With the advent of acrylic cases and case windows, visually what is on the inside has become just as important as what is on the outside.

Major product launches don't seem to be getting any easier these days, at least on our side of the fence here in the online media community.  Competition is fiercer than ever in all of the major functional blocks for personal computing, whether it's Graphics, Platform Chipsets, Drive technology or Processors.  It almost seems like major OEMs are driving too hard in an effort to trump the competition.  On the other hand, high tech, as we all know, is a very unforgiving battleground.  And so, it is with cramped weary fingers and bloodshot tired eyes, that we bring you this showcase of Intel's major platform launch centered around their new Alderwood and Grantsdale chipsets. ...

The HotHardware Vintage PC Collection! A Quick Trip Down Memory Lane... By, Marco Chiappetta April 2, 2003 We spend quite a bit of time working with cutting edge technology here on HotHardware.Com.  We've recently had our hands on 3.06GHz Pentium 4s, Radeon 9800 Pros, a slew of low-latency memory, the latest motherboards and even some of the fastest hard drives currently available.  We're definitely passionate about this stuff, and it's great to experience high-end PC hardware first hand...but it is still fun to stop for a moment and look back at some of the older products that helped bring us to where we are today.  Most of the H.H. crew have been around, or have worked with,...

Clearly, the RADEON 9700 will be the next leading performance graphics solution for the high end, at least for a while.  However, NVIDIA is not sitting idle, watching ATI capture market share.  The release of DirectX 9 is approaching and the finishing touches are being applied to NV30, NVIDIA?s successor to the GeForce4.  If you think of R300 as Germany?s Bismarck battleship, NV3X can be likened to Britain?s HMS Hood, sent to intercept and destroy the powerful adversary.  Of course, NVIDIA hopes the outcome of the confrontation...

Home Grown Networking and Modems from ActionTec Electronics https://www.actiontec.com   Not long ago, "Home Networking" was a segment of the PC and Peripheral Market that did not even exist. However along with the huge success of the Personal Computer and the Internet within the mainstream and "Family/SOHO" (Small Office/Home Office) space, came the Multi-PC Household. Soon, for today's average family, one PC was not enough. It was as if the "Great Telephone Line Battle" was raged again but this time on a different precious commodity, "Computer Time". Now instead of hogging the phone lines for voice calls, Teens are sucking up MHz. and bandwidth in the Chat Rooms and Web Pages of the Internet.... Read more...
