FreeSync on Nvidia GPUs Revisited
     Fri, Mar 22 2019 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year we first put Nvidia's support for FreeSync monitors to the test, grabbed every FreeSync monitor we had in the office, and verified that in all cases adaptive sync worked as expected. LG recently sent us 5 of their latest FreeSync monitors, which we've used to revisit Nvidia's FreeSync support.

The Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2070 Mini is in contrast to other RTX 2070 cards on the market. By, in contrast, I'm talking about the physical size of the card. The Mini moniker at the end of the product name denotes a smaller, more compact version. Over the last few generations of Nvidia cards, Zotac has produced the Mini models. …

Corsair Crystal Series 680X RGB Case Review
     Fri, Mar 22 2019 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you liked the look of Corsair’s Micro ATX 280X case that was released last year, but were a little disappointed it didn’t come in a larger form-factor, then you are in luck! Corsair has today released the 680X, a very similar – but larger – case with plenty of breathing room for a whole host of tasty RGB hardware. With a dual chamber design making it easier to hide away cables, plenty of tempered glass, included RGB fans and the option to vertically mount your GPU, there is certainly an emphasis on aesthetics.

MSI GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X – Turing Without The RTX
     Thu, Mar 21 2019 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI has put into our hands today the new Turing powered GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X. Now, wait a minute, I thought the new cards were RTX? Well, that is true but this is the first of the non-RTX powered GPUs based on new Turing architecture. What this means is that while it has all of the increased shader performance we have come to know, it does so without the inclusion of RT and Tensor cores. The MSI 1660 Ti Gaming X looks eerily similar to the previous review model we just covered recently the MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z.

MSI GTX 1660 Gaming X 6G Review
     Thu, Mar 21 2019 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost three weeks ago, Nvidia launched the GTX 1660 Ti – the first GPU based on the Turing architecture to not have any RTX features. In what will come as a surprise to absolutely no one, today marks the release of the GTX 1660. GTX 1660 uses the same TU116 GPU as its bigger brother, but with one TPC disabled – meaning there are two less SMs and 128 less CUDA cores. It also keeps 6GB of VRAM, but in the form of older GDDR5 memory, rather than GDDR6. With prices starting at £199, is GTX 1660 worth buying?

MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Gaming X 6G Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Mar 21 2019 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As expected NVIDIA has launched their GeForce GTX 1660 (non-Ti) graphics card today. With this release they are bolstering their lower-end segment with a new card at the $219 MSRP. Compared to the GTX 1660 Ti we took a look at earlier this week the GTX 1660 features only 1408 CUDA cores (1536 on the GTX 1660 Ti), so about a 9% reduction in cores. The other big change is that the GTX 1660 will feature 6GB of GDDR5 (8GBps) memory, compared to the 6GB of faster GDDR6 (12Gbps) on the GTX 1660 Ti. Just like the GTX 1660 Ti, the GTX 1660 launch is completely partner driven so we do not have a Founder’s Edition card. The card we are taking a look at today is the MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Gaming X 6G. This card is the highest clocked GTX 1660 available from MSI with a GPU Boost clock of 1860 MHz (compared to 1785 MHz reference). It also features MSI’s Twin Frozr 7 cooling solution, a nice bushed aluminum backplate, and RGB lighting. Is this the GTX 1660 card to get? Read on as we find out!"
