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.

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.

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%.

AMD responds to NVIDIA's IQ complaints

By: Array

When things get hard (not being able to supply stock for a popular card) tactics change - things get nasty. There have been complaints of AMD lowering Image Quality in certain games to gain extra frame rates (and in turn, making their cards seem like they're performing better than the competitions cards).

But, most people either forget, or remember back in 2003 NVIDIA pulled the same stunt by tuning drivers to perform better in benchmarks.

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.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17642_5.jpg

 

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.
