Sapphire Radeon 6870 FleX Edition
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“What's so special about the Sapphire Radeon 6870 FleX Edition graphics card? Well, it supports Eyefinity out of the box with no need for expensive DisplayPort or adapters. That capability is built directly into the card itself, independent of the monitors being used. This means that any monitors with DVI ports can now run Eyefinity; no expensive DisplayPort is necessary. Sapphire may have one very special card for consumers here. Let's dive in and take a close look at the 6870 FleX and see if it indeed is a game-changer.

OCZ Gold 4GB DDR3-2133
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we are looking at a flagship set of sticks from OCZ: some Gold XTE DDR3-2133 modules that are reasonably priced for the speed rating. The timings loosen up just a bit here though as a result, so while we don't think these will be absolute barn stormers, they should do the trick for just about anyone looking to push their Sandy Bridge platform.”

Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 CrossFire Review
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier on today we took a look at AMD's latest and greatest graphics card, the Radeon 6990. In that article we looked at a number of performance aspects and various features the card offered but one item was missing, CrossFire performance as we were yet to receive a second card. That changes now though as we have one of the first retail branded 6990s in our test system and have combined it with the reference model to look at performance when gaming on one and three screens. This includes Dragon Age 2, Crysis 2 and of course the customary run through 3DMark 2011."

ASUS GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP
     Sun, Mar 20 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti is the latest in the Fermi lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 560 Ti, it does have some distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. One of the interesting things about the launch of the GTX 550 Ti is there will be several models available from Nvidia partners simultaneously, and this one is from ASUS. Bringing a custom cooler and a factory overclock, along with voltage tweaking ability for even more horsepower, today is quite exciting if you're in the market for a new graphics card that won't break the bank.”

Evercool has once again released another solid product to help keep your laptop cool. The Battle Hero with its bold graphics is squarely aimed at gamers.
