Excellent video report from CNET's Rich DeMuro on the PS3. Great piece of theater as he whips out a screwdriver and takes the console out of the glass box Sony was displaying it in. And finally, someone remembers to point a camera at the screen the video game's playing on. Short answer: I want one!  ... Read more...
The second phase of NVIDIA's two pronged attack on the gaming and enthusiast community today involves a new family of nForce chipsets for both the Intel and AMD platforms.  The nForce 600 family of products is spearheaded by the nForce 680i SLI and 680a SLI.  Although the two products share a similar naming convention, they are in fact quite different. The nForce 680a SLI will be the initial foundation of AMD's upcoming 4x4 platform.  The chipset's heritage originates in NVIDIA's nForce Professional family of products, and its feature-set includes support four DDR2 memory channels (2 per CPU), quad PCI Express graphics slots, 12 SATA ports, and quad Gigabit...

Recently, we were given the opportunity to take a look at a preproduction sample of a new gaming platform coming from ASUS. Dubbed the "G2P", this is a robust new product that combines the latest flagship mobile components with a unique new aesthetic and gaming-specific features in one convenient package. Although we've opted to wait a few weeks so we can review the complete retail package the notebook will ship with, we've taken the liberty of posting some images to whet your appetite in the interim. At the heart of the ASUS G2P is a platform which utilizes a 17" LCD. The sample we were provided with features a 17" WXGA+ panel with a low 8ms response... Read more...

X-Bit Labs have managed to get their hands on the demo for the add-on for the popular game F.E.A.R and run it using the latest crop of hardware to illustrate what hardware will provide the best possible performance for this title. Using the Jupiter EX graphics engine and Havok physics engine, the title demands some significant resources for those aiming to get the full visual effect of the game. In short, one had best have a strong CPU with 2GB of memory and a dual-GPU solution if they have any intention of seeing this title running at 1280x960 with full FSAA and AF. Obviously, F.E.A.R. Extraction Point is tremendously hungry for graphics card's performance and we the better one... Read more...
This morning, ATI is launching the new Radeon X1950 Pro GPU which is based off of the highly anticipated 80u RV570 core. Beyond a handful of differences with the R580 architecture, the new Radeon X1950's most desirable new feature is native support for Crossfire. In short, this implies a sharp departure from the days of needing special "Master" cards and bulky dongles. In terms of performance, we've compiled a list of reviews to help illustrate how ATI's latest performance GPU fares against the competition.

The enthusiast gaming notebook has become an extremely viable and desirable alternative to today's desktop systems, which in-part explains why the mobile segment is one of the fastest growing in the PC industry. The latest crop of high performance notebooks are an engineering marvel of sorts, as they come dangerously close to providing the same levels of performance without the excessive bulk and heat associated with a full desktop system. Over the course of the last year in particular, we have witnessed the notebook gain further ground on desktops with the arrival of new processors and NVIDIA's SLI multi-GPU configurations on the notebook platform. As such, we now have... Read more...
There is an interesting interview posted at BootDaily (formerly GDHardware) in regard to DirectX 10 and what it means to the future of gaming on the PC. Lots of good information and insight into what's in store for us all once Windows Vista ships. "We recently had the chance to sit down with Microsoft DirectX 10 guru, Chris Donahue, and ask him some hard-hitting questions about his company's pending release of DirectX 10 and what it means to gamers and PC users at large." I especially liked how Chris side-stepped the question about which GPU manufacturer Microsoft prefers.... Read more...
Our friends at the Tech Report have a review on-line today detailing Abit's P965-based AB9 Pro and their 975X Express-based AW9D-MAX Core 2 compatible motherboards. As usual, the crew at TR does a bang-up job covering all of the finer points of each product. "Abit has beenon the comeback trail since its acquisition by USI, and we've been impressed by the company's recent AN8 32X and AT8 32X motherboards for Athlon 64 processors. Intel's Core 2 Duo has become the processor of choice for PC enthusiasts, though, and we've yet to see what a reinvigorated Abit can do with an LGA775 socket. Interestingly, Abit's most famous boards have been for... Read more...
