Well folks, Christmas is over and I'm a few pounds heavier. Even after the feast, there's enough turkey soup in my house to live off of for a week :D Actually thinking about all this food is making me hungry again, so let's get down to business so I can get back to the fridge... Gigabyte N203 12.1-inch Centrino notebook @ hardwarezone "Tired of dull and common looking notebooks that have a stern business design?

Heh, snow and sleet yesterday, and now it's raining. I love New England :D I do have to head out in a few minutes though, so no time to chit chat. Check back later tonight to see what I've got for gaming news. Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse Review @ The Tech Zone "When I first heard of the MX1000 Laser my first thought was "I wonder if I could use it as a laser pointer?" The answer is no. All lasers conform to one of four classes, depending on usage and power. The MX1000 is a Class 1 laser device - extremely low-powered and can be stared directly into, even with a magnifying glass, for extended periods without causing any eye damage."

Good evening everyone, welcome back to HotHardware.  The day is coming to a close and in traditional HH style we have a collection of swank news from around the net.  So, with a bit of DJ Tiesto and a tall glass of G&G, I am all settled in for a good read.  Here is your evening shot of juice...  FutureMark 3DMark05 Glance @ IPKonFig "3DMark 04 hit the shelves in 2003, and was doing quite well with companies who depend greatly on well design software tools for benchmarking applications and hardware. But that event was shortly lived when word broke out about 3DMark 04 and NVIDIA sleeping in the same bed came loose on the internet. Basically, many sites accused 3DMark... Read more...
Good morning everyone, welcome back to HH :)  I was away last week at an Intel sponsored press event which was showing casing some very swank products.  With DMA's, HTPC's and Peripherals coming out the yin yang, I was right at "home."  Logitech Z-2200 Speaker Review @ The Tech Zone "Take Logitech's award winning top of the line Z-680 5.1 speakers, remove the center speaker, rears speakers, surround sound break-out box and you will have the Logitech Z-2200. Logitech markets the Z-2200 as a THX certified speaker system which sounds great for people who doesn't understand what THX is all about. Those who do know what THX is about will know that having a THX stamp doesn't... Read more...
Hey there HotHardware fans! For those of you that jump right to the news, I'm here to let you know that we've just posted a new review of XGaming's very cool, very retro, X-Arcade Dual Arcade Joystick. Just seeing this thing takes me back to my early teens when I spent each summer working in an arcade in a local amusement park.  And after reading Rob's review, I'm SOOO getting one to connect to the home theater PC. Playing Mr. Do, Galaga and Street Fighter II on the big screen is going to rock!... Read more...
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy", at least that's what Jack Torrance (Nicholson) in "The Shining" told us. What he was trying to say is that we all need a break from the usual grind every now and then.  Even here at HotHardware, where we're usually knee-deep in testing motherboards, video cards, and the like, once in a while something comes along that really grabs our attention, even if it is a little bit off of the usual radar.  We were actually a bit excited when we were asked to review the X-Arcade Joystick and we thought that you, our faithful readers, would be interested as well. What we've got for our show-and-tell here today is the X-Arcade Dual... Read more...
Good evening friends, welcome back.  With a majority of the HH crew playing with our new "toy" (the forum), the labs have been fairly subdued today.  The news-front, however, has been quiet active.  So, go grab a glass, I am starting to server the juice...  Arctic Silver Thermal Compounds @ XYZ Computing "The biggest name in thermal compounds (aka TIMs or thermal interface materials) is Arctic Silver. They have been at it for a long time and are the most respected company in the game. Currently their two most popular products are Ceramique and, at the higher-end, Arctic Silver 5. The "Arctic Silver" line has been around for some time- it is the companies... Read more...
Peruse virtually any PC gaming magazine, or point your browser to any popular gaming web site, and you're bound to find a myriad of information and accolades for Crytek's smash-hit, first person shooter, FarCry.  The game has some of the best graphics to hit the PC to date, and except for a few minor issues like its "checkpoint" based save-game feature, the single player portion of FarCry has been almost universally lauded as some of the best first person gaming in years.  The game's popularity, the complexity of the graphics, and Crytek's willingness to work with NVIDIA to expose their NV40's Shader Model 3.0 capabilities, brings us to where we are today. We were recently... Read more...
Major product launches don't seem to be getting any easier these days, at least on our side of the fence here in the online media community.  Competition is fiercer than ever in all of the major functional blocks for personal computing, whether it's Graphics, Platform Chipsets, Drive technology or Processors.  It almost seems like major OEMs are driving too hard in an effort to trump the competition.  On the other hand, high tech, as we all know, is a very unforgiving battleground.  And so, it is with cramped weary fingers and bloodshot tired eyes, that we bring you this showcase of Intel's major platform launch centered around their new Alderwood and Grantsdale chipsets. ...

Good Evening Folks! Just in case you missed it, we've just posted a review of Asetek's new Antarctica WaterChill water cooling kit. We ran the WaterChill with its fans operating in both 12V (high-performance) and 7V (low-noise) modes, and compared its performance to Intel's stock P4 cooler and Thermalright's excellent SLK948U throughout. We know Asetek's Vapochill does a great job of cooling a CPU, but how does the WaterChill perform? Click here to find out!... Read more...
  Water cooling is becoming increasingly more popular amongst hardcore overclockers.  Not only does water cooling provide the utmost in cooling potential, short of refrigeration, but it can also quiet things down significantly.  With today's processors producing upwards of 100 Watts of heat energy, cooling them down has becomes a difficult task.  Demand for high-performance cooling solutions has increased greatly, and certain so-called "extreme" cooling solutions are now becoming more mainstream.  Even your "average Joe" in the computer world is looking into water cooling as a effective method of cooling down their processors.  With the already...

Good morning everyone :)  Well, it is holiday time up here in Canada; the so called "May Two-Four" weekend (you can guess what activities occur during this time).  Though I was unable to go away camping as I have in the past, I think it worked out for the best.  Last night we got pounded with a torrential thunderstorm that would diffidently have put a damper on spending the night outdoors ;) Nevertheless, I am home warm and dry, and I have a pile of news for you... Cheating the Cheaters@ HardOCP "It has been a while since we editorialized at length, particularly where it concerns the video card industry, but it is that time again. We changed our video card "review"... Read more...
NV3X Architecture Overview A Look At What Is To Come... By -Chris Angelini July 25th, 2002   ATI didn?t fail to impress us with the R300 launch. Clearly, the RADEON 9700 will be the next leading performance graphics solution for the high end, at least for a while.  However, NVIDIA is not sitting idle, watching ATI capture market share.  The release of DirectX 9 is approaching and the finishing touches are being applied to NV30, NVIDIA?s successor to the GeForce4.  If you think of R300 as Germany?s Bismarck battleship, NV3X can be likened to Britain?s HMS Hood, sent to intercept and destroy the powerful adversary.  Of course, NVIDIA hopes the outcome of the confrontation...
