Following hot on the heels of the 7.10 driver that helped Windows users comes the 8.42 driver for Linux. Phoronix gave it a try and are more than happy with the results. Head over to check out just how much better you can expect to run things. It looks like AMD is on the ball when it comes to drivers, if not so much on the hardware side.

Arctic Cooling has recently released the big brother to S2 the Accelero S1, and for $20-$30 you can set up either a perfectly quiet VGA cooling system, or strap up to 2 fans onto it to get some serious cooling. Bjorn3D didn't try pushing the graphics card they had attached it to, as they were focusing strictly on the cooler, but when the temperatures are lowered, the clock speed gets a chance to go up.

The HD 2900 Pro was released to the world without any fanfare, almost as if AMD was embarrassed by it. Nonetheless, Neoseeker noticed and grabbed one to benchmark. On the face, the card seemed a fair match up to the 8800GTS 320MB version, but tempted by the similarity to the XT, Neoseeker tried overclocking it. They were surprised to see it hit a core clock speed of 858 MHz and 1800MHz for the DDR memory, and suddenly it became a whole new card.

nVIDIA has been hinting that the 320MB versions of their cards don't have much time left in the channel. That doesn't mean that they, or their partners, are slacking off. Case and point is the XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB Fatal1ty up for review at The Hardware Zone. With a core clock set 150MHz above stock and the RAM a full 400MHz above stock there is some serious competition for the 8800 GTX 320MB version.

According to the Inquirer NVIDIA might have knocked off the 320MB version of the 8800 GTS in preparation for the upcoming G92 release.
We knew that Nvidia was planning to kill the 8800GTS 320MB in order to make
room for the 65nm die-shrink that the world has come to know as G92.

If you like the CPU-Z application for your overclocking or informational purposes, you'll probably find the new GPU-Z utility just as handy.
GPU-Z does not hide its similarity to CPU-Z when it comes to the user
interface, but the job at hand is absolutely massive. There are numerous
graphics chips on the market in most insane combinations, discrete or
integrated, and so on.

Push the button and it goes faster, or at least that is the theory behind MSI's NX8600GT Twin Turbo. Hardware Zone reviews the card, at the normal speeds and with the Turbo button pushed. There is definitely a difference in performance, mostly thanks to the overclocking of the stream processors, but it does leave me with a question. Who is going to buy this card and not push the Turbo button?

MSI's RX2600XT Diamond has overclocked the reference 2600XT to
850MHz and 2.3GHz, a gain of 50MHz and 100MHz respectively. One of the benefits that [H]ard|OCP noticed is that the cooler from MSI is significantly better than the stock one supplied with other 2600XTs but the ATI Overdrive will still put a ceiling on the overclock. Check out the fastest ou

We have seen plenty of 3rd party coolers for your VGA, that sit atop your GPU and memory to keep the card cool and maybe let you get a bit more speed out of it. Hardware Canucks have published a review of a unique cooling add on, that should work with most cooling setups on several different cards. The Thermalright HR-11 Backside Cooler will keep the heat off of the SMDs on the back of the card, and any radiant heat that might be making it's way th

Matrox who have been making graphics adapters for decades, are most frequently known for their multi-monitor support. The newest DualHead2Go Digital Edition offers two DVI-I outputs, which can be changed to VGA with the usual adapter.

Have you heard about the HD 2900Pro? A new graphics card by AMD just released with the new R630 GPU?
Neither has anyone else, but The Inquirer found one for sale. It's clock is reduced to 600MHz, the memory to 800MHz and with a 256-bit memory interface.
It is awfully quiet over at AMD compared to the Intel's currently running festival for developers and enthusiats.

We have been hearing about Intel's Skulltrail platform for some time now, off and on thoughout the year. Recently here at IDF, Pat Gelsinger mentioned the Skulltrail platform during his keynote, pictured here below:
The system uses dual Yorkfield processors that are liquid cooled (stock and to be supplied by Intel) and has four graphics card slots for potential quad-GPU usage.
The word "SLI" has been mentioned several times duri
