According to reports NVIDIA is planning to launch their GeForce GTX 750 Ti in February. While that is great news the really interesting thing about this report is that the card will be based on the Kepler architecture, but rather NVIDIA’s latest Maxwell GPU architecture.
Here we are back with another graphics card review. Today we are taking a look at ASUS’s R9 270X DirectCU II Top Graphics Card. AMD’s R9 270X cards are of course based off the same 28nm Pitcairn GPU that we saw in the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition graphics card. As the name of this card indicates it will feature’s ASUS’s own DirectCU II cooling solution, which should offer better thermals than AMD’s stock cooler while also producing less noise. This is also a TOP edition card so it is factory overclocked with the core clock being bumped up from 1050 MHz to 1120 MHz. The 2 GB of onboard GDDR5 remains at the same 5600 MHz (effective) as the reference design. Is this the R9 270X that you are looking for? Read on to find out…
About a month ago we talked about AMD working on a dual GPU graphics solution based on their “Hawaii” architecture. Proof of this was in AMD’s driver package, but this card may never make it to market. On the other side NVIDIA is said to be working on a new dual GPU solution of their own, the GeForce GTX 790.
Several manufacturers prepare for the upcoming CES 2014 and it seems as if MSI has got its hands all full with a range of products falling under the Gaming lineup that need some introducing on the much awaited event. MSI preparing to launch the Radeon R9 270X Gaming ITX and Radeon R9 280X Gaming with 6 GB VRAM.
PowerColor has been a leading name in the list of AMD manufacturers and they just recently previewed their Radeon R9 290X PCS+ which is going to be launched soon. This card includes triple fan cooling solution which will protect from heat and cool the AMD’s flagship Hawaii chip. We should be expecting the non reference models of the Radeon R9 290X by next week and it is most likely that they will generate better cooling and overclocking performance.
The GV-R927XOC-4GD is available in a standard edition and there is another version which features the Battlefield 4 Origin key. This one comes with a GDDR5 memory of 4 GB and has been laid across a 256-bit wide memory interface. The memory has been clocked at a speed of 5.60 GHz and this generates a bandwidth of 179 GB/s.
A variant of the Radeon R9 270X Dual-X graphics card has recently been released by SAPPHIRE, with 4 GB of memory which is twice the amount offered in standard memory storage. This ensures that the card is perfectly suited for the high end games such as Battlefield 4 since it meets all the system requirements.
There is no doubt about the fact that the iGame GTX 780 Kudan is absolutely a beast as far as power is concerned and only a few days back it was announced that Colorful is also on their way to releasing its very own flagship iGame Kudan edition of the GTX 780 Ti. Now we have some news which confirms that the iGame has released the GTX 780 Ti Kudan.
HIS is preparing their latest Radeon R9 290X IceQ X2 Turbo Edition graphics cards. Information on this card has been leaked as it was listed on Overclockers UK. The card should be available sometime in 2014. The card features HIS’s IceQ X2 cooling solution and has factory overclocked specifications.
ASUS has recently made an announcement for its Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II series of graphic cards, and this series will incorporate a model that is going to stick to the AMD-reference clocks (which can go up to a 1000 MHz core, 5.00 GHz memory). Another model will also form part of this series and it is the one that offers factory overclocked speeds of up to 1050 MHz core, and 5.40 GHz memory and this one is the DirectCU II OC.
