Described as the most powerful and advanced top-to-bottom line of Quadro professional GPU solutions in the company's history, the fresh range of Quadro FX cards aim to provide even more pixel-crushing power for industry pros that are "designing the next aircraft or delivering seven-day weather forecasts."Most impressive is NVIDIA 's ability to really span the gamut in terms of pricing. The new crew includes an option below... Read more...
When we think about what is perhaps the one draw-back that enthusiasts and gamers could point to with respect to an Intel chipset-based motherboard historically, it was lack of NVIDIA SLI multi-GPU support. Though you could drop more than one AMD ATI Radeon-based graphics card into a P45, X38 or X48-chipset based motherboard, for the most part, SLI was a no-go, save perhaps for a few custom OEM solutions. This wasn't too much of a problem for gaming purists that wanted in on NVIDIA powered multi-GPU action, since there was always the most recent revision of the nForce chipset in support of Intel's platform architecture; that is of course until the launch of Intel's Core i7 platform.Intel's fledgling...

Here at HotHardware, we have a special place in our hearts for companies that transcend the norm in order to better appeal to the small, niche group of hardware fanatics that we like to call enthusiasts. The end result often times is that new design innovations are also introduced to the mainstream, due in part to this focus on the technophile's requirements.  As such, when we saw EVGA's latest nForce 790i SLI-based motherboard, we had to get it in our labs to take a closer look at it. Today, we finally have the opportunity to present our thoughts and performance results from testing the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM motherboard (EVGA part number: 132-YW-E180-A1). The name of the... Read more...
  When we think about ECS and their product lines, we typically expect a budget-minded approach.  Solid products at reasonable prices that don't exactly wow the consumer, but don't hit them hard in the wallet either.  The ECS X48T-A motherboard that we looked at a few weeks ago was one of the first steps by ECS to change that image, although a few missteps with the construction as well as some overclocking issues didn't overly sway us to their new way of thinking.  Thus, we were a bit surprised when we first heard about the ECS GeForce 9800 GTX+ Hydra - a twin pack of high-end graphics cards consisting of two GeForce 9800 GTX+ cards combined with liquid-cooling. ...

Spore's rather draconian DRM, which besides being the already hated SecuROM limits the user to 3 installs and only one online account per CD key, has fostered extremely bad user reviews on Amazon.com as well as "protest creatures." At least part of that DRM will get loosened up soon, via a patch, according to reports. When asked by MTV's Multiplayer about the activation issue, which is mostly a problem because you can't de-authorize PCs, as you can with iTunes, for example, EA's response was: That will be changed, according to the EA spokesperson, who told Multiplayer that the current limit on the number of computers that can be associated with a single copy of “Spore” is “very similar to a solution...

All right, it's bad enough this 20-year-old has never kissed anyone, but advertising for a kissing teacher on Craigslist? We'd be interesting in knowing if he gets any takers, personally.I'm a 20 yearold GA Tech student who has never kissed. I have been going out with a girl online for the last 5 years and she's finally coming down to see me on the 11th. She tells me it's a big turn-off if a guy doesn't know how to kiss, and she even dumped her last boyfriend because of this. I want to make a good first impression, but I've never kissed before! Please, I need a girl to practice kissing with, nothing else!! Just kissing lesson - nothing more nothing less! Some have asked if I have terrible oral... Read more...
It hasn't gotten a lot of play, but Wal-Mart has launched a free Internet Classified service, as sort of virtual bulletin board for people to buy, sell, and trade all of their worthless... oops, I meant valuable stuff. Wal-Mart's funneling their customers to an existing web service called Oodle.com. The service doesn't charge the seller or the buyer and is accessible through Walmart.com, the site the company uses to sell its own products. Wal-Mart said the new offering "further connects our community of 130 million customers who shop the Wal-Mart brand each week."A spokesman declined to comment on financial details of the relationship or on the length of the pilot test. In the past, it has test-marketed... Read more...
Customizing your rig or morphing it into a different form factor has become passe. Or so says Google Trends. We checked out a graph of searches on "case mods" over the last four years and found that lookups on the term dropped precipitously for no apparent reason.Here's the indisputable visual evidence:  Why did the interest in case modding slow down? It's hard to pinpoint, but perhaps the hobby of tinkerers and creative minds has returned to the underground. What do you think? Are case mods still hot or is the trend above an accurate indicator of interest in the topic?... Read more...
