More and more rumors are spreading in the air that AMD may introduce their Radeon HD 9000 as early as in October. The company might skip the 8000 series since they have already sold out Radeon HD 8000 branded parts to OEM. The first Radeon HD 9000 parts we are looking forward to are Curaco and Hainan.
I has been widely reported that AMD will launch their next generation “Volcanic Islands” graphics cards in the 4th quarter of 2013. The 4th quarter of 2013 also happens to be when Battlefield 4 will be released, more specifically October 29th. AMD has purchased the rights to the game for marketing purposes, so it makes sense that AMD would launch their new cards right around the same time the game is released.
It was the last year’s news; NVIDIA was making a latest G2K08 core to power their upcoming graphics card. Many rumors were in the air regarding the new card that whether they would influence the high end or low end lineup of next generation cards and it seems the G2K08 was just a low end chip with high end compute capabilities of the GK110 core that would closed down to the new GT 640 and GT 630 graphics cards.
It looks like NVIDIA will not be releasing any new cards in their 700 series in 2013 after the launch of their GeForce GTX 760 graphics card and indicated by the leaked slide that you see below. This week NVIDIA is supposed to introduce the GeForce GTX 760 Graphics Card, but after that do not expect anymore GeForce 700 series cards to be released in 2013.
Just last month we announced that NVIDIA will be launching their 700 Series cards in May and it looks like Fudzilla has got some exclusive information about the launch of the GeForce GTX 780 and the GeForce GTX 770. The flagship GeForce GTX 780 will launch on May 23rd and it will be followed by the launch of the GeForce GTX 770 on May 30th.
AMD’s latest graphics card the Radeon HD 7990 is expected to launch this week so it is no doubt we would see some benchmarks surface before the official release. Below you will find benchmarks testing the Radeon HD 7990 against NVIDIA’s GTX 690 and NVIDIA’s GTX Titan. The two tests include 3DMark Fire Strike and Battlefield 3 running at 5760 x 1080 resolution. Read on to see the benchmark results!
Today we spent a good amount of time up in MSI’s suite at CES. While they may not have had a whole lot of new products they had their best products on display and gave us a very informative overview of each product. Not only that we did get to see a prototype of a new X79 motherboard that is part of MSI’s new gaming line of boards. If you follow MSI I’m sure you know of their Twin Frozr graphics cards. They had a card from each Twin Frozr line going all the way back to 2009! Want to check this all out? Read on!
I don’t know about you but when I first started to build my own computers all I wanted inside was a 3dfx graphics card. I’m not sure what it was, the awesome advertisements in PC magazines, the high price, or just the hype. Luckily I was able to build a few systems with 3dfx graphics cards before they went bankrupt and were eventually acquired by Nvidia. 3dfx definitely helped change PC gaming. 3dfx will probably always be remembered by computer and gaming enthusiasts so today we take a look back at the 3dfx graphics cards.
