Good morning folks. There's lots of news flowing in today, some of it due in part to yesterday's announcement that Apple will be using Intel processors in the not so distant future. There's also a full compliment of hardware news in the HH in-box, so we've got plenty of good stuff to keep you busy this morning.  In fact, let me get right to it - I've got to pack a bag and catch a plane to San Fran to meet up with the crew at NVIDIA...  Picking up the pieces: John Siracusa mourns the Power PC @ ARS: "A lot of people are excited about the prospect of a future Apple without the dark cloud of CPU uncertainty over its head.

Tonight's serving includes a little bit of everything. Another item I'll throw into the mix, is a possible roadmap of upcoming NVIDIA Chipsets, check it out. Goodnight folks! Shuttle SB83G5C Media Center XPC @ t-break | Image "The two drive bays and the front panel are all concealed making the look consistent and elegant. The front also houses the VFD display which is a two line display with the top line showing icons of the currently used function and the bottom line showing text such as the time or the temperature of your XPC. We must say that the VFD display gels real well with the mirror finish giving it a somewhat Sony floating glass touch." LiteOn SOHW-1693S DVD Writer @ Techniz... Read more...
Hey folks, we get the evening news all ready for ya. Recently, information about Nvidia's G70 has been circulating around the net. Josh at PenStar Systems attempts to pick out the truth from the sea of rumors, so check out what Nvidia's next offering might offer. Swiftech MCP-350 & PolarFLO TT Pumps Review @ GruntvillE.com | Image "Now many would say that this design, with the inlet and outlet facing the same direction, does not make sense. The water comes up and then has to make a 90 degree turn to go out. Why did they design it like that? Wouldn't the performance be even better if it went straight out? The answers are actually quite simple. The design decision was made because this... Read more...

Hey folks, we have a few video card reviews for you tonight. In addition to the ones listed below, make sure to check out Robert's review of the MSI GeForce NX6800GT-T2D256E. Goodnight! HIS X850XT IceQII Platinum Edition and X850XT IceQII Turbo AGP @ Rage3D "Both the X850XT-PE and X850XT come with respectable bundles. The only difference between the bundles are the X850XT comes with a CD that contains HIS' iTurbo utility and a DVD containing bonus software and games. The X850XT-PE doesn't need the iTurbo software so that's not included, but for some reason it also doesn't include the bonus DVD. It does however include a PowerDVD 6 CD."

I heard it from the mailbox: "Gigabyte has released 5 new bios files that add support for the E stepping of the new Athlon 64 Venice and Sempron Paris core". And there is now another chapter in the recent story of large companies and lost information... Time Warner announced today that they have lost data on 600,000 current, and former employes. Why is this happening so much? I still have music CD's I bought in 1995. Anyway folks, good night :) Gigabyte X700 Video Card @ motherboards.org "The first thing I noticed upon opening the box of the card was the cooling. Gigabyte installed a heat sink covering the VPU and a small portion of the PCB instead of a cooling fan and heat sink... Read more...
AMD's dual-core Opteron processors reviewed at TR: "We've had a pair of dual-core Opteron processors on the test bench for some time now, and we're pleased to report some rather impressive results. AMD's dual-core design is something more than just a pair of CPUs glued together on a single piece of silicon, and this design choice yields a performance dividend. Keep reading to see how the new Opteron 275 stacks up against its Opteron predecessors and against Intel's latest "Nocona" Xeons. We also have a head-to-head battle of single-socket, dual-core workstation processors: the Opteron 175 versus the Pentium Extreme Edition 840." Gigabyte Radeon X800 (GV-RX80256D) @ Bjorn3D:...

Thermaltake K450 (CL-P0075) AMD Athlon 64 Heatpipe Cooler @ Bjorn3D "The first time I heard about the Thermaltake K450 heatsink was when I started my search for a CPU cooler for my Athlon 64 FX 55 in my SLI system. The problem I had was that the heatsink that was sent to me for my FX 55 was not meant for that CPU. I found this out by seeing my FX 55... Read more...

It seems that today's mid and high-end video cards are coming with increasingly more creative cooling solutions.  Lately, large, quiet fans are becoming more popular as seen with Abit's OTES, HIS's IceQ II and Sapphire's Lethal Cooling.  All of these options aim to keep a video card cool under load while minimizing fan noise, and in some cases, making it virtually non-existent.  There are trade offs to these designs, however, such as the occupation of a second slot, but often times the upside is a direct exhausting of warm air out of the case, lowering overall case temperatures.  In the end, the benefits outweigh the drawbacks and the end result can be both cool and quiet,...

I need one of these :) Superpower XP03P Gaming Case Review @ XYZ Computing "If you have not heard of Superpower before, don't be embarrassed. Though they have been around since 1986 they are certainly not the most popular enclosure manufacturer on the market. In fact, if you are not careful you may just miss them completely. This review will be taking a look at their XP03 series case, their "Gamer PC Case". Let's see if Superpower is a name to remember or if it should stay under the radar for a few more years..."...
