HIS Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card Review
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 9:44A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the launch of any new GPU we always try to make an effort to put a reference based video card up for testing as it`s the best model to set a baseline for what we`re dealing with when it comes to a new model. At the same time, though, we be fair and in a first come first serve basis the XFX HD 7950 Black Edition Double Dissipation 3GB was the first to arrive at our labs and not only did it carry with itself an aftermarket cooler, but also an out of the box overclock. Today, though, we take a step back and look at a Radeon HD 7950 from HIS that carries with it what should be the reference cooler along with the standard reference clocks. Of course before we get into the performance side of things there are a few other areas we need to look at."

AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card Overclocked
     Tue, Feb 07 2012 | 9:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Because we`ve already looked at a reference clocked card it seems completely pointless to turn around and benchmark the AMD HD 7950 in exactly the same way as we know that performance is going to be almost identical outside a bit of fluctuation. For that reason we`ll be taking the time to overclock the new model and see just what kind of performance we`re able to get out of a standard HD 7950. What`s even better is that the new Beta 11 of MSI Afterburner brings with it voltage adjustment for the new HD 7950 which means we`ll be able to get a true idea of overclocking performance. Before we cover the overclocking side of things, there are a couple of things we need to do beforehand."

XFX HD 7970 Black Edition Double Dissipation 3 GB Review
     Mon, Feb 06 2012 | 11:55A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Keep in mind, the base clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the core and 1425 MHz on the memory are already sizable increases over the default clock speeds. However, XFX has added their Double Dissipation cooling to increase the overclocking potential of their Black Edition HD 7970. As a result, the card responded well to voltage tweaking and a further boost in the clock speeds to 1177 MHz on the Tahiti core and 1652 MHz on the GDDR5 memory. Clock speeds above 1.2 GHz on the core were possible in some games, but not the entire test suite - Dirt 3 just would not show love for a core speed that high."

Galaxy MDT GeForce GT 520 Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Feb 06 2012 | 9:27A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MDT series (multiple display technology) not only helps NVIDIA compete with AMD`s feature set in the high-end market but also allows Galaxy to sell a card like the MDT GeForce GT 520 for a reasonable price, offering support for up to four monitors for multi-tasking consumers and businesses. The only thing that would have us recommend this product any higher would be a lower price, getting closer to the rest of the field in terms of graphical capability."

Radeon HD 7950 Overclock Guide
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We take a Radeon HD 7950 overclock it the normal way and then voltage tweaked. So that way we will demonstrate not one, but two maximum overclock conditions alongside TDP, heat, noise and performance levels. You will notice that if you go for long lifespan a long-lived card that overclocking the old fashioned way will not disappoint. A good GHz on the GPU (default = 800 MHz) is certainly something you can achieve. However voltage tweaking will bring you towards another level alright, roughly 1150 MHz

Zotac GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores @ Hardwareoverclock.com
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted another videocard review. Last week we have taken a look at the Zotac GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores. The Gen2 of the GTX 560 Ti is a secret tip. The performance is better, the overclocking performance is also awesome. Is this the new price/performance tip?

Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB OC Video Card in CrossFire
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 3:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The big issue we knew we would run into at the launch of the HD 7950 was getting two cards that would carry the same cooler because AMD had given its partners the chance to do whatever they wanted when it came to the fan this time around. Thanks to Sapphire, though, we had the opportunity to get a pair of HD 7950s that we knew would carry the same cooler making it the perfect setup for CrossFire testing. Since we haven`t looked at these cards yet the first thing we need to do is check out the package."

XFX HD 7950 Black Edition featuring Double Dissipation Review
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

This is the latest card from AMD and it’s in their new 7000 line that features their all new 28nm manufacturing process. These cards have proven to be incredibly powerful cards and this one shouldn’t be much different. It’s not quite as powerful as their 7970 card, but it should still be able to post some great benchmark scores and frame rates. This is also XFX Black Edition version that features their Double Dissipation technology. We’ll see how well this design is able to dissipate heat and reduce noise.


Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire review 2 and 3-way
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:41P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have three Radeon HD 7950 cards in house -- anyone smells Crossfire ? We'll setup these three cards up in multi-GPU mode (two and three-way) clock them standard and test multi-GPU performance -- taking it to the next level, multi-GPU gaming. As if you figured just one card would be interesting, you have no idea what's coming at you with two and three cards. Have a peek at the offering, and then march onward into the review, hihoo Tahiti PRO

PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 PCS+ review
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:41P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor is the first in our line-up of R7950 reviews with a customized model. It is the PCS version that clocks in at a cool 880 MHz on the graphics core with it's memory clocked default at an effective data rate of 5000 MHZ. Armed witha custom cooler it is silent, and even cooler compared to the reference model.

Three AMD Radeon HD 7950 Articles
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:41P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is time for the second product based of the series 7900 though, the Radeon HD 7950 launches today. AMD took the Tahiti XT GPU sliced away some shader units, clocked it a notch slower and planted it onto a new PCB lined up with a new cooler. Overall the R7950 will not disappoint, good performance, impressive power consumption and great heat and noise levels. But will a 400 EUR pricetag however justify this product ?

Sapphire HD 7950 OC Graphics Card at Modders-Inc
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the HD 7970 already claiming the King of the Hill title, you know that the title comes a tall price tag. So if you are like me and know you can get some of that awesome speed and features for less money then you need to look at the SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC.

PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our launch coverage of the Radeon HD 7950 continues with a three-way roundup of cards from PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX. Unlike the reference model we just reviewed, these cards get all the fancy fixings for an additional $30-50 at most compared to AMD's stock offering. They're definitely making something good even better, but how much better? Hit our roundup to find out

AMD Radeon HD 7950 Tahiti Pro DirectX 11 GPU Review
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:39P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the time of the Radeon HD 7970’s announcement, we knew the Radeon HD 7950 would be based on the same GPU and that it would arrive a few weeks after the 7970, but its final specifications and price point hadn’t been disclosed. As it turns out, we’ve had a couple of the cards in-house for a little while now and can finally reveal all of the juicy details. AMD has also provided a fresh set of drivers which reportedly enhance the performance of the 7900-Series cards, so we recorded another set of scores with the 7970 using the updated drivers to show how much additional performance AMD was able to wring out of its newest GPU in the few weeks since we last took a look at it...

Radeon HD 7950 isn't exactly mid-range either
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 1:39P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Radeon HD 7970's kid brother isn't some pint-sized runt, as this single GPU bad boy still packs one mean punch. Yet at $449, the Radeon HD 7950 isn't exactly mid-range either. The HD 7950 takes us to round two for AMD's GCN architecture, now hit our review to see how it stacks against NVIDIA's best.

Nouveau For A $10 NVIDIA Graphics Card
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 11:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article is a look at the state of the open-source Nouveau Gallium3D driver on low-end NVIDIA GeForce graphics hardware. In particular, a $10 USD NVIDIA retail graphics card is being tested under Ubuntu Linux on both Nouveau and the proprietary NVIDIA driver and is then compared to a wide range of other low and mid-range offerings from NVIDIA`s GeForce and AMD`s Radeon graphics card line-up with a plethora of OpenGL benchmarks."

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
