Ares III

June 3, 2014 at 1:16 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , )

Ares III water-cooled gaming graphics card

ROG exhibited the limited-edition Ares III, the world’s fastest gaming graphics card powered by hand-chosen dual Radeon Hawaii XT GPUs, water-cooled to deliver 25%-cooler performance than reference R9 295X, and supported by 8GB of super-fast GDDR5 memory. The Ares III showcases exquisite craftsmanship and this can be seen in its sleek custom-designed EK water block and hand-carved details. Just 500 Ares III units will be manufactured, and each will be numbered individually, reflecting its collectible status.


Technical characteristics ROG ARES III:

The total number of streaming processors: 5632;
Memory: 4 GB GDDR5 x 2
The memory bus width: 512 bits x 2
Cooling system: polnomochiy water cooler (EK Water Blocks)
Power connection: 8+8+6 Pin
Requirements heatsink (TDP): 500 W

The dual-GPU powerhouse is driven by two “hand-selected” Radeon Hawaii XT GPUs (R9 290X cores) with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The card is overclockable according to ASUS, and will likely arrive factory overclocked as they claim it will be faster out of the box than the reference R9-295×2. The ARES III features a custom-designed EK water block, so unlike the R9 295×2 the end user will need to supply the liquid cooling loop.

ASUS claims that the ARES III will “deliver 25% cooler performance than reference R9 295X designs“, but to achieve this ASUS “highly” recommends a high flow rate loop with at least a 120×3 radiator “to extract maximum performance from the card,” and they “will provide a recommended list of water cooling systems at launch”.

Only 500 of the ARES III will be made, and are individually numbered. No pricing has been announced, but ASUS says to expect it to be more than a 295×2 ($1499) – but less than a TITAN Z ($2999). The ASUS ROG ARES III will be available in Q3 2014.

At least it comes with water blocks so it doesn’t cause the usual noise.

Stanford Bioengineers announced a milestone. A neurocore is 9.000 faster than a normal chip but it takes 40.000 times less power.


By contrast, a computer uses about 40,000 times more power and runs about 9,000 times slower just to model a mouse brain and a human brain is about 1,000 times more complex.

Steelwinter – The new NSA/NIS super computer

April 30, 2014 at 12:46 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

Steelwinter is a part of a 100 million dollar investment. Its the new super computer of norway. Steelwinter will help to crack heavy cryptology. The NSA/NIS collected millions of information.

Exascale computers have not yet been build, but when we get there, such a computer would be about 20 times more powerful than the largest supercomputer we know today, says associate professor Anne C. Elster at NTNU university in Trondheim, Norway.

Liebe Forums-Mitglieder,
ein unberechtigter Dritter hat sich Zugriff auf die Verwaltung des CHIP Forums verschafft. CHIP nimmt diesen Vorfall sehr ernst: Deshalb wurde das Forum sofort abgeschaltet und unabhängige Forensik-Experten mit der Untersuchung des Angriffs beauftragt. Bis der genaue Angriffs-Weg nachvollzogen und die ausgenutzte Sicherheitslücke behoben ist, arbeiten die Systeme in einem sicheren Read-Only-Modus. Die Anmeldung am System ist so lange nicht möglich.

Was bedeutet das für die betroffenen User?
Wir wissen nicht, ob überhaupt Nutzerdaten entwendet wurden. Diese Meldung ist eine Vorsichtsmaßnahme im Sinne unserer User. Es ist jedoch nicht auszuschließen, dass E-Mail-Adressen und verschlüsselte Passwörter (so genannte Passwort-Hashes) entwendet wurden. Der Angreifer könnte mithilfe der Passwort-Hashes schwache User-Passwörter entschlüsseln. Daher sollten Nutzer, die dasselbe Passwort auch bei anderen Diensten verwenden, dort umgehend ein neues, sicheres Passwort erstellen.

Was unternimmt CHIP, um solche Angriffe in Zukunft zu verhindern?
Gemeinsam mit den externen Experten prüfen wir den genauen Angriffsweg. Anschließend wird die ausgenutzte Sicherheitslücke geschlossen. Sobald die Anmeldung im CHIP Forum wieder möglich ist, werden wir euch über einen Forenbanner informieren. Die User des Forums müssen ihr Passwort beim nächsten Login zurücksetzen.

Weitere Informationen und Tipps findet ihr in den FAQ, die wir für euch erstellt haben:

Die Sicherheit der User-Daten liegt uns sehr am Herzen. Wir werden alles unternehmen, um diese Sicherheit wiederherzustellen und bedauern den Vorfall. Solltet ihr noch Fragen haben, stellt diese bitte an . Möchtet ihr euren Account löschen lassen, schreibt bitte in den Betreff der E-Mail „Löschen“. Als Mailinhalt schreibt bitte euren Usernamen dazu.

Vielen Dank für euer Verständnis!

Florian Konrad Schmitz,
Teamleiter Social und Community im Namen des gesamten Community-Teams
