HIS HD6970 2GB IceQ MIX (Lucid) Review
     Mon, Aug 08 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what makes this card different then? To put things bluntly, the main attraction of this particular variant of the IceQ family is that this HIS video graphics adapter can be paired with another graphics card. What’s so special about that I hear you ask? Well, up until now, we enthusiasts have had to utilise SLI or Crossfire to pair our GPU’s and even then we were restricted to using cards from the same base manufacturer, NVIDIA or AMD. The difference with the HIS HD6970 2GB Mix is that you can you crossfire the card with another AMD GPU from the same family as per normal Crossfire specifications but (and here's where it gets interesting), you can also Mix it up with an equivalent card from NVIDIA!

GIGABYTE GTX 560 OC Review
     Sun, Aug 07 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX560, specifically the version we have on test today, the Gigabyte GV-N56GOC-1GI has features which you would expect for a NON-Ti card. As you will see on the specifications page of the review, the GTX560 has less shaders than its ti sibling but matching those of the GTX460 (336) yet thanks to the engineers at Gigabyte, this OC (Overclocked) edition has a core clock speed that's slightly higher than the stock GTX560, weighing in at 830MHz on the core coupled with memory clockspeed of 4008MHz on the 1GB of GDDR5 paired with a 256-bit memory interface. Moreover, this is a big increase over the GTX460's 675/3600 GPU/memory speed offering. How this translates to real world performance thought we will have to wait and see but at a glance it appears NVidia have indeed specified this card to perform between its stable mates.

MSI Radeon HD 6670 1GB Overclocked Video Card Review
     Fri, Aug 05 2011 | 4:24P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The HD 6670 is a bit of a funny model for us. Normally it's the kind of model we'd look at once when it launches and then not pay too much attention to it since our launch coverage would cover pretty much all you need to know about it." A little later on, we saw Sapphire release a version under the Ultimate tag which meant it was silent. More interesting, though, was the launch of the Llano platform which brought with it the ability to CrossFire the model with the onboard APU. It was probably the introduction of this which made us all of a sudden start to pay more attention to the HD 6670 again."

ASUS Geforce GTS 450 DirectCU OC 1GB Video Card Review
     Wed, Aug 03 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The GeForce GTS 450 has been around for quite sometime and many people don’t even think about it when they are purchasing a new video card. You have to think though, it does offer substantial performance for little investment, so you can spend most of your cash on other items in your build. Yes of course there are reference GTS 450 cards, but we are more interested in what comes a few months after launch. ASUS has sent us their ENGTS450 DirectCU OC card, which has ASUS’s custom heatsink and is overclocked up to 850 MHz. Let’s take a look…"

Diamond Multimedia Radeon HD 6770 XOC 1GB DX11 Video Card Review
     Wed, Aug 03 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Diamond Multimedia Radeon HD 6770 XOC has those factory overclocks. The 6770 XOC comes with a 50 MHz overclock on both the core and memory over the original stock model. This sets the core at 900 MHz and the memory at 1250MHz. Onboard is 1GB of GDDR5 memory with a maximum bandwidth of 80.0 Gbps. The 6770 XOC still retains all of the stock board's crucial features. The 6770 supports DX 11, OpenGL 3.2, AMD Eyefinity, AMD Crossfire, and AMD HD3D. Inputs include a DVI-I, DVI-DL, HDMI 1.4a, and Display Port. There is also dynamic power management with ATI PowerPlay technology."

HIS Radeon 6970 ICEQ MIX review
     Wed, Aug 03 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HIS released a graphics card with LUCID Hydra embedded in it. What will happen if you MIX their Radeon 6970 ICEQ card with a GeForce GTX 580? HIS took a blue colored PCB, plastered the R6970 GPU and two Gigs of memory on there along with a new model of the ICEQ cooler. Next to that they embedded that LUCID Hydra chip, allowing you to run say an NVIDIA graphics card alongside this card and in theory increase your game performance.

ASUS Radeon HD 6970 DirectCU II Video Card Review
     Wed, Aug 03 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today the particular card we're looking at is the ASUS HD 6970 DirectCU II one. I've quickly become a fan of the DirectCU II cooler for the simple fact it's proven to do an extremely good job when it comes to giving us low temperatures at low noise levels. The biggest gripe people have with the model is that it's of course a triple slot card. If you're someone who find themselves happy with the onboard equipment like networking and audio, then the HD 6970 DirectCU II taking up an extra slot might not be all that much of a problem to you. So with that said, let's look at what's going on with this card today by starting with the package. Once that's done we'll look at the card and see just what the DirectCU II cooler looks like before checking out the specifications of the card and then get into the performance side of things."

Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Multiview Video Card Review
     Sun, Jul 31 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GeForce GTX 560 is a strange GPU, in the sense that its manufacturer, NVIDIA, doesn't set default clock rates for it. Therefore, it is up to the video card manufacturer to decide which clocks to use. The GeForce GTX 560 Multiview from Zotac works internally at 820 MHz, accesses memory at 4 GHz through a 256-bit interface, and has its processing engines working at 1,640 MHz - the same clock rates used on the standard GeForce GTX 560 Ti. The only difference between the two is the number of shader engines (336 vs. 384 on the Ti version). The Multiview model from Zotac allows you to connect up to three video monitors, a feature not available on regular models."

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.
