Nearly everyone in the industry is familiar with the epic saga involving Infinium Labs suing HardOCP for this article outlining the facts behind the upcoming Phantom console.

A few months and obscene amounts of cash later, Infinium Labs has motioned to relent all of Kyle's claims.

"The GeForce 6600 video card was initially released as a PCI-Express video card. Recently Nvidia released an AGP version of the 6600 for those who have not made the leap to the new bus type. Nvidia places the 6600 series in the performance category while the biggest and baddest 6800 is in the enthusiast category. Currently there are two models of the 6600 line, the regular 6600 and 6600GT which is faster than the regular 6600.

M28 is derived from R423 - both of these cores are architecturally, and performance configuration wise, the same but R420 is built for AGP graphics
whilst R423 is built for PCI Express.

Auphan Online has put up a review of the OCZ DDR Booster. All of you overclockers out there might want to check out the review here.
"Us overclockers have had many great tools added to our arsenal in the last couple years. We've had great CPU's like the Athlon XP-M, the P4 2.4c and most recently the Athlon 64 Winchesters.

If you haven't read my NVIDIA PureVideo article yet, it will probably interest you if you find video image quality important at all.

I was interesting for me to delve into the world of high defintion DVD and all the different standards that are fighting for dominance.
