nVidia Driver Charts - 327.23 WHQL Tested @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 1:17P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For manufacturers of graphics cards, it`s not only important to have a highly complex chip, their actual drivers need to be optimized to the last bit. Therefore it`s a small wonder that GPU manufacturers release lots of driver updates during the year, making sure, there are no compatbility issues as well as increasing performance. In theses charts we tested 17 different drivers, and we will keep adding newer versions in future."

Intel Iris Pro Linux Performance Doubles With Driver Upgrades
     Sun, Sep 22 2013 | 9:01A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I ran a System76 Galago UltraPro Preview with some benchmark results and a special article looking at the Intel Iris Pro 5200, the Haswell graphics cores with 128MB of dedicated video memory stacked onto the die itself. Those tests were done remotely but now with having a System76 Galago UltraPro ultrabook review sample in the labs, here are some fresh tests looking at the very latest state of Haswell Iris Pro graphics under Linux. The benchmarks cover the state of Ubuntu 13.04 going through the latest open-source Linux graphics driver code with the yet-to-be-released Mesa 9.3 and the Linux 3.12 kernel."

AMD Catalyst 13.8 Beta Analysis
     Fri, Aug 16 2013 | 4:01P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For some time now review sites, including ours, have been looking at how well graphics cards deliver frames to our displays when gaming. Average and minimum framerates remain an important aspect of results but a card must deliver frames without delay to give us a truly smooth gaming experience. So over the last few months this aspect of performance has been receiving attention from both NVIDIA and AMD. Today AMD deliver what they hope is a beta driver which addresses frame pacing as they call it in certain scenarios."

AMD Framepacing Catalyst 13.8 driver review
     Fri, Aug 16 2013 | 4:00P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We examine the new AMD Catalyst 13.8 Beta driver that should insert a new feature called framepacing. In our recent FCAT benchmarking article from April, we discovered that AMD Crossfire suffers badly from a phenomenon called micro-stuttering. A problem that has been known for years and something both AMD and NVIDIA have had. NVIDIA solved their issue starting with Kepler based graphics cards. However since a new technique called FCAT was introduced, a whole lot of micro-stuttering was exposed for AMD, putting them on severe pressure to release a fix for this. Today is the day that we look at AMDs Catalyst 13.8 Beta frame pacing driver and examine the latest games to see if AMD has made progress.

Catalyst 13.8 Beta includes Frame Pacing
     Thu, Aug 15 2013 | 4:01P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Has stuttering with CrossFire been getting you down? Today may make many AMD CrossFire owners happy. Catalyst 13.8 Beta includes Frame Pacing technology to create a more fluid CrossFire experience. At least up to 2560x1600 resolution, for now. Does it really do the job? We investigate this and tell you what the gameplay experience is like.

Removing and Wiping Drivers Guide
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 8:21A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you open Driver Fusion you will be greeted by the `Driver Inspection` page, which lists the different drivers you may want it to scan for. Just click on the items in the list in order to select them, and clicking on multiple items will select those multiple items. Pressing the `Analyze` button will have the program start searching for what remains of the drivers you told it to look for, and what it finds will be listed for you to inspect. It finds files, folders, and registry entries, each of which you can choose to leave on your computer by clicking the appropriate checkbox on the side of the list. It may be a good idea to check this list before pressing the `Delete` button because it may find something you do not want deleted, such as files that have been extracted for when you install new drivers. You can see I have unchecked the C:\NVIDIA directory in the screenshot, and I did so specifically for that reason."

Intel Linux OpenGL Driver Leading Over Apple OS X

Posted by: STAFF
In revisiting the OpenGL graphics and gaming performance for an older Intel Core i5 Sandy Bridge Apple system, the Ubuntu 13.04 performance with Intel`s open-source graphics driver is now easily surpassing Apple`s OpenGL driver found in OS X 10.8.3."

Gallium3D Continues Improving OpenGL For Older Radeon GPUs
     Mon, May 27 2013 | 2:09P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Curious to see how the performance of the open-source ATI/AMD Linux graphics driver is evolving for aging hardware, a new round of OpenGL benchmarks were carried out on the once-popular ATI Radeon HD 4870 RV770 graphics card. The performance was compared between the Mesa 7.11, 8.0, 9.0, 9.1, and 9.2-devel Git releases from an Ubuntu Linux system to see how the performance has changed for this driver in the past two years."

How to Install AMD Drivers Guide
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 1:57P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The installer should begin installing your software. At points, the installer may appear to freeze, but do not be too quick to assume so. Sometimes the installer will freeze for up to five minutes, depending on the speed of your system. The screen may also flash or go blank during the installation of display drivers. This is usual for the installer -- don`t worry, it hasn`t broken your computer, however you might have to rearrange the icons on your desktop afterwards."

Nouveau vs. NVIDIA Linux Comparison Shows Shortcomings
     Thu, May 23 2013 | 4:27P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One week after delivering updated Radeon Gallium3D vs. AMD Catalyst benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux, we have to share this morning similar results for the open-source and reverse-engineered Nouveau Linux graphics driver compared to the proprietary NVIDIA Linux graphics driver. While the Nouveau driver has come a long way and does support the latest Fermi and Kepler GPUs, it`s not without its share of shortcomings. Eleven NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards were used in this latest Phoronix comparison."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
