Asus GTX780 Ti ROG Matrix Review
     Fri, Aug 28 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we follow on from our recent analysis of the remarkable ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q 144hz G-Sync monitor and focus on the partner card for that review – the Asus GTX780 Ti ROG Matrix. ASUS claim this card is created around ‘hand chosen cores’ to ensure the highest levels of performance. Asus use a sophisticated 14 phase power system, with digital voltage regulation and the highest grade Japanese made 10k black metallic capacitors. The GTX780 Ti ROG Matrix is supplied in a highly overclocked state, but can it justify the equally high £649.99 asking price?

Radeon R9 Fury cards:
     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One question we haven't answered decisively in our recent series of graphics card reviews is: how much video memory is enough? More pressingly given the 4GB limit for Radeon R9 Fury cards: how much is too little?

     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 1:16P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"NVIDIA's Maxwell core has so far been a predictable overclocker, delivering speeds from 1400MHz on up and over 1500MHz in some cases. In this case, the Maxwell core in this card was able to run a GPU Boost clock speed of 1491MHz by setting the power limit to 125% and bumping the voltage up by +39mv. The memory speed boost was significant as well with a final result of 1969MHz. Your mileage may vary, of course. All in all, PNY left some meat on the bone for the enthusiast gamer.”

MSI GeForce GTX 950 Gaming 2 GB
     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 1:15P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GeForce GTX 950 Gaming comes with the company's famous TwinFrozr dual-fan cooling solution, which provides quieter than whisper-quiet noise levels in gaming, and completely turns off the fans in idle. The card is also rather affordable with just a $10 price premium.

GTX 780 Ti vs R9 290X
     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 1:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After almost two years on the market, we have decided to re-benchmark the performance of two GPUs: the R9 290X and GTX 780 Ti. Both have been at the center of controversy but where do they stand now?

Asus R7 370 Strix 4GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 1:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So last week was basically all about budget gaming with our first R7 370 review as well as the launch of the GTX 950. Well this week isn’t going to be any different. Today I’m going to take a look at another R7 370, this time the Asus Strix 4GB model. This gives us a chance to compare the Sapphire that I previously took a look and find out how the cards compare. It also is a good chance to see where the R7 370 sits now that the GTX 950 is out. To sit back and I’m going to see what the Asus R7 370 Strix 4GB has going on and then how it performs.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card Review
     Tue, Aug 25 2015 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week during Computex 2015, NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti features 2816 NVIDIA CUDA cores and 6 GB of GDDR5 memory with a price tag of $649.99. For a limited time gamers will also get Batman: Arkham Knight with the purchase of a GeForce GTX 980. That price tag might be more than some are willing to pay, but you’ll soon learn that is shares many key features with the GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB graphics card all while costing $350 less than NVIDIA’s most expensive desktop gaming graphics card solution. Read on to find out more!

The NVIDIA GPUs Delivering The Best Performance Per Watt
     Mon, Aug 24 2015 | 1:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Following last week's NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 launch I took the current complete NVIDIA desktop line-up of Maxwell GPUs and ran a second set of Linux OpenGL gaming tests on each of them while this time looking closely at the performance-per-dollar and performance-per-Watt performance. Here's the look at these NVIDIA Linux results if you're wanting to find the graphics processor delivering the best value as a Linux gamer."

MOBA Gaming Performance - Is The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950
     Mon, Aug 24 2015 | 1:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up against my trusty four-year-old HD 6950 1GB is NVIDIA’s spanking brand-new GTX 950 2GB. This is what happens when I ask the editor-in-chief to do an extensive MOBA game performance analysis and instead it comes around back to me years later. Whatever. I’m happy because not only do I have a new video card, I also get to do graphics performance tests on the games I play the most.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 2GB Video Card Review
     Mon, Aug 24 2015 | 1:09P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA today launched their latest mainstream graphics card, the GeForce GTX 950, which features a suggested retail price of $159 and uses the GM206 Maxwell GPU. That GPU might sound familiar to those that keep up with the graphics card market as it is the same exact GPU that NVIDIA is using on the GeForce GTX 960 ($199). NVIDIA disabled some things to help differentiate this card from the GeForce GTX 960 and was able to bring it to market at a lower price point...

Intel Skylake HD Graphics 530 Performance On Linux
     Fri, Aug 21 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Core i5 6600K and i7 6700K processors released earlier this month feature HD Graphics 530 as the first Skylake graphics processor. Given that Intel's Open-Source Technology Center has been working on open-source Linux graphics driver support for over a year for Skylake, I've been quite excited to see how the Linux performance compares for Haswell and Broadwell as well as AMD's APUs on Linux. In this article is the first of these OpenGL benchmarks comparing the Core i5 6600K to other offerings from Intel and AMD."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming G1 6GB Review
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:38P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As expected Gigabyte is also amongst NVIDIA's launch partners for their new GTX 980 Ti based graphics cards. In this review we're having a close look at the GTX 980 Ti Gaming G1, which is Gigabyte's flagship model. It features a custom PCB as well as a new version of Gigabyte's semi-passive Windforce 3X cooler. This should be a rather punchy combination, since the card has also received a massive factory overclock.

Asus, MSI, EVGA GTX 950 Video Cards
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:37P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Regardless of base core clock, when run within the confines of the power limit and thermal profile, the GTX 950s are boosting on their own to over 1400MHz on the core to push that performance envelope. Manual overclocking allows the end user to push a bit harder and I was able to hit GPU Boost speeds of 1551MHz on the EVGA SSC, 1538MHz on the MSI Gaming, and 1569MHz on the ASUS Strix. Overclocking of the 2GB of GDDR5 memory on each card was just as fruitful, with speeds in excess of 1855MHz on each of the three cards."

NVIDIA GTX 950 graphics card
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:37P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Priced at just $159, NVIDIA's new GTX 950 looks like a great deal but with AMD's R7 370 priced lower and the GTX 960 just $40 more, can its performance meet expectations?
