AMD Details Next Gen. Radeon HD 8000M GPUs @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Dec 17 2012 | 8:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a presentation to the media, AMD has laid out the details for several of its next generation HD 8000-series GPU cores which are destined to appear in notebooks. The HD 8800, HD 8700, HD 8600 and HD 8500 may not be the flagship parts some were hoping for but they use AMD`s refreshed GCN architecture."

AMD Radeon Performance Preview On Linux 3.8
     Mon, Dec 17 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With word this week that there`s some performance improvements for the open-source Radeon Linux graphics driver to be found with the Linux 3.8 kernel as a result of the a-synchronous DMA engine support, some very early benchmarks of the drm-next code were done from five different AMD Radeon graphics cards. In extreme cases, the open-source graphics driver can deliver 10x higher OpenGL frame-rates with the experimental kernel."

News: Does the Radeon HD 7950 stumble in Windows 8?
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 10:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week, we published a rematch between the Radeon HD 7950 and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti in which the Radeon took an unexpected beating. Readers asked: could Windows 8 be the culprit? We investigated, and what we found may surprise you."

DarbeeVision Darblet HDMI Video Processor Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 7:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where do I start with this review? A post video processor is something that Ive never had any experience with, its actually something that really never thought about honestly. I have an HDTV and Blu-ray and all that high-definition stuff that weve gotten accustomed to. I always thought high-def was good enough and didnt need any improvement, but reviewing the product I have today I found I was wrong. What I have for review today is the Darblet, yes its kind of weird name, but the whole name is the DarbeeVision Darblet HDMI Video Processor, or Darblet for short! The Darblet sits between your HDTV and any HDMI type device like a Blu-ray player or PlayStation 3. You can put it between your HDTV and home theater system with many devices so you can utilize it with all of them. "

EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE 2GB Video Card Review @ circuitREMIX
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 10:55P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The video card from EVGA we`re looking at today is the GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE 2GB. To easily understand where it fits in EVGA`s lineup, it their entry level non-reference design offering that`s one step higher than the basic reference design. With the term FTW (for the win) in it`s name, you`d probably assume that this is one of EVGA`s higher end cards. You would be semi-right, as the FTW (and FTW SIG2) version are EVGA`s top 2GB GTX 670 products. It`s the LE suffix that denotes the lower end of the scale. To me, FTW LE is an oxymoron."

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II @ Bjorn3D
     Sat, Dec 08 2012 | 5:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has its own way of putting a special spin on its GPU offerings through special overclock models along with DirectCU II cooling solutions which always tend to deliver something special. Today we have an ASUS GeForce GTX 660 on the test bench to see exactly how this bang for the buck card will perform."

Club 3D HD 7870 jokerCard Tahiti LE 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Club3D is first to release a Tahiti LE based HD 7870. Their jokerCard runs 1536 shaders with very decent clock speeds, which results in an 8% performance improvement over HD 7870, just 2% shy of matching HD 7950. This performance increase does come at the cost of increased power draw though."

REVIEW: HIS 7970 IceQ X2 GHz Edition
     Sun, Dec 02 2012 | 10:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest Radeon to hit our test bench is the HIS 7970 IceQ X2 GHz Edition. No doubt you can infer from the name that this card comes with a factory overclock with speeds of at least a GHz, and the card does indeed sport the company`s redesigned custom cooler. We`ve seen this cooler before in testing, and came away suitably impressed. Hopefully we`ll see more of the same today on this 7970 GHz Edition. Let`s find out."

ASUS GeForce GTX 680 2GB DirectCU II Review @ circuitREMIX
     Sun, Dec 02 2012 | 6:59P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next in our series of video cards review is a product from ASUS. As a large tier-1 hardware manufacturer, ASUS is both a partner of AMD and nVidia for its graphics products. Today we`ll be looking at one of ASUS` high end nVidia GeForce GTX 680 based products. One step below the flagship of ASUS` GTX 680 series, the GTX680-DC2O-2GD5 has most of the same ASUS exclusive features as their top dog: the DirectCU II cooler and 10 power phases coupled with the DIGI+ VRM. The only difference is a smaller factory overclock."

ZOTAC GTX 660Ti AMP! Extreme Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Dec 02 2012 | 3:18A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on the same GK104 processor as the GTX670, it should come as no surprise that the GTX660Ti is one of the best graphics cards available at the 200-250 price point. We`ve already seen what the ZOTAC GTX660Ti AMP! edition can do so today we evaluate the tweaked `Extreme` Edition which has an increased core clockspeed of 1098MHz, 65MHz higher than the standard AMP! Edition which results in a Boost speed of 1176MHz. Coupled with with the GK104`s 1344 CUDA cores, the ZOTAC GTX660Ti AMP! Extreme Edition should be a formidable piece of hardware."

     Fri, Nov 30 2012 | 10:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After earlier this week delivering a 12-way AMD Radeon graphics card comparison with the open-source Linux Gallium3D graphics driver, being published today is a similar comparison on the NVIDIA side. Tested for this article were eight NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards from multiple hardware generations while using the very latest open-source Nouveau driver code."

nVidia ForceWare 310.61 Beta - GeForce GTX 680 Gaming Performance @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 9:06A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago we started testing AMD drivers and since a few weeks, we also have an article where we tested way more than ten NVIDIA drivers. Today we`re going to update the NVIDIA article with the latest driver from the GPU manufacturer with the green logo."

HIS Radeon HD 7950 IceQ X Boost 3 GB @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 2:21P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS Radeon HD 7950 IceQ X? Boost comes with a large overclock, which increases its out of the box performance to GTX 670 levels. Thanks to a large dual fan cooler we also see great temperature and massive overclocking potential: +20% real life performance from overclocking."

GIGABYTE Geforce GTX 670 (2GB) WINDFORCE 3X Video Card Review @circuitREMIX
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 8:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Instead of releasing a plain-jane GIGABYTE branded reference design video card for its volume GeForce GTX 670 product, GIGABYTE injected its own style into its offering. Like the headlining products across the whole GIGABYTE GeForce 600 series, its top of the line GTX 670 product features a WINDFORCE cooler."
