EVGA GeForce GTX 950 SSC 2 GB
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA's GTX 950 SSC features the company's signature ACX 2.0 cooler which provides very low noise levels during gaming and the fans will stop in idle and light gaming to remove noise completely. The SSC is also overclocked out of the box, which provides an 8% performance boost.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 Review: Affordable Maxwell
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA is launching a new mainstream graphics card today, the GeForce GTX 950, based on the company’s GM206 GPU. The GM206 debuted on the GeForce GTX 960, which launched a few months back. As the new card’s name suggests though, the GM206 used on the GeForce GTX 950 isn’t quite as powerful as the one used on the GTX 960. The company is targeting this card at MOBA (massive online battle arena) players, who don’t necessarily need the most powerful GPUs on the market, but want smooth, consistent framerates at resolutions of 1080p or below. It's being positioned as a significant, yet affordable, upgrade over cards like the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, that are a couple of generations old...

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 950 AMP! Edition 2 GB
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ZOTAC's GTX 950 AMP! Edition is the only GTX 950 with a backplate. It is cooled by a full-metal thermal solution that gives the product a high-quality look and feel. The card is also the fastest in our tests thanks to a large overclock on both the GPU and memory.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 950 OC 2 GB
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 3:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte GTX 950 is an affordable custom-design variant of the GTX 950. It comes with an overclock out of the box and the board is relatively compact. Thanks to NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture, its power draw is refreshingly low with less than 100W during typical gaming.

Sapphire Nitro R7 370 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While it is fun to get excited about the $1000 CPUs and video cards, PCI Express SSD’s, and all of the other cutting edge tech that we see coming through the office from time to time. The reality of life is that when you are building your new gaming PC you will move likely set a realistic budget and you have to work around that. A lot of people ask for feedback on their builds for helping putting together a parts list and a lot of those people are looking at a budget of around $600 for their new PCs. So at that price point typically an ideal video card is the main purchase as everything else is as cheap as you can get but the card budget comes in around $175 to $200. So today I wanted to take a look at what AMD and more specifically Sapphire has to offer at that price point. That is their new Nitro series R7 370.

Sapphire R9 Fury Tri-X OC 4 GB
     Thu, Aug 20 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire's R9 Fury comes with a large triple-slot, triple-fan cooler that delivers fantastic noise levels during gaming, and in idle it will turn off the fans completely for the perfect noise-free experience. The card also comes overclocked out of the box and the dual-BIOS lets you switch to one with increased power limit.

Asus GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini 4096MB
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
An increasing percentage of our readers have been building systems for use next to a high definition television set, inside compact cases. Our review product today - the Asus GTX 970 DC Mini is designed for just such a scenario. This diminutive solution is just 170mm long and will fit inside the smallest cases available on the market today.

HIS R7 370 IceQ X2 OC 2GB Video Card Review
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 3:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we have mentioned before, the R7 370 GPU from AMD is basically one of the most refreshed components from the 300 series since we have seen it since Radeon HD 7850, then in the R7 265/270 cards and now again. While the speeds have been boosted, we have the same architecture involved which basically means that older game titles should work fine at Full-HD resolution but newer titles need to be dialed down at lower detail levels in order to reach playable FPS.

First DX12 In-Game Benchmarks A Level Playing Field?
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 3:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the weekend press was handed access to one of the world’s first DirectX 12 benchmarks courtesy of Oxide’s Ashes of the Singularity. This isn’t a synthetic test like 3DMark’s API overhead feature test, but rather a true real-world benchmark using a pre-Beta version of the upcoming game. And we’ve all been salivating over a way to measure real-world performance improvements from DirectX 11 to DirectX 12 since first learning about Microsoft’s updated API. Aside from being our first glimpse into how an actual engine for an actual game performs under DirectX 12, it’s also something crucially important to NVIDIA and AMD: How their drivers and hardware stack up under DirectX 12...

The ASUS GTX 980 Ti STRIX OC may have been launched a bit later than its competitors but the wait was worth it. This may be the best GTX 980 Ti currently available.

GeForce GTX 980 Ti SLI vs. Radeon R9 Fury X Crossfire
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Compared to reference designs by Nvidia and AMD, their partners usually come up with creations that run cooler and quieter. A perfect example of this is Gainward's GTX 980 Ti "Golden Sample", with a 15% factory overclock that provides 11% more performance on average and a "Zero RPM fan design". Not wanting to simply just revisit the GTX 980 Ti's performance, we'll be hooking up two of these in SLI and test them agains a pair of AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X cards in Crossfire.

MSI R9 380 Gaming 2G
     Sat, Aug 15 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I was able to reach an overclock of +148MHz on the Antigua core and 1607MHz on the 2GB of GDDR5 memory for final clock speeds of 1148/1607MHz on the core and memory. Pretty solid results from a mid-range card. Cooling performance was a mixed bag until you see how the Torx fan-equipped Twin Frozr V cooling solution performs its magic. Equipped with a large S-shaped heat pipe along with the several smaller heat pipes, you get excellent cooling at both stock and overclocked settings, along with a nice noise profile that is dead silent during 2D loads.”

PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 390 8GB GDDR5 Review
     Sat, Aug 15 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD officially took the wraps off of its Radeon R7 and R9 300 series of graphics cards, and disclosed some details regarding the R9 Fury—a.k.a Fiji—during a livestream held near the E3 convention earlier this week. Today though, we’ve actually got one of the “new” Radeon R9 300 series cards in-hand for some review and benchmark action. We put “new” in quotes, because the entire R7 and R9 300 series line-up is built around the same GPUs used in the R7 an R9 200 series. The Powercolor PCS+ R9 390 8GB card we’ll be showing you here, for example, features an AMD Hawaii GPU at its heart, similar to the Radeon R9 290...

MSI R9 390X Gaming 8 GB
     Sat, Aug 15 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's Radeon R9 390X GAMING comes with a massive triple-slot dual-fan cooler, which turns off its fans completely when the card is idle. Thanks to the overclock out of the box, the card matches GTX 980 performance at 1440p at beyond. Like all R9 390X cards, the MSI R9 390X GAMING is equipped with 8 GB of video memory.

ASUS STRIX GTX 960 DirectCU II OC Video Card Review
     Fri, Aug 14 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For our GPU review today we have the ASUS STRIX GTX 960 DirectCU II OC, one of the highest factory overclocked GeForce GTX 960 that money can buy. We will compare it to the fastest overclocked Radeon R9 285 that we have at the Underground Bunker to see which reigns supreme at the $200 price point.
