MSI GeForce GTX 580 1536MB Lightning Overclocked Video Card Review
     Fri, Apr 22 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you, like us were impressed with what the MSI HD 6970 Lightning offered which we looked at just the other day here, yet you're happy to spend some more to jump on the fastest single GPU card on the market, then we might just have the card for you. Kicking it up a notch in price and performance, the MSI GTX 580 Lightning could well be the card for you, being of course based on the high end GTX 580 GPU. The Lightning series is all about overclocking, though, so we want to find out just what this series can do for the GTX 580."

Club3D GeForce GTX 550 Ti CoolStream OC Edition
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The fight on the mid-range gaming graphics market is really heating up, AMD got there first with the launch of the HD68-series Barts-cards, but since then Nvidia has introduced their new GTX 560 Ti and GTX 550 Ti series cards. Let us start with the GTX 550 Ti."

KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 EX OC 1024MB
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This time we got two GeForce GTX 560 Ti products for review. One is made by KFA2, the other, by Gigabyte. Both solutions are custom-made, and the Gigabyte's card is also extremely factory-overclocked, so it should be very fast."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 550 Ti
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 12:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we are not entirely convinced that the GeForce GTX 550 Ti is a worthy contender at $149 US, Gigabyte certainly has done a lot to improve its value. When compared to the Radeon HD 6850 which was consistently much faster, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti costs just 15% less despite being around 30% slower most of the time.

Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing (SRAA)
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 11:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing (SRAA) combines singlepixel (1x) shading with subpixel visibility to create antialiased images without increasing the shading cost. SRAA targets deferred shading renderers, which cannot use multisample antialiasing. SRAA operates as a post-process on a rendered image with super-resolution depth and normal buffers, so it can be incorporated into an existing renderer without modifying the shaders. In this way SRAA resembles Morphological Antialiasing (MLAA), but the new algorithm can better respect geometric boundaries and has fixed runtime independent of scene and image complexity."

Radeon HD 6950
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has sent us their version of the Radeon HD 6950 to run through the paces today. The ASUS HD 6950 2GB is factory overclocked right out of the box by 10MHz, which really is not anything to write home about, but it’s there nonetheless. ASUS does include their voltage tweak software to help gain a better overclock, which we aim to attempt as we have in all of our reviews. The ASUS HD 6950 is also fitted with a non-reference, full aluminum cover to help dissipate heat better. The HD 6950 comes with a dual BIOS option from the factory, allowing users to use a BIOS from another manufacturer if they wanted, or just have an overclocked BIOS and an ASUS stock factory BIOS. But enough with the niceties, let’s get on to the real reason everyone is here – testing!

The Radeon HD 6790 1GB
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For the majority of gamers though, that doesn't really matter; what does is how much gaming power you can get for your hard-earned (or lazily acquired) local currency. In that regard, the Radeon HD 6790 1GB is a graphics card that puts even more pressure on NVIDIA and its GTX 500-series than it had before and leaves AMD as our favorite option for $150."

AMD Radeon HD 6790 1 GB
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD is releasing their new Radeon HD 6790 which is targeted at the $150 segment that recently saw some love from NVIDIA in form of their GTX 550 Ti. AMD's new card uses the same GPU as the more powerful HD 6850 and HD 6870, so it will be interesting to see where it stands and whether it can defeat NVIDIA's latest offering.

AMD Radeon HD 6790 graphics card
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA nicely summed up this year’s first quarter with GTX 550, which seemed like a great competitor against Radeon HD 5770. Everything would have been perfect for the Americans if AMD hadn’t already planned the counterattack for the very beginning of the second quarter, or to be precise, 5th April. The new Radeon is named HD 6790 and is somewhat of a modification, or a weakened version of, Radeons HD 6850/6870, based on the Barts GPU. As such, this model is based on the VLIW5 architecture, which is somewhat old and doesn’t belong to the truly high-class Radeons; all chips from the Cayman family are based on VLIW4 (Very Long Instruction Word). Besides, the Barts chip located in HD 6970 has been weakened in order to replace the already obsolete HD 5770...

NVIDIA Interview: Tegra 2 and Project Denver - March 31, 2011
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Paul at HiTech Legion chats with Nick Stam, NVIDIA technical marketing director and Bruce Chan, senior PR manager of Tegra 2 to discuss the past, present and future of Tegra. With the announced Tegra roadmap outlining the creation of powerful ARM-based, multi-core, ultra low-power processors that are significantly faster than anything the tech industry could have imagined, how much will the lines be blurred between desktop and mobile computers in the future? How far is NVIDIA willing to push the performance envelope of sub-1W computing?"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Graphics Card
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 is a very powerful graphics card, a competitor to the recently announced Radeon HD 6990. It is much better in terms of cooler noise, its cooler being much quieter. So if you need a very powerful and quiet card, GeForce GTX 590 is your choice."

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.

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.
