Canadian hint emerges of iPhone 5 release

Purportedly leaked documents from Canadian carrier Telus suggest the iPhone 5 might ship on October 1. The release date comes along with several, presumably for other products, that are all cast as concrete and not fillers. The choice would be a Saturday but isn't "unrealistic" given how busy phone stores are those days, BGR's tipster said.

nForce 780i motherboard supports Intel Yorkfield

Nvidia nForce 780i board

Nvidia has introduced a new nForce motherboard, the 780i. Like the 680i, the 780 is able to link an unusual three Nvidia cards together in SLI mode, resulting in performance up to 2.8 times faster than a single card; this is purportedly enough to play Crysis with maximum detail at 1900x1200, or Call of Duty 4 at 2500x1600. The 780i is specifically tailored to Intel's Yorkfield (QX9650) processor, which is rated at 3GHz and has a 1.33GHz front-side bus.

NVIDIA intros three-way SLI, starts with Alienware

12/13, 11:15am

NVIDIA 3-Way SLI Graphics

Attempting to gain an edge over its close rival AMD, NVIDIA today introduced three-way SLI for particularly high-end gaming systems. Using the company's nForce 680i SLI mainboard for Intel systems as well as video cards using either a GeForce 8800 GTX or an 8800 Ultra chipset, the technology allows three video cards to team up for 3D acceleration on a single display where only two were possible in the past. The extra performance translates almost literally to a 2.8X jump in speed over a single card and means that even very demanding games such as Crysis can run both at full detail and at the highest resolutions without waiting for newer hardware, NVIDIA says.
