Twelve FireFox fans, mainly Oregon State University students, created a large FireFox crop circle with a diameter of 220 feet on Saturday. The crop circle took two weeks to plan and was constructed in under 24 hours in an oat field near Amity, Oregon, with the permission of the land owners. The circle is completely invisible from the road, but clearly visible from the sky, as shown in the following picture. Visit the project page for a photo gallery and videos documenting the project.... Read more...
The Tech Report has reviewed a pair of nForce 590 SLI socket AM2 motherboards shoot-out style, the Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe and the Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H.  Both of these boards offer a slew of features, but which one did Geoff like best?  Well, you're going to have to read the article to find out. "WITH A SIX PACK of Serial ATA RAID, dual Gigabit Ethernet controllers, High Definition Audio, and a whopping 46 PCI Express lanes, NVIDIA's nForce 590 SLI chipset is easily the most feature-rich core logic chipset available for AMD's new Socket AM2 platform. Squeezing all of those features onto a motherboard is a tall order, which... Read more...
Sister site to [H]ard|OCP, [H]Enthusiast, has just posted a review of Foxconn's C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H Socket AM2 motherboard.  We posted some snapshots of this board in our Athlon 64 FX-62 launch article, and will have a full review shortly. "The Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H is the base of a very stable and solid NVIDIA SLI system. It provides automatic overclocking with the right components and manual overclocking that should satisfy novice and mainstream enthusiasts alike. The C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H is the most impressive motherboard we have seen out of Foxconn yet."  ... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that Foxconn could be showing off their own branded graphics cards at Computex this year. With boards designed by Foxconn and manufactured by Flextronics, there should be no major barriers to entry into the GPU market for Foxconn. Flextronics has been a longtime manufacturing partner for NVIDIA and is responsible for producing a significant amount of graphics cards which are then re-branded as one of the more familiar graphics card vendor products. Given Foxconn's enormous size, it should be interesting to see how their products are differentiated. More than likely, cost or features will be the focus of attention in hopes of capturing consumer attention.... Read more...
Mozilla's Firefox has become known for it's feature set and lack of exploits(well, compared to IE), and it can be argued that it's the better browser to use at home. In a corporate environment however, Internet Explorer's integration with Windows and other factors can outshine the usefulness of Firefox. "Two years ago I blogged about a similar subject. I discussed the advantages of Internet Explorer (IE) over Mozilla and other web browsers in a corporate environment. I concluded that IE is by far the better choice. Recently we deployed about 250 new computers and so I considered this question again. Now, Firefox is the main rival of IE. The... Read more...
Developers at the Mozilla Foundation are readying the first alpha version of the Firefox 2 open-source browser, and could release it as early as this week.The release includes a new "Places" feature intended to make it easier to find and return to recently visited Web pages. The development team decided to freeze the code for what will become Firefox 2.0a1 as of last Thursday, with a view to releasing the code this Friday, according to the minutes of a Firefox 2 status meeting held March 14 at the foundation's headquarters. However, another notice posted to the Web page of the Mozilla Developer Centre advised that the Thursday code freeze could lead to a release as early as Tuesday this week. ... Read more...
While the majority of our coverage here at HotHardware.com tends to favor enthusiast class products, the fact of the matter is affordable mainstream products are far more prevalent in the marketplace. Flagship video cards and overclockable motherboards are certainly nice, but there is a much larger market for highly integrated motherboards with a multitude of common features already on-board. With that in mind, we present to you the Foxconn WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS. Foxconn's WinFast 6150K8MA-8EKRS motherboard uses NVIDIA's relatively new GeForce 6150 + nForce 430 chipset with integrated graphics. Although the GeForce 6150 IGP isn't a pixel-processing powerhouse in comparison to most discreet graphics... Read more...
With all the system upgrading and building going on this time a year, a brand new power supply might be the last thing on your mind. The power consumption of new hardware, especially video cards run in SLI and Crossfire, can put a tremendous strain on your power supply. Unless you have a PSU that can handle the load, you're putting your system in some serious danger. Today, X-Bit labs has taken a look at a few different PSUs from Foxconn and Hiper Group, ranging from 350w to 580w. "Today we would like to introduce to you five new power supply units: two Foxconn and three more from Hiper Group. These PSU models range from 350W to 580W. So you... Read more...
The gang at HardOCP take a look at Foxconn's latest budget SLI offering called the NF4SK8AA. Offering a decent feature set for a very attractive price, it should be interesting to see if this motherboard makes it onto the list of quality components at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, it seems that you get what you pay for in this case as the team is less than impressed.I had some SATA RAID problems with this board, which we have seen with numerous other NFORCE 4 motherboards in the past. The simple fact is that we could not install an OS to a SATA RAID array for whatever reason, it just did not work. Using the 6.66 nForce driver set, we would slipstream the drivers and the entire install process... Read more...
Fox Filmed Entertainment believes the next generation of DVD formats is starting to show a clearer leader, according to a recent report at Reuters.  Sony's Blu-Ray and Toshiba's HD DVD technologies have been battling it out in yet another replay of "VHS vs BETA".  With Blu-Ray being built into the Playstation 3 next year, and growing support for Sony's technology, FOX's co-chairman feels the leader is becoming more evident.  Additionally, FOX Filmed Entertainment declares that they have no plans to offer HD DVD content, calling Blu-Ray the superior technology."In terms of the number of companies involved, the PS3 (PlayStation game console) momentum and the level of content...

Foxconn manufactures a wide range of products, ranging from video cards, to connectors, and as we'll explore today, motherboards. Over the years, we've had some experience with Foxconn, and while their products have not always been hardcore-enthusiast friendly, they have produced decent products. Today we'll be sampling Foxconn's WinFast NF4SK8AA-8EKRS, as they aim to bring an affordable, but high quality, SLI solution to the AMD Platform. Higher end motherboards from ASUS and Abit can retail for well over $160, and unfortunately many of us can't afford that. The Foxconn WinFast NF4SK8AA-8EKRS currently retails for around $125, however, which is a much more reasonable price for someone who wants... Read more...
Apple has admitted to a flaw that has left the screens on some iPod Nanos vulnerable to cracks. With about 1% of all the nanos that have shipped being affected, it's not a widespread problem, but that doesn't really make a difference if your one of those unfortunate few. Fortunately however, Apple has said they will replace the problem units. Now, I don't even own a regular iPod, I'm still listening to MP3s on my desktop. That seems primitive these days... stationary music is so 90's. XFX 7800GT SLI Review Posts @ Gamepyre.com "The 7800GT is a worthy successor to the 6800GT and sell at about the same price point. At the moment, a 7800GT outperforms the competition at the same price point,... Read more...
Today's hardware headlines have arrived. I still have a few things I need to take care of, so without further ado, the news... Computer Memory Basics @ Big Bruin "Memory is an essential component in any computer system, and as with most things, bigger and faster are always a good thing. But, if your budget doesn't allow for a few GBs of the highest performance modules out there, having the appropriate amount of good quality memory can make a tremendous impact on system performance, reliability, and user happiness."

Good Evening Folks! Marco here to let you all know what we've just posted a new article, where we pit Foxconn's 945P7AA-8EKRS2 against Gigabyte's GA-8I945P-G. These two new i945P based motherboards for LGA775 processors offer very similar feature sets, and are ready for Intel's Dual-Core line of Pentium-D processors.

With the Dual-Core processor push in full effect, prospective upgraders now have a whole new line of products to consider before making a purchase.  From the Intel side you have the Intel Pentium D series, which offers two non-HyperThreaded cores in a single package and the Pentium Extreme Edition with its dual-HyperThreaded cores.  While Intel's Pentium D processors do have an attractive price point, the newer CPUs require an upgraded chipset to function.  This adds to the overall cost of upgrading since most users will need a new motherboard to go along with a new dual-core CPU.  Conversely, there is the pricier AMD X2 processor line.  AMD's price point is currently...

Until Intel's next-generation chipsets arrive, with support for upcoming multi-core processors, the 925X and 925XE will remain the flagship chipsets for LGA775 based Pentium 4 processors.  The 925X and XE are very similar, as Dave pointed out in his introduction to the P4 EE 3.46GHz last October.  When we compare the 925X and 925XE, the main difference between the two is that the XE officially supports a system bus of 1066MHz versus the 925X's official peak of 800MHz.  This brings full support for the current flagship Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processor, which taps the 1066MHz bus, and potential support for future processors from Intel that will utilize this faster bus speed as...
