The popular Anno series has been ongoing for many years now always based on history. The franchise decided to jump to the future, 58 years ahead of time. For Anno 2070 the graphics engine has been updated, the game is now DirectX 11 compatible. And as such it is time to throw a couple of graphics cards (well we can't say that nineteen graphics cards are a couple really) at it to see how well the game performs with DX11 cards Anno 2012.
One innovative product that dropped like a bomb into the market a couple of weeks ago is the KFA2/Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 WHDI with the card transmitting a wireless signal to your HDTV. An idea that originates from Intel actually, as they also have WHDI solutions these days. But think about it .. a graphics card with no monitor connectors attached to it, yet when you look at the HDTV you see your desktop in 1920x1080P perfectly clear and fine, ... all transmitted through the air. The concept surely is miraculous and even weirder, it works surprisingly well ! Read article
We have a look at Starcraft II Wings of Liberty GPU graphics performance. With no less than 13 graphics cards we see how well this soon to be released game behaves in terms of image quality and framerates.
Last week Codemasters released a two level playable demo allowing you to play the game on both DX9 and DX11 (if you have a Radeon HD series 5000 card that is). Also integrated is a benchmark mode, very handy. Now we'll not be using the standard benchmark yet our own scripted test run in the Ensenada Port circuit set in Baja California level where we can drive through sand, mud and water to measure the most prominent DX11 features like DX11 Hardware tessellation, Geometry instancing and displacement mapping -- plus obviously more complex shader usage. let's go check out both the DX9 and DX11 image quality and performance.

In this article we look at VGA graphics performance and in game quality of the game Anno1404. We'll take 15 graphics cards to the test with this title and will show you what you can expect per graphics card and monitor resolution. Read article
In this article we'll take a dozen of graphics cards and see how well they perform with UBISofts latest title, Tom Clancy HAWX. An amazingly looking fligh-simulator with an arcade element to it. Read article
Amilo SA3650 laptop with Graphics Booster tested - A common problem with a laptop is that they are not really designed for gaming aren't they ? And sure there are some solutions out there with a more mainstream embedded GPU, yet often that is completely unaffordable, let alone upgradeable. With the help of AMD XGP it is now possible to connect an external graphcis card, next to the laptop. Therefore a small insight into the Fujitsu Siemens Amilo SA3650 Laptop with XGP Graphic Booster.

Left 4 Dead is a game about escaping from different places infested with Zombies. Today we'll look at the Left 4 Dead game and fire off 23 graphics cards at this title to see what performance we get returned, we'll throw in a little Multi-GPU results in there as well. Read article
Here we test 16 graphics cards on performance with Call of Duty 5: World at War. Over the next pages we'll compare some images quality settings in-between ATI and NVIDIA, look at a couple of screenshots and then head onwards towards our benchmark test. Read article
What we'll do today is what you can expect from a site like Guru3D.com, we take all modern GeForce and Radeon graphics cards, seek a nice image quality setting and report back to you what you can expect performance and quality wise from this bitching title. Seventeen cards versus 4 resolutions versus 3 runs per resolution. That's 204 benchmark runs ... Read article
Sun rays burst through cracks in wooden roofs. Lightning lights up the night sky as well as dark interiors. It looks terrific and atmospheric, which is what S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is all about really. But how does it perform ? Guru3D takes 13 graphics cards and has a peek at performance. Read article
