The hardest part of building a PC is picking the parts, especially when everyone around you seems to have an opinion. And no flame war is more prevalent than the NVIDIA snobs vs the AMD fanboys. What’s really going on with these two companies, and which card should you get?
This year, I bought myself an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 graphics card. It was time to upgrade. And I was pleasantly surprised to find I could buy a mini version of one of the best cards ever made. Now, I can potentially fit my beefy gaming PC into a console-sized case. But a new card from AMD is about to do small and…
Two years ago, Nvidia announced its original Titan graphics card, a bad-boy built on the company's Kepler technology and for a time the most powerful card out there. Now, the Titan X is here and it's ready to reclaim the throne.
If you buy video cards, chances are you have a lust for power. No respectable PC builder doesn't at least covet insane high-end cards, even without ever really considering them. Well here's a new sucker to salivate at, the 11.5 teraflop, water-cooled AMD Radeon R9 295X2. The new coolest card you have no reason to own.
Nvidia'sTegra K1 is damned pretty for mobile tech, but the desktop team hasn't just been sitting around waiting for Tegra to catch up. Say hello to Maxwell—the new architecture on the desktop side—and the GTX 750Ti. It's a tiny little sucker that's worth its weight in watts.
Nvidia's kicking off this year's CES madness with the Tegra K1, the first Nvidia chip with freaking 192 CUDA cores. Does that sound like a desktop thing, not mobile? It sort of is. According to Nvidia this bridges the gap between Kepler-based desktop cards and the mobile-based Tegra chips. Not just Tegra 5 but like…
Nvidia's GTX 600 series has finally hit the $300 mark, putting it in the acceptable price range of everyone who doesn't have permanent WASD impressions stuck to their hands. The GeForce GTX 660 Ti is out today, and will also come with a free copy of Borderlands 2.
Nvidia's been holding AMD slightly under the water lately, but if AMD's newest Radeon beast performs as well as it looks like it could, the tables are turned. Is this the best possible GPU you can buy?
PC laptops can be crazy cheap, but there are lots of good reasons to spend a little more. Our friends at Laptop Magazine explain that you'll get a big boost in performance if you're willing to splurge on better hardware.
AMD's got two new 28nm video cards today, the AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition and the 7750. Compared to top-tier cards, they're pretty darn affordable, but not without a few concessions.
If you've ever built a computer, this will be jarring: Nvidia's agreed to license its SLI tech for use on AMD motherboards. (AMD, of course, bought Nvidia arch-rival ATI a while ago and buried the ATI brand in favor of a unified AMD front a few months ago.)
Cable cutting is almost a reflexively good thing, right? Wireless mice, wireless console controllers, wireless internet—but is this wireless KFA2 GeForce GTX460 graphics card just wireless for the pure sake of it? Or is this the future?
Sometime this week two new AMD GPU cards, the 6870 and 6850, will launch. Tested.com's figured out some of the specs from the images, so if this pic is getting you hot under the collar do check 'em out: [Tested]
Nvidia gave us a taste of what its Fermi-based notebook graphics cards would be like with the GeForce GTX 480M, but now it's time to meet the whole family. That's seven Fermi GPUs, running the gamut from face-melting to face-singeing.
ATI has finally overtaken NVIDIA in the quest for dominant discrete GPU (graphics cards) marketshare. ATI: 51%. NVIDIA: 49%. Apparently the flames, dragons and race cars that have been printed on ATI-related packaging are superior to the flames, cyborgs and race cars printed on NVIDIA's. [CNET via Fudzilla via Engadget
The gang over at TechSpot loaded up the newly-released StarCraft II on what seems like a hundred different PC setups to determine what the best hardware setup for the insanely popular real-time strategy game is. Here are the results:
Gaming with goggles? Haven't tried it just yet, though I hear it's coming in our uncomfortable, slightly expensive futures. 3D PC gaming? Even more obscure to me, although Sapphire's single card setup sounds multi-monitor cool.
Choosing a graphics cards is a confusing endeavor. So Tom's Hardware shared their buying results after testing pretty much every card on the planet. Whether you've got $50 to spend or $250 to spend, this list will come in handy:
