The Radeon HD 5870 might be fast, but it is not the undisputed speed king yet. That will all change, however, as the all-new dual-GPU Radeon HD 5970 enters the fray. Boasting two Cypress XT GPUs on a single PCB, the King returns to reclaim its crown in a bigger and bolder fashion.
NVIDIA is boosting the ranks of their GT200 class cards with a new arrival, the GeForce GT 240. Positioned between the GeForce 9600 GT and 9800 GT, NVIDIA claims this is the perfect GPU under US$99 for mainstream visual computing and power gaming. Naturally, we had to investigate.
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.
Sporting fewer stream processors and lower clock speeds than the Radeon HD 5870, the Radeon HD 5850 has thus far been largely overlooked. Today, we are checking out the little brother of the Cypress range to see what kind of performance it brings to the table.
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 NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 is an all-new GPU that was initially meant for OEM but has since been made available to the public. Along with the GeForce GT 210, it is NVIDIA's first desktop GPU manufactured using a 40nm process. How will this budget GPU perform? Will it allow you to get some decent gaming done? 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.
In this last update from NVIDIA's GPU Tech Conference, we packed more videos and movie magic from Transformers and Harry Potter thanks to Lucasfilm and their use of GPUs to bring about increased realism. We also had a group chat session with Jen-Hsun to find out his thoughts in various verticals. So don't miss this interesting finale!
