NVIDIA has launched their latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 650Ti Boost graphics card. This mid-range graphics card is powered by NVIDIA’s 28nm GK106 GPU, and sports 768 CUDA Cores, a 192-bit memory interface, a core clock of 980MHz (1033MHz Boost Clock) and a 2GB of GDDR5 memory set @ 6008MHz. The Boost card’s clock speeds have also been brought up to match the GTX 660 2GB, with a 5 percent increase to the core clock speed bringing it up from the GTX 650 Ti 1GB’s 925MHz to 980Mhz , and also 140W TDP. Compared to the past GTX 650 Ti, the new GPU features to as much as 60% more memory bandwidth by having a wider 192-bit memory user interface.
If you are a budget gamer like me, then you might want to consider buying this mid range graphics card called ZOTAC Geforce GTX 650 1GB Rev2. This graphics card has a compact design, only about 153.15mm on its board length and sells for only $105. Powered by NVIDIA’s Kepler GPU, the card features 384 CUDA Cores, a 128-bit memory interface, a core clock of 1058MHz and a 1GB of GDDR5 memory set @ 5000MHz, and features dual-link DVI-D, D-Sub and HDMI outputs. The GeForce GTX 650 1GB REV2 will become available from early April via ASK Inc. Japan.
MSI has officially released its latest graphics card based on AMD’s 28nm Radeon HD 7970 GPU, the MSI R7970 Lightning. The MSI R7970 Lightning features 2048 Stream Processors, a 384-bit memory interface, a core clock of 1070MHz (1150MHz Boost Clock) and a 3GB of GDDR5 memory set @ 6000MHz. The MSI R7970 also sports all new unlocked Digital Power Architecture capable on unlocking BIOS, military class III components, an Enhanced Power Design to make overclocking better and faster, and a Digital PWM Controller.
Point of View the leading European manufacturer of an exclusive range NVIDIA based 3D processor has revealed its latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 680 Beast. This new graphics card having a 6-pin/8-pin power configuration will be their first attempt to market having a GPU clock of 1162MHz. The POV GeForce GTX 680 also benefits from an advanced power management for Auto-Overclocking which can boost it up to around 1280MHz. This powerful graphics card is also equipped with a very efficient combination of Triple Fan Cooling and a TGT cooling backplate which ensures utmost stability and cooling efficiency even beyond TGT’s official specifications. The Point of View GeForce GTX 680 BEAST has a retail price of around 560 Euro (about $688) including tax.
Galaxy has launched its latest powerful graphics card namely the GeForce GT 640, Codenamed GF PGT640/1GD3. The Galaxy GT 640 GC 1GB supports the newest features of GeForce 600 series, including Adaptive Vsync for smoother gameplay, PhysX, DirectX 11, and Blu-Ray 3D support. The graphics card has 384 CUDA Cores, a 128-bit memory interface, a core clock of 900MHz and a 1GB of GDDR3 memory set @ 1782MHz.
Here we have another newly released graphics card from HIS, the Radeon HD 7950 IceQ. Codenamed H795Q3G2M, the card sports 1792 CUDA Cores, a 384-bit memory interface, a core clock of 800MHz and a 3GB of GDDR5 memory set @ 5000MHz, and features a low noise, single-fan IceQ cooling system. In terms of connectivity ports, it offers 1x DVI-I, 1x HDMI and 2x mini DisplayPort. Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing yet.
Nvidia has launched its first Kepler based graphics card, the GTX 680. The card sports 1536 CUDA Cores, a 256-bit memory interface, a GPU clock of 1006MHz and a 2GB of GDDR5, and features dual-DVI, HDMI and Display Port outputs. Gainward GTX 680 2GB runs at reference clocks, i.e. 1006MHz GPU and 6008MHz (GDDR5) memory. There are no shader clocks. The difference between Fermi and Kepler architecture lies in the fact that Nvidia equipped Kepler with more shader units. However, these shaders are now slower and run at GPU clocks. So, instead of doubling shader clocks, Kepler comes with double the amount of shaders. Nvidia made sure to boost the GTX 680’s performance and with that in mind, the company not only doubled the GTX 580’s shader count, but tripled it. The Gainward GeForce GTX 680 is available now for 498.85 Euro (about $658).
MSI has announced its newest graphics card, the MSI R7970 Lightning. This graphics card features a 384-bit memory interface, a core clock of 1070MHz with a 3GB of DDR5 VRAM set @ 5600MHz and powered by AMD’s 28nm Radeon HD 7970 GPU. Additional features include all-new Unlocked Digital Power Architecture that incorporates an Unlocked BIOS, Digital PWM Controller, SL-DVI-I, SL-DVI-D, 4x mini DisplayPort outputs, and enhanced 17 phase power design to boost overclocking potential to extreme levels and at the same time making overclocking easier than ever.
HIS (Hightech Information System) has recently announced its latest graphics card, the Radeon HD 6930 IceQ X. This graphics card unique feature is its cooling system using a single-fan IceQ X. You will see that the graphics card is packed with a blue PCB featuring a GPU clock speed of 750MHz with a 256-bit memory interface and a 1 Gb of GDDR5 memory set @ 4800MHz. The HIS 6930 IceQ X is cooler compared to other graphics card because of the 9.2cm silent fan, huge amount of cool air is drawn from the central fan to cool down the GPU and other areas; the 4 heat pipes on the other hand enhance cooling performance by eliminating heat from the core area, giving hardcore gamers a maximum performance at its best.
Gigabyte has announced their latest graphics card powered by nVidia GT 440 GPU dubbed as the Gigabyte GVN440TC-1GI. This video card uses the 40nm technology and it features 512MB of GDDR5 with a 1GB of TurboCache memory, 830MHz core clock, 1660MHz shader clock and a 3200MHz memory clock. The Gigabyte GVN440TC-1GI requires at least a 400W PSU and supports PhysX, CUDA, DirectX 11, and has several connectivity options including D-Sub, DVI, and HDMI outputs. This new graphics card fits into a PCI-E 2.0 slot and has a 128-bit memory interface. As of now there are no information regarding its release date and pricing.
