     Tue, Sep 30 2014 | 8:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Built around the 28nm Cape Verde PRO GPU, the XFX R7 250E Core Edition comes with 512 Unified Shaders, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. In terms of memory, we got 1GB of GDDR5 clocked at 1125MHz on a 128-bit bus for a total bandwidth of 72GB/s."

XFX R7 250E
     Tue, Sep 30 2014 | 8:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When you look purely at the gaming performance numbers, it's hard to really think of this card as a gaming performance card with the eye candy turned up. If you are buying this card to play the latest FPS games maxed out at 60 FPS, you will be disappointed. However, when you go to play in the wheel house it fits in, you can get performance up and over the commonly recognized 30 FPS threshold for playable performance at 1920x1080, or even higher at 1680x1050. When you get down to its DNA, this card has its roots in the 2012 release of AMD's Cape Verde Pro GCN architecture and is comparable to the HD 7750 seen at that time. Where you can really beef up performance is by connecting the XFX R7 250E into an AMD APU system and running a hybrid CrossFire configuration, which would drive performance up when needed and spools down the power consumption when you do not need the 3D GPU horsepower. In that respect, the XFX R7 250E has a lot to offer for a minimal financial impact.”

Sapphire Radeon R9 285 Dual-X OC Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Sep 28 2014 | 11:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD recently announced their Radeon R9 285 graphics card, this was their first major graphics card announcement since the R9 295X2 back in April. Looking at the naming of the card we expect it to be a replacement for the R9 280, but is it really? It has the same number of shaders, TMUs, and ROPs as the R9 280, but has a narrower memory bus at 256bit (vs 364bit of R9 280X) and less VRAM (2 GB vs 3 GB), although that memory is clocked higher (5.5 GHz vs 5.0 GHz). Looking at the specifications you may be wondering what what is the point? Well unlike the R9 280 which is built on AMDs Tahiti silicon, the R9 285 is built on the brand new Tonga silicon. While it is still based on the same 28 nm process Tonga is said to be more efficient and also adds many of the features that we saw on the Hawaii silicon like XDMA CrossFire (no more CrossFire connectors), TrueAudio DSP, and the ability to connect 4 displays using all output connectors on the card. Today we are taking a look at Sapphires Radeon R9 285 Dual-X OC version of the card. It will feature a slight overclock on the core clock (965 MHz vs 918 MHz) and the memory (1400 MHz vs 1375 MHz). It will also have Sapphires Dual-X cooling solution which seems to be extremely quiet. Lets jump in and see what this card can do."

ASUS GeForce GTX 980 STRIX Review @ ocaholic
     Sat, Sep 27 2014 | 8:34A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As expected ASUS is also amongst NVIDIA`s launch partners for their new Maxwell based graphics cards. In this review we`re having a close look at the GTX 980 STRIX, which is ASUS`s flagship model for now. Therefore it features a custom PCB as well as ASUS`s semi-passive STRIX cooler. This should be a rather punch combination and we`re curious to learn more about this card."

On September 18th, NVIDIA launched the brand new GTX 980 and GTX 970 to PC gaming fans at their GAME24 event. The very next day, GPUS from both ASUS and ZOTAC (and more) hit the shelves. Even system builders like iBUYPOWER were ready with stock on hand to build your latest GTX 900 series system. And now weve got one too and were running NVIDIAs latest GTX 980 through its paces."

PowerColor R9 285 Turbo Duo
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”After settling on a 1075MHz clock speed for the core I moved on to the memory and used the same strategy before fine tuning the result at 1511MHz. Overall the boost in core clock speed over the 945MHz factory clock speed was 130MHz on the core or roughly 13% worth of free clock speed. The Elpida GDDR5 memory ICs gave up just under 10% more clock speed or 136MHz. These are not stellar numbers, but 10%+ bumps in overall clock speed will give you that extra few FPS that may make 2560x1440 gaming that much more enjoyable.”

R9 285 TurboDuo featuring 2GB GDDR5 memory
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD introduces its Tonga core GPU with the new Radeon R9 285, a card that picks up the battle for the $250 MSRP price segment from the R9 280, with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 760 being the main target. Tonga is a potluck of features that span across various iterations of AMD architecture, including Mantle API support, CrossFire XDMA technology, TrueAudio, PowerTune, and project FreeSync. We review PowerColor's version of the card, the R9 285 TurboDuo featuring 2GB GDDR5 memory and a 945/1375 (5500 effective) MHz core/memory factory overclock, complete with a custom dual-fan cooling solution that promises increased performance with lower heat and noise levels.

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.
