GPU Guide, NVIDIA Inside and a cool breeze
Hello all... I'm sure a few of you have
found a few miscellaneous issues with the site here and there. This is all
part of the deal unfortunately. The move of our static html site to a
database driven engine and importing all our content in the process, is an
enormous undertaking, as I'm sure you can imagine. We currently have a few
problems with getting the articles categorized in all the right places, a few
broken links etc, small nagging stuff like that.
So as the saying goes, "pardon our appearance" during our renovations, we hope to have everything spiffed up real soon. Please feel free to send me a note, if there is something that is particularly annoying to you. :)
Juice... aah-yup... got that.
"These days, there are so many graphics card models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different configurations. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop GPUs in the market as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete."
There's pure speculation here on next generation ATi graphics cards, which I know for certain is completely inaccurate but hey, it's fun to dream right? ;)
"We here at 3DCenter take an in-depth look at the NV40 and its pipelines. NV40 actually does come up with full 16 "common pipes", i.e. it is a 4 "quad-pipeline" design. But, we need to know how the chip performs, not how many "pipes" it's made out of. We will detail a single NV40-pipe and discuss subsequently how all this quad-stuff influences the real performance."
"We all know that computers get hot. How hot is another story. There are some software programs that can give you some information about the temperatures, but how do you know they are accurate? These sensors are only as good as the programming that drives them. Hardware thermometers are much more accurate, and costly. So what to do, what to do?"
"Over the last year I've grown to expect good things from SilverStone. Whether it's computer cases, control panels or power supplies. They have show exceptional quality, design, attention to detail and innovation in their products. Today we'll be taking a looking at the Lascala Series SST-LC03 HTPC case. Will it continue SilverStone?s hitting streak and prove to be what HTPC dreams are made of or will it result in a sleepless night?"
"Buying a computer case really is unlike buying any other piece of hardware, as appearances are everything. The look of a graphics card or motherboard may also be important to some users, but quite often it still plays a small roll in the overall scheme of things. When purchasing a case the consumer will often walk into a computer store and pick the one that appeals to them the most. Since the case will sit in the users room or office, most of the time in full view, this is probably a good way for the user to base their purchase. However for those enthusiasts amongst us, simple things like a case can often be much more than just a good looking box. Thermaltake has just demonstrated very well that this can be the case for a case."
That's all for now folks! Don't forget to check into the poll on the top right of the page here, and cast your vote on what you think will be the next top dog graphics card for ownage.
