PC Perspective has posted a very interesting new article which investigates some of the bandwidth limitations for SLI and Crossfire chipsets. With the launch of ATI's Crossfire Xpress 3200 we reviewed here, ATI has made several allegations indicating NVIDIA's SLI technology was at a distinct architectural disadvantage. Ryan puts the marketing aside and walks away with a clear understanding of how the two architectures truly match up.The truth of the matter is that both the NVIDIA NF4 SLI X16 chipset and the ATI XPress 3200 chipset provided enough bandwidth for today's SLI and CrossFire generations, at the least. ATI's attempt to promote their RD580 chipset by showing poor performance numbers... Read more...
VoIP has quickly become a way to talk to anyone, almost anywhere, while bypassing the standard phone system. It can be cheap, but there are also cons, such as needing highspeed internet. BFR takes a look at the budding service, and explores the pros and cons of VoIP. "VOIP is quickly becoming more reliable and receiving wider acceptance. In fact, phone companies are already taking advantage of the technology to provide cheaper long distance rates. Like any emerging technology, however, there are kinks in the system that are still being worked out."... Read more...
Evercool H.D.D Air Condition @ Overclockersonline.com: "The Evercool HDAC is a very straight forward hard drive cooler that mounts in an open 5.25" drive bay. The aluminum body is solid and does a good job drawing heat out of the hard drive and the turbine fan performs very well and nearly silent at lower RPMs. In a tightly packed case or one with no front fans, this hard drive cooler can really help keep the hard drive with all your precious data nice and cool. This will extend the life of the drive and help prevent an early failure." Broadband Security part deux: So, how DO I get secure? @ OCModshop: "The first thing you need to do is log into your router. For my examples,... Read more...
Hey folks! After some internet downtime, I'm back on the net and ready to deliver the news. With my cable internet gone, but cable TV still remaining, I fell back to watching the boob tube to ease my boredom, though I had to endure commercial after commercial of Verizon DSL. It wasn't a complete loss though, as I got a few laughs from the irony that I keep wishing for James Earl Jones and Verizon to come to my town and save me from the dark side. Anyway, let's get to it! SilverStone NT02 CPU Cooler @ Overclockers Online "If you're looking for a quality cooler that you can use over several platforms, it's easy to recommend the SilverStone NT02. If coupled with some real thermal paste (Arctic... Read more...
The news is moving at a slow crawl this weekend, but have no fear, it will be back to normal once the week starts. Heh, yesterday a friend brought over his computer because it wasn't working... well come to find out it stopped working when his CPU Fan broke, and he used the computer any ways... while it was overclocked ;) As dumb as it sounds, he's still fairly new to computers and only used it to finish a school report. However this was unlike the time another customer had his CPU Fan stop working, I told him not to use it, and he insisted he had to because of a Pogo.com tournament he had to play in... now that is good stuff :D Hardware [M]adness in 2004: a Recap @ Madshrimps "The year...

More and more homes these days contain multiple PCs, and in this age of increasingly common broadband connections it's a no-brainer to want to connect these machines together over a WLAN, or Wireless LAN.  Doing so will allow you to share files and the broadband connection so that everyone can surf the web smoothly.  For sometime now, users have been trucking along at 11 Mbps and 54 Mbps using 802.11b and 802.11g components such as routers, PCI cards, etc. But, as with everything else built into, installed on, or just connected to a PC, there's always room for improvement, and this usually means doing something faster.  That's what X-Micro intends to do with today's showcase...

The Compex Parallel Broadband Internet Gateway Powerful, Flexible Connection Sharing Made Easy... By, Marco Chiappetta February 21, 2002 As Internet Service Providers (ISP) begin bringing broadband into the hands of more and more home and small business owners, the need to secure and share this bandwidth has become increasingly necessary.  Up until recently, if you were "talking tech" at home, rarely would the words "router", "gateway" or "firewall" get mentioned.  Times have changed though.  Now users are blessed with high speed internet connections and hardware prices have dropped so low that many homes are now equipped with multiple PCs. ...
