DigiTimes is reporting on an independant study that lists the top 25 semiconductor suppliers in the world today.  Intel sits comfortably on top, with a 14% increase over last year's revenues.  AMD has certainly enjoyed some growth as well, moving from 11th place in 2004 up to 9th in 2005, a growth rate just shy of 12%.  It's also interesting to see who ranks in the top 25 overall.  Intel is expected to solidify its position as the world's leading semiconductor supplier this year, posting the highest revenue growth among the top 10 chipmakers for the year, according to a preliminary ranking from iSuppli. Much attention has been focused on the market share gains that Advanced... Read more...
When ATi announced their new CrossFire multi-GPU rendering technology months ago, it could have been viewed by many enthusiasts and the market as more of a reactionary response to NVIDIA's SLI multi-GPU technology than anything else.  When our preview showcase article was posted, hardware was still months away from being a reality and since then, only bits and pieces have leaked out on performance expectations.  Regardless, what looked good then on paper, certainly needed to be taken with a grain of salt and a dash of skepticism, since frankly no one could be certain of product performance claims without hardware in hand.  All the while, NVIDIA's SLI product offering and the all-important...

  In recent months, the race between the two major industry playersto bring dual-core processing to the masses has heated up. On April 4th, Intel delivered its first dual-core Pentium offering in the form of the Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840.  AMD was soon to follow, on May 9th, releasing its dual-core Athlon 64 X2 4800+.   While Intel may have been first to deliver a dual-core processor for the masses, AMD's updated X2 processor architecture brought with it the path of least resistance by supporting existing socket 939-based hardware.  In fact, AMD's dual-core Athlon 64 X2 requires only a simple BIOS update to support the new processors.  Conversely, Intel's...

Good evening all...  By now you've probably read a few of the articles post around the web regarding the new Microsoft Xbox 360 console and the ATi Graphics Processor technology that will be the main rendering engine in the machine.  If you haven't had the chance to dig into the scene yet, there are articles up at the following sites: Firing Squad's "Inside Xbox 360's Graphics" does a good job of covering the basics of the architecture and includes an interview with ATi VP of Engineering for Xbox 360, Bob Feldstein. HardOCP has two articles up - An "Xbox 360 Sneak Peek" and "Xbox 360 GPU Features" with their usual down-to-earth layman's approach to the... Read more...
Good Afternoon All! The headline says it all. We've got one of the first retail ready nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition motherboards on the test-bench today. The Asus P5ND2-SLI Deluxe is loaded with features and expandability in typical Asus fashionl, and the board lit up the benchmarks like no other Pentium 4 based board we've seen in a long time.

Mobile Graphics technology is advancing at a fevered pace. In a little over a year, the once dominant Mobility Radeon 9600 was eclipsed by the Mobility Radeon 9700. Then, the MR 9700 was surpassed by the Mobility Radeon 9800, which itself was recently eclipsed by the Mobility Radeon X800.  ATI's mobile GPUs went from 4, to 8, to 12 pixel pipelines, they now have essentially the same feature sets as their desktop equivalents, and they have frame buffers as large as 256MB. And these are only the high-end mobile products to come from ATI. They also released a few mid-ranges mobile GPUs, namely the Mobility Radeon X600 and X300.  In addition, NVIDIA also released their own group of mobile... Read more...
Good afternoon HotHardware fans! We're closing out 2004 with a couple of motherboards from DFI.

Over the past year, DFI has made a name for itself with a crowd that is traditionally very hard to please.  A company that once built parts strictly for the OEM / white box folks, is now catering to the enthusiast and overclocking communities with a bold, feature laden line of motherboards.  DFI's "LANPARTY" products build upon their already solid reputation of producing reliable and stable motherboards, by incorporating a full compliment of overclocking and performance tweaking tools on motherboards that are designed to turn some heads.  With dark PCBs and UV reactive orange and yellow connectors, DFI's LANPARTY motherboards don't look like any others. Sure, just about... Read more...

There's a certain allure in being able to make the claim that you can double the performance of anything. All too often, overzealous marketing campaigns in the high-tech field have made a "theoretical" claim of this sort, all the while falling well short in real-world performance metrics.  The PC graphics industry has had its hand at blurring this line, as well, but the last new architecture launches from both NVIDIA and ATi have in many cases actually delivered on this bold statement as compared to their respective previous-gen product offerings. Another way you can make this claim without totally having to sling the snake oil is to pair up two of your latest and greatest products... Read more...

The Springdale Showdown Which board should you "spring" for? Brought to you by Robert Maloney July 10, 2003           This is the kind of article that PC Hardware Tech Editors live for, not only a simple one-on-one comparison, but a full-blown, knock-em-down, street fight for bragging rights.  Actually, we think round-ups like this are similar to a beauty pageant.  Sure, there's plenty of good-lookers on the stage, but which of them has that special something which will distinguish them from the rest?  Bikini jokes aside, it's what separates the stellar candidates from the mundane, that really makes for an interesting showcase,...

NVIDIA's GeForce FX Ultra A Pre-Production Showcase By - Dave Atlavilla January 27, 2003 The wait for NVIDIA's new GeForce has been almost an eternity it seems.  Since their initial hints at their next generation technology, back in June, there has been much speculation and rumor milling with regards to the specifics of the retail board level product and its forthcoming release to the public.  Also since that time, NVIDIA's arch rival ATi Technologies, has released several  variants of retail product, based on their R300 VPU.  This release of ATi product not only arrived much sooner than NVIDIA's next gen technology, but also delivered a stinging blow to NVIDIA's historic...
