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."

AMD HD 6990 4GB Dual Graphics Video Card with 3 and 5-Monitor Eyefinity Review
     Fri, Jul 01 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The AMD HD6990 is a dual 2nd-generation DirectX 11 GPU armed with 4GB of GDDR5. The AMD HD6990 is also equipped with 3,072 Stream processors, 64 ROPs and a variable clock speed from 830MHz to 880MHz with the flick of a switch. With two monstrous Cayman XT GPUs, the AMD HD 6990 requires an equally strong cooling solution so it is equipped with a pair of vapor chamber heatsinks with phase-change thermal compounds and a centrally mounted blower-style fan that drives the heat out the back and front of the AMD HD6990."

Palit NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Sonic Platinum Launch Review
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 4:47P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When NVIDIA launched their GTX 550 Ti a couple of months ago as a follow up to the GTX 560 Ti most consumers would have assumed that was it for models that are in the midrange GeForce product stack. As it turns out that isn't the case and in the £75 or so price gap between those two products NVIDIA have found room to place the focus of today's review, the GTX 560 (no Ti). For anyone looking to upgrade their system for 1080p gaming NVIDIA claim this GPU will deliver for less than $199(£150)... let's find out if it does as we take a look at the Palit Sonic Platinum edition of the new GTX 560 in a selection of real world gaming tests mixed with some 3D playback, GPU computing and media tasks."

ASUS HD6990 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two cores will require more power, emit more heat and this usually translates to more noise to keep that heat under control. Previous designs had received negative feedback because the noise the cards make were very loud, often so much so that they were very intrusive when using them for what they were designed for, gaming. The card we have today is of a reference design and as such it remains to be seen whether the cooler has been adapted to create less of a din than previous editions. We will certainly be closely examining the cooler and acoustics of the card to see what innovations, if any, have taken place.

ASUS EAH5550 Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the EAH5550 ASUS has AMD's low end product in its portfolio that comes with PCB layout made by ASUS themselves. This card is based on the RV870 architecture which has been fully reworked for the entry level market. Never the less we're curious how this thing will perform in our benchmark parcours. For a small teaser: this card proves quite decent and overclocking was a lot of fun.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Dirt 3 Edition Video Card Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Like the previous Dirt game, Dirt 2, the latest iteration from Codemasters, Dirt 3, is another big release for AMD. While maybe not quite as big as the second one which saw the implementation of DirectX 11, one would argue that this one could be even bigger because of the rave reviews the game has received, making it not only a game that looks good, but also a game that's good to play. So with the release of another high profile game for AMD, we've seen their partners begin to bundle the game in the form of keys with their video cards. While most companies have just added the bundle to the package, Sapphire has instead chosen to create a "Dirt 3" Edition of the card to coincide with the release. At first I thought the "Dirt 3" Edition was just going to be the same HD 6950 we've seen from Sapphire before, but with the inclusion of Dirt 3. Instead, though, we've got a new cooler on hand that looks like it will hit the spot."

Sapphire 6950 DiRT 3 Edition
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Sapphire Radeon 6950 DiRT 3 Edition graphics card, as you can surmise, comes with an excellent value-added bonus of including a hot new game title with its latest 6950 model. But it also comes with a custom heatsink, promising lower temperatures and noise levels, as we often see from AMD's biggest board partner. We love a great deal as much as anyone, and the combination of a free game, low noise and temperatures on this latest card from Sapphire leaves us very intruigued. Can it live up to expectations? Let's dive in and take a closer look at the Sapphire 6950 DiRT 3 Edition and found out.”

ASUS MATRIX GeForce GTX 580 1536MB Platinum OC’ed Video Card Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Over the last few months we've seen MSI do some wonderful things to the GTX 580, releasing the model into its Lightning series and then during Computex re-releasing the GTX 580 in 3GB form also under the Lightning series; but in this case it was the Lightning Xtreme Edition. Someone else has done something with the GTX 580, but I can't really remember who; it's probably got something to do with the fact we haven't seen it. Anyway, the latest company to go all out with the model is ASUS with it getting the ROG MATRIX treatment. Imagine a facial with an electric sander to make everything smooth. It's big, it's fat, it's got lots of extra buttons and it looks powerful. Today we intend to find out if it performs as good as it looks, because oh does it looks good."

Introducing the Matrox SMD-2 for Large-Scale High-Density IP Video Decoding
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Matrox Graphics Inc. today introduces the Matrox SMD-2 streaming media decoder, a second-generation universal IP video decode solution designed to decode – in parallel – large numbers of network video streams in different resolutions and formats. The ideal building block for large-scale IP video decode applications, each SMD-2 board can simultaneously decode up to 64 QCIF, 16 D1, or 2 HD 1080 streams. By combining multiple SMD-2 boards within a single system, users can decode and display hundreds of IP streams on any video display wall. In light of their newly announced partnership, Matrox Graphics and Trenton are currently working together to engineer a validated system capable of supporting multiple SMD-2 cards within a single chassis, to be available later in the year. SMD-2 is fully integrated with the Matrox PPX Series and will be compatible with the Mura MPX Series later in the summer. With its capacity to cost-effectively support large-scale, high-density IP stream decoding, the Matrox SMD-2 is ideal for use in security surveillance, public security, and critical infrastructure sectors.

In the process of shifting the product lineup to the Radeon HD 6000 series, AMD rebranded the 5770s to 6770s. So nobody should expect a significant difference. Anyhow Sapphire promises some advantages in the Radeon HD 6770 Flex that HT4U.net is exploring in the review.
