NVIDIA GTX 590
     Thu, Apr 28 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" The headroom on the GTX 590 is at this point limited to about a 10 to 15% margin over the as delivered clock speeds, Even though the card supports voltage tuning. The overriding theme of this card is cooler and quieter than the competition. I did not have an overclocking utility to push the clock speeds above the 10 to 15% margins until late last night. At this point the overclocked testing had been completed but ASUS came through with their latest version of their Smart Doctor utility to help us out. With the stock voltages the maximum speed I was able to pull from this pair of GF 110 GPU's was 673MHz or right on that 10% margin. The memory was equally stingy at 1868MHz or 934MHz. At these speeds there was a definite performance increase that was noticed so overclocking is worth the effort and time to find the maximum clock speeds."

MSI GeForce GTX 580 Lightning review
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We test and review the MSI GeForce GTX 580 Lightning. MSI peeked at the NVIDIA reference GeForce GTX 580, then took the GeForce GTX 580 GPU, and threw the rest away. They designed a new PCB loaded with features and overclock potential, slapped some really cool memory on the card and topped off that GPU with the all new Twin Frozr III cooler.

Sapphire 5850 Extreme
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Originally released in 2009, the AMD HD58xx series graphics card quickly gained popularity due to their ability to fully support DX 11, providing a completely new level of tessellation. Released in October of 2009, the HD5850 filled the lower end of the performance slot and was able to deliver great performance for its price. Originally, the HD5850 was oriented towards users who wanted that extra punch, but didn't feel the need to go overboard with their graphics. However, for those that wish to take full advantage of the HD5850, CrossFire is available, and considering the low price of the graphics card, this should be easily accessible.

AMD HD6790
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
'The AMD HD6790 is aimed to bridge the gap between the HD5770 and the HD6850. In essence it is a HD6800-card where AMD has just cut away some shader processors and som ROP's. We've put it through a series of benchmarks as well as overclocked it to see what it can do.'

HIS HD6850 and HIS HD6850 IceQ X Turbo
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HIS has been making ATI and AMD cards for many years now. In fact, it is now almost exactly 7 years since we reviewed our first HIS card, the HIS Excalibur 9600XT Turbo VIVO Edition. As expected, HIS is fully supporting AMD's latest GPUs, and today we are reviewing two HIS cards using the HD6850 GPU: the HIS HD6850 and the HIS HD6850 IceQ X Turbo. The HD6850 is in our opinion one of the more interesting GPU from AMD's HD6xxx series as it offers a very good performace versus price ratio. Not only that, as we will see in this review, the GPU also overclocks extremely well making its value even greater.

MSI GTX550 Ti Cyclone OC Video Card Review
     Wed, Apr 27 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After reviewing a few different GTX550 Ti graphic cards it does start to lose its flavor, especially when the results can be so similar. So it is a major relief to get a refreshing view of a reference card from MSI.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 550 Ti AMP! Edition
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia, the founder of the multi-card configuration concept, has been standing by the advantages of this approach for many years. In reality, “3dfx’s heritage” is a blessing for some and a curse for others. So, how are things with GeForce GTX 550 Titanium SLI configuration? Let’s find out!

Excerpt: "Today we shall review a couple of graphics cards based on the Barts GPU: PowerColor HD6850 1GB GDDR5 and PowerColor PCS+ HD6870 1GB GDDR5. Both are custom products and one is factory-overclocked, too. These mid-end solutions compete with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460 and GeForce GTS 450."

Nvidia GeForce GTX 590: The Dual-GF110 Beast
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia's long awaited Dual-GPU video card is finally here. The GeForce GTX 590 is designed for enthusiast gamers that need the highest graphics performance and image quality from a single video card. The GTX 590 is a DX11 based video card designed to allow users to turn up their graphics settings--including resolution, anti-aliasing, and image quality--without causing excessive performance decreases which would otherwise render games impossible to play. With full control over Nvidia's driver game presets and other graphics features, users can also enjoy image quality customization which would allow them to use up to 64x anti-aliasing with a single GTX 590 and up to 128xAA with two GTX 590s combined for Quad SLI. The user needs to over-ride the application AA through the Nvidia drivers. Once that is done a Multi-GPU 64x AA is possible with a single GTX 590.

ASUS Radeon 6970 DirectCU II review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very few names in the graphics card industry have the balls to take a GPU and then redesign a completely new infrastructure around it. Amongst them ASUS as they took an Radeon HD 6970 GPU... and did just that. They designed a PCB around it, then used a rather sizable cooler and labeled the product EAH6970 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5.

MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II Graphics Card
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 10:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently Nvidia released their GTX550 Ti graphics cards to add to the 500 series of cards. This new card is meant to be the replacement for the GTS450 with a price point around $135, however since this is a factory overclocked card with an upgraded cooler, this particular model has a price of $154.99. These numbers are before any mail-in rebates that are offered. The base MSRP of the GTX550 is right around $20 more than that the GTS450.

Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 560 Ti and Radeon HD 6950 1GB both target PC enthusiasts seeking potent mid-range graphics. We compare a couple of hot-clocked XFX and Zotac variants to see which offers the best combination of performance, noise levels, power consumption, and overall value.

AMD Radeon HD 6450 1 GB
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 9:30A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's new Radeon HD 6450 sets out to compete in the lowest end performance segment. It offers twice the shading power as the aging HD 5450 which results in a solid performance increase in gaming. With a price of $55 it doesn't break the bank, but does it have enough performance for the latest games?

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
