Albatron recently announced its new KM51PV mainboard based on Nvidia Geforce 6150, nForce 430 with nVidia Pure Video technology chipset. The KM51PV has a smaller, space saving micro ATX form factor. In addition, Albatron managed to squeeze in many features, including PCI E 16x, PCI E 1 x, DVI connector for latest LCD monitor, TV
You’ll never look at your PC the same way again, once you’ve seen a computer with Avivo™ from ATI Technologies Inc. Avivo includes hardware and software technologies that refine video capture and playback, and greatly improve display quality. Computers with Avivo provide much more accurate color reproduction than other PCs – they can display 64
Our SLS walkabout once again after going on hiatus for a few weeks! Read on to find out the latest happenings in SLS!
NVIDIA has filed a US Patent No.: US 6,942,521 B1 named "VGA Connector With Integral Filter" on 13th September. Interestingly, it is meant to improve the good old 15 Pin D-Sub connector and we will see which next gen. NVIDIA cards will use this improved VGA connector but more of the latest cards will just
ATi upcoming R520 will incorporate Advanced VIVO capabilities that includes H.264/VC-1 Hardware Decode, High Definiton Hardware MPEG2 Acceleration, WMV9 HD Acceleration, High Quality & CE-Proven TV Encoder, Multi-Vector Adaptive etc. AVIVO also includes a 10-Bit Display Engine supporting not just the 10-Bit Gamma correction but also 10-Bit Scaling and 10-Bit Dithering. AVIVO also support 16-Bit

SanDisk today introduced its first USB smart drive using U3 technology, a powerful new platform that enables users to store and manage their "personal workspace" — including files, programs, passwords and settings — on a tiny device the size of a pack of gum. SanDisk Cruzer® Micro smart drives will offer a private, securely protected
AMD today announced its sponsorship of "The 64 Second Film Contest," providing digital media enthusiasts an opportunity to invent and share digital creations defining the concept of "Waitlessness" in 64 seconds. AMD Athlon(TM) 64 X2 dual-core processors "shatter the hourglass," taking content creation and multimedia performance to an all new level. With the help of
NVIDIA is going to launch their mobile G70 to be officially known as GeForce Go 7800 GTX on Sept 29th and it will be available immediately on the day of launch. 7800 GTX Go is packed with 302M transistors and is clocked at 400MHz core / 550MHz memory. It will deliver twice the shader power,
Hardware Analysis has published some preliminary benchmark results on the X1800 XT and PRO but has caused some controversies over the net currently. We knew that the X1800 XT scores can’t be from the AIB partners because they haven’t got it yet and if the scores are coming from the same early R520XT Rev. 2
Developed to take advantage of its unique safe overclocking tool, TRIXX, Sapphire has just launched several exciting new models of graphics accelerator in the Sapphire RADEON X800 family. Silently cooled by an amazing new heatpipe system, the Sapphire RADEON X800GTO ULTIMATE 256MB is equipped with GDDR3 memory and has a standard core clock speed of
Sapphire’s special version of the X800 GTO is called X800 GTO² which uses an R480 core similar to that on the X850 series. The GTO² comes with 12 pipelines enabled by default but through a soft mod by flashing a BIOS, the full 16 pipelines can be unlocked to become a X850 XT PE. Check
ATI is pleased to announce the introduction of its Radeon ® X800 GTO premium graphics card, the newest member of the Radeon family of products that is designed to give gamers the ultimate combination of graphics performance, gaming power and value. ATI’s Radeon X800 GTO combines a powerful 12-pipe 3D engine with 256-bit memory interface
We heard that GeForce 7800GTX will compete nicely against the Radeon X1800 XT therefore we can expect their performance should be pretty close. There isn’t a need for NVIDIA to bring out their Ultra version as we learned. In comparison, the 7800GTX has 24 pipelines while X1800 XT has 16 pipelines and the former is
As we know, C51G core contains GeForce 6 graphics and it is based on 90nm micron process technology from TSMC. In comparison with ATi RS482 using 0.11 micron, C51G is more advanced and performance is estimated to be 5-10% higher. C51G has improved Video Playback capability.
NVIDIA plans to introduce GeForce 7800 Standard using the G70 core which makes it the third line-up for the 7800 series. It will have 16 pixel pipelines and 6 vertex shader. The core clock is at 375MHz and the memory is at 1Ghz. GeForce 7800 will be replacing GeForce 6800GT and Ultra but NVIDIA is
ATi has decided to go with 16pp R520 with their latest re-taped revision called A1023 so the launch of R520 on Oct 4th has only 16 pipelines for their top lineup X1800XT. We expect ATi to replace R520 quickly with R580 in early next year to better compete with NVIDIA’s lineup. The R520 Rev 2
NVIDIA plans to launch their C51 chipsets on Sep 15 but we do not expect reviews to come out until later this month or early next month. There seems to be some chipset problems at the moment and the motherboard manufacturers need to change the PCB layout so there aren’t many samples out there right
Instead of a bare PCB of the 7800 Dual card posted a day back, this is how the actual card with all the components soldered on will look like. The core used is 7800GT not the GTX as reported earlier and the memory is 1.6ns Samsung GDDR3 totaling 512MB.
