GIGABYTE was not long behind the release of Intels Thunderbolt, and quickly instituted the new technology on desktop boards. One of their first entries in the Z77 line with included Thunderbolt is the Z77X-UP5 TH. So far, it looks like a great product with dual-Thunderbolt, allowing for up to 12 devices. Lets see if the board can perform as well as its specs say."

PowerColor Devil 13 HD 7990 Review
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 4:07P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Managing the overclocks on a pair of cores is not much harder than overclocking a single core. The one thing to look out for is when one core crashes before the other, then working the overclock to work within the overclocking margins of the pair versus the single core. In essence this card was no harder to overclock than a single HD7970. The maximum stable speeds I could attain on this sample were 1137MHz on the core or 23% higher than the factory set 925MHz base profile and almost 14% higher than the 1000MHz Boost profile. Overclocking the 1500MHz rated memory that is clocked at 1375MHz from PowercColor yielded a decent 200MHz boost to 1575MHz or a close to 15% boost. Overclocking does deliver solid improvements across the board in each of the tests run. Improvement were most evident at a resolution of 5760x1080 where I saw an increase of 14% in CIV V, 25% in BF3, and just under 18% in Batman Arkham City."

IDF 2012 Opening Keynote - Haswell Windows 8 & More @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 12:11P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel showed a slide that said Haswell will have uncompromised performance, all day use and greater than 10 days of connected standby. This all adds up to a mainstream notebook that has a connected standby power that is 20x better than we what we had in 2011 with the Sandy Bridge architecture. The slide also said that Intel is targeting 2013 to launch Haswell, which supports the rumored Q2 2013 launch time frame..."

REVIEW: Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 11:44A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X comes with a custom cooler, and if history is any indication, we expect very big things from this Vapor-X technology, as Sapphire typically produces some of the coolest-running Radeon cards out there. Perhaps more importantly, however, the 7970 Vapor-X sports a factory overclock, to the tune of a 1GHz clock speed. This should provide enough of a speed boost for it to better competes against the competition`s offerings. Can the Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X live up to the expectations? Let`s find out."

GIGABYTE GTX 680 Super Overclock Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 9:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There has been quite the commotion caused by GIGABYTE over their Super Overclock GTX680, not because it is one of the fastest factory overclocked cards available, nor because it is also one of the most expensive single core GPUs available. The ruffling of many feather came when it was revealed in Taipei to have 5 fans. Yes, that`s right FIVE! Now, I will be the first to admit that when our news reporter first posted this news I assumed it to be some sort of concept that would never see the light of day. Surely GIGABYTE would be insane to release a card which uses 5 small fans to cool a triple slot heatsink, especially when their Windforce x3 card does it so efficiently. Nevertheless, they have released it. It`s available as I type and should you get to see and hold one in person you will appreciate that Super is just one of many adjectives that could be used by GIGABYTE to describe it. Super just doesn`t sit quite right for something so monolithic in appearance. I am relishing this card more than any other at present simply because it promises so much. Can it deliver on those promises though?"

Sapphire FleX HD 7770 GHz Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 9:28A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphires selection of cards for the HD 7000 series has been impressive to say the least. On top of having stock and overclocked versions of every model, they also have a few different models like the Vapor-X and FleX, each serving a different purpose. The vapor-X models having ungraded cooling and their FLeX models have improved support for multiple monitors. We have taken a look at everything else from their HD 7770 lineup; its only natural that we take a look at the HD 7770 as well. We know that FleX cards can be great deals for people looking for a cheaper way to run multiple monitors without having to pick up active Displayport adapters or Displayport monitors, lets take a look at the HD 7770 FleX and see if it holds up to the FleX name."
