Today's product review will be about Creative's Radeon 9600 with 256 MB memory ... that's right 256 MB ! An ongoing trend lately is that we see more, much more memory utilized on graphics cards. Especially the high-end segment seems to need that extra chunk of memory to be as efficient as the card needs to be.
The product is Albatron's Gigi GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, armed with 128 MB DDR2 memory and a strong software bundle. We will have a little chat about the GeForce FX 5700 Ultra technology also known under development codename NV36. Tthe 5950 had a small core clock and memory frequency increase, the 5700 however had slight design chances in it's chipset architecture.
Today's product review will be from Compro and is called the VideMate Cinema TV Gold+, a product that you can insert into your PCI bus while you can upgrade that graphics card of years as often as you wish. The VideoMate TV Gold+ is not just a TV card though, no is handles Stereo TV and Radio, acts as programmable video recorder, records media files through an external source and hey .. it'll will even boot up your PC when you program the software to record a TV show. An absolutely fantastic device.
