In January of this year, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NVIDIA and Dell jointly unveiled an ultra high-end gaming system equipped with a pair of specialized graphics adapters that were each powered by a pair of GeForce 7800 GTX GPUs and 1GB of memory. The final configuration consisted of two "cards", four GPUs, and a total of 2GB of graphics memory.  NVIDIA dubbed the technology "Quad-SLI", and gave Dell an exclusive on the technology for a short period of time. At the time NVIDIA didn't announce any plans to bring Quad-SLI to retail, but we all knew the day would eventually come. While that day is not today (technically), NVIDIA is laying... Read more...

While browsing through the Yahoo Financial forums for ATI and NVIDIA, I stumbled across this interesting post. Here, someone claims that NVIDIA is currently working with Sony to develop a graphics card that features both an NVIDIA GPU as well as a Cell processor. Obviously, if this rumor has any substance to it the Cell processor would not have the same number of SPE's as the CELL in Playstation 3. Regardless, could this be a hint at a lucrative way of handling physics on the graphics card? Rumor is that Nvidia and Sony will make an integrated video card with a Cell processor and Nvidia graphics chip combined... Read more...
None other than Mike Magee himself has posted an interesting bit of news regarding the motherboard chipset market over at The Inquirer. Here, Mike had the opportunity to sit down with ATI's own Dave Orton and discuss where ATI would be in this market down the road. Apparently, ATI believes that only ATI and NVIDIA will be making motherboard chipsets in two years. Although Mike assumed Dave left Intel out as they are a given, Dave Orton makes a statement which certainly seems to indicate otherwise here with, "Only ATI and Nvidia should be in the IGP business,". Being a slow Monday morning, I'll jump start the rumor mill and toss out the idea of Intel conceding... Read more...

Being worthy of Hardware Zone's "Most Value For Money Award", the ECS C19-A SLI is an attractively priced SLI solution built on Nvidia's nForce4 SLI Chipset. It has some good features for a budget board. "Then the new Intel only nForce4 SLI XE chipset was announced, but introductions aren't really necessary because the nForce4 SLI XE is basically the nForce4 SLI Intel Edition with a few notable changes. Firstly, the chipset looses its ActiveArmor Secure Networking Engine (ActiveArmor Firewall feature is still available though) and the updated MCP now supports HD Audio. By removing an underused feature that is... Read more...

We've all been reading about NVIDIA's Quad-SLI technology for months, but performance data has been a little hard to come by.  The folks at Xbit Labs aim to change that though with this article that explores Quad-SLI performance with 10 games.  Unfortunately, the site seems to be going up and down at the moment. "When announcing the quad SLI technology at CES 2006, Nvidia Corp. stated that there are some gamers who desire to have extreme performance, quality and exclusivity, but did not begin shipping such products immediately. At CeBIT 2006 the company stated that the systems featuring four GPUs were shipping, even though not all system makers can supply such computers even... Read more...
Traditionally a key Fab strictly for ATI's GPU production, Digitimes reports that UMC supposedly has landed an order from NVIDIA to produce 90u GPU's. Although few details regarding the deal are known, this is surely a move on NVIDIA's part to assist in keeping costs down and ensure that there is always enough volume of chipsets in the channel. With TSMC, IBM, and now UMC producing NVIDIA's GPU's it seems as though the company is very well protected against any major shortage or yield issues thanks to the redundancy of their efforts. Hopefully, this means we'll be seeing more volume of parts in stores after they launch.... Read more...
The Inquirer reports that NVIDIA has just launched their first 1GB graphics card with the arrival of the new Quadro FX 5500. Based on the powerful G71 GPU, this new graphics card will be packed with a whopping 1GB of GDDR3 memory. For those who can't afford the high price of the 1GB model, there will be 512MB and 256MB variants which should be significantly cheaper. It seems that just when the industry was getting used to the idea of 512MB cards, the bar has been raised once again. Now the real question is how long until we see consumer-based gaming cards showing up with 1GB of memory? It will be a PCIe card and... Read more...
The folks at HKPEC have posted a great scoop on what seems to be an unknown upcoming GPU from NVIDIA. The GPU is dubbed "Tritium" which is defined as, "A rare radioactive hydrogen isotope with atomic mass 3 and half-life 12.5 years, prepared artificially for use as a tracer and as a constituent of hydrogen bombs." Unfortunately, the slide simply references this mystery "Tritium GPU" so we're not sure of any details. One thing is certain, the rumor mill is going to have a field day with this one.  ...
