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.

Wet and wild doesn't begin to describe it. Throwing out another plug to Bruce over at for hooking up with a whole slew of awesome water cooling products, which we'll be using to super charge a northwood system to over 2.4 ghz, for testing against a variety of amd offerings. Thanks Bruce!

Chuck, over at puicorp, has provided 3dluvr with some great dual amd hardware, which we'll be testing in a variety of upcoming articles, including one coming up shortly. Thanks Chuck!

Legacy of Free? Not its not a sequel to legacy of kain, but one of the first steps in removing alot of the useless motherboard crap we don't use anymore.

This particular board from abit features no floppy, no pport, no serial, and no ps/2 slots. Instead its got onboard sound, firewire, ethernet, raid, and extra usb ports. Gotta love it.

Hey Guys,

Please forgive the lack of updates to techbits. There was a pretty long period of no real news, so I stopped checking for a few days, then the real job kicked in, and all this other life stuff. So here she goes again, and hopefully they'll stay pretty current (within 1-3 days).

Thanks for reading.

Greg Hess

YS-TECH blows the hardware community...with a radical new fan design. By moving the drive motor to the edges of the fan, they're reducing noise, while simultanously increasing airflow. Genius, pure genius.

IBM produces harddrives that will work for 8 to 11 hours a day! With this amazing new technology, thousands of CG professionals will be finally be able to go home thanks to this impressive technology.

I wonder if anyone spoke to IBM's marketing department before they let loose this information.

Creative Labs buys 3dlabs. Entire workstation community gasps in anguish as one of the founders of opengl is put under one of the worst company names in the business. The list of companies Creative Labs has destroyed through purchasing is long and harsh. Lets hope 3dlabs doesn't join the discarded graveyard of forgotten technology.

Thoroughbred processors to be released later this month, providing another long stream of fpu annilators onto the market. As mentioned before, make sure the motherboard you buy today, is Tbred ready...otherwise you'll be stuck at 2100+ XP while your friend runs happily along at 2800+.

Apple G4's utterly decimated by 18 month old Pentium. Story at 11.

Seriously though, the utter pathetic fpu power of the G4 really begs the question...why are people porting cg apps to it?

Abit unveils the next generation statistics of their new motherboard line...Legacy free. Thats right folks, time to finally retire those old keyboards and mice, cause you won't find any PS/2 connectors on this board.
