Perhaps by now you've heard that Nvidia has officially launched a little thing it likes to call Fermi  which is only the company's next-gen graphics architecture and currently the fastest single-GPU 3D accelerator on the planet. Fermi parts won't actually ship until early April, but already we're seeing a deluge of product announcements, the latest of which comes from MSI.On tap from MSI is the N480GTX-M2D15 and N470GTX-M2D12 videocards, or as we like to call them, GTX 480 and GTX 470 in MSI trim. Like every other Fermi-based card slated for release, these two parts both sport a 40nm GPU. The N470GTX-M2D12 ships with a 607MHz core clockspeed along with 1280MG of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3348MHz... Read more...
Shopping for a high-end videocard? Then you've probably been scoping out ATI's Radeon HD 5870, the fastest single-GPU card on the planet. Adding to the hype (deserved, mind you), MSI has just announced its R5870 Lightening graphics card, the only HD 5870 "built to be perfect."Already a killer card, it's not like the HD 5870 needs a whole lot of marketing jargon or performance enhancements, but MSI took the liberty anyway, and we're not complaining. Just as we're prone to get a little bit giddy over a decked out motherboard, MSI zeroed in on premium parts in constructing its R5870.To begin with, there's the 15-phase (13+2) power supply design, an industry first according to MSI, and a decent upgrade...

The hottest hoax hopping around cyber space this morning is the supposed availability of the first Fermi graphics card in pre-order form. It's being 'offered' by obscure online vendor SabrePC.com, which has the XFX GTX 480 graphics card listed for $679.99, a veritable 'bargain' compared to its original price of $699.99.Word to the wise: Don't go coughing up your credit card number, or any other personal information, for that matter. While it's not uncommon for upcoming parts to leak to the Web ahead of schedule -- including order pages like this one -- there's little to indicate this is the real deal, and plenty points to the contrary. There's the memory size, for one (unless there's some rounding... Read more...
Some of the most impressive booths at CES 2010 used walls of screens that were spanned and combined to display one scene. The experience is similar to walking into Best Buy and standing in the middle of the TV section while surrounded with LCDs and Plasmas, but perhaps on a grander scale. While companies have been using this tactic for years in order to leave a lasting impression on consumers, gamers are now able to make use of multiple screens in order to maximize the adventure. Without a doubt, multi-panel gaming is the hottest ticket in the enthusiast scene. While ATI's Eyefinity has been on the market for a few months now, NVIDIA's Surround Gaming will show up very shortly. Here's what... Read more...

Hey folks, just checking in to drop off the news, and let you know that Andrew has reviewed the Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 notebook, gamers looking for a mobile beast should give this one a look. Enjoy the news, good night! Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 - Gaming and Performance Andrew Ku "Consider this: a few years ago there were a handful of names making true blue notebook gaming rigs, i.e. Alienware, albeit in small quantities. But as the gaming generation grows, so does the interest in these powerful systems. So, it really comes as no surprised to us to see Dell and HP joining the fray. The difference is that Dell has really gone after the "enthusiast" gamer, rather than the casual "once... Read more...
