Back in April, we first gave you a glimpse of the extreme Asus ARES dual-Radeon HD 5870 GPU powered graphics card, complete with some preliminary benchmarks. At the time, the specifications weren't quite finalized and there was little word about availability in the U.S., but the card's impressive configuration immediately piqued our interest. The ARES was, after all, a "true dual-Radeon HD 5870" CrossFire setup on a single PCB. The Radeon HD 5970 was / is the fastest single graphics card on the market, and the Asus ARES would clearly offer more performance due to its increased number of stream... Read more...

Asus hosted an overclocking competition this past weekend and invited us out to see XtremeSystems, OC Alliance, and Team PURE vie for top honors and performance world records on both LGA1366 and 1156. I've got experience working with single-stage phase changers, which use air-conditioner compressors to cool a CPU down to roughly -50C, but liquid nitrogen-fueled overclocking is an altogether different kettle of fish. It's also firmly in the "don't try this at home", although the price of LN2 most likely makes this a moot point. The Rampage III board here is being prepped for subzero overclocking.... Read more...

The amount of videos viewed online rose 66 percent in the US in February, compared to the same period last year. The huge goose in traffic is interesting, but what might be even more interesting is how little of that traffic is enjoyed by sites run by television networks. From the figures, the only way networks can get anybody to look at what they're offering online is to get it pirated and uploaded to YouTube.Some networks said they are stymied by instant piracy in which uploads of their content make it to other Web sites just minutes after broadcast.The culprits often post the footage on Google...

You can bet Palm, Motorola, and any other smartphone makers broke out in a cold sweat today.  This is just speculation still, but RIM shares are up $1 (at the time of this writing) over rumors that Microsoft is interested in buying the Blackberry manufacturer. "Microsoft has been mentioned as a possible buyer," said Frederic Ruffy, an analyst at options education firm Optionetics in California. "According to speculation, the software giant might be interested in RIM in response to Google's recent announcement that it is interested in making its own mobile phone operating system,...

$7,000,000,000.  Can you guess what in the wonderful world of IT that number refers to?  If you guessed the weekly allowance that Bill Gates gives his children, you’re probably close, but not quite on target.It is actually the amount of market value that Apple declined on news that iPhone activations were far behind the expected sales numbers. “AT&T — the iPhone's exclusive carrier — said it activated 146,000 iPhones on June 29 and 30, a number that disappointed investors following some analyst forecasts that Apple would sell 500,000 or more iPhones in its first weekend.” Of course there...

Intel, after recently reviewing its memory technology roadmap, speculated that phase change memory (PCM) will possibly be available by the end of the year. Phase change memory can run faster and be manufactured smaller then DRAM memory and as a result Intel believes it may possibly one day replace flash memory. Flash memory can become unreliable after as many as 10,000 write cycles where as phase change memory can go through as many as 100 million write cycles before a noticeable degradation. This week Intel privately shared parts of it roadmap for memory technologies through 2008.... Read more...

What are you browsing HotHardware with? I bet I could get 10,000 to 1 odds in Vegas that it isn't AOL. But it used to be, for quite a lot of people. The only press AOL can get is the bad kind. But it's still a great big thing. What happens now? When it was the main ISP for Americans, AOL had something for everyone: chat rooms for soccer moms, programming for families, music for teens, etc. Such a strategy doesn't work as well for a Web destination, says David Martin, president of the brand consultancy Interbrand North America. The most... Read more...
