Hey folks, it's hard to believe that the new year is upon us.  2004 has flown by in my opinion, with a lot of changes in my life occurring.  I hope 2005 will be a good one, with a few goals set, it could be.  I'm not big on the whole "resolution" thing, but there is that sense of a clean slate, starting fresh.  I have to say, I always get a bit of a chuckle this time of year when you suddenly start seeing more joggers than usual on the road.  I guess getting in shape is the most popular resolution out there.  Well, I'm running a little slow today, woke up with no coffee in the house.  So let's get the news going so I can go get my java!

To be honest, after watching the Patriots loose tonight, I'm at a loss for words. I do have to clap for Miami though, since it's amazing they still have that kind of fight left in them with their record. You can't win them all I guess. DFI Lanparty 875-T LGA 775 Motherboard @ hardCOREware "Enter DFI's Lanparty 875-T. It takes the latest CPU socket platform and mates it to the mature 875P chipset. It won't win any Gigabit Ethernet races, but you just wait and see how it performs with the tighter timings of DDR memory, and killer overclocking ability."

Hey gang, Jeff.B stopping in for a little more news bits for you. Having a busy day myself, so let's get down to business. ATI Rebuts Nvidia With Counter-Claims @ ChannelTimes.com: "Responding strongly, Suki Matharu, country manager, ATI India, said, "We can point out 100 flaws with Nvidia drivers and its cards. They cheat the consumers all the time. We can actually kill them as our products are far better." Five Large P4 Coolers @ OCAU: "CPU core temperatures were recorded by MBM. It's well known now that the reported on-die CPU temperature should be taken with a large grain of salt as it can vary from motherboard to motherboard. However for the purposes of our comparison...

Good afternoon folks!  Just in case you missed the new link at the top of the page, I'm here to let you know what we've just posted a fresh review of X-Micro's WLAN 11g Turbo Mode broadband router and its companion PCMCIA card.  Rob found this router to perform quite well, and thought it was very easy to install and configure.  Click here and check it out......

More and more homes these days contain multiple PCs, and in this age of increasingly common broadband connections it's a no-brainer to want to connect these machines together over a WLAN, or Wireless LAN.  Doing so will allow you to share files and the broadband connection so that everyone can surf the web smoothly.  For sometime now, users have been trucking along at 11 Mbps and 54 Mbps using 802.11b and 802.11g components such as routers, PCI cards, etc. But, as with everything else built into, installed on, or just connected to a PC, there's always room for improvement, and this usually means doing something faster.  That's what X-Micro intends to do with today's showcase...

Well it's 1AM right now, and my only mental functions consist of 'News' and 'Sleep', so I'll proceed in that order. Firingsquad has announced the final winner of their contest, so be sure to check out their site to see if it's you... after you check out our news of course :) Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 Motherboard Review @ PCStats "The new Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 motherboard is based on the VIA K8T800 Pro chipset, and with a sticker price of $135CDN is quite a steal next to the competition. Like most Athlon64 motherboards these days, the SL-K8TPro-939 is very nicely equipped with IEEE 1394, 7.1-channel audio, Gigabit Ethernet, a Promise PDC20579 SATA/IDE RAID controller and the always useful Port...

Finally, it's over. The Red Sox made history last night with their amazing march to, and through, the World Series. After sending the Yankees back home with a 4 game come back, they just kept on winning, shutting out the Cardinals in 4 games. I'm not a big baseball fan, but you have to respect that. These guys dug deep and did the unthinkable, over and over and over. There is some good Mojo hanging over Massachusetts lately, now it's the Patriots turn to keep the winning streak alive. Enough sports talk from me, here is your news for this AM! Raidmax Samurai ATX Gaming Case Review @ BigBruin.Com: "In essence what Raidmax did was to take a plain square case and screw plastic panels and shells... Read more...

Good afternoon folks.  We have to apologize for the delay in news this morning.  We had some gremlins acting up on the server earlier that gave us some unscheduled downtime.  But now we're back and we've got some good reading to get you through your day. LeadTek WinFast A400 Ultra/GT TDH 6800 Review @ Beyond3D: "At a glance, the only noticeable difference between the two boards is the additional Molex connector visible on the 6800 Ultra-based card - aside from that, both boards use the same, near-silent two slot cooling solution. Despite its 'monster cooling' look, the fan noise from these boards is indeed reasonably quiet, and certainly not noticeably loud over the rest of... Read more...
Good morning everyone. We've got a large line up of news treats for you today, so let's get right down to it... Seasonic PowerAngel Power Monitor @ Systemcooling: "Did you ever wonder how much power that computer sitting next to your desk is really using?

Razer Viper Optical Mouse @ Bjorn3D: "Like a knight looking for his best sword the gamer is also in search of tools to make him the greatest there is. You have the CPU, the monitor, keyboard, and the latest video card....but where is the mouse? Well, Razer may have yet another answer to that question with the Viper optical mouse.

Welcome back friends :)  As my fellow HH brother mentioned a few hours ago, the news is just pouring in today.  So, without further delay here is yet another shot of juice... ATI's Trilinear Filtering Chatlog @ Bjorn3D "As promised, ATI held a chat today with regards to Trilinear Filtering allegations. It was recently discovered that ATI has implemented a technique (something similar to NVIDIA's trilinear optimizations) that optimizes mipmap levels based on the next stage -- then applies proper filtering."

DFI LANParty NFII Ultra B vs. ABIT AN7 The Clash of the nForce2 Ultra's By: Tom Laverriere February 29, 2004       Fast, stable, feature-rich and affordable, these are just some of the words we have chosen historically, when speaking about NVIDIA's nForce2 chipset.  Over the past year we have seen quite a few of these motherboards come through the HotHardware labs and most lived up to our expectations surrounding this Athlon motherboard chipset technology.  When considering a motherboard sporting the nForce2 chipset, there usually isn't a lot to differentiate one manufacturer from another.  The same set of features such as Dual  Channel DDR memory...

The Sapphire Atlantis 9800XT Up Close and Personal with Sapphire's Radeon 9800 XT 256MB By, Marco Chiappetta December 30, 2003 In late September '03, ATi refreshed their fall line-up with the Radeon 9800 XT, knocking the then dominant Radeon 9800 Pro from its perch atop ATi's video card food chain.  We reviewed one of the first Radeon 9800 XTs to come out of ATi back then, and were thoroughly impressed with the card's performance and in-game image quality, but we did find the $500+ price tag a bit tough to swallow.  With this new XT branded card, ATi didn't pioneer many new features, but rather they refined their existing technology so it would run at higher clock speeds.  In doing...

  DFI LANParty nForce2 Ultra Looks and Performance That Can Kill By, Tom Laverriere September 1, 2003 Routine, to some people, is perfectly acceptable.  Knowing what's going to happen at certain times of the day, every single day, is what puts them at ease.  Others believe change is good.  They're always trying to find a way to do something different, better, or faster.  These are the people that like not knowing what to expect and, rather, just react to what happens and make spur-of-the-moment decisions.  Is either approach better than the other?  Not necessarily, it all depends on who you ask.  If you asked DFI, the motherboard manufacturer, what they...

Sapphire Radeon 9200 Atlantis 128MB Vivo/TV-Out With ATi's Catalyst 3.4 Drivers By - Tom Laverriere June 12, 2003 The graphics card industry is a vicious one.  The relentless six month product cycle means PC enthusiasts are out shopping twice a year for a video card upgrade.  At $400 a whack for the top performing cards, their wallets take a mighty blow.  Then there's the rest of us, who cannot afford the industry's leading graphics card or keep up with the ever changing hardware.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel though.  The industry's graphics leaders, ATI and NVIDIA, have been offering their latest GPUs in a mainstream form, at lower speed bins or by shaving...

  The "LAN Party" KT400A from DFI A Different Approach from DFI By: Jeff Bouton June 11th, 2003 There is a healthy rivalry brewing between AMD chipset manufacturers VIA and NVIDIA.  These companies have been competing for the top spot in the AMD chipset market for some time now.  When VIA introduced the KT400, NVIDIA stepped up with their nForce2 and have since won the hearts, and dollars, of many users.  Unfortunately for VIA, the KT400 simply could not compete with the performance of the nForce2.  So, motherboard makers seemed quite content adopting NVIDIA's newest chipset.  This in turn sent VIA back to the lab for some changes.  For anyone who...

Sapphire Technology Radeon 9700 Atlantis Pro A newcomer brings The Radeon 9700 To Market By -Dave Altavilla October 14, 2002   A complete unknown to the retail market, Sapphire Technology debuts here today, with their high end, ATi based entry into the 3D Graphics space.  We've seen many ATi built cards here in the HotHardware Labs and the design and quality has never fallen short of expectations.  Granted, we have not always been impressed with performance or driver stability but that is a thing of the past it seems, for the current 3D Graphics leader from the great white north.  Their flagship VPU (Video Processing Unit, as ATi has aptly named it), is currently king of the...
