    Zotac Uses High-End PCB Design for new GeForce GTX 260 Accelerator

    Remind me again why do I need this? I play everything maxed out at 1920x1200 with my Radeon HD4850 512Mb.

    ASUS Debuts the Eee PC S101 Netbook

    Until I see the default for netbooks becoming a dual core Atom, 2gigs of ram, ultra-compact dvd drive and 6-cell battery, I won`t get one of these.

    AMD Expects DirectX 11 and Windows 7 in 2009, More in Store

    What do I need a new DX API for?! Have you seen Crysis Warhead in DX9 mode? Beats everything released in DX10 so far, except crysis itself ofcourse.

    Thermaltake Fanless 330 GPU Cooler Spotted

    When are developers going to try to make something radically new? It`s obvious that good ol` copper and aluminium won`t be able to passively cool anything with serious gaming power. We need new innovative materials, like.. now!

    HP Breaks the 24-hour Battery Life Barrier

    Now make it smaller with the same battery! 10-12" screen and weight not more than 1-1,5kg. :)

    First AMD Fusion Specifications, Hint Toward RV710 Specs.

    Too bad, I don`t see this getting into netbooks and UMPCs! Via Nano is also better than the Atom, but still do you know a single device using the Nano?

    NVIDIA Demonstrates Real-time Interactive Ray-tracing

    The REFLECTIONS, guys, watch the reflections! It`s about a ray-tracer, remember? Don`t look at the other sh*t.

    Intel to Debut Ultra-Fast 180GB SSDs Next Week at IDF

    I would be interested in such news when it`s about price cuts, not increase of capacity or speed ;) That would be real NEWS, not just some facts, nobody cares about. Come on, how many people will buy a 160GB harddrive for 2k bucks?!

    First ULPC Notebook with Dual-Core AMD Processor Out

    Everything looks pretty good, especially the size, but 2,5hrs battery life is pathetic! Since they rate it at 2,5 the real world value would be no more than 1,5-2hrs. A Cowon D2 portable player has battery life of about 50hrs!

    First Product Images of the Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 X2 Emerge

    This price is insane, I hope they`re joking or at least I hope that the prices is that high only in the UK, from where the link is.

    Intel Larrabee Capable of 2 TFLOPs

    Woah, since when is Intel planning on entering the video card industry with something more powerful then built-in GPUs?! And what`s with the design?! You can`t just stich 32 Pentiums together and call it a GPU! nVidia and AMD are way ahead in graphics card design!

    Two R700s Churn-out X12515 in 3DMark Vantage

    I am so glad that AMD is finally coming back to the scene! 4870 X2 kicks ass very hard! If it`s under $450, that will be my next card.

    ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 1GB GDDR5 Nude Shots

    Maybe it won`t in every single game, but the 4870 X2 sure will kick GX2 and GTX280`s asses in at least half of the titles. For The Witcher and Bioshock I am 100% sure!

    Diamond Releases Radeon HD 4870 XOC Unlocked Black Edition

    That`s one fast son of a bitch! I can`t wait for the 512bit/1Gig version.
