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

MSI HD 7970 TwinFrozr III OC Boost Edition Review

Today I finally get a chance to bring you something new… Ok, that was a really bad joke as most all of us know we are really in the middle of nowhere here on “new” cards coming out from both camps. That said, I bring to you another 7970, from MSI, dubbed the HD 7970 TwinFrozr III OC Boost Edition. This card boasts MSI’s TwinFrozr III cooler, as well as having the new ‘boost clock’ from AMD. Let’s see how it stacked up against another 7970 and its peers on the Nvidia side. Read More

EVGA GTX 650 Ti BOOST SC Graphics Card Review

We’re back today with another iteration of NVIDIA’s new GTX 650 Ti BOOST, this time from EVGA in the form of their GTX 65 Ti BOOST SuperClocked (SC for short). This card is obviously clocked above the stock 650 Ti BOOST, but how much does that gain? Let’s find out. Read More

Galaxy GTX 650 Ti Boost Review

If you have been following the GPU landscape this last generation, you may have observed a bit of the “Goldilocks Paradox” with some recent releases. AMD fired first with their HD 7790 to fill a price and performance gap, and most recently, NVIDIA fired back with the release of the GTX 650 Ti Boost to do the same. NVIDIA’s aim was to put out a card for the ‘sweet spot’ resolution of 1920×1080 while using ‘high’ settings in games. It’s time to kick the tires and take the Galaxy GTX 650 Ti Boost for spin. Let’s see if their goals were met and what other goodies Galaxy has under the hood. Read More

HIS HD 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo 4GB GPU Review with Crossfire

HIS sent us not one, but two of their brand new 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo 4GB cards. I find the combination of 4GB of RAM and a 7850 to be a bit odd as a single card has little hope of driving enough monitor to need more than 2GB. A pair of cards on the other hand, have a chance. In Crossfire (and SLI) the GPU RAM is not added together, a pair of 2GB cards still gives you 2GB. Thus for high resolution (or extremely high detail) use, two 2GB cards might not cut it. Enter the 7850 4GB cards! Inexpensive enough to crossfire (I hope), plenty of RAM for top end stuff. The main question is, does a 7850 core have enough guts to push that many pixels? I aim to find out. Read More
