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.

The register learns about AXIA cpus. Basically AMD core's which have the ability, if properly cooled and given love and tenderness, to reach 1.5 ghz. Oh did I mention they're just 1 ghz chips? 300A anyone?

"3dluvr and Greg Hess do not encourage overclocking, you break it, you pay for it, or your parents/spouse do."

Non Conductive Shims. For protecting your most valued investment...your cpu.

Pentium IV 1.7 GHZ Chips have hit the streets and are available for sale. This the added 200 megahertz of performance, maybe now they'll beat the 1.0 Ghz Thunderbirds.

"Advanced Micro Devices' chief of the software research and development group has promised that the Linux operating system and AMD's forthcoming 64-bit architecture will be compatible. "

These are bulk prices, and you can expect to find them even cheaper from online retailers.

Its come to my attention that the reason for the sudden drop in DDR prices is because of upcoming DDR dimms, pc2600 and pc3100, which will be using a new DIMM type, rendering all motherboards supporting pc1600 and pc2100 obsolete. It might be a smart move to wait on DDR till the new dimm types are established and won't change like the P4 in 6 months.

"Mac Os X is a Piece of Crap"

Yet another less then favorable review of the new operating system. I want my BeOS.

Anand reviews the MSI 649D Pro, Dual F-CPU Motherboard. What does he think? Read his review to find out. Or become a mind reader.

Amd zone takes a look at the budget Radeon graphics card. This puppy has the ability to dual-head, much like matrox and the gf2mx twin view cards. However looks like the poor ATI win2k drivers pull the card down again.
