There is an interesting article posted at NeoSeeker tonight. They bill the article as a review of Powercolor's X1800GTO card, but the crew also tests performance in a number of different CrossFire configurations. According to their results, there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason to purchase an X1800 Master card to use alongside an 1800GTO. "Our Crossfire testing proves that two X1800 GTO's, even on an older dual 8x board will still provide good performance. Despite the gains that an X1800 Crossfire Master card setup present, that's hardly a viable solution and should not be considered in place of another X1800 GTO. Hopefully ATI... Read more...
Looking for a card that'll play just about anything you want to throw at it, but won't break the bank? As Overclockers Online reports, the PowerColor X800GTO16 might be what you're looking for, just don't expect to be break any records. "If you're looking for a cheap upgrade and don't have intention on using either CrossFire or SLI, the X800GTO16 is not a bad investment for anyone in the market not looking for bragging rights."...

The old crowd of PCI TV Tuners may need to step aside soon, as their PCIe cousins head into the market. Sure, there are still plenty of people without motherboards equipped with PCI Express expansion slots, but the old PCI bus is eventually on it's way out. Today we're going to take a look at PowerColor's PCI Express based Theatre 550 Pro TV Tuner. Other than the way the card interfaces with a system, there's little difference between the newer PCIe based tuners over PCI, so we'll be focusing on the PowerColor card's performance, ease of installation, setup, and bundled software. Speaking of software, some of you may recall our relative displeasure with CyberLink's PowerCinema 3 software in our... Read more...
PowerColor X800 GT Xtreme Edition Review @ The Tech Zone: "Power for the X800 GT Xtreme is provided by ATI's R480 chipset running at 500MHz. This is 25MHz faster than the standard X800 GT. The Xtreme achieves this higher core speed with a better cooling solution. The normal X800 GT use 256 Meg of 2ns GDDR3 memory running at 980MHz. The Xtreme version use 1.6ns memory running at 1050MHz. All together, it adds up to a faster video card for just a few dollars more."

Leadtek WinFast PX7800 GTX THD MyVIVO Extreme @ AMD Zone "Leadtek's WinFast PX7800 GTX THD MyVIVO Extreme is simply an amazing card all around and probably one of if not the best 7800 GTX that you can currently purchase. With the excellent cooling technology with their heatpipes and fan which are near silent as well as running cool, pre-overclocked card, VIVO, great software bundle, and amazing overclockability coupled with the best performance and image...

Hey everyone. Well I finally got a chance to give the F.E.A.R. demo a run... it's all right. The game it's self, while not being anything we haven't seen before(except for the creepy little girl), seems to promise some intense action and killer graphics. However the demo seemed to need a little more polish, and unfortunately I am one of the ones who are experiencing horrible stuttering. If Monolith can iron out that issue and the other bugs that are found in the demo, we'll be in for a real treat later on this year. Oh, and speaking of the demo, Mr. Ghazi from TweakGuides has put out a quick guide for your tweaking pleasure. Now, on with the news. HP/Compaq TC4200 Tablet PC "As far as any... Read more...
Hey folks, here's what's been sitting in the box today. Goodnight. NZXT Trinity Gaming Chassis @ Phoronix "Of all the computer cases we've examined here at Phoronix, one of the best cases we've seen when it came to innovation was the Sytrin Nextherm ICS-8200. However, today up on the testing bench we have the latest chassis from NZXT. The NZXT Trinity features SECC steel construction, a thermal display meter, custom NZXT fan grill, and several tool-less features.

Klipsch RVX-54 Speaker System @ eCoustics: "The RVX-54 home theater system speakers were designed from the ground up focusing on use within a flat panel home theater system. The height and depth of the RVX-54 speakers are a perfect complement to the slim design of modern plasma, DLP and LCD high definition units." Chaintech AE6800 APOGEE (Turbo Version) @ Techniz: "The Chaintech GeForce 6800 256MB PCI-Express graphic card is great mid range graphic card. The performance of this Chaintech GeForce 6800 256MB PCI-Express graphic card is out perform the GeForce 6600GT even the ATI X700 Pro.

Mainstream Video Card Review: PowerColor Bravo X700 256MB @ HardOCP: "The PowerColor Bravo X700 256MB video card may not show any improvement with a 256MB framebuffer versus a 128MB framebuffer in games, but at least it won't break the bank and does seem to perform faster overall than a GeForce 6600." Shuttle XPC SN25P Review, New dual core bios for Shuttle XPC SN25P @ AMDZone: "To demonstrate the size changes of the Shuttle Athlon SFF lineup over the years we stacked 4 of them from oldest on the top to the latest on the bottom.  We start with the SN41G2, then the SN85G4, then the SN95G5, and lastly the SN25P.  As you can see the last two Shuttles have a significant jump...

ATI's new AGP Radeons @ The Tech Report: "For a little over a year, ATI's Radeon X800 series GPUs have powered the company's high-end AGP offerings. Over that time, however, ATI has introduced a number of new graphics products, including the Radeon X850 XT PE that boasts dynamic clock gating and higher clock speeds than previous Platinum Editions, and the Radeon X800 XL built with 0.11-micron fabrication technology. For months, these new graphics cards were limited to PCI Express, but AGP versions of each have recently become available. ATI has also bolstered its AGP lineup with the addition of an All-in-Wonder Radeon X800 XT. Together, these cards breathe new life into a graphics interface... Read more...
Good evening friends, welcome back :)  Along with Jeff, I was also having issues with my internet today.  Though I am on a totally different ISP then my counterpart, I was unable to access anything HH related today (e-mail, web-page or forum).  Yet, when I called in to complain, I was magically able to access everything after they "ran some tests."  Nevertheless, I am now able to access my e-mail which means I have a pile of news and all that glorious spam that accumulated throughout the past 36 hrs ;)  So, go grab a comfy chair and toss in some music, here is your news for the evening....  MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum @ Viper Lair "The Socket-939 is a step...

Good evening friends, welcome back :)  Since Marco will be flaked-out on the couch for the next couple of hours, I figured I would hook you up with another shot of juice.  So, go grab a mug, pull up a chair and settle in.  Here is your evening shot, fresh from the juicer...  MSI GeForce 6800 Reviewed @ VR-Zone Hardware "Overclocking the MSI GeForce 6800 yielded some very interesting results. From a stock clock speed of 325MHz and stock memory speed of 700MHz, we were able to overclock the card to a clock speed of 376MHz and memory speed of 798MHz. This is a 51MHz increase in core speed and 98MHz in memory speed. By all accounts this is a very good overclock considering... Read more...
Good evening everyone, how was your day?  Mine was fairly uneventful, just your typical Monday at work.  Tonight, the GF and I managed to find some mutual time off and decided a nice quiet dinner was in order.  So, with a belly full of good eats and an inbox packed with gold, I think tonight is going to end on a mellow note.   Here is your nightcap.  PowerColor Radeon 9600SE @ Legion Hardware "It is hard to accept a product like the PowerColor Radeon 9600SE and it's even more difficult to give it a fair review.

Good evening, welcome back to HotHardware :)  Before I begin serving up the juice tonight, I want to take a second and abuse my front page privileges.  I know, I know, such a rebel I am ;)  I would like to personally congratulate both Marco, and his lovely fiance on getting engaged.  I have been working with BigW. for almost three years now, and from what I know, Adrienne and himself make a wonderful couple.
