NVIDIA G-Sync: Death of the Refresh Rate
     Wed, Nov 06 2013 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
G-Sync essentially functions by altering and controlling the vBlank signal sent to the monitor. In a normal configuration, vBlank is a combination of the combination of the vertical front and back porch and the necessary sync time. That timing is set a fixed stepping that determines the effective refresh rate of the monitor; 60 Hz, 120 Hz, etc. What NVIDIA will now do in the driver and firmware is lengthen or shorten the vBlank signal as desired and will send it when one of two criteria is met."

ASUS Radeon R9 280X Matrix Platinum Review @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Nov 06 2013 | 10:58A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the AMD Radeon R9 280X is roughly speaking nothing else than a renamed Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, AMD`s partners are launching custom designs right from the beginning. ASUS, for example, is offering no less than six cards; two Matrix, two DirectCU II triple slot and two DirectCU II dual slot. Today we`re going to have a look at the most powerful card, the Matrix Platinum."

AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB Review - Trip to Hawaii for $399
     Wed, Nov 06 2013 | 6:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This leads us to the issue of pricing and AMD`s maybe overly aggressive stance. The R9 290 will cost $399 at launch, making it clearly the best enthusiast graphics card for gamers. Considering the performance it brings and the cards it competes with, the $399 price tag should be an easy sell. The R9 290 is much faster than the $329 GeForce GTX 770, while also running past the $100 MORE expensive GTX 780 3GB. The GTX TITAN shouldn`t even be in the conversation for gamers."

HIS R7 260X iPower IceQ X 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Nov 05 2013 | 4:35P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS R7 260X iPower IceQ X comes with a greatly improved dual fan heatsink, that is just so much better than the AMD reference design cooler. Unfortunately HIS did not choose to overclock their card out of the box, which would have been easy, given the numbers we`ve been seeing during manual overclocking."

AMD Radeon R9 290 4 GB @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 11:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is launching their new Radeon R9 290 today. It comes with slightly weaker specifications than the R9 290X, but can compete with its bigger brother in benchmarks. Thanks to the fantastic price of just $399, the card is also extremely affordable."

Today we`re having a close look at the differences between the GTX 680 and the GTX 780."

NVIDIA G-Sync explained (article)
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,On Friday NVIDIA announced G-Sync, and considering the little details available out there I wanted to write a quick follow-up on this new technology, as it really is a big announcement - a really big thing actually. NVIDIA G-SYNC is a solution that pretty much eliminates screen tearing, VSync input lag, and stutter. You need a G-SYNC module into monitors, allowing G-SYNC to synchronize the monitor to the output of the GPU."

AMD Radeon R9 290X Hawaii - The Configurable GPU?
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 11:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s claim the that the R9 290X is an enthusiast configurable GPU does have some merit though. I would agree that most users purchasing a $500+ graphics card will have a basic knowledge of the control panel and its settings. Gamers will be able to get some extra performance out of the R9 290X by simply increasing the maximum fan speed as long as they are comfortable with the increased sound levels."

Intel HD Sandy/Ivy Bridge Linux Graphics Performance On Ubuntu 13.10
     Mon, Nov 04 2013 | 11:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With most of the exciting Intel Mesa open-source Linux graphics driver updates being now about Haswell or Bay Trail (Valley View), it`s been a while since last publishing any benchmarks of previous-generation Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge graphics results with the latest open-source driver code. Changing that, today are benchmarks of several different Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors when running Ubuntu 13.10 with the Linux 3.11 kernel and Mesa 9.2."

Nvidia G-Sync in action
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G-Sync demonstration was very impressive, and it could very well have a very positive impact on PC graphics. For a final verdict it's of course too early. It will have to be thoroughly tested with a variety of hardware configurations and games. It’s a shame that consumers are forced to choose between this and AMD’s equally impressive Mantle and TrueAudio technology.

VisionTek Radeon R9 280X Video Card Review
     Sat, Nov 02 2013 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The VisionTek Radeon R9 280X is an excellent card in terms of performance. I threw it up against an SLI setup and in most cases it was able to out perform it and at a cheaper price too.

AMD Radeon R9 290X review: AMD's new high-end Hawaii GPU
     Sat, Nov 02 2013 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon R9 290X is an extremely powerful graphics card, faster than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 in almost every benchmark, and faster than the Titan in more than a few. With 4K resolution, which of course is still very exotic for all but the early adopters, the Radeon R9 290X takes first place in every single benchmark. Nvidia still frequently does better when it comes to the frametimes, and the 780 and Titan cards are more quiet than the 290X.
