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.

News on Amd Pricing with a very interesting note



"AMD has already completed its 760MP dual chipset and is readying this for a
launch also likely to be in the middle of May."



PC166 Image


PC166 SDRAM...what next. This memory will run at 180 megahertz according to
sources. Crazy....Just Plain Crazy.

Iwill, the main motherboard I recommend for Amd's now, is reporting a very
small bad batch of KK266's.



"Recently, we've seen great success in our KK266 motherboard, however with
great success also comes responsibility. Our most recent version 1.2 KK266
has had a resistor failure causing multiplier locks when attempting to
overclock on ver 1.2 motherboards. This is a hardware issue, and the
motherboards must be replaced with modified motherboards. I've attached our
news release for all current consumers that have purchased the Iwill KK266,
and our resolution. I know many overclockers come to your sites for advice
and read your reviews, and I hope you'll help me post this fix for a quick
resolution." (Courtsy of Hardocp)

Its a bird, Its a plane...Its a competitor to Nvidia? =) PowerVr 3 comes
back with a vengenance.
(The agressive pricing of this card is going to slap the GF2 Mx prices down)
