- 3-Way GeForce FX 5700 Ultra Mini-Roundup

The fellas over at HardwareZone have rounded up three Geforce FX 5700 Ultra cards for roundup earlier today, covering cards from MSI, Gainward, and Albatron. They don't sport the newer GDDR3 memory announced recently but are still good performers for the buck (if you take the 5900XT's out of the picture).


When we checked each of the card's clock speeds, we were surprised to find them all identical and quite unlike the RADEON 9600XT camp of graphics cards where there were a number of variations. More or less, that would equate to similar performance among all three graphics cards, so how else is each of them unique? Read on as we check out each of the graphics card's features, package offerings and end the mini roundup with performance comparisons.


- ATI Catalyst 4.4 Drivers

Although a little late from their usual release date pattern (beginning of each month), ATI have some fresh drivers for us. The 4.4's have been confirmed to fix a few issues with various recent games which have hit the scene, and possibly give us a little more in the way of FPS across the board, be your own judge and fire 'em up!
