gigabyte introduces half height gtx 1050 and ti graphic cards oc low profile box

Not all gamers are so hardcore that they need the newest and fastest processors and graphics cards. Maybe they use their PCs mainly for work and only occasionally play some current games without worrying about maximizing resolutions and frame rates. For such people, spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on high-end gaming equipment would be a real waste.

Thankfully, Nvidia has come to the rescue with an excellent line of entry-level GPUs for just that kind of gamer. The GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti are excellent entry-level GPUs the provide decent performance but are relatively inexpensive and don’t require high-end power supplies. Now, Gigabyte is introducing new cards based on those GPUs that can also fit into the tiniest of cases, according to Tech Report.

Run a small business? Canon wants to help you ‘Maxify’ it with new office inkjet printers
run small business canon wants help grow new maxify printers featured

As many politicians will tell you, at least during election campaigns, a big part of the country’s economy depends on small businesses. So it is this customer that Canon is focusing with its new line of Maxify inkjet printers. Launching with five models – ranging from $150 to $400 – Maxify devices are designed to deliver high speed, high yield, and laser-quality prints, according to Canon.

Canon has always catered to small office/home office users, in particular with its inkjet Pixma MX-series and, to some extent, the ImageClass-series of laser printers. But, according to Canon U.S.A. Vice President Michael Duffett, who heads the company’s consumer printer division, the SOHO (small office, home office) space is actually an area that Canon has underserved. For its Maxify products (stylized as MAXIFY in marketing materials), Duffett says the company conducted focus groups with small business owners, “to see how their business is managed and how we can help them improve.” The series is designed to help this consumer keep costs down, give them access to U.S.-based customer service, and access to cloud-based documents.
