EVGA GeForce GTX550 Ti FBP Video Card Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:16P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We found ourselves reconsidering our feelings for the GTX 550Ti after using the EVGA GTX 550Ti FPB. The biggest reason is the small, yet effective, overclock that gave us the overall performance we expected from the GTX 550Ti in the first place.

NVidia GTX 590 Introduction - The Worlds Fastest GPU
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:16P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we mentioned before the GTX 590 is the world's fastest GPU, but what makes it the fastest GPU?? Is it a mystery chip discovered in the basement graphics lab? Or is it an innovative product that leverages the best that nVidia has to offer in a compact package? Actually, it's a little of both.

Inno3D GTX560 Ti 1GB OC Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some may remember Nvidia first using "Ti" on the GeForce 2 cards until its demise on their 4th generations of graphics cards. Representing Titanium, the cards boasting the moniker were renowned to be popular, hence Nvidia bringing the name back. The GTX560 is set to succeed the GTX460 but not replace it based on their differing price points. At $249/£200, it is meant to fit in between AMD's HD6870 and HD6950. Another benefit of the GTX560 over the GTX460 is the lack of confusion regarding its memory framebuffer at a set 1GB and more importantly, its clock speeds are 822MHz on the core and 4000MHz on the memory, a welcomed boost to consumers. Another impressive feat has been Nvidia's ability to fit the card's improved performance in a similar power envelope as the GTX460. Its TDP is a mere 10W higher than the latter, highlighting the GTX560's efficiency. This particular card by Inno3D has been overclocked to its limit out of the box, testament to the brand's confidence in the card. Set at 950/4300MHz, it is one of the highest clocked GTX560s on the market and Inno3D have stuck to the reference cooler for its purposes.

Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme 1GB Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may seem odd that we're taking a look at an HD 5850 card in 2011, but Sapphire just released an "Xtreme" edition that's well worth the look. In addition to great pricing, the card features an improved VRM design, a more efficient cooler, and a shorter PCB. But, in the end, it's the $150 price tag that makes this card an absolute winner.

Asus EAH6850 HD Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building gaming rigs these days can be a bit confusing, with the continuous launch of new cards on virtually a weekly basis it seems it can be hard to sift through the masses and find the right fit for you. Asus has always been a brand I personally trust for putting out quality products so when they offered me a 6850 with their own brand of aftermarket cooling I jumped at the chance. I have seen a lot of cards come and go but when it comes to my systems my permanent cards have always been Asus with the exception of one 5870 from PowerColor PCS++ series which I was very impressed with. Today we will be running the numbers on the Asus EAH6850 HD Direct CU graphics card and we will see if it is a good fit for your next build:

Radeon HD 6670 review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:49P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Radeon HD 6670. A small, cute and tiny product that has been released by AMD to address a sizable market.. Products that could be handy for desktop usage and hey now, it might sit mighty fine in a HTPC. Heck it even plays games quite well for the money.

MSI 6970 Lightning Twin Frozr III
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:49P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The MSI 6970 Lighting Twin Frozr III is an utterly massive graphics card, the longest on the market in fact, measuring over a foot in length. And MSI actually had to increase the size of the PCB to accommodate the 18-phase power design and a host of other goodies. The MSI 6970 Lightning is a behemoth, it's badass, and it looks awfully impressive. But can it deliver the goods? Let's find out.”

Sapphire Radeon HD6570 Video Card
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 3:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we received this, I was quite surprised with what we received. We did not receive a massive video card with case-clearance issues or a card requiring more power than the Hubble Telescope. We received a simple card measuring 16 cm long with a 8 cm fan requiring no external power supply. My first thought was "This card, retailing at ~$79.00, will never be able to keep up with HD gaming and video", as the box boasts. Lets continue to see if my initial assumptions are correct.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 and HD 6570 Video Cards Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 3:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I hate these low to mid-range cards; it's nothing against them directly, but they're always just so slow. Sure, they might be great for the price etc. - but testing them is still an absolute pain as they're always so much slower than the stuff I'm used to testing. The whole situation is made only worse by AMD releasing three models today, albeit we're only looking at the two higher end ones of these three new models. The good news for me is that we tend to only ever look at one or two of these new models and then continue looking at the fun stuff and what people wish they could afford, but can't. That aside, these are important reviews, though, as this is where companies like AMD and NVIDIA make their money. These low end cards are the ones you might not personally see most of, but local computer shops and system integrators will. These are the kinds of cards that companies put "Huge 1GB GAMING video card" on the signs when advertising budget PCs."

AMD Radeon HD 6570 & HD 6670 Launch Review, Featuring Sapphire's HD 6670
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 3:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD launches the final discrete GPU in the Northern Islands line, codenamed Turks. Fitting into two product lines, and two price points, we investigate how the HD 6570 and HD 6670 move things on from last year's Redwood cards, including a look at a nice Sapphire HD 6670 with Artic Cooling heatsink as standard."

NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti!
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our lineup of reviews for ATI's latest mid-range wonder, the Radeon HD 6870, increases with our look at Sapphire's Vapor-X take on the card. While the card retains the reference design's core and memory clock speeds, it promises ever better overclocking through improved power and thermal efficiency through 10-phase power control, Black Diamond Chokes and of course the Vapor-X cooling design solution. See if the Sapphire Vapor-X card's reference speeds at a slightly higher price still make for great mid-range value, especially against the NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti!

AMD Radeon HD 6790 1GB Video Card Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The AMD Radeon HD 6790 turned out to be a very nice graphics card for the price. We saw it consistently beating the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB video card, which is the latest and greatest offering from NVIDIA at the $150 price point. The AMD Radeon HD 6790 can also be easily overclocked as we were able to reach 900MHz on the core and 1120MHz on the memory before having stability issues. We could have gone higher if we increased the GPU Voltage, but to keep things simple we used just the AMD Overdrive utility to see how far we could push this reference card..."

HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo 1GB Video Card Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Most of the AMD Radeon HD 6850 graphics cards that I have looked at recently have been based on the reference design of the card and tended to produce a bit of heat. The HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo (H685QNT1GD) is actually built on a shorter length PCB coupled with the IceQ cooler to try and combat heat and give the card a killer look. With a stock 820MHz GPU clock speed 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4400MHz, the HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo is aimed squarely at the gaming market, and rightfully so because we as gamers demand awesome graphics, and we are only going to go out and spend our money on a high end card that we know is a proven winner and will let us squeeze every last frame rate we need and deserve out of a video card..."

ASUS GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Overclocked Video Card Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 2:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The mid-range market is really heating up and one of the best things about these mid-range cards is that companies get the chance to attack the models instantly unlike higher end models such as the new Dual GPU offerings from both NVIDIA and AMD. The latest mid-range card to greet us comes from ASUS and is part of the new NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti series. The model we're looking at today is part of both the DirectCU and TOP series and carries with it both a healthy overclock and upgraded cooling system."

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.
