NVIDIA's Tegra is sure doing a good job at gaining respect in the industry. The company's HD Mobile Processor enables portable media devices to handle HD video and 3D graphics, feats that were deemed impossible for small gadgets just a few years back. Now, however, Tegra has already found a home in the high-profile Zune HD, and just in case you've got some beef with Microsoft, you'll also find it within Samsung's new M1. The M1 is a pretty darn sleek player, equipped with an AMOLED display, wireless technology, 3D graphics and a Flash-based user interface. Reportedly, the device can handle 720p HD video playback, and it's equipped with a dedicated audio processor, a GPU and two ARM cores. The... Read more...

Dell's XPS brand is instantly recognizable in computer hardware and gaming circles. Whether you've owned one or not, there is no debate that XPS branded machines, desktops and notebooks alike, are serious competitors in the high-end and ultra high-end performance markets.

It wasn't too long ago that the thought of a machine from Dell that could compete with the best boutique builders both in terms of style and performance would evoke blank stares.While the XPS brand has always stood for performance, it hasn't always been easy to tell. With early XPS systems, there was often... Read more...

Our friends over at PCPerspective have taken a Core 2 Duo T7400 "Merom" processor and installed it into a Dell XPS M1710 notebook.

  Gaming enthusiasts can certainly remember a time when the thought of fragging on a Dell system was somewhat comical. Granted, Dell built systems were solid and reliable and often came at an exceptionally good price. However, these systems lacked the aesthetics, upgradeability, and high-end hardware the gaming community craves. As a result, those gamers who opted to purchase a complete system rather than build their own often went elsewhere to the more boutique PC vendors such as Voodoo, Alienware, or Falcon Northwest. With the launch of the flagship XPS series of systems though, Dell has declared war on this collection of boutique gaming PC vendors. Throughout... Read more...

Over the course of the last few years, the PC industry has witnessed a major transition away from the world of traditional CRT monitors, towards products based on LCD displays. With the inception of LCD's, there was no denying the handful of advantages LCD's had over their CRT counterparts. Less eye-strain, significantly thinner depth and lighter weight, and improved brightness and contrast are a few of the more common salient features of LCD displays. However, the one Achilles' heel of this new display technology was gaming and general video performance. Here, slow response rates for the panels resulted in "ghosting" where fast-moving characters or scenes would leave "trails"... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that NVIDIA's recent final acquisition of ULI might be leading to some interesting scenarios in terms of chipset names. Here, sources have told DigiTimes that NVIDIA might be renaming either current or newly released chipsets to reflect the new ownership. In one example, the ULI M1697 was rumored to possibly be renamed the NVIDIA M1697 chipset. On the surface, this seems like a painfully bland naming convention. However, can you image the irony and marketing stress ATI would face if the M1575 southbridge used for most ATI-based motherboards was renamed the NVIDIA M1575? Without question, it would certainly be interesting to see both logos on the same motherboard box.... Read more...
Anandtech has taken a look at the latest and greatest new chipset from ULI for the AMD platform. With nearly all the features of the nForce4 chipset (its main competition) and solid performance to back up those features, the more economical ULI chipset could prove to actually be a great alternative to NVIDIA's chipset. That is, unless you had your heart set on SLI or Crossfire and had any hope of having solid support for it.ULi continues to build some of the most interesting chipsets that we have tested in the AMD market. Unfortunately for ULI, not many manufacturers have been willing to produce new boards with the new ULi chipsets. We understand that the M1697 will see the light of day from... Read more...
