ASUS at CeBIT 2009 show a new concept motherboard in style "military" - Marine Cool

The event CeBIT 2009 ASUS company will try to leave the competitors far behind, introducing the concept of ... system board. Series products Republic of Gamers (ROG) therefore represents the development of innovative solutions for the enthusiast, and a new board Marine Cool - another proof.


So, following pictures show that Marine Cool is the difference in design from that of conventional circuit boards, or other manufacturers - the elements of the cooling system styled by some military facilities and the very board has a distinctive color.


In addition to actually designing sophistication hallmark is the application fee in the technology micro-porous ceramic. On the board there is a large-size plate, whose role is to rapidly remove heat from the intensely hot parts.

Also in the Marine Cool ASUS engineers have used a new system of heat pipes, which would be better cooling for chipset, and PWM.


Instead of the usual connectors for memory DIMM, there is mounting on the board under the memory slot SO-DIMM, which saved quite a lot of space for the remaining items on the board.


Details about this concept of ASUS, we probably know already, on Tuesday, when the exhibition opens.

IO Data LCD-MF221XGBR - 21.5" for video, and more effective for the PC

The company IO Data has recently introduced a new monitor, which, according to the manufacturer, is highly effective in three areas: to display the image when viewing video, games, and when his computer.


The new model was designated LCD-MF221XGBR matrix and a diagonal 21.5". Screen meets the requirements of Full-HD video (1920h1080) that allows for viewing on-screen movies with the holders of Blu-ray. View the video on-screen LCD-MF221XGBR contributes ratio screen (16:9) and the connector HDMI, in addition to traditional D-Sub and DVI-D (support HDCP).

Matrix display capable of displaying an image with the parameters of brightness and contrast: 300 nits and 1000:1, respectively (10000:1 dynamic contrast).

Also, this monitor is possible to improve image quality by smoothing (I/P Conversion Circuit), derived from the receiver of terrestrial digital TV signal.

A large diagonal of the model can display on screen a lot of information that can enhance the effectiveness of the work for a desktop PC with the monitor.

The cost of the monitor IO Data LCD-MF221XGBR is $ 227.

Galaxy GeForce GTX 285 gets 3 fan cooler, and a number of changes to improve productivity

If NVIDIA is trying to reduce the price of some of its accelerators average price range, the companies that produce finished products based on the GPU NVIDIA, it seems, have decided to go another way and attract buyers for its non-standard versions of accelerators.


And while on the video card GeForce GTX 285 can not be attributed to the budget or the middle class, the Galaxy have decided to go on the road refinement with the aim of increasing productivity, rather than simplifying the design.


Option accelerator Galaxy GeForce GTX 285 has a power system scheme 4 +2, and digital control PWM, but not 6-phase reference design NVIDIA. VRM controller supports the necessary interface for managing with the help of software.


Card has two BIOS chips on-board EEPROM, which provides more reliable operation of the accelerator and allows you to switch between different profiles, set the speed.


The cooling system is also subjected to change - as an air cooler type selected productive Accelero XTREME GTX production of Arctic Cooling, used also for the adapters on the GPU AMD.
