Point of View GeForce GTX 590 OC versus Radeon 6990 OC
     Fri, May 20 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today NVIDIA released their updated driver, 267.84 and we have taken that, 5 recently released games (including Crysis 2, BulletStorm and Shogun 2) and tested at 1920x1080 and 5760x1080 with the 6990 and GTX 590 overclocked to their limit. Read on to find out which is faster when both are pushed as far as they will go on a heavily overclocked Intel Core i7-990X."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 Graphics Card Review
     Fri, May 20 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the release of NVIDIAs GTX 550 Ti at $150 a few weeks ago the market changed slightly and AMD had a new product to consider, today we see their response in the form of the 6790, our first 6700 series product and on our test bench is Sapphires version. We will be putting it up against the 550 Ti (as well as a few other products) in a selection of the latest games, media playback and GPU computing tests to establish how good the new Radeon is."

ASUS GeForce GTX 590 3GB Video Card Review
     Thu, May 19 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been ages since we've seen NVIDIA come out with a dual GPU card, and we know the main reason for that was because the GTX 400 series, as good as the mid-range models were, the initial launch pieces ran too hot and drew too much power, making a dual GPU card not an option. The GTX 500 series fixed all the issues that the GTX 400 series had and then added more power into the mix. So that means today we get the dual GPU NVIDIA card we've wanted for ages, and it's known as the GTX 590. We've got our hands on the ASUS one today and we'll be following the standard review lay out by looking at the package and then the card. Once we've done that we'll check out the specifications and of course because we're dealing with a new model, we'll be going into a bit more detail than usual on the specs front. Once we've done all the boring stuff, though, we get into the fun stuff and check out the performance of the new GTX 590."

"The entire name of the card is HD6870 IceQ X Turbo X, and it features the same IceQ X-cooler as the HD6850 we already saw earlier. What else does the card offer? Let's find out!"

HIS Radeon HD 6990 4GB and HD 6970 2GB Video Cards in CrossFireX
     Wed, May 18 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I was really looking forward to testing this setup because I think it's something that's very plausible for a lot of people who have got the money to spend. Jump back a few months and we thought we'd see the HD 6990 4GB launch towards the end of last year; December was the date getting thrown around. Instead, what happened was the HD 6970 which we thought would launch in November launched in December and the HD 6990 became a bit of a quiet card. We knew it existed, we knew it was coming, but a month turned into a much longer wait. So if you're looking for a new video card to get some holiday gaming in, you figure you'll just go down the HD 6970 path and maybe later look at the dual GPU option that AMD offer. Initially you might have had intentions of selling off your HD 6970 and picking up a HD 6990 in its place, but what about if you bought a HD 6990 and threw that into the mix with your HD 6970? What kind of performance can this triple GPU setup offer you? - Well, that's exactly what we intend to find out. Is it worth holding onto that HD 6970 and throwing in a HD 6990 into the mix? - Priced at a similar level to the GTX 580 SLI setup, it'll indeed be interesting to see the kind of performance we get out of the setup. What will also be interesting is to see the kind of performance we get when compared to the HD 6990 4GB CrossFireX setup that makes use of four GPUs."

HIS Radeon HD 6990 4GB Overclocked Video Card Review
     Wed, May 18 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With another HD 6990 4GB arriving, we take the time to have a proper look at the overclocking potential of the model. It was great that we achieved 1GHz on both cores on our Sapphire sample, but considering we had to run the fan at 100% which generated in excess of 90 dB of noise, we understand that it's hardly a feasible option for most people. So instead of testing the HIS HD 6990 4GB at its reference speeds or in CrossFireX (two things we've already done), we'll instead be testing its overclocking potential with the fan set to a much more bearable AUTO. Of course, we'll again be using MSI Afterburner software to overclock and that means we'll be able to increase the core voltage on both our cores which should help us achieve a strong overclock. Before we get into that, though, let's first check out the package of the HIS card before taking a closer look at the card itself."

ASUS GeForce GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP 1GB GDDR5 DX11 Video Card
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 7:31P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS GTX560 DirectCU II TOP video card has a core overclock of 925MHz and memory overclock of 2100MHz. The ASUS GTX560 DirectCU II TOP is equipped with dual fans to keep the thermal levels of the overclocked GPU in check. The combination of the GF114 architecture and ASUS’ Super Alloy Power optimizations make the GeForce GTX560 DirectCU II TOP more powerful and more energy efficient than reference GeForce GTX 560’s. The ASUS GeForce GTX 560 DirectCU II also comes bundled with the ASUS SmartDoctor monitoring and overclocking utility, as well as the ASUS GamerOSD benchmarking and media capturing software."

MSI GTX 560 Twin Frozr II OC video card
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 7:16P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's GTX 560 Twin Frozr II OC measures in at 241 millimetres in length (9.49 inches) including the fan shroud that extends past the PCB, and requires a minimum of 450W or greater system power supply. Cooling is provided by a dual 7.5cm PWM fans and heatsink combination, with quad heat pipes and an aluminium fin array that allows for efficient heat transfer and dissipation. It's worth noting that this design does not fully eject hot air from the back of the case like some more-enclosed coolers generally seen on higher-end cards.

Axle3D GT430 Classic
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 6:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At 1080p, the Axle3D GT 430 posts a just about playable 29.1 FPS, whilst the Inno3D GT 430 posts more than 2FPS higher. This is disappointing for Axle3D - a name I wasn't familiar with prior to this review. I would have hoped for this card to be better than the competition"

MSI R6970 Lightning 2GB
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three voltage check points for the GPU, Memory and PLL (PCI-Express interface) are present on the edge of the card, and as mentioned earlier, MSI include a set of cables that you can attach easily to your multimeter (not provided) for accurate voltage monitoring while benchmarking or volt-modding. In addition to those voltage check points, MSI include their own dual-BIOS technology as originally seen with reference HD 6970's, but this time they've included their own second BIOS setting that increases the PowerTune range (2.5x) and maximised the Catalyst Control Centre overclocking limit with a click of a button.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 1GB Video Card Review
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If all those NDAs last month weren't already enough for everyone, we start the NDA run for April nice and early. With AMD having taken care of the high end segment with cards like the HD 6970 and HD 6990, while also taking care of that mid-range - high end segment with cards from the HD 6800 series, it was only a matter of time 'till we saw some more mid-range, cheaper cards hit the market. Considering NVIDIA released the GTX 550 Ti last month and more mid-range models are rumored, it comes as no surprise that AMD are starting to release their line-up. The first comes in the form of the HD 6790. It's clear that the xx30 naming scheme didn't work for them in the past, so it seems they've decided to look at a 50, 70 and 90 line-up now."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 @ HT4U.net
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 8:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last time NVIDA launched the GeForce GTX 560 with the Ti suffix. So it was just a matter of time, until the GPU without it would also see the light of day. Today NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 560 and in the version of ASUS as GeForce GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP it is chasing the Ti quite heavily."

Posted by: STAFF
Guru3D.com is brings you the "Guru3D VGA Charts". In the VGA chart you can see all the reference cards we have tested recently in an orderly and easy to comprehend manner. It's then end of April and most DX11 graphics cards from both AMD and NVIDIA have been released. Some charts have up-to sixty graphics cards slash combinations embedded. All these cards have been tested on the very same PC with the very same OS. Here in the lab we have an evil twin, e.g. we have two PCs build exactly the same.

MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk
     Mon, May 16 2011 | 3:48P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The card is able to match and sometimes beat an AMD HD 6950 and tie most of the time with the GTX 570 while costing much less than both. Overclocking was able to increase the core speed from 950MHz to 1010MHz stable with stints up to 1050MHz. The memory speed was increased from 1050MHz all the way to 1250MHz with headroom left, a dramatic increase! When pushing the core speed, the back side of the PWM area became very hot and was likely the reason for the smaller core overclock. The voltage measuring points and BIOS performance switch are nice touches for those looking to push the card although, the PWM heat seems to be the only thing limiting further overclocking."

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.
