Rumor has it AMD is planning a dual-GPU graphics card based on its forthcoming Vega 10 architecture that's due out next year. The card will be aimed at the professional market (initially, at least) where it will serve up an impressive amount of power for professional level content creation and things such as deep neural learning and artificial intelligence.In a previous leak that laid out AMD's GPU architecture roadmap, Vega was pegged for a 2017 launch. It's said to feature 64 Compute Units, 24 TFLOPs of 16-bit computing power, and a 225W TDP. Assuming AMD sticks with 64 compute cores per compute... Read more...
Could there be a better way to end the work week than being introduced to a new generation of graphics cards? It appears that's what NVIDIA has in store—the GPU maker sent out a Twitter message inviting the public to tune into a special event that it plans to stream live on Twitch tomorrow. If you work a typical 9-5 shift, you won't have to worry about missing the event live. It kicks off at 6 PM Pacific (9 PM Eastern), so as long as your commute is under an hour long, you should be home in time to see what NVIDiA has up its sleeve. In the meantime, we have some guesses, all of which start with... Read more...
Beyond the occasional nugget from AMD, concrete details about its forthcoming Polaris GPU architecture are hard to come by. We've mostly had to rely on leaked information and rumors, and if the latest leaked roadmap is to believed, Polaris will replace both the Radeon Fury and Radeon 300 series of graphics cards.The slide shows Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 in place of the Radeon Fury and Radeon 300 series, with Polaris 10 overlapping both. While nothing is yet official, the leaked roadmap, which at least looks legitimate, hints at the possibility of AMD not releasing any rebranded graphics cards as... Read more...
If you thought it was a good time to be a gamer, well guess what? It just got even better. AMD used its 30 Years of Graphics and Gaming celebration to announce a new Radeon R9 200 Series graphics card, the Radeon R9 285. Spec-wise, the card is similar to AMD's Radeon R9 280, but with a newer GPU and a few enhancements that make it a more robust card (we'll have to wait and see if it's faster, too). It's also worth noting that AMD is no longer pimping the Radeon R9 280, and while the Sunnyvale chip designer didn't come right out and say it, reading between the lines seems to reveal that the Radeon...

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...

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...
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...

When AMD announced the Radeon HD 7970 last month, it revealed a new, ultra-powerful graphics card that snatched the single-GPU performance crown from the previous titleholder, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 580. AMD may have staked a claim for the fastest single graphics card with the dual-GPU powered Radeon HD 6990, but its previous flagship single-GPU powered card, the Radeon HD 6970, generally trailed the GeForce GTX 580 in real-world game performance. Although the Radeon HD 7970 didn’t actually go on sale until a few weeks after the initial announcement, there was no doubt it would... Read more...
At the time of the Radeon HD 7970’s announcement, we knew the Radeon HD 7950 would be based on the same GPU and that it would arrive a few weeks after the 7970, but its final specifications and price point hadn’t been disclosed. As it turns out, we’ve had a couple of the cards in-house for a little while now and can finally reveal all of the juicy details. AMD has also provided a fresh set of drivers which reportedly enhance the performance of the 7900-Series cards, so we recorded another set of scores with the 7970 using the updated drivers to show how much additional performance...

Today we'll be looking at a couple of new AMD FirePro workstation-class graphics cards, the FirePro V7900 and FirePro V5900. With the AMD FirePro V7900, professional users are treated to 1280 stream processors, 2GB of GDDR5 memory, and 160GB/s of peak memory bandwidth. The AMD FirePro V5900 provides 512 stream processors, a 2GB frame buffer, and peak memory bandwidth of 64GB/s. Both cards come with single-slot cooling solutions and multiple I/O ports for some multiple monitor action... AMD FirePro V7900 and V5900 Professional Graphics Cards... Read more...
It has been a while since we last evaluated a workstation-class graphics card from the FirePro product line. The V9800 launched in September 2010 and was officially the last card to sport the ATI logo. Since then, AMD has released its Cayman-based Radeon HD 6900 cards for the consumer market, among many other Radeon HD 6000 series cards. It was only a matter of time before the new architecture made its way into the professional FirePro line. Today we'll be looking at a couple of new AMD FirePro models, specifically, the V7900 and V5900. A quick glace below outlines some of the important specifications... Read more...
Today, we're looking at five DirectCU graphics cards from Asus: the GTX 580, GTX 570, HD 6970, HD 6950, and HD 6870. They span the high-end and mid-range spectrum within the GPU market, with representatives from both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon product lines. Of course, all come factory overclocked while sporting massive coolers with redesigned PCBs and enhanced components. If you're into enthusiast level hardware, especially graphics cards, you don't want to miss this article... Asus DirectCU NVIDIA & AMD Graphics Card Round-Up... Read more...
Is there anything sexy about PC components? For about 99% of the population, the answer is probably no. But since you're reading this, chances are that you've fallen in love with the design of a component at least once. Maybe the draw was strong enough to reel you into the world of enthusiast computing, where the skill of overclocking is revered, cable management is a compulsion, and upgraded cooling is not just an option, it's a necessity.   For sure, we've seen our fair share of hot deigns throughout the years, but few have spoken to our inner enthusiast quite like the DirectCU II product...
