"There were only two cons that I found overall. The backplate is flush with the PCB on the sides and as such doesn't allow some PCI Express slot latching mechanisms to engage fully and that causes the card to not sit properly in the slot. Secondly, the ability to change the voltage is there but currently does not work and is advertised as a feature. Hopefully soon, such voltage adjustments will be allowed."

HD 6950 is touted to be in a class of its own

"After an unexpected delay (and plenty of rumors that soon followed), AMD's Radeon HD 6970 and Radeon HD 6950 finally see the light of day. The Cayman GPU brings a new VLIW4 core design that enables better efficiency and improved tessellation performance among others. AMD has positioned the HD 6970 as the superior enthusiast GPU, while the HD 6950 is touted to be in a class of its own. But still, the burning question: can the AMD Radeon HD 6970 subdue NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 580?"

Radeons codenamed “Cayman” have been followed by various misinformation since the day they were first heard of. Among these, the most prominent were the number of stream processors, memory quantity and the release date. Some of the information was true, though, such as the fact that they were to appear in the fourth quarter of this year. The initially announced release date was 22nd November, but AMD turned out to have been too optimistic in the meantime. Launch plans have obviously been changed several times, finally settling down to 15th December. More dates were brought up during those three weeks, but only the last one was made official by AMD. Of course, creating a media buzz is the first thing that people will do in situations like this, so several theories as to why the release date was pushed back were created, ranging from inadequate performance, over a lack of components for assembly and a raw final product, to a low yield. In order to keep the media stable, AMD announced their official stance on Cayman's postponement – allegedly, HD 5970 and its newly formed lower price was selling and beating competitors so well that any sort of rush would be completely unnecessary...

As NVIDIA released their refreshed GTX 500-series AMD took what could only be called an observer's position, biding their time until their own response was ready. Today we find out exactly what they have been working on since before the HD 5800 cards were released more than a year ago. The HD 6970 and HD 6950 have finally arrived, bringing with them improvements aplenty but will it be enough to dethrone NVIDIA?

Lenovo ThinkPad T410s with NVIDIA Optimus Review
     Sun, Jan 16 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo recently celebrated the milestone of selling 60 million ThinkPad notebooks. That's a ThinkPad for every person in the United Kingdom, to put it in perspective. Moreover, the PC maker claims these things sell like electronic hotcakes, to the tune of 14 per minute. Lenovo doesn't reach these types of numbers by selling outdated hardware spruced up with brushed aluminum, and clever marketing. The company targets tech-savvy business consumers and home users who want light, durable notebooks that offer cutting edge technology. The notebook we're reviewing today is an improvement over the original T410 we took a look at earlier this year. This latest iteration offers consumers a feature that gives it an important advantage over the majority of other laptops on the market. The ThinkPad T410s is the first model from Lenovo to offer NVIDIA Optimus technology, which provides users with seamless switching between discrete GPU performance and the power saving benefits associated with integrated graphics...

AMD Radeon HD 6970 & 6950 Graphics Debut

As many of you may be aware, Cayman is the codename given to AMD’s newest flagship GPU, which will power the Radeon HD 6900 series (Antilles, aka the Radeon HD 6990, will uses a pair of Cayman GPUs when it arrives sometime next year). Cayman is the successor to AMD's Cypress XT core that was employed in the Radeon HD 5800 series, and while it does leverage many of the technologies from that generation, Cayman is a new chip that embraces a fresh core architecture designed to increase efficiency, performance and feature-set. Initially, the Cayman GPU will power two graphics cards, the Radeon HD 6970 and the Radeon HD 6950. And wouldn’t you know it; we have a pair of each in house and have been testing them with a completely revamped test-bed for a few days now...

Overclocked GeForce GTX 480 Shoot-Out: MSI vs. Gigabyte
     Fri, Jan 14 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A funny thing happened during the course of this article—life got in the way. And in the few weeks that things were delayed, the PC graphics landscape changed dramatically. A couple of weeks before NVIDIA unleashed the GeForce GTX 580 onto the world, MSI and Gigabyte readied a pair of the most innovative GeForce GTX 480 cards to hit the market. Not only were the cards factory overclocked, but they featured custom coolers, re-worked PCBs, and hardcore, enthusiast-class features not found on any other GTX 480. MSI and Gigabyte sent us these custom GTX 480s, and just before putting the finishing touches on the piece, my wife went into labor, the GeForce GTX 580 hit, a few other launches needed coverage (including the just released GTX 570), and badabing badaboom, here we are today.

Not too long ago NVIDIA introduced the GeForce GTX 480, and shortly after the feature reduced GTX 470. Just a few months later, the top model was replaced by the GTX 580. Before the year 2010 is even over, NVIDIA takes the downsizing step as well in the 500 series: The GeForce GTX 570 is based on a feature reduced GTX 580 chip. HT4U.net presents, if price-performance is appealing.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB DDR5 DX11 Video Card Review

Posted by: STAFF
"One present could possibly be the Sapphire Radeon HD 6950. The Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 comes with an amazing 2GB of GDDR5 memory. More then enough memory to plow through any new DX11 title. The HD 6950 has 2 DVI, 2 mini Display Port, and a single HDMI 1.4a slot. Using the mini Display Ports, this card can support up to 6 monitors at once. There is also advanced technology with the HD 6950 including dual graphics engines, 22 SIMD engines, and 88 texture units. This increase far surpasses the 6800 series recently released."
