Hello Everyone!  In case you missed the fresh link at the top of the page, I'm here to let you know that we've just posted a new article where we evaluate the features and performance of Asus' EN7900GT TOP.  Here's a snip from the article...   "It's the midrange that the most sales will be made in, and where we will focus our attention on today. Asus' latest release in this field is the EN7900GT TOP, based on the NVIDIA 7900GT GPU. As we alluded to earlier, the 7900GT is an updated version of the 7800GTX, formerly NVIDIA's high-end GPU but with a smaller die size and, as result, higher clock speeds. However, the architecture really hasn't changed... Read more...
The never ending see-saw battle between NVIDIA and ATi has resulted in quicker card releases to the market. Whereas such events were met with much anticipation and speculation from the online community, the onslaught of new releases with their various "flavors" have also perhaps confused the average prospective buyer somewhat in addition to creating a bit of marketing buzz.  Also, it's simply just not feasible for most PC owners to go out and buy the latest card every 3-4 months, and truthfully, there usually isn't a compelling reason to do so. Much of what we've seen lately are product refreshes: raise the clock speed here, tweak the memory there, maybe throw in some... Read more...
There is an interesting article posted tonight at NeoSeeker. They bill the article as a review of Powercolor's X1800GTO card, but they test a number of different CrossFire configurations in an attempt to see if there is a difference in performance when using a dongle or not, and when switching from an x8 / x8 to an x16 / x16 PCI Express Lane configuration. "Our Crossfire testing proves that two X1800 GTO's, even on an older dual 8x board will still provide good performance. Despite the gains that an X1800 Crossfire Master card setup present, that's hardly a viable solution and should not be considered in place of another X1800 GTO.... Read more...
Our friends at PC Per have just posted a double-review of Asus' 7900 GT Top and 7600 GT Silent video cards. If you're in the market for a good mid-to-high end video card, you'll want to check these cards out. "Looking at the front of the card, you can see that the passive cooling solution is quite a bit larger than the cooling on the reference cards and it needs to be in order to pull all the heat from the GPU effectively. Two heatpipes connect the heat block over the GPU in the center of the card up to the heatsink fins that are located above the cards PCB board."  ... Read more...
MSI's GeForce 7600GT, with its dual-slot intake cooler is on the HotHardware test bench this morning and it puts the hurt on ATI's Radeon X1600XT and then some. Please also drop a Digg or three in for us, so that others can hear the news.  Thanks!... Read more...
  While many of us are impressed with the features and performance promised by today's top of the line graphics cards, in reality, not too many of us have the budgets to afford one of these gaming powerhouses.  Often times, the common user needs to keep things in monetary perspective and consider a more practical approach to their graphics card desires.  The key is finding the best bang for the buck, where performance, price and other added features all converge to bring the consumer the best overall value for their dollar. One such product is NVIDIA's GeForce 7600GT series, which aims to take on ATI's closest competitor, the Radeon X1600 XT, while remaining a viable... Read more...
There is an interesting article posted at NeoSeeker tonight. They bill the article as a review of Powercolor's X1800GTO card, but the crew also tests performance in a number of different CrossFire configurations. According to their results, there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason to purchase an X1800 Master card to use alongside an 1800GTO. "Our Crossfire testing proves that two X1800 GTO's, even on an older dual 8x board will still provide good performance. Despite the gains that an X1800 Crossfire Master card setup present, that's hardly a viable solution and should not be considered in place of another X1800 GTO. Hopefully ATI... Read more...
Palit has produced their on version of Nvidia's 7900GT, featuring a two slot cooler and 512MB of Ram. Having 512MB of onboard memory gives the card an extra kick in certain situations, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be an all around winner in the benchmark tests. "A dual-slot NVIDIA graphics card with 512MB of DDR3 memory and an overclocked core that's running at 550MHz. Is this really a GeForce 7900 GT? Well, it still is, albeit Palit's special Sonic version of a GeForce 7900 GT. Read on as we find out if it's as fast as its name."  ... Read more...
GDHardware.com has a whole lot of 7600 goodness with their XFX & MSI 7600GT shoot-out. Performance is similar of course, with the XFX holding a slight lead. MSI on the other hand has packed one heck of a cooler on their card, which could lead to some good overclocking results. "If we had to pick which of the two is are favorite we'd have to give the slight nod to XFX. Between their better stock clock rates and double lifetime warranty we feel as if they're the ones to beat. Hardcore overclockers are going to want to snag the MSI card as its cooler lends to that demographic - or I guess anyone who demands a more silent solution will have a higher regard for MSI's double-tall GPU...

If you're on the hunt for a high-end(but quiet) video card, make sure not to look past ASUS's 7800GT Top Silent card. We've had a chance to inspect ASUS's unique silent cooler design before, and it is quite impressive. Does the cooling performance carry over to a more powerful card like a 7800GT though? "Today we are going to introduce to you a graphics card from ASUS based on Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT and equipped with their own patented passive cooling system aka SilentCool. Let's try to find out if they managed to create a truly high-end and silent graphics solution."  ... Read more...
DailyTech sends word that they're hearing of a 90u GeForce 7300 GT which is essentially a GeForce 7600 GS which will be equipped with only 8 pipelines and run at a lower 350MHz core frequency. In addition, the 128-bit interface should help ensure that this part is faster than the current GeForce 7300 GS. Add to this the ability to run SLI without a bridge and we find this to be a very compelling budget part. Some online merchants in the US already had the GeForce 7300GT for sale. MWave has a 128MB version of the card available for $63 USD. A 256MB version of the card will also be available from most tier two NVIDIA... Read more...

It looks like Best Buy isn't the only reseller to have let the Radeon X1900 GT loose at little early. If you do a quick search in our Price Grabber engine, you'll see that Dell has cards available and Directron is taking pre-orders as well.  Could end up being a nice card for the money.  We'll let you know for certain once we get a chance to test one...  ...

The Inquirer is reporting today that one of their readers was able to purchase a Radeon X1900 GT/GTO card at his local Best Buy store, and that ATI plans to officially announce the card on May 9. Considering the fact that they've got pics of the card and box, and screenshots of the drivers up and running, you can't refute what the Inq's got to say today. "A faithful reader informed us that he went into his local Best Buy store and managed to buy an ATI-branded X1900 GT retail card. We note that the card is clocked at 574MHz core, and works at 500MHz in 2D, while the memory is clocked at 594MHz. The chip was heating up to 63 Celsius... Read more...
Fudo at the Inquirer reports that Gainward is prepping to release a 512MB GeForce 7900 GT in both PCIE and AGP varieties. With prices being significantly cheaper than the flagship GeForce 7900 GTX 512MB, Gainward's new cards could easily become one of the GPU bargains of a lifetime as it "should" have no problems being overclocked to those speeds and possibly beyond. Perhaps the biggest story though is that Gainward is actually releasing the same card (albeit a different name) on the AGP platform. Without question, this will be the fastest AGP card money can buy for those not ready to jump to a new PCIE platform just yet.... Read more...
Our buddy Fudo over at The Inquirer has just posted some new information regarding ATI's upcoming Radeon X1900 GT GPU. Apparently, yields for R580 are stellar as the assumed 500MHz core frequency for this GPU is supposedly going to be a stunning 575MHz. In similar fashion, the estimated 1GHz memory frequency is now said to be 1200MHz. Obviously, these boosted frequencies will result in some hefty performance gains. Unfortunately, the cost of this board also increased as the card will sell for $350 instead of the $300 many expected. Time will tell if the ~$300 GeForce 7900GT can leverage the $50 advantage or not. Those looking for more information on the Radeon X1900 GT can... Read more...
In their latest review, Hardware Zone has pitted the MSI NX7600GT-T2D256E against ASUS's EN7600GT 256MB. While you're not going to see any kind of clear performance winner, you do get a chance to see what kind of bundle MSI provides, the card's overclocking potentional, and decide if it's worth the $179 price tag. "History seems to be repeating itself as the GeForce 7600 GT is poised to duplicate the successful GeForce 6600 GT. With the mid-range market settling down after the initial flurry of launches, this is the time to compare vendors and not GPUs. Here then is our take on the MSI NX7600GT-T2D256E."... Read more...
Fudo over at The Inquirer reports that ATI's Radeon X1900 GTO which was slated to launch the end of this month has been delayed. With supply of the Radeon X1800 GTO which we reviewed diminishing in the channel, ATI needs this card to fill the price-point until they can launch the RV560 and RV570 GPUs. Unfortunately, we now know these GPU's are slightly delayed as well as they will not be made at 80u as planned and instead need to be transitioned over to a 90u process.  The X1900 GTO is even more expensive to produce, but it is meant to hold its space until the new golden kids named RV560 and RV570 come to market. ATI simply wants to shake up Nvidia's mainstream... Read more...
ExtremeTech have posted a preview of NVIDIA's new flagship mobile GPU dubbed the GeForce Go 7900 GTX. Installed in a new Dell XPS M1710 gaming notebook, this new mobile GPU is able to provide framerates that are on par with some of the fastest desktops money can buy. If you're into the thought of gaming on the run or a frequent LAN junky, NVIDIA's latest and greatest new GPU certainly warrants your attention. Since the Go 7900 GTX on the surface just seems like a refresh of the Go 7800 GTX, we weren't expecting substantial improvements in performance over the earlier release. But the fine tuning of the architecture,... Read more...
Hello HH fans. Today is the day NVIDIA chose to officially announce their new DX10-class GeForce 8600 GTS, GeForce 8600 GT, and the rest of the mainstream GeForce 8 family of products. We pulled together a few GeForce 8600 GTS and GT cards, tested them with some popular games and benchmark tools, and have posted our thoughts for all too see. click the link below to take look...Check out the new GeForce 8600 GTS and GT right here....

X-bit Labs sends word that ATI is preparing to provide OEM's with a new Radeon X1900 GT graphics card sku. Supposedly equipped with 36 pixel processors and 12 texture units, this card will not differ much from the 48 pixel pipeline R580 GPU used on the flagship Radeon X1900 XTX. In fact, the enthusiast community will be eager to see whether these "GT" sku's can be unlocked into fully-fledged "XTX" parts with minor modification. In the meantime, OEM's ans System Integrators will be the only ones to get their hands on these cards as ATI currently has no plans to bring this card to retail.... Read more...
If you're a 7800GT owner that's not ready to take the plunge and do a hardmod to raise the voltage on your video card, you can still raise it by using a simple BIOS update(softmod). NGOHQ has the file, and some forum discussion on the matter. "Not everybody knows how to perform a voltage mod. Today we're giving 7800GT users a small gift - this universal 7800GT BIOS image contains a small voltage mod of 0.1v in 3D mode, meaning you will be able to overclock your 7800GT even higher." Be really, really careful when doing this mod though. Most of the time, even just overclocking your card can void the warranty, not to mention actually changing the BIOS. The reward is a faster card, but... Read more...
