Jumping Right To It
Okay, we admit it, this is too soon. But AMD has the world abuzz about the upcoming Catalyst 7.10 'Shoot-em-up' drivers and we need to see how they affected our round up of DX10 titles we tested last week. Here's the update.
DX10 Gaming Arrives
DX10 gaming is finally here and we take all the current titles out for a spin with high-end cards from NVIDIA and AMD to see which ones come out on top.
The End of Rasterization
We have been interested in the idea of raytracing replacing rasterization for real-time computer graphics for quite a while. At a recent event held by Intel, we were able to meet with a team at Intel dedicated to advancing the performance and quality of raytraced gaming.
A Brief Historical Background
Diamond is back in the graphics game again, this time with the first 1GB graphics to hit the consumer market. Their new Viper HD 2900 XT 1GB card attempts to make the latest AMD GPU look more appealing than we originally saw it at launch time. Does doubling the memory to 1GB really help?
XLR8 Your Gaming Experience
PNY is getting back in the graphics card game again and their latest 8800 GTX XLR8 Overclocked Edition model looks to entice the enthusiasts back into their fold.
BFG's ThermoIntelligence Technology
The BFG 8600 GTS OC2 ThermoIntelligence graphics card brings a new cooler design to NVIDIA's mid-range graphics card with higher clock speeds as well. Does it out perform the stock cards enough to warrant the price gap?
The 2600 XT
AMD has finally pushed the big red button on the Radeon HD 2600 XT, 2600 Pro and 2400 XT. We take then all for a whirl and see where they end up. CrossFire is tested too!
DX10 Benchmark Fiasco
With the recently release of two DX10 demos onto the scene, both being pushed by one side of the graphics rivarly, what should you know about relations between AMD/NVIDIA and the developers that make the games you are spending your hard earned cash on?
Introduction and Architecture Overview
The AMD Radeon HD 2900 XT is the second DirectX 10 part to from AMD/ATI's graphics division though it is the first version to see light on the PC. Can the power hungry R600 core keep up with the aged and refined G80?
AGEIA's PhysX in Need of Resuscitation
AGEIA is hoping that the release of the FREE CellFactor: Revolution title will help push their cause for hardware physics in gaming. But does the title live up to hype and can it possibly help the AGEIA PhysX hardware??
The NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra
NVIDIA has just one-upped itself with the new 8800 Ultra graphics card and left AMD's Radeon GPUs in the dust once again. How much faster could the Ultra possibly go??
Introduction and the 8600 GTS XXX
XFX has brought their XXX offering of GeForce 8600 GTS and GT cards to the PC Perspective testing bench to see how they hold up to the recent competition. We also take the time to run some SLI benchmarks with both GTS and GT models.
The NVIDIA G86 Core
NVIDIA's GeForce 8600 GT is being displayed today by EVGA in their "Superclocked" model that is overclocked out of the box. Can this card compete with the ATI line up better than the 8600 GTS did?
NVIDIA Shows G84 and G86, Finally!
The new 8600 GTS graphics card will bring DX10 support as well as a completely new video processing engine to the mainstream graphics market for the first time. Can the ATI offerings keep in gaming performance though and ruin the party?
OnAir Solution has a new HDTV tuner that connects to your PC or notebooks through a USB connection and comes with software for some PVR action as well.
EVGA's Superclocked 8800 GTS 320MB
EVGA has turned up the heat on the competition with a superclocked model of the new 8800 GTS 320MB graphics card. Can the extra speed help the 8800 GTS 320MB find a place in your next system upgrade?
Vista Transition Going Well
AMD provided us with some interesting information on their current ATI Catalyst Vista driver, its future and how the number of times it has been downloaded simply blew my mind!
A new lower priced 8800
Today NVIDIA is announcing the availability of the new GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB graphics card -- the same GPU we have seen in the existing 8800 GTS with half the memory and a lower price. Is it worth the money to drop half of your on-board buffer??
XFX's Overclocked 8800 GTX
XFX has taken the already impressive 8800 GTX GPU and overclocked it to sell as their coveted XXX Edition! No porn, but plenty of blazing fast gaming is to be seen!
NVIDIA Speaks Out About Vista Support
NVIDIA has been catching a lot of flack for their minimal driver support under the newly released Windows Vista OS. We sat down with the VP of Software Engineering to get some insight on what is causing the delays and what you can expect for future driver revisions.
