Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB OC Edition Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Mar 04 2012 | 8:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to overclocking the SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC Edition was a joy to overclock. The AMD `Tahiti` core is built on the 28nm manufacturing process and we have found the new Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture very overclocking friendly. Utilizing the SAPPHIRE TriXX overclocking utility we were able to hit 1185MHz on the core and 1600MHz on the memory. This is a 48% clock frequency increase on the core clock and the GDDR5 memory was blazing along at 6400MHz (effective)..."

Posted by: STAFF
Without much hype and big promises AMD launched a graphics accelerator that not only took its place in the company’s product lineup, but also called in questions about the existence of three other graphics cards in the family. Our today’s review will unveil which graphics cards these are and why it happened in the first place.

MSI Graphics Card Division Interview: Alex Chang Takes our Qs
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What other extra features are you pursuing with the Afterburner utility for overclocking and monitoring? At this time, it?s mostly just ensuring support for the latest GPUs being launched. MSI Afterburner is definitely the best overclocking utility on the market for video cards, and users love the intuitive and simple interface. It should be noted that a recent GPU review on another site used MSI Afterburner to accomplish its impressive 30%+ overclocking feat, simply because the utility provided by that GPU maker did not support overvoltage. Afterburner does everything at no cost!"

[Tech ARP] The NVIDIA Ninja Graphics Tech Report
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:27P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a rather long hiatus, NVIDIA has finally launched their Kepler microarchitecture and its flagship graphics card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680. Amongst Kepler`s many new features and improvements is the NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology, which gives the GeForce GTX 680 a further boost in its performance by dynamically overclocking it for apps that aren`t so graphics intensive. However, many gamers are wondering - why would you need to further overclock the GeForce GTX 680 for games that aren`t graphics intensive? The GeForce GTX 680 should have no problem delivering frame rates in excess of 60 fps for such games. So there is really no need for GPU Boost. Well, apparently, NVIDIA has something up their sleeves for Kepler-based graphics cards - the NVIDIA Ninja Graphics Technology!"

MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB OC Edition Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we moved away from the single GPU performance via the XFX HD 7770 Black Edition S Super Overclocked 1GB and checked out the CrossFire performance via Sapphire we saw a bit of light at the end of the tunnel thanks to some awesome CrossFire scaling. The issue continued to be the price of the setup, though. With some strong overclocks out of the box, we wonder what kind of overclocking potential we have with the model. Today we`ll be finding that out exactly via the help of the MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB OC Edition video card. There are of course a few things we need to do before we cover the overclocking side of things."

MSI Radeon HD 7950 Twin Frozr III 3GB Overclocked Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering we`ve seen the company jump fairly quick into the Twin Frozr cooling setup, we figure it was simply because they were hard at work making something that was going to stand out. The Twin Frozr cooler has always been one of our favorite coolers, especially if you`re looking exclusively at dual slot cards. How`s the beloved Twin Frozr III cooler go with the new 28nm HD 7950, though? Well, there`s only one way to find out and we want to make sure we can see what it`s really made out of which can only be done one way, overclocking!"

XFX Radeon HD 7870 Black Edition 2GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:22P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Black Edition series from XFX has served us extremely well since the launch of the new HD 7000 series this year. We saw XFX come out strong with the HD 7970 version which was then followed up with the HD 7950 version. After that we saw the HD 7770 get the same treatment, but unfortunately the HD 7770 on a whole hasn`t been our favorite model due to the current price point it hits at. Today it`s time to check out the HD 7870 version of the Black Edition card and see how it goes."

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC WindForce review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We test the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC (WindForce) edition. It's a fully fetched R7970 on a customized PCB, it comes factory overclocked for you and next to that they applied their popular WindForce cooler, the one that has a cool number of three active fans. The results are pretty impressive as you'll find out, that factory overclock is boils down to a default clock frequency of 1000 MHz on the GPU core. Next to that the WindForce cooler is able to keep the product under 65 Degrees C, and that's under full load and stress.

XFX R7770 Black Edition S Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the XFX Black Edition. With an improved over-stock clockspeed of 1120MHz on the core (120MHz faster than reference HD7770) and a huge boost on the memory clockspeed to 1300MHz (5200MHz effective), the Black Edition `S` (Super Overclock) arrives pre-overclocked which should give the card a fair boost in performance."

ASUS Radeon HD 7770 DirectCU 1GB GDDR5 Video Card Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD 7770 DirectCU video card is ASUS` offering for the Cape Verde XT mainstream GPU line. The ASUS HD 7770 DirectCU video card uses a custom cooling solution that is 20% cooler and quieter compared to reference designs. The 28nm Cape Verde GPUs like the ones on the ASUS HD 7770 DirectCU also redefine efficient power consumption, even in CrossfireX mode through AMD PowerTune and ZeroCore power technologies. Equipped with a DVI port, an HDMI port, and a pair of mini-DisplayPorts, the ASUS HD 7770 DirectCU video card supports AMD Eyefinity 2.0 with up to four displays. Like most DirectCU video cards from ASUS, the HD 7770 DirectCU model comes slightly overclocked at 1020MHz, 20MHz higher than the reference AMD design./////"

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950 3072MB Review
     Wed, Feb 29 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD ended 2011 on a high note, unleashing the market's fastest graphics card (single-GPU) and beating its adversary to the next-generation GPU yet again. Conveniently enough, AMD also offers a potentially valid alternative to its flagship with its Radeon HD 7950, which is essentially a lower-specced and lower-priced version of the HD 7970. The HD 7950 is set at $419 for the 1536MB version, while the full 3072MB variant is $449. Although it's currently possible to find a 3GB model for $449, you can expect to pay closer to $500. Gigabyte has redesigned the PCB and included an upgraded cooler that is meant to lower temperatures and improve overclocking. Considering the HD 7970's respectable performance, we expect a solid showing from the HD 7950.

ASUS Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 Video Card Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Feb 29 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 video card requires less power than previous generation mainstream video cards. The ASUS Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 does not need any additional 75W PCI Express PSU connectors and draws all the power it requires from the PCI-E x16 slot. ASUS gave the HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 a slight bump in core clock to 820MHz and provides further performance tuning enhancements via GPU Tweak, a software bundled in the driver CD. Equipped with a full-sized HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI port, the ASUS Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 is Eyefinity 2.0 capable, supporting multiple displays for gaming or productivity.///"

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.
