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.

Bios Guide Updated
Wonder what the Ras Precharge setting does? Got your interleaving mixed up with your PCI 2.1 Latency settings? You might want to head on over to lost circuits then, since they got all the tech confusion defined into one snazy little guide.

Hyperthreaded P4s hit Audigy snagette
A posting on the Ace's Hardware forum by a character called Sander Sassen claims that Audigy and Audigy 2 cards, rather than getting a welcome chime when entering XP with hyperthreading enabled, just ends up stuttering badly. Hyperthreading was revealed to an expectant world last week to cheers of acclamation from a bunch of hacks in a club near Leicester Square last week. Sassen, who runs the Hardware Analysis site, said that every effort to make the Creative babies work has met with failure. Creative Labs has not yet answered Sassen's emails about the problem, he said.

Memory prices falling again
Memory Watch site DRAM Exchange reports that the spot prices of memory, both DDR and SDRAM flavours, are beginning to show a decline. The site says that the prices on the spot market are falling to join the prices of contract memory, the prices PC manufacturers pay. The reason is, the site reckons, that the peak of the manufacturing season has been and gone, and there's no particularly bright news, whether from Comdex 2002 or from the industry itself to boost the prices. In fact, and as we reported earlier today, Comdex 2002 is looking decidedly underattended.

IBM working on cpu to rival the brain
The first supercomputers to approach and even surpass the processing power of the human brain are to be built by IBM, under a L184 million contract announced by the US Government yesterday. ASCI Purple and Blue Gene/L will be the fastest and most powerful machines built, with a combined capacity equal to the 500 best of today's computers. ASCI Purple, which will be built first and used to simulate nuclear tests, will be able to complete 100 thousand billion calculations per second - a speed known as 100 teraflops that some scientists say is comparable to the human brain. Blue Gene/L, which has a broader range of functions and will be used by US Department of Energy's three main laboratories, will be more powerful still, with a maximum speed of 360 teraflops.
