AMD slices down Radeon 6950 allocation

By: Array

AMD have reportedly cut down the AIB allocations for their Radeon 6950 range. Supposedly the 6950 board allocations were cut and possibly delayed from actual shipment.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17883_371.jpg

 

While this news is not 100% accurate, this is the leaked information we have. The 'word on the street' is that there was a last minute BIOS tweak (possibly to bump speeds or something, maybe to combat the GTX5x0 cards in the wild). Keep in mind that this is not unusual for product introductions - another thing to keep in mind is that there have been zero reports of any hardware problems on any of the Cayman boards.

nVidia launch NVS300 - 8 monitor output support

By: Array

nVidia has launched the NVS300 - the card is primarily aimed at business users rather than the gaming or design professionals. The NVS300 replaces the NVS295 and should offer better performance-per-watt and should give a 25-percent reduction in power consumption.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17869_366.jpg

 

The card is a low-profile design with passive cooling, so it will make no noise whatsoever. The biggest point of this card is 8-output monitor support which is an amazing feat considering it's MSRP is set at $149. The card would represent amazing value for money if used in a stock-trading setup where such a user would use 4, 6, 8, 10+ monitors in a setup.

nVidia's GeForce GTX570 launches in the UK

By: Array

NVIDIA are still riding the success-train of the GTX580 launch (with various countries experiencing way shorter than usual stock levels) and have now launched the GTX570. We talked about this not very long ago with spec details but pricing eluded us at the time.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17867_364.jpg

 

The Palit GTX570 info we posted is still correct - 732MHz core, 480 CUDA cores with shader clocks at 1.4GHz. Pricing is set at £299 including VAT in the UK. This is interesting as it's now £100 more than the GTX470 but £100 less than the GTX580.

Visiontek introduces GPU/NIC hybrid - Radeon 5770 + Bigfoot Killer NIC E2100

By: Array

As I started this news report, I obviously have to choose a category but what do I choose? Video cards or Networking? After reassembling my head from it exploding at the thought of something never seen before (GPU + NIC combined) I thought it was a nifty idea.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17847_358.jpg

 

Sure, it might not sell in the millions and Visiontek won't turn into Apple overnight - but when companies look at a box and think outside of the box, it is great. Visiontek and Bigfoot have co-developed a PCI-Express x16 expansion board that features both a GPU and NIC which is being touted as the "world's first online gaming upgrade card".

AMD explains IQ debate

By: Array

Last week NVIDIA kicked off an IQ wave that has hit AMD and AMD are now finding themselves having to explain their situation. Hexus has sat down with Senior Manager of Software Engineering Andy Pomianowski and Technical Marketing Manager Dave Nalasco from AMD to talk about the situation.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17846_357.jpg

 

Dave started off saying there were some changes in the Catalyst drivers to coincide with the HD6000-series release GPU's, in which image quality was a big part of. At the center of all of this is the Catalyst AI - which controls a large range of settings via a single slider.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX570 outed by Palit

By: Array

NVIDIA are on a roll, and that roll is down a green hill made of money and good times. Palit's sales sheet for the GTX570 has been distributed ahead of NVIDIA's official launch of the upcoming GTX570 on December 7th.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17796_331.jpg

 

The GTX570 has the same number of cores as the older GTX480, but has them clocked 32MHz faster. It's down to 1.28GB of memory from 1.5GB and that 1.28GB of memory is down to a 320-bit bus.

NVIDIA caught with their pants down in IQ tests?

By: Array

It's getting to be quite a kerfuffle lately... these IQ stories, it was only days ago people were accusing AMD of IQ tampering and now it seems NVIDIA has been messing with their own IQ, but it seems a bit sneakier.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17771_15.jpg

 

KitGuru has a lengthy article based on it - where HAWX is tested and when AA is used the IQ is lowered - giving an improvement in performance by 8%.
