Stepping back to look at who has the largest market share in the chipset sector for AMD socket AM2 processors, it's clear who is on top and who is not.  Take virtually any major motherboard manufacturer and see what they have to offer and in most cases, NVIDIA chipset solutions are going to dominate the product list.  It's a little ironic when you take into account the merger between AMD and ATI, but it's a safe assumption that AMD and ATI will be working to level the playing field in the near future as they work on their roadmap product offering together. Today,... Read more...
Hello All. Here we are, less than 4 months after the release of their excellent Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors, and Intel is ready with a new animal -- a quad-core processor dubbed the Core 2 Extreme QX6700. We've taken the new QX6700 and put it through the wringer with a barrage of multi-threaded tests. Here's a quote from the piece... "Today Intel is officially launching a new Quad-Core processor, formerly known by the company's internal code name, "Kentsfield". Kentsfield is the direct result of Intel's immense manufacturing and process technology prowess. Based on the company's... Read more...
To say this year has been a bit of a whirl-wind adventure would be an immense understatement.  We've seen Intel move from a back-seat position versus the Athlon 64 X2 with their Pentium D architecture, to commanding virtually all of the lime-light as of late with Core 2 Duo, not to mention running away with nearly all of the performance benchmark wins. If 2006 was the year of the dual-core CPU, then Intel left its mark deep in PC processor history as probably the biggest come-back story the industry has ever seen.  Core 2 Duo's steep volume ramp in the market was also...

  Though we're running the risk of sounding a bit platitudinal, this is definitely the IDF moment we're sure many of you have been waiting for.  We've reported to you on Intel's various technology announcements and architectural initiatives over the past few days.  And, from what we could garner from our sessions with Intel at this fall's IDF, the company certainly has a lot of bleeding-edge technology on tap that by all rights should dramatically affect the computing industry landscape for years to come. We've heard from both sides of the fence, nearly... Read more...

  What's in a name?  So often hardware companies name their products to paint a mental picture, or set the tone for how they want potential customers to view their particular component.  The names chosen are meant to invoke feelings of speed, performance, size or perhaps the supposed exhilaration you will experience when you see that piece of hardware in action.  With the latest gaming PC to hit the HH labs, we take a look at the Sabre Intel Core 2 Extreme Gaming PC from Systemax and start off by asking: What's in a name?

Hello Everyone. We've just finished putting NVIDIA's new $299 GeForce 7950 GT through the wringer, and have a fresh article on-line for your perusal. The card we looked at wasn't a vanilla reference card, however. Instead, XFX sent over a retail-ready GeForce 7950 GT 570M Extreme, complete with a dead-silent, passive cooler. And to top it off, the card is HDCP-ready and pre-overclocked from the factory as well for a bit of a performance boost. Here's a snip... "The GeForce 7950 GT we'll be evaluating today comes by way of XFX. In typical XFX fashion, the company has mutliple GeForce... Read more...

GamePC has a review on-line today of Intel's current flagship Core 2 Extreme X6800 processor. As you probably expect by now, the X6800 outperformed every other processor they tested. What's more interesting than the performance results, however, was the overclocking test. GamePC used a water-cooling kit to take a retail X6800 up over 3.8GHz.  By air-cooling our early sample, we hit almost 3.6GHz in our initial look at the CPU. "Today at the GamePC Labs, we've completed our look at the Core 2 product line from Intel by checking out the Core 2 Extreme X6800 processor. We've received... Read more...
