NVIDIA rings in its Game24 celebration
     Sun, Jun 28 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA rings in its Game24 celebration of PC gaming with the new GeForce GTX 980 and 970. While similar to the GTX 700 series reference cards in appearance, these new cards boast nothing less than the most powerful implementation of NVIDIA's Maxwell GPU architecture yet. We had the chance to test drive the GTX 980, featuring a 1126/1216 MHz core/boost clocks, 4GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 1750 MHz on a 256-bit bus, 2MB L2 cache, 128 Texture Mapping Units and 64 Raster Operating Units. Despite having a lower transistor count than the GTX 780 Ti, the GTX 980 actually promises even better performance at a lower TDP of 165W, complete with potentially exciting new graphic features like Voxel Global Illumination technology, Super Resolution, and Multi-Frame sampled AA.

     Fri, Jun 26 2015 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been an eventful year for GPU releases with updated models and prices across all budgets from both AMD and Nvidia. With no more releases from either camp for the remainder of the year the competition will likely center on price. That's exciting news for those of you who have a shiny new GPU at the top of your Christmas list. Let's break down each price bracket to determine which company offers the best value product.

Gaming at 4K: Gainward GeForce GTX 970 SLI Performance
     Fri, Jun 26 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 970 positioned itself it as an ideal candidate for multi-GPU 4K gaming by outperforming the Radeon R9 290 while undercutting its price too. As expected, AMD was quick to respond with price cuts, which means folks looking to game at 4K have some capable multi-GPU options for as little as $600 to $660.

Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS GTX 980 STRIX OC is the company's latest flagship, featuring completely passive operation in idle and light load, and an extremely quiet cooler during full-on gaming. The GTX 980 STRIX also impresses with its power consumption, which is lower than the NVIDIA reference card, while still delivering more performance.

ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Strix review: the first non-reference GTX 980
     Mon, Jun 22 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a hardware enthusiast, you will no doubt know that Nvidia introduced the GeForce GTX 980 and 970 a few weeks ago. Within our extensive review, we wrote that Nvidia let us know that all GeForce 980 boards initially available for purchase would simply be reference models. Nothing could be further from the truth, as ASUS was able to provide us with their GeForce GTX 980 Strix, a GTX 980 with a custom cooler and PCB design, just a week after the GTX 980's initial release. Is this video card a better choice than the reference model?

Sapphire R9 290X Vapor X 8GB CF Review
     Sun, Jun 21 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we finally get the chance to look at Sapphire’s R9 290X Vapor X 8GB graphics card. Prices of Ultra HD 4k screens may have dropped in price recently – but sadly this is only part of the overall cost. Driving smooth frames at 3,840×2,160 places a very intense demand on the system – particularly the graphics card. Even current generation cards such as Nvidia’s GTX980 struggle in single formation. Today’s article focuses on Sapphire’s new 290X 8GB Vapor X cards in Crossfire against a selection of other high end hardware running in Crossfire and SLI.

ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC Review - Silent But Deadly
     Tue, Jun 16 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When nVidia announced their 10th generation Maxwell architecture it was hotly anticipated and back in February we got to see the first GPUs based on it: the GM107 based 750 and 750 Ti. While those products offered much in terms of power efficiency, they were but a taste of what was to come. After months of waiting and delays, nVidia has finally released the first of its GTX 900 series based on the GM204 GPU core. – and today we have the pleasure of reviewing the ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC. We’ll start with an overview of the GPU and its cooler as well as the new features introduced with the 900 series and then it’s down to the nitty-gritty with some performance benchmarks and game tests.

Sapphire R9 285 2GB ITX Compact OC Edition Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Jun 15 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The popularity of compact graphics cards for small form factor systems has risen in recent years. This is mainly due to AMD and Nvidia making great strides in power and thermal efficiency which allows for more performance in smaller packages. The fact mini-ITX and micro-ATX cases have been popularised by a swath of releases from BitFenix, Corsair, Cooler Master and others also helped this trend. Before the release of Tonga AMD’s R9 270X was the fastest mini-ITX sized graphics card available while Nvidia’s GTX 760 was their fastest. With Tonga that’s set to change as we can now find much more AMD performance – in fact the R9 285 outpaces the GTX 760 so we should have a new mini-ITX graphics card winner on our hands.Sapphire’s ITX Compact OC Edition R9 285 is designed with small form factor users in mind measuring in at just 17.5 cm long yet still featuring a fully fledged R9 285 GPU with a 10 MHz factory overclock – not much but proof that Sapphire’s cooling solution has what it takes. Let’s take a detailed look at the key specifications:
