Ubisoft changes Anno 2070 DRM after Guru3D critique
     Mon, Jan 30 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past week a news post of ours resulted in a lot of coverage on the web. Long story short -- while we where testing the RTS game Anno 2070 for PC (from Ubisoft) we ran into downright silly DRM copy protection issues. Each time after reinstalling a GeForce graphics card the DRM kicked back in, rendering the game inactivated. And as a policy, three strikes, an you are out. That said and with the VGA performance review posted moments ago we received an email from BlueByte and Ubisoft with a statement that they have changed their Tages DRM copy protection. We are very happy to see that the activation scheme has been changed for anybody and everybody who purchased and is purchasing the game, you may now swap out as many graphics cards as you want.

Anno 2070 VGA Graphics performance review
     Mon, Jan 30 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
history. The franchise decided to jump to the future, 58 years ahead of time. For Anno 2070 the graphics engine has been updated, the game is now DirectX 11 compatible. And as such it is time to throw a couple of graphics cards (well we can't say that nineteen graphics cards are a couple really) at it to see how well the game performs with DX11 cards Anno 2012. Check out the article here.

Sapphire Radeon HD6450 FleX Edition 1GB Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 11:22A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD?s Eyefinity Technology, have you heard of it? I?m sure you have, it?s what powers those multi-display setups that you?ve seen before. These multi-display setups give you massive desktop work-spaces and immersive gaming environments. The thing about getting Eyefinity setup is it can be difficult and confusing, especially if you don?t have the right displays off the bat. To make things easier Sapphire has come out with the FleX series of cards. Each FleX card allows you to plug in and run 3 monitors simultaneously from a single card. Today we will be taking a look at their low-cost solution the Radeon HD6450 FleX Edition."

Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6670 @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6670. This is, among other things a low-profile graphics card capable of being installed in an HTPC with half-height PCI brackets. Coming in at just under $90, this card is inexpensive in terms of the graphics world. I personally would expect to be able to play dated, and non-graphic intensive games with ease, let`s see if the HD 6670 can deliver - but first, lets get Sapphire`s take."

Galaxy GT 520 MDT Review
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 4:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The real benefit of this card from Galaxy is the ability to use up to four 1080p DVI monitors. This feat was not possible with run-of-the-mill Fermi based video cards since they are limited to two monitors from one card. Using Galaxy`s MDT EZY software allows the end user to configure the displays in either split mode where each display has a desktop interface or merged mode where the display is spanned across multiple screens. The software is used in combination with the resolution settings in the operating system to get the optimal resolution for each display. The software is easy to use with little resource overhead. A gaming card it is not, but as a unique addition to the GT 520 line up, the GT 520 MDT from Galaxy offers a low-cost way to create a lot of desktop real estate."

Sapphire HD 7970 3GB Video Cards in CrossFire Overclocked
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 4:14A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far we`ve had some good success when it comes to overclocking which we looked at in our HIS HD 7970 and XFX HD 7970 Black Edition Double Dissipation review. Adding a second card into the mix is known for limiting overclocking ability as cards are placed together and more heat is generated. Those numbers are then amplified due to the added voltage being thrown through the core of each GPU. Since we`ve already looked at the Sapphire HD 7970 in our original CrossFire review, we won`t need to have a look at the card again. Instead we`ll get straight into the testbed setup and quickly cover how we went with the overclock. Once we`ve done that we`ll just get straight into the performance."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB Super Overclock - Last Hurrah for Fermi
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 4:15P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is one of the fastest GTX 580 cards we have ever tested out of the box, though since the release of the AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB card in early January the overall single-GPU performance crown has moved away from the NVIDIA kingdom. By no means does ths make the Gigabyte GTX 580 Super Overclock a bad card (or ANY GTX 580 for that matter) but you need to make the judgment based on pricing and budget more closely now."

Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Cards in 3-Way CrossFireX
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 2:35P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we grab a third card and see what happens when we move to a three way CrossFireX setup. Since we've already looked at the Sapphire card in full detail in our CrossFire review mentioned above, we'll be getting into the performance side of things fairly quickly today. The first thing we need to do is just take a quick look at our testbed, if you've been following our HD 7970 series of content, though, you shouldn't see anything out of the ordinary. Once we've done that we'll move onto the performance of the setup and see how it compares to other HD 7970s we've looked at."

Galaxy's GeForce GT 440
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 2:10P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Galaxy's GeForce GT 440 isn’t designed to be a graphics powerhouse, but it certainly isn't priced like one. It features support for accelerated processing, NVIDIA PureVideo and stereoscopic 3D, but is it still competitive in a entry level market where motherboard IGPs are getting more advanced? Hit our latest value graphics card review!

Sapphire Radeon HD6450 Flex Edition Video Card Review @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 11:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In addition to being a low profile silent media PC ready card, the Sapphire Radeon HD6450 Flex Edition video card also boasts triple DVI monitor support right out of the box. This is impressive for a sub $100 card, But what kind of performance can a $70 card really provide? See why this super cheap card packs features and performance that may just surprise you."

HIS 6670 1GB Fan Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Jan 24 2012 | 11:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the new line up of graphics cards coming from AMD and Nvidia, we can expect some nice price drops on the last generation as both firms and their partners attempt to clear old stock. This means it`s upgrade time whether you`re buying the latest cards or not, but not necessarily just for the high end. Today I`m checking out a card that`s much more at home in an HTPC or low end gaming rig. It`s a dual fan 6670 from HIS with 1GB of onboard memory. Let`s check it out."

CyberPowerPC Shows us Their Black Mamba and NZXT Switch 810 at CES 2012
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our friends at CyberPowerPC were showing some seriously decked-out gaming rigs this year at CES 2012. To be honest, we've always had good experiences with their products here in the lab but the systems on display at CES showcased very impressive build quality, immaculate wire-routing along with impeccable pipe-work for their water cooling setups. On display were several systems, including the rather bad-ass Fang III Series Black Mamba; a monster of a system that's of course super-charged with an over-the-top component configuration. The company was also showcasing a system built with NZXT's just-launched Switch 810 Gaming Chassis.

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.
