XFX Ghost 2.0 Thermal Technology

The XFX Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics cards are also the first introduction of the all-new XFX Ghost 2.0 thermal design, which is a substantial design evolution from the original Ghost thermal design introduced in 2012. XFX’s new Ghost 2.0 features the same open airflow design for maximum cooling as well as a new lightweight poly carbonate construction for super high durability and heat resistance. A new two-piece design which protects PCB components from damage and dust and created a beautiful modern design unlike any other graphics card in history.

Unlocked Voltage

Select XFX graphics cards now feature higher voltage caps giving gamers the power to customize and truly push their graphics cards to the limit.

Digital Power

Digital power supply signal provides voltage signals that are more stable and accurate than conventional analog designs, meaning the voltage can be adjusted more quickly and precisely during overclocking. The result is more stable overclocking.

More Power Phases

XFX Graphics cards with unlocked voltage utilize a 6phase vs 5phase power design. This provides 20% lower temperature on the power IC, and provide stable power to the GPU for better overclocking.

2nd Generation PowerTune Technology

The XFX R-Series of graphics cards will feature the second generation of AMD’s PowerTune technology, which offers a substantial improvement over the previous generation. PowerTune features real-time voltage and clock speed optimization enables intelligent power monitoring to enable higher clock speeds and better performance for the newest games. Tuning the card’s settings to hit its peak clock rate more often.

Mantle and Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture

The award-winning Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture in the AMD Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics cards continues to serve as a driving force behind the Unified Gaming Strategy, now comes together with the introduction of Mantle.

Mantle empowers games like DICE’s “Battlefield 4” to speak the natively with the Graphics Core Next architecture for a deeper level of hardware multi-platform compatibility.

TrueAudio Technology: World’s First Programmable Audio Pipeline

XFX R-Series GPUs featuring AMD TrueAudio technology empowers game developers with a programmable audio pipeline on the GPU through a built-in audio signal processor which supports 150 sound sources vs the previous limitation of only 50 sounds. TrueAudio enables 7.1 surround through headphones and zero CPU overhead. This enables game to utilize more realistic environmental dynamics, a richer tapestry of sound effects, breathtaking directional audio and more.

Multi-Display Technology: Redesigned for Ultra-resolution Gaming

XFX Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics cards are made for gaming on UltraHD 4K (3840x2160) displays. Additionally, with AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology, gamers are free to use virtually any combination of display outputs when connecting matching monitors to the DVI or HDMI® outputs on their system.

Central Islip, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

On June 17, nationwide car wraps manufacturer, comments on the new Corona Extra billboard, Luna Corona, located at 15th Street and 9th Avenue in New York City.

According to an article on Adweek.com, Corona and ad agency Cramer-Krasselt designed a billboard in New York City which on certain nights of the month, from a certain angle makes the waxing crescent moon look like a slice of lime resting in a Corona bottle atop the lit billboard of a Corona Extra bottle.

Corona and its ad agency worked together with top astronomers, universities and planetariums to get the placement right.

Mike OGara, an astronomer, explains what went into the planning of this creative billboard. The feasibility of actually catching the moon in the shape of a lime and lining it up in the bottle can happen if all of the cogs fit into place. In order for you to gauge that curve correctly, you got to do it right because any miscalculations is going to be apparent.

He went on to say, The important thing is Will you be able to get that moment? And thats going to be pretty exciting to see.

TJ Pannelll, representative from JMR Graphics, a nationwide trailer wraps manufacturer, believes this was an ingenious move by Corona. Not only are they displaying their brands identity on a huge, lit billboard in the biggest city in the world but they are doing it in a way that is completely unconventional.

Piranha Graphics Goes Green Printing


Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) June 03, 2013

In a time when people are recognizing how delicate the environment is, it is important for companies to shift into a more environmentally conscious state.

Piranha Graphics, Inc. has taken the initiative and grown into an environmentally friendly corporation by taking significant steps in their production of print products, such as Postcards, Business cards, Flyers, Catalogs, and more .

Piranha Graphics was one of the first trade printers in the nation to begin using soy-oil based inks instead of traditional petroleum-based ink. Also known as vegetable-oil ink, soy ink is a great advancement in the print industry. Soy ink is a safe and environmentally friendly ink because of its simple compound compared to petroleumbased ink. Using a simple process to make the ink, it consumes very little energy and makes it very efficient.

"Many of our customers, especially government agencies, are shifting to more environmentally responsible companies. said Amy Collins, Public Relations Manager. We will always continue to use and develop the safest products to our environment."

Soy ink has many great advantages; one is its distinguishable clearness which allows for brighter colored ink, which petroleum-based ink do not allow because of its darker content. Thus soy inks are popular for their vibrant colors. Soy ink can also be easily removed from paper, which is helpful in paper recycling, as it is quicker to process the paper. As the print industry evolves, soy ink becomes an increasingly popular alternative.

Using unique Aqueous and UV coatings, Piranha Graphics has shifted yet another critical step in producing environmentally friendly print products. The coatings which consist of very low to zero traces of volatile organic compounds (VOC) reduce harmful components that damage the atmosphere and the surrounding environments. Impregnated washing systems are used for press rollers and blankets which consist of minute traces of VOCs.

Fountain solutions are free of or use reduced VOC solutions. Piranha Graphics, on the constant lookout for safer and more environmentally friendly press room products, recycles all solutions and removes hazardous waste from their facilities, preventing it from getting into the natural environment. Piranha Graphics production facilities are all alcohol-free environments using only alcohol substitutes as well. Continued development in press room products assures only the safest solutions will be used in Piranha Graphics's facilities.
