    An Epic Fury X Review : Quad Fury X vs Quad TITAN X

    lol well this seems less 'photoshopped-like' I guess ;)

    An Epic Fury X Review : Quad Fury X vs Quad TITAN X

    Surely I have. No, precisely I "had" those cards.

    An Epic Fury X Review : Quad Fury X vs Quad TITAN X

    Sorry for such an arrogant title ;) I'm from a small forum in Korea and recently wrote a review on AMD Fury X - not only the article about Fury X itself alone but also about its crossfire configuration as well as the competitor's. I carefully guess this is the first 4-way crossfire/sli benchmark...

    Gaming at 5K : GTX TITAN Z Review

    About a couple of month ago, I was wondering what's 5K and why it was mentioned in official GTX TITAN Z presentation at GTC 2014. In the presentation I'd watched, the GTX TITAN Z is described as "the first graphics card that is 5K-Ready". From this, I planned to test several highest-end graphics...

    Test of CPU for Gaming : 30 CPUs compared

    I tested & measured gaming performances of "all" properly-existing CPUs in the market. Criterion for determining 'properly-existing' is that, a product shouldn't be being replaced by latter SKU at the same price level(ex: IVB is replaced by Haswell). Hope that could help those who are...

    Radeon R9 295X2 Review : VS TITAN-Z

    After a couple of days NVIDIA announced its newest and finest graphics card named GeForce GTX TITAN Z, AMD confirmed that a successor of Radeon HD 7990 is en route to its launch. Maybe its code name is a bit familiar to us; "Vesuvius" was originally designate the name of a volcano located in...

    Ye....................................................up, but in many cases I (literally) purchase what I need to test, or borrow from distribution channel. Review a thing prior to its NDA is always (but very hard to reach) my dream. Besides, if someone get a sample before embargo, such...

    Umm.... how can I explain properly... let me see. I'm a half-professional / half-freelance "reviewer" (I tested computer hardware -mostly graphics card- , wrote articles and send them to several media (in Korea) and they give me money. (How simple ;)!) Of course I'm curious about those products...

    Thanks for reply :) Well, I regard 7990 also was a pretty good graphics card (since frame pacing driver was launched) when we solely consider about the performance. But I also agree some with you when it comes to a matter - thermal / acoustic problem. Then, yes, 7990 is (relatively) less...

    Right. Lower-than-expected performance of TITAN-Z is only because of its low frequency. If we put the full spec of 2 x 780Ti or 2 x TITAN Black then the result (through the calculator) surely implies somewhere higher than the speculative performance of Vesuvius mentioned above. Thanks for reply :)

    :) Now you sure that I'm not a "BOT". My mother language is Korean, and I actually am not familiar with English. This is only because I learn English by textbook, this kind of manner (of greeting) such as "Hello dear" or "Long time no see" just look familiar to me. Except for that reason...

    Thanks for reply, and you touched my achilles tendon pretty directly ;) Yes. I have never been able to make a quantitative model for those who aren't directly related to 'major' variables such as SP count or clock speed, and of course, among them, CF/SLI scaling resides. My work is just for an...

    I've been preparing an enourmous (literally) article covering all CPUs currently available in the market in aspect of their gaming performance. From Core i7 to Celeron, 4960X to G1820 & FX to Kabini, I'll check every frame-per-sec on every popular game title on every different CPU. I guess it'll...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti (Maxwell) Review

    Today, NVIDIA introduced its next-generation graphics architecture "Maxwell", first as a replacement of entry-level product of current generation, GK107 based on Kepler architecture, namely GM107. (M in its codename refers Maxwell as well as K in GK107 means Kepler) Recently (for more than a...

    AMD Radeon R7 265 Review

    Five days ago, AMD launched a newbie expected to aim performance-price niche between the fastest of R7 series and the cheapest of R9 series where exactly its two-year old 7850 lies in, namely R7 265 based on Curacao Pro GPU. By introducing R7 265 AMD intends both to expulse oldies out of its...

    AMD Kaveri Review : Focused on HSA Features

    After I'd dealt with Kaveri's Processor Graphics thoroughly, I focused on its HSA features which as of today have little meaning for everyday computing but also are believed to provide wider chances to HPC-level GFLOPS in sub-$200 chips. (A full CPU-aspect review on Kaveri is here ...

    Kaveri review : tested 13 recent games, vs Intel Iris Pro / Hybrid CF included

    Actually I ran all those benchmarks prior to Kaveri's embargo is lifted. Only translating them in English takes that much time thank to my poor English ability. Anyway, let's have a look: My review consists of two parts - Part 1 is for Processor Graphics inside Kaveri while Part 2 is being...

    Crossfire vs SLI - 280X/280/270X/7850 vs 770/760/660/650 Ti Boost

    About a month ago, I posted the article <Crossfire vs SLI : Flagship Gang Fight> which tested 4 flagship VGAs from two major manufacturer, AMD and NVIDIA - R9 290X, R9 290, GTX 780 Ti and GTX 780 with single, dual, triple and quad Crossfire / SLI configurations. If we could ignore the issues...

    A hint on new king : GeForce GTX 790 and its performance calculated

    (Contact : leedaeguen [at] kaist.ac.kr) AMD and NVIDIA compete a balanced fight since Q4 2013 with their newest flagship silicons namely Hawaii and GK110. And this kind of frame might last a couple of quarters since transition to 20nm fabrication process, which is possibly a key to next...

    A full Hawaii = 3072SP?

    Well... I'm trying to build a block for a simple numeric. (Calculating die area and reverse-engineering the Hawaii GPU) Many clues drive me to one thesis that a full Hawaii GPU employs 48CU which is equivalent to 3072SP / 192TMU while ROP/memory part remains unchanged. Steps are following: -...

    [Crossfire vs SLI] 780Ti/780/290X/290 x Dual/Triple/Quad

    Aw... thanks for comments! Since the original version was written in Korean(which is merely recognizable to most of you guys) I want to recommend you to use Google translation service or Bing's equivalent or whatever similar until I rewrite and re-upload this article in English. I guess this...

    [Crossfire vs SLI] 780Ti/780/290X/290 x Dual/Triple/Quad

    Hello guys. I'm a newbie on this forum. Glad to post this thread here. I tested four flagship single-GPU graphics cards scale one to four respectively, along with AMD/NVIDIA's existing 2-GPU SKUs such as 7990, GTX 690 and ASUS 760 MARS. Test presets are as follows : 1920 x 1080 without AA...

    Triple- / Quad-CF scaling problem under Crysis 2 DX11

    Thanks for reply, and I'd already checked this with a variety of CPUs (from i3 2100 to i7 2600K, including Thuban and FX-8150) and lower res/options though I didn't attached data thereof. Trust me! It seems obvious there's a kind of 'lock' or something... Not sure whether this' from Catalyst or...

    Triple- / Quad-CF scaling problem under Crysis 2 DX11

    I ran Crysis 2 DX11 with my 6970 x 3 as soon as the 1.9 patch was released, and the results were as follows. (Original post: http://udteam.tistory.com/350) It seems normal when DX11 mode is disabled, but once it turns on the CFX scale is bounded by 2. A few days after I reported this...

    Crysis 2 DX11/HighResTextures and 3-way CFX problem

    Hi. I just patched my Crysis 2 to v1.9 and got obtained DX11 / Ultra spec and High resolution textures. I tested newly-added options and compare them with late-highest setting, Extreme option. Here's the result. My system is as follow: CPU: Phenom II X6 @ 4.2GHz / NB 2.8GHz Mainboard: MSI...
