Breaking from our usual benchmarking of new graphics cards, today we're revisiting one of the most powerful GPUs you could've purchased four years ago. The GeForce GTX 780 launched in May 2013 with a mighty impressive showing. At launch, the GTX 780 was ~24% faster than the GTX 680 and 16% faster than the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition.

This new AMD driver offers a considerable performance boost of up to 30% when using 8xMSAA in DiRT 4 and Prey. There's also a long list of fixed issues among which are a Virtual Super Resolution failure and flickering in some Radeon RX 400 and RX 500 products and enabling HDR on high resolution displays. Go to our drivers section for complete release notes and downloads for all platforms.
I'm a huge fan of Corsair's mechanical gaming keyboards, but I'll admit I had never used a Corsair gaming mouse until the Glaive landed on my desk a couple of weeks ago. As a long-time user of Razer's DeathAdder, I decided to switch over the Glaive full-time to see if it could win me over for everyday and gaming use cases.
Galax's GTX 1070 Katana caught our attention for counting itself among the few single-slot gaming graphics cards available today. In fact, to the best of our knowledge, this is the only single-slot, air-cooled GTX 1070 in the world, as anything with a thermal design power of 75 watts or higher is typically paired with a dual-slot cooler for the added heat dissipation.
Unlike Nvidia or AMD, Intel is not known for releasing graphics drivers to coincide with new game releases, but this time they've paved the way for DiRT 4 and Tekken 7. The latest HD Graphics drivers come optimized for these two titles and also solves key issues in Battlefield 1, Star Wars Battlefront, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and others. Release notes and files download are available from our drivers section for Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 64-bit.
