The ECS Elitegroup GF9300T-A
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 4272 x 2848 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D - 12 MegaPixel.
Well, we always show you what to look for in the stores, meet... the packaging. You are going "ooooh" right now eh? ;) That's a DRAGON babeeh! Yeah, um I had a bit too much coffee this morning, sorry.
The bundle and packaging. ECS makes sure you'll receive everything you need to get started. Not a rather excessive bundle though. This is common for ECS. Well, I'm Dutch, I like to see lots and lots of items included. Haah, geee, goo, gosh darn it don't we all?
This ECS mainboard comes with 3 PCI, 1 PCIe x16 and 2 PCIe x1 slots. The board incorporates Realtek 8-channel HD audio. First impression, pretty decent design. A very clean mainboard, this is due to the NVIDIA MCP7A chip covered up under that Black Series passive heatsink. Seems the benefit here is that there's one chip to rule them all... hardly any need for the motherboard manufacturer to include other chips, as the MCP has got it all.
Everything is located pretty well. Good color-scheme as well. I like the subtle tones.
Once we look at a perspective shot you can't help thinking that the board itself looks pretty cool with that black theme going on. The mainboard chipset is passively cooled by the way and thus makes no noise. Very much appreciated thank you very much :)
On Friday NVIDIA announced G-Sync, and considering the little details available out there I wanted to write a quick follow-up on this new technology, as it really is a big announcement - a really bi...
NVIDIA GF100 (Fermi) Technology preview
Last week we arrived at Sin City not only to cover CES but there was something else going on as well. In Las Vegas, NVIDIA had organized a briefing for a select group of the press. From Europe perhaps ten to fifteen people where invited for this somewhat privileged preview -- the topic, a technical overview of project Fermi. Fermi is of course the family name of the latest generation of GPUs from NVIDIA. The first chipset deriving from Fermi will be called the GF100 GPU which will likely be used on what we think will be called products like GeForce 360 and GeForce 380. Join us in a nice technology preview.
NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision review
In this article we will test and review the NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision stereo kit. NVIDIA teamed up with Samsung to optionally bundle 120 Hz LCD monitors with their all new 3D stereo shutter glasses technology. NVIDIA on their end got driver support up and going to a state where it's really good. Next to that, they redesigned the approach to the overall gaming experience. A set of shutter glasses that is wireless and rechargeable, games that are supported in the new drivers will automatically kick in 3D mode and next to that, NVIDIA really wanted a cool looking kit.
NVIDIA GF9300 (ECS GF9300TA) mainboard review
A test on the ECS GF9300T-A motherboard. Today NVIDIA is introducing their more budget conscious mainboard chipsets. The GF9300 and GF9400 based integrated graphics chipset motherboard products.
