AMD Radeon HD 6790 1GB
     Fri, May 13 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The $150 price point is a busy place these days with no less than five products from AMD and NVIDIA placed within $20 of it. Today we have yet another entry into this market with the Radeon HD 6790 1GB, a card that's based on a cut down Barts core. Hoping to pick up where the GTX 550 Ti left off, AMD has some high expectations for the HD 6790 but there's plenty of competition they have to overcome first.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 3GB graphics card
     Thu, May 12 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After more than a year of rumors, false leads and stiff competition, NVIDIA is finally releasing their near-mythical dual Fermi graphics card. Called the GTX 590, it incorporates two 512-core GPUs and 3GB of GDDR5 memory in an effort to topple AMD's HD 6990 from its preeminent market position. Contrary to what many were led believe, this ultra high end card is neither loud nor hot running and it has several other surprises in store as well.

     Thu, May 12 2011 | 11:18A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though the Sapphire HD 6870 Toxic is obviously a gaming card, it offers excellent flexibility for a number of other areas. The HD 6870 Toxic sports Eyefinity technology, allowing for connection of up to five monitors simultaneously using Display Port 1.2 at a resolution of 2560x1600. All outputs are capable of Sereoscopic 3D to add to any Home Theater or gaming experience. The HDMI output of the HD 6870 Toxic is capable of 7.1 channel audio to further simplify any HTPC setup, while still delivering top notch video and audio. With AMD`s Stream Technology, you can even tap into the power of your HD 6870 GPU for transcoding tasks, easing the burden on your CPU and directing these to the more capable GPU."

AMD Radeon HD 6790 Graphics Card Review
     Wed, May 11 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When AMD and NVIDIA release a new batch of next-generation graphics processors, gaps typically form in their respective product stacks as the entire top-to-bottom line-up of new products is fleshed out over time. When new GPUs are introduced, they usually offer increased performance at a given price point, which drives the cost of comparable previous-generation products downward. Occasionally the supply and demand of both the new and old products will result in a larger than desired price disparity between the new parts and the older ones that still remain on the market. It’s those large price disparities that are where product gaps show. Such is the case with AMD’s current product stack. At the top of the line-up, AMD has the Radeon HD 6900 and 6800 series parts, but the lower-end of the market is still covered by Radeon HD 5000 series parts. Disregarding the few remaining Radeon HD 5800 series parts that will eventually sell out, the $100 to $120-ish Radeon HD 5770 is currently the first step down from the $150 to $180-ish Radeon HD 6850. AMD aims to fill that relatively large price gap between those two models with the new card we’ll be showing you here today, the Radeon HD 6790...

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590: Dual GF110s, One PCB
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years, we have consistently been impressed by cutting-edge dual-GPU powered graphics cards, not only for their relatively high performance, but because of the engineering involved to design, build, and bring the cards to market, in form factors not much bigger than their high-end, single-GPU based counterparts. From the GeForce 7950GX2 to the GeForce GTX 295, or the Radeon HD 3870X2 to Radeon HD 6990, top of the line (for their time) dual-GPU cards have offered performance that’s head and shoulders above rival single-GPU cards of their generation. There have always been some specific issues to contend with, with dual-GPU powered cards, namely power and software support, but by and large they have been the more drool-worthy component level hardware to come through the lab. A couple of weeks ago, we showed you AMD’s latest dual-GPU powered graphics card, the Radeon HD 6990. Sporting a pair of Cayman-class GPUs, 4GB of RAM, and foot long PCB, the Radeon HD 6990 proved to be one heck of a performer. Today, it’s rival NVIDIA’s turn to unveil their latest dual-GPU powered flagship, the brand new GeForce GTX 590...

Palit GeForce GTX 550 Ti Sonic review
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we'll be putting the GeForce GTX 550 Ti Sonic from Palit to the test, armed with a new cooler we expect no noise and decent temperatures. The the card comes factory overclocked as well, and not a little. We'll have a deeper look in the product gallery of course. As stated this card comes factory overclocked, from 900 towards 1000 MHz. Extremely high frequencies... but get this, we'll bring this card towards a whopping 1100 MHz today. Let's have a peek at what the GTX 550 Ti has in store for us.

Posted by: STAFF
The proverbial ink has hardly dried on our review of Sapphires HD6870 Flex and we are already introducing another member of the Flex family. That’s because Sapphire is hoping to give everyone the option to go Flex no matter the budget or performance requirements. This also happens to be the first HD6950 to come through our office, finally giving us a chance to check out the performance of AMD’s third in command. Talk about killing two birds with one stone, let’s take a look at the Sapphire FleX HD 6950 2Gb.

Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra Motherboard Review
     Mon, May 09 2011 | 3:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While Sapphire did a good job with the X58 chipset, we indeed wondered how they'd go when it came to the newer P67 one. While most will argue that the X58 is the much better platform with Triple Channel memory and proper x16 / x16 lane setups, the P67 platform brings a breath of fresh air into the computer rooms of budding overclockers and general enthusiasts everywhere thanks to its great overclocking ability on the Intel i7 2600k processor. With some extremely strong options already available, the question is, should the Pure Black P67 Hydra from Sapphire be one we should look at? Well, there's only one way to find out, but before we look at the performance side of things let's first have a much closer look at what exactly the board has to offer."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590
     Mon, May 09 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every time that a new series of graphics cards is presented, it’s merely a matter of time before multi-GPU solutions are presented to be the cream of the crop of the current product gamma. These models don’t stay on the market for long, nor do they shift sizeable amounts of units sold, obviously, having in mind their outrageous price. Besides, the power efficiency of these models isn’t exactly something to be envied on, while the ludicrous dimensions and heating is also something to account for; besides the environmental threat they pose, these cards have to be provided with a large enclosure as well. So, why even bother to make them, one may ask...

MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GB5 OC Video Card Review
     Sun, May 08 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everyone loves the way a high-end graphics card plays games, destroys benchmarks, and makes you the envy of every LAN party. While we appreciate top end hardware most of us are only willing to pay bottom dollar to play the hottest games. That’s why nVidia has been trying to hard to win over gamers at the $200 US sweet spot. First they gave us the GTX 460. Now they’ve got a new GPU at around $150 US that uses less power while giving you decent performance. They call it the GTX 550 Ti and today we’ll be looking at the MSI version known as the N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GB5 OC.

Posted by: STAFF
With high end and lower tiered cards being released to complete AMD's full 6000-series lineup, many forget that the most popular market segment lies within the $175 and $225 price brackets. Here, cards like the GTX 560 Ti and HD 6950 1GB reign supreme but the HD 6870 with its long list of pre overclocked and custom cooled models still offers some great value. In this roundup we take a look at five different HD 6870 cards from some of AMD's premier board partners.

ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Launch Review
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the recent release of the Radeon 6990 AMD overtook the GTX 580 in framerate performance, giving them the chance to claim they had the fastest graphics card available. On launch day we all knew that this might not last for long though as it was clear that NVIDIA was readying their long awaited dual GPU upgrade. Today that product is released and it is called the GTX 590. With two GTX 580 based GPUs on one PCB can NVIDIA offer a desirable alternative to the 6990? We will find out as we take a look at the card in real world scenarios, including the retail version of Crysis 2 at 5760x1080 (with video footage), stereoscopic 3D and GPU computing."

"The new Radeon HD 6790 comes with a USD 150 suggested price, positioning it between the Radeon HD 5770 and the Radeon HD 6850, and competing directly with the GeForce GTX 550 Ti from NVIDIA. Let's see if this video card is a good buy."
