Colorful GeForce GTX 670 Graphics Card Pictured

Here are the first pictures of Colorful GeForce GTX 670. The card, according to the source, sticks to NVIDIA reference design. It's not much different from the other GeForce GTX 670 cards pictured till date, but it's the card's rear view picture that caught our attention. We noticed from pictures of MSI's card, that the two 6-pin PCI-E power connectors are located more towards the central portion of the card, than towards the end, this led us to believe that the GTX 670 will have a shorter than usual PCB, which these latest pictures confirm.

The PCB (rear) picture reveals quite a few things. To begin with, the VRM area is moved to the front portion of the PCB, similar to AMD's HD 7800 series. A great deal of compacting has been done, the eight GDDR5 memory chips are spread across both sides of the PCB (four on each side), probably to manage heat and wiring better. The portion of the cooler that's sticking out of the card needn't pack metal parts (heatsinks), there's just a chamber for the fan. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 670 is expected to launch later this month.

Colorful Makes GeForce GTX 680 iGame Kudan Official

Colorful announced its most powerful GTX 680 named "iGame GTX680-2G Kudan". The first "iGame Kudan" graphics card was released last year, and it was a GTX560Ti. Now Colorful uses the design concept on the latest GK104 chip.

Like the first generation, iGame GTX680 Kudan equipped a huge cooler which requires three slots and assembles three fans, one is 90mm, and others are 80mm and with "Shark Bionic" design in order to reduce the noise. Below the triple fans, there are heat-sinks which are crossed by ten 6mm heat-pipes. A 3mm steel plate is covered on the back of the PCB in order to enhance the PCB and improve the heat radiation.

Colorful Giving GeForce GTX 680 iGame Kudan Treatment

Remember the Colorful GTX 560 Ti iGame Kudan and how it made our readers scream "overkill"? What happens when you combine an over-the-top design, the Colorful iGame Kudan, with an equally over-the-top GPU, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680? You get the Colorful GTX 680 iGame Kudan, the pinnacle of air-cooling for the GeForce GTX 680.

The iGame Kudan's design methodology revolves around giving users an extremely tweakable and modular cooling solution, which can not only be modified by playing with its heatsinks, but also be re-painted to suit your style. Colorful included a pastel-set the last time around. Under the hood, the card is packed by a modular VRM. The main PCB has an 8-phase digital VRM, which can be augmented by an additional 4-phase circuit on a daughterboard, which gets attached on a modified SO-DIMM slot, which goes parallel to the plane of the PCB, on its rear. The card is said to have high out of the box clock speeds, with an even higher overclocking headroom. Colorful sells in Asia and Europe.

Colorful Announces Cable-Routing King C2 RTX Chassis

Colorful announces their first RTX (Reversed Technology eXtended) chassis named Cable-Routing King C2. Unlike the ordinary chassis, the RTX likes a upside down structure of ATX. With the RTX structure, it fixes the problem that users usually need an external cable to connect the CPU power cable when they route and hide the cables in the back with a PSU downside chassis. Beside, this structure also guarantees the graphics card better heat radiation.

The dimensions of Cable-Routing King C2 are 468mm x 466mm x 190mm, though it is not as large as Mid-Tower chassis, it provides shorter distance for cable routing. The motherboard need to be reversed installation, so the graphics card will be installed in the upside. Due to the meshes on the top, the efficient transport of fresh air into of the chassis is guaranteed to keep the graphics card cool. The PSU bay has been placed on the bottom with anti-dust mesh, and the distance from PSU to CPU power connector is about 15-20CM, so users don't need to purchase any external cables for cable management and hiding.

Colorful Launches the Most Powerful and Feature-Rich GeForce GTX 560 Ti

After showing off the PCB of the new design GTX560Ti days before, Colorful today releases this new graphics card and named iGame GTX560Ti Kudan.

iGame GTX560Ti Kudan requires three slots and assembles three fans, one is 80mm, and the other two are 70mm which with "Shark Bionic" design in order to reduce the noise. Users need to remove the cooler to install the expansion card on the obverse side near the rear plate. Both WHDI card and Television Card are available to be installed independently to satisfy users' requirement.

Colorful Shows Off The Most Powerful GeForce GTX 560 Ti PCB Featured in iGame Card

Asian graphics card vendor Colorful is at it again with its innovative board designs. This time, the company is after a GeForce GTX 560 Ti (GF114-based) graphics card that boasts of very strong power delivery, and a few mysterious expansion options. Colorful's emphasis has always been on PCB design and choice of high-grade components. This particular card, most likely called the Colorful GTX 560 Ti iGame, is no exception to that. The PCB is particularly long (as much as a GF110-based board).

The additional length is put to use by an innovative arrangement of VRM phases in two rows of four phases. This card employs high-grade chokes with driver-MOSFETs (a component that integrates up/down MOSFETs and driver IC into a single compact package). This 8-phase VRM draws power from three 6-pin power connectors, and can deliver 300W of power to help with record-seeking overclocking feats. There are consolidated voltage measurement points to help manually measure voltages.

Colorful Intros iGame560 Ymir and Ymir-U Series Graphics Cards

Growing in popularity, Chinese graphics card designer Colorful is ready with yet another graphics card design, this time based on the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 GPU. Called the Coloful iGame560 Ymir, the card is based on a revision of the company's "shark-fin" cooler design, while retaining the GF114 PCB the company used on older GTX 560 Ti graphics cards. The iGame560 Ymir PCB uses high grade components, 6+1 phase VRM, and redundant BIOS switchable from the rear panel. The "normal mode" BIOS runs the card at NVIDIA reference speeds of 810/1002 MHz (core/memory actual), while the "turbo mode" BIOS runs the card at 850/1050 MHz.

The iGame560 Ymir comes with an optional accessory called "Air-kit", which is a detachable heat pipe that draws heat from the main heatsink out of the case through the rear panel, and on to a small heatsink that passively dissipates heat. The Ymir model uses a beefy fan-heatsink that uses a large and elaborate heatsink, which is ventilated by two fans. The card is available in both 1 GB and 2 GB variants. Apart from the Ymir, Colorful also released the iGame Ymir-U 1 GB and Ymir-U 2 GB, which use a slightly more compact cooler that uses a circular heatsink with radially-projecting aluminum fins and a copper base. The Ymir-U cooler makes do with a single fan. On the Ymir-U cards, turbo mode runs the card at 830/1050 MHz.

ColorFire Readies Radeon HD 6870 Graphics Card for Extreme Overclocking
