- PCI Express Videos

nVidia have just provided us with a video presentation explaining more about the upcoming "PCI Express" interface. It would seem it's more so directed towards developers, however also talks about the history of the PCI and AGP interfaces. Needless to say, you may find this quite interesting. It comes in three filesizes as follows:-

- Small (23mb)
- Medium (34mb)
- Large (120mb)

- Creative Audigy 2's Platinum Pro

If you're looking to buy a new soundcard sometime soon, Tom's Hardware goes into detail on the new "ZS" range of Creative's Audigy 2 line. The original Audigy 2 was quite the card for the job, the newer more refined series seems to be basically faultless all-round.

The old Audigy 2, if we can say that, and the new versions look exactly the same. But don't let looks fool you, as the new versions have new features aplenty, both in hardware and in software. Like the other Audigy 2s, they use the highest quality sound cards that can operate at frequencies up to 192 kHz, based on 24 bits, to achieve the best possible recordings and sound reproduction.

These cards now also take advantage of the latest surround-sound standards for movies and games. Yes, that's right: Creative has entered the world of 7.1 sound.
