  We recently had a chance to talk with representatives from NVIDIA regarding a new initiative they've spearheaded, with the goal of bringing a consistent graphics interface to PCI Express equipped notebooks.  Historically, the graphics processors used in laptops / notebooks have been impossible, or prohibitively expensive, to upgrade.  A few companies, like Alienware and Toshiba, have recently introduced upgradeable notebooks, but they each use different standards.  Alienware's parts can't be used in Toshiba's notebooks, and vice-versa.  The video cards used in desktop systems, however, can be easily upgraded because there is a consistent interface standard (i.e. AGP)...

A few more newsworthy items hit the inbox this afternoon, so I figured I'd take a break from laying out pages and taking pictures to serve up another dose of the good stuff...  BlueTake BT009M Bluetooth USB 2.0 Pen Drive Review @ Modtown: "The BlueTake BT009M Bluetooth USB 2.0 Pen Drive is a great all-in-one product, finished in a cool blue plastic shell. It brings together two very useful and two very mobile technologies together, making it ideal for the travelling business or home user and their laptop..."  Primecooler Hypercool II+ reviewed @ Hi-TechReviews.com: "Its design is similar to the Zalman 7000 series heat sink but in my opinion it had been improved upon....

Graphic Card Roundup A comparative look at what's out there now By Robert Maloney March 29th,  2004 Let's face it - we've all done it at least once in our lifetime.  We've all wanted to go out and put down this month's rent payment on a new all-powerful video card that can play our favorite games at mind-numbing speeds.  When some sense of sanity finally returns (usually after checking for non-existing space left on a credit card), we decide that maybe starting at the top isn't for everybody, and start looking for the next best option.  Obviously, most manufacturers are well aware of this, and for every "high-end" product they release there's also a mid-range and/or...

GeForce FX Go 5200 and 5600 Mobile GPUs NVIDIA's New Mobile FX Offering Unveiled By - Dave Altavilla March 13, 2003 The PC Graphics Industry certainly has been heating up over the past few weeks, to say the least. NVIDIA and ATi alone are making coverage, of their new technologies for the desktop alone, a full time job.  In addition however, coincident with Intel's "Centrino" Launch and Mobile/Wireless initiative, the Mobile Graphics space is bubbling and buzzing as well.  ATi gave us a taste of their new "M10" core, with an intimate demo of their Mobility  Radeon 9600.  In like fashion, very recently we were briefed on NVIDIA's new GeForce FX products...

  ATI 'M10' Mobile Graphics Preview Mobile Gaming Diversifies By, Chris Angelini March 13th, 2003 The computer industry has been in the doldrums as of late.  And as much as we want to deny it, business isn't picking up as quickly as the analysts forecasted.  It isn't voodoo, though.  There is no witchcraft involved in judging the future of the fair industry in which we work.  Look at the roadmaps - processors continue getting faster, core logic adapts in time, and we are continually treated to more I/O bandwidth.  But that's to be expected.  That is what we call evolution.  What the industry needs is something to reignite the excitement that was felt when...

The Matrox Parhelia 512 Matrox Re-Enters The 3D Graphics Ring - Big, Bad and Pretty By -Dave Altavilla May 14, 2002   We know you've been waiting for this, haven't you?  Of course you have.  Since the launch of the Matrox G450, we don't know of any hard core PC Hardware Enthusiast that hasn't been waiting for Matrox to step back up to the plate, with a new high end 3D Gaming Graphics card.  It was then that Matrox Graphics made a conscious decision to step back from the ridiculously competitive 3D Graphics scene and watch as giants fell.  Perhaps their next generation 3D Gaming chip was not ready for prime time or perhaps they just didn't want to duke it out in the down...

The Gigabyte GA-6CX and GA-MG400 i820 Motherboard and G400 Based Graphics Card - A package Deal The long awaited Intel i820 chipset has finally been released to the market.  What is somewhat surprising is the amount of time it is taking motherboard manufacturers to get boards designed and released based on this new chipset.  We all know Intel hasn't been exactly smooth with their transition to the new RAMBUS memory architecture that the i820 chipset utilizes.  Perhaps this is why there have obviously been a few hurdles to overcome with this new chipset. In any event, Gigabyte Technology is one of the first manufacturers to release a board, based on the i820, that supports...

Home Grown Networking and Modems from ActionTec Electronics https://www.actiontec.com   Not long ago, "Home Networking" was a segment of the PC and Peripheral Market that did not even exist. However along with the huge success of the Personal Computer and the Internet within the mainstream and "Family/SOHO" (Small Office/Home Office) space, came the Multi-PC Household. Soon, for today's average family, one PC was not enough. It was as if the "Great Telephone Line Battle" was raged again but this time on a different precious commodity, "Computer Time". Now instead of hogging the phone lines for voice calls, Teens are sucking up MHz. and bandwidth in the Chat Rooms and Web Pages of the Internet.... Read more...
