News: The Radeon HD 7970 GPU reviewed at TR
     Tue, Jan 03 2012 | 4:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve just posted our comprehensive, gut-busting, in-depth review of the Radeon HD 7970. We`ve included an overview of the revised Southern Islands graphics architecture that explains what makes it tick, and we`ve looked at how the 7970 stacks up against competing high-end graphics cards, both in theory and practice. Our tests include an inside the second analysis of frame latencies in the latest DirectX 11 games, and the results of our analysis may surprise you, regardless of what you`ve read elsewhere. Read on for a distinctive, TR-style take on the most complex GPU ever built:"

Does AMD have a 2304 stream processor GPU in waiting?
     Tue, Jan 03 2012 | 2:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We asked and asked, but a die shot was never given to us for our review - a very non-standard practice for new launches. That started us wondering - was there something AMD was hiding from reviewers about the architecture? Were there some disabled CUs on the 28nm GPU that they had disabled for business, yield or clock speed reasons? Think of what Intel has done with Sandy Bridge-E or what NVIDIA did originally with the GTX 480 GPU."

Triple SLI: Window opened vs. Window closed - Performance comparison @ ocaholic
     Sun, Jan 01 2012 | 9:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many overclockers desperatly wait for winter time. There are several reasons: one might be that they get hardware as christmas present, but much more imoprtant is the fact that it`s cold outside! This means opening the window give your overclocking rig quite a performance boost and a lot more overclocking headroom. Today were going to check what`s possible when outside temperature is zero degree celcius and you open a window one by one meter in size. For this purpose we use our triple SLI test rig which mistreated quite a few times in the past weeks. And honestly, if we wouldn`t answer this questions, the world would instantly stop turing!"

HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ Video Card @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Dec 30 2011 | 9:38P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The holiday season is fast approaching and there is still no official word on the next generation 28nm GPU`s other than TSMC starting volume production. What does that mean? Well, it looks like we will be waiting until next year before any more new video cards from either camp are released. This stop gap between generations gives AIB partners a chance to tweak and perfect their designs and introduce some different models to keep the market active. Today Benchmark Reviews will be looking at the HIS Radeon HD6870 IceQ 1GB, a modern video card with a classic HIS design. As aftermarket designs go, this looks like a real beast of a card but there is no factory overclock on this model. The cooler is a mixture of the HIS IceQ X fin array and a shroud that looks similar to a reference card shroud with a twist. HIS have dubbed the radial fan a `Black Hole Impeller` because it is able to draw in air from both sides as it is raised slightly from the PCB. The main question is what difference will this make to operating temperatures and overclocking potential; and that is exactly what we intend to find out..."

Sapphire 6970 FleX Battlefield 3 Edition @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Dec 29 2011 | 11:59P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What`s so special about this Sapphire 6970 FleX BF3 Edition? Well, it supports Eyefinity out of the box with no need for expensive DisplayPort or adapters. That capability is built directly into the card itself, independent of the monitors being used. This means that any monitors with DVI ports can now run Eyefinity."

Battlefield 3 Gaming and Performance Review on NVIDIA GTX 500 Series Video Cards@Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Dec 29 2011 | 10:18A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Battlefield 3 is the latest installment in the franchise, powered by a new Frostbite engine. Unlike other modern warfare shooters, Battlefield 3 boasts bone-crushing physics effects and an emphasis on team-work when it comes to multiplayer gaming. Much like its predecessors, Battlefield 3 gives players the opportunity to launch into the battlefield on foot, on a tank, on a jet, or any of the twenty other vehicles parked on the map. Paired with the latest in DirectX11 technology, players can enjoy highly detailed large-scale outdoor maps unlike anything ever seen in a video game. Battlefield 3 is the one of a kind gaming experience that PC gamers have been asking for and rightly deserve."

Sapphire Low-Profile Radeon HD 6670 @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Dec 28 2011 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That is when the new low profile Sapphire HD Radeon 6670 comes into play. This card is capable of playing back awesome video with the clearest of audio and at the same time can even game (well to a certain extent). But what most of you will like is what I mention in the first sentence of this paragraph, this card is a low profile single slot unit that can be placed in almost any rig."

VisionTek Radeon HD 6850 Video Card @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 9:38P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of us love to look at the latest reviews of the most hardcore PC components and keep apprised of what`s going on up in the clouds, but when it comes down to it, we are going to end up buying something that is a little more affordable. So while reviews of those items are certainly interesting to read, it`s nice to see something a little more mid-ranged. I`m talking about something that will play the latest video games, even though I might have to turn down some of the settings. In this article, Benchmark Reviews is taking a look at the VisionTek 900339 Radeon HD 6850graphics card. The newest series of GPUs has been out for a while now, and we`ve seen the performance charts. We don`t expect any surprises from the VisionTek 900339, but that`s not going to stop us from putting it through its paces and overclocking it. We want to see where the VisionTek Radeon HD 6850 differs from other cards, especially since it sits near the top end of the price range for Radeon HD 6850s."

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2 WIN 2GB DirectX11 Video Card Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 12:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2 WIN combines two 560 Ti cores on a single card. The 560 Ti 2 WIN comes with a slight overclock, running the GF114 cores at 850MHz instead of the stock 822MHz. The memory remains at the same speed of 4008MHz effective. The 2 WIN edition comes with 2GB of DDR5 to utilize. Having two GF114 cores means that there are two GPUs enabled with 384 CUDA cores. All of the Nvidia features remain like 3D Vision, CUDA, DirectX 11, Compute 2.1, OpenGL 4.2, and OpenCL 1.1 support. EVGA features included are a custom heatsink that uses three 70mm fans, EVGA Precision, and EVGA OC Scanner software. Also included is EVGA`s excellent warranty and 24/7 technical support."

Sapphire HD 6670 Low Profile Review
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire HD 6670 provided a decent entry level gaming experience, while also being able to handle all office and media usage effortlessly. As long as maximum quality settings aren`t desired, then this card will game just fine. Operating noise was surprisingly low and the temperatures were great! Overclocking was consistent with full-sized 6670s, with a gain of about 8% core and 15% memory. The packaging was perfect and included all the main peripherals needed."

AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB Graphics Card Review - Tahiti at 28nm
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 9:12A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Southern Islands architecture is the first step from AMD into a much larger world (cue The Force references) outlined by the Fusion System Architecture. For today`s purposes though, the Tahiti GPU clearly takes the lead as the fastest gaming option available to consumers. With 2048 stream processors and 3GB of GDDR5 frame buffer the Radeon HD 7970 is the fastest graphics card you can buy that doesn`t depend on multi-GPU technologies."

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.
