We have always wondered how exactly does CPU frequency affects performance of our games, we have 3DMark 06 showing us increasing CPU frequency will lead to an increase in the scores. To be sure that CPU frequency does have an impact on the performance of our graphics card, we ran 3 benchmarks in order to find
Just recently, a new beta driver for Nvidia was released, Forceware 186.08. It adds support for ambient occlusion, a new control panel feature for those looking for enhanced 3D gaming realism. Let’s see if there is any performance increase vs the Forceware 185.85.
We paid a visit to the EVGA hideout at Grand Hyatt Taipei and checked out some of the upcoming boards based on the Intel P55 chipset. Also, we spotted a single PCB GeForce GTX295 card with Hydro Cool water block.
We first gave you a sneak peak of the upcoming N275GTX Lightning card from MSI and now here’s the card and cooler in its full glory before Computex. Read more to find out more.
Today, we received a very strange press release titled “SPARKLE Introduced GeForce GTX 285 Plus Graphics Card With Unapproachable Cooling Solution”. You may check out the press release here yourself. Read on to find out what happen…
GALAXY China today leaked the image and overclocking performance of the GTX295. It is based on the reference design of NVIDIA. The new single PCB GTX 295 can be overclocked to 675MHz core, 1455MHz shader and 2200MHz memory from the default 576/1242/2016MHz. The 3DMARK Vantage scored over 20K under Performance settings. The cooling performance and noise levels has
Exclusively for Manli, the Accelero L6 is a multi-compatible VGA cooler designed by ARCTIC COOLING. The 92mm PWM fan produces high airflow at lower fan speed together with an optimised heatsink and pre-applied thermal compound MX-2. The noise level can be reduced to only 0.4 Sone. It will be used on Manli 9800GT 512MB / 1GB
While a considerable bunch might be waiting for a previously mentioned S20 netbooks. Lenovo made another aggresive move with its its newest netbook – S12. The S12 will be a strong contender as it comes with the option of discrete graphics with Nvidia’s Ion processor.
GALAXY unveils their Fan-Card design concept today specially for the GPU-Party GTX200 series graphics cards. Each fan-card is made up of 3 fans and takes up a PCI/PCIE slot. The card is separated from the cooler itself to avoid PCB bending. Check out more details next page.
It seems that MSI has something interesting up their sleeves to showcase over at Computex but nevertheless we will bring you an early sneak peek at their upcoming N275GTX Lightning card. No clocks are revealed at this point of time yet. The cooler remains a mystery now but you can catch a glimpse of the cooler on
GALAXY has once again released a new GTS250 into its line-up. This self-designed GTS250 adopts a 5 phase power supply with a GALAXY own-design new 3D style cooler which is touted to cool up to 5 degrees cooler. It also sports Dual BIOS, PWM fan etc, native HDMI output. The usage of high speed 0.8ns GDDR3
Nvidia is planning to launch their single PCB, dual GPU GeForce GTX 295 card somewhere in mid May although the official launch date hasn’t been firmed up yet. The card is based on a new P658 PCB which is 11″ long and takes up 2 slots with a new cooler. The core clock remains unchanged
Recently, DigiTimes reported that TSMC and UMC are making the 40nm GT218, GT216, GT215 and GT214 chips in late Q2. Now, VR-Zone has learned that Nvidia is preparing GeForce GT 240M and GeForce G210M for launch somewhere between May-June. However, there is still no sign of 40nm desktop parts yet but only the 40nm mobile parts. GeForce GT

GALAXY has launched GeForce GTX275 OverClocked /w Digital PWM card that is clocked at 650MHz core, 1475MHz shader and 1200MHz memory. It has 240 stream processors same as GTX285 and 896MB of 0.8ns GDDR3 memory across a 448-bit wide memory bus. Find out why this card is different from the rest…
(Impress) Nvidia’s public event in Akiba featured the ION, which combines the Atom and Geforce 9400M graphics platform. The public experienced a variety of events which includes Nvidia’s 3D steroscopic system. More after the jump.
Recently, Galaxy released a nice Low Power, Low Profile 9600GT card and now they are continuing the green trend by rolling out a low power 9800GT card. There are 2 versions, 1GB and 512MB and best of all, they don’t need extra 6-pin power connector. Read on….
Bounce Boing Voyage, a “jumpaliciously fun” 3D classic game, will be the first motion control supported game on N-Gage. The current version does not yet have the motion control, but an updated version that is expected to be available in spring, should support this feature.
Nvidia is bringing out a new MCP89E chipset that will support DDR3 memories natively. It share some similarities with the MCP79 chipset supporting Intel mobile processors for Centrino 2 platform. While MCP79 supports 2Gb DDR2/3 devices, MPC89E is able to support 4 Gb DDR3 device. However, MCP89E supports only 8 PCIe lanes instead of 20 on MCP79. Read more…
