Toshiba OCZ RD400 M.2 NVMe 512 GB Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the OCZ RD400, Toshiba launches an NVMe-SSD for end users. The drive which is lying front of us appears to perform extremely well pumping out up to 2600 MB/s sequentially reading and 1600 MB/s sequentially writing. This definitely makes us wonder how much of that horsepower is available in real life.[

A 16-Way Recap From NVIDIA's 9800 GTX
     Tue, May 24 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In preparing to hopefully test the GeForce GTX 1070/1080 "Pascal" graphics cards under Linux in the days ahead, I've been re-testing my collection of available NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards going back to the GeForce 9800GTX up through the Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 980 Ti and GTX TITAN X. Besides looking at the OpenGL performance at 1080p and 4K, I've also been recording the power metrics and performance-per-Watt data."

DOOM Benchmarked: Graphics & CPU Performance Tested
     Sun, May 22 2016 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Doom reboot is a gift to the PC Master Race. The 4K visuals are amazing, excellent high resolution textures cover every surface, the lighting and shadows are on point and this all comes together to make those glory kill animations look insane. The question that remains now is, what kind of hardware do you require to enjoy those glory kills in all of their gory glory?

NVIDIA Quadro M2000 Review: Affordable Maxwell Pro
     Fri, May 20 2016 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back, during its GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA announced a new Quadro-branded graphics card for the professional workstation market. That card is the Quadro M2000 we’ll be showing you here today. The Quadro M2000 is a low-power pro graphics solution featuring a GPU based on NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture. In fact, it’s the very same GPU used on one of the more mainstream GeForce GTX-branded cards. The M2000 has 768 CUDA cores and 4GB of GDDR5 memory, linked to the GPU via a 128-bit interface. If some of those specs sound familiar, it's because they're similar to the GeForce GTX 950. Both the Quadro M2000 and the GTX 950 are built around the GM206 GPU, though the Quadro has a few more tricks up its sleeve to be sure...

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Overclocking
     Wed, May 18 2016 | 12:37P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The best combination of results that I was able to run all of the game tests with came in at a GPU Boost 3.0 clock speed of 2050MHz on the Pascal core. In some game tests 2076MHz to 2088MHz was perfectly stable, but not in all games. This gives the end user about an extra 315MHz of headroom to play with that does indeed drive the performance to another level. Micron's GDDR5X memory also plays well when you start clocking it up. I was able to push the 8GB of GDDR5X memory to a data rate of 11Gbps. This final step again helps with memory bandwidth to get you that last bit of performance out of the GTX 1080. Having good architecture and a great power delivery system help improve performance across the board by allowing stable overclocking at high levels.”

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 was announced recently, today we have the first review! Performance is incredible, doubling GTX 970 performance levels. Efficiency is also sky high, nearly doubling everything what we've seen from NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture. Our GTX 1080 review compares 10 cards in 16 games at up to 4K resolution.

Nvidia GTX 1080 Graphics Card Review
     Tue, May 17 2016 | 3:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on the latest Pascal architecture, Nvidia claim the GTX 1080 is the most advanced graphics card ever made. The GTX 1080 is built on a new 16nm FinFET manufacturing process allowing the chip to incorporate more transistors – subsequently allowing for higher clock speeds and improved power efficiency. The GTX 1080 also adopts GDDR5X memory which enhances bandwidth significantly over previous GDDR5 designs. Is Nvidia’s GTX1080 the new GPU king?

NVIDIA's GTX 1080 and its GP104 core represents a giant leap forward for graphics processing and efficiency. If you are looking for performance, Pascal will deliver in spades!

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Review
     Tue, May 17 2016 | 3:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First to market with a true next generation GPU is Nvidia and this could very well be the biggest step in GPU technology we've seen in recent years. The new GeForce GTX 1080 is faster, built using the 16nm design process and packed with GDDR5X memory, it promises to put away the Titan X while consuming less power than the 980 Ti. We put this and other bold claims to the test.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders edition review
     Tue, May 17 2016 | 3:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The embargo has been lifted, we review the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders edition. The 8 GB based spawn of something evil is based in all new Pascal architecture and 16 nm FinFET has arrived. It's impressive, it's silent and it rocks hard when it comes to sheer performance. We'll test the card with the hottest new game titles based on DX12, DX11 and OpenGL.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition
     Tue, May 17 2016 | 3:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Looking at the performance delivered by NVIDIA's latest GPU architecture, it's hard not to like what I see during my performance testing. There is not a single test where the results over previous generations are not significant. And significant is not an exaggeration at this point in time. Depending on the game, I was not seeing the close to a two times uptick in performance over the GTX 980, but when you get down to it, the performance benefits of the GTX 1080 are never ending. It delivers smooth gameplay at every resolution from top to bottom and truly makes it fun to play at 4K resolutions without having to resort to using a pair of cards to get that FPS fix. To see it do it so effortlessly is a testament to the work that NVIDIA has done to ensure that we get the best cards for our money”
