     Wed, Aug 24 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

With all the fancy and feature-dripping high-end video cards it's easy to forget some of the better value cards on the market today, and the fact that not everyone has the budget, or even the need, for a $500+ video card. So today we take a look at VTX3D's Radeon HD 6790 equipped with 1GB of speedy GDDR5 memory linked to a 256-bit memory interface, 800 stream processors with over 1.3 Teraflops of compute power, and support for latest the DirectX 11 features.

Asus HD 6870 DirectCU 1GB GDDR5 Video Card Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS HD6870 DirectCU brings a very refined aspect to video cards. In addition to the Radeon HD 6870 GPU overclocked to 915MHz, the ASUS HD6870 DirectCU brings a slew of ASUS exclusive features and technologies. Naturally, the card is fitted with ASUS’ DirectCU cooling system, complete with three direct contact copper heat pipes and aluminum fin array, dust repellant shroud and variable speed fan. Under the shroud, you will find ASUS’ exclusive Super Alloy design featuring the highest quality capacitors, MOSFETs and chokes for improved performance, lower heat and longer life. It also needs to be noted that the stronger nature of Super Alloy technology certainly helps in overclocking, especially with the HD6870 DirectCU’s unlocked voltage in the BIOS. To aid in overclocking ASUS includes their Smart Doctor software to assist you in easily and safely overclocking your GPU."

AC Accelero TwinTurbo Pro on HD6950
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted another VGA-cooler review. Last week we have taken a look at the Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo Pro, tested on a Radeon HD 6950. The Twin Turbo Pro is a long time on the market and the compatibility list is very long. One of the not listed cards was the Radeon HD 6950, for whatever reason. But the cooler fit on this card, what you can see in our article.

GPU leaders NVIDIA GTX295 and AMD HD5970
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2009, ASUS launched their 1000-piece limited edition mammoth "Mars" (2 x GTX285 on a single card) and took the performance crown over then GPU leaders NVIDIA GTX295 and AMD HD5970, albeit at a significant price premium. Two years later today and equipped with two GTX580 Fermi cores, we do a mini review on the world's fastest single graphics card for enthusiasts - ASUS Republic of Gamers Mars II.

ASUS Mars II 3 GB Dual GTX 580
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:08P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS MARS II is a monster graphics card consisting of two GeForce GTX 580 GPUs on a single PCB using triple slot cooling. Unlike the NVIDIA GTX 590, the MARS II comes with full GTX 580 clock speeds which give the card an almost 20% performance advantage over the GTX 590, making the card the fastest graphics card in the world, but also the most expensive at $1500.

ASUS HD6670 1GB GDDR5 with DisplayPort DirectX11 Video Card Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS HD6670 video card with DisplayPort is factory overclocked to 810MHz. This ASUS HD6670 is equipped with faster memory for superior performance and is equipped with a DisplayPort for 3-monitor Eyefinity support. Cooling is provided by an 80mm dust-proof fan blowing down on an aluminum heatsink. Since the ASUS Radeon HD6670 only has a TDP of 66W, there is no additional 6-pin power connectors needed. Aside from the DisplayPort connector, there is also a DVI-I port and an HDMI port, fully supporting AMD’s HD3D technology."

Diamond Radeon HD 6770 XOC Video Card Review
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Diamond has come to the market with a brand new add-in GPU with the budget minded enthusiast in mind. The Diamond Radeon HD 6770 XOC is a factory overclocked video card that has both the memory and the core overclocked 50 MHz over standard settings, so you don't have to bother yourself with all of the pesky overclocking stuff. The Diamond Radeon HD 6770 XOC has taken these clocks to 900 MHz on the core and to 1250 MHz on the memory. The standard Radeon HD 6770 Graphics Card has a core clock of 850 MHz and a memory clock of 1200 MHz..."

Sapphire HD6950 2GB DiRT3 Toxic Edition
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Another incredible thing about this card is that it was unlockable — meaning that I was able to flash it to an HD6970 BIOS, unlocking the total 1536 shader cores over the stock 1408. With the extra 10% of shader cores at my disposal, I reran the overclocked benchmarks and discovered a steady jump in performance by anywhere between 6%-8% running at the same 1010/1500MHz. Granted, not all cards can do this from the factory, as they are physically cut. I can't say whether all these cards are unlockable, but it doesn't hurt to try."

ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II 1GB DirectX11 Video Card Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II has been improved beyond the reference design but keeps the standard GTX 560 Ti price. The ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II has a direct heat-pipe, dual-fan cooling design and has a completely custom PCB. Similar to other DirectCU II equipped video cards from ASUS, the GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II has Super Alloy Power technology, which consists of high-quality, heat-resistant and energy efficient components, which allow for highly stable performance and overclockability."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580 SOC Review
     Sun, Aug 14 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Factory overclocked graphics cards are nothing new and the GTX 580 GPU has been around for months now, but Gigabyte claims to have the world's fastest GTX 580. Noteworthy competitors include MSI's N580GTX Twin Frozr II/OC, which operates at 800MHz, Zotac's AMP2! ZT-50104-10P, which pushes the GPU to 815MHz, and eVGA's DS Superclocked 797MHz card. With most board partners scared to push the 244w GTX 580 far beyond its reference spec, we were surprised when Gigabyte announced its solution which treads on deeper water than the competition dares to.

GeForce GTX 590 Water Block Roundup
     Sat, Aug 13 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Some of the advantages of full coverage blocks are their ability to cool all critical card components rather than just the GPU core. Full coverage blocks also run silent, wtih no fan noise to worry about (though the radiator does admittedly have fans as part of the overall loop). There's also the reason of bragging rights; having what is arguably the fastest graphics card on the planet on water is unquestionably an enviable achievement. With that said, the question then becomes: which GPU water block? In order to answer that critical question, today we’ve got a GPU water block roundup for the GTX 590 to examine products from some of the top manufacturers to try to determine just that.”
