Sapphire Nitro Radeon RX 480 4GB Video Card Review
     Mon, Aug 08 2016 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 480 4GB video card is finally here! Forget the woes of the AMD Radeon RX 480 reference design as this custom card could possibly solve all the GPU cooler and power concerns may had. The Nitro Radeon RX 480 solves the high temperature and loud noise levels by featuring a large GPU cooler with three copper heatpipes and dual fans. The board designers then placed an 8-pin PCIe power connector instead of a 6-pin to ensure the Pascal GPU on the RX 480 is getting all the power it needs and then some. At $20 more than the reference design ($199) it looks like Sapphire’s Nitro Radeon RX 480 was a God send and could be the Radeon RX 480 to own...

MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G Graphic Card Review
     Mon, Aug 08 2016 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X graphic card is a two- slot- two- fan- two- colour design with two overclocked profiles- gaming and overclock. The OC profile has a 100MHz bump in the memory clock. Both overclock settings are clocked lesser than the Zotac GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme, a very impressive GPU with a very large cooler and design.

MSI Aegis X Review
     Sun, Aug 07 2016 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you skim through the specification of MSI Aegis X it reveals a list of gaming goodness. Core i7 Skylake, Z170 chipset, GTX 1080 graphics and two SSDs with NVMe in RAID 0 will inevitably add up to epic frame rates and hours of fun. The list of components doesn’t prepare you for the tiny size of Aegis X which is indecently small for a high end PC with a volume of a mere 19.6 litres. Neither does the specification say anything about the unusual styling of this gaming beast which sits on a plinth and is kicked up at the rear to give it a streamlined attitude. We cover this in our video so click the button, have a watch and all will be revealed.

AMD and NVIDIA GPU Vive VR Performance in Raw Data
     Sun, Aug 07 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Both AMD and NVIDIA have had a lot to say about "VR" for a while now. VR is far from mainstream, but we are now seeing some games that are tremendously compelling to play, putting you in middle of the action. Raw Data is one of those, and it is also extremely GPU intensive. How do the newest GPUs stack up when it comes to Raw Data performance?

MSI Radeon RX 480 GAMING X review
     Sat, Aug 06 2016 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Join us as we review the MSI Radeon RX 480 GAMING X, we test the model fitted with 8GB graphics memory (there is a 4GB model as well). This TwinFrozr VI cooled mainstream graphics card series will allow you to play your games in both the Full HD 1080P range as well as gaming in WQHD (2560x1440) range. And all that at a rather reasonable price of roughly 269 USD.

GP102 Pascal GPU
     Sat, Aug 06 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a surprise to nearly everyone, on July 21st NVIDIA announced the existence of the new Titan X graphics cards, which are based on the brand new GP102 Pascal GPU. Though it shares a name, for some unexplained reason, with the Maxwell-based Titan X graphics card launched in March of 2015, this is card is a significant performance upgrade. Using the largest consumer-facing Pascal GPU to date (with only the GP100 used in the Tesla P100 exceeding it), the new Titan X is going to be a very expensive, and very fast gaming card.

NVIDIA TITAN X 12GB graphics card.
     Fri, Aug 05 2016 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phenomenally expensive, ludicrously powerful and able to provide eye-searing performance, NVIDIA's Pascal GP102-based TITAN X is here. Is it the real deal or simply a money grab?

PowerColor RED DEVIL RX 480 Review
     Fri, Aug 05 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DEVIL series has been a permanent and successful fixture for PowerColor, representing the very finest in what a graphics card can offer. For those with a decidedly dark side, the RED DEVIL RX 480 seeks to appease the inner demon – boasting a custom design with triple fan configuration and two-mode factory overclock; providing gamers with a silent choice or outright performance.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming - The Best VR Graphics Card?

GIGABYTE has a fast and VR-focused graphics card with its exciting new GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming. Here's our full review."

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 4GB
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 12:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”As AMD's largest AIB partner, Sapphire has been making custom cards for quite some time now. There is not a lot left to innovate in this space anymore, so just about anything can be a point of difference. As a factory overclocked card, the Nitro+ RX 480 4GB card comes right out of the box with a serious 1306MHz boost clock speed on the Polaris 10 core. What makes this card is the BIOS and thermal work done by the Sapphire team. Whereas the two RX 480 cards I have in the wings would throttle under a heavy load, this card just stays right on point at 1304-1306MHz, allowing it to deliver all it can from a capability standpoint. The memory speed of the 4GB of GDDR5 memory comes in at 1750MHz rather than the 2000MHz seen on the 8GB cards, but the sustained higher clock speed allows it to deliver a higher level of performance.”

Palit GTX 1060 Super JetStream 6 GB
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 12:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit's GTX 1060 Super JetStream is a custom design variant of the GTX 1060 with a triple-slot thermal solution that promises low temperatures and low fan noise. Also, the card is highly overclocked out of the box for a performance advantage over the NVIDIA reference design.

Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 AMP Edition Review @HiTech Legion
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 12:07P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The heart of the Zotac GTX 1060 AMP! Edition is the Nvidia GP106 GPU. What this GPU has done is finally put resolutions that are higher than 1080p into the hands of gamers who can’t afford the highest end graphics cards, but who still want to enjoy high quality visuals are decent framerates."

NVIDIA TITAN X Review: The Pascal Beast Unleashed
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA dropped a bomb a couple of weeks back and shocked almost everyone in the enthusiast community with the surprise announcement of the new, Pascal-based TITAN X. If you missed our original coverage, the story went something like this: NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang lost a bet, and out of the blue went and gave away a few TITAN X cards at a special AI event that was taking place at Stanford University. That may sound a little far-fetched, but the way this launch shook out, it seems somewhat plausible. Regardless, as soon as the announcement was posted, we’re sure many of you had two questions in mind – how fast is it? And what’s the deal with the GP102? Thankfully, we can answer both of those questions and more for you today...

Asus RX 470 Strix Gaming OC Aura RGB 4GB
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today is the second of AMD’s recent graphics card releases. While AMD sampled reference solutions for RX 480, they are relying on partner cards for the RX 470 launch. Today we take a close up look at the Asus RX 470 Strix Gaming which arrives with a custom cooler, RGB lighting and enhanced ‘out of the box’ speeds.

XFX RX 470 RS Black Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The dust has hardly settled and cards still aren’t in stock consistently from the RX 480 launch, but it's already time for AMD to introduce their next card, the RX 470. The RX 470 is based on Polaris 10 GPU like the RX 480 but its GPU has a slightly lower number of stream processors. All in all, where the RX 480 was promoted as a premium VR card, the RX 470 is their HD gaming card. There aren’t going to be reference cards in this model, so today I’m actually going to be taking a look at the XFX RX 470 RS Black Edition. This is XFX’s highest overclocked RX 470 so we should get a good look at the highest possible performance from the RX 470 platform to see how it compares to our reference RX 480 and the GTX 1060.

ASUS Radeon RX 470 STRIX OC 4 GB
     Thu, Aug 04 2016 | 11:44A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD releases their Radeon RX 470, a more cost-efficient, trimmed down version of the RX 480. For review we have the ASUS STRIX, an overclocked custom design, with a completely new dual-slot dual-fan cooler that stops its fans in idle and light load.
