Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card tested with Catalyst 12.2
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 3:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the launch of the new HD 7950 we checked out a pair of pre-overclocked Sapphire cards in CrossFire. Today we check out the other HD 7950 the company is offering and see how it goes with the latest WHQL driver from AMD which is the first official driver for the HD 7900 series. Outside of our normal Catalyst article we expanded upon our testing when we looked at the Diamond HD 7970 where we tested our complete benchmark line up on the latest driver and found some nice improvements."

REVIEW: Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 2:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today marks the highly anticipated launch of Nvidia`s Kepler lineup, with the GeForce GTX 680 being the first out of the gate as the company`s flagship desktop card. We, like many others, expect big things from Kepler. Is the GeForce GTX 680 fast? It certainly is, but that`s not really unexpected. So what`s really intresting and impressive? How about providing twice the performance per Watt? What about dynamically adjusting clock speeds, voltages, and power consumption hard-wired into the card? What about Base Clocks and Boost Clocks, and automatic overclocking out of the box? Oh, now those are the things that should really excite you. But just how much does all this juicy goodness cost? Only $499."

NVIDIA GTX 680 Review
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 11:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good bit of negative feedback is present on the Internet about how the Kepler cards overclock. Even I was worried, but after realizing that the level to which the power target can be set can not possibly cause the card to decrease its clocks, those worries went away. As soon as I saw my set clock speed steady for every benchmark, I felt loads better. So, to put this to rest, your overclocking potential is not going to be limited AT ALL! So, looping Unigine 3.0 while I was overclocking, I was able to reach 1305MHz on the core and 1628MHz (6500MHz effective) on the memory. That`s nearly a 30% increase on the core and just under 10% on the memory. I was hoping for 7GHz memory here, but it couldn`t quite make it. Even while pushing the card past its limit and having the overclock fail, the system never crashed. Only the graphics card driver fails, but successfully recovers. It is certainly the most painless overclocking I`ve had for sure; the system never locked up!"

NVIDIA GTX 680 2GB Reviews @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 11:05P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA`s Kepler is finally here and after months of waiting, we finally get to see the first card with this new architecture: the GTX 680. The GTX 680 is based around a GK104 core and 2GB of GDDR5 memory but what really makes it stand out from the competition is NVIDIA new focus upon power efficiency coupled with class leading performance. Bucking their past trends, NVIDIA expects this card to beat the HD 7970 in benchmarks while consuming significantly less power and costing less than its AMD competitor. Sounds too good to be true, doesn`t it? * *"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 9:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the seven game titles that we tested today, we found the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 to be 14.34% faster than the stock AMD Radeon HD 7970 reference card when we compared all of the tests results at a resolution of 1920x1080. Factor in that the GeForce GTX 680 costs $50 less and you got yourself some pretty good reasons to go with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 over an AMD Radeon HD 7900 series card..."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Graphics Performance @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 7:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of the many platforms available for gamers to enjoy video games, there`s no question that the highest quality graphics come from PC. While game developers might not consider PC gaming as lucrative as entertainment consoles, companies like NVIDIA use desktop graphics to set the benchmark for smaller more compact designs that make it into notebooks, tablets, and smartphone devices. NVIDIA`s Kepler GPU architecture is an example of this, delivering unprecedented performance while operating cooler and consuming far less power than previous flagship discrete graphics cards. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the NVIDIA GeForce GTX680 video card equipped with a 28nm GK104 Kepler GPU, and compares it against the best DirectX 11 video cards available. Featuring their new NVIDIA GPU Boost technology, the GeForce GTX 680 video card can dynamically adjust power and clock speeds based on real-time application demands."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 Video Card Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 6:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The release of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 ushers in a new class of enthusiast GPU. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 GPU is based on the new 28nm Kepler architecture which sports the next generation Streaming Multiprocessor (SMX) containing a massive 1536 CUDA core count. While designed to be powerful, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 is also very efficient, requiring only two additional 6-pin power connectors compared to the previous generation GTX 580 as well as AMD`s latest HD 7970 video card which requires extra 6-pin and an 8-pin PCI-E power connectors./"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB Graphics Card Review - Kepler in Motion
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 5:39P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think it goes without saying that the new GeForce GTX 680 2GB graphics card from NVIDIA really has impressed me in my short time with it. The performance of the new Kepler GPU is astounding as it was able to best the Radeon HD 7970 in the large majority or our tests and really only lost to it in one ? Metro 2033. While some users might stress over the variability that it introduces, I think the GPU Boost technology is innovative and really helps the GPU stand up above the HD 7970 3GB in overall performance. Added bonuses like Adaptive VSync and Frame Rate Targeting add to the differentiation of the GTX 680 and the long-awaited ability to run NVIDIA Surround gaming configurations on a single GPU really completes the story."

Politics, intrigue, assassination and plotting. Going to war against infidels and pleasing the Pope. Claiming land from your neighbors and getting rid of inconvenient family members. That`s good old Middle Ages, for you. Read through Mario`s review of Crusader Kings II and please, please, do not attempt at home the things he`s done."

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.
