Is Nvidia RTX going to survive?
     Thu, Jan 23 2020 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since the inception and announcement of RTX, Nvidia has hard a bumpy road getting it into the hands of gamers in a satisfying manner. The RTX launch title being Battlefield V which unfortunately took a patch about a month later to make RTX a much more playable technology for users. There has been a slow burn of titles integrating the ray tracing tech over the past year, but now we have another major AAA title that may be the key to RTX adoption. Some gamers love Battlefield for its realistic nature while some love COD for its more run and gun arcade gameplay. There is also a specific cross-section of users who can play both and enjoy them each for their merits and values. Today we have the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for PC and we will be running it through its paces and showing what you can expect from three levels of GPU in the RTX family.

MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming X Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Jan 22 2020 | 7:23P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT is finally here! After being announced back on January 6th at CES 2020 we finally have this card in to review to see what it is really about! The card is set to slot between AMD's own RX 5700 series and RX 5600 XT graphics cards. It will compete with the likes of NVIDIA's $230 GTX 1660 Super and recently reduced RTX 2060. This card is based on AMD's Navi 10 XLE silicon with 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors, 144 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The card we are taking a look at today is MSI's Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming X, which currently sits as MSI's top RX 5600 XT model. It features a boost clock up to 1750 MHz, game clock up to 1615 MHz, MSI's Twin Frozr 7 thermal design, a full-cover metal backplate, RGB lighting and much more!"

Sapphire RX 5600 XT Pulse Review
     Wed, Jan 22 2020 | 7:22P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a turbulent week for AMD’s latest GPU. Announced at CES 2020, the RX 5600 XT was meant to take the fight directly to Nvidia’s GTX 16-series product line, with a $279 MSRP and cut-down specs compared to the RX 5700. Thanks to a new BIOS update, however, pushed just days before the GPU’s official launch, the 5600 XT is now positioned against the RTX 2060. What exactly has been going on, and is this GPU actually any good?

Radeon RX 5600 XT
     Wed, Jan 22 2020 | 7:22P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD’s Radeon team once again has sprung another GPU upon us with the new RX 5600 XT, and this time it is destined to fill the gap between the previous RX 5500 XT and the RX 5700 series. While this is not “Big NAVI” as so many gamers are waiting for to take on Nvidia’s top dog RTX 2080 SUPER, and 2080 Ti, it is focusing on more filling the gap in the midrange GPU space which is where a bulk of the cards that gamers buy exist. While The 5600 XT may not be exciting to the die-hard enthusiasts in the room, we must remember that a large portion of gamers are on 1080p with something around the GTX 1060 range GPU, which is right around where the RX 5600 XT is looking to reside. That being said, this is a good money play for AMD to try to fill the upgrade needs of gamers who are very value-conscious and are looking for a solid newer 1080p experience.
