Posted by: STAFF
Xtreme Gaming, that's what Gigabyte calls its new flagship graphics cards. All the pixel accelerators which belong to this series features a powerful cooler, a complex PCB and a beefy factory OC.

NVIDIA Quadro M4000 Review
     Wed, Dec 30 2015 | 6:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA Quadro M4000 has been out since August, but as the successor to the K4200, it’s the flagship mainstream professional graphics card. So we are reviewing it here to show how it compares to its predecessor (and the higher-end K5200). In terms of specification, it’s another step forward, despite having a similar £777 inc VAT price.

”When you look at the XFX DNA of the R9 380X DD XXX OC, it's clear that XFX puts together an excellent product. You get constant innovation on the cooling solutions that make up the company's Double Dissipation and Ghost 3.0 cooling systems. Splitting the shroud into two removable covers that can be removed without pulling off the heat sink assembly is an interesting development. What's even more interesting is the ability to remove the fans to clean the heat sink is genius. The 90mm fans use a clip-in mounting system that lets the user pull the fans out and clean the dust bunnies in about 30 seconds flat. That allows the cooling to operate at its best with little maintenance. If you don't have to clean the dust out, well, you are truly lucky. This one feature would be welcome thanks to the dander and dust my dog produces.”

PowerColor PCS+ R9 380X Myst Edition
     Mon, Dec 14 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”After putting another R9 380X through its paces, I was a little apprehensive when it came time to overclock PowerColor's PCS+ R9 380X. Those fears were soon dismissed as I started pushing up the core clock speed, as 1100MHz was an easy stretch at full stability. At 1150MHz, it would pass some basic stability tests, but was only good enough for some of the less stressful benches. While 1150MHz would have been a really decent clock speed, I had to back it down to 1126MHz to run all the benches long term. After 30 minutes of looping the Heaven 4 benchmark, 1126MHz was the applied and in use clock speed. Something nice to see is AMD is using variable clock speeds now. Memory overclocking was just as fruitful, with a final clock speed of 1601MHz or a 126MHz boost over the factory overclocked 1475MHz speed. Boosts of 106MHz on the core and 126MHz on the GDDR5 memory are nothing to sneeze at when you look at the performance increase potential this adds to the FPS bottom line. On a percentage basis, the core clock speed increase is just over 10% on the core and around 8.5% on the 4GB of memory.”

Radeon Technology Group

Last week the Radeon Technology Group invited a handful of press and analysts to a secluded location in Sonoma, CA to discuss the future of graphics, GPUs and of course Radeon. For those of you that seem a bit confused, the RTG (Radeon Technologies Group) was spun up inside AMD to encompass all of the graphics products and IP inside the company. Though today’s story is not going to focus on the fundamental changes that RTG brings to the future of AMD, I will note, without commentary, that we saw not a single AMD logo in our presentations or in the signage present throughout the week.
