Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 CrossFire Review
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier on today we took a look at AMD's latest and greatest graphics card, the Radeon 6990. In that article we looked at a number of performance aspects and various features the card offered but one item was missing, CrossFire performance as we were yet to receive a second card. That changes now though as we have one of the first retail branded 6990s in our test system and have combined it with the reference model to look at performance when gaming on one and three screens. This includes Dragon Age 2, Crysis 2 and of course the customary run through 3DMark 2011."

     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Radeon 6990 has just launched and today we will be putting it up against the GTX 580 and 570 (with SLI) as well as the 5970 to find out how the new card from AMD compares. As well as the standard 1920x1080 tests we will also cover 5760x1080 on all products, 3D Blu-Ray, GPU computing, power, noise, temps and overclocking."

MSI GeForce GTX 550 Ti Cyclone II 1 GB
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's new factory overclocked GeForce GTX 550 Ti Cyclone II uses an improved version of MSI's Cyclone cooler which increases air flow without increasing noise. As a result the card's temperatures never exceed 60°C - no matter what you throw at it.

“One of the interesting things about the launch of the GTX 550 Ti is there will be several models available from Nvidia partners simultaneously, and this one is from Gigabyte. Bringing a custom cooler and a factory overclock, today is quite exciting if you're in the market for a new graphics card that won't break the bank.”

ASUS GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti is the latest in the Fermi lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 560 Ti, it does have some distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. One of the interesting things about the launch of the GTX 550 Ti is there will be several models available from Nvidia partners simultaneously, and this one is from ASUS. Bringing a custom cooler and a factory overclock, along with voltage tweaking ability for even more horsepower, today is quite exciting if you're in the market for a new graphics card that won't break the bank.”

ASUS GeForce GTX 550Ti DirectCU TOP 1GB DDR5 DX11 Video Card Review
     Sat, Mar 19 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS GeForce GTX 550Ti DirectCU TOP can be considered a "Top Sniper". The GTX 550Ti DirectCU TOP takes the 550 to the near extreme. The 550Ti is a re-built 450 to meet the needs of the newest games and gamers. Unlike the 450, the 550Ti now has a 192-bit memory interface, and, because of mixed density GDDR5 chips, still retains the 1GB size. ASUS has increased the core clock speed to 975MHz and added their DirectCU cooling solution on top."

Diamond Multimedia All In Wonder HD Premium 5000 Review
     Sat, Mar 19 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Diamond Multimedia All In Wonder HD Premium 5000 can fill that last puzzle piece for your media PC. The All In Wonder 5000 combines a good mainstream video card with a popular TV Tuner all in one package. You get a Radeon HD 5570 GPU with an internal 750 PCI-E TV Tuner. The Diamond Radeon HD 5570 isn't a powerhouse video card, however there is enough "pow" in it for everyday general use and a bit of light gaming."

AMD Radeon HD 6990 review
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Radeon HD 6990, the dual-GPU based graphics card that has been the topic of rumors and discussion for a long time. AMD placed two Cayman XT GPUs (R6970) onto one PCB and allows them to be clocked at R6970 speeds as well, in fact you'll get options in clock-frequencies and TDP with the help of a small micro-switch seated on the card, each leads to a BIOS, one with more acceptable TDPs and the other enabled a higher clock frequency mode. Cayman XT GPUs, that means the full shader processor count inside that GPU is available, that sums up towards 3072 shader processors. In short, this graphics card is a beast, hence we wrote 24 pages of content on it, read the full review right here.

Posted by: STAFF
With the new release of the GTX 550 Ti upon us, we have the ASUS factory overclocked GTX550 Ti DirectCU TOP for review today. The 550 Ti is not intended to a be top contender in the market, but rather a lower-end card with great upgrading potential via overclocking and SLI. With the ASUS 550 Ti coming with the DirectCU cooling solution, we anticipate seeing some very low temperatures. The ASUS GTX 550 also comes with SAP (Super Alloy Power) design which is said to deliver 15% performance boost over non-SAP models, 2.5 times longer lifespan, and run 35C cooler. Now let’s move on past all of the niceties and get on to why you are really here, the actual results. Read on…

Sapphire HD6870 Vapor-X
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Sapphire did place the Vapor-X Cooler on the card, and when you compare the temperatures seen by the Vapor-X model compared to the regular model Sapphire has out, there was a 17°C difference in temperatures at the stock load testing between the two models. The overall performance of the HD6870 Vapor-X card was quite impressive when it was stacked up against the competition at stock speeds and once the card was clocked to 1GHz, it was able to tear though the tests that I threw at it and give some good numbers that were quite competitive."

Lucid Virtu and Intel Quick Sync: Pairing GPUs
     Thu, Mar 17 2011 | 1:10P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Sandy Bridge processors have won acclaim for their hardware-accelerated video transcoding capabilities, dubbed Quick Sync, but there are significant limitations in the current iteration. LucidLogix, a company that's heretofore been known for its multi-GPU Hydra hardware, has developed a software-only solution named Virtu that it claims will solve one of the major issues that prevent enthusiasts from taking advantage of Sandy Bridge's transcoding performance, however. When used in conjunction with an H57 motherboard, Virtu allows for both a discrete GPU and Sandy Bridge's integrated GPU to function simultaneously, apart from a few quirks...
