AMD Radeon R9 290X Review
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the one we've been waiting for. The Radeon R9 290X brings some truly new technology in the form of the GPU code-named "Hawaii." Read on for our pleasingly-yet-slightly-threateningly-detailed review.

AMD Radeon R9 290X Review: Welcome To Hawaii
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has launched their new top-end Radeon R9 290X graphics card today. The new flagship wasn't ready in time for AMD's recent October 8th launch of midrange product, but the new top of the line model, based on the GPU codenamed Hawaii, is ready now. The R9 290 series GPU (Hawaii) is comprised of up to 44 compute units with a total of 2,816 IEEE-2008 compliant shaders. The GPU has four geometry processors (2x the Radeon HD 7970) and can output 64 pixels per clock. The card's 4GB of GDDR5 memory is accessed by the GPU via a wide 512-bit interface and the R290X requires a pair of supplemental PCIe power connectors-one 6-pin and one 8-pin. Save for some minimum frame rate and frame latency issues, the new Radeon R9 290X's performance is impressive overall. AMD still has some obvious driver tuning and optimization to do, but frame rates across the board were very good and easily rival NVIDIA's high-end offering...

AMD Radeon R9 290X
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What makes the Radeon R9 290X matching the GeForce GTX Titan so significant is the price, at $550 the R9 290X is currently 45% cheaper. We are gob smacked by this. This puts it in direct competition with the GTX 780 which still costs more at $650, making the R9 290X around 15% cheaper. That is incredible given the R9 290X was on average 10% faster than the GTX 780.

AMD Radeon R9 290X Review
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX Titan blew us all away eight months ago with its mindblowingly fast GPU. The catch, of course, was that Nvidia wanted $1,000 for it. In a sense, the Radeon R9 290X could be considered AMD's Titan, as it takes the Tahiti architecture and stuffs with nearly 2000 million more transistors. It's the most complex and powerful GPU AMD has created and by no coincidence, it's also one of the most expensive, but before you click away, that's "only" $550, which is substantially cheaper than Nvidia's solution.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 OC / GTX 780 OC review
     Fri, Nov 01 2013 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte GV-N770OC-2GD and GV-N780OC-3GD are good video cards. Their performance is in line with other GeForce GTX 770 and 780 cards, and the overclocking potential is fine. A strong side of these cards is how silent they are when idle.

GPU Charts Q4 2013: 24 DX11 Graphics Cards @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 11:08A | 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 current gaming graphics cards when everything is up to date."

Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte's R9 280X OC comes at no price premium, yet features an overclock out of the box and uses the company's famous triple-fan WindForce 3X cooling solution. With a 100 MHz GPU overclock, it manages to beat the much more expensive GTX 770 in real-life performance.

The R9 270X HAWK features the manufacturer`s top cooling solution known as Twin Frozr IV Advanced and a beefed up power design/PCB.

AMD Radeon R9 280X Roundup: ASUS MSI and Sapphire
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 4:35P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Clearly the TOXIC card attempts to justify its price with the larger and impressive cooler along with the highest default overclocks. Both the ASUS and MSI cards are on equal price footing and both provide very similar features. The DirectCU II cooler and custom board design from the ASUS option likely give it the edge, head to head."

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.
