Meet the NVIDIA Grid Gaming System, a next-gen cloud-gaming architecture which consists of 20 servers totaling 240 high-density GPUs to provide 200 TFLOPS of processing power. With proof of concept demos and service providers working with NVIDIA to bring about gaming on any screen or device, the GRID has the potential to be a true game changer.
As the year comes to a close it's time to take a look again at AMD's Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680 to see who can end the year as the reigning king of GPUs. We'll also take a look at which is the better buy if you're planning on building a new system early in 2013.
The long-rumored dual-GPU Radeon HD 7990 has finally appeared, although not from AMD as you might have expected. Instead, add-in partner PowerColor has taken things into its own hands and created the Devil 13, a dual-GPU triple slot card utilizing two Tahiti XT Radeon HD 7970 GPUs clocked at 925MHz. We find out if it was worth the wait.
Rounding out NVIDIA's Kepler lineup, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti is aimed at gamers looking for an affordable Kepler-based graphics solution with a bit more bite than what's offered with NVIDIA's previous GTX 650. We took it for a test drive and also had a look at a custom edition from ASUS.
NVIDIA claims that the GeForce GTX 650 will bring full HD gaming to the masses. We check out NVIDIA's new mainstream SKU as well as MSI's new GTX 650 Power Edition.
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 660 is its first true mid-range Kepler card and features a brand new GK106 core. Priced at an attractive US$229, NVIDIA claims that this card offers the best price-performance ratio out of the entire Kepler series. We take it for a test drive as well as custom models from ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI.
Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 680 Windforce 5X Super Overclock is a monster triple-slot, five-fan, custom GTX 680 boasting the highest factory overclock speeds out there, with core speeds ramped up to 1137MHz and memory pushed to 6200MHz DDR. We find out just what this beast is capable of.
We were impressed by NVIDIA's latest GK104 core based GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card. Now it's time to find out how powerful a pair of them will be in 2-way SLI configuration. Prepare to be surprised!
Last week, we saw the first batch of custom overclocked GeForce GTX 660 Ti cards battle it out, but now MSI has entered the arena with its Twin Frozr IV Power Edition. Factory overclocked to 1020MHz at the core, and running MSI's proven cooling system, will it be the last card standing? Read on to find out!
NVIDIA's upper mid-range GeForce GTX 660 Ti is the first sub-US$300 card to utilize its 28nm Kepler architecture. Anticipation for this card has been high and, as expected, almost all of NVIDIA's add-in partners have produced their own custom overclocked models. We find out if it was worth the wait, including a shootout of the finest from ASUS, Gigabyte and Palit graphics cards.
