Hey folks, I'm in a bit of a rush at the moment, so please excuse the lack of chat as I get right to the news. Oh, wait! Before you check out the articles below, if your one of the lucky people to own a 7800GTX, well a Leadtek 7800GTX that is, then make sure to head on over to their download page and get the new 7800 GTX bios that increases the core to 450MHz and the memory to 625MHz(Thanks Bjorn3d). Heh, so much for the lack of chat :) Enjoy! AMD vs. Intel; The Legal Challenge @ CoolTechZone "Yesterday it turned out to be the most widely anticipated day in the microprocessor realm. AMD finally filed an antitrust complaint against its archrival Intel, the world's largest chipmaker. Regardless... Read more...
Good evening all...  By now you've probably read a few of the articles post around the web regarding the new Microsoft Xbox 360 console and the ATi Graphics Processor technology that will be the main rendering engine in the machine.  If you haven't had the chance to dig into the scene yet, there are articles up at the following sites: Firing Squad's "Inside Xbox 360's Graphics" does a good job of covering the basics of the architecture and includes an interview with ATi VP of Engineering for Xbox 360, Bob Feldstein. HardOCP has two articles up - An "Xbox 360 Sneak Peek" and "Xbox 360 GPU Features" with their usual down-to-earth layman's approach to the... Read more...

Good morning.  ATI has released a counter-attack to TurboCache with the release of their HyperMemory Technology and we've pulled together a preview of its features. On paper, HyperMemory is similar in design to TurboCache, using a combination of local memory and system memory to offer advanced performance in a business-class card.

  Back in December 2004, NVIDIA introduced their latest evolution in the budget graphics card market with the release of TurboCache technology.  The focus with TurboCache was both system resource utilization and economics, in an effort to deliver a quality business-class/casual gaming video card at the lowest possible price point.  NVIDIA wanted to achieve this while still offering many of the features of the higher-end 6600 and 6800 series cards but at a much lower price tag.  Through the use of software and hardware, a new TurboCache designed video card could allocate a chunk of system memory to be used concurrently with the video card's local memory.  This meant that...

When we think of TV/Video combination cards, we often think of ATI's All-In-Wonder series and NVIDIA's Personal Cinema.  Each company has been offering various hybrid cards for quite some time, covering the spectrum from high-priced enthusiast-class to the value-priced solutions.  ATI clearly has the name recognition with its All-In-Wonder and the Personal Cinema is also a solid offering in its own right, but you may be surprised to find out that these are not the only solutions out there. Today, we are going to take a look at a new TV/Video combination card from S3 dubbed OmniChrome.  S3 married an analog TV Tuner with its DeltaChrome S4 Nitro Graphics chip, upping the clock speed...

Welcome back HotHardware fans!  Today's announcement by NVIDIA regarding their new MXM (Mobile PCI eXpress Module) initiative has generated quite a bit of interest.  So much interest that we were able to get a statement from ATi on the topic.  Here's a direct "cut-and-paste" from the correspondence...   •"Industry Standard Module" - while the concept is great, this is not what is being proposed. An industry standard module would be created through the creation of a working group comprised of OEMs, ODMs, graphics vendors, etc - an industry standard comes through collaboration - that is not what has been done here (ATI and others were never consulted),...

  We recently had a chance to talk with representatives from NVIDIA regarding a new initiative they've spearheaded, with the goal of bringing a consistent graphics interface to PCI Express equipped notebooks.  Historically, the graphics processors used in laptops / notebooks have been impossible, or prohibitively expensive, to upgrade.  A few companies, like Alienware and Toshiba, have recently introduced upgradeable notebooks, but they each use different standards.  Alienware's parts can't be used in Toshiba's notebooks, and vice-versa.  The video cards used in desktop systems, however, can be easily upgraded because there is a consistent interface standard (i.e. AGP)...

A few more newsworthy items hit the inbox this afternoon, so I figured I'd take a break from laying out pages and taking pictures to serve up another dose of the good stuff...  BlueTake BT009M Bluetooth USB 2.0 Pen Drive Review @ Modtown: "The BlueTake BT009M Bluetooth USB 2.0 Pen Drive is a great all-in-one product, finished in a cool blue plastic shell. It brings together two very useful and two very mobile technologies together, making it ideal for the travelling business or home user and their laptop..."  Primecooler Hypercool II+ reviewed @ Hi-TechReviews.com: "Its design is similar to the Zalman 7000 series heat sink but in my opinion it had been improved upon....

GeForce FX Go 5200 and 5600 Mobile GPUs NVIDIA's New Mobile FX Offering Unveiled By - Dave Altavilla March 13, 2003 The PC Graphics Industry certainly has been heating up over the past few weeks, to say the least. NVIDIA and ATi alone are making coverage, of their new technologies for the desktop alone, a full time job.  In addition however, coincident with Intel's "Centrino" Launch and Mobile/Wireless initiative, the Mobile Graphics space is bubbling and buzzing as well.  ATi gave us a taste of their new "M10" core, with an intimate demo of their Mobility  Radeon 9600.  In like fashion, very recently we were briefed on NVIDIA's new GeForce FX products...

  ATI 'M10' Mobile Graphics Preview Mobile Gaming Diversifies By, Chris Angelini March 13th, 2003 The computer industry has been in the doldrums as of late.  And as much as we want to deny it, business isn't picking up as quickly as the analysts forecasted.  It isn't voodoo, though.  There is no witchcraft involved in judging the future of the fair industry in which we work.  Look at the roadmaps - processors continue getting faster, core logic adapts in time, and we are continually treated to more I/O bandwidth.  But that's to be expected.  That is what we call evolution.  What the industry needs is something to reignite the excitement that was felt when...

The Matrox Parhelia 512 Matrox Re-Enters The 3D Graphics Ring - Big, Bad and Pretty By -Dave Altavilla May 14, 2002   We know you've been waiting for this, haven't you?  Of course you have.  Since the launch of the Matrox G450, we don't know of any hard core PC Hardware Enthusiast that hasn't been waiting for Matrox to step back up to the plate, with a new high end 3D Gaming Graphics card.  It was then that Matrox Graphics made a conscious decision to step back from the ridiculously competitive 3D Graphics scene and watch as giants fell.  Perhaps their next generation 3D Gaming chip was not ready for prime time or perhaps they just didn't want to duke it out in the down...

The Gigabyte GA-6CX and GA-MG400 i820 Motherboard and G400 Based Graphics Card - A package Deal The long awaited Intel i820 chipset has finally been released to the market.  What is somewhat surprising is the amount of time it is taking motherboard manufacturers to get boards designed and released based on this new chipset.  We all know Intel hasn't been exactly smooth with their transition to the new RAMBUS memory architecture that the i820 chipset utilizes.  Perhaps this is why there have obviously been a few hurdles to overcome with this new chipset. In any event, Gigabyte Technology is one of the first manufacturers to release a board, based on the i820, that supports...
