Review of a Dual Xeon system. Unfortuantly they decide not to do any render tests with 3dsmax4. Looks decently speedy, though not really much faster then a dual pentium III.

Additional Note: These are not the 512k l2 cache xeons which will be coming out later.

Microsoft announces pricing and release date for the xbox. Novemeber 8, 2001 at 299.00 USD. Why am I mentioning this? Cause on that date no 3d aritst is going to get any work done.
