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."

With individual design, cooling, overclocking and further high overclocking potential they aim to be a premium product for premium price. After having only an NVIDIA product in the current lineup, MSI now also features AMD’s latest GPU. The result is called MSI Radeon R6970 Lightning.

Not only does the latest HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X TurboX 1GB card manage to produce performance numbers to match an standard Radeon HD 6950 but it does so with lower temperatures, less noise and a much smaller price tag.

AMD Radeon HD 6670 and 6570 Mainstream GPUs:
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:50A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks ago, AMD took the wraps off of the Radeon HD 6450, an affordable DirectX 11-class graphics card targeted at users looking to upgrade from basic, integrated graphics solutions. We posted a quick look at the Radeon HD 6450 in our news, and while the card wasn’t a barnburner, it was certainly a step up from integrated graphics. The card’s low-power characteristics, low profile, and the integration of AMD’s UVD3 video engine also made it an excellent candidate for HTPC applications. Today AMD continues to flesh out the Radeon HD 6000 series with a few more cards targeted at more budget-friendly, mainstream market segments. As their names suggest, the new Radeon HD 6670 and Radeon HD 6570 cards launching today are somewhat more powerful than the Radeon HD 6450, but they’re also priced a little higher too. We’re still talking about really affordable price-points though; 1GB GDDR5 versions of the Radeon HD 6670 will be available for as low as $99, while the 512MB GDDR5 (or 1GB DDR3) version of Radeon HD 6570 will be available for around $79...

AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB & HD 6570 512MB video cards
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:50A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another week, another graphics card launch. This time AMD is hitting the entry level with a pair of new products: the HD 6670 and HD 6570. Both of these are supposed to offer budget conscious buyers some new choices over the previous generation while adding features like UVD3 into the mix. Hopefully, they'll allow lower priced GPUs to hit higher performance levels as well.

AMD Radeon HD 6670 1 GB
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:49A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD releases their HD 6670 which is priced at $100. The card is based on a brand-new graphics processor called "Turks" with 480 shaders and GDDR5 memory. Like all recent cards from AMD the card supports EyeFinity, DirectX 11 and full HD video acceleration.

AMD Radeon HD 6450 and AMD Radeon HD 6570
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:49A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Presenting the lowest segment in the product gamma is usually the last step in presenting the new generation, at least in the usual scenario. In accordance with this, AMD announced their low-end chips, Caicos and Turks, for the second quarter of the current year. These chips are reserved for the weakest models from the Radeon HD 6000 series, which is probably the last thing that is going to be presented in the following months as well, with the possible exception of HD 6670. These cards are intended for non-heavy duty users, and are mostly low-profile, so that they fit not only into regular office PCs, but also HTPCs. We got two visually similar models for testing; these two small Radeons, however, turned out to be packing major differences under their coolers…

Sapphire HD 6950 FleX 2GB Graphics Card
     Mon, Apr 18 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many graphics cards are rebranded reference designs. Sapphire doesn't play that game, and releases their HD 6950 Flex 2GB to prove it. This card has a trick, the ability to run 3 monitors right out of the box. Tricks are great, but does the card have the muscle to satisfy gaming enthusiasts? Read on to find out.

ASUS GeForce GTX580 1536MB DirectCU II
     Mon, Apr 18 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS is a company reputed for going all the way through with its ideas; once they’ve decided to create a special product (or product series, for that matter) and present it to the market, they achieve what they had in mind. This is the case with their own rendition of GeForce GTX580 DirectCU II, which has been redesigned in every way, all with the goal of separating the card from competitors in mind, with both low temperatures and overclock capabilities. Even the world-famous overclocker Shamino managed to set a record on this card; you can read more about this in a separate box. This card is aimed at users who don’t restrain from paying good money for quality and now exactly what quality means. ASUS has done their part of the job flawlessly and we really can’t say that we have anything to reproach to this card...

ASUS GeForce GTX 590 3GB Video Card Review
     Mon, Apr 18 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It's hard to believe the last dual-GPU video card by NVIDIA was the GeForce GTX 295 and that card was launched way back in January 2009! For more than two years there wasn't an update for this flagship part, but that all changed today with the GeForce GTX 590. To make this dual-GPU beast work the engineers at NVIDIA took the GF110 GPU that is found on the GeForce GTX 580/570 cards and reduced the clock speeds to make a card that was running at 365W. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 is a welcomed addition to the NVIDIA GeForce 500 series of graphics cards and it did prove itself to be faster than the GeForce GTX 580 and is the new flagship video card for NVIDIA!

ASUS Ultimate GeForce GTX 550 Ti Video Card Review
     Mon, Apr 18 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Ultimate GTX550 Ti video card was found to be between 9 to 14% faster than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX550 Ti reference design in our testing, but that was expected since it operates at a 1015MHz versus the standard 900MHz clock speeds. The ASUS Ultimate GTX 550 Ti also ran cooler at full load and we love the look of the card thanks to the custom GPU cooler and black PCB design. When it comes down to it the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti is a solid video card that is aimed at gamers that run 1680x1050 or smaller resolutions. If you happen to fit in that category then you should find that the GeForce GTX 550 Ti is a very capable video card...

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.
