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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590
     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.

     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.

Sapphire Radeon HD 5830 Xtreme Video Card
     Sun, May 01 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new GPU is labeled as an Xtreme model why we don’t know because it still carries the reference clocks. Maybe it is extreme because of it pretty attractive price point. The card comes bundled with a new look cooler that resembles the ones on some of the Sapphire 6xxx series. Because the card can be overclocked to great levels with the TriXX software application could be another reason to label the card extreme.

Diamond All-in-Wonder HD Premium 5000
     Sat, Apr 30 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The connectivity of the graphics card is where it does shine, as it supports a single HDMI output, a single VGA, and a single DVI-I video output, which we all know are the most commonly used connections for a computer monitor, as well as providing the option to hook it up to your HDTV that you may have sitting in your living room or bedroom. The fact that you can use the TVW750 PCIE HDTV Tuner to grab an audio/video feed off your video camera, VCR, or whatever other device you need to connect to that supports the RCA (Yellow-Red-White) output connections, gives it the ability to be used to create just about any digital media file that you may want."

Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme is a low-cost and powerful DX11 option. The Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme uses an original cooler design that is significantly quieter and cooler than the loud blower-style fan used on stock HD5850 designs. The Sapphire HD5850 has 1440 stream processors and 72 texture units with 1GB of GDDR5 memory, able to handle even the latest DirectX11 games. Although the HD5850 Xtreme edition comes with one less DVI port and one less CrossFireX connector, it is priced below $150 USD, offering huge savings compared to regular HD5850 video cards, while out-performing an NVIDIA card at the same price range."

ASUS EAH 6990 Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:29P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the EAH 6990, ASUS presents its first AMD Radeon HD 6900 series graphics card featuring two GPUs. The successor of the already very powerful Radeon HD 5970 lets us all hope for another superb graphics card with excellent performance because it's a fully functionnal dual Cayman XT (aka Radeon HD 6970) with high clock speeds. We expect really good DX11 performance and we're going to show you if the Radeon HD 6990 performs as well as an HD 6970 CrossFire setup.

AXLE GT 430 Classic
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The AXLE GT 430 performed great. It didn't overclock past the ASUS variant, but it did run with a lower temperature while operating approximately as quiet as the CPU heat sink fans. The gaming potential is there somewhat, as long as graphics quality or frame rate isn't important — minimalism is key for gaming with this. High definition content handling is a great use for this card, as it is tailored to media workloads. This card also works great as a dedicated PhysX processor and can take the load off the CPU when decoding media content, while also completing the job faster!"

HIS HD 6870 IceQ X Turbo X Video Card
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HIS HD 6870 Turbo cards are factory overclocked with a warranty. Now let me clarify something here. I said the HIS HD 6870 Turbo which is what we reviewed recently. HIS's Turbo X takes things to an entirely new level. The HD 6870 reference clock is 900MHz on the core and 4.2GHz on the memory. The HIS Turbo version of that card tweaks things to 920MHz on the core and 4.48GHz on the GDDR5 memory. With the IceQ X cooler, HIS takes things to the X level and jacks their card up to 975MHz on the core and 4.6GHz on the memory. That's quite a bump.

Radeon HD 6790 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's a blast from the not so distant past here at Neo today with our review of the Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 and HD 5830 Xtreme graphics cards. What's so Xtreme about cards that still use the reference specifications of the older mid-range Cypress GPUs models? Sapphire throws in custom PCB and thermal designs, not to mention Eyefinity and ATI Steam processing, to improve performance and pack more value into these Cypress-based cards. We put the Xtreme cards to the test to see just how well they compete against the likes of the Radeon HD 6790 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti in the DX11 sub-$150 graphics card market.

Sapphire 5830 and 5850 Xtreme
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“No, this isn't a review of two older graphics card models originally released a year ago. The Sapphire 5830 and 5850 Xtreme are actually two "new" graphics cards. More precisely, these are two previous-generation graphics cards that have been completely overhauled in design and are being released at extremely aggressive prices to compete against Nvidia's GTX 460 and 550 Ti mainstream lineup.”

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.
