Gigabyte Radeon 9500 Pro Tidbit

Our contact at Gigabyte Technology in Taiwan sent us a PowerPoint document regarding the release of their AGP 8x, DX9 supporting Maya II Radeon 9500 Pro graphics card with 64mb of memory onboard. ATI's Radeon 9500 is targeted to compete directly against nVidia's GeForce4 Ti4200, and it seems like it will do quite well with its 25MHz core and 40MHz memory clock advantages over the Ti4200.

 

We'll have a review posted for you in the next couple of weeks.

GeForce FX Scans @ 3DGPU Forums

One of the users over at the 3DGPU Forums decided to scan a copy of the latest Maximum PC magazine which has a big write up on the GeForce FX GPU - what a shocker. The scans include great close up shots of the graphics card for those interested in this type of computer voyeur, hell I know I am!

 

Just picked up "Maximum PC" from the local B&N and saw this. Thought some people might find it interesting. Sorry for the split - would have been too big to attach!

More on GeForce FX - nVidia encouraging p0rn?

nVidia's GeForce FX GPU continues to dominate the news. The nVISION website has collected a bunch of screenshots from around the web of the GeForce FX in action including screenshots from games like Breed, CC Generals, Ralli Sport Challenge, Unreal and so on.

 

 

Then there is quite the interesting story over at the Ziff Davis funded ExtremeTech website which says there is an x-rated version of our favorite nVidia girl Dawn on the Internet, somewhere, unbeknown, to us.

 

According to an nVidia representative, a version of this demo does exist with the leaves removed. "We're bringing porno to graphics", chortled the exec, who wished to remain nameless.
