A little over three months has passed since NVIDIA unleashed its first Kepler-based GPU on PC gamers, known as the GeForce GTX 680. At the time of its arrival, the GeForce GTX 680 was the clear leader in high-end graphics cards. The card offered better overall performance than AMD’s competing Radeon HD 7970 and the GeForce GTX 680 was cooler, quieter, it consumed less power and was cheaper too. Although availability has been tight, in terms of technology, Kepler and the GeForce GTX 680 was Hot Hardware. NVIDIA soon followed up with the more affordable GeForce GTX 670, which like its older... Read more...
We've already covered all of the juicy details of Intel’s Z77 chipset and put a few motherboards through their paces, but there are so many manufacturers with killer boards available based on the chipset, that it’d be a crime if we didn’t round up another stack of them for you. This round of Z77 mainboards consists of entries from ASRock, EVGA, Gigabyte, and Zotac, more specifically the ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional, EVGA Z77 FTW, Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, and Zotac Z77-ITX WiFi...

Zotac has rolled out the green carpet for NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 560 SE graphics card, and as far as we're aware of, is the first company to officially do so. The GeForce GTX 560 SE is the newest member of NVIDIA's GeForce 560 Series, which now includes six GPUs. It's built around the same GF114 core as other GeForce 500 cards, but there are some key differences to be aware of. NVIDIA disabled two SMs in the GeForce GTX 560 SE and gave it just 288 stream processors and 48 texture units. By comparison, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti sports 384 stream processors and 64 texture units.
