Sparkle GeForce GT430 1024MB DDR3 Low Profile
     Thu, Feb 10 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "I’ve got another Sparkle video card for review today, no it’s not another GT240, it’s the GT430. It’s a small low-profile card so it would work great with an HTPC, or a small, basic gaming system. You’re not going to be playing Crysis on it but it can handle some other light gaming and as a plus it is Direct X 11 capable. "

PowerColor Radeon HD 6950 2GB PCS++ graphics card review
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 5:08P | Video Cards | PermaLink

Is it a Radeon HD 6950 or a Radeon HD 6970? PowerColor gives you the best of both worlds.

PowerColor Radeon PCS++ 6950
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 5:08P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Sporting a custom heatsink that promises lower temperatures and noise, the PowerColor PCS++ 6950 has a very special trick up its sleeve to cap off some amazing performance potential: a dual BIOS. But not just any plain old dual BIOS. This card has a second BIOS that unlocks streamprocessors and boosts the clock speeds, essentially giving us a Radeon 6970 at a far cheaper price.”

nVidia GeForce GTX 460 Graphics Card
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 5:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With nVidia's launch of the GTX 570/580 series video cards last November, prices on the 400 models have slowly begun to decline. As Shawn noted in our recent Zotac GTX 480 review, retailers simply can't continue to sell previous generation cards at the same price as the new ones, and most manufacturers are offering rebates and other incentives to move out existing stock. At the same time nVidia quietly added the GTX 460 SE to its lineup, a cheaper version of the original 460, at the expense of some of its performance. With the January release of the GTX 560 Ti, we're seeing even deeper cuts on the 400 series cards, such as this nVidia GeForce GTX 460 from Computer Geeks."

ASUS HD 6970 DirectCU II Graphics Card Review

Posted by: STAFF
We will be running this enhanced version of the 6970 through a selection of real world tests to find out how it compares to the GTX 570 and will include maximum overclock results in each case... all on an i7 CPU running at 4.4GHz."

EVGA GeForce GTX560 Ti SuperClocked Video Card Review
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Due to the overclocked nature of the EVGA GTX560 Ti SuperClocked we witnessed some real performance gains over the stock card which also translated extremely well when paired up in SLI.

GeForce GTX 460 1GB Razor card
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you are looking for a single slot graphics card and want to get as much performance as possible in as small a space as possible, the Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 1GB Razor is the only place to look for an air cooled solution. The only two drawbacks are the extended length of the PCB that might affect smaller cases and the higher price. Galaxy though continues to push the boundaries of graphics card design and we welcome any and all competition."

ASUS GTX 570
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS GTX 570 is a factory overclocked card, so I had high hopes for the clock speeds that this one would reach. NVIDIA's reference GTX 570 was able to reach clock speeds of 785MHz. Seeing as the ASUS GTX 570 was clocked just 43MHz below this, I knew it was going to surpass the reference overclock. In the end, we were able to up the core clock to an impressive 933MHz. Unfortunately we weren't able to get as large of an increase out of the memory clocks. We were however, able to up the memory speeds to 1092MHz. Last but not least, the shader clocks. The factory overclock put the ASUS GTX 570's shader clock at 1484MHz. We of course wanted to see a large increase in clock speeds, and that's just what we got. We were able to increase the shader clock speeds to 1866MHz."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Unlocked to HD 6970
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just recently we were given some exciting news. We found out that it was possible to flash the HD 6950 with a HD 6970 BIOS and in turn make your $299 HD 6950 a $369 HD 6970, and really we don't have to tell you how cool that would be. So we grabbed our closest HD 6950 to us which was a Sapphire and proceeded to flash it with a Sapphire HD 6970 BIOS. Thanks to our friends at TechPowerUp, we used WINFLASH, a Windows based program that gives you the ability to flash and save the BIOS of supported video cards."

ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II vs Gainward GeForce GTX 580 Phantom3
     Mon, Feb 07 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Over the past couple of weeks, while the GTX 560 Ti was being released, a number of manufacturers released enhanced GTX 580s which were designed to offer desirable alternatives to the reference model. Some have enhanced coolers or redesigned PCB's. Others use higher quality components and have factory overclocks to appeal to enthusiasts. Today on our test bench we have two of the most impressive looking models to compare, Gainward's 3GB GTX 580 Phantom3 and the massive Asus GTX 580 DirectCU 2. We will be comparing these cards to the reference 580 and an overclocked 6970 to find out how good they actually are. Tests will include real world gaming, 3DMark 11, media playback, and GPU computing. Then, for the first time on Hardware Heaven, all gaming tests will include stereoscopic 3D testing."

GIGABYTE GTX 480 SOC: Faster Than The GTX 580?
     Sat, Feb 05 2011 | 5:21P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GIGABYTE GTX 480 SOC has quite a bit of performance up its sleeves. With factory overclocked frequencies, the GTX 480 SOCruns at 820 MHz Core Clock speed, 1640 MHz Shader Clock (or in another words Processor Clock speed), and 3800 MHz memory Clock frequency. The reference speeds from Nvidia that most manufacturers use on their stock cards run at 700 MHz Core Clock, 1401 MHz Shader Clock speed, and 3696 MHz memory clock frequency. So we can definitely see some performance increase in the frequencies all around. With the GTX 480 SOC's components and cooler, there is more overclocking potential possible, and it will be interesting to see if it is possible to reach the speeds that current GTX 580s run at without breaking a sweat on overclocking.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition 1GB DX11 Video Card Review
     Sat, Feb 05 2011 | 5:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex Edition 1GB video card makes Eyefinity even easier. Using an onboard Analogix chip, the HD 6870 Flex Edition takes the need for a DP adapter completely away. Now, you can simply plug 3 DVI (or in my case 2 DVI and 1 HDMI) monitors in and get instant SLS (Single Layer Surface) Eyefinity goodness. Any additional monitors will need to use the Display Ports. In all, the Flex Edition can support up to 5 total displays. The Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 Flex edition retains the stock 6870 configuration under the hood. The HD 6870's core speed is 900 MHz and includes 1GB DDR5 memory set at 1050 MHz. There are 1120 Stream processors and more than enough power for play and/or productivity."

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.
