Nvidia announced a trio of video cards a couple days ago. The new GeForce 9800 GTX+, 9800 GT, and the 9500 GT GPUs deliver exceptional graphics quality, performance, and application compatibility, along with support for NVIDIA SLI technology, the industry’s leading multi-GPU solution for gaming and enthusiast platforms across a wide variety of price points.

Anandtech get busy with Foxconn's Black Ops motherboard, aimed for those wanting the best or overlockers wanting to push the limits. Usually we can't wait to get boards off the subzero benching station as the effort required does not justify the end result; not so with the Black Ops. We thoroughly enjoyed using this board at subzero temperatures; it runs insane speeds with relative ease, leading to a truly exhilarating benchmark experience.

Tom's Hardware take a look at Nvidia's graphic card history over the past 13 years. This article will show you that it hasn’t been all successes for Nvidia along the way, and that the company didn’t have an easy time of it in the early days. But it also shows how two companies have managed to do away with most of the competition in the field of graphics cards for gamers.

HardOCP compare VIA's Nano and Intel's Atom processors. These are very different products with a surprising amount of overlap in their intended target markets. VIA's Nano will stretch from mini-notes and UMDs to standard notebooks and optimized desktop PCs. Intel's Atom processor will be found in small MIDs and will stretch into mini-notes and MAYBE some notebooks, etc.

X-bit Labs roundup a variety of Adaptec RAID Controllers. Today's comparison will be devoted to five Adaptec RAID controllers. We will test not only the popular Serial ATA models, but also the solutions supporting SAS storage devices.

Bit-tech have published a hands-on preview of Crysis: Warhead. EA and Crytek are actually billing Warhead as neither an expansion or a sequel to the original game, responding even to direct questions about the matter with the here-nor-there reply of “This is the latest instalment, not a sequel or an expansion.” In other words, though Crysis was announced as a trilogy, this second game is not the second game in the series.

Digit-Life compare Low-End Single and Dual-Core processors from AMD and Intel. We are going to review the slowest modern processors from both competitors: Low-End single-core AMD Sempron LE and Intel Celeron (Conroe-L) processors, as well as the weakest dual-core CPUs: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ and Pentium E2140. These processors are manufactured for a reason, aren't they? So, we'll find out what they can do and how fast.
