Nvidia have released their NVIDIA Shield game console to the European Benelux market, as such we finally have received a sample for review. The Android TV box based unit is a little gem as it properly takes over your Smart-TV experience, but can also function as a simple game console. You can use Nvidia Grid to stream games (subscription based) and, if you install Kodi, you'll have a fully fledged Ultra HD ready media player.
In this review we look deeply into the GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Everything you heard is true, this product is based on BIG Maxwell, the same GPU that is powering the Titan X. Obviously the product has been cut down a tiny bit, but trust us when we say, there's plenty performance to be found. This product comes with a luxurious 6 GB graphics memory and with such values, the GTX 980 Ti should be fetching a lot of interest for the true gamers among is.
We review the GeForce GTX Titan X. Now it surely hasn't been a long wait as in-between the introduction announcement and launch there have been two weeks. But yeah, the 12 GB beast has arrived. Initially the Titan series was positioned to be a professional line of products, however these puppies are fetching a lot of interest as gaming graphics cards.

We peek at a new anti-aliasing mode that Nvidia has announced and is releasing today. We take a closer look at MFAA or better known as Multi-Frame Samples Anti Aliasing, it offers near MSAA quality with a smaller impact on performance. In this guide the initial steps to get MFAA going and a handful of numbers.

We review GeForce GTX 980 but this time in a 2-way and 3-way SLI. We'll FLIR them, Overclock them, look at ultra HD performance as well as a micro stuttering analysis with the help of FCAT. Join us in this review where we'll once again look at everything.
We review Nvidias little money maker, the GeForce GTX 970 but this time in a 2-way SLI. As such we'll be going from fast to faaaaast. In this review we'll run the standard benchmarks, but we will also have a good look at Ultra HD gaming performance as well as a micro stuttering analysis with the help of FCAT. Join us in this review where we'll once again look at everything.
We review the GeForce GTX 970 and 980 reference cards today. The long awaited Maxwell architecture based high-end cards are ready to rock and roll. Armed with 4 GB graphics memory, the energy efficient and well priced products are ready to slay the way in gaming performance.

Join us as we review the ASUS Republic Of Gamers Swift PG278Q GSYNC gaming monitor. NVIDIA has announced GSync but 3rd party monitors with that GSYNC module have been hard to get. ASUS outs their second GSYNC compatible monitor, this round they do it with a nice 27-inch WQHD display that can handle a 144 Hz refresh rate and has 1ms response time. The downside, it is a TN screen. So how good is it really ?

Nvidia today announced the Nvidia Shield Tablet, an 8 inches Tablet empowered by a Tegra SoC. basically this what the Nvidia shield launch should have been in the first place, instead of a hand-held a nice tablet that oozes functionality and features.

We review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX Titan Black WindForce GHz edition. You take the reference product, arm it with a custom WindForce cooler and you receive a 6GB Titan Black that has been factory overclocked towards 1111 MHz on the boost clock for you. How on this Earth is that not very interesting?
A while ago Nvidia launched the GeForce GTX Titan Black which we review. We never tested it as it was supposed to be a professional series and targeted card. Nvidia's Board partners however are slowly re-releasing this product as a gaming graphics card, as well as Nvidia who is plugging the product in their gaming benchmarks on their own website. As such, we figured that it is about time we review this puppy as well. Meet Joe Black, ehm Geforce GTX Titan Black.

We review the dual-GPU GeForce GTX Titan Z. The card is much talked about as Nvidia introduced the product at prices that are incredibly high. Then Nvidia decided to refuse to send out samples to the media. To this day that fact has remained the same, however once cards get into retail they inevitably will end up with the media regardless of what Nvidia wants. So today we test the dual GPU based Titan Z. A card that created a lot of controversy, as such we'll go in-depth once again to see whether or not this 2800 EUR product even has a chance to compete with the 1300 EUR Radeon R9 295x2.
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.

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.
