It's not too early to realize that the holidays are upon us, and Dell is preparing for them by introducing two new PCs under $800 today that look to be great candidates for replacing your aging bedroom or apartment rig. The Inspiron One is a new 23" touch panel-based all-in-one PC, while the revised Zino HD makes a good nettop even better. Starting with the One, this one is equipped with a 23" LED-backlit LCD touch screen, an optional quad-core CPU (Athlon II X4) and options for a Mobility Radeon HD 5450 GPU, a Blu-ray drive, and up to 1TB of storage space. The standard model ships with Wi-Fi, a webcam, DVD drive and HDMI port, but the main highlight seems to be the Dell Stage user interface.... Read more...
It didn't take AMD long to respond to the release of NVIDIA's new line of Quadro workstation-class graphics cards. The new flagship FirePro V9800 we'll be showing you here is the latest ultra high end professional graphics card from AMD, that competes in the same space as the 6000 and 5000 models from NVIDIA.

MSI calls it the world's first 3D multi-touch all-in-one PC destined for North America, and if you dream has been to actually reach out and touch the 3D images in front of you, this system is tailor made for you. The company's Wind Top AE2420 3D combines two emerging all-in-one technologies into one machine: 3D and multi-touch. The machine itself is pretty powerful. There's a Core i7 inside, a 24" HD screen (1080p), and the system ships with wireless 3D shutter glasses for one. For gaming, there's ATI's Mobility Radeon HD5730 GPU, and there's even a few USB 3.0 ports for use with the hard drives that you're going to buy next year. It also includes a 2.1 sound system, THX audio, an optional Blu-ray... Read more...

As summer winds down, the professional graphics market, it appears, is just starting to heat up. About a month ago, we tested the Fermi based Quadro 6000 and 5000 graphics cards from NVIDIA. Although they were a few months late to the party, our results revealed the Quadro models held a measurable performance advantage over ATI's then flagship product, the FirePro V8800. But as expected, the red team has stepped their game up by offering a new workstation card that looks to close the gap while offering multi-monitor support that NVIDIA can't match currently. The FirePro V9800 offers similar features found in the V8800 we reviewed in April : Cypress GPU, 1600 stream processors, 147.2 GB/s memory... Read more...

On September 1, GlobalFoundries played host to the first annual Global Technology Conference (GTC for short). While there were a fair number of partner presentations on display, the conference was primarily driven by GlobalFoundries executives and announcements. When we spoke to GlobalFoundries in March we remarked on the company's aggressive roadmap; we were curious to see if the company would still be on track six months later. Based on comments made by company CEO Doug Grose, GlobalFoundries is on track to realize some $4 billion in revenue for the year 2010 and plans to double its size within two years (it's unclear if this refers to revenue, wafer starts, or customer base). The company's... Read more...

A few weeks back, AMD quietly released a couple of new graphics cards in the Radeon HD 5500 series. For a while there, starting with the Radeon HD 5870 in late September of last year, it seemed like AMD was releasing a new series of graphics cards aimed at different price points, practically every few weeks. Things slowed down a bit once the company had a complete top-to-bottom line-up of DX11 and Eyefinity capable cards from prices ranging from about $49 to $600, but obviously AMD wasn’t quite done beefing up the Radeon HD 5000 series. The recently released Radeon HD 5500 series cards differed from their predecessors in only one meaningful way—they were equipped with GDDR5 memory.... Read more...

AMD may be killing off their ATI namesake on GPUs, but we all know graphics are still mega-important. And so does Fujitsu, evidently. The company's new LIFEBOOK AH530 GFX is one of the most powerful gaming notebooks around, but you'd never know by looking at the case. It's a small, sleek machine that looks like a standard student laptop or maybe even a stylish business PC. There's no 2"-thick chassis or 18 fan vents to be found. The trick here is the external GPU, which allows the notebook to remain small and nimble while giving hardcore gamers the ability to beef up the frame rates whenever they feel like attaching a graphics card. The notebook really is the best of both worlds. There's an on-board... Read more...
We have a couple of pieces of interesting information coming out of AMD this morning, one of them regarding AMD’s continued use of the ATI brand, the other about an inexpensive, active DisplayPort-to-DVI dongle that should make to cost of entry into multi-screen Eyefinity more palatable for budget conscious consumers. Over the last few weeks, you may have heard rumors about AMD no longer using the ATI brand. We can confirm that this is indeed going to be the case.  AMD will shed the ATI brand name soon but it is not happening immediately and will have no effect on existing product. We were told by AMD that moving forward, with the eventual introduction of Fusion-based processors and... Read more...
One of the ways that Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo gradually reduce the price of consoles is by adopting increasingly advanced manufacturing technologies that reduce the size and power consumption of the console's components. Microsoft has combined both the CPU and GPU inside the XBox 360 S into a single chip configuration; details on the new design are starting to leak. The XBox 360 is an infamous example of the problems manufacturers can encounter when pushing the performance envelope—the initial XBox consoles weren't designed with sufficient thermal tolerances which lead to the infamous RROD (Red Rings of Death). It's been several years since Microsoft patched that particular problem,... Read more...
NVIDIA has never been a company to shy away from a fight, even if that fight is very public. The company has been battling with Intel off and on again over the past couple of years, with comics and harsh words from NVIDIA's CEO leading the way. But for as confident as NVIDIA is about their company, their hardware and their software, we have always heard that there's nothing quite like getting a taste of one's own medicine. AMD's processors haven't exactly been the coolest bunch; the Neo platform in particular can warm an ultraportable up in rapid fashion, but the company has nicely dodged that in a new short film aimed directly at NVIDIA's graphics business. AMD vs. NVIDIA has been another longstanding... Read more...
The new 2010 iMac may be the most consumer-centric piece of Apple's July 2010 hardware refresh, but for power users it's the Mac Pro that'll get the attention. Apple's heavyweight has been refreshed this morning, but as with the iMac, no real major exterior changes are happening. Instead, it's all in the inside. Intel has produced quite a few major chips since the Mac Pro line was last refreshed, and now the machine is finally seeing some of that work integrated into its build-to-order sheet. The new Mac Pro line holds up to 12 processing core and is up to 50% more powerful than the previous generation, with the latest quad-core and 6-core Intel Xeon processors, all-new ATI graphics and the option...

When NVIDIA switched from ION to ION-NG, it swapped from including an entire chipset over to a GPU. At the time, NV noted that some third-party manufacturers might opt to offer stand-alone products based on the second-generation ION GPU, and at least one company is doing so. Zotac, already known as a company with a wide line of ION-based products, is now selling what it calls an ION GPU-A-E. The card features 16 shader cores and 512MB of DDR3, but its memory interface is just 64-bits wide. That was considered decidedly non-optimal ten years ago; it's positively anemic today. The card's x1 slot is also restricted to version 1.1 of the PCI-Express standard, which means a maximum of 200MB/s of bandwidth.... Read more...
The flood of new notebooks continues! Acer has already introduced a few new machines this week, primarily aimed at the early-bird back-to-school crowd, but now it's time to get serious. The performance-oriented Aspire TimelineX series is getting revamped this week, with a bunch of new components and a few new models. The TimelineX family of notebooks are all quite stylish, and they're designed to be light, mobile, yet powerful enough to handle even complex multi-media duties. Said to be ideal for "consumers, students and professionals on the move," these new machines have batteries that provide up to 8 hours of life. That's pretty great considering that Intel's Core 2010 processors are used,... Read more...
Maingear's got a new notebook, haven't you heard? If not, the company would like to know why, since you can probably see it from where you're currently sitting. The company has just revealed their newest 17" portable monster, the eX-L 17. According to them, it includes "the most powerful components ever assembled into a 17 inch notebook," and no matter how you spin it, it's perfect for on-the-go gaming. The company's really getting fancy with this one, offering 4 exclusive M.A.R.C. laser etching, support for Intel Core 2010 mobile CPUs as well as options for ATI and NVIDIA graphics. Users can select a Core i5 or i7 under the hood, paired with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 (1GB) or NVIDIA GeForce... Read more...
Microsoft's new XBox 360 S adds a variety of spiffy new features, even if it does require regular sacrifices of virgin discs. One of the more subtle (but arguably most important) additions is the addition of a thermal monitor. We don't know yet if the XBox monitors the internal temperature of the CPU or uses a thermistor embededed in the motherboard, but the end result is the same. In the event that the XBox detects an overheat, a red dot pops on in the center of the power button and the system powers down. It's nice to see Microsoft finally adding this functionality, but it's a mystery why the console wasn't designed with it from Day 1. Microsoft has never confirmed exactly what caused the Red...
