HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo edition review
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 3:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo edition. With this card they took the new Tahiti XT2 and redesigned the R7970 board from ground up. though very long the end result is a 31cm PCB with mane power phases and optimizations. Fun to see are the voltage and FAN monitor LED options. Most impressive however is the sheer amount of monitor connectors HIS injected into this product, four DisplayPort connectors, one HDMI and a DVI connector. If needed you can go for Eyefinity6. Oh did I mention already that the factory set boost clock frequency is 1180 MHz ? Read the full review here"

REVIEW: HIS 7970 X IceQ X2 @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 3:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We love a good battle between graphics card company titans, especially when the consumer benefits from improved technology and features. And that`s exactly what we`re looking at today, in the form of the HIS 7970 X. Not only does this HIS 7970 X come with a Turbo overclock among the highest on the market, it also sports the company`s latest IceQ X2 custom cooler. And if history is any indication, we expect very big things from this card, as HIS typically produces some very cool-running Radeon cards. The 7970 X also has a couple surprises in store for those wanting Eyefinity gaming out of the box, up to Eyefinity 6 in fact. It`s a very special premium graphics card, but the question is: Can the HIS 7970 X beat the GTX 680? Let`s find out."

Quad-Core ODROID-X Battles NVIDIA Tegra 3
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 10:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While not as popular as NVIDIA`s Tegra 3 ARM SoC, the Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 found on cheaply priced ODROID-X can actually outperform the quad-core NVIDIA ARM processor. Here are benchmarks of the $129 USD ODROID-X benchmarked against the NVIDIA Tegra 3 reference tablet and a PandaBoard ES running the Texas Instruments OMAP4460."

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II Top @ ocaholic
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 9:32A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Step by step nVidia is launching its Kepler GK104 line-up. First there was the GTX 680, then the 670 and now there is the GTX 660 Ti which is in fact a GTX 670 with a memory bandwidth of 192 Bit instead of 256 Bit. In this review we are going to test not only the performance of the GTX 660 Ti but also the custom version from ASUS, the GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II Top that features a factory overclocking of +157 MHz, a custom PCB design and a DirectCU II v2 cooler. The manufacturer itself claims that this graphics card is kickass and well, we will see!"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Overclocked Roundup - EVGA Galaxy MSI and Zotac
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 11:55A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti is a great GPU, and as such we found all four of these retails cards to be worthy of purchases. If you already bought one and it`s on the way you really don`t need to worry about any kind of returns. You`ll be happy with the performance. That being said, the Zotac AMP! Edition gets my nod as the best of the bunch with its higher GPU clock speeds, and overclocked memory speeds resulting in an out-of-box experience that is a little better than the rest."

PowerColor HD 7950 3GB Boost State Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 10:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s Boost BIOS for the HD 7950 was launched amid a fair amount of controversy but retail cards are now available and in this review, we take PowerColor`s HD 7950 Boost State out for a spin.  Does it have what it takes to compete against what NVIDIA has to offer?  More importantly, is this new card really worth its $50 premium over the GTX 660 Ti it was meant to upset? "

Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB Low Profile Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 9:20A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/ /The Sapphire HD 7750 1GB low profile graphics card is a full featured Radeon 7700 series card. Sapphire has built the HD 7750 low profile card with a single slot cooler, targeting small form factor systems. Thanks to the single slot design, it can easily fit in systems as small as mini-ITX cases. The card only needs the 75W of power provided by the PCI-E slot, it does not require any additional power from the PSU. The fan on the cooler features a ball bearing design to provide a long life. This HD 7750 has a core clock speed of 800MHz with 1GB of memory clocked at an effective 4500MHz./"

Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 680 Black Series Accelero Hybrid 4GB Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Sep 02 2012 | 9:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Getting put through its paces today is the Inno3d iChiLL Black Edition GTX 680, with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. It is factory overclocked to 1120 Mhz, and has an aftermarket hybrid liquid / air cooler attached. The cooler itself is manufactured by Asetek, branded by Arctic, and then partnered with the inno3d card. Claiming to be virtually silent whilst many times more efficient than the reference cooler. If all goes well this card should be quite the performer. Follow us through the review as we benchmark, overclock, and generally beat the card into submission to reach our conclusion."

PowerColor to Launch Dual GPU HD 7990 Very Soon? @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Sep 01 2012 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hardware Canucks? web of industry contacts has been abuzz today with information that PowerColor could be launching a supposed dual HD 7970 card named the HD 7990 as early as tomorrow, at a price of $999. While there may still be some confusion among industry sources, after a certain amount of poking and prodding, certain bits of information began to coalesce. First and foremost, PowerColor?s HD 7990 will be a ground up custom design which means there won?t be a reference version available to purchase nor will availability be widespread. We?re actually hearing about the possibility of less than 500 cards worldwide, some sources put the number at a mere 200. This lack of concerted availability is right in line with other custom dual GPU cards like the ASUS Ares and Sapphire HD 4850 X2, as is the astronomical price. At this point, Hardware Canucks can?t be certain about the PowerColor HD 7990?s specifications but logic dictates that it will have 6GB of GDDR5 memory (3GB per GPU) and two full Tahiti XT cores with 2084 Stream Processors each. Naturally, a large-scale custom heatsink will ensure this card runs relatively cool. "

Posted by: STAFF
Need a new videocard? Then stay tuned for this review, we are going to take a look at a HD7770 from Sapphire. This is a lower midrange card that you can pick up for around 150$; we don't know what to expect, but what we do know is that we are going to run this thing through ultra and even higher settings in our game benchmarks.

Inno3D GeForce GTX 660 Ti iChill 3GB review
     Sat, Sep 01 2012 | 9:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we`ll look at the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from Inno3D, it`s their all new GeForce GTX 660 Ti iCHILL version and to date is one of the most impressive graphics cards in the 660 Ti range we have tested. It`s factory overclocked, customized and custom cooled. Pretty much I fell a little in love with this product, as it really is THAT good. Read the full review here"

NVIDIA SLI: GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs GTX 670 @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Aug 31 2012 | 10:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in May (2012) NVIDIA released their $400 GeForce GTX 670 video card, securing the number two position in their single-GPU product stack. Just three short months later, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card arrived to market and filled store shelves at the $300 price point. With a substantial $100 price difference between these two product, consumers might (incorrectly) presume there`s a significant difference in hardware or performance. To the surprise of many, the GeForce GTX 670 and GTX 660 Ti are nearly the same card. Both feature identical 28nm NVIDIA `Kepler` GK104 graphics processors, complete with 1344 CUDA cores all clocked to identical 915 MHz core and 980 Boost speeds. Additionally, the GTX 670 and GTX 660 Ti also feature the exact same 2GB GDDR5 video memory buffer, clocked to 1502 MHz on both cards. The only physical difference between these two products resides in the memory subsystem: GeForce GTX 670 receives four 64-bit controllers (256-bit total bandwidth) while GeForce GTX 660 Ti is designed with three memory controllers (192-bit bandwidth). So does this amount to any real differences in video game performance?"
