Hot on the heals of the official announcement of Intel's new dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 840 processor, we have more news for those interested in Intel platform solutions. Today, NVIDIA is finally taking the wraps off of their nForce chipset for the Intel platform, a chipset now known as the nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition. For months there was speculation that this chipset would be called the nForce 5, but because it offers essentially the same feature set as its AMD supporting counterpart, NVIDIA thought it best to keep this chipset in the nForce 4 family. The feature set of the NVIDIA nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition remains largely unchanged from other nForce 4 chipsets. However, since Intel's... Read more...
Good evening HotHardware fans! It's BW here, stopping by to let you all that we've just posted a Socket 939, NVIDIA nForce 4 SLI motherboard round-up, where we pit DFI's LANParty NF4 SLI-DR against MSI's K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI and Gigabyte's K8NXP-SLI.

Every so often a new technology, or a new piece of hardware, comes along that polarizes the PC enthusiast community. One such product is the recently released NVIDIA nForce 4 SLI chipset. The nForce 4 SLI chipset is the preferred platform for NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface technology, that gives users the ability to use a pair of GeForce 6x00 graphics cards in tandem for increased 3D rendering performance. NVIDIA's current SLI technology, not to be confused with the now extinct 3dfx's version of SLI (ScanLine Interleave), has shown much promise, but there is a large contingent in the enthusiast community that hasn't fully embraced NVIDIA's new SLI. Some claim it's not quite ready for prime... Read more...
Good morning folks. We've got some interesting news this morning, by way of NVIDIA. They have just announced their new nForce Professional MCPs that bring PCI Express, SLI, and a few other new technologies to AMD's Opteron platform. Dave and I spent some time talking with NVIDIA about the nForce Professional, and its various implementations, last week and we both came away impressed. Here's a snip from the official PR...

The news has been a bit sluggish this weekend, but today we have enough items to keep you busy for awhile :) As I look outside, the wind is blowing pretty hard and the tree right in front of my window is looking a little threatening... and hey! You know what it means for me when the wind blows? There's a 90% chance my internet connection will screw up... again. So before that happens, I've got to get posting ;) asetek 3.5" Bay HDD Cooler @ SystemCooling "The ever increasing weapon of choice in the enthusiast arena has been watercooling. It's allowed users to squeeze those extra MHz out of their CPU's and GPU's, but at the same time keep them cool, quiet and preserve their life expectancy.... Read more...
Good morning folks!  The news is flowing at a steady clip this morning, so I won't take up too much time with my usual banter.  ATi' is making news with the official announcement of a couple of new mobile GPUs, the X800 and X300.  I had a chance to play with both of them about a week ago in NYC, and we hope to have a review of them done sometime soon...

Seven hours later, five more news items ;) For you nForce chipset owners, there's a new driver version out(6.14 beta) for you to download... I'll be trying them myself after this post. Depending on how much news piles up, this could be the last post for tonight, so goodnight :) First Full-sized Illuminated Keyboard @ ExtremeMHz "Here at ExtremeMHz, we have had a few illuminated keyboards reviewed but all lacked two key features...full-sized keys and a standard layout. Since then, we have been looking around and waiting patiently for a company to put out a model that would meet these demands. Well, Logisys Computer has done just that with the release of their new Streamline keyboard. They... Read more...
Good evening friends, welcome back.  With all the sports talk today, I feel the need to round off the mix by touching on the most important sport of all, Hockey (I can already feel the heat from e-mails already).  With the NHL Blackout now peaking over the one month mark, this editor is getting tired of the Hockey Night in Canada feature being the Owners vs. Players.  Though I can see both sides of the argument, I sure hope an agreement is reached shortly so the pucks can start dropping.  Unfortunately, from the live chat which NHL commissioner Gary Bettman held a few days back, it looks like neither side wants to make the first step in beginning negotiations.  Personally,...

NVIDIA's ride as a chipset designer and manufacturer has been tumultuous in spots without question. The first two iterations of its nForce product family were immensely popular because they addressed weaknesses that plagued other chipsets, such as memory and integrated graphics performance. However, they are correspondingly more expensive than other chipsets and motherboards that centered on both nForce and nForce2 suffered repeated delays. As AMD transitioned to its eighth-generation processor architecture with an integrated memory controller, NVIDIA lost the one advantage that really differentiated its products with regard to performance. It subsequently dropped some of the other desktop-oriented... Read more...
Back in October of 2003, we had the opportunity to take a good look at several new Athlon 64 motherboards.  We had two high profile boards from ASUS and MSI that came packed to the gills with features, extras and a promise of high performance courtesy of VIA's K8T800 chipset.  A third, less prolific motherboard from Shuttle was a part of that round up, with just an above average feature set, yet promising top-end performance as well.  This board was powered by NVIDIA's flagship chipset for the Athlon 64 at the time, the NFORCE3 150.  Back then we walked away impressed with the performance of the NFORCE3, which ended up being a solid competitor for the VIA chipset.  However,...

Good evening folks!  The news has been coming in at a steady pace today, so I figured I'd pop in with a quick update before the in-box get's overloaded!  Here are some more of today's interesting happenings...  Alienware's Dual PCI-E Graphics System Uncovered @ PCPer.Com: "The first ALX system consumers will see will be based upon the new upcoming Intel platform. In an effort to ensure the ALX brand lives up to its name, Alienware will be overclocking every component within the system direct from the factory. Enthusiasts yearning to push the envelope can now sigh with relief as the envelope will be as far as possible while still being covered under warranty. Given how the... Read more...
Good afternoon HotHardware fans!  How is everyone doing today?  I take it you all took care of Mom yesterday, and spent some time with the family!  With my nephew's confirmation last Friday and Mother's Day this past Sunday, you know this guy spent some serious time around the dinner table this weekend!  I also put some quality time in with a SMOKIN' laptop powered by ATi's Mobility Radeon 9700 (review forthcoming!).  I'm not going to give away too many details though, you're just going to have to check back with us to see it for yourself.  For now, I have a healthy serving of hardware news to keep that jones of yours in check...  More NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400Gb:...

Being successful, especially in the computer hardware industry, is no easy task.  While some companies struggle to win over customers with just a smattering of products, NVIDIA's brand recognition almost seemed to guarantee them success on a regular basis.  What seems like not so long ago, the nForce2 Ultra chipset was taking the AMD Athlon XP motherboard market by storm and today it still remains the chipset of choice for those with an Athlon XP.  The nForce2 chipset offered it all in terms of connectivity, speed, and reliability - but it was released well over a year ago and NVIDIA feels it is time for some change. Today in the HotHardware labs we're going to take a look at the... Read more...
Good afternoon everyone;  Sorry about the lack of news yesterday, but my ISP was down *grumbles*.  Subsequently, we have quite a bit of news for you today.  So, in the interests of time, here is your weekend news...     Steelpad Wire Holder Review @ CreativeMods.com "Today I reviewed a product from Steelpad that is supposed to improve the gaming experience. What this particular product does is hold your mouse wire at an adjustable length to keeping it out of the way. I must say that this product works well, but it doesn't seem practical and it's too expensive. If you money to spend, or want to read up on the latest in high end gaming accessories, this review...

Good evening friends :)  I am packing it in early tonight; this cold is hitting my head pretty hard.  However, before I go pound back a bottle of Robitussin I have a shot of juice for you :) PCI Express Feature @ Neoseeker "We take a look at PCI Express today at Neoseeker and ponder what it brings to the table. As much as everyone in the PC world loves backward compatibility, PCI Express is going to quash that notion introducing both a new physical and underlying interface ushering out the now ubiquitous AGP slot. The classic PCI interface will also be nudged out albeit more slowly. The transition from AGP to PCI Express has a profound impact for the gaming segment especially as... Read more...
