RumorTT: ARM to buy NVIDIA?

By: Array

I've posted previously about this, but the rumors aren't dying... obviously there could be something happening, but until it does it stays in rumor land for now.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17762_320.jpg

 

NVIDIA don't have a CPU, they only have dedicated GPU's/Tegra range - this puts them between a rock and a very, very hard place come next year when AMD launches their Fusion APU range. With the integrated graphics exploding like there's no tomorrow, it is paving the way for a completely different market than we're used to.

RumorTT: AMD Radeon HD 6990 dual-GPU specs leaked?

By: Array

It's good to see both companies are on the dual-GPU hill this year. Last year AMD (well, back in 2009 it was ATI) were dominating the dual-GPU world with their 5970. Even now, it's still one of the fastest VGA cards in the world (it doesn't matter the amount of cores, just like a CPU).

Now there's a leaked slide out, with specs of the 6990.

NVIDIA preparing dual-GPU GF110 - flexing some green muscle

By: Array

Hail to the king, baby! NVIDIA have been quite the busy green little bee this year, and now news is circling that a dual GF110 based GPU is on it's way.

Enter, GTX595. It's a single PCB based solution, the card looks to have 3 DVI slots - which should handle 3D Vision Surround from the single card (which is a major hurdle for NVIDIA at the moment in regards to multi-monitor tech, NVIDIA's solution requiring SLI).

ASUS GTX580 sets new world records - says Hasta La Vista to previous record

By: Array

Thought your 3DMark score was good enough? Well, don't read on further dear reader.

 

ASUS are proud to announce a new world record in Futuremark's 3DMark Vantage. Featuring ASUS' innovative hardware designs and the skill of top overclocker NickShih, the combination of the ROG Rampage III Extreme motherboard, Intel's Flagship 980X processor and Voltage Tweaked GTX580 in SLI broke the 70K barrier with a score of 71,167**. This world record continues to show why ASUS is the 1 choice for overclockers and gamers those looking for the absolute best in performance.

Using things found around the house (may or may not be true) he overclocked the ASUS GTX580's from their stock 782MHz clock speeds to a pretty insane 1099MHz using LN2 (the stuff that ripped the T1000 into little pieces in Terminator 2).

AMD 28nm GPU's coming in second half of 2011

By: Array

Wanting to know what to buy for Christmas, next year? Well, wait no more - a 28nm based AMD Radeon GPU perhaps?

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17587_4.jpg

 

Supposedly - 28nm AMD chips will be hitting the shelves in 2H 2011, otherwise known as Southern Islands - TMSC is still needing to tape out 28nm (which it hasn't so far) and even if they did, production won't be ready until the second half of next year.

By: Array

The newest AMD cards are about to get a whole lot cooler as Sapphire has announced their TOXIC line of 6800 series video cards. The GPUs are build on the stock 6800 model cards but are receiving stock overclocks and the popular TOXIC cooler treatment.

The HD6850 TOXIC is overclocked to 820MHz on the core and 1100MHz for the memory to give an out of the box performance boost. Two DVI, one HDMI, and two DisplayPort connections are included for maximum connectivity and support for up to four monitors in Eyefinity. Sapphire is also offering access to their new TriXX overclocking tool as a free download for Sapphire Select Club members for even more tweaking and performance.

By: Array

AMD is getting closer to the elusive Christmas sales - without a high end replacement for the smash hit Radeon 5k high end cards. This is set to change for the better in the next month with a release of the NDA on the 13th of December.

Sources say AMD HD 6970 will beat NV GTX 580

By: Array

I don't think that any of us will be surprised that "sources" are saying that the AMD HD 6970 will beat the new NVIDIA GTX 580 in performance. What else would AMD say after all? It's not as if they can say, "our next card will suck." I like it when these two companies get to goading and competing with each other for the performance crown, and so should you.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17515_1.jpg

 

Competition like this is when we get new cards with even more performance as they trade the world's fastest title back and forth. The only downside is that the new cards seem to get more expensive each time they launch. The upside is a new faster card means price cuts on older hardware. Kit Guru cites sources that claim the HD 6970.
