When it comes to video cards the entry level segment is not something many people who visit this site might be interested in but for both AMD and NVIDIA it is a very crucial segment that brings in a lot of money. Last week AMD has released 2 new cards in to the entry-level segment that have completely new GPU’s based on the HD 6800 series Barts architecture. These 2 cards are effectively replacements for the HD 5770 and HD 5670 cards. Both cards have increased clock speeds and added stream processors over the previously mentioned cards. Today we will be taking a look at the Radeon HD 6570 512MB video card.
parkle Computer Inc., has been around since 1982. There aren’t a lot of current hardware companies that can boast of being around for over 25 years.

Today I will be looking at the Sparkle Calibre P980+, which is a factory overclocked 9800GTX+. Sparkle has added a very interesting GPU cooler to this card. Will the P980+ impress? Read on to see!
Today I will be looking at MSI’s version of the Radeon HD 4830, the R4830-T2D512 OC. The HD 4830 is ATI’s last new product of 2008, and I suppose the last new card in the Radeon 4000 series. Read on to see what MSI has done with the HD 4830, with a factory overclock and heavy duty power supply with solid state chokes, this card is far from the reference version.
