AMD HD7950 Tahiti Pro Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Pro version of the AMD graphics card range appeal more to the budget conscious. Of course, being a top of the line GPU, the HD7950 will be anything but cheap but if it can hold its own against the more expensive (and more powerful) HD7970 without making too many sacrifices then the HD7950 is sure to appeal to the market and if it overclocks only half as well as the HD7970 then you will be getting HD7970 performance for less outlay."

AMD Radeon HD 7950 & XFX R7950 Black Edition Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After spending some time with the AMD Radeon HD 7950 we found it to be to be a very capable graphics card that was hands down faster than the AMD Radeon HD 6970/6950 from the previous generation. From our performance numbers it looks like the AMD Radeon HD 7950 should have no problem beating the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 video card and as you saw in our test results it was even able to beat out the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified in a number of benchmarks..."

AMD Radeon HD 7950 3 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD released their new Radeon HD 7950, the second card to be based on AMD`s GCN shader architecture. Compared to its bigger brother, the HD 7970, the card comes with less shaders and reduced clock speeds. Other features have remained the same, like 3 GB memory, improved power consumption and support for EyeFinity."

AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB Graphics Card Review
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If AMD and its partners can get 900 MHz options out there for under the price of the GeForce GTX 580 and just as importantly, keep them in stock, then I think we have another big winner on our hands. The HD 7950 3GB is faster than the GTX 580, uses less power, offers more features, has twice the frame buffer capacity for higher resolutions and multi-display gaming and costs less. That is a conclusion that demands an Editor`s Choice if I ever heard one; we only hope you`ll see these cards in stock to buy for yourself."

Graphics Card Overclocking: Is it really worth it?
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking plays a vastly different role in the computer industry today than it did 10 years ago, a time when overclockers were considered outlaws by manufacturers. Back then even mentioning overclocking could void your warranty and industry leaders like Intel were working to eliminate it all together. In contrast, nowadays processor and graphics cards manufacturers have embraced the practice, touting high 'overclockability' as a feature and in the process using it to sell enthusiast oriented products at a premium.

Galaxy MDT GeForce GT 520 Review: Quad-Display
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the affordability of high-res, big-screen displays, people are increasingly adopting multi-monitor setups for gaming and productivity. Although it's easier than ever to outfit your home office with several 27" screens, it wasn't long ago that such a setup required pricey specialized hardware. Nowadays, AMD's Eyefinity technology enables from three to six displays on one card, while Nvidia's more limited Vision Surround still supports up to three monitors for a max resolution of 7680x1600 (2560x1600 per screen). Multi-monitor technology was originally designed for productivity and it's still the driving force behind such technology today. Graphic designers, video editors, stock traders and other professionals greatly benefit from several screens, but they don't necessarily demand the raw GPU power high-end gamers do. Hoping to address those needs, Galaxy has begun offering Nvidia's cards with enhanced multi-display support.

Ubisoft changes Anno 2070 DRM after Guru3D critique
     Mon, Jan 30 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past week a news post of ours resulted in a lot of coverage on the web. Long story short -- while we where testing the RTS game Anno 2070 for PC (from Ubisoft) we ran into downright silly DRM copy protection issues. Each time after reinstalling a GeForce graphics card the DRM kicked back in, rendering the game inactivated. And as a policy, three strikes, an you are out. That said and with the VGA performance review posted moments ago we received an email from BlueByte and Ubisoft with a statement that they have changed their Tages DRM copy protection. We are very happy to see that the activation scheme has been changed for anybody and everybody who purchased and is purchasing the game, you may now swap out as many graphics cards as you want.

Anno 2070 VGA Graphics performance review
     Mon, Jan 30 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
history. The franchise decided to jump to the future, 58 years ahead of time. For Anno 2070 the graphics engine has been updated, the game is now DirectX 11 compatible. And as such it is time to throw a couple of graphics cards (well we can't say that nineteen graphics cards are a couple really) at it to see how well the game performs with DX11 cards Anno 2012. Check out the article here.

Sapphire Radeon HD6450 FleX Edition 1GB Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 11:22A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD?s Eyefinity Technology, have you heard of it? I?m sure you have, it?s what powers those multi-display setups that you?ve seen before. These multi-display setups give you massive desktop work-spaces and immersive gaming environments. The thing about getting Eyefinity setup is it can be difficult and confusing, especially if you don?t have the right displays off the bat. To make things easier Sapphire has come out with the FleX series of cards. Each FleX card allows you to plug in and run 3 monitors simultaneously from a single card. Today we will be taking a look at their low-cost solution the Radeon HD6450 FleX Edition."

Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6670 @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Jan 27 2012 | 9:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6670. This is, among other things a low-profile graphics card capable of being installed in an HTPC with half-height PCI brackets. Coming in at just under $90, this card is inexpensive in terms of the graphics world. I personally would expect to be able to play dated, and non-graphic intensive games with ease, let`s see if the HD 6670 can deliver - but first, lets get Sapphire`s take."

Galaxy GT 520 MDT Review
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 4:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The real benefit of this card from Galaxy is the ability to use up to four 1080p DVI monitors. This feat was not possible with run-of-the-mill Fermi based video cards since they are limited to two monitors from one card. Using Galaxy`s MDT EZY software allows the end user to configure the displays in either split mode where each display has a desktop interface or merged mode where the display is spanned across multiple screens. The software is used in combination with the resolution settings in the operating system to get the optimal resolution for each display. The software is easy to use with little resource overhead. A gaming card it is not, but as a unique addition to the GT 520 line up, the GT 520 MDT from Galaxy offers a low-cost way to create a lot of desktop real estate."

Sapphire HD 7970 3GB Video Cards in CrossFire Overclocked
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 4:14A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far we`ve had some good success when it comes to overclocking which we looked at in our HIS HD 7970 and XFX HD 7970 Black Edition Double Dissipation review. Adding a second card into the mix is known for limiting overclocking ability as cards are placed together and more heat is generated. Those numbers are then amplified due to the added voltage being thrown through the core of each GPU. Since we`ve already looked at the Sapphire HD 7970 in our original CrossFire review, we won`t need to have a look at the card again. Instead we`ll get straight into the testbed setup and quickly cover how we went with the overclock. Once we`ve done that we`ll just get straight into the performance."
