- Actual 54Mbit wireless from D-Link

 

After my first column yesterday entitled, "What's up with 802.11G?", Michael from D-Link contacted us and let us know about the release of their new 108Mbit wireless gear based on the 802.11G standard which offers true 54Mbit wireless LAN through a tweaked firmware update. Good stuff!

Irvine, CA, October 13, 2003 - D-Link, the global leader in the design and development of broadband, communications and connectivity technologies for the digital home and the small to medium business market segments, today released a revolutionary performance and interoperability upgrade firmware for its high-performance D-Link Xtreme G wireless networking line of products that deliver 108Mbps bandwidth in the 2.4GHz frequency range.

- nForce3 120 Preview

 

Matt over at 3DGPU has posted a short preview of nVidia's nForce3 120 product which offers near desktop level graphics to upcoming Ultra Portable Computers.

 

If there's one area that gamers like to go into, it's mobile gaming. The Gameboy demonstrated that gamers on the go love to have the capability to have fun, and be the envy of the bored guy next to you. Certainly being able to play the latest game while on a flight from New York to Tokyo is the ultimate time-passer, and what better way to do it with all the latest 3D bells and whistles, while still being able to play for hours on end without worrying about the battery dying due to all the juice being used up?

 

NVIDIA feels the same way. After all they help bring about the revolution of mobile gaming, producing powerful 3D chipsets for powerful notebooks, while utilizing the least amount of power to do it, thus enabling a longer fun gameplay experience. Now they're introducing the next step in bringing pure gaming to the mobile masses, and today we're going to introduce to you the nForce3 120 from NVIDIA.
