NVIDIA SHIELD OTA Update & Performance Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Apr 07 2014 | 11:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA SHIELD is potentially the next evolution of mobile gaming. The SHIELD in a nutshell is a blend of mobile android devices, PC gaming, and console gaming. When the NVIDIA SHIELD first came out last year, it was carrying a price tag of $299, eventually that dropped to $249 and that remains the current price for the SHIELD. Though for right now through the end of April NVIDIA has lowered the price to $199 to celebrate the latest and greatest over the air update that we announced last week here."

Titanfall Performance Boost: NVIDIA R337 Drivers
     Mon, Apr 07 2014 | 8:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Titanfall has been one of the most-anticipated games of 2014, and for a very good reason. Combining the best first-person shooter aspects of Call of Duty and Battlefield into a mech-themed FPS video game isn?t easy to pull off, but Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts do so with great success. Available for console and PC, gamers who want ultimate immersion and control will likely gravitate towards the desktop gaming platform. For good reason then, NVIDIA has focused a significant amount of its resources towards optimizing performance so that players can enable the best graphical quality settings possible."

ASUS Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC Review @ ocaholic
     Sun, Apr 06 2014 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are quite a few custom Radeon R9 290 graphics cards available meanwhile and today we are going to have a look at the ASUS one, the Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC. The Radeon R9 290 version is no different from other high-end DirectCU II cards from the manufacturer, you don`t change a formula that works. The R9 290 DirectCU II OC features a custom PCB with a beefed up power design and is chilled by the latest version of the DirectCU II cooler. Other than the obvious the card has a factory overclocking on both the core and memory as well as a BIOS DIP switch allowing users to choose between a silent or a performance operation."

XFX R9 290X Black OC Edition Graphics Card Review with Mantle @ HardwareHeaven.com

XFX R9 290X Black OC Edition Graphics Card Review with Mantle @ HardwareHeaven.com Today on our test bench we have a Radeon 290X from XFX, the R9-290X Black OC Double Dissipation. With custom design and expanded voltage tweaking it aims to exceed anything we have seen from a 290X to date. We will be putting it through a selection of real world tests to establish how it performs in the latest games... and taking a look at AMD Mantle too."

XFX R9 290 Double Dissipation Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 16 2014 | 7:15P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of last year`s AMD cards there was one card that stood above the rest with an all metal custom cooler. That was the double dissipation HD 7970 from XFX. This year there is a lot more competition and XFX has changed their design once again. I`m excited to find out how XFX stands up against the competition this year. With a black and chrome it certainly has the styling needed, but how is the performance? Let`s find out!"

GPU Charts 2014 @ ocaholic
     Sun, Mar 16 2014 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As usual we have used an up to date system with three synthetic benchmarks and ten more or less recent games, benched at 1920x1080 with highest graphics settings. Only reference cards from both nVidia and AMD/ATI will be listed (aka no AIB cards). The idea behind is to show a performance overview of the current gaming graphics cards."

XFX R7 250 Review
     Sat, Mar 15 2014 | 7:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With so many revisions being released lately it can be hard for established gamers on a budget to justify wanting to buy upgrades when their equipment might perform similarly (as the HD 7750 and R7 250 does). For people building new systems right now the HD 7750 is priced slightly cheaper (but it does have a rebate at this time), and while it is 1-2 generations older (two if you count the OEM-only HD 8000 series), it did perform slightly better than the R7 250. Upgrading from older generation graphics cards would be much wiser than a jump from a mid-range HD 7000-series to the mid-range R7-series."

Gigabyte Geforce GTX 780 GHz Edition Video Card Review @HiTech Legion

Just when you thought you would have to wait until Maxwell to see a performance boost from nVidia, Gigabyte has released the GTX 780 GHz Edition. The Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz Edition takes its name from the largest OC on a GTX 780 available, bumping the base clock to 1019 MHZ with a Boost Clock of a scorching 1071 MHz. /"

MSI Radeon R9 290X Gaming Review! @ Bjorn3D
     Mon, Mar 10 2014 | 9:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen many MSI custom PCB or fully custom PCB or even just custom cooled cards and they always impress with some very nice temps along with looking pretty awesome as well. The gaming series carries the Red/Black theme with a custom Twin Frozr model cooler and offers usually a nice overclock with some really good gaming performance to offer some amazing framerates for the end-user. The card we have today needs no introduction as the R9-290X from AMD made a big splash when it entered the market although not all of the noise was good as users quickly found that the reference cards were plagued with massive heat from a simply inadequate cooler design. Well that being the case we do know that the Twin Frozr cooler design does very well at removing heat so the 290X is naturally a perfect candidate for testing just how well the cooler works as the thermal load from the 290X GPU is intense so if MSIs Twin Frozr can pull off a good showing it will just be proof positive of what we had said previously in praise of the MSI cooling solution.

Sapphire R7 250 Ultimate Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Mar 10 2014 | 8:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphires R7 250 Ultimate graphics card is unlike most other R7 250s out there. The thing that most people will notice is that it is 100% passively cooled. This means that there are no fans at all so it will be 100% silent during operation. This makes it the perfect card for those building a silent PC or home theater PC. On top of that this card is actually based on the Cape Verde GPU rather than the Oland GPU that most R7 250s are based on. So you get 512 shader units and faster GDDR5 memory. Lets see what this passively cooled card is all about!"

PowerColor Radeon R7 250X 1GB Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Mar 09 2014 | 6:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month AMD released the Radeon R7 250X, an entry level discrete graphics card that is part of the Radeon R7/R9 ?new? product line. The AMD Radeon R7 250X sells for around $99 and fills the small gap between the AMD Radeon R7 250 at $89 and the the Radeon R7 260 at $109. The next step up from that is the Radeon R7 260X that goes for between $119 with 1GB of memory to $129 for 2GB of memory. This means that AMD now has offerings on the market at $10 price increments between $89 to $129! The mainstream discrete video card market is certainly not lacking enough cards to pick from and it feels like there is almost too many cards to pick from right now. The AMD Radeon R7 250X graphics card that we are taking a look at today is the PowerColor AXR7 250X 1GBD5-HE..."

ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP & R9 270 DirectCU II OC Review
     Sun, Mar 09 2014 | 6:45P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To reach the fully stable 1170MHz core clock, I set the core voltage to 1300mv in GPU Tweak and started raising the core clock speed until my testing failed, and then backed off 10MHz. At 1170MHz, it still leaves performance on the table when compared to Sapphire Toxic edition, but it takes time and the luck of the draw to bin cards that high. Considering this card comes with a 1070MHz baseline core clock speed increase of 100MHz, or just under 10% improvement in clock speed, is not a stretch expectation. From the factory, the memory clock speed is running at 1600MHz. Boosting up the clock speed on the GDDR5 memory was accomplished using the same process as on the Tahiti core and essentially delivered an identical 100MHz boost in memory clock speed improvement for your time and effort. These are not the highest clock speeds I have seen on a Tahiti-based card, but do offer up another level of performance if you spend the time to work for it."

Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Tri-X 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Sun, Mar 09 2014 | 8:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If all of these cards were available today, the Sapphire Tri-X model would be one of, if not THE best option for high end enthusiast gamers on the market. As it sits now, gamers are forced to either wait and see what happens to pricing and availability to the new R9 290X models in January or they can decide to buy a GeForce GTX product today. It`s a tougher choice for many than I think AMD and its partners would like to admit."
