Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia have been selling GTX970 and GTX980 cards by the truckload since the very successful launch earlier this month. We have already reviewed a handful of GTX970 partner cards and today we supplement our findings by analysing the latest Asus GTX980 Strix OC. This card features a hefty cooling system and hybrid fan configuration to lower noise emissions as far as possible.

ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC Review - Silent But Deadly
     Tue, Jun 16 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When nVidia announced their 10th generation Maxwell architecture it was hotly anticipated and back in February we got to see the first GPUs based on it: the GM107 based 750 and 750 Ti. While those products offered much in terms of power efficiency, they were but a taste of what was to come. After months of waiting and delays, nVidia has finally released the first of its GTX 900 series based on the GM204 GPU core. – and today we have the pleasure of reviewing the ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC. We’ll start with an overview of the GPU and its cooler as well as the new features introduced with the 900 series and then it’s down to the nitty-gritty with some performance benchmarks and game tests.

Sapphire R9 285 2GB ITX Compact OC Edition Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Jun 15 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The popularity of compact graphics cards for small form factor systems has risen in recent years. This is mainly due to AMD and Nvidia making great strides in power and thermal efficiency which allows for more performance in smaller packages. The fact mini-ITX and micro-ATX cases have been popularised by a swath of releases from BitFenix, Corsair, Cooler Master and others also helped this trend. Before the release of Tonga AMD’s R9 270X was the fastest mini-ITX sized graphics card available while Nvidia’s GTX 760 was their fastest. With Tonga that’s set to change as we can now find much more AMD performance – in fact the R9 285 outpaces the GTX 760 so we should have a new mini-ITX graphics card winner on our hands.Sapphire’s ITX Compact OC Edition R9 285 is designed with small form factor users in mind measuring in at just 17.5 cm long yet still featuring a fully fledged R9 285 GPU with a 10 MHz factory overclock – not much but proof that Sapphire’s cooling solution has what it takes. Let’s take a detailed look at the key specifications:

MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G
     Sat, Jun 13 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very much on the heels of the Maxwell and GTX 980 launch was the partner cards and the first GTX 980 model we received much like the 970 we recently looked at is the MSI Gaming 4G edition. First of all the cooler for these cards simply look beastly but also if this card proves to be any shade as impressive as the 970 we saw before then gamers are in for a real treat.

Posted by: STAFF
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Palit GeForce GTX 750 Ti KalmX We review the Palit GeForce GTX 750 Ti KalmX. Palit's offering is the most silent of them all, as it uses passive cooling. That's right, just a big heatsink is being used. The KalmX runs reference clock frequencies and is based on a customized PCB with that new model cooler that will keep the product nicely inaudible.

Testing Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980 4GB Graphics Cards In SLI
     Wed, Jun 10 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At eTeknix we were fortunate enough to have received a pair of GTX 980s for Nvidia’s launch day so we thought we’d see what they have to offer in SLI. When running a pair of the same GPUs in SLI it is ideal to get identical graphics cards for the most consistency of cooling, clock speeds, VRAM sizes and so on. In our case that wasn’t possible as we have one GTX 980 from Nvidia which is the reference model (check our review of that here) and we have one GTX 980 from Gigabyte which is their flagship G1 Gaming model (check our review of that here). For our SLI testing both the GTX 980s were driving an ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q

We hope it will prove to be a useful reference. We will keep this guide updated regularly so do check back for the latest updates.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 4GB “Maxwell” (28nm) Graphics Card Review
     Tue, Jun 09 2015 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia’s newest Maxwell architecture first made its appearance in February this year when Nvidia revealed their entry level GTX 750 Ti graphics card. One of the obvious hallmarks of Maxwell, that the GTX 750 Ti revealed, was an incredible level of power efficiency as well as a drastic increase in compute performance. Since Nvidia gave us a taste of Maxwell we’ve been eagerly awaiting that high-end variant and that’s exactly what we get today with the GTX 980's launch. The GTX 980 is a direct upgrade of Nvidia’s “middle” desktop GPU; it takes the GK104 and bumps it up to GM204. This means one of two things; firstly, the GTX 980 is the true successor to the GTX 680/GTX 770 and secondly, the GTX 980 means we will see an even higher end GM210 Maxwell part arrive later to replace GK110. However, let’s not get ahead of ourselves as today is all about GM204. GM204 is 28nm Maxwell, just like the GTX 750 Ti, which means all the rumours about the potential for Nvidia to release two iterations of Maxwell; one 28nm and one next year based on 20 or 16nm, remain credible.

GTX 980 SLI Testing @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Jun 08 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After taking a look at the Titan X last week it really got me thinking. Currently you can pick up two GTX 980s for the price of one Titan X. That leaves me wondering how well two GTX 980s would perform in SLI compared to the Titan X. Well it just so happens I had two GTX 980’s in use in the office so I put them to the test. Today I’m going to take a quick look at their performance and see if they are a better buy than a single Titan X.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Reviewed: Gaming And The Ultimate 4K Streamer
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To recap a bit, the Tegra X1 features a Maxwell-derived GPU and eight CPU cores; four ARM A57 cores and four A53s. The A57 cores are 64-bit, out-of-order designs with multi-issue pipelines, while the A53 cores are simpler, in-order, highly-efficient designs. Which cores are used will depend on the particular workload being executed at the time. The Tegra X1 also packs a 256-core Maxwell-derived GPU with the same programming capabilities and API support as NVIDIA’s desktop GPUs. And it has a video engine capable of full speed 4K 60FPS video playback...
