At this point, it doesn't even matter who's to blame for BFG's demise, because at the end of the day, you're left holding the bag should your BFG videcoard give up the ghost. The company's days appear numbered, and BFG, which essentially pioneered the concept of Lifetime Warranties in the GPU market, is no longer honoring RMAs for busted cards. Bummer. In case you haven't been following, BFG fell on hard times when it was unable to secure shipments of Nvidia's Fermi products, forcing the company to ditch its videocard business. According to reports, this didn't sit well with Best Buy, which ended... Read more...
If you're a hardcore gamer, and you spend any time whatsoever looking over the best and brightest graphics cards on the market, you've probably heard of BFG Technologies. In fact, we had an interview with the company's own Senior Director of Marketing last April, and we have reviewed a number of their GPUs over the years. They've always been competitive, well-built, and solid recommendations for anyone looking to upgrade their graphics power-plant. But now, if you want a BFG GPU, you should probably get on out there and scoop up whatever is left on the shelves. In a shocking announcement made this... Read more...
In a market where dual-GPU, single-PCB graphics cards are readily available from most major OEMs, product manufacturers are increasingly turning to water cooling as a way to differentiate their products and out-maneuver their competitors. The superior thermal characteristics of liquid cooling allows companies like BFG to hit higher core / memory clocks than they might using air alone. However, H2O-reliant high-end video cards cater to an even smaller slice of the market—specifically, those enthusiasts with big money to spend and who are comfortable using water in their own PC. BFG's GTX 295 H2OC... Read more...

We can't imagine that Intel's happy about this, but one certain gaming PC vendor has just revealed two of the company's newest processors. BFG Technologies has just launched its new Phobos gaming rigs, two of which include Core i7 CPUs that we've yet to hear of. The Phobos Advanced ships with the Core i7 950, while the Phobos Elite ships with the Core i7 975. Both rigs are menacing, tall and potent. Oh, and expensive -- really, really expensive. They both have touchpanels on the front of the chassis which enable one-touch overclocking (among other things), not to mention an iPod/iPhone dock atop... Read more...

NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 285 about three months ago, and in our launch article, we found it to be a very strong product. As you are no doubt aware, the GTX 285 is a replacement for the GTX 280. The GT200B GPU at the heart of the GTX 285 is nearly identical to the GTX 280's GT200 GPU. The most significant difference between the two GPUs is that the GT200B is manufactured using a 55nm fabrication process while the GT200 is built on a 65nm process. We take our NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 coverage further here as we round up three factory-overclocked cards and pit them against each other. As enthusiasts,... Read more...

At the back end of last month, we heard a juicy rumor that seemed, well, perfectly good enough to be true. Sure enough, the whispers of a water-cooled GTX 295 have led to a real, honest-to-goodness product, though it's not being produced by either of the vendors we expected. Instead, it's being delivered by GPU mainstay BFG Technologies.The new card easily boasts one of the longest product names we've seen to date. So long, in fact, that we'll just put it out there for you to wrap your mind around: BFG GeForce GTX 295 H2O graphics card with ThermoIntelligence Water Cooling Solution. Got all that?...

On our yearly jaunts to the Las Vegas to attend the Consumer Electronics Show, we meet with numerous companies and see a myriad of products--some we can, and some we can't talk about--in what is always an absolute whirlwind of a trip. This year was no exception. Although the show itself wasn't quite as big as it has been in previous years in terms of attendance, it was nevertheless loaded with cool products and technology that filled not only the Las Vegas Convention center, but multiple surrounding venues, hotels, and suites all along the strip.We're certain many of you would love to attend CES...
