Is that a G4 or a P4?
Kyle and the gang over at the OCP have decided to tear into a Powermac G4 case and flip it around to the darkside of PC's. Flashing out in a Black and Red design, this goes one step beyond the normal mac bashing to whole new heights of PC user delight.

AMD Athlon XP 2600+ vs Intel Pentium 4 2.53GHz
"I hear it almost every time I am out consulting a job, someone will say is that AMD 2100+ a 2.1GHz CPU or a 1.53Ghz CPU with a complete blank stare on their face. This time we see AMD coming at us with a new .13 Micron solution called the 2600+ (actual clock speed 2.13GHz). AMD has slated this chip to be the killer of the Intel 2.53GHz P4, which is the current affordable high end CPU that dominates the market."

3GHz Pentium 4 Requires New Motherboards
One of the more interesting sessions at Intel's Fall Developer Forum 2002 covered the requirements for thermal management of the upcoming 3.06GHz Pentium 4. Pushing the clock rate that high really pushes the power envelope of the P4 to heights not seen since the original 0.18 micron Willamette, as the following chart demonstrates.

Windows Media Player 9 tough to shake
