Well, it looks as though Daily Tech wants to end the week with a bang as they have somehow managed to get their hands on an actual X1900XT card from Taiwan and have thrown NDA's to the wind by posting some benchmark results. Looking at the numbers they ran and the numbers provided by ATI it looks as though we have some seriously fast hardware that will displace the GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB as the fastest card on the planet. Perhaps we're just getting greedy, but I would have really liked to see this next-generation core pull further ahead performance wise. Then again, the board was tested with a... Read more...
The Inquirer is reporting that ATI is busy prepping their Mobility Radeon X1800XT series to battle NVIDIA's GeForce Go 7800 GPU's. Considering the fact that ATI supposedly had to lower core frequencies to an estimated 445MHz (versus the 500MHz of its desktop counterpart), it is more than a bit surprising to see ATI not opting to wait for their mobile R580 part. If R580 is nearly ready as the rumors suggest and it is similar to R520, giving ODM notebook vendors an R580 part with a few minor changes seems like a much more strategic move on ATI's part. Then again, the Inquirer could be right and we... Read more...
Beyond3D recently made some rather disturbing comments in regards to ATI's R520-based flagship notebook GPU. Apparently, ATI is caught between a rock and a hard place with regards to launching a highly-clocked R520 part when R580 parts will likely be available in the very near future. Regardless, a mobile R580 part would still need to be qualified leaving the high-end desktop replacement notebook market wide open for NVIDIA and its GeForce Go 7800 GPU's for a large chunk of time.Still left off the list, though, is any type of high end product intended for DTR / mobile gamer platforms. M58 was scheduled... Read more...
The Inquirer has posted a brief but confusing bit of news regarding how ATI's upcoming R580 flagship core will compare against NVIDIA's upcoming G71 flagship GPU. In one breath, it sounds like R580 will be an absolute slam dunk however the post ends with what seems to be a complete contradiction. Head on over to read the article and make your own decision which GPU will be king next year.While some games track 3DMark closely, others do not, so ATI will probably be more than that little bit ahead on a number of games, but this new card is probably not the clean kill ATI would want it to be. The... Read more...
Well, the GPU gods must be smiling down on us all as we wait for 5pm to show up as the Chinease website HKEPC has posted what looks to be the first pics and details of ATI's next generation flagship R580. Fortunately, the folks at X-Bit Labs have pulled the meat from the article and posted their own thoughts in English for your viewing pleasure.Web-site HKEPC claims that the R580 will be called RADEON X1900-series and the family will consist of the RADEON X1900 XTX, XT and CrossFire Edition models. Later on the RADEON X1900 XL and some other models may show up, according to other sources. The RADEON... Read more...
Who wouldn't like to have 2GBs of memory in their system? If you're looking to see some high speed ram in action, check out 3dGameMan's video review of Corsair's XMS-4000PT DDR500 2GB Kit."While Corsair is a little late implementing their UCCC solution they have done a great job. I was a little disappointed in the overclocking result as I expected a little more. But remember, this memory is at a high default speed as it is. Getting the extra few MHz's out of it is a bonus..." ... Read more...
The folks at The Inquirer have been one of the few people with any news this morning. Fortunately, their latest post contains some new information on ATI's upcoming flagship R580 GPU that should help you make it through this slow Tuesday morning.

Tweaknews.net takes a look at the Corsair PC4000 DDR500 TWINX2048-4000PT 2Gig Dual Channel Memory Kit.  Clocked at 500MHz at 3-8-4-4 timings, these modules performed well, were very stable and are priced to sell."This two gigabyte kit from Corsair again is just a perfect example of a quality product. It is relatively inexpensive, performs well and is rock solid stable. As for the 3-8-4-4 timings, if you overclocking at all, don't even bother considering it a disadvantage." ... Read more...

IBM's products are the time tested gold standard when it comes to the computing needs of business professionals or corporations as a whole. "Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM," many say. There is a reason for this reputation; most of it relating specifically to quality and technological features that have been incorporated cleverly into the personal computers offered by IBM. You've probably already heard of the buyout plan of this part of IBM's business to a China based system vendor called Lenovo, and the gripes and forecasting made by some "industry insiders." For us, that... Read more...
Good afternoon folks. I've found one good aspect to the busy holiday season... more work for me. People want computers, which works out great for me since I just happen to build and repair them. Should I put some of the cash away? Or splurge on a new video card?

  The MSI CR52-A2 - 52X CD-RW Drive Breaking the speed barrier at 52X By Tom Laverriere March 14, 2003 The first CD-RW drive I ever bought was an 8X4X32X unit for around $200 beans and I thought it was amazing how fast that thing could burn CD's.  It took me only about 10 minutes to burn a full disc of songs.  I was loving life.  Back in the day (not so long ago actually), that was fast  It's amazing how far and how fast CD-RW drive technology has evolved.  First we saw a few 24X drives out there and then only a few months later we're looking at 40X and then 48X and...
