Good morning HH fans and happy Friday to ya!  We've got a lot going on behind the scenes these days, with site upgrades, like the reader's ability to send us news, and a more rapid fire approach to the news with the addition of Matt to the mix.  We're also cranking things up as the holidays get closer, so keep you eyes open for that special gift for the hardware junkie in your life, you just might see it here on HH.  For now, let's take a look at some of the latest news bites this AM and we'll bring you more a little later on. Thermaltake Shark Case Review @ CoolTechZone: "Thermaltake's latest addition to the Xaser line is the Shark full tower aluminum case. Weighing in at... Read more...
Good morning gang, it's time for the morning news update at HH. It's been a hardware week that I would soon like to forget. I just wrapped up building my first HTPC, nothing crazy, just wanted to do it. Of course, nothing could go smoothly and it took close to a day to get things working right. Then, not a week goes by and the hard drive decides to die, so it's back to reinstalling. Thankfully the second time around went well and now things have settled down nicely. Along with lots of TV and moview watching, I got to catch the latest Red vs Blue on a full screen. If you haven't checked these guys out yet, you should. Pretty funny skits with a Halo theme.

In the past few months we've seen numerous announcements for PCI Express equipped core logic chipsets, and we have already evaluated a few of them as well.  We've previously looked at Intel's 900 Series of chipsets, NVIDIA's nForce 4 and ATi's RADEON XPRESS 200, and hope to get our hands on VIA's K8T890 and SiS' x56 chipsets very soon.  All of the major graphics chip makers have also been touting PCI Express support in their new GPUs.  In fact, ATi's and NVIDIA's newest graphics chips, the GeForce 6600 and Radeon X700, are native PCI Express parts, and have to be bridged in order to work with AGP.  After what may have been considered a slow roll-out, it seems like the move...

Over the last six weeks, three new chipsets for the AMD processor platform have been announced that all have one very important feature in common.  NVIDIA's nForce 4, VIA's K8T890, and ATi's RADEON XPRESS 200 all have support for the emerging PCI Express standard.  PCI Express, which was first brought to market with Intel's 900 series of chipsets back in June, is a serial point-to-point communications link for graphics and data, that offers much more bandwidth than AGP 8X and the aging parallel PCI bus.  For example, when compared to AGP 8X, which offers a peak bandwidth of 2.1GB/s, the new PCI Express X16 link used for graphics cards has almost four times the peak bandwidth, 8GB/s...

Good evening friends, NJ here with your nightcap.  I just walked through the door from work, so I am going to cut the banter short.  The smell of fresh pasta and garlic bread is just killing me ;)  Here is your news shot...  Sapphire X600 XT PCI Express Video Card Review @ AMD Zone "The advanced graphics port first showed up long ago after the bottlenecks of the PCI interface were reached by the first graphics cards to fully stress the memory bandwidth of the interface. At the time, there was a lot of hype but no real performance difference between the two but in time the superior AGP interface eventually showed it's worth and became the only interface available for graphics...

  With much anticipation and fanfare, the next generation in video card interface has arrived.  PCI Express, the successor to AGP, is now available on a number of Intel-based boards starting with the 900 series chipset.  VIA, SiS, and others are sure to follow in the coming months. It's still uncertain when the other OEM solutions will come out with PCI-E (not to be confused with PCI-X), but regardless of potential delays, PCI-E will be universal sooner than later. The potential benefits of PCI-E over AGP are dramatic, offering peak bandwidth of 4GBps (8GB concurrent), which more than doubles that of AGP 8X.  Initially, PCI-E appeared on the high-end of the scale with...

Good morning all! VIA is officially unveiling their latest chipset for the Athlon 64 / Opteron today, the K8T890.  The K8T890 sports all of the features of the popular K8T800 Pro, with the added benefits of PCI Express.  The "Pro" flavor of the K8T890 even offers dual PEG slots, for full support of dual PCI Express graphics cards.  We've got all of the main features outlined in our K8T890 spotlight.  Head on over and take a look.  ...

On August 12th, NVIDIA took the wraps off their new value-based PCI-Express video cards, introducing the GeForce 6600 and 6600 GT.  Back then we were given ample information in advance to do a thorough preview on what both cards brought to the game.  With a smaller die size, many of the same qualities of the 6800 series and even a few new features, like a native on chip PCIe core, NVIDIA's first GeForce 6 Series offerings into the mainstream PCI Express market seemed intriguing.   Up until now, NVIDIA's GeForce 6 Series PCI-Express solutions have been developed exclusively for their high-end cards, leaving the value class occuppied solely by ATI's X600 and various FX 5900s and...

With the release of both NVIDIA's 6800 Series and ATI's X800 series, the high-end enthusiast has several excellent choices when seeking the perfect gaming card.   It really is hard to go wrong either way, with each product line having the muscle to power any game you can throw at it, while offering the best image quality we've seen to date.  But the high-end market is only a small percentage of sales as these cards can cost in excess of $500.  When it comes to PCI Express based value solutions , ATI has their X600 series which sells in the $200 range, while NVIDIA has yet to launch many new value-based PCI Express offerings as of yet, electing to focus first on their high end products....

Good morning folks!  What a weekend!  The weather here in the big apple was fantastic, the Fourth of July fireworks were great, the BBQ was perfect and on top of it all, I got engaged!  Woo Hoo!  Here's a bit of the story and some pictures if you're interested in knowing how to incorporate some "smooth-geekiness" into a proposal!  :)  When you're done, head back here to though, we've got a ton of news for you...  ATI Radeon X800 XT (PCIe) Review @ Beyond3D: "Comparing R423 to R420 we see that all the main characteristics of the two chips - process, complexity, configuration - are identical and this is indeed the case. The only difference between... Read more...
Good Morning All, Intel lets fly with their new i925X and i915 chipsets today, along with a couple of LGA775 based P4's to go with them.  PCI Express, DDR2 and a host of other new goodies are on the bench at HotHardware.com. Have a look at all this new good stuff, right here!... Read more...
Hello again HotHardware Fans!  ATi is taking the wraps off of their PCI Express offerings today, and we've got some of the details posted for all to see.  We've got information regarding the PCI Express X800 XT, and the lesser known X600 and X300 product lines.  Click here to check them out... ATi's Official Press Release: ATI introduces top-to-bottom family of PCI Express graphics cards for consumer and commercial desktop systems: MARKHAM, ON, June 1, 2004 -ATI Technologies Inc.

ATI's new RADEON X-series... Read more...
Recently ATi spent time with us going over their soon to be launched PCI Express based offering of 3D Graphics cards.  Although we're unable to share performance metrics with you today, due to the current NDA embargo status of Intel's forthcoming i925X, i915G and i915P chipsets (and ATi's coordination of availability for that launch), we can show you a bit about these new products, as well as the introductory model flavors that ATi will be bringing to market later this month. If you recall, back in March we covered both ATi and NVIDIA's approach to PCI Express technology.  ATi took the high road offering native integration of a custom built 16 lane PCI Express core in their VPU strategy....
