Good morning my friends welcome back to HotHardware :)  Sorry about the lack of news last night, I didn't get back from the day job until nearly 12am.  Needless to say, this News Jockey is craving the caffeine this morning.  I wonder if thinkgeek would do an emergency shipment????  nVidia 6600GT Previews from around the web: Hexus HardOCP NVNews xBitlabs PC Perspective  Silverstone LC06 review @ Epiacenter.com "It doesn't matter whether it's used in a living room or an office the Silverstone LC06 always looks good.

Good morning everyone.  We've got a new preview for you this morning. Today, NVIDIA unveiled their next additions to the GeForce 6 series, namely the GeForce 6600 and 6600 GT. Both are aimed at offering value-based PCI-Express solutions, competing directly with ATI's X600 line.  The goal is to offer a superior performance solution for a lot less than the 6800 models, while still delivering many of its advanced features, including GDDR3 and SLI capabilities.  In an effort to provide you with a little more detail on NVIDIA's newest creations, we've put together a preview of each card, spotlighting its features and capabilities.  Click here for more details....

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....

The battle between NVIDIA and ATi for dominance in the desktop 3D gaming video card market has been on-going for many years.  With each new product they release, both companies attempt to leap-frog the other by introducing new features and increasing performance over their previous generation.  The competition has gotten so fierce, that every 6 months or so a new product hits the scene that turns last season's flagship video cards into a mid-range parts, that will soon be sold at bargain basement prices. Both NVIDIA and ATi have done very well with their desktop GPUs, but a new market recently emerged that demanded their attention.  "Desknote" or Desktop Replacement Notebooks,... Read more...

Good morning folks, I hope you survived the night okay :)  In the effort of saving time this AM, we are going to skip over the banter and get right down to business.  So, go grab a cup of coffee and settle in for a long read.  Here is your morning shot of juice... Athlon 64 FX-53 & Athlon 64 3800+ Socket 939 Processor Review @ Sharky Extreme "The introduction of the AMD64 line of processors was a rousing success on many levels, but there were a few niggling issues to address. The Athlon 64 FX-51 940-pin represented the new high-end of the processor scale, featured a powerful dual-channel memory controller, and supported both 32 and 64-bit software, but it could only use...

ATi Introduces the HDTV Wonder Bringing High Definition TV to the PC By, Jeff Bouton February 26, 2004   While we are all sitting and watching the 3D Graphics card battles rage on, in the PC TV Tuner industry, competition is a little less prominent.  While a lot of enthusiasts are caught up in the hype of whose video card is faster and which one has the better image quality, there are other developments going in adjacent markets, that sometimes catch us off guard.  The latest of these developments is ATi's recent announcement of their new HDTV Wonder TV card that can deliver a High Definition Television experience to the PC.  Recently some manufacturers have made the jump...

VIA PT880 Chipset Preview A Performance Preview of VIA's Dual-Channel P4 Chipset By: Chris Angelini December 8, 2003           For the first time since NVIDIA unveiled its nForce2 chipset more than a year ago, VIA is in a very promising position.  To begin, AMD's Athlon 64 is upon us, bringing with it an integrated memory controller that really equalizes the advantage NVIDIA once enjoyed.  In fact, the nForce3 and K8T800 chipsets generally fall within a percentage or two of each other in performance benchmarks.  VIA's leg-up comes in the form of an encompassing feature set.  Its VT8237 South Bridge includes native Serial ATA support...

ATI RADEON 9100 IGP Preview Integrated Graphics for the Pentium 4 By: Chris Angelini July 7th, 2003 ATI's engineers have worked hard this past year.  At the risk of being redundant, they've escorted to market the R300 series of Visual Processing Units (VPUs), they've spun off mainstream versions of the same chip for broader appeal, and they've successfully implemented the R300 and R350 processors (operating at full-speed) into the All-In-Wonder family of multimedia products.  What a busy bunch of beavers.  But there are other aspects of computing in which the expertise of a graphics company proves useful.  ATI's rival, NVIDIA, already knows that.  NVIDIA's nForce and...

The GeForce FX 5900 Ultra  A Preview And Performance Analysis With NVIDIA's New Killer By - Dave Altavilla May 12, 2003 Here we are again, with another installment of my pixel is faster than yours.  Why is it that Graphics Cards create so much buzz in the PC Enthusiast market?  Perhaps it's because Processors, Motherboards, Memory and Drives are just a little too sterile, in terms of the what Marketing Weasels can spin up for the general public?  We here at HotHardware, actually get fairly jazzed up about a next generation Motherboard Chipset or CPU but then again, some of us don't get out much.  Companies like Intel, AMD, SiS and VIA, do an excellent job of marketing...

  ATI 'M10' Mobile Graphics Preview Mobile Gaming Diversifies By, Chris Angelini March 13th, 2003 The computer industry has been in the doldrums as of late.  And as much as we want to deny it, business isn't picking up as quickly as the analysts forecasted.  It isn't voodoo, though.  There is no witchcraft involved in judging the future of the fair industry in which we work.  Look at the roadmaps - processors continue getting faster, core logic adapts in time, and we are continually treated to more I/O bandwidth.  But that's to be expected.  That is what we call evolution.  What the industry needs is something to reignite the excitement that was felt when...

  ATI RADEON 9700 and 9500 Family Preview Meet The Whole Family! By: Chris Angelini October 24th, 2002 ATI has been hammering away at NVIDIA?s firm grasp on the hearts and minds of gamers, multimedia enthusiasts, corporate users and laptop owners.  Up until now, they have done so with individual product announcements, like the RADEON 9700 Pro, RADEON 9000 Pro, and so on.  Each card effectively delivered a well-aimed blow to NVIDIA?s comprehensive lineup, currently consisting of the GeForce4 Ti and MX families.  With the 9000 and 8500 cards covering the mainstream market, ATI is poised to further its cause in the mid and high-end 3D arenas, filling the gap between the RADEON...

  ATI All In Wonder 9700 Pro Preview The Fastest 3D in a Multimedia Package By: Chris Angelini September 30, 2002 If ATI were a Winston Cup NASCAR, we'd say that the company is efficiently firing on all eight cylinders.  The Mobility RADEON 9000 rules the mobile market, the well publicized RADEON 9700 Pro delivers the best performance to gaming enthusiasts, and the RADEON 9000 Pro is a solid mainstream card.  Further, ATI's latest round of hardware has been complimented by relatively stable drivers - a first, as far as the gaming community is concerned.  After the past few months of heightened success, what more could we ask for from the Canadian firm?  Well, consider...

  The ATi Radeon 9000 and Radeon 9700 Preview ATi 's Next Generation Products Unveiled By, Jeff Bouton July 18, 2002   The video card wars are heating up once again.  The rivalry between ATi and NVIDIA has never been more intense.  The two are poised for yet another battle in their ongoing attempts for market supremacy.  As of late, the two seem to be in strike / counter-strike mode.  ATi launches new drivers and NVIDIA launches Cg.  Just as was the case with the Radeon 8500 launch, ATi is the first to break the silence and have announced their next generation technology.  We can only assume that NVIDIA is lying in wait, to see what their arch-rival has...
