NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 Video Card Review
     Sat, Jan 22 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 graphics card went to store shelves back in April 2010 it had an MSRP of $499 and while it was fast it was criticized for being too hot and power hungry. Here we are eight months later we see the GeForce GTX 480 becoming discontinued and eradicated by the GeForce GTX 570. The GeForce GTX 570 costs 30% less at $349.99 and offers an improved cooling solution and performance that is right around the same as the GeForce GTX 480. Obviously, the GeForce GTX 570 is the better video card as the price is lower, the card runs cooler and the performance is not significantly different. Compared to a GeForce GTX 470 the new GeForce GTX 570 blows that card out of the water as we saw a number of benchmarks where the GTX 570 was more than 30% faster. With a price point and performance at this level the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 should be able to do battle with the AMD Radeon HD 6950 and 6970 when those 'Cayman' GPUs are released by AMD next week..."

EVGA Geforce GTX 570 SuperClocked DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Sat, Jan 22 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This release includes the EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked. The EVGA Geforce GTX 570 Superclocked is going to eat up the market. The GTX 570 SC comes fully loaded with 1280MB of GDDR5. The EVGA factory overclock sets the core speeds to 797 MHz, memory to 3900 MHz(effective), and shader clock to 1594 MHz. There are 480 CUDA cores which matches the GTX 480."

AMD HD 6950 Video Card Review

Posted by: STAFF
"With the capability to flash to the 6970 BIOS, the HD 6950 packs a punch that makes it excellent value for $300. Even with the stock BIOS, this card competes with the best of them."

HIS Radeon HD 6970 2GB Video Card Overclocked
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 6:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We've just had a look at the HIS HD 6970 Turbo and I then realized that we hadn't even had a look at the reference HD 6970 2GB from HIS. It's not that we had forgotten about it, but we wanted to give the card the same treatment as the GIGABYTE HD 6950 2GB we have just looked at. Since we had looked at the HD 6970 by itself as well as in Crossfire, the next thing to do was see what happens when we overclock them. With the holidays it seemed that MSI were a little slower than normal when it came to updating Afterburner with voltage support, so unfortunately we're looking at the HIS HD 6970 in this regard a little later than we would normally."

Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 WHDI
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 6:53P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 WHDI graphics card is a truly unique offering that brings uncompressed wireless video your current configuration with an impressive set of features. Using this Galaxy card and the included receiver you can wirelessly connect your PC to an HDTV or even just a standard monitor in another room of your house and still get the same image quality (and sound quality) you would get with the two being directly connected via HDMI or DVI. While 3D gaming and 3D Blu-ray aren't supported yet, the quality of the WHDI technology impressed me while playing games at 1920x1080 and watching Blu-ray at the full 1080p resolution."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 is based on the same GF110 GPU architecture as the NVIDIA GTX 580. The GeForce GTX 570 comes with 480 CUDA cores, 60 texture units, 40 ROP units and 15 streaming multiprocessors. The GF110 architecture has been reengineered from the transistor level to increase power efficiency, lower heat output and also increase performance on the average of 25% over its predecessor the Geforce GTX 470. NVIDIA has also redesigned their heatsink and fan solution to ensure a quieter gaming experience. As an added bonus the core and memory clock speeds have also been increased when compared to the GTX 470."

Sparkle Nvidia Geforce GTX465 Video Card @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Jan 20 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you’re a gamer then you know the video card is probably the most important part of your system, without a decent one you won’t be able to play those games that you love so much. The problem with good video cards is that they cost a lot of money, and a lot of us can’t afford them so most of us aim a little lower towards the more mid-range priced cards. I think one should be able to get a fairly decent card that will play most games at relatively high settings and not have to take out a loan or get a second mortgage to do it. Today for review I’ve got the Sparkle GeForce GTX465 video card, it’s a fairly big card, but most cards are these days that can provide good performance for your system. The best part about this card I think is the price, for about $200 you can get a fairly decent performing card. "

AMD Radeon HD 6970 Review
     Thu, Jan 20 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Roughly this time last month we were testing a variety of graphics cards in the new Call of Duty: Black Ops video game. I remember picking up a Radeon HD 4870 and thinking to myself “wow I've had this thing forever”. The follow up to this card was Radeon HD 5870, which a solid success for AMD as it remained their flagship single-GPU product for roughly 15 months, and it is only being replaced today. After a short delay, AMD brings us the new Radeon HD 6970. Code-named Cayman XT this new graphics processor features 2640 million transistors, 23% more than that of the 5870. Like the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 and GTX 570 graphics cards which are more refined versions of the GTX 480 and GTX 470 graphics cards, the Radeon HD 6970 is essentially a more refined version of the 5870. To find out exactly what this means, read on...

The new AMD E-350 with Radeon HD 6310
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Let's tackle the issue of performance from a component stand point. The dual-core Bobcat processor in the Zacate APU from AMD is much faster than the dual-core HyperThreaded Atom D510 processors and is about on par with the performance of the Penryn-based dual-core Celeron SU2300 CULV part. Obviously the in-order architecture of the Atom CPU family is starting to show its age and I have to wonder if Intel doesn't have something else up their sleeve to compete with the obviously fundamentally better design of the Bobcat core."

AMD Graphics Radeon HD 6850 Review
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD made it clear to us that the 6800 series are a refresh of the 5800 series, and while they have made some performance tweaks and improvements (specifically in things like tessellation) there is no ground breaking performance update here, and the cards sit pretty much where their 5800 series counterpart did."

ASUS ENGTX460 Direct Cu (LostCircuits)
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The story around Fermi and by extension around nVidia has been one of the more interesting sagas of the last year, paralleling almost the Ring of the Nibelung in its epic proportions and featuring Jen-Hsun Huang as Siegfried the dragon slayer. Contrary to medieval traditions, though, Fermi was originally presented as a highly scalable and modular design in a top-to-bottom approach with the high end models being introduced first to set the expectations and create a demand for scaled back versions at a lower price. History further predicted the follow-up on the GF100 design to be a result of taking the Xacto knife and simply dividing the die into equal halves. At a very high level, the GF104, which is the subject of this article does seem to follow this rather simplistic model. However, it only takes a second look to see that there are a number of fundamental changes to the GF100 design that dramatically increase the cost/performance ratio, at least in theory. The theory in this case being that the GF100 is a somewhat unbalanced design with over-engineering in some areas and lack of resources in some others as we already mentioned in our review of the ASUS ENGTX 480. .... The only gripe we had with the ENGTX was the omission of the mini-HDMI to HDMI converter and that was primarily because we wanted to try triple displays, an oversight on our part since current nVidia cards only supply two displays anyway and one needs SLI in order to get the third display going. In that case, though, there is no need for HDMI since there are four DVI-I ports to chose from anyway. Which leaves the only other application, which includes a large screen HDTV. As mentioned, the adapter can be found on-line for some US$ 2.50 and it may be worthwhile just getting one for grins since eventually you’ll need it. On a short notice. Which, by definition means it is going to be costly. Overall, though, we were extremely happy with the ENGTC 460 Direct Cu which is still an excellent compromise between price and performance and we highly recommend it as the card that is the least expensive entry point to high-end gaming.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 SLI: Double Impact
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 7:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia GeForce 400 family that is slowly becoming history has never got a high-end dual-processor model. Maybe it is destined to be born in GeForce 500 family, and today we will try to find out what we could potentially expect from a hypothetical graphics accelerator with two GF110 onboard.
