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.

Feeling a little hot? Getting stuffy inside your room? Are all your fans leaving you? These and other problems can be fixed by looking into...thats right! A replacement heatsink! Awaremag destroys the competition (well joins them) in a major Socket A heatsink review.

AMD uses the opportunity to announce a new AMD760MP Dual Socket A motherboard...and introduces a new 768 southbridge with full 66 megahertz 64 bit PCI support!

Apple announces the G5, a Processor mysterious running at 1.6 gigahertz with an "increased" pipeline stage, and a 400 fsb. Interesting. I wonder what other chip has an increased pipeline and a 400 megahertz fsb and is available at 1.6 gigahertz and scales past 2.0 ghz =).

Nvidia has decided to cancel all support for 3dfx in Windows XP. This of course has many people very upset. Although 3dfx video cards are the last choice for a 3d application, it is rather disheartening to know your video card's support is truely dead.

The Pentium III will cease to be produced on December 7th according to Intel sources.

This of course means the current Socket 370/PPGA/FC-CPU interface's days are numbered.

Ace says this best so this is a direct quote from his article.

"....theVIA P4X333 supports also Quad Data Rate technology. The kicker here is that it is functional with normal PC2100/PC2700 modules. While it not dual-channel,P4X333 is able to offer up to 5.4GB/s of bandwidth with PC2700 modules!

...Considering that almost every 850 chipset can run at 533 MHz, Northwood will probably feature a 533 MHz FSB (133 MHz quadpumped) featuring a 4.2 GB/s FSB.

Via might be giving the P4 its first fighting chance.
