Examining Nvidia’s Driver Progress Since Launch Drivers: GTX 780 Ti & GTX 680
     Wed, Jan 21 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over a month ago we published our AMD driver analysis article looking at the progress two generations of AMD flagship GPUs, the HD 7970 and R9 290X, had made with driver updates. We compared each flagship card’s launch drivers to the latest drivers and calculated the improvements in a variety of games and benchmarks. Now that we’ve done AMD it is of course time to do the same for Nvidia. We will be taking Nvidia’s last two GTX series flagships, the GTX 680 for the GTX 600 series and the GTX 780 Ti for the GTX 700 series, and comparing their launch drivers to the current latest drivers. This means for both graphics cards we will be testing two scenarios on identical test systems, the first scenario is with the drivers the graphics cards shipped with at launch and the second is the most current driver release for the graphics cards at the time of doing the testing.

Sapphire R9 285 Dual-X OC Review
     Wed, Jan 21 2015 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week AMD launched their new R9 285 graphics card. Today we look at the second design to hit our labs, the new Sapphire R9 285 Dual-X OC – as we would expect, this card is supplied in an overclocked state and with a custom twin fan cooling system. Is it worth the £179.99 asking price?

Posted by: STAFF
Today on our test bench we have the fastest AMD Radeon R9 270X offering from ASUS in the form of the ASUS DirectCU II TOP model. We will compare it to a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 to see who reigns supreme at just over the $200 price point. We will compare it to a GeForce GTX 760, and overclock the R9 270X as high as it will go.

Sapphire Dual-X AMD R9 285 “Tonga” 2GB Graphics Card Review
     Tue, Jan 20 2015 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After much anticipation and speculation we can finally present our review of AMD’s new “Tonga” based graphics card. Today we are reviewing Tonga Pro, that’s the first iteration of Tonga, which forms the R9 285 graphics card. It is expected that a Tonga XT variant will arrive at a later date to form the R9 285X. We’ve already known the specifications of the R9 285 for a while since AMD officially revealed them a few weeks back, but let’s go over them again:

ASUS STRIX GTX 750 Ti OC Edition Video Card Reviewed
     Sun, Jan 18 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At COMPUTEX 2014, Futurelooks had a chance to check out a new series of hardware and peripherals called STRIX. Unlike ROG, which is geared towards hardcore enthusiasts and overclockers, STRIX is more for the mainstream gamer looking for great performance, factory overclocks, low noise, as well as exceptional stability. The ASUS STRIX GTX 750 Ti OC Edition video card is not only factory overclocked, but ASUS says it can run perfectly silent when the GPU isn’t doing a lot of work, but still runs virtually silent when you are gaming."

GeForce GTX 980 was a great gaming solution
     Sun, Jan 18 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you thought one GeForce GTX 980 was a great gaming solution, wait till you see what GeForce GTX 980 SLI can do for gaming at 4K. We look at performance, efficiency, and even a little 1440p SLI goodness. However though, some of the results may not be what you would exactly expect.

XFX states that it is faster than the GTX 760, but that is based on a single synthetic benchmark, let's see how it holds up in real world gaming.

Gigabyte G1 Gaming GeForce GTX 980 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Sat, Jan 17 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia’s GTX 980 is now official and with it comes the wonders of the Maxwell architecture for high-end desktop users. In this review we are taking a look at Gigabyte’s custom cooled G1 Gaming GTX 980 graphics card, pictured above, but we encourage you to check out our Nvidia GTX 980 review first if you haven’t already done so. That review will give you more background on the basis of the Maxwell GTX 980 graphics card whereas this review is more focused on what Gigabyte have done with their GTX 980 to make it different. On paper the most obvious change is a hefty overclock of 100+ MHz in tandem with an unlocking of the GTX 980's power limit to unleash all of its power.

Asus R9 285 STRIX Review
     Fri, Jan 16 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are in the market for a new graphics card – statistically you will be shopping in the sub £200 sector. While the R9 295X2 may grab all the headlines it is priced out of reach for all but the wealthiest of enthusiast gamer. This week AMD release their latest addition to the R9 family – the R9 285. Rather than take a look at a lackluster AMD reference cooled solution, we managed to get our hands on the new Asus R9 285 Strix – which features a very interesting semi passive fan configuration.

20-Way Radeon Comparison With Open-Source
     Thu, Jan 15 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When it comes to Linux gamers wanting a discrete graphics card backed by open-source drivers, the only solution right now to truly recommend for those serious about performance and making use of the hardware is really AMD Radeon graphics. While Nouveau has been making much progress, until re-clocking and other issues are worked out the performance can be unbearably slow depending upon the particular graphics processor or run into other problems. (Of course, when talking about proprietary graphics drivers on Linux, the story is entirely different, or if considering integrated Intel HD Graphics.) For those pursuing a AMD Radeon GPU for their own Steam Box/Machine build and hope to use the open-source Gallium3D drivers, here's some Steam on Linux gaming benchmarks from almost two dozen different GPUs."

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.
