AMD R9 290 Graphics Card Review

Today we get to see the last of the R9 lineup – the AMD R9 290. To the surprise of many, AMD is positioning this card against the recently-price-reduced GTX 780. Can it hold up against NVIDIA’s cut down GK110 GPU? The R9 290X sure did, so we have high hopes for the R9 290. Let’s see what it has to offer, shall we? Read More

AMD Launches R9 290 Series Graphics Cards

Well, we’d like to tell you we have a review today, but AMD says pre-launch samples were tight and was unable to procure one for us. They have iterated they will get us one post-launch though, so we’ll bring you a full review as soon as we’re able.

In addition to the fact that they were unable to seed one, we have it on good authority that multiple US offices of board partners (big ones) hadn’t even held one of these in their hands as of late last week. Partners aren’t sampling reference boards, only AMD is, so either supply is tight or AMD is controlling this launch just as tightly. This is, in fact, a hard launch – AMD expects immediate availability. There isn’t any information on supply amounts though. Hopefully they’ll have plenty. Time will tell. Read More

ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card Review

ASUS has gone and done it now. They’ve brought out a beast of a custom-PCB GTX 780 – the new ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II OC. It takes the reference GTX 780 design, throws it out the window and starts over from scratch, with some great looking results. Let’s have a look at what it can do! Read More

ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU Mini Graphics Card Review

We review a lot of powerful video cards here. Between three of our editors, we have three GTX 780 being put through their paces. However, you can’t always fit that kind of power in the system you want to build. What if you’re into small form factor (SFF) computer building? There is an entire community of SFF builders in our own forums. Gamers that enjoy going to LAN parties also run into issues not wanting to lug around fifty plus pound rigs around. ASUS thinks they have their answer for you – the ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU Mini. Read More

ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card Review

Continuing our cadre of GTX 760 cards, we’re back today with ASUS’ offering, the ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU II. It is overclocked slightly over the base GTX 760, but not quite as far as the EVGA card we looked at before. Let’s see what ASUS has to offer! Read More

NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 780 Graphics Card Review

In the lead-up to Computex, NVIDIA is heading the pack, releasing their new GEFORCE GTX 780. This is their flagship for the GTX 700-series. While TITAN should remain at the top of NVIDIA’s single-GPU lineup, the GTX 780 – based off of the same GK110 GPU – shouldn’t be any slacker. Read on and we’ll show you just how close the GTX 780 can get! Read More

AMD Launches the HD 7990 Dual GPU Card

Today AMD is announcing their “new” HD 7990 dual GPU graphics card. This isn’t very new though, as there have been two cards with dual HD 7970’s on them for a while now. Rumored for a long time, AMD is finally bringing the reference HD 7990 to the market. Read More
