HIS Radeon HD7870 IceQ Review - XSReviews
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS 7870 IceQ, the latest 7870 to come from HIS, it features a custom PCB and cooler. At first look, the card looks huge! At 29.7 cm long it`s longer than even it`s much more powerful brother, the 7970. The combination of a fairly low power 28nm GPU and a massive cooler should make for a very fun graphics card overclocking wise and hopefully, quiet too. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

MSI GeForce GTX 680 TwinFrozr 2GB Overclocked Video Card Review
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 12:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the weeks have gone on we`re going to start to see new variants of the GTX 680 and today we`re looking at one from MSI which is part of the much loved TwinFrozr series. Because it`s part of the TwinFrozr series and we`ve already looked at a pre-overclocked GTX 680, we figured today we`d take the time to manually overclock the MSI GTX 680 TwinFrozr and see what kind of performance we can get out of it via MSI Afterburner. Of course there`s a few things we need to do before we get to the performance side of things and the first is check out the bundle that MSI has going on. Once we`ve done that we`ll take a closer look at the card itself along with its default specifications and what we managed to overclock it to. From there we`ll get into the performance side of things."

PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 2GB Review @ circuitREMIX
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 9:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As many of you are probably already aware, AMD released their mainstream enthusiast GPU offering, Pitcairn, a little over a month ago. Better known as the Radeon HD 7800 series, the two models making up this mainstream class are the 7850 and 7870. By nature, qualities of the mainstream enthusiast class consist of a good balance between high image quality and value pricing. With Pitcairn, this translates generally translates to maxed out (or close to it) image quality in games at HD 1080p resolution, with a launch price tag between $250-350. Now that we`re past the initial wow of the paper launch and products actually widely available to buy, we`re taking a look at the cheapest Pitcairn offering we could find. That happens to be PowerColor`s Radeon HD 7850 2GB video card. It`s a basic no frills 7850 that comes with AMD`s reference cooler, stock clock speeds, and not much extra in the box. But its main selling point is its low price. Selling for $230, it`s almost 10% cheaper than AMD`s suggested retail price."

MSI GeForce GTX 680 TwinFrozr III OC review
     Wed, Apr 18 2012 | 4:21P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the MSI GeForce GTX 680 TwinFrozr III OC. First impressions, the PCB seems to be 100% reference. The card is equipped with 2 GB of graphics memory. They popped a TwinFrozr III cooler on there with five thick 8mm heatpipes which should give some good cooling performance. The card comes factory overclocked though giving it a little more bite. Read the review right here"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Kepler On Linux

After some delays in getting the hardware, we finally have our extensive review of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Kepler graphics card with testing and benchmark results under Ubuntu Linux. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 is one mighty performer and pleasing open-source customers will be the independent option of being able to use this inaugural Kepler graphics card with the open-source, reverse-engineered Nouveau driver."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Surround Gaming Tested @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Apr 18 2012 | 9:15A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After running 2D Surround on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 for the past week we must say that we were pleasantly surprised with the user experience that we had. It has become clear to us that multi-monitor gaming has matured to the point that it is ready for mainstream adaptation. Before it took running more than one card and the Windows experience with the drivers wasn`t that great. NVIDIA changed all that with the new features that are included with the latest GeForce drivers and now you can run both 2D and 3D Surround with a single GeForce 600 `Kepler` series card..."

News: A closer look at some GeForce GTX 680 features
     Mon, Apr 16 2012 | 9:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first reviewed the GeForce GTX 680, we were in our usual rush to push out an article at the time of the product`s unveiling, after a solid week of poking and prodding Nvidia`s new GPU. We were also attempting some of the more complex analysis of real-time graphics performance we`d ever done, and these things take time to produce. Something had to give. Our choice was to take a mulligan on writing up several of the new hardware and software features built into the GTX 680 and its GK104 graphics processor, with the intention of fixing the oversight later. We figured omitting some stuff and patching it later was pretty fitting for a GPU introduction, anyhow. Well, we`ve been working on writing up those features, and given additional time to describe them, we indulged our penchant for ridiculous detail. The word count shot up like Apple`s stock price, and the result is this article, because there`s no way we`re not totally milking this thing for more readership. Read on for more detail than you probably deserve to have inflicted on you concerning the GeForce GTX 680`s new dynamic clocking scheme, antialiasing capabilities, adaptive vsync, and more."

MAINGEAR Shift System Review - Triple HD 7970s and Sandy Bridge-E
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 11:38A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen other retail cases with the 90 degree rotation but MAINGEAR was the first system builder to implement it and continues to push forward with innovative updates like the custom built water coolers and the Epic Audio system. The system components are not unique though - that is a problem for all system builders to differentiate - but MAINGEAR is one of the few builders to really find ways to stand out."

MSI HD 7970 3GB Lightning Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 11:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD 7970 may not be too high on enthusiasts` radars these days but MSI is hoping the newest member of their Lightning series will stand out from all of the other cards on the market. It may have a steep price of $600 but its features are unique and the clock speeds are high so this may be worth the premium over NVIDIA`s GTX 680.* *"

MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning 3GB Video Cards in CrossFire Overclocked
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 9:36A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The other day we checked out the MSI HD 7970 Lightning 3GB and in typical MSI Lightning fashion we found ourselves really impressed with what was on offer. Strong overclocking performance, a good out of the box overclock, awesome cooler and just a huge amount of features make it a stand out video card. We figured what`s better than a single HD 7970 Lightning 3GB overclocked, though? Two MSI HD 7970 Lighting 3GB video cards overclocked and in CrossFire mode! So that`s exactly what we did - we organized another MSI HD 7970 Lightning 3GB, paired it with the one we had and then proceeded to overclock them both in CrossFire. Much fun prevailed, of course."

MSI HD 7870 Twin Frozr III 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 9:43A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s HD 7870 TwinFrozr III improves on the AMD reference design by adding the company`s dual-fan cooling solution to the card. It also comes with increased clock speeds of 1050 MHz core and 1200 MHz memory out of the box. In our testing we saw great additional overclocking potential, well into the 1200 MHz range."
