  It's no secret that Intel has occassionally been playing a bit of catchup this year in the desktop and workstation processor arena.  AMD's Athlon 64 releases have recently positioned the company in the lead from a general performance standpoint.  Additionally, the Athlon 64 was the first processor to market with 64-bit extensions and processing capabilities, although there really hasn't been much if any impact in consumer or business usage models for the new architecture because there are scarce few 64-bit applications available, much less a mainstream 64-bit OS.  Of course that's something Intel will be quick to point out as an "I told you so," but you've...

Hey folks, it's that time again. Using my computer earlier today, I noticed it acting a little funny. The first thing I suspected was a virus, and as I usually do when this happens, I went to find the Avast! Anti-Virus setup file. I decided to check for a new version on their web site, and while checking out the site, I noticed the home edition is now a free offering. Drago, a forum member, had informed me awhile ago, but I'd forgotten until now. If your looking for a good, free, virus scanner, I suggest you give it a try. Anyway, here's the news, and a Press Announcement from Corsair. Corsair Introduces COOL Water Cooling Kit Fremont, California, January 27, 2005: Corsair Memory, Inc., a global... Read more...

Good Afternoon All! BW here taking some time out from trick-or-treating to let you all know that we've just posted a review of Intel's latest flagship processor, the 3.46GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, and the new i925XE chipset with official support for a 1066MHz front side bus.

  The folks out in Sunnyvale have been releasing new additions to their Athlon 64 processor lineup with the kind of fevered pace we've come to expect from major-league semiconductor manufacturers.  So too has the ever-dominant Intel.  With 78,000 employees worldwide and almost 10 times the revenue of its nearest competitor at $30 billion annually, its this kind of critical mass that allows a company to pour endless resources into a program and drive higher reaching product line goals. Earlier this month, we brought you a view of AMD's new Athlon FX-55 and Athlon 64 4000+ processors and their relative performance versus Intel's flagship CPUs.  Today we've got Intel's latest...

Good morning all!  Man, last night was a tense evening around the HH labs.  With the Yankees "blowing it" and the Red Sox making history, emotions were high.  Needless to say, Yankees fans are pretty cranky and Davo, our lone Sox fan, (correction Jeff, Tom is one too!) is laughing all the way home.  It was fun to watch, even for a non-fan like myself, but after the Sox put up 8 runs, I knew it was time to call it a night.  Oh well, at least NY still has two football teams doing really good right now. Heck, the Jets are undefeated! Who would've guessed that one?!?!  (want to put some money on the Pats/Jets game this weekend? ;) ) Anyhow, here is your news... Read more...
Good evening folks!  Just in case you're the type who scrolls down right to the news, we want to let you know that we've just posted a new article comparing two affordably priced PCI Express graphics cards, the Asus Extreme AX600XT and the MSI GeForce PCX 5750. Click here to check it out......

  With much anticipation and fanfare, the next generation in video card interface has arrived.  PCI Express, the successor to AGP, is now available on a number of Intel-based boards starting with the 900 series chipset.  VIA, SiS, and others are sure to follow in the coming months. It's still uncertain when the other OEM solutions will come out with PCI-E (not to be confused with PCI-X), but regardless of potential delays, PCI-E will be universal sooner than later. The potential benefits of PCI-E over AGP are dramatic, offering peak bandwidth of 4GBps (8GB concurrent), which more than doubles that of AGP 8X.  Initially, PCI-E appeared on the high-end of the scale with...

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...
