The worlds largest chipmaker just wowed Wall Street and the tech world with its latest earnings report. The publicly-traded company reported a net income of $2.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2009, up an amazing 875% from its $234 million earnings in the fourth quarter of 2008. This more than beat Wall Street expectations.

If you've been watching our previous coverage of Fusion-io's almost too good be true PCI Express SSD products, you'll know that while the company makes no bones about the fact that their enterprise class cards are ridiculously expensive, they are also planning on delivering an "enthusiast" class card that will align better price-wise with the average end user just looking for killer storage performance. It appears the planning process is over today and though it was delayed a month or two, Fusion-io is now executing on that plan.

Nvidia has announced it will cease development of future Nforce hardware until its suit with Intel is settled sometime in 2010. Intel has alleged that a previous chipset agreement between it and Nvidia does not apply to the Core or Nehalem series of processors.

As a very happy owner of a 4850 from the last gen I am obviously very interested in the 5850. Looking at the specs the 5850 look to be even closer to the 5870 then the 4850 was to the 4870. So anyone looking for a midrange part to kick some serious arse this is the ticket.

The first DX11 card to hit the shelves. A very impressive card that has me drooling and thinking buying one shortly. Check out this review to see for yourself.

Sony has finalized specifications of Memory Stick XC, which was also known back during CES 2009 as Memory Stick Format Series for Extended High Capacity. At that time, Sony had mentioned that this new Memory Stick would have 2TB maximum capacity, but details were rather scarce. A new page on Sonys oss-formats.org website has listed all of the details for the Memory Stick XC, which is really exciting especially considering that the form factor for these new flash cards are (on paper) the same as pre-existing memory sticks, which means that these high capacity juggernauts are most likely backwards compatible.

During CES there were two teams (one from AMD, one from Finland) using Helium basud cooling to set OC records. Using a Phenom 2 the highest clock speed for a x86 chip was set, along with the record score for 3d mark 05.

Were you looking for a PC case to fit in with your collection of FPS-style crates and exploding barrels? Well, look no further than the eXtremely well-named Cooler Master Sniper. Just make sure you don't let any space marines see your new possession, or they might try shooting it to get at the stim packs and ammo contained within.

Intels new X25-M 80GB SSD is one of the fastest consumer solid state drives available - a technology that's commonly cited as being the future of storage technology. But at $600, this puppy isn't cheap. Is the technology actually worth it yet?

The Internet may have given everyone a voice, but that also means that anyone can have a voice... and it can be hard to figure out who is worth listening to when looking at product reviews. Belkin hasn't made that process any easier, as the company has been caught buying positive reviews for its routers. The price for a positive review? Under a dollar, and you better be calling "legit" reviews unhelpful before you ask for your paycheck.

NVIDIA Continues to refine the GT200 GPU, and the latest 55nm version offers better efficiency and higher performance. In this article, Benchmark Reviews performance tests the ASUS GeForce GTX 285 against a wide range of video cards. With 1GB of GDDR3 video memory clocked to 1300MHz, and 240 cores working at 1550MHz, the ENGTX285 TOP pushes frame rates to a new high. Benchmarks will help set these video cards apart, but price will ultimately decide the products fate.

Antec has been the top choice for system builders and hardware enthusiasts for almost a decade now, which is quite surprising when you consider the competition. But the good old days of beige box computer cases with plenty of fans lining the inside are long gone. To achieve market dominance in 2009, you have to manufacturer a product that features everything more would consider desirable. While visiting with Mr. Han Liu, Antec's product development director present at the 2009 International CES, Benchmark Reviews discussed the Antec P1000 gaming chassis prototype.

From my experience, 2008 has been a very good year for CPU coolers. We've tested the OCZ Vendetta 2 to perform as well or better than coolers twice its price, and we've discovered that the Thermaltake V14 Pro can deliver top cooling performance while looking good. But heading into 2009 we must bid farewell to the LGA775 platform, which has been the home to many of our most popular products, and welcome in the new LGA1366 socket for the Intel Core i7 CPU & X58 platform. This Best CPU Cooler Performance - Q4 2008 article will be the last foreseeable socket T series round-up from Benchmark Reviews, unless something really big changes the landscape.
