7 June 2009
Excerpt: The world of graphics is...interesting to say the least. I know many of you would call the move from $1000 GPUs being the king of the proverbial hill to $250 cards dominating that space to be less exciting, but there is no arguing that it is more affordable. We have seen our fair share of new graphics cards hit the market with one prevailing trend: performance is getting cheap; really cheap.
Excerpt: The Dark Knight series of graphics cards have been out for a while now, but this is actually the first time we've had a look at any card that's a part of the series. The particular model we're looking at today is the GTS 250 which, while being nothing more than a rebranded 9800 GTX+, has gained popularity due to the aggressive pricing structure that NVIDIA has done on it.
Excerpt: Новые видеокарты Radeon пятой серии постепенно завоевывают рынок. Но пока их доступность все еще оставляет желать лучшего, спрос на видеоадаптеры прошлого поколения по-прежнему сохраняется. В частности, не теряет популярность и Radeon HD 4770, первая видеокарта на базе 40-нм графического чипа RV740.
