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.

Ali Magic boards and the Thunderbird and Duron Processors. How do these boards fair? Looks like their a bit premature with stability and performance issues.

Beta Fix for the The Via Southbridge and Sblive problem. Also another blurb on intel's SMP/SMT platform.

"It will be launched at up to 1.7GHz, matching the P4. The processor will include a technology called SMT, or Simultaneous Multi-Threading, which mimics two 'virtual' processors in each XEON core. Software will have to be specifically written to support this feature. The processor will have the same cache configuration as P4, with 8KB L1 and 256KB L2. More expensive versions with up to 2MB of L3 cache will be available later. XEON will use a new Socket603, and will rquire new chipsets. The only chipset available on launch will be Intel's i860, which supports up to 4GB of RDRAM through four channels.

Despite all these enhancements, a single XEON will hardly be any faster then a single Pentium 4, until we see some larger cache versions and SMT support" - Via Hardware

Here's a sniplet of news from the SMP Intel Front.

Since this is a relatively insignificant reason for the delay of the product launch, Intel has every chance to be through quite soon and to announce the newcomer on May 21 already. The mainboard manufacturers in their turn were ready with their dual-processor Socket603 mainboards based on i860 Colusa core logic right in time. So, by the time Foster is finally launched, Iwill, Tyan and Supermicro will be ready to offer their solutions for this processor. The boards are expected to cost around $800-$1000. "

It looks like, before adding the price of memory into the Mix, that it will be impossible to get either a Dual Intel solution, or Dual AMD solution for less then 2,000 USD.
