Possible Doom for Mac OS X on x86 @ CoolTechZone "Apple's recent collaboration with Intel to use its microprocessors surged a great deal of interest throughout the industry. Though there are several arguments spanning the market currently, one thing is certain – Apple has stated it will not let users install Mac OS X on non-proprietary hardware, even though the CPU will fully comply with x86 architecture. The only apparent way for Apple to achieve that is... Read more...

Hey folks, how's it going? One tasty item on the menu tonight, is some overclocking results of a AMD 3200 with the Venice core, provided by PC Perspective. Yes... I need one of these :) Superpower XP03P Gaming Case Review @ XYZ Computing "If you have not heard of Superpower before, don't be embarrassed. Though they have been around since 1986 they are certainly not the most popular enclosure manufacturer on the market. In fact, if you are not careful you may just miss them completely. This review will be taking a look at their XP03 series case, their "Gamer PC Case". Let's see if Superpower is a name to remember or if it should stay under the radar for a few more years..."...

Good evening everyone, I'm here with more news from the tech world. I'd like to take this time and comment on a game I've recently bought... Resident Evil 4 for the Gamecube. I'll spare you any details, as multiple in depth reviews have already be published, but I will say that this game has brought life into the Resident Evil series in a way I didn't think was possible. From the graphics and sound, to the game play and level design, I've been totally blown away. If you own a Gamecube and are considering this game, consider no longer. Just buy it. Now, on with the news! Intel 915P Shootout: ABIT AG8 @ hardwarezone "The ABIT AG8 is the second board to be featured in our Intel 915P Express... Read more...
Good Afternoon HotHardware fans! Just in case you didn't see the link at the top of the page, I'm here to let you know that we've just posted a new article investigating the overclocking potential, thermals, and power consumption of AMD's .09 micron, Winchester core based Athlon 64 3500 processor. Our results were fairly interesting. Click here and see what we found out...... Read more...
When Intel released the first batch of Pentium 4 processors based on their Prescott core, which were built using a .09 micron manufacturing process, analysts found that the CPUs generated more heat and consumed more power than similarly clocked Pentium 4 processors based on the .13 micron Northwood core. These findings flew in the face of tradition, as a die shrink usually yielded processors that would run at higher clock speeds and consume less power. But the Prescott core wasn't a simple die-shrunk Northwood.  The Prescott architecture consists of millions of more transistors than Northwood and it has a deeper pipeline. The combination of building a new core on a relatively new and unproven... Read more...
Heh, snow and sleet yesterday, and now it's raining. I love New England :D I do have to head out in a few minutes though, so no time to chit chat. Check back later tonight to see what I've got for gaming news. Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse Review @ The Tech Zone "When I first heard of the MX1000 Laser my first thought was "I wonder if I could use it as a laser pointer?" The answer is no. All lasers conform to one of four classes, depending on usage and power. The MX1000 is a Class 1 laser device - extremely low-powered and can be stared directly into, even with a magnifying glass, for extended periods without causing any eye damage."

Good morning everyone.  I know you stopped by for your latest dose of news this AM, and it is a big one.  We had a slew of interesting articles sitting in our inbox covering the hardware spectrum, from memory, motherboards, P4 overclocking and a contest for some free memory too.  So pour yourself an extra large one, this is going to take a little time to get through.   FIC Condor SFF @ Viper Lair: "FIC put together a nice little barebone PC, but missed on some important features that enthusiasts have come to expect. While it's no slouch in gaming, it does not stand out in the performance department which is a shame as the design itself was well thought out. A change in... Read more...
Good morning HotHardware fans!  How are you all doing today?  I take it everyone had a good weekend?  Mine was pretty fun, I celebrated my 2 year anniversary with my fiance on Saturday, and on Sunday we went to a Jets game.  On top of that, I had some benchmarking to do, we had a Yankee game to watch, and I had to contribute to the never-ending trail of trash talking e-mails circulating between the guys.  It's fun having Dave up in Massachusetts, and a few of the other guys living in New York.  I swear, if you could read the e-mails between Mario and Dave you'd all have a good laugh...but we're a PG-Rated site...  AMD Athlon FX overclocking to 3Ghz: Creating...

Hey folks! It's Friday and most are getting set for a little R&R this weekend. Sadly, that will not be the case with most of the guys here at HH. We've got a lot of hardware to review and I myself have a piece slated for early next week that you're sure to like. So it's going to be busy for us, but that's what we're here for! Abit's AV8 motherboard @ The Tech Report: "With all the must-have integrated peripherals, a working AGP/PCI lock, a sub-$110 price tag, and a BIOS laden with tweaking and overclocking options, the AV8 has the potential to be the ultimate Athlon 64 overclocking platform. Let's see if it delivers. " Thermaltake TWV480 Total Watts Viewer Power Supply @ BigBruin.com:... Read more...
I know, I know.  It's Monday and I'm supposed to complain about how fast the weekend flew by, and that Monday's are the worst day of the week.  But I had about as full a weekend and anyone could have, and I was actually looking forward to getting back to work this morning!  First, we booked the reception hall and got our "Save the Date" magnets done.  I went out for a nice meal with the better half and got a few engagement gifts.  I also spent some time at the local computer show with Mario and to top it all off my sister went into labor and had her fourth son!  Nice, huh? :)  Needless to say,  I didn't have too much time to myself, so it felt...

Good afternoon HotHardware fans!  The purpose of this post is two-fold - First off, I wanted to make sure I was comfortable working in our spiffy new editor, and secondly, I wanted to post a few more links to some noteworthy items.  The news has been slowly trickeling in for the last few hours, so there isn't much to cover, but it'll be enough to keep you busy for a little while...  Thermaltake MobileFan 2 & 2 @ TheCrucible.ca: "Heat, seems that everything is getting hotter in the computer world.

The Asetek Vapochill and Abit CX6 An Adventure In Over-Clocking June 27, 2000 - By Dave Altavilla  Art form, hobby, addiction.... whatever you want to call it, Over-Clocking and the quest for every last MHz. that can be wrung out of a CPU, is beginning to become a national and global past time.  With each new Motherboard, CPU, Heat Sink or Over-Clocking tool, new plateaus of performance are being reached that were unattainable with standard equipment.  The "need for speed" has truly been the mother of invention.  Some extreme over-clocking setups begin in the lab and others still are conceived in a garage or basement.  In either case, the people behind the cause...

 Overclocking The GeForce4 Ti 4600 When fast isn't fast enough... By Dave Altavilla 3/3/02 What self respecting PC Enthusiast wouldn't take a brand new graphics card technology and push it to its limits?  Well, perhaps there are a few conservative types out there that would rather take the "in warranty" and stable path of stock clock speeds.  The HotHardware Team however, like many in our field, takes pride in exploring the outer limits of new hardware that hits our labs.  In this quick analysis, we plan to show you just what the GeForce4 Ti 4600 can do with a little help from the "coolbits" clock frequency control panel tab.  We didn't perform any...

The NVidia GeForce 2 MX Top End Performance At Bargain Basement Prices - And It Over-clocks too! By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 7/7/00   There is something strange about 3D Graphics Cards that brings out the "crazies" in people.  What amuses me the most is when people get into very emotional and heated discussions in our HotHardware Conference Room Forum.  It is as if people hold their video cards so close to their hearts, the damn things are like spouses or children to them.  While we personally don't understand this phenomenon here at HotHardware, one thing is for sure people get down right belligerent and opinionated about their 3D Graphics cards.  With...
