Motherboard chipset technology isn't refreshed at the same fevered pitch that processors, memory or IO products are.  A CPU or GPU speed-bump is like low-lying fruit relatively speaking, but chipset enhancements can usher in a whole host of stability, interoperability and verification challenges.  Let's face it, when the product is the basis for a platform foundation, forward migrations can be painful if not carefully planned, so the upside benefits need to be worth-while for both the end customer as well as the manufacturer.  If you asked us a year ago, what Intel's path to a higher bandwidth system bus and memory access was, we might have told you serial links from the CPU to...

At the end of February '07, AMD released their first new chipset since the AMD/ATI merger.  The goal with the new 690G/V series was to bring improved integrated graphics to the market, with better performance and broader compatibility.  Initial impressions were generally positive; with an integrated Radeon XPress 1250, support for two monitors and options for DVI or HDMI outputs, the 690 series did bring something different to the table.  Since the 690G's release, we've spent some time with several models from MSI and now ASUS, with the M2A-VM HDMI being the latest model to land in our labs.  What's interesting about the M2A-VM HDMI is that rather than offering an HDMI model or...

BigWop is going to love this one.  Have a hankering for things made "right" back in the good ol' days?  Get a load of the these classic keyboards and get your farty old geek on... Steampunk's Keyboard Mod "The Model M, for all its clicky, built for combat, rat-a-tat goodness, is not the keyboard for those who like to type at 4 AM while their partners sleep in the next room. But if that's not a problem, then it's absolutely the right choice for any touch typist who learned to type prior to the age of ubiquitous cell phones, perhaps on one of the venerable IBM Selectrics. The Model M is a real keyboard." Marco has a model M, just ask him.  The thing... Read more...
Perhaps the only Mini-ITX AM2 motherboard on the planet at this time, the KI960-AM2 has a lot going for it other than a name that sounds like some top-secret military hardware. The board seems to have almost everything one could reasonably expect in such a small form factor and then some. Here's what Charlie from theinquirer.com had to say: "Albatron had the best mobo that I saw at CeBIT, bar none. It is called the KI960-AM2, a mini-ITX full featured AMD690 based AM2 board. There is nothing else like it here. In case you can't tell from the ratio of the socket to the entire board, this is either the largest AM2 socket you have ever seen... Read more...

There are only a few motherboard makers today who don't design boards with the enthusiast in mind. It's been proven that the enthusiast market, as small as it is, gets the most press coverage of any segment of motherboards. Thus, enthusiast markets do have the ability to influence purchases of an entire company's range of motherboards. Unfortunately, motherboards which are truly designed for the enthusiast are few and far between. Sure, it's easy to put some flashy heatsinks and some basic overclocking controls in to try to lure the casual gamer to their brand - but the true enthusiast demands more. Near unlimited access to timing controls, efficient cooling systems, flexible... Read more...
Verizon is burying FIOS lines to houses as fast as they can for their customers on the Northeastern seaboard. And they're beginning to offer download speeds that just might make their investment in broadband service infrastructure pay for all that digging --up to 50 megabits per second: Hungry for broadband content, I noticed that Verizon shrewdly rented space next to the press room, also known as the feed lot. Its exhibit displayed all the services and content available thanks to its ridiculously fast Fios fiber-to-the-home broadband service. It starts at $40 per month for 5.2 megabits per second, but it can go as high as $179 a month... Read more...

  Nvidia's SLI technology launched in mid-2004, and was designed to provide high-performance rendering power for gamers. Because the technology was brand new, and the fastest thing on the market, SLI configurations demanded exorbitant price premiums over single card configurations, despite first generation issues like software compatibility, driver problems, and hardware issues. Setting up a "budget" SLI system was simply out of the question at first, as SLI-enabled graphics cards were only available at the high end of the price range, as were SLI-enabled motherboards. Now that Nvidia's GeForce 6 and 7-series lineups (both SLI enabled) have been out-dated by the new GeForce... Read more...
