Palit NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Sonic Platinum Launch Review
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 4:47P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When NVIDIA launched their GTX 550 Ti a couple of months ago as a follow up to the GTX 560 Ti most consumers would have assumed that was it for models that are in the midrange GeForce product stack. As it turns out that isn't the case and in the £75 or so price gap between those two products NVIDIA have found room to place the focus of today's review, the GTX 560 (no Ti). For anyone looking to upgrade their system for 1080p gaming NVIDIA claim this GPU will deliver for less than $199(£150)... let's find out if it does as we take a look at the Palit Sonic Platinum edition of the new GTX 560 in a selection of real world gaming tests mixed with some 3D playback, GPU computing and media tasks."

ASUS HD6990 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two cores will require more power, emit more heat and this usually translates to more noise to keep that heat under control. Previous designs had received negative feedback because the noise the cards make were very loud, often so much so that they were very intrusive when using them for what they were designed for, gaming. The card we have today is of a reference design and as such it remains to be seen whether the cooler has been adapted to create less of a din than previous editions. We will certainly be closely examining the cooler and acoustics of the card to see what innovations, if any, have taken place.

ASUS EAH5550 Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the EAH5550 ASUS has AMD's low end product in its portfolio that comes with PCB layout made by ASUS themselves. This card is based on the RV870 architecture which has been fully reworked for the entry level market. Never the less we're curious how this thing will perform in our benchmark parcours. For a small teaser: this card proves quite decent and overclocking was a lot of fun.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Dirt 3 Edition Video Card Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Like the previous Dirt game, Dirt 2, the latest iteration from Codemasters, Dirt 3, is another big release for AMD. While maybe not quite as big as the second one which saw the implementation of DirectX 11, one would argue that this one could be even bigger because of the rave reviews the game has received, making it not only a game that looks good, but also a game that's good to play. So with the release of another high profile game for AMD, we've seen their partners begin to bundle the game in the form of keys with their video cards. While most companies have just added the bundle to the package, Sapphire has instead chosen to create a "Dirt 3" Edition of the card to coincide with the release. At first I thought the "Dirt 3" Edition was just going to be the same HD 6950 we've seen from Sapphire before, but with the inclusion of Dirt 3. Instead, though, we've got a new cooler on hand that looks like it will hit the spot."

Sapphire 6950 DiRT 3 Edition
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Sapphire Radeon 6950 DiRT 3 Edition graphics card, as you can surmise, comes with an excellent value-added bonus of including a hot new game title with its latest 6950 model. But it also comes with a custom heatsink, promising lower temperatures and noise levels, as we often see from AMD's biggest board partner. We love a great deal as much as anyone, and the combination of a free game, low noise and temperatures on this latest card from Sapphire leaves us very intruigued. Can it live up to expectations? Let's dive in and take a closer look at the Sapphire 6950 DiRT 3 Edition and found out.”

ASUS MATRIX GeForce GTX 580 1536MB Platinum OC’ed Video Card Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Over the last few months we've seen MSI do some wonderful things to the GTX 580, releasing the model into its Lightning series and then during Computex re-releasing the GTX 580 in 3GB form also under the Lightning series; but in this case it was the Lightning Xtreme Edition. Someone else has done something with the GTX 580, but I can't really remember who; it's probably got something to do with the fact we haven't seen it. Anyway, the latest company to go all out with the model is ASUS with it getting the ROG MATRIX treatment. Imagine a facial with an electric sander to make everything smooth. It's big, it's fat, it's got lots of extra buttons and it looks powerful. Today we intend to find out if it performs as good as it looks, because oh does it looks good."

Introducing the Matrox SMD-2 for Large-Scale High-Density IP Video Decoding
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Matrox Graphics Inc. today introduces the Matrox SMD-2 streaming media decoder, a second-generation universal IP video decode solution designed to decode – in parallel – large numbers of network video streams in different resolutions and formats. The ideal building block for large-scale IP video decode applications, each SMD-2 board can simultaneously decode up to 64 QCIF, 16 D1, or 2 HD 1080 streams. By combining multiple SMD-2 boards within a single system, users can decode and display hundreds of IP streams on any video display wall. In light of their newly announced partnership, Matrox Graphics and Trenton are currently working together to engineer a validated system capable of supporting multiple SMD-2 cards within a single chassis, to be available later in the year. SMD-2 is fully integrated with the Matrox PPX Series and will be compatible with the Mura MPX Series later in the summer. With its capacity to cost-effectively support large-scale, high-density IP stream decoding, the Matrox SMD-2 is ideal for use in security surveillance, public security, and critical infrastructure sectors.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 Flex
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the process of shifting the product lineup to the Radeon HD 6000 series, AMD rebranded the 5770s to 6770s. So nobody should expect a significant difference. Anyhow Sapphire promises some advantages in the Radeon HD 6770 Flex that HT4U.net is exploring in the review.

Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire HD6670 Ultimate was able to give me a maximum clock of 870 MHz on the GPU core and 1140 MHz on the memory core, the Sapphire HD6750 was able to hit a maximum of 840 MHz on the GPU clock and the memory clock was a maximum of 1340 MHz. Finally the HD6770 had a maximum GPU Core clock of 960 MHz and 1320 MHz on the memory clock."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently explored Sapphire's FleX edition of the new HD 6770, a black sheep in the new Northern Islands family still running on a Juniper-based core. Though it has a great value, the true entry-level cards for the 6xxx series are the 6450, 6570, and the 6670. Today we'll be sitting down with the latter of the three, to see if Sapphire adds a little extra value to the package.

Sapphire HD 6750 Video Card Review

"With a price tag of just $100, the Sapphire HD 6750 is a low to mid-range video card offering performance on a budget. Time to stress and strip the card to see how it compares to two of its bigger brothers."

Nvidia reloads their 400-series lineup
     Tue, Jun 21 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sniper is on the prowl again as Nvidia reloads their 400-series lineup. The new GTX 550 Ti option for gamers is aimed at people who want more performance than the GTS 450, while maintaining a price point below the 460 (~$150). Equipped with faster clocks and a wider 192-bit memory interface, the GTX 550 Ti should provide you with about 28% faster performance on average, and 20% more performance/watt. Will the new Sniper lay waste to the older, slower 450 sniper? Continue on…

ASUS Radeon HD 6870 Video Card Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With killer looks and performance to match the ASUS Radeon HD 6870 at $199.99 shipped with a 3 year warranty fits right in there with the rest of the cards in its class. With features such as the Direct CU cooling system and the ability to bump up the voltage with a custom made driver it seems like you can't go wrong with the ASUS Radeon HD 6870. It did perform well in all of our benchmarks and tests and even without the use of the special ASUS driver we were able to overclock this bad boy to 1GHz without any problem, and I am sure we will be able to go even higher once we can adjust the voltage..."

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC Video Card Review
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Nvidia GTX 560 SC (Fermi) GPU is based on the very same core as the Nvidia GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) Video Card and comes fully equipped with 336 CUDA cores, 56 texture units and 32 ROPs. With the included 7 Polymorph Engines for proper tessellation you are now armed and ready to play some of the most advanced Direct 11 games on the market now and those in the very near future. Although it is very similar in every way to the GTX 460, instead of using the GF 104 core the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC (Fermi) Video Card makes use of the Fermi based GF 114 core that allows the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC (01G-P3-1461-KR) to obtain higher clock speeds while using less power overall. So not only will you be getting more performance, you will be getting that performance for darn near the same amount of money a whole year later..."
