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.

Can't find a Pentium IV? Neither can anyone else. Intel is experiencing a major chip shortage caused by yield problems, transition from socket 423 to 478, and rambus to DDR and SDRAM conversions. Might be good to wait till after Jan 27th to pick yourself up a Intel solution.

New Via 4 in 1 drivers, v 4.35v (v denotes the new AGP driver).

Give it a shot if your having problems.

Intel's new revision of the Pentium IV (Northwood), will be released on January 7, 2002. Northwood is a Socket 478, and will be designated with an A after the gigahertz rating.

Example. 2.2A Pentium IV.

These chips feature 512k of onchip l2 cache (up from 256k) and feature the new .13 micron process. They are not backwards compatible with the current Pentium IV boards, and will have their own specific system requirements.

The 2.2A will be priced at 620 USD, with the 2.0A coming in at 420 USD.

The first price cut for them is planned on January 27, 2002.

Wasting money. We all do it. Some of us do it better then others. If you lagging behind in the money wasting catagory, invest in a Pentium IV SDRAM solution on an i845 motherboard...because there is nothing like a slow processor on a slow motherboard with even slower ram.

Random Techno Blurbs.

Polaroid files chapter 11 bankrupcy. Guess digital camera's were more then a fad.

Via wins lawsuit against Intel. Intel prepares to sue Via for suing a monopoly.

Rambus loses a lawsuit against the entire computer industry, including grandma.

Ram prices begin to rise, bread begins to fall.

Anandtech releases a new book. Greg Hess learns to read.

The Nv25. Rumors and Ramblings. Most people believe its going to have 128 megs of 300(600) DDR, with a 300 megahertz core speed. I think it will be responsible for bringing world peace and allowing humankind to travel to the outer reaches of our galaxy.

Speed. We all crave it, yet its considered an illegal drug. Oh wait I meant computer related performance. Well if you need a quick (legal) speed fix, powerleap has your dime bags. 1.2 Gigahertz on a BX motherboard sound good to you?

1.2 Gigahertz...of inexpensiveness? Thats right boys and girls...The celeron's back, and he's got a whole new bag. (Check out this review, this chip goes most excellently with the Powerleap adapter in the techbit above this one)

Intel pushes the envelope...into Terahertz. With over 1 TRILLION dollars...oops I mean operations per second, Intel is now finally approaching the performance levels obtained by AMD last year. (joke)

Misunderstanding the term "overclock"? Tried to overclock your cat and failed? Kitten's not running fast enough? Put the Kitten down...Slowly. Now have a seat (not on the kitten), and give this article a read, which goes over some of the basics behind the dark magical art of...overclocking.
