HWRoundup 3dfx and Nvidia PCI punch-up
Meet Asus' A7Pro mobo - the A7V lite
At Viahardware Buck has put the 3dfx Voodoo 4 PCI up against Nvidia's MX PCI in a PCI budget card punch-up. It's billed as a young gun versus the wise master kind of thing. Uncle Buck reckons the "GeForce2 MX PCI would most likely scale better than the Voodoo4 4500 PCI with faster CPU's. However the Voodoo4 4500 PCI can do Glide, something that the GeForce obviously lacks at."
PC Review is quite excited about the new Asus A7Pro Motherboard, which they call the 'lite' version of the A7V. It says the board features the same overclockers dream tool, the multiplier dipswitch function, but no ATA 100 Controller. In summary "this board is exactly the same, just cheaper!" Check it out here.
Over at Sharky they've had a peek at the MSI K7T Pro mobo. They like the price, the stability, the fuzzy logic for overclocking, and the inclusion of the ATA/100 card. Marks against were for having no USB bracket, and no multiplier adjustment. Overall and average board with a good price.
Overclockers.com are chillin' with a review of a new radiator from Cool-Computers. This is what the fridge fella says: "It's small so fits nicely inside most cases and has a high flow rate, the disadvantage of course being the water spends less time being cooled. Anyway, it stacked up pretty well - I tested it against my own setup and the full Senfu kit, it came out on top!" ®
