probably work better as a brick lol
Funny how it looks like a toy
this is probably the biggest version of the 650
Love that little 650!
wow a VGA port, havent seen one of those in sometime
I didn't notice it before , actually many product still come with VGA port, many ivy bridge board still have VGA with DVI and HDMI (or even Displayport), and many screen still has them too for some reason
BTW, this ASUS card looks ugly ..
i meant on a video card directly
Awesome card is awesome.
It wasn't till this generation of GPUs did I start to see a bit of subjective likes with a silicon board. Sure I've had some cool looking stuff in the computer but nothing really looked cool. I guess the only peice that always fancied my eyes was cool looking Air Coolers.
But anyways it was because of the GTX 690 that have opened my eyes up to how awesome some stuff looks. Also a reason why I purchased one.
As for the rest I love how the reference 7970 looks like 50s cars, and as for non reference partner Asus Seems to have it locked down for me with their Matrix/MARS series.
Thinking about buying that one just because it looks good...But god damnit Asus, stop it. Stop it with the need for three slots. Stop It.
EDIT: and the Devils 13 is pretty balls to walls hot looking
I have grown quite fond of the GTX200 series from XFX.
Damn, are those all yours?!
Quadro 6000 SDi.
Holy crap! BNC connectors!
Here's my nomination... behold, the Palit GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo!
Oh damn - LED fans.
lol yup, that card is a monster tho. I like the looks, but in industry it's one of those top end beasts for real time blue screen work. I think it commands a price tag that would make most grown men weep a little, Added to that it uses EEC ram..... Don't think one will be going in my rig any time. Ever.
If they did cards with that style of heatsink over the current make it look big and plastic style ones I think I would be a happier man. Some of these big shrouds in attempting to make the card look more masculine, just end up on the side if ridiculous. It reminds me a lot of the small car modification scene in the uk. You take a car everyone knows as a budget run around, add a sports body kit and a big bore exhaust and pretend your in a racing car.... lol.
Draw any parallels?
Wow, I think this one has to top the lot! Two cards sandwiched together, four slots two physical mobo connectors and lots of output connectors with many BNCs. Damn...
Isn't one of them just a really fancy daughterboard? It would explain the lack of a "big and masculine" shroud common on other high-end cards. But I really like how the picture puts the cards together. It makes the Quadro 6000 look like a car with the BNC connectors acting as exhaust pipes.
Speaking of BNC connectors, I know they were common on high-end/professional/workstation/really fancy CRTs but I haven't really seen them on LCDs.
I've never seen an LCD monitor with BNC connectors, either and I don't think that any were made. BNC was for the analog CRT era.
BNC's are still industry standard, Not for standard displays that's what the HDMI and DVI outputs are for. But for real time Video capture from high end cameras, linked off to Professional multi display outputs. There even more important when your wanting to tweak the image on the fly since you already have the image in it's separate colours. And you can see any tweaks per channel live without adding digital delay all it needs is a variable strength filter in line.
On a more grounded level BNC is used a lot in CCTV, since you can tap the feed to a live monitor, while still sending signal to be captured. Something I don't believe HDMI can do since the digital suffers from amplification. This means the image you see on the monitor is a real time as possible with limited hardware lag.
Here's a link to a BNC LED monitor.
Here's a rather nice picture of a switching unit to switch between feeds for live or recorded programming.
Note this can only switch between 8 sources. And all of those sources could be live!!
Nope the back card is a video in decoder, The middle one is obvious, And the front card is a video out. It's like graphics card porn
lol at the anus part (it's long ago but still)
btw couldn't find any pick but there was a video on motherboards about this xfx small card size of his hand or something.
so new but already is in the league of legends... GTX 670 Dcu 2 TOP
Video in?! I miss the VIVO days. Now I have to get a TV Tuner card if I want to hook up my consoles to my computer for easy image capturing (and easy connection to monitor; no need for an adapter!). Stupid Hollywood and their stupid HDCP.
for some reason I really like the way this one looks
I really enjoyed the box-like structure of the G80/G92 NV cards, and some of the ATI cards with the copper zalman fans:
Separate names with a comma.
