Good evening friends, welcome back to HH.  In case you missed it, we just posted a review of MSI's latest drive, the XA52P CD-RW DVD-ROM Serial ATA Combo.  Coming bundled with three interchangeable face-plates and a Serial ATA interface, this drive surely hosts some unique features.  Click the link above to check it out...  Ultra PC4000 Dual Channel 1-GB Kit Review @ Sharky Extreme "This is still a niche market, but it definitely seems to be growing and becoming a very important and lucrative part of the computer market. Cost in one factor keeping the buyers in check, and these enthusiast-level DDR modules usually sell for significantly more than generic DDR. Higher performance,... Read more...
Good morning and happy Friday to all.  Today starts off Memorial Day weekend here in the states.  For starters that automatically means a three day weekend and a boatload of traffic on the highways.  It also is a sign that summer is rapidly approaching.  Traditionally this is a time of year where families get together, barbeque and enjoy some cold beverages.  But most of all, we take the time to remember the men and women who served this great country by giving their lives in battle.  Something we should never forget, especially today when we have troops doing their job in both Iraq and Afghanistan.  Here's you news...

Welcome back HotHardware fans!  Today's announcement by NVIDIA regarding their new MXM (Mobile PCI eXpress Module) initiative has generated quite a bit of interest.  So much interest that we were able to get a statement from ATi on the topic.  Here's a direct "cut-and-paste" from the correspondence...   •"Industry Standard Module" - while the concept is great, this is not what is being proposed. An industry standard module would be created through the creation of a working group comprised of OEMs, ODMs, graphics vendors, etc - an industry standard comes through collaboration - that is not what has been done here (ATI and others were never consulted),...

Good afternoon folks!  I apologize if I come across a bit somber today.   All of our regulars probably know that I'm a huge boxing fan, and that I especially like Roy Jones, Jr.  Well, last night Antonio Tarver landed a wicked left hand in the second round of their rematch, right on Roy's chin, to hand him the first "real" loss of his carrer (he has 1 other loss on his record that came via disqualification).  I started following Roy's carrer about 16 years ago when he got robbed at the Seoul Olympics, and over years developed the opinion that he is one of boxing's all-time greatest and most athletically gifted fighters.  To see him lose like he did last...

Good evening my friends :)  I am going to keep the banter to a minimum tonight due to family plans.  So, on with the show... NZXT Guardian ATX Case @ Controlled-Insanity PC Mods "There are so many "pre-mod" cases available today, that sometimes it's tough to find one that stands out from the rest. Recently, a very unique case arrived on my doorstep, and this one clearly stands out! Sent over by NZXT, this innovative new case is going to turn a lot of heads. NZXT is fairly new to the market, and the Guardian is their first product, so let's see what kind of impression it leaves!" Steelpad 4S @ HardwareHounds.com "Everyone has a mouse pad. Well, everyone with... Read more...
Welcome back my friends :)  Things around the Canadian portion of the HH lab have been a bit on the quiet side for the past few days due to my cold.  Thankfully, I awoke this morning feeling much better then I had over the weekend.  Needless to say, I have a bit of work that needs tending too ;)  However, before I head back to the test bench, here is a bit of news to help tie you over till the AM... Galaxy & Gainward GeForce FX 5900 XT's Review @ Beyond3D "Overall the pixel shader results highlight that the 5900XT cards are a better option than the 5700 Ultra for games which have shaders forming a large portion of the rendering workload. When one looks at all of the... Read more...
Good afternoon folks! I apologize for the lack of updates the last couple of days. We haven't forgotten about you; we've just got something urgent going on here at HotHardware that needs the attention of the whole staff. Here's some quick links to keep you busy for a while... The Motherboard BIOS Flashing Guide @ RojakPot: "Reputable motherboard manufacturers constantly improve on their motherboard BIOS and regularly release BIOS updates. These BIOS updates are important because they correct bugs and sometimes provide additional capabilities. Today, we will take a look at BIOS flashing for the motherboard. We will take an in-depth look at what the motherboard BIOS is, why it should be flashed... Read more...
The AOpen EZ65 & Biostar iDEQ 200T Shuttle Isn't the Only OEM Making SFF Systems... By, Marco Chiappetta December 16, 2003        With all of the buzz surrounding Shuttle's popular XPC line of small form factor systems, you'd think they were the only company producing these diminutive machines, which obviously is not the case.  Over the past year or so, virtually every major player in PC hardware has brought their version of the mini-PC to the market.  Some of them have been viable alternatives to the XPC product line-up, while others simply can't hold a candle to Shuttle's SFF systems.  Today on HotHardware.Com, we're going to take a close look at...

Microstar International's MS-6337 - i815E Pro Our second pass at the i815E and it gets better every time. By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 9/27/00   You probably have noticed...  Intel's latest motherboard chipset the i815E, has taken hold with virtually all of the major motherboard manufacturers as a major component in their mainstream and high end product offering.  Not long ago product offerings were a flood with boards based on the VIA Apollo Pro133A chipset.  However, now that Intel finally has their own PC133 ready product out the door, we knew it wouldn't be long before the Big "I" would permeate once again. The HotHardware labs have recently been inundated... Read more...
