AMD's new Radeon HD 6900 series video cards have officially launched, in the shape of the AMD Radeon HD 6950 and the Radeon HD 6970. Slotting in at the top end of AMD's range, the new cards replace the Radeon HD 5870 from late-2009 with DirectX 11 support, boosted tessellation and image quality - the former up to 2.9x that of the HD 5870 - and 2GB of video memory.
The NVIDIA GTS 450 video card has been around for a while now and most of the video cards are dual slot designs. That dual slot design is common today and for most of us, the card taking up two slots isn't a big deal. If you are building up a slim PC with only a single slot inside that dual slot video card is a deal killer.
AMD's reportedly delayed Radeon HD 6970/6950 GPUs are apparently on course for release in the third week of December 2010, though initial supplies of the new chips are expected to be limited. Quoting sources at video card manufacturers, DigiTimes claims that AMD will price the new Radeon HD 6970 at around $50-70 less than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580.
Yesterday marked the official launch of the NVIDIA GTX 570 video card line. The launch means that hoards of cards were landing on the market and for most of them the only thing that separates them from each other is the name stamped on the box and the game and software bundle that the cards ship with. PNY has unveiled its GTX 570 and gamers that are fans of the StarCraft series may like the bundle.
NVIDIA has outed its latest video card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570, a GTX 500 Series card that's been buffed down to a budget. With an RRP of $349, the GTX 570 takes the chassis of November's GTX 580 and shaves away the GPU to suit: it has 480 CUDA cores, a 732MHz graphics clock and 1,464MHz processor clock, while outputs consist of a mini HDMI and two dual-link DVI ports.
If you are a computer gamer you are probably drooling all over, your keyboard right now at through of the gaming prowess that you can get from the GTX 595 pictured here. This dual GPU beast will supposedly host a pair of GF110 GPUs that are linked by a bridge chip thought to be the NF200.
NVIDIA has outed its latest graphics card, and the company has Apple Mac Pro users firmly in its sights. The NVIDIA Quadro 4000 for Mac packs 256 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory, which connectivity includes a DisplayPort and a DVI-I (Dual Link) connector built into its bracket, and an optional 3D stereo bracket; NVIDIA also throw in a DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort adapter.
NVIDIA has officially launched the GeForce GTX 580 GPU, and they're unsurprisingly pretty excited about it. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 is billed as the world's fastest DX11 GPU, 30-percent faster than the GTC 480 and packing 512 cores, 16 PolyMorph engines and support for either stereoscopic 3D or triple-displays.
New details on AMD's Radeon HD 6900 series graphics cards have been squeezed out over the weekend, with live shots of the Radeon HD 6970 arriving at ZOL together with some early specifications at Fudzilla. According to the leaks, the Cayman-based video card will tote 1,536 stream processors, along with 32 ROPs, 96 texture units and a full 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
NVIDIA and AMD are fighting it out in the GPU market and neither firm is one to sit around waiting for the other to launch the next product in the video card wars. NVIDIA is teasing us with a glimpse at some future video card tech that is incoming but has not gone official at this point.
