Hello Everyone. We've just posted an article where we explore the performance of NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS cards running in dual-card SLI configurations. Here's a snip from the piece... "NVIDIA has released a couple of fresh sets of Forceware drivers for the GeForce 8800 series, so we thought it was a good time to revisit the GTX and GTS to see how a pair of each type of card performed in a dual-GPU SLI configuration. So, armed with dual GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS cards, and a top-of-the-line testbed, we set out to do just that." Read The Rest Right Here!... Read more...
A few short weeks ago, NVIDIA unveiled the GeForce 8800 series of graphics cards and the nForce 600 family of core logic chipsets on the very same day. The flagship parts in each of these product categories, the GeForce 8800 GTX and the nForce 680i SLI, made the basis of what NVIDIA has dubbed their "Ultimate Gaming Platform". The feature set and initial testing of the GeForce 8800 series of cards and the nForce 680i SLI chipset definitely gave credence to this title, but at the time of the launch NVIDIA hadn't quite worked all of the kinks out of the G80's early drivers.  As such, we only included a handful of preliminary SLI benchmarks in our coverage of the launch....

NVIDIA's two major launches last week marked a significant advancement in both 3D Graphics and PC Motherboard feature-set and performance.  The launch of NVIDIA's G80 GPU with their GeForce 8800 series of graphics cards was the advent of the first truly DX10 capable GPU architecture on the market.  Furthermore, upon its introduction, the nForce 680i SLI was widely acknowledge as the most feature-rich chipset for the Intel Core 2 dual-core and quad-core platforms to date; even more-so than Intel's own P965 and 975X Express chipsets.  In industry speak, there's no question these two launches smacked of PC tech-geek nirvana, not to mention...

A couple of weeks ago at an Editor's Day event at their headquarters in Santa Clara, California, NVIDIA proclaimed that they planned to "redefine reality" with their self-branded ultimate gaming platform. The products in the spotlight throughout the event were the new nForce 680i SLI chipset, the upcoming 680a SLI, and a new family of graphics cards built around the company's forthcoming DX10 capable G80 GPU. The G80 at the heart of what became known as the GeForce 8800 GTX and 8800 GTS represented a complete shift in NVIDIA's GPU architecture. NVIDIA's Tony Tomasi even went so far as to say, "every transistor in the chip is new". Of course NVIDIA... Read more...

The enthusiast gaming notebook has become an extremely viable and desirable alternative to today's desktop systems, which in-part explains why the mobile segment is one of the fastest growing in the PC industry. The latest crop of high performance notebooks are an engineering marvel of sorts, as they come dangerously close to providing the same levels of performance without the excessive bulk and heat associated with a full desktop system. Over the course of the last year in particular, we have witnessed the notebook gain further ground on desktops with the arrival of new processors and NVIDIA's SLI multi-GPU configurations on the notebook platform. As such, we now have... Read more...

  It can be tough for a company to decide how and where to market a video card in today's demanding retail environment. Price something too high and only a brave few might purchase the card; price it too low and it could be dismissed as a low-end or budget card by some consumers, regardless of its value proposition. These issues can typically determine where said card can be purchased. It's no coincidence that large resellers like Best Buy or Circuit City typically only carry merchandise under a certain price point, as this is where the bulk of sales are generated. The flip side to this situation is maintaining the leadership in a two-way contest at the high-end. Every couple of... Read more...

As of late, due to reported issues with overheating and graphic anomalies with overclocked GeForce cards, many gamers are starting to think twice before purchasing factory overclocked cards. Some hesitation before buying the highest overclocked card makes sense, but XFX along with the other companies affected by this problem are addressing customers' concerns and backing up their products with solid warranty support. If you've lost some faith in XFX, you might want to consider that NVIDIA appears to be 100% behind the company. The only factory overclocked GeForce 7950 GX2 at launch was from XFX (the XFX GeForce 7950 GX2 570M XXX).  The two companies have a strong relationship... Read more...
