There's a scene in Step Brothers where Brennan Huff, played by Will Ferrell, asks Dale Doback, played by John. C. Reilly, "Did we just become best friends?" The answer is an emphatic "Yep!," and the two then decide to go practice karate in the garage. AMD and Nvidia don't live together, nor would we go so far to tag them as BFFs, but the two graphics rivals did just decide to roundhouse the tech industry with a surprise announcement: Nvidia, at long last, is licensing its SLI technology to AMD. It's. About. Time! That's what you're thinking, that's what we're thinking, that's what everyone is thinking.... Read more...
In addition to their big press conference yesterday, NVIDIA was out and about showing off a few more of their wares at some of the other press events that take place during the Consumer Electronics Show. While walking through the Digital Experience event at Ceasar's Palace, we spotted these piece of kit that we thought you'd all like to check out. Below are the "Kegputer" and a hot new Dell gaming notebook... Here we have the Kegputer featuring some of the fastest components on the market, currently, including a pair of GeForce GTX 580s running in SLI mode. For more details, keep an eye out for...

Remember LucidLogix Technologies? They're the ones intent on removing any and all potential roadblocks to configuring a multi-GPU system. You know, those little annoyances like picking the right chipset for your graphics hardware (SLI or CrossFire-X) and only pairing same make/model cards with one another. LucidLogix sidestepped these challenges with its HydraLogix 200 processor, a wonder chip that motherboard vendors could slap onto their boards that would allow system builders to mix and match videocards from AMD and Nvidia, as well as cards from different generations. Quick, name one board that... Read more...

Not long ago, we reviewed the entire FirePro workstation graphics card lineup from ATI. With the V8800, our testing revealed considerable performance gains over the previous generation V8750, coupled with a lower price point. Surely, that's a combination that consumers can appreciate, especially for those looking to upgrade sooner, rather than later. But, at the time, the market was not yet settled as we anxiously awaited a response to ATI's FirePro products from NVIDIA. Thankfully, the wait is over as the launch of a new series of professional graphics cards from NVIDIA based on the company's... Read more...

There are two main types of road warriors in this world. First, there are the ones who value portability over all else. These users are more concerned with battery life and ease of transportation than they are with raw performance, and it's because of them that netbooks -- the very epitome of portability -- have become such a popular market segment. At the other end of the spectrum sit the users who crave as much performance as they can get, and they're willing to trade battery life and lightweight designs to get it. At the extreme end, we call these mobile PCs 'desktop replacements,' which is... Read more...

Talk about an obscene amount of power. AVADirect has begun selling what it claims is the world's most powerful i7 SLI gaming notebook  -- the Clevo X8100 -- and after taking a peek at the spec sheet, we won't argue. Every bit the desktop replacement, only the chassis qualifies this one as a notebook, even if the hardware under the hood screams otherwise.

Some of the most impressive booths at CES 2010 used walls of screens that were spanned and combined to display one scene. The experience is similar to walking into Best Buy and standing in the middle of the TV section while surrounded with LCDs and Plasmas, but perhaps on a grander scale. While companies have been using this tactic for years in order to leave a lasting impression on consumers, gamers are now able to make use of multiple screens in order to maximize the adventure. Without a doubt, multi-panel gaming is the hottest ticket in the enthusiast scene. While ATI's Eyefinity has been... Read more...

When Intel introduced its LGA1166 Lynnfield processors earlier this fall, one of its goals was to introduce Nehalem's advanced technology at lower price points. To that end, Digital Storm has designed a high-end system around the P55 chipset and Core i5 processor. At a price of ~$1900, the customized system isn't what you'd call cheap, but it's still less expensive than some of the Core i7 PCs we've seen recently, several of which landed between $3100-$4000 dollars. At first glance, the 2.67GHz Core i5 might not seem to be capable competition for Core i7 processors running at 3.2GHz and above,... Read more...
