USB 3.0 is continuing to flourish in a big way, and while it's not unexpected to see the big names (Seagate, Western Digital, etc.) pick up the protocol, you know things are really starting to heat up when the smaller ones do as well. Walton Chaintech has just introduced what they call the "smallest USB 3.0 device in the world," with that device being the Apogee-branded Astro Drive Series A101. The red and silver pendant is the smallest USB 3.0 thumb drive available for purchase, boasting maximum read speeds of 186MB/sec and write speeds of 130MB/sec. It's available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities,... Read more...
Here's one thing we can all agree on: SSDs are awesome, and far superior to HDDs in almost every scenario imaginable. Here's another we can agree on: SSDs are still priced far too high for most to give them a second glance. For years now, solid state storage has been breaking benchmarks left and right, but SSDs are still considered a niche product because of the prohibitive pricing surrounding them. In order to bring SSD-like performance to your next computer without you having to actually pony up and pay for an SSD, Walton Chaintech has launched a unique new solution that combines the speed of...

Seriously folks, we couldn't make this stuff up if we tried. In fact, this is the stuff that pure comedic gold is made of. Duke Nukem Forever, which is arguably the most highly hyped game to never emerge in official fashion, was thought to extinguished forever when 3D Realms (its developer) went under earlier this month. Weeks later, the game has resurfaced in conversation yet again, further proving the point that this title simply will not ever die. According to a blurb over at Bloomberg, Take-Two Interactive Software, which makes the heralded Grand Theft Auto series of video games, has sued Apogee... Read more...
For those still holding your breath for DNF, ye of great faith, it looks like the game might still see the light of day. It turns out that 3D Realms was simply trying too hard to beat some really impressive games. It might seem a tad bit strange at first, given that Duke 3D relied more on a sense of humor than anything technically impressive. However, times have changed and look at the incredible changes the whole genre has undergone since then. Games like Half-Life, Prey, CS, Battlefield 1942, Call of Duty, and the list just goes on and on. Even games that have impressive graphics but basic game... Read more...
Klipsch RVX-54 Speaker System @ eCoustics: "The RVX-54 home theater system speakers were designed from the ground up focusing on use within a flat panel home theater system. The height and depth of the RVX-54 speakers are a perfect complement to the slim design of modern plasma, DLP and LCD high definition units."

Chaintech Apogee AA5700U Redefining the meaning of mainstream By Robert Maloney March 15th,  2004 When we last checked in with NVIDIA before the holidays with our look at the 5900XT, we were surprised at its performance / price ratio.  Releasing the 5900XT no less than two months after the similarly priced 5700 Ultra raised some eyebrows however, as it seemed to sound an early death knell for the previous released 5700 Ultra cards. Still, some manufacturers are reluctant to completely give up on the 5700 Ultra, adding additional features in an effort to make the card more... Read more...
