I downloaded this video from our friends over at nV News only a couple minutes ago. Remember when the NV30 reviews were released and only hours later all the dust buster type pictures emerged on the web? Well Steve Sims and company from nVidia have posted a three minute video which basically owns themselves - you'll see when you watch it.
I have mirrored the 4.6mb file on our servers for you all, grab it here!
First up I noticed talk of Doom 4 videos over at Warp2Search. Before you get too excited, users commented these videos are merely a mod for Quake3 called Q4Gladiators. Nevertheless, the faked Doom 4 videos and wallpaper are pretty cool and worth a look.
There are more videos than what is listed on the earthlink page, just follow one of the directories from the earthlink downloads and you end up hereMore information @ Warp2Search
Intervideo has released WinDVD Platinum. It includes all the great features included in previous versions with the addition of DivX playback, Dolby Virtual Speaker which uses advanced algorithms to replicate 5.1 surround sound over two single speakers and more, if the latter was not enough for you.
WinDVD Platinum is InterVideo's latest version of WinDVD which is a simple-to-use DVD player that combines all the features of a standard consumer DVD player and offers much more. WinDVD Platinum is the ultimate DVD player with advanced audio and video functions, not found anywhere else.More information @ Intervideo
Our friends over at Warp2Search have a link to Japanese Watch Impress with three MPEG videos show casing nVidia's new GeForce FX. They appear to be camcorder rips from an nVidia press conference of some sort with somebody explaining how each piece of footage is achieved through the new technology of shaders. The quality is quite good, so ensure you make time to download these for the archive.

Words cannot describe what I am thinking right now... stunned, I guess could be one of them. Anyway, I followed a link from our friends over at Warp2Search to the nVidia website (hmmm, that's a new one for today - heh) which shows demos and such of its new GeForce FX in action. You'll also find information on up and coming DX9 games supporting the GeForce FX and a couple videos which we had already known about for the past few days.
Power and performance, the two elements every gamer craves, are the heart and soul of the GeForce FX. Powered by pure adrenaline and engineered with a passion for perfection, the GeForce FX delivers cinematic effects beyond imagination. Its CineFX engine produces gaming effects on par with the hottest motion pictures. Combined with the industry's first true 128-bit studio-quality color processing technology, 3D worlds and characters are more real than anything that's come before.More information @ nVidia GeForce FX Homepage
Yes, this is for real!

Remember that website called Sharky Extreme, with the 25 page articles? Well, they have posted a not-so-lengthy 10-page ATI & NVIDIA Video Card Tweak Guide for your viewing pleasure today.
As today's video cards become increasingly advanced, the sheer number of options and tweaks that go unseen to the average user seems to increase. Sometimes these remain unseen because ATI and NVIDIA will often neglect, or outright refuse, to make these tweaks available with their standard driver package. While many of these configurable items can be relatively benign, there are still a healthy number of extremely rewarding (we're talking extra performance and image quality here) options that can greatly enhance the visual quality and speed of modern ATI and NVIDIA video cards.More information at Sharky Extreme
