RX 470 Crossfire Testing @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 16 2016 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Returning readers will know that seeing two similar cards pop up means just one thing… Crossfire benchmarking! After I finished up my review of the Sapphire RX 470, I stayed up all night benchmarking the two cards together. I wanted to take a look and find out if picking up two RX 470’s would be better than a single GTX 1070, something that falls into the same price range. In addition, I was curious if we would just see an improvement in the 1080p resolution that these cards were designed for or if maybe they would be more viable for 1440p as well when paired up. As always with our SLI and Crossfire testing. I skip all of the normal review stuff and frankly don’t write to much, leaving you guys with a whole pile of graphs and performance numbers to sort through. So enjoy!

Gainward GTX 1070 Phoenix GS Review
     Tue, Aug 16 2016 | 2:55P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So, in spotlight today is the GTX 1070 by way of the Phoenix Golden Sample. This new graphics card utilises a distinct livery which should set it apart from other offerings out there on the market. The red and gold theme allows this card to stand out from the crowd while the twin-cooler promises to deliver low-noise and low-temperatures. Gainward has also applied a 9% factory overclock to the GPU in the bid to nudge the performance up, above the competition.

NVIDIA Titan X Pascal 12 GB
     Tue, Aug 16 2016 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA released their new Pascal based Titan X earlier this week. It is based on a brand-new GP102 graphics processor, which is even more power efficient than the one in GTX 1080. In our review of this $1200 card, we take a closer look at whether there is a way to justify the purchase somehow.

ASUS Radeon RX 460 STRIX OC 4 GB
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Radeon RX 460 promises entry-level gaming for the masses, with pricing starting at $109. We are reviewing the ASUS RX 460 STRIX OC, which comes with 4 GB instead of 2 GB and an additional 6-pin power connector, at at $140 price point.

AMD Radeon RX 460 Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Radeon RX 460 is a Polaris 11 part that starts at only $109. Products based on Polaris 11 will also be turning up in ultra-portable devices as the power draw is expected to be very low. On the desktop, AMD hopes to capture the entry level eSports market by providing acceptable 1080p performance in titles such as CS:GO, Dota 2, League of Legends, Overwatch and Rocket League.

AMD Radeon RX 460 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week the AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB graphics card debuted at $179 to help bring AMD’s new Polaris GPU technology down to lower price points. The AMD Radeon RX 480 video card runs $199 for the 4GB model and $249 for the 8GB model, so it was good to see what AMD had to offer mainstream gamers. If $179 is still too much to justify spending on a graphics card for your system we have great news for you. AMD is releasing the Radeon RX 460 today and pricing starts at just $109 for 2GB models. Read on to see how the XFX Radeon RX 460 4GB Double Dissipation Graphics Card performs!

ASUS STRIX GAMING GTX 1070 OC Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 3:56P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aftermarket GTX 1070 models typically start around the £380 mark which is a substantial saving compared to the GTX 1080. Unfortunately, NVIDIA’s premium solutions remain extremely expensive and recent price rises in the UK haven’t helped matters. As a result, many enthusiasts are unable to afford the GTX 1080 and even if they can, struggle to justify a £600+ investment. This is especially the case when rumours circulate regarding the GTX 1080Ti being prepared and the possible performance gains. Saying that, it’s highly unlikely NVIDIA will unveil a faster graphics card within a similar price bracket judging by the Titan X’s recent launch. Evidently, the GTX 1070 is a more sensible option unless you’re using a 4K display.

Gigabyte RX 460 Windforce OC 2GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 3:31P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some of you may have missed it but Monday the RX 460 officially launched. There wasn’t as much of a fuss about it because the RX 470 was taking most of the attention, but the RX 460 is also Polaris based. It is the first card on the Polaris 11 architecture where the RX 470 and RX 480 are on the Polaris 10. AMD is marketing the RX 460 as their e-sports card where the RX 470 was an HD card and the RX 480 was VR. This might be a little confusing, but the general idea is the RX 460 can’t handle everything at 1080p, but it is designed to work well with the popular e-sports titles like Dota 2 and League of Legends. So today I'm going to take a look at the Gigabyte RX 460 that AMD and Gigabyte sent over and then put it through our normal benchmark suite and see how it performs. That will round off a full week of AMD coverage here on LanOC as well!

AMD & NVIDIA GPU VR Performance in Trials on Tatooine

Posted by: STAFF
Anyone that buys into an HTC Vive headset will almost assuredly want to wield a lightsaber...for free. This short VR demo built by Lucasfilm's ILMxLAB aims to put you in a photo-realistic Star Wars environment. Trials on Tatooine is not easy going on all GPUs though and not all will provide a premium VR experience.

While performing our preliminary benchmarking work for the Radeon RX 460 recently, we discovered an issue with high DPC latency on our graphics testbed system that had a significant negative impact on our test results for the Radeon RX 470. We've published an explanation of that high DPC latency's effects.

Sapphire Nitro+ RX 470 OC Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not so long ago, Sapphire unveiled the Nitro+ RX 480 OC graphics card which allowed AMD’s flagship Polaris 10 core to perform to its maximum potential. This is due to the company’s exceptional cooling solution which managed to tame the GPU’s thermal loads and in turn, ensured the boost clock didn’t plummet in a wide range of demanding games. Unfortunately, AMD’s relatively simplistic reference cooling design doesn’t contain any heat-pipes and relies on a single aluminium heatsink with a copper base. This was inadequate for overclocking and after speaking to AMD, they acknowledged it could have been engineered better. While the RX 480 offers outstanding value for money and targets the mainstream demographic, the price point might still be too high for certain consumers on a tight budget or those considering PC gaming for the first time. Thankfully, the RX 470 can dispel those concerns and is a slightly scaled back version of the RX 480. This particular configuration is capable of up to 4.9 TFLOP/s peak performance, has 32 compute units, 2048 stream processors all within a very respectable 150-watt TDP on models sporting an 8-pin connector.
