MSI Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition Review
     Sun, Sep 27 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has made a bold move by giving the company’s Z170 XPower motherboard a Titanium theme. What exactly does that mean? Well firstly the motherboard features a unique metallic styling which is sure to turn heads. And then there’s the application of a sixteen phase power delivery system that makes use of Titanium chokes. Titanium typically sees use in high-performance, weight- and temperature-critical applications such as aircraft structures and jet engine components. Can MSI’s Z170A XPower Gaming Titanium Edition live up to the metal’s high-performance nature?

ASUS R9 Fury STRIX graphics
     Sat, Sep 26 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS R9 Fury STRIX represents the pinnacle of AMD GPU design. From performance, to price, to its feature set, this Fury seems to have it all.

XFX R9 390X
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 12:47P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The XFX R9 390X does what a next generation card should do. It outperforms the previous generation when it comes to the FPS performance delivered in each of the tests run for this review. Thanks to the improvement in core clock and memory speed over last year's R9 290X, you get a boost in performance that in several cases delivers stock performance between the GTX 970 and GTX 980. It puts the performance versus price of the R9 390X in an odd position of competing price wise with the GTX 980, but competing performance wise in most cases with the GTX 970 that retails for about $80 less than an R9 390X. If you push price to the side you get good playable performance at 2560 x 1440 across the entire test suite.”

MSI Radeon R9 380 Gaming 2G Review
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 12:47P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As expected many of our readers are gamers and professionals who are always looking for new graphics cards to equip their systems with. Obviously not everyone's willing to spend a large sum of cash for a graphics card but luckily nowadays people don't really have to since there are numerous budget-friendly models available in the market by both NVIDIA and AMD that do surprisingly well in games and professional applications alike. Our main focus recently has been on NVIDIA cards since that's what most of you have requested but since we want to be objective and also since AMD has launched quite a few models inside 2015 and we need to have both companies in our charts we decided to take a look at one. So today with us we have one of the latest AMD models launched by MSI and more specifically the Radeon R9 380 Gaming 2G.

AMD Radeon R9 Nano CrossFire
     Thu, Sep 24 2015 | 12:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we will test two Radeon R9 Nanos in a CrossFire setup, and we also include data for a R9 Nano paired with a Fury X, a combination that's possible on AMD, because both cards use the same GPU.

GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs GeForce GTX 780 Ti - Should I upgrade?
     Thu, Sep 24 2015 | 11:51A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A gamer simply can't have enough graphics power in his rig, which makes the question whether to upgrade or not omnipresent. To show you whether it makes sense to upgrade from one generation to another we have this series of articles ready for you, where will compare graphics cards from different generations. Today we're going to investigate if upgrading from a NVIDIA GTX 780 Ti to a GTX 980 Ti makes sense or not.

Sapphire Radeon R9 Nano Review
     Wed, Sep 23 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have the third flagship class graphics card up for review today, and if you have had your head in the sand for about two months, this one is a little different. Previously we tested the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X, the Fury and now the Nano. We didn’t really like the Fury X, though we did have a fault with it, and it has been replaced, we will follow the review up with a second part. We then reviewed the Fury, and we liked it, it seemed a lot more focused and graphics card like. Now we have the Nano, and it is nothing like it!"

he Best, Most Efficient Graphics Cards For 1080p Linux Gamers
     Wed, Sep 23 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week I posted a graphics card comparison using the open-source drivers and looking at the best value and power efficiency. In today's article is a larger range of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards being tested under a variety of modern Linux OpenGL games/demos while using the proprietary AMD/NVIDIA Linux graphics drivers to see how not only the raw performance compares but also the performance-per-Watt, overall power consumption, and performance-per-dollar metrics."

Sapphire R9 380 Nitro 4GB Review
     Tue, Sep 22 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many, the R9 Fury X and GTX980Ti are fantasy solutions – dream cards most of us will never be able to afford. What if you only have £200 to spend and need a new graphics card that can handle resolutions up to 1440p? Today we look at the latest Sapphire R9 380 Nitro which is priced to go head to head against Nvidia’s GTX960.

GTX 950 SLI Testing @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Sep 21 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So yeah I know, it’s starting to look a little like all we cover around here are GTX 950’s and R7 370’s. Don’t worry today is the last time. Today I’m going to follow up the R7 370 Crossfire article and see how good our two GTX 950’s perform when paired up in SLI. As with all of our Crossfire and SLI articles, this is not a review as I have already tested and reviewed both cards individually. Today is just a quick look at their performance and to find out if the 950’s in SLI are a better value than any of the more expensive cards individually. Have a great weekend everyone!

Asus R9 390X STRIX DC3 OC 8GB Review
     Mon, Sep 21 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD released the R9 390X GPU three months ago and the custom-cooled board partner offerings are available in strength. Today we are taking a look at Asus’ STRIX DC3 OC version of the R9 390X which utilises the company’s triple-fan DirectCU III cooler and an automated production process.

Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980Ti 6GB Graphics Card Review
     Sun, Sep 20 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 980Ti has been around for a few months now and in that time, manufacturers have had the chance to not only design and create their own versions but also perfect the product. Gigabyte is one of the many manufacturers that have given the 980Ti the magic treatment with a revamped version of the G1 Gaming that we previously had a glimpse of at Computex 2015. It definitely looks the part, but we didn’t know the specification apart from a memory clock of 7010MHz and that it would have a similar cooling capacity of previous G1 Gaming cards of 600W.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 & 970 Maxwell GPU Reviews
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA has lifted the embargo on its latest flagship graphics cards based on its Maxwell architecture, the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970. The two cards are somewhat similar and share the same 4GB frame buffer and GM204 GPU, but the GTX 970’s GPU is clocked a bit lower and features fewer active SMs and CUDA cores. The GeForce GTX 980’s GM204 GPU has all of its functional blocks enabled and is the full implementation of the chip, however.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 & GTX 980 Review
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year's GeForce 700 series pushed Kepler to its limits. With such a strong showing, Maxwell's first appearance had us excited for higher-end cards and today we finally have them: the $329 GTX 970 will try to carve a place out for itself between the R9 280X and 290, while the $549 GTX 980 is positioned against the R9 290X.

HIS R7 360 iCooler OC 2GB Video Card Review
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The R7 360 OC iCooler video card from HIS is designed with a custom cooling system in order to stay cool at all times, but the GPU is not too potent since we have the same solution we have found with the previous AMD Radeon R7 260 but with higher clocks from the box and 2GB of memory buffer instead of 1GB on a 128-bit memory bus. The manufacturer has boosted a bit the GPU clock since we are dealing with an “OC” card; we are saying a bit because the boost is only by 20MHz and the card is capable of much more as we have seen from our overclocking tests.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900 Series
     Fri, Sep 18 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 900 series graphics cards will be launching this week and we wanted to give you a preview of what to expect from NVIDIA’s latest graphics cards. Both the GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 will be based off NVIDIA’s GM204 silicon. We have already seen the Maxwell architecture on NVIDIA’s entry-level GM107 based cards, the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and GeForce GTX 750. Now it is time for the performance segment cards, which will include the GTX 980 and GTX 970 to start with the GTX 960 to come later down the line. We have compiled all of the information we know about both cards in this article. We will keep this article updated as more information comes available."
