GIGABYTE RTX 2070 Gaming OC Video Card Review

When NVIDIA unleashed the new Turing based video cards a few weeks ago, they released the flagship RTX 2080 Ti and its little brother the RTX 2080. At that time, they promised we would see an RTX 2070 in the stack as well but a bit later down the line. The 2070 was released as expected on October 17th and we recently received ours a short time ago from GIGABYTE in their RTX 2070 Gaming OC 8G. Read More

EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra Gaming Video Card Review

Next up in our tour of the new Turing GPUs, is an EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra Gaming. Their XC line of cards in the RTX 2080 series includes a dual fan cooler mounted to a robust heatsink and an overclock from the factory. Also in their lineup is the FTW3 Ultra. This card uses a three fan cooling solution and is the most overclocked fro EVGA. The XC Ultra Gaming this review is about is one of those dual fan solutions and the 2nd fastest in their 2080 lineup. We’ll test the EVGA RTX 2080 against the Founders Edition and the MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio card we recently reviewed to see how it performs and how it places itself in the market. Read More

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio Video Card Review

Today we are looking at our first partner card in the MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio. The Gaming X Trio hails from MSI’s premium line of cards (Gaming) and with it includes a slight overclock out of the box. The main difference between the FE cards and this offering is the Tri-Frozr Thermal design/large heatsink that MSI put on this card. Between its raised clocks, and monster cooler, we are hoping to see better overclocking and performance from this card. Read on to see the results of our testing! Read More

MSI GTX 1070 Ti TITANIUM Video Card Review

Today we get a chance to test the newest addition to MSI’s Pascal lineup, the GTX 1070 Ti Titanium 8G video card. The announcement of a GTX 1070 Ti sparked a lot of discussion on the tech forums. Speculations on performance and price but the big question was WHY? If I had a definitive answer I’d gladly share, but I don’t. What I will share however are some performance figures and overclocking results.

As the name says this is the Titanium version with at familiar silvery finish matching MSI’s Titanium motherboard line nicely. Built on their custom PCB which MSI refers to as the “Gaming” PCB, it has plenty of power to drive it and their TwinFrozr VI cooling solution to tame it. This should give us some overclocking headroom and we’ll see just how much soon enough. Read More

ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1070 Gaming 8G Review

Today on the review rig, we have the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1070 to share with you. The 1070 Strix promises to have good and quiet cooling, your now typical RGB LEDs, and superior performance over any Founders Edition (FE) cards due to the factory overclock. There are a couple of neat features here, one of which is FanConnect, which you will later see why this sets the card apart from the others. Read on below to see if they have again accomplished what they set out to do! Read More

MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G GPU Review

We saw a couple of weeks ago NVIDIA released the GTX 1080 Ti which we had a chance to review. From that review we concluded it was a beast of a card, even in its Founders Edition form. Truth be told, its the closest thing to a single GPU solution at 4K resolution with high settings we have, and at a more reasonable price than the Titan XP or Xp or… whatever the new one is called. As with nearly every GPU released, the AIB’s get in the game giving us their take. MSI sent us the GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G to review. They have updated their Twin Frozr cooling solution as well as better goodies on the PCB to deliver a quieter and better performing version of the FE 1080 Ti. Read on below to see how it shapes up!

MSI GTX 1070 Aero ITX 8G OC Video Card Review

Up next on the test bench is another 1070 from MSI. This time, however, it is a small form factor GTX 1070 instead of the full sized card. We have in our hands the MSI GTX 1070 Aero ITX 8G OC. The card promises to have everything the full sized card has hardware wise, but in an ITX form factor. Let’s see what magic MSI used to keep this card cool and humming along even with a smaller, single fan cooler keeping temperatures where we need it. Read More

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Card Review

Its new, its a flagship, its the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. The only question about how fast this GPU will be is whether it will knock the Titan X Pascal off its throne. This is the base/reference design for all the GPU partners to base designs from (or design up from), so expect numbers to climb from what you see here today as new cards release! Read More
