GIGABYTE HD7950 Windforce x3 Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 4:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD HD7950 has impressed us thus far with its fantastic performance so when GIGABYTE offered up their Windforce cooled HD7950 we were understandably excited. The Windforce cooler we first saw last year on their GTX560 was held in high acclaim thanks to it`s ability to keep heat at bay thereby allowing higher overclocks while not sounding like a jumbo jet mid take-off. The GIGABYTE HD7950 Windforce cooler however increases the twin fan setup on the heatsink to three. This may seem like overkill as the reference HD7950 is hardly a roasting hot graphics card so it remains to be seen if the custom cooled card from GIGABYTE can raise the benchmark and make use of that extreme cooling design with some extra ordinary overclocks."

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:25A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After spending a couple weeks using the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC 1GB GDDR5 video card (part number GV-R777OC-1GD) we found it to be a great little video card. We like that it is faster, quieter and cooler than the AMD Radeon HD 7770 reference card. The fact that it is also about half an inch shorter is also a plus. At the end of the day there is nothing we could find wrong with this card.."

PowerColor LCS HD7970 3GB
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The overall combined numbers of 1235MHz on the GPU core and 1730MHz on the GDDR5 memory offered the highest marks on both clock speeds combined. To reach the maximum clock speeds, I used MSI's Afterburner Utility with unofficial overclocking enabled so the clock speeds could be adjusted past the limits in the Catalyst Control Center. Since the PowerColor LCS HD 7970 is liquid-cooled, I cranked the voltage up to 1300mv and let it rip. Any lower and the clock speeds would suffer. The higher voltage and frequency only impacted the load temperatures by 2 ºC, coming in at 44 ºC, validating PowerColor's claim to less than a 50 ºC load temperature. By overclocking, there were significant gains to be had in performance in all the games tested, making it a worthwhile endeavor. The clock speed gain over the class leading 1050MHz was 185MHz, or +18%, on the Tahiti core, and 305MHz, or just over +21%, on the GDDR5 memory. This led to improvements in gaming at 5760x1080 of close to 20%; again, well worth the effort. This card was meant to be overclocked and it does quite well."

Diamond Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card tested with Catalyst 12.2
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since we knew that the Catalyst 12.2 drivers weren't far away we figured it was a good chance to look at the driver in a bit more detail than just our typical Catalyst benchmark line up, so that's exactly what we'll be doing today as we see how the Diamond HD 7970 with the series' first WHQL driver goes against the original launch driver we used. Of course there are a few things we need to do before we get into the performance side of things and we see exactly what's going on with the latest AMD driver. Since we haven't looked at the Diamond HD 7970, the first thing we need to do is take a closer look at the bundle to see exactly what's going on."

AMD Radeon HD 7870 and Radeon HD 7850
     Mon, Mar 12 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Therefore it appears that gamers need to be prepared to spend at least $249 on a current generation graphics card to justify upgrading. For those gamers still flaunting a Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards because they skipped the HD 6000 series for something more worthwhile, we now have that something. The Radeon HD 5870 debuted with an MSRP of $380 which makes the much faster Radeon HD 7870 a very attractive prospect at $349.

AMD Radeon HD 7950 On Linux: Southern Islands Isnt Yet A Penguin Holiday
     Mon, Mar 12 2012 | 11:34A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon HD 7900 series were announced at the end of 2011 and since then the Linux support status for this hardware has remained a big question. For the Radeon HD 7000 series Southern Islands GPU launch, they did not send over any hardware samples so Linux consumers have left to be confused over the state of the non-Windows support for AMD`s hardware based on the Graphics Core Next architecture. Fortunately, here is finally an extensive look at the Radeon HD 7000 series on Linux with testing of a Radeon HD 7950."

Targus USB 3.0 Dual-head Video
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the quickest ways to boost productivity in the workplace is by adding more monitors to a workstation. It's a simple enough task unless you're cursed with a lack of available video ports--a plight all too common for laptops and smaller PCs. Today I'll taking an in-depth look at a USB 3.0 answer to this problem, the SuperSpeed Dual Video Adapter from Targus. Can we expect this adapter - powered by the DisplayLink's latest DL-3000 - to be an excellent showcase for what's bound to crop up in a number of USB-driven monitors, projectors and docking stations to be released later this year? Read on to find out.

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.
