ATI Releases New Mobile Graphics Chip - Reuters

By: Array

Seems ATI has stuck the petal to the metal this month eh? ( Remember I live in Canada, I use "EH" quite a bit :) ). Reuters reports that they have released their 9000 pro mobile graphics chipset. One quick note, Compaq has selected the 9000 pro to be shipped with their new Presario 2800T series of laptops...

"ATI has long had a really strong leadership position in mobile products and this announcement is essentially the continuation," said Dean McCarron, president of Mercury Research, which specializes in the computer components market.


"They have some new technology with the Radeon 9000. This is them migrating that technology into their portable graphics product line. It's obviously an important step in order to maintain their position in the market."

Two GeForce4 Ti4600 Reviews

By: Array

Yep, we've got reviews of GeForce4 Ti4600 from a couple sites for your reading pleasure.


Firstly ViperLair check out the PNY Verto GeForce 4 Ti4600.


A rather unspectacular box encases the Verto Ti4600. I'm not too sure about the box image. It doesn't really scream "POWER!!!!" to me, but rather, it just plain creeps me out. I think the designers have been watching too many Star Trek: The Next Generation reruns.

And the second review is of the Leadtek WinFast A250 Ultra TD GeForce 4 Ti4600 from Explosive Labs.


This A250 Ultra TD MyVIVO is Leadtek's second revision of this particular model. Leadtek has added VIVO capabilities to this card, not seen in its initial release. Only dubbing the A250 Ultra TD with an added "MyVIVO." You will notice then that instead of the typical S-Video out jack, the A250 Ultra TD MyVIVO comes with a VIVO jack. You need to use the blue adapter, included in the software bundle, in order to use the VIVO capabilities.

By: Array

No, we aren't racing for the fastest lap or best fuel mileage. Totally different in fact but it has the same basic principles when you sit back and consider it. Anyway, the men from DDR Zone have a new article on slipstreaming SP2 to OfficeXP. Overclockers Australia also has a bit of information regarding the same topic, a second opinion is always good.

Well now you can, following this simple guide we will show you how to produce a pre-patched version of Microsoft Office XP that can be used for both upgrading old Office XP installs as well as doing completely fresh installs.

Leadtek A250LE NVIDIA® Geforce 4 TI-4200 Review

AMDWorld has a look at Leadtek's low cost entry into the TI-4200 family with a 64MB memory configuration and a heatsink of aluminum that you just can not miss.

Slightly confusing is there are two versions unavailable of the NVIDIA® Geforce 4 TI-4200, where one comes in the flavor and sports 128MB DDR SDRAM with a 250MHz core with a memory speed of 222MHz (444MHz DDR) and the other sporting 64MB DDR SDRAM with the same core speed of 250MHz but has a memory speed of 250MHz (DDR 500MHz). All other components are similar has to what is found on the NVIDIA® Geforce 4 TI-46/4400 series apart from the RAM specification again we see a lower grade rating on the specified RAM with *Hynix 64M(4Mx16) DDR SDRAM HY5DV641622AT modules which operate at 250MHz 500Mbps hence the core speed of 250MHz Note these are not the 2.8ns BGA (Ball Grid Array) type ram modules found on the NVIDIA® Geforce 4 TI-46/4400 series these have a specification of 4ns which were familiar on the original NVIDIA® Geforce 3 CARDS.

Transcend Radeon 7500 Review

Heatseekerz has take a quick look at a graphics card made by Transcend! The Transcend Radeon 7500, codenamed 'TS64MVDR7'.

If your looking for a card that has good overclocking potential, don't consider this one. But then again, this board isn't made for overclockers! I managed to run the core at 270 MHz, and the memory at 405 MHz DDR, but not entirely stable, so I didn't manage to complete the benchmarks. But I'm confident, with a little extra cooling (ramsinks?) you'll be able to run this card stable at those settings.

Albatron GeForce4 Ti 4600 Review

The GURU of 3D is st it again with Albatron's GeForce4 Ti 4600 video card.

Next stop: Memory ... the card is equipped with a luxury 128 MB of on-board DDR memory. The Ti 4600 rated 2.8ns (I think) memory is from Samsung. I assume it's 2.8 as when you look at the chip this also might be 2B (hard to see) which can be synonym for the 3ns model. When I took a peek at Samsung memory lists it seemed that this model was not included yet.
