Galaxy takes on the GTX 460

Galaxy has a slightly overclocked GeForce GTX 260 1GB card on the table today that sells for about the same price as the reference speed cards today. Of course, we didn't leave good enough alone and pushed the clocks quite a bit more without a problem. And can dual GTX 460s over take the GTX 480 in terms of performance per dollar?

See [H] upgrade their graphics and feel the envy

Apple drops NVIDIA from most default systems, brings on ATI

Today should have been a good day for NVIDIA - StarCraft II was released and only their cards support anti-aliasing out of the gate AND the new Fermi-based Quadro graphics offer a significant jump in performance over previous generation parts and AMD's FirePro options.  Apple apparently had other plans though and has updated its entire line of iMac and Mac Pro computers with a collection of new hardware that apparently leaves NVIDIA out in the cold.

The New Quadro Lineup

The new NVIDIA Quadro 5000 professional graphics card finally brings the Fermi GPU to the world it was originally designed for: content creators. Even though a whole new line of parts is being introduced it is really the 5000 model that will see the brunt of attention with a modest (!!) $2250 price tag. Performance might lag in gaming (clocks and specs are under a GTX 465) but in the world of CAD, design, animation and more the NVIDIA card has the edge over AMD's FirePro line.

If you haven't checked out my wicked-awesome StarCraft II Performance Review, you definitely should, and where the hell have you been?  The game is out now so you might already have it in your system, but now you should be even more interested in my results and the news we have for you tonight.

X-bit Labs took a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD9 Super-Mainboard and attached two different sets of GPUs for testing, four Radeon HD 5870s in one case and three GTX 480s in the second.  This board sports a pair of Nvidia NF200-SLI chips so there are plenty of PCIe lanes to go around and with the addition of a Xigmatek 1500W PSU to the installed Zalman 1000W PSU there is 2.5 kilowatts of power available for the system.  While the results in and of themselves are inc

The Gigabyte HD 5770 Super Overclockhas two rather hefty claims that it needs to match, the first is the claim that this card is 13% better than a stock HD 5770 and the second is that it is 4.3% better than a GTX 260.  It's GPU is clocked 50MHz higher than the reference card at 900MHz but the memory remains unchanged at 4.8GHz effective, so on paper it does not look terribly impressive.  [H]ard|OCP did manage a better overclock with som
