NVIDIA went back to the drawing board with the GeForce GTX 650 Ti video card that was released in October 2012 and gave it a more horsepower! NVIDIA took the GeForce GTX 650 Ti’s GK106 ‘Kepler’ GPU and tweaked it a bit to get even more performance from it, while keeping the price point the same. The changes include GPU boost, 768 CUDA cores, 1GB or 2GB of memory running on a 192-bit interface and 2-way SLI multi-GPU support! Read on to see how the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost performs!
AMD just introduced the Radeon HD 7790 desktop graphics card that is powered by the new Bonaire GPU.

If you are looking for a new gaming graphics card and money is not an issue, you are in for a real treat today! ASUS recently sent over the ASUS ARES II and we have been pounding on this card for days on end. Read on to see how two AMD Radeon HD 7970 GPUs perform when overclocked to 1100MHz on our test system!
Futuremark today released the Windows version of the new 3DMark benchmark! This highly anticipated release has been delayed a number of times, but it appears to be complete and ready for release. We’ve recently been benchmarking the ASUS ARES II and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 video cards, so those are the two cards that we’ll be showing off today! Read on to see which card runs the benchmark the fastest and to learn more about the benchmark utility!
One of the new features in After Effects CS6, is native 3D ray-tracing using the NVIDIA CUDA engine. While Adobe After Effects CS6 has been out for nearly eight months, we were shocked to find hardly any benchmark results! Legit Reviews took a handful of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 500 Series ‘Fermi’ cards off the shelf and compared them to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600 Series ‘Kepler’ cards. Read on to see which cards are best at rendering some 3D ray-traced videos!
AMD will be launching the Radeon HD 8000 series graphics cards for both desktop and notebook PCs in 2013. AMD will be launching mobile parts first and we were sent over a Radeon HD 8790M to try out. This is the first mobile graphics processor that we have been able to get our hands on that is based on the AMD Graphics Core Next architecture. Read on to see how it performs!
The ASUS MATRIX HD 7970 Platinum video card features top-selected GPUs that have been factory overclocked to 1100 MHz! ASUS placed these highly binned chips on a custom designed PCB with 3GB of overclocked GDDR5 Hynix memory and added features like DIGI+ VRM 20-phase power delivery, VGA Hotwire, TweakIt and the Direct CU II GPU cooler. The end result is a video card that is entirely custom that was made for power users around the world!
AMD says the FirePro W5000 is the most powerful midrange workstation graphics card ever created. For example, it has the ability to process up to 1.65 billion triangles per second, allowing a designer to easily interact and render 3D models, while the competing solution is only able to process up to 0.41 billion triangles per second (up to 4 times less). Read on to see how this sub $450 professional graphics card does in some benchmarks!
Today, we will be looking at the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 and GeForce GTX 680 DirectCU II TOP edition video cards. These cards have very similar ASUS centric design specs (VRM, PCB and Heatsink), so we figured we’d cover both cards at once. We will be using the just released GeForce 310.33 drivers to test the performance of these high-end graphics cards! No review is complete with comparisons, so they will be competing against the Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X and the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Vapor-X!
Today, AMD is making two big announcements. First, they are announcing some very impressive game bundles for those that are looking to buy a Radeon HD graphics card this fall and holiday shopping season. Secondly, they are announcing ‘The Never Settle Driver’ (Catalyst 12.11) that offers significant performance improvements in pretty much every game and benchmark available. Read on to find out more about both!
The SAPPHIRE HD 7970 3GB OC Vapor-X Edition has a core clock speed of 1050 MHz and 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz (effective). We put this custom card to the test to see how it performs in the games and how well it can overclock. With a healthy factory overclock and the Vapor-X cooler this card should perform well, but you never know unless you try it out!
