By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Apr 14, 2017 3:23 am

GALAX has one of the most interesting GTX 10 series cards made with the new Katana design, with the company claiming that the GTX 1070 Katana has a full copper heat sink and vapor chamber cooling, all cooled by the blower-style fan.

GALAX used its new RazorX cooling technology, which is able to cool down the 16nm FinFET GPU and its 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.

Since it's a single-slot graphics card, we have a modified display output configuration with 1 x DP1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0b, and 1 x DVI. GALAX also requires just a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

NVIDIA teases 'it's coming' for April 29

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Apr 13, 2017 12:18 am

NVIDIA is teasing something brand new for April 29... and we have no idea what it is. All NVIDIA is saying is that "it's coming" with a date of 29th April.

 

 

What could it be? A new SHIELD? Shield VR headset? TITAN Xv (Volta GPU)? Consumer HBM2-based GeForce card (I don't think so). The GTX 1180/2080 refresh? Hmmm.

Just as I'm finishing up on my review of ZOTAC's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition, news is breaking that the company has launched its GTX 1080 Ti PGF Extreme OC, and GTX 1080 Ti PGF graphics cards. ZOTAC's new GTX 1080 Ti PGF series cards are exclusive to China, with both cards rocking triple-fan cooling solutions.

NVIDIA Tesla P100 with HBM2 in NVLink, and now PCIe

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Apr 11, 2017 3:09 am

NVIDIA was the first to market with a HBM2-based graphics card with its Tesla P100, but it was limited the NVIDIA's super-fast NVLink interface. The company has now just released the Tesla P100 for PCIe-based servers, rocking some serious power.

 

nvidia-tesla-p100-hbm2-nvlink-now-pcie_10

 

NVIDIA's new Tesla P100 for PCIe rocks 12GB or 16GB of HBM2 RAM at 549GB/sec and 732GB/sec, respectively. Both versions of the card feature 9.3TFLOPs of single-precision performance.

 

nvidia-tesla-p100-hbm2-nvlink-now-pcie_09

 

The big difference between the Tesla P100 in PCIe and NVLink form is that NVLink is capable of a whopping 160GB/sec of interconnect bandwidth, while PCIe is limited in comparison with 32GB/sec.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Apr 10, 2017 2:29 am

aWe've already seen PowerColor's devilishly handsome RX 580 Red Devil graphics card, but now it's time for another tease of a PowerColor card: their upcoming RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample.

 

powercolor-rx-580-red-devil-golden-sample-spotted_04

 

PowerColor's upcoming RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample is a 2.5-slot graphics card, which rocks 6+8-pin PCIe power connectors, and a fully custom design with 6-phase VRM, a backplate, two dip switches for LED control, and the option to change the BIOS from Silent, to OC Mode.

I'm loving the inverted pentagram on the RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample, but I wonder if it'll cast a spell on you half way through a game.

NVIDIA's new TITAN Xp teardown, reveals GP102-450 GPU

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Apr 10, 2017 1:28 am

NVIDIA's new TITAN Xp has caused quite the stir, so much so that I wrote an OpEd on it - asking if NVIDIA were pre-emptively striking against AMD's upcoming Radeon RX Vega. People have already received their new TITAN Xp graphics cards, and are taking them apart - so we can see what improvements, if any, that NVIDIA has on TITAN Xp.

The new TITAN Xp rocks the same Pascal-based GP102-450 GPU as the professional Quadro P6000 graphics card.

AMD Radeon RX 580/RX 570 using Polaris XTX/XL GPUs

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Apr 9, 2017 11:02 am

AMD is not far away from releasing its new Radeon RX 500 series graphics cards, and now the new Radeon RX 580, RX 570, and even the RX 550 have shown up in the launch drivers, secured by VideoCardz.

 

amd-radeon-rx-580-570-polaris-xtx-xl-gpus_07

 

We now know the GPU codenames for the RX 500 series, with the RX 580 using the Polaris 20 XTX, RX 570 uses the Polaris 20 XL, and the RX 550 uses an older Polaris 12 GPU codenamed Lexa Pro. As you can see, there is no Radeon RX Vega graphics card driver here, but it shouldn't be too long now... I hope.

GIGABYTE's new Radeon RX 580 AORUS XTR 8G spotted

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Apr 8, 2017 1:17 pm

The names of GIGABYTE's graphics cards continue to confuse, with their upcoming GIGABYTE Radeon RX 580 AORUS XTR 8G spotted - with this model being one of three that GIGABYTE will have in the AORUS-branded Radeon RX 580 series alone.

 

gigabytes-new-radeon-rx-580-aorus-xtr-8g-spotted_01

 

GIGABYTE's first card in the AORUS series is the Radeon RX 580 AORUS XTR 8G, with a dual-fan setup - with what looks like a 2.5-slot design. If it is, I really don't know why GIGABYTE went with a 2.5-slot card.

 

gigabytes-new-radeon-rx-580-aorus-xtr-8g-spotted_02

 

The next card is the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 580 AORUS 8G, which features a lower-end version of the WindForce cooler - and it should have slower clocks than the XTR variant.
