Good morning all. Did everyone have a nice weekend? I hope so. I spent most of my weekend building up and tinkering with a new test rig that'll get abused for an upcoming article. Can't tell you much about it just yet though! :)  I can tell you about the news though, which has been flowing in at a steady clip all weekend.  Check it out...  An Update on Crossfire Limitations @ PenStar Systems: "On a standard video card, like the Radeon X800 series, the chip itself has two internal RAMDACs running at 400 MHz (for higher end cards), as well as a TMDS that runs at 165 MHz which can power LCD's up to 1920x1200 @ 60 Hz using reduced blanking techniques. Higher end cards can utilize... Read more...
Today we learned about an error within our ATi CrossFire article that frankly was the result of some misinformation provided to us by ATi regarding AA image quality comparisons. Please check out our update here and draw your own conclusions.  We hope this update serves as a reminder to always take vendor-provided information with a grain of salt, as we've stated numerous times in this article and many times in the past in previous articles, especially launch "previews" where we do not have access to hardware for our own testing purposes. What fun for a Friday... Best Regards, Dave Altavilla Editor In Chief... Read more...

At this year's E3 show ATi was discretely showing their new multi-GPU rendering technology which until now has been held under wraps of the standard NDA embargos we've come to know and love here in the industry.  Last week we were given a full briefing on the technology by the ATi team and were told sometime in the month of June, product should be available in the retail channel.  However for now, we can give you full details on the features and underlying technology in ATi's new CrossFire products with this pre-launch showcase, which we will follow-up of course, with a full performance preview once we get product in our lab for hands-on testing.

Good evening my friends welcome back to HH.  Things around the Canadian portion of the labs have been fairly mundane over the past week or so, and for that, I would like to apologize.  I have been dealing with some fairly substantial situations in my personal life; but, things have been resolved and my life is back on track.  Consequently, as of tomorrow AM I will be back in full effect (forum, multiple news shots, reviewage, etc...).  Thanks to those who have helped me out over the past little while, you have been a great help... News anyone??  AC Ryan Blackfire4 Fans @ Phoronix "If you are tired of those old generic fans sitting inside your case, you should be... Read more...

BuffaloTech FireStix PC4000 1GB DDR @ GideonTech.com "BuffaloTech has long been in the OEM field and just recently slid into the performance market.

Good morning gang, JeffB stopping by with your morning news update.  While Marco is fighting off a bug, or possibly an overdose of pollen, I have a dilemma of a different kind.  I took a ride to Top Sail Island off the coast of NC yesterday and didn't bring the sunblock.  After walking along the beach for several hours without protection, I am now very well done.  Needless to say, there are no quick movements in my future nor any sun going to hit me for a few days.  I'm about as red as a tomatoe when I am usually pasty white.  Ouch!  Want to watch DVDs on your PC in 3D?  DDD Group PLC just released a WinDVD add-on component that turns any DVD into a 3D...

  The NVIDIA Quadro FX 2000 And The ATi FireGL X1 Professional Graphics Solutions Do Battle By: Dave Altavilla August 20, 2003     Professional Graphics Cards are sort of an oddity to us here at HotHardware.com.  Admittedly, we don't get to tinker enough in this area, since frankly the market that is served by these products is a specialty niche´, where there just isn't the same level of marketing buzz, as in the Consumer Graphics space.  Not too mention, the fact that if you want to fairly represent a product's performance and features, from our perspective, one needs to look at a number of different application scenarios.  The high end CAD and 3D design and rendering...

The Hercules Digifire 7.1 Sound Card 360o Of Sound Emersion By Jay Gibson December 11, 2002 Since our last look at a Hercules sound card, the Gamesound Fortissimo II, there have been a few advances in the technology that audiophiles will rejoice over.  As Hercules' flagship product, in their audio line-up, the Digifire brand sports the leading edge audio processing capabilities, as well as a host of other features, including of course, Firewire connectivity. With support for 7.1 digital surround sound and FireWire DV Editing, this card should cover just about ever aspect one could ask for in a sound card. But, the thing to keep in mind is that quantity of features does not always mean quality,... Read more...
Soyo's P4I Fire Dragon & P4S Dragon Ultra SiS 645 and i845D Compete - Soyo Style By, Dave Altavilla February 18, 2002   The motherboard engineers at Soyo, until recently, had been a little quiet in terms of releasing new, innovative products to the market for the Pentium 4 platform.  It almost seemed as if Soyo was sitting out on the side lines as the Pentium 4 was introduced, only driving new designs in the Socket A market.  Not that Soyo actually avoided the new Intel platform all together.  However, boards were not released based on the i850 chipset or the Socket 423.  Now, with the advent of DDR support for the Pentium 4 and with chipsets such as VIA's P4X266A,...
