BFG Technologies announced the BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC2 and the BFG GeForce GTX 260 OCX factory overclocked graphics cards.
All right, now we have three cards that compete for the title of the fastest GTX 260 solution: XFX GX-260N-ADD9 (640/2,300 MHz), Zotac GeForce GTX 260 AMP! Edition (650/2,100 MHz), and BFG GeForce GTX 260 OCX:
The second announced solution, BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC2, offers lower clock rates, which are still high enough:
The BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC2 and BFG GeForce GTX 260 OCX will be available throughout North America and Europe beginning the week of July 7, 2008.
If you live in North America, you are eligible for the BFG Trade Up program: within 100 days of purchase, the BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC2 and BFG GeForce GTX 260 OCX graphics cards can be traded up to a BFG graphics card of greater performance and price, and the customer only pays the difference in price, plus applicable taxes and shipping.

What's new in RMAA 6.1.1:

RMAA PRO features:
Our colleagues from Chile Hardware posted information on AMD's official chipset roadmap for 2009.
It includes new RD890 and RS880 chipsets, both of which utilize DDR3 memory, as well as the new SB800 Southbridge.
After the announcement of the initial Eee PC 701, the world saw an abundance of Eee PC models that evolved (or rather were marketed) into a separate Eee family. Aside from Eee PC 701, we already know of Eee PC 900, Eee PC 901, Eee PC 1000 and Eee PC 1000 (H).
But it seems ASUS is going to continue. According to the sources, the company has three more products, which are very similar to Eee notebooks we have already seen: Eee PC 903, Eee PC 904 and Eee PC 905. As you can see, there's still a lot of numbers to go from Eee PC 900 to Eee PC 1000. :)
The "novelties" are based on the same Intel Atom and feature 8.9-inch displays with the same thick borders.
The key difference is that new notebooks utilize enclosures of Eee PC 1000, i.e. have larger keyboards.
As for batteries and "memory capacity" (it's not clear whether RAM or HDD is meant), ASUS hasn't yet decided whether to change existing configurations or not.
Eee PC 904 and 905 are expected to be sold for prices similar to those of Eee PC 900 and 901, so the newer couple can gradually replace the older.
Scythe introduced the new Kama Panel 2 multi-purpose panel to be mounted into 5.25-inch bay.
Kama Panel 2 offers a card reader (reads micro SD cards w/o adapters), USB2.0 and IEEE1394 connected to motherboard headers. The panel can be used to control 6 fans and even has a place for a slim optical drive.
The novelty is available in two colors: black (SCKMPN-2000-BK) and silver (SCKMPN-2000-SL). Sized 148 x 42 x 90 mm, Kama Panel 2 has the following front panel interfaces:
The panel works with Windows 2000/XP/Vista. The list of supported flash media includes: SD Card, miniSD Card, SDHC Card, micro SD Card, MMC Card, RS-MMC Card, Compact Flash, Micro Drive, xD Card, Memory Stick (including PRO, DUO, PRO-DUO).
Scythe Kama Panel 2 costs 39.80 USD.
The release of the long-anticipated Nikon D700 marks the coming of full-frame image sensors (FX) to Nikon's prosumer segment. Looking very similar to Nikon's another full-frame offering, D3, the novelty, according to its name is positioned closer to D300 that features an DX sensor (with x1.5 crop factor).
The similarity to D3 is not purely outward. The novelty features the same 12.1-Mp CMOS sensor and EXPEED processor. In other words, we can expect similar image quality produced by these two cameras.
The most noticeable differences are related to the shutter (guaranteed 150,000 shots vs. D3's 300,000 shots), viewfinder (95% coverage), and slightly lower burst speed (5 fps; 8 fps with MB-D10 battery unit and EN-EL4a battery). Besides, D700 features only 1 CF slot instead of 2. New features include dust reduction system and built-in flash.
