GT2 Radeon 9800 Pro GeiL enters the graphics cards market as a maker

Habits are hard to forget. GeiL known by its overclocker memory started making graphics cards, and through habit they turned out to be overclocker as well.


The first product GeiL GT2 Radeon 9800 Pro on ATI Radeon 9800 Pro GPU has considerably higher clock speeds comparing to the serial models 445/740MHz vs. 380/680 MHz. It´s also interesting that GeiL will also ship BIOS reworked to support changed memory timings.

The card has 128Mb of 256-bit 2.8ns Samsung DDR (BGA) memory, and is shipped with ThermalTake´s cooling system. The company has recently sent GeiL GT2 Radeon 9800 Pro samples to the first testers. For more details on this novelty you can visit our colleagues at ModLabs.net GeiL GT2 Radeon 9800 Pro.

Desktop and workstation BCM5751 supports ASF 2.0 (Alerting Standards Forum).

BCM5751M is power-optimized for mobile applications. Besides, BCM5751M supports Trusted Computing Group 1.1b specs providing enterprise authentification and protection from attacks.

All three are based on 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet MACs; have built-in buffers and PHY tranceivers; all three are made using 0.13µm CMOS. Each chip is encased into 196-pin 15x15mm housing. BCM5721, BCM5751, and BCM5751M are already sampling.

Sony DSC-U40: 2Mp digital still camera with Memory Stick PRO Duo support

Speed Strip Model SSA-1: Athlon XP hardware multiplier unlocker

Speed Strip introduced such an interesting product — Speed Strip Model SSA-1 a strip with holes designed for Athlon XP overclockers that do not want to solder pins manually.


Speed Strip Model SSA-1 works with AMD Athlon XP with Thoroughbred and Barton cores. It actually doesn´t require any comments: just set the strip on specific processor pins. Now you can forget soldering the 5th pin in L3 bridge. Of course, to make Speed Strip SSA-1 work, you will need a motherboard supporting custom multipliers and FSB. Finally, this accessory costs $15, so if you can´t use your hands, you will have to use your wallet :)
