We had a poll the other day. Page 1 of the poll painted a scenario in which AMD kept relatively high prices on its socket 939 and future 90nm chips, while selling Parises fairly cheaply. Readers were then asked what Read More
On the CPU front, the future is dual. Intel laid out its medium-term roadmap the other day and said enough to indicate that multicore technology will become a reality for folks like us in 2006. They also made it clear Read More
The Inquirer has some updated price roadmaps for Intel chips. Actually, with one small exception, it’s really no change at all from what was previously expected. A while back, we gave you estimated price roadmaps for the rest of the Read More
According to Reuters and the Wall Street Journal, Intel is supposed to officially announce today that they’re not going to bother with the Tejas generation of PIVs/Xeons. This ought not come as too much of a surprise to those of Read More
For overclockers, up to now, if you wanted to look at a Hammer board, you had to look at nVidia, because Via had never, ever had a PCI/AGP lock on anything. That’s the kind of default choice you’d rather not Read More
Welcome back to the second part of our article on PC water coolant chemistry! If you have not already done so, please check out Part I for detailed information on some of water’s unique physical, thermal and chemical properties and the various types of water available for use in PC water-cooling systems. In Part II, we will take a closer look at the suitability of using pure water, discuss corrosion, summarize some of the many water additives that are available, and present several popular recipes for coolant mixtures.
We have a few questions for AMDers to get an idea of what they’re likely to do in the near future. First, we give you a scenario with a number of likely assumptions about products, pricing, performance and overclockability. Then, Read More
The Inquirer says AMD says so. Can’t honestly say I ever expected them to do that, so it’s hardly a disappointment. It is a fairly solid indication that AMD doesn’t have a contingency 90nm Athlon XP in the back of Read More
