NVIDIA GeForce 4 Day Is Here (Part 2)

Well have you had enough GF4 action? No. Ok here's some more then but don't blame me if you overdose on it though. Or start having fits because you can't lay your hands on one just yet.

To complement the new GeForce4 release The Guru of 3D now brings you RivaTuner v2 RC10. One of the very best GeForce Tweak Utilities available. This update supports the new 2x.xx drivers and allows full GeForce4 MX/Titanium Overclocking !
Here are a few changes out of many dozens:
- Added support for 27MHz reference frequency to the low level hardware overclocking module. This allows RivaTuner's low level overclocking module to work with GeForce4 boards.
- Added GeForce4 support to the built-in 60Hz refresh rate fix for Windows2000/XP.
- Added fake DDR problem workaround for GeForce4 MX boards.
- Added databases for the Detonators 23.11, 27.00, 27.10 and 27.20 for both Windows 9x and Windows 2000/XP.
- Full Detonator 27.xx support.
- SoftQuadro scripts are no longer supported and will not work with the Detonator 27.xx. The reason is that NVIDIA has implemented SoftQuadro protection again (may come with a later version).

NVIDIA GeForce 4 Day Is Here

Well the nVidia GeForce 4 Series (called GeForce4 Ti and GeForce4 MX) reviews are coming out and everything is looking very good indeed from a performance veiw point with some astounding figures being shown. With things like Lightspeed Memory Architecture II, nFinite FX II Engine, Accuview AA, nView dual-display support, dual Vertex shaders and more make these video cards very desirable. It's probably better that I let the reviews speak for themselves as they would do a better job at it anyway but I do like what I've seen so far.

Well we've all heard of the problems that the Creative Live sound card cause a lot of people well it seems that the Creative Audigy causes "Squeals of Death" as it locks up PC's running either Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating systems. Creative representatives have classified the problem as "Severe".

 

Well most of you would probably have kept up with the VIA PCI Bus Problems going on over at the tecChannel.de for some time now but Legion Hardware has decided to check it out themselves as they were quite surprised to hear about this issue. Their VIA PCI bus Investigation (Part 1) takes a look at burst rates with a Promise FastTrak TX2 ATA100 RAID controller and two IBM Deskstar 61.5GB HDD's in RAID 0 configuration. Do go and check out their findings though and compare them to those from the other site and make of it what you will. They also have plans for part 2 of this saga and if you have any suggestions for them please send them along too.
