REVIEW: Diamond 7870 GHz Edition @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Apr 01 2013 | 9:19A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Radeon 7870 sits in the middle of AMD?s product lineup, at the ?performance? echelon. It?s far more affordable than the potent flagship 7970, yet packs far more than the gaming-anemic 7750. It?s been awhile since we?ve seen a graphics card from Diamond, but today we?re looking at the company?s 7870 GHz Edition, a model that sports a smaller PCB design and a custom cooler, as well as some flashy red styling. Retailing for about $239 ($219 after rebate), this card is quite affordable, and while we don?t expect it to be a gaming powerhouse, it could prove very enticing to gamers on a more modest budget. Let?s take a closer look at the Diamond 7870 GHz Edition and see how it fares.?"

AMD Radeon HD 7790 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Mar 31 2013 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD hasn`t been able to muster up a competitor against NVIDIA`s $149 GTX 650 Ti for the better part of 6 months but that`s about to change with the introduction of the HD 7790. By utilizing the brand new Bonaire core, AMD has been able to hit a near-perfect blend of performance and efficiency. Budget-conscious gamers should sit up and take notice. * *"

Windows 8 Outperforming Ubuntu Linux With Intel OpenGL Graphics
     Sun, Mar 31 2013 | 12:09P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our benchmarks of Microsoft Windows 8, we have found that Intel`s Windows OpenGL driver is generally superior to that of their open-source Linux graphics driver. Some progress has been made, but in today`s testing of an ASUS Ultrabook bearing an Ivy Bridge processor, Linux has a ways to go for some games in matching the Windows binary performance and features."

Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Mar 31 2013 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s review focuses on the new Platinum range, specifically the 2133MHz Quad Channel (8x4GB) kit. With Intel`s X79 slowly increasing in popularity, more and more memory manufacturers are beginning to create Quad channel memory kits, none more so than Corsair. Indeed, we use their own Vengeance kit in our test system; such is the robust and reliable performance of Corsair products. The Platinum range is an evolution of that ethos and as the precious metal name suggests, it is the result of years of research, culminating in the pinnacle of their skill to produce the kit we have for review today."

AMD Radeon HD 7790 Review - Sea Islands and Bonaire Make an Appearance
     Sat, Mar 30 2013 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s new Radeon HD 7790 is the first Sea Islands GPU to find its way to the channel market and Bonaire proves to be very compelling product in the sub-$200 market that is usually quite crowded. Because of NVIDIA`s gap in product that lies between $149 and $230 (GTX 650 Ti to the GTX 660) the Radeon HD 7790 should make a pretty big splash as long as it has that opening. The question is how long NVIDIA will wait to finally address this whole in its lineup that has existed for many months."
