  This year's DigitalLife show in New York City seemed to be just a bit more festive, a bit more "real-deal", or perhaps we should just say a bit more well-attended from both an exhibitor and audience perspective?  In fact, since Ziff Davis picked up the gig, it has turned out to be like a mini-CES here on the east coast. There was also a big focus on gaming and entertainment this year, perhaps picking up where the dilapidated and now defunct E3 left off. As always, there were sights to see and excitement in the air.  Or was that just Carmen Electra?  Mmmm...Carmen -- Fetching as ever.  Sort of like the effect she has on most men, turning them...

Charlie from the Inquirer has snapped off a couple of pictures of wafers that reportedly contain 65nm Quad-Core AMD processor cores. Not much information other than the pictures, but still fun to look at nonetheless... "WHEN AND WHERE will AMD show off its 65 nanometre Rev H cores? How about two minutes ago at the Microsoft Global High Tech Summit in Santa Clara?" Looks like a typical 3.5" x 2" business card in those pictures.  And it looks like approximately 5 1/4 cores span the 3.5" card.  That makes each core about .66" wide, or roughly 16.72mm. 16.72mm squared is about 280mm2.  That would make the AMD's Quad-Core 65nm dies about 100 square millimeters...

Image quality isn't as big a selling point as performance when it comes to graphics cards, though it's still a highly important issue. After all, what's the point of throwing down the cash for a top performing card if the image quality isn't up to par with the competition? FiringSquad does another image quality comparison between ATI and NVIDIA, also making sure to focus on the problem known as "Texture Shimmering". "What is texture shimmering you ask? As a quick refresher, texture shimmering can occur when the mipmap transitions from one texture resolution to the next. If the transitions are harsh, the lower quality mipmap levels can stand out pretty dramatically; this... Read more...

As the title implies, TweakTown has a quick introduction to this year's Computex 2006 show in Taipei. From Intel to ATI, there should be some good hardware to get excited about this year. "For us, as an PC enthusiast consumer based computer website, we get excited about Computex because it is here we usually see a lot of cool new products which we can spend our pay checks on in the following months. This year is shaping up to be an interesting show which seems likely to be dominated by Intel and nVidia. AMD and ATI will be showing some interesting new products but with Intel and their new Conroe CPU and accompanying chipsets and... Read more...

Of course, we had to be there first to bring you... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that Foxconn could be showing off their own branded graphics cards at Computex this year. With boards designed by Foxconn and manufactured by Flextronics, there should be no major barriers to entry into the GPU market for Foxconn. Flextronics has been a longtime manufacturing partner for NVIDIA and is responsible for producing a significant amount of graphics cards which are then re-branded as one of the more familiar graphics card vendor products. Given Foxconn's enormous size, it should be interesting to see how their products are differentiated. More than likely, cost or features will be the focus of attention in hopes of capturing consumer attention.... Read more...

More information concerning Sony has found it's way into our news box. In reaction to the poor response to Sony's PS3 controller design, they've unveiled their latest design which looks, well, like a Playstation controller. That's not all though, as they've appeared to have taken an idea from their rival, Nintendo.  "Well done Sony. You have managed to show you have no creativity what-so-ever and, when it comes to gaming, all you know is hardware. Today Sony revealed it's "new" final version of the PS3 controller. Looks exactly like the PS2 controller doesn't it? Instead of redesigning the controller, they simply went... Read more...
Intel's current line-up of desktop processors based on the company's aging Netburst micro-architecture may not have the allure it once did with power users, thanks in no small part to fierce competition from arch-rival AMD, but their core logic chipsets have always been held in high regard. Intel puts an immense amount of resources into designing and qualifying their chipsets.  And over the years they've built and solidified a reputation for performance, features, and rock-solid stability. Another company with a solid reputation for building high performance, feature-rich and stable products is Asus. Over the years, we've tested and burned in a multitude of Asus-built products,...

  Fresh from the show floor of Intel's March 2006 Developer's Conference, and after spending some time behind closed doors with Intel, we have a sneak peek at Conroe performance for you today.  The following is a run down of benchmark numbers we recorded with hands-on testing of an early 2.66GHz Conroe-based dual-core system, versus an overclocked AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 dual-core system at 2.8GHz.   Before we jump into the numbers, we'll give you glimpse of what the chip itself actually looks like with a couple of spy photos we obtained at the conference as well.      Next we should give you some insight into the limitations we had to work with in our test...

Be it software, service, or just about anything else, there's almost always some teething problems. Google's Video Store is certainly no exception. As Ars Technica explains, there are some serious issues Google needs to deal with, and some areas Google is improving on. "The Google Video Store may have launched more than two weeks ago, but it's still clearly not ready for primetime. The company and its partners have taken notice of the lackluster launch and concomitant panning of the service in the press, and they've taken some steps recently to improve things. How does the situation stand now? Read on for my look at some of the initial problems... Read more...
Today Rob evaluates MSI's nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition based P4N Diamond motherboard.  We inspect its bundle, layout, BIOS, overclockability, and compare its performance to a handful of other boards powered by competing chipsets.   Check it out here!... Read more...
My right-hand man, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta (aka the Backbone of HH), checked in with me this AM with some super-stealth spy photos from the backrooms of the CES show in Vegas!  What we have for you here is one of the significantly more innovative products we've seen at the show this year, courtesy of MSI Computer. MSI Geminium - Upgradeable Graphics Card    What you're looking at is "technically" an upgradeable graphics card based on a pair of NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600 MXM modules that typically are used in notebook discrete graphics solutions.  There are two MXM (Mobile PCI Express) modules populated in the sockets in a SLI configuration with 512MB of total...

Tech Report has the scoop on MSI's demo of two MXM modules mounted on a discrete graphics card PCB which is essentially a single-board SLI configuration. With SLI making its way to notebooks sometime in the near future, this "proof of concept" is a lot closer to reality than we are being led to believe. Regardless, seeing two low-power mobile GPU's in removable sockets certainly gets one wishing for upgradable cores for discrete desktop graphics cards.CES - MSI is showing off a unique take on SLI that combines two MXM mobile graphics modules on a single PCI Express x16 card. It's just a prototype, but depending on interest, it could eventually make its way to market.... Read more...
Abit has earned a reputation over the years, as a builder of top-quality motherboards geared for high-performance enthusiasts and extreme overclockers. They've produced some exceedingly popular products in the past, like the legendary BX6 and long-time favorite the TH7-II RAID, and the company continues to innovate today. In our tenure here at HotHardware, we've taken a look dozens of products from Abit, and save for a few rare exceptions, they've all been very good and deserving of consideration. That's something we can't always say about a few other motherboard manufacturers. Today, we're going to evaluate not one, but two motherboards from Abit, both based on NVIDIA's nForce 4 SLI chipset.... Read more...
