktops was fully assembled, running a Z87 Stinger motherboard with Core i7-4770K CPU, a GeForce GTX TITAN, and an SSD. Interestingly, these systems completely lack optical drives, so EVGA will target only those markets in which digital downloads of games (over Steam, Origin, UPlay, etc.,) are prevalent. UPDATE: Actually this units bundle with an 550W FSP PSU and a slimline optical drive which ejects to the side of the case. Currently a DVD-RW is planned, but EVGA is looking to do a BluRay version as well.

EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Classified and GTX 770 Classified Pictured

The Classified brand extension marks the very best from EVGA's stable. The company showed off its GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 Classified cards, which combine a meaty new variant of its ACX cooling solution, with custom-design PCBs. The GTX 780 Classified should make EVGA ready for when NVIDIA allows custom-design GTX TITAN. Drawing power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, the GTX 780 Classified appears to feature a 14-phase VRM, which makes the PCB a good inch or two taller than most full-height cards. That's also a reasonable trade-off to keep the cooler dual-slot, which would greatly help with SLI builds using the card. Moving on to the GTX 770 Classified, the card offers a similar 14-phase VRM, draws power from a pair of 8-pin connectors, features 4 GB of memory, and features an ACX identical cooling solution to the GTX 780 Classified. EVGA didn't disclose clock speeds, both cards appear to feature redundant BIOS, the GTX 780 Classified features header for an EVBot-like device.

GeForce GTX 780 Pricing Revealed

Ahead of its launch just a little later this week, online retailers appear to be stocking up on NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. An EVGA-branded card is being offered by distributor SYNNEX to retailers at US $644.44. This is the price that retailers (eg: Newegg, TigerDirect, NCIX, etc.) have to pay distributors per unit. We estimate that after retailers add their margins, the card could be priced anywhere between $650-700. Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long to find out.

The screenshot of the SKU page below also confirms key specifications, such as CUDA core count of 2,304, 3 GB of memory, GPU Boost 2.0 technology, and a design that's nearly identical to the GTX TITAN. The SKU page can't be linked to, since it's non-public, and is visible only on retailers' authentication.

EVGA Unveils ACX Graphics Card Cooler, Possible GTX 700 Launch Date?

NVIDIA's reference-design cooling solutions for its GeForce GTX 690 and GTX TITAN raised the bar with graphics card product-design, especially with the exotic materials, such as magnesium alloys, and vapor-chamber plates used in them, which keep production costs up. With reports of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 featuring similar reference-design coolers, graphics card manufacturers wanting to try out lower-cost yet higher-performing custom-design cooling solutions, have their tasks cut out: to design coolers that also look good, and make buyers want to pick them over NVIDIA's reference cooler.

EVGA unveiled a CGI teaser of its upcoming high-end graphics card cooling solution, called ACX, which abbreviates Active Cooling Xtreme. From what little the teaser video reveals, the cooler appears to be a sleek, dual-fan, and air-based. Its shroud features a sporty design with pale-gold highlights, and matte black accenting piano black. The cooler uses a pair of fans to ventilate an aluminum fin-stack, but no other physical features were revealed. The name might indicate some kinds of "smart" features that let users monitor, and tinker with the card's cooling better, perhaps even over proprietary software. Interestingly, it won't be long before we find out more. The cooler is said to be unveiled on the 23rd of this month, and unless EVGA plans to launch it with older GTX 600 series GPUs, 23rd could very well be the day the first GTX 700 series product could be unveiled. Find the video after the break.
