     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink

Diamond Radeon HD 7870 2GB Double Black Diamond Review @ circuitREMIX
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 4:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Shortly after the launch of the Radeon HD 7870, the only video cards available were clones of the reference design. Now that we`re past the initial launch period, new models of the 7870 are now available which deviate from the standard. The model we`re looking at today is called the Double Black Diamond. A step up from the vanilla 7870, the Double Black Diamond comes with an overclock of 50MHz to the GPU and 25MHz (200MHz GDDR5 effective)."

EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Superclocked Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 4:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the GTX 670 launched, many wondered what kinds of changes NVIDIA`s board partners would make with the final retail cards.  While Gigabyte, ASUS, Galaxy and some others went the route of fully customized versions, EVGA stuck with the reference design for their new Superclocked edition.  But other than increased clock speeds, EVGA has packed in a few additional surprises for us. "

GTX 670 & 680 Clock per Clock and GPU Boost Analysis @ Ocaholic
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 4:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we are going to analyse two things: first the clock per clock performance between the GTX 670 and GTX 680 both clocked at 1 GHz. To do so we have bypassed the GPU Boost so the graphics cards have a minimum and maximum clock frequency of 1 GHz. Second, we have raised the TDP of our GTX 670 to see how the GPU Boost will react and what it`s impact on performance actually is. So let`s find out what`s really happening behind the scene, let there be light!"

Gainward GeForce GTX 670 Phantom Review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After many months of talking up its latest architecture, Nvidia reclaimed the single-GPU performance crown with its GeForce GTX 680, which outpaced the Radeon HD 7970 by about 7% in our tests. Kepler's arrival forced AMD to slash prices across its Southern Islands lineup, including a $70 drop on the HD 7970, putting it at $479 or about 4% cheaper than the GTX 680's MSRP of $499. The HD 7950 also took a $60 cut to $399, making it one of the most tempting 7000 series cards because it has no equal -- or had no equal, we should say. Continuing Kepler's rollout, Nvidia has unveiled the GTX 670, which is priced against the HD 7950 at $399. Despite being $100 cheaper than the GTX 680, the GTX 670 doesn't appear to be much slower on paper, and that could spell disaster for AMD.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Reviews, EVGA and Gigabyte
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the impressive, dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 690, which launched just a few short days ago, NVIDIA is already back with a much more affordable Kepler variant featuring a slightly pared down GK104 GPU. What’s perhaps most interesting to all of you though, is that this new card will offer near-GeForce GTX 680 performance, at prices starting under the $400 mark. The new GeForce GTX 670 we’ll be showing you here today sports the very same chip that powers the high-end GeForce GTX 680 and 690, but with a few shader cores disabled. The cards will sport a more compact design and a few other tweaks as well...

Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 review plus SLI and 3-way SLI
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 670 is an average of 10.1 percent slower than the GeForce GTX 680 according to our benchmarks. The price is also about 22 percent lower, however, and you don't need to be a math wiz to realise that the price/performance ratio of the GTX 670 is better than that of the GTX 680. The most interesting difference is with the similarly priced Radeon HD 7950. Nvidia's GTX 670 performs an average of 14.9 percent better than AMD's card. While you can find some good discounts for AMDs card, at an equal price the Nvidia card gives you more bang for your buck. In areas other than performance it's a draw. Energy consumption is almost the same and both feature PCI-Express 3.0, support three monitors on one card, an integrated video encoder, excellent video decoder and DirectX 11.1.

Palit GeForce GTX 680 4GB Jetstream review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Palit GeForce GTX 680 4GB Jetstream edition. Why 4 GB ? Well some of you like to game at extremely high resolutions or have 8xAA as a bare minimum. If a graphics card runs out of graphics memory it`ll starts swapping frames back and forward in that framebuffer which decreases the overall framerate. So today we`ll look at the 4GB model, we`ll specifically place a focus at some tests at 2560x1600 with a good chunk of AA enabled to see what difference the extra 2GB graphics memory will bring us in terms of performance. Check out the review here"

GIGABYTE GTX680 Windforce 3x OC Review @ Vortez
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve seen a few cards now with the Windforce cooler and each has impressed us with its cooling ability and acoustic reduction of reference designs. The 3x Windforce cooler on the GTX680 has been used before, notably on the AMD HD7950 where it performed extremely well so we are hoping for similar results with the GTX680 it is tasked with cooling this time around."

MSI GTX 680 Twin Frozr III OC 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s GTX 680 Twin Frozr III uses the company`s large dual-fan signature cooler, which provides excellent temperatures in both idle and load. Fan noise is reduced too, and the card is overclocked out of the box, which makes it easier for less experienced users to get the maximum out of their card."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition OC Video Card Review

a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks reviews a mid range GPU from Sapphire and AMD ... * * *Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition OC Video Card Review* * * The question I always find myself asking is when it comes to my next graphics card purchase, what is more important? Is it processing core count or clock speed? The answer is often not clear with so many options on the market. Especially in the highly contested $150 ? 200 price range. AMD has taken a side on the question for now as they are phasing out older cards with a new architecture that may have fewer stream processors, but much higher clock speeds. Today we are putting a card that follows this new trend and they call it the Sapphire HD 7770 GHz Edition OC. Let?s put it through its paces and see if this new approach to performance is the right one. *"

Digital Storm ODE Level 4 System Review
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How do you make the experience of buying from a boutique system builder easier than it already is? If you're Digital Storm, you answer that question by offering a line of pre-configured machines that are fully loaded to meet your budget and ready to ship in 72 hours. Not only do you save the time and energy required to build your own system from scratch, you also skip the exercise in picking out each individual component and then crossing your fingers hoping you've made solid selections. Digital Storm opted to send us their top-of-the-line Level 4 configuration outfitted with an overclocked Intel Core i7 3930K processor cooled by a Corsair H100 liquid CPU cooler, 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 memory, a 120GB Corsair Force GT solid state drive (flanked by a 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 drive for storage chores), two AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards sitting pretty in Crossfire, a Blu-ray reader, and other odds and ends wrapped in an attractive Corsair Graphite Series 600T white mid-tower chassis with LED lighting...

Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC Edition 2GB Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 3:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD?s 7000 series is made up of 3 segments. Starting with the flagship 7900 which are the high-end cards. Then we have the 7700 series which has budget gamers in mind. Finally we have the 7800 series which sits right in the middle to hit the sweet spot between cost and performance. The 7800 series has 2 cards the 7850 and the 7870, today we are taking a look at the 7850. Not just any 7850 though, the 7850 Overclocked Edition from Sapphire. This card really makes the sweet spot even sweeter with a factory overclock moving the core up to 920MHz and the memory up to 1250MHz. Sapphire has also added their popular Dual-X cooler for better cooling performance. Read on to see what this card is all about."

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.
