In today's article we review the new GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti from Nvidia. These cards are affordable - low power - decent performance graphics cards that will allow you to game even at 1080P. these cards are intended to compete with the Geforce GTX 650 series. For the technology-press however the most important fact is that a new GPU architecture was applied, these cards are Maxwell based products.
NVIDIA recently announced GSync, a technology that is named to be a game changer, we have an exclusive preview for you today. Yes G-Sync eliminates the problems that come with VSYNC both on and off. Meaning no more Sync stuttering and that dreaded demon of them all, Screen tearing. G-Sync basically is a technology made compatible with a G-Sync module and software. And that symbiosis honestly is a touch of magic. Well, we'll explain it all in this article as we have gotten our hands on an ASUS G-SYNC monitor.

On Friday NVIDIA announced G-Sync, and considering the little details available out there I wanted to write a quick follow-up on this new technology, as it really is a big announcement - a really big thing actually.

In this review we benchmark the MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightningedition. Armed with military class components, an awesome TwinFrozr cooler that is very silent and keeps this GPU chilled down at a cool 60 Degrees C temperature. Next to that is has voltage monitoring points, a reactor core, a secondary BIOS as backup and liquid cooling and well, just so much more. Have a peek at what might be one of the finest GeForce GTX 770 cards available on the market.

In this review we peek at the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC (SuperClocked) edition. This model graphics card comes with a factory overclock and the new single fan cooler with. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , with its 1111 MHz core clock frequency. We take the latest games and do some FCAT testing as well.
In this review we take the KFA2 GeForce GTX 770 EX OC edition for a benchmarkin' test-drive. This model graphics card comes with a factory overclock and a new design cooler with dual 90mm fans. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
In this review and benchmark the Palit GeForce GTX 770 Jetstream. This graphics card comes with massive factory overclock and the new 3-slot -3 fan cooler. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , very chill and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
In this review we take the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 WindForce 3x OC for a spin. This model graphics card comes with a factory overclock and the new WindForce 3X 2 cooler with Triangle Cool fans. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , 100% cool and 100% silent.

We test and review the GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 is a top of the line graphics card high-end positioned. It uses a familiar GPU though, yes the very same GPU as the GTX 680 uses. That makes it a chunk faster and pricing it aggressively this is the new GeForce GTX 770. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last Light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.

We take on the MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition and perform an in-depth test and review. This graphics card is launched to fill the gap inbetween the Radeon HD 7770 and Radeon HD 7850. Aimed at a pricetag of roughly 150 EUR this product comes with 768 shader processors. MSI applies a custom PCB and their Cyclone II cooler. Next to that you receive a factory overclock right out of the box. Let's check it out shall we ?

We review NVIDIA's reference GeForce GTX 650 Ti in this article. This product is launched to fill the gap inbetween the Radeon HD 7770 and Radeon HD 7850. Aimed at a pricetag of roughly 145 EUR (Euro 119.00 excl. VAT).
this product comes with 768 shader processors, and that fact alone should make it a good chunk faster than the regular GTX 650 model. Have a peek and let's head onwards into the review shall we?
Today I wanted to write a little 'opinionated' editorial. Typically we do not address rumors and gossip. But an accumulation of things that have been going on over at camp NVIDIA and the Internet leading us to believe things are not as they should be. The rumors are creating a rather negative stigma for NVIDIA. Here's our take on the pending GeForce 470 and 480. Read article
Last week we arrived at Sin City not only to cover CES but there was something else going on as well. In Las Vegas, NVIDIA had organized a briefing for a select group of the press. From Europe perhaps ten to fifteen people where invited for this somewhat privileged preview -- the topic, a technical overview of project Fermi. Fermi is of course the family name of the latest generation of GPUs from NVIDIA. The first chipset deriving from Fermi will be called the GF100 GPU which will likely be used on what we think will be called products like GeForce 360 and GeForce 380. Join us in a nice technology preview. Read article
In this article we will test and review the NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision stereo kit. NVIDIA teamed up with Samsung to optionally bundle 120 Hz LCD monitors with their all new 3D stereo shutter glasses technology. NVIDIA on their end got driver support up and going to a state where it's really good. Next to that, they redesigned the approach to the overall gaming experience. A set of shutter glasses that is wireless and rechargeable, games that are supported in the new drivers will automatically kick in 3D mode and next to that, NVIDIA really wanted a cool looking kit.

A preview on NVIDIA ION. What NVIDIA has done with the ION is to create a platform that combines a GeForce 9400M chipset with an Intel Atom processor, all placed on a Pico-ITX PCB. The advantage here is by using such a chipset the environment (PC) will instantly gain modern features and the sheer influence of a GeForce graphics processor meaning you can playback 1080P movies on for example a Netbook or mini-PC.

A test on the ECS GF9300T-A motherboard. Today NVIDIA is introducing their more budget conscious mainboard chipsets. The GF9300 and GF9400 based integrated graphics chipset motherboard products. Read article
In this article we'll cover all that you need to know about the nForce 790i Ultra SLI. This is the mainboard that applies to you guys. We'll do the review in Guru style. Meaning the real hands-on experience combined with all data you like to learn, gamers style. Obviously we'll test and compare a little as well. But first let me show you the technical specifications of the NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI before we attack it with red peppers and drive it to the extreme. NVIDIA made sure that the nForce 790 series is one of the if not the best overclocking platform available. But you will pay top dollar for it, yet by overclocking you will gain that invested revenue back, that's a guarantee. Read article
The industry has been moving forward and we now see slow adoption of PCIe 2.0, new Intel Penryn (45nm) Core 2 processors are close to it's release and then of course the launch of NVIDIA's 3-way SLI last week which for 780i meant adoption of (3x) 16x PCIe slots. Time for the good old nForce68-i to get an upgrade to the all new nForce 780i. Read article
If you had a close look at the 8800 GTX & Ultra, you'd notice there's a second SLI finger (connector) and to date there has been a lot of speculation about that extra connector, to name one .. it could have been an extension for physics over a third card. The truth is often to be found in the most simple and logical solution, it was all about SLI from the get go. If you have one of these rather expensive cards you can now link up three cards and enable 3-way SLI. Read article
Today is the day that NVIDIA is launching it's GeForce 8800 Ultra. Now, NVIDIA tried to keep this product as secret as can be ... why ? Two reasons, to prevent technical specifications leaking onto the web. Secondly; obviously to change specs at the last minute. See ATI is releasing their R600 graphics card soon and the Ultra is the product that NVIDIA prepared to counteract in the market, an allergic reaction tothe R600 so to speak. Read article
Let me put it simple .. The 68i SLI LT mainboard is a regular 680i SLI mainboard in all it's ways yet to cut costs there have been several functions stripped. For example .. you'll have to miss out on the 3rd "graphics" PCI-Express slot (the 8x one), you'll only have one GBit/s Ethernet connector, you lost the passively cooled SSP and MCP, it's now done with active fans, you loose LinkBoost and some tweaking options in the BIOS. Other stuff you'll miss are the black PCB, diagnostic LEDs, reset and power off/on micro switches in the mainboard PCB and some other small stuff. We'll explain ... click me ! Read article
Armed with a license to game NVIDIA has unleashed yet another graphics card on-to that crowded graphics card market. Today they present you the GeForce 7900 GS. An absolutely stunning videocard when it comes to price versus performance. Guru3D will test the XFX Extreme version, Sparkle's version in SLI and the reference model. Read article

Merely eight weeks later NVIDIA recently released a ForceWare 91.37 driver to the public opening up Quad SLI compatibility not only to these pre-built Quad SLI rigs but also for the do-it yourselfers among us, thus offering you the option to built and try out Quad SLI. Quite a challenge I figured but hey ... I'm not saying it's there just yet .. but there has been some tremendous progress which we just have to write a little something about. Read article

Reason enough for NVIDIA to release the nForce 500 series for Intel's processors (Core 2 Duo as well). Today we'll be taking a brief look at the reference NVIDIA NFORCE 590 SLI mainboard. It by all means is test done with a reference board that is not 100% finished and unfortunately we did not receive a final product from a board partner like ASUS. Nonetheless .. even with this very Beta reference mainboard I was shocked by the combination of Conroe and NFORCE 590 SLI for Intel, in very positive way I must add. Read article
