XFX HD 6970 Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"XFX's reference based version HD 6970 performs exactly like any other reference version at the time of release. Although there was a lot of high expectations for this card, in the end it can be summed up as a mixed bag of good and under-whelming."

Posted by: STAFF
“Diamond is a company known for typically pushing overclocked graphics cards, and today's variant is no exception. The Diamond Radeon 68970 XOC is essentially a reference design but it boasts a strong factory overclock and great gaming horsepower at a decent price. Let's take a closer look at the Diamond Radeon 6870 XOC and see what it can do.”

“Promising improved performance and lower temperatures, the GTX 580 looks to be impressive on paper. But real gaming tests are where reputations are made or broken. So let's jump in and take a closer look at the PNY GTX 580 XLR8 and find out if it's the fastest horse in the stable.”

"NVIDIA has recently released its fastest GPU to date, the GeForce GTX 580. Let's see how it compares to what was until then the fastest NVIDIA GPU, the GeForce GTX 480, and its competitors from AMD."

Sparkle GeForce GTS 450
     Sat, Jan 01 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Sparkle GeForce GTS 450 1GB features a custom heatsink that runs cool and quiet, and has some serious overclocking headroom under the hood. For gamers on a budget, that's a very compelling combination. And for gamers with high-end SLI systems, it's a slam dunk card for dedicated PhysX.”

Sapphire HD 6850 1GB GPU
     Sat, Jan 01 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With each new generation of GPUs comes a slew of reviews as writers and analysts around the world scramble to see what those few extra frames per second will look like; god damn we're nerds arn't we? Still, here we are once again taking a peak at the latest offerings from AMD, the 6 series. Due to a naming convention change ala nVidia, AMD have chosen to name this card the 6850, despite it really having 67xx performance; or at least that's what we're expecting. While this is a bit of a pain, in reality we know better. This is the new generation of 57xx cards, so what better to compare it to than it's last generation counterpart? "

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?

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.
