Someone caught Asus a little early for CES it seems and was able to snap a shot of a very innovative new product they'll have on display at the show.  Asus' new XG Station will allow any PCI Express compatible graphics card to plug into it and in turn will then provide an interface to an Asus-built notebook external graphics connector. "CES Unveiled - If you think your current notebook is rather wimpy when it comes to graphical power, fret not. Asus has heard the clarion call and decided to help those who want to play The Elder Scrolls - Oblivion in high resolution on the go by unveiling the Asus XG Station at CES. This device...

IBM, Intel Propose Innovative Extension To Popular PCI Express Computing Standard INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, San Francisco, Sept. 27, 2006 - IBM and Intel Corporation, with support from dozens of other companies, have developed a proposal to enhance PCI Express* technology to address the performance requirements of new usage models, such as visualization and extensible markup language (XML). The proposal, codenamed "Geneseo," outlines enhancements that will enable faster connectivity between the processor -- the computer's brain -- and application accelerators, and improve the range of design options for hardware developers. Applications that will benefit include visualization, such as complex weather... Read more...

The folks in the XtremeSystems forum have posted some images of the new ASUS P5W64 WS Pro workstation motherboard. The most unique aspect of this new board is the presence of four PCI-E x16 slots. Obviously, the first thing our readers will think of is coming up with a way to get two ATI "Master" cards and two standard cards and try for a Quad-Crossfire setup. Time will tell if drivers will allow this to function properly. However, in the meantime the gang is having a great time pushing the limits of the board and have managed to hit an impressive 472MHz FSB in their overclocking adventures. Although it might not be the ideal board for most, this unique motherboard will certainly be... Read more...
The Inquirer writes that ATi's upcoming Conroe chipset, codenamed RD600, will have no less than 3 PCIe 16X slots; 2 for CrossFire, 1 for Physics Acceleration. The RD600, tentatively named ATi Xpress 3200 Intel Edition, is obviously aimed at enthusiasts and is expected to debut later this year. It will sport a 1333Mhz front side bus, Dual Channel DDR2-1066 and automatic PCIe overclocking when certain ATi cards are detected. The word at the rumor mill is that it will be quite the overclocker too, thanks in part to a memory clock that is independent from the front side bus. "The RD600 chipset will support Conroe, Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs and it is expected in the next few... Read more...
If you've never had the pleasure of having a system good enough to enjoy games like Quake 4 and F.E.A.R. at decent quality settings, then you're really missing out on some great gaming experiences. A great experience doesn't always have to break your bank account though, and Madshrimps demonstrates that with their latest roundup of low to mid-range cards. From ATI's x1300 Pro to Nvidia's 7600GT, both companies have some great cards to choose from. "In this roundup we compare seven different video cards which don't cost you an arm and a leg. Using FRAPS and several popular games we test the performance and try to find... Read more...
The old crowd of PCI TV Tuners may need to step aside soon, as their PCIe cousins head into the market. Sure, there are still plenty of people without motherboards equipped with PCI Express expansion slots, but the old PCI bus is eventually on it's way out. Today we're going to take a look at PowerColor's PCI Express based Theatre 550 Pro TV Tuner. Other than the way the card interfaces with a system, there's little difference between the newer PCIe based tuners over PCI, so we'll be focusing on the PowerColor card's performance, ease of installation, setup, and bundled software. Speaking of software, some of you may recall our relative displeasure with CyberLink's PowerCinema 3 software in our... Read more...
Hey folks, it's pretty late but the news just doesn't stop :) It's not exactly computer hardware, but Nintendo has revealed their design for Revolution's controller. At first I was a little disappointed, but after thinking about how it could change the way games are played, I'm actually excited about it. There are only so many different genres you can invent, only so many different story lines you can write... really, there are only so many ideas. However, changing the way a game is played is something that hasn't really been attempted before, certainly not on this scale. It could be the next big thing, or it may just be a dud, but you have to give them credit for trying to bring something new... Read more...
After recently reviewing the Leadtek WinFast TV USB II Deluxe and Diamond's Xtreme TV PVR 550 Power Pack, there are certain things we've come to expect in PC TV tuners. For one, easy driver and software installation is important. And the bundled software and its functionality is a primary concern as well.  After all, what good is a TV Tuner without quality software to run it? And of course, the device's image quality has to be good. On the surface, MSI's Theatre 550 Pro seems like an appealing product, but as we all know it's how a product performs in the real world that counts. ATI's Theater 550 Pro chip, which is at the heart of the MSI card, has been used to power a few different TV Tuners.... Read more...

Intel's Dual-Core CPUs Examined on OCAU: "Smithfield (current stepping A0) is based on the Prescott 1M core with E0 stepping. This core is known for high overclocking potential. On the other hand, knowing that Smithfield consumes at least 15% more power and runs hotter than the already hot Prescott, we did not expect much when we started overclocking. The reality was a pleasant surprise." ASUS N6800Ultra PCI-e SLI @ Hardwareavenue.com: "Although the Geforce 7800GTX from Nvidia saw its official release mere days ago, it doesn't spell the end of the former generation, in fact it is arguably at this time that the former generation sees increased attention due to (usual) appropriate pricing...
