Results: Metro: Last Light

02/22/2015 - 20:53

I upgraded my suite to Metro: LL from the original, and it is a nice upgrade in terms of visual quality and enhancements from the original.  The built-in benchmark is used with High Quality and 4X AA enabled. [inline:files/review/2015-02-22/metro-...

Results: Unigine Valley

This is another benchmark released by the fine Unigine people.  It is really stunning to watch and has an amazing view distance.  It encompasses all of the latest DX11 technology, but it is not focused on tessellation as Heaven is. ...

Results: Unigine Heaven 4.0

This particular benchmark nicely shows the performance hit that we would expect to see with varied levels of tessellation enabled.  I tested with it disabled, moderate, normal, and extreme.  We should get a good feeling about how these cards...

Results: 3D Mark Fire Strike

The latest benchmark from Futuremark can certainly hammer on the latest video cards.  I run the tests at the standard setting so we can set a good baseline for how a card SHOULD perform.  AMD and NVIDIA work very hard to tune their products to...

Setup and Errata

02/22/2015 - 20:50

I am comparing this card to the MSI GTX 760, Asus R9 280X, and the MSI R9 270X.  All of these cards are more expensive than the GTX 750 Ti, but not by a whole lot.  This area is very tightly constrained when it comes to money.  An extra $...

STRIX GTX 750 Ti Continued

G-SYNC support is present when using the included DisplayPort connection.  I do not believe that this port supports the latest DP 1.2a+ specification but, depending on how the winds blow with the bundled Adaptive V-SYNC in that standard, we could...

ARM Introduces Cortex-A72, Mali-T880, and More!

02/04/2015 - 00:22

ARM has an interesting history of releasing products.  The company was once in the shadowy background of the CPU world, but with the explosion of mobile devices and its relevance in that market, ARM has had to adjust how it approaches the public...

CES 2015: Samsung Monitors and ATIV Computers

01/10/2015 - 17:52

I was invited to a meeting with Samsung on my last day at CES.  The Samsung Pavilion was absolutely packed, but I was able to see a handful of products that should pique the interest of people that are passionate about their monitor technology....

CES 2015: Intel Releases 14 nm Cherry Trail SOC

01/05/2015 - 20:30

It wouldn’t be CES if there wasn’t an Intel release.  Today they are releasing their latest 14 nm Cherry Trail SOC.  Very little information has been released about this part, but it is the follow-up to the fairly successful Bay...

NVIDIA Announces Tegra X1: Maxwell Hits Ultra-Low Power

01/05/2015 - 01:18

NVIDIA seems to like begin on a one year cycle with their latest Tegra products.  Many years ago we were introduced to the Tegra 2, and the year after that the Tegra 3, and the year after that the Tegra 4.  Well, NVIDIA did spice up their...
