MSI, Gigabyte & Leadtek 7800GTX, Olympus Stylus 800, and more!
Following up on yesterday's Nvidia optimization story, Nvidia has delivered a response. According to them, there's no shady business going on, and the whole thing can be attributed to a bug within the drivers. They say a new beta driver(78.03) has already been released to reviewers, and will be released on nZone once it receives feedback on the driver. Phew! All right folks, I don't know how much longer I'm going to have power for, this storm is about ready to snap some trees. Enjoy the news!
"Today we're looking at Sapphire's X850XT PE, or Platinum Edition. Not only that, but we'll be testing it in the AGP format since many of our readers have perfectly serviceable AGP motherboards and haven't felt the dire need to move on to PCI-Express as yet. So kick up your heels and relax as we take a tour of the latest and greatest offering from ATI in the form of the X850XT and we'll see how it compares to its smaller brother, the X800XT!"
"ECS has a few things they can improve, but their product is nearly perfect for the price. I think it's time for us to throw away our notion of ECS being a generic motherboard manufacturer and start treating them as an up-and-coming force in the enthusiast market. So if you're one of those people who like waiting for cheaper products further down the line or just plain indecisive, you should take a look to see what ECS has in store."
"nVidia wasn't kidding when they said that their 7800GTX card will be available from most of the leading manufacturers at launch. We've already received samples from Gigabyte, MSI and Leadtek but they're IDENTICAL to the reference card that nVidia sent us. Basically, what his means is that any 7800GTX card that you buy from the above mentioned vendors (and probably quite a few more) AT THIS TIME will look and operate identically.
"I don't know if we're at a point of diminishing returns but I'll always take more technological firepower when it's available—especially when the price is right. With its 3x optical zoom, weather-resistant case, excellent image quality and extremely fast response, this is one of the best digital sub-$450 cameras available, especially for travelers and vacationers."
"The product features a zoom slider, which would allow you to zoom in on pictures, maps, documents and webpages effortlessly. Similar to other mice in its product line, the second half of the Wireless Optical Desktop 4000 features Microsoft's Tilt Wheel technology, which will essentially let you scroll through webpages horizontally and vertically."
