ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II Review
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 1:34P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking on ASUS HD 7970 DirectCU II was fruitful, based on the fact that this card came with standard reference clock speeds of 925MHz on the core and 1375MHz on the 3GB of GDDR5 memory. By using ASUS GPU Tweak and other tools, I was able to reach overclocks of over 22% on the core and over 20% on the memory with the final clock speeds of 1134MHz and 1669MHz on the core and memory, respectively. These are pretty significant jumps from the baseline clock speeds and offered up significant bumps in performance. Not 20%+ on average, but significant, none the less."

"Today we’ll be reviewing one such mid range graphics card from our friends over at HIS, the HIS Radeon HD 7850 IceQ Turbo 2GB. Looking at the specs, the card is definitely promising. As its name suggests, it comes with a new revision of HIS’s custom IceQ cooler. We’ve had a couple run-ins with HIS’ IceQ cooling solutions in the past and we’ve generally come out very impressed with its cooling..."

VTX3D HD7990 Review (w/ GTX690 & 6GB HD7970 Toxic CF)
     Tue, Jan 01 2013 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at the VTX3D HD7990 Graphics card, a flagship product created by partners after AMD failed to deliver an official dual GPU product this year. The VTX3D HD7990 in particular has generated a lot of interest as it is the least expensive HD7990 in the UK today available at £679.99 inc vat, significantly cheaper than both Club3D and Powercolor models.

News: GeForce versus Radeon captured on high-speed video
     Mon, Dec 24 2012 | 9:32A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our recent article comparing the Radeon HD 7950 to the GeForce GTX 660 Ti in many of the season`s top new games has attracted some new attention to our latency-focused game testing methods. Some folks are skeptical about whether there`s added value to testing with any more granularity than an FPS average would provide. Others have wondered about whether the tool we`re using to grab frame time data, Fraps, really captures an accurate reflection of how frames are arriving at the display. There are some interesting questions to explored along those lines, but our intention has always been to illustrate the impact of high-latency frames on animation smoothness visually. And we can do that quite easily."

DarbeeVision Darblet HDMI Video Processor Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 7:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where do I start with this review? A post video processor is something that Ive never had any experience with, its actually something that really never thought about honestly. I have an HDTV and Blu-ray and all that high-definition stuff that weve gotten accustomed to. I always thought high-def was good enough and didnt need any improvement, but reviewing the product I have today I found I was wrong. What I have for review today is the Darblet, yes its kind of weird name, but the whole name is the DarbeeVision Darblet HDMI Video Processor, or Darblet for short! The Darblet sits between your HDTV and any HDMI type device like a Blu-ray player or PlayStation 3. You can put it between your HDTV and home theater system with many devices so you can utilize it with all of them. "

EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE 2GB Video Card Review @ circuitREMIX
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 10:55P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The video card from EVGA we`re looking at today is the GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE 2GB. To easily understand where it fits in EVGA`s lineup, it their entry level non-reference design offering that`s one step higher than the basic reference design. With the term FTW (for the win) in it`s name, you`d probably assume that this is one of EVGA`s higher end cards. You would be semi-right, as the FTW (and FTW SIG2) version are EVGA`s top 2GB GTX 670 products. It`s the LE suffix that denotes the lower end of the scale. To me, FTW LE is an oxymoron."
