Iwill ZPC64, Creative Xtreme Fidelity, Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW and More!
"We have been testing Iwill boards since their early VIA Socket 462 offerings, and to tell you the truth we were a bit surprised to see them jump into the small form factor crowd. They did with a lineup that has certainly been different than just the normal bread box style solution. Amongst their most interesting offerings is the very small ZPC64 which at a mere 75mm wide still manages to fit a power AGP video card in it. Before we get to our testing of the ZPC64 lets look at the full specifications."
"It's been quite a while since we have seen any major activity in the sound card arena. It was around 15 years ago that Creative came out with the first SoundBlaster product and completely changed the way we experienced audio on our computers. Since then, SoundBlaster has gone through multiple iterations and has been improved numerous times, but even the most recent sound cards are based on a platform derived from the original SoundBlaster Live! which debuted approximately seven years ago. In the meantime, motherboard and chipset manufacturers have completely revolutionized integrated audio for the most budget conscious users."
What can be better than a Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1" wide screen LCD monitor? How about two Dell UltraSharp 2005FPW 20.1" wide screen LCD monitors? Reviewing just one 2005FPW wasn't good enough. We needed two to experience the full potential of wide screen productively. The above photo shows the dual setup running at 3360 x 1050 resolution - enough to place three 1024 x 768 windows side by side and still leave space for the instant messaging window!
"These cards run at roughly 10% higher clock speeds compared to "standard" 7800 GTX cards, and match the speeds of eVGA's new "K.O Edition" GTX cards, without having to resort to large, fancy cooling systems. We grabbed a pair of these cards and tested them in single and SLI modes against other high-end cards to see how the higher clock speeds help."
