Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 4GB Technical Run Down
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We've got all our slide decks from AMD and some images from Sapphire. We'll tell you all the stuff we normally would in a video card review outside of the performance of course. Because there's so much to cover as well, it means we can get the performance article to you even faster while making sure we can cover as much information about the new dual GPU beast from AMD. Looking at the package, there's nothing really all that different to what we've seen before. Of course, the brand and model are very noticeable; so is the fact that Sapphire has chosen to let us know that it's a "Dual GPU Graphics Card". Also on the front we can see a lot of the features like 4GB of GDDR5, DirectX 11, AMD HD3D, Display Port, High Speed HDMI, 7.1 HD Surround Sound and more. We can also see the new "Vision" labeling that AMD is going to start to push. The HD 6990 4GB falls within the "Black Vision" series which seems to be at the top of the tree."

AMD Radeon HD 6990 Dual-GPU Graphics Card Review
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been a long while since we've last seen a $700 graphics card, but AMD revives that tradition with its Radeon HD 6990 dual-GPU offering. Fortunately, the card has proven that its high price-tag is well-earned, as it storms past every other single and dual-GPU graphics card on the market, and introduces other useful features to boot.

EVGA GeForce GTX 550Ti FPB Edition DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The EVGA GTX 550 Ti FPB video card is a major improvement over the GTS 450. The EVGA GTX 550 Ti is factory overclocked at 951 MHz (Core) from the default 900 MHz. The memory clocks are also bumped up on the EVGA GTX 550 Ti FPB to 4356 MHz from the standard 3600 MHz. Like all EVGA video cards, the GTX 550 Ti FPB video card comes bundled with EVGA’s Precision and OC Scanner software. EVGA offers a 3 year warranty on the GTX 550 Ti, which covers parts and labor and can be extended when the video card is registered on EVGA’s website within 30 days of purchase."

Zotac Geforce GTX 570 Review
     Wed, Mar 23 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Zotac's Geforce GTX 570 does prove that is a direct competitor with any reference based HD 6970 at this given time. Through benchmarking and testing, both videocards won and lost during certain benchmarks and in the end, I can't and will not say one is better than the other. Regardless, Zotac's reference based version of the GTX 570 proved to be a great videocard and proved to work flawlessly right out of the box. The only hindrance would have to be the reference cooler which doesn't seem to be up to the task if you would like to overclock AND keeps things quiet and cool."

AMD Radeon HD 6990 Review: Sumptuous Dual-GPU Power
     Wed, Mar 23 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD introduced its first Radeon HD 6000 graphics card last October, when we reviewed the mid-range Radeon HD 6870. Since then AMD opened up to show its GPU roadmap and the cards that soon thereafter were coming to market. The high-end Radeon HD 6970 and HD 6950 also arrived late last year, while the dual-GPU version of AMD's last generation graphics series code-named Antilles was expected to arrive shortly after. Coincidentally (or not) both AMD and Nvidia took a few months longer than expected to show its hardcore dual-GPU graphics cards, with the former making the first move to finally unveil the Radeon HD 6990.

AMD's own Radeon HD 5970
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 5:27P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I am glad to see AMD really embracing the overclocking mindset in both its CPU and GPU divisions as well. AMD has been offering unlocked processors for quite some time and with previous Radeon releases and now the new HD 6990 offering, the engineering and marketing teams continue to strive to beat out the competition in anyway they can. By installing a switch on the card that now basically overclocks the clock speeds and moves the power consumption beyond approved levels, AMD is enabling consumers that WANT to push their hardware the option to do so, and for that, we at PC Perspective are very grateful."

ASUS GTX 570 DirectCU II Review
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 5:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With its GTX 570 Direcet CU II, ASUS shows a factory overclocked version of the NVIDIAs GTX 570 GPU. Additionally this card got an overworked power design as well as ASUS huge triple slot cooler. This should therefore be both more powerful and more silent.

PNY GTX 560 Ti OC2
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 2:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The PNY GTX 560 Ti OC2 is one card that certainly looks to pushing the performance envelope since this particular model comes with a strong factory overclock out of the box. It's got a competitive price of $250, but can it compete against AMD's Radeon lineup? Let's jump in and find out.”

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 550 Ti AMP! Edition
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink

It is also the only card that features a full size HDMI output and a full size DisplayPort output in addition to two dual-link DVI ports which make the AMP! Edition the connectivity champ.

Sapphire Radeon 6870 FleX Edition
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“What's so special about the Sapphire Radeon 6870 FleX Edition graphics card? Well, it supports Eyefinity out of the box with no need for expensive DisplayPort or adapters. That capability is built directly into the card itself, independent of the monitors being used. This means that any monitors with DVI ports can now run Eyefinity; no expensive DisplayPort is necessary. Sapphire may have one very special card for consumers here. Let's dive in and take a close look at the 6870 FleX and see if it indeed is a game-changer.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 CrossFire Review
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier on today we took a look at AMD's latest and greatest graphics card, the Radeon 6990. In that article we looked at a number of performance aspects and various features the card offered but one item was missing, CrossFire performance as we were yet to receive a second card. That changes now though as we have one of the first retail branded 6990s in our test system and have combined it with the reference model to look at performance when gaming on one and three screens. This includes Dragon Age 2, Crysis 2 and of course the customary run through 3DMark 2011."

AMD Radeon HD 6990 Graphics Card Review

Posted by: STAFF
"The Radeon 6990 has just launched and today we will be putting it up against the GTX 580 and 570 (with SLI) as well as the 5970 to find out how the new card from AMD compares. As well as the standard 1920x1080 tests we will also cover 5760x1080 on all products, 3D Blu-Ray, GPU computing, power, noise, temps and overclocking."

MSI GeForce GTX 550 Ti Cyclone II 1 GB
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's new factory overclocked GeForce GTX 550 Ti Cyclone II uses an improved version of MSI's Cyclone cooler which increases air flow without increasing noise. As a result the card's temperatures never exceed 60°C - no matter what you throw at it.

Gigabyte GTX 550 Ti
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“One of the interesting things about the launch of the GTX 550 Ti is there will be several models available from Nvidia partners simultaneously, and this one is from Gigabyte. Bringing a custom cooler and a factory overclock, today is quite exciting if you're in the market for a new graphics card that won't break the bank.”

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.
