Titan Launches Elena TEC VGA Cooler


Titan introduced today new Elena TEC VGA cooler, which combines the latest TEC and Heatpipe technology to provide powerful cooling performance especially for high-end GPUs and overcloking. By monitoring the VGA temperature, Elena's TEC control system is able to automatically switch ON/OFF power to maintain the temperature in a certain range that is, if the GPU is too hot, the TEC will start cooling; on the other hand, if the GPU is cool enough, the TEC will stop cooling. Thus, there is no condensation problem like old TEC solutions. In addition to the TEC cooling, the Elena TEC VGA Cooler is equipped with two silent 80x80x10mm fans(1800RPM-2500RPM/21dB-25dB) and four copper heatpipes that help speed up heat dissipation. The Elena TEC VGA Cooler has a universal mounting mechanism that supports all ATI video cards from X1300 to X1950 series, and all NVIDIA cards from GeForce 6800 to GeForce 7950GT except the 7800GS model.

Intel plans to enter graphics field with multi-core 32nm GPU

As you probably know, Intel is working on their own graphics card. Most people scoff at this idea, considering that Intel was rumored to buy NVIDIA so that they could have graphics cards. However, in a few years (late 2008/2009), Intel is planning on becoming a serious threat to the market dominance owned by NVIDIA and ATI. Intel is claiming that by late 2008 they will have at least sampled a card with multiple cores (up to sixteen) on one die. They also claim they will be able to do this on a 32nm architecture. This 16 core, 32nm GPU is estimated to run sixteen times faster than the 8800GTX.

DNA-Drivers Returns

I can gladly say DNA-Drivers is back alive. This is supported by the release of DNA's ATi 5.0.7.1 Driver. This can be found here. I have information directly from the creator (KillerSneak) that NVIDIA drivers will be released in a matter of a few weeks. He also stated Vista drivers may take a bit longer due to the fact of Microsofts new "security" measures that requires all drivers to be signed. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out for Vista and modded drivers.

Intel joining the high end videochip market?

Intel has confirmed that they formed the "Visual computing group" which shall be the future of computing for "high-throughput workloads". Intel is already looking to hire graphic engineers for this purpose. Together this might suggest Intel is indeed going to create chips for add on cards once again.
Even though the high end market is quite small compared to on board graphic processors it still has a value of $5 billion a quarter, which is a lot, even for a giant like Intel. Having their own high end GPU would also give them a chance to strengthen their grip on the console market.
Intel did not comment on these speculations.
