MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning 3GB Video Card Overclocked Review
     Sun, Apr 08 2012 | 8:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lightning series of video cards from MSI are just one of those series that I look forward to probably a little bit more than most other series on the market. MSI are consistent with the series and we have never been disappointed with any model that gets the Lightning treatment. The latest video card to get the Lightning treatment is the AMD Radeon HD 7970 and as always we hope it brings us some serious overclocking potential like previous Lightning models have. The HD 7970, though, is a good jumping point for MSI as the model itself has proved to perform quite well when it`s come to overclocking. With the general MSI tweaks, though, we expect some serious clocks."

MSI R7970 Lightning Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 10:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking the MSI R7970 Lighting was a blast and the fact that we could take it from 1070 MHz on the core all the way up to 1275 MHz was impressive. AMD released the Radeon HD 7970 with a 925 MHz core clock, so this is a 350 MHz overclock on the core! This card was really fun to overclock on air, so we can only imagine what those with LN2 pots will be able to hit..."

Sapphire's HD 7850 OC Edition
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire's HD 7850 OC Edition is faster and quieter than AMD's reference model we reviewed earlier, but it's also smaller to boot. It offers all this while keeping the same amazing feature-set and performance-per-watt of AMD's mid-range wonder. See how it stacks against similar cards in our review.

S Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo is a menacing looking graphics card thanks to that huge black fan shroud and thick copper heatpipes that loop out the side like some kind of robotic tentacles. There is no question that this is a bad ass graphics card that will undoubtedly turn a lot of heads, but is it as impressive as it looks?

MSI R7970 Lightning Review: AMDs HD 7970 Gets the Treatment
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 8:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So am I in love with this card as much as the previous Lightnings? No. This is due to the simple experience that I had. It did not initially work as advertised, but it might simply be a less than stellar example of the design. MSI appears to have done a nice job on the design and functionality of the card. The cooling is outstanding, the ability to drive six monitors is a plus, and the idea behind the GPU Reactor is sound. This particular example just gave me fits right off the bat."

AMD HD7870 2GB GDDR5 Review
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD7870 comes with 2GB of GDDR5 which is more than enough for the today's latest games and has AMD's latest GCN enabled architecture codenamed 'Pitcairn XT'. We will go into the details of this new core on the next page but as you would expect it is slightly less powerful than the Tahiti XT while having much more grunt than the 77XX Cape Verde. Don't be fooled into thinking the HD7870 is a go between card though as going by the specifications, it is not far behind the HD7950 GPU which has been a massive hit here at Vortez. Hopefully we will see performance to equal the impressive specifications of the AMD HD7870 because if it doesn't, I fear the green team will be mopping up the mid-range market with their last gen GPUs.

ASUS Radeon HD 7870 DirectCU II 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 3:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Radeon HD 7870 Direct CU II is a highly overclocked custom version of the Radeon HD 7870. Coming at clock speeds of 1100 MHz GPU and 1250 MHz memory, it is a good deal faster than the AMD reference design. Thanks to aggressive pricing, the card retails at $360, which means there is no price increase for overclocking."

Acer Timeline Ultra M3 & NVIDIA GT 640M Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 2:38P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Acer`s new Timeline Ultra M3 blazes a path that no others have been willing to take. By incorporating one of NVIDIA`s new GT 640M Kepler-based graphics processors within their design, they have become the first company to include a gaming-grade GPU into an Ultrabook. It sounds great but does this combination actually work out as planned? We find out. * *"

AMD FirePro V3900: Pro Performance, Bargain Price
     Sat, Mar 31 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The FirePro V3900 is AMD's latest budget solution for the professional graphics market. We covered the card's launch last month. It's a formidable step up from the V3800 it replaces. Budget card launches may lack some of the excitement of high-end product debuts, but lower-end cards like the V3900 account for a significant percentage of AMD's total GPU sales. The V3900 is interesting for another reason -- it's AMD's latest salvo in its ongoing campaign to steal professional market share away from rival Nvidia. Workstation-class GPU sales are overwhelmingly dominated by Team Green, but AMD has slashed its professional prices in an attempt to siphon market share.

Sapphire HD 7850 OC Radeon Review @ TechwareLabs

Posted by: STAFF
TechwareLabs reviews the Sapphire HD 7850 OC showing a reasonably priced Radeon card with Eyefinity puts up benchmark numbers that challenge or surpass the NVIDIA 500 series. We benchmark the HD 7850 OC on a PCI 3.0 and PCI 2.0 motherboard to see if the HD 7850 OC has what it takes to take advantage of this new technology."

Palit JetStream GeForce GTX 680 2GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 12:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We should start to see that all change over the coming months, not only because we have the new GTX 680, but we`ll see NVIDIA fill out the GTX 600 series line over the next few months while we then see their partners offer us fancy new variants of the model. Next up we`ll see the GTX 670 in May of course followed by the GTX 660, 650 and low-end models. Speaking of fancy new variants, though, we didn`t expect to see one this close to launch. Palit has just released their own GTX 680 which falls under the brand new JetStream series. We knew that Palit would come to the party quickly with a fancy new variant, but we can honestly say we didn`t think it would be this quickly with the model only officially launching last week."

HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo Overclocked Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 8:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest card to get the IceQ treatment from the team over at HIS comes in the form of the HD 7870 IceQ Turbo. When it comes to HIS cards, this is a model that carries our two favorite words. IceQ that lets us know we`re dealing with a new cooler and Turbo which lets us know we`re dealing with a pre-overclocked card. While we`ll get into more details on the overclock soon, because the Turbo clock on offer from the HIS card was similar to that of the PowerColor PCS+ HD 7870 we`ve just looked at, we figured we`d fire up some overclocking software and see how the new HD 7870 goes in the overclocking department; an area we haven`t looked in yet."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
