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.

MIT FREE. Well almost free.

"Another difference between the M.I.T. plan and other Internet initiatives is that it makes no effort to offer full-fledged, for-credit courses online. Rather, it will offer course materials as ingredients of learning that can then be combined with teacher-student interaction somewhere else or simply explored by, say, professors in Chile or precocious high school students in Bangladesh."

PC166 Memory. One wonders if DDR is actually necessary or if we'll just catch up to DDR speeds in a few more months.

Geforce 3 vs Geforce 2. The real story. Kyle smacks out a comparison using future benchmarks, aka ones optimized and ready for the GF3. Can you say smack down? The Geforce 3 Ultra WILL be the card to buy in a few months.

Socket A Chipset Review. Anand compares the Via KT133A, AMD 760 and the ALI chipsets. Helps you understand how important it is to get all the pins in the correct holes.

(Looks like DDR performance isn't really in great need right now)

Creative Acknowledges VIA problem.

(This is a verbatim quote. Credit goes to [H]ard|OCP forum for this important info)

"Creative labs have actually acknowledged a problem with VIA chipsets and the sblive. They have known about it for two years but have denied everything up until now. Symptoms range from IDE2 transfers to IDE1 *large file* lockups, sound crackling, popping, stuttering in games, system pauses/slowdowns, etc...It has to do with a latency issue which I'm not going to fully explain atm cuz i'm too tired. If you have a similar problem, please post the necessary information in this thread which was started by John Gatt from VIA. Thanx for your time.

Class action lawsuit against Iomega. Get your free money if you ever bought a zip drive between 1999 and 2001.

3 cards. You guys are so bad.
