It's been a while since we looked at AGEIA's PPU, and things have slowly started looking better and better for PhysX as time rolled on.  Perhaps the largest boon to the whole PPU concept thus far might be Epic's support for AGEIA's APEX (Adaptive Physics EXtensions) in their Unreal Tournament 3 Engine, which will likely end up at the heart of many upcoming titles.It seems that APEX powered UT3 levels, originally slated to see the light of day in early 2008, are coming home for the holidays!“To showcase the power of the PhysX UT3 Mod-Kit and the PhysX processor, AGEIA Technologies is rolling out a series of Extreme PhysX Mod Levels for UT3 available as a free download starting today.

The Revolution is over. Today Nintendo has announced that the console formerly known as "Revolution", shall officially be called "Wii"(pronounced "we"). "While the code-name "Revolution" expressed our direction, Wii represents the answer. Wii will break down that wall that separates video game players from everybody else. Wii will put people more in touch with their games... and each other. But you're probably asking: What does the name mean?" I liked Revolution. It was a good name, and went well with what the console aimed for in terms of gameplay and diverse consumer user appeal. Wii though? It just doesn't seem right.... Read more...
Well, not officially, but the latest rumor has the system's CPU clocked at 729MHz, and the GPU at 243MHz(Compared to the Gamecube's 485/162). Nintendo has repeatedly stated that they have no intention of waging any sort of hardware war with Sony or Microsoft. "So, in terms of raw next-gen horsepower Revolution clearly can't compare with the Xbox 360's three symmetrical cores running at 3.2GHz or the PS3's Cell chip. But then again, Nintendo has repeatedly stressed that they aren't looking to compete with the tech heavies at MS and Sony. The result will likely be a system that pumps out near Xbox quality visuals but offers a very unique input... Read more...
IGN has apparently received some final specifications for Nintendo's upcoming Revolution gaming console. Surprisingly, the Revolution's "Broadway" CPU will be clocked at an underwhelming 729MHz and the "Hollywood" GPU will be clocked at 243MHz. Compared with previous generation consoles, the Revolution fares extremely well. However, in the midst of Xbox 360 and PS3 the Revolution seems to be too conservative to be any threat at all for hardcore (adult) gamers and appears to be more like a GameCube 2. Looking at the small footprint and size of the case, it's no wonder we have low clock speeds as heat is surely an issue. Insiders... Read more...

Version 3.1 of Silverstone's SG-01 Evolution SFF case is a great pick if you're looking to build a small, portable PC. Good ventilation, and the ability to use any standard size ATX PSU are just some of the features you'll find. "One of the first things that grab your attention is the simple but yet, elegant design of the SG-01, from the stylish Silverstone logo to the well placed silver/chrome accents around the two 5.25" drive bays and the background behind the front access ports. Speaking of which in addition to the customary audio ports, the IEEE 1394 port and two USB 2.0 ports that have become standard on just about every case manufactured... Read more...
The console enthusiast website GAF has posted some very interesting images of Nintendo's upcoming Revolution gaming console. Supposedly taken from a recruiting kit which was scheduled to be used after the Revolution console launches, the images show the progression of the hardware from conceptual design to the final appearance. As a bonus, there are also a number of images showing various aspects of game development in their early stages. I must say whatever designers Nintendo has now - from GB Micro, to the 20th Anniversary ads, to DS Lite and Revolution - they're certainly good. Managing to mix Apple style cool, with retro cool at the same... Read more...

Hey folks, I'm here to drop some news off before I hit the sack. Coming straight from HH, Marco has reviewed EVGA's e-GeForce 7800 GTX EGS, check below for more information. Goodnight all :) EVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX EGS "The e-GeForce 7800 GTX we'll be showcasing today is one of three 7800 based products EVGA currently has in their line-up, but we know a fourth model with a custom cooling solution should be available in the not-too-distant future as well. The e-GeForce 7800 GTX we have here, part number 256-P2-N528-AX, is essentially a duplicate of NVIDIA's reference design, with slightly different default core and memory clock speeds and a custom decal on the fan shroud."

The M-Audio Revolution 7.1 Viva la revolución! "Burned in" by Robert Maloney June 23rd, 2003 The history of the audio card industry can be summed up by saying there has always been Creative Lab's SoundBlaster line, and then there have been the "others".  When Aureal disappeared from the picture in 2000, it seemed to spell the end of any true competition for the audio giant.  Other companies just couldn't risk going up against Creative's "beat 'em or buy 'em" strategy.  On one hand, that might not have really been too much of a bad thing.  I mean, after all, many games or applications were designed on and for SoundBlaster cards.  In fact,...
