    GeForce GTX 650 Ti Specifications Detailed

    Q4 launch? Does that mean early October, late December, ???

    NVIDIA Pioneers New Standard for HPC With Tesla GPUs Built on Kepler Architecture

    A few things... 1- Kind of sad that the K10 has 1/5 the double precision compute power of a 7970. 2- I can see the K20 being GPU compute only, similar to the Intel MIC cards.

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES Fab 8 Adds Tools to Enable 3D Chip Stacking at 20nm and Beyond

    An APU with stacked on-die memory for the GPU is exactly what AMD needs. It will be a while before 20nm is available though.

    More GeForce GTX 690 Details Surface

    I am wondering if both vendors will have enough chips to sufficiently supply the market. AMD's 7970 seem to be plentiful, so they may not have a supply issue. Nvidia's 680 on the other hand seems to be OOS or on back-order every time I check (multiple sites). I think Nvidia will release the...

    What AA are they using? All the slide show a generic 8xAA.

    AMD 2012 CPU Roadmap Unveils FX-X300 and A10 Series

    Looks like they will sell both only until the lower-end Trinity is released in Q3. Then it is all Trinity. A triple core Trinity is not possible. LLano was based on Phenom/Athlon II based "Stars" core so triple was possible. Trinity uses PileDrive modules, each with 2 integer cores, so the...

    Radeon HD 7950 Launch Delayed to February

    It could be possible that most of the chips don't need to be binned down to a 7950. The 7970 has so much headroom that they could have a hard time getting sufficient chips for the 7950.

    AMD Delays FX Series Launch to October, Expands First Wave

    Right from the chart - "Data by unofficial sources, compiled by X-bit labs" You should change "sources" to "unofficial sources" in your article. This is nothing more than combining several rumors out there into this chart and guesstimating on a release date. Really does its job to drive...

    Hmm, the second slide indicates the A series APUs will be 25, 35, and 45 watts? Can that be correct??

    AMD Gaffe Has AIBs Ship Radeon HD 6790 with Too Many ROPs

    How much will performance suffer when the 16 ROP cards are released?

    XFX Radeon HD 6790 Pictured, Too

    I think it depends on the Manufacturer... PowerColor's 6790 only has one 6-pin connector and looks virtually identical to their 6850, except for the display port configuration.

    PowerColor Radeon HD 6790 Pictured, Listed

    Pics on NewEgg shows only one 6-pin power connector. I guess the previous comments about the cards requiring two are wrong. This is good news for power consumption.

    ASUS GeForce GTX 590 3072 MB

    Why oh why do you insist at reviewing at such ridiculously low resolutions for these monsters? These cards are made to drive multiple monitors or the VERY LEAST a single monitor at 1920x1080. Second, how do you calculate performance per watt when you know that the Nvidia cards use power...

    GeForce GTX 550 Ti redefines PC gaming at £119

    Where do you get 6%? Asus review shows 20% Zotac review shows 16% MSI review shows 22% Palit review shows 16% So you are not willing to pay $20 more (WITHOUT REBATE) for a STOCK CLOCKED 6850 even if it is on average 19% faster?

    GeForce GTX 550 Ti redefines PC gaming at £119

    Why is this site giving the review card a score of 8.8 and a "RECOMMENDED!" status? The cards are all significantly slower than a 6850 for the same price! Why would they "Recommend" this card at all????

    GeForce GTX 550 Ti redefines PC gaming at £119

    Looks like NewEgg has them for $149.99 and up. You can get most 6850's for $159 after rebate with a PowerColor 6850 going for $149.99. The 5770 is listed anywhere from $99 to $119 after rebate. There are even overclocked versions of the 5770 going for $119 after rebate. The 550ti barely...

    Thunderbolt Technology: The Fastest Data Connection to Your PC Just Arrived

    Sounds like another FireWire vs USB to me and we all know how that turned out. I don't see a significant need for this by a majority of end users. Besides, it's another chip that has to be utilized, totally new interface, drivers, cables, devices = $$$. I just don't see the point.

    Intel Accelerating Ivy Bridge Unveiling to Computex 2011

    Seems like Intel is trying to limit the impact that AMD's Bulldozer unveil will have at Computex. Didn't Intel do the same thing with SB? Release it early, at CES to try and rain on AMD's Fusion release? To me, this sounds like they are a little more concerned about AMD's products for the first...

    ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti Direct Cu II 1024 MB

    No, the overclocked version of the 560 Ti actually tied the 6950 in your performance comparison. You also stated a the Asus card will cost "Around" $279. Well, according to NewEgg, you can get 3 different 6950's for $289 and some with rebates bringing the price down to $259 with free shipping...

    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti Graphics Card Pictured

    NewEgg has a three (3) 6950's at $279 AR and one (1) at $269 AR. It will be interesting to see how the 6950 1GB performs as well as the price. I can see 6950 1GB @ $240 - $250 with 2GB hovering around $280 - $290. AMD looks to be trying to fill any lineup gaps that the 560 may exploit.
