Hello HotHardware Fans! Over the last couple of weeks, we have exclusively had the chance to preview a new small form factor PC called the GT3, from the GTR Tech Corporation. Unlike the boxy little designs that we have become accustomed to in the SFF arena, the GT3 is sleeker and more versatile; looking more like a slimmer, shorter version of an upright mid-tower. And best of all, it can accommodate standard ATX motherboards and full sized expansion cards. Click the link below to check it out... Read The Article Right Here!... Read more...
It's probably safe to assert that, by and large, DIY Small Form Factor PCs are still niche products.  Although they have been offered by the likes of Shuttle, AOpen, MSI and many others for nearly half a decade now, there's still an audible gasp that's heard from non PC-centric folks when then first encounter one.  Questions range from, "What is it?" to "What does it do?"  And even when it has been explained that the mini machine is simply a PC, albeit much smaller than usual, heads still shake, believing that a PC must be big and bulky in order to work properly.  It's a common belief, if only because whether at work, at the store, or even in their own home, most PC users have a standard mid-sized...

Just in case you're the type who likes to skip right to the news, we wanted to let you know we've got a new article live featuring Asus' take on the recently released GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, the aptly named EN8800GTS/HTDP/320M. Unlike a few other 320MB GTS cards, the Asus EN8800GTS/HTDP/320M is not pre-overclocked from the factory. It does ship with a decent accessory bundle, however, that includes a couple of full version games. Asus also throws in a handful of proprietary applications and utilities in an attempt to further add value to their product. Head on over to the site and check it out...

A few weeks ago, NVIDIA unleashed the relatively affordable 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS on the world. On launch day, we took a look at a pre-overclocked 320MB card from XFX and ended up giving it an Editor's Choice award due to its feature set, performance, and overall value.  Today, we're going to shine the spotlight on another retail-ready 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS card, but this one comes by way of Asus. Unlike XFX's card, the Asus EN8800GTS/HTDP/320M is not pre-overclocked from the factory.

Just in case you're the type who likes to jump straight down to the news, we wanted to let you all know that we've just posted a new article in which we evaluate the features and performance of Foconn's GeForce 8800 GTX. Here's a snip from the piece: "With so many vendors offering G80-based products, it is difficult to determine which company should receive your hard-earned money. To aid in that decision, we'll be taking a look at Foxconn's take on the reference GeForce 8800 GTX. By taking a proven design and adding a solid bundle without adversely effecting cost, it appears as though Foxconn is quickly becoming a viable threat in the GPU vendor market."

Late last year, NVIDIA introduced the GeForce 8800 GTX. Armed with a totally new unified architecture and complete DX10 support, this graphics card was an extremely potent new flagship. The world was hesitant to proclaim this new GPU as the ideal enthusiast graphics card as ATI's highly-anticipated R600 GPU was expected at any moment. But months later, we find the GeForce 8800 GTX still dominating benchmarks and AMD's R600 GPU is still missing in action. With several months out in the wild to aid in ironing out bugs and optimizing performance and functionality, the GeForce 8800 GTX is seemingly getting stronger with age. Developers have become extremely familiar... Read more...
Hello Everyone. We wanted to let you all know that we've just posted a new article in which we evaluate the features, bundles, and performance of two HDMI-equipped cards from Asus, the EAX1600PRO/I/256M/A and the EN7600GT/HDTI/256M/A. As their names imply, these cards are powered by ATI's Radeon X1600 Pro and NVIDIA's GeForce 7600 GT GPUs. Click the link below to check them out... Read The Rest of the Article Right Here....

Today at HotHardware, we will be looking at two video cards from Asus.  They don't necessarily scream "power user" and they aren't adorned with the flashiest packaging. Instead, these two cards are more like the utilitarian work-horses that one might expect to find in a mid-range PC, or even a DYI build that's catered more to function than fashion.  That doesn't mean we won't run any benchmarks with our favorite games to see how they compare to each other, as well as to another mid-level card, but don't focus strictly on the benchmark results in this article. These two cards aren't designed to set records in Half-Life 2, but rather offer... Read more...
Hello All. We've just posted a new article in which we evaluate the features and performance of Sapphire's affordable Radeon X1950 GT. Here's a snip from the piece: "Sapphire clocks the Radeon X1950 GT at levels which are close to, but slightly lower than the Radeon X1950 Pro. While the Radeon X1950 Pro featured the RV570 GPU clocked at 580MHz with 1.4GHz GDDR-3 memory, the Radeon X1950 GT features the RV570 at 500MHz with 1.2GHz GDDR-3 memory. While a 500MHz GPU clock may seem quite high for a mid-range part, keep in mind that this GPU features 36 pixel shaders, which is 3/4 that of the high-end Radeon X1950 XTX."... Read more...
There is a common occurrence in the graphics industry that happens near the launch of any major new architecture. Before a company introduces a major change in their GPU designs, they will take their existing GPU designs and offer them at a wide variety of different speeds and price points, sometimes surprisingly low priced, in order to clear out inventory before their new architecture comes into view. The most recent example of this would be Nvidia's GeForce 7900 GTO, which launched just a few weeks before their new GeForce 8 architecture, and provided amazing price/performance levels for those who bought it, but was quickly put out of favor when Nvidia's DX10 architecture launched....

Here we are, barely 12 weeks out from the initial introduction of the GeForce 8 series, and NVIDIA is ready with yet another new product based on the GPU formerly code named G80. The new GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB we'll be showcasing here today is essentially the same card as the original 8800 GTS, except that the 320MB model simply has half of the amount of frame buffer memory. According to NVIDIA's reference specifications the original 640MB 8800 GTS and the new 320MB model share the same GPU and memory clocks, memory interface, stream processor configuration, PCB, etc. The actual GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB card we'll be testing here today, however, comes by way of XFX and it is not clocked...

As enthusiasts, we'd all love to own a killer quad-core powered rig complete with a healthy amount of RAM, super-fast hard drives, and a pair of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce 8800 GTX cards pushing the pixels. The kind coin required to assemble a system like this puts them well out of reach for the majority of us, however, hence the immense popularity of more affordable, mainstream products like the one we're going to talk about today, EVGA's e-GeForce 7950 GT KO. As the newest member of the GeForce 7 family, the GeForce 7950 GT has a lot going for it. The GPU offers all of the features of its more expensive sibling, the GeForce 7900 GTX, and arguably more thanks to the full HDCP... Read more...

Here's a snip from the piece: "The GeForce 8800 GTX is definitely the top performing card on the market right now, and MSI's offering is a great example. Overall, nothing else can touch the 8800 GTX at the moment, especially when you look at its performance versus other single-GPU solutions." Read The Rest Right Here... Read more...
[H] has an article on-line today that pits AMD and Intel CPUs head-to-head. With NVIDIA's 8800 series GPU supplying a big jump in performance over the last generation of video cards, they revisit just what these CPUs do for you while gaming. Is one truly better? "With today's fastest video cards, we certainly saw more differences between our AMD and Intel processors than we did at the launch of the Core 2 Duo, and certainly more differences than we saw in March of last year. Undoubtedly, the Core 2 Duo allowed us a better gaming experience overall. Also we saw some examples where we were again GPU bottlenecked in games even with these massively fast BFGTech 8800 GTX cards." You can see their... Read more...
As enthusiasts, we are always anxiously awaiting new GPU architectures, with additional pipelines and more memory. All of these aspects usually go into creating the next must-have flagship video card. Like us, you've probably been wondering when single GPU cards would sport a full gigabyte of memory. Dual-GPU cards, like NVIDIA's GeForce 7950 GX2, already boast 1GB of high-speed GDDR3. And as exciting as that may sound, it isn't quite as geek-tastic as having 1GB of memory coupled to a single GPU. We all know it's coming; it's only a matter of time. NVIDIA's latest line-up, the GeForce 8 Series, got us one step closer as the 8800 GTX features 768MB of fast GDDR3 memory.... Read more...
Sprint has just announced its WiMAX build-out schedule for 2007, and initial service is set to be provided to Chicago and Washington, DC. These are test markets for Sprint, which hopes to roll out the high-speed technology to 100 million people by the end of 2008. The company will drop more than $800 million on WiMAX upgrades this year, and nearly $2 billion next year, to build what Sprint refers to as its "4G" network. WiMAX promises higher speeds and better coverage than existing wireless data networks based on EV-DO or EDGE technology, and Sprint wants to ensure that it is a leading provider of wireless, high-speed access.

What's attractive about the GeForce 7950 GT is that it doesn't cost much more than a 7900 GT yet it offers nearly the same performance of a much pricier 7900 GTX. Additionally, the 7950 GT sports 512MB DDR3 clocked at 1.4GHz (effective). The GPU core runs at a speedy 550MHz and just like the 7900 GT and GTX, the 7950 GT also boasts 8 vertex shaders and 24 pixel shaders. Today, we have a GeForce 7950 GT from Gigabyte in the labs to see just how well the new GeForce 7 Series card can perform. The Gigabyte GV-NX795T512H-RH features reference clock speeds and a Zalman cooler for a little differentiation outside of the typical reference design HSF assembly. Read on to find out more......

NVIDIA has enjoyed quite a bit of success the last couple of years thanks in part to its GeForce 6 and 7 Series graphics cards. Like every other company in the world, NVIDIA likes to ride its success as long as possible. In NVIDIA's case, this can be done with product refreshes. The most recent refresh brought us the GeForce 7950 GT, interestingly positioned between the 7900 GT and 7900 GTX. What's attractive about the GeForce 7950 GT is that it doesn't cost much more than a 7900 GT yet it offers nearly the same performance of a much pricier 7900 GTX.
