ATi Mobility Radeon 9800 Coverage:
"If you are a hardcore enthusiast that is swimming in water cooling, this card is for you. BFGTech currently provides the fastest GeForce 6800Ultra on the planet. The price is hefty, though. At MSRP $599.99 it isn't for the faint of heart. That said, we don't ever remember seeing a water cooled piece of desktop computer hardware that carries a lifetime warranty either."
"The overclocking of the eVGA 6800 GT card was very impressive. Getting a core frequency of 420 MHz (that's 70 MHz faster) and a memory clock of 1.12 GHz (that's 120 MHz faster) put the GT past the clock rate of the 6800 Ultra cards that default at 420 MHz / 1.1 GHz settings. All that for $100 less in MSRP."

"AMD recently launched its socket 939 processor, which incorporates a dual channel memory controller and a host of other features. The 939 is targeted at high-end gaming and intensive workstation applications. TechwareLabs tests the 3800+ and answers the question everyone will ask: does the Socket 939 deliver the high end performance it promises?"
That's going to do it for this installment. Check back later tonight though, something tells me we have something else in store for you all!
