AMD has confirmed it intends to axe its separate ATI graphics card branding, telling The Tech Report that it will instead be bringing them under the AMD umbrella. Intended to accommodate the new breed of combined CPU/GPU Fusion chipsets that will kick off with the Bobcat before the end of 2010, the move also follows AMD's research which discovered potential buyers were three times more likely to pick an ATI-branded card when they were told AMD were behind it.
XFX has been peddling some very cool video cards for years. The company was traditionally a NVIDIA branded partner and then moved into selling ATI branded video cards as well. The latest ATI card to come from XFX is an awesomely cool offering called the HD 5970 Black Edition Limited.
XFX has been selling video cards for a long time and for much of that time it was all NVIDIA. XFX now also sells ATI video cards and the company has unveil a cool new single slot HD 5770 option for gamers needing performance in confined space. The video card is available now in a couple models.
Back when NVIDIA made its GeForce GTX 460 official in mid-July, we suspected we might see some slightly more outlandish production models after OEMs had a little time with the Fermi GPU. Onda has delivered just that with their GeForce GTX 460 ES, an overclocked version with dual fans compared to the reference design's single spinner, and Expreview managed to get their hands on a sample.
NVIDIA has outed its latest Fermi-based cards, the NVIDIA Quadro Plex 7000 array, and Quadro 6000, Quadro 5000 and Quadro 4000 GPUs, targeting graphics professionals that might weep in excitement over the fact that they're apparently up to five times faster for 3D applications and up to eight times faster for computational simulation. While most models are intended for desktop workstations, there's also the Quadro 5000M chipset for mobile workstations.
