NVIDIA Unveils Tegra X1 Powered Drive CX and PX Intelligent
     Thu, Jan 29 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today NVIDIA unveiled its upcoming Tegra X1 system on a chip (SoC) and a few automotive computer systems leveraging the X1. The Tegra X1 is a significant departure from the previous-gen Tegra K1 in that it features a 256-core Maxwell-derived GPU and eight CPU cores; four ARM A57 cores and four A53s in a big.LITTLE configuration. NVIDIA claims the Tegra X1 offers up to 2x the performance of the Tegra K1 in a similar power envelope, thanks to improved efficiency in the CPU and GPU cores and the chip’s more advanced 20nm manufacturing process. In addition to the Tegra X1 itself, NVIDIA also announced some new automotive computing platforms, the NVIDIA Drive CX Digital Cockpit Computer and Drive PX Auto-Pilot Platform, along with the Drive Studio software suite for developing in-car infotainment and autonomous driving systems based on Tegra X1...

News: Nvidia admits explains GeForce GTX 970 memory allocation issue
     Thu, Jan 29 2015 | 10:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve been tracking an issue with GeForce GTX 970 memory use for a little while now, most notably via a thread in our forums. Some GeForce GTX 970 owners have noticed unusual behavior from these cards compared to the GTX 980. Specifically, the GTX 970 sometimes appears to allocate less than its full 4GB of memory in cases where the GTX 980 does. Also, when asked to go beyond 3.5GB using a directed test, GTX 970 memory bandwidth appears to drop. Nvidia has been looking into the issue and has now issued the following statement:"

Hands On With NVIDIA Tegra X1 With Benchmarks and Video
     Wed, Jan 28 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the last few years, NVIDIA has used the lead-up to the Consumer Electronics Show to announce new Tegra-related products and technologies. This year is no different. Earlier today, we got together with representatives from NVIDIA to talk about the company’s upcoming Tegra X1 system on a chip (SoC) and see the reference platform in action, running a variety of benchmarks and demos. At last year’s CES, NVIDIA announced the Tegra K1 featuring a Kepler-derived GPU, which has since found its way into the excellent SHIELD Tablet, Google’s Project Tango device, and the Nexus 9. The Tegra K1 proved to be a strong performer, in both its quad-core 32-bit and dual-core 64-bit configurations, and the 192-core Kepler-class GPU was a clear leader in the space. The Tegra X1, however, is a significant departure from the K1 in that it features a Maxwell-derived GPU and eight CPU cores; four ARM A57 cores and four A53s in a big.LITTLE configuration...

Posted by: STAFF
After taking half a decade's worth of DirectX 11-capable GeForce graphics cards, it's time to look at things from the opposite side as we compare five generations of Radeon cards with the latest Catalyst driver to see when and where AMD has made its biggest performance leaps and which GPUs have aged the best.

Another dragon flies ashore! MSI`s high-end Intel Z97 motherboard, the MSI Z97 GAMING 9 AC, swoops down onto my testbench after a long trip to me. The MSI Z97 GAMING 9 AC is MSI`s answer for the ultra-dollar gamer, but does it breathe fire or just puff smoke out its nose?"

22-Way AMD+NVIDIA Graphics Card Tests
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days back I wrote about being able to finally get the Metro Redux game benchmarks running in an automated manner under Linux to the point that we're now able to test it with the Phoronix Test Suite. With Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux now running well for our testing purposes, I've carried out performance tests of these two games with twenty-two AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards on Linux. Besides looking at the normal FPS result there's also frame latency metrics, power consumption data for each of these graphics cards, performance-per-Watt metrics, and GPU thermal results. If you're wondering what graphics card works best for your needs for OpenGL 4.x Linux gaming, here's an interesting look with the Metro Redux titles that premiered on Steam for Linux back in December."

the GeForce GTX 960
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 2:45P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last Thursday, Nvidia introduced their GeForce GTX 960, and with it, the world's first graphics card that supports HDMI 2.0 and comes equipped with a hardware-based H.265 (or HEVC) video decoder. As such, this graphics card would be the ideal GPU for a future proof HTPC, at least in theory. We investigated whether it holds up in practice.

NVIDIA Discloses Full Memory Structure and Limitations of GTX 970
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 1:15P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lets be clear the performance of the GTX 970 is what the performance is. This information is incredibly interesting and warrants some debate, but at the end of the day, my recommendations for the GTX 970 really wont change at all. It still offers incredible performance for your dollar and is able to run at 4K in my experience and testing. Yes, there might in fact be specific instances where performance drops are more severe because of this memory hierarchy design, but I dont think it changes the outlook for the card as a whole."

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HardwareOverlock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0 Videocard. This enhanced model offers improved cooling, double BIOS support, new display output configuration and 6 power phases for robust overclocking support. These new cards also feature EVGA ACX 2.0 cooling that features optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor. The EVGA ACX 2.0 cooler offers more air flow, with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU.

NVIDIA Multi-Frame Sampled AA Video Card Review
     Fri, Jan 23 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA) technology is available in the latest GeForce driver release. We look at performance and image quality on the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 and see if this is something gamers can benefit from. Only a handful of games support it right now, if yours is on the list, give it a spin.

Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970 & GTX 980
     Fri, Jan 23 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So in terms of power consumption the GeForce GTX 980 is unbeatable right now but only slightly better than its predecessor. The question is, how many gamers want to pay a price premium to save up to 25% power when gaming compared to the Radeon R9 290X? We suspect not many. Still, the power savings have other advantages such as cooler running GPUs which can lead to better overclocking GPUs. The 600w WindForce cooler found on the G1 Gaming GTX 980 kept the card at 57 degrees under load, which allowed us to achieve a 17% core overclock netting around 10% more performance.

Gainward GTX 980 & GTX 970 Phantom
     Fri, Jan 23 2015 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the Gainward GTX 970 Phantom is the card that has impressed us the most. Gainward has opted for a shorter PCB making the GTX 970 more compact than most despite the triple slot design. Those running mATX systems will find the GTX 970 Phantom the ideal graphics card for extracting the most performance out of their gaming rig.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Review With EVGA And ASUS
     Thu, Jan 22 2015 | 2:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To date, NVIDIA has introduced only a couple of Maxwell-based desktop GPUs. Back in September, the company launched the powerful and potent GeForce GTX 980 (and its little brother, the GeForce GTX 970), featuring the GM204. The GM204 is currently NVIDIA’s fastest single-GPU, though a larger “big” Maxwell-based chip akin to the GK110 powering cards like the GeForce GTX Titan, will likely be introduced at some point as well. Looking even further back, we first got a glimpse of Maxwell on the diminutive GeForce GTX 750 Ti. That card was based on the GM107 GPU, a smaller Maxwell variant, that targets low-power and mainstream applications.

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.
