Good morning everyone. I know I said I would see you next week, but I wanted to stop by and give you another news update. We also wanted to ask that we all take a moment to honor our armed forces and recognize the hard work and sacrifices they've made since 9/11. It's hard to believe it's been 3 years since that day. Surely the world has changed since then, going down a very dark and uncertain path. Thankfully we have the men and women of United States Armed Forces out there trying keep us safe. We should pray for each and every one of them overseas, hoping they make it home safe and thank the others who patrol our homeland so we can go about a "normal" life safely. Thank you! Kingwin...

Well it's about time I showed my face again around here, eh?  ;-)  Between all the backend work here with the new forums , our new site design and new product launches, I've become a real stranger here, a real behind the scenes guy.  Yay... NOT.  I'd rather be in the mix for sure.  Never the less, I'm sure Marco, Jeff and Jay have been taking care of business for you.  It is good to be back though.

Back in May '04, NVIDIA introduced the GeForce 6800 Ultra Extreme Edition to counter the launch of ATi's Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition, and gamers the world over took notice.  Just a few weeks earlier, the GeForce 6800 Ultra was unveiled, and at the time it was smoking through benchmarks like nobody's business.  Then, about a month later NVIDIA announces this new card and it's got a 16-Pipe NV40 core running a full 50MHz faster than the "stock" 6800 Ultra.  On top of that, it was said that some AIC partners may even ship cards with faster memory as well, offering even higher performance.  Today, we'll be taking a look at just such a card. The eVGA GeForce 6800... Read more...

Good morning folks!  How is everybody doing today?  I take it you all had a good weekend?  It was a little wet here in good ol' NY, but things have dried out nicely.  It is absolutely awesome outside right now, sunny with a light breeze.  Come to think of it, I should fire up the WiFi and get out there.  Hold on a second...

When NVIDIA updates their product line, the GPUs usually arrive in the form of a value, midstream, and high-end variety, thus catering to all budgets or tastes.  Monetarily speaking, it works out for the most part with those in need of a simple upgrade able to get something on the cheap, while Uber-users can get a new card to brag to their friends about, both performance and price-wise.  It's been like this for quite a while, at least since the days of the GeForce 4 Ti4600/4400/4200. In this year's offerings from NVIDIA, there are three cards, the GeForce 6800, 6800 GT, and 6800 Ultra (and even a fourth if you count the 6800 Ultra Extreme).  They're all based on the same relative...

Good morning all.  It looks like my desktop troubles are over.  Man, it has been a long time since I've had problems with any of my machines and I hope this is the last of it for a while.  There's nothing like a reformat once in a while to clean things up, but I was try to hold out for SP-2.  Guess that wasn't in the cards.  Anyhow, now I can get back to being productive on the review and news fronts.  Speaking of news...
