Hey folks, we have a few video card reviews for you tonight. In addition to the ones listed below, make sure to check out Robert's review of the MSI GeForce NX6800GT-T2D256E. Goodnight! HIS X850XT IceQII Platinum Edition and X850XT IceQII Turbo AGP @ Rage3D "Both the X850XT-PE and X850XT come with respectable bundles. The only difference between the bundles are the X850XT comes with a CD that contains HIS' iTurbo utility and a DVD containing bonus software and games. The X850XT-PE doesn't need the iTurbo software so that's not included, but for some reason it also doesn't include the bonus DVD. It does however include a PowerDVD 6 CD."

Good afternoon folks, today is Super Bowl Sunday!

MSI NX6600-VTD128E Diamond @ HEXUS.net "The real jewel in the crown for this board, assuming it is indicative of these boards as a whole, is overclockability. If the price is right, then this part could become something of a darling for those looking for a bargain in the mid-range video card sector - A board cheaper... Read more...
We've got an interesting line-up for you this AM.  First, an entry level 6200 that should appeal to those on a budget, while Altec Lansing and ECS deliver some treats of their own.  Check it! Today Beyond3D takes a look at NVIDIA's NV43 based (non-TurboCache) GeForce 6200: "Although the NV43 chip has 8 internal fragment (Pixel Shader) pipelines, the GeForce 6200 is designed to be an entry level part and as such as a reduced number of pipelines, down to 4. It would seem apparent that the 6200 configuration is primarily based on fall-out parts that don't operate in NV43's full 6600 configuration." Overclockers Online has posted its review of Altec Lansing MX-5021: "I've... Read more...
Tonight's news post is gonna be a little longer than normal since I'm doing my game news post, and want to get a bit of tech news in along with it. One interesting article is how the Washington Post claims the Gamecube is "Obsolete"... I personally hate seeing comments like that. Maybe it's because the cube is the only console system I have, and the only one I want. Does that make me biased? Probably. But to those of us who are fans of games that only Nintendo can deliver, the system is still very much alive. Ubisoft announces availability of Prince of Persia: Warrior Within "The Prince has matured immeasurably since his courageous fight in Prince of Persia The Sands of Time™.... Read more...

ECS PF1 Deluxe Photon Motherboard review @ Tweaktown: "We are taking a little flash-back today as we look at the year old ECS PF1 Deluxe Photon Motherboard. We've seen attempts in the past from ECS to make it big in leagues besides OEM and watched them fail. How does the this ECS Springdale motherboard fair against some of the biggest names in the enthusiast motherboard business?... Read more...
ECS P4IBAD versus Transcend TS-ABR4 Budget i845s Do Battle! By, Marco Chiappetta March  28, 2002 When the Pentium 4 was initially introduced, the only motherboards available were based on the Intel i850 chipset, which required the use of relatively expensive (at the time) RDRAM.  While the performance of an i850 / Pentium 4 combo was excellent, the price was prohibitive and kept Intel's new CPU out of the hands of many users.  Intel took too long to ready an alternate chipset that used less expensive memory types, which opened the door for companies like SiS and VIA to snatch up some of the Pentium 4 chipset market.  A Pentium 4 coupled with a SiS 645 or VIA P4X266A and some...

The ECS P4VXAD -Vs.- The Azza P4X2-AV Battle of the VIA P4X266s! By, Marco Chiappetta November 29, 2001 Intel and VIA are entangled in a nasty legal battle, and because of this, VIA's P4X266 Pentium 4 chipset has been surrounded by much controversy.  Intel is trying to stop the distribution of the P4X266 because they claim VIA is not licensed to use some of their technology, while VIA alleges all of the licenses they need to manufacture this chipset were obtained when they purchased S3.  All of the legal matters surrounding VIA's chipset have prevented some manufacturers from embracing the P4X266.  Dave took a look at a P4X266 board from Shuttle a few weeks back, but other than...

The ECS D6VAA Dual-CPU VIA Powered Motherboard Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun... By, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta July 26, 2001 Dual-CPU systems, previously reserved for use as high-end servers, have now become affordable due to the efforts of companies like ECS, Abit, Intel and Via (among others).  With the increased popularity of Windows 2000 and relatively "low" prices of SMP capable CPUs like the Pentium III, running a Dual-CPU rig on you desktop is now a viable option to the true hardware enthusiast or discerning power user. There is a common misconception when it comes to SMP (Symmetrical Multi-Processing) systems though.  I have been in many situations... Read more...
The Elitegroup P6BXT-A+ It's two boards in one!   The poeple at ECS really decided to do something different this time. They put their Marketing Hats on and decided to bring the Reseller/Custom Configurers and the End User community a board with a great deal of flexibility! They let go of conventional design practices and really thought "out of the box" with this board! Take a look at the picture below. You aren't seeing things. This board has both a Socket370 and a Slot 1 on it! Now, instead of being limited to only one or the other of the two most recent Intel CPU interfaces, you can choose which version best fits your budget/performance curve. Here's the rest of the details.... Read more...
