Good afternoon HotHardware fans! Just in case you missed the link at the top of the page, we wanted to let you know that we've just posted a shoot-out between two high-end i925X motherboards from the Abit and Asus, the AA8 DuraMAX and the P5AD2 Premium. These are some of the first enthusiast class boards to arrive that support Intel's new LGA775 processors. We ran quite a few benchmarks and compared them to an i875 throughout. Click here and take check them out!... Read more...
  Intel's recent new platform launch of the i915 and i925X chipsets marked a major overhaul of the Pentium 4 system level architecture and brought with it a host of new features and technologies.  At the processor and IO levels, the addition of DDR2 memory and the PCI Express interface significantly increased theoretical available system bandwidth. In addition, the new LGA775 socket and accompanying package for the P4 brings significantly better thermal characteristics to the newPrescottcore, which was getting to be known as a real nuclear reactor of a chip. When all was said and done, Intel had made obvious enhancements to the platform and added new features to it, such as high-definition... Read more...
Whoa!  I've only been offline for about 8 hours, and already our news box is chock full of goodies!  For a geek like me, there's not much better than waking up to a healthy sampling of hardware related articles.  I just brewed a fresh pot of coffee, slammed down a pastry and some toast, and now I'm going to settle in for some good reading.  When I'm done with that, I'm going to button up a review of Asus' excellent Radon X800 Pro!  I figure some of you might want to do the same (minus that part about writing a review), so here's enough hardware news to keep you busy for most of the morning - just don't spill any coffee on your keyboard...  Shuttle's XPC SK83G SFF...

Sneak Peek:  NVIDIA's GeForce FX 5700 Ultra with GDDR3 RAM By, Marco Chiappetta March 24, 2004 Monday, March 22, 2004: Good afternoon folks! An interesting package just landed in the lab, that we thought you'd like to take a look at. At first glance, the card below looks like an ordinary GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, but upon closer inspection one major difference is revealed... NVIDIA GEFORCE FX 5700 ULTRA WITH GDD3 MEMORY Unlike the GeForce FX 5700 Ultras available at retail, this particular card is equipped with Samsung GDDR3 memory. Most of you have probably heard that next generation parts from NVIDIA will use GDDR3 memory, and while we can't say anything for certain at the... Read more...
Getting PC1066 Level Performance From PC800 RDRAM & PC800 Motherboards A modification project on the Abit TH7II-RAID By, Dave Altavilla April 5, 2002   It's been a long time coming but finally, the Pentium 4 platform has gone mainstream enough that motherboard manufacturers, like Abit, are building motherboards with the "Power User" and "Tweaker" in mind.  We've seen a bevy of motherboards recently released for the Pentium 4, with DDR SDRAM chipset from Intel, SiS, and VIA.  However, RDRAM boards, with a few exceptions, have been a little bit more straight forward with fewer bells and whistles than their DDR counterparts.  Regardless, Abit's fantastic...

The Gigabyte GA-6CXC Motherboard The i820 With  SDRAM  Support By, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta - 5/9/00 Usually when Intel releases a new motherboard chipset, there is a big rush to upgrade.  Power users, OEMs and do-it-yourselfers gobble up motherboards based on the new chipset to take advantage of new features, increase performance or simply to have bragging rights.  :)  With Intel's new i820, this hasn?t happened just yet.  There has been some acceptance, but with the high price of RDRAM (or Rambus SDRAM), which is native to the i820, many users are unwilling to upgrade. When you sit back and think about it, what features over the aging BX chipset does... Read more...
  P4 i845 SDRAM Motherboards from Asus and MSI The Asus P4B and MSI 845Pro2-R do battle By, Dave Altavilla September 24th, 2001   The Pentium 4 definitely has had it fair share of struggle and strife.  In part, one of the reasons why Intel took some "heat" about the P4, was their choice of system memory interface.  True, RAMBUS does provide serious bandwidth advantages over legacy PC133 subsystems but cost factors and business practices of Intel's memory partner, have proven to be a serious thorn in their side.  Not too long after the release of Pentium 4, arch rival AMD signed up in the DDR SDRAM camp and provided a lower cost alternative with bandwidth in...

The Soyo SY-6ICA Motherboard Soyo's RAMBUS Driven i820 Offering By, Dave "Davo" Altavilla - 5/17/00 Here we are again with yet another look at a motherboard from a top notch supplier based on Intel's controversial chipset, the i820.  Whether you are interested in SDRAM supported designs with Intel's infamous MTH (memory transfer hub) or a somewhat expensive RAMBUS implementation, there is  definitely no shortage of opinions to go around about this new chipset and the motherboards designed with it.   We tend to avoid the rumor mill and chatter surrounding the industry and the products it spawns but rather approach reviews of the products made available to us with...

The Elsa Gladiac Based on the NVidia GeForce2 GTS With 32MB DDR SDRAM By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 6/4/00   Graphics Card reviews are probably the most regularly covered material that we produce here at Hot Hardware.  Perhaps that is because there is an almost dizzying array of manufacturers to choose from.  Regardless, Elsa has been known in the market for quite some time as a quality Graphics Card vendor with years of experience (15+ to be specific) in design and manufacturing.  In addition, keeping pace with 3D graphics technology, Elsa releases products with every 6 month new release that the graphics chipset giant NVidia, can dish out.  This is our take on...

    The gating item. Something that renders everything else dependent upon its outcome or performance. The type of SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) you have installed in your PC weighs heavily on the overall stability of your system and the various other components that rely on it. These include just about every other device in today's X86 based computer. For this article we are focusing on SDRAM since it is the mainstream base memory component used in today's PC. Older technologies such as EDO DRAM and Fast Page Mode still exist in some computers but all new systems are designed with SDRAM now. Future generations of memory, such as RAMBUS and DDRAM (Double Data Rate... Read more...
PC133 CAS2 SDRAM Module Competition Corsair Vrs. Mushkin By Dave Altavilla - September 19, 2000   Like building a house on a solid foundation, there is just no substitute for good memory, when it comes to performance computing.  Virtually all of the various components in your PC access main system memory at some point or another.  Whether you are an avid "Over-Clocker" or the conservative type, there is nothing more essential to system stability than a robust Main Memory Subsystem.  Having memory installed that is capable of handling the high end clock rates of today's modern system busses, can be the difference between "rock solidness" and an irritating...

The Kingmax TinyBGA PC133 SDRAM DIMM A New Form Factor In PC Memory Technology June 14, 2000 By Dave "Davo" Altavilla   We've said this before and the same rings true time and time again, the PC Hardware Industry always has a place for something new and innovative.  Too often products are brought to market with a "me too" approach and there is little to differentiate them from the rest of crowd.  We are always looking for the products that stand out, here at HotHardware and the Kingmax "TinyBGA" SDRAM DIMM Module is one of those products.  So, what makes this memory module so different from all the other hundreds of modules offered in the memory...
