Just about several minutes ago while surfing the net we came to http://www.asus.com.tw/products/vga/ati.htm (but, in 5 minutes the document magically disappeared). The page contained some data on ATI Radeon based ASUS Radeon series videocards. They are: 9800 XT / TVD (256 MB RAM), 9600 XT / TVD (128 MB RAM), 9600 SE / TD (128 MB RAM), 9200 SE / TD (128 MB RAM), 9200 SE / T (64 MB RAM).

Read it, enjoy it.
Here we´d like to offer you to enjoy the first photos of Radeon 9000-based videocards from ASUS. Frankly speaking, there are almost no exciting features: usual Radeon 9000, standard 64 MB RAM (5 ns chips from Samsung), traditional GPU/memory clocks: 250/200 (400) MHz... but... it´s ASUS!
As we´ve learnt, these cards (well, not these, but OEM, not boxed cards)
have already went to market for $50. As these are OEMs, you can´t find maker´s
name on the PCB, but all new ASUS´ ATI chips-based cards will have it! Stay
tuned, we´ll be back with hot reviews ;-)
It´s time to provide the details about all NVIDIA nForce3 chipsets. As today, the last day of Computex 2003 clarified everything about this Athlon 64 series, so we can now omit the Crush K8/Crush K8S codenames for the sake of official names.
So, the NVIDIA nForce3 series currently includes 5 chips – one supports Athlon 64 FX-51, all five support Athlon 64, another is designed for mobile systems.
Some chipsets have already appeared in our news. Below is a complete list of nForce3 solutions:
I guess no other comments are necessary, however I´ll just add that exactly nForce3 250Gb and nForce3 250 were codenamed Crush K8S differing from Crush K8 (nForce3 150) jut by Gigabit Ethernet (250Gb) and up to 4 x Serial ATA ports. nForce3 250 shipments are estimated for launch in November.
And what´s really interesting – at the exhibition they also showed... a dual-way nForce3 250 for Opteron 2xx workstations! It has AGP 8X, PCI-X slots and AMD-8131 PCI-X bridge.

With time our Hardware Museum obtains more and more exhibits and some graphics card series are almost complete.
Today we introduce you the photos of the latest models we received.

We continue our report from the ASUS booth at Computex 2003. Today it´s about some system building concepts that should become actual next spring.
This placard notifies booth visitors about things the nearest future should bring:
I can´t say it´s something extraordinary, however in general it´s impressive: 240-pin DIMM DDR-II 400/533/667 for new DDR-I incompatible socket, variaous PCI Express solutions – õ1, õ2, õ4, õ8, õ16, õ32 – to replace the current PCI and AGP, Serial ATA-II (still compatible with SATA-I), new cooling systems, new "default" audio standard 24-bit/192kHz, etc.
However, this is just a piece of paper, but what do we have now? ASUS showcased a "system of the future", though didn´t provide any comments. Look carefully, there are some interesting things to familiarize yourself with – new interfaces, sockets, the way how processor looks. Our Alexander Vorobyev who sent us this report from the event wasn´t completely sure it was a Prescott still it resembled a LGA775 solution, especially on one of the photos below. And I guess you already understood who made a GPU for the graphics card installed :)
Pentax announced its new 3.2 Mpix camera, Optio33LF, featuring 3x optical zoom. The model will go on sale in late October and for retail for £229.99
