The Misunderstanding – Presented by AMD


It is no secret that Nvidia’s Fermi was a disappointment. It gave good performance, yes. However the temperatures and energy consumption levels that it operates at were some of the highest ever seen in video cards ever. Nvidia’s leading competitor, AMD decides to make fun of Nvidia’s Fermi in a video.

I found the video mildly funny. Enjoy!

Is the GeForce GTX 480 Hot Enough to Fry an Egg?


LegitReviews went ahead and conducted a test to see if the infamously hot GTX 480 could fry an egg… You an see the results here.

I am pleased that they ran a benchmark to boost temperatures but am also disappointed they didnt run something more vigorous. I also think their open air environment gave even worse scores. But all the same… I appreciate that they took the time to address this question that many of their readers apparently had… for some reason.

Can the Fermi Fry an Egg?

EVGA Released NVIDIA GTX 480 and GTX 470 Hydro Copper FTW Edition




As you may know, Fermi was a little bit of a disappointment to many of us. One of the biggest issues with Fermi is that their product runs at 90C, that is at near-boiling temperatures! Thankfully EVGA has already created a solution for the temperature in their newly released product, the EVGA FTW Hydro Copper Edition. The EVGA Hydro Copper Edition promises to bring temperatures down for the GTX 480 and GTX 470 to 50C and 32C respectively. You can purchase the GeForce GTX 480 Hydro Copper FTW for $649.99 and the GeForce GTX 470 Hydro Copper FTW for $499.99.
