Palit overclocks their GeForce graphics cards
Palit introduced us to their new range of "Sonic" graphics cards which comes factory-overclocked, at a decent price. For example, the Palit GeForce 7900GT Sonic comes clocked at 550MHz core and 1320MHz DDR memory - the reference clock speed is 470MHz core and the same memory clock speed.
We would have liked to see this card use the same faster memory found on 7900GTX cards but for a company who has traditionally never really stepped outside of the square, this is a good start we think and we look forward to more of this type of thing in the future.
By the way, it is kind of strange to see RED GeForce graphics cards but each to their own.
Funky LCD Glasses from Explorer
Elvis and our friends from an OEM and ODM company here in Taiwan called Explorer have developed a new product which we think is quite funky and we're quite surprised this type of product hasn't been introduced sooner.
Ever thought of it being possible to watch a movie or surf the internet on your PC without any monitor or screen? Well, you can and as Explorer say, this product provides mobility freedom. The LCD glasses from Explorer use a standard composite video or S-VIDEO cable and plug into any source with these types of video output ports. Not only do you get video but also audio and we were surprised by the sound quality, which was quite satisfactory.
So, now you might be wondering exactly how these glasses work? Inside in the glasses (where the actual glass is in normal sun glasses) are two small LCD screens, each with their own adjustments for blurriness since with this concept, everyone sees things differently. Explorer had a comparison between an LCD TV and the LCD glasses showing "The Minority Report" DVD.
The quality is pretty good for a product which is still being tested - it's not quite ready for consumer usage but it is close. Remember to send us a set of the glasses to test once they are finished, Explorer!
