”From a performance standpoint, the XFX RX 480 XXX GTR performs where its clock speeds dictate when comparing to the other Polaris GPUs I have tested. That puts the performance window right around the R9 390 and in some cases besting the GTX 1060. So what does that equate to in terms of FPS performance? It gets you between 45 and 90 FPS at a resolution of 1920x1080, depending on the game played. Cranking up the resolution to 2560x1440, the FPS levels drop a bit, but essentially you can play all the games in my comparison at up to 2560x1440 and really enjoy the experience. Overclocking helps improve the FPS levels delivered if you spend the time to tune the performance of the card. XFX did its homework and built this card to maintain the core clock speeds set in the card's BIOS so you do not see performance drops as the card heats up and starts pulling a more significant bit of power from the wall. By using the company's True Clock technology — a hardware clock speed optimizer instead of a software optimizer — you get the performance you pay for at all times. XFX's all-digital power supply circuitry with ultra low-noise inductors cooled by the all-new heat pipe equipped cooling solution definitely help drive the performance and stability of this card. Overclocking was not as robust as the other RX 480 cards I have looked at, but this card does hold its own with a better-than-average overclock.”

KFA² GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC
     Sun, Dec 18 2016 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nach den ganzen Topmodellen der neuen Grafikkarten Serie wollen wir auch dieses Jahr auch die günstigeren Modelle etwas genauer angesehen. Immerhin bieten die Hersteller für jedes Budget etwas Passendes an. Beim AMD sind es die Einsteiger-Grafikkarten RX 460, basierend auf der Polaris Architektur. Bei nVidia sind es die Modelle GTX 1050 und 1050Ti, die über den kleineren Pascal GP107 Chip verfügen. Aus dieser Serie haben wir uns das Sample von KFA² etwas genauer angesehen, die KFA² GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC mit 4GB Speicher. Auch diese Karte wurde auf den FullHD Bereich optimiert und soll als günstiges Einsteigermodell am Markt fungieren. Das Ziel ist natürlich AMD das Leben schwer zu machen.

AMD thinks it can fight back with its open-source ROCm
     Sun, Dec 18 2016 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thus far, Nvidia has enjoyed a dominant position in the burgeoning world of machine learning with its Tesla accelerators and CUDA-powered software platforms. AMD thinks it can fight back with its open-source ROCm HPC platform, the MIOpen software libraries, and Radeon Instinct accelerators. We examine how these new pieces of AMD's machine-learning puzzle fit together.

AMD Introduces Radeon Instinct Machine Intelligence And Deep Learning Accelerato
     Sat, Dec 17 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is announcing a new series of Radeon-branded products today, targeted at machine intelligence and deep learning enterprise applications, called Radeon Instinct. As its name suggests, the new Radeon Instinct line of products are comprised of GPU-based solutions for deep learning, inference, and training. The new GPUs are also complemented by a free, open-source library and framework for GPU accelerators, dubbed MIOpen. MIOpen is architected for high-performance machine intelligence applications, and is optimized for the deep learning frameworks in AMD’s ROCm software suite...

Corsair Dominator ROG 3200C16 Review
     Sat, Dec 17 2016 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Dominator ROG modules Corsair has some of the best looking DRAM modules on the market. The customer receives a red illumination, which in combination with the red anodized heatspreader, looks really great. Apart from that the specs are interesting as well and DDR4-3200 should definitely pack some punch.

Zotac GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme 8 GB
     Fri, Dec 16 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zotac's GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme is the company's flagship GTX 1080 and the best GTX 1080 we ever tested. It comes with high clocks out of the box and a large triple-slot cooler that makes it run at good temperatures and incredible noise levels. The fans even stop completely in idle and light gaming.

H.264 video encoding
     Sun, Dec 11 2016 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In August at the company’s annual developer forum, Intel officially took the lid off its 7th generation of Core processor series, codenamed Kaby Lake. The build up to this release has been an interesting one as we saw the retirement of the “tick tock” cadence of processor releases and instead are moving into a market where Intel can spend more development time on a single architecture design to refine and tweak it as the engineers see fit. With that knowledge in tow, I believed, as I think many still do today, that Kaby Lake would be something along the lines of a simple rebrand of current shipping product. After all, since we know of no major architectural changes from Skylake other than improvements in the video and media side of the GPU, what is left for us to look forward to?

Corsair Crystal Series 460X RGB & 570X RGB Review
     Sun, Dec 11 2016 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are to look at two new cases which feature within the new Crystal Series, the 460X RGB and 570X RGB. Both cases share a key likeness in that they both adopt tempered glass panelling as a key aspect of their design. Another similarity is that both mid-towers also take advantage of Corsair’s SP120 RGB LED fans and an extensive RGB fan controller to modify colours, speeds and lighting effects.

ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1080 Gaming A8G Review
     Thu, Dec 08 2016 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the slightly more conservatively clocked ‘A8G’ ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1080. With an out-of-the-box boost clock of up to 1809MHz (1835MHz if you enable the OC mode in ASUS’ software), the A8G STRIX is around 90MHz slower than the STRIX OC O8G model. But for the A8G’s reduced clock speed you get a purchase cost saving pushing towards £100 and considerably wider availability from retailers.

AMD Radeon Pro WX 4100 And WX 5100 Workstation
     Tue, Dec 06 2016 | 1:29P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD initially unveiled the Polaris-based Radeon Pro WX-series of professional workstation graphics cards all the way back in July at SIGGRAPH. Along with the initial announcement, AMD also disclosed that all of the cards would be built and sold by AMD exclusively, that the cards would carry 10-year warranties, and be backed by 24/7 VIP support. The FirePro brand would eventually be phased out as well, with the Radeon Pro moniker taking over as the company's pro graphics branding. Though the first run of Radeon Pro WX graphics cards are built around the same Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPUs as the mainstream Radeon RX 470 and RX 460 products, the Radeon Pro WX 4100 and WX 5100 series cards we'll be looking at here are different animals. Their clocks, coolers, PCB, and memory configurations are different, and because they target the professional workstation market, the amount of qualification the boards and their associated software and drivers go through is significantly more stringent...

MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver OC 8 GB
     Tue, Dec 06 2016 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's GTX 1070 Quick Silver does away with the red-and-black color theme and uses stylish silver instead. Thanks to the powerful cooler from the GTX 1070 Gaming Z, the card is the coolest and quietest GTX 1070 we ever tested. It also comes at a rather affordable $425.

MSI GTX 1050 OC 2G Graphic Card Review
     Sun, Dec 04 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the MSI GTX 1050 OC 2G graphic, Nvidia’s low(est?) current generation graphic card you can get your hands on. Most of these graphic cards have limited performance compared to the GTX 1070, RX 480 and even the GTX 1060. Typical with the GeForce xx50 labeled GPUs, its limited performance is good enough for certain titles without the need to upgrade that cheap power supply. Its also acts as a replacement for upgrading graphics provided by the current generation CPUs. As you would expect, Nvidia did compare this with previous two mainstream processors from Intel. The entire explanation of the 14nm GP107 core is covered in the GTX 1050 Ti review.
