We've been digging for a little while now as rumours have been circling suggesting that existing Nvidia nForce 680i SLI boards likely won't support Intel's latest 45nm processors.
Dan Boaden takes to the streets of Hong Kong with pistols akimbo and sets out to review John Woo's Stranglehold. Will he come back in one piece with good news or will the game prove more limp than a knee-capped bad guy? Find out within!
Boasting a 2-way, four speaker system and a cool compact design, Zalman's latest audio effort may be the new benchmark by which portable gaming headphones are judged - but the only way you'll know for sure will be by checking out our comprehensive review.
The MSI X38 Diamond is arriving next month will have tons of features in its flagship product, including a revised liquid Circu-Pipe heatpipe arrangement.
The latest P30 BIOS for Nvidia's nForce 680i SLI chipset claims to offer a whole host of performance and overclocking improvements, so does it give a new lease of life to an ageing chipset?
Intel is to keep their lowest Core 2 CPU, the E2140 a little longer and further drop the price! Bargain of the year? Quite possibly.
Yesterday Intel released five new Core 2 processors with 1333MHz front side bus speeds. We compare the new flagship QX6850 quad-core chip, along with the E6850 and E6750, to ten other processors to find out which CPU represents the best buy at the moment.
Matrox has entered the digital era with the TripleHead2Go, as it now comes complete with DVI ports and more. We find out if three-way is the way to go.
AMD CPUs on a 45nm process are set to arrive as soon as 12 months away, but by then will it be too little, too late?
