Hey everyone, I've got some reading material to help you fall asleep. Not to say that it's boring, in fact QuakeCon has produced some nice new footage of Quake 4. The lucky folks attending QuakeCon have been allowed to experience Quake 4's deathmatch, while the rest of us will just have to settle with some pretty screenshots for now... oh so pretty screenshots.

Hey folks, I hope your all having a good weekend. I'm just stopping in for a few minutes to update you on the news that's floating around this weekend... enjoy! C3 Expo 2005 Coverage @ XYZ Computing "It is conveniently (for me) located at the Javits Center in New York City so even though it mainly featured enterprise level hardware and services I figured I would stop by and see if I could dig up anything interesting. Some of the more interesting companies attending were Google, CMS Products, SilverStone, Pepper Pads, and NEC. In addition to the hardware their was lots of software, conferences, and keynote speakers." Nikon Coolpix S1 5MP Digital Camera @ Bytesector "It's slim, tiny,... Read more...

Good Morning Peeps, how goes the battle?  Things are clicking along nicely here in the HH Labs this weekend.  Yet another white-out with snow going on in the area, adding another 8-10" of the stuff before the day is through. It's all good though because there are many of us here on the HH Team in the Northeast and it only forces us to dig in on the bench-testing and upcoming articles for your viewing pleasure. In any event, I thought it made sense to go back to yesterday's news regarding the launch of the ATi Radeon Xpress 200 chipset for the Intel platform.  We gave you a sneak peak in our CES 2005 coverage not long ago but yesterday the chipset was unveiled to the world...

Good morning all :)  Sorry about the later update, yours truly is feeling really under the weather today.  So, I don't mean to be rude, but we are going to get things started so I can get some rest.  Here is your AM update...  Thermaltake PurePower 680W Power Supply @ Bjorn3D "After you stop drooling at the thought of having dual video cards in an SLI setup, you come to realize some practical concerns. Cost is the most obvious one. Most of us struggle to pay $450 for one video card, but spending $900 to $1,000 on two is just ludicrous to many people. Beyond the cost though are other important concerns, like power requirements. More and more power supplies are including... Read more...

Like most Athlon64 motherboards these days, the SL-K8TPro-939 is very nicely equipped with IEEE 1394, 7.1-channel audio, Gigabit Ethernet, a Promise PDC20579 SATA/IDE RAID controller and the always useful Port...

Good evening my friends welcome back to HH.  Things around the Canadian portion of the labs have been fairly mundane over the past week or so, and for that, I would like to apologize.  I have been dealing with some fairly substantial situations in my personal life; but, things have been resolved and my life is back on track.  Consequently, as of tomorrow AM I will be back in full effect (forum, multiple news shots, reviewage, etc...).  Thanks to those who have helped me out over the past little while, you have been a great help... News anyone??  AC Ryan Blackfire4 Fans @ Phoronix "If you are tired of those old generic fans sitting inside your case, you should be... Read more...
 The team at HotHardware have had a busy few weeks recently, with major releases from ATI, NVIDIA, AMD and more.  Top that off with the usual string of high-end DVD burners, motherboards and the like and there are no signs of it letting up.  Soon we should see motherboards with PCI Express starting to show up as well and some sweet hardware to fill those slots.  Currently we've all got some interesting hardware we're working on that you are sure to love, one that I will be posting soon will have a lot of you drooling with envy, I promise.  Sadly, that's about all I can say about that for now :)  So hang tight, stick around and enjoy the show, things are going to...

It's feeling like the calm before the storm here around the HH Northeast labs.  There is an onslaught of new gear on its way to us and a few of very large OEMs preparing for some major launches in the next few weeks.  If you take a look around at some of the Computex coverage on the web (I'll provide a link or two for you in the news here as well), you'll get an idea what's on deck in the HH Lab.  New Alderwood, Canterwood, DDR2 and PCI Express products abound people.  Hardware goodness and plenty of it, you've got to love that.  We'll be stressed on deadlines here in the next few weeks but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Morning juice coming at ya here..  Computex...
