The Evergreen Blossoms again

AMD continues to push the pedal to the floor with NVIDIA right in view over the steering wheel with another GPU release this fall. This time Juniper falls into our laps and brings the Radeon HD 5770 and HD 5750 into the fold to compete against the likes of the GeForce GTX 260+ and GTS 250. Can AMD's new offerings push gaming at $170 and $110 to new levels?

NVIDIA tries to breath life into GT200 again

NVIDIA is out with a set of GPUs for the desktop budget market in the form of the GeForce 210 and GeForce GT 220. Can these options, now running on 40nm process technology and implementing DirectX 10.1 support, compete with the year-old Radeon HD 4670 cards for dominance in the $70 GPU market?

The Setup

After my review of the AMD Radeon HD 5870 graphics card last month that featured a heavy dose of information and videos about AMD's new Eyefinity technology, the one single request I have received the most is for performance results using these games and a multi-monitor configuration. Well I decided to spend some time this week doing just that, so check out our results!

Now, you have seen this GPU before, but ...

This news has been building for a long time - we first saw word that GPU-accelerated Flash video was coming back in June at Computex.  Adobe Flash Player version 10.1 will take advantage of the GPU to accelerate not just video but all Flash applications.  This could be, in my mind, the killer feature that finally pushes GPU computing into the mainstream.  Netbooks and nettops based on the NVIDIA ION chipset will now have a significant performance advantage over vanilla Intel-based netbooks in a widely used and important applic

A week's worth of thoughts on NVIDIA

We spent last week at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference learning about more than just the new GPU architecture NVIDIA was showcasing. In this editorial we take a look at where NVIDIA stands today, what you can expect from them in the near future and how the company plans to hold on to gamers' hearts while striving to build a new market in the GPU computing world.

Afterburners and Big Bangs, MSI is loud and proud

MSI wants you to get the most out of your motherboard so they have stuck an afterburner on it.  You won't have to worry about your fuel-air mix as it is all software but you will have a new way to overclock your graphics card.  The hardware monitoring interface is rather attractive and having various overclocking profiles available at the touch of a key is rather handy.  Does it have a shot at unseating the king of GPU OC tools, RivaTuner?  Read on at the Guru of 3D and find out.

GT300? Yes please

NVIDIA is revealing details today about its upcoming GPU architecture, codenamed Fermi. This new design offers a lot of great new advancements for GPU computing as well as gaming, though details on performance are still pretty slim. The GPU will implement 512 CUDA cores on a 3.0 billion transistor die. That got your interest up?

Evergreen makes its second appearance

Last week we saw the introduction of AMD's new Evergreen architecture with the release of the Radeon HD 5870 graphics card and we follow that up today with the lower cost variant, the Radeon HD 5850. This card still has 1GB of memory and requires a pair of 6-pin power connectors, but for the money, it looks like the card to beat.
