The Zotac Nitro OC Controller was conceived to help make overclocking your graphics cards a breeze. We take a look to see if it really works.
Launched only in September, the ATI Radeon HD 4670 is fast becoming a hit amongst casual gamers and enthusiasts thanks to its capable all-round performance and sweet price-point. Here, we take a look at two offerings from MSI and Palit to see which is best.
Apparently, there was a bit of a mix-up involving the new Radeon HD 4830 - some cards were shipped with 560 stream processors instead of 640. Fortunately, or not, we happened to have one of the affected cards with only 560 stream processors and decided to investigate further.
After our review of the Radeon HD 4670, we spoke about the need for ATI to plug the performance gap between the the HD 4850 and HD4670. We knew they had something up their sleeves, and it is finally here, the Radeon HD 4830. We put it through its paces to see just how well it performs.
The guys at ASUS probably drew their inspiration for the card from watching The Matrix movie. Deck in black throughout, and sporting a fancy cooler and an even fancier Super Hybrid Engine chip, we see if the new ASUS EN9800GT Matrix has what it takes to be "The One".
NVIDIA is at it again, taking an old product and renaming it before passing it off as something new. This time, they have taken the old and rather short-lived GeForce 8800 GS and rebadged it as the 'new' GeForce 9600 GSO. Will it help them win the battle for mid-market supremacy? We find out.
Factory-overclocking and customized coolers are two popular ways for graphics cards to differentiate themselves from the competition. Short of featuring a rainbow-colored PCB, Zotac has taken another route with their GeForce 9600 GT DP offering. Check out our review to find out what the Hong Kong-based vendor has up its sleeves.
HIS is renowned for its IceQ cooling system, which is in its fourth generation. We check out the HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ 4 Turbo X to see if the IceQ 4 cooling system can live up to its predecessors. Along the way, we also find out if this is the best Radeon HD 4850 money can buy now.
ATI continues on its spree of introducing new mainstream and budget graphics cards with the debut of the Radeon HD 4550. We took the opportunity to pit it against NVIDIA's comparable GeForce 9400 GT to find out who rules the budget segment.
NVIDIA's recently released GeForce 9800 GTX+ GPU was meant to do battle with ATI's Radeon HD 4850 and we have a fine example here in Zotac's GeForce 9800 GTX+ Zone Edition. Boasting an elaborate water-cooling mechanism, we check to see if the 9800 GTX+ has what it takes to go against the HD 4850 and if Zotac's water-cooling unit actually works.
