The GO3 Electronic & Entertainment Exhibition is being held at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre next Friday thru Sunday. The GO3 Electronic & Entertainment Expo brings to Perth the latest in technology, communication, electronic games, in-car technology, communication, education & training, home audio & lots more. … Entry is FREE!

Hynix Semiconductor (manufacturers of SRAM, DRAM, FLASH and other semiconductor devices) has annouced that they will be closing their US plant. The closure is part of efforts to shift production to more modern 300-mm wafers. … Park said average prices of memory products had dropped more than 50 percent due to oversupply and weaker than expected demand. Thanks Eric!

IGN Australia chatted to Chris Scholz and Graham Fuchs from Shaba Games, developers of Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. What we're trying to do most is -- again -- make the city interactive. To me the place we really wanted to put our money was "action -- reaction". As Graham was saying, if you punch a guy into a storefront you want to see shattered glass go up, you want to be able to pick up the things on the street and hock 'em, and really interact.

PC Perspective have updated their Hardware Leaderboard. Our HWLB is a one-page solution to finding our recommendation for system builds at various price points. This month the Dream System gets GTX 280s, AMD's GPUs make a return to the high-end and mid-range recommendations and the VelociRaptor pretty much takes over everything.

TweakTown have published the first of a two part guide looking at how you can choose the best speaker system for your needs. When selecting a new speaker system for your swish new gaming rig, PS3 or XBOX360, the choice can be somewhat daunting for the average punter. However, with some understanding of what is out there, things can be de-mystified quite fast.

The Tech Report check out Nvidia's nForce 750a SLI chipset. A lack of high-end Phenom processors ultimately tanked the appeal of Nvidia's nForce 780a SLI chipset, but its little brother, the 750a, brings the same MCP silicon and HybridPower trickery to $150 motherboards.

Tech ARP have updated their Intel Core 2 Performance Comparison Guide. Specifications are all well and great, but can you really tell how much faster is one processor from another? Both Intel and AMD are trying to do just that with their model numbering scheme. But with over 30 SKUs, the Intel Core 2 family of processors has become a confusing bunch of numbers.

Guru3D put the GeForce 9800 GTX+ in SLI through its paces. The first GeForce 9800 GTX+ arrived here like a week and a half ago, and although at first I'd figured that the card could not make that much of a difference, that proved to be a bit of a paradox. … The minute that review was posted I started receiving email, emails asking us to test this product in SLI and then compare it with AMDs Radeon 4850 HD in Crossfire.
