The best motherboard doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that has the most of everything, simply because some of us don’t use a great number of capabilities that a device has. True, we would all pr...

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti: Maxwell take 1

During GPU history, it was often the case when new architecture debuted it didn’t do so with the most powerful graphic processor or with the most expensive model. NVIDIA decided to do the same again, even though when we say that Maxwell will inherit Kepler, that doesn’t mean that we will today present a video card that costs a couple hundred of euros. Moreover, Maxwell is making their breakthrough on the market in a rather “normal” category. Video cards that don’t cost more than 150 euros won’t excite anyone too much, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible to make serious progress.

ASUS Mars 760: Third contact with MARS

We could hardly wait for the moment when new MARS or ARES models would arrive at our doors. In case you weren’t aware, these two series are published interchangeably, but if memory serves us right, it didn’t happen that both were published in one year. The idea is for ASUS to show the technology that’s at their disposal with these models, because they were made completely by ASUS. This year, it’s NVIDIA’s turn, with a card named MARS 760.

ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II: Highest-level redesign

ASUS started with restyling the DirectCU model, which brought a breadth of fresh air in their recognizable design. With the cheaper GTX 760 model, aside from esthetics, there weren’t many changes. Contrary to that, GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II, which we’ve received directly from ASUS, belongs to the higher price and performance range. The manufacturer states that cooler design has, aside from esthetic changes, revisions in cooling efficiency.

ASUS Radeon R9 280X Matrix Platinum: Ultimate, again

New Radeon with R9 280X markings won’t bring too much innovation, because the manufacturers find it the easiest to just replace the old BIOS with a new one. Luckily, that doesn’t change the fact that more successful model will be just as good. At a lower price. Ideal example is ASUS’s R9 280X Matrix Platinum that’s virtually identical to the “old” HD 7970 Matrix Platinum, and the only difference is the new marking. The old model is, in our opinion, one of the best video cards that we’ve seen during last year, and now it comes at a lower price.

AMD Radeon R9 290: Affordable Hawaii

AMD’s announcement of Radeon R9 290X made a really good impression on the public. Most of excitement wasn’t due to performance, which is great, nor due to acoustic and thermal characteristic that aren’t really that good. So, what makes this card that popular? One very important thing that card manufacturers often tend to forget in their attempts to make them perform better. You guessed it – price. After a long while, the best model with one GPU has a starting price of less than 500 euros. AMD shocked the competition when they made this dramatic move. After that, AMD traditionally continued with slightly weaker Radeon R9 290 that lacks only X on the end. However, is it that big of a deal?

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti: Game of Thrones

When NVIDIA presented the GeForce Titan, users were offered an opportunity to get the fastest video card with one graphics chip, at an insane price of 1000 euros. At that moment, AMD didn’t have a correct response to this model, which in turn, justified GTX Titan’s presence on the market. Last month, Radeon R9 290X appeared which offered the same performances as titan at half the price. As a result, Titan’s presence on the market is meaningless and NVIDIA was forced to take drastic measures. In order to retain their position at the top of “single-GPU” cards, the company presented GeForce GTX 780 Ti this month. The new model is everything the Titan should have been and much more than just a polished GTX 780.

AMD Radeon R9 290X: Hawaii are here!

When two models from the Volcanic Island series came out last month, we were a bit disappointed with the fact that the model with a brand new chip and code name Hawaii was delayed for the end of October. In the end, they kept their promise, and we’ve received Radeon R9 290X. With this newest addition, AMD went back to the top when it comes to gaming performances and that’s quite an accomplishment. The newest chip is bigger and more complex than ever, and it’s the best GPU that AMD ever made.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760: Third installment of the original Kepler

NVIDIA is one of the companies that passionately support the “rebrand” policy. Simply put, we get the impression that whenever there’s a lack of certain products, this company simply uses the existing hardware and with minor changes presents it as a novelty. Sometimes they’re successful, sometimes not. There are numerous factors involved in the probability of success of this approach. We’ve already come to the conclusion that GTX 770 is an excellent video card, so the fact that it’s just a renamed GTX 680 didn’t lessen the value of this excellent product. On the other hand, GTX 680 will definitely have a few problems.

ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini: Hidden Dragon

When you’re making a PC that’s supposed be the home multimedia center, you often wish that it will also replace the console. With new APUs that’s almost possible, but certain compromises have to be made. It will be hard to play Crysis 3, FarCry 3 or new Bioshock Infinite on any APU. For these games, it is almost mandatory to have a new generation high-end video card. Unfortunately, there are so few of cards intended solely for HTPC, that we can’t even recall a specific model. Still, ASUS decided to give as a card to remember. We’re not just saying that, because this is not just any card, but rather it’s a redesigned GeForce GTX 670! You read correctly, this is practically the second fastest video card with one GPU that NVIDIA has. We know it sounds unbelievable, but continue reading – you’ll be impressed, trust us.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770: Not groundbreaking, but still interesting

Making a new product is hard. Making a new product out of an older one and doing it successfully is even harder. In order to do that, there are few obstacles to overcome. First of all, media and the public are not fans of old products with a new name which implies that it’s not that much different. Still, NVIDIA definitely has experience in this field, because they’re no strangers to rebranding. As much as that’s frowned upon, in this situation most of the critics won’t have anything to complain about. Simply put, NVIDIA has good arguments this time.
