Colorful has unveiled a range of new iGame branded products at Computex 2015 which include their iGame GTX 980 Ti KUDAN, iGame GTX Titan X graphics cards and several iGame branded Z170 chipset based motherboards. All new products feature powerful PCBs and design schemes to offer the best and superior performance to users.

Colorful Unveils iGame GTX 980 Ti KUDAN, iGame GTX Titan X Kudan and Z170 Motherboards

Colorful has their latest iGame GTX 980 Ti KUDAN powering the high-end graphics section of their lneup with a triple slot and triple fan design which is expected from their KUDAN series. The card comes with a unique shroud layout that is colored black, red and silver. Three PWM controlled fans push air to a central aluminum fin array based heatsink block which is fitted with several heatpipes to dissipate heat. The card is powered by dual 8-Pin connectors and a fully customized PCB that allows far better overclocking than reference models plus it has a factory overclock that can be enabled through a secondary BIOS through a push of a switch on the rear panel connector. There are no exact specifications known but Colorful has a total of three iGame GTX 980 Ti cards, two of which they have shown off at Computex and one is already available in mainland China.

The second card is the iGame GeForce GTX Titan X which is a fully water cooled design that has a full length waterblock featured on the card. The PCB beneath the card is based on a reference design but watercooling will allow far better overclocking on a card that will ship with factory overclocked specs. Colorful ships the card with a 240mm radiator which will be enough to keep the card running at sound temperatures. Colorful’s sister brand, Colorfire, also revealed their own custom Radeon graphics card based on the Radeon R9 285 graphics card. The Colorfire Radeon R9 285 XStorm has a highly modified PCB and a dense aluminum fin based heatsink that is cooled by three PWM controlled fans. The card also ships with a factory overclock that can be enabled through the push of a switch.

Colorful iGame Z170 Motherboards Showcased

Colorful also showcased several Z170 motherboards, all of these motherboards are branded as their iGame products and have custom PCB designs and features which differentiate each board from one another. The Colorful iGame Z170-X and iGame Z170-G feature an all-black and the socket is powered by a single 8-Pin power connector. The socket is surrounded by a 16 phase power design which is going to delivers power and overclocking potential to the processor chip. The whole VRM block is cooled off by a large thermal armor layout which extends throughout the motherboard, cooling off the VRMs, Audio PCB and PCH. The thermal armor also adds durability to the main I/O connectors and the bulky mass of the board. Additionally, the iGame Z170-G board also has the option to allow liquid cooling through the built-in water cooling inlet which can be equipped with barbs of different sizes, depending on the configuration and make a cross-channel liquid flow to prevent the VRMs from heating up during overclocking sessions.

Storage includes 12 SATA 6 GB/s ports and one can expect a single or even two SATA Express ports on the final design. Furthermore, we have a USB 3.0 header, two USB 2.0 headers and a few accessability buttons on the top-right corner. Expansion slots include three PCI-e 3.0 x16 and three PCI-e 3.0 x1 slots along with a single M.2 interface. The isolated audio PCB has its own chip integrated which might be a successor of the ALC1150 series we saw on the current Z97 motherboards.

The PCB of the Z170 iGame-U seems to be all-black and the socket is powered by a single 8-Pin power connector. The socket is surrounded by a IPP 14-phase power design which is going to deliver unprecedented power and overclocking potential to the processor chip. The whole VRM block is cooled off by a large thermal armor layout which extends throughout the motherboard, cooling off the VRMs, Audio PCB and PCH. The thermal armor also adds durability to the main I/O connectors and the bulky mass of the board. In concept design, the motherboard was shown to feature built-in liquid cooling support however, that feature has now been shifted to another model which packs a full thermal armor design and has a ton of overclocking features.

Storage includes 6 SATA 6 GB/s ports and two SATA Express ports on the final design. Furthermore, we have a USB 3.0 header, two USB 2.0 headers and a few accessability buttons on the top-right corner. Expansion slots include three PCI-e 3.0 x16 and three PCI-e 3.0 x1 slots along with a single M.2 interface. The isolated audio PCB has its own chip integrated that is branded as Gamer Voice. There are some additional features such as Killer E2201 and Intel I211-AT to boost connectivity features. The front I/O includes 6 USB 3.0, four USB 2.0, SPDIF, PS/2 port, Dual Gigabit LAN ports and a 8-Channel Audio jack. We will hit you with more information as soon as we get more details or pictures on these products.
