Last week the guys over at PCWorld got their hands on the latest 3DMark test that actually shows how much more efficient the Windows 10-only API than its predecessor DirectX 11. Microsoft has said that DirectX 12 should have more than double the performance of the current DirectX 11 API, but looking at these results it shows quite a lot more!
AMD recently showed industry partners, likely add-in board partners a presentation on the upcoming Radeon R9 390X. The presentation was leaked to the web via photographs taken of the slides and they look quite legitimate. The first slide shows the official specifications of the card. The first thing that sticks out is that the R9 390X WCE (water-cooled edition) will have 4096 stream processors! That is quite a jump compared to the 2816 the R9 290X has.
Well it looks like the guys over at VideoCardz have revealed the full details of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 and have provided test scores before the card launches on Thursday. We have the full run-down for you so if you are looking to pick this card up when it launches read on!
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960 is supposed to launch on the 22nd of this month, but it looks like performance numbers of the card have been leaked out! The performance numbers come from Chinese PC community PCEVA. It looks like the card was installed on a test-bed that was driven by a Core i7-4770K that was overclocked to 4.50 GHz.
The first performance review of NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce 970 graphics cards was published. It looks like it was a mistake as the review was soon taken down, but we were able to grab most of the slides to show you performance comparisons between NVIDIA’s new GM204 silicon, the older GK110 and AMD’s Hawaii.
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.
It looks like some Chinese retailers did not pay attention to NVIDIA’s NDA for the GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card. Below we have a full listing of specifications for the card, which for those who are wondering the Titan Z will have 5760 CUDA cores, a base clock of 705 MHz and will boost all the way up to 876 MHz.
After experimenting with different options for fan blade design, Zalman has taken cue from the scientifically proven “shark fin” blade design that many manufacturers have adopted. This design is proven to reduce turbulance coming of the back side of the blades. With reduced turbulance, the blades are more stable, wear less on the bearings, and noise is significantly reduced.
There have been conflicting reports about AMD’s upcoming Kaveri APU. Some people think it will release in February of 2014, while other say we will see it much sooner. Well a few different chinese sites have released performance results from near production samples which makes us think that we may see Kaveri before the end of the year.
AMD had just announced their Radeon R9 290X yesterday and today it looks like the upcoming Radeon R9 290 stock and overclocked performance has been leaked by Overclockers.co.uk. AMD is set to release the R9 290 in just under a week on October 31st.
