AMD goes over 7000 with its new flagship GPU built on a 28nm process. The new GPU architecture is called Graphics Core Next (GCN) which supports HDMI 1.4a as well as DisplayPort 1.2 HBR2. We pit the new Radeon HD 7970 and 7950 models to see how far they've progressed from its predecessors. Can it unseat the GeForce GTX 580 from its throne on all accounts?
2009 heralded the rise of 3D movies, and if you want the same immersive experience on your desktop, you only need to look to NVIDIA. To that end, we are taking a look at some of the most powerful GeForce GTX 285 cards money can buy to power your 3D gaming rig. Join us as we find out which is best.
Intel and NVIDIA have allied themselves in the battle against AMD with the introduction of the "Power of 3" platform. Simply put, it is any combination of Intel's P55 chipset and Core i5 processors, and NVIDIA's graphics card. Today, we are going to pit it against an all AMD system to see if it is really the superior setup.
Hot on the heels of the Radeon HD 5870, HD 5850 and HD 5770 comes the HD 5750. Despite packing the least processing horsepower amongst ATI's current Evergreen line-up, it has an attractive price that cannot be ignored. We see if it has the performance to match up with the PowerColor PCS HD 5750 Premium Edition.
The Radeon HD 5770 falls short of fantastic, but how would two of them in CrossFire configuration perform? Would it surpass the dual-GPU Radeon HD 4870 X2? Check out the results to find out.
The cogs of ATI's war machine are turning and they are not letting up. After the awesome Radeon HD 5870 and 5850, they are continuing the assault on NVIDIA by releasing the Radeon HD 5770. The 4700 series used to be ATI's mainstream selection, how would the 5770 perform? Let's find out.
The Radeon HD 5870 is undoubtedly fast, but how would two of them perform? In an attempt to simulate the performance of the upcoming Radeon HD 5870 X2, we put a pair 5870 cards together in CrossFireX and compare it with two 4870 X2 cards. Along the way, we also examined how such a configuration would perform on an Intel X38 and an X58 setup.
That's right; the boss himself spills the beans of NVIDIA's next generation game changing GPU architecture, Fermi. Find out more about the GT300 and what you can expect out of it - live from NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California.
With the increasing emphasis on green computing, graphics card manufacturers have come up with power-efficient variants of the highly popular GeForce 9800 GT. These eco-friendly versions promise lower power consumption at similar performance levels. We take cards from MSI and Zotac for a spin and compare them against a bog standard GeForce 9800 GT to test out their claims.
