Sapphire Radeon HD 6770
     Tue, Jun 14 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Continuing to ensure that Linux benchmarks on the latest AMD Radeon HD graphics processors are available, the kind people at Sapphire have sent over another Radeon HD 6000 series graphics card. After previously reviewing the Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 and Sapphire Radeon HD 6870, up now is the Sapphire Radeon HD 6770. The Radeon HD 6770 (and HD 6750) up until recently was just offered to OEM builders, but now Sapphire has begun selling various products with these graphics processors, which end up being re-branded Radeon HD 5770/5750 "Juniper" graphics processors."

MSI GTX 560 Ti-448 1280MB Twin Frozr III Power Edition Overclocked
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The other day we checked out the brand new MSI GTX 560 Ti-448 1280MB Twin Frozr III Power Edition and found ourselves extremely impressed what the limited edition model from NVIDIA was offering us for the holiday season. Being part of the Power Edition series from MSI, though, means that it stands out more so than a lot of other companies, and via the help of MSI Afterburner we`re able to overclock the card. Today we`ll be firing up MSI Afterburner and seeing just what we can do on the overclocking side. Knowing MSI, the Power Edition should give us a decent overclock and we should hopefully see a nice boost in performance. Before we get into the performance side of things, though, the first thing we need to do is check out our test system setup. Once we`ve done that we`ll quickly cover how we went with the overclocking side of things before we of course run the card through our gauntlet."

ASUS HD 6950
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"By using either ASUS Smart Doctor or the commonly available Afterburner overclocking applications I was able to push the speeds up for additional performance. However, to get to the top clock speeds the voltage had to be tweaked some to reach the final clock speeds of 965MHz on the core and 1505MHz on the GDDR5 memory. Any higher than 965MHz on the core and stability was dependent on the game or test and could be pushed as high as 976MHz on the core, again depending on the game or test. Still even with that, 965MHz represents an almost 20% bump in core clock speed. The GDDR5 memory also yielded some big clock speed up to the overclocking gods with a 255MHz or just over a 20% increase over the default 1250MHz."

EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti OC

Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti is a direct and aggressively priced competitor to AMD’s Radeon HD 5770/6770. After the launch, most of the OEMs decided to come to market with own designs. Now we can have a look at one of the few NVIDIA reference designs: the EVGA GeForce GTX 500 Ti OC.

A Historical Look At Intel Ironlake Graphics Performance
     Sat, Jun 11 2011 | 6:43A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
""For the past five months when mentioning Intel graphics at Phoronix, it`s been pretty much about their latest-generation Sandy Bridge hardware and most recently about their next-generation Ivy Bridge. The talk has either been about new hardware enablement, performance improvements, or bad regressions. In this article, we are going a generation back to look at how the Clarkdale/Arrandale-Ironlake graphics performance has evolved under Linux over the course of Ubuntu releases."""

AMD FirePro V5900

Posted by: STAFF
""This morning AMD is rolling out two new FirePro workstation graphics cards, the FirePro V5900 and FirePro V7900. At Phoronix we received both of these graphics cards last week and have information on these new Cayman-derived graphics cards along with the very first Linux benchmarks of this new hardware compared to previous-generation FirePro offerings. In this review, we are first looking at the mid-range AMD FirePro V5900."""

MSI R6850 Cyclone Power Edition
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"MSI is very good about hyping their Cyclone series heat sink and based on this review, for good reason. The R6850 Cyclone Power Edition performed admirably in the temperature testing, maintaining homeostasis within its realm with refinement and poise. The card is much quieter than a majority of reference cooling solutions out there making it an ideal pull for gamers and movie watchers alike. Perhaps making the card a quality bid for that dorm room build you’ve been planning forever?"

Diamond VStream

Posted by: STAFF
"Going back to the first question that I had asked at the beginning, do you ever wish you could wirelessly transmit your Laptop's screen to your HDTV? Well if you have ever wished this, then Diamond's VStream is exactly what you are looking for to do this. The Diamond VStream device does allow you to use a USB wireless dongle to transmit data from a PC, to the HD Base of the setup that will then send the signal via an HDMI cable to your HDTV or other display device. Setting up the Diamond VStream was very simple and easy to do."

Triple Monitor Gaming: GeForce GTX 590 vs. Radeon HD 6990
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the dual-GPU AMD Radeon HD 6990, closely followed by the competing Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 we saw graphics card performance reach new heights. With bandwidth throughput in excess of 300GB/s, these cards can consume more power than entire computer systems. Moreover, the two GPUs on board of either product are so complex that combined make up for 11,000 million transistors. By utilizing three monitors games can become roughly 3x more demanding as the graphics card is required to render an overwhelmingly higher number of pixels. Whereas we commonly test graphics cards at single monitor resolutions of 1680x1050 (22”), 1920x1200 (24”) and 2560x1600 (30”), today we are taking these and adding two more LCD monitors for effective resolutions of 5040x1050, 5760x1200 and 7680x1600.

HIS Radeon HD 6850 & 6870 IceQ X Turbo Crossfire Review
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking at the market today, the Radeon HD 6850 remains one of the best options available to gamers shopping for a sub-$200 GPU, while the Radeon HD 6870 still commands the sub-$250 bracket with its only real competition coming from the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. It's not very often that we see mainstream-level GPUs settle down for long, in this case it appears there's nothing too big on the horizon and thus we were pleased to hear that HIS was preparing an update for all card versions this year. The factory-overclocked 6870 IceQ X Turbo X and HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo have upgraded coolers and are meant to be the fastest 6850 and 6870 graphics cards available out of the box -- albeit at a premium price. The 6870 IceQ X Turbo X is currently retailing for $250, while the 6850 IceQ X Turbo costs $190. Being the inquisitive type, we're determined to see if the extra fee is worthwhile.

Gigabyte GTX 560 SuperOverclock
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The GeForce GTX 560 is a cutdown version of its more expensive sibling, the GTX 560 Ti. What's really interesting, however, is that the 560 costs considerably less. But beyond the reference design card, however, some manufacturers are taking what appears to already be an impressive product and pushing things further, and Gigabyte is doing this with a custom heatsink and factory overclock for their GTX 560 Super Overclock.”

AMD Radeon HD 6870 CrossFire with 5x1 Eyefinity
     Wed, Jun 08 2011 | 6:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the performance of more mainstream cards on the rise, monitor prices on a downward slide, and support for 5x1 Eyefinity available (sort of), we decided to see what a pair of Radeon HD 6870 cards running in CrossFire mode could do with a quintet of screen out in front. The cleanest way to pull off a 5x1 Eyefinity configuration, without using an array of adapters, is with a card that has at least five, similar outputs, connected to matching monitors. To that end, we got our hands on a pair of PowerColor Radeon HD 6870 2GB Eyefinity 6 Edition cards and five Dell 22” screens with DisplayPort inputs...

AMD Radeon HD 6790 Overclocking Guide
     Tue, Jun 07 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking your graphics card is a very quick and easy way to get a little extra performance out of your system. The overclock we used when testing our Radeon HD 6790 should be considered as a maximum air-cooled overclock for this particular card. That said, we expect that almost all cards will reach 950MHz, which is still an impressive 110MHz increase or 13% boost in frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 590 (3072MB)
     Tue, Jun 07 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte version of the GeForce GTX 590 is a very impressive graphics card, even if it does follow the Nvidia reference design to a tee. However the inclusion of the Gigabyte M8000Xtreme gaming mouse is very nice, as is the package that it all comes in. Gigabyte has also included a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort female cable adapter which allows those with a standard DisplayPort cable to use this feature

PowerColor HD 6950 Vortex II 2 GB
     Sun, Jun 05 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor's new HD 6950 Vortex II comes with a seriously improved thermal solution compared to the AMD reference design. It also offers two adjustable fans that can be configured to make maximum use of available space. Clock speeds have been increased too, and the card was able to be modded to a HD 6970 in our testing.

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.
