Hey everybody, here's the late night update. I'm sure there have been many of you who have wondered just how much juice your multi-GHz CPU eats up, so Hard Tecs 4U takes a look at power consumption on Intel and AMD CPU's. The language is German, so you'll probably need a translator. Though the graphs on page 7 require no translation. Rosewill R114A Mid-tower Case Review @ 3DXtreme "I'm sure if you asked anyone these days what brand of computer case they wanted, they would probably tell you Lian Li, Thermaltake, Silverstone, CoolerMaster or maybe even Antec. But if you asked that person which one of those cases they can afford they might tell you none of them. Sure it might be nice to spend... Read more...
Good afternoon folks! Albatron has sent us a pic of their new device... the "ATOP". This nifty thing allows 8x AGP cards to be used in a PCI-E system. ATOP stands for AGP-To-PCIe and some information about it as well as a pic can be found below. Oh, and Designtechnica has pics and specs of the Playstation 3 which can be found here. Enjoy! Albatron's "ATOP" breathes new life into AGP-8x VGA cards   Your AGP-8x card simply piggybacks on the ATOP card's AGP-8x slot located on the top edge. The ATOP card is then plugged into the mainboard's PCI-Express slot. The only other installation requirements are replacing the bracket on the AGP-8x card with an ATOP bracket and installing...

Gigabyte's GV-RX80L256V graphics card @ The Tech Report: "Not content to let only budget cards bask in glorious silence, Gigabyte has brought passive cooling to ATI's mid-range Radeon X800 XL. The GV-RX80L256V combines silent cooling with the X800 XL's already impressive pixel-pushing power, and it comes equipped with HDTV output and VIVO for good measure. Priced at just over $300, the GV-RX80L256V could be the ultimate Radeon X800 XL, but can passive cooling handle a mid-range graphics chip running at 400MHz?

  Over the past several years, NVIDIA has not only made a name for themselves in the Desktop Motherboard Chipset business but they have also cultivated a profitable and highly successful business unit in this area as well, commanding approximately 48% market share in the AMD Athlon 64 based market segment. With design wins at virtually all of the major Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers for their nForce 3 and nForce 4 product offering, it was no great surprise when NVIDIA and Intel announced a broad, multi-year patent cross license agreement and front-side bus license agreement that enables the company to deliver nForce platform technology on Intel-based systems. Recently we gave you... Read more...
Good evening friends, sorry about the later post tonight, but, I just walked in the door from work.  Oh the joys of being on call ;)  Nonetheless, it is getting late and there is a ton of "special" emails to filter through so let's get down to business.  Here is your nightcap...  HTPCnews Exclusive: Uneed International 7inch TFT HTPC "The Uneed x15 case certainly is unique and fairly well designed case.  The touch screen was a great add on that really makes this case stand out from the rest of the market and even allows you to put your own personal touch on, as I did with the Konfabulator widgets. This is by no means an average case and can house just about... Read more...
Hey folks... anyone else living in hot weather right now? After months of horrible weather and teeth chattering cold, this 80'F heat is a bit much.

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...

  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...

Hey gang, Jeff.B stopping in for a little more news bits for you. Having a busy day myself, so let's get down to business. 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. They cheat the consumers all the time. We can actually kill them as our products are far better." Five Large P4 Coolers @ OCAU: "CPU core temperatures were recorded by MBM.
