The ASUS EAH5830 DirectCUis a very large example of an HD5830 thanks to a large and efficient cooler designed by ASUS.  Not only does it give the card a rather distinctive look it cools a little more quietly.  [H]ard|OCP's testing has shown that the cooler may not be that much more effective than the stock cooler but it only created concern during a very stressful benchmark, during gaming the card staye

Just how loud is that GTX480

Are we talking about as loud as the screaming classic Delta 80mm's?  Perhaps louder than a FX5800 Ultra or maybe an industrial vacuum cleaner?  The Tech Report thinks that maybe the noise produced by the GTX480 is not as bad as some would make it out to be.  As it turns out a single FX 5800 Ultra was nearly 9 dB louder than a GTX 480 and the 2GB model of the HD5870 is 1dB louder.  Perhaps not as bad as all that after all.

The Masters in 3D

We have been trying out new 3D coverage of the 2010 Masters golf tournament here in the office and wanted to share with our readers quick thoughts and how they can go about watching the sample 3D content if they already have a 3D Vision-ready configuration. You will need a really fast internet connection to get the 10 Mbit stream working but when it does, it impresses.

*Updated* Eyefinity goes curvy!

At a recent AMD professional graphics meeting there were some very interesting applications of Eyefinity technology that I know our readers are going to be interested in seeing. One from Scalable uses four projectors on a curved piece of plexiglass while another from Ostendo uses 2880x900 resolution curved monitors. Enjoy!

The PowerColor HD 5750 Green sports a very large passive heatsink, a very, very large heatsink.  They took advantage of the extra height this card requires by stacking the second HDMI connector above the first as opposed to the side.  The space cleared by that move is taken up by an HDMI port and a Display port, and the power saved by the passive cooling solution means no PCIe power plugs, of either 4 pin or 6 pin, is needed.  No performance was sacrificed in the making of this card and
