Is the SideKick back? No, not by name, but it definitely is back in spirit. Sharp, which doesn't have a huge amount of phones available for sale in the U.S., is about to get back into the spotlight with the new FX. It's a simply named phone, and it's designed as a "quick messenging" device, but it's capable of much more. It's also the latest AT&T Mobile TV-capable device, complete with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, an MP3 player, 2MP camera (with camcorder) and Bluetooth 2.1. There's also a Web browser, AT&T Navigation, and the ability to watch mobile TV while in a 3G area. The service is... Read more...
Greater Value Than Ever BeforeOntario, Calif., July 15, 2008 - In response to recent market fluctuations, XFX is taking the history-making stance of offering up to $120 cash back to its dedicated technology-forward customers who purchased its GeForce GTX 280 and GeForce GTX 260 graphics cards between June 16, 2008 and July 11, 2008. This offer is available only to customers and purchases in the US and Canada. Rules and certain restrictions apply."Market conditions in recent days have caused the price of these two graphics cards to drop significantly," explains XFX USA President, Eddie Memon. "However...

Just before the July 4 Independence Day holiday, we broke some news that stated NVIDIA had plans to drastically reduce prices on their flagship GeForce GTX 260 and GTX 280 graphics cards.  Then a few days later, sure enough, the rumor became fact and prices dropped significantly for both products.Anytime a halo product like the GTX 200 series gets treated to a major price cut so close to its initial release, early adopters are inevitably disappointed.  After all, they paid a price premium for a product that almost immediately lost a large chunk of its value.  Heck, in the tech sector,...

While there are quite a few manufacturers building GeForce 8800M equipped notebooks, almost all of them are high-end products that demand top dollar for the pleasure. Gateway's "P-Series FX" line-up of 17" gaming notebooks seems no different at first glance.  However, careful inspection of their product specifications reveals that the most junior P-Series FX model weighs in at just $1,349.99, a decidedly mid-range price point for this type of machine. Yet it's still powered by a GeForce 8800M, just like the rest of the otherwise high-end FX notebook line-up. This GPU choice alone potentially... Read more...
In the last six months we've seen a wide variety of cost effective, yet powerful, video cards hit the market. First came NVIDIA's superb GeForce 8800 GT last October which, despite being introduced at an upper mid-range price point, provided top-notch performance not far off from the best cards of the day at nearly 1/3 the price. The 8800 GT was followed closely by the launch of the thrifty GeForce 9600 GT just a few months later which provided similar performance for even less. Then, last week, ATI fired back with the excellent Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon...

As enthusiasts, we aren't too fond of the idea of running a PC with integrated video. Like many of you, we prefer a discreet video card for the performance benefits, even if it has to be an entry-level solution. Despite that fact, though, most of the monitors in homes and offices across the world are connected to IGPs, and not to dedicated video cards. We love the latest flagship graphics cards as much as the next enthusiast, but we aren't completely impractical. We realize that integrated video is more than sufficient for the majority of users who spend 99% of their time surfing... Read more...
We have just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, performance, and value of XFX's nForce 630i GeForce 7150 based motherboard, the cryptically named MG-630I-7159.  Thanks to its integrated graphics processor, the MG-630I-7159 sports VGA, DVI, and HDMI outputs, and it's got some other handy on-board features as well, like an LED POST code error reporter and micro power and reset switches.  Click the link below and check it out...XFX MG-630I-7159 nForce 630i / GeForce 7150 Motherboard...

Today at HotHardware we take a look at NVIDIA’s latest entrant into the mid-range workstation graphics card market, the QuadroFX 3700. This card has an MSRP of about $1,700, which puts it smack-dab in between the price tags of NVIDIA's mid-range and ultra-high-end products, although street prices for the QuadroFX 3700 are much lower than its MSRP. This card is based on NVIDIA’s popular G92 graphics processor, which has been prominently featured in their GeForce 8800 GT / GTS lineup at a very  competitive price point.  Likewise, with NVIDIA's G92 GL GPU underneath the hood, this professional-grade...

Earlier this year, we conducted a series of reports on both the high-end and mid-range workstation graphics card markets with a range of comparative tests. In our prior tests, we found performance to be exceptionally close between comparatively priced products from AMD/ATI’s and NVIDIA’s high-end and mid-range cards. NVIDIA is typically stronger on the high-end, whereas ATI’s cards are winning in the mid-range; it was pretty cut and dry.  However, once you start pricing these cards out, you’ll soon realize that there is a huge, gaping hole in the price spectrums of each respective competitive...

If you're a professional looking for a laptop/mobile workstation, NVIDIA has a new graphics chip you may want to consider before making you're purchasing decision.  Here's the scoop on the Quadro FX 3600M:“Engineered to deliver high performance and visualization of extensive datasets with extremely high image quality in an ISV-certified, notebook platform, the Quadro FX 3600M is available as a fully qualified MXM v2.1A type-III form factor mobile workstation graphics board with: 512 MB G-DDR3 memory 256-bit memory interface 51.2 GBps graphic memory bandwidth OpenGL 2.1, Shader Model 4.0, and...

Just in case you didn't catch the fresh link at the top of the page, we wanted to let you all know that we have just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, performance, and overclockability of the XFX 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition.  As is the case with XFX’s other XXX Alpha Dog Edition cards, their 256MB GeForce 8800 GT offering ships from the factory with a significantly overclocked GPU and memory.  Click the link below and check it out...XFX 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition...

By now, we assume just about everyone knows the GeForce 8800 GT's story.  NVIDIA launched the 512MB 8800 GT in late October of last year and touted a price range of $200-250.  But retail prices initially ended up being over $300 due to supply issues. You can bet that ATI was smiling a couple weeks later when the company launched the Radeon HD 3850 and 3870 and retail stock was available closer to MSRP prices. NVIDIA hit back, though, by launching the 256MB version of the 8800 GT and getting more stock onto store shelves. It goes without saying that NVIDIA wanted this 256MB part to remain... Read more...
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...
