Mobile phones will undergo a dramatic transformation over the next few years, incorporating more powerful processors and more storage, as well as new technologies. By 2010 or so, handsets will use flexible or holographic displays and could have processors that run at clock speeds up to 5GHz. In addition, they may pack up to 10GB
Graphics accelerators are getting hotter without a doubt. From ISA to PCI to AGP and now, PCIe, we’re seeing graphics accelerators supplied with gargantuan cooling compared to that of the last generation. Auxillary power has gone from a few amps off the 12V rail, to nearly tens of amps. Now, we’re just about to witness
What do you do when you have a pair of EVGA 8800GTX ACS3 Edition? Do some High Def Gaming with all eye candy smooth as silk? Or would you prefer to play with some overclocking and churn out some mad frame rates?? All you want here… Cooling, Voltage Mods, the works!
We have previously reported on two new sockets for Nehalem CPUs in 2008 and this time round we will take comparative look at the new sockets offerings from Intel and AMD. Socket B is LGA1366 where the extra contact pads is due to the integrated memory controller on the CPU and AM3 is most likely
Shamino is toying around with some EVGA 8800GTX ACS3 cards and the latest test run on a single card left with with an amazing score of 17,597 3DMark06!
