The new standard is fully compatible with earlier PCIe cards; a Gen 1 or Gen 2 card will run perfectly in a PCIe 3.0 slot. Just as PCIe Gen 2 offered double the performance... Read more...
In early November of last year, NVIDIA unveiled their successor to the nForce 5, the nForce 600 series. The starting line-up included three solutions supporting Intel's Core 2 processor, each aimed at a different segment of the market and each with a different price point. The most expensive chipset in the series, the... Read more...
Hello Everyone. We wanted to let you all know that we've just posted a new article in which we evaluate the features, bundles, and performance of two HDMI-equipped cards from Asus, the EAX1600PRO/I/256M/A and the EN7600GT/HDTI/256M/A. As their names imply, these cards are powered by ATI's Radeon X1600 Pro and NVIDIA's GeForce 7600... Read more...
Today at HotHardware, we will be looking at two video cards from Asus.  They don't necessarily scream "power user" and they aren't adorned with the flashiest packaging. Instead, these two cards are more like the utilitarian work-horses that one might expect to find in a mid-range PC, or even a DYI build that's...

  About a month ago, we had the privilege of reviewing HIS' Radeon X1950 Pro, a mainstream oriented graphics card that performed well, but we felt ultimately came up short against the similarly priced GeForce 7950 GT.  The model we received was outfitted with an oversized cooler dubbed the...

Not long ago, when we reviewed MSI's GeForce 7600 GT, the closest ATI-based competitor available was the Radeon X1600 Pro.  It was far from an apples-to-apples comparison from a technical standpoint, however.  While both models sported the same number of Pixel and Vertex Shaders and had similar prices, the X1600 Pro's...

Hello All.

Here's a snip from the article... "Today, ATI is adding yet another member to the Radeon X1K family... Read more...
About two weeks ago, ATI launched the Radeon X1950 Pro, a new mainstream graphics card with a host of new features. This graphics card was equipped with a single-slot cooler, a relatively low-power GPU that was manufactured on TSMC's 80nm fabrication process, and in a first for ATI, native CrossFire support.  Native CrossFire...

The BoxGods (That's right mortal!  Bow and worship the machine!) have a good hard apocalyptic look at Sapphire's Radeon X1650 Pro.  The Gods have spoken and offer... "Building your PC on a budget is a lot more fun when that budget is closer to $3,000 than $1,000; but, sadly,... Read more...
If you read our coverage of ATI's Radeon X1K fall-refresh featuring the new Radeon X1950 XTX, X1900 XT 256MB, X1650 Pro, and X1300 XT from last week, you know that we did not receive X1300 XT or X1650 Pro cards in time for launch.  A few days after posting the article, however, Sapphire's "retail-ready" versions of these...

Although there has obviously been a lot going on behind the scenes at ATI these last few months, i.e. the proposed AMD merger, the company has remained relatively quiet.  The last major graphics card launch was for the Radeon X1900 family back in January.  And since then, the company has released only a...

  Selecting the right video card when you're on a budget can be difficult. The major deciding factor for many gamers out there is price. As mouthwatering as it is to think about getting a top-notch SLI or CrossFire setup, it's a luxury that most simply cannot afford. Fear not though, as both Nvidia and ATI have some quality entry-level... Read more...
The folks in the XtremeSystems forum have posted some images of the new ASUS P5W64 WS Pro workstation motherboard. The most unique aspect of this new board is the presence of four PCI-E x16 slots. Obviously, the first thing our readers will think of is coming up with a way to get two ATI "Master" cards and two standard cards and... Read more...
  It's a shame, really. After nearly one year on the market, Socket-939 Athlon64 motherboards are finally getting to a point where we've always wished they would be. Feature packed, refined, tweakable, and quiet. Why is this a shame? Well, as AMD is transitioning to their new Socket-AM2 interface, interest in Socket-939 platforms... Read more...
For a time it seemed like AGP was long gone, but we're still seeing more cards put out in the aging format. HIS has produced an AGP version of ATI's X1600, and while it's certainly not top of the line, it's still a decent upgrade if your going from say, a GeForce FX5200 or something of that caliber. "With VGA manufacturers... Read more...
For the last year, Abit's biggest challenge has been conquering itself. Struggling with a combination of internal financial woes, corporate investigations, and a generally un-exciting product lineup, there is no doubt that the once mighty Abit has sagged as of late. Once considered a tier one motherboard maker with a keen ear to the needs... Read more...
