If you can't find a Zotac-brand GeForce GTX 580 videocard that suits your fancy, it's certainly not from a lack of available options. That's because Zotac today announced yet another GTX 580 variant, the AMP2 Edition, which is the company's fourth videocard built around Nvidia's GTX 580 architecture. Zotac also sells an 'ordinary' AMP Edition GTX 580, but unlike that model, the AMP2 doubles the amount of RAM to 3GB and includes a custom cooler outfitted with high-performance heatpipes and "whisper-quiet" dual orange 92mm fans. "Enthusiast gamers demand the absolute best performance available. With the Zotac GTX 580 AMP2 Edition, we are able to boost high-resolution gaming performance while reducing... Read more...
Another week, another new GPU. NVIDIA took the opportunity recently to introduced the GeForce GTX 590, and now ZOTAC is taking a similar opportunity to sell new GPUs based on the new NVIDIA core. The company's calling this their fastest DirectX 11 graphics card, with a pair of Fermi graphics processors, a combined 1024 unified shaders, 3GB of video memory, 3D support and a download voucher for a copy of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. There's no published price or release date, but it'll likely be priced competitively compared to the competition.

When the GeForce GTX 580 arrived, it extended NVIDIA's lead in the single-GPU graphics card market. Although the green team's own GTX 480 previously held the title of fastest single-GPU, its reign was temporary as the first generation Fermi card required some tweaks in order to unleash all 512 shader cores, reduce heat output and power consumption, and minimize noise levels. With these issues addressed in the GTX 580, NVIDIA continues to be a leader in single-GPU graphics performance. AMD's Radeon HD 6970 was initially targeted to take on the GTX 580 in the high end market, but it's obvious now that those expectations were unrealistic. Rather, it's more competitive with the GTX...

NVIDIA continues to flesh out their GeForce GTX 500 series line-up, this time with a new GPU targeted at more mainstream, budget conscious gamers. The new GeForce GTX 550 Ti which is being introduced today, like the other members of the GeForce GTX 500 series, is based upon a refinement and update to a GeForce 400 series GPU (in this case the GTS 450), but there’s more going on under the hood here than a respin and a new transistor mix. More on that a little later, though. The new GeForce GTX 550 Ti improves upon the previous-gen GTS 450 in a number of ways, all of which enhance performance, but the GTX 550 targets a price point and performance level below the GTX 460...

We have been hearing about AMD’s Fusion initiative for what seems like an eternity. In fact, some of the very first posts regarding Fusion hit this site of ours way back in 2006. Many things have happened within AMD since those early announcements and rumors began swirling, most notably AMD’s acquisition of ATI.  However, it was only recently that AMD’s efforts with Fusion have actually beared fruit; at least fruit that’s ready for public consumption. Over the last few months especially, AMD has once again begun aggressively talking up Fusion and showing off a number of Fusion-based products, targeted at various price points and market segments. It was back in November... Read more...
