One of our favorite uses for all this hardware, gaming, is starting to generate titles large enough to effect other parts of the entertainment industry.  No longer are A-list games only competing with each other for sales, but now it seems that the latest movie releases are being factored into the equation.  Of course, whatever effects the studios also has an impact on their bottom line:"We anticipate the video game release of GTA IV on April 29 could dampen the potential from Iron Man’s theatrical release on May 2," (Janco Partners analyst Mike) Hickey said in a Wednesday note regarding Marvel Entertainment stock....

Gigabyte is no stranger to innovation. Year after year, we see the company build unique features into its products to increase performance, improve power utilization, decrease noise, and enhance the user experience. As enthusiasts, we love to see innovations that improve products and differentiate them from the rest of the pack. Gigabyte has done just that with one of its GeForce 8800 GT video cards, the GV-NX88T512HP. Most companies selling 8800s just use the NVIDIA reference design with a different sticker on the cooler, and sometimes the cards will get overclocked as well. Gigabyte wasn't happy with that idea, though, when it designed its latest 8800 GT TurboForce Edition card, which it called... Read more...

If the blockbuster successes of games like World of Warcraft and Counterstrike, compared to the lack-luster reception of ultra-high-end titles like Crysis, have taught us anything, it is that the vast majority of PC gamers are not running games which are incredibly graphics intensive. As low-cost gaming consoles continue to steal many of these casual gamers away from the PC, component manufacturers for the PC platform are starting to think differently about how to approach the gaming market. As of late, we’re seeing a significant and refreshing shift towards lower-cost components for the mainstream market. Getting more performance for your dollar is now more exciting than getting the...

NVIDIA launched the first release of their next generation GeForce 9 GPU architecture today and this time the company decided to come out with a mainstream, more reasonably priced offering first, versus the traditional high-end, pricey flagship boards that are typically showcased for the introduction of a new graphics processor.  The new NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT is based on the NVIDIA G94 GPU and is manufactured on a 65nm process with a 64 stream processor architecture. To put that in perspective, NVIDIA’s previous generation mid-range component (the 8600 GT) had half the number of SPs at 32, though due its 65nm process shrink, the 9600 GPU is still quite small thus still cost and power-efficient. ...

By now, we assume just about everyone knows the GeForce 8800 GT's story.  NVIDIA launched the 512MB 8800 GT in late October of last year and touted a price range of $200-250.  But retail prices initially ended up being over $300 due to supply issues. You can bet that ATI was smiling a couple weeks later when the company launched the Radeon HD 3850 and 3870 and retail stock was available closer to MSRP prices. NVIDIA hit back, though, by launching the 256MB version of the 8800 GT and getting more stock onto store shelves. It goes without saying that NVIDIA wanted this 256MB part to remain closer to those original $200-250 price claims. You may be wondering what the differences are... Read more...

Late last year, NVIDIA released a pair of new 8800-series graphics cards based on their G92 GPU.  The new cards were designed to keep NVIDIA's products at the top of the food chain at their respective price points, while also being a bit more affordable.  The first of the two was the GeForce 8800 GT.  It brought high-end performance to the mainstream crowd mostly due to its 112 stream processor configuration and 65m G92 GPU.  The G92's shrink to 65nm from TSMC's 90nm process used with the G80, brings with it lower power usage, but also lower prices due to a reduced die size, enabling NVIDIA to set the MSRP for the 8800...

Availability is still tight for the GeForce 8800 GT, but we thought it was time to round a few cards up for a HotHardware-style benchmark fest anyway.  We’ve got factory-overclocked GeForce 8800 GT cards from Asus, EVGA, and MSI in house, the EN8800GT TOP, the e-GeForce 8800 GT KO, and the NX8800GT, respectively.  At their most basic level, all three of these cards are quite similar, but each company does put their own spin on the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT in an effort to differentiate their product from the competition.  Which one does the best job remains to be seen.  Click the link below and check them out...GeForce 8800 GT Round-Up: Asus, EVGA, MSI...

At the end of October '07, NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GT 512MB hit the scene and garnered near universal praise due to its strong performance and value proposition.  With its revamped 65nm GPU and single-slot board design, the GeForce 8800 GT was poised to storm the $200 - $249 graphics card space.  However, due to availability issues, street prices remained on the high side at launch.  This was especially the case for factory-overclocked models from well respected manufacturers that are currently selling for upwards of $300.

NVIDIA’s G80 GPU has been sitting atop the 3D graphics food chain for well over a year now.  It was way back in November of ’06 that the GeForce 8800 GTX and original 640MB GTS arrived – the first two graphics cards based on the G80 GPU.  Sometime later, the more affordable 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS and current flagship GeForce 8800 Ultra arrived, but these two cards are based on the same GPU that powers NVIDIA’s initial 8800-series offerings. Obviously, even though NVIDIA’s products still clearly outperform ATI’s at the high-end, it’s time for a refresh, if just to keep things exciting for consumers this holiday season.  The first glimpse of what NVIDIA had in store came a little...

NVIDIA is updating its product stack again this morning, this time with a newly designed GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB card based on the 65nm G92 GPU.  This new GTS features 128 stream processors, up from 96 in the original GTS, but its memory bus width has been cut down to 256-bits.  This new configuration gives the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB an interesting performance profile.  We’ve got a couple of retail-ready GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB cards in the labs from Asus and XFX and put them through the wringer with some current DX10 titles.  Click the link below and check them out...NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB: Asus and XFX...
