Hey folks, it's that time again. Before getting to the news, I'd like to direct you to Marco's review of the ATI All-In-Wonder X800 XT, which combines the power of the Radeon X800 XT, with the media capabilities of the All-In-Wonder series. Enjoy the rest :) Ultra Products XL PC3200 Low Latency Memory @ SystemCooling "Today we're going to look at one such manufacturer, Ultra Products that has just released their new low latency PC3200 ram into the market place. And they are doing it with a little twist, Ultra Products has specified speeds and timings for their PC3200 XL ram up to PC4200 speeds." ASUS 6800GT SLi @ t-break "One of the problems we initially faced with SLI was the... Read more...
Good Evening Folks! BW here, stopping by to let you know that Matt has just posted a new review of Leadtek's WinFast USB II Deluxe. This little white box gives users the ability to watch and record TV, as well as tune-in to FM radio stations. It ships with some decent software too. Click here and take a look...... Read more...
Years ago, when computers with a 200MHz Pentium processor and 32MB of RAM were all the rage, we came upon a nifty device that came pre-installed in a wimpy Packard Bell PC. This device was a PCI TV Tuner Card. Back then, the ability to watch TV on a computer was somewhat of a rarity.  And now, while there are many more options available, its still pretty uncommon.  However, users are no longer limited to simply watching.  In fact, there are a myriad of other uses for this kind of device. One addition has been the ability to receive and even record FM Radio signals. Today on HotHardware, we will be examining these features, and beyond that, we'll also be taking a look at the visual...

Hey folks, just thought I'd stop in and give you something to read for Friday night. If this is your first visit of the day, Andrew has reviewed the ATI TV Wonder Elite, so check it out. As for other news, we have an article on Linux Gaming, a look at the AMD Sempron 2600+, and some pondering of the age old question... computers: to build or to buy ;) Enjoy! Linux Gaming @ HEXUS "Well, Linux certainly isn't most peoples' thought for a games-based PC. Especially one being taken to a big tournament LAN party. However, by design or trickery, none of the tournament games at the event were out-of-bounds to my Linux machine, and rousing games of Call of Duty, Quake 2 and Unreal Tournament 2004... Read more...
Hey folks, I'm here to start off the new week with more news. GamePC Labs has sent us their review of the Radeon X850 XT PE, so if your interested, make sure to check out Marco's article on the same product. Read on and enjoy! Abit AG8 915P Motherboard Review @ PC Perspective "Overclocking aside, the ABIT AG8 is a top performer. It is slightly faster than the Chaintech V915P even though the two boards use the same chipset and RAM, and are identically configured. Somewhere ABIT has done some engineering to this motherboard that has given it a kick in performance. Compared to the more expensive 915P using DDR2, it performs essentially the same."

Good afternoon to all of you, it's certainly a great afternoon for me. According to FedEx, my Athlon 64 package is supposed to arrive today. With all of my excitement, I realize I'm still a little kid a Christmas time. The cold weather, the snow, and of course the new toys... it still brings back that same feeling. Though now that I'm older, I'm able to appreciate the family gatherings a little bit more, but the gathering of new hardware is almost as good :) Mushkin PC2-5300 vs. Corsair PC2-5400 review @ MetkuMods "With the latest chipsets there have been many new terms and technologies introduced to the public. In system memory this meant the introduction of DDR2 memory modules. With lower... Read more...
We've got NVIDIA's SLI for PCI Express Graphics on showcase today, along with Asus' ever fabulous A8N-SLI Deluxe nForce 4 motherboard for the Athlon 64.  Dual GeForce 6800GTs and 6800 Ultras punching out the pixels in a big way.  You've just gotta love it.  ... Read more...
There's a certain allure in being able to make the claim that you can double the performance of anything. All too often, overzealous marketing campaigns in the high-tech field have made a "theoretical" claim of this sort, all the while falling well short in real-world performance metrics.  The PC graphics industry has had its hand at blurring this line, as well, but the last new architecture launches from both NVIDIA and ATi have in many cases actually delivered on this bold statement as compared to their respective previous-gen product offerings. Another way you can make this claim without totally having to sling the snake oil is to pair up two of your latest and greatest products... Read more...
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...

  Good Evening Folks! BW here, stopping by to let you know that we've just posted a new review of Asus' K8N-E Deluxe Socket 754 motherboard. This board, which is based on the NVIDIA nForce 3 250Gb chipset, sports a very complete BIOS and host of useful integrated features. Click here and check it out!    ... Read more...
  Although AMD's socket 939 platform has moved into the mainstream with the recent release of 939-pin Athlon 64 3000+ and 3200+ CPUs, products based on the older socket 754 platform are still in demand.  While the new socket 939 processors have been met with much fanfare (and relatively high price tags), the older socket 754 Athlon 64s have proven to be a solid processor.  And now that lower-speed socket 939 processors have begun to arrive, the older design has started to drop in price, and socket 754 processors have become much more affordable. While socket 754 will eventually fade away at some point in the future, there is currently no sign that demand has waned.  OEMs are... Read more...
Good morning all.  Asus starts our day off right, here at HotHardware.com, with a new high end GeForce 6800 Ultra card that really calls attention to itself.  Asus' V9999 Ultra Deluxe is a GeForce 6800 Ultra with style, flare, a great bundle and the icing on the cake, a stock out-of-the-box overclock in its GPU. Come get some - right here.... Read more...
It seems that high-end graphics cards are always in the lime light upon the initial launch of a new graphics processor architecture from any of the major players.  Although there's a limited number of potential consumers, relatively speaking, for these flagship enthusiat-class boards, they pave the way for their more modestly priced siblings, in terms of setting the standard for the base GPU architecture and how it performs versus the competition.  We're sure many of you wouldn't think of dropping over $500 for an uber-class 3D card like a GeForce 6800 Ultra Extreme Edition or Radeon X800 XT Premium Edition, but there are some who will spare no expense, and these cream-of-the-crop video...

Good evening friends, welcome back to HH :)  With some new products rolling into the Canadian portion of the labs, this News Jockey will surely be a busy for the next little while. However, just because I live a busy life doesn't mean that I don't like to kick back with a cold beverage and a good read.  Oh my, would you look at that, there just so happens to be a bottle of "cold beverage" right here... Oh, and look over there, some news.  I guess this is a sign that it is time for the HH nightcap... ;)  ATi Drivers & Linux @ HardOCP.com "ATI's Proprietary drivers are not Red Hat specific, they are currently packaged in RPMs for convenience for dominant market...

The computer industry has been in a state of flux for the past few years.  As the market continues to grow and new technologies continue to evolve, manufacturers are becoming more creative with their products.  One of the most successful of these new offerings is the mini-PC, which has given the industry a nice shot in the arm.  While the mini-PC market has been become a staple for users who want to integrate custom multimedia systems into their home entertainment system, they are not the only choice.  As the PC evolves, and becomes more of a central household component, some users will demand more expandability than what the current mini-PC can offer.  This is resulting...

  Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe Wireless Edition Performance Anywhere You Want It By, Tom Laverriere February 5, 2004 Ever since its inception, the nForce2 chipset has taken off and never looked back.  It brings a lot to the table in terms of stability, performance, and most importantly affordability for the Athlon XP platform.  The latest revision of the nForce2 chipset, the nForce2 Ultra 400, brings with it all the same traits, but also provides support for the latest Athlon XP 400MHz front side bus processors.  Add a reliable and popular motherboard manufacturer to the mix, namely Asus, and you have a recipe for success.  Taking one of their most popular motherboards, the A7N8X...

  The Asus A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard Review May the 'nForce2' be with you By, Jeff Bouton January 9, 2003 Back when NVIDIA first announced they were entering the chipset market, one couldn?t help but wonder if companies like Via, Intel and SiS were looking over their shoulders.  At the time, NVIDIA shared control of the high end 3D Graphics market with no one, although ATi was poised for a long overdue resurgence.  The question was whether or not the company, who was extremely successful in the graphics card industry, would be able to carry that success over to the chipset market.  Certainly on-line media was eager to see if they were going to be able to inject new energy into...

Asus V8420 Deluxe GeForce 4 Ti 4200 Review A Ti 4200 For Gamers & Video Aficionados... By - Robert Maloney October 16, 2002 The Asus V8420 Deluxe is a bit of a paradox at first glance.  It could be assumed that this is a budget package.  After all, it does contain a card built on the NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti 4200 chipset, technically the "low man on the totem pole" of the three cards in the GF4 Titanium series.  A closer examination reveals that Asus didn't just give you any board based on the Ti 4200 but a faster and more powerful version than most competitors. Then they threw together a bundle unmatched by most other companies. You want games?  How about two full... Read more...
