Photos of AMD's upcoming Radeon 6990 dual-GPU have surfaced on the Japanese website 4Gamer.net and the card's sheer bulk is an impressive sight. Instead of using a fan mounted at the back of the GPU that pushes air across and out the front, the 6990's fan sits dead center where it can simultaneously cool both GPUs. We're curious about how the air intake/outtake work in this design; it appears that the fan pulls air over the second GPU and pushes it across the first. No word yet on whether this card is larger than the 5970 but it sticks with the former's 6-pin / 8-pin auxiliary power connections. The front of the 6990 sports four display ports and a single DVI, but we're hoping this is something... Read more...
Hot on the heels of the arrival of their flagship GeForce GTX 580, NVIDIA is launching another new graphics card today, based on the GF110 GPU. As we’ve come to expect from NVIDIA, and AMD for that matter, when a new GPU arrives, derivatives based on pared down version of the chip typically get introduced at some point, but with somewhat lower specifications. Such is the case with the GeForce GTX 570 we’ll be showing you here today. It’s almost funny to say “somewhat lower specifications”, however, because the GeForce GTX 570 is one heck of a powerful graphics card, as you’ll see. We’ve got the full specifications outlined, followed by a complete set... Read more...

  Nvidia's SLI technology launched in mid-2004, and was designed to provide high-performance rendering power for gamers. Because the technology was brand new, and the fastest thing on the market, SLI configurations demanded exorbitant price premiums over single card configurations, despite first generation issues like software compatibility, driver problems, and hardware issues. Setting up a "budget" SLI system was simply out of the question at first, as SLI-enabled graphics cards were only available at the high end of the price range, as were SLI-enabled motherboards. Now that Nvidia's GeForce 6 and 7-series lineups (both SLI enabled) have been out-dated by the new GeForce... Read more...

Hello Everyone. We've just finished putting NVIDIA's new $299 GeForce 7950 GT through the wringer, and have a fresh article on-line for your perusal. The card we looked at wasn't a vanilla reference card, however. Instead, XFX sent over a retail-ready GeForce 7950 GT 570M Extreme, complete with a dead-silent, passive cooler. And to top it off, the card is HDCP-ready and pre-overclocked from the factory as well for a bit of a performance boost. Here's a snip... "The GeForce 7950 GT we'll be evaluating today comes by way of XFX. In typical XFX fashion, the company has mutliple GeForce 7950 GT offerings in their product stack, the $299 PV-T71J-YHF9, which is clocked at NVIDIA's reference... Read more...
Last week NVIDIA officially launched the $199 GeForce 7900 GS, and jointly announced the $299 GeForce 7950 GT.  In our coverage of the GeForce 7900 GS, we were able to reveal the 7950 GT's specifications and features, but were asked to reserve posting any benchmark results until the cards were made available. Well, here we are only one week later and that day has come.  As of September 14, you should be able to purchase GeForce 7950 GT cards from your favorite retailer. The GeForce 7950 GT we'll be evaluating today comes by way of XFX.

DailyTech reports that their sources are indicating that ATI's upcoming RV570 GPU will be arriving mid-October with 12 pipelines and 36 pixel shaders. Dubbed the Radeon X1950 Pro, the card will be priced below the recently introduced Radeon X1900XT 256MB and be doing battle with NVIDIA's new GeForce 7900 GS. At this time, it is hard to tell how ATI's GPU will fair against NVIDIA's latest performance GPU. However, the initial specs look promising as the reference board is running with a core frequency of 580MHz and a memory frequency of 1.4GHz. ATI certainly has an uphill battle ahead of them however as NVIDIA has been shipping their solution in volume... Read more...
Hello HH fans! We just wanted to pop in to let you all know that we've just posted a new article where we evaluate the features and performance of Asus' affordable P5NSLI motherboard, which is based on the nForce 570 SLI Intel Edition chipset. Here's a snip from the article... "We recently received one of Asus' new P5NSLI motherboards that's built around the NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI chipset. The Asus P5NSLI is a mid-range Core 2 Duo compatible and SLI capable motherboard targeted at mainstream users on a budget. While it may not have all off the bells and whistles of some higher-end products, the P5NSLI does have a relatively complete feature set that is likely to fit the needs of all... Read more...
Last month, Intel officially launched their new Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors with much fanfare. Based on the heavily hyped "Conroe" core and utilizing the modern "Core" microarchitecture, as opposed to the NetBurst microarchitecture employed in the Pentium 4 and Pentium D, Intel's Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors proved to offer huge gains over Intel's previous architecture. And as an added bonus, the new Core 2 processors ran much cooler and consumed less power than their NetBurst-based brethren, thanks to power-saving enhancements incorporated in Conroe. With the Core 2 Duo, Intel propelled themselves back into enthusiast space and knocked... Read more...
Fudo over at The Inquirer reports that their sources have indicated that ATI's upcoming RV570 GPU will be released with a surprisingly low $199 price point. Originally, it was believed that this GPU would compete at the $299 price point. Here, ATI's RV570 would be facing some stiff competition from NVIDIA's (rumored) GeForce 7950GT. Shockingly, RV570 will now do battle with NVIDIA's GeForce 7900GS and will likely have a solid performance advantage. In an market as volatile as the GPU segment, vendors always have contingency plans for situations like this. One thing is certain, it will be interesting to see how NVIDIA reacts should RV570 be offered at $199 as suggested.... Read more...
[H]Enthusiast has just posted a review of an nForce 570 SLI based motherboard from EPoX, aptly named the MF570SLI.  It was a flawless performance, but the crew at [H] gave the board relatively high marks overall.  EPoX has consistently made some nice motherboards, they just don't have the presence of some of the larger Tier 1 manufacturers. "Overall the EPoX MF570SLI showed to be a very stable and dependable motherboard. You do need to be aware of some of the caveats listed above and we highly suggest using the beta v91.33 video card drivers if you are using a NVIDIA based video card with this motherboard. While the 570 SLI chipset... Read more...

This morning, The Inquirer reports that ATI is prepping a more suitable answer to NVIDIA's GeForce 7600 GT in the way of a new RV560 / RV570 GPU. NVIDIA's new mainstream GPU offered performance which was very competitive with ATI's new X1800 GTO sku while being significantly cheaper to manufacture given its incredibly small die and low transistor count. Being made on a 80u process, ATI has codenamed the pieces made by TSMC RV570 and UMC's parts dubbed RV560. If you go back to our review of the ATI Radeon X1800 GTO, you'll see we were right on the money with our predictions. "However, we would not be surprised to see a new mainstream offering coming from ATI with a smaller die consisting... Read more...

It's been a long time since several pioneering companies bridged the gap between the TV and the PC.  What initially started out as a novelty is now driving the industry in a new direction with the merging of TV and Radio with the personal computer.  Today, thanks to faster hardware, and the advent of the mini-PC, manufacturers and users alike continue the push to merge the PC into our lives as a complete media device. One of the components needed to make this possible is a TV/Video card.  Without a solid video card and TV card solution, the "home theater PC" could not exist.  While each component can be bought separately, space constraints can make a combination...

Sneak Peek:  NVIDIA's GeForce FX 5700 Ultra with GDDR3 RAM By, Marco Chiappetta March 24, 2004 Monday, March 22, 2004: Good afternoon folks! An interesting package just landed in the lab, that we thought you'd like to take a look at. At first glance, the card below looks like an ordinary GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, but upon closer inspection one major difference is revealed... NVIDIA GEFORCE FX 5700 ULTRA WITH GDD3 MEMORY Unlike the GeForce FX 5700 Ultras available at retail, this particular card is equipped with Samsung GDDR3 memory. Most of you have probably heard that next generation parts from NVIDIA will use GDDR3 memory, and while we can't say anything for certain at the... Read more...
Chaintech Apogee AA5700U Redefining the meaning of mainstream By Robert Maloney March 15th,  2004 When we last checked in with NVIDIA before the holidays with our look at the 5900XT, we were surprised at its performance / price ratio.  Releasing the 5900XT no less than two months after the similarly priced 5700 Ultra raised some eyebrows however, as it seemed to sound an early death knell for the previous released 5700 Ultra cards. Still, some manufacturers are reluctant to completely give up on the 5700 Ultra, adding additional features in an effort to make the card more attractive.  What we've got in store for you today is Chaintech's Apogee AA5700U, a video card...

The BFG Asylum GeForce FX 5700 Ultra 128MBs, AGP 8X, and the Muscle to Get the Job Done! By, Jeff Bouton December 11, 2003 As 2003 comes to a close, we have to wonder if NVIDIA is looking to 2004 with eager anticipation.  The last year has been tough for them, to say the least, with a number of nagging issues plaguing the embattled graphics giant.  The once king of the graphics market is still struggling to set the record straight on the whole "optimization" topic, as ATi has strengthened their position in the market with a number of very successful product releases, solidly challenging the GeForce FX line.  To top it off, there has been a number of OEMs jumping ship...
