For those who have chosen an uncommon upgrade path or who simply spent every penny they could on their graphics subsystem, some of the results from X-Bit Labs multi-GPU benchmarks will be familiar.  For the rest of us, it is a bit of an eye opener to see just how multiple GPUs perform in three way.  The final conclusions compare performance differences between SLI and 3x SLI, 3x SLI versus 3x Crossfire and 3x SLI versus 4x Crossfire, and you can see that there can be a huge difference

NVIDIA might have thought it was all going to be rosy news over the weekend, what with the announcement of the Lenovo S12 notebook integrating the NVIDIA ION chipset, but not if this story pans out.  Apparently Dell is on the edge of removing NVIDIA from its entire lineup of desktop and notebook PCs.  If true, this could be very bad news for NVIDIA.  The Inquirer believes that NVIDIA's probl

The XFX Radeon HD 4890 XXX
is the overclocked version of the 4890, with a whole 50MHz bump on the GPU and nothing else.  Mind you, when Elite Bastards tried to overclock the card they manage to squeak another 40MHz out of the core and bumped the memory by 35MHz.  That

The ASUS ENGTX260MATRIX
might be an incredible value, dependant on the price tag that comes with it.  The dual fans allow ASUS to pump this card
to a 576MHz core with 999MHz memory, the maze of heatpipes that are underneath the fans certainly help as well.  What that translates into is performance similar to the heavily overclocked MSI Black Lightning Edition GTX260, within a few fps of the performance of a stock GTX275.  It is possible that a true GTX275 might have a bit more overhead when it comes to overclocking, but for those who would rather leave things alone

A unique 9600 GT

Low power and low profile might not seem like very important features for a GPU most of the time, but you would be surprised how many new PCs on the market today can't fit a standard expansion card. Galaxy is hoping to pin that market by offering a decently-powerful 9600 GT GPU without a PCIe power connection and with a half-height PCB design.

An interesting article posted over at c't magazine is the first to verify with Intel a more concrete release time frame for the company's upcoming Larrabee CPU/GPU hybrid.  Intel's Joseph Shultz indicated that the first Larrabee product release would hit in the first half of 2010, finally squelching the discussion of a late 20
