 [LATEST]  ASUS GTX 980 Ti STRIX Gaming 6 GB
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 1:37A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new ASUS GTX 980 Ti STRIX delivers the highest performance of all GTX 980 Ti cards we tested so far, thanks to a large overclock and increased Boost Clock range. The DirectCU III triple slot cooler turns off its fans in idle, media playback and light gaming. Price-wise the card clocks in at $670, similar to other custom GTX 980 Ti cards.

Sapphire Tri-X R9 Fury 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Jul 27 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Something that we don’t really get much of a buzz from is the ‘second best’ graphics card, Okay the R9 390 is good, but we all want to know about the R9 390X; so why has the hype kept momentum even after the R9 Fury X launch, ready for the R9 Fury? The main reason is likely the fact that it’s water cooled from the factory, even though most people want water cooling, it can be problematic or even just too large to fit inside some cases. Those who held off buying the Fury X are now in for a treat thanks to AMD allowing sub-vendors the ability to customise the R9 Fury.

Sapphire Tri-X R9 390X Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Jul 27 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Sapphire is AMD’s larger board partner so as expected that have a pretty nice selection of AMD’s 300 series graphics cards. Sitting at the top of the 300 series is the Radeon R9 390X. This is of course a rebrand of AMD’s previous R9 290X, but with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. Also the rebrand has given AMD time to fine-tune the chip and add new features. This card is 100% DirectX 12 compliant and has AMD specific features like FreeSync, Super Virtual Resolution, and Eyefinity. Sapphire’s take on the card brings with it their Tri-X cooling solution that uses Intelligent Fan Control II technology that will turn the fans off when the GPU is not running hot and a massive 10mm heatpipe to keep things cool, 16K hours capacitors to lengthen the lifespan of the card, a dual BIOS, and the card is of course factory overclocked. Let’s jump in and see what this card can do!"

Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC Review
     Sun, Jul 26 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD tried something daring with the Fury X, HBM, heavily compacted PCB design and an AIO cooler. The card is pretty cutting edge and the first of a new generation of designs and technologies centred on shacking off old news such as GDDR5. The launch of the Radeon Fury X caused a lot of stir across the internet, not only because of AMDs balls to push innovation, but because the cards are also in short supply, with some review samples, including our own, having some issues."

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 WindForce 3X OC 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Fri, Jul 24 2015 | 1:20P | 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.

AMD R9 Fury X CrossfireX 12K Eyefinity Review
     Fri, Jul 24 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Triple monitor configurations were massively useful a few years ago when the ‘new’ standard was 1080p and everyone wanted to have huge workspaces to process more information at once. While this was good back then, nowadays monitors can have up to 4x the resolution of 1080p in the form of 4K (2160p) and workers can fit a huge amount of information onto a single monitor.

Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC Video Card Review
     Thu, Jul 23 2015 | 12:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X video card that is powered by the Fiji GPU was revealed to the world in June 2015 we were promised by AMD that the less powerful, but more affordable AMD Radeon R9 Fury video card would be coming. Reviewing the flagship AMD Radeon R9 Fury X 4GB HBM memory card showed that AMD was able to catch back up to NVIDIA, but not everyone wants or can afford a $649 water cooled graphics cards for their gaming PC. The new AMD Radeon R9 Fury video card is basically a cut down version of the Fury X with slightly lower core clock speeds and air cooling for a suggested retail price of $549. Our friends over at Sapphire hooked us up with the Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC video card for this launch. Read on to see how it performs!

Pump Whine Silent Mod: The world's quietest Radeon R9 Fury X
     Thu, Jul 23 2015 | 12:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Pumpenfiepen-Silentmod: The quietest Radeon R9 Fury X World At this point, already mentioned and also observed outside the 3DCenters was the work of the Board Mods "andill" on its Radeon X Fury in researching the origin of Pumpenfiepens the map and a possible removal by hardware modifications to the cooling structure. That project has now a certain conclusion found in consequence the Pumpenfiepen is no longer perceptible in a closed and under the table housing - and could be quantified by measurement as clearly lower: With housing, the measured value was on the ~ 2 kHz lying Pumpenfiepen sound is temporarily at -49 dB on delivery - after the renovation there were -62 dB at this measuring point, a noise reduction of more than half (in dB values ??is that 10 dB more correspond to a doubling of the "perceived loudness" ). The rest of the sound strain curve looks much better - always remember that it is the same card with the same cooling design, which has been modified only in their assembly:

Sapphire Tri-X Radeon R9 Fury 4GB
     Thu, Jul 23 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at AMD’s second graphics card based on the 28nm ‘Fiji’ Silicon. The Sapphire Fury card is the first to hit our labs, and it features a new version of their highly acclaimed ‘Tri-X’ cooling solution. To reduce the retail price against Fury X – the new (non X) Fury model ditches the all in one liquid cooler and has 56 of the 64 compute units on the silicon enabled to yield a total of 3,584 stream processors. At around £445 inc vat it is priced almost identically to rival GTX980 solutions – but can it compete?

HIS Radeon R9 390X IceQ X2 OC 8GB Video Card Review
     Wed, Jul 22 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are indeed dealing with a refresh of the previous Hawaii XT GPU now baptized Grenada XT, featuring GCN 1.1, 6200 million transistors, 2816 shading units, 176 TMUs, 64ROPs and 44 Compute Units. The available VRAM is now 8GB instead of 4GB GDDR5 and now runs at higher frequencies than on 290X cards by default (1500MHz, 6000MHz effective); this surely helps when running multiple cards for a CrossFireX setup and using multiple monitors. Speaking of the frequencies, the defaults of the GPU on OEM cards have been raised to 1050MHz and with its pre-overclocked card HIS has added extra 20MHz.

Today we take a look at the second Fury card to hit our labs, the Asus Radeon R9 Fury Strix. This card ships with the latest Asus DirectCU III cooler and a very modest overclock, activated directly via ASUS GPU Tweak 2 software. I was impressed with the Sapphire Tri-X R9 Fury when I tested it last week, so we will see today if Asus are able to bat at the same level.

AMD Radeon R9 Fury Review: Fiji On Air Tested
     Wed, Jul 22 2015 | 1:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When AMD launched the liquid-cooled Radeon Fury X, we witnessed a company willing to commit to new architecture and bleeding edge technologies (Fiji and High-Bandwidth Memory, respectively). Beyond that, Fury X showed a level of ambition and hardware design chops we hadn’t seen from AMD in years. There’s no denying that between its exceptional thermals and strong performance, Fury X is a force to be reckoned with. However, it fell shy of the mark that enthusiasts and press hoped it would achieve, unable to quite deliver a definitive victory against NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Today, AMD offers up their Radeon R9 Fury (sometimes referred to as Fury Air or Fury Pro), a video card that brings a compelling value proposition to the table. In truth, this is the Fury release that should give AMD a more competitive edge against NVIDIA in the $500+ graphics card bracket...

Pump Whine Silent Mod: The world's quietest Radeon R9 Fury X
     Wed, Jul 22 2015 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
An dieser Stelle schon einmal erwähnt und auch außerhalb des 3DCenters beachtet wurde die Arbeit des Foren-Mods "andill" an seiner Radeon Fury X in Erforschung der Herkunft des Pumpenfiepens der Karte und einer möglichen Beseitigung durch Hardware-Modifikationen an deren Kühlkonstruktion. Jenes Vorhaben hat nun einen gewissen Abschluß gefunden, in Folge dessen das Pumpenfiepen in einem geschlossenen und unter dem Tisch stehenden Gehäuse nicht mehr wahrnehmbar ist – und auch meßtechnisch als klar niedriger quantifiziert werden konnte: Mit Gehäuse lag der Meßwert beim auf ~2 kHz liegenden Pumpenfiepen-Geräusch bei -49 dB im Auslieferungszustand – nach den Umbaumaßnahmen waren es noch -62 dB an dieser Meßstelle, eine Geräusch-Verringerung um mehr als die Hälfte (bei dB-Werten gilt, daß 10 dB mehr einer Verdopplung der "empfundenen Lautheit" entsprechen). Auch der Rest der Geräuschbelastungs-Kurve sieht deutlich besser aus – immer eingedenk, daß es sich um dieselbe Karte mit derselben Kühlkonstruktion handelt, welche nur in ihrem Zusammenbau modifiziert wurde:
