Point of View and its buddies at TGT Tuning launched a new GeForce GT 640 graphics card with their "Ultra Charged" clock-profile, which is basically 12.5 percent overclocked speeds over NVIDIA reference. The clock speeds and TGT branding come at a price.
With the Comic-Con in full swing in downtown San Diego, the time has come for Epic Games to unveil the first title based on the fourth generation of its ultra-successful Unreal Engine. To us, the announced title looks like something produced by Tim Burton. Fortnite only goes to show just how flexible UE4 is.
The sped-up HD 7970 GHz edition came out last month to knock down the GTX 680 from the gaming performance throne. Now, and before another top level announcement, the rest of the high end line up received price adjustments to further attack Nvidia gamers' holdout.
Late Thursday, NVIDIA deactivated its user forums (forums.nvidia.com) on the company website, citing security reasons. According to the company, a security breach was discovered. Critical user data may have been compromised.
When the news ain't good, the best thing you can do is to divide the bad news into multiple segments, and that's exactly what AMD did with its pre-announce of weaker-than-expected quarterly results.
Everyone already knew back in early May that the Nvidia Kepler GK104 based GTX 670 is a serious contender for the price-performance crown. We re-visit that conclusion again with ASUS's factory overclocked GTX 670 fitted with their DirectCU II heatpipe cooler and run a few tests with the latest 304.79 drivers.
Without much fuss, ASUS slipped out a revision of its Radeon HD 7950 DirectCU II graphics card. The revision breaks away from the common board design between the HD 7950 and HD 7970 DirectCU II models, and uses newer, compact PCB and cooler. The revision could ready ASUS for future price cuts of the GPU.
Even though summer is in the full swing, it's not that companies are taking their time off. According to our sources, AMD is gearing up to launch the dual-GPU card, illusive Radeon HD 7990 in the second half of July.
ASUS unveiled pictures of its Radeon HD 7850 DirectCU II Dragon Edition graphics card. The new SKU is designed for specific markets, and is expected to be priced on par with reference clock speed models, perhaps even replacing the HD 7850 DirectCU II. Factory overclocked speeds, and a revamped DirectCU II cooler give it the
Although it was Sapphire, which charmed visitors of its Computex booth with its single-slot, low-profile Radeon HD 7750 graphics card, PowerColor beat it to the punch by taking such a design to its logical conclusion, the market. PowerColor's HD 7750 LP is fully loaded, despite its puny size.
Sapphire announced the Radeon HD 7870 FleX with Dual-X graphics card. It features a reconfigured display output logic, which supports up to three DVI monitors, without needing active DP-DVI adapters. The card also features the company's Dual-X cooling solution.
Even prior to its name unveiling last week – or official announcement later in the year – Intel's Xeon Phi shook the supercomputer world with supposedly snatching some of the upcoming large projects mostly away from Nvidia Tesla. What about its performance?
ASUS is reportedly working on its second Republic of Gamers (ROG) dual-GPU graphics card of the season, after the ROG MARS 3. Branded under the ARES name, the card will be a CrossFire-on-a-stick solution with two Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition "Pitcairn XT" GPUs. ASUS probably avoided a pair of "Tahiti XT2" chips to prevent
The introduction of Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition may have distrurbed the product lineups of some of AMD's bigger add-in board (AIB) partners, especially those with recently-launched or upcoming factory-overclocked HD 7970 (standard), but Club 3D is unfazed. The company is perhaps the industry's first with a HD 7970 GHz Edition SKU.
We knew from way back in December 2011, that Sapphire is working on custom-design Radeon HD 7970 graphics card models with some crazy factory-overclocked speeds. The company today reiterated that it's working on some of those models, but that the SKU is changed from HD 7970 to HD 7970 GHz Edition. A little more than
Today's review will focus on how the official increased clock frequencies of the 7970 GHz edition aka Tahiti XT2 – 1050MHz on the core (13.5% increase from 925MHz) and 1500MHz on the memory (9% increase from 1375MHz), help peg back or increase the performance delta over Nvidia's GTX 680 Kepler. We run a plethora of benchmarks on
AMD launched the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition graphics card. In its crosshairs is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680, and retaking the single-GPU performance crown. The new chip, apart from a fully-configured ASIC, features ≥1000 MHz GPU clock speed.
NVIDIA released a patch that enables PCI-Express Gen 3.0 interface mode for GeForce Kepler-based graphics cards, such as the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 670, on Intel's Sandy Bridge-E HEDT (X79) platform. The patch is released on a use-at-your-own-risk basis, with adequate cautions and disclaimers to end users.
Without any doubt, GDDR5 memory is prevalent high-speed memory of today. The standard attracted a lot of companies and powers systems from graphics cards to networking switches, from cars to rockets and even lunar landers. Thus, the big question remains, when the successor is going to arrive?
MSI launched its fastest custom-design GeForce GTX 680 graphics card, the N680GTX Lightning. The card is armed with unlocked digital power VRM, TwinFrozr IV cooling solution, factory-overclocked frequencies, in a package that doesn't need more than two expansion card slots in your system.
