We continue to bring you breaking coverage from IDF today with a look inside keynote talks from Gordon Moore and Pat Gelsinger. Snip:  “Pat next focused on Intel’s current and future I/O innovations.  He talked about the Tulapi SOC (System on a Chip) accelerator and then spoke of USB 3.0.  According to Pat, USB 3.0 will offer a 10X increase in performance over USB 2.0 and will use both copper and optical interconnects.  He also held up a couple of prototype USB 3.0 cables to show the room what they looked like.”   - Direct Link...

Charlie from The Inquirer has been lurking behind closed doors at IDF in Bejing and stumbled upon a couple of HP workstations with interesting GPU configurations. One machine had a pair of NVIDIA GPUs, the other a pair of ATI GPUs.  What they both had in common, however, was that they were PCIe 2.0 compliant. "That was a move that took me, personally, by complete surprise. Neither set of cards were identified, but they both were running two cards on 5Gbps links. It was only about a month ago that NV showed off their chips behind closed doors at the PCIe SIG meeting. ATI wasn't there. Now, they are both here, and both are working." Check out the pics and more of the story... 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...
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...

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...
