Good evening friends :)  I just finished watching the Unreal 2004 Tech-Demo video.... Oh My...  Now that is a drool worthy movie.  It is a bit large, but seeing what they are able to do with PS 2.0 and 3.0 in the new Engine is well worth the download.  I think Unreal 2004 is going to give the Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 a good run for their money... Intel 915 chipset Technology Preview @ T-Break "The new Intel 915 ICH6 chipset supporting the upcoming Socket 755 is scheduled to debut in about a month's time. Some information about this chipset has been making rounds on the Internet, like the lack of an AGP interface and Win 9X drivers. Today, we try to put together different... Read more...
Good morning everyone!  I hope you are all digging the new layout, I know I am.  Dave, Marco and Jay broke their respective behinds to get this completed and launched on Monday and the effort shows in my opinion.  My presence has been sparse lately with personal things taking up most of my time.  Fortunately, next week should be the last of it for me, then I should be back in the saddle, along with Rob who recently returned from his honeymoon.  So stick around, we have some more goodies coming your way soon! BigBruin.Com has a new review posted taking a look at the New Enermax CS-800TA-MW Case: "Right off the bat we notice a few things that make this case different.... Read more...
VIA PT880 Chipset Preview A Performance Preview of VIA's Dual-Channel P4 Chipset By: Chris Angelini December 8, 2003           For the first time since NVIDIA unveiled its nForce2 chipset more than a year ago, VIA is in a very promising position.  To begin, AMD's Athlon 64 is upon us, bringing with it an integrated memory controller that really equalizes the advantage NVIDIA once enjoyed.  In fact, the nForce3 and K8T800 chipsets generally fall within a percentage or two of each other in performance benchmarks.  VIA's leg-up comes in the form of an encompassing feature set.  Its VT8237 South Bridge includes native Serial ATA support...

  Intoducing the SiS655FX Chipset An Overview of Functionality and Performance By: Jeff Bouton October 2, 2003 By now you all know the drill, Intel or AMD release a new chipset for their processor platform and the other third party manufacturers, like VIA, NVIDIA, ALi, and SiS, are soon to follow.  This time around we are talking about the latest release from Silicon Integrated Systems, with their SiS655FX chipset.  Their latest incarnation is a potent package, challenging the Intel 865/875 family chipsets in an effort to offer some competition in both price points and features.  SiS introduced several new features to give the SiS655FX an edge over the competition, with the...

ATI RADEON 9100 IGP Preview Integrated Graphics for the Pentium 4 By: Chris Angelini July 7th, 2003 ATI's engineers have worked hard this past year.  At the risk of being redundant, they've escorted to market the R300 series of Visual Processing Units (VPUs), they've spun off mainstream versions of the same chip for broader appeal, and they've successfully implemented the R300 and R350 processors (operating at full-speed) into the All-In-Wonder family of multimedia products.  What a busy bunch of beavers.  But there are other aspects of computing in which the expertise of a graphics company proves useful.  ATI's rival, NVIDIA, already knows that.  NVIDIA's nForce and...

The SiS 648 Chipset Debuts A Comprehensive Look at a Pre-Production Shuttle AS45GT/R By, Marco Chiappetta August 12, 2002    In early 2002 Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. (SiS) released their 645 chipset.  Initially, many analysts were skeptical that SiS could deliver a high-performing DDR chipset for the Pentium 4.  They were all quickly proven wrong though, as time and again the SiS645 performed at, or near, the top of the pack in review after review.  Looking to build upon the relative success of the 645, SiS took the wraps off of their latest chipset for the Pentium 4, the 648.  With the new 648 Northbridge, SiS is also releasing their new 963 Southbridge which...

  Intel's Pentium 4 with 533MHz Bus and The i850E Chipset 2.4 and 2.53GHz performance with a 533MHz Front Side Bus By, Dave Altavilla May 6, 2002 There are many architectural attributes of Intel's Pentium 4 processor, that will drive incremental performance for CPU core, as the months and years roll on, in their battle against their primary competitor, Advanced Micro Devices.  Intel engineered the P4 core with a staggeringly deep 20 stage pipeline, that allows clock frequencies to scale with ease.  There are certainly pros and cons to having this deeply pipelined architecture.  However, in a market where MHz and GHz are king, not only will more clock cycles drive performance,...
