While NVIDIA has released a number of new graphics cards for the gaming market over the last year and a half, we have seen relatively few updates to their workstation lineup in that same timeframe. It's been since mid-2007 that we saw the last major performance update to the QuadroFX lineup with the launch of their flagship QuadroFX 5600. While the monstrous G80 GPU-based QuadroFX 5600 has no doubt had competition since its release, it's been able to effectively hold off competing ATI products to reign as the performance champ throughout this last year and a half or so. Early in 2008, NVIDIA released the QuadroFX 3700 board priced at the more cost-conscious (only $1,700) high-end workstation... Read more...
This summer the graphics war might be hotter than the temperature.   While NVIDIA is gearing up to release their next-generation architecture, AMD hasn't exactly been sitting on their laurels:“The 4800 range is expected start at less than two hundred of your yankee dollars for the 4850 variant with half a gig of GDDR3 graphicy goodness and the abilty to run up to four cards per system.The 4870, and 4870X2 to be launched in July, will carry 512MB and 1024MB of GDDR5 respectively.”We’re certainly eager to see how the AMD’s latest and greatest will stack up against NVIDIA’s upcoming GT200 series....

Who doesn't like a good overclocking article? PC Perspective takes the Athlon 64 X2 3800+, the bottom of the line CPU in AMD's Dual Core range, and attempts to raise the clock speeds to compete with the big boys. Can it really compete against AMD's Athlon X2 4800+? "By doing our simple overclock to the 3800+ and pushing the frequency from 2.0 GHz to 2.5 GHz, we can get the best of both worlds. While the FX line still holds the crown for top single threaded performance (and gaming) the X2 3800+ @ 2.5 GHz is damn close. And the benefits you get for a multitasking environment more than make up for the speed decreases you see in single threaded... Read more...
Hey folks, we're posting the final roundup of articles today. Goodnight all, enjoy the news. GIGABYTE GA-8I945P Pro Motherboard @ Techniz "The GA-8I945P Pro was featuring the new Intel(R) 945P Express chipset with Hyper-Threading Technology delivers significant performance gains with variety of new generation architectures including the DDR2 main memory, PCI-Express interface, and Serial-ATA 2 interface for improving storage performance. The motherboard itself has a lot of built in features such as Gigabit LAN, RAID, and 7.1 channel sound. Besides that, it comes with a good bundle of software."

The personal computer industry is about to undergo a major metamorphosis, due in large part to the recent efforts of Intel and AMD. For the last few decades, mainstream desktop processor manufacturers have focused on increasing the performance of their CPUs by raising their clock speeds, augmenting the base architectures with specialized instruction sets, and by making changes to the pipeline to achieve a higher IPC (among other things). Advances have also been made in I/O technologies like AGP, PCI Express and HyperTransport, along with a plethora of other platform enhancements that have also been employed to increase overall system performance. But even with all of these changes, most modern... Read more...
Good morning folks.  We've got a few memory reviews that should peak your interest, including some impressive PC4800 modules.  Follow that with an interesting Enermax PSU whose fans keep running even after you power down.  Check it out! G.SKILL Extreme Series PC4800 512Mb Kit @ OCTools.com: "The Extreme Series PC4800 512Mb Dual Channel DDR Kit showed tremendous potential for overclocking. The ability to run at aggressive timings at high speeds is something that overclockers have been waiting for for a long time. Running CAS 2.5-3-3-7 at DDR562 is indeed quite an achievement". Enermax EG495AX-EV @ ClubOverclocker: PC Power Supplies are one of those known components that... Read more...
Albatron's GeForce4 Ti4800SE Powerful Graphics on a Budget By - Jeff Bouton March 26, 2003 Albatron is one of those companies that seemed to come out of nowhere and rapidly make a name for themselves.  Just around the time NVIDIA was rolling out their GeForce 4 product line, Albatron slipped into the spotlight, and became a player in the video card market.  Then, in an attempt to gain a maximum amount of exposure in a relatively short amount time, they released a slew of review samples to hardware community.  Since then, Albatron has grown into a very successful manufacturer of quality motherboards and video cards.  Today, like many other companies reliant on NVIDIA's success,...
