AMD R9 Fury graphics card
     Sun, Aug 02 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Fury X was fast but now comes the less expensive, more adaptable R9 Fury. At $549 it sits in a position straddled by the FuryX, GTX 980Ti and GTX 980.

ASUS STRIX Gaming GTX 980 Ti DirectCU 3
     Sun, Aug 02 2015 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we look at one of the most exciting graphics cards to hit our labs this year – the new Asus STRIX Gaming GTX 980 Ti featuring the latest Direct CU 3 cooling system. This 3 fan cooling system uses a new patented wing blade fan to provide greater air pressure, and cooling capabilities. The DCIII cooler is equipped with two beefy 10mm direct touch copper heatpipes. Interestingly, the Asus GTX980 Ti Strix solution is built with a total automated production process and incorporates a 14 phase (12+2) Super Alloy Power II power system for maximum reliability. With the highest ‘out of the box’ overclock speeds to grace our labs yet, is this the high end GPU you should be shortlisting for a new system build this summer?

GTA V performance review: tested with 23 GPUs
     Sun, Aug 02 2015 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week is a special week at Hardware.Info UK & US, because we’re planning the mother of all heists – and giving the goods away on completion of this very special mission. The PC release of Grand Theft Auto V prompted us to grab our glass cutters, lock picks and pliers giant stack of video cards and a load of test platforms and set to benchmarking. Today sees the publication of our test results with Grand Theft Auto V on our default testing platform (Core i7 5690X) with 23 GPUs, 3 resolutions and 2 settings. Tomorrow, we do the same, but with two more modest platforms (Core i3 and Core i5) – and Thursday we come back for more loot, testing the game on AMD FX-8350. By the end of the week, readers should have a pretty good idea about the best configuration and setting, regardless of their chosen CPU.

"To start with, I have to say I am impressed with what PNY has brought to the table with its GTX 960 XLR8. There is not a single game in my testing where it fell below 35FPS at 1920x1080 using moderately high settings. Running at the stock clock speed (for this card at least), it was a higher performer than the GTX 960 comparison card, and in some games better than the R9 285. From a performance perspective, the card is spot on. Of course, you can use NVIDIA's ecosystem to tune and tweak the settings to get the highest FPS possible, using tools like GeForce Experience that has a library of settings for a plethora of the most popular games being played today. If tweaking the settings does not offer enough performance, you can add a second GTX 960 XLR8 in an SLI configuration to get that FPS fix.”

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition Video Card
     Sun, Aug 02 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti recently hit the planet like a bolt of lightning offering more CUDA processors and memory bandwidth to satisfy the extreme gaming enthusiast. The Maxwell GPU shares all the familiar features of the original GTX 980 which is a very powerful GPU in its own right, but still ones ups it on paper. The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition, is the first wave of enhanced, non-stock models that boast the fastest internal frequencies to date. With three cooling fans, heat pipes, extreme frequencies and 6GB of video memory, this video card is poised to beat all others right out of the box.

MSI Radeon R7 370 GAMING 4G
     Sun, Aug 02 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The latest graphics card we've been testing the past few weeks under Linux is the MSI Radeon R7 370 GAMING 4G. This mid-range graphics card is equipped with a very quiet heatsink fan and will work on both the latest open and closed-source AMD Linux graphics drivers. Of interest to many Linux enthusiasts who are concerned about noise is that with MSI's ZERO FROZR feature, the fans will stop completely while the system is idling or just engaging in light gaming or multimedia tasks."

XFX R9 390 Double Dissipation Core Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jul 31 2015 | 2:38P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I had the chance to check out our first R9 390 with the Sapphire Nitro. Well today we get to take a look at what XFX has to offer. This gives us a great chance to compare the cards against each other along with all of the cards previous tested. This helps put more perspective on their individual performance to find out what card is best for your specific build. So today I’m going to run the XFX R9 390 Double Dissipation Core Edition through all of our in-game, compute, and synthetic performance tests as well as the more specific per card tests like noise and cooling performance. In the past the XFX cards have performed well, but it might have its hand full with the triple fan cooler on the Sapphire.

AMD's Fiji GPU

Posted by: STAFF
The air-cooled version of AMD's Fiji GPU is here in the form of the Radeon R9 Fury. We go inside the second with the Asus version of this card, the Strix R9 Fury. We also finally get a look at R9 390 and 390X cards from XFX and Asus, respectively, that round out AMD's refreshed lineup of high-end Radeons.

PowerColor PCS+ R9 380 4GB
     Thu, Jul 30 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the PowerColor PCS R9 380 4GB, for the first time we see an affordable 4GB gaming solution, a 4GB gaming GPU that runs $229.99 (NewEgg). Face it, games and gaming resolutions memory demands are exploding exponentially. It takes 2GB GRRD5 to do a good job running 1080p, 4 GB will get you 2560 x 1440 (1440P) and some 4k games using reasonable settings. The amount of GDDR5 on your GPU is the going currency for what resolution and settings you can game at. While 1080p still is the most popular resolution for gamers, at least for Steam Users (Steam Hardware Survey June 2015) there is no doubt that as the price comes down on 1440p-monitors and to some extend the new more affordable 4k-monitors, gaming at 1440p and higher will become more popular. 1440p in many cases needs 4 GB of high-speed GDDR5 to minimize stuttering and maintain higher framerates.

Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! Graphics
     Thu, Jul 30 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past couple of years Zotac has really distinguished themselves as a producer of high-end NVIDIA-based graphics cards. They offer some of the highest-clocked and best looking cards available. For those who did not jump on NVIDIA’s Titan X when it was first released now you have the choice of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which offers similar performance, will half the VRAM. Since the card has been out for a little while now we have seen many custom designs and today we will be taking a look at one such card from Zotac. On the test bench today is their GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! (ZT-90503-10P) graphics card. This card comes with a factory overclock of 1051 MHz base and 1140 MHz GPU Boost. On top of that this is one of the more sleek cards we have reviewed lately with its triple-fan carbon-fiber cooling solution and stylish backplate. Let’s see what this card is all about!"

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 WindForce 3X OC 4GB Graphics
     Wed, Jul 29 2015 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Graphics cards have been the alpha and the omega for gamers all around the world since the mid 90's when the first really "serious" game titles made their appearance on the PC (titles like Mech Warrior, Tomb Raider, Phantasmagoria, Tex Murphy and Wing Commander 3). Back then of course things were a lot simpler compared to now since gamers only had a handful of cards to choose from by manufacturers like NVIDIA (Riva 128/TNT/GeForce), 3DFX (Voodoo), Matrox (Millennium/Mystique) and ATI (3D Rage/Rage Pro) and the one thing everyone cared most was compatibility with games rather than performance (something which continued for many years to come). NVIDIA and ATI/AMD cards have dominated the market for the past 14 years and today in the market gamers can find the 18th line to carry the name GeForce (10th generation GPU) and the 23rd line to carry the name Radeon (if I’m not mistaken) so it's easy to see how much things have advanced compared to back then. We haven't had a graphics card review on NikKTech for a long time but when we were asked to test one of the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970's to hit the market and more specifically the WindForce 3X OC by GIGABYTE we simply couldn't refuse.

HIS Radeon R9 390 IceQ X2 OC 8GB Video Card Review
     Wed, Jul 29 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The technology incorporated inside the R9 390 GPU is not new but is based on the Hawaii (now baptized Grenada), with the same shader count, texture units, ROPs and so on. The manufacturing process is also still 28nm but there are minor improvements which allow running the card at higher speeds and the memory quantity has been doubled, from 4GB to 8GB. Since the HIS R9 390 IceQ X2 is marketed as a pre-overclocked card, the GPU clocked has been raised to 1020MHz instead of 1000MHz stock, while the memory clock remains the same as the OEM AMD cards.
