Posted by: STAFF
HardwareOverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have take a look at the Gigabyte GTX 970 WindForce 3X videocard. The GTX 970 is very popular but which manufacturer should you buy? We have tested Gigabyte GTX 970 WindForce 3X and the performance, also the OC features are great. Maybe that`s the right card for you? Title: Gigabyte GTX 970 WindForce 3X @ HardwareOverclock.com"

Sapphire R9 285 Dual-X OC Video Card Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 5:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Tonga-based Sapphire R9 285 Dual-X. Along with the architecture enhancements found in the new Hawaii cards, this 285 also sports Sapphire`s tried and true dual-fan heat-pipe based cooler. With Tonga`s lower power draw combined with a quality cooler, we can expect some low temps, quiet operation, and plenty of overclocking headroom. Read on to see how it performs."

PowerColor R9 285 TurboDuo OC Review @ ocaholic
     Sun, Nov 23 2014 | 5:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the TurboDuo OC, PowerColor has a Radeon R9 285 in its portfolio, which is based on a reference PCB and a custom cooler. Apart from that there is a tiny factory overclock and this particular card retails at a very reasonalbe price. Overall this is reason enough for find out what exactly this card can do. "

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Edition @ Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Nov 19 2014 | 4:59P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The launch of the Maxwell GPUs, the GTX 970 and GTX 980 has been impressive. It has been a long time since a new generation so utterly has made its previous generation cards as well as most of the competitors cards obsolete. And while the GTX 980 of course is the performance leader it is the GTX 970 that has caught a lot of peoples eyes as it offers excellent performance for its low price. Today we are testing the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme Edition card, a pre-overclocked GeForce GTX 970 card with custom fans. And as expected we came away very impressed. "

ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 970 OC Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 6:35P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Take a Maxwell Core, overclock it and then add arguably the best air cooling solution available and what do you get? The ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC. This card appears to have it all, the latest technology from NVIDIA, supreme cooling in the form of the ASUS Direct CU II and a subtle, yet significant factory overclock."

MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G Review
     Sun, Nov 16 2014 | 10:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After seeing what the reference GTX 980 was capable of in our launch review, I was really looking forward to working on the non-reference designs. That wait was worth it considering the clock speeds attained by simply pushing the sliders to the right in MSI`s own Afterburner application. To reach the maximum clock speeds that this card would deliver on air, I set the power limit to the max level and started pushing the clock speeds. It`s really as simple as bumping the speeds and then testing stability with a significant 3D load. I use a combination of looping Unigine`s Heaven 4.0 test with the maximum settings at 1920x1080, then following up with some 3DMark testing. Using this slimmed down approach, I was able to bump the core clock speed turbo boost speed to 1525MHz, or about 75MHz higher than the reference card`s overclock on both the memory and GPU core. Thanks to MSI`s custom build and component selection, we get even higher clock speeds capable if you push the limits, and with cooler temperatures. By overclocking this card, I saw a nice 800+ point boost in 3DMark`s Fire Strike Extreme test."

MSI GS60 2QE Ghost Pro 3K Gold Edition Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Nov 15 2014 | 3:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Taking on the rather long identifier, GS60 2QE Ghost Pro 3K Gold Edition features a solid lineup of high-quality components. Intel`s new Core i7-4710HQ sits at the heart of the notebook, supported by 16GB DDR3, NVIDIA`s new GTX 970M and 512TGB SATA III SSD in RAID0. This gold-themed notebook has even more to offer so let`s waste no further time and begin our review."

If the GTX 970 version of the STRIX from ASUS wasn`t enough, then maybe the GTX 980 version we`ve got today is what you`re after. Here`s Shawn`s review."

MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:58P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI was right on the ball with the new Maxwell 970 offering. MSI has always been pretty quick to get their own cards out but this time around they were the first to get us a custom model card for a new GPU launch which is very cool as it shows they are being very proactive on getting their cards into hands for not only testing but purchase even faster which of course means more available for all the gamers out there. The GTX 970 Gaming 4G is overclocked to a point that it can match or best most current gen flagship models or keep it really close. The new cooler design cools the card very well and is passive under normal desktop usage, yet when hopping in 3D and the fan spins up but even when overclocked we can say we didn’t remember ever hearing the fan at all.

CUDA core count of 1536
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards last month, part of the discussion at our meetings also centered around the mobile variants of Maxwell. The NDA was a bit later though and Scott wrote up a short story announcing the release of the GTX 980M and the GTX 970M mobility GPUs. Both of these GPUs are based on the same GM204 design as the desktop cards, though as you should have come to expect by now, do so with lower specifications than the similarly-named desktop options. With a CUDA core count of 1536, the GTX 980M has 33% fewer shader cores than the desktop GTX 980, along with a slightly lower base clock speed. The result is a peak theoretical performance of 3.189 TFLOPs, compared to 4.6 TFLOPs on the GTX 980 desktop. In fact, that is only slightly higher than the GTX 880M based on Kepler, that clocks in with the same CUDA core count (1536) but a TFLOP capability of 2.9. Bear in mind that the GTX 880M is using a different architecture design than the GTX 980M; Maxwell's design advantages go beyond just CUDA core count and clock speed.

Zotac ZBox PI320 Mini-PC Review and Teardown eMMC At Its Best
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 7:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back, Zotac sent us a ZBox Pico PI320 Mini PCS and, for the life of me, I could find a place to start. At 115.5mm x 66mm x 19.2 mm, this mini-PC is just about the size of two iPhones on top of one another and has to be the smallest full feature PC available. No matter how much I looked at it though, an effective use for such a device seemed to escape me. I mean. it is as true of a definition as one can get to a pocket PC and it is a very attractive looking device, but to be completely frank, it wasnt until I first plugged this in that I truly fell in love with the ZBox PI320. You are not going to believe the absolute genius of this concept and its final use. Stay tuned!"

ZOTAC GTX 780 AMP! Edition Graphics Card Review @ TechwareLabs
     Tue, Nov 11 2014 | 4:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About a year ago ZOTAC introduced us to the GTX 780 AMP! edition, and this card is still one of the best cards on the market. The original GTX 780 is a beast right out of the box, which offers a ton of overclocking potential and can run about every game you throw at it on it`s highest levels. The ZOTAC gtx 780 AMP! edition pushes this card a notch further, offering a card with an incredible core clock (1006 MHz (base) 1059 MHz (boost)) and 2,304 cores for about $40 more than the cheapest stock cards. The gtx 780 AMP! edition not only offers better performance, it also runs notably cooler and quieter which is always a nice improvement for any piece of computer hardware."

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.
