With another successful 'hard' launch of the NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2, we are seeing quite an ample supply of these powerful cards in the market. US$599 may seem like a lot but hardware enthusiasts are probably still snapping them up. Here's what we thought of Gigabyte's well packaged version.
ATI managed to launch the Radeon X1900 GT right on the dot last month and we've all seen how it posed a decent challenge to the GeForce 7900 GT. For those still on the fence between ATI and NVIDIA, here's another chance to review the evidence.
A dual-slot NVIDIA graphics card with 512MB of DDR3 memory and an overclocked core that's running at 550MHz. Is this really a GeForce 7900 GT? Well, it still is, albeit Palit's special Sonic version of a GeForce 7900 GT. Read on as we find out if it's as fast as its name.
HDMI finally comes to the PC, with this early look at a prototype of the PowerColor Radeon X1600 HDMI.
NVIDIA's recent track record of delivering to retail its newly launched products promptly continues with the GeForce 7950 GX2. We actually received the MSI NX7950GX2-T2D1GE some time last week but could only show you its performance here today.
Instead of forcefully hitting higher clocks to edge out the competition, NVIDIA went with a more parallel design by incorporating two cards in SLI within the footprint of a 7900 GTX and delivered the 'cleverly' designed GeForce 7950 GX2 - a monster sandwich. If a 50% speed boost over the 7900 GTX interests you, this is it.
So you thought the GeForce 7950 GX2 was performance shattering? Just wait till you see the performance potential of going Quad SLI with a pair of these beauties. Though not officially ready for end-users, that didn't stop us from bridging two of the highest-performing graphics card solutions. Read on.
ATI has fashioned another response to NVIDIA's recent bestsellers. This time, the high-end GeForce 7900 GT is the target and the rookie thrown in boasts a decent lineage with its R580 core. Read on to find out how the new Radeon X1900 GT fares against the competition.
The choices for a GeForce 7600 GT continues to expand as we take a look at the second passively cooled version of this popular mid-range graphics card to reach our labs. Equipped with Gigabyte's Silent Pipe II cooler, it promises absolute silence while still keeping respectable frame rates and comes with a good bundle to boot.
Compared to the GeForce 7600 and 7900 GT scene, there is hardly much activity among vendors for the top of the class GeForce 7900 GTX. Its high price and the proliferation of the reference design may be the reasons, along with relatively tight supply. Nevertheless, Inno3D has the goods and here's what we think.
