     A Gigabyte 890FXA-UD7

    After announcing its P55A-UD7 in January, Gigabyte is set to bring out another high end motherboard with the GA-890FXA-UD7. As its name indicates, it’s based on the recent AMD 890FX, designed for AMD processors.

    This card will have 6 PCI-Express ports and therefore support CrossFire-X. The power phase race seems to be stalling, with Gigabyte “only” giving its latest motherboard 10 phases, two of which are reserved for memory. This is nevertheless an enormous number of power phases and overclocking shouldn’t be limited at this level. SATA 6 Gbps and USB 3.0 are of course included.

    On top of the chipset, which is set up for watercooling (questionable system unless you want to massively overclock the built-in IGP), Gigabyte is likely to equip the card with its Hybrid Silent-Pipe system. In place of the waterblock, it will be possible to use a second cooler, which will extend outside the casing to better dissipate the heat.

    No price yet for this resolutely high-end card but availability is planned for the beginning of next month, at the same time as the Phenom II X6s.

     Thermalright ready for the GF100!

    While the GF100’s architecture seems promising on a good few points, the GTX 480 and 470 are nevertheless cards that heat up enormously and the stock cooler struggles to maintain them at a reasonable temperature level.

    For those who want to change this system, Thermalright has announced that it will be marketing a special GF100 fixture for some of its products. These are the Spitfire, HR-03 GTX and HR-03 GT. Thermalright hasn’t given the availability date or pricing on this yet and in any case it won’t be of any use until the GTX480 and 470 are available.

    It’s difficult to say if these alternative solutions will be more efficient and/or noisy than the stock NVIDIA cooler.

    Is this a response to the Radeon Mobility support in the last Catalyst 10.3s? NVIDIA has just announced its 197.16 WHQLs for Geforce mobiles. This is a welcome update as mobile driver updates are rarer than those for desktop chips.

    Among other improvements, note support for "new" GPUs (especially the 3xx series), an overall performance improvement, a PhysX update and Flash 10.1 Beta hardware support. The 197.16 WHQLs for mobile chips can be downloaded here.
