With the release of Nvidia's new GeForce 7800GTX 512MB cards, there was bound to be some record breaking. VR-Zone has gone to great lengths to set a new 3DMark 05 record, using massive overclocks made possible by some hardcore cooling. We have done some overclocking tests on the new GeForce 7800GTX 512MB cards and we managed to hit 13400 on a single card with astonishing 810/2000MHz clock speeds. On the SLI front, we broke the mighty 18K barrier with a score of 18236. We put these cards under extreme cooling of below -90 degrees celcius with our cascade cooler. These cards were tested on the DFI LAN Party UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert.We're still waiting... Read more...
The launch of ATI's Radeon X1K family of graphics cards last month served multiple purposes. First, it allowed ATI to showcase their next-generation graphics hardware, well before the start of the holiday buying season. Something ATI needed to do after suffering from multiple delays. But it also served another purpose, one that wasn't quite so beneficial to ATI. The launch of ATI's Radeon X1K family of products also seems to have served as motivation to the folks at NVIDIA. Since the introduction of the Radeon X1K family of products, NVIDIA has released a series of new products, fleshing out various price points. Over the last couple of weeks, NVIDIA introduced the new, budget-priced GeForce... Read more...

The mainstream video card market is about to get a shot in the arm courtesy of the folks at NVIDIA. Today the company is officially unveiling a new addition to their popular GeForce 6 Series of products, the GeForce 6800 GS. The GeForce 6800 GS is a new 12-pipeline, mainstream product, that promises relatively high-performance at a much more affordable price than the flagship products of today. We were recently given the opportunity to evaluate the new GeForce 6800 GS, so armed with a few other mainstream video cards, some that are currently available (Radeon X800 XL & GeForce 6800 GT) and one that is not available just yet (Radeon X1600 XT), we decided to see how NVIDIA's new product stacked...

In the past, notebooks and gaming were two mutually exclusive things. Granted, you could get away with some Solitaire or Pinball though that was just about the extent of any gaming for mobile users. Over the course of the last few years, we've witnessed the notebook industry go through some dramatic changes. Gaming-specific notebooks were introduced by boutique PC vendors such as VoodooPC and Alienware and offered a solid gaming experience using mainstream desktop GPUs and faster LCD screens to minimize any ghosting effect. Once Dell entered the picture with their XPS line of gaming notebooks, the world knew that the "gaming notebook" was more than a marketing buzz word and that it... Read more...
Hawking Technologies HBB1 Broadband Booster Review @ Hardware-Review.net: "Getting every ounce out of your broadband bandwidth can be a daunting task and one many users deal with on a daily basis. Many people who use a Voice-Over-IP phone service or play online games experience some distortion or lower quality connections because of how their data packets are being prioritized, sent, and received. All of these programs take valuable bandwidth and leave each fighting for their place in line. To help broadband routers with this problem, Hawking Technologies has developed the unique HBB1 Broadband Booster, which is the subject of our review today."

It's been only about seven weeks since the GeForce 7800 GTX was officially launched on June 22, but NVIDIA is already making news yet again today with the latest addition to their GeForce 7 Series of cards, the new GeForce 7800 GT. As its name implies, the GeForce 7800 GT is very similar to NVIDIA's current flagship GeForce 7800 GTX, but the GT is launching with a significantly lower MSRP for a couple of reasons. Both cards are based on the GPU formerly codenamed "G70", however, the GeForce 7800 GT has four less pixel pipelines and is missing one vertex unit when compared to the GTX version. The new GeForce 7800 GT's reference specifications also call for lower core and memory clock... Read more...

Back in April of last year, NVIDIA released the GeForce 6800 Ultra and began to rebuild a reputation that had been tarnished by a couple of products that didn't quite live up to the expectations of many hard-core gamers. The GeForce 6800 Ultra, unlike the GeForce FX line of products that came before it, had more features than competing high-end products from ATI, and its performance was far superior than anything ATI had available at the initial time of launch. Soon after the release of the GeForce 6800 Ultra, though, ATI brought its Radeon X800 Series of cards to market and closed the performance gap, but NVIDIA's flagship still was considered more feature-rich, with full Pixel Shader 3.0 support. ...

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...
