ATI vs. Nvidia: Payback is a beach

Following newly introduced Saturday Light Special, I’ve received an e-mail from anonymous source (yes, I know who you are 😉 ), linking to a YouTube video which portrays the fall of a cute little dinosaur named “G4saurus Defectus”. Pun is definitely intended, and personally, the world would be a better place if the author didn’t mention some of the things which ATI copied badly (anyone remembers the historical SNAFU patchwork called Crossfire pass-through cable… ah, right. Never existed), but the video is a laugh. Over the past several years, it looks like we haven’t seen anything but bashing of the red team, and now the

EVGA’s X58 motherboard is $299, not $399!

EVGA’s first non-Nvidia chipset motherboard brought a lot of attention and is currently #1 story on my blog with 836 souls that came to this site and read the piece. As the time of the launch approaches (Nov 17th), some e-tailers began to list the motherboard for 400 dollars. That would be all nice and dandy, but it is untrue. According to our sources, the motherboard is set to retail for 299 USD in North America, or around 280 Euro in EUrope. The $400 board will probably carry the name Black Pearl, and will come later. Hopefully this clears the confusion.

ASUS kills PATA and PCI standards!

Back on the INQ, I wrote about dangers lying ahead for AGEIA, Creative Labs and Bigfoot Networks, representatives of these respected companies just told me that their business model is solid and that they are indeed, future-proof. Well, that turned out nicely – AGEIA never took off because of $250 charge for a PCI card, Creative now exists almost solely on patent charges and selling off its own property, while Bigfoot networks made the greatest network card on the planet – and failed to pack it up in an attractive and future-proof package. The reason for this rant is a story on Xfastest.com, introducing ASUS

Nvidia’s new drivers will finally fix 4 year old “bug”

One of key issues with multi-GPU configurations is the lack of dual-monitor capability. Now, this is not a new issue – ever since SLI and CrossFire came out in 2004/5, we were promised earth-shaking gaming experience omitting the fact that more users have two monitors than they have two graphics cards. So, if you were a high-end user and had for instance, GeForce 6800 Ultra or GTX 280 in SLI, result was unchanged – second monitor would remain blank. Same thing was the case with ATI’s CrossFire. All in all, “user-unfriendly” solutions. A while ago, I reported about Nvidia making Big Bang II drivers, drivers
