EPI, the North American brand partner for Philips monitors, has announced that it will have a very drool-worthy monitor available to purchase in the U.S. later this year. The 49-inch Philips Brilliance 492P8 is a curved super-wide display with a native resolution of 5120 x 1440. That wide panel is a VA unit with 1800R curvature, up to 600 nits brightness and up to 5000:1 contrast ratio. Viewing angles are 178-degrees and it has very narrow bezels. The thin bezels of the monitor are intended to make them ideal for people that want to stack them in multiple monitor setups. EPI is aiming these monitors directly at finance, engineering, design, A/V production and other industries. Unfortunately,... Read more...
Your PC (and maybe you) likely has a connection with DVI or VGA, a pair of interfaces that have seemingly been around since cavemen first discovered the computer. It hasn't actually been that long, however both are about to enter legacy status as a number of computer vendors and display makers start shunning DVI and VGA over the the next few years, according to In-Stat. The future belongs to HDMI and DisplayPort, and some of you are already there, especially if you're rocking a home theater PC. Why the shift? "DVI has no roadmap to upgrade the specification; it is essentially the same as it was upon its launch in 1999," says Brian O’Rourke, Research Director. "HDMI and DisplayPort, on the... Read more...
DRAM and storage-device maker Mushkin has announced their entry into the graphics card market with the release of no more than nine Nvidia-based graphics cards. The new graphics cards will be branded ultimateFX and start off with a very tame GTX 260 card, but work all the way up to a 2GB GeForce GTX285.

In the conclusion of our coverage of the Radeon HD 4850 and 4870 launch, we posted this statement, "...dare we say a $300 graphics card represents an excellent value, from a price point perspective? These cards are definitely going to put significant price pressure on NVIDIA's GTX 200 series." At the time, the GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 260 were selling for upwards of $650 and $400 respectively, and ATI's newly released Radeon, which performed somewhat better than the GTX 260, was introduced at "only" $299.Of course, NVIDIA quickly responded with a hefty round of price cuts that brought the GTX 280's price down considerably and put the GTX 260 and Radeon HD 4870 on roughly equal footing, but it...

NVIDIA is officially taking the wraps off of their new GeForce 9800 GTX card today.  With its predecessor, the GeForce 8800 GTX's, excellent pedigree the new GeForce 9800 GTX certainly has some pretty big shoes to fill.  Its name alone will make many users assume the GeForce 9800 GTX is NVIDIA's new flagship single GPU powered graphics card.  And technically it is.  But we all know what happens when people assume. Thankfully, there's no longer a need to make any assumptions.  We've got a trio of GeForce 9800 GTX cards in-house from NVIDIA's partners BFG, EVGA, and Zogis and have put them to the test with some of today's popular games running at XHD resolutions in single...

At the end of October '07, NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GT 512MB hit the scene and garnered near universal praise due to its strong performance and value proposition.  With its revamped 65nm GPU and single-slot board design, the GeForce 8800 GT was poised to storm the $200 - $249 graphics card space.  However, due to availability issues, street prices remained on the high side at launch.  This was especially the case for factory-overclocked models from well respected manufacturers that are currently selling for upwards of $300. Availability is still tight for the GeForce 8800 GT, but we thought it was time to round a few cards up for a HotHardware-style benchmark fest. ... Read more...
Hello All! We've just posted a new article here at HotHardware.com detailing our experience with a pair of EVGA's e-GeForce 7950 GT KO cards. We evaluated the e-GeForce 7950 GT KO's performance in both single-card and SLI modes, and compared its performance to a wide array of competition.

As enthusiasts, we'd all love to own a killer quad-core powered rig complete with a healthy amount of RAM, super-fast hard drives, and a pair of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce 8800 GTX cards pushing the pixels. The kind coin required to assemble a system like this puts them well out of reach for the majority of us, however, hence the immense popularity of more affordable, mainstream products like the one we're going to talk about today, EVGA's e-GeForce 7950 GT KO. As the newest member of the GeForce 7 family, the GeForce 7950 GT has a lot going for it. The GPU offers all of the features of its more expensive sibling, the GeForce 7900 GTX, and arguably more thanks to the full HDCP... Read more...
Hello All! We're writing to let you all know that we've just posted a fresh article where we evaluate the features, bundle, and performance of EVGA's e-GeForce 7950 GX2 card. Here's a snip from the piece: "As you would expect form a card with a pair of G71 GPUs and 1GB of frame buffer memory running in tandem, the EVGA e-GeForce 7950 GX2 performed much like a pair of GeForce 7900 GT cards running in SLI mode. The EVGA e-GeForce 7950 GX2 was clearly much faster than any of the other single-GPU based cards we tested, and it traded the top spot in most tests with the 7900 GT SLI setup."... Read more...
When we first took a look at the Gigabyte GA-SN-SLI Quad Royal motherboard a few months back, we gave it solid praise, yet lamented on what we thought was an exciting opportunity. The board was capable of supporting up to four individual PCI-e based graphic cards, but the Quad Royal was only able to support two GeForce cards running in an SLI configuration. Around the same time we posted that review, however, NVIDIA was promoting Quad SLI in pre-configured systems through a handful of resellers - typically for a premium. NVIDIA remained mum on the prospect of a DYI Quad SLI setup for a time, while in the labs they better prepared the hardware and drivers. From this testing was born the GeForce... Read more...

The Inquirer has posted some of the first pics of a supposed EVGA GeForce 7600GT OC graphics card in the wild. The post includes some preliminary specifications including 600MHz / 1580MHz operating frequencies which should make the card perform exceptionally well against similarly-priced cards. Again, time will tell and we'll reserve final judgement until we have the cards on our testbenches. The RAM is branded as K4J52324QC-BC14, which should be set at 700MHz (DDR3-1400), but as this is an EVGA OC card, 780MHz (1560MHz) shouldn't be beyond reach.... Read more...
