ATI TV Wonder Elite Video Review @ 3dGameMan

Rodney’s latest video review is of the ATI TV Wonder Elite. Snip: "The ATI TV Wonder Elite is based on the very powerful ATI Theater 550 Pro chip. The large analog tuner of previous generation TV Wonder products is replaced by the small Microtune MT2050 Digital Tuner. This tuner not only is capable of TV but also FM radio. For convenience, the Remote Wonder Plus remote control is included. The only downside to this product is the weak software package, Power Cinema. Watch the Video to find out more…" Watch it HERE

CeBIT 2005: World Exclusive – Koolance’s New ATI X8-series GPU Waterblock

The team over at Hexus have a world exclusive on there hands. A new GPU waterblock from Koolance, the makers of our high-end cooling recommendation from our buyers guide. Snip: "On the opposite side you can see Koolance’s new innovation for this new series of GPU coolers. Dubbed HydraPak, it’s a pierce and puncture proof container for the other side of the waterchannel. The material doesn’t conduct any electricty whatsoever and cools the back side of the board with direct contact. On a flip-chip design like the X8-series, you can transfer heat away from the bottom of the GPU and to the PCB. Especially with X850 XT, that’s a fearsome amount of heat to get rid of and while the X850 XT’s cooler does a good job in getting direct heat away from the GPU, there’s still plenty radiated from the rear."

Memory Shootout – Samsung TCCD @ Hexus

Hexus have posted a memory shootout between various high performance Samsung TCCD modules. Snip: "To sum up, if you want the coolest modules on the block and you’re feeling flush, the Corsair Xpert is in a niche of its own. Paired with Samsung’s TCCD modules, there’s a world of performance to be had from them at modest Vdimm. Otherwise, the G.Skill and OCZ both come recommended at around the ?200 mark, with Corsair’s XL PRO and XL PT under that price, too." Read the shootout HERE
