HWSecrets have a USB flash drive roundup. This time we brought five new models from Geil (David 100), Kingmax (Super Stick), Kingston (DataTraveller Elite and DataTraveller U3 Smart) and OCZ (Rally) and added them to our previous roundup, so we are comparing nine different USB flash drives.

aCe spotted this 7600GT shootout on VR-Zone. Today, we will be taking a look at seven different 7600GT graphics cards from six different manufacturers.

Phoronix have a GPU showdown in the newly-released Linux port of "X2 - The Threat". Today at Phoronix, we are performing a GPU showdown with a handful of popular graphics cards to see what reigns supreme as well as looking at what will be required to appropriately run the game with Linux.

3DVelocity compared LightScribe and LabelFlash, both technologies for burning labels onto disks.

Tech-Report looked at S3's MultiChrome dual-GPU technology. Like ATI and NVIDIA, S3 would be introducing a multi-card graphics capability, dubbed MultiChrome.
