Thumb drive makers have managed to cram quite a bit into the pinky-sized drives, but there are limits to capacity and to some degree performance, since there is only so much room to work with. Fortunately, there is a nice middle ground between thumb drives and larger external SSDs that conform to the popular 2.5" form factor. EMTEC, for example, has a new line of external SSDs that use a 1.8" form factor, which offer respectable read speeds, although they won't win any performance contests versus more expensive drives. The EMTEC Speedin' X600 is a USB 3.0-compatible drive available in 128GB, 256GB or 512GB capacities at affordable price points. And at just 94 x 54 x 12 mm and 50g in... Read more...
MSI announced a new ultraportable notebook today. The new ultra-slim X600 is a 15.6-inch notebook that weighs 5.5 pounds and measures less than an inch thick at its widest point. The X600 features the Intel ULV CPU, which uses 1/6th the power of a regular mobile CPU. The X600 also comes with an MSI external optical drive for playing DVDs on the notebook’s HD LCD with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a supported resolution of 1366x768. The LCD combined with an ATI HD 4330 Graphics card delivers brilliant graphics and video. As the newest edition to the X-Slim family, the X600 also features a 320GB hard drive, 4GB of DDR2 memory, a 6-cell battery, and a 1.3 megapixel webcam. The X600 notebook is available... Read more...
MSI definitely didn't infringe on the iMac too much with its NetOn AP1900 all-in-one PC, but some might say the company's new X-Slim notebooks bear a strong (maybe too strong) resemblance to Apple's MacBook Air. Of course, we'd argue that the X340 and X600 both have a look of their own, but there's no doubt that some similarities exist. output, What's definitely different, however, is the processor, the color, the ports and of course, the operating system. Both computers are loaded with Intel's ultra-low voltage (ULV) architecture, and the X340 in particular includes a Centrino Mobile platform, a 13 inch LED-backlit display, a maximum thickness of just 1.98 centimeters, an HDMIBlu-ray support,...

Looks like ATi is gearing up to give NVIDIA a run for their money in the integrated video motherboard chipset space.  X600-like graphics on board; smells like it has HTPC all over it.  The Inq posted the skinny on this yesterday but I was too lazy to snap this up at the time... sincere apologies. Really...The next generation of chipsets will feature a new integrated core with four pixel pipelines and it should be relatively close to the X600 performance. It might end up a little bit slower due to slower memory performance from the integrated memory, but it should be in that range. This new graphic core enslaved in ATI's future chipset should feature all you need for Longhorn, Vista... Read more...
Hey folks, we have a few video card reviews for you tonight. In addition to the ones listed below, make sure to check out Robert's review of the MSI GeForce NX6800GT-T2D256E. Goodnight! HIS X850XT IceQII Platinum Edition and X850XT IceQII Turbo AGP @ Rage3D "Both the X850XT-PE and X850XT come with respectable bundles. The only difference between the bundles are the X850XT comes with a CD that contains HIS' iTurbo utility and a DVD containing bonus software and games. The X850XT-PE doesn't need the iTurbo software so that's not included, but for some reason it also doesn't include the bonus DVD. It does however include a PowerDVD 6 CD."

Good evening everyone :) The New England Patriots have beaten the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21. Like most people, I'd have to say I was extremely impressed with the way Terrell Owens played. I expected him out by the end of the first half. The euphoric feeling that a home team victory gives you is starting to wear off now, so I'll unload some more tech news. Included in the post tonight, is a review for ABIT's RX600 Pro-Guru, the TriGem KLOSS KL-I915A SFF PC, and a few other items. Well folks, read on and enjoy!

Hi all!  Today at HotHardware.com we've posted our review of ATI's All-In-Wonder X600 Pro.  This is the first All-In-Wonder based on PCI Express, but that's not all that's new.  ATI revamped the design with a much smaller tuner and came up with an innovative approach to cable management too.  Check out the full story here!...

If you are looking to add a TV tuner card to your computer, there are a broad range of choices currently available, ranging from economical solutions to high-end cards that offer more advanced capabilities.  However, if you are looking for a TV/Video card combination, there are fewer choices, namely NVIDIA's Personal Cinema, S3's OmniChrome and the more popular All-In-Wonder series from ATI. The All-In-Wonder series has been around for a very long time, with ATI pioneering the concept well over a decade ago.  What was initially a novelty to some has evolved into a strong product line that offers a complete solution right out of the box. Combining a video card and TV card onto a single... Read more...

Hello All!  I just got back from CES in Las Vegas and am trying to get back into the swing of things.  I should be updating my blog shortly and will also be working on a review of a sweet little small form factor PC from Soltek.  For not though, I think it's time for some news.  We're going to try something a little new with this post.  Consider it an experiment...

Well it's almost Christmas, and by this time tomorrow I should be eating the food of the holidays :) Turkey, ham, potatoes, squash, and much more... I can't wait! Last I heard, we might get some snow tomorrow, so be safe and have yourself a Merry Christmas! Samsung SCX 4100 Multifunction Printer @ GideonTech.com "I've always been wary of multifunction printers as they provide a lot of options but none are all that great on it's own. Whether it be scanning or printing an image, it used to be better to just buy separate devices and hooking them up. With SCX4100 from Samsung, things may just have changed."

Earlier today I was shopping on E-Bay for a budget card for my friend... 9500 Pros going for around $70! I don't know, I was going to get my next card(6800 GT) from retail, probably Newegg, but E-Bay is just to good to pass up. Yeah, yeah... scammers all around and Pay-Pal can be a big hassle, but I've had some good experience from E-Bay so I'll take my chances again. Well, I'm going to play some HL2:DM after this, and then hit the sack, so let's get on with the news...

Good evening friends, NJ here with your nightcap.  I just walked through the door from work, so I am going to cut the banter short.  The smell of fresh pasta and garlic bread is just killing me ;)  Here is your news shot...  Sapphire X600 XT PCI Express Video Card Review @ AMD Zone "The advanced graphics port first showed up long ago after the bottlenecks of the PCI interface were reached by the first graphics cards to fully stress the memory bandwidth of the interface. At the time, there was a lot of hype but no real performance difference between the two but in time the superior AGP interface eventually showed it's worth and became the only interface available for graphics...

Good evening folks!  Just in case you're the type who scrolls down right to the news, we want to let you know that we've just posted a new article comparing two affordably priced PCI Express graphics cards, the Asus Extreme AX600XT and the MSI GeForce PCX 5750. Click here to check it out......

  With much anticipation and fanfare, the next generation in video card interface has arrived.  PCI Express, the successor to AGP, is now available on a number of Intel-based boards starting with the 900 series chipset.  VIA, SiS, and others are sure to follow in the coming months. It's still uncertain when the other OEM solutions will come out with PCI-E (not to be confused with PCI-X), but regardless of potential delays, PCI-E will be universal sooner than later. The potential benefits of PCI-E over AGP are dramatic, offering peak bandwidth of 4GBps (8GB concurrent), which more than doubles that of AGP 8X.  Initially, PCI-E appeared on the high-end of the scale with...

Good morning all.  Sorry if I'm later than usual with your morning news.  The past few days my Cable connection has been very slow and the folks at RoadRunner say everything looks good.  While it may look good on their end, I'm slogging along at Dialup 5x speeds.  Hopefully I can make enough noise to get something fixed, but it looks like they have the upper hand.  It's a real shame it has to be that way.  Anyway, the news is flowing this morning, so let's get down to business.

Good morning HotHardware fans!  How's everybody doing today? I hope you're all doing well. I, myself, am walking around in a fog. I've been benchmarking like a fiend for the past week or so, and yesterday was the first day in a while that I didn't have to run any numbers. It was weird, I think I'm went through some form of withdrawal! And to top it off, I went to bed WAAAY to early last night, and slept too much.  I think my brain hasn't switched on yet. Oh well, it's nothing some coffee and reading a few tech articles can't fix...  Arctic Cooling NV Silencer 5 & ATi Silencer 4 @ The Crucible: "The Arctic Cooling NV5 and ATi4 Silencers provide excellent cooling, low noise...

Hello all!  How is every one doing today?  I hope you're all doing well!  I'm still in a fog trying to comprehend some of this theories put forth by Stephen Hawking and his contemporaries in the special / interview that aired on the Science Channel last night.  I love hearing theories about quantum mechanics and the birth of the universe.  Especially since we really know very little about our origins.  Consider that fact that we have just now detected two new moons on Saturn and a new gas on Jupiter.  If we're still finding things in our own solar system, how much is out there that we haven't even begun to imaging yet?  Science is so cool...  WaterChill...

Good morning folks!  How is everybody doing today?  I take it you all had a good weekend?  It was a little wet here in good ol' NY, but things have dried out nicely.  It is absolutely awesome outside right now, sunny with a light breeze.  Come to think of it, I should fire up the WiFi and get out there.  Hold on a second... Ok, I'm back!  Wow, I could definitely get used to this.  All I have to figure out now is how to get my overclocked personal rig stable in 80 degree weather and direct sunlight.  That's something I'll have to work on later though!  For now, it's onto the news...
