COLORFUL Adds NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & RTX 2080 Into AD Series

No comments


Colorful Technology Company Limited, professional manufacturer of graphics cards, motherboards and high-performance storage solutions, adds two new cards into its AD series, which were named as iGame GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Advanced OC and iGame GeForce RTX 2080 Advanced OC.



The new NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX GPUs have reinvented graphics and set a new bar for performance. Powered by the new NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture and the revolutionary NVIDIA RTX platform, the new graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading. This is not only a whole new way to experience games — this is the ultimate PC gaming experience.

The new GPUs were unveiled at a special NVIDIA two-day event called the “GeForce Gaming Celebration” which kicked off on August 20th at the Palladium in Cologne, Germany ahead of Gamescom 2018.         

iGame GeForce RTX 2080 Advanced OC features Turing architecture and TU102  GPU. The 8 (11 for RTX 2080 Ti) GB GDDR6X memory is running with 448 GB/S memory bandwidth. This card features 8+2 (13+3 for RTX 2080 Ti) phase digital power supply via I.P.P (iGame Pure Power) and is equipped with Silver Sharp cooler as well as 16,8 million colors RGB lights on it. Customers can adjust its RGB lights via iGame ZoneII that can be downloaded from Colorful official website.

Colorful upgrades Advanced armour this time for GeForce RTX 2080Ti and RTX 2080 AD series with alloy casting technics to make it harder and seem more technical.

For the cooling solution, Colorful takes vacuum copper plate for new AD series. The vacuum copper plate, highlights this release, is filled into cooling liquid and copper power to its vacuum space. This design is totally helpful for GPU heat sinking. Compared with normal copper plate, vacuum copper plate can do better to promote the heat loss. 

iGame GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Advanced OC and iGame GeForce RTX 2080 Advanced OC are going to be the good choice for high-end customers.

Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd., world’s leading manufacturer of aluminum chassis for enthusiasts, custom OEM/ODM case solutions and case accessories is pleased to announce the official launch of the LANCOOL ONE chassis. Featuring Lian Li’s signature brushed aluminum finish and quality combined with modern RGB lighting, the LANCOOL ONE brings a new twist to a classic Lian Li design. Debuted in the recent COMPUTEX 2018 expo, the LANCOOL ONE has already managed to wow consumers due to its unique design and incredible value offering.

Classic Look with Modern RGB


Nobody in the business does aluminum better than Lian Li and the LANCOOL ONE continues that legacy with its stylish aluminum front panel which exudes a timeless, elegant vibe but is given a modern touch with impressive RGB lighting. The RGB lighting serves as both an accent piece for the front panel as well an ambient lighting for the internal chamber giving it a two-in-one function that provides a lot of value. The LEDs also illuminate front fans directly so users not using RGB fans on the front can get the illusion of using RGB fans on the front thanks to the front panel lighting.

Lian Li has worked with all leading motherboard brands to provide the LANCOOL ONE with RGB sync support with most popular lighting control software like ASUS AURA Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, ASRock Polychrome and MSI Mystic Light.

Optimized Airflow for Great Cooling


Both top and front panels of the Lian Li LANCOOL ONE offer great airflow. Lian Li has designed the LANCOOL ONE to have optimized airflow so users who want to maximize cooling can do so thanks to plenty of fan mounting locations. Integrated removable dust filters allow ease-of-cleaning and reduced dust inside the chassis. The front panel of the LANCOOL ONE features an open front slit and side vents maintain looks while still providing high airflow for a great balance of looks and function. 

The LANCOOL One supports up 360mm radiators on the top or front (only one at a time) or users can also mount a single 280mm radiator on the front. A total of nine 120mm fans can be installed on the LANCOOL One for incredible airflow possibilities.
Multifunction PSU Shroud

Increase cooling in your case or add more storage with the Lian Li’s innovative dual-function PSU shroud. The shroud includes removable drive trays to house two additional 2.5” drives like SSDs or mount additional two 120mm fans for improved cooling that helps in cooling PCIe devices like the GPU. Underneath the PSU shroud, user can install up to two 3.5” drives like HDDs for further storage. The drive cage is removable and you can move it so you can have more space underneath the shroud for other airflow or modifications.

Cable Management Made Easy


The modular drive cage caddy can be removed for easier cable routing and the LANCOOL ONE also features plenty of tie down points for easier cable management. This enables a cleaner look and an easier time when doing maintenance.
Modern Meets Classic with More Features

The LANCOOL ONE features a full tempered glass side panel which is locked in place with LIAN LI’s signature mounting system, which allows for a seamless look yet still secure and easy to use. This makes it easier to remove your tempered glass panel and do maintenance and cleaning as well as installation of new components on your system.

Support for modern systems is given attention as the LANCOOL ONE supports up to larger EATX motherboards and the tilted tray design compliments the cable management feature of the LANCOOL ONE making it easier to route cables on the front. Motherboards following the E-ATX standard with dimensions of 12” x 10.9” can fit in the LANCOOL ONE. Furthermore, The LANCOOL ONE can accommodate motherboards with width of up to 280mm.
For greater presentation possibilities, the LANCOOL ONE can accommodate vertical GPU mounting.

The Evolution of Play - Growing Up With Video Games

No comments

For more than two decades, PlayStation has been a source of fun and entertainment, providing gamers fond childhood memories to look back on. From the age of memory cards and booklets of CDs to having an extraordinary gaming experience with the PlayStation VR, one can’t help but feel nostalgic while paying homage to their beloved games.

Let’s take a trip down the PlayStation memory lane and check out how our favorite games have evolved over time.

God of War


First Release: God of War | PS2 | 2005
Latest Release: God of War | PS4 | 2018

  

The God of War franchise could easily be considered as one of the most popular titles among PlayStation gamers, making it the fastest-selling title on PS4 exceeding sales of 3.1 million copies in the first three days of its release. The title has produced a variety of main installments and several side games with the storyline, gameplay and of course, graphics, changing along the way.

One of the main developments in the latest release is leaving its Greek roots and moving on to the world of Norse Mythology. Its gameplay has also changed throughout the years. God of War features a third-person camera viewed from over-the-shoulder compared to previous installments with a fixed camera perspective. A departure though from the PS3 installment Ascension, the latest release goes back to single-player mode similar to its early releases. The PS4 Pro edition of the game features commendable graphics with two modes: Performance and Resolution, which players can easily switch to and from.

Uncharted


First Release: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune | PS3 | 2007
Latest Release: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy| PS4 | 2017

  

As a franchise that has spanned for almost a decade, Uncharted has seen four main installments plus a prequel, a card-game spin-off, and a standalone expansion. All four major installments of the series offer a single-player mode controlling its protagonist Nathan Drake. Each installment’s storyline takes gamers to a different setting following the action-packed journey of Drake as he seeks lost treasures and cities. Drake’s final appearance in the series (Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End) is marked by a number of accolades praising key elements such as graphics, character development, and storyline.

But how do you make an Uncharted game without Nathan Drake as your lead? Naughty Dog had an answer and made the right move passing on the torch. In the Lost Legacy, gamers got a pair of bad-ass women in the form of Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross snapping necks and cashing treasure-endorsed cheques. The game featured all of the hallmarks of the celebrated Uncharted franchise, including a rich cinematic story, action-packed set pieces, exotic destinations, and intricate puzzles.

The standalone franchise also involved Filipino skills and artistry. Manila-based game development studio Secret 6 collaborated with Naughty Dog to produce the game, with the former being the brain and talent behind the Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’s assets. The 140-man team of Secret 6 made over 100 assets for the game including high-quality cinematic assets, hero assets like weapons and vehicles, and environmental props.

Gran Turismo


First Release: Gran Turismo | PS1| 1997
Latest Release: Gran Turismo Sport | PS4 | 2017

  

Since its launch in 1997, Gran Turismo has since become one of the most iconic titles in PlayStation. This racing video game series has since released over 15 games, seven of which being primary releases, beginning from PS1 all the way to PS4.

Gran Turismo has two modes: arcade and simulation. Arcade allows gamers to choose any vehicle and inflict damage whereas Simulation Mode requires players to truly act like professional drivers – this means getting licenses as well as paying for vehicles and customization. From its debut to its current release, major changes include the expanded number and kinds of cars as well as the development of the game graphics. It has also since developed an online-aspect for the game in which players can compete with other users and race online.

Ratchet & Clank


First Release: Ratchet & Clank | PS2 | 2002
Latest Release: Ratchet & Clank | PS4 | 2016

  

A mascot-driven game featuring a humanoid and a robot takes center stage in Ratchet & Clank. Ratchet is a Lombax – a fictional species that come from the planet Fastoon – and has lived by himself as a mechanic on the planet Veldin. Clank is his robot partner who previously escaped from the war-robot factory in which he was created. Together they go on missions to fight evil forces in the universe.

The series has spawned eight major titles to its name, several spin-offs, and a reimagining of the first game as its latest release. For the most part, the series has stayed true to its roots in terms of gameplay. It has maintained its mix of platforming, action, and RPG elements with Ratchet being the main playable character.

In the 2016 version, the reimagined masterpiece places you in a world filled with colorful visuals that you don’t regularly see in most games. This beloved platformer was supposed to be a HD remake of the 2002 classic, but fans were pleasantly surprised to see that this Ratchet and Clank was a total reimagination of its predecessor. With new weapons, races, and upgrades, the latest version was a hit with gamers.

Spider-Man


First Release: Spider-Man | PS1| 2000
Latest Release: Spider-Man | PS4 | 2018

 

Last but not the least, from the makers of Ratchet & Clank comes another iconic title starring one of the world’s most well-known superheroes. In its first launch in 2000, we saw Spider-Man going through different levels and battling various villains such as Venom, Carnage, and Mysterio to name a few. Gamers also got to experience the superhero’s capabilities as they crawl walls, swing distances, and shoot webs at opponents.

Fast forward to 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Insomniac Games, and Marvel have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man adventure. This isn’t the Spider-Man you’ve met or ever seen before. This is an experienced Peter Parker who’s more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, he’s struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of millions of New Yorkers rest upon his shoulders.
