Lost Circuits has just posted a review of Sapphire's flagship Radeon X1900 XTX video card. In typical LostCircuits fashion, Mike goes into great detail on the architecture and explains may of the X1900 GPUs key features. This is a good read. "Sapphire's repertoire of ATI-based graphics cards has recently been expanded to encompass the X1000 series, which includes the X1900 XT and the X1900 XTX, sporting slightly higher core and memory frequencies than the more plebeian "XT" version. The XTX version is what we are looking at today and to make a long story short, there is little out there that could match the performance of the new Sapphire flagship.... Read more...

Hey folks, the news is moving a bit slow, but it's still moving. AMD Zone has updated their Quake 4 benchmarks to include some numbers using two Radeon X850XT PE cards(Crossfire). On a more depressing note, Baseball season is now over, ended by a 4 game sweep of the Houston Astros by the Chicago White Sox. Two Sox in two years. It's the most generic thing to say, but I'll say it... there's always next year. Well folks, I'm out. Goodnight!

Over the last couple of years, we've evaluated quite a number of socket 939 motherboards for AMD Athlon 64 processors. The vast majority of these motherboards were based on NVIDIA's very popular nForce 3/4 chipsets, although a smattering were based on chipsets from SiS or VIA as well. In November of last year though, ATI also chimed in with a reference board based on their Radeon Xpress 200 chipset. In our initial coverage of that motherboard, we found it to be a worthy competitor to the nForce in the performance and overclocking departments, but thought the nForce 4 still had an edge in features and availability. Since then, however, the only other Radeon Xpress based motherboard we've tested... Read more...

Futuremark Interview (Part 1) @ Beyond3D "Over the years, Futuremark Corporation has launched a new version of their well-known application, 3DMark, to coincide with either a new version of DirectX or when there is a big enough range of products that offers support for specific key features within D3D.

Hey folks, who likes mondays? Not me, but I managed to get a chuckle this morning from "Flat-screen memorials to the dead emerge" story over at the Inquirer. Anyway, I need to be getting back to work, enjoy the news. X800GT BIOS Update Boosts 7% Performance @ CoolTechZone "Powercolor appears to be making its mark with the X800GT, ATI's answer to NVIDIA's 6600GT. Since Powercolor is one of the first few board partners to actually have a X800GT in the market, it's getting all the attention it possibly could. With that said, Powercolor does have a strategy behind promoting its X800GT offering. Unlike other board partners that went with ATI's R423 chips in order to save cost, Powercolor... Read more...
Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 74 GB Hard Drive Review @ The TechZone "Designed for servers and NAS/SAN systems, the drive of choice for high-performance workstation and gaming systems, the WD Raptor hard drive is a new class of drive that matches SCSI performance and reliability while providing simplified connectivity. Make no mistake about it, the Raptor is for serious speed freaks. If you don't run a server farm or play cutting edge 3D games then this is not the drive for you. However, if you're a power nut who wants - no needs - the fastest ATA drive available then this is your baby, or dinosaur as the case may be."

Today, we're going to take a look at the Sapphire Radeon X850 Pro PCI Express Graphics Card.  The X850 Pro follows ATI's reference design closely, sporting 12-Pixel Pipelines and 256MB of GDDR3 memory.  Based on the R480, the X850 Pro offers several advantages over the R423, the core driving the X800 series.  Like the R423, the R480 is built on a 130nm manufacturing process, but with a refined core that has been reworked for lower power requirements and higher yields.  Aside from that, the R480's base design is not all that different from its predecessor. The Radeon X850 Pro 256MB from Sapphire aims to bring the features of the X850 to the mid-range consumer, offering a solid... Read more...

Although the transition to PCI Express is in full swing, the huge installed base of AGP equipped systems is still a major market that's continually being targeted by every major video card manufacturer.

  When shopping for a new video card, naturally, we all want the fastest card available performance wise.  However, many simply can't justify the price that some high-end cards currently command.  With many premium models now selling for more than $500, gamers on a budget often need to focus their efforts on finding a good, mid-range 3D graphics solution.

Hey gang, happy Friday to ya!  I'm still trying to shake a nasty bug and the NyQuil fog from last night.  So let me wish you a great weekend and start you off with the morning news.  Thanks for stopping bye! A.C.Ryan RyanPower2 450w Modular PSU @ Viper Lair: "Overall, the AC Ryan 450w modular power supply is an excellent unit. The only negative thing that I found about it is that there were not enough mini 4-pin connections for my setup. Aside from that, the voltage levels all stayed at proper levels, the modular cable system makes my case look a whole lot cleaner, and actually makes installation easier since I don't have to hunt around for my cables."
