- XGI at Tom's Hardware

Tom's Hardware is one of the first websites I've seen to offer a full preview (with benchmarks) of XGI's upcoming Volari Duo V8 graphics card. For such a new card with un-tweaked drivers, it's not performing too badly at all.

The Volari Duo V8 Ultra leaves us with a very mixed first impression. Despite the prototype status of our sample and its driver, the card was able to produce some very respectable results in some areas. These highlights are clouded by the problems with texture filtering and the stark performance drop-offs in some benchmarks and games.

- WaterCooled ABIT SFF

TweakUP in Demark, the website which once ripped our website design like a few others, has posted an article talking about ABIT's new SFF called DigiDice but with a bit of a difference. They added some watercooling to the mix to make things even more exciting. The article is in another language but the images should be enough for you to tell what's going on.

We reviewed the ABIT DigiDice barebone system last week as the first in Denmark. After the review i startet work on the project of watercool the system with internal watercooling. A tough plan to make, but I did it, and now a review/guide in danish of the First WaterCooled ABIT DigiDice barebone system ever.
