Based on the reference design, HIS claims the R9 295X2 graphics card "is the world's fastest graphics card engineered for ultimate performance."
We're not particularly fond of AMD's reference Radeon R9 270-series cooling solution. Fortunately, most of the company's board partners have their own heat sinks and fans. We take 10 cards and measure their clock rates, thermals, and acoustics.
Perhaps fortunately, AMD's reference Radeon R9 280X is a bit of a phantom outside our own labs. If you're shopping for one of these Tahiti-based boards, you're looking at third-party solutions. We round up seven models and show what makes them different.
HIS' new R7-260X graphics card features reference clock speeds and the company's iPower Design and "state of the art" IceQ X2 cooling system.
Three more manufacturers have released their HD 7990 graphics cards. Unsurprisingly, it's more of the same.
For many folks, the most beautiful sound that a PC can make is no sound at all. How close can Tom's Hardware get to a zero-decibel configuration and still lend up with a compact, functional machine capable of mainstream gaming, without breaking the bank?
Following its release last week, the AMD Radeon HD7790 graphics card is available from a wide variety of manufacturers with a range of coolers and clock speeds.
So you like our System Builder Marathon? Ever come up with your own idea for a killer rig? Don't forget to tell us about it on the Tom's Hardware forums. The following ten setups were configured by forum members and chosen in Q1 2013 BestConfigs Poll.
EVGA recently lent our German lab one of the GeForce GTX 690s we've had in the U.S. for months. The purpose? To pit against HIS' upcoming 7970 X2 and PowerColor's Devil13 HD7990, both dual-Tahiti boards vying to become the world's fastest graphics card.
HIS has PowerColor’s Devil 13 in its sights and is aiming to bring the world’s fastest graphics card to the market soon by coupling two Radeon 7970 GPUs. At Computex 2012, we got to see the mockup, but now we’ve got our hands on the actual card.
With Nvidia's GeForce GTX 670 readily available for $400, AMD's Radeon HD 7950 shifts to the upper middle class of graphics card performance. We test six third-party interpretations in anticipation of pricing more in line with its competitive position.
GeForce GTX 680 cards are nowhere to be found, and the Radeon HD 7970 recently dropped to a much more attractive price. We thought it was time to round up a handful of Tahiti-based cards to see how board partners are improving upon AMD's original recipe.
What better way to wrap up a scorching summer than with a last word on cooling? We explain the most important rules for creating ideal airflow, address the potential effectiveness of side fans, and discuss the finer points of graphics card cooling.
AMD’s 1 GB Radeon HD 6950s are certainly cheaper than their 2 GB predecessors. But are they really a better value? In theory, the Cayman GPU runs out of steam before 2 GB is needed. So, we're comparing five custom 1 GB cards to the 2 GB part to find out.
ATI graphics were around for 25 years, 10 of them centering on the Radeon family. As the ATI brand fades away, we're left to remember the company's most noteworthy desktop cards, right after the 6970/6950 launch and just before the Radeon HD 6990 emerges.
