AMD Vega GPU Architecture Details Revealed
     Thu, Jan 05 2017 | 12:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There were four main points that AMD wanted to drive home in our initial briefings on Vega, its next-genration GPU technology. First, is that Vega has the most scalable GPU memory architecture built to date. It also has a new geometry pipeline, tuned for more performance and higher efficiency, a new Compute Unit design, and a revamped pixel engine. All told, Vega should offer significant improvements in terms of performance and efficiency when products based on the architecture begin shipping in the not too distant future...

Vega GPU
     Thu, Jan 05 2017 | 12:10P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let’s be clear: today does not mark the release of the Vega GPU or products based on Vega. In reality, we don’t even know enough to make highly educated guesses about the performance without more details on the specific implementations. That being said, the information released by AMD today is interesting and shows that Vega will be much more than simply an increase in shader count over Polaris. It reminds me a lot of the build to the Fiji GPU release, when the information and speculation about how HBM would affect power consumption, form factor and performance flourished. What we can hope for, and what AMD’s goal needs to be, is a cleaner and more consistent product release than how the Fury X turned out.

AMD Radeon Pro WX Series Workstation Graphics
     Wed, Jan 04 2017 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon Pro WX series will initially consist of three cards, the high-end Radeon Pro WX 7100, the Radeon Pro WX 5100, and the Radeon Pro WX 4100. The WX 7100 and WX 5100 feature the Polaris 10 GPU, but with a different number of stream processors enabled, while the Radeon Pro WX 4100 is powered by the smaller Polaris 11 GPU. We’ve got the entier Radeon Pro WX series in house for testing, and have the results laid out for you on the pages ahead...

KFA2 GeForce GTX 1080 HOF 8GB Video Card Review
     Sat, Dec 24 2016 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GeForce GTX 1080 HOF card sports a unique white/silver appearance in order to be fitted inside high-end gaming setups with a transparent side panel. It is equipped with a massive three slot cooling system which does integrate one back plate, one frontal plate, a big heatsink with no less than five heatpipes but also three 90mm silent fans. The back area of the PCB houses a row of blue LEDs which do stay on at all times, while the Hall of Fame logo area does come with RGB LED lighting, which is fully customizable thanks to the Xtreme Tuner Plus utility. 1080 HOF is also pre-overclocked from the factory and performs well in most games at 4K resolutions."

MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8G
     Thu, Dec 22 2016 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”When you look at the work MSI has done over the past several years to put the MSI Gaming brand out into the market, it is interesting to see that work bare fruit. Looking at the performance curve of the RX 480 Gaming X 8G, I found that the card does what is expected of it and more. A custom PCB using an all-digital VRM built around MSI's Military Class IV companents allow the card to run more efficiently while delivering a high level of performance for the installed hardware. The RX 480 Gaming X 8G is a factory overclocked video card. No surprises there! As a factory overclocked card, it is equipped with a boosted clock speed that is not the highest available on the market. That being said, it also retains that clock speed under load without throttling due to a thermal or current induced spike. This was a problem I saw while working with the Red Devil RX 480 that I have not seen on either of the MSI RX series cards I have tested.”

ZOTAC GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition Graphic Card Review
     Thu, Dec 22 2016 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the Zotac GTX 1050 Ti OC edition- a graphic card with a much smaller footprint and a couple of more tricks up its sleeve. What I like in low-cost solutions is that I get to know what a company can provide with a particular cost. It’s easier to squeeze in all-copper heatpipes and flat heatbase with a factory overclock on mid to high-end cards. But who and how much they can put in a card of a lower cost?? G1 Gaming series did that. So let’s check out what Zotac has to offer.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 PCI-Express Scaling
     Mon, Dec 19 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article, we investigate how performance of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 is affected when running on constrained PCI-Express bus widths such as x8 or x4. We also test all PCIe speed settings, 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0. One additional test checks how much performance is lost when using the chipset's PCIe x4 slot.

XFX RX 480 XXX GTR
     Sun, Dec 18 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”From a performance standpoint, the XFX RX 480 XXX GTR performs where its clock speeds dictate when comparing to the other Polaris GPUs I have tested. That puts the performance window right around the R9 390 and in some cases besting the GTX 1060. So what does that equate to in terms of FPS performance? It gets you between 45 and 90 FPS at a resolution of 1920x1080, depending on the game played. Cranking up the resolution to 2560x1440, the FPS levels drop a bit, but essentially you can play all the games in my comparison at up to 2560x1440 and really enjoy the experience. Overclocking helps improve the FPS levels delivered if you spend the time to tune the performance of the card. XFX did its homework and built this card to maintain the core clock speeds set in the card's BIOS so you do not see performance drops as the card heats up and starts pulling a more significant bit of power from the wall. By using the company's True Clock technology — a hardware clock speed optimizer instead of a software optimizer — you get the performance you pay for at all times. XFX's all-digital power supply circuitry with ultra low-noise inductors cooled by the all-new heat pipe equipped cooling solution definitely help drive the performance and stability of this card. Overclocking was not as robust as the other RX 480 cards I have looked at, but this card does hold its own with a better-than-average overclock.”

KFA² GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC
     Sun, Dec 18 2016 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nach den ganzen Topmodellen der neuen Grafikkarten Serie wollen wir auch dieses Jahr auch die günstigeren Modelle etwas genauer angesehen. Immerhin bieten die Hersteller für jedes Budget etwas Passendes an. Beim AMD sind es die Einsteiger-Grafikkarten RX 460, basierend auf der Polaris Architektur. Bei nVidia sind es die Modelle GTX 1050 und 1050Ti, die über den kleineren Pascal GP107 Chip verfügen. Aus dieser Serie haben wir uns das Sample von KFA² etwas genauer angesehen, die KFA² GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC mit 4GB Speicher. Auch diese Karte wurde auf den FullHD Bereich optimiert und soll als günstiges Einsteigermodell am Markt fungieren. Das Ziel ist natürlich AMD das Leben schwer zu machen.
