Mobile GPU Comparison: GeForce GTX 580M and Radeon HD 6990M
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 10:29P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I do think the GTX 580M provides the best overall user experience with support for Optimus switchable graphics as well the potential future-looking graphics performance seen in our Ultra quality settings test of Battlefield 3. The NVIDIA Verde driver program is also a benefit over what AMD has traditionally done in the mobile market. The NVIDIA driver team has been releasing mobile-compatible driver updates on a much more regular basis than AMD has been and in most cases are running version-for-version with the desktop parts."

3D Vision Gets Updated with LightBoost Larger Panels and New Glasses
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 12:23P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LightBoost is the brand associated with changes in 3D panel display technology that supposedly alleviates much of the brightness concern from 3D gaming. The LED backlight will now pulse twice as bright in unison with the glasses so that the 3D brightness can appear as much as twice as bright when combined with the new, faster shutter on the updated 3D Vision glasses. This is what allows the glasses to be be left open longer to provide more environmental light for the gamer, allowing viewing of the environment (like the keyboard, cell phone, etc) to be brighter as well."

MSI GTX 580 Lightning Twin Frozr III @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 7:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GTX 580 Lighting Twin Frozr III is a beast of a card, and MSI actually had to increase the size of the PCB to accommodate the new power design and a host of other goodies. The card certainly looks impressive on paper, but let`s see how it performs on the bench."

RAGE Performance and Image Quality Evaluation - Day 1
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 2:17A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That`s all you get PC gamers - a setting for antialiasing and a resolution option. What happens to everything else? It is all adjusted automatically by the game engine on-the-fly depending on the hardware it sits on with the sole goal of hitting that 60 FPS mark. So to be clear, the RAGE engine is built in a way that it will target 60 FPS and will adjust image quality accordingly."

MSI GeForce GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition 3 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 6:54A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has upgraded their GTX 580 Lightning and calls it Xtreme Edition now. The biggest change is certainly the inclusion of 3 GB of GDDR5 memory. Other new features are a dust removal system and a fan that indicates overheating by color change."

Where Have All the 6970s Gone?
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 1:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I spoke with two manufacturers of video cards about this situation, both of which wish to remain anonymous. They gave the same answer. The reason for the lack of product on shelves is not one of demand. So basically bitcoin miners have not purchased every single card on the market (unlike the HD 5830, which is a favorite of the group). The problem is supply. AMD has not supplied these manufacturers with enough HD 6970 chips to address the actual demand."

MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition Review: What a GTX 580 Should Be
     Thu, Nov 17 2011 | 9:52A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When two of these are put together, they make one of the best SLI/NVIDIA Surround combinations out there. While a user can purchase a GTX 590 (dual GPU card) for $150 more than the N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition, they will not get the extra memory space. Then again, purchasing two of the N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition cards will set a user back $1198 (give or take a few dollars). This card is not for the faint of heart, or those light of wallet. Still, when considering a high end card that *should* last quite some time, then there are few other cards that can compete with this monster."

HIS Radeon HD 6790 IceQ X Turbo 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 17 2011 | 1:41A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HIS has taken the AMD HD 6790 reference design, increased its clock speeds and slapped their new IceQ X thermal solution on it. The result is a solid HD 6790 card that is about 5% faster than the AMD version, which delivers awesome temperatures and good overclocking potential."

Sapphire HD6670 Low Profile Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Thu, Nov 17 2011 | 1:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire HD6670 Low Profile Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Sapphire today announced their low profile compatible, single slot Radeon 6670. We have one on our test bench and will be looking at its performance in the latest titles, including Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and Skyrim as well as video tasks to find out how well it fits the needs of gamers and media enthusiasts."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 DiRT 3 Special Edition Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The big discovery here is a card that was able to clock higher than any 6870 we`ve had here at OverclockersClub. This led to great performance comparatively to the reference design and the realization that maybe there`s a little bit more to be had from the 6870 line. The huge dual-fan cooler no doubt contributed to the rock star performance and successfully kept temperatures more than reasonable with moderate interruption to ambient noise. Sapphire`s TriXX utility is one of my favorites throughout the industry competitors. It is very simple to understand and is capable of achieving much higher overclocks than the utility embedded in the Catalyst Control Center."

Sapphire HD 6850 1GB Vapor-X Edition
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well, I was already aware of what most HD6850s were capable of through overclocking, and I found that I hit a similar wall with this one. The core speed, while using a voltage of 1.225V, got stuck at 1030MHz. Everything after that began to artifact and show poor, unstable image quality. At 1030MHz, this card produced the highest core clock speed of all of the comparison cards! This is a slight improvement over the XFX HD6850 comparison card, which maxed out at 1020MHz. The memory, on the other hand, pulled ahead at 1249MHz where the comparison HD6850 stopped at about 1200MHz. With a cooler that is slightly improved over the reference, XFX version, this isn`t to be unexpected. The results here are good, especially with the near 30% overclock on the core."

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."

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.
