We have the world's first full review and showcase of Asus' new "Extreme N7800GTX Top" Graphics card for you today.  This card comes equipped with a great cooling solution that exhausts warm air from the card outside of the system chassis and allows for much lower temps under pressure at the card level and even for the entire system.  We should also mention that since it's based on the new GeForce 7800GTX, it's killer fast... Right then, it's killer fast.  So we tested a pair of them in an SLI setup as well! Go see...... Read more...
When NVIDIA launched the GeForce 7800GTX back in June, most of the retail cards we saw were cookie-cutter replicas of each other, at least physically.  About the only things that differentiated one card from another were various clock speed tweaks depending on the manufacturer or the software and game bundles that were included.  Regardless, with the design elegance that the reference GeForce 7800 GTX offers, we were certain it wouldn't be long before the various AIBs brought out their own customized variations on the product. Although its PCB design is still very much a stock GeForce 7800GTX layout, the ASUS Extreme N7800GTX Top is the first retail board we've seen that incorporates... Read more...
Hey folks, I can't get back to sleep so I'm going to clean out the news box. Goodnight! nVidia GeForce 7800 GT Comparison @ GamePC Labs "Today at GamePC, we've compared two new GeForce 7800 GT cards which hit the market last week. From Asus, we have the Extreme N7800 GT card, and from eVGA, we have their e-GeForce 7800 GT. Both cards run off an nVidia reference design, but differ in terms of clock speeds, bundled hardware, and appearance. We test these cards in single card and SLI card scenarios against other high-end nVidia and ATI cards." ECS PF21 Extreme 925XE @ Viperlair "ECS have put together a very stable and well rounded package with the PF21 Extreme. It is very overclocker... Read more...
Nighttime news is here for your enjoyment. Also available for your enjoyment, is Jason's look at Asetek's WaterChill CPU/VGA/Chipset Power kit. Asetek has been know to make decent products, but is it worth the $349MSRP? Let's found out... Asetek WaterChill CPU/VGA/Chipset Power kit - KT12AT-L30 "Asetek's latest addition to their WaterChill line of products, the KT12AT-L30, is also known as the WaterChill Extreme Edition.

OCZ Gamer eXtreme Enhanced Latency Memory @ CoolTechZone: "Over the past few years, OCZ Technology has been pushing the limits of memory modules with its fine engineering talent. In recent memory, OCZ's low-latency Platinum Rev. 2 memory overclocked the highest out of the numerous low-latency modules we tested. OCZ then introduced its VX value line of memory, which continued the tradition of amazingly decent overclocking yields at an all time low prices. The company's innovation didn't stop there, however." Epson PictureMate Deluxe Viewer Edition @ Designtechnica: "A digital camera isn't a PC peripheral, so why should you have to connect to a computer to print photos?  Thanks... Read more...

Asus stepped up to us with one of the first third party Radeon X800 XL boards to hit the market after ATi's recent launch. We gave it our standard run-down in typical HH fashion with benchmarks galore.   Have a look-see...... Read more...
  Over the years, Asus has built a solid reputation for manufacturing high-quality products, that consistently match or surpass competing products in terms of both performance, features and quality. It is with that kind of backdrop that we present today's review of the Asus Extreme AX800XL.  Based on the ATI Radeon X800 XL VPU, Asus has a solid footing to begin with. The X800 XL is based on the X800 XT VPU, so it comes with the same number of pixel pipelines as its predecessor (16), but it's built on a more advanced .11 micron manufacturing process and comes clocked at lower speeds.  What ultimately makes the X800 XL attractive, however, is the more affordable price and lower...

Xbox 360 Sneak Peak @ HardOCP: "We all know that the Xbox 360 will be a gaming console, but did you know its abilities are going to reach far beyond playing games? The Xbox 360 has changed the Xbox from a gaming console into a lifestyle device." ASUS Extreme AX800XL-2DTV @ Viperlair: "Performance in our tests was pretty good. In all the game tests, except Doom 3, the x800XL did very nicely providing playable frame rates in basically all situations. Doom 3 is playable at 1024*768 with 4X AA and 16X ansiotropic filtering, but going higher isn't too recommended." Point of View GeForce 6600 GT Review @ Bjorn3D: "Being a reviewer, it is sometimes easy to forget that not everyone... Read more...
