Customer possibly shipped a GTX 465 by mistake

By: Array

There are very few times in life where getting something that's supposedly worse that what you ordered is a good thing. Receiving a video card that has not even been released yet could be one of those times. Imagine the surprise of the guy who was possibly shipped a Galaxy GTX 465, which is not slated for release until June 1st, instead of the GTX 470 he ordered.

He apparently became suspicious when he installed the card and the NVIDIA drivers would not take and he had to change the device id to get it to install. The card identifies with the reported GTX 465's lowered clocks and 1024mb of RAM.

NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround driver delayed

By: Array

ATI already has tech that lets gamers expand their gaming experience to multiple screens. The first time I saw this tech it was cool, but I knew I wouldn't like it because of the image lost to screen bezels.

NVIDIA is hard at work on similar technology called 3D Vision surround. Big green announced today that the driver for the technology is not ready. According to NVIDIA's Tom Peterson the surround driver needs final improvements.

PowerColor putting finishing touches on Eyefinity12 HD 5970

By: Array

Remember that modified HD 5970 from Power Color we first heard about back in April which gave not six, not eight, not even 10, but 12 mini-Display ports for 'Eyefinity12' lovin' ? - A bunch of new images released from PowerColor themselves today let us know it's definitely a reality and is coming to market very soon; most likely being prepared for launch during Computex early next month.

These new pictures show the card for the first time with its cooler assembly mounted and a large and proud "12" stickered on it, of which it deserves to scream out loudly and proudly given its the first of its kind.

ASUS ENGTX465/2DI/1GD5 sighted

By: Array

The third and cheapest member of the GTX 400 series of top-end graphics cards from NVIDIA is launching when Computex gets underway; that being the GTX 465.

 

The first images of a final retail version of the card have leaked out from ASUS, including a box shot and also confirmation of specs. NVIDIA were quick to have the information and images pulled by the source, but thankfully other sites got hold of the good stuff before this occured.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15317_31.jpg

 

Being one of the first GTX 465's out of the gate, the ENGTX465/2DI/1GD5 is of course a referenced designed card. It uses a quiet carbon fibre theme with a basic ASUS logo stamped on it.

New HD 5670 cards coming with more stream processors

By: Array

A chinese website has leaked details of a significantly revised version of AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card coming out very soon. Whilst existing HD 5670's are based on the 40nm redwood core, the new ones will use the larger Juniper core that is used on the faster HD 5750 and HD 5770 cards. It's anyones guess at this stage as to why AMD felt the need to do this to an existing model in its HD 5000 series lineup rather than making it a separate SKU. Too many defective Juniper cores, perhaps?

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15314_07.jpg

 

Juniper gives up to 800 stream processors, but these will be cut back to 640 for the new HD 5670s. That's still a good jump on the 400 available in the redwood core, though.

BFG decide to pull the plug on video card market

By: Array

Wondering why you haven't seen any new graphics cards released from BFG lately? That's because there aren't any; not now and not in the foreseeable future. The company has announced this week that it has pulled the plug on the graphics card market, but it is kicking on with a range of power supplies, notebooks and Phobos desktop gaming PCs.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15312_05.jpg

 

We actually predicted this might happen as far back as the beginning of 2009 following a press release from Galaxy that hinted BFG Tech's solid partnership with mass etailer Best Buy was slipping.

NVIDIA GTX 465 specs and benchmarks leak out

By: Array

After finding out yesterday when NVIDIA plans to officially release its third GTX 400 series graphics card in the GTX 465 (when Computex kicks off), a sample has already made its way into the hands of some Chinese folks over at eNet.

 

As such, they had shared out some interesting info about the card with screenshots of the NV driver control panel that reveal some of the key specs as well as taking it for a spin in several benchmarks to give an idea of expected performance.

Launch date for NVIDIA GTX 465? June 1st!

By: Array

Our VGA gun Shane has learned that the upcoming GTX 465 that gets you a top end NVIDIA DX11 capable graphics card for less dollars will be officially launched on June 1, the day Computex makes its 2010 splash.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15220_33.png

 

He's also been able to ascertain that stock levels won't be an issue come launch, unlike when the GTX 470/480 cards were released. Apparently several manufacturers already have stock in hand of this card and samples are being prepared for shipments this week, giving potential for leaked results on the interwebs ahead of launch.

 

It is not known for sure as to what specifications exactly this card will use. There have been rumours and numbers thrown about, but until samples get in peoples hands none of it can be confirmed, though that doesn't sound like very long of a wait now.
