MSI R6850 Cyclone PE / OC Graphics Card
     Sun, Jul 10 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Discrete computer graphics are one of the toughest markets to keep current with. New graphics cores are released on a pretty frequent basis from both ATI and NVIDIA and with naming schemes that change nearly as often, it can be difficult to determine where each card stands in relation to others in the same price range. Today we will be taking a look at the MSI R6850 PE / OC graphics card, a mid-range GPU that was launched at the end of last year. Codenamed Barts, this GPU is built on a 40nm process with support for DirectX 11 & Open GL 4.0. Other notable features include HDMI 1.4a & DisplayPort 1.2 support as well as AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology and CrossfireX support."

Sapphire's HD 6450 comes with a low-profile design, passive heatsink and native full-size HDMI. Together with AMD's UVD 3 video encode acceleration that provides excellent video decode capabilities this could well be your next HTPC card.

"The HD6970 is a very close relative to the HD6950, but the HD6970 has all the performance of the Cayman core unlocked and ready to go. So then, what's the impact on performance? Let's find out!"

AMD Radeon HD 6990
     Tue, Jul 05 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a few months since the AMD Radeon HD 6990 initially launched. Since that time, a number of AMD’s board partners have launched their own Radeon HD 6990 cards, but as is typically the case with the first wave of products based on a new GPU, they all conform to AMD’s reference design, save for a water-cooled card from PowerColor. While most of the Radeon HD 6990 cards on the market today are fundamentally very similar, we thought it would be a good idea to check out a retail-ready 6990 using AMD’s latest drivers to see how well the card performs (and behaves) with updated software. To that end, we got our hands on an HIS Radeon HD 6990 card and have put it up against NVIDIA’s best to see how things sake out in a handful of games and applications using the latest drivers available at press time for both...

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950

Posted by: STAFF
"Have you been wondering how the AMD Radeon HD 6900 "Cayman" graphics cards are running under Linux? After all, Cayman is quite different from the rest of the Radeon HD 6000 "Northern Island" GPUs and its open-source Linux support came much later. There is no reason to wonder any longer as Sapphire has sent over their Radeon HD 6950 DIRT 3 Special Edition graphics card, which we have now put through our arsenal of tests under Ubuntu Linux."

Posted by: STAFF
You might remember our review of the original Iogear GUWAVKIT some time back. You might also remember some of the gripes we had about the product. Well, it looks like the folks at Iogear are giving this product another shot with an aptly named successor. Does the newer Iogear Wireless HD Computer to TV Kit (GUWAVKIT2) address some of the complaints that we had about its predecessor? What new features and functions does it bring to the table? Is it something that you should consider adding to your home theater arrangement? Let’s dive in and find out.

NVIDIA NF200 x16/x16 vs. Intel x8/x8 P67 Performance Analysis
     Mon, Jul 04 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Unlike most performance motherboards that by default carry only an x8 / x8 setup when SLI or CrossFire X is used, the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme offers us the NF200 chip to add more PCI-E lanes to the board. Over the last few years we've seen companies implement the chip to boards to help move the default SLI or CrossFire X setup from x8 / x8 which is offered via the Intel chipset, to x16 / x16 via the NF200 chip. When you move away from a two card setup and into a three card one, boards without the NF200 chip would run x8 / x8 / x4, while with the NF200 we're able to achieve x16 / x8 / x8 which when having so much power on hand, is extremely appreciated. ASUS do it a little differently, though, and they do it in a way that has confused people. On the Maximus IV Extreme and Extreme-Z, their P67 and Z68 boards, by default they offer x8 / x8 via the Intel chipset. It isn't until you add a third card into the mix that the NF200 chip comes in handy, because in that situation we get a x8 / x16 / x16 setup."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6750 1GB Video Card Review
     Mon, Jul 04 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we will be taking a look at a $100 video card that sits between the Barts and Turks chipsets from AMD. This of course fills the gap between the two and makes for a good lower to mid-range card that will get you in to the DirectX 11 game and provide you with some great features. The card I am talking about is the Radeon HD 6750. The card we received from Sapphire is identical to the reference AMD version so it has a core clock of 700 MHz, memory clock of 1150 MHz, 720 stream processors, and support for up to 5 displays. Let’s check it out!"

Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate Edition 1GB DDR5 DX 11 Video Card Review
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of those products is the Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate Edition. The 6670 Ultimate includes two special features that differ from a traditional 6670. Those being the "Ultimate" passive cooling, and a key to Dirt 3. Under the hood the 6670 Ultimate is no different from a stock version. The core clock speed is set at 800MHz while the memory speed is set at 1000Mhz. Onboard is 1 GB of DDR5 memory. The 6670 comes with 480 stream processors and a 40 nm chip. The interface includes a single HDMI, Display Port, and Dual-Link DVI input. All of the usual 6000 series features apply such as DX 11, Eyefinity, OpenGL 4.1, UVD3, and AMD App acceleration."

Radeon HD 2900
     Sat, Jul 02 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is a big deal for AMD. While they have had trouble keeping up with Intel on the CPU side, we can see that they have had no problems staying ahead with graphics. Their push towards heterogeneous computing is also shared with NVIDIA, and their combined efforts towards utilizing this functionality will benefit both in the long run. Intel is still more CPU-centric, but we are starting to see them taking a larger interest in this technology. The cancelled Larabee project may have been misguided in terms of addressing the gaming and graphics market, but the parallel computing ramifications of this part and its extreme programmability hint at things to come."

DiRT 3 GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Fri, Jul 01 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As one of the first games to take advantage of DirectX 11, we've been using Dirt 2 to benchmark graphics cards since its arrival in late 2009. Although it's been a crucial part of our testbed, Dirt 2 isn't quite as taxing as it was when the first DX11 cards arrived. With Crysis 2 dissapointingly restricted to DX9 and few other knee-buckling games on the immediate horizon, we've been eagerly awaiting the next iteration of Codemaster's racing series. The company answered our prayers last week, launching Dirt 3 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Developed with the latest (v2.0) EGO game engine, Dirt 3 is a spectacular looking racing game with some surprisingly high, but also incredibly vague recommended system requirements. Codemasters recommends that you play with an AMD Phenom II or Intel Core i7 processor and an AMD Radeon HD 6000 series graphics card, but fails to mention specific models or anything at all from Nvidia. Meanwhile, the minimum requirements say you can scrape by with a paltry Athlon 64/Pentium D and HD 2000/GeForce 8000 class graphics. While it's nice that gamers with five year-old machines can play Dirt 3, we're more interested in knowing what it takes to experience the game with all its visual splendor. As usual we've compiled the performance of over 20 graphics cards, all DX11 capable, at several different resolutions.

HIS 6870 IceQ X Turbo X Video Card Review
     Fri, Jul 01 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the same high-performing cooler, the HIS 6870 IceQ X Turbo X should be remarkably similar to the HIS 6950 IceQ X Turbo X reviewed previously. The mid-range 6870 should run cool and quiet while sporting hefty overclocks like the high-end cards."

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.
