Good evening folks!  Thankfully, I have completely recovered from this weekend's festivities (my girl threw me an awesome surprise party for my birthday), and decided to stop in for a quick shot of news.  Most of the action today was dominated by NVIDIA's SLI announcement and Intel's Nacona news, but there were some other goodies posted as well.  Here's goes...  Dell Inspiron XPS Notebook Review @ Hard|OCP: "The Dell Inspiron XPS brings forth a level of game playability that allows you the power to easily head off to any LAN game and compete, or to enjoy the latest 3D adventure in the privacy of your home. And then without issue, you can use it for those daily computing... Read more...
Good Morning HH Fans! Today, NVIDIA is unveiling an updated version of 3dfx's SLI technology, but this time around, dual PCI Express X16 slots and two NV4x powered graphics cards will be handling the graphics workload. NVIDIA is claiming huge performance gains with the setup. Click here, or on the link at the top of the page, to take a look at what they have in store for us in the coming months...

Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we?  Where were you in 1999?  If you were into the technology scene, especially personal computing, most likely you were scampering about like Chicken Little, wondering what you would do when the sky fell at the end of the year, as the clocks ticked over to the year 2000. The Y2K support and compliance industry was in full bloom, as we all thought our computers, mainframes and networks would somehow spontaneously combust due to the fact that our BIOS firmware, operating systems and application software couldn't handle the roll-over into the new millennium.  In addition to worrying about your soon too be possessed PC, if you were an...

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 morning HotHardware fans!  Just in case you missed it, we've just posted a short article outlining some of the features and benefits of NVIDIA's newly announced MXM, or Mobile PCI eXpress Module.  Click here, or check out the cool picture at the top of the page for details.  In other news...  NVIDIA and Ten Leading Notebook Manufacturers Launch Consistent Graphics Interface for PCI Express Notebooks: SANTA CLARA, CA—MAY 17, 2004—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, along with the world's leading notebook ODMs, today announced a consistent graphics interface for PCI Express based notebook PCs. The Mobile PCI-Express... Read more...
  We recently had a chance to talk with representatives from NVIDIA regarding a new initiative they've spearheaded, with the goal of bringing a consistent graphics interface to PCI Express equipped notebooks.  Historically, the graphics processors used in laptops / notebooks have been impossible, or prohibitively expensive, to upgrade.  A few companies, like Alienware and Toshiba, have recently introduced upgradeable notebooks, but they each use different standards.  Alienware's parts can't be used in Toshiba's notebooks, and vice-versa.  The video cards used in desktop systems, however, can be easily upgraded because there is a consistent interface standard (i.e. AGP)...

Good morning folks!  We've just posted a preview of NVIDIA's new nForce2 Ultra 400Gb chipset for the Athlon XP.  This new chipset sports all of the features of the very popular nForce2 Ultra 400, along with Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, RAID and it even has a built-in hardware optimized firewall.  Click the link and check it out......

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 HotHardware fans!  How are you all doing today?  I take it your weekends were good!  We've been getting some nagging rain for the past few days here in New York, but other than that things are going well for the HH crew (at least those of us based in the northeast!).  Rob is back from his Honeymoon, Jeff is just about ready to jump in the Ryder truck and move to North Carolina, and Dave, Tom, Jay and I are all cranking along with some new hardware.  Expect some new articles from us real soon.  For now though, let's see what's been going on around the web...  TR interviews NVIDIA's Tony Tamasi: "AS NVIDIA'S VICE PRESIDENT OF Technical Marketing,...

Hello all... I'm sure a few of you have found a few miscellaneous issues with the site here and there.  This is all part of the deal unfortunately.  The move of our static html site to a database driven engine and importing all our content in the process, is an enormous undertaking, as I'm sure you can imagine.  We currently have a few problems with getting the articles categorized in all the right places, a few broken links etc, small nagging stuff like that.   So as the saying goes, "pardon our appearance" during our renovations, we hope to have everything spiffed up real soon.  Please feel free to send me a note, if there is something that is particularly...

The GeForce 6800 Ultra NVIDIA's NV40 Debuts... By, Marco Chiappetta April 14, 2004 NVIDIA is poised to fire the first shot in the next battle of the war for 3D supremacy with today's official unveiling of their new NV40 GPU.  The past two years have been especially hard fought.  Both NVIDIA and ATI have been introducing new products every few months in their continuing effort to "one-up" the other in the eyes of influential enthusiasts, casual gamers, and budget conscious consumers looking for the best return on their investment.  We've seen a myriad of new high-end, mid-range, and budget GPUs from...

Graphic Card Roundup A comparative look at what's out there now By Robert Maloney March 29th,  2004 Let's face it - we've all done it at least once in our lifetime.  We've all wanted to go out and put down this month's rent payment on a new all-powerful video card that can play our favorite games at mind-numbing speeds.  When some sense of sanity finally returns (usually after checking for non-existing space left on a credit card), we decide that maybe starting at the top isn't for everybody, and start looking for the next best option.  Obviously, most manufacturers are well aware of this, and for every "high-end" product they release there's also a mid-range and/or...

Sneak Peek:  NVIDIA's GeForce FX 5700 Ultra with GDDR3 RAM By, Marco Chiappetta March 24, 2004 Monday, March 22, 2004: Good afternoon folks! An interesting package just landed in the lab, that we thought you'd like to take a look at. At first glance, the card below looks like an ordinary GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, but upon closer inspection one major difference is revealed... NVIDIA GEFORCE FX 5700 ULTRA WITH GDD3 MEMORY Unlike the GeForce FX 5700 Ultras available at retail, this particular card is equipped with Samsung GDDR3 memory. Most of you have probably heard that next generation parts from NVIDIA will use GDDR3 memory, and while we can't say anything for certain at the... Read more...
NVIDIA ForceWare 55 Hands-On New Features for Enthusiasts By: Chris Angelini February 18, 2004 It used to be that graphics manufacturers dedicated themselves to incorporating nifty features into their hardware, besting the competition from a specification point of view, at the very least.  Developer resources limit the usefulness of these proprietary tricks, though.  And as such, coding for one manufacturer's unique feature set over another's only exacerbates the time-consuming process of bringing a modern game to market.  Microsoft?s DirectX 9 API simplifies the process by proposing a minimum set of specifications for hardware manufacturers to support.  Software developers,...
