It has only been about six weeks since ATI officially unveiled their new Radeon X1K family of products, but the Canadian based graphics giant is already introducing a new addition to the line-up today. It probably comes as no surprise to many of you that, in parrallel with their X1K family of products launch, engineers at ATI were also hard at work on a brand new "All-In-Wonder" featuring one of the company's new GPUs. The culmination of their efforts is the new All-In-Wonder X1800 XL, pictured below. This card has all of the same features as the "standard" Radeon X1800 XL, including a 16-pipeline, SM 3.0 class GPU clocked at 500MHz and 256MB of high-speed GDDR3 frame buffer... Read more...
Anandtech has been given a first-hand preview of a X1800XT Crossfire setup on the latest chipsets from ATI. Despite a few initial speed-bumps, the chipset division seems to finally be up to speed and ready to release some exceptional new products. Granted, we'll reserve final judgement until we have some retail boards in our hands though statements like the following certainly leave one optimistic.Because X1800XT Crossfire and The RD580 chipset have not yet officially launched, ATI has asked that we not publish hard benchmarks of our results, since they will likely change in final release versions. We can, however, talk in general terms about performance. Those of you who believe ATI is far behind... Read more...

If you read our comprehensive review of ATI's new X1K Family of graphics cards, you know how we felt about ATI's new line-up at launch.  If you haven't read our review, however, here's the gist of it. We thought ATI's X1K Family of products were a technological step forward, and at the high-end the Radeon X1800 XL and X1800 XT were competitive with NVIDIA's GeForce 7800 GT and 7800 GTX in D3D applications, but in OpenGL based applications NVIDIA's counterparts had an advantage. This particular performance breakdown may be about to change though. ATI has recently posted a "HotFix" driver that addresses OpenGL performance. ATI claimed performance improvements in the neighborhood... Read more...
We certainly do evaluate and showcase our fair share of ASUS products here at HotHardware, and it's no great mystery because Asus is also typically one of the first out of the block with a new chipset technology.  The company's new A8N32 SLI Deluxe motherboard is no exception.  NVIDIA's new nForce 4 SLI X16 chipset has been out the door at NVIDIA for months now, but retail boards have yet to appear on the scene.  We've heard ABIT and others may have boards on the horizon, based on this new high-end NVIDIA chipset, but the A8N32 SLI Deluxe was the first to hit our test bench, and it looks like it will be the first to hit retail sometime this week.  NVIDIA has also launched...

We've had some big game releases this month, and today's release is... F.E.A.R.! From what I've heard, the game will take about 10 hours to get through(which I personally find disappointing), however it's supposed to be one incredible ride. In what seems to be becoming a popular trend, a patch has already been released for the game, less than a week(or day) after it's release. If you own the game, grab the patch, and if your still undecided on Monolith's new shooter, check back here tonight for some reviews. Enjoy the news!

With three SM3.0 implementations currently on the market (NVIDIA's 6 and 7 series, as well as ATI's X1000 series), there is sufficient hardware support... Read more...
While doing my usual surfing routine today, I came across an interesting read over at CNET. Some creative artists have made their mark in the oddest of places, a microchip. Some of the designs are really neat, I suggest you check them out. Also in the news today, Samsung has agreed to plead guilty to price fixing, and will pay a $300 million fine. Goodnight folks!

This past year has been a tumultuous one for ATI. The Canadian graphics giant has been plagued by well-documented supply problems and have had to deal with multiple delays to their next-gen product, being developed under the code name "R520". The situation is reminiscent of NVIDIA's prior to the launch of the NV30 which later became known as the GeForce FX 5800. Back then, NVIDIA had been commissioned to develop a GPU and chipset for the original Xbox, and planned to have their new GPUs produced on an advanced .13 micron manufacturing process. The combination of the move to .13 micron and the resource drain of developing core components for the Xbox caused NVIDIA to falter, which allowed... Read more...

RaidMax X1 ATX Gaming Case @ Bigbruin.com: "Raidmax continues to impress by offering unique, high quality items at a reasonable price. The Raidmax X1 case is no different... The X1 isn't as flashy as some of the recent "gaming" cases, but does retain enough of the "gaming" case feel with the front LCD, hidden drive bays, and a beautiful side panel." MSI NX7800GTX SLI @ Viperlair: "While we have a lot of praise to bestow upon the MSI NX7800GTX-VT2D256E, there isn't much we can say that we haven't already done so for the 7800 GTX in general. It's fast, occupies one slot, and with it, you can really crank up the image quality settings without sacrificing performance.... Read more...

Gigabyte 7800GT Review @ amdzone.com: "Since ATI got their act together with the Radeon 9700 it has been a very tough battle between Nvidia and ATI over who lays claim to the fastest video card for computer gaming, a constant tug of war that never seems to end. Earlier in the summer Nvidia fought back big with their G70 GPU and the 7800GTX, a card with unparalleled performance across the board. However, with it came a very hefty $500 price tag that most gamers simply cannot afford to pay. At QuakeCon a few weeks ago Nvidia had an answer to this with their 7800GT, the sweet spot of mid-range it cuts the costs by $100 while still being powered by the same graphics processor as the 7800GTX....
