ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini review
     Thu, Sep 19 2013 | 10:12A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,All hail the Mini-ITX form factor, but how about a graphics card that goes along with it ? In this article we review ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU MINI edition, this particular model comes with a dual-slot DirectCU Mini cooling solution that will fit small form factor based motherboards like Mini ITX up-to 17cm. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with lower temperatures than reference GTX 760."

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB GHz Edition Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Sep 18 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let me start off by saying that I had a bad experience with an ATI based video card many years ago. I made the switch to NVIDIA and never thought about giving ATI/AMD another chance. When I was offered the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB GHz Edition video card for review, I was apprehensive. I have heard that the AMD Radeon HD graphics cards had become much more stable and that the more well-known manufacturers had increased the quality of the components from when I last tried them. Could my mind be changed to support AMD Radeon cards after my bad experience years ago? Read on to find out!"

MSI GTX 780 N780 Lightning Video Card Review @ HiTech Legion
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GTX 780 Lightning graphics card is the newest offering, targeted at achieving the highest overclocks possible. The MSI GTX 780 Lightning offers a graphics card with the GK110 GPU at its core, with MSI`s TriFrozr Thermal design. The TriFrozr design offers a cooling solution with three PWM fans that can be independently controlled. The architecture also includes an all-digital PWM control and triple level signals to show load using different colors. The overclocking features don`t stop there. Two separate BIOS chips are present on the 10 layer PCB. One is tuned for gaming performance out of the box, while the other is specifically tuned and unlocked for LN2 overclocking. In addition the card has 16 GPU phases of power and three memory phases, and the ability to add a GPU Reactor behind the GPU for more overclocking stability. The GPU reactor is designed to offer up to 300% more power capacity and to stabilize power noise. The Lightning card doesn`t skimp on quality either utilizing MSI`s Military class 4 components, consisting of DrMOS 4, CopperMOS, Hi-c CAP, Super Ferrite Core, and Dark Solid Caps./"

EVGA GTX 780 Classified Review @ Hardware Canucks

Palit GeForce GTX 780 Super JetStream Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When deciding on a high end GPU there are two obvious options in the market at the moment, the GTX 770 and Radeon 7970 GHz Edition. Both offer a level of performance which will suit a decent budget but there is always that bit of doubt around what that bit of extra cash might get us. Today we look to answer that as we take an overclocked GTX 770 and 7970 GHz for a spin and compare them to an overclocked GTX 780 Super JetStream from Palit. Does that step up give us enough reason to stretch the budget and what will the GTX 780 give us in some of the latest games like Crysis 3, Grid 2 and Bioshock Infinite?"

Powercolor Devil HD 7870 Review
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That being said the Devil is the first card in this round of comparisons to hit a 1300+MHz core clock stably. For an almost 19% boost in clock speed, the effort is worth the time commitment to grab that extra free performance. To help you out in that endeavor, PowerColor has its own overclocking utility called Powerup Tuner that is fully functional and features a Devil series skin to add some continuity to the branding. For the most part this utility does everything you will need it to with one exception for me; the maximum voltage that could be applied was in the 1.285v range while other utilities would allow 1.30v. Not a major faux pas as I have seen much worse. It does give the user that is afraid of kicking up the voltage to high some sense of security."

PowerColor HD 7870 2GB DEVIL Video Card Review @ HiTech Legion
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD 7870 DEVIL is not the spawn of arcane knowledge and the occult unlike the first PowerColor DEVIL video card. The HD 7870 DEVIL instead is hewn from the familiar Pitcairn XT GPU as if it is just like any other HD 7870 but upon closer inspection, it is more than that. Draped in a cold black and blood red shroud, the PowerColor HD 7870 DEVIL has 1100MHz core clock with 1250MHz memory clock that can be pushed significantly further with additional voltage without burning out due to an unholy trinity of guardian fans that ensure its survival. The PowerColor HD 7870 DEVIL can blend in and mate with other HD 7870 to increase its power further through CrossFire breeding. Should the the HD 7870 DEVIL fail at any time within 2-years of existence, PowerColor will re-spawn an identical HD 7870 DEVIL to take its place."

1.html,Check out the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Classified while we review it. The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Classified comes factory overclocked for you, has the latest revision of the ACX cooler and can be connected towards an external POD called the EVBOT. All in all definitely stuff to check out we`d think."

MSI GeForce GTX 780 3GB Lightning Graphics Card Review
     Sat, Sep 07 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GTX 780 Lightning isn`t a graphics card that just any gamer should buy. With a hefty price tag of $750 and a feature set that requires some overclocking experience to really take advantage of, MSI is hoping to once again attract the hardcore enthusiast that wants the best of the best. With a completely redesigned TriFrozr cooler with 7 SuperPipes and Military Class 4 components on top of an enhanced power delivery design, MSI`s GTX 780 Lightning clearly is among the top graphics cards on the market.

MSI GeForce GTX 760 HAWK @ Bjorn3D
     Sat, Sep 07 2013 | 8:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI with the introduction of the Gaming series set a whole new category for the MSI brand in the marketplace and a very necessary one at that. However there is still a gap to fill when it comes to extreme performance and that is where the GTX 760 HAWK that we are looking at today comes in. Must like the bigger brother Lightning model cards the hawk series is the mainstream performance equivalent for top end OC board offerings. Now with the GTX 760 is uses a GK104 GPU cut down to GTX 760 spec just like any other GTX760 you will find on that market but this is where the similarities end and the fun begins."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 OC V2 Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 12:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte is currently offering three different GeForce GTX 780, one reference, the WindForce3 2.0 and the OverClock 2.0. Today we are going to have a look at the fastest one, the OverClock 2.0. 2.0 indicates the revision of the card, or improved PCB in this case, as the only difference with the previous revision 1.0 lies within the PCB type. The revision 1.0 was equipped with the reference PCB while this one features a custom design. We`re curious to see what the combination of a high factory overclocking and Gigabyte`s WindForce 3X 450W cooler can achieve."
