Kingston just sent over a bit of information about some new SO-DIMMs they're about to release for high-performance notebooks.  Check out this snip from the official press release, and then head on over to their site for the full scoop. Kingston Launches 667-MHz DDR2 SO-DIMM Memory; Ready to Support Future High-Performance Notebook Market High-performance modules hit market ahead of notebook, mobile systems able to utilize new technology. Fountain Valley, CA (October 11, 2005), Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of ValueRAM DDR2 667-MHz (PC2-6400) memory modules to support next generation notebook and mobile systems....

  Last month we took a look at two recent sets of memory from Corsair and Kingston that were pushing DDR2 technology ahead, offering higher clock speeds and lower latencies to complement leading edge motherboard technologies.  Each set did very well in our benchmarks, offering up premium peformance with solid stability. But, besides death and taxes, the only other constant in this world is that the speed of most PC components increase every six months or so.  While Kingston was the first to reach the 750MHz barrier with their HyperX KHX6000D2K2/1G memory, we now have faster sets on the market, including today's entry from OCZ Technology, a 1GB set of 800MHz rated DDR2 called the...

I came across some great new pictures of Nintendo's Revolution controller today(thanks blue!). The Wavebird adapter is not surprising as the system supports Gamecube titles. There's still plenty of criticism about the new controller, and Nintendo needs to show it off a little more, possibly with demos of current favorites such as Metroid or Zelda. Anyway, enjoy the news folks, goodnight! OCZ PC2 4200 Gold Edition (2x 1Gb) 3-3-3-8 @ Club Overclocker "For the past year I've always recommended 1gb of good DDR or DDR2. No more, no less. That was until I started playing new games like Doom 3, Half Life 2, and now Battlefield 2. While Doom 3 was more graphics card intensive, it also needed a ton... Read more...

Frontier Labs, a name not familiar to the majority of us, has introduced... Read more...
Kingston HyperX DDR2 750MHz (KHX6000D2K2/1G) @ Bjorn3D: "Kingston's high-end system memory products are given the HyperX brand. Of course, Kingston offers HyperX products featuring the latest memory technology, DDR2. DDR2 is supported on most of the recently released chipsets and will eventually supplant first generation DDR as the dominant memory type in the PC industry. It is an evolution of the DDR specification that features lower power consumption, higher speeds and better thermal performance." Great, But Why Intel? @ The TechZone: "For this lifelong Macintosh fanatic, the urge to react to the news that Apple would be making the switch to Intel processors over the course of... Read more...

The V500 is a wireless notebook mouse with comparatively better ergonomics, thanks in part to its grooves. The precision is all well and good for what its designed for – basic tasks. If you are planning on purchasing the V500, you wouldn't necessary be delighted with its performance... Read more...
It's AMD, it's dual-core, and it's cheap... well, cheaper anyway. That's right, the new Athlon 64 X2 3800 reviews are out and about, and here at HH Marco has taken this thing through a battery of tests. Also new in the AMD lineup, is the 3400 Sempron. Jeff takes a look at the newest member of the Sempron family to see if it can hold it's own against today's latest and greatest applications and games. AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 "AMD's dual-core processors were undeniably desirable, but with a minimum cost higher than some complete entry-level PCs, justifying the purchase of one of these processors would be difficult for many enthusiasts. Today though, AMD is taking the wraps off of a brand new... Read more...
              When we last took a look at some DDR2 memory back in October of 2004, the technology was still a bit new and didn't seem to offer any tangible performance benefits over standard DDR RAM.  Higher speeds could be obtained with DDR2 though, and these modules required less voltage, thus lowering overall power consumption.  The caveat with DDR2, however, was that early sets were much higher priced per MB than older DDR memory, and latencies were generally much higher, which kept performance on par if not slightly off the existing model.  The Intel camp was left without any options, as the 925 series of chipsets...

Not surprisingly, the company has introduced a latest line of sleek MP3 players based on flash memory for portability and ruggedness. As you can already tell, the exterior of the player is like no other with a small, glossy finish for an attractive look. According to Sony, it's about the size of a gum, which makes it pretty small." OCZ EL PC-3500 Gold GX and PC-4800... Read more...
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.

Hey folks, I just got back from the new Batman movie and I was fairly impressed. Not nearly as cartoonish as the previous ones, and it gets back to what I love most about Batman... no special powers, no back-up forces, just some crazy rich guy in a cape with a cool car. That's a real super hero! Anyway, here's the news: Desktop DDR3 Modules Ready for Retail in 12 Months @ CoolTechZone "Manufacturers are finally being optimistic about DDR2 sales, and DDR2 has been through various speed steps to actually be a worthwhile standard with Intel platform with 1066MHz system bus. Although the market appears to be optimistic, DDR2 sales aren't nearly anywhere close to what manufacturers might expect... Read more...
BlueTake BT400 G5 Bluetooth Headset Review @ The Tech Zone: "Nothing says geek like a Bluetooth headset. With the BT400 G5, you'll be able to laugh at people with corded headset because they're not as cool as you. With a simple flip and a twist, the BT400 G5 works for both left or right ear. How geeky is that?" DFI LanParty UT SLI-DR Review @ Ninjalane: "When SLI was first announced the enthusiasm here in the Ninjalane Labs for the new technology was crazy.

Good morning everyone, how are we all doing this morning?  Myself, I am not to shabby; just hiding out in my office for the day.  I am not a big fan of this whole "spring showers" thing that Mother Nature keeps trying to pull on us every year.  Who really needs real flowers when you can just plant silk ones in your garden? ;) Here is your news...  The Uncertain State of DDR @ CoolTechZone "After we got back from CES this year, we reported back on the industry's speculation of DDR and where it's heading in the near future. It's pretty apparent that DDR isn't going to budge until after two years, if not more. Aside that, almost all memory makers had the same answers... 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...
