Shimmer me timbers, they're at it again. Most of you should remember the texture shimmering problem with Nvidia's recent 77.77 drivers, which Nvidia claimed to be a bug and quickly fixed the problem. Now it's ATI's turn to address the issue since it also seems to suffer from a similar problem. As usual, we'll keep you updated on any new driver changes. Ahanix MCE 601 HTPC Case @ HTPCnews "Some HTPC enthusiasts are videophiles, some audiophiles, some are even organization addicts but the common denominator among ALL HTPC enthusiasts is that we all want, nay we demand, a high quality, silent, cheap, custom case with a universal IF/RF remote, a VFD, and it must have optional components that...

Yesterday, Digitimes reported that Chaintech was pulling out of the motherboard market, instead focusing on video card and memory products.  Well, this morning Chaintech would like to set the record straight.  Looks like they are not going anywhere. Chaintech Remains in Motherboard Business! "Chaintech Computer Co., Ltd claims today that it will continue its motherboard business. In addition, Chaintech announced its new name as Walton Chaintech Cooperation, following its 25% stake acquired by Walton Advanced Engineering, the leading IC testing and packaging house. Chaintech denies it will fade away motherboard market to clarify the rumors wide spread recently. Most people recognize... Read more...
Football season is back! Tonight, the New England Patriots squared off against the Oakland Raiders in Foxboro stadium, kicking off the 2005 season. If you didn't get a chance to watch the game, you missed out. The first half was pretty close, with both teams getting to the end zone and making some excellent plays. But as in usual Patriots fashion, the second half belonged to the home team. The Raiders were plagued by penalties, and the Patriots took advantage of that. Combine that with some great defense, they were able suppress Oakland and claim the 30-20 victory. Now enough of that, time for the tech...

Following up on yesterday's Nvidia optimization story, Nvidia has delivered a response. According to them, there's no shady business going on, and the whole thing can be attributed to a bug within the drivers. They say a new beta driver(78.03) has already been released to reviewers, and will be released on nZone once it receives feedback on the driver. Phew! All right folks, I don't know how much longer I'm going to have power for, this storm is about ready to snap some trees. Enjoy the news!

We have the world's first full review and showcase of Asus' new "Extreme N7800GTX Top" Graphics card for you today.  This card comes equipped with a great cooling solution that exhausts warm air from the card outside of the system chassis and allows for much lower temps under pressure at the card level and even for the entire system.  We should also mention that since it's based on the new GeForce 7800GTX, it's killer fast... Right then, it's killer fast.  So we tested a pair of them in an SLI setup as well! Go see...... Read more...
When NVIDIA launched the GeForce 7800GTX back in June, most of the retail cards we saw were cookie-cutter replicas of each other, at least physically.  About the only things that differentiated one card from another were various clock speed tweaks depending on the manufacturer or the software and game bundles that were included.  Regardless, with the design elegance that the reference GeForce 7800 GTX offers, we were certain it wouldn't be long before the various AIBs brought out their own customized variations on the product. Although its PCB design is still very much a stock GeForce 7800GTX layout, the ASUS Extreme N7800GTX Top is the first retail board we've seen that incorporates... Read more...
It's been less than two months since NVIDIA initially announced the availability of their new GeForce 7800 GTX, and already we ourselves in the enviable position of showcasing a third retail-ready version of NVIDIA's flagship card. We've previously showcased BFG's Editor's Choice Winning GeForce 7800 GTX OC and EVGA's e-GeForce 7800 GTX EGS, but this time around we have MSI's NX7800GTX in the HotHardware labs. Due to the fact that they are all based on NVIDIA's reference design, the MSI NX7800GTX is similar to BFG's and EVGA's products in many respects, but they differ in clock speed and perhaps more importantly in price. Read on and see what MSI has done with NVIDIA's latest top-of-the-line... Read more...
Hey folks, who likes mondays? Not me, but I managed to get a chuckle this morning from "Flat-screen memorials to the dead emerge" story over at the Inquirer. Anyway, I need to be getting back to work, enjoy the news. X800GT BIOS Update Boosts 7% Performance @ CoolTechZone "Powercolor appears to be making its mark with the X800GT, ATI's answer to NVIDIA's 6600GT. Since Powercolor is one of the first few board partners to actually have a X800GT in the market, it's getting all the attention it possibly could. With that said, Powercolor does have a strategy behind promoting its X800GT offering. Unlike other board partners that went with ATI's R423 chips in order to save cost, Powercolor... Read more...
Hey folks, I can't get back to sleep so I'm going to clean out the news box. Goodnight! nVidia GeForce 7800 GT Comparison @ GamePC Labs "Today at GamePC, we've compared two new GeForce 7800 GT cards which hit the market last week. From Asus, we have the Extreme N7800 GT card, and from eVGA, we have their e-GeForce 7800 GT. Both cards run off an nVidia reference design, but differ in terms of clock speeds, bundled hardware, and appearance. We test these cards in single card and SLI card scenarios against other high-end nVidia and ATI cards." ECS PF21 Extreme 925XE @ Viperlair "ECS have put together a very stable and well rounded package with the PF21 Extreme. It is very overclocker... Read more...
While browsing through the articles that flood our news box, the Archos Gmini 402 really caught my eye. It looks like a hand held game system, but it's more of a portable media center. It's not cheap, but it's reasonable considering the feature set and size of the hard drive(20GB). CoolTechZone has more details for you, so check it out... Archos Gmini 402 Pocket Multimedia Center @ CoolTechZone.com "There are six main features that make this product standout: PC autosync, video playback, photo wallet, connectivity, music playback and portable gaming. PC autosync would allow you to transfer files back and forth with an automated process. Video and audio playback are self-explanatory; the... Read more...
It's late on a Saturday night/early morning and things are quiet around the HH labs except for one dedicated (crazed perhaps?) Tech Editor.  A shot of the mayhem is below... We got a hold of a couple of Asus' soon to be available GeForce 7800GTXs - entitled the "Extreme N7800GTX Top".  These cards are clocked at 486MHz core and 1.35GHz on their GDDR3 memory, right out of the box.  Strap down a pair of them in conjunction with an Athlon 64 FX-57 and the benchmark run-times are cut down nearly in half in most cases.  We'll be following up with a full showcase of the cards in weeks ahead but I thought I'd toss out a bit of a tease for you in case you needed a tech drool...

Hey folks, any of you get to see the meteor shower tonight? It wasn't exactly spectacular from my end of the world, but a few bright ones zoomed across the sky, just enough of them to make it worth the mosquito attacks. Anyway, Nvidia has released their new baby, the 7800 GT, and we've compiled a list of reviews. Enjoy the news, goodnight all.
