"There is a new chip on the card that NVIDIA developed that acts as a physical PCI Express bus splitter. It takes the single physical X16 PCIe slot that is fed to the card and splits it into two full X16 PCIe connections; one to each GPU. This logic is then responsible for the... Read more...

If we took a moment to reflect on some of the biggest technological advancements in recent history, SLI has to be on the short list.  Thanks in part to the increased bandwidth of PCI Express, NVIDIA paved the way for running two matching PCI Express based video cards concurrently, resulting in what we know today as SLI.  As with virtually any technology, there are positives and negatives to SLI.  First, the cards used must be the same and designed specifically to support SLI.  Second, the power requirements of today's NVIDIA graphics cards will require many to add a new PSU to their upgrading budget, in many cases.  However, these added considerations can yield some impressive...

Evercool H.D.D Air Condition @ Overclockersonline.com: "The Evercool HDAC is a very straight forward hard drive cooler that mounts in an open 5.25" drive bay. The aluminum body is solid and does a good job drawing heat out of the hard drive and the turbine fan performs very well and nearly silent at lower RPMs. In a tightly packed case or one with no front fans, this hard drive cooler can really help keep the hard drive with all your precious data nice and cool. This will extend the life of the drive and help prevent an early failure." Broadband Security part deux: So, how DO I get secure? @ OCModshop: "The first thing you need to do is log into your router.

Sunbeamtech Theta TP-101 Fan Controller @ Bigbruin.com: "Sunbeamtech has offered the typical fan controller (rheobus) in a variety of styles in the past, but the software based Theta TP-101 is much different.

Goodnight! nVidia GeForce 7800 GT Comparison @ GamePC Labs "Today at GamePC, we've compared two new GeForce 7800 GT cards which hit the market last week. From Asus, we have the Extreme N7800 GT card, and from eVGA, we have their e-GeForce 7800 GT. Both cards run off an nVidia reference design, but differ in terms of clock speeds, bundled hardware, and appearance.

VisionTek XTASY Theater 550Pro @ [H]ard|OCP: "What really makes this chip unique is that it has a 12-bit video decoder. Most add-in-card solutions only offer a 10-bit video decode solution. The Theater 550 Pro itself can perform 60 billion operations per second meaning smooth video frame rates employing image quality features to clear up the image. Part of the 12-bit decoder is a high quality 2D comb filter that exceeds other filters by offering 5 lines instead of 3. The 2D comb filter is beneficial when your input source is of composite material such as a standard TV broadcast through the RCA (Yellow) connection. This higher quality filter on the Theater 550 Pro allows for more detail and... Read more...

           Today we're going to take a look at three enthusiast class motherboards based on the NVIDIA nForce 4 Ultra chipset, the Abit Fatal1ty AN8, the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum, and the ECS KN1 Extreme. All three of these motherboards take the core features inherent to the NVIDIA nForce 4 Ultra, and implement them in their own unique ways. One board is flashy and boastful, another is subdued and loaded up with third-party on-board peripherals, while the other is rather spartan and quite inexpensive. But in the end, they are all subject to our discerning eyes and the same suite of benchmarks. We took all three of these motherboards for a spin, and... Read more...
