GeForce GTX 1080 Video Card Review
     Mon, Feb 13 2017 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We tested the GeForce GTX 1080, a high-end video card from NVIDIA. Let's see how powerful it is running games in 4K resolution.

Gigabyte Technology launches Quadro graphics cards
     Sun, Feb 12 2017 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DIY motherboard maker Gigabyte Technology, in view of slowing growth in global demand for gaming notebooks, has stepped into the market for niche graphics cards specifically for use by film and animation designers and other art professionals, and has launched Quadro series graphics cards through cooperation with Nvidia in the Thailand market and will do in other markets in the Southeast Asia region, according to the company.

KFA2 GeForce GTX 1050 OC 2GB Video Card Review
     Sun, Feb 12 2017 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 1050 implementation from KFA2 provides a small overclock from the factory, a dual-slot cooling system that can keep the GPU at low temperatures even during long gaming sessions and no less than three video outputs. The card lacks fancy stuff such as LED-lighted fans or logos as we have seen on more expensive card models and does not require extra power from a separate PCI-Express PSU connector. GTX 1050 represents a light version of the 1050Ti (with one SM disabled) and only 2GB RAM but still succeeds to hold its own in games such as Dirt Rally, Tomb Raider 2013, Bioshock Infinite, Batman Arhkam Origins and more, with the details set to high and at a resolution of 1920z1080."

OCC's Top 3 Video Cards of 2017
     Sun, Feb 12 2017 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Don't let the naming convention fool you, as MSI's X designation lets you know it is the factory overclocked model that receives a backplate and RGB lighting for the card. The X model signals a significant boost to the core clock speeds and memory speeds over the Founders Edition. MSI has equipped this model with a 1847MHz Core (Boost) and 8GB of GDDR5X memory running at 10108MHz. With the added features like running a silent, gaming, and OC mode, MSI can easily achieve this using Twin Frozr VI cooling with Zero Frozr technology. The fans stop spinning for idle, multimedia, light gaming, and anything below 60 °C. MSI also adsd in double ball bearings to give the TORX 2.0 fans a long life. This GTX 1080 model comes as a full custom PCB with 10-phase power circuit for the maximum power stability. Considering this card is on par with last year's GTX 980 running in SLI, there is no reason not to buy this card if 4K gaming is in your near future.”

EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming Review: Mini But Mighty
     Sat, Feb 11 2017 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Something obvious to anyone that’s done any shopping for graphics cards recently is that NVIDIA’s add-in board partners have gone all-in on Pascal. Virtually all of NVIDIA’s tier 1 partners have dozens of Pascal-based products in their line-up, from ultra-powerful, triple-slot, overclocked GeForce GTX 1080s to half-height, low-power GTX 1050s. Tucked away neatly in the middle, however, is a graphics card with enough muscle to power a mainstream gaming system, but with a form factor that’s small and power-friendly enough for a compact mini-ITX build – the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming...

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 iCX FTW2 Review: Everything Detected
     Fri, Feb 10 2017 | 3:44P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For close to two decades, EVGA has been producing graphics cards based on NVIDIA GPU technology. The company's current line-up consists of literally dozens of cards featuring GeForce GTX 10-series GPUs, with various clock speeds, cooler configurations, and form factors. Although the GeForce 10 series has been out for quite a while now, and EVGA already has a voluminous line-up of cards, the company isn’t done releasing new products just yet. In fact, the GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2 card featuring EVGA’s iCX technology we’ll be showing you here is arguably the company’s most extensive revamp yet.

EVGA iCX Technology Examined On The GeForce GTX 1080 FTW2
     Fri, Feb 10 2017 | 3:44P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
VGA iCX Technology stands for interactive cooling technology. EVGA has designed a new PCB from the ground up that now includes 9 additional temperature sensors around the board in addition to the one that already comes on the NVIDIA GPU. This means that EVGA iCX cards have a total of 10 sensors. EVGA uses two micro controller units (MCUs) to monitor/controller everything. Read on to find out more!

EVGA iCX Technology
     Fri, Feb 10 2017 | 3:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Previous issues aside, the creation of iCX Technology is built around one simple question: is one GPU temperature sensor enough? For nearly all of today’s graphics cards, cooling is based around the temperature of the GPU silicon itself, as measured by NVIDIA (for all of EVGA’s cards). This is how fan curves are built, how GPU clock speeds are handled with GPU Boost, how noise profiles are created, and more. But as process technology has improved, and GPU design has weighed towards power efficiency, the GPU itself is often no longer the thermally limiting factor.

HIS RX 460 Slim-iCooler OC 2GB Video Card Review
     Sat, Feb 04 2017 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Polaris 11, AMD continues its line of low-end but cost-efficient GPUs and RX 460 cards prove that they can handle Full-HD games at medium (and sometimes) high details, depending on the optimization. RX 460 was mostly designed for competitive titles such as DOTA, League of Legends, Counterstrike: Source and not the most demanding ones which require quite a bit more performance and frame buffer. In most tests, it did trade punches with the R9 370 card from the previous generation and got incredibly close or even surpassed it in DirectX12 games, given the better optimization. HIS has a great contribution here by creating a single-slot design which can fit in a wide variety of systems."

Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ll be reviewing our fifth GTX 1060 by way of the STRIX GTX 1060 OC. This graphics card sits inside the Republic of Gamers (ROG) lineup and therefore has some rather special features which include the renowned DirectCU III cooler bearing a triple fan configuration, Aura RGB lighting, and a substantial factory overclock to both the GPU and memory.

First AMD Radeon Instinct Servers Revealed!
     Wed, Jan 25 2017 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When AMD launched Radeon Instinct at the 2016 AMD Tech Summit in Sonoma earlier this month, they showed off several servers that will be powered by the new Radeon Instinct accelerators. These Radeon Instinct servers can now deliver up to 3 petaflops (3,000 TFLOPS) of FP16 compute performance using those Radeon Instinct accelerators.

Does the Q6600 Still Have Game in 2017?
     Sun, Jan 22 2017 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Released about 10 years ago, we thought it would be interesting to see how the Q6600 holds up in 2017 while playing today's games on modern GPUs. In other words, what would happen if you paired a trusty old PC with a GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 1070.

Posted by: STAFF
Zotac's Zbox Magnus EN1070 mini-PC packs a GeForce GTX 1070 and a quad-core Intel CPU into a footprint not much larger than a bare Mini-ITX motherboard. We put it to the test to see whether it offers monster performance from its minuscule form factor.
