AMD officially took the wraps off of its Radeon R7 and R9 300 series of graphics cards, and disclosed some details regarding the R9 Fury—a.k.a Fiji—during a livestream held near the E3 convention earlier this week. We have much of the information revealed during the event posted for you right here if you’d like to take a look.Today though, we’ve actually got one of the “new” Radeon R9 300 series cards in-hand for some review and benchmark action. We put “new” in quotes, because the entire R7 and R9 300 series lineup is built around the same GPUs used in the R7 an R9 200 series. The Powercolor PCS+... Read more...
iBuypower is offering an AMD-based system in its Chimera 4SE line, which is designed to give users serious gaming performance without a wallet-busting price tag. The Chimera is part of iBuypower’s Signature Series, which includes iBuypower’s highest-priced and most powerful gaming systems, like the Revolt and Valkyrie. The centerpiece of the Chimera 4SE FX Ultimate is an all AMD-based CPU/GPU combo. The processor is a 4.7GHz (5.0GHz with Turbo), eight-core AMD FX-9590, designed with overclockers in mind. It’s cooled by a closed-loop liquid cooler, which seems to be the way most... Read more...
iBuypower is offering an AMD-based system in its Chimera 4SE line, which is designed to give users serious gaming performance without a wallet-busting price tag. The Chimera is part of iBuypower’s Signature Series, which includes iBuypower’s highest-priced and most powerful gaming systems, like the Revolt and Valkyrie. So, what makes a desktop PC a Chimera 4SE? The chassis, for one thing. The Chimera has a custom chassis with unique artwork that makes the Chimera easily identifiable. (We talk more about the chassis on the next page.) Overclocking is another Chimera feature.... Read more...
PowerColor announced a beast of a graphics card with the Devil 13 HD7990, which features dual TAHITI XT GPUs in a single solution.

Perhaps looking to separate itself from the pack, TUL Corporation today announced newly designed Radeon HD 7870 and 7850 graphics cards in the PowerColor family. In addition to a few aesthetic enhancements, the new PowerColor cards are apparently "packed" with higher quality components for improved cooling, better stability, and more overclocking headroom. TUL Corporation didn't go into a whole lot of detail, though did mention that the new cards are using solid components. As for specs, the PowerColor HD 7870 GHz Edition features a 1,000MHz GPU clockspeed and 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4,800MHz... Read more...
Remember when LeBron James talked about winning not one championship, not two, three, four, five, six, or even seven? Apparently the number he was looking for was zero, which is half a dozen less than the number of displays TUL Corporation's new PowerColor HD7870 Eyefinity 6 graphics card supports simultaneously. That's right, this spunky card can drive not one, not two, not three, four, or five, but SIX monitors all by itself via six mini DisplayPorts, which "allows gamers to enhance productivity to get more things done at once, also delivering the most vivid HD gaming experience with wider view."...

If you're losing sleep at night because you feel as though your choices in computer hardware are offensive to Mother Nature, you might be a candidate for TUL Corporation's PowerColor Go! Green HD7750 graphics card. Armed with a totally silent cooling solution with no moving parts (passive), the Go! Green card won't pollute your living quarters with unnecessary noise or consume as much power a fan-based (active) reference cooler. Will using the Go! Green HD7750 save the planet and reverse global warming, assuming it exists (Hey look, an opened can of worms!)? No, it won't. But it will run silent,... Read more...
TUL Corporation just recently announced a line of PowerColor graphics cards apparently designed for "enthusiasts only." It's the Vortex II series, which is the nomenclature TUL uses to describe PowerColor cards that feature a deluxe "Platinum Power Kit" design for improved power efficiency, stability, and overclocking ability, along with Vortex II cooling technology. TUL's Vortex II coolers consists of dual adjustable fans with perforated blades intended to optimize airflow and to do a better job at dissipating excessive heat. There are two new cards as part of the Vortex II series, starting with... Read more...
The only thing better than overclocked hardware is hardware that comes overclocked from the factory, freeing you from that pesky voided warranty. TUL announced an overclocked PowerColor PCS+ HD7850 graphics card, which features a 1000MHz core clock and 1225MHz memory speed. In addition to a 92mm fan and SS-Shape heat pipes, the card relies on DrMos, Digital PWM, and Multi Phases design to handle the overclock. Other features include 2GB GDDR5 memory; 256-bit bandwidth; and DL DVI-I, SL DVI-D, HDMI, and two mini DisplayPorts. POWERCOLOR PCS+ HD7850 HAS ANNOUNCED Boost up your gaming PC with factory...

PowerColor on Wednesday announced what it claims is the world's first and only Radeon HD 7970 graphics card with a liquid cooling solution attached. The company's new LCS HD7970 features a pre-installed waterblock provided by EK Waterblocks that has a nickel coated copper base extending over the key components. According to PowerColor, the waterblock is able to keep the GPU cooled to below 50C even under full load. The waterblock comes pre-fitted with high-flow 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch fittings (barbs) with captured O-rings to prevent leaking. As for the card itself, PowerColor took the liberty of... Read more...
Hot on the heels of its announcement of a pair of HD7950 graphics cards, TUL unveiled the PowerColor HD7970, which features a dual 92mm fan design like its PCS+ HD7950. The card also features a SSU-shape heat pipe to aid in cooling and noise reduction, which the company claims can cut excess sound by as much as 15%. The PowerColor HD7970 has a 925MHz core clock, 3GB of DDR5 memory (1375MHz), and 384-bit memory bandwidth and features PCI-E 3.0 support, Eyefinity, DirectX11.1, and CrossFireX support. Ports include DL-DVI-I, HDMI, and a pair of mini DisplayPorts. POWERCOLOR ANNOUNCED HD7970 WITH DUAL... Read more...
TUL brought a couple of new graphics cards to the market with the PowerColor PCS+ HD7950 and PowerColor HD7950. The two cards have almost identical specs. Both have 1250MHz memory speed; 3GB of GDDR5 memory with 384-bit memory bandwidth; support for CrossFireX; and DL-DVI-I, HDMI, and two mini DisplayPorts. The standard card has a core clock of 800MHz while the PCS+ is at 880MHz, and the latter has dual fans, as well. They also both feature PCI-E 3.0 support and AMD’s PowerTune, Eyefinity 2.0, HD3D, and APP Acceleration technology. POWERCOLOR ANNOUNCED HD7950 SERIES FOR NO-COMPROMISE GAMERS... Read more...
With the performance of more mainstream cards on the rise, monitor prices on a downward slide, and support for 5x1 Eyefinity available (sort of), we decided to see what a pair of Radeon HD 6870 cards running in CrossFire mode could do with a quintet of screen out in front. The cleanest way to pull off a 5x1 Eyefinity configuration, without using an array of adapters, is with a card that has at least five, similar outputs, connected to matching monitors. To that end, we got our hands on a pair of PowerColor Radeon HD 6870 2GB Eyefinity 6 Edition cards and five Dell 22” screens with DisplayPort... Read more...
Way back in September of ’09, AMD launched the Radeon HD 5800 series, and along with it officially unveiled its Eyefinity multi-display technology, which now pervades all Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 series cards in one form or another. Leading up to the release of the 5800 series, AMD tried to keep Eyefinity a close guarded secret, so its arrival was a pleasant surprise for most consumers and a not so pleasant one for rival NVIDIA perhaps. Dual and multi-screen gaming wasn’t new per say, just ask die-hard Flight Simulator fans who have been doing it for years.  However, AMD’s... Read more...
