Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Review
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month, Nvidia shook up the enthusiast GPU market by launching its most affordable Kepler offering yet. At $299, the GK104-based GeForce GTX 660 Ti was $100 cheaper than the GTX 670, while being just 13% slower. Likewise, the GTX 660 Ti was 11% faster and more power efficient than the competing Radeon HD 7870 when testing at 1920x1200 on most games, despite matching it on price. Predictably, AMD neutralized that threat by slashing prices. This balanced things out, with products from both major GPU makers finding their rightful place in the market. As is often the case, Nvidia dominated the premium segment, while AMD had stronger footing in the mainstream.

ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has already made a name for themselves as the top motherboard manufacturer for quite some time now, but they are really making a name for themselves in the graphics card market as well. Their specialized cards use quality components, come with better cooling than the reference design and even sometimes are overclocked. The card we are looking at today is no different. ASUSs GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP comes factory overclocked up to 900MHz, uses ASUSs own DirectCU II cooler and features a super alloy design on the power components. Lets take a look at this card and see what it can do!"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Round-Up: MSI, ZOTAC, Gigabyte
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past few months, we have taken a look at no less than four new high-end GPUs from NVIDIA based on the company’s Kepler microarchitecture. NVIDIA kicked things off with the GeForce GTX 680 back in May and followed up a few weeks later with the monstrous, dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 690, which remains the fastest graphics card in existence. A few days after that, the GeForce GTX 670 hit the scene and last month marked the arrival of the GeForce GTX 660 Ti. While all of these GeForce GTX 600 series cards differ in their delivered performance levels, they do have something major in common--they are all based on the same GK104 GPU. Today, NVIDIA is announcing two more GeForce GTX 600 series graphics cards, but unlike their older brothers, the new GeForce GTX 660 and GeForce GTX 650 are based on two different GPUs, the GK106 and GK107, respectively...

Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid 7970 vga cooler. The Accelero Hybrid 7970 offers the air and liquid combined solution for the world`s first 28nm GPUs, especially compatible with AMD 7900/7800 series.

Six GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics cards: ASUS
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you're looking for a GeForce GTX 660 Ti, you have plenty to choose from. We previously reviewed the graphics cards from ASUS, EVGA and MSI, and now Gigabyte and Zotac sent us their versions as well. On August 16, Nvidia introduced the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, a new type of graphics card based on the same GK104 GPU as the faster GeForce GTX 670 and 680, but more affordable with prices around £250-£270. Initially Nvidia positioned the card against AMD's Radeon HD 7870. After some smart moves on the part of AMD and a higher price for the Nvidia card, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is now is the direct competitor of the Radeon HD 7950. It's time for a six-card round-up to see which GTX 660 Ti comes out on top.

EVGA GTX 660 SC Edition
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The time is at last right for NVIDIA to official launch its GeForce GTX 660 after a few delays. Designed to compete against AMD's Radeon HD 7850, the GTX 660's new 28nm GK106 continues to leverage the SMX (streaming multiprocessor) architecture and GPU Boost technology first seen on the higher-end GTX 680. The EVGA GTX 660 SC Edition we're reviewing today features 960 CUDA cores, a 980MHz "base" GPU clock and a maximum potential GPU Boost clock of 1032MHz. The EVGA offering packs 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6GHz with a 192-bit memory interface, which could mean it performs much closer to the HD 7870. Hit our launch review of the GTX 660 to see how the new Kepler-based card places!

Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 review incl. SLI: Kepler
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 660 appears to be a great card for gaming on Full HD resolution. Until recently you had to spend £239 to be able to do that, and now it's less than £200. We did notice that with the highest settings, the GTX 660 was at times a little more sluggish than the faster GTX 660 Ti. You could scale down the settings somewhat, or spend a little more and get the GeForce GTX 660 Ti or Radeon HD 7950.

ASUS KFA2 and MSI GeForce GTX 660 reviews with 2-way SLI
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA today launches the GeForce GTX 650 and 660. Especially that GTX 660 (not to confuse with the GTX 660 Ti) is about to stir some emotion in the land of graphics cards. Starting today up to next week we`ll have a series of reviews and articles covering the new products. We start off with three board partner reviews."

Sapphire FleX HD 7770 GHz Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphires selection of cards for the HD 7000 series has been impressive to say the least. On top of having stock and overclocked versions of every model, they also have a few different models like the Vapor-X and FleX, each serving a different purpose. The vapor-X models having ungraded cooling and their FLeX models have improved support for multiple monitors. We have taken a look at everything else from their HD 7770 lineup; it’s only natural that we take a look at the HD 7770 as well. We know that FleX cards can be great deals for people looking for a cheaper way to run multiple monitors without having to pick up active Displayport adapters or Displayport monitors, let’s take a look at the HD 7770 FleX and see if it holds up to the FleX name.

ASUS was kind enough to provide us with one of their most anticipated graphics cards, which will be available soon. What we're talking about is the ASUS Matrix HD7970 Platinum and luckily today is the day when the embargo concerning pictures of this beautiful piece of hardware lifts. But unfortunately we still can't talk about the specs. But nevertheless you'll be able to find detailed information on ocaholic at the 27th of September.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Review - Kepler GK106 at $229
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 10:17A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering that the GTX 660 2GB card is going to have an MSRP about $30 less than the HD 7870, and about $30 more than Radeon HD 7850, that gives the new GTX 660 a pretty positive result. It is not quite the runaway that the early GTX 600-series cards were, but as the cost of these graphics cards decreases, the margins get tighter and the overlap between them will increase dramatically."
