TechZone Heading

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.

External H20...
Ed hit the pool with a big splash with one of the first retail "external" watercooling setups. Pretty innovative if you want alternatives to air cooling, but don't like the idea of a pump and resevoir inside your case.

More PowerPC Lovin from Ars
Here's a bit more info on the new 64 bit processor from IBM, which should give a nice ramp up to apple's hardware lineup, giving mac users something to brag about other then their damn os for once.

Though it looks like by the time this chip is released, everything else will be running about 3x faster. Heh

IBM releases a new 1.8 PowerPC microprocessor. If apple chooses to integrate these into their line of systems, they might start competing against pc's again :).

Though it looks like it will be apple who shafts their own user base. If they were to announce this product, who in their right mind would buy a g4?

Desktop Hammer Delayed...Nails Rejoice.
AMD is going to delay the desktop version of hammer till late in Q4 2003. Lets just hope this is the last delay, and that they can hold out long enough against Intel's onslaught.

Rotten Apples...
Apple has decided to withdraw from this years macworld. Instead this years macworld will feature such headlines as, "The Swedish Line Dancers", and "Bill Gates does the cha-cha" instead of Steve Job's traditional key-note speech.

Macworld...mac optional.

Got Raid*?
Xbitlabs takes a look at the performance of a variety of ide raid cards on the market today. If you've got all those extra drives laying around, you might as well put them to use right?

*=SCSI users don't consider IDE RAID to be raid at all. :)
