Today, Intel released their new Haswell processors which include improvements to the integrated graphics core. We test 17 of the latest games to investigate whether the Intel HD Graphics 4600 is of any use for serious PC gaming.
The ASUS GTX 770 employs the company's well-known DirectCU II thermal solution using heatpipes that directly touch the GPU surface for optimum heat transfer. The card is also overclocked out of the box.
Palit has equipped their GTX 770 JetStream with a 2.5-slot cooler that promises lower temperatures and improved fan noise. The card also comes with a large 100 MHz overclock, which is amongst the highest available.
Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 770 features the company's new WindForce 3X cooler with three fans to keep the card cool. The card is also overclocked out of the box for an extra performance boost.
Today, NVIDIA released their new GeForce GTX 770, which is based on an improved GTX 680 design. The card features higher clocks and the new Boost 2.0 algorithm. It also comes with shiny new 7 Gbps GDDR5 memory, which is a first for a graphics card.
PowerColor's HD 7850 SCS3 is a fanless implementation of the HD 7850, which means that it does not emit any noise while offering enough performance for serious gaming in full HD. With a price increase of $25 over the reference design, it's not too expensive either.
EVGA has engineered a new cooler for their GeForce GTX 780 called ACX--Active Cooling Xtreme. This dual-fan design delivers temperatures and noise levels that match the quiet NVIDIA reference design. The GTX 780 SC ACX is also overclocked, which yields performance higher than the Titan.
NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 780 delivers impressive performance. We put two of them into an SLI configuration to see what you can expect when doubling down on the GTX 780.
Gigabyte's GTX 780 WindForce OC introduces a brand-new triple-slot cooler design that uses improved heatpipe technology. Thanks to a large overclock out of the box and clever thermal engineering, the card ends up faster than the GeForce GTX Titan.
Today, NVIDIA released their new GeForce GTX 780, which is based on the GK110 GPU - just like the GTX Titan. The new card not only inherits the fantastic looks of the Titan, but is also very close to it in overall performance. NVIDIA's pricing is certainly not cheap at $649.
ZOTAC's GTX Titan AMP! Edition comes with increased GPU and memory clocks for an extra performance boost. The package also includes three Assassin's Creed games and a Metro: Last Light coupon. But with pricing of $1139 is it worth it?
MSI's GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Gaming uses the company's famous TwinFrozr dual-fan cooler. In our testing, we see fantastic noise levels that make the card almost inaudible even during heavy gaming. The card is overclocked, too, which makes it a great buy, being just $5 more expensive than the reference design.
Inno3D has engineered a unique GTX 650 Ti Boost using the company's iChill triple-slot, dual-fan cooler. It provides amazing noise levels, which makes the card almost inaudible during gameplay. Temperatures are also much improved, so the triple-slot design certainly paid off. The card is also overclocked and comes at a reasonable $190 price-point.
Today, AMD releases their highly anticipated HD 7990 dual-GPU flagship. It is based on two full Tahiti GPUs running at 1000 MHz. AMD has also worked hard to keep power draw and noise in check, but can this $1000 card compete with NVIDIA's GTX 690 and GTX Titan?
XFX has completely revamped the HD 7790 reference design, optimizing it around their requirements. The R7790 Black Edition OC 2 GB comes at the reference design price of $150, yet is overclocked out of the box and provides twice the video memory. But can its extra memory make a difference?
EVGA's GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SuperClocked comes with a large overclock of 92 MHz out of the box which gives it a significant performance boost over the reference design. Since it's only $10 more expensive than the reference GTX 650 Ti Boost, the card actually offers a better price/performance ratio than the original.
The ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini promises to revolutionize the small-form-factor gaming market. It finally enables you to build a powerful mini-ITX gaming rig that can handle all the latest titles in full HD at highest settings. Our testing shows that there are no compromises to be made in terms of noise and performance.
With GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost having just been released last week, at amazing pricing, we were curious to see how two of these cards in SLI handle our test suite of 17 games. Scaling worked very well and performance easily matched the GTX 680 and HD 7970 GHz Edition, with a much better price/performance ratio.
ASUS has equipped their GTX 650 Ti Boost with a silent Direct CU II cooler and a small GPU overclock out of the box. They also changed the voltage regulation circuity, which results in a 5% efficiency improvement. Pricing is up by a reasonable $10, resulting in a price of $179.
ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost uses a compact dual-fan cooler to significantly improve noise levels and temperatures over the GTX 650 Ti reference design. The card comes at the reference design price of $169, which makes it a great choice for anyone looking for a card in the sub-$200 market.
Today, NVIDIA launches their new GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost offering a large performance increase thanks to the added Boost algorithm and wider bus interface. With a price of only $169, it is the new price/performance king in the sub-$200 segment.
