ASUS MATRIX GeForce GTX 580 1536MB Platinum OC’ed Video Card Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Over the last few months we've seen MSI do some wonderful things to the GTX 580, releasing the model into its Lightning series and then during Computex re-releasing the GTX 580 in 3GB form also under the Lightning series; but in this case it was the Lightning Xtreme Edition. Someone else has done something with the GTX 580, but I can't really remember who; it's probably got something to do with the fact we haven't seen it. Anyway, the latest company to go all out with the model is ASUS with it getting the ROG MATRIX treatment. Imagine a facial with an electric sander to make everything smooth. It's big, it's fat, it's got lots of extra buttons and it looks powerful. Today we intend to find out if it performs as good as it looks, because oh does it looks good."

Introducing the Matrox SMD-2 for Large-Scale High-Density IP Video Decoding
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Matrox Graphics Inc. today introduces the Matrox SMD-2 streaming media decoder, a second-generation universal IP video decode solution designed to decode – in parallel – large numbers of network video streams in different resolutions and formats. The ideal building block for large-scale IP video decode applications, each SMD-2 board can simultaneously decode up to 64 QCIF, 16 D1, or 2 HD 1080 streams. By combining multiple SMD-2 boards within a single system, users can decode and display hundreds of IP streams on any video display wall. In light of their newly announced partnership, Matrox Graphics and Trenton are currently working together to engineer a validated system capable of supporting multiple SMD-2 cards within a single chassis, to be available later in the year. SMD-2 is fully integrated with the Matrox PPX Series and will be compatible with the Mura MPX Series later in the summer. With its capacity to cost-effectively support large-scale, high-density IP stream decoding, the Matrox SMD-2 is ideal for use in security surveillance, public security, and critical infrastructure sectors.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 Flex
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the process of shifting the product lineup to the Radeon HD 6000 series, AMD rebranded the 5770s to 6770s. So nobody should expect a significant difference. Anyhow Sapphire promises some advantages in the Radeon HD 6770 Flex that HT4U.net is exploring in the review.

Posted by: STAFF
As one of the major AMD OEMs for graphics cards, Sapphire usually comes up with own concepts for the GPUs as well. This time HT4U.net got hold of a seldom dual fan concept on the Radeon HD 6950 Dirt-3-Edition.

Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire HD6670 Ultimate was able to give me a maximum clock of 870 MHz on the GPU core and 1140 MHz on the memory core, the Sapphire HD6750 was able to hit a maximum of 840 MHz on the GPU clock and the memory clock was a maximum of 1340 MHz. Finally the HD6770 had a maximum GPU Core clock of 960 MHz and 1320 MHz on the memory clock."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently explored Sapphire's FleX edition of the new HD 6770, a black sheep in the new Northern Islands family still running on a Juniper-based core. Though it has a great value, the true entry-level cards for the 6xxx series are the 6450, 6570, and the 6670. Today we'll be sitting down with the latter of the three, to see if Sapphire adds a little extra value to the package.

Sapphire HD 6750 Video Card Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With a price tag of just $100, the Sapphire HD 6750 is a low to mid-range video card offering performance on a budget. Time to stress and strip the card to see how it compares to two of its bigger brothers."

Nvidia reloads their 400-series lineup
     Tue, Jun 21 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sniper is on the prowl again as Nvidia reloads their 400-series lineup. The new GTX 550 Ti option for gamers is aimed at people who want more performance than the GTS 450, while maintaining a price point below the 460 (~$150). Equipped with faster clocks and a wider 192-bit memory interface, the GTX 550 Ti should provide you with about 28% faster performance on average, and 20% more performance/watt. Will the new Sniper lay waste to the older, slower 450 sniper? Continue on…

ASUS Radeon HD 6870 Video Card Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With killer looks and performance to match the ASUS Radeon HD 6870 at $199.99 shipped with a 3 year warranty fits right in there with the rest of the cards in its class. With features such as the Direct CU cooling system and the ability to bump up the voltage with a custom made driver it seems like you can't go wrong with the ASUS Radeon HD 6870. It did perform well in all of our benchmarks and tests and even without the use of the special ASUS driver we were able to overclock this bad boy to 1GHz without any problem, and I am sure we will be able to go even higher once we can adjust the voltage..."

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC Video Card Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Nvidia GTX 560 SC (Fermi) GPU is based on the very same core as the Nvidia GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) Video Card and comes fully equipped with 336 CUDA cores, 56 texture units and 32 ROPs. With the included 7 Polymorph Engines for proper tessellation you are now armed and ready to play some of the most advanced Direct 11 games on the market now and those in the very near future. Although it is very similar in every way to the GTX 460, instead of using the GF 104 core the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC (Fermi) Video Card makes use of the Fermi based GF 114 core that allows the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC (01G-P3-1461-KR) to obtain higher clock speeds while using less power overall. So not only will you be getting more performance, you will be getting that performance for darn near the same amount of money a whole year later..."

“Sapphire is known for producing some impressive cards in its Vapor-X lineup that run cool and quiet, and we expect no less from this Radeon 6770 card as well. But is it a good value card for gamers on a modest budget? Let's find out.”

Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 1GB SOC Graphics Card Review
     Sun, Jun 19 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Stephen Harper won the 41st Canadian general election and became the Prime Minister for the third time in five years, political commentators on TV praised him for his very well presented victory speech. But why are we praising someone who didn't even write the speech in the first place? The answer to this question is actually quite simple, but requires some food for thought. So let's put it this way: Give the same speech to people like you or me. Unless your name happens to be Stephen J. Harper, just because we have the same draft on hand, does not mean we can present it as well as the next. In the same way, we all know there are a billion versions of the same video card in the market today. Whether it is ASUS or MSI or HIS or PowerColor or Gigabyte, they all have all have some kind of AMD or NVIDIA GPU in the middle, and none of the board manufacturers had any hand in the design of the GPU. So what makes you want to buy a Gigabyte video card over, say, an ASUS variant, even though they are both Radeon 6870s? Other than the usual price and warranty factors, stuff like the included cooler plays a role, too. The Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 1GB SOC we are reviewing today is a great example of what makes a run-of-the-mill graphics card unique among the competition. Combined with high quality electronic components and a hardcore looking WindForce 3X triple fan heatsink, how well does this "super" overclock version of AMD's excellent Radeon 6870 GPU step up against its competitors? We took one in and fired up our test platform for some benchmarking fun. Read on to see why we like this card so much!

MSI GeForce GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme edition review
     Sat, Jun 18 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we tested the GeForce GTX 580 Lightning from MSI roughly a month ago, we stated that the product might become product of the year, it really is that good. But little this I knew about an Xtreme edition that MSI still had in the works. Armed with color changing fans and 3GB of memory MSI raises the bar once again.

MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC review
     Sat, Jun 18 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI does what it does best, customizing hardware. They took the R6950 GPU, and threw the rest away. They designed a new PCB loaded with features and overclock potential, slapped some really cool memory on the card and topped off that GPU with the all new Twin Frozr III cooler. We take this card over a full GHz today on the graphics core, and that says a lot about the sturdy design alright

HIS Radeon HD 6970 IceQ Turbo 2GB Video Card Review
     Sat, Jun 18 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We've looked at the HIS HD 6970 Turbo, we've also looked at some IceQ variants of the HD 6800 series; but today the power of the IceQ and Turbo series combine to create the HIS HD 6970 IceQ Turbo. The IceQ series is a popular one for HIS and has always represented their best cooler in the HIS line-up. Combined with the Turbo label, the card carries with it also a nice out of the box overclock. Today, though, we've decided to ignore the overclock and instead make use of the cooler and overclock the card ourselves. Before we cover that, though, let's first check out the package that's on offer from the HIS HD 6970 IceQ Turbo 2GB; then we'll take a closer look at the card itself before looking at the actual overclock we achieved."

MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II OC
     Fri, Jun 17 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 560, situated performance and price wise between the GTX 460 and GTX 560 Ti. The new, non-Ti version of the GTX 560 sports 336 CUDA cores, 56 texture units and a 256-bit memory interface. MSI has taken the OEM design and applied their custom configuration to the GTX 560, resulting in the card we are looking at today, the N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC. Follow along as we pit the new GTX 560 against not only NVIDIA cards, but rival AMD cards as well. The GTX 560 is based on the same GPU used in the GTX 560 Ti, the GF114. The GTX 560 is designed to give gamers an affordable videocard capable of playing DX11 titles in HD (1920x1080) resolutions. Speaking of affordable pricing, the MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC is priced at a very affordable MSRP of $209.99.

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.
