Intel officially announced the new SSD 320 Series drives yesterday, which feature proprietary Intel SSD processors paired to cutting edge 25nm NAND flash memory. This new family of drives, however, isn’t geared for ultra-high performance. While still fast, the overarching goals with the Intel SSD 320 series were increased reliability and security. In fact, despite being released after the SSD 510 series which we took a look at a few weeks back, these technically newer 320 series drives do not feature support for the faster SATA III interface. The Intel SSD 320 series drives are SATA II only. We’ve got an Intel SSD 320 series 300GB drive on hand and have run it through a complete suite... Read more...

Just in case you're the type who likes to skip right to the news, we wanted to let you know we've got a new article live featuring Asus' take on the recently released GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, the aptly named EN8800GTS/HTDP/320M. Unlike a few other 320MB GTS cards, the Asus EN8800GTS/HTDP/320M is not pre-overclocked from the factory. It does ship with a decent accessory bundle, however, that includes a couple of full version games. Asus also throws in a handful of proprietary applications and utilities in an attempt to further add value to their product. Head on over to the site and check it out...

A few weeks ago, NVIDIA unleashed the relatively affordable 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS on the world. On launch day, we took a look at a pre-overclocked 320MB card from XFX and ended up giving it an Editor's Choice award due to its feature set, performance, and overall value.  Today, we're going to shine the spotlight on another retail-ready 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS card, but this one comes by way of Asus. Unlike XFX's card, the Asus EN8800GTS/HTDP/320M is not pre-overclocked from the factory.

Hello Everyone. We've just posted an article featuring XFX's brand-new, relatively affordable GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB XXX Edition and their flagship GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition graphics cards. Here's a snip from the piece: "XFX's GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB XXX Edition sports higher GPU and memory frequencies, which will give it a marked advantage over "stock" models. In addition, we're also going to be showcasing XFX's flagship GeForce 8 series card here today, the GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition. Like the 320MB model, the GTX XXX is clocked much higher than stock. In fact, the XFX GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition is the highest clocked... Read more...
Here we are, barely 12 weeks out from the initial introduction of the GeForce 8 series, and NVIDIA is ready with yet another new product based on the GPU formerly code named G80. The new GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB we'll be showcasing here today is essentially the same card as the original 8800 GTS, except that the 320MB model simply has half of the amount of frame buffer memory. According to NVIDIA's reference specifications the original 640MB 8800 GTS and the new 320MB model share the same GPU and memory clocks, memory interface, stream processor configuration, PCB, etc. The actual GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB card we'll be testing here today, however, comes by way of XFX and it is not clocked...

The crew at Xbit labs have posted an interesting review of the DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G motherboard. What makes this article a bit more intriguing that some other mobo reviews, is that the ICF3200-T2R/G is based on ATI's (now AMD's) RD600 chipset. "The mainboard we are going to talk about today is the most unusual platform for the Intel Core 2 processors. It is not only based on the rare AMD Crossfire Xpress 3200 chipset, but also offers the enthusiasts an unprecedented set of overclocking-friendly options." Unfortunately performance wasn't quite up to par with competing solutions... Read more...
Stepping back to look at who has the largest market share in the chipset sector for AMD socket AM2 processors, it's clear who is on top and who is not.  Take virtually any major motherboard manufacturer and see what they have to offer and in most cases, NVIDIA chipset solutions are going to dominate the product list.  It's a little ironic when you take into account the merger between AMD and ATI, but it's a safe assumption that AMD and ATI will be working to level the playing field in the near future as they work on their roadmap product offering together. Today, however, ATI does have a chipset designed for the AM2 processor line, which brings competitive performance... Read more...

Hello Everyone. We just wanted to let you all know that we've just posted a new article where we evaluate the features and performance of MSI's brand-new K9A Platinum ATI CrossFire XPress 3200 motherboard for the Socket AM2 platform. Here's a snip... "We've been able to get our hands on one of the first Socket-AM2 platforms to use an ATI chipset, MSI's K9A Platinum. This board utilizes the ATI Radeon Xpress 3200 Crossfire chipset for Socket-AM2, and also is one of the first platforms on the market to use ATI's new SB600 Southbridge, the long-awaited replacement for their aging SB450 which was featured on several Socket-939 Crossfire...

ATI's chipset division, talented as they are, seem to have always played second fiddle to rival nVidia. Both nVidia and ATI started originally producing chipsets in 2001/2002 for low-end markets, using their experience in producing graphics processors as leverage to produce chipsets with integrated graphics abilities. Over time, both nVidia and ATI have become more experienced producing chipsets, eventually dropping the integrated graphics elements from their high-end products and targeting the enthusiast / gamer markets, who purchase more expensive add-in graphics cards. While ATI has produced some excellent chipset products over these past few years, nVidia has continued to dominate this... Read more...
We're unsure as to how things are going to play out in the long-run due to the recently announced AMD/ATI merger, but in the short term ATI still has a few products in the works for the Intel platform.  One such product, the upcoming RD600 chipset, is under the microscope at TweakTown. They've got some information regarding performance and overclockability, but testing was done on a reference board and there are no comparison numbers for reference. The writer also states that SLI has been officially enabled on the 975X Express chipset which isn't true - at least not yet. "That completes our initial first look at ATI's upcoming RD600 chipset from our top secret location in... Read more...
Motherboards featuring AMD's new Socket AM2 are starting to pop up, and Hardware Zone has one from ECS on hand. The ECS KA3 MVP uses ATI's Xpress 3200 chipset, is CrossFire ready of course, and unfortunately seems to have a few issues with it. "The successor to ECS' excellent KA1 MVP is here. Sporting ATI's top CrossFire chipset, the KA3 MVP not only arrives for the Socket AM2, but features the new SB600 Southbridge in a killer combo. ECS as usual plays their price card, but the KA3 MVP has its fair share of issues too."  ... Read more...
The folks over at X-Bit labs have put the microscope to Nvidia and ATI's new chipset technology. Though ATI has made some steady improvements with their chipset, X-Bit labs finds Nvidia's nForce 590 SLI the more attractive solution at the moment, especially since boards using the chipset are currently available. "The contemporary chipset market has become very much different from what we remember. There are much fewer active players left, and those who are still there offer their solution without any real alternatives to consider. Take for instance, Athlon 64 platform. Thanks to the implementation of integrated memory controller in these AMD processors, the role of chipsets in today's... Read more...

DigiTimes is reporting that motherboard vendors are voicing some concerns regarding ATI's latest Crossfire Xpress 3200 chipset and the availability of the matching ULI southbridge. Now that ULI is owned and operated by rival NVIDIA, vendors are worried that allocation of the ULI southbridge could become a serious issue. Fortunately for ATI, the company will be releasing a new southbridge dubbed SB600 next quarter which should offer a huge improvement over their previous southbridge offferings. However, it sounds as though motherboard vendors are still very much concerned in the interim.Motherboard makers, on the other hand, commented that although the RD580 can be partnered with ATI's own SB450...
