On an otherwise painfully slow morning in terms of exciting news, PureOverclock brings word of an absolute monster of a graphics card coming from the folks at Gainward. Following the trend of Gainward's GLH (Goes Like Hell) series of graphics cards, the company is preparing a GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB that will be unlike any other variant on the market. Throwing standard reference designs out the window, GLH-series cards are blessed with faster memory specifications and actually have faster memory IC's selected. These modules are then dropped onto a custom new PCB layout to provide the best overall performance and reliability. In short, the "standard' GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB we all know is clocked...

The Inquirer reports this morning that BFG's GeForce 7900 GTX 512 will be available for purchase on March 9th for an MSRP of $599. As we all likely remember, this is a full $50 less than the previous flagship MSRP of $649. Although the details of the card are still being speculated, there are a few guesses per usual with the gang at the Inquirer.... Read more...
We just got word from NVIDIA that some of their partners have begun shipping 512MB GeForce 7800 GTX cards to some popular on-line retailers again. Right after the launch, the initial batch of 512MB GTXs sold out incredibly quickly, and were nearly impossible to obtain for the last few weeks.  It seems like that's about to change though.  Don't believe me?  Check these out...     ...

As our good friend Scott over at Tech Report points out in his "TR Awards 2005", both ATi and NVIDIA have been more than capable of earning the infamous "meaty middle digit" award with product launches that equate to nothing more than science projects or noise-makers.  Evidence of this you ask?  Well the GeForce 7800 GTX 512 is scarcer than hen's teeth although NVIDIA launched it in November and the late December release of ATi' Radeon X1800 CrossFire still has yet to produce available stock in the retail channel. Hopefully ATi can react in short order, since clearly these versions of CrossFire products are much more competitive versus the X800 series solutions out... Read more...
While any brand of Nvidia's 7800GTX 512MB can hardly be considered "affordable" by many, the Galaxy GeForce 7800GTX 512MB might come as close to the term as possible. Sporting all the goodness of a 7800GTX 512MB, TweakTown explains why Galaxy's card is a decent buy."The Galaxy graphics card is a fantastic buy for people who just find that they cannot bring themselves to spend over $1000 AUD on a graphics card. There is no doubt that the 7800GTX 512MB is an expensive card and its all good and well ATI saying that the 512MB 7800GTX shouldn't be compared against their 512MB X1800XT but their TBA card." ...

It looks like by February, NVIDIA is going to lay the 7800GTX 512MB to rest according to CoolTechZone.com.  Quoting "Inside Sources", NVIDIA is planning to kill the 7800GTX 512MB to make room for the next big thing.  Look like they be shifting focus on the next product to compete with ATI's latest and greatest."Well, we've been hearing rumors about this for a while, but we finally heard it from the horse's mouth not too long ago. Recent conversations with insiders at NVIDIA have led us to believe that their top of the line card, the 7800GTX 512MB will be out of production sometime in Q1 next year, most likely somewhere around February '06."...

The gang at Beyond3D have taken a look at XFX's latest flagship offerings in a review of the company's GeForce 7800 GTX and GeForce 7800 GTX OC cards. With each card offering some exceptional performance and features albeit at slightly different prices, the review helps make the decision whether the extra money spent on the higher-clocked model is a worthwhile investment.Therefore one is left to forgo the faster (albeit fractionally so) model and recommend XFX's standard 7800 GTX as being the one to choose from this review. As an example of such card amongst the competition, it also remains recommended - one receives a high performance graphics card, well packaged with all of the necessary cables,... Read more...
The Inquirer has managed to get their hands on a new XFX GeForce 7800GTX 512MB graphics card and run it through their suite of benchmarks to see how fast vendors can push NVIDIA's latest flagship core. Armed with an impressive 580MHz core clock and memory running at an insane 1730MHz, it's no wonder Fudo is impressed with the card's performance. Overall, this is certainly an extremely fast and expensive card that warrants your attention if you can foot the bill.The XFX 7800 GTX clocked at 580 MHz core and 1730 MHz memory is by far the fastest card that we ever tested. We just think that you can not air cool this beast much more. At the same time Nvidia managed to have a very quiet card. It will... Read more...
Well folks, it's time for a release of all the 7800GTX 512MB reviews that have been piling up in our box.

With the release of Nvidia's new GeForce 7800GTX 512MB cards, there was bound to be some record breaking. VR-Zone has gone to great lengths to set a new 3DMark 05 record, using massive overclocks made possible by some hardcore cooling. We have done some overclocking tests on the new GeForce 7800GTX 512MB cards and we managed to hit 13400 on a single card with astonishing 810/2000MHz clock speeds. On the SLI front, we broke the mighty 18K barrier with a score of 18236. We put these cards under extreme cooling of below -90 degrees celcius with our cascade cooler. These cards were tested on the DFI LAN Party UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert.We're still waiting... Read more...
The launch of ATI's Radeon X1K family of graphics cards last month served multiple purposes. First, it allowed ATI to showcase their next-generation graphics hardware, well before the start of the holiday buying season. Something ATI needed to do after suffering from multiple delays. But it also served another purpose, one that wasn't quite so beneficial to ATI. The launch of ATI's Radeon X1K family of products also seems to have served as motivation to the folks at NVIDIA. Since the introduction of the Radeon X1K family of products, NVIDIA has released a series of new products, fleshing out various price points. Over the last couple of weeks, NVIDIA introduced the new, budget-priced GeForce... Read more...

Well folks, tomorrow we will get to see what ATI's "20 years of innovation" has evolved into with the new Radeon X1000 series cards. Will it be able to keep up with Nvidia's 7800 series cards? Will it be faster? Will it be available at launch? Will you even be able to afford one? If you ask me, I'd say maybe, maybe, let's hope so, and I certainly can't! It's not long now, so stay tuned! Weldbond Feature @ ThinkComputers.org "I have used Weldbond on all my mods in one way or another, as an adhesive, as a coloring, as a special effect. I belong to many forums and when I mentioned that I used Weldbond in my worklogs, I was very surprised to see that 99% of people have never heard... Read more...
In the past, notebooks and gaming were two mutually exclusive things. Granted, you could get away with some Solitaire or Pinball though that was just about the extent of any gaming for mobile users. Over the course of the last few years, we've witnessed the notebook industry go through some dramatic changes. Gaming-specific notebooks were introduced by boutique PC vendors such as VoodooPC and Alienware and offered a solid gaming experience using mainstream desktop GPUs and faster LCD screens to minimize any ghosting effect. Once Dell entered the picture with their XPS line of gaming notebooks, the world knew that the "gaming notebook" was more than a marketing buzz word and that it... Read more...
RaidMax X1 ATX Gaming Case @ Bigbruin.com: "Raidmax continues to impress by offering unique, high quality items at a reasonable price. The Raidmax X1 case is no different... The X1 isn't as flashy as some of the recent "gaming" cases, but does retain enough of the "gaming" case feel with the front LCD, hidden drive bays, and a beautiful side panel." MSI NX7800GTX SLI @ Viperlair: "While we have a lot of praise to bestow upon the MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E, there isn't much we can say that we haven't already done so for the 7800 GTX in general. It's fast, occupies one slot, and with it, you can really crank up the image quality settings without sacrificing performance.... Read more...
Shimmer me timbers, they're at it again. Most of you should remember the texture shimmering problem with Nvidia's recent 77.77 drivers, which Nvidia claimed to be a bug and quickly fixed the problem. Now it's ATI's turn to address the issue since it also seems to suffer from a similar problem. As usual, we'll keep you updated on any new driver changes. Ahanix MCE 601 HTPC Case @ HTPCnews "Some HTPC enthusiasts are videophiles, some audiophiles, some are even organization addicts but the common denominator among ALL HTPC enthusiasts is that we all want, nay we demand, a high quality, silent, cheap, custom case with a universal IF/RF remote, a VFD, and it must have optional components that...

Football season is back! Tonight, the New England Patriots squared off against the Oakland Raiders in Foxboro stadium, kicking off the 2005 season. If you didn't get a chance to watch the game, you missed out. The first half was pretty close, with both teams getting to the end zone and making some excellent plays. But as in usual Patriots fashion, the second half belonged to the home team. The Raiders were plagued by penalties, and the Patriots took advantage of that. Combine that with some great defense, they were able suppress Oakland and claim the 30-20 victory. Now enough of that, time for the tech...

Following up on yesterday's Nvidia optimization story, Nvidia has delivered a response. According to them, there's no shady business going on, and the whole thing can be attributed to a bug within the drivers. They say a new beta driver(78.03) has already been released to reviewers, and will be released on nZone once it receives feedback on the driver. Phew! All right folks, I don't know how much longer I'm going to have power for, this storm is about ready to snap some trees. Enjoy the news!

We have the world's first full review and showcase of Asus' new "Extreme N7800GTX Top" Graphics card for you today.  This card comes equipped with a great cooling solution that exhausts warm air from the card outside of the system chassis and allows for much lower temps under pressure at the card level and even for the entire system.  We should also mention that since it's based on the new GeForce 7800GTX, it's killer fast... Right then, it's killer fast.  So we tested a pair of them in an SLI setup as well! Go see...... Read more...
When NVIDIA launched the GeForce 7800GTX back in June, most of the retail cards we saw were cookie-cutter replicas of each other, at least physically.  About the only things that differentiated one card from another were various clock speed tweaks depending on the manufacturer or the software and game bundles that were included.  Regardless, with the design elegance that the reference GeForce 7800 GTX offers, we were certain it wouldn't be long before the various AIBs brought out their own customized variations on the product. Although its PCB design is still very much a stock GeForce 7800GTX layout, the ASUS Extreme N7800GTX Top is the first retail board we've seen that incorporates... Read more...
