OCZ Vertex 4 256GB - faster than greased HDDs?
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“About a year or so ago, OCZ bought Indilinx planning to develop their own proprietary controller, and we've been waiting to see the results. First came the "Indilinx-Infused" Everest 1 controller on the OCZ Octane, and it was impressive but not entirely reality-altering. Maybe we're curmedgeons but we wanted more. And now OCZ has the Vertex 4, featuring the newest Everest 2 controller, promising enthusiast-classed performance to battle the SandForce drives.”

Sapphire HD 7870 FLeX @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that we have seen all of the various stock and overclocked versions of the HD 7000 series cards, some of the more interesting variations are starting to trickle out. A good example of this is from Sapphire, not only do they have a WIDE variety of versions. They are actually introducing a new card today, the Sapphire HD 7870 FLeX. For those of you who have been around for a while, you have seen us cover their FLeX lineup before. With the FLeX lineup allowing you to run three monitors in Eyefinity without any active adapters, it is perfect for someone who is already running multiple monitors. As we have seen in the past, if you plan on gaming in Eyefinity you need to have the power to push your favorite games, the HD 7870 is the fastest FLeX card we have tested to date, if any card can do it, it should.

AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on the 16 games that we tested with, 10 of which were DX11 titles, the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition was on average 5% faster than the GeForce GTX 680. However by far its biggest win came when testing DiRT 3 Showdown, where the 7970 GHz Edition was 52% faster, even so when removing that game it was still on average 2% faster.

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at Sapphire's 7950 FleX Edition. With this card, there is no need to use expensive DisplayPort monitors or adapters for Eyefinity. Add to that an upgraded cooler, overclocked core, and the raw power of a 7950, and we may just have a winner here.

Radeon HD 7970 GHz edition review
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 9:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Radeon HD 7970 GHz edition. The product is called GHz edition though even a little more. AMD now uses a Boost feature, exactly similar to what NVIDIA is doing on the 670/680 cards. The R7970 Ghz edition can `boost` from 1000 MHz towards 1050 MHz if it meets the right conditions. So the board power (maximum power draw) needs to allow it to do so, if not it drops to 1 GHz or whatever board power range is allowed. Not only have there been tweaks on the GPU, no the memory clocks got overhauled as well and have been increased from 5,5 Gbps towards 6 Gbps bringing the product a good chunk of additional memory bandwidth. Overall the new values should bring the product a nice 10 to 15% performance boost opposed to the regular model. Read the article here"

Sapphire HD 7970 Dual X Review
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 11:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dual X cooler is really the bonus to this particular card; it is the real feature that sets it apart from not only other 7970s but also other high-end cards. Under full load it shows off its true colors as one of the best cooled cards on the market while remaining quiet (in a relative manner). With the fans at full it can dissipate quite a bit of heat away from the card to keep it cool and ready for more. It might dump a little more heat to the case at idle and run slightly hotter at idle, but it is much better than a constant vacuum cleaner noise coming from your case."

ASUS GTX680 DirectCU II Top review
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We really like the GeForce GTX 680. For little over a dozen quid extra you can buy the ASUS GTX680-DC2T-2GD5, the DirectCU II Top version. The GPU on this card runs at a 13 percent higher clock frequency which does result in improved performance. More important is the improved cooling, despite its higher clock speed the card remains 20 degrees cooler. Moreover, this excellent cooling performance doesn't cause more noise. Because of these qualities, the ASUS card has better overclocking potential. You do need to keep in mind however that the graphics card takes up three entire expansion slots.

MSI Radeon HD 7870 Hawk 2GB Video Card
     Thu, Jun 21 2012 | 5:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Radeon HD 7000 series is out in full force now and even with the NVIDIA 600 series launching, it's still getting a lot of attention. As is typical with video card releases, manufacturers like to make their own designs and subtle changes and release various different cards based off of the same GPU. Here at Benchmark Reviews, we've received the MSI Radeon HD R7870 Hawk video card and we are prepared to put it to the test. With an unlocked BIOS and a digital PWM, the MSI R7870 Hawk begs to be overclocked. Let's find out just how fast it can go.

Sapphire's HD 7950 Flex
     Wed, Jun 20 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire's HD 7950 Flex helps deliver multi-monitor Eyefinity out of the box by not only making connection of up to three displays to a single graphics card easier, but more cost effective to boot since no additional adapters or DisplayPort monitors are needed from the user. It also ships overclocked with a Dual-X thermal solution to provide a performance increase over the reference cards. See how it performs in our review.

first HD 7770 on the market
     Wed, Jun 20 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has created something that was actually able to surprise us, as the R7770 PE is not only the first HD 7770 on the market to include a triple over-voltage feature, but it is also the first to our knowledge that has a customizable thermal solution. The R7770 PE includes an additional fan that can be installed on the card itself in different configuration to improve the thermal performance in different ways. Find out how it works in our review.

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.
