Techbits

Greg
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.

New marketing campaign by apple. PC's are faster. Mac users riot.




To quote one user.

"I spent $1,800 on a computer that's slower than the $400 eMachine it replaced," one iMac user wrote in an e-mail "

You don't have to be big, to be bad ass. Tweak3D reviews the new SS50 Shuttle barebones system. Pimpin out in alumnium, this baby packs a serious punch for the size.

Dell tries to make excuses to why their changing motherboard standards to fit their needs. Anyone need to be ripped off sometime soon? Buy a Dell, non standard ATX powersupplies and motherboards.


Is it better? No. Does it give Dell more money by forcing you to upgrade through them? Yes. Does that money come out of your pocket? Yes.

Coolermaster listens to the public...or at least their wives, and produces a low noise HHC-001 Heatpipe.

AMD kills the Duron. Poor little chip, all you needed was a little bit more l2 cache.



Instead AMD will be offering Athlon processors at all price ranges. Mmm....1.333 ghz athlon chips at duron prices.

Nvidia releases some new graphics technology. (Go figure). That's going to accelerate stuff up the wazzo. Speed and competition. Bring it on people.

Pioneer releases a new updated version of their DVD-RW drive, the A03. Now the A04 has some updates and fixes, but no magical 500x DVD-R speed yet =(.

IBM withdrawls out the harddrive business. Looks like the recent harddrive failures was too much for the brandname to take. Didn't we just see a whole lot of commercials about IBM reliability?
