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.

Nvidia ships nForce 3 Pro
The nForce 3 Pro is a single-chip implementation of Nvidia's Athlon XP-oriented nForce 2 product. The Opteron's built-in memory controller has forced Nvidia to dispense with its own controller, allowing it to fold the North Bridge's AGP controller into its South Bridge part. The processor connects to the nForce 3 Pro chip across a 3.6GBps HyperTransport point-to-point serial link. The 150nm (0.15 micron) nForce 3 Pro chip provides AGP 8x; Serial ATA support with RAID levels 0, 1 and 0+1; ATA 133 support; 10/100 Ethernet with network boot, wake on LAN and hardware firewall; and USB 2.0.

CeBIT Comes to America
The first CeBIT show in America may be all work and little play, but plenty of business-savvy gadgets abound at this confab hosted by the German conventioneer. CeBIT America takes over the Javits Center here this week as a broad selection of vendors, including Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, and PalmSource, turn up the buzz on business tech wares amid a tech slump. Between chatter over total cost of ownership and other enterprise issues, attendees will also be able to peruse pedestrian products like a sub-$1000 Tablet PC, a souped-up Handspring smartphone, and a selection of ever-faster wireless 802.11g products. An estimated 20,000 CeBIT attendees are expected at the conference, about half the number originally forecast for the event last year. Attendees will be able to prowl 360 companies' exhibits. CeBIT America pales by comparison with the eight-day CeBIT supershow held each spring in Hanover, Germany.

High Price For Late-Night Computer Use
Recently released research claims that playing lots of video games improves some types of visual functioning. Before rushing to your computer or buying more games, consider another new research finding. Newly published results suggests that performing an exciting video display terminal task fitted with a bright display suppresses the nocturnal changes in melatonin concentration and other elements of our biological clocks. In other words, playing an exciting video game at night with a bright display backlight might just be the physiological cause of a poor night's sleep. ....... At last I finally know why all us 3D artist are late night crack heads. :)
