Bitcoin Currency and GPU Mining Performance Comparison
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 6:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Obviously from our testing the AMD architecture is much better suited for this mining algorithm than NVIDIA`s GeForce cards, but why? It really comes down to AMD`s use of smaller and simpler shader processing units compared to the design that NVIDIA uses; AMD runs more SPs at lower frequencies (1600 SPs on an HD 5870 running at 850 MHz) while NVIDIA runs fewer SPs at higher frequencies (GTX 480 has 480 SPs running at 1400 MHz). This gives AMD a better ALU output than NVIDIA."

MSI GeForce GTX 560 Twin Frozr II OC 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 1:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today NVIDIA releases their new GeForce GTX 560 non-Ti. The GPU comes with a reduced shader count of 336 and is targeted at the $199 segment. MSI`s GeForce GTX 560 Twin Frozr II is an overclocked version of the GTX 560 reference design which also features MSI`s prominent Twin Frozr II thermal solution."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 Super Overclock Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 11:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 570 may have been introduced over nearly a year ago (yes, it has been that long) but it is still one of the best graphics cards around when it comes to price / performance ratio.  Gigabyte has taken it upon themselves to take this card to the next level by integrating it into their Super Overclock series.  The resulting GTX 570 Super Overclock boasts high clock speeds and a $50 price premium over the reference version but its performance could go toe to toe against the GTX 580."

MSI N560GTX-Ti HAWK Graphic Card Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 5:27P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI just keeps the hits coming on the video card front. While I was not overly impressed with their latest motherboard offerings this past month, they have kept their foot on the gas when it comes to graphics. The best part about these cards is that generally they are not that much more expensive than the reference versions. With the HAWK series this is especially true. In this case, it sits right around the upper-middle portion of current offerings using this GPU. MSI has created yet another outstanding video card for enthusiasts everywhere."

AMD FirePro V7900 and V5900 Professional Graphics Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 5:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD still has a lot of work to do to catch up in the professional graphics markets as NVIDIA`s Quadro line still has the dominant market share and mindshare. Technologies like Eyefinity are the key to AMD`s rise in this field but it is inevitable that NVIDIA will rip that idea off and implement more than two display outputs on single cards very soon; then AMD will have to depend on things like raw performance and software partnerships to keep gaining ground. Those software partnerships (such as NVIDIA`s with Adobe) are even more important here than with gamers."

MSI R6970 Lightning Review: A Supercharged AMD Radeon HD 6970
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 4:42P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is a tremendous design from MSI, and I am happy to say that they have erased the memory of the disappointing R5870 of yesteryear. It does have a price premium over a standard HD 6970, but in this case I think the premium is well worth it. It has a good overclock right out of the box, and the Twin Frozr III cooler is a marvel. Even though it does not exhaust the air outside of the case, it was so effective in cooling the chip that it barely raised the case temperature in the first place."

MSI HD 6950 Twin Frozr II Review: Cool and somewhat Beastly
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 2:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Personally I like the card. I was disappointed I could not mod it successfully to a HD 6970, but even in stock form the card is not slow. I am doing some ?long term? testing on this particular model in my main machine, clocked at a much more mundane 900 MHz core and 1350 MHz memory. This has provided a nice performance boost, all the while producing less sound than the more aggressive overclock I did while testing. So far the card has worked flawlessly at this speed, and it has handled every application I have thrown at it with aplomb."

AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB and HD 6570 512MB GDDR5 DirectX11 Video Card Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Nov 14 2011 | 9:18A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon HD 6670 and HD 6570 video cards are based on AMD`s 40nm Turks GPU. The Radeon HD 6670 and HD 6650 are entry level cards aimed at the sub-$100 price point. Both the Radeon HD 6670 and HD 6570 have 480 Stream processors, 24 texture units, 8 ROPs and come with a 128-bit memory interface. The Radeon HD 6670 clocks in at 800MHz and is equipped with 1GB of GDDR5 memory at 4000MHz while the Radeon HD 6650 has a 650MHz core clock with either 512MB of fast GDDR5 or 1GB of DDR3 which consumes less power. The new HD6670 and HD6570 series Turks-GPUs were designed to continue AMD`s lead in providing low-cost high-definition playback and DirectX11 support, perfect for OEM systems and HTPC builds."

NVIDIA sampling Kepler - GK107
     Mon, Sep 12 2011 | 7:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GK107 is set to feature in four mobile GeForce SKUs - N13P-LP, N13P-GS, N13P-GT and N13E-GE. If these codenames sound familiar, it is because they have previously appeared in a leaked 28nm mobile GPU line-up. GK107 features a 128-bit memory interface, and supports DDR3 and GDDR5 memory. The first three GK107 based SKUs (with a P suffix) will likely succeed the GeForce GT 500M series, and will presumably be branded GeForce GT 600M series. The top GK107 part, N13E-GE, may succeed GTX 560M and be part of the GTX 600M series, as denoted by the E suffix (Enthusiast). In addition, GK107 will also be part of mobile Quadro SKUs - N14P-Q1 and N14P-Q3."

AMD FirePro V4900

Posted by: STAFF
""AMD is announcing today a new FirePro workstation graphics card. What is being announced is not a new ultra high-end creation, but instead it`s a new entry-level graphics card to fit in between the FirePro V4800 and FirePro V5800 / V5900: it`s the AMD FirePro V4900. The FirePro V4900 will retail for less than $200 USD while offering up some nice capabilities for the price. Here is a launch-day look at the FirePro V4900 along with the first Linux benchmarks of this latest AMD workstation graphics creation."""

ASUS Matrix GTX 580 Platinum
     Wed, Sep 07 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we will look at some of the unique features that separate the ASUS Matrix GTX 580 Platinum graphics card from a reference card and how can users utilize those features. This card retails for $529.99, which is only 20 dollars more than the DirectCU II card and about 70 dollars more than a reference card, which retails for about 459.99.

The AMD "Radeon HD 8000" Open-Source Milestone
     Mon, Sep 05 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The discussion surrounding issues with the Linux kernel DRM code has been quite interesting. From the 40+ comments so far, there's been some interesting feedback from some of the key open-source driver developers along with AMD. In particular, the generation to succeed the next-generation of AMD graphics processors (what will be the "Radeon HD 8000 series" if they continue with the same marketing names), should be a pivotal moment for AMD's open-source strategy."

Low-End Sandy Bridge Graphics Performance
     Mon, Sep 05 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On Wednesday we published our first compute performance numbers for the Core i3 2100, Intel's lowest-end "Sandy Bridge" processor at this point. This ~$125 USD processor was a step-up from the previous generation Clarkdale CPUs (roughly the Core i3 530), but obviously the Core i5 2500K was still a great deal faster. How's the Sandy Bridge graphics performance though with this low-end CPU? That is the focus of today's tests."

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.
