Things are finally heating up in the graphics world at the mid range level, with the introduction of the HD3870 and HD3850. Not only do these cards signify a complete change in the way ATI/AMD names their cards, but they are also a huge change from the release of the HD2900 series. These 2 cards deliver some serious performance for their price range, with the 3850 capable of out performing the 8800GT in some tests. Check out the action at [H]ard|OCP, who test both of these ca

DriverHeaven has posted a review of the easiest way to get CrossFire up and running, the Visiontek 2600XT Quad. This card is actually two 2600XTs joined at the hip, with the ability to disable the second card if you feel the need. While even a pair of 2600XTs has difficulty keeping up with less expensive nVIDIA cards in gaming, ATI really gets to show off it's superior HD Decoding.
Introduction and Specifications
Asus puts a new spin on the NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT graphics card by including a nifty little overclocking tool - a dial on an external drive bay that also displays temperatures and frame rate.

This looks like it could be a coup for AMD's GPGPU area -- as NVIDIA has said their own double precision floating point hardware won't be around until mid-2008.

We know the prices of the 8800GT and 8800GTS are rather far apart, but the performance is not. nVIDIA has tried to remedy that by releasing a special edition GTS that has 112 shader processors, as opposed to the original 96, but still remains on t

Support for ATI/AMD graphics cards on Linux has been improving in huge leaps and bounds, thanks to the community that has been working on it and AMD for releasing specs to the open source community. Phoronix has published a review that may shatter some of your preconceptions about Linux, pitting Vista versus Fedora to see which can handle Quake Wars and Doom3 better.

PenStar Systems takes a more general look at the release of the 8800GT, not focusing on the card as much as discussing what G92 may mean to the graphics market. AMD's response is the RV670, which offers DX10.1 compatibility and hopefully will give nVIDIA some stiff competition. The flexibility of these chips may herald a change in the order in which graphics cards are released, for instance the release of the 8800GT, instead of a top of the line example of the next family from nVIDIA.
