Techbits

Greg
Techbits are a brain child of Greg Hess, who initially started them on the Discreet Forum, then moved them here to a permanent home; they are gathered, (chewed up) and processed by Greg Hess and Thomas Bruno, an all around good guys, hardware experts and 3DLuVr staff/contributing authors.

Kyle's all wet. Soaked in fact...with the new Koolance retail water cooling unit. Who would have thought that one day we'd be dumping water on our computers?

AMD cuts workforce, closes fabs, and prepares to fight an extended price war in its reinforced trenches.



This announcement has caused a variety of rumors to fly over the web, once of which is gateway no longer selling AMD boxes. This is FALSE. Just thought you should know =).

A very technical look at Tyan's Tiger MP the budget Dual AMD motherboard. Very interesting and indepth.

Whats 1266 Megahertz and 512k l2 cache get you? A very competitive offering from Intel, the 1.26 Tualatin Processor. If these chips were less expensive they might actually be a worthwhile investment.

Via sues Intel. Intel sues Via. The irony? Intel is suing VIA over making a Pentium IV DDR board (It outperforms the SDRAM and RDRAM P4 boards by an good amount AND is cheaper), while Via is suing Intel over patent infringement on the Pentium IV. =)

Intel makes a drastic move! They can one processor to release a faster variant. Thats right folks, 2.2 Gigahertz Xeon Processors soon.


I remember when everyone was excited about the 486 DX and its 6 Megahertz Front Side Bus Increase!

An overview of the AMD new PR system. The how to guide of figuring out the actual core speed of the upcoming Athlon XP processors. (Palamino = Athlon 4, Athlon 4 MP, and Now Athlon XP)

A most excellent AMD faq. This covers everything you ever wanted to know about your AMD processor. A must look for any Duron/Thunderbird owner.

Tom has an excellent article on what happens when you remove a heatsink from your cpu. However nothing is more hilarous then watching it in realtime. Check out the video at the url! Hilarous!
