TechZone Heading

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.

Next Itanium to run at 1.5GHz
The new chip, code-named Madison, is similar to its Itanium 2 "McKinley" predecessor but is built with smaller circuitry that permits faster processing and more built-in high-speed "cache" memory. Intel disclosed the 1.5GHz speed in an agenda for a February processor show, the International Solid-State Circuits Conference.

"Hammer" to hold 100 million transistors
A chip with that many transistors is currently considered unusual. But when Hammer chips emerge in the first half of 2003, processors of that complexity will become increasingly common. That's because designers are increasing the size of caches, which are reservoirs of memory located on the processor for rapid data access, and adding other features. Details of AMD's forthcoming chip have been leaking out. The largest version of Hammer, for instance, will have 1MB of secondary cache, as well as an integrated memory controller for connecting the processor to a PC's memory, according to the company. Currently, memory controllers mostly sit on their own piece of silicon.

New Nforce1/2 Linux Drivers
-- Added PCI ID support for nForce2 MCP2-T and MCP2-A to the i810_audio driver.
-- Cleanup of spec file and Makefiles
-- SRPMs and tar files now use local system's i810_audio.c file, and complain if not there (this makes them more distribution independent)
-- Changed code to compile properly with gcc3.X and gcc2.X
-- Added support for Mandrake 9.0 and Red Hat 8.0
-- nForce2 support for network driver

Radeon 9500 Pro Reviewage
The Radeon 9500 Pro...punching nvidia right where it the mainstream market.

Looks like ATI is really taking alot of shots while nvidia is busy getting the Geforce FX out.
