It's Linux for IBM supercomputer project
IBM's $100 million Blue Gene program is directed at creating, by late 2005 or early 2006, a new family of supercomputers that will be able to perform a quadrillion calculations per second (one petaflop). Blue Gene/L, the first member of the family, will contain 65,000 processors and 16 trillion bytes of memory. Due in 2004 or 2005, the system will be able to perform 200 trillion calculations per second. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will use the system for performing nuclear weapons simulations.

PowerBook's new PC rival designed by Porsche
The VPR Matrix 200A5 is the third notebook Best Buy has created, and it's the best. It's also the first Windows notebook with a wide-aspect, 15.2-inch LCD with a 1,280x854 native resolution and a remarkable, high-fidelity digital audio system. The $2,399 system also includes a 2GHz Pentium 4-M, 512MB of DDR SDRAM, a 40GB hard drive, a combo CD-RW/DVD drive, and integrated 802.11b wireless networking. It all comes in an eye-catching, silver-magnesium case that weighs 6.4 pounds and measures 13.9 inches wide, 10 inches deep, and 1.2 inches thick.

ATI Is Seeing Double
Double DDR that is. DDR-II to be exact. But then of course I couldn't come up with an interesting title for that, so this is what you get. The question is...what is nvidia doing!!!! Where's our #1 super happy fun ultra elite accelerators!

3dlabs Releases the Wildcat4
Lots of PR, Lots of Graphics, and Lots of Graphs.

And no mention whatsoever of price. I hope these are early driver scores, because 3% performance difference isn't going to make up for a hefty price tag...especially when this is competing against nvidia's previous gen products.

According to Kyle, "Aka the man", looks like Oem's are starting to field the 3.08 SMT P4's. This of course means we should probably be seeing them in a few weeks, possibly around the second week of nov.

3.5 Inches and Still Pleasing
Ah the 3.5 form factor. Who would have ever though we'd be fitting 200 gigs into such a small amount of space. Storage review knows and tells all about the new WD2000JB 200 gig ATA-133 HD...Always remember that looks can be decieving.
