If you’ve been on top of the graphics space the last few months, you’ll no doubt be aware that NVIDIA recently introduced the GeForce GTX 580 and 570, which feature the GF110 GPU; an updated version of the GF100 which arrived with the GeForce GTX 480. In a similar move, the GF114 GPU that powers the new GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a fresh take on the GF104, which debuted on the GeForce GTX 460 a few months back. We’ve got a couple of GeForce GTX 560 Ti cards in the lab, a reference model from NVIDIA and a factory overclocked speedster from MSI, the N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II. Strap yourself... Read more...
Titanium. It’s a lightweight, yet relatively strong metal that conjures up images of sleek airplanes or powerful spacecraft. It’s used in a multitude of different machines and tools, from the Boeing 777 to surgical implants, where high tensile strength, low weight, and strong resistance to corrosion and high temperatures are desired. To us computer geeks though, Titanium, or more specifically its chemical symbol ‘Ti’, takes us back almost a decade to the release of NVIDIA’s GeForce 4 Ti series of graphics cards with its whopping 128MB frame buffers and the flagship...

Just in case you didn't catch the new link at the top of the page, we’re writing to let you all know that we’ve just posted a mid-range workstation-class GPU round-up at HotHardware.  We look at three cards in particular – two from ATI and one from Nvidia.  From ATI, we’ve got the new FireGL V5600 512 MB card along with the low-end FireGL V3600 256 MB card.  And in the Nvidia camp, we’ve got the popular QuadroFX 1700 512 MB card.  All three of these cards are very tolerable in terms of size, power consumption, noise, and (most of all) price . While one shouldn't expect top of... Read more...
Just a few weeks ago, we took a look at the two fastest workstation class graphics cards currently on the market, the FireGL V8650 from ATI/AMD and the QuadroFX 5600 from Nvidia. We found both products to be quite powerful and thought either one would be a solid choice for a high-end workstation.  However, the one comment which was repeated over and over again when looking at those cards was that unless you worked for a major studio or production firm, they were simply not very affordable. At nearly $3,000 a piece, the FireGL V8650 and QuadroFX 5600 require large investments.... Read more...
Today at HotHardware, we have two impressive workstation-class graphics card on the test bench. We’ve been given the opportunity to orchestrate a direct comparison of two of the most exciting graphics cards shipping today, AMD’s ATI FireGL V8650 and NVIDIA’s QuadroFX 5600.  The V8650 is a monstrous version of ATI’s R600 graphics processor with 2GB of memory attached, whereas the FX 5600 is the 1.5GB heavy workstation cousin of the GeForce 8800 Ultra, both of which use NVIDIA’s G80 processor. Both cards are phenomenally large, as well.  Click the link below and take a look... ATI FireGL... Read more...
While high-end workstation graphics cards may be based on roughly the same core architectures as gaming-targeted graphics cards, their purposes in life are very different. While they both accomplish the same task, processing commands and rendering images on-screen, workstation cards endure a more strenuous existence than their gaming brethren. Workstation cards are used to solve huge, mission-critical problems, like helping engineers design and build cars; helping architects to planning and construct buildings, and even help to our friendly oil and gas companies to provide more...

This morning, The Inquirer reports that ATI is prepping a more suitable answer to NVIDIA's GeForce 7600 GT in the way of a new RV560 / RV570 GPU. NVIDIA's new mainstream GPU offered performance which was very competitive with ATI's new X1800 GTO sku while being significantly cheaper to manufacture given its incredibly small die and low transistor count. Being made on a 80u process, ATI has codenamed the pieces made by TSMC RV570 and UMC's parts dubbed RV560. If you go back to our review of the ATI Radeon X1800 GTO, you'll see we were right on the money with our predictions. "However, we would... Read more...
Well folks, as you probably guessed, the news today is pretty much made up of GeForce 7800 GTX reviews. If you direct your eyes to the post below, Jeff has compiled a list of them. Enjoy! Patriot PC2-5600 XBLK Dual Channel Memory Kit review @ Xtreme Resources "The move to the DDR2 memory subsystem seems to be picking up momentum lately as there are numerous memory manufactures offering higher speed grade modules compared to several months ago. Intel is the first to utlize DDR2 and AMD continues to stay with DDR and may move up to DDR2 in the future. Today, we will examine and test the PC2-5600... Read more...
Major product launches don't seem to be getting any easier these days, at least on our side of the fence here in the online media community.  Competition is fiercer than ever in all of the major functional blocks for personal computing, whether it's Graphics, Platform Chipsets, Drive technology or Processors.  It almost seems like major OEMs are driving too hard in an effort to trump the competition.  On the other hand, high tech, as we all know, is a very unforgiving battleground.  And so, it is with cramped weary fingers and bloodshot tired eyes, that we bring you this showcase...

The AOpen Aeolus FX5600S AOpen Enters the Mainstream with Some Punch By - Tom Laverriere December 3, 2003 NVIDIA and ATi currently offer PC graphics solutions they refer to as "mainstream" products, since that is the kind of card you will find in an average (versus "enthusiast") system, where the bulk of the market volume is driven.  NVIDIA offers their mainstream product in the form of the GeForce FX 5600 GPU and more recently the GeForce FX 5700.  These cards may be on many wish-lists this holiday season, with their excellent price/performance ratio .  The GeForce...

IBM's DDRS34560D - 4.5 Gig Ultra 2 SCSI LVD Drive   SCSI for the masses!       SCSI, use to conjure up memories of difficult set up and lots of time spent tweaking with settings in the SCSI BIOS trying to get a drive to run at peak performance. Not so with many of today's SCSI Drives. IBM has a full arsenal of high performance SCSI drives all of which are all easily configured and set up due to Ultra 2 LVD SCSI Features. I had this drive in, up and running in about 15 minutes. This drive also has built in SCSI Termination. You have to terminate the end of the cable in the chain... Read more...
