PNY GTX 950 2GB Graphics Card Update Review
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following on from our GTX 950 round-up article, PNY has sent a model which looks extremely promising. We have already seen that the GTX 950 range performs extremely well and the price is extremely attractive for a cheap gaming build. The PNY GTX 950 is the cheapest GTX 950 that PNY offers and features a single fan design. This is a step away from the usual dual fan designs that PNY produce and personally I really like the subtle design on this.

XFX R9 380 4G Double Dissipation Black Edition
     Sun, Nov 01 2015 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No body in the GPU manufacturing community does a Black Edition like XFX does and when they release an XFX R9 380 4G Double Dissipation Black Edition we wanted to be first in line to grab one and get it on the test bench. The XFX R9 380 4G DD Black Edition is a sweet little GPU that pushes 1792 Stream processors with a core speed of 1030MHz across a 256-bit memory bus to 4 gigabytes of GDDR5 memory running at 5800MHz effective. This particular generation of cards XFX has been dressing in the Double Dissipation heatsink / fan setup that has proven to be one of the most effective cooling solutions we’ve seen for GPU air cooling. If we had to go down our checklist of must haves for our personal GPU’s XFX is hitting every single mush have check box we can think of.

ASUS Strix GTX 950 DC2OC, Strix Goes Mainstream!
     Sat, Oct 31 2015 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS released the Strix GTX 950 DC2OC at an Entry / Mainstream price of $159.99 and previous to the GTX 950 NVIDIA was stuck at the $200 price point with the GTX 960. The GTX 960 $200 price point left them vulnerable to sub $200 AMD video cards covering that price point and after an appropriate period of time the GTX 950 was born to fill the gap in the NVIDIA pricing structure. The ASUS Strix GTX 950 DC2OC utilities the same GM206 core that the GTX 960 uses but NVIDIA trimmed away a little of the hardware to make the $160 price range.

MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning 6GB

Posted by: STAFF
MSI's new GTX 980 Ti Lightning is amazing. It's the fastest, quietest and coolest GTX 980 Ti we ever tested. All at the same time! What a fantastic product, if only the price was lower. Clocking in at $780, it's over $150 more expensive than the cheapest GTX 980 Ti variants.

Gigabyte GTX 950 Xtreme Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 4:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a little while ago the world was introduced to the new budget Maxwell GPU from Nvidia. The budget segment is considered by many to be in the range of sub - $200.00 for a GPU. The GTX 950 is aimed at the budget market. Gigabyte recently released the Gigabyte GTX 950 Xtreme edition. The Xtreme edition's chips are binned …

"Continuing on from Friday's article that was a 22-way comparison of AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards on SteamOS for Steam Linux gaming, which tested the hardware at the common TV resolution of 1080p, here are results for the higher-end Radeon and GeForce graphics cards at 4K."

Best Graphics Cards of 2015
     Thu, Oct 29 2015 | 4:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia unleashed just four new GPUs in 2015 while AMD delivered eight cards if you're willing to be loose with the definition of "new" and three if you're not: Radeon R9 Fury X, Fury and Nano. With no more releases from either camp for the remainder of the year, let's break down each price bracket where key battles are being played out to pick some bang-for-buck winners.

MSI's Sea Hawk represents a new generation of GTX 980 Ti cards; ones which incorporate water cooling to lower temperature and boost performance. But does the $100 premium make it worthwhile?

The AMD Gigabyte R9 270

Here at eTeknix we serve a wide range of readers: from casual to hardcore PC users as well as gamers, overclockers and more. As a result our readers have differing levels of technical knowledge about a range of different things: today we are covering the field of graphics card overclocking. This article is aimed at a specific set of people, those who have little or minimal knowledge about graphics card overclocking, but we hope that even more experienced overclockers may be able to pick up a few tips or tricks from this article. To the seasoned PC enthusiast graphics card overclocking is a self-explanatory term but for the casual PC user it may be an alien term, so what does it actually mean? In its simplest form it is about increasing the clock speed (which is measured in frequency) at which your graphics card operates. By default all graphics will ship with two different clock speeds: a clock speed for the graphics card’s core (or engine) and a clock speed for the memory that the graphics card uses.These default clock speeds are referred to as stock speeds. The process of overclocking entails trying to raise any combination of those clock speeds above their stock level, whether that means the core clock, the memory clock or both. Hence the term overclocking is formed from the presumption that you will be clocking your graphics card over its stock levels.

GPU App Showdown: AMD Gaming Evolved vs Nvidia GeForce Experience
     Sat, Oct 17 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since last year AMD and Nvidia have both been fairly eager to develop and push their own software to be used with their graphics cards products. AMD released their Gaming Evolved app in September 2013 which is produced by Raptr while Nvidia released their in-house software called GeForce Experience in January 2013. Both AMD and Nvidia have been eager to lavish unique features onto their software that incentivise prospective graphics card buyers to choose them over the competition. This can also be seen as part of a broader trend among hardware vendors who are keen to offer just more than hardware. To the keen observer it has been a dramatic transformation over the past 2-3 years with SSD, motherboard, graphics card and even power supply vendors all offering value-added software to their products.

GeForce GTX 950
     Sat, Oct 17 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far, 2015 has given us a bounty of high-end graphics cards. If you want to spend somewhere north of three hundred bucks on a graphics card—and heck, maybe three times that—then you have plenty of shiny new options from which to choose. I've spent a borderline scandalous amount of time testing graphics cards in 4K resolutions in the past six months. Playing with the fancy toys is nice, but it's not very realistic. The vast majority of PC gamers play at resolutions of 1080p or below, and for the most part, you can get away with using a much more affordable graphics card when you "only" have a couple of megapixels to paint. That's pretty much the rationale behind the GeForce GTX 950, a new entry in Nvidia's graphics card lineup that promises a nice mix of price and performance.

GeForce NOW streaming game service
     Sat, Oct 17 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday NVIDIA officially announced the new GeForce NOW streaming game service, the conclusion to the years-long beta and development process known as NVIDIA GRID. As I detailed on my story yesterday about the reveal, GeForce NOW is a $7.99/mo. subscription service that will offer on-demand, cloud-streamed games to NVIDIA SHIELD devices, including a library of 60 games for that $7.99/mo. fee in addition to 7 titles in the “purchase and play” category. There are several advantages that NVIDIA claims make GeForce NOW a step above any other streaming gaming service including PlayStation Now, OnLive and others. Those include load times, resolution and frame rate, combined local PC and streaming game support and more.

MSI GTX 960 4GD5T OC Reader Review
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A new user review has been published on OCinside.de. This time the video card MSI GeForce GTX 960 4GD5T OC has been tested by user Hipp0campus. The price class of 200 EUR is traditionally fiercely fought over by the two leading manufacturers AMD and nVidia. The price-conscious gamer can usually find a fitting piece of hardware in this category for letting him/her play the most recent video games at high settings. Currently the search for a card of this range for your pc turns out to be more of an act of faith. The nVidia GTX 960 as well as the AMD Radeon R9 380 are equally good choices. One point in favor of the GeForce card would be the lower Power consumption under heavy loads, but we will get to that later on.
