Avexir Debuts the Blitz 1.1 Series Memory

The Avexir brand is an established manufacturer associated with producing top quality, high-end RAM memory. Avexir is one of the only manufactures in which the factories hand check each module when it comes to overclocking and working in dual and quad channel modes. The modules are packed into elegant boxes only when they pass thorough quality control tests on different systems including AMD and Intel processors. Other manufacturers unfortunately don't do such controlled hand quality checks, which means users are more likely to encounter a faulty DDR module, which can cause incompatibilities and headache for the user.

Avexir presents today on European market five new series of quality checked memories:
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 Original White LED
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 OCF Yellow LED
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 ELG Yellow LED
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 ELR Red LED
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 GBOC Orange LED

EVGA Officially Announces GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition

EVGA has today ended its teasing campaign and finally introduced what it calls 'greatest overclocking graphics card on the planet', the GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition. Designed in collaboration with overclocking gurus Vince "K|NGP|N" Lucido and Tsemenko "TiN" Illya, this card features a 14+3 phase power design, dual 8-pin and 6-pin power connectors (to deliver up to 450 W to the GPU), enhanced PLL circuitry, a preinstalled dedicated PWM baseplate, and an ACX cooling solution packing two 10 cm fans.

"In order to break world records these days you need some serious hardware," said Vince "K|NGP|N" Lucido. "This card was engineered to serve one purpose… be the world's best overclocking graphics card. Expect GPU clockspeeds at over 1.85 GHz with extreme cooling."

EVGA Reportedly Prepping GeForce GTX 780 Ti Kingpin Edition Graphics Card

Remember the little teaser image EVGA posted, of a new graphics card. Well, according to VideoCardz.com, the picture if of the GeForce GTX 780 Ti Kingpin Edition, an uber-end card developed by EVGA with the help of well-known overclocker Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido. The card is supposed to pack 6 GB of RAM (the stock GTX 780 Ti has 3 GB) and feature 'no TDP limit and unlocked voltage' so as to allow for some of the highest clocks possible.

No word on frequencies but it's likely the card will be factory-overclocked with some headroom available for people who want to push it even further. The EVGA GTX 780 Ti Kingpin Edition is said to be launched in December and will surely have a hefty price tag ($999 maybe?).

NVIDIA Sets Up Price Cuts in Response to Radeon R9 Series

In the wake of AMD rolling out the $299 Radeon R9 280X, $199 Radeon R9 270X, and $139 Radeon R7 260X; NVIDIA is giving final touches to price cuts to several of its SKUs, beginning with the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost. Originally priced at $149, pricing of the card could be adjusted closer to that of the R7 260X. Our review of the card revealed NVIDIA's offering to be a staggering 24 percent faster overall. NVIDIA could also lower the price of the now $180 GeForce GTX 660. All eyes, however, are on the $249 GeForce GTX 760, which is sandwiched by AMD's offerings.

There's also talk of NVIDIA developing a new SKU, possibly the "GeForce GTX 760 Ti" or "GeForce GTX 765" (likely names), to occupy the $240~260 price range. We expect this chip to be essentially an overclocked GeForce GTX 670 with GPU Boost 2.0; which may not quite go after the R9 280X, since it's already performing on par with the GeForce GTX 770. The new price cuts could take effect very soon; although DigiTimes isn't ruling out a second round of price-cuts in November, either.

Custom NVIDIA GTX 760 Card Pictured And Tested

With the official GeForce GTX 760 launch imminent, leaked specs, benchmark scores and pics are to be expected. That is precisely what we are looking at today, a card branded Xenon JetStream, sporting the familiar Palit aesthetics, apparently Xenon being a Palit sub-brand for the South Korean market. The images, specs and scores come from the ChipHell boards, where they were posted by forum member Charlie.

The card itself is very small, apparently a non-reference design, making use of an over-sized dual fan cooler, known to us from various GTX 600 generation cards, sold by Palit under the JetStream moniker. The GPU specs confirm the previous leaks, boasting 1152 CUDA cores, 96 TMUs and 32 ROPs. This particular card comes factory overclocked, with the base clock set at 1072 MHz and the boost clock 65 Mhz higher, at 1137 MHz. The GDDR5 memory, 2 GB on this model, comes with a slight overclock as well, 1550 Mhz precisely (6200 Mhz effective speed). Performance wise, the card did slightly better than a stock GTX 670, so keeping in mind the lower stock clocks of the reference GTX 760 card, we can expect it to perform slightly worse than a stock GTX 670.
