ASUS as expected has announced their Republic of Gamers ARES III graphics card at Computex 2014. The ROG ARES III is simply an AMD Radeon R9 295X2 in a new form. AMD is not allowing AiB partners to use the R9 295X2 naming unless they use the reference design of the card.
PowerColor is showing off their recently announced Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 at Computex 2014 this week. While most R9 295X2’s are liquid cooled with AMD’s reference cooler Power Color has gone with their own massive triple-slot air cooler.
After multiple delays NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan Z is finally here. It has been officially released today by NVIDIA. The Titan Z is a dual-GPU graphics card that is based on the GK110 architecture. It features 5760 CUDA cores, 480 TMUs and 96 ROPs. There is a total of 12 GB of GDDR5 memory running across a 384-bit interface per GPU.
ASUS is now joining EVGA, Palit and Gainward by offering a 6 GB version of the GeForce GTX 780. Normally we would expect a card like this to be part of ASUS’s Republic of Gamers or DirectCU II lines, but ASUS has actually launched a new brand called STRIX.
Sapphire has just added a new graphics card to their R9 290X lineup. It is the R9 290X Vapor-X Tri-X OC graphics card. The thing that sets this card apart from their other R9 290X cards is that it features vapor-chamber technology to improve cooling even more than than their current cards and this card features a factory overclock on both the GPU and the memory. The card will have a GPU frequency of 1080 MHz (80 MHz over reference) and the memory will be running at speeds of 5.64 GHz (effective). Other features of the card include a pretty sleek backplate, a Sapphire logo that lights up and even changes colors and dual BIOS support. Is this the Radeon R9 290X that you want? Read on as we take a look…
So this more or less confirms that the card has made its way to retailers and they are just waiting for the greenlight from NVIDIA to start selling the card. No word when that will be, but when it happens we will be sure to let you know.
AMD has just announced a $30 price cut for their Radeon R9 280 graphics card. Compared to the Radeon R9 280X the R9 280 has a few differences like a 20% lower clock speed, turbo speed, memory speed and less shaders and computing units.
It looks like the first review of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card has been leaked. It is from Chinese magazine E-Zone who had published the review back on May 8th, the original date of when the Titan Z was supposed to be launched. Looking at the results from their tests you can see why NVIDIA has delayed the card for the time being.
Reports have surfaced that say AMD is working on a new single-GPU graphics card to compete with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 780 Ti and maybe even the GeForce GTX Titan Black. While we expect this new graphics card to have a clock speed bump, it will also leverage high-bandwidth memory (HBM). This new cutting edge technology relies on stacking multiple DRAM dies with dedicated memory paths into a single package. This will effectively cut down on power draw, temperatures and PCB real estate.
NVIDIA was supposed to launch their high-performance GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card this week, but we have not seen any reviews, any release from NVIDIA or seen the card hit retail shelves. As many people have guessed the card has been delayed once again. According to GDM.OR.JP the card has been delayed indefinitely.
