Over the course of the last few months, the vast majority of news coming through the doors of NVIDIA has been in regards to enthusiast-class products such as the GeForce 7950 GX2 GPU and nForce 570 chipset. However, today the company is launching two new GPUs aimed squarely at the more mainstream price segments of the gaming community. Here, we find the GeForce 7900 GS coming to market with an MSRP of $199 and the GeForce 7950 GT which carries an MSRP of $299. With these two GPUs, NVIDIA is providing the market with a direct response to ATI's recently announced and yet currently unavailable Radeon X1900 XT 256MB as well as the currently available...

Hello Everyone.  For those of you that like to jump right down to the news, we wanted to let you know that we've just posted a new article we evaluate the features and performance of XFX's GeForce 7900 GT 550M Xtreme VIVO.  Here's a snip from the article... "As of late, due to reported issues with overheating and graphic anomalies with overclocked GeForce cards, many gamers are starting to think twice before purchasing factory overclocked cards. Some hesitation before buying the highest overclocked card makes sense, but XFX along with the other companies affected by this problem are addressing customers' concerns and backing up their products with solid warranty support."

As of late, due to reported issues with overheating and graphic anomalies with overclocked GeForce cards, many gamers are starting to think twice before purchasing factory overclocked cards. Some hesitation before buying the highest overclocked card makes sense, but XFX along with the other companies affected by this problem are addressing customers' concerns and backing up their products with solid warranty support. If you've lost some faith in XFX, you might want to consider that NVIDIA appears to be 100% behind the company. The only factory overclocked GeForce 7950 GX2 at launch was from XFX (the XFX GeForce 7950 GX2 570M XXX).  The two companies have a strong relationship... Read more...
GDHardware.com has a whole lot of 7600 goodness with their XFX & MSI 7600GT shoot-out. Performance is similar of course, with the XFX holding a slight lead. MSI on the other hand has packed one heck of a cooler on their card, which could lead to some good overclocking results. "If we had to pick which of the two is are favorite we'd have to give the slight nod to XFX. Between their better stock clock rates and double lifetime warranty we feel as if they're the ones to beat. Hardcore overclockers are going to want to snag the MSI card as its cooler lends to that demographic - or I guess anyone who demands a more silent solution will have a higher regard for MSI's double-tall GPU...

Getting bored of just hearing the sound effects in your game? Well if you've got the cash to spend, you could give the XGear Multimedia Gaming Headset a try. With a built in vibration feature, you'll be able to feel some of the effects you normally just hear in games and movies. As X-Bit labs explains, it's not perfect, but still good enough to have a fun time with.We decided to try out XFX XGear multimedia gaming headset that has a very special vibration feature implemented. Whenever you hear an explosion or shoot within a game or movie, the headphones begin to pulsate, which definitely adds immersion and realism to games. So, let's take a look at the mindquake from XFX!... Read more...
Hardware Secrets thinks the pre-overclocked XFX GeForce 6600 256MB DDR2 is a solid value for those looking for a mid-range graphics card. We thought so too, and even gave the card an Editor's Choice award a few months back."Nowadays the GeForce 6600 chip is located on the top of all entry-level nVidia GPUs (or at the bottom of all mid-range graphics chips, depending on how you look the market). We reviewed an overclocked model from XFX, called PV-T43P-UDS7, which comes with 256 MB GDDR2. Let's see how it performs against "normal" GeForce 6600 models and also against other video cards available at the market."... Read more...
If you're in the market for a powerful AGP graphics card, Motherboards.org has something on tap you'll want to check out. They've just posted a review of XFX's GeForce 7800 GS Extreme Edition. It's one of the fastest and most feature rich AGP graphics cards available. "There's still an upgrade market for the AGP user. After all there's literally hundreds of millions of systems based upon the old standard still in use today. The 7800GS AGP Extreme Edition is positioned to take advantage of the fact that the last ATI AGP high-end card, the X850XT PE is still based upon SM 2.0. One thing that the card has going for it is the availability. The 6800... Read more...
The gang at Beyond3D have taken a look at XFX's latest flagship offerings in a review of the company's GeForce 7800 GTX and GeForce 7800 GTX OC cards. With each card offering some exceptional performance and features albeit at slightly different prices, the review helps make the decision whether the extra money spent on the higher-clocked model is a worthwhile investment.Therefore one is left to forgo the faster (albeit fractionally so) model and recommend XFX's standard 7800 GTX as being the one to choose from this review. As an example of such card amongst the competition, it also remains recommended - one receives a high performance graphics card, well packaged with all of the necessary cables,... Read more...
The Inquirer has managed to get their hands on a new XFX GeForce 7800GTX 512MB graphics card and run it through their suite of benchmarks to see how fast vendors can push NVIDIA's latest flagship core. Armed with an impressive 580MHz core clock and memory running at an insane 1730MHz, it's no wonder Fudo is impressed with the card's performance. Overall, this is certainly an extremely fast and expensive card that warrants your attention if you can foot the bill.The XFX 7800 GTX clocked at 580 MHz core and 1730 MHz memory is by far the fastest card that we ever tested. We just think that you can not air cool this beast much more. At the same time Nvidia managed to have a very quiet card. It will... Read more...
Around this time last month, ATI made a lot of noise with the launch of their new X1000 series of graphics cards. With much of the buzz still continuing a month later, it's little surprise that NVIDIA is feeling the need to showcase something new. With their 7800 boards covering the enthusiast market, and the new 6800 GS tackling the mainstream, NVIDIA has re-worked an existing product to specifically compete against new ATI's entry-level offering, the Radeon X1300 Pro. The card we have for you today isn't exactly new technology, it's a GeForce 6600, but some modifications have been made to boost performance. DDR2 memory, as many of you may recall, was first by NVIDIA on their GeForce FX 5800. ... Read more...
Good evening folks! An interesting package just arrived in the New York HH lab that we thought many of you would like to see.  And unlike many of the other items that come our way, this one won't cost you an arm and a leg.  Check it out... XFX GeForce 6600 with 256MB or DDR2 RAM       What you're looking at here is a sub-$100 card with an 8-pipe GPU clocked at 400MHz (NVIDIA's reference spec. calls for 350MHz) and 256MB of DDR2 RAM running at 400MHz (800MHz DDR). No, it's not a GeForce 7800 killer, but for under a $100 this card is going to be an excellent option. XFX also bundles in a full copy of FarCry with this card, which makes its price point all the more attractive.... Read more...
Hawking Technologies HBB1 Broadband Booster Review @ Hardware-Review.net: "Getting every ounce out of your broadband bandwidth can be a daunting task and one many users deal with on a daily basis. Many people who use a Voice-Over-IP phone service or play online games experience some distortion or lower quality connections because of how their data packets are being prioritized, sent, and received. All of these programs take valuable bandwidth and leave each fighting for their place in line. To help broadband routers with this problem, Hawking Technologies has developed the unique HBB1 Broadband Booster, which is the subject of our review today."

Apple has admitted to a flaw that has left the screens on some iPod Nanos vulnerable to cracks. With about 1% of all the nanos that have shipped being affected, it's not a widespread problem, but that doesn't really make a difference if your one of those unfortunate few. Fortunately however, Apple has said they will replace the problem units. Now, I don't even own a regular iPod, I'm still listening to MP3s on my desktop. That seems primitive these days... stationary music is so 90's. XFX 7800GT SLI Review Posts @ Gamepyre.com "The 7800GT is a worthy successor to the 6800GT and sell at about the same price point. At the moment, a 7800GT outperforms the competition at the same price point,... Read more...
  Without question, it is typically far more interesting to read about the latest flagship $600 graphics card than it is to hear about a budget card's performance. Unfortunately, the vast majority of us doesn't have the luxury of being able to afford those high-end cards and must instead focus our attention on some more realistic alternatives. In the past, having a mainstream-level card would mean lackluster performance at best in most games with little advantages over even the despised integrated graphics solutions. With the launch of the GeForce 6200 back in December 2004, NVIDIA brought key new features such as Shader Model 3.0 and TurboCache to the entry-level gamer. By moving towards... Read more...
