ECS GeForce GTX 460 Black Video Card Review
     Sun, Jan 09 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 460 Black video card from ECS is another product that comes with the high performance Arctic Cooling Accelero Turbo Pro cooler, it's also overclocked from the factory. Its performances are very close to the previously reviewed Calibre X460G and the fan speeds are much lower than the ones from the Sparkle model.

AMD HD 6970 and HD 6950
     Sun, Jan 09 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Many will be disappointed that the HD 6970 did not come out and just lay the smack down on the GTX 580. But if you can get performance that close for a price tag that's $150 less expensive you have a win. In that respect I think AMD hit the mark. The HD 6950 looks to play in the field just under the level of the GTX 570 and the outgoing HD 5870 and in that area it hit the mark and delivers the performance to hold this area for now."

AMD Cayman HD 6970 & HD 6950 Launch Review
     Sun, Jan 09 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD's high end enthusiast GPU codenamed 'Cayman' has arrived, bringing Northern Islands Architecture and Features with it. Priced aggressively, does it have the mouth to go with the money against the last years hero, the HD 5870 and this years current value performance champ, the GTX 570? Crossfire and more, with Rage3D!"

AMD HD6950 and HD6970
     Sun, Jan 09 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago AMD created quite the confusion when they released the HD6870 and HD6850, two GPU's that contrary to their naming did NOT replace the HD5870 and HD5850. The reason for the naming change was that AMD wanted to rearrange their naming scheme and use HD69x0 for the enthusiast/high-end GPU's like HD6990, HD6970 and HD6950 while leaving HD68x0 for the performance cards. Today AMD finally has released two of the HD69x0 cards: the HD6970 and the HD6950, both replacement for the HD5870 and HD5850 respectively. The following image illustrates how AMD sees these two GPU's:

PowerColor Radeon 6870 PCS+ review
     Sat, Jan 08 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor decided to release an all new pre-overclocked model of the Radeon HD 6870. This is the PCS+ version where PowerColor pre-overclocks the card to 940 MHz (900 reference) and clock the memory at 4400 MHz coming from 4200 MHz. This should give the card a nifty nice boost. With Cayman luring just around the corner, let's have a quick peek at the PowerColor Radeon HD 6870 PCS+ and then head onwards into the review, where we'll cover the features, architecture, photo-shoot, power consumption and heat levels and benchmarks.

Sapphire HD 6950
     Sat, Jan 08 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While NVIDIA refines the Fermi core, AMD is launching a brand new GPU design codenamed Cayman. Cayman is going to be AMD's flagship products for 2011. The two cards that are released today, the HD 6970 and the HD 6950, are the first cards off the Cayman architecture. The HD 6970 is going to be AMD's flagship product where it is aimed to compete against NVIDIA's GTX 580 for the fastest GPU crown, while the HD 6950 is kind of AMD's secret weapon that is designed to fill the void of the GPU market at $300 price range. I will not re-iterate the technical aspect of the HD 6900 series because Bjorn has written an extensive article detailing the architectural design of the Cayman and the new features found with the HD 6900 series. In essence, AMD design the HD 6900 series with four major goals in mind:

issues that the GF100 had
     Sat, Jan 08 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
the GF100 GPU solves some issues that the GF100 had. Critics won't accept its higher model number and consider it more of a GF100b. Nvidia's very own BIOS-flashing tool now reveals that those critics and the makers behind the chip had the same idea.

Sapphire HD6970 BF:BC2 Vietnam Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jan 07 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was only a few months ago when everyone found out that AMD’s HD6800 series would not be their flagship rather a performance/price sweet spot. Today we finally have the chance to take a closer look at the new HD6970, AMD’s most powerful single GPU graphics card. Sapphire sent out one of their Radeon HD6970 Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam – Gaming Edition, a mouthful to say the least. But will the performance live up to the oddly long name? Let’s find out.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5670 review
     Fri, Jan 07 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're looking at the GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5670 vga card. At first sight nothing special about this card, apart from (reading from the box) enormeous 80mm large fan, the golden (!) plated HDMI connector and to top it off: DX11 support. Oh, and it's also Windows 7 compatible. Actually, the card doesn't look that bad, as in 'I have seen worse'. It's not a real good looker, though ... but it's what is underneath that big cooler that matters.

Introducing the Multi-GPU Index
     Fri, Jan 07 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Multi-GPU index is a portable set of data that we assign to determine the multi-gpu potential of any motherboard. A higher index number indicates a favorable condition for multiple graphics cards while a lower number indicates a hindrance in one of our leading indicators. Since the Index does not take into consideration system architecture it can be applied to motherboards regardless of processor or chipset generations.

Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme Plus meets HD 6970
     Fri, Jan 07 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hardwareoverclock.com has reviewed the Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme Plus vga cooler on a HD 6970. This videocard is very interesting, fast in performance, but also too load. Maybe we have found a quieter alternative with the Xtreme Plus. The results are very amazing.

Diamond Radeon HD 6970 XOC 2GB Video Card
     Thu, Jan 06 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samples from Diamond have been a bit few and far between, but we're glad to welcome them back with open arms. It wasn't hard to get my attention, though, as they waved a pre-overclocked HD 6970 in front of my face via email. Diamond has managed to attack this model fast; faster than anyone else and we wonder if that meant a 10MHz increase on the core and a 50MHz QDR memory bump. Well, I'm going to give you a bit of a spoiler here and let you know they've done more than that to the clocks."

Inno3D Geforce GTX460 OC Review
     Thu, Jan 06 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Some readers may remember that my first review of a GTX460 card was pretty negative – quite simply, the 768MB version I had been sent to test was no better than my GTX275 other than the DX11 capabilities, and in fact scored lower in most benchmarks than my older gen card. However, today I am reviewing the 1GB version – and not only that, the Inno3D “OC” version which is pre-overclocked to 820MHz core, 950MHz memory and a shader clock of 1640MHz – quite a step up from standard clocks (675MHz, 900Mhz, 1350Mhz respectively)."

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.
