What’s faster than Visiontek’s new Radeon R9 290? Not the 290X, according to the graphics card maker. VisionTek used CES to formally launch the CryoVenom, a liquid-cooled R9 290 that can be user-overclocked for a speed boost of (according to VisionTek), up to 24%. The card’s one-year warranty covers the overclocking, provided you stay within the speeds VisionTek rates it for, of course. VisionTek says its CryoVenom R9 290, which retails for $550, has a GPU speed of 1175MHz and memory speed of 1450MHz, all while keeping temps low (125 degrees Fahrenheit in VistionTek’s tests)....

Their cards are known for steadying jitter and generally providing a better,... Read more...

VisionTek Xtasy 9800 Pro 128MB AGP Back from the Dead with a Whole New Attitude By - Jeff Bouton July 1, 2003 It wasn't that long ago that VisionTek was one of the top manufacturers of nVidia based graphics cards.  The Xtasy line offered a wide range of solutions, from the budget MX series, to the top card of the day, the GeForce 4 Ti4600.  Then suddenly VisionTek was "gone".  Those of us who were familiar with the company were quite surprised.  There were a few rumors of trouble brewing, but no major signs that they had planned to cease production of their "Xtasy"...

The VisionTek XTasy GeForce4 Ti 4400 Compelling performance without the price tag By -Dave Altavilla April 9, 2002   If variety is the "spice of life", then it is safe to say that NVIDIA is cooking up some "Three Alarm Chili" these  days and it's guaaaaraaaanteed (insert thick Cajun Bayou accent here), to make you thirsty for a cool drink of 3D polygon pushing refreshment.  There are so many flavors of GeForce4 product in the retail channel, the unsuspecting consumer could get down right befuddled at the myriad of choices and performance levels, offered by the...

The VisionTek XTasy Titanium Series Line-up Taking Graphics to the Next Level By - Jeff Bouton November 1, 2001 Just in time to compete with the long awaited new Radeon's from ATI, nVidia has release their latest version of the popular GeForce GPU's named "Titanium."  By now, it is fairly obvious that when it comes to competition, nVidia doesn't like to be in second place, and with their latest offering being released in such a timely fashion, their position should be safe.  By fine tuning the existing manufacturing processes of both GeForce2 and GeForce3 GPU's, nVidia has been...

The Visiontek GeForce3 Powered by NVIDIA and made in the USA By Dave Altavilla 5/24/2001   "Board Stuffing", that's what the industry affectionately calls what the folks at Visiontek do as their core business unit.  Otherwise known as "Contract Manufacturing", in a nut shell, Visiontek will take a customer's "Bill of Materials" also known as a BOM (lots of new lingo here eh?), procure the raw parts (chips and circuit boards) and then assemble the product.  At that point they may even box it up and ship it to their customer's end customer.  This...
