A few months ago, we assessed the performance of a pair of GeForce 6800 GTs and a pair of GeForce 6800 Ultras running in SLI-mode, and were impressed by the platform's performance.  We did have some concerns over driver support and the TCO of the platform, however. NVIDIA's current SLI (Scalable Link Interface) technology requires a specific profile be integrated into the drivers that dictates whether alternate frame rendering (AFR) or split-frame rendering (SFR) can be used for a particular application, and without that profile SLI won't function correctly. And a pair of GeForce 6800-class cards plus an nForce 4 SLI motherboard commands a significant monetary investment, so the technology... Read more...

Getting PC1066 Level Performance From PC800 RDRAM & PC800 Motherboards A modification project on the Abit TH7II-RAID By, Dave Altavilla April 5, 2002   It's been a long time coming but finally, the Pentium 4 platform has gone mainstream enough that motherboard manufacturers, like Abit, are building motherboards with the "Power User" and "Tweaker" in mind.  We've seen a bevy of motherboards recently released for the Pentium 4, with DDR SDRAM chipset from Intel, SiS, and VIA.  However, RDRAM boards, with a few exceptions, have been a little bit more straight forward with fewer bells and whistles than their DDR counterparts.  Regardless, Abit's fantastic...

Home Grown Networking and Modems from ActionTec Electronics https://www.actiontec.com   Not long ago, "Home Networking" was a segment of the PC and Peripheral Market that did not even exist.

    January 11     Getting 515 From Your Little Machine     First, allow me to give you some backgrond on my motives with respect to overclocking. I am a speed freak. I intend to push my hardware as far as it will go without damage to the components. Some people are value freaks. They want the most horsepower for their buck and are concerned about cost. While cost is an issue sometimes for me, I opted for the PII-333 for my overclocked gaming rig. The option is a little more risky due to the fact that the PII-333 is multiplier locked at 5X. So, if your CPU won't do 500MHz then you're stuck at 415 (5X83) or less... Now, this took some serious hunting around to find... Read more...
