Good morning all... I've gone in and made updates to two sections of our ATi Radeon X800 article, that I think you all will find somewhat interesting. First, we discovered that the particular NV Forceware driver revision we were using in our Wolfenstein Enemy Territory tests, had issues relative to its setting of NV's trilinear optimization function.  We've updated the benchmarks with a graph based on the 60.72 Forceware driver set, that shows the effects of this setting both on and off.  You can find this update here. Secondly, I was also totally off the mark, with respect to Centroid AA and its ability to clean up the aliasing issues we were seeing in the "AS-Glacier" map... Read more...
Good morning HotHardware fans!  What a crazy couple of weeks, huh?  First the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra hits, and then just over two weeks later ATi plays their hand and unveils the X800 XT and X800 Pro.  On top of that, Rob got back from his honeymoon, Jeff moved to NC, we launched the new site and finished a couple of reviews in between!  I'm sure I speak for the rest of the crew when I say it feels like we've just finished running a marathon!  The good news is, there's still a lot of exciting stuff on the horizon - We're still tweaking the site, Intel and AMD will be bringing some good stuff to market shortly, and we hear some other graphics companies may have a treat...

Good evening friends :)  Sorry about this morning, but my Internet connection was DOA when I awoke this AM.  I placed an order for an upgrade to my Internet service a few days ago; and of course they choose the daytime to cut my service while they did the platform swap. :P  Nevertheless, I am back up and running and there is a slew of news to dig through, so, on with the show...

Hello All,   I don't think we need much of a flowery introduction here!   ATi's Radeon X800 XT and Radeon X800 Pro are live and on showcase at HotHardware:... Read more...
  There is no question, the year ahead in 2004, is shaping up to be a banner one for leading edge PC technology.  New features and performance abound, as new technologies such as PCI Express, DDR2 and GDDR3 find their way into the mainstream.  While the past few iterations of platform products have been more or less, "kicker" implementations of legacy technology, this year's refresh marks what could be exponential performance gains with a host of new features. Likewise, the 3D Graphics market is on a major run with NVIDIA and ATi leading the charge to real-time cinematic effects and what looks to be a significant boost in available rendering power and programmability...

  Albatron's PX875 Pro Motherboard Power, Performance, and Good Looks By: Jeff Bouton February 5, 2004 Since the advent of Intel's i865 and i875 chipsets, the two have performed similarly, with a slight advantage going to the 875 and its PAT (Performance Acceleration Technology).  Soon after the release of the 865 however, motherboard manufacturers were able to implement the same technology with a simple BIOS update, showing that the i865 is merely a binned down i875 with more conservative timings.  Not long after this was discovered, Intel made it clear that it was not PAT "officially" and it could not be called PAT in any way. After the initial dust settled, we all... Read more...
