ASUS is often considered one of the top manufacturers of motherboards, video cards, and other computer hardware. Along with a broad product line, the company has a strong reputation for making some of the highest-quality products available.  Furthermore, ASUS is one of the few companies that offers both NVIDIA- and ATI-based graphics cards, giving the enthusiast the broadest selection to choose from. Today, we're going to look at the ASUS V9999 Gamer Edition, the latest offering based on the GeForce 6800 GPU.  With 12 pixel pipelines, increased clock speeds, and an elegant cooling solution, the V9999 stands out from the crowd.  ASUS went over the top with the V9999 Gamer Edition,...

Never before has there been such a level playing field when it comes to higher-end graphics cards.  This year, both ATI and NVIDIA have pulled out all the stops, offering the most powerful gaming solutions ever.  While we could split hairs with frame rate measurements, in the end, both companies have cards to play anything available today and probably for some time as well, with the ability to render in excellent image quality that is virtually indistinguishable from the other.  When it comes to marketing these newer cards, however, it takes some more creativity to make one stand out over the other.  Since performance and image quality have reached a relative degree of parity,...

Hardcore gamers, with the large disposable incomes necessary to feed their hardware addictions, have a lot to be thankful for at the moment.  Both NVIDIA, with the GeForce 6 Series of products, and ATi, with their X800 Pro and X800 XT, have extremely powerful GPUs in their arsenals that are an order of magnitude faster than the previous generation.  And while the previous battle at the high-end between the GeForce FX 5950 Ultra and Radeon 9800 XT was heated, it was never quite as competitive as things are today.  The 9800 XT was almost universally lauded as the "better" choice, but now the choice isn't quite as clear.  Compelling arguments can be made for choosing...

Back in May '04, NVIDIA introduced the GeForce 6800 Ultra Extreme Edition to counter the launch of ATi's Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition, and gamers the world over took notice.  Just a few weeks earlier, the GeForce 6800 Ultra was unveiled, and at the time it was smoking through benchmarks like nobody's business.  Then, about a month later NVIDIA announces this new card and it's got a 16-Pipe NV40 core running a full 50MHz faster than the "stock" 6800 Ultra.  On top of that, it was said that some AIC partners may even ship cards with faster memory as well, offering even higher performance.  Today, we'll be taking a look at just such a card. The eVGA GeForce 6800... Read more...
Good afternoon everyone :)  After a demanding day at work, the women friend has decided that we should go out for dinner and a movie.  I think a few glasses of wine, some tasty Italian food and a good action flick should calm the nerves.  But, before we leave *smacks lips*, I think I am in the mood for a piping hot appetizer of juice? Mmmmm.... warm juice..... ;) Thermaltake Extreme Spirit @ HardwareHounds.com "Just when you think you have your system running at peak efficiency, something comes along that makes you rethink the way everything runs.

The Sapphire Ultimate Edition Atlantis 9800 Pro & The Sapphire Ultimate Edition Atlantis 9600 Pro A Couple of Passively Cooled, Wild Looking Radeons! By - Marco Chiappetta July 25, 2003 ATi's Radeon 9800 Pro and 9600 Pro GPUs are two of the most popular 3D chipsets on the market today.  A multitude of OEMs build boards based on these two chipsets and most of them strictly adhere to ATi's reference designs, for the PCB and cooling system.  It has gotten to the point that if you line up cards sold by a few top manufactures side-by-side, it would be almost impossible to them apart.  Well, all that is about to change!  Today, Sapphire Technologies unveils two new products...
