NVIDIA GeForce 347.52 Performance Analysis
     Sun, Feb 15 2015 | 3:00A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia are well known for an extremely fast turnaround time for new drivers, even WHQL-certified drivers. Game Day drivers – GeForce 347.52, the drivers we're focusing on, among them – tend to be issued on the day of every major game release. AMD by contrast tend to rely on progressive beta candidates before rolling in changes to a major update later in the month. By working closely with game developers Nvidia tend to have access to game release candidates early on, allowing their driver team some lead time prior to release to smooth out any problems.

AMD Catalyst Linux OpenGL Driver Now Faster Than Windows
     Fri, Jan 30 2015 | 4:03P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this week I showed benchmarks of AMD's incredible year for their open-source Linux driver and how the open-source Radeon Gallium3D driver moved closer to performance parity with Catalyst. One of the lingering questions though is how does the Catalyst 14.12 Omega Linux driver from December compare to the latest Catalyst Windows driver? Here's some benchmarks looking at the latest open and closed-source drivers on Linux compared to the latest Catalyst Windows release."

AMD Catalyst Omega 14.12 Driver Performance
     Mon, Jan 05 2015 | 9:02A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD worked on the Catalyst Omega Driver (Catalyst 14.12) that was released earlier this week for nearly six months. These new drivers bring new features, a ton of bug fixes and of course the usual performance and quality improvements that gamers expect from each new driver release. AMD put so much time and effort into these new special edition drivers that they wanted to name this something different to help them stand out from the crowd. We figured the least we could do is take a look at the performance of the the new Catalyst Omega driver versus that of the previous non-beta driver release, which would be Catalyst 14.9 on our Radeon R9 290 Crossfire setup.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and Wireless Controller Hands-On Preview
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 4:02P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA just officially announced the SHIELD tablet (powered by their Tegra K1 SoC) and SHIELD wireless controller. As the SHIELD branding implies, the new SHIELD tablet and wireless controller builds upon the previously-released, Android-based SHIELD portable to bring a true gaming-oriented tablet to consumers. In some ways, the SHIELD tablet and wireless controller are somewhat of mashup of the SHIELD portable and the Tegra Note 7, but featuring updated technology and better build materials. You could think of the SHIELD tablet and wireless controller as an upgraded SHIELD portable gaming device, with the screen de-coupled from the controller. The device features the aforementioned NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC, paired to 2GB of RAM and an 8”, full-HD IPS display, with a native resolution of 1920x1200...

MSI Afterburner 4.1.0
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 1:18A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was quite a bit of work to make a xmas release date, but the Guru3D team finished and polished up MSI Afterburner. This new iteration of the Overclock software (compatible with both AMD Radeon and Nvidia GeForce graphics cards) has had a complete overhaul in terms of design and looks. MSI Afterburner is ultimate graphics card utility, co-developed by MSI and RivaTuner teams. Also with Christmas in sight, starting Wednesday until the last day of the year Guru3D.com will have a competition each and every day with some kick-ass prizes if I may say. But for now, here is a what we have been working on hard behind the scenes.

Catalyst Omega - A Closer Look
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 1:18P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The name - Catalyst Omega – immediately underscores the importance of the update in a way that a simple number cannot. Whilst ‘Catalyst 14.9.3 beta candidate 3’ sends gamers to sleep (unless it contains a critical fix for their game of the month) Omega turns heads and should have even the mainstream user taking note. Of course, that also means that the new driver package needs to be the most stable released, and AMD are hoping that their crowdsourced priority list for bug fixes will have nailed down major problems before they occur.

Nvidia G-SYNC: A New gaming experience
     Fri, Dec 26 2014 | 4:02P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia G-SYNC technology is something that is hard to put into words but if you try it you will understand it and it will be tough to game without it. We have tested it with a ASUS SWIFT PG278Q display and come away extremely impressed. Read the article to understand why.

NVIDIA's driver
     Tue, Dec 23 2014 | 4:03P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It is clear that AMD has put a lot of effort into the Catalyst Omega driver and it is equally clear that they wanted and needed the word to get out about it. As I mentioned on the first page, NVIDIA is received as being the company with the better driver and feature support for GeForce customers and AMD has always fallen behind. By increasing the company's emphasis on software (with a new CEO and management structure) the Catalyst team is hoping to finally get the resources necessary to turn that around. This first "special edition" driver is an incredible first step and definitely makes the case that AMD is serious about Catalyst and how the company is perceived by the community."

Catalyst 14.12 Omega Performance Analysis
     Tue, Dec 23 2014 | 4:02P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every two or so years, AMD rolls out a year-end Catalyst driver update, which steps up not just performance, and splats bugs, but also expands the software feature-set. The new Catalyst 14.12 Omega is part of AMD's effort to catch up with NVIDIA's latest software features, and get ahead with some.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
