NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 GM204 Review: Power and Efficiency
     Mon, Oct 13 2014 | 4:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though NVIDIA decided to not go as aggressive as I`d like on price with the GeForce GTX 980, the raw power efficiency of these two new graphics cards blows me away. The fact that our reference GTX 980 is able to outperform the R9 290X while using 130 watts LESS POWER says a lot. I mean, with a 165 watt TDP, that is almost another whole GTX 980 card worth of power being used. Even comparing NVIDIA to NVIDIA, the GTX 980 can beat the GTX 780 Ti while using 85 watts less power at the wall. The GTX 970 sees similar advantages to its competition: 80 watts lower than the R9 290 and 55 watts lower than the GTX 780. "

NVIDIA Starting To Sign/Validate GPU Firmware Images
     Mon, Oct 13 2014 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"To the dismay of open-source fans, NVIDIA is tightening the belt so to speak around their GPU hardware: with Maxwell and future hardware, certain aspects of the NVIDIA graphics processor chip will only be available to the "Falcon" (a.k.a. "FUC") firmware images that have been signed by NVIDIA. While this will throw a wrench at Nouveau's open-source effort, NVIDIA at least informed Nouveau and are jointly working towards an adequate solution."

Nvidia: We will focus on G-Sync
     Mon, Oct 13 2014 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia Corp. on Friday told KitGuru that it will focus solely on its proprietary G-Sync technology and not on a potentially competing Adaptive-Sync, which will become available sometimes in 2015. According to Nvidia, G-Sync-enabled graphics cards and monitors are available today, which is why it is natural to concentrate on development of appropriate eco-system.

ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Strix review
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review and test the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Strix. Armed with that h00t of a cooler, a custom PCB, quality components and a factory overclock this product is bound to perform, whilst staying very silent. Heck, the DirectCU II based cooler won't even spin with GPU temperatures up-to roughly 67 Degrees C. The card has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you. Oh and hey, it overclocks nicely as well to almost 1500 MHz on the GPU boost frequency.

The L2 cache of the Maxwell design is four times that of the Kepler design containing 2MB this actually maximizes bandwidth by reducing the amount of requests from the GPU DRAM."

MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G Review @HiTech Legion
     Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 4:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G graphics card features hybrid cooling, the cooler has two 10CM fans that work independently. The MSI GTX 970 Gaming Twin Frozr V design also has what MSI refers to as Zero Frozr technology, when the GPU is under 50C the fans stop spinning for silent operation. This means that at times you basically end up with a passively cooled GPU."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980: The Best GPU For Linux Gamers
     Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 1:34A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 as their highest-end offerings based on their Maxwell architecture. Since the GTX 750 series debut I have been anxious to see Maxwell succeed Kepler in the high-end space and finally last week I got hands on time with the GTX 980. As long as you are not committed to using pure open-source graphics drivers, the GeForce GTX 980 is the best you can get as a Linux gamer/enthusiast for high performance graphics for ending out 2014."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Dominates With OpenCL On Linux
     Thu, Oct 09 2014 | 1:34A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week I published the Linux review of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 high-end Maxwell graphics card. While there were several OpenCL benchmarks included in that review, most of the tests focused upon the Linux OpenGL performance. For those that requested more GPGPU benchmarks, in this article are many Linux OpenCL compute benchmarks of the GTX 980 and other high-end AMD and NVIDIA GPUs from recent generations."

Asus GTX 750 Ti Strix OC Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Oct 07 2014 | 5:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even now that the GTX 750 Ti isnt the only Maxwell cards on the market, I still find them an interesting GPU. Some of you may remember from our launch coverage of the GTX 750 Ti that it packed a punch without ever needing an extra power connection. Well that was the reference design; many of the other models on the market sadly required a 6-pin power connection for their overclocked models. Well Asus sent over their Strix OC Edition of the GTX 750 Ti and low and behold, it has the same low power requirements as the reference design. Today Im going to put it through our test suite and see what a little overclock does for the Maxwell powered GTX 750 Ti."

Sapphire ITX Compact R9 285 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Oct 03 2014 | 8:58A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I absolutely love building Mini-ITX gaming rigs. Every time I build a new Lunchbox (what I call our LAN rigs), I try to make them smaller and faster. Either of those along can be a challenge, but trying to constantly pack a faster rig into a small can be a huge challenge. Thankfully recently motherboard manufactures, video card manufactures, and heatsink manufactures have taken notice and have started to make things easier. With the launch of the R9 285 Sapphire jumped into that same market with their first Mini-ITX focused video card. With their focus on attending LANs this wasnt a huge shock. What was surprising was the fact they went with the new R9 285 when MSI has the R9 270 and GTX 760. I have no doubt that the ITX Compact R9 285 will outperform the other Mini-TX cards, heck we proved that live at our LAN last weekend. Power usage and heat are also important in small form factor builds, I cant wait to see how well it will perform."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
