Its Hammer Time!
Note the speed. Then note the scores. I wonder if Intel can even hear anything anymore with all of AMD's war drum's banging away.

Alumnium cases...or bringers of DOOM!!!!
Anand takes a look at a thermaltake alumnium case. Thermaltake, well known for their most excellent heatsinks of cooling +5, is trying to produce some pretty nicely designed cases for the market. Whats the catch? The internals and basic design are the same as cheiftech full towers, but thermaltake's version costs 4-5x more.

The Intel I845PE chipset. Whats it do? Hows SMT (Simultanous Multithreading, or lotsa of pr for a little bit of performance) and true 333 DDR support sound? Just ok? Well damn you people are hard to please. Anand's got the scoop on epox's first PE release, so get on over there and check it out.

Commercial graphics processors define next-gen military systems
ATI Technologies Inc., Nvidia Corp., and 3DLabs Inc. are selling their commercial PC graphics parts to the military, although volumes are relatively small. Even so, graphics designers say the use of their products in such high-profile, demanding applications provides a hidden benefit by showcasing the processors and cards for other new markets.

Intel describes billion-transistor four-core Itanium processor
Intel Corp. described at Microprocessor Forum 2002 how it could combine four Itanium 2 cores with a large, shared cache memory to create a processor with more than 1 billion transistors, and said it could build a processor of that size in 65-nanometer technology by 2007

Intel touts security on a chip
Intel today claimed the industry's first network processor for secure content processing. The Intel IXP2850 network processor features high-performance packet processing with security features in a single chip and is designed for applications such as Virtual Private Networks, Web services and Storage Area Networks. Hardware mechanisms within the chip enable popular encryption standards, such as 3DES and the recently introduced Advanced Encryption Standard, to be implemented at speeds up to 10Gbps, Intel says. The company is positioning the chip as an alternative to customised ASICs commonly found in current high-speed firewall/VPN appliances from the likes of NetScreen.
