HIS HD6870 IceQ X Turbo X
     Sun, Apr 10 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently reviewed the HIS HD6850 IceQ X Turbo X and found it to be an excellent overclocker with an impressive cooler. Today we are looking at a similar card, this time using the HD6870 GPU. HIS markets the HIS HD6870 IceQ X Turbo as 'The World's Fastest HD6870', a claim we need to test.

ASUS EAH6870 1GB Video Card
     Sun, Apr 10 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Radeon HD 6870, contrary to its somewhat confusing name, is not the successor to the Radeon 5870. Instead, it acts as an almost direct replacement for the Radeon 5850, both in terms of performance and in price. Today we are looking at the Asus variant which has some exclusive features including the Voltage Tweak functionality we have come to particularly enjoy when overclocking."

GIGABYTE HD6970 2GB Review
     Sat, Apr 09 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in December, AMD released their much awaited Cayman based HD69XX series of cards. It represented a transition to a revised architecture that was more catered towards compute performance with new features such as Morphological Anti-Aliasing and enhanced tessellation performance to meet the requirements of newer DX10/11 titles. For the most part, the HD6970 was a success despite its specifications appearing subtly different to the highly popular but ageing HD5870. Employing the VLIW4 architecture, AMD had managed to maintain improved performance over their previous generation of card without compromising on die size. We found the HD6970 to be an 18% improvement over the HD5870 on average despite sporting 1536 stream processors rather than the 1600 available on the Cypress HD5870 GPU. On the other hand, we were disappointed to see that for a next generation flagship graphics card (until we see the HD6990), the performance increase was still not enough to outcompete Nvidia's simultaneously released refreshed line-up..."

MSI Radeon HD 6970 2GB Lightning Overclocked Video Card Review
     Sat, Apr 09 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I always seem to start these reviews by stating that the series of the card we're looking at is one of my favorite. It's not just some generic introduction and I really am a large fan of series' like the IceQ from HIS, Vapor-X from Sapphire, SOC from GIGABYTE and most of all, the MSI series including the Cyclone, HAWK and Lightning which we're looking at today. While most companies have a good stand-out series, MSI have an arsenal of them. The Cyclone is great for these lower end mid-range cards; the cooler is quiet and performs very well. You can kick it up a notch and start looking at the Twin Frozr series which tends to be reserved for the higher end cards. It's also quiet, performs well and is essentially a higher end version of the Cyclone series."

MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II OC Video Card Review
     Sat, Apr 09 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II OC graphics card sports a black and silver color scheme and has a very aggressive look to the card. It almost looks like the GPU cooler could be used as a weapon, but this is the look that MSI was going for with this cooler design. The MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone OC peaked at 59C according to Furmark and that is amazing to say the least. The only other GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card that we reviewed has been the ASUS Ultimate GeForce GTX550 Ti and this card was significantly cooler than that. The ASUS Ultimate GTX550 Ti 1GB peaked at 76C, which means that the MSI card is 22% or 17C cooler at load..."

Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 Review: Dual-GPU Wars
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 4:26P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With AMD's Radeon HD 6990 stealing the performance crown only two short weeks ago, we knew it wouldn't be long before Nvidia answered the challenge. The company's GeForce GTX 590 was a poorly guarded secret, with specifications leaking as far back as last fall. Today marks the flagship's official launch and needless to say, we're excited to see how it stacks up to AMD's dual-GPU offering. The GeForce GTX 590 packs two GF110 graphics processors -- the same chip that powers the GTX 580, currently the fastest single-GPU graphics card available. Although the GTX 590's processors have the same core configuration as the GTX 580's, Nvidia had to reduce the graphics and memory clock frequencies to keep the card's thermal envelope within reasonable levels. Realizing that, we can already assume the GTX 590 isn't going to be as fast as two GTX 580s in SLI. However, two GTX 580s would cost at least $1,000, and since the GTX 590 needs to be relatively competitive with the Radeon HD 6990 in terms of pricing, we bet Nvidia doesn't want the GTX 590 to be as quick as SLIed GTX 580s anyway. Okay, that's enough speculation. Let's get this party started!

Diamond USB PC to TV HDMI Adapter
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of the main features being advertised with the Diamond USB PC to TV HDMI Adapter is giving your Netbook or Macbook the ability to connect to your Flat Screen TV via an HDMI cable. Well, the Netbook that I had is an ASUS Eee PC 1000HA which only comes with an analog display output for an external monitor. That is all fine and dandy if you are not planning on hooking it up to your TV, however if you wanted a quick and simple way to watch a video that is streaming over the internet, such as YouTube or Hulu, you are not going to be able to do that from the ASUS Eee PC 1000HA. That is where the Diamond adapter comes in. I will install the software on my Netbook and see how well it is able to connect to my setup in my living room. This did work perfectly, as I was able to install the software on the Eee PC and connect it to my Philips 42" Plasma TV in my living room and was able to watch a YouTube video from the Overclockersclub.com"

PowerColor HD 6950 PCS++ Review
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Despite its name, the PowerColor HD 6950 PCS++ is not an average reference card. This GPU is built on a custom PCB and includes a different cooling solution. Out of the box, this card is unlocked from 1408 to 1536 shaders, like the HD 6970. Plus, it comes standard with a beefy 80 MHz overclock. Let’s see how it stacks up against the competition."

HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo 1 GB
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HIS has designed a new cooler called IceQ X. It comes with a light blue transparent plastic shell that conveys an "ice block" feeling. In our testing we saw low idle and load temperatures, evidence that the cooler does a good job. The card also comes with increased clock speeds out of the box to gain some extra advantage over the reference design.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 4GB Video Card in AUSUM Mode
     Tue, Apr 05 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You might've heard us mention this new "AUSUM" mode a bit in our recent Sapphire HD 6990 4GB. If you missed out reading our Sapphire HD 6990 Technical Preview, I'd highly recommend you check it out to see exactly what it does, even if you just jump to page 3 which covers "AUSUM" mode and the Dual BIOS switch. Due to the fact we've already covered the Sapphire HD 6990 in quite a lot of detail, we'll just be getting straight into the specifications of the card when we flick that Dual BIOS switch to AUSUM mode. If you can't be bothered reading the Technical Preview and you don't know exactly what AUSUM mode does, we'll quickly just cover how you switch it on and the clocks it carries when on along with any other features it brings. So with that all said and done, let's check out the GPU-Z information and exactly what we're dealing with."
