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.

Dates arrive for Barton, MP chips
People at AMD Taiwan have given the Inquirer details of when we may expect new 32-bit chips from the firm, off the record of course. The long awaited MP2600+, a chip intended for dual multiprocessing systems, will be introduced on the fourth of February next. Bartons - which come as the 2500+, the 2700+ and the 3000+ and which will have a fabulous 512K of cache but won't use silicon on insulator nor Super Silicon 28, as far as we can tell, are set to be introduced on February 7th.

Audio Titans Battle: Creative Labs vs. NVIDIA
The $150 Audigy 2 Platinum is the flagship product from Creative Labs. Sporting 24/192 DACs on all six channels and true 24/96 analog playback and recording, the Audigy 2 is the gaming sound card that comes closest to the prosumer sound cards. The equivalently priced $150 nForce2 platform represents NVIDIA's flagship platform processor. It also promises 64 hardware accelerated 3D audio streams, but claims to support 256 2D audio streams. Behind this processing power is Sensaura's HRTF algorithms for positional 3D audio, considered by many to be the reference standard. In a departure from our typical article format, we're going to throw up all the numbers first and then talk.

AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Review
The only thing working against the 2600+ at this point is the upcoming release of the Barton and Hammer CPU's, which are both coming out sometime this year. However, if you are looking for an AMD Athlon XP processor based on AMD's new Thoroughbred Revision "B" core, the 2600+ / 333 FSB is definitely a great processor to match up with your new nForce 2 or KT400 motherboard.

Credit Card-Size Hard Drive Can Hold 5GB
StorCard can contain from 100MB to more than 5GB of data on a plastic card. At first glance, it looks like a credit card, and even has a magnetic strip like a credit card, for potential use in standard credit card readers. The hard disk data, however, is accessed on a tiny spinning disk inside the thin card. The card actually has moveable parts inside its thin shell," says Bill Heil, vice president of StorCard. A spinning wheel made of Mylar is engaged when the card is inserted into a StorReader, a USB-connected drive or PC Card that reads and writes to the StorCard. The reader is expected to retail for under $100 and the cards for under $15 each, Heil says. The StorCard and StorReader are scheduled to become available in the second half of 2003.

Intel delays dual core processor
Intel said Thursday that it is pushing back the release of its first dual-core processor by a year to 2005 and adding a new microprocessor for servers to its Itanium II lineup. Intel had planned to release its first dual-core processor in 2004 in a microprocessor, code-named ``Montecito,'' but will now release it a year later, said Intel spokeswoman Erica Fields.
