Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Mon, Nov 1 2010 7:07 PM CDT

There may be lots of news about the GTX580 - but at the moment, it's nothing but a rumor, and quite possibly a paper launch, whereas AMD have some actual silicon ready to go with AIBs getting Cayman chips right now.

Supposedly, AIBs have got the Cayman's - which come with 6GHz GDDR5, which means the memory clocks will end up somewhere inbetween 5.5 and 6GHz.

There are various other rumors around the web, but within the next 2 - 4 weeks we should know who has been fibbing, and who will eventually get the best launch and get GPU's into customers hands in time for Santa to come to town.

Huntkey has a new computer chassis that is aimed at the user who lives or works in a high radiation and interference environment that wants to shield their hardware from that radiation. The case looks cool in addition to blocking radiation interference from your gear and blocking interference from inside the case for getting out as well. The new chassis is called the Shield H405.

Aperion Audio outs new Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System

Shane McGlaun | TV, Movies & Home Theatre | Mon, Nov 1 2010 12:00 PM CDT

The thing that bothers me the most about surround sound is the wires that have to go to the rear speakers. They clutter the room and in some rooms running wires is very hard to do. In this instance, the user can opt to skip the rear channel speakers or they can just run the wires across the room and deal with the looks. Another option is a wireless rear speaker system and Aperion Audio has a new offering that needs no wires.

The system is called the Zona Wireless Surround Speaker System and it has a pair of rear speakers, the transmitter, and the wires needed for connecting it to your receiver. The speakers each have a 4.5-inch woven fiberglass woofer and a 1-inch tweeter. The enclosure is made from MDF and has a ported enclosure. The enclosure measures in at 9.8" H x 6" W x 6.3" D and weighs 15 pounds. The frequency response is 55Hz to 20kHz.

MSI FX600MX notebook gets switching graphics and more

Shane McGlaun | Laptops | Mon, Nov 1 2010 10:04 AM CDT

MSI has pulled the wraps off a new notebook that uses tech to help extend the battery with dual GPUs inside. The tech is the same as what NVIDIA has been offering for a while with Optimus, but goes by MSIs own name in this iteration. MSI called the graphics switching tech GPU Boost technology. The tech allows the machine to change from a power sipping internal GPU to a discrete GPU for more power when needed.

The discrete GPU in this case is the NVIDIA GeForce 310M with 512MB of RAM. The notebook also has a special MSI exclusive anti-scratch, anti-smudge raised totem seal coating. I'm not sure what that means other than the thing has a raised embossed finish on the wrist rest and lid. The notebook also has Cinema Pro technology for the best graphics for movies and video content. The screen of the machine is a 15.6-inch LED backlit 720p resolution unit.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX580 to launch in under 4 weeks?

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Fri, Oct 29 2010 10:04 PM CDT

Well! This is turning into quite the fight between the GPU titans, NVIDIA and AMD.

NVIDIA have had information slowly leaking out about their upcoming GF110-based GPU, the GeForce GTX580 for a few weeks now - but the specs and information are starting to get a bit more precise, instead of guesstimates.

For nearly 6 months now, the GTX480 has been the single fastest [single] GPU available - yes the Radeon 5970 is faster, but it's a dual GPU design. AMD had the market for Q4 2009 and Q1 2010, but NVIDIA have at least been able to claim that victory amongst the sour grapes of the card (power, heat, noise, delays, etc).
