Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Dirt 3 Edition 2GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Jul 22 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With the recent release of DiRT 3 AMD announced that it would be packing the game with select video cards. Of course Sapphire’s Radeon HD 6950 was one of those cards. From a technical standpoint the Radeon HD 6950 is basically the same card as the original card we reviewed back in December, except Sapphire has improved the cooling solution. They have increased the size of the cooling surface, added 5 copper heatpipes, and finally added a second fan. All of this plus the free game makes this the definite choice when it comes to deciding which Radeon HD 6950 to get. Read on to check out our r eview!"

HIS HD 6570 Silence
     Fri, Jul 22 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The fat passive aluminum cooler did far better than expected in keeping the card working away and punching out pixels. Even when loading up Duke Nukem Forever which is known for spinning up VGA card fans, the HIS HD 6570 Silence hung in there. After 45 minutes of active gameplay, the HIS HD 6570 was hot, 85 degrees Celsius, but it never hiccupped or game me any visual artifacts or abnormalities.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 1GB OC Graphics Card
     Fri, Jul 22 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I mention the British Phonographic Industry, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Penthouse Magazine? Playboy UK? Well, my advice to you is, let's get your head out of the gutter, because what we are talking about here is the British Phonographic Industry, not the British Pornographic Industry. (On the other hand, it is interesting to point out most people get it wrong at first glance, too.) With that in mind, let me introduce to you the product we are reviewing today. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 1GB OC, as its name suggests, is based off one of NVIDIA's latest GPU releases, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560. Wait a second. Hasn't the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 been around since January? Fair enough, but like when we have mentioned British Phonographic Industry earlier, it is one of those things you can easily misread -- the one you are thinking about is probably the GTX 560 Ti. You know, the Titanium version, with more stream processors and texture units, combined with a marginally higher clock speed. The GV-N56GOC-1GI is based off the non-Ti version with a slight overclock to 830MHz core, 1660MHz shader, and 1002MHz memory; followed by a stream-texture-ROP configuration count of 336-56-32, respectively. Situated in the extremely competitive $200 MSRP market, and priced slightly below that at press time, how well does the usual Gigabyte approach of taking a standard GPU, install it on a custom PCB full of high quality components, slap on a custom cooler on top (Or under, depending on your perspective), fare in this ultra competitive market? Read on to find out what we have found!

ASUS 6870 DirectCU video card
     Thu, Jul 21 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DirectCU line of cards from ASUS are catered to the overclockers out there in the market. The DirectCU has precision mounting, putting the copper heatpipes in direct contact with the GPU for better cooling performance. ASUS has also implemented their SAP, Super Alloy Performance technology, which uses high quality capacitors, MOSFETs, and chokes along with ASUS’s super hybrid engine. They have also equipped the 6870 with multiple sets of input fuses on the circuit board to eliminate any chance of excessive or dangerous temperature rises, which should keep you from frying your video card. The 6870 DirectCU also comes factory overclocked from ASUS to 915MHZ, compared to the stock speed of 900MHz on basic 6870 cards.

ASUS GTX 580 Matrix Platinum 1.5 GB
     Wed, Jul 20 2011 | 4:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First seen at Computex this year, the ASUS GTX 580 Matrix Platinum is an overclocker's dream. It offers multiple voltage control via both software and hardware, a quiet running, powerful triple slot, dual fan thermal solution and easy to reach voltage measurement points. This card is also the first to be supported by ASUS' new GPU Tweak software.

GeForce GTX 560 (SLI) reviews
     Mon, Jul 18 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA launches the GeForce GTX 560 today, not to confuse with the GTX 560 Ti model. Guru3D.com published a fourfold of reviews covering three AIC graphics cards and an additional SLI performance article. Here is an overview of the articles published: GeForce GTX 560 SLI tested Things get more interesting when you combine two cards that offer nice performance at an affordable price, we think that the GeForce GTX 560 might be a perfect match for SLI in combination with current generation processors.

MSI Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr III Review
     Sat, Jul 16 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the lookout for a higher-end graphics card, but value both temperatures and acoustics? MSI, with its Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition (*phew*) may have just what you're looking for. In our tests, it often settled right beside more expensive offerings, and where acoustics and temperatures are concerned, it can't be beat.

MSI GeForce GTX 560 Twin Frozr II Review
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To help fill a model gap that no one told us about, NVIDIA has released its GeForce GTX 560, a slight step down from the Ti variant. Featuring a cut of 48 cores and the potential for wildly varying clock speeds, this card is a strange beast. But, we look to pit MSI's 'Twin Frozr II' against our usual fleet of cards to see where it stacks up in the end.

PowerColor HD 6850 SCS3 1 GB
     Wed, Jul 13 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor's Radeon HD 6850 SCS3 is the first completely passive cooled Radeon HD 6850. This makes it the fastest zero-noise graphics card available today. Instead of the fairly compact heatsink of the reference design, PowerColor is using a massive triple slot cooler which provides the cooling required for the HD 6850 SCS3.

Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor's exclusive HD 6870 X2 unifies two HD 6870 graphics processors on a single card. This approach offers performance that can compete with other high-end cards like GTX 580. In our testing we saw nice results that make this card a worthy alternative in today's high-end graphics card market.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 FleX Edition Review
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 6:31P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's not often that we see a new graphics card get released that's no different than its predecessor, but with the Radeon HD 6770, that's just the case. We're already familiar with HD 5770 performance, but let's take a look at how this $140 card compares to its similarly-priced competition, including the recently-launched HD 6790.

Sapphire Radeon 6670 Ultimate
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 6:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Sapphire Radeon 6670 Ultimate is a modest card: low-power, passively cooled, and marketed to consumers who may be interested in something for their HTPC or the occasional foray into some light gaming. It packs a bit of horsepower, but it does run utterly silent, so Sapphire has a rather interesting combination to offer here to those who are looking for something a bit different.”

GeForce GT 440 512 MB GDDR5
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GeForce GT 440, an entry-level DirectX 11 video card, can come with two memory configurations: 512 MB GDDR5 running at 3.2 GHz (51.2 GB/s) or 1 GB DDR3 running at 1.8 GHz (28.8 GB/s), both costing exactly the same. So, which is the better option, a GeForce GT 440 with less but faster memory, or a GeForce GT 440 with more but slower memory? Check it out."

Posted by: STAFF
"The Radeon HD 6570 and Radeon HD 6670 were originally released at the beginning of the year as OEM products, i.e., available only for computer manufacturers. Last month, AMD released them on the retail market with a suggested price of USD 80 and USD 100, respectively."

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.
