HD 4870 1024MB Golden Sample runs 25MHz over stock at 775MHz on the GPU and 100MHz faster for the memory clock, effectively 4,000MHz when you push the Turbo button. That is enough speed to notice an improvement over the basic HD4870 and the non-standard cooling solution did help with the heat. The increase in performance does come at an increase in price, on high enough that bit-tech would not really recommend this card as a good value, especially w
A custom cooled 9800 GT
The 9800 GT is based on the aged-yet-powerful G92 GPU from NVIDIA that has seen life on the shelf for well over a year now. The new ASUS EN9800 GT Matrix card gives the 9800 GT a face lift with custom cooling and over-spec clock rates.

If you are pondering picking up a pair of the new HD4850X2's as opposed to a single HD4780X2, you may want to visit Tweaktown. They tested a pair in Crossfire and the results were not exactly encouraging. There were some games which saw an improvement, but more saw the performance unchanged or even slightly degraded. There is a good chance that updated drivers and game patches will at least ensure the experience is the same, but you may prefer to go with a m

We have been talking about NVIDIA's 3D technology for a while now as it has been on display in one form or another for over a year. At the NVISION08 conference this year we got our hands on a near final version of the active glasses technology as well as Mitsubishi TVs and Viewsonic monitors that ran at the required 120 Hz rate. According to Digitimes the glasses are just about ready, the drivers are as well but the lack of any low cost and widely available displays is holding up the process a bit.

Yeah, me too. Tough though - someone at Microsoft apparently has a stick up their ass and doesn't approve of the technology. According to Engadget, Microsoft's Windows 7 will not offer native support for the technology and in fact dismisses all of it as "unstab
