DigiTimes reports that the highly publicized AMD notebooks which will be brought to market by Dell later this year will in fact be equipped with ATI graphics chipsets. At this time, it is not known how much influence AMD's recent acquisition of ATI had upon the decision to use Radeon Mobility GPU's. Interestingly enough, comments have been made surrounding NVIDIA's financial reports which would seem to indicate that these AMD-based Dell notebooks will actually be using NVIDIA's nForce chipsets. Could we end up seeing an AMD notebook from Dell which uses an NVIDIA chipset and an ATI GPU? With the notebooks slated to launch in late October or early November, we will know for certain...

The MCP61S is an all-in-one integrated graphics processor (IGP) from NVIDIA that is designed for AMD's AM2 platform. It will combine the capabilities of a traditional northbridge and southbridge into a single chip along with a DirectX 9.0c compliant graphics solution. It will replace the GeForce 6100 IGP and will be built on NVIDIA's 90nm process. Digitimes is reporting that motherboards using the MCP61S will be available at the end of August. "The new IGP chipset could help motherboard manufacturers reduce design and production costs, as the unit price of MCP61S-based motherboards could be lowered to less than US$80, the makers estimate." The single chip design of... Read more...
GamePC has an interesting article on-line detailing their experience testing a Quad-SLI setup. Some of the numbers look absolutely fantastic, while others will leave you scratching your head. There is no doubt that Quad-SLI is the most powerful graphics configuration currently available. But is it worth your hard-earned cash?  That's the question GamePC tries to answer.  If you'd like a second opinion, Dave took a Quad-SLI rig for a spin as well.  His thoughts are in this article from a few weeks back. "Today at GamePC, we've taken a look at nVidia's "consumer-level" Quad SLI solution, consisting of dual GeForce 7950 GX2 1 GB graphics cards and their newly released Forceware... Read more...

Legion Hardware answers the age old question today, "Which GeForce 7 graphics card is the best value?"  The author runs through a handful of benchmarks with 7900, 7600, and 7300 GTs, and explains where each card fits in the 3D food chain. "Providing you are going to play the latest games with quality settings, such as FSAA & Aniso enabled, the 7900GT is a must. That said when operating at their default frequencies, the 7600GT did deliver the best bang for your buck as it dominated the 7300GT with ease and was only around 30~40% slower than the 7900GT depending on the game. However if you plan on overclocking, the 7300GT is... Read more...

While browsing through the Yahoo Financial forums for ATI and NVIDIA, I stumbled across this interesting post. Here, someone claims that NVIDIA is currently working with Sony to develop a graphics card that features both an NVIDIA GPU as well as a Cell processor. Obviously, if this rumor has any substance to it the Cell processor would not have the same number of SPE's as the CELL in Playstation 3. Regardless, could this be a hint at a lucrative way of handling physics on the graphics card? Rumor is that Nvidia and Sony will make an integrated video card with a Cell processor and Nvidia graphics chip combined... 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...

Our friends over at the Tech Report have rounded up a trio of budget-priced graphics cards and put them trough the wringer in typical TR fashion.  When all was said and done, one card was the clear winner.  But we won't give away the conclusion.  Head on over to TR for the full scoop... "While ATI and NVIDIA have successfully massaged their Radeon X1000 and GeForce 7 architectures into more affordable flavors, they're not the only ones duking it out in the budget space. S3 has slowly clawed its way back into the game, and the Chrome S27 is poised to take on the GeForce 7300 GS and Radeon X1300 Pro at the low end of the market.... Read more...
The Inquirer reports that NVIDIA has just launched their first 1GB graphics card with the arrival of the new Quadro FX 5500. Based on the powerful G71 GPU, this new graphics card will be packed with a whopping 1GB of GDDR3 memory. For those who can't afford the high price of the 1GB model, there will be 512MB and 256MB variants which should be significantly cheaper. It seems that just when the industry was getting used to the idea of 512MB cards, the bar has been raised once again. Now the real question is how long until we see consumer-based gaming cards showing up with 1GB of memory? It will be a PCIe card and... Read more...
