Hey folks, today I came across a nice game performance preview. Some of you already know what I'm talking about... F.E.A.R. FiringSquad has had a chance to take a look F.E.A.R. using 7800GTX(SLI), 6800Ultra(SLI), 6800GT, X850 XT PE, and a X800 XL. Think the 7800GTX in SLI can handle it no problem? Well, you might want to see for yourself, but keep in mind the game is still in BETA form. SunbeamTech 20 in 1 MultiFunction Panel and Anodized Fans @ PimpRig "Like a kid on Christmas, I couldn't decide which one to open first so I went with the biggest box first, the 20-In-1 Superior Panel. Once I opened this sturdy box, I felt intimidated by what I saw. After all, the last time I hooked up a... Read more...
Hey folks, just thought I'd drop off some news before I head off to bed. Good night! Neoseeker Athlon 64 3800 Venice @ Neoseeker | Marco's review of the 3800+ Venice Core "Today at Neoseeker we take a look at an Athlon 64 3800 based on AMD's Venice core revision which features an updated memory controller as well as SSE3 support. Memory tests yielded some interesting results - they are not strictly improvements from the performance stand point per se." MSI P4N Diamond (nForce4 SLI Intel Edition) @ Hardware Zone "It isn't everyday we come across a board that impresses us like the MSI P4N Diamond did, but full-fledged performance and an almost perfect feature set was the winning...

Hey folks, how about this weather? Those in the northeast know what I mean... it hasn't be in the high 50's since what, September, October? Anyway, we've got some good items today, including new Hard Drive tech from Seagate and Intel, and a Athlon 64 3500+ overclocking adventure with PCstats. Also, April is almost here, so don't forget that HH will be at the Nor'Easter LAN on April 16-17. AMD Athlon64 3500+ Overclocking Adventure @ PCstats "We're going to have a bit of fun with this chip today. We'll test how high our Athlon64 3500+ will overclock with air cooling, but we're also going to put the processor under the deep freeze to see how high it goes with a R404A modded Prometeia Mach I...

Hey folks, what's up? If this is your first visit to HH of the day, Dave has taken a look at the HIS Radeon X850 XT and Radeon X800 XL - IceQ II Turbo. And yes, with a cooler that spiffy, there had to be some overclocking ;) Oh, and for you X-Box owners who are still interested in the cable replacement fiasco, you might want to check this out. Adios. Thermaltake Hardcano13 Multi-Function Panel @ SystemCooling "Multifunction panels have become more popular and more complicated as of lately. Rather than only controlling the speed of your fans, newer panels now incorporate LCD displays and card readers into them. Today we'll be taking a look at Thermaltake's latest entry into the multifunction... Read more...
Good morning and happy Friday to you.  The hardware news front is a little quiet today, but we pulled together a few items worth the read.  Check out two flavors of Mushkin RAM, then wrap it up with a new monitor from Creative that is worthy of your attention.   Mushkin PC2-4200 DDR2 Low Latency Kit @ Viper Lair: "We were quite pleased with Mushkin's PC2-4200 3-2-2-8 as it performed reliably and was quick as well. We did hit some hurdles in overclocking past DDR2-667, but in that case you would be better served by their PC2-5300 kit. Other than that, Mushkin doesn't package the bling such as flashing LEDs, but in turn their ram modules are easier on the wallet." Mushkin... Read more...
Good morning all.  Time for your morning news to start your day off right.  The Mushkin 1GB PC2-4200 looks like a sweet set of RAM and if you're a Wi-Fi user, the Tech Zone has some useful security tips.  Let's get things rolling! Wi-Fi Hotspot Security Tips @ The Tech Zone: "You've set up your Boingo account, you're hanging out at the Home Turf sports bar in LAX and you figure you'll do a little business or check your e-mail while sipping a Chardonnay. Well, that's the point of Wi-Fi hotspots; being able to take care of a few things while in a relaxing atmosphere. Don't, however, get so relaxed that you ignore security and give all your confidential information to some unscrupulous... Read more...
Good morning everyone.  I'm starting off the day a bit envious after reading Marco's Mobility Radeon X700 review. Granted, my Centrino 1.4GHz with Mobility 9200 has served me well over the last few years, but an X700 would be a sweet update.  If you haven't checked it, you should.  Then be sure to check the latest news bits we have in store this morning. Logitech MX 3100 Cordless Desktop @ hardcoreware.net: "When Logitech introduced the laser-based MX 1000 as a replacement for the MX 700, it was only a matter of time before they came out with a matching wireless keyboard. That keyboard is known as the MX 3000 on its own, and in a month or so it will be released along side... Read more...
When DDR2 first saw the light of day, the memory marked the next level in DDR technology.  However, with improved frequencies, lower voltage requirements and improve packaging also came higher latencies.  With intial offerings coming in at CAS 4-4-4-12 and even higher, the performance improvements over DDR1 were minimal at best.  There was also a significant price increase over DDR1 that became a stumbling block for DDR2 as it really didn't make sense to pay more for the same relative performance.  Today, the DDR2 sector has evolved into the next phase of lower latency offerings.  As expected, we are seeing latency improve, making the case for upgrading to DDR2 a bit...

Hello and welcome to the evening portion of our news program ;) I just finished stuffing myself with everything the freezer had to offer. Oh, how I wish typing would reduce more calories. Alright, I need to get case modding, so without further ado, here's your headlines... CORSAIR TWIN2X1024-4300C3 DDR-2 MEMORY REVIEW @ PCStats "In it, PCSTATS is testing out two brand new 512MB sticks of Corsair Twin2X1024-4300C3 DDR2 memory. Corsair is consistently a market leader in the memory field, and they were among the first to announce performance grade DDR-2 RAM for enthusiasts. Talk about being on the ball."

Good afternoon HotHardware fans! Our man Jeff just finished up a review of some top notch DDR2 memory from PQI. Their PQI24200-1GDB DDR2 Turbo Memory Kit held its own against some of Corsair's best, and it ran at even lower latencies than it was rated for. Click here and check it out...... Read more...
Competition can be a blessing for consumers, a headache for manufacturers and a driving force for an entire industry.  Where a market once may have been dominated by one or two big companies with a handful of smaller competitors striving for their piece of the pie, nowadays the scales are somewhat more balanced.  A good example of this is with the CD/DVD-ROM market, where a few big names like Plextor and Pioneer set the standard for years.  Today, there are many equally good offerings from lesser-known names at lower prices.  No longer is it necessary to pay a little extra for name recognition when there are quality alternatives for an economical price. We've seen a similar... Read more...
Good evening ladies and gentlemen. On our menu today, we have early benchmarks from the Radeon 850 XT-PE. I'm not 100% sure if these are legit, but they probably are. Also, we have reviews on Crucial Ballistix PC5300 DDR2 Memory, Zalman CNPS7700-AlCu Ultra Silent CPU Cooler, and a couple of other items. Oh and there's going to be a couple of changes to the way we post the news, one of them is fewer articles in each post, but more posts each day. We are also going to be posting various tech news, not just hardware reviews, so if you have something interesting, by all means use the 'Submit News' link and let us know what you've found! Zalman CNPS7700-AlCu Ultra Silent CPU Cooler @ A True Review... Read more...
I just got home and let me tell you... it's hard trying to teach someone, who thinks AOL is the Internet, to actively protect themselves against spyware ;) It's almost as fun as explaining that pop-ups that say "You have a virus, Click Here!!!!1!", might not be telling the truth! Enough of that, it's news time... ATI X800 Pro Video Card Review @ CoolTechZone "NVIDIA is back in the market with full force and ATI is slowly taking the back seat in few of its product lines, namely it's mid-end graphics card lines. We have evaluated NVIDIA's 6800 graphics cards previously and have been quite impressed with the overall performance. This time, however, we have changed tracks and will... Read more...
Good evening everyone, how was the work day?  Nothing to exciting happened at my end of the world this afternoon.  I did however place an order for some new hardware from FrozenCPU at lunch time.  The bad thing is that it got me thinking about setting up a new liquid cooling system... If anyone has any suggestions for a good setup for an AMD64 system, drop me a line.... Here is your news...  EE Times Article: Polymer electronics yet to realize promise "Polymer electronics' low carrier mobility limits the switching frequency of printed transistors to a few hundred kilohertz.

Finally, it's over. The Red Sox made history last night with their amazing march to, and through, the World Series. After sending the Yankees back home with a 4 game come back, they just kept on winning, shutting out the Cardinals in 4 games. I'm not a big baseball fan, but you have to respect that. These guys dug deep and did the unthinkable, over and over and over. There is some good Mojo hanging over Massachusetts lately, now it's the Patriots turn to keep the winning streak alive. Enough sports talk from me, here is your news for this AM! Raidmax Samurai ATX Gaming Case Review @ BigBruin.Com: "In essence what Raidmax did was to take a plain square case and screw plastic panels and shells... Read more...
Good Evening HotHardware fans! Just in case you've missed the link at the top of the page, I wanted to let you all know that we've just posted a shoot-out between two 1GB DDR2-675 capable memory kits, Corsair's TWIN2X1024-5400C4PRO and Kingston's KHX5400D2K2/1G. We ran some tests at stock settings, with more aggressive 3-3-3-10 timings, and at their highest stable overclocked speeds. Click here and see which kit came out on top...... Read more...
              With the launch of their 900 series chipsets, and LGA775 based Pentium 4 processors, Intel introduced the use of DDR2 system memory on the desktop.  DDR1 system memory had been the standard for quite a few years, and DDR2 memory had been used on the occasional video card at that point, but DDR2 system memory had yet to be implemented in a consumer level desktop computer.  DDR1 and DDR2 memory are fundamentally very similar.  In essence, DDR2 memory is simply a refinement of the original, however, there are some differences that set them apart.  For example, DDR2 memory requires much less voltage...

Good evening brothers and sisters, welcome back :)  The day is coming to a close and the HH news-bin is busting at the seams.  However, before I jump over to the news front, I want to point out that Jeff recently posted his review of S3's OmniChrome TV/Graphics Card, their competitor to ATi's All-In-Wonder and NVIDIA's Personal Cinema line of products.  Take a few minutes and check it out before you scroll down to the news... Corsair Announces 550 MHz CAS2.5 DDR Modules Fremont, CA, October 20, 2004: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global leader in ultra-performance DDR memory modules for PC gamers and enthusiasts, today announced their fastest ever DDR memory module, a DDR550 module that...

Happy Friday all!  Looks like a lot of people have been very busy in the hardware world this week. We've got a slew of news for you on a typically quiet Friday morning.  We're all working on some awesome hardware ourselves, so stay tuned.  I wonder how many of you feel real old after checking out Rob's retro Coleco piece.  I know I got a reality check when I can remember playing that pocket football game when I was a kid.  It was so cool at the time.  Ugghh...getting old :( September High-end Gaming PC Buyer's Guide @ Sharky Extreme: "Today on Sharky Extreme, we've posted our September High-end Gaming PC Buyer's Guide, where we take $2500 in search of high-end Intel...

Good evening friends, welcome back to HH :)  Thanks for bearing with me this morning, I made it to my meeting on time, but, not with much room to spare.  Nonetheless, taking a gander into my inbox-o-wonders, it looks like my fellow editors from around the net had quite the busy day themselves.  So, without further ado, here is your evening dose of juice...  Antec NeoPower 480 Review @ ClubOC "The box top of the Antec NeoPower 480, aside from the obvious Matrix overtones, clearly shows the power supply's greatest innovative feature. No, not the use of a single 120mm fan to provide cooling. How about the five connectors that allow you to pick and choose as many, or as few,... Read more...
Hello everyone, JeffB stopping in for your afternoon news fix.  Today has been an insanely busy day for me and it's only 12 noon!  Between friends having computer problems, intermittent connectivity, and of course, reviews of hardware, I'm really juggling today.  Hopefully I will get through the day unscathed and can get a normal routine back this weekend.  As far as news goes, things are hopping with the latest Chipset release from VIA.  Let's take a look... A number of sites, including HotHardware, have news on the VIA K8T890 Pro.  Here's the rundown so far: VIA K8T890 - PCI Express For The Athlon 64 @ HotHardware.com HEXUS.net Feature: VIA's PCI Express plans...

Good evening friends, NJ stopping in with another dose of HH's special brand of juice.  On tap tonight we have a variety of flavours that should suit just about everyone's taste.  So, go grab a mug and pull up a stool, I am starting to server...  DDR vs. DDR2 @ Legion Hardware "After recently reviewing the Gigabyte 8GPNXP motherboard, I received a whole heap of e-mails regarding the boards dual memory support. It would seem that a lot of people are unsure about the differences between the original DDR memory and the new DDR2 memory type. Most of the questions were "Which memory type is faster?", "Can both DDR and DDR2 be used at the same time?" and of course... Read more...
