DigiTimes reports that NVIDIA is currently rushing to manufacture 80u variants of the company's G73-B1 and G72. Doing so will allow NVIDIA to better compete with rival ATI in the mainstream and entry-level GPU markets as the die-shrink will allow NVIDIA to run cooler, consume less power,  and allow for higher frequencies. ATI is already offering 80u products in these segments so NVIDIA is playing a game of catch-up in some respects. However, with NVIDIA supposedly releasing a new flagship GPU this month and ATI's answer not coming until Q1 2006 there is a bit of irony with the situation.  While ATI prepares to... Read more...

5GHz is screaming fast as it is, many will say clock cycles do not really matter. However, the fact-of-the-matter is that they do within a particular architecture. And we already know the Power architecture is very efficient. What the Power6 brings to the board is a top end 2x plus frequency boost over the popular Power5 series. This is likely to increase with process improvements. Plus many architectural changes that both increase efficiency and lower power consumption. Don't expect this chip in your next Mac. It targets the server market, where it should do very well, due to its vastly increased performance over the Power5 and lower power consumption architecture, a large if not primary... Read more...

About three months ago, we took a look at the Pentium Extreme Edition 955, which was Intel's first Extreme Edition processor built using the company's then brand-new 65nm manufacturing process. Each of the 955XE chip's two cores hummed along at a lofty 3.46GHz, and we found its performance to be quite good when compared to Intel's previous dual-core and single-core offerings. The Pentium Extreme Edition 955 was clearly Intel's fastest desktop dual-core processor in our tests, and due to the inherent benefits of the more advanced manufacturing process, the chip consumed much less power than its predecessor under-load, even though it was clocked almost 10% higher and was equipped with double the...

Here's something that's only for the hardest, or hardcore tweakers out there -- the HighSpeedPC Tech Station. Hardware-Review.Net has just posted a review of this cool product, that makes swapping out and testing hardware a snap. This is the kind of thing that makes working in the HH lab much easier as well."As a hardware reviewer, I evaluate new products and swap new components in and out of my test systems all the time. I don't know about you, but I hate having to swap motherboards and power supplies in ATX cases, unless they have removable motherboard trays. It just takes too long, especially when you're on a tight deadline to complete multiple reviews. I have always wanted a testing station... Read more...
The Inquirer reports this morning that NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 7900 GTX is actually going to be a stellar overclocker thanks to its 90u process. This is in stark contrast to earlier reports from The Inquirer that the GPU was not able to reach desired core frequencies and that yields could be an issue. This just goes to show you that prior to an official launch, the vast majority of the information you read is anything but certain. This is roughly as much as you can overclock ATI X1900 XTX cards with an air cooler, but as you know those cards can reach a gigahertz if you cool them with dry ice or some other crazy technique. 700MHz or just a...

Today, Paradise|OC presents us with the Highspeed PC Tech Station v2, designed for those of you who are constantly swapping hardware."There have been times when a box of band-aids has been needed for every finger when I go to work in a case. No matter what, I always got a few cuts from somewhere in the case. They were small, so I never noticed until red stains started showing up on clothes and the case itself. Those are not fun times. That is one thing I look for in a case, one that is easy to work with, that won't turn my hands into confetti. This is where Highspeed PC's Tech Station comes in."I'm sure most of you understand where they're coming from. After all, what's a custom built system... Read more...

Hey folks, I'm just here to drop off the news. Goodnight all! Intel Files Response To AMD Complaint   SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 1, 2005 - Intel Corporation today filed its response to a lawsuit recently initiated by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) regarding Intel's business practices. In the response, Intel refutes AMD's claims and states that its business practices are both fair and lawful. The Intel response explains that AMD's claims are factually incorrect and contradictory. In addition, AMD's complaint -- by attempting to impede Intel's ability to lower its prices -- would hurt consumers, not help them. "Innovation, investment, customer focus and great products have led to Intel's... Read more...
              When we last took a look at some DDR2 memory back in October of 2004, the technology was still a bit new and didn't seem to offer any tangible performance benefits over standard DDR RAM.  Higher speeds could be obtained with DDR2 though, and these modules required less voltage, thus lowering overall power consumption.  The caveat with DDR2, however, was that early sets were much higher priced per MB than older DDR memory, and latencies were generally much higher, which kept performance on par if not slightly off the existing model.  The Intel camp was left without any options, as the 925 series of chipsets...

For your reading pleasure tonight, we have reviews for the asetek VapoChill LightSpeed, ASUS Extreme N600GT PCI-E, Hiper Type R Black & Silver Label 480W PSU, and a look at NVIDIA's SLI. Good night :) asetek VapoChill LightSpeed [AC] @ Viper Lair "It really is pretty amazing when you hear that single beep to signify a successful POST of your system after an overclock, and to hear it time after time no matter how high you raise the FSB ... absolutely magical. And I know mine isn't (currently) one of the best overclocks out there! Other folks are going higher, with 5GHz... Read more...
Hey folks, it's late but I've come to bring you the news while I still have a little brain activity left. Goodnight and peace out ;) Slipstreaming Office 2003 SP1 @ Viper Lair "Quite a few folks out there have a tendency or need to reinstall their systems on a regular basis and whilst many have got this down to an art, finding a shortcut that can reduce the overall re-install time is always a boon. I personally like to reinstall from scratch rather than making disk images, since I can update my applications along the way, but in the case of Microsoft Office we do have an option for a shortcut."

Hello HotHardware Fans!  BW here checking in to let you know that we've just posted a new review of Asetek's VapoChill LightSpeed [AC] vapor-phase cooler. Unlike the original VapoChill products, the standalone LightSpeed is compatible with almost any case and it doesn't draw any current from the system's host PSU. It's also using a more potent coolant, which gives the LightSpeed the ability to dissipate more heat.  Click here and check it out...... Read more...
Watch any episode of "This Old House", "Hometime", "The New Yankee Workshop", or any other Do-It-Yourself type program for that matter, and you're bound to hear a certain phrase repeated over and over. Carpenters, mechanics, plumbers, chefs, they all use it. This phrase has almost become a mantra for anyone who takes pride in their work. The phrase is, "use the right tool, for the right job."  Doing so will yield far better results, than half-heartedly tackling a project with whatever tools are handy.  You won't see a carpenter smacking a nail with the side of a wrench, and you won't see a good mechanic prying apart seized metal with a screwdriver,...

Mobile Gaming At Desktop Speeds Tests & Benchmarks With The Pentium 4M & NVIDIA's GeForce4 440 Go By Dave Altavilla 6/3/02   There was once a time when the average Laptop Computer, even the top of the line models, were designed and built strictly for business.  There were little if any true multimedia capabilities, without the need for DVD Drives, elaborate sound systems, CD-RW drives or 3D Graphics.  You got your basic CPU, Drive, RAM and LCD screen with floppy, keyboard and mouse.  The bells and whistles just weren't available and gaming on these machines was not even considered.  However, as the average end user became more PC savvy and technology made it possible...
