Hot on the heals of the official announcement of Intel's new dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 840 processor, we have more news for those interested in Intel platform solutions. Today, NVIDIA is finally taking the wraps off of their nForce chipset for the Intel platform, a chipset now known as the nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition. For months there was speculation that this chipset would be called the nForce 5, but because it offers essentially the same feature set as its AMD supporting counterpart, NVIDIA thought it best to keep this chipset in the nForce 4 family. The feature set of the NVIDIA nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition remains largely unchanged from other nForce 4 chipsets. However, since Intel's... Read more...
  Today, we're bringing you a Dual-Core Pentium quick take, on short notice from the folks at Intel. With only a few hours of testing at our disposal, we're attempting to make time with some level of meaningful analysis for you and hit Intel's NDA embargo lift time this morning. Would we have liked to spend more quality lab time on such an important launch event as the first dual core Pentium class CPU to ever hit the mainstream? You bet your CMOS digital flip-flop we would, but when hardware is shipped to the wild without a solid game plan behind it, in our gig you react or get walked on. So we did and here's what we've come up with. Read on for our first glance report of Intel's new Dual-Core... Read more...
Hey folks, how's everyone doing? A foot of snow has fallen, adding to the 4 inches we had yesterday, so hurrah for March and the fact that's it's not even half over. Well, I'll end with the sarcasm and get you the news, enjoy :) Razotech Blizzard Case @ PimpRig "Before I go any further, let me talk a little bit about the airflow design of the Blizzard case. It makes no sense at all. Both doors and the top are actually a huge mesh, but only the top and left side have filters. The front is mesh, but is mostly blocked by plastic. The only fan included on the Blizzard is a front intake yet there is no filter there." March 2005 Budget System Buyer's Guide - Socket 754 under $400 @ Mikhailtech... Read more...
Hey folks, I'm here to bring you a little news to cap off your night. We have reviews for the Demon 480w Power Supply, Coolink BAT1VS HSF, and a few more items.

Demon 480w Power Supply @ Controlled-Insanity "The Demon includes all of the standard connections you may need, the 20 pin ATX, P4 connector, 2 floppy connectors, and 2 strings, with 3 molex connectors on each. These are again, all pre-modded with nice blue connectors. If you have ever replaced these before, you will understand the value of having these pre-modded, especially the 20 ping connector."

  It's no secret that Intel has occassionally been playing a bit of catchup this year in the desktop and workstation processor arena.  AMD's Athlon 64 releases have recently positioned the company in the lead from a general performance standpoint.  Additionally, the Athlon 64 was the first processor to market with 64-bit extensions and processing capabilities, although there really hasn't been much if any impact in consumer or business usage models for the new architecture because there are scarce few 64-bit applications available, much less a mainstream 64-bit OS.  Of course that's something Intel will be quick to point out as an "I told you so," but you've...

ATI Rebuts Nvidia With Counter-Claims @ ChannelTimes.com: "Responding strongly, Suki Matharu, country manager, ATI India, said, "We can point out 100 flaws with Nvidia drivers and its cards.

In recent months, Intel's i915G/P and i925X chipsets have taken center stage as the premier chipsets for the Intel P4 desktop platform.  With the new "Grantsdale" and "Alderwood" chipsets came the next major shift in computer technology.  The latest designs employ the newest Pentium 4 LGA775 packaging, while bringing PCI Express and DDR2 to the forefront of the Intel-based market.  With so much change, making the move to Intel's latest offerings requires a little more planning and cost consideration.  Unlike previous chipset updates, the decision of migrating to the newer platform involves more than just a motherboard upgrade.  User's will need to...

Hey there gang, welcome back!  Man, it has just been one of those stretches where nothing seems to be going right for me.  The last few weeks I've been dealing with an ailing pet, who is looking much better thankfully.  Now my neck has decided to give me a lesson in pain, to the point that I am looking at the world with a bit of a tilt.  I sure hope this goes away soon.  I kind of feel like Ed Sullivan right now.  So I guess I will be popping the Doan's Back Pills and hope for some relief.  While this did stop me in my tracks yesterday, it isn't stopping me from getting the news out to you!  Here's your latest dose for today...

Good morning everyone. JeffB checking in to ring in the new weekend. Since I've started working from home, weekends have a lot less meaning than they used to, but I still look forward to them. If all goes well I will be snuggling up with a new piece of hardware this afternoon. Otherwise I think I will be getting out. Thanks to my latest addiction, Far Cry, I haven't gotten out much in the last couple of weeks. I really hate games that don't have in-game saves, but I will say that Far Cry is an exception. If you haven't checked it out, you should, it's one of the best I've ever played. Just be aware, this bad boy stresses even the most powerful systems to the brink of reboots. Little secret, turn...
