NVIDIA is at it again, taking an old product and renaming it before passing it off as something new. This time, they have taken the old and rather short-lived GeForce 8800 GS and rebadged it as the 'new' GeForce 9600 GSO. Will it help them win the battle for mid-market supremacy? We find out.
Factory-overclocking and customized coolers are two popular ways for graphics cards to differentiate themselves from the competition. Short of featuring a rainbow-colored PCB, Zotac has taken another route with their GeForce 9600 GT DP offering. Check out our review to find out what the Hong Kong-based vendor has up its sleeves.
HIS is renowned for its IceQ cooling system, which is in its fourth generation. We check out the HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ 4 Turbo X to see if the IceQ 4 cooling system can live up to its predecessors. Along the way, we also find out if this is the best Radeon HD 4850 money can buy now.
ATI continues on its spree of introducing new mainstream and budget graphics cards with the debut of the Radeon HD 4550. We took the opportunity to pit it against NVIDIA's comparable GeForce 9400 GT to find out who rules the budget segment.
NVIDIA's recently released GeForce 9800 GTX+ GPU was meant to do battle with ATI's Radeon HD 4850 and we have a fine example here in Zotac's GeForce 9800 GTX+ Zone Edition. Boasting an elaborate water-cooling mechanism, we check to see if the 9800 GTX+ has what it takes to go against the HD 4850 and if Zotac's water-cooling unit actually works.
More overclocked variants of ATI's formidable Radeon HD 4870 have arrived in our labs. And today, we take a look at Palit's latest offering, the Palit Radeon HD 4870 Sonic Dual Edition, to see whether or not that monstrous cooler actually works, and if it confers any advantages over the standard 4870.
Taking an old product, renaming it and then passing it off as new is something that NVIDIA has done in the past. This time, NVIDIA has taken the good old 8800 GT and rebadged it as the 9800 GT, and we take four fine examples to see if there's any discernible difference.
Extending its winning formula to the mainstream, ATI's Radeon HD 4670 is ready to wow the masses with its price and performance. We took a mildly overclocked version from PowerColor to test and here's what we found.
ATI's latest Radeon HD 4870 was released a little more than two months ago, and now, we are beginning to see overclocked versions of the card entering the market. This here is PowerColor's PCS+ HD 4870 1GB GDDR5, which promises to not only run faster, but also cooler. Too good to be true? Read on to find out.
When we reviewed the HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 earlier, we spoke of the R700 card that has yet to arrive. Well, we are pleased to say that it is finally in our labs. Consisting of two RV770 GPUs on a single PCB, we see if it has what it takes to oust NVIDIA's fearsome GTX 280 as the fastest single graphics card.
