EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classified Graphics Card Review

There isn’t a whole lot we can say about EVGA that most PC enthusiasts don’t already know. They have been NVIDIA’s top selling graphics card maker for quite a while now, which is no big surprise given their history of providing top notch products. NVIDIA’s recent GTX 980 Ti release gives EVGA another chance to show their wares, and they’ve done just that by rolling out their new GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+. Read More

EVGA GTX 970 FTW Graphics Card Review

We’ve recently reviewed several NVIDIA GTX 980 based graphics cards here at Overclockers, and we came away impressed with their low power consumption, great performance, and “bang-for-the-buck” pricing. Today, we’re going to drop it down a notch and have a look at our first GTX 970. More specifically, the EVGA GTX 970 FTW. The factory overclock EVGA applied to the GTX 970 FTW is one of the highest we’ve ever seen, which leads us to believe EVGA is extremely confident in the headroom that’s available on these Maxwell 2 GPUs.

GALAX GTX 980 SOC Video Card Review

Today we get a chance to review another Maxwell based GPU. Thankfully, we have moved on from the teaser Maxwell in the GTX 750 Ti and on to the big boys in the GTX 970 and 980 (but likely not the biggest!). NVIDIA has made some significant changes to this architecture including, but not limited to, much lower power consumption and more efficient use of the available shaders, and also memory throughput (via compression). In my hands is a GALAX (formerly Galaxy) GTX 980 SOC, or Super Overclocked to be precise. This card takes NVIDIA’s reference design to another level with a more robust power delivery area and better cooler to name a couple of things. It’s time to take her out for a test drive and see if we can melt the rubber down to the rims! Read More

ASUS Strix GTX 980 Graphics Card Review

Today, we’re going to look at the ASUS Strix GTX 980 graphics card, which currently wears the “flagship” badge of their Maxwell based GPU offerings.

EVGA GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 Graphics Card Review

We finally got our hands on a GTX 980 thanks to the fine folks at EVGA. They were kind enough to send along their Superclocked version featuring the new ACX 2.0 cooler. Based on the NVIDIA Maxwell GM204 GPU, the GTX 980 promises less power consumption than the previous flagship Kepler based GPUs and performance that meets or exceeds them. This is also our first chance to look at EVGA’s new ACX 2.0 cooler that is said to run cooler, quieter, and use less power than previous versions. Let’s get started and find out what the latest NVIDIA GPU technology and EVGA have in store for us. Read More

Galaxy GTX 750 GC Graphics Card Review

NVIDIA partners are beginning to roll out their new GTX 750 graphics cards and the new Maxwell architecture they offer. As we discovered during our launch day article, Maxwell GPUs bring a lot of new technologies along with the new architecture. Most notable is the high power efficiency they bring to the table, which allows them to be used in lower end systems that might not have been able to handle the power demands before. Today, we’ll be looking at one of Galaxy’s new Maxwell GPU offerings in the form of their GTX 750 GC 1 GB Dual Fan model. Galaxy has added several of their own unique enhancements from the reference design cards, such as an expanded PCB, proprietary dual-fan cooler, and a factory overclock. It all sounds good on paper… Let’s go find out! Read More
