Hey there gang, welcome back!  Man, it has just been one of those stretches where nothing seems to be going right for me.  The last few weeks I've been dealing with an ailing pet, who is looking much better thankfully.  Now my neck has decided to give me a lesson in pain, to the point that I am looking at the world with a bit of a tilt.  I sure hope this goes away soon.  I kind of feel like Ed Sullivan right now.  So I guess I will be popping the Doan's Back Pills and hope for some relief.  While this did stop me in my tracks yesterday, it isn't stopping me from getting the news out to you!  Here's your latest dose for today...

Good afternoon folks!  How are you all doing today?  The crew here at HH all seem to be doing well, although we have been unusually busy as of late.  There just seems to be a neverending stream of product announcements / launches recently.  But that's good news, right?  :)  That's what keep us all going here on HotHardware! Oh man, we just can't wait to tell you all about what's coming in the next few weeks...

Good evening friends, I am glad to see you are back :)  With most of the crew enjoying the tail-end of the long weekend, things around the lab have been fairly quiet today.  Nonetheless, there is always a balance of work and pleasure around here.  Speaking of which, it is time for this News Jockey here to finish up his duties for the day.  Here is your evening nightcap...  HEXUS.net @ ECTS 2004: First Time Perspective "With Gamestars Live down at ExCeL, ECTS was stripped down enough to leave only the people that needed and wanted to be there, with everyone else enjoying the fun and games at EDF and Gamestars. It's that that made ECTS a lot more enjoyable for the... Read more...
Good morning all.  It looks like my desktop troubles are over.  Man, it has been a long time since I've had problems with any of my machines and I hope this is the last of it for a while.  There's nothing like a reformat once in a while to clean things up, but I was try to hold out for SP-2.  Guess that wasn't in the cards.  Anyhow, now I can get back to being productive on the review and news fronts.  Speaking of news... The First Xeon EM64T (Nocona) Workstation/Server Solutions Now Available from Supermicro San Jose, CA, July 15, 2004 – Supermicro Computer, Inc. has begun high-volume production of its new workstation/server platforms which support the latest...

Good morning everyone. JeffB checking in to ring in the new weekend. Since I've started working from home, weekends have a lot less meaning than they used to, but I still look forward to them. If all goes well I will be snuggling up with a new piece of hardware this afternoon. Otherwise I think I will be getting out. Thanks to my latest addiction, Far Cry, I haven't gotten out much in the last couple of weeks. I really hate games that don't have in-game saves, but I will say that Far Cry is an exception. If you haven't checked it out, you should, it's one of the best I've ever played. Just be aware, this bad boy stresses even the most powerful systems to the brink of reboots. Little secret, turn...

Good morning all.  It looks like we've got a fair amount of news for you this morning, with a number of sites hard at work on some interesting reading.  We've been pretty busy this week as well, with some nice treats on tap for you.  I've also been toying with the idea of writing a few guides for our newbie friends, to help them with the various facets of building and using their rig.  What I'd like is some feedback from our readers letting me know what you would find most helpful.  So if there is something you would like covered, please drop a quick line and let me know!

Good morning, is everyone doing okay?  I sure hope so!  Unfortunately, I was unable to jump on the editor yesterday due to Fathers Day celebrations with two sets of families.  But, I would like to take this time to personally wish all the Dad's out there a belated Happy Fathers Day.  With a few of HH's very own sporting crumb-snatchers, and maybe a few in the not so distant future (going to get beat for that), I surely know the compassion that these guys put forth year round.  Davo for example.  Besides running the show around here, he has an intensive day job.  *Shakes Head* I don't know how that boy can work two jobs, take TKD, coach a team and still...

Good Morning All, Intel lets fly with their new i925X and i915 chipsets today, along with a couple of LGA775 based P4's to go with them.  PCI Express, DDR2 and a host of other new goodies are on the bench at HotHardware.com. Have a look at all this new good stuff, right here!... Read more...
Major product launches don't seem to be getting any easier these days, at least on our side of the fence here in the online media community.  Competition is fiercer than ever in all of the major functional blocks for personal computing, whether it's Graphics, Platform Chipsets, Drive technology or Processors.  It almost seems like major OEMs are driving too hard in an effort to trump the competition.  On the other hand, high tech, as we all know, is a very unforgiving battleground.  And so, it is with cramped weary fingers and bloodshot tired eyes, that we bring you this showcase of Intel's major platform launch centered around their new Alderwood and Grantsdale chipsets. ...

Good morning friends, how are we doing this AM?  My world was fairly mundane last night; I just kicked back with some tunes and a good book.  However, judging by the amount of news in my in-box it looks like others were quite busy... Logisys Computer SP 6000 "Alien" Speakers @ System Cooling "As the home computer market has expanded, the role of audio has come to the forefront for a lot of computer users. Games are becoming more sonically sophisticated, and many people use their systems for watching DVD's or listening to music via CD or digital formats such as MP3. Soundcards, as well as audio solutions built into many of today's motherboards, keep getting better and... Read more...
Good evening friends :)  I just finished watching the Unreal 2004 Tech-Demo video.... Oh My...  Now that is a drool worthy movie.  It is a bit large, but seeing what they are able to do with PS 2.0 and 3.0 in the new Engine is well worth the download.  I think Unreal 2004 is going to give the Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 a good run for their money... Intel 915 chipset Technology Preview @ T-Break "The new Intel 915 ICH6 chipset supporting the upcoming Socket 755 is scheduled to debut in about a month's time. Some information about this chipset has been making rounds on the Internet, like the lack of an AGP interface and Win 9X drivers. Today, we try to put together different... Read more...

Good morning all.  Well, the trek is finally over and I am now a resident of North Carolina.  It definitely isn't like New York.  Things are cheaper, slower and much warmer.  We are looking at a heatwave for our first week here, topping 90 !  This will take some getting used to, but I think it was a good move.  I got up a little early today and started poking around the web for the latest happenings.  We've got some good bits for you, some hot off the presses.  Get to it! The Tech Report has a write up on VIA's K8T800 Pro chipset, Primed for Socket 939: "For everyday operation at stock clock speeds, this new clocking scheme doesn't mean much. However,... Read more...
Good morning friends, welcome back to HH.  Today I took a sick-day in hopes of kicking this flu that has been hanging around for the past while.  *shakes head* I don't understand my immune system; I will be fine all winter but as soon as summer comes, BAMN, I get sick.  Maybe my body is so used to the soothing radiation that emanates from my CRT monitor that it is starting to reject natural sunlight.  Nevertheless, a solid day of coffee, music and benchmarks should do my body good ;) PRESS RELEASE- Serial ATA Milestones Achieved With Two Completed Specs Signaling Speed Doubled to 3Gbps, New Cable and Connector Solutions Defined   INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, Barcelona, Spain,...

Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz "Prescott" And Pentium 4 3.4GHz "Northwood" By, Dave Altavilla March 22, 2004 Last week AMD launched their latest "enthusiast" class processor, with the unveiling of the Athlon 64 FX-53.  Today, Intel returns the volley with the launch of two 3.4GHz Pentium 4 CPUs based on their Prescott and Northwood cores.  In our FX-53 piece, it was obvious that Intel has some catch-up work on their hands, as AMD's new flagship defiantly manhandled even the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition in more than a few instances of our benchmark suite.  What was perhaps more impressive was the way the FX-53 took the lead position, while maintaining a tepid...

Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz Prescott And Pentium 4 3.4GHz  Extreme Edition Significant changes in P4 architecture bring future scalability By, Dave Altavilla February 1, 2004 During the course of the year in 2003, AMD and Intel were engaged in a rigorous competition of raw MHz versus IPC (instructions per clock cycle) marketing.  While Intel had taken the road of brute force computing, with the Pentium 4's "Hyper-Pipeline" architecture, AMD was still selling on performance metrics not directly tied to clock speeds.  A 2.2GHz Athlon CPU chiming in with a "3200+" branding is at first glance, a tough sell.  However, the benchmarks and leading indicators in performance...

The Springdale Showdown Which board should you "spring" for? Brought to you by Robert Maloney July 10, 2003           This is the kind of article that PC Hardware Tech Editors live for, not only a simple one-on-one comparison, but a full-blown, knock-em-down, street fight for bragging rights.  Actually, we think round-ups like this are similar to a beauty pageant.  Sure, there's plenty of good-lookers on the stage, but which of them has that special something which will distinguish them from the rest?  Bikini jokes aside, it's what separates the stellar candidates from the mundane, that really makes for an interesting showcase,...

  Intel's Pentium 4 3GHz With 800MHz System Bus And The i875P "Canterwood" Chipset More bandwidth and leading edge desktop technology for the P4 By, Dave Altavilla and Chris Angelini April 14, 2003   Time certainly does fly when you are clipping along at 3GHz, doesn't it?  It has been a whole 5 months since Intel released their last processor speed bump.  Intel actually let this one ride a little bit it seems.  In early February, AMD let loose with their new "Barton" core based Athlon XP 3000+ (2.166GHz), in an effort to keep pace with Intel's brute force approach to processing.  Don't misunderstand us, there certainly is nothing wrong with "brute...
