Just before the July 4 Independence Day holiday, we broke some news that stated NVIDIA had plans to drastically reduce prices on their flagship GeForce GTX 260 and GTX 280 graphics cards.  Then a few days later, sure enough, the rumor became fact and prices dropped significantly for both products.Anytime a halo product like the GTX 200 series gets treated to a major price cut so close to its initial release, early adopters are inevitably disappointed.  After all, they paid a price premium for a product that almost immediately lost a large chunk of its value.  Heck, in the tech sector, such moves can even spur lawsuits from disgruntles customers.To show their appreciate of those...

As enthusiasts, we aren't too fond of the idea of running a PC with integrated video. Like many of you, we prefer a discreet video card for the performance benefits, even if it has to be an entry-level solution. Despite that fact, though, most of the monitors in homes and offices across the world are connected to IGPs, and not to dedicated video cards. We love the latest flagship graphics cards as much as the next enthusiast, but we aren't completely impractical. We realize that integrated video is more than sufficient for the majority of users who spend 99% of their time surfing the web, e-mailing, blogging, shopping or playing 2D games like Solitaire. Today, we are going... Read more...

Just in case you didn't catch the fresh link at the top of the page, we wanted to let you all know that we have just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, performance, and overclockability of the XFX 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition.  As is the case with XFX’s other XXX Alpha Dog Edition cards, their 256MB GeForce 8800 GT offering ships from the factory with a significantly overclocked GPU and memory.  Click the link below and check it out...XFX 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition...

By now, we assume just about everyone knows the GeForce 8800 GT's story.  NVIDIA launched the 512MB 8800 GT in late October of last year and touted a price range of $200-250.  But retail prices initially ended up being over $300 due to supply issues. You can bet that ATI was smiling a couple weeks later when the company launched the Radeon HD 3850 and 3870 and retail stock was available closer to MSRP prices. NVIDIA hit back, though, by launching the 256MB version of the 8800 GT and getting more stock onto store shelves. It goes without saying that NVIDIA wanted this 256MB part to remain closer to those original $200-250 price claims. You may be wondering what the differences are... Read more...
NVIDIA’s G80 GPU has been sitting atop the 3D graphics food chain for well over a year now.  It was way back in November of ’06 that the GeForce 8800 GTX and original 640MB GTS arrived – the first two graphics cards based on the G80 GPU.  Sometime later, the more affordable 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS and current flagship GeForce 8800 Ultra arrived, but these two cards are based on the same GPU that powers NVIDIA’s initial 8800-series offerings. Obviously, even though NVIDIA’s products still clearly outperform ATI’s at the high-end, it’s time for a refresh, if just to keep things exciting for consumers this holiday season.  The first glimpse of what NVIDIA had in store came a little...

NVIDIA is updating its product stack again this morning, this time with a newly designed GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB card based on the 65nm G92 GPU.  This new GTS features 128 stream processors, up from 96 in the original GTS, but its memory bus width has been cut down to 256-bits.  This new configuration gives the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB an interesting performance profile.  We’ve got a couple of retail-ready GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB cards in the labs from Asus and XFX and put them through the wringer with some current DX10 titles.  Click the link below and check them out...NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB: Asus and XFX...

Just in case you missed to new link at the top of the page, we’re writing to let you all know that we have just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features, bundle, overclockability, and performance of XFX’s GeForce 8600 GT Fatal1ty.  The XFX GeForce 8600 GT Fatal1ty is one of the few GeForce 8600 GT cards on the market today that is not only passively cooled, but factory overclocked as well.  And even though its “stock” GPU and memory clock speeds are already well above NVIDIA’s reference specifications, we found the XFX GeForce 8600 GT Fatal1ty to have plenty of clock speed headroom left for overclocking.  Head on over to the site and check it out......

If silence is golden, then silence plus overclocking is platinum. Hardware enthusiasts have loved squeezing every last drop of performance out of their hardware for quite some time. Noise levels are not a concern for many of these enthusiasts, but over the last several years, more and more of them have become not only performance enthusiasts but also silence enthusiasts. So, finding a silent, overclocked product is like winning a mini lottery. For this article, we have such a product: the XFX GeForce 8600 GT Fatal1ty. Not only is the XFX GeForce 8600 GT Fatal1ty silently cooled, but it is also overclocked. While a reference NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT has a 540 MHz core clock and a 700 MHz... Read more...
Greetings from rainy Taipei! Even though Computex is more than 24 hours from its official start, the convention center is packed with thousands of people getting booths ready for the show. We took a walk through the convention center today to see if we could find anything that would pique our interest.     One of the first things you notice when you get near the convention center is that computer companies are advertising in every place imaginable, including this blow up AMD sign on top of a shopping mall.    Currently, the show floor is filled with...

Hello Everyone. We've just posted an article featuring XFX's brand-new, relatively affordable GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB XXX Edition and their flagship GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition graphics cards. Here's a snip from the piece: "XFX's GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB XXX Edition sports higher GPU and memory frequencies, which will give it a marked advantage over "stock" models. In addition, we're also going to be showcasing XFX's flagship GeForce 8 series card here today, the GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition. Like the 320MB model, the GTX XXX is clocked much higher than stock.

Here we are, barely 12 weeks out from the initial introduction of the GeForce 8 series, and NVIDIA is ready with yet another new product based on the GPU formerly code named G80. The new GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB we'll be showcasing here today is essentially the same card as the original 8800 GTS, except that the 320MB model simply has half of the amount of frame buffer memory. According to NVIDIA's reference specifications the original 640MB 8800 GTS and the new 320MB model share the same GPU and memory clocks, memory interface, stream processor configuration, PCB, etc. The actual GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB card we'll be testing here today, however, comes by way of XFX and it is not clocked...

Hello Everyone. We've just finished putting NVIDIA's new $299 GeForce 7950 GT through the wringer, and have a fresh article on-line for your perusal. The card we looked at wasn't a vanilla reference card, however. Instead, XFX sent over a retail-ready GeForce 7950 GT 570M Extreme, complete with a dead-silent, passive cooler. And to top it off, the card is HDCP-ready and pre-overclocked from the factory as well for a bit of a performance boost. Here's a snip... "The GeForce 7950 GT we'll be evaluating today comes by way of XFX. In typical XFX fashion, the company has mutliple GeForce 7950 GT offerings in their product stack, the $299 PV-T71J-YHF9, which is clocked at NVIDIA's reference... Read more...
Last week NVIDIA officially launched the $199 GeForce 7900 GS, and jointly announced the $299 GeForce 7950 GT.  In our coverage of the GeForce 7900 GS, we were able to reveal the 7950 GT's specifications and features, but were asked to reserve posting any benchmark results until the cards were made available. Well, here we are only one week later and that day has come.  As of September 14, you should be able to purchase GeForce 7950 GT cards from your favorite retailer. The GeForce 7950 GT we'll be evaluating today comes by way of XFX.
