The good news is that AMD will be launching a new series of graphics cards in the very near future ... the bad news is that the chip won't go into mass production until November, so it is unlikely we will see the cards using the new chips until 2008.

Gigabyte continues to diversify their product lines, this time with 2.0 and 2.1 speakers. InsideHW tries these speakers out and finds that while it is a good first try, the established competition does a better job. Still it is good to see the company is still willing to try new products, and if they choose to produce a second generation they may get all the kinks out.
