Not long ago, we reviewed the entire FirePro workstation graphics card lineup from ATI. With the V8800, our testing revealed considerable performance gains over the previous generation V8750, coupled with a lower price point. Surely, that's a combination that consumers can appreciate, especially for those looking to upgrade sooner, rather than later. But, at the time, the market was not yet settled as we anxiously awaited a response to ATI's FirePro products from NVIDIA. Thankfully, the wait is over as the launch of a new series of professional graphics cards from NVIDIA based on the company's... Read more...

Hello All. We've just posted a new article at HotHardware.com in which we evaluate the features and performance of AMD's new 65nm Brisbane core based Athlon 64 X2 5000+ processor. We compare its performance, power consumption, and overclockability to a 90nm Windsor based 5000+ throughout the article for a direct apples-to-apples comparison. Here's a snip: "With this transition, cost is a major factor, of course, but not just from a manufacturing perspective. With the change over to 65nm, AMD has also sharpened their focus on power...

If we were to play a word association game with a PC enthusiast and said "Western Digital," it's likely his geek reflexes would immediately trigger and force him to reply "Raptor" before he even realized he had spoken. Western Digital makes many more storage products other than just the speed demons known as Raptors, though. While it is easy to be enamored with the Raptors, they are relatively expensive and offer only a fraction of the capacity of the 500GB and 750GB behemoths currently on the market. Our labs were blessed with one such behemoth from Western Digital, the... Read more...
Market share is the name of the game in the Computing industry and AMD has been slowly chipping away at Intel's market share over the past few years, with the release of faster Desktop processor cores with significantly better performance per watt, clock-cycle and dollar.  AMD's performance advantage also has allowed the company to further expand market share in the Enterprise Server arena, as was recently ear-marked by Dell's announcement of an Opteron-based product line during their recent earnings call. Not to mention Sun's successes in the same market space with their...
