I was just looking through a box of old computer related things, and I found my Windows 3.11 disks. I was almost tempted to install them and take a trip down memory lane. I still remember using Windows 3.11 being cautious about putting Windows 95 on my computer. Those were the days :) ATi Radeon X800 XL Reviews HardOCP Tech Report Beyond3D PC Perspective Taking SLI and X850 XT PE to Bloodline @ HEXUS.net "While we were at Bloodline, we had some awesome rigs on display, including a stunning SLI system from Scan Internation, and a HEXUS built rig featuring a Radeon X850XT PE, in what was the X850's first public showing.

Good morning HotHardware fans!  We've got two new articles posted up for you today.  In the first we take a look at ATI's brand new Radeon X800 XL.  This card will appeal to anyone in the market for a high-end PCI Express graphics card, as its got all of the features of an X800 XT, but it's MSRP is actually less than $300! Click here to check it out. In the second article, we cover NVIDIA's brand new entry-level GPU, the GeForce 6200 with TurboCache Technology. The new GeForce 6200 with TurboCache Technology has the same feature set as any other GeForce 6, and performs like a card with a large amount of on-board memory, but it gets by with as little as 16MB of local memory. ...

Back on December 1, 2004 ATI officially announced their latest flagship GPU, the Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition.  The GPU powering the Radeon X850, previously code named R480, is an evolutionary product designed to improve yields and hit higher clock speeds than the older R423 GPU used on PCI Express variants of the Radeon X800.  With some tweaks to their original design and a little maturity in their manufacturing process, ATI was able to release a "new" GPU that's faster than the previous generation, that should be easier to produce in quantity.  Bringing out faster GPUs isn't the only by-product of maturity though.  With time, most companies are also able to...

Good morning everyone :)  Sorry about the later start this morning, I am fighting off a lovely head-cold which is playing havoc on my sleep schedule.  Nonetheless, our HH News Bin is filling up, so let's get the show on the road...  Legion Hardware - A look at the ATi Radeon X800 series "The Radeon X850XT is said to cost at least $50 US more than the X800XT and produces just 0.3 more gigapixel/sec. Most gaming titles struggled to place more than a frame per second between these two graphics cards, which is most disappointing given the price premium ATi have placed on the Radeon X850XT."  Sunbeam Transformer Case @ Systemcooling "Though I've mostly known Sunbeamtech...

Good morning all!  Man it's been odd listening to the other guys talking about snow and cold weather.  Moving to NC last April, Winter now has a new definition to me.  What used to be cold and snowy is now more sunny and warm.  Heck, the last few days were in the 70s.  A part of me misses the snow, but the other part really likes wearing shorts in December :)  Anyhow, you're here for news, not a weather report, so let's start things off... Ultra 500W Titanium ATX PSU @ Viper Lair: "The Ultra 500W Titanium ATX Power Supply may not have a modular cabling system, or flashy fans or windows, or even sleeved cabling for the most part, but it does have an excellent...

NVIDIA's SLI technology (Scalable Link Interface), which allows two PCI Express GeForce 6800s or 6600s to work in tandem to increase performance, has been getting a ton of press these past few months.  So much press that it has some PC enthusiasts wondering what ATi has been up to and what the Canadian-based graphics giant would do to counter the deluge of NVIDIA-related information circulating through the tech community.  Well it turns out that the folks at ATi have actually been hard at work on a few new products.  Today they're unveiling a whole new line of video cards in a wide range of price points.  And although ATi isn't quite ready to release any details with regard...

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. On our menu today, we have early benchmarks from the Radeon 850 XT-PE. I'm not 100% sure if these are legit, but they probably are. Also, we have reviews on Crucial Ballistix PC5300 DDR2 Memory, Zalman CNPS7700-AlCu Ultra Silent CPU Cooler, and a couple of other items. Oh and there's going to be a couple of changes to the way we post the news, one of them is fewer articles in each post, but more posts each day. We are also going to be posting various tech news, not just hardware reviews, so if you have something interesting, by all means use the 'Submit News' link and let us know what you've found!

In the past few months we've seen numerous announcements for PCI Express equipped core logic chipsets, and we have already evaluated a few of them as well.  We've previously looked at Intel's 900 Series of chipsets, NVIDIA's nForce 4 and ATi's RADEON XPRESS 200, and hope to get our hands on VIA's K8T890 and SiS' x56 chipsets very soon.  All of the major graphics chip makers have also been touting PCI Express support in their new GPUs.  In fact, ATi's and NVIDIA's newest graphics chips, the GeForce 6600 and Radeon X700, are native PCI Express parts, and have to be bridged in order to work with AGP.  After what may have been considered a slow roll-out, it seems like the move...

Over the last six weeks, three new chipsets for the AMD processor platform have been announced that all have one very important feature in common.  NVIDIA's nForce 4, VIA's K8T890, and ATi's RADEON XPRESS 200 all have support for the emerging PCI Express standard.  PCI Express, which was first brought to market with Intel's 900 series of chipsets back in June, is a serial point-to-point communications link for graphics and data, that offers much more bandwidth than AGP 8X and the aging parallel PCI bus.  For example, when compared to AGP 8X, which offers a peak bandwidth of 2.1GB/s, the new PCI Express X16 link used for graphics cards has almost four times the peak bandwidth, 8GB/s...

We've also got a review of MSI's X800 XTs. Read on and enjoy :) Old ... yet cool ?" @ OC-Service.com "When the new graphic cards are being introduced, their manufacturers often focus on updating the drivers for them. This helps those cards to achieve better results in games or benchmarks. However : it is often that the newest drivers do not increase the older cards' efficiency and even decrease it. In this article I will present those drivers for cards based on GPU with the code names : R200, RV250 i R280 – that... Read more...
