GIGABYTE HD 6870 Super Overclock Video Card Review
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 8:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Would you be better served by a feature rich HD 6870 or a plain-Jane HD 6950? The GIGABYTE HD 6870 Super Overclock certainly has features of plenty with an improved three fan cooling solution, factory boosted frequencies and high quality components. Enough to trump a reference Radeon HD 6950 for the money?

Gigabyte GTX 580 Super Overclock
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 8:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GTX 580 cards maturing in the marketplace, board partners have begun to release pre-overclocked versions of NVIDIA's current single GPU flagship. A short time ago we looked at MSI's Lightning and came away impressed. Today, Gigabyte's GTX 580 Super Overclock steps up to the plate and it looks ready to take on the big boys.

GIGABYTE GTX 560 OC.
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 7:58P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the box, the GIGABYTE GTX 560 OC runs at 830MHz, or 20 MHz above the stock clocked cards, so no fussing with OC tools is required. We, of course will overclock the GIGABYTE GTX-560 OC until it begs for mercy. The 1 GB of GDDR 5 on the GTX-560 OC runs at a blazing 4008 MHz and it sports a hefty 1660 MHz Shader clock. As with all modern video cards, users will need a PCI-E slot, and the card is PCI-E 2.0 ready but is backwards compatible with PCI-E 1.0 with very little bandwidth loss. In other words, running it in a PCI-E 1.0 slot will still provide a lot of bang for a little buck, and it'll be a nice upgrade, even on older motherboards. GIGABYTE and Nvidia recommend using a good quality 500W Power Supply with 2x 6 pin PCI-E power connectors.

Gigabyte GTX 560 (GV-N56GOC-1GI)
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 7:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So as a new day dawns, we see yet another mid-range GPU being released; the new Nvidia GTX 560. Equipped with reference clock speeds, this new card runs at a respectable 830MHz on the core clock and 1GB of GDDR5 memory running at 2004MHz (4008MHz effective) fed by a 256bit bus. Last, but not least, the 336 CUDA cores which scream along at 1660MHz. The first model we get to play with today is the one from our friends at Gigabyte. Follow along as we dig into it and test it's metal against the competition.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 7:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is among the bestsellers in the 200 Euro segment. It represents a generation of graphics cards that would have been high-end half a year ago, but now is affordable mainstream. As NVIDIA leaves its board partners flexibility, there are many interesting variants, like todays Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC.

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 Motherboard Feature Preview
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 7:13P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Z68 is a very strange chipset in that it combines the overclocking features of the P67 and graphical features of the H67 into a single chipset. They have also added some key technologies that help differentiate it from the versions and make it better at the same time.

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Intel Z68 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 6:58P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today, the newest chipset for Intel processors is the Z68 Express and motherboards like the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 which are built around it offer up a mainstream suite of capabilities and a kitchen sink full o'features. On the all important videocard front there are two options - integrated graphics via the board's HDMI/Display Port/DVI-D/Analog video outputs, or PCI Express based discrete graphics cards. In terms of videocards, the GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard will handle one PCI Express 2.0 x16 videocard in x16 mode or a pair of nVidia Geforce / ATI Radeon videocards in SLI or Crossfire, in x8/x8 mode."

Posted by: STAFF
We go back now to the Intel X58 platform with a look at Gigabyte's $500 whopper of a motherboard, G1.Assassin. It's a killer all right, both in terms of features and price!

AMD A8-3870 APU with Unlocked BClk Multiplier - Ready for Overclocking?
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 5:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After a modest launch of two Fusion A8 series desktop accelerated processing units (APUs) with A6-3650 and A8-3850, AMD is planning to launch a new APU that's better equipped for overclocking. The new A8-3870 APU will feature an unlocked base clock (BClk) multiplier that makes overclocking easier. Currently, a BIOS bug that is spread across motherboard manufacturers, lets users "set" a higher multiplier value for A8-3850 than it's advertised or capable of responding to, resulting in a false illusionary overclock that doesn't yield any performance improvements over the default 29x multiplier value. The A8-3870 APU, however, will have a genuinely unlocked multiplier, increasing the multiplier value will genuinely increase clock speeds and performance. The A8-3870 is expected to have a default clock speed of 3.10 GHz, four x86-64 cores..."

Gigabyte Aivia M8600 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 5:28P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the moments before I sat down in the office to write this review, Wes and I wrestled with the web of cords that we hide behind the monitor. Given the opportunity, I think any user would jump on the chance to eliminate even one from that mess. Attractive of a thought as that is, wireless peripherals aren't always the friendliest, in cost or performance. We visited Gigabyte's Ghost engine last year with the M8000Xtreme, and today we sit down with the newest addition, one that is designed to cut down the clutter of cables.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
