ATI Radeon 9800 XT review
ATI's Radeon 9800 XT is an amazing product, expensive, but amazing. The 9800 XT is fast and very efficient with it's quality settings in Anisotropic Filtering and Anti Aliasing. Installation was as easy as a breeze, no problems at all. Stability then, it never crashed even once except with the game Call of Duty, that's driver related though and probably will be fixed in future catalyst driver releases.

Overclocking the Athlon64 3200+
ASUS K8V Deluxe - After the somewhat disappointing overclocking experience with the initial BIOS revision of the ASUS K8V and the Athlon64 3200+, LostCircuits used the latest production BIOS Rev. 1003 that, amongst other new features allows manual changing of the frequency and voltage ID (FID and VID). Overall, the new BIOS greatly increases stability as well as overclocking potential, after all, they were able to crank up the speed to 240 MHz and run 100% stable at 235 MHz.

High-End P4: Better, Not Best
With the unexpected announcement of the company's first gaming-oriented processor--the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition--Intel obviously hoped to steal some thunder from AMD's Athlon 64 launch. But while PC World tests show that the new P4 EE outruns a standard Pentium 4, AMD's shipping Athlon 64 FX-51 outperforms both.

Iomega Storage Hits 35GB
The new storage format for consumers is Digital Capture Technology (DCT). It will be launched in the first half of next year, Scott Sheehan, vice president of business development at Iomega, said at a news conference in Tokyo. DCT disks are about 2 inches in diameter and look similar to the company's now-defunct Pocket Zip, or Clik, disks but can hold much more data. First-generation versions will have a capacity of 1.5GB, compared with the 100MB of the Pocket Zip.

Intel to take P4EE to 3.4GHz
Intel will take the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition - along with the regular version - to 3.4GHz during the first quarter of 2004, presumably in a buffer for the initial absence of high clock frequency versions of the next generation of the Pentium 4, the 90nm "Prescott".
