Despite serious changes in the graphics card market, 2011 may be called a year of “cold launches”. It looks like both, AMD and Nvidia, decided to spend their marketing budgets only on expensive products. Therefore, many interesting new graphics cards in the mainstream segment were announced without much excitement surrounding them. Today we will try to make up for lack of attention to one of them – the AMD Radeon HD 6770.
This is the story of the fastest Radeon HD 6950 graphics card that turned out not only faster than its fellow HD 6950 products, but even faster than the top-of-the-line Radeon HD 6970.
Connecting multiple displays to one computer is nothing groundbreaking or new. Military, medical as well as mining industries have long been using a cloud of monitors for their respected mission-crucial tasks. Today we have two approaches to setting up a triple-monitor gaming rig. Let’s learn more about the solutions offered by AMD and Nvidia for this matter.
Today we are going to talk about two non-standard graphics accelerators based on Nvidia GPUs and two standard graphics accelerators on AMD GPUs.
Textures with highest level of detail, complex shaders, surface tessellation, soft shadows with variable penumbra, super-complex antialiasing algorithms – all these things determine the visual appeal and commercial success of a contemporary 3D game. Therefore, we were very anxious to see Crysis 2 blockbuster from Electronic Arts to finally receive DirectX 11 support.
Our today’s review is devoted to a unique graphics card that combines two AMD Barts XT processors designed for mainstream products, but nevertheless demonstrates exceptionally high level of performance.
Smartphones, nettops, notebooks and tablets have taken over our everyday life. But what if you don’t feel like leaving the cozy living-room and would gladly watch a blockbuster Blue-ray movie or play your favorite game for a few hours? The answer is simple: HTPC with a good graphics accelerator inside will do the trick. Let’s check out the new solutions AMD has recently rolled out for this particular market.
Today we are going to discuss three mainstream GeForce GTX 560 graphics cards boasting unique PCB designs, proprietary cooling systems and increased working frequencies. We will also test them in an SLI configuration. Read our review for more details!
Fear. Different marketing strategies and promotion campaigns all over the world bet on happiness, joy, success, wealth and health. But there is one developer, who for the first time puts fear at the top of the food chain. Please meet the new gaming title – F.E.A.R 3!
A new game with the old name. Good old ingredients in a new recipe. Duke Nukem Forever make become another milestone in the development of the genre, or be yet another short-term entertainment. Time will show what its destiny is going to be, but we are really interested to find out how greatly the most anticipated game of the summer 2011 may determine your graphics sub-system upgrade options.
Today we are going to review two graphics cards on Nvidia GPUs that offer a great combination of features alongside with far not the reference design.
We’re testing two custom-made Radeon HD 6970s with 2 gigabytes of graphics memory that have unique coolers, pre-overclocked frequencies and some other just as exciting properties!
Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 is a smart compromise for those who are no longer satisfied with the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, but at the same time are not ready to spend $500 on a GeForce GTX 580. Today we are going to discuss three models of this graphics accelerator from different makers: Asus, Gigabyte and Palit.
Each of us at least once in our lives thought while driving a car or even operating a kitchen appliance: imagine how good it could be if it had more power. Now let’s move to the world of computer electronics: are you happy with your Radeon HD 6970? This is a truly respectful product, but is it powerful enough to deliver you the performance you need? And what if we added a Radeon HD 6990 to that? Read our review to find out!
The new generation of AMD and Nvidia graphics cards is already here, but how well will they withstand the competition from discrete multi-GPU solutions? Today we are going to use a GeForce GTX 580 SLI tandem to answer this question.
DirectX 11 API is already quite a mature piece of software that has been with us for a couple of years. Unfortunately for end-users its actual implementation in real life applications has been slow. But recently Blizzard has officially released its World of Warcraft: Cataclysm 4.1 Patch, which should attract just that bit more attention to this. Read on to find out why.
Today we are going to investigate the performance, overclocking potential, temperature mode and noise levels of a new solution positioned between the old Radeon HD 5770 and the new Radeon HD 6850.
Today we are going to take a look at one of the most highly anticipated ??? titles of 2011 - Crysis 2 First-Person Shooter video game. The predecessor is still the benchmark to beat even for the latest AMD Radeon HD 6990 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 dreadnoughts and the second part is expected to raise the performance bar even higher
According to Nvidia’s classification, GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a “hunter”. Today we are going to meet an entire squad of hunters from different manufacturers: EVGA, MSI, Palit and Zotac. Which one is going to be the best?
Nvidia, the founder of the multi-card configuration concept, has been standing by the advantages of this approach for many years. In reality, “3dfx’s heritage” is a blessing for some and a curse for others. So, how are things with GeForce GTX 550 Titanium SLI configuration? Let’s find out!
