Today AMD has launched the R9 280 graphics card. It looks like they are chasing that $279 pricetag that NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 760 holds. The R9 280 is basically a rebrand of the HD 7950, more specifically the HD 7950 Boost with a 8 MHz difference.
Sapphire is working a new upcoming Radeon R9 290X in their Vapor-X series. What is interesting about this card is that Sapphire will be doubling the memory over AMD’s reference design, giving you a total of 8GB of VRAM! This will make the Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X the first consumer-based graphics card with 8GB of VRAM.
NVIDIA is planning on launching two Maxwell-based cards next month. These cards will be the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and the GeForce GTX 750. It looks like the first GeForce GTX 750 has been listed and the listing gives us some details on the card.
Last week we talked about NVIDIA launching the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition and a GeForce GTX 790 and it looks to be true! Both the GeForce GTX Titan Black and GeForce GTX 790 has been listed on foreign retail websites.
We have been hearing a lot about the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti the past week or so. We have learned that it will be based on the new Maxwell architecture and that it is expected to launch February 18th. It looks like it will be joined by a second card the GeForce GTX 750.
We sure have been talking a lot about the GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card lately. It is set to hit the market next month. Synthetic benchmarks have already been leaked, but now gaming benchmarks have been leaked and the GTX 750 Ti has been compared to many different cards.
The GeForce GTX 750 Ti has been rumored to launch on February 18th, but way ahead of the launch an ASUS-branded version of the card has been listed on many different foreign retail sites for around $225 US. The card is listed as the GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 and will feature a factory overclock and 2 GB of memory.
As we pointed out last week NVIDIA is planning on releasing their GeForce GTX 750 Ti February. What it interesting about this launch is that this will be the first card based on the “Maxwell” GPU micro-architecture. It looks like the first performance benchmarks have been leaked by Coolaler.com.
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…
