Colorful could have a hard time convincing people they're not getting pranked looking at the industry's very first fanless, passive-cooled GeForce GTX 680 graphics card. The Chinese graphics card and motherboard designer pulled off some very audacious and fascinating designs in the past, but this one takes the cake.
NVIDIA not only disturbed the performance-thru-extreme GPU segments of AMD with the GeForce GTX 670, but also rubbed salt on its wounds with an insultingly compact-yet-efficient PCB design of its reference design board. One of its bigger board partners, ZOTAC, is ready with a custom-design graphics card that keeps in tune with this design
AMD Fusion Developer Summit has just started in Seattle, here are some of the initial news, with more to follow
Computex Taipei might be over already but we still have a couple of stories from there to fill. Here we take a look at some of the Opteron and Trinity APU FM2 motherboards and Radeon 7000 series GPUs, presented to you by the fabulous AMD booth girls.
While the volumes aren't high, most vendors had enough to show at least a sample of GTX680 – and occasionally a GTX690 – on their booths, while AMD gunned for higher clock revisions and more memory.
NVIDIA showed off some of their Tegra 3 tablets, smartphones and Kepler GPUs at their Nangang Computex booth. Why were we so impressed?
Our ever vigilant counterparts at Chinese VR-Zone spotted a rather interesting gaming laptop SKU from MSI filled with AMD hardware – the GX60 is powered by a top of the line Radeon HD 7970M and a Trinity A10-4600M APU. Is it a marriage made in heaven?
Its raining GPUs here at Computex Taipei, and the latest offering revealed by ASUS's Republic of Gamers team after their HD 7970 Matrix is the dual Nvidia Kepler GK104 based MARS III, featuring an unprecedented 8GB of GDDR5 memory and a triple-fan dual slot cooler.
Hot on the heels of their new BigBang MPower line of motherboards, MSI is showing off her overclocking oriented GTX 680 Lightning at their Nangang booth during this year's Computex Taipei.
ASUS latest graphics card in its coveted Republic of Gamers series, is the ROG Matrix 7970, a high-end graphics card with a Radeon HD 7970 on steroids, with enough connectivity to drive 6-display Eyefinity.
ASUS has an enviable amount of engineering potential and resources. Often, the two come together, to create magical PC enthusiast hardware, such as its ROG MARS and ROG ARES series super high-end graphics cards. The next such creation is ZEUS, which is a shocking fusion between a socket LGA2011 motherboard, and a dual-GPU graphics card.
MSI announced a pair of new graphics cards under its GeForce GTX 670 Power Edition lineup. The two combine MSI's in-house PCB design with its Twin Frozr IV cooling solution, and feature triple over-voltage, and an enhanced PWM design.
GELID Solutions launched a variant of its Icy Vision graphics card cooler for AMD Radeon HD 7970 and HD 7950. Called the Icy Vision-A, the cooler is designed keeping in mind the mount-hole spacing, the die-area of the 28 nm "Tahiti" silicon, and the added load-out of memory chips and MOSFETs that come with the
Taiwanese and Chinese vendors are not waiting on AMD to release the Radeon HD 7990, and on this years' Computex Taipei, PowerColor is leading the way with a monstrous 7970X2 with 6GB of memory.
Over the course of Memorial Day holiday weekend, we noticed an interesting product carrying MSI labeling: fifth product based on the GK104 GPU will go by its original name, the GeForce GTX 660.
MSI has well earned a reputation for making quality custom graphics cards. Here for review we have their newest release, the R7850 Power Edition. With its use of quality components and the new Twin Frozr IV cooler, the card should be a significant improvement over the reference HD 7850. We look forward to putting this
Several days ago, Jon Peddie Research released its GPU report for the first quarter of 2012. The report originally claimed that NVIDIA lost around 4.3% of the market, while Intel and AMD grew. Revised release corrected that share loss to 1.5%.
During the Emerging Companies Summit at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, we spoke with several startups and experienced companies, seeing an interesting emerging pattern.
Unconfirmed details have come about pertaining to a supposed GTX-680M mobile graphics solution from NVIDIA launching at next month's Computex 2012 event in Taipei.
During the GTC 2012 opening keynote, NVIDIA announced two Tesla cards, K10 and the K20. While the K10 is effectively a 8GB Tesla-version of the GeForce GTX 690, the K20 brings the monster silicon – 7.1 billion transistors.
