VideoCardz News #4
Last week I didn’t post a roundup, because: there wasn’t really much to report, I’m still very busy with a development of new VideoCardz, and I finally bought my new graphics card (and that’s very important to me, if you know what I mean). But today we return with a new roundup of all the interesting news from around the web, which are always related to graphics cards.
3DMark 99, 2000, 2001, 03, 05, 06, Vantage & 11 (Demo Mode)
Look what I found, all the demos of 3Dmark software in one clip. My story began with 2001 version and I watched the whole movie with pleasure. I bet some of you will also like it.
Guide to flash GeForce GTX 580M to GTX 670M
Are you a fan of mobile graphics cards? Possibly you are one of the lucky owners of a GTX 580M, then you can simply upgrade it to 600 Series with only a few clicks. According to the post, it’s safe, mostly because GTX 675M is just a re-branded 580M.
I chose this review, because it shows how fast GeForce GTX 670 can be. Inno3D’s model is faster than GeForce GTX 680 out of the box.
How to turn single-slot graphics card into quad-slot? Simply by mounting V6000 cooling system. Quadro 3000 is a GF100 Fermi based professional card, but real overclockers never stop to pursue more power.
Quote: As predicted by KitGuru last month, nVidia’s mountain of GTX 570 chips in the world is being obliterated by a series of significant price drops – preparing the market for the up-coming launch of the new GTX 660. KitGuru powers up the crystal ball and scans for prices.
If you have $320 you might be interested in this motherboard. It’s one of the most powerful on the market, while is supports 4 Cards PCI-E 3.0 with x8/ x16 / x8 / x8 configuration (and that’s very rare).
Quote: Just like we recently compared graphics cards based on the Radeon HD 7750/7770 and the Radeon HD 7850/7870, this review will compare and contrast video cards based on the Radeon HD 7950 and 7970. We will focus here on their mutual differences.
Well, they beaten the actual record just a week after it was already beaten. They managed to reach 33266 points, which is 76 more than previous record with GTX 680′s.
Quote: Reports earlier last week revealed that United Microelectronics Corp (UMC) had won a contract with Qualcomm to produce the Snapdragon S4 chips, and that contract came at the expense of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC).
