While much of the camera world gunning for mirrorless expansion, Nikon's staying focused on the high-end. But, in an effort to battle recent efforts from Olympus and Canon, it's making access to full-frame DSLRs a bit easier. The company's newest camera is the D600, a full-frame (FX) camera that's much smaller than the D4, D3 and D800, delivering a 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor, an EXPEED 3 image processor and support for 1080p HD movie recording. Also, like the D3200, this one will support wireless share and capturing through an iOS and / or Android app. The optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter is necessary to make that magic work, with it plugging into the USB port on the unit's side. There's also... Read more...
The crew at Xbit labs have posted an interesting review of the DFI LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R/G motherboard. What makes this article a bit more intriguing that some other mobo reviews, is that the ICF3200-T2R/G is based on ATI's (now AMD's) RD600 chipset. "The mainboard we are going to talk about today is the most unusual platform for the Intel Core 2 processors. It is not only based on the rare AMD Crossfire Xpress 3200 chipset, but also offers the enthusiasts an unprecedented set of overclocking-friendly options." Unfortunately performance wasn't quite up to par with competing solutions... Read more...
Despite rumors last week that motherboard manufacturers were shunning the RD600 chipset for fear of some sort of backlash from Intel, ATI is claiming the Conroe-Compatible RD600 chipset will roll-out as planned next month.  According to the story on Digitimes, however, ATI's bus license only allows for official support of 1066MHz and lower bus speed, which could limit the chipset's long-term appeal as Intel has plans to introduce a 1,333MHz FSB during the first half of next year. "ATI Technologies, set to be acquired by AMD, has rescheduled the launch of its RD600 chipset supporting the Intel platform until October, with motherboard makers showing reluctance to roll out products...

We're unsure as to how things are going to play out in the long-run due to the recently announced AMD/ATI merger, but in the short term ATI still has a few products in the works for the Intel platform.  One such product, the upcoming RD600 chipset, is under the microscope at TweakTown. They've got some information regarding performance and overclockability, but testing was done on a reference board and there are no comparison numbers for reference. The writer also states that SLI has been officially enabled on the 975X Express chipset which isn't true - at least not yet. "That completes our initial first look at ATI's upcoming RD600 chipset from our top secret location in... Read more...
The Inquirer writes that ATi's upcoming Conroe chipset, codenamed RD600, will have no less than 3 PCIe 16X slots; 2 for CrossFire, 1 for Physics Acceleration. The RD600, tentatively named ATi Xpress 3200 Intel Edition, is obviously aimed at enthusiasts and is expected to debut later this year. It will sport a 1333Mhz front side bus, Dual Channel DDR2-1066 and automatic PCIe overclocking when certain ATi cards are detected. The word at the rumor mill is that it will be quite the overclocker too, thanks in part to a memory clock that is independent from the front side bus. "The RD600 chipset will support Conroe, Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs and it is expected in the next few... Read more...
HKEPC once again throws caution and NDA to the wind and have posted some preliminary details regarding ATI's next generation RD600 chipset. Based around Intel's upcoming Conroe processor, the chipset supports a 1333MHz FSB, dual-channel DDR2 1066, 48 PCI-E lanes, and have a whopping 3 PCI-E slots. The third slot is supposedly for a third GPU to act as a dedicated physics processor. How fast will that GPU have to be in order to perform on par or better than Ageia's PhysX discrete PPU? Per usual, time will tell and we'll reserve judgment until we have a board in the lab. Furthermore, it has 48 PCI-E Lanes and supports... Read more...
