Sapphire R7 260X OC 1GB Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming on a strict budget has become easier in recent years as entry level offerings from AMD and Nvidia have become increasingly more affordable with increasingly more power. The $100 price point is a good example of this with the R7 250X, R7 260 and R7 260X all being around that level alongside Nvidia’s GT 740 and GTX 750. Today we are looking at Sapphire’s R7 260X OC 1GB graphics card which can be had for as little as $115~ and as we already know the R7 260X offers an incredible amount of performance for the money since AMD dropped the pricing on it. As we note with all our non-AMD and non-Nvidia graphics card review what we are looking for is what the vendors have done with AMD’s reference platform. Right off the bat we can see Sapphire have changed quite a few things with the R7 260X reference design, Sapphire have halved the GDDR5 memory to 1GB, equipped a custom cooler and downclocked the GPU and memory frequencies despite claiming this to be an “OC” GPU. As we can see in the specifications below this allows Sapphire to offer a more competitive price, but how good is the card’s performance with these modifications? It is worth noting Sapphire aren’t the only ones doing this, most other vendors offer R7 260Xs with frequencies between 1000 and 1100MHz and memory between 6000 and 6500MHz, finding ones with 1100/6500 or higher frequencies is more the exception than the norm, but they can be found.

Sapphire ITX Compact R9 285 OC
     Tue, Sep 16 2014 | 3:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Overclocking is a way to basically add free performance for added frame rates in games. Initially I thought this card would at best deliver a small overclock due to the work done to fit the TDP. However, I was wrong when I saw the clock speeds climb, finally reaching 1078MHz on the core and 1550MHz on the GDDR5 memory. These are boosts of over 10% from both the GPU and memory, which do indeed deliver additional performance, including a nice 700+ point boost in 3DMark's Fire Strike test. Not bad if you can get it. Overclocking is a way to improve you performance-to-cost ratio, and with this card, you do get that added value."

Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Sep 11 2014 | 11:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon R9 290 has been introduced quite a while back and thanks to Sapphire we`re finally having a look at the reference model. As you might already know, the card comes with a blower type cooler and clocked at 947 MHz on the GPU and 5`000 MHz for the memory. Overall we`re curious to see what kind of damage this card can do."

HIS R7 260X and R7 250X Review
     Tue, Sep 02 2014 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we’re focusing on two cards from HIS, a company we’re very familiar with, having seen many of their products in the past couple of generations in AMD cards. HIS typically produces cards with custom coolers and aggressive factory overclocks, but these two are a bit different. The R7 260X and R7 250X are budget-oriented cards for those with modest budgets and looking for some affordable gaming, and perhaps even something suitable for an HTPC setup.”

GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost vs. GTX 750 Ti - Should I upgrade? @ ocaholic
     Mon, Sep 01 2014 | 10:47A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to compare the two Mid-range nVidia cards: the GTX 750 Ti with Maxwell GPU and the nVidia GTX 650 Ti Boost Kepler GPU. The GTX 750 Ti is basically the first glimpse at NVIDIAs upcoming Maxwell GPUs and it will be quite interesting to see wether a lower end card from a new generation can keep up with a higher end card from the earlier generation."

"Priced at $119.99, the Sapphire R7 260X (100366-3L) video card hurts the wallet a lot less while aiming for high-quality 1080p gaming. As the largest AMD Radeon video card partner in the world, expectations are high from Sapphire to produce an R7 260X offering that aims to win the hearts of budget gaming enthusiasts."

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.
