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."

GPU boasts of more performance
     Sat, Feb 05 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The codename “Cayman” represents the 6900 series of cards from AMD. The refined GPU boasts of more performance per mm², new and improved image quality features, enhanced multimedia acceleration and next-generation display technology with HDMI 1.4a and DisplayPort 1.2. It should also be pointed out that with the new 6 series launch, there is a new naming strategy from AMD. The 6900 series are now considered the high-performance cards and the 6800 series have now taken on the roll of being the budget conscious gamer’s cards. Essentially the new 6900 line would be the direct successor to the 5800 line of cards in the performance market segment. Now, with that brief introduction out of the way, let us continue on to the review.

MSI GeForce GTX 580 1536 MB in SLI Overclocked
     Fri, Feb 04 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA jumped to the top of our TPR graphs when we posted our GTX 580 in SLI article. It wasn't a surprise, as in single form the GTX 580 1536MB is faster than the HD 6970 2GB. Scaling for NVIDIA has always been strong and while I think AMD have pretty much caught up with both companies offering nearly 100% gains in some areas, NVIDIA still has the raw power of the GTX 580 on their side. We came to two conclusions really when we tested the GTX 580 in SLI. It's DAMN FAST! - And it's going to play pretty much anything you throw at it at, any resolution, at any level of detail."

PowerColor PCS+ HD6870 1GB GDDR5
     Tue, Feb 01 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the HD6950 and HD6970, it is easy to forget the mid-range GPUs that AMD released earlier in October 2010: the HD6850 and the HD6870. However, most buyers don't want the fastest or the best, so these two GPUs target a very lucrative sector of the market where a good price versus performance ratio is important. Today we are taking a look at the PowerColor PCS+ HD6870 1GB GDDR5 (CALL OF DUTY EDITION). Behind this rather long name is a factory overclocked HD6870 GPU with a custom cooler that not only claims it can cool the card 15% better than a stock cooler, but also stay quiet doing it. The version we are reviewing also comes with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti - Titanium is Back
     Mon, Jan 31 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After being hidden for the past eight years, NVIDIA has brought back the "Ti" name for its GeForce GTX 560 Ti. The GeForce4 Ti 4200, introduced in 2002, was a card that offered both great pricing and superb performance. NVIDIA looks to recreate the same sort of excitement with its GTX 560 Ti, but has it succeeded?

PowerColor Radeon HD 6950 PCS++ Graphics Card Review
     Sun, Jan 30 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of the more impressive looking enhanced 6950s is the PowerColor PCS++ model and today we have one of those on our test bench. With an enhanced cooler and significantly increased specifications over the standard 6950 we will be putting it up against the GTX 570 and Radeon 6970 to see if it can compete with those, more expensive models."

Gainward GeForce GTX 560 Ti Golden Sample Video Card
     Sun, Jan 30 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another GTX 560 Ti arrives and in this case it's from Gainward. Like the other two we've looked at, it carries with it the two things we love; an overclock and a new cooler. This also won't be the last GTX 560 Ti we look at, because like the GTX 460 when it was released, companies are hitting the model hard and fast. It's actually been a while since we've had a look at a Golden Sample model from Gainward, as over the recent months the "Goes Like Hell" editions have been showing up a lot, so it will be nice to have a look at the much loved Golden Sample series which has been around for as long as we can remember."

AMD Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 Overclocked Round-up
     Sun, Jan 30 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As enthusiasts, one of the things we can always count on is the never-ending progression of computer hardware. Year after year, video cards get faster, processors offer more cores and / or performance, and motherboards provide additional features. That top of the line, $500 GPU you bought a few years ago can't touch the performance of a $200 graphics card available today. Yes, it's tough to keep up with the rapid pace of technology. But by shopping smarter, you minimize the chance of feeling buyer's remorse a few months down the road. These factory overclocked Radeon HD 6800 series graphics cards from PowerColor and HIS have made their way into our testing lab, and it's time once again for another round up...

GeForce GTX 480 and current NVIDIA flagship
     Sun, Jan 30 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At $349 USD dollars, the GTX 570 is designed to offer gamers a more affordable option than that of the GTX 580, yet maintaining a very high level of performance while using maximum settings across even the highest resolutions. According to NVIDIA, the GTX 570 boasts a 25% increase in performance compared to the GTX 470, and better performance than anything AMD currently has on the market."

ASUS Radeon 6870 DirectCU
     Sun, Jan 30 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“ASUS is a company known for non-reference graphics card designs, and today's variant is no exception. What's unique about this 6870 DirectCU is that not only does it have a custom cooler, but it comes a factory overclock and voltage tweaking capability to push very high clocks as well, promising some great gaming horsepower with respectable temperatures and power consumption.”

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1.25GB graphics card
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GeForce GTX 570 doesn't bring anything really new to the table in terms of graphics technology but it does bring performance that was once only available to $430+ options to a new, lower price point of $349. The GTX 570 also runs cooler and quieter than the GTX 480 giving NVIDIA yet another reason to go ahead with this upgrade. If nothing else, NVIDIA's latest iteration in their DX11 series of GPUs continues to pin AMD against the wall and gamers looking for an upgrade in this price range will be pleased with the results. "

MSI GeForce GTX 570 1280MB Video Card
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You might wonder why we'd bother looking at the reference GTX 570 when we've already had a look at an option from Gainward which carried with it both an overclock and a new cooler. Well, the reason is simple - While the Gainward card is good, it doesn't offer the truest form of GTX 570, as it's got a bigger cooler, an overclock and a higher price tag. What it ends up doing is skewing everything for us and it makes it a little difficult to tell you exactly how one model compares directly against it. So with the MSI reference design on offer, which is still the most popular design a month and a bit on since launch, we'll see how exactly the GTX 570 sits in our TPR and TVR graphs, while also seeing how it compares to other reference card offerings from AMD and NVIDIA."

Nvidia Researching Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing @ NGOHQ.com
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 2:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing (SRAA) combines single-pixel (1x) shading with subpixel visibility to create antialiased images without increasing the shading cost. SRAA targets deferred-shading renderers, which cannot use multisample antialiasing. SRAA operates as a post-process on a rendered image with superresolution depth and normal buffers, so it can be incorporated into an existing renderer without modifying the shaders."
