Being one of the most innovative platform around, we take a look at the ECS PF88 Extreme Hybrid, and the ECS SIMA A9S Platform Converter card. It’s back to the good old days where switching between AMD and Intel could be done without a new purchase! Click for more details, pictures, and benchmarks on this
INQ revealed that R520 core clock will be much higher than 600MHz+ and of course dual slot cooling solution is needed. Some of the cards have left ATI’s headquarters but R520 clock speeds are not settled as it’s a matter of yields. ATI will be getting in for a hard launch sometime in September time,
This is quite an interesting mod shared by our friends at HKEPC where they are able to unlock the SLI capability on the nForce4-4x chipset. As we know, nForce4-4x chipset, the value version of nForce4 Ultra/SLI is often used by board makers for their inexpensive AMD motherboards that usually sports single PCI-E x16 slot. Using
The motherboard manufacturers have just received RS482 chipsets from ATI for mass production and this chipset is meant to fight against NVIDIA nForce 4 series for AMD platform. RS482 has the same features set as the RS480 chipset but it is built on a finer 0.11 micron process on FC-BGA package. It is priced at
OCZ today announced the release of the OCZ DDR PC-4800 Platinum Elite Edition (EE) which utilizes classic Samsung TCCD ICs.

INQ reports that ATI is getting their Crossfire boards, drivers and graphics cards ready for release sometime in August and this must happen before R520 arrives in late August.. Some board makers opt to stick with ULi Southbridge for their Crossfire boards instead of ATI’s. As we have reported previously, it is possible for budget
During the Semicon West trade show, ASML Holding NV, Canon Inc. and Nikon Corp. separately tipped their roadmaps for immersion lithography. The three companies are racing each other to develop 193-nm systems with hyper numerical apertures (NA) of 1.3 for use in chip designs at 45-nm and below. Nikon disclosed some details about its next-generation
VR-Zone has learned that the upcoming GeForce 7800 GT will be 20 pipes instead of 24 pipes as intially reported. The vertex shader could probably stay at 8 and ROP at 16. The core clock for 7800GT is 400MHz instead of 335MHz initially thought. It will be interesting to see if the 4 hidden pipes
