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

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.

MSI GeForce GTX 580 1536 MB Video Cards in SLI
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 4:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I was always a bit bummed that I never got to test the GTX 480 in SLI. We only ever had one reference card come through our doors and after that we saw MSI, Galaxy and GIGABYTE release models that were all based on their own design, making it pretty much impossible to SLI them. The main reason I wanted to test them, though, was because we knew it was going to be the fastest dual card setup we would've tested in our testbed. Crossfire wasn't scaling as strong as it is now with the HD 6000 series and the GTX 480 had a nice little jump on the HD 5870. Today is a second chance for us to look at the top end NVIDIA offering in SLI. We've got an MSI and reference GTX 580 and together we should end up with a load of power. We heard issues of 100c cores with GTX 480s and we experienced that kind of temperature with the GTX 470. The heat's a lot more attractive on the GTX 580, though, and so is power draw and noise. Since we've already looked at the MSI GTX 580 by itself, we'll just get straight into our testbed setup to see what's going on before checking out the almighty numbers."

Zotac GeForce GTX 580 1536MB Video Card
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Just about a month ago NVIDIA announced the new Fermi GF110 GPU and the GeForce GTX 580 video card. This will be NVIDIA’s new flagship card replacing the older GTX 480. The GF100 GPU was never what NVIDIA meant it to be and they went back and revised it a little bit for this new line of cards. This means they were able to achieve higher clock speeds and all 512 CUDA cores are enabled. Today we will be looking at a reference model from Zotac, the ZT-50101-10P. Let’s see how this card compares to the competition.

Shader Difference - GeForce GTX 580 at GTX 480 Clocks
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Being able to test the difference that Shaders make isn’t something that we normally test or get the chance to test very often. The launch of the GTX 480, though, was full of so much drama in relation to yields and its performance. The biggest change that seemed to happen right in front of our eyes was a shift from the 512 Shaders we thought the card would ship with, to 480 Shaders. Sure, we knew it was going to cause a performance hit, but how much of a performance hit? - The decreased amount of Shaders was only one of the issues with the GTX 480, though, with other issues being heat, noise and power draw. While the latter didn’t bother me, the first two were real issues; first we saw Galaxy attack the heat and noise with an awesome looking triple fan, triple slot cooler. We then saw GIGABYTE and MSI attack the model; in the end the GTX 480 looked like a great product and to be honest it still is, especially with some of the bargain prices it can be grabbed for now from some places. We wonder, though, what would’ve happened if the GTX 580 we looked at today launched as the GTX 480 in March; the same clocks, but the new cooler and more importantly the 512 Shaders that we had hoped to have initially."

EVGA Geforce GTX 570 Superclocked video card
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 12:28A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late last year, NVIDIA released their GTX 570 – a card that proved itself to be the perfect solution to AMD”s upcoming HD 6900-series since it ended up outperforming even the GTX 480. Since then board partners have released a steady stream of non-reference designs and EVGA has led the pack with their Superclocked edition.

ASUS EAH6870 DirectCU
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 12:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"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
     Mon, Jan 17 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"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?"
