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.

Nvidia NV30 30% faster than Radeon 9700 Pro
Nvidia will use DDR II memory running at 500MHz or 1GHz effective that will be the fastest memory used so far in this type of semiconductor, as we reported before. The NV30 chip will feature eight pipelines and two TMUs - that's one more than ATI - and this will give it quite a boost since it will be able to render 16 textures per pass.

New light shed on unbreakable encryption
Scientists at Northwestern University say they have harnessed the properties of light to encrypt information into code that can be cracked only one way: by breaking the physical laws of nature. This high-speed quantum cryptography method allowed the scientists to send encrypted data over a fiber-optic line at 250mbps (megabits per second), which the researchers said was more than 1,000 times faster than what was achievable with existing quantum technology.

Polymers may rocket Net speed to 145GHz
The scientists at Lucent Technologies' research arm have demonstrated in a controlled laboratory setting that certain polymer materials have physical properties to channel data signals at tremendous speeds. The rate could approach a heady 145GHz...much faster than widely used optical networks that typically clock in at about 10GHz, or 10 billion cycles per second.

Roxio Buys Napster for $5 Million
Failed online music-swapping service Napster is to be acquired by Roxio, which makes CD-burning software, for $5.3m (L3.6m) in cash and shares. Roxio will buy all the assets and intellectual property rights, but not any of the liabilities including those arising from litigation, the company said. Roxio's chief executive, Chris Gorog, said buying Napster would "expand our role in the digital media landscape and enhance our offerings to consumers".
