There is a big push for various 3D technologies in the current market. Whether you're a fan or foe, the industry is pushing forward with 3D at a torrid pace. Recently, we had a chance to test 3D Vision Surround from NVIDIA and came away impressed by the experience. It was only a matter of time before we got our hands on more hardware featuring...

Each time a new CPU or GPU is introduced, iBuyPower is right there to issue new systems with the new hardware. It's a tough pill to swallow for those who just purchased the best that the last generation had to offer, but for those who love keeping pace with the rapid pace of technology, there's hardly a better pre-fab...

Oh, brother. Okay, we won't jump to conclusions and be immediately skeptical, but there's just something strange about how quickly the industry is latching onto 3D without any real proof that it'll work in more than just the cinema. Of course, when power house companies like Sony and NVIDIA get behind something, it leaves little choice for... Read more...
Half the fun in putting together your ultimate home theater setup is piecing together parts you hand selected after auditioning each one (you don't just buy audio components based on paper specs and price, do you?). It's similar to rolling your own rig, but if you're just not into that sort of thing, or don't have the... Read more...
Have we mentioned before that Sony is firmly on the 3D bandwagon? There's no question that Sony is pushing 3D harder than almost any other single company in the industry right now, and with huge investments in 3D HDTVs, 3D gaming (with the PS3) and 3D glasses, who could blame them? But one thing that has eluded the 3D industry in large part... Read more...
It's hard to say which company really sparked the 3D revolution, but it's safe to say that Sony will go down as one of the pioneers. They have been pushing the technology from the beginning, and they've been willing to spend serious bucks in order to make sure that 3D is available on their televisions, game consoles and even Blu-ray players....

Everyone's playing the 3D card these days. And when we say everyone, we really mean everyone. It's kind of crazy to think about how quickly 3D has re-risen to prominence, and now even PC makers are joining in. At first, there was 3D gaming on the desktop. 3D LCDs weren't too hard to find, and NVIDIA's 3D Vision kit helped gamers get the extra... Read more...
Yep, it's really happening. 3D content is finally arriving on television sets, which is arguably the last major puzzle piece that in-home 3D had to solve. 3D glasses are here, as are 3D HDTVs. And there's at least some demand for having 3D support around in the home. But if there's no 3D programming to enjoy, what's the use in having the 3D... Read more...
Nowadays, when you go to a movie theater, chances are you'll have the option of watching new releases in either 2D or 3D. Moreover, HDTVs and Blu-ray players now offer 3D capable features that bring stereoscopic technology right into your living room. Of course, PC gaming is also on the bandwagon as hundreds of games support 3D  out of... Read more...
In January 2009, we reviewed the NVIDIA 3D Vision kit which brought the latest in 3D active-shutter technology to the PC gaming world. Since then, 3D has exploded on to the scene as motion pictures, games, and other video media all have support for the technology in a major way. Nowadays, when you go to a movie theater, chances are you'll... Read more...
Call the whole 3D craze nothing more than a hyped up gimmick if you will (and maybe you're right), but if that's the case, this is shaping up to be one of the most lucrative gimmicks in recent times. According to the number crunchers over at NPD Group's Retail Tracking Service, Americans have spent over $55 million on 3D-capable televisions... Read more...
The HDTV industry has become somewhat saturated, and it's getting to the point where it's difficult to distinguish between models. But there's no doubt that you'll recognize Mitsubishi's latest television, as it looks nothing like the flat screens that are so common in retail shops everywhere. The LaserVue was a specialized HDTV that originally... Read more...
It's just a fact of life at this point: everyone's doing it, so Origin PC might as well do it as well. Of course, we're talking about 3D. It's the buzzword of the year (much like "HD" last year), and it's reaching into sectors that never dreamed of being touched by it just a few months ago. Origin PC has yet to produce a great many machines... Read more...
You hear that noise? That's the sound of the 3D bandwagon headed in your direction, and everyone's jumping on. That includes Toshiba, which has made available its first 3D laptop, the Satellite A665-3DV. Sure, the name is a little boring, especially since Toshiba is blazing a new trail for themselves, but the hardware inside is bit more exciting,... Read more...
Sony has bought in, and even Nintendo has bought in. There's 3D titles coming for the PS3, and there's a 3DS handheld coming soon; Nintendo even confessed to thinking about the possibilities of a future 3D home game console. So that's two of the main three game makers who are seemingly on board with 3D, surely Microsoft will follow suit soon,... Read more...
Is it really any surprise? It shouldn't be. 3D is going mainstream, and that means entering product segments that it hasn't entered before. Like gaming. Sony was the first major gaming company to confess that they would be producing 3D titles and supporting 3D playback via the PlayStation 3, and now Nintendo seems to be following suit. The...

It's a fact of life at this point: you might as well embrace the 3D assault, because it's coming at you whether you like it or not. 3D has managed to overtake the entire consumer electronics industry, and PC vendors are looking to make sure they don't miss any golden opportunities. 3D all-in-one PCs have already been...

Today at HotHardware we're looking at three of the latest additions to the ATI FirePro workstation graphcis card lineup, the V7800, V4800, and V3800. Without a doubt, the price and performance variance between the products will be considerable. The V7800 is a powerful, high end part that should be closer in performance to the V8800. The V4800...

Two short months ago, we evaluated the FirePro V8800 the current king of ATI's workstation graphics card line-up, which replaced the V8750 as the flagship FirePro model. Unfortunately, we were unable to test it alongside any NVIDIA workstation cards for comparison purposes. At the time, we were handcuffed by two... Read more...
In addition to the 3D-Ready laptop we told you about earlier, Toshiba is expanding its consumer laptop line with quite a few new models. First up are the new Satellite A665 and Satellite M645. Both of these models are feature-packed entertainment laptops with two new features: Toshiba Sleep-and-Music and Resolution+ DVD Upconversion. Sleep-and-Music... Read more...
It's true: Nintendo is entering the 3D world. With Sony already announcing that a number of future PlayStation 3 titles would support 3D, Nintendo has been quick to follow in order to keep pace. Microsoft is taking a slightly different route by focusing on mainstream tactics and a new all-body motion sensing technology, but we have to confess... Read more...
