iXBT Labs Review: MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II/OC, MSI R6870 Hawk
     Thu, May 05 2011 | 1:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're going to review three graphics cards from MSI: a Radeon HD 6950, a Radeon HD 6870, and a GeForce GTX 560 Ti. All three come equipped with very efficient Twin Frozr coolers and should give you good overclocking potential."

HIS HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Card Review
     Thu, May 05 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the end, the HIS IceQ X HD 6850 Turbo was nothing less than outright surprise. Not only did it look good, but it had the performance and overclocking to match. This card just LOVES to be overclocked and the IceQ X cooler shrugs off the initial thermal burden without even pondering a sweat."

NVIDIA GeForce 400
     Wed, May 04 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With NVIDIA still not providing any open-source support or technical documentation for their graphics processors, for those in the open-source community who seek to use their GeForce 400/500 "Fermi" GPUs without NVIDIA's binary driver, they are left to use the reverse-engineered, community-created Nouveau driver. Fortunately, the support for the NVIDIA Fermi GPUs is coming along at a respectable pace -- with even working OpenGL acceleration -- considering that NVIDIA is providing no support at all. In this article are the first benchmarks of this experimental GeForce 400/500 "Nouveau NVC0" driver versus NVIDIA's official proprietary driver."

HIS 6850 Fan 1GB GDDR5, HIS 6870 Fan Turbo 1GB GDDR5
     Wed, May 04 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we shall review two graphics cards from HIS. Only one of those - HIS 6850 Fan 1GB GDDR5 HDMI/2xDVI/DP - is actually made by the company, the other copies the reference design."

HIS Radeon HD 6790 1GB IceQ X Turbo Video Card Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 5:24P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just before the launch of the HD 6790, HIS emailed us and asked if we wanted to get a sample of the normal version, or if we were happy to wait a couple of extra weeks for the IceQ X Turbo one. Since we had a reference clocked card already on the way and the IceQ X and Turbo series being two great ones, it was a no brainer and we chose to wait. Well, the card finally arrived and we got a chance to put it through its paces to see what this new mid-range card was able to offer. Being part of the IceQ X and Turbo series means we've got both an upgraded cooler and an overclock on offer."

Crysis 2 GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The highly anticipated sequel to Crysis is finally here. Despite the few shortcomings we didn't expect to see on the PC version, like its lack of DX11 rendering at launch, the game looks gorgeous and appears to be quite a lot of fun regardless. Now the question that remains to be answered is how demanding Crysis 2 is on PC hardware? Can it bring the most power hungry rigs to their knees as the original game did? Today we plan to find out as we run a wide range of processors and graphics cards through the gauntlet.

AMD Radeon HD 6950 1 GB
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In order to complete their lineup in the $250 segment, AMD has released a 1 GB version of the HD 6950. This makes the card $40 cheaper, yet does not impact performance in any way as our testing shows. We also saw great overclocking potential on our card which makes this card a tweaker's dream combined with the HD 6950 to HD 6970 modding potential.

XFX HD 6950 XXX Graphics Card Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overall, the XFX HD 6950 XXX 1Gb is an excellent graphics card for the consumer wanting a HD 6950 with a little better performance and an extensive amount of additional overclocking headroom. When overclocking, it seemed like I couldn't hit the limit and is by far one of the best overclocking cards I have tested in recent memory."

Sapphire HD 6950 Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Sapphire's Radeon HD 6950 has proven to be an excellent overall product. With excellent build quality and a robust accessory hardware kit, it is still priced lower than a lot of the competition to date. Also adding in that Sapphire is still AMD's #1 seller, I'd be a fool to recommend anything but to consider this card if the HD 6950 is an option that you are itching to spend you money on in the near future."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6570

Posted by: STAFF
"AMD has expanded its Radeon HD 6000 series family, with the launch this week of the mid-range Radeon HD 6570 and Radeon HD 6670 graphics cards. We were sent over a Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 in advance, but as it did not arrive until Monday, the results are only now available. Here is the first Linux benchmarks of the AMD Radeon HD 6570 "Turks" graphics processor."

Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 - Quad SLI Review
     Mon, May 02 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier today we took a look at the new GeForce GTX 590 for the first time, comparing it to the GTX 580 and Radeon 6990 in a selection of real world scenarios. At that time there was no driver available which allowed us to look at quad SLI however that has now changed and we have spent the majority of the day testing Zotac's model on driver version 267.84. So let's take a look at how the GTX 590 in SLI compares to the Radeon 6990 in CrossFire with games such as Crysis 2, Dragon Age 2 and Shogun 2."

AMD Radeon HD 6790
     Mon, May 02 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are a chip design house designing graphic processors, and you find that a certain percentage of your chips coming from the foundry does not perform on specification, you have 2 choices. Either you discard them, or you redefine the specification to make it a different product. This particular way is quite usual and AMD shows the latest incarnation of this practice. The AMD Radeon HD 6790 is a cut-down Barts chip targeting the mainstream segment. HT4U.net compares an AMD reference board and a branded version from Sapphire.

     Mon, May 02 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the head to head race for the fastest graphics card, AMD and NVIDIA battle a close fight. The past showed that this competition is a field for dual GPU models. While AMD made the first move with the Radeon HD 6990, NVIDIA launches the first dual GPU model in 2 years, named the GeForce GTX 590. HT4U.net proudly presents the 2011 edition of the crown rumble.

the AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB & HD 6570 512MB.
     Sun, May 01 2011 | 12:00P | 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.

ASUS HD 6950 DirectCU II
     Sun, May 01 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
More and more Radoen HD 6950 cards different from the reference design appear on the market. ASUS places a rather extravagant model in the shelf. A triple-slot cooling solution and 4 DisplayPort connectors are on offer. HT4U.net presents how such a monster cooling impacts reality.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
