ASUS EAH 6970 2GByte Review
     Tue, Feb 22 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the EAH 6970, ASUS presents its first AMD Radeon HD 6970 based graphics card which has been equipped with 2 GByte GDDR5 memory. The successor of the very successful Radeon HD 5870 lets us hope for another superb graphics card with excellent performance not only because of higher clock speeds. AMD also did architectural changes which should have a significant impact.

ASUS GeForce GTX 580 Direct CU II
     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS' new GeForce GTX 580 DC2 uses a massive triple slot Direct CU II heatsink that increases cooling performance significantly. As a result the card is extremely quiet in both idle and load - quieter than many midrange cards. ASUS has also increased the operating clocks of their design, all this for a small price increase of $5.

Gigabyte GTX460 Super Overclock Review
     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Gigabyte GTX 460 SOC (Super Overclock) we have a graphics card in our testlab which doesn't belong to the latest models but it still is quite an interesting product. The fact that this card comes with a highly efficient cooler and a huge overclocking potential makes it particularly interesting.

EVGA Geforce GTX 560Ti SuperClocked DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The EVGA Geforce GTX 560Ti SuperClocked Edition looks to fill that new upgrade spot. The GTX 560Ti SC is positioned to fill that middle performance spot that was once held by the popular GTX 460. The SuperClocked branding from EVGA means that this GTX 560Ti comes factory overclocked. The core clock speed is set at 900Mhz, memory at 4212Mhz, and shader clock is1800Mhz. The technology in the 560Ti adds more on top of the old 460 in terms of processing power. There are 384 CUDA cores, 8 streaming multiprocessors, 64 texture units, and 32 ROP units. The EVGA Geforce GTX 560Ti SC retains all of the newest features like DirectX 11, CUDA, PhysX, PureVideo HD, 3D Vision, and OpenGL technology."

AMD Radeon HD6870 Review @ XtremeComputing
     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you’re remotely interested in computers, you’ll know who AMD are. It’s no surprise when you consider they’ve been around since 1969(!), so they need no introduction. Odds are that you’ll also be familiar with the Radeon brand of graphics cards, so today’s review product and company should be known to everyone."

Radeon HD 6950 1GB vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the GeForce GTX 560 Ti was released shortly ago, one things was clear - the price versus performance ratio would be great. Especially with the extensive factory overclocked models in mind these cards perform really well. So a couple of weeks ago AMD decided to sort of 'Ambush' NVIDIA, by releasing a 1 GB version of the Radeon HD 6950, a product with the very same features and specifications as it's big brother the 2 GB version has yet priced way below we all expected it to be.

MSI Radeon HD 6870 1GB HAWK Overclocked Video Card Review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The HAWK series is one of my favorite, and that's mainly because it sits towards the top of the chart when it comes to what you can do with a card. At the bottom of the stack you've got your reference card. From there we introduce an overclock and over that you can start to look at custom cooling. Once you get out of that area, you're into cards like the HAWK and Lightning which utilize custom PCBs. That introduces the ability to gain an even higher overclock than other models, and when combined with MSIs own overclocking software, Afterburner, we can really reach for the skies. Unlike the Lightning series, though, the HAWK series name is more aimed around the midrange market with one of our most recent favorites being the GTX 470 HAWK. With the release of the GTX 560 Ti, though, a lot of pressure has been applied to the mid-range AMD models and today we intend to find out what the HD 6870 HAWK can bring to the party. Before we look at the performance, though, we'll quickly look at the package and then the card itself. Once that's done we'll look at the default specifications along with what we overclocked the card to. After that the fun stuff begins and we pit the model up against a number of others to see what kind of performance we're able to achieve."

XFX 6870 Black Edition (Dual Fan) vs Inno3D GTX 560 Ti OC vs GTX 570 OC vs Radeo
     Sat, Feb 19 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Over the past day we have taken a look in detail at NVIDIAs new GTX 560 TI. Aspects which have been covered include single card performance, SLI, stereoscopic 3D, Blu-Ray playback, GPU computing and PhysX amongst other things. As always though we like to end our launch coverage with a look in more detail at overclocked performance..."

Mobile GPU Battle, Radeon vs GeForce w/ Eurocom
     Fri, Feb 18 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We took a pair of Radeon HD 6970M graphics cards and put them up against a pair of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 470Ms for some head-to-head benchmarks. Since we'll be working with mobile cards, we'll need a suitable mobile platform to run the tests on. Our benchmark platform is the Eurocom Panther 2.0. This is a very large and very powerful desktop replacement (DTR) based on the Clevo X7200 whitebook...

AXLE GeForce GT 430 1GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Feb 18 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I was impressed by the AXLE GeForce GT 430 video card, mainly by its cooling ability. Our review of the ASUS ENGT430 GeForce GT 430 video card showed the load temperature reaching up to 73C on that card, while the AXLE GeForce GT 430 barely broke a sweat at 41C. Overclock it a little bit and it still stays around 45C. It is geared more toward Home Theatre PCs, but it can be a decent card for gaming...as long as it is low resolution and you can sacrifice some of the eye candy...."

Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic
     Fri, Feb 18 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic, clocked at 900 MHz, has been finely tuned to provide an ultimate gaming experience, while conserving the high performance/watt efficiency demonstrated in all GTX 560 Ti cards. Palit incorporated a dual 80mm fan design, and shrunk down the PCB by a few inches. This compact design makes the Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic an ideal contender for any mid tower case, as well as lowering the overall voltage required to power the card. Currently, the Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic is priced at 259.99 USD, while the reference Palit GTX 560 Ti is priced at 249.99 USD. The low market price of GTX 560 Ti is yet another quality making this card a serious contender in the market.

MSI HD 6850 Cyclone Power Edition
     Fri, Feb 18 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Brief: MSI's HD 6850 Cyclone Power Edition comes at 860 MHz, which is the largest overclock out of the box of any HD 6850 available. The card also features a little switch to enable a silent BIOS which reduces fan noise considerably and makes the card a virtually noiseless experience to use, in both idle and 3D.

ASUS GeForce GTX 570 Direct CU II
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 6:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS is expanding their triple-slot cooler graphics card lineup. Their GeForce GTX 570 Direct CU II offers amazingly low noise levels as well as low operating temperatures in both idle and 3D. ASUS has also increased to clock speeds out of the box, even though the icnrease is only minimal. But with a price increase of just $10 there is not much to complain about.

HIS HD 6970 graphics card
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Each generation of graphics cards is made up of the kind of GPUs that most people buy, the mid-range and they have the budget ones which quite a lot of others buy. Then you have the monsters, dual chip and single. Today we look at the latter one from HIS, the HD 6970. A giant card with expected impressive performance; though you know this is going to pull a lot of power. Let's see how much. "

Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:55P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Featuring a shorter PCB design, custom heatsink, and a strong factory overclock, this Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic 1GB graphics card appears to have its sights set high. At a price of about $250, the Sonic doesn't cost much more than the reference Nvidia card, but it comes with much better features. So let's jump in and take a closer look at the Palit GTX 560 Ti Sonic and find out just how fast it is.”

Gainward GeForce GTX 570 1280MB Phantom Video Card Review
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We haven't seen a lot of the GTX 570 since it was launched. Apart from the reference card we saw from MSI and the original overclocked one from Gainward, there hasn't been much else to look at. Today, though, we're looking at another one, albeit from Gainward again. This one's a little more interesting, though, as it carries with it a new series name. We're not too sure what to expect from the new Phantom series, but this is our first take at it; although we've seen that Gainward have also launched a GTX 560 Ti under the same series. So the question is, what does the "Phantom" series bring to the table and is it something we should be interested in? Are we going to want to look at more cards from the Phantom series or would we prefer to stick to our ole' faithful ones like the Goes Like Hell Editions which have been a bit of a personal favorite for a while now."
