Cooler Master CM Inferno Review Saturday, 01 January 2011 17:36   The mouse is the bread and butter and ultimate tool for anyone who plays games on the PC. Over the past dozen years there's been an explosion in shapes and sizes of it and for all different utilities. It's evolved quite nicely from a few buttons and a mouse ball to lasers, lights, and more buttons than most people would ever know what to do with. That, however, is not the case for gamers. Cooler Master has a new mouse out specifically built for MMORPGs that are so popular, the Cooler Master Inferno.

The dominance of Nvidia's GeForce 260 and 280 didn't last very long as AMD quickly released the 4850 and 4870 and more recently the 4870 X2 which reviewed yesterday. However, as normal with most Nvidia partners overclocked cards have started to come out and a few of them show some promise. Today we'll be looking at the Asus GeForce GTX 260 TOP which is one of this cards that comes overclocked out of the box.

 

From the initial look of things not much has changed with the new Asus GTX TOP as the Darth Vader black plastic shroud remains on the card. The Asus sticker though is fairly unique with one of their CGI characters on the front of the heatsink as normal although this time in an interesting camocolor scheme. Not a radical physical change but a slight adjustment from the norm of video cards.

The big changes happen under the hood where Asus have overclocked the GeForce GTX TOP to a 650MHz core speed up from 575MHz of your standard clock. The GDDR3 memory also sees a bump up to 2.3Ghz from 1.9GHz which should help when the card is aching for memory bandwidth. The rest of the core specs remain the same with 192 shaders, 896MB of RAM, dual DVI out, and so on.

The hardware bundle is fairly standard with a DVI-to-VGA adapter, HDTV-out cable, molex power adapter, Asus utilities and drier CD, and Asus now near standard CD leather wallet. A few of their cards include a game bundle but this is not one of them.

Here are the specs from Asus.
