It seems a bit silly to pay for a game when you can get it for free, doesn't it? Whoa, slow down there fella -- we're not encouraging you to pirate games on a torrent site or to help yourself to a five-finger discount at your local games retailer. However, if you're in the market for a new graphics card, be advised that EVGA is handing out codes for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel when you purchase a qualifying NVIDIA GPU. "Experience the fist-punching visuals of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel with the space-age power and performance of GeForce GTX!," NVIDIA technologies like PhysX, Surround, and G-SYNC... Read more...
Turn out the lights, the party's over. Graphics card vendors enjoyed a boost in sales thanks in large part to the Bitcoin mining craze (along with other forms of virtual currency, like Litecoin) that everyone seemed to get caught up in, but the thing about these cryptocurriences is that they're exceedingly difficult to mine and profit from as time goes on. Now that virtual coin mining has cooled off a bit, so too has the demand for GPUs. Citing sources from "graphics card players," Digitimes says worldwide videocard shipments are about to fall off a cliff -- more specifically, shipments are expected... Read more...
If you're looking to make a splash in your next high-end gaming rig and have the requisite funds, EVGA will tempt you with not one, but three different NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z graphic card options. There's the standard model, if you can use such a term to describe a dual-GPU beast like the Titan Z, as well as a Superclocked SKU and a version that comes with a Hydro Copper cooling solution for water cooling setups. The Titan Z boasts two GPUs, 5,760 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 672GB/s of memory bandwidth, to cover some of the highlights. It also uses a new dynamic power balancing technology...

If you've been wanting to upgrade your setup to run the fastest consumer level graphics card on the planet, today's the day you've been waiting for. AMD's insanely powerful Radeon R9 295X2 card is now starting to pop up online for purchase. The card isn't for everyone -- many gamers will find it cost prohibitive -- but if you have the disposable income and a beefy enough power supply, then we tip our hats to you, good sir or madam. Amazon has a few of these cards listed. Stock comes and goes, though one to keep an eye on is the XFX brand card. It's currently priced at $1,649.99 with free shipping,... Read more...
Do you know what gets our juices flowing even more than high-end hardware? It's having the opportunity to wrangle and evaluate multiple versions of a top-tier product. In this case, we've gone out and collected NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics cards from three different enthusiast brands: EVGA, Gigabyte, and MSI. Each of the cards in this roundup go above and beyond NVIDIA's reference blueprint -- they're all factory overclocked, custom cooled, and designed to run quiet so you can hear when an enemy tries to sneak up on you...

Do you know what gets our juices flowing even more than high-end hardware? It's having the opportunity to wrangle and evaluate multiple versions of a top-tier product. In this case, we've gone out and collected NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics cards from three different enthusiast brands: EVGA, Gigabyte, and MSI. Each of the cards in this roundup go above and beyond NVIDIA's reference blueprint -- they're all factory overclocked, custom cooled, and designed to run quiet so you can hear when an enemy tries to sneak up on you. Before we discuss each individual card, let's take a moment... Read more...
The level of performance that today's graphics cards can achieve is nothing short of mind boggling, especially as you venture into elite territory. Should you do that, you'll come across AMD's recently announced Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card, a beastly dual-GPU part that isn't intimidated by 4K gaming, and currently the fastest single video card we've ever tested. It's not yet available as a standalone part, though if you're in the market for a new system, boutique builder Maingear has added AMD's flagship pixel pusher to its lineup of desktops. You'll find the Radeon R9 295X2 offered as an option... Read more...
AMD is determined to offer gamers a modern generation graphics card at nearly every price point, and having completed its Radeon R7 stack, the Sunnyvale chip designer just launched the Radeon R9 280, a mid-range part that slips in neatly below the R9 280X. It's built for gaming at resolutions exceeding Full HD 1080p and according to AMD, the R9 280 offers 20 percent better performance compared to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 760 graphics card. The Radeon R9 280 is essentially a tweaked and reborn (not rebadged) Radeon HD 7950 but with faster clocks, higher watt tolerance, and a lower price tag at launch.... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 Ti and GTX Titan are two of the fastest graphics cards on the planet, but lest you think the company is going to rest on its laurels, it's about to launch even faster parts. There's the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition with a pile of onboard GDDR5 memory (6GB, to be exact) and the dual-GPU GTX 790, also with 6GB. Thanks to some early listing for ASUS brand cards, we have an idea of what the early price points will be, at least overseas. The folks at VideoCardz.com dug up a listing for the ASUS GeForce GTX Titan Black going for 974 euros (around $1,330 in U.S. currency).... Read more...
It's not too often that we advocate playing the waiting game -- something newer, bigger, faster, shinier, etc. is always around the corner -- but if you're contemplating a graphics card upgrade, this is one of the rare times where it makes sense to wait just a little bit. Why is that? On November 7th, NVIDIA will release its GeForce GTX 780 Ti to retail, and in preparation for the new card, the GPU maker is rolling out some big time price cuts for its existing GTX 780 and 770 parts ahead of time. With the GeForce GTX 780 Ti joining the lineup, NVIDIA says the new suggested e-tail price for the... Read more...
NVIDIA recently made a flurry of announcements, among them the introduction of a new graphics card, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti. The GPU maker said the card would show up in retail sometime in November, though the company opted to keep its lips sealed in regards to the card's specifications, leaving us to speculate as to what's underneath the hood. In this day and age of the Internet, however, it's incredibly difficult to keep a secret, especially one that involves a product that's just weeks away from being on store shelves. That said, a Chinese language website posted what it claims are official specs... Read more...
You may have noticed that AMD's Radeon HD 7990 graphics card is selling for less money these days. That's because the Sunnyvale chip designer issued a generous price cut to its flagship part, and the end result is that you can get your mitts on what was once a $1,000 card for around $700 or less. Shop around a little and you could save even more. Granted, $700 is hardly cheap, but we're talking about a dual-GPU graphics card that's capable of performing like two Radeon HD 7970 cards when properly scaled (see our full review). Equally important, there's a value proposition at the $700 price point... Read more...
It's fair to say that the majority of PC gamers wield Windows-based boxes, but that doesn't mean you can't frag on a Mac. There's some high end gaming hardware available, including EVGA's new GeForce GTX 680 Mac Edition graphics card. The card is exactly what it sounds like -- a GTX 680 intended for Macs. EVGA's card shares the same specifications as NVIDIA's reference design, meaning the base and boost clocks check in at 1006MHz and 1058MHz, respectively. It also has 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6008MHz (effective) on a 256-bit bus, 1536 CUDA cores, and several key technologies, such as NVIDIA... Read more...
The talk of the town is Titan, NVIDIA's latest slice of silicon, but the fastest graphics card on the planet plays for the other team. Lest anyone forget that, AMD gave us a heads up that the ASUS ARES II graphics card -- a Radeon HD 7970 X2 -- recently broke a bunch of benchmark records, including one that was achieved using the card's stock cooling. With its stock cooling, the card posted a score of 7,213 in 3DMark's Fire Strike Extreme test, aided by an Intel Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition processor clocked at 4.5GHz, ASUS Rampage IV Formula motherboard, 16GB of DDR3 memory, and two solid state...
