Calgary, Alberta  - January 28th, 2008 -  Right on the heals of AMD announcing the availability of the ATI Radeon™ HD 3870 earlier this month, CoolIT Systems debuts the third installment in the Reference Series line of liquid cooling systems designed to quietly and effectively cool Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.'s highly anticipated performance graphics cards, the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2.   In recent testing, the liquid cooled cards were stably clocked up to

Sure today might be all about AMD's new Radeon HD 3870 X2 graphics card, but NVIDIA's upcoming 9800 GX2 just feels left out.  And what do self-conscious graphics cards do to get attention?  Take off their clothes
NVIDIA's design uses two separate PCBs instead of one like AMD's new card does, but the effect is generally the same.

AMD R680 - Dual GPU graphics card

AMD is aiming for enthusiast-class performance with their new Radeon HD 3870 X2 card and they want the areas that the 8800 Ultra and GTX from NVIDIA have held onto for a long time now. Can this new dual-GPU card really do that without busting outside the power envelope of them as well?

Hopefully this will soon disappear, but every launch AMD has recently tried doesn't seem to have gone as planned.  This time around, North American reviewers were instructed not to reveal the new graphics cards performance, but across the pond that message never got across.  So we have been seeing the performance of at least one of the cards for about 24 hours now.  The rest of the new family has now been revealed, there are many reviews out there, but s

It seems that maybe the GeForce 9600 GT card, the same GPU that I got my hands on last week, might be delayed a bit due to a manufacturing issue.

RUMOUR HAS IT that the launch of Nvidia's 9600 GT has been
pushed back a few days due to a problem in manufacturing.

According to some NDA-breaking benchmarks on a site in China; PCOnline.com.cn, the new AMD 3870X2 pulls ahead of an 8800Ultra in 3DMark06 scoring 14573 to 10676 with 4xAA and 16AF @ 1280x1024.  The Crysis scores are rather impressive too, although nVIDIA's card manages to keep top spot.

MSIs' NX8800GT-T2D256E-OC goes the opposite way of the Palit GeForce 8800 GT Super+1GB, by halving the normal amount of memory on the 8800GT, as opposed to doubling it.  The Hardware Zone tested it, and found it lacking in certain areas.  If you never plan on showing HD content, or you have a sub 22" monitor that can't go beyond 1680x1050, then you won't be too disappointed with this cards lack of memory.  Unfortunately, the MSRP that Hardware Zone was given is awfully close to the pric

An interesting package hit my door step yesterday and in it were two graphics cards of unknown origin.  Well, not completely unknown since I bought them from a PC Perspective Forums member, but their REAL origin is a mystery.  Why the secrets?  Turns out these cards unreleased GeForce 9600 GT cards.  No, really.  And yeah, I just BOUGHT them.

One of the quickest ways to spend a good chunk of money every paycheque is to upgrade your video card every time the factory overclocked version gets a bump of a few MHz.  It doesn't have to be that way, it isn't that difficult or expensive to do it yourself.  Of course any time you overclock you run into the possibility of killing the part you are pushing beyond spec.  If that risk doesn't deter you, CPU3D has just released a new graphics overclocking guide.  Start your first overclocking project, or

I don't think the lower temperature is the selling point they were going for

The Palit GeForce 8800 GT Super+1GB looks good to begin with, for only $20 you get double the memory of a regular 8800GT.  Unfortunately we have been disappointed in the past with cards sporting 1 GB of memory, and [H]ard|OCP discovered that this card is no different, 1 GB of RAM on a card of this speed doesn't do anything.
