What’s faster than Visiontek’s new Radeon R9 290? Not the 290X, according to the graphics card maker. VisionTek used CES to formally launch the CryoVenom, a liquid-cooled R9 290 that can be user-overclocked for a speed boost of (according to VisionTek), up to 24%. The card’s one-year warranty covers the overclocking, provided you stay within the speeds VisionTek rates it for, of course. VisionTek says its CryoVenom R9 290, which retails for $550, has a GPU speed of 1175MHz and memory speed of 1450MHz, all while keeping temps low (125 degrees Fahrenheit in VistionTek’s tests)....

One short week ago, NVIDIA unveiled the GeForce GTX 295, and with it reclaimed the overall 3D performance crown from a resurgent AMD. As you may know by now, the dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 295 features a pair of re-worked GT200 GPUs, manufactured using a more advanced 55nm fabrication process than its 65nm predecessor. Looking at the specifications for the individual GPUs used on the GeForce GTX 295, however, revealed something interesting. You see, the GPUs on the GeForce GTX 295 featured a full complement of 240 shader cores, like the former flagship GTX 280, but they had "only" a 448-bit memory... Read more...

Hey gang, sorry for the lack of news postage here, looks like some of our guys fell off the radar last night :)  Well, tis the season, so we'll let'em slide this time around.  We've all been plugging away at some pretty nice stuff these days.  I'm working on two separate DDR2 pieces on some modules that are sure to please.  The rest of the guys are covering the spectrum, with a little something for everyone, so stick around, things are going to get real interesting.  With that said, I want to wish all of our readers a Happy New Year!  It's hard to believe '04 is over,...

Hey all, time for your morning news update. I'm up a little earlier than usual to get things going for you. Recently I picked up mountain biking to get my lazy butt into shape and I find beating the North Carolina Sun is a good idea. All this sitting in front of a PC is bad news for the body and I figured I better do something or I'm going to get decrepit. Rob has his volley ball league, Dave his Tai Kwon Do and Jay is a cycler too. Seemed like a good fit for me as well. We'll see what happens over time, but the cost to get started is enough to keep me going for a long time!  This is not a... Read more...
Well, the weekend may be just around the corner, but there's a lot of folks cranking out the reviews before it starts.  There is a ton of stuff to go through today, so let's get down to business! NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 and 6800 GT GPUs review @ Hexus.net: "What strikes me most is the performance difference the entire range of product from both IHVs has over the outgoing generation of parts. They all make 9800XT and 5950 Ultra look very very silly indeed. Something for everyone from £200 upwards." Shuttle's XPC SB81P review @ Hexus.net: "It's unappealing with the GMA900... Read more...
