Hello Everyone.  What do you get when you cross a 2.16GHz Core Duo T2600 processor, with 2GB of RAM, a GeForce Go 7900 GTX, and a 17" WUXGA display?  Well, you end up with Dell's new XPS M1710 notebook! We took Dell's latest flagship gaming notebook for a spin and have posted our thoughts on this mobile powerhouse right here.   To whet your appetite, here's an interesting quote from the article, "By far, the most interesting and mysterious aspect of the Dell XPS M1710 are the options regarding the graphics behavior of the system. Here, the user is given the option of using either the integrated GeForce Go 7900 GTX GPU found within the system or the extremely interesting... Read more...
  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...

Today we've got a look at a sharp new LCD from Asus that clocks in with a blistering fast 3ms pixel response time. Have a look but don't blink, you might miss it!   ... 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...
Hey! I think my internet is working now. You know what that means? More news for you! Anyway, for your nightly news fix, we've a got Home Theater article from eCoustics, Logisys UV Reactive Molex Sleeve Kit from LAN Addict, and as usual... a little more. After this i'm going straight to bed, so goodnight! Home Theater Article @ eCoustics.com "Instructions on getting good bass from a subwoofer in any given room usually begin by suggesting corner placement of the subwoofer. And it's true: placing the subwoofer in a corner will equally energize all the room's resonances and maximize the subwoofer's output. However, one of the more bizarre aspects of how subwoofers couple with the specific dimensions... Read more...
  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...

Soyo's SY-7VMA - PM133 Socket 370 Motherboard The i815 should be nervous... By, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta 12/7/00 Competition.  It seams like that is one of the first words to come to mind when discussing the current PC hardware scene.  When you think of video, the competition between 3dfx and nVidia always comes up. Think of processors and immediately an Intel versus AMD debate breaks out.  Well folks, the bickering is about to get worse! It seems like we may have another topic to discuss, motherboard chipsets.  For years, Intel was the dominant force in the chipset arena.  AMD and Intel also had a much better relationship; in fact AMD actually manufactured...
