I've got a few video related reviews here for you to go through starting with Spode's Abode's look at the latest ATi Mobility Radeon 9000.

Laptops have notoriously been almost a generation behind desktop machines when it comes to performance, but for what laptops have usually be designated for (business use), this hasn't been a huge issue. But fif you are a hardcore gamer, a computer with a low frame rate can make you lose that edge that you need in a competitive situation such as you might find at a LAN party.

Overclockers Online is next up with a review of the ATI Radeon 9000 PRO, ATI\'s brand new low-budget video card with high-end performance.

As I mentioned in the specifications, the ATI Radeon 9000 PRO is clocked at a 275MHz core speed and a 275MHz DDR memory speed(550MHz). After some tweaking and testing, I was able to overclock my card to 300MHz core speed and 310MHz memory speed, which results in 620MHz memory speed thanks to the DDR memory.

Icrontic won't be left out either as they check out the Elsa Wireless Revelators and the eDimensional E-D Wireless Glasses.

eDimensional's package contains the E-D Wireless shutterglasses, a VGA dongle with IR output AND Wired output, One IR Transmitter, Longer set of ear pieces, the legacy dongle, for older video cards to get power from the keyboard rather than from the video card, and an old driver disk. These Glasses seem much sturdier than the Elsa's (I'll report back about that in 3 years though). The IR reviever is Identical to the Elsa On, just without the Elsa name printed on it.

There are also 2 driver comparisons featuring the new nVidia 40.41 dets.
You'll find them at Icrontic and BoogleTech.
