ASUS, today has revealed a new variant of a graphic card based on the AMD 6770 graphics chipset, which is a mid range graphics card.
What’s special about this card is the fanless design that allows literally a zer0 dB operation. The cooling method used here is a heatsink. Dubbed the directCU method of cooling, it features a massive heat sink, that is supposedly 95% larger and 16% cooler. This card will be an option for people, who hate the whiny fan sound that usually accompanies graphics-intensive games like GTA4 or Crysis.
Other miscellaneous advantages include slightly better performance thanks to the use of super alloys, increases the performance by 15% says ASUS. The GPU is DX11 compatible, has 800 stream processors ( please do not compare with Nvidia, the architectures are different ), and 40 texture units. All this, is supported by a 128-bit memory interface and a 850Mhz clocked engine. Only concern is what the heat levels will be like, considering there is no fan on the GPU.
Crysis 2 in DX11 awaits.
Price – Rs.9750/- excluding taxes, 3 years warranty.

Cool, right ?
Priced at 8.5 $ on the Android market, this app is quite an experiment for all DSLR lovers out there.
Nokia have started their new Symbian strategy with the launch of Nokia 500, a low-mid range Symbian Anna smartphone with a processor clocked at 1 GHz. Let’s not get carried away by that number, i will explain it’s existence after we see what this phone packs, other than the processor speed.
C5-03 successor ?
The specs you need to know are :
- 3.2 inch TFT nHD 360X640 display with a capacitive touch screen
- 2 GB internal storage memory with microSD card expandable to 32 GB
- 5 megapixel camera full focus with VGA recording at 15 FPS
- Runs Symbian Anna
- Interchangeable color covers
Great news for all you tablet crazy people out there. The much coveted Android honeycomb sporting ASUS EeePad transformer tablet has arrived on Indian shores, with a price tag of Rs.32,999/-.
What makes this tablet special ? Well, it’s the form factor !
Absolutely innovative stuff from ASUS. Clip on full size keyboard transforms the touchscreen tablet into a portable workhorse. Remove the keyboard and it transforms into a more portable tablet-y form factor. And it has a slew of ports that supports many interfaces like mini HDMI, USB with OTG capabilities ( Not supported in software yet ).
Other specs are like almost similar to other Honeycomb tablets with reference hardware such as : Dual core Tegra 2, 10.1 inch screen with 1280×800 resolution, 16/32 GB of mass memory, 1 GB of RAM..etc
Coming to the price, i think it’s a bit high considering the biggest competitor “iPad2” is priced much lesser at 29k. But the form factor is an attractive one, people looking for tablets as laptop replacements may find it worthy.
