Axle3D GT430 Classic
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 6:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At 1080p, the Axle3D GT 430 posts a just about playable 29.1 FPS, whilst the Inno3D GT 430 posts more than 2FPS higher. This is disappointing for Axle3D - a name I wasn't familiar with prior to this review. I would have hoped for this card to be better than the competition"

MSI R6970 Lightning 2GB
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three voltage check points for the GPU, Memory and PLL (PCI-Express interface) are present on the edge of the card, and as mentioned earlier, MSI include a set of cables that you can attach easily to your multimeter (not provided) for accurate voltage monitoring while benchmarking or volt-modding. In addition to those voltage check points, MSI include their own dual-BIOS technology as originally seen with reference HD 6970's, but this time they've included their own second BIOS setting that increases the PowerTune range (2.5x) and maximised the Catalyst Control Centre overclocking limit with a click of a button.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 1GB Video Card Review
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If all those NDAs last month weren't already enough for everyone, we start the NDA run for April nice and early. With AMD having taken care of the high end segment with cards like the HD 6970 and HD 6990, while also taking care of that mid-range - high end segment with cards from the HD 6800 series, it was only a matter of time 'till we saw some more mid-range, cheaper cards hit the market. Considering NVIDIA released the GTX 550 Ti last month and more mid-range models are rumored, it comes as no surprise that AMD are starting to release their line-up. The first comes in the form of the HD 6790. It's clear that the xx30 naming scheme didn't work for them in the past, so it seems they've decided to look at a 50, 70 and 90 line-up now."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 @ HT4U.net
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 8:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last time NVIDA launched the GeForce GTX 560 with the Ti suffix. So it was just a matter of time, until the GPU without it would also see the light of day. Today NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 560 and in the version of ASUS as GeForce GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP it is chasing the Ti quite heavily."

Posted by: STAFF
Say hello to Nvidia`s latest $199 graphics card. Is this a worthwhile step up from the GeForce GTX 460 1GB and is it a better deal than AMD`s Radeon HD 6870?"

VGA Charts for Spring 2011
     Mon, May 16 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Guru3D.com is brings you the "Guru3D VGA Charts". In the VGA chart you can see all the reference cards we have tested recently in an orderly and easy to comprehend manner. It's then end of April and most DX11 graphics cards from both AMD and NVIDIA have been released. Some charts have up-to sixty graphics cards slash combinations embedded. All these cards have been tested on the very same PC with the very same OS. Here in the lab we have an evil twin, e.g. we have two PCs build exactly the same.

Posted by: STAFF
The new generation of AMD and Nvidia graphics cards is already here, but how well will they withstand the competition from discrete multi-GPU solutions? Today we are going to use a GeForce GTX 580 SLI tandem to answer this question.

MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk
     Mon, May 16 2011 | 3:48P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The card is able to match and sometimes beat an AMD HD 6950 and tie most of the time with the GTX 570 while costing much less than both. Overclocking was able to increase the core speed from 950MHz to 1010MHz stable with stints up to 1050MHz. The memory speed was increased from 1050MHz all the way to 1250MHz with headroom left, a dramatic increase! When pushing the core speed, the back side of the PWM area became very hot and was likely the reason for the smaller core overclock. The voltage measuring points and BIOS performance switch are nice touches for those looking to push the card although, the PWM heat seems to be the only thing limiting further overclocking."

"Today we shall focus on four graphics cards from Sapphire: three Radeon HD 6870 and one Radeon HD 6850. Only one of those is factory-overclocked, but three out of four are custom products."

ASUS GeForce GTX 590 3GB video card
     Mon, May 16 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just below that is an innocent looking GeForce logo, and while at first it seems a fairly standard decal, to our surprise when first powering the card we were greeted with a sleek illuminated GeForce logo. This is also used to indicate any issues with the power connections. This illuminated logo was something that was photographed last year before the GTX 580 launch, and while the card displayed was uncertain, and speculated to be the GTX 580, it didn't ship with such a decal. So we love that this distinctive feature was finally included in a production card.

Gainward GTX 550 Ti GS
     Mon, May 16 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first change was the mini-HDMI connector, replaced by a full-sized HDMI, plus the addition of a VGA connection, replacing the second DVI connector seen in reference design cards. At the top of the card there's a single PCI-Express 6-pin power connector, which is standard. However, they did move the power connector to the top edge rather than leaving it at the end of the card.

HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X TurboX Video Card Review
     Mon, May 16 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"March has just been an unreal month with the amount of launches we've seen. We saw both AMD and NVIDIA release extremely fast Dual GPU models along with NVIDIA releasing a new mid-range one. If you thought it was going to quiet down, you'd be wrong, because April is looking just as crazy with more releases from NVIDIA and AMD along with partners releasing fancy versions of popular models. Today we've got a fancy HD 6870 from HIS; the IceQ X TurboX. It's a bit of a tongue twister, but we're fairly sure we're going to love it as it carries that IceQ tag along with the Turbo tag, our two favorite from HIS. Before we look closer at the actual card, though, let's check out the package that HIS has got gone on. Then we'll see the IceQ cooler they're using before looking at the specifications. We'll then finally get into the performance that's on offer."

IOGEAR USB HD Video Adapter
     Sun, May 15 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a small but very important portion of the consumer marketplace, the need for multiple monitors on their systems is a must have option. Sadly, while this small niche is willing to pay good money for a laptop with multiple output options, their choices are extremely limited. This is why companies like IOGEAR make and market devices such as their USB HD video adapter (which is DisplayLink certified). A long while ago, my colleague looked an earlier version of this device and walked away moderately impressed. Today, I will take a long hard look at the new and improved version which boasts 1080p, 32-bit colour depth resolution to see if IOGEAR and DisplayLink has worked out all the bugs.

Sapphire 6950 FleX Edition
     Sun, May 15 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We've seen a couple other Sapphire FleX graphics card, most recently the 6870 version. But that card didn't have the horsepower to push respectable framerates at extreme resolutions across three displays. But this 6950 makes a big jump, with a more powerful GPU and 2GB of GDDR5 memory, looking to remedy that problem and bring better gaming experiences to the diehard enthusiasts.”

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.
