Welcome back everyone!  It's your friendly neighborhood Italian checking-in to let you all know that we've just posted a review of Sapphire's Toxic X800 Pro. This oversized video card sports some major cooling, ships with a utility to dynamically overclock the on-board RAM, and has one of the best bundles we've seen in quite a while.

With all of our recent articles concerning NVIDIA's latest round of products, it seemed as if our analysis in the graphics space was getting a bit lop-sided.  Today, we're aiming to change that with a new card from Sapphire, dubbed the Sapphire Toxic X800 Pro ViVo.  This card alone could make up for some of the new mid range Radeon's missing fanfare.  From the shiny metallic alien-adorned box to the exotic looking card within, this product is definitely an eye-catcher.  Based on the Radeon X800 Pro VPU, the Toxic X800 Pro is a complete solution for both performance users and multimedia aficionados. Sapphire is branding this, as well as some other new cards, as the "TOXIC"... Read more...
Good morning friends, NJ here with your AM news update.  The Juice Fairy was very kind to us last night, so we have quite the variety of juice on tap this morning.  So, go grab a mug, pull up a chair and settle in; you are going to be here for a while ;)  Sapphire Radeon Toxic X800 Pro VIVO Review @ GotApex "The fan that gave the boot to Zalman is the Arctic Cooling VGA Silencer 4, in Blind Your Mother Orange. This is a larger set up than found on the older IceQ 9800 card, but about as silent in actual operation. It's also lighter than the Ultimate cards, and I found it's mounting to be quite solid on the card with no obvious gaps or any looseness to be found, which was a... Read more...
Good evening friends, welcome back :)  After a tremendously long day at work, I am SO ready for some shuteye.  However, before I hit-up the Sandman for some sleepy dust, let's take a few minutes to see what has happened outside the HH box since our last update...  Sapphire Toxic X800 Pro Review @ AMD Zone "Earlier in the spring, Nvidia and ATI updated their product line with their X800 and 6800 product lines showing a massive leap in performance from the pervious generation of cards. With some time since then, most vendors have had their cards based off those reference designs out, but that for the most part it is simply a bunch of look alike video cards that all perform the...

I know, I know.  It's Monday and I'm supposed to complain about how fast the weekend flew by, and that Monday's are the worst day of the week.  But I had about as full a weekend and anyone could have, and I was actually looking forward to getting back to work this morning!  First, we booked the reception hall and got our "Save the Date" magnets done.  I went out for a nice meal with the better half and got a few engagement gifts.  I also spent some time at the local computer show with Mario and to top it all off my sister went into labor and had her fourth son!  Nice, huh? :)  Needless to say,  I didn't have too much time to myself, so it felt...

Good morning folks!  What a weekend!  The weather here in the big apple was fantastic, the Fourth of July fireworks were great, the BBQ was perfect and on top of it all, I got engaged!  Woo Hoo!  Here's a bit of the story and some pictures if you're interested in knowing how to incorporate some "smooth-geekiness" into a proposal!  :)  When you're done, head back here to though, we've got a ton of news for you...  ATI Radeon X800 XT (PCIe) Review @ Beyond3D: "Comparing R423 to R420 we see that all the main characteristics of the two chips - process, complexity, configuration - are identical and this is indeed the case. The only difference between... Read more...
Hey All!  As we alluded to earlier this afternoon, the PRs have been steadily flowing in today.  I'm here to give you another sampling and hardware news and to let you know that We've just posted a review of Asus' Radeon X800 Pro powered AX800 Pro/TD.  This card ships with a very comprehensive software and accessory bundle, which even includes a webcam, and it sports a uniquely colored PCB.  We evaluated its image quality, and compared its performance to 5 other video cards, including a 12-pipe GeForce 6800 and a 16-pipe GeForce 6800 GT.  We used the latest drivers available for all of the cards and did some overclocking as well.  Overall, we have over 300 different...

  It has been a few weeks since ATi officially unveiled their Radeon X800 line of graphics cards based on the GPU formerly codenamed R420.  In our initial look at the Radeon X800 Pro and X800 XT Platinum Edition back in May, we found ATi's latest flagship GPUs to be very capable performers, besting their previous high-end product, the Radeon 9800 XT, in virtually every benchmark we ran.  Image quality was also on par with the 9800 XT, which is to say it was very good.  A few day prior to ATi's launch, products based on NVIDIA's NV4x had also debuted, and they too offered huge performance gains and improved image quality over the previous generation.  When our testing...

Good afternoon folks!  It's a muggy, wet day here in HH's New York lab.  It seems like Mother Nature is making up for the fantastic weather this Father's Day!  No matter though, I've got 6 video cards running through our benchmark suite in preparation for some upcoming articles, and could use a good excuse to stay inside chained to the keyboard!  For now though, I've got a healthy serving of hardware news.  Here you go...  Abit launches a new web site along with their new LGA-775 AS8, AG8, and AA8-Duramax motherboards: ABIT launches the AS8; 775-pin CPU, Intel 865PE Chipset Pentium 4 Mainboard FSB800, Dual DDR 400, SATA RAID, IEEE1394, ABIT Engineered.

Good morning everyone :)  Sorry to cut this short but, I am running extremely lean on time today.  So, without further ado, here is your morning shot of juice... Albatron PX875P Pro @ Viper Lair "With the exception of the lack of RAID, 10/100 networking, and a passive North Bridge cooler, it's tough to ignore the performance and stability of the PX875P Pro. If you're in the market for a Pentium 4 motherboard, and don't need all the frills some high-end boards may provide, this board is certainly worthy of being on your short-list given its cost." Sony VAIO VGN-X505VP Notebook Review @ Designtechnica "Using the X505 in a public place such as a coffeehouse or on public... Read more...
Good morning folks!  I know Jay was just here a little while ago, but the news is piling up today, so I thought I'd hammer out another shot of the good stuff!  We've got some more interesting tid-bits from around the web right now, and a little later we'll be back with some fresh content of our own.  So stay tuned...  X800Pro to X800XT Mod Guide @ PCUnleash.Com: <--- If you've done this mod, and it works, let me know!

While X800 Pro is now out at the market, many people are now considering the possibility that it can be transformed... Read more...
Good morning friends, N.J. here with yet another edition of the H.H. Times.  If you managed to miss last nights news shot, AMD just released their new 939-pin AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 and Athlon 64 3800 processors.  If AMD is your cup of tea, you won't want to miss-out Marco's thoughts of the new core...

Good morning all.  It's time for a little hardware news for this Friday morning.  We have a good selection of reading for you, so let's get down to business. Today, Bjorn3D has a look at Imation's 256MB USB 2.0 Swivel Flash Drive: "People lose stuff. Whether it's car keys, a five dollar bill or a favorite pen, we all seem to lose things we don't want to lose. I guess people were losing their USB drive caps too, because Imation decided to come to the rescue and prevent any more lost caps. Most USB drives (commonly called pen drives and flash drives) are very similar in design, but Imation's USB 2.0 Swivel Flash Drive takes a new approach." Hexus.net checks in with two major...

Good evening my friends :)  Things around the HH labs have extremely hectic today.  With two of our key members on the "injured" list, and the rest busy pounding out the benchmarks, the office has been humming with activity.  Unfortunately, I can not say the same about the news front.  I tell yea; the warm weather arrives, and a news drought occurs ;) VIA EPIA TC-10000 Mini-ITX 12V DC motherboard Review @ Techseekers.net " The VIA EPIA TC-10000 is a uniquely practical little board. Ideal for custom PC mods that are tight on space or use it as a car mp3/divx player since all cars are based on 12V electrical system. The TC-10000 looses little functionality... Read more...
