Galaxy GeForce GTX 480 Super OC 1536MB Video Card
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I'm sure that I'm not the only person who has been waiting for a card like this to come. The GTX 480, a lot like the GTX 470, wasn't plagued with poor performance when it came to pumping out the FPS, but it didn't do well when we looked at the noise of the card and the temperature it was running at. Finally the GTX 480 gets its time. Galaxy has not only slapped on the Super OC tag which we're beginning to love, but they've also strapped on a super cooler which no doubt will look familiar for some. Before we get into all that, though, let's check out the package we've got."

Wicked Lasers S3 Arctic Spyder III 1 Watt Blue Laser
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Everyone has a cool laser memory. If you are my age the most common is from the 1985 movie starring Val Kilmer titled Real Genius. One movie that has always stuck out in my mind was the 1997 film, Air Force One, where a marine uses a small hand held laser to melt the plastic covering to expose a wire. If you deal with electronics for a living, how handy would a tool like that be? Whether you want to admit it or not, chances are you have an attraction to lasers. Wicked Lasers, long known for their ultra-powerful, compact and expensive lasers made mainstream news a few weeks ago by advertising the world’s most powerful hand held laser. As if making a 1 watt laser wasn’t enough to grab headlines, the media coverage soon turned into a frenzy when George Lucas thought the new Wicked Lasers S3 Arctic looked a little too much like the famous Light Sabers from Star Wars."

GIGABYTE GeForce GTS 450 OC 1GB Video Card
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For some the $200+ price tag associated with the GTX 460 continues to be too much and the new GTS 450 we’ve looked at over the past month seems to be doing a good job of filling that low $100 bracket that users on a budget no doubt appreciate. The latest version of the card comes from GIGABYTE and carries with it the two things we love most; an overclock and a fancy new cooler. What’s missing on this particular one is a retail package, though, so instead of looking at that we’ll get stuck straight into the actual card and then have a closer look at its specifications and the overclock that’s on offer."

ECS GeForce GTS 450 1GB Black Video Card
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since we’ve looked at a few GTS 450s already, I figured we’d look at this one a little differently. What we saw from the Black version of the GTX 460 was one of the higher clock speeds when it came to overclocking. We’ve got our fingers crossed the same kind of clock speeds will be achieved on the GTS 450. So while we won’t be testing the standard clock speeds today, we will be testing the overclocked ones we can achieve. While normally in an OC article we would avoid the package and card, because we haven’t actually looked at the ECS GTS 450 Black yet, we’ll be including that information today. So let’s get into the package and card before we have a look at what clocks ECS offer us out of the box, but more importantly what we’re able to achieve ourselves."

Palit GeForce GTS 450 Low Profile 1GB Video Card
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For the most part I had thought we would’ve probably reached the end of the GTS 450 lookovers. We’ve looked at a number of versions of the model and a number of different speeds. We’ve seen it overclocked and in SLI, but when I saw the press release for the one we’re looking at today, I just had to check it out. Palit don’t sample a lot of models. They tend to just send over the highly overclocked custom models like the Platinum Sonic we’ve already looked at. And while the one we’re looking at carries with it the default clocks, something we actually haven’t seen yet, its ace up its sleeve, is the fact that it’s a half height card."

NVIDIA's Best Buy GeForce GTX 460 1GB Video Card Overview
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We got word late yesterday by a friend at NVIDIA that Best Buy had slipped up and released NVIDIA branded graphics cards on Sunday night. This was a week before they were supposed to hit store shelves as NVIDIA hasn't even released the PR stating that the company has joined forces with Best Buy and that Best Buy is now directly selling NVIDIA Branded video cards directly to consumers. This is the first time that we have seen NVIDIA branded video cards being sold direct and we went to a few Best Buy stores in St. Louis today and sure enough, we spotted the cards sitting on store shelves. We couldn't leave the store empty handed, so we bought the card for $299.99 and headed back to see what it was all about..."

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 SLI Video Card Review w/ ASUS, EVGA & MSI
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS ENGTS450 TOP, MSI N450GTS Cyclone 1GD5 and the EVGA GeForce GTS 450 FTW were all excellent video card. The GeForce GTS 450 is a fun video card to overclock as all five of our samples made it from 783MHz to at least 950MHz on the core and that was without any voltage adjustments. By just using an overclocking utility like EVGA Precision we were able to bump up the clocks effortlessly. We like to see overclocks like this as it makes owning a budget card fun and gives you the ability to get a little extra performance out of it..."

ECS GeForce GTX 460 1GB Black Video Card Review
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ECS GeForce GTX 460 1GB Black video card is a fun little card with the solid price/performance ratio from the GTX 460 series cards with an ultra efficient heatsink and a hefty factory overclock. When overclocked up to a 900 MHz core speed the GTX 460 1GB begins to close in on the performance of a GTX 470 (the factory overclock itself puts it above the GTX 465) and well above cards from the Radeon side of the fence for a lower price. The heatsink uses 92mm fans (with unrestrictive aluminum fins and a plastic shroud) which are dead silent at an idle state and not audible over even just the pump from the Corsair H50..."

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 SLI versus ATI Radeon HD 5770 CrossFire
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Did you know that NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 and ATI Radeon HD 5770 video cards are nearly identical in price? They are also rather inexpensive and you can get a nice NVIDIA SLI or ATI CrossFire setup with these cards for $260-$280 before rebates. The question we look at today is which setup performs better and which one scales better?

ASUS ENGT430 GeForce GT 430 1GB DDR3 Video Card Review
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After testing the ASUS ENGT430 video card we found ourselves being impressed by the little card. For only $79 we got some impressive features and were shocked that the power consumption levels were so good. We were worried that the GF100 series core on the card would eat up some power, but was shocked seeing this card with the GF108 core and 1GB of DDR3 memory was using less power than an ATI Radeon HD 5570 with 512GB of GDDR5 memory..."

Sapphire Radeon HD 5550 512MB GDDR5 OC Video Card
     Sun, Aug 29 2010 | 2:06A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Another HD 5550 utilizing GDDR5 memory has arrived and we'll be honest when we say it'll probably be one of the last unless someone does something that stands out with the model. We tend to only have a look at one or two of these low end models because we tend to find companies don't mix it up too much. Sapphire today have not only slapped a half decent cooler on the card, but also taken the time to overclock it. I didn't actually look at the specifications before checking out GPU-Z and I wondered if the OC was going to be the 20MHz or so we saw from GIGABYTE on the HD 5670 recently, or if it was going to be more. And if it was more, what would it actually do for performance? So often we find these low end cards with an overclock to be quite pointless. Let's find out what Sapphire has done, though, and what it means for you."

XFX HD-577X-ZMF3: Radeon HD 5770 in single slot design

Posted by: STAFF
Since AMD launched the Radeon HD 5770 graphics cards, a dual slot cooling system was the usual way OEMs equipped their products. Less than a year later, XFX goes a different way and reduces the size to a single slot.

Initial rumors had the RV790 pegged as a speed optimized RV770
     Fri, Mar 27 2009 | 4:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
: "I do not think we will see a massive increase in stream units as we saw going from the RV670 to the RV770. I think we will see an increase to 960 stream units (divided into 12 SIMDs), but the amount of RBEs will likely be unchanged (though AMD would include another texture unit per SIMD, adding another RBE would sort of upset the orthoganality of the setup). Considering the current texturing and AA performance of the HD 4870, those changes are likely not needed in the new chip. Performance increases in pure pixel fillrate and texturing will be improved from the clockspeed increases as well as further internal optimizations into these units."

Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 512MB Low Profile Video Card Review
     Thu, Nov 27 2008 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It stands to reason that there is a very limited number of video cards that will fit in the MicroATX Slim case. Our friends at Sapphire have added an additional selection, with the new Radeon HD 4550. This card has a very small footprint, and comes with both a standard expansion bracket and a low profile bracket, sports 512 megs of DDR3 memory, and has active cooling to boot. All for a price too low to believe. Read on to find out about this cute little video card!"

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.
