Falcon Northwest FragBox 2, CPU Cooler Roundup
Today over at Gamecloud, Jeff Yates(VP of Havok) gives his time for an interview. Topics range from his feelings on how the Havok physics has been used, to their new software "Havok Animation"(Thanks Blue!). And for all you overclockers out there, ATI's X1800 XT has had it's GPU pushed past a whopping 1GHz! Do I even have to mention liquid nitrogen was involved?
"I was extremely disappointed by the stability issues we were having in Battlefield 2, and I wasn't convinced that the combination of hardware that we received would ever work 100% together. I applaud Falcon's efforts in making it right, and I can even chalk up some of the problems to unforeseen incompatibilities, but the bottom line is that Falcon knew what we were purchasing this system for, and it didn't perform."
"DFI employs the Crossfire edition of the Xpress 200 which is actively cooled, and then the SB450 handles the Southbridge duty and it is passively cooled. Above the Northbridge you will find the BIOS chip, and above it a horizontally mounted IDE connector. Above the SB450 are 4 SATA ports attached to it in yellow. The downside is they only support SATA 1 which means a limit of 150mb/sec and RAID 0 or 1 support."
"We can't remember the last time we saw such brand promotion with fanciful websites to promote a cell phone that does something as stale as taking pictures, but at higher resolutions. Not to mention that it lacks a hard drive, which isn't all that bad a thing. With that said, it has quite a few attractive features as going for it, but does it have what it takes to justify the bulkiness and the hefty price tag?"
"While ATI is busy showing off their new products it is easy to forget that they still have a pretty nice line-up already out. The X800-series has grown a lot and today I am testing the X800GT and X800GTO cards from HIS."
