When it comes to graphics cards for gaming, most of us desire the creme de la creme, but few of us can justify the expense of purchasing such a product.  That fact, coupled with the additional investment in hardware necessary to adequately back-up a high-end graphics card to ensure maximum enjoyment, can lead to some serious budget concerns.Fortunately, there are a number of mid-range products that often compete very well with higher end cards, while shaving off a fair percentage of the price.  Also common in this market segment are cards tweaked from the factory with higher clock speeds and enhanced cooling to elevate performance, which helps make some mid-range...

NVIDIA is officially taking the wraps off of their new GeForce 9800 GTX card today.  With its predecessor, the GeForce 8800 GTX's, excellent pedigree the new GeForce 9800 GTX certainly has some pretty big shoes to fill.  Its name alone will make many users assume the GeForce 9800 GTX is NVIDIA's new flagship single GPU powered graphics card.  And technically it is.  But we all know what happens when people assume. Thankfully, there's no longer a need to make any assumptions.  We've got a trio of GeForce 9800 GTX cards in-house from NVIDIA's partners BFG, EVGA, and Zogis and have put them to the test with some of today's popular games running at XHD resolutions in single...

NVIDIA's onslaught of new graphics cards based on the company's G92 graphics processor continues today with the introduction of the GeForce 9800 GTX.  As its name suggests, the GeForce 9800 GTX is the successor to the wildly popular and unusually long-lived GeForce 8800 GTX.We're sure you all know by now that the GeForce 8800 GTX was introduced in November of 2006 and sat unrivaled at the top of the 3D graphics food chain until the 8800 Ultra was released, which was essentially the same card with a different cooler and higher clock speeds.  From an enthusiast's standpoint, the GeForce 8800 GTX must be looked at as nothing but an overwhelming success.  Regardless of the actual sales...

Just about four and a half years ago, a company started by ex-Visiontek executives entered the already crowded graphics card market with the hope of capturing the enthusiast and hardcore gaming audience. The plan was to factory overclock many of their products, offer a life time warranty, and have a dedicated 24/7 technical support staff ready to answer any questions or troubleshoot any problems end users may encounter throughout the life of their cards. Fast forward to present day, and BFG is well respected in the enthusiast and gamer communities, and in addition to their top to bottom graphics line, they now have a growing motherboard, power supply, and even physics card lineup.

Virtual learning has been a big hit with time-starved adults who have jobs and other obligations and still want to continue their education. Now it's becoming more common for students from grades Kindergarten through twelve to get their education, or at least part of it, through virtual classes. Estimates of elementary and secondary students taking virtual classes range from 500,000 to 1 million nationally compared to total public school enrollment of about 50 million. Online learning is used as an alternative for summer school and for students who need remedial help, are disabled, being home schooled or suspended for behavioral problems. It also can help avoid overcrowding in... Read more...
John Carmack, owner of id Software, appeared at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference and delivered the first public demonstration of id's next generation game engine. It allows almost unlimited visual tinkering separate from the mechanics of the game. Tools to be provided by Id mean "They have unlimited flexibility to change as much as they want on the surfaces with no impact on the performance or the stability of the game," said Carmack. So once the game developers have done their part, artists can be let loose on the visual appearance "to make it look as good as we have time or resources to do." Multiple artists can work on different aspects of the world at the same time.... Read more...

There's a steady flow if news rolling in today. A trio of our compatriots have posted some reviews we thought you'd like to check out.  First up, the Tech Report has posted a review of AMD's brand new Athlon 64 X2 6000 . They tested the CPU with the 64-bit version of Vista, so if you'd like to see how it stacks up to the Core 2 Duo in a 64-bit environment, TR's got the scoop. [H]Enthusiast has a review posted of the Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus. As its name implies, this mobo is based upon and NVIDIA nForce SLI chipset, but what makes it somewhat unique is that Asus bolted together the nForce 650i SLI chipset with the older 570 SLI SB to make a sort of hybrid board that supports...

GamePC labs has a review posted this morning of BFG's AGEIA PhysX card. Lots of good information in this review, along with some some insightful opinions and commentary.  We've also taken a look at this card. For another reference point, you can read our article right here. "The problem is not the hardware. After seeing the demos, we know that the hardware is capable of some amazing effects and certainly, physics hardware acceleration will be the next frontier in PC gaming. However, the issue is timing. The cards are here, but there is no killer title to drive sales of the cards. To take an example which has been used a thousand times already, there is no "GLQuake "title to drive... Read more...
When Mountain View California start-up Ageia announced a new co-processor architecture for Desktop 3D Graphics that off-loaded the heavy burden physics places on the CPU-GPU rendering pipeline, the industry applauded what looked like the enabling of a new era of PC Gaming realism.  Of course, on paper and in PowerPoint, things always look impressive, so we waited with baited breath for hardware to ship.  That day has come and we've fully tested a new card shipped to us from BFG Tech, built on Ageia's new PPU. BFG's PhysX  Physics Processing Card Is this technology evolutionary or revolutionary?  You be the judge.  We also invite you to "Digg" our... Read more...
