Creative Labs X-Fi @ PC Perspective | HH Perspective "If you're on the fence with the X-Fi, consider gaming as a big factor. At the moment there's no real quality improvement (see 24-bit Crystalizer and CMSS-3D) to audio or performance improvement with the X-Fi (see Game Testing). I would wait a few months to see which titles are going to support X-RAM and then decide on a purchase, otherwise your current Audigy 2 ZS will do you just fine which performs and sounds just as good as the X-Fi (minus the X-RAM)." LapCool 3 (LPC-401) @ Phoronix "Do you own a laptop? Do you have a hard time keeping it on your lap because it's too hot? Well we sometimes do. Most of our reviews here are... Read more...
Iwill ZPC64 Review @ AMDZone: "We have been testing Iwill boards since their early VIA Socket 462 offerings, and to tell you the truth we were a bit surprised to see them jump into the small form factor crowd. They did with a lineup that has certainly been different than just the normal bread box style solution. Amongst their most interesting offerings is the very small ZPC64 which at a mere 75mm wide still manages to fit a power AGP video card in it. Before we get to our testing of the ZPC64 lets look at the full specifications." Creative Xtreme Fidelity (X-Fi) @ CoolTechZone.com: "It's been quite a while since we have seen any major activity in the sound card arena. It was around... Read more...
LG LRY-517 VCR/DVD Recorder Combo Review @ Designtechnica: "The LG LRY517 Super-Multi DVD recorder not only raises the bar for stand-alone DVD recorders, but with the integrated VCR and memory card slots, it runs away with it. Whether you are transferring old family movie tapes to DVDs, copying new digital camcorder recordings to DVD, recording your favorite TV programs, or displaying photos or DviX movies from a memory card or CD, the LRY517 will be the tool of choice. " Biostar's iDEQ 330P small form factor system @ The Tech Report: "Biostar's iDEQ 330P is the latest small form factor system to offer something a little different. Based on a 939-pin Athlon 64 socket and NVIDIA... Read more...
Good morning and happy Friday to you.  The hardware news front is a little quiet today, but we pulled together a few items worth the read.  Check out two flavors of Mushkin RAM, then wrap it up with a new monitor from Creative that is worthy of your attention.   Mushkin PC2-4200 DDR2 Low Latency Kit @ Viper Lair: "We were quite pleased with Mushkin's PC2-4200 3-2-2-8 as it performed reliably and was quick as well. We did hit some hurdles in overclocking past DDR2-667, but in that case you would be better served by their PC2-5300 kit. Other than that, Mushkin doesn't package the bling such as flashing LEDs, but in turn their ram modules are easier on the wallet." Mushkin... Read more...
Good morning all!  There is a lot going on today in the computer hardware world.  My e-mail was loaded with a broad array of hardware reviews from primo headphones to the Dothan from Intel.  So get comfortable as we take a journey through today's hardware tid-bits...

The GeForce FX 5200 & 5600 Debut! The NV34 and NV31 Officially Unveiled By - Marco Chiappetta March 6, 2003 In November '02, during COMDEX in Las Vegas, NVIDIA introduced their eagerly anticipated GeForce FX GPU, formerly codenamed NV30.  The high-end GeForce FX part on display at COMDEX, was NVIDIA's answer to ATi's DirectX9 compliant R300, the core that powers the very popular Radeon 9700 and 9500 product lines.  At the time, NVIDIA did not disclose final clock speeds, or specifications for the inevitable GeForce FX derivatives, but we all knew they would eventually come.  Then, in late January we learned that the high-end part in the GeForce FX lineup would be branded the...
