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...
Beyond3D has posted word from 3DLabs that the company is exiting the professional 3D GPU market and will instead be focusing their attention on handheld graphics. Being a cornerstone of the OpenGL 2.0 spec amongst countless other contributions, the loss of yet another competitive GPU vendor is sure to be a loss for the consumer. Regardless, it is a bit odd to see the company now focusing on handheld graphics. Does anyone else see a strong resemblance to an announcement by BitBoys?"3Dlabs will transition from the shrinking professional workstation graphics market to focus on portable handheld devices which require intensive media processing for video, audio and increasingly powerful 3D graphics."...

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...

One review you might want to check out, is the Lian Li V2000 Tower review... the case has brakes. As silly as it sounds, it's actually a pretty good idea. Anyway, goodnight folks :) Lian Li V2000 Tower Review @ GruntvillE.com "The entire Lian Li V-Series comes standard with billet aluminum wheels. Now if your desk is slanted, this could pose a problem but Lian Li thought of everything. The wheels come with a brake! The brake consists of a billet rectangle attached around the center of the rear axel and a metal plate. When the brake... 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."

Welcome everyone, NJ here with another edition of the HH Nightcap.  On tap tonight we have a varied selection of juice which should satisfy the rumbling in your news-hungry bellies.  So, pull up a chair, toss on some music and enjoy the news.  Here is your evening update...  The State of 3D Article @ PenStar Systems "NVIDIA took a different approach than ATI did in overall pipeline design, as it chose a narrow but long functional unit.  The NV35 had 4 true pixel pipelines, each with two texturing units attached.  These 4 pixel pipelines were very complex, and were able to put out a decent amount of work each clock cycle.  Due to the programmability of the...
