I have lost track of the number of Sapphire graphics cards that I have seen over the past ten years, starting with the ATI Radeon 9700. During this time, Sapphire has been a dedicated partner first of ATI and latterly of AMD, and it constantly pushes...

We're straying into the faintly awkward territory of frame buffer capacity here. How much video memory do you actually need, and how little can you really expect to get away with on a fairly entry-level graphics card these days? These are the thorny...

What I am most impressed about this graphic card is the combination of price, performance and cooling. It's running under 100w and temperature hovers around 70c even when the fan is only going at 40% speed in a warm room. Worth shelling out a wee bit...

When compared to other AMD cards, the HD 7790 1GB performs respectably, as it's left roughly in the middle of the cheaper HD 7770 1GB and the costlier HD 7850 2GB. Compared with the GTX 650 Ti 1GB, AMD's HD 7790 1GB doesn't always perform as well as...
