Alienware 13 R3 Review: OLED, GeForce 10 Pop And Performance
     Wed, Nov 23 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's Alienware gaming PC division recently announced a refresh of their 13, 15 and 17 notebook product lines, starting with the introduction of their 15 and 17 inch models and more recently unchaining their smaller but just as scrappy 13-inch beast. However, one of Alienware's new three amigos is a bit more stand-out than the others, perhaps. With the Alienware 13 R3 (marking the 3rd revision), Dell-Alienware has taken what was previously a dual-core only affair and made it quad-core capable. That extra CPU juice under the hood, coupled with a dramatically more powerful GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, should equate to a bodacious increase in gaming performance-per-square inch.

The final AMD card is the WX 7100
     Wed, Nov 23 2016 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The professional card market is a lucrative one. For many years NVIDIA has had a near strangle-hold on it with their Quadro series of cards. Offering features and extended support far beyond that of their regular desktop cards, Quadros became the go-to cards for many professional applications. AMD has not been overlooking this area though and have had a history of professional cards that have also included features and support not seen in the standard desktop arena. AMD has slowly been chipping away at Quadro’s market share and they hope that today’s announcement will help further that particular goal.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Video Card Roundup
     Sun, Nov 20 2016 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has proven itself to be a winner at the $139 price point when we took an in-depth look at the MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4G OC during last months launch. Once you narrow your search down to a specific series you can then start taking a closer look at what cards have higher clock speeds, more overclocking potential, better custom cooling solutions and so on. The problem is that there are a ton of custom card manufacturers with GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards on the market; ASUS, EVGA, MSI, Gigabyte, Zotac, and PNY are just some of the companies making them. We’ve gathered up three partner cards for a little GeForce GTX 1050 Ti roundup for you to help see the differences between some of the cards on the same system.

MSI GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Gaming X Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2016 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 1050 Ti represents Nvidia Pascal’s foray into the lower-cost end of mainstream territory that is currently being fought competitively by AMD with the company’s current-generation RX 460 and RX 470 Polaris GPUs. With a suggested retail price of £139, Nvidia has carved out a price point which sits the GTX 1050 Ti 4GB somewhat unopposed between the RX 460 and RX 470. We test MSI's GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X against 12 AMD and Nvidia graphics cards from this generation and previous one

Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming 4 GB
     Thu, Nov 17 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte's GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming is a highly overclocked custom design variant by the company, featuring a dual-fan cooler that provides excellent temperatures and incredible low noise levels at the same time. During desktop work and media playback the fans even stop completely.

NVIDIA GeForce Experience 3.0 Overview
     Thu, Nov 17 2016 | 10:37A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those of us who are new to PC gaming may have a little bit of difficulty when it comes down to deciding what settings to set our games to. NVIDIA has introduced a program that will help us with just that and the addition of a few other features: the GeForce Experience. With the GeForce Experience 3.0 we will now be able to utilize the potential of our gaming rigs by letting the software automatically change our game settings on more than 300 game titles in accordance to the exact CPU, GPU, and display monitor our system is using. This way we will be given the perfect balance between the quality of graphics and performance....

XFX RX 460 Double Dissipation Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2016 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we turn to XFX to take a detailed look at their RX 460 Double Dissipation. As its name suggests, this graphics card features a dual-cooling fan design with the added benefit of being able to detach these fans for easy maintenance. XFX has applied a small overclock to the GPU, taking the clock speed from 1200MHz to 1220MHz. Will this help to take on NVIDIA’s GTX 1050?

Gigabyte RX 480 G1 Gaming 8GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 16 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After checking out an aftermarket RX 480, the reference RX 480, and both together in Crossfire you might think we were done. But Gigabyte was a little late to the party with their sampling and their RX 480 G1 Gaming with 8GB of vRAM came in while I was on vacation. Add in the RX 460 and GTX 1050 launches and I’m just now getting around to take a look at the card. So today I’m going to take a look at the card and see what it is all about. Then I’m going to run it through our test suite including the recently added Deus Ex tests and see how it compares to the rest of the RX 480 options. This also gives me a good chance to revisit the RX 480 and see if its location in the market has changed at all with the price changes. So get into everything and see what Gigabyte has going on.

NVIDIA's Pascal architecture
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in April I did a video with MSI that looked at all of the gaming notebook lines it built around the GTX 900-series of GPUs. Today we have stepped it up a notch, and again are giving you an overview of MSI's gaming notebook lines that now feature the ultra-powerful GTX 10-series using NVIDIA's Pascal architecture. That includes the GTX 1060, GTX 1070 and GTX 1080.

XFX Radeon RX 470 RS 4GB OC Black Edition Video Card Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 3:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Radeon RX 470 RS 4GB OC Black Edition card from XFX comes with a decent overclock from the factory and thanks to this fact, it traded punches quite a lot of times with the R9 290/R9 390 cards from HIS (which did also feature a mild overclock). This practically means that we are dealing with a solid performer at Full HD resolutions, while for 1440P we would need to lower some of the game details in order to get over 60FPS; in AMD-optimized games though, we could have some surprises, meaning that the RX 470 would perform well even when we do have all game details cranked at max."

Galax GTX 1070 EXOC Sniper
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 2:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The bottom line here is that if you are not one to tune your card for higher performance through overclocking, then you have no reason to worry, as the card performs admirably throughout my testing. During my testing, I found that the noise levels generated by the card were pretty low, even with the fan speeds ramped up to 100%. The 100mm dual-fans used on the EXOC version of Galax's line-up do fairly well keeping the card cool enough at just 71 ºC under load or about 5 degrees Celsius warmer than Galax advertises, but is not a significant issue due to the obvious testing ambient temperatures. To alleviate fears of an overheating 5+2 phase VRM, Galax does use a large aluminum heatsink over the VRM on the all custom PCB with airflow coming through the large dual-heatpipe-equipped heatsink.”

ASUS STRIX Gaming GTX 1080 8GB Review
     Mon, Nov 14 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The STRIX Gaming GTX 1080 8GB is ASUS' latest and greates single GPU graphics card, which comes with a factory OC, that pushes really hard on the new Pascal GP-104 chip. In combination with the vendor's DirectCU III cooler this might be silent yet very powerful solution for gamers wanting to push UHD at high levels of detail. We're certainly curious to find out what this beast can do.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme Review
     Sun, Nov 13 2016 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At this point, we’re sure you’re all aware of the goodness that is NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and the GeForce GTX 10 series that is built around an array of Pascal-based GPUs. If you’re not – shame on you – you’ve been slacking on your tech homework and we order you to check out our coverage of Pascal and the GeForce GTX 10 series, in enthusiast, mainstream, and mobile flavors. Heck, check out this round-up too, while you’re at it. What you’ll find, after you finish your reading assignments, is that NVIDIA’s Pascal-based GPUs are efficient and relatively power friendly, including the monstrous Titan X, so they don’t need insane cooling apparatuses or an unwieldy number of supplemental power feeds. With that said, NVIDIA’s board partners are never ones to leave well enough alone. Case in point, the Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme Edition we’ll be showing you here...

MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC review
     Sat, Nov 12 2016 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI today releases a new GeForce GTX 1070, the Quick Silver OC edition sits in the Gaming series of products. Basically this GeForce GTX 1070 is a Gaming X model in a different jacket. This GTX 1070 has been fitted with Micron GDDR5 memory, as such we'll put tweaking stability to the test with the new BIOS. Next to that we upgraded our software suite and added game benchmarks with Battlefield 1, Deus Ex, Mafia III and Gears of War 4.
