Over the last six weeks, three new chipsets for the AMD processor platform have been announced that all have one very important feature in common.  NVIDIA's nForce 4, VIA's K8T890, and ATi's RADEON XPRESS 200 all have support for the emerging PCI Express standard.  PCI Express, which was first brought to market with Intel's 900 series of chipsets back in June, is a serial point-to-point communications link for graphics and data, that offers much more bandwidth than AGP 8X and the aging parallel PCI bus.  For example, when compared to AGP 8X, which offers a peak bandwidth of 2.1GB/s, the new PCI Express X16 link used for graphics cards has almost four times the peak bandwidth, 8GB/s...

  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...

Good morning all! VIA is officially unveiling their latest chipset for the Athlon 64 / Opteron today, the K8T890.  The K8T890 sports all of the features of the popular K8T800 Pro, with the added benefits of PCI Express.  The "Pro" flavor of the K8T890 even offers dual PEG slots, for full support of dual PCI Express graphics cards.  We've got all of the main features outlined in our K8T890 spotlight.  Head on over and take a look.  ...

On August 12th, NVIDIA took the wraps off their new value-based PCI-Express video cards, introducing the GeForce 6600 and 6600 GT.  Back then we were given ample information in advance to do a thorough preview on what both cards brought to the game.  With a smaller die size, many of the same qualities of the 6800 series and even a few new features, like a native on chip PCIe core, NVIDIA's first GeForce 6 Series offerings into the mainstream PCI Express market seemed intriguing.   Up until now, NVIDIA's GeForce 6 Series PCI-Express solutions have been developed exclusively for their high-end cards, leaving the value class occuppied solely by ATI's X600 and various FX 5900s and...

With the release of both NVIDIA's 6800 Series and ATI's X800 series, the high-end enthusiast has several excellent choices when seeking the perfect gaming card.   It really is hard to go wrong either way, with each product line having the muscle to power any game you can throw at it, while offering the best image quality we've seen to date.  But the high-end market is only a small percentage of sales as these cards can cost in excess of $500.  When it comes to PCI Express based value solutions , ATI has their X600 series which sells in the $200 range, while NVIDIA has yet to launch many new value-based PCI Express offerings as of yet, electing to focus first on their high end products....

Recently ATi spent time with us going over their soon to be launched PCI Express based offering of 3D Graphics cards.  Although we're unable to share performance metrics with you today, due to the current NDA embargo status of Intel's forthcoming i925X, i915G and i915P chipsets (and ATi's coordination of availability for that launch), we can show you a bit about these new products, as well as the introductory model flavors that ATi will be bringing to market later this month. If you recall, back in March we covered both ATi and NVIDIA's approach to PCI Express technology.  ATi took the high road offering native integration of a custom built 16 lane PCI Express core in their VPU strategy....

Good morning everyone :)  I am going to have to cut the banter to a minimum this AM, things in my life have turned out to be a lot crazier then I had expected.  Nevertheless, here is some juice... Seagate Barracuda 160GB SATA HDD @ Bytesector "Seagate is the lesser known of the three major companies vying for supremacy in the consumer hard drive market. Today, I will take a look at their latest technological offering, a Serial ATA hard drive. The Seagate series has retained the branding name of Barracuda throughout the past several years and it is now being used on their SATA series of hard drives. These drives sport a 7200RPM spindle, a nicely sized 8MB cache, 8.5 ms average seek... Read more...
Good evening friends :)  I am packing it in early tonight; this cold is hitting my head pretty hard.  However, before I go pound back a bottle of Robitussin I have a shot of juice for you :) PCI Express Feature @ Neoseeker "We take a look at PCI Express today at Neoseeker and ponder what it brings to the table. As much as everyone in the PC world loves backward compatibility, PCI Express is going to quash that notion introducing both a new physical and underlying interface ushering out the now ubiquitous AGP slot. The classic PCI interface will also be nudged out albeit more slowly. The transition from AGP to PCI Express has a profound impact for the gaming segment especially as... Read more...
The Advent of PCI Express ATI and NVIDIA Discuss Their Plans By: Chris Angelini March 23, 2004 There was once a time when running an intensive 3D game at a resolution of 1600x1200 was wishful thinking.  Frame rates were laughable, at best.  And what about Anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering? No can do. Believe it or not, that was a scant  three and a half years ago, when NVIDIA's GeForce2 Ultra roamed the earth devouring hapless RADEON and Voodoo5 cards, before swallowing the once dominant 3dfx whole.  Now where are we?  Blasting through the latest first-person shooters at that...
