NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Performance
     Tue, May 17 2016 | 3:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks back, at a packed event in Austin, Texas filled with tech press and attendees from the DreamHack gaming event that took place up the road, NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun-Huang unveiled the company’s newest graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070. These latest flagships represent a true generational leap in performance and efficiency, thanks to NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture at their core and the bleeding-edge 16nm FinFET + VLSI manufacturing processes used to produce the chips. For the last few years, virtually all of the discrete GPUs being produced used a 28nm process. Mr. Huang made some lofty claims in regards to the GeForce GTX 1080’s efficiency and performance, and unveiled a number of new, interesting features as well, which worked the crowd up at the event into a frenzy. On site demos of the GTX 1080 were equally impressive. When we left the event, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on a card to evaluate its power and performance for ourselves. Thankfully, it wasn’t long until we had a GeForce GTX 1080 in hand. And today, 10 days before they are due to hit store shelves, we’re able to give you the full scoop...

ASUS GTX950-2G Unplugged Review
     Mon, May 16 2016 | 4:52P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the spotlight today is the GTX950-2G – otherwise known as GTX 950 Unplugged. This graphics card seeks to liberate system builders who simply want to upgrade their graphics card but perhaps lack the extra juice from the PSU. As mentioned, this GTX 950 is able to operate from the PCI express lane and yet still delivers the same great 1080p performance as other GTX 950s – ASUS has also added in a dual-fan cooling solution which keeps noise and temperatures down.

Doom (2016) running on Nvidia GTX1080
     Tue, May 10 2016 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
KitGuru had an invite to the Nvidia Editors Day Event last week, and the guys in green brought some of the ID software development team over to showcase Doom (2016). We managed to get a front row seat as Doom (2016) was running on a massive $100,000+ LED wall via the Vulkan API. Sadly the resolution was limited to 1080p, but the ID guys did uncap the frame rate part way through to highlight frame rate improvements from the upcoming flagship Nvidia GPU. One of the engineers Tom was playing the game as we watched it and you can just make him out bottom left in the video below. Sadly they didn’t detail the system specifications – apart from the fact it was powered by the upcoming Nvidia GTX1080 GPU.

AMD Radeon Pro Duo Benchmarked
     Sat, May 07 2016 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) has been teasing the product we will be presenting performance metrics for in the pages ahead, for almost year now. A dual-Fiji powered Radeon card was brought out on display by AMD's CEO Lisa Hsu last June, though at the time, no name had been designated for the card. Then last month, in a joint announcement with Crytek and the company's VR First initiative, AMD unveiled the 16 TFLOP Radeon Pro Duo at its Capsaicin event at GDC 2016 for the first time. There was significant build-up for this card, and rightfully so, with the potential for it to be the fastest single-board graphics card on the market, at least for a period of time. As you might imagine, we were more than a little surprised when AMD informed us they wouldn't be sampling the card to members of the Tech press... But that didn't stop of from getting our hands on one for testing.

Zotac GTX 980 Ti AMP! Edition Review
     Wed, May 04 2016 | 2:56P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This will probably be our last GTX 980 Ti review before the next generation of cards from Nvidia are released. The speculation is they will be named the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 continuing the product naming convention Nvidia have been using for quite a while now. If you forget the GTX Titan cards, out of the budget of most the natural flagship card is the Ti, at least judging by the GTX 980 Ti range and its performance. The production run has now been stopped, and less than a year after it started.

ASUS recently released a GTX 950 that runs without additional power connector, making it the fastest graphics card in this performance class. In our review we will test how the board deals with the 75 W power limit and how that affects performance.

AMD Radeon Pro Duo Preview: Fiji GPU x 2
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 2:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After almost a year of sneak peaks and strategic demos, AMD has finally begun shipping its dual-Fiji GPU powered graphics card, the Radeon Pro Duo. AMD is positioning the Radeon Pro Duo as a card for “gamers who create, and creators who game” and for budding VR developers in need of some monstrous compute performance, though the simple fact that it is packing a pair of AMD's current top-end GPUs will make it interesting to hardcore gamers with big budgets as well...

XFX R9 Fury Triple Dissipation
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Earlier reviews of the R9 Fury pointed out a lack of overclocking capability, especially when talking about the High Bandwidth Memory. I found that I was able to squeeze some additional clock speed headroom out of both the Fiji core and the HBM. In my testing I was able to see clock speed increases of over 10%. Pretty stout for a card with supposedly no overclocking headroom. In each case, the R9 Fury delivered improved gaming performance with the clock speed bump. To reach the tuned clock speeds I did have to push more current through the core. Usually this results in a significant bump in the card's thermals. However, the Tripe Dissipation cooling system XFX worked on does a phenomenal job at keeping the components cool. In fact, this has been one of the best cooling solution/GPU combos I have ever tested. XFX's six heat pipe, dual fin array solution just gets it done, and quietly. Even when the IP-5x fan speeds are cranked up, the noise penalty is not severe in any way. Especially when you have the chassis buttoned up.”

NVIDIA VR performance featuring ASUS
     Tue, Apr 26 2016 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite a few supply issues, the past two weeks have seen the commercial launch of two high-end virtual reality headsets from Oculus VR and HTC/Valve, so understandably there’s a lot of buzz about the topic. Part of that buzz is whether you have a system that is capable of powering a VR set up, which requires quite a hefty PC.
