If you are anybody in the world of graphics card, you are busy pimping your iteration of the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 from NVIDIA. As NVIDIA partners, there really hasn't been much to be excited about for quite a while - AMD has really been dominating the world of enthusiast graphics since September 2009. Galaxy announced their GF100 options yesterday as well!

You know, in truth, I have rarely been a fan of water cooled graphics cards. They are much more complex to install and tend to force you to stick with one GPU for longer than you might otherwise. Just not my style - I'm an upgrade and run kind of enthusiast.
GF100 arrives and brings Fermi in tow
We have been waiting for this day basically since GT200 was revealed: NVIDIA's next-generation GPU architecture. While AMD has been releasing card and card with DX11 support and Eyefinity gaming, NVIDIA has been forced to sit idly by and await its own hardware. The GF100 GPU is finally here as the GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 graphics cards and they are surprisingly potent solutions for gamers!

The new Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 TOXIC sports 2GB of RAM, twice as much as a normal model. That GDDR5 runs at 5GHz effective and the core is clocked to 925MHz, both higher than the reference card. The card is not quite as big as the DH 5970 but it does require more power and takes the six-and-eight-pin
PCIe power connectors familiar to fans of the highest end of GPUs. HEXUS' testing shows that the single GPU cannot beat the dual HD 5970 in most cases and in games that do not benefit from a la

There are many types of HD5770s, from the stock models to ones with custom cooling and factory set overclocks; two of which are up for review at InsideHW. The MSI HD5770 Hawk and the POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX5770 are similar in some ways but vastly different in others. Mostly likely thanks to the improved cooling on the MSI HAWK, they
AMD reaches for gamers
AMD recently spent some time with us telling the story of how its game developer program works; what it does, what it doesn't do and how AMD plans on using its team and technologies to further the PC gaming community. But does the story add up? Can AMD convince gamers that with open physics, open 3D and Eyefinity they are the better player than NVIDIA?

[H]ard|OCP took a system with an HD5970 in it and installed three of the newest games on the market. They then fired them up to see what happened and recorded the results on video. The intent of this video review is to show you exactly what to expect when you try EyeFinity on these games; will their graphics settings allow you to specify EyeFinity resolutions right away or will you have to tweak configuration files in order to enjoy gaming across three screens?

Some interesting pictures found their way to me of an upcoming graphics card from ASUS, the Radeon HD 5870 ROG MATRIX Edition (Republic of Gamers). This card appears to offer quite a bit more in the way of overclocking than nearly any other GPU we have seen to date.
The design on the PCB and cooler is completely custom and offers superior cooling compared to the reference design from AMD.
