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.

Opteron release schedule
After taking back the performance crown with Barton XP 3000+ and releasing no less than 12 Athlon XP-M (M for mobile) processors, the company is now on the verge to storm the server market with the most-awaited Opteron processor. This is what could be confirmed by an unofficial Opteron's launch schedule, published today at AMDboard, which shows no less than 12 different Opteron models, from 1 to 8-way, to be released from April to June 03.

Intel introduces Gigabit Ethernet networking chips
Intel Corp. introduced several Ethernet products to the market today including a gigabit/s Ethernet controller, a 10-Gbit/s Ethernet server adapter and 10-Gbit/s optical transceiver. The Intel PRO/1000 CT is Intel's gigabit/s Ethernet controller. It works with Intel's soon-to-be-released Springdale and Canterwood peripheral logic chipsets to double the performance attained on desktop-PC GbE-network connections, Intel said.

Man claims he's reduced Windows OS to 40MB
An enterprising soul claims to have taken the bloatware out of the Windows 9X operating system and reduced it from the huge size it was to a mere 40MB. And that means his PC boots "in seconds", needs no security updates and flies along like the proverbial off the hot shovel. The chap even posts free CDs and instructions to people who want to try out his SPEEDOS or STREWTH! operating system.

Instead it was released as a 3rd party partner certified driver set. This driver is recommended for: Aveva Engineering IT and Softimage (Softimage XSI).

Size Does Matter...Smaller is Better!
Anand and the gang are really pimpin out a wide array of reviews of late. Here's another one, a great big heaping roundup of the mini-pc's. Small, powerful, and cuddly.

If I Only Had Twelve New Mobile Processors
Somedays you can get away with a single chip release. Somedays you can get away with two. But somedays, just and your largest competitor can release so many new fangled things that even the consultants heads spin.

Geforce FX 5600. Quieter Then a Rocket Engine
Anand strokes some of the new offerings from nvidia. Impressive? Not really. I tend to expect newer cards to "slaughter" the previous generation...not tease them.

Sis748 to Support Really Fast Athlons (400 FSB)
Even though AMD hasn't offically announced a 400 FSB Barton, it sure looks like the major manufacturers are all starting to pledge support. So AMD, where's that damn press release?
