Zotac NVIDIA GTX 980 Ti 6GB Graphics Card Review
     Sun, Jul 05 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another GM20x chip variation and slots in just below the Titan X, the GTX 980 Ti confirms rumours that Nvidia were planning something to fill the gap between the GTX 980 and the Titan X, the latter being out of most normal gamers price range."

Gigabyte G1 Gaming Geforce GTX 980 Ti Review
     Sun, Jul 05 2015 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are all these extras enough to raise the Gigabyte G1 Gaming GeForce GTX 980 Ti video card to the top of your list? At a price point of $689.00 USD and one of the highest factory overclocks (with Super OC) it quite possibly could be."

Sapphire R9 390 Nitro 8GB Review
     Sat, Jul 04 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we look at a sub £300 graphics card from AMD partner Sapphire. The R9 390 Nitro is a model from Sapphire’s new range and features Black Diamond Chokes and a large triple fan cooler to keep temperatures in check. The card ships in an overclocked state and is priced to compete against the popular Nvidia GTX970.

MSI R9 380 Gaming 4G Review
     Sat, Jul 04 2015 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we’re looking at our first card in the AMD launch of the 300-series graphics cards: the MSI R9 380 Gaming 4G. It’s a card that boasts a custom heatsink, improved power design, and a factory overclock for the discerning gamer who is on a mid-range budget. Factor in that AMD is bringing a few new features to the market with the R9 300 series launch, and we’re cautiously optimistic for strong gaming value.”

PowerColor PCS+ R9 380 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jul 04 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So last week we had our first peak at the kind of new R9 380. Well it just so happens that card was only a 2GB model. Lucky for us PowerColor sent over their PCS+ R9 380 and it has a 4GB frame buffer. So today I’m going to check out the card from PowerColor and see what they have going on and along with that we can see if having the additional frame buffer is worth it in our benchmark suite. With these cards not exactly being focused towards higher resolution gameplay I’m not sure if we will see too much at 1080p but given the 1440p numbers we saw before I bet we see some improvement there!

AMD R9 Fury X 4GB Graphics Card Crossfire Review
     Fri, Jul 03 2015 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at eTeknix, we strive to give the consumer the best possible advice in every aspect of technology. Today is no different, we are extremely excited to bring you the CrossFireX review of the recently released AMD Radeon R9 Fury X. As we all know, the R9 Fury X is AMD’s latest attempt to take the crown from NVIDIA in the top end consumer GPU market. In some ways, AMD has succeeded, thanks to the introduction of a new GPU architecture and the innovative High Bandwidth Memory (HBM). With the use of HBM, it has been proven that the quantity of VRAM isn’t the issue, it is the quality of the connection and bandwidth allowance for the VRAM to do its work; although more VRAM certainly couldn’t hurt.

XFX Radeon R9 390X 8Gb Dual Dissipation Black Edition Graphics
     Fri, Jul 03 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We recently reviewed the Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X Tri-X in preparation for the AMD Radeon R9 300 Series release and to be honest, we were a little underwhelmed by the card. Still a strong contender in the high end graphics market but in the shadow of the GTX970 from Nvidia, not to mention the GTX980 or GTX980 Ti. So a couple of days ago we tuned into the live broadcast and we got a sense of excitement from the event, it seems like AMD are really proud of the R9 300 Series release and the supporting product ranges they launched on that day."

AMD lineup of 300-series cards
     Thu, Jul 02 2015 | 6:49P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hope you’re enjoying weather as marvelous as we’re currently experiencing here in the Netherlands, but if not, at least we have some reading material for you. And if it’s too hot to read, rest assured: most of this article is graphs and benchmarks. We tested most of the ‘new’ AMD lineup of 300-series cards. To be precise: R7 370 2GB and 4GB, R9 380 2GB and 4GB, R9 390 and 390X. Of course we compared the performance against all relevant current Nvidia cards and we did this with 12 games plus 3D Mark Fire Strike, in 2 quality settings and in 3 different resolutions. Two things are particularly interesting: the performance of the R9 390 (non-X) versus ye olde & mightye GeForce GTX 970 and wether the 4GB of graphics memory on select versions of the R7 370 and the R9 380 makes any sense at all (spoiler: it does not).

AMD R9 Fury X graphics card
     Thu, Jul 02 2015 | 12:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's R9 Fury X has been rumored, leaked, previewed and now finally benchmarked. There are some high expectations placed on its shoulders but is there enough performance to overcome NVIDIA's GTX 980 Ti?

Posted by: STAFF
MSI fit the card with its new TwinFrozrV cooling solution and Military Class 4 components, which is very nice thing to see at the $159.99 MSRP price point. The MSI R7 370 Gaming 2G comes with 1024 Stream processors across 16 compute units, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. In terms of memory, we got 2GB GDDR5 running at 1425MHz on a 256-bit interface for a total 182.4 GB/s bandwidth. Seems pretty familiar isn't it? We are basically looking at the successor of the Radeon 7850 and R7 265, with a bump in the core clocks and memory."

Inno3D GTX 980 'iChill Herculez X4 Air Boss Ultra' Review
     Wed, Jul 01 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Got some spare cash to upgrade that weak old graphics card? If you have £500 burning a hole in your bank account then the Nvidia GTX980 is the first choice on our list. KitGuru has already looked at custom partner cards from MSI, ASUS and Palit but today we look at something very special indeed. The Inno3D GTX980 iChill Herculez X4 Air Boss Ultra is without a doubt one of the most hardcore graphics cards to grace our labs – featuring a scary looking four fan heatsink, and crazy ‘out of the box’ clock speeds. This is not one for the faint of heart.

MSI GTX980 Gaming 4G Review
     Wed, Jul 01 2015 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the Nvidia GTX970 and GTX980 launch last month, we have looked at a wide cross section of partner solutions. Today we review the MSI GTX980 Gaming 4G – the big brother of the formidable MSI GTX970 Gaming 4G, which we reviewed back on September 19th. Should you be treating yourself to an MSI GTX980 upgrade before the end of the year?

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K 2QE Review (Gold w/ GTX970m)
     Wed, Jul 01 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking for a gaming laptop with Nvidia’s latest Maxwell architecture then our review today of the new MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K 2QE will interest you. This machine features the GTX970m mobile GPU, alongside Raid SSD’s, an Intel Core i7 quad core processor, 3K screen, 16GB of DDR3 memory and a rather fancy limited edition gold chassis. All well and good, but is it worth the £1,799 asking price? Kitguru take you on a guided tour.

NVIDIA rings in its Game24 celebration
     Sun, Jun 28 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA rings in its Game24 celebration of PC gaming with the new GeForce GTX 980 and 970. While similar to the GTX 700 series reference cards in appearance, these new cards boast nothing less than the most powerful implementation of NVIDIA's Maxwell GPU architecture yet. We had the chance to test drive the GTX 980, featuring a 1126/1216 MHz core/boost clocks, 4GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 1750 MHz on a 256-bit bus, 2MB L2 cache, 128 Texture Mapping Units and 64 Raster Operating Units. Despite having a lower transistor count than the GTX 780 Ti, the GTX 980 actually promises even better performance at a lower TDP of 165W, complete with potentially exciting new graphic features like Voxel Global Illumination technology, Super Resolution, and Multi-Frame sampled AA.

Nvidia vs. AMD at Every Price Point
     Fri, Jun 26 2015 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been an eventful year for GPU releases with updated models and prices across all budgets from both AMD and Nvidia. With no more releases from either camp for the remainder of the year the competition will likely center on price. That's exciting news for those of you who have a shiny new GPU at the top of your Christmas list. Let's break down each price bracket to determine which company offers the best value product.

Gaming at 4K: Gainward GeForce GTX 970 SLI Performance
     Fri, Jun 26 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia's GeForce GTX 970 positioned itself it as an ideal candidate for multi-GPU 4K gaming by outperforming the Radeon R9 290 while undercutting its price too. As expected, AMD was quick to respond with price cuts, which means folks looking to game at 4K have some capable multi-GPU options for as little as $600 to $660.
