AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition Review
     Mon, Jul 02 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was exactly 6 months ago that AMD officially took the wraps off its Tahiti GPU and the original Radeon HD 7970. The Radeon HD 7970 was the first graphics card to feature AMD’s “Graphics Core Next”, or GCN, architecture and when it hit the scene, the Radeon HD 7970 proved to be the fastest single-GPU based graphics card available. Since that time though, NVIDIA went ahead and released their Kepler-based GK104 GPU and the GeForce GTX 600 series of graphics cards. Although GK104 was comprised of fewer transistors and used less power, it ended up outpacing the Radeon HD 7970 more often than not. As you can imagine, that didn’t sit well with AMD. So, for Tahiti’s half-birthday, they went ahead and refreshed the Radeon HD 7970, by tweaking a few key aspects of the card and adding some new features. The end result is the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition...

AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition Review
     Mon, Jul 02 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having successfully launched their first 28nm GPU last January, AMD went on to release an entire family of Radeon HD 7000 GPUs over the next few months. The last of the series were the Radeon HD 7870 and 7850 graphics cards, which were closely followed by the launch of Nvidia’s next generation flagship part, the GeForce GTX 680. Fast forward to the present day and it'd appear that AMD is desperate to claim the bragging rights of offering the single fastest GPU money can buy. As the name suggests the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition features a core clock speed of 1GHz, along with overclocked GDDR5 memory running at 1500MHz. AMD plans to charge a small premium for the GHz cards at $499, but is it worth it?

Posted by: STAFF

Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow Edition PC Tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Jul 02 2012 | 9:10A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Armor Revo is a modern take on the original sporting the same double hinged panels just like the older brother. But the new Revo comes in two flavors: black and white and has many of the features that we have seen in the Chasers, Overseer and several other cases we have seen from Thermaltake in the past few months. But are these newly added features enough to make the Revo a classic? We will try to answer that question here today."

HOWTO: Multi-Display Online Gaming @ HardwareHeaven.com Sometimes in the technology industry there can be a real gap between what a product offers and what consumers need... or that until a consumer experiences something it seems like an unnecessary expense, or not worthwhile. Something which it would seem very much falls into one or both of those categories is multi-display gaming, either AMD Eyefinity or NVIDIA Surround."

Posted by: STAFF
In a market with over a billion (give or take a couple) different chassis for under $100, finding the "right one" is easier said than done. Fortunately, there are some vendors where you pretty-well know by default that their product won't let you down. Corsair is one of those, and we're here to see if its Carbide 300R lives up to those high expectations.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T review
     Sun, Jul 01 2012 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen quite a few ASUS tablets pass by our test lab. Still, the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is a special model. That's because it doesn't have the 1280x800 resolution of the Eee Pad Transformer Prime and the Transformer Pad TF300T, but an impressive 1920x1200 resolution. This is slightly more than Full HD resolution on a 10-inch display. To find out what the user experience is like and whether the higher price is worth it, Hardware.Info thoroughly tested the latest tablet by ASUS.
