AMD announced its Navi-based next-generation Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT graphics cards just last month. Many were quick to note that the prices didn’t really make them the no-brainer challenger to NVIDIA’s GPUs. However, merely days before their release on July 7th, AMD has decided to cut the prices of its brand new GPUs.
NVIDIA has, rather quietly, launched the GeForce GT 1030. It’s an affordable graphics card that rivals the Radeon RX 550. It’s geared towards those who want to get a graphics card that isn’t too expensive but does fulfill their e-sports and home theater PC requirements. The fact that it’s not a high-end product is evident from the absence of the “X” in GTX.
NVIDIA recently announced its latest generation of graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070, both graphics cards have a 16nm GPU as opposed to the 28nm Maxwell GPUs in the previous generation. The cards also have Micro GDDR5X memory with a 256-bit bus with up to 2,560 cores on the GTX 1080. Simply put, they offer exceptional performance, so it’s no surprise to see that DOOM looks absolutely bonkers […]

There are times when our computers overheat for a good many variety of reasons. In the case of Taylor Niver who just bought a new graphics card for his computer, the GPU started overheating due to his power supply not being large enough to provide enough juice to power his new graphics card properly. Deciding that he did not want another close call and a potentially burnt out GPU, he […]
A little over a month ago we reported on the Sony Vaio Z which was a notebook that was supposed to give Apple’s MacBook Air a run for its money. The main difference (apart from the operating system) between both laptops was that the Sony Vaio Z came with an external graphics card that would give the user the luxury of choosing whether they wanted a portable machine or a […]
It looks like Apple’s Mac OS X 10.6.7 update released a few days ago doesn’t only bring improvements to the operating system. It introduces new problems to Macs that use NVIDIA Quadro 4000 graphics cards. It has been reported that the display driver for the graphics card was incompatible with OS X 10.6.7 and during installation of the update, it was simply removed. Without the proper drivers for the graphics […]
It is pretty amazing that cooling technology has progressed to such an extent where you can cram in so many more processors while achieving a much better performance than previous generation chipsets, while running as cool as ever – or cooler. MSI’s latest N580GTX HydroGen graphics card carries on with this tradition, where it will come with MSI’s proprietary HydroGen all copper waterblock and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 580’s top of […]
Folks who are looking to build a new HTPC will want to take note that HIS is gearing up to launch another low-profile graphics card in the form of the Radeon HD 5550. The fact that this card is passively-cooled should help to keep noise levels low for your audio enjoyment. This card integrates a 40nm Redwood GPU, 400 Stream processors, 128-bit memory interface, 500MHz core clock, 1GB DDR2 VRAM […]
Love gaming on your computer, and wish that you were a professional gamer?

AMD has released its ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition graphics card that is capable of offering stunning performance thanks to its 2GB of GDDR5 memory alongside rendering capability in excess of 1 billion pixels per second (!) in current generation gaming titles, which is basically a dozen times more resolution compared to 1080p HD. According to AMD, the amount of memory offered allows DirectX 11 games to run […]
After the NVIDIA Optimus teaser was posted in early January, there was some speculation about what it was, but we now have first-hand information: NVIDIA Optimus is an architecture for multi-GPU computers (typically integrated + discrete) that allows the operating system to seamlessly switch between integrated and discrete graphics. The goal is to use the most appropriate graphics processor at any given time in order to minimize power consumption or […]
AMD outs its latest ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, being the most affordable DirectX 11 (and OpenGL 3.2) solution in the market as at press time, retailing for no more than $60 a pop. Despite that highly affordable price point, the ATI Radeon HD 5450 has enough muscle to support similar visual effects as with the 5600 and 5800 lines, although you get lesser stream processors at 80, alongside 8 […]
Everyone loves bigger viewing real estate, if not monitors would not grow in size over the years (while getting slimmer, which is a good thing). After a while though, a compromise must be met, and this is where multiple monitors come in. Matrix does what it does best with the new DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Module (GXM) which can support up to four or half a dozen monitors, respectively, […]
