GTX 590 and see what's under the hood
     Thu, May 26 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "NVIDIA's new flagship graphics card, the GeForce GTX 590 3GB, is without a doubt the fastest NVIDIA product we have ever tested and competes in the super-high-end market very well against the Radeon HD 6990 4GB. The downside to this release is that quite clearly the GTX 590 isn't up to the task of beating the performance of the HD 6990 at the highest resolution tested, 2560x1600. At both 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, the GTX 590 was either better than or equal to the results from AMD's new flagship. The problem as I see it is that most users willing to shell out the $700 for either option are more likely to be planning for a 30-in panel or an Eyefinity/Surround monitor configuration than they are comfortable sticking at the 1080p single display resolution."

Considering the market NVIDIA is aiming for
     Thu, May 26 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "ARM is working on developing a 64 bit processor, and we can only assume that NVIDIA is also tapping into this resource (as well as providing its own resources to get these products up and running ASAP). While it is a good couple of years until we see the next generation of gaming consoles hit the market, I do expect all of them to go to the ARM architecture for their CPU needs. It just makes sense, especially with the recent explosion of mobile gaming which is overwhelmingly run on ARM based devices."

Radeon HD 6990 and the GeForce GTX 590
     Wed, May 25 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "What might have originally looked like a Franken-card being created by EVGA has turned out to be one of the best graphics cards we have reviewed all year. By combining a pair of GeForce GTX 460 GF104 GPUs on a single PCB and pricing it lower than the GTX 580, EVGA has built a card that offers similar performance and more features than NVIDIA's own flagship single-GPU card."

GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU
     Wed, May 25 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "With three retail NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti offerings behind us, we know that picking one is going to be a difficult choice for some. Some users will really want the highest out-of-the-box overclocked settings and that would be where the Palit Sonic offering falls. Others will want the coolest running card and the MSI Twin Frozr II design definitely takes the win there. Galaxy's card offers some great temperatures as well as a unique "spin" on the fan design with a fold-out feature that allows for easy cleaning."

Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 is one of thoes latest releases. The Radeon HD 6670 looks to take over its predecessor's, the 5670, position in the market. With the 6670, we get an increase in architecture that boosts computing performance. The core clock is set to 800 MHz and the memory 1GHz, 4GHz effective. Onboard memory for the HD 6670 equals 1GB of 128-bit GDDR5. There is an increased SIMD core, giving a total of 480 stream processors and 24 texture units. Similar to the previous generation, there are 32 Z/Stencil ROP units and 8 color ROP units. The 6670 has support for DX11, Eyefinity, and AMD App Acceleration. Sapphire has also paired up with Arctic Cooling to put a special heatsink/fan combination on the 6670 to keep temperatures low."

Exclusive - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580 SO review
     Tue, May 24 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte 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 WindForce 3X cooler. The cooler design is Gigabytes first generation triple-fan solution. It features 3 quiet PWM fans, three copper heat pipes and a vapor chamber to strengthen the speed of heat dissipation, and the product is called the Super Overclock edition.

GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the EVGA Superclocked Edition
     Tue, May 24 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA has supplied us with their take on the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the EVGA Superclocked Edition. The EVGA SC edition is the second-lowest-clocked card of their factory overclocked cards. The first is the FPB edition, then the SC, followed by the SSC and the FTW editions. The EVGA GTX 560 Ti comes overclocked by about 75MHz on the core and 50MHz on the memory. Judging from previous overclocking results on past cards, this should still leave plenty of headroom to go higher. We will find out just how much higher in our overclocking portion of the review. Let’s get to testing EVGA’s entry into the extremely popular area of the GTX 560 Ti market and see how well they do, shall we?

Sapphire Radeon HD6670

Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "The final GPU core clock I was able to get to was 890MHz, which ends up being about an 11% increase. The memory overclocking was done using the exact same procedures. I was able to arrive at about an 18% increase, which was 1180MHz. To make all of these adjustments, I was using the Sapphire TriXX overclocking utility."

ASUS Radeon HD6970 2 GB DirectCU II
     Sat, May 21 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was some time ago that we first got the idea of making a comparative test of two cards that are in high demand among hardware enthusiasts. The chance arose when two almost identical cards got to our offices, courtesy of ASUS. Situations such as these, where you have the chance to compare graphics cards with entirely different GPUs under the same conditions, are rare to say in the least. Even if performance is comparable, cooling systems are usually not. Furthermore, every manufacturer has its own PCBs, layouts etc. However, this is one such situation, since ASUS provided us with cards from their DirectCU II series. We’ve already explained countless times how this series first got its name, so no need to repeat all the “theory” again. Suffice to say - an even-handed melee between Radeon HD 6970 and GeForce GTX 570. If this phrase is enough to get you going, you’re the proper audience for such a showdown, so sit back and enjoy the following lines…

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Dual Graphics DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Sat, May 21 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There comes a time when you need a helping hand, your surrounded and the only way out would be to use your intellect or to have something better than the others that gives you the edge. A strong intellect is always a good thing to have since it will usually get you out of situations that need thought and careful deduction. The evolution of gaming is upon us and we no longer have to wait for the software to catch up to the technology. If you are the type that demands realistic game play and loves to crank up the “EyeCandy”, you will not be able to survive on intellect alone; you will need superior hardware to generate the realism. You will need that one piece of killer hardware to generate enough frames per second to ensure smooth gameplay while ensuring your immersive experience is memorable. NVIDIA quite possibly has developed the solution, a Dual GPU video card called the GeForce GTX 590."

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.
