Techbits

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.

Cpu in a shoe-box. A tiny alumnium box. This could make quite an awesome render box.

Down comes the hammer and out goes the competition. AMD's Hammer 64 bit architecture. Who do you want to crush today?

Hercules busts out into the LCD market, with a display targeted to those of us who need extremely fast response times...gamers. So why's that important you say? Because CG people MAKE games.

Need Storage? Try your roomates closet. Need a nice backup solution? Try a DVD+RW.

Need a faster video card? Well before you throw away the old one, try strapping a huge heatsink on it and overclocking. Free speed baby.

There seems to be some serious evidence floating around the web that ATI used specific optimizations in the new Radeon drivers to specifically optimize the Quake3 benchmark process, thus modifying the actual performance scores. Makes you wonder what else was done in those driver sets...

The Radeon 8500 on a Athlon XP. Performs better then on a PIV platform, but the most interesting thing is how poorly ALL the video cards perform under Windows XP.
