CES 2009

This year I attended the CES show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now, unfortunately, with confusion and really not knowing what to do and how to go about it, it kept me from actually visiting the booths inside the Las Vegas Convention Center itself. This was my very first CES so, as always, there’s bound to be some problems. But I did get a chance to meet up with some companies that had displays throughout the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. These companies felt it was a better idea to set up their displays at their hotel rooms so they could get a better one on one with reviewers, editors, and other related sites/businesses in the computer industry. I met with five companies on a one on one interview. No related posts. Read More »

XFX GTX 280: A Preview of What’s to Come

  Bjorn3D will kick off our on-going coverage of this gala event with a detailed preview of the flagship of the line, the GeForce GTX 280 provided to us by XFX. For clarity’s sake notice we said “on-going” and “preview”. As with the debut of any new generation of graphical product there is almost always a portion of the manufacturer’s final vision of that device that is either immature or incomplete, and the GTX 280 is certainly no exception to that premise. We fully intend to go into great detail in this preview about what’s currently available and what you can expect in the future from the NVIDIA 200 series of graphical products. No related posts.

World in Conflict – Performance

Recently the game World in Conflict was released and this is yet another RTS that offers excellent visuals with lots of effects that all work together to bring your computer to its knees. We decided that it would be fun to see how different components in your system are affecting the performance in this game, possibly making it a bit easier to figure out what to upgrade if the game runs like a hog on your current system.

1333MHz … Who Are the Big Dogs?

  First, we were extremely curious why the NVIDIA 680i based motherboard which 60 days ago was the “holy grail” of overclocking lost so much popularity in the enthusiast ranks, seemingly overnight. Secondly, we were curious to see if the 680i as advertised truly supported the new 1333MHz standard and if so how it performed in a head-to-head comparison against the P35. For the record, this is an article for informational puposes and not a review thus we will refrain from scoring any products being tested. No related posts. Read More »

Overclocking the GeForce 8800 Series

  For this project I have selected the FOXCONN NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS as my test subject, which I reviewed here at Bjorn3D back in November 2006. Presently, the 640MB version of the GeForce 8800 GTS is the second-best video card available on the market. Gamers and computer enthusiasts alike have already speculated on how the GTS could be made to perform to the same level as the GeForce 8800 GTX with some tweaking. No related posts. Read More »

XFX 8800 GTX: SLI Performance

I thought it might be fun to do a short addition to the first review as since writing it I have made some rather significant upgrades to my test rig and also added a second XFX 8800 GTX running in SLI. Now that I have your attention, just a few words on what to expect. First, this addendum will only contain the outline for testing the SLI configuration and the test results as anything more would be a rewrite of the article I’ve already published. No related posts.

NVIDIA 8000 GPU/VPU: An Introduction

  When planning for this mammoth task we decided the best approach would be to prepare one additional introductory article expressing what NVIDIA® brings to the table from a technology, Physics, and general usage standpoint for each of the products we’ll being presenting. The article will be a consortium of facts supplied by NVIDIA® and will express no opinions, rather it will simply act as adjunct to the accompanying reviews. No related posts. Read More »
