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.

Been waiting for the next generation Pentium IV? Excited about more cache, increased performance, and a die shrink? Well put your axe away because northwood is one christmas tree thats not ready yet. Yes once again, even with core and cache improvements, the P4 is still the underdog in todays performance race.

Building a workstation? Ace is up his own sleeve with some good insider information on workstation construction. Some good benchmark comparisons, and as always, full of useful information.

Anand pimps out some AMD 768MPX coverage. Check it out if you like knowing how your machine actually works.

Its also a great article to show how slow Xeon's really are. Nothing like seeing a dual 1.2 beat a dual 1.7 to make your day.

Athlon XP chips will not function in SMP mode on the new AMD 768 MPX motherboards due to hardware detecting the XP cpu's.

Possible USB problem with the new MPX chipset. Not confirmed yet.

Jan 7th, 2002 Northwood (478 P4) release along with the Athlon 2000+ XP. Expect price war to go insane at this point.

Jan 27th, 2002 Intel Price cut/Amd Price Cut. Also rumors of Nv25 Nvidia releases.

Burnproof isn't referring to your apartment floor. Tom makes sure the public understands the benifits and liabilities of a variety of cd burners, all in glorious 32 bit color.

Need a new video card for christmas? Then Tom's your santa. He pushes his beard aside and reviews a whopping 21 Titanium Geforce cards.

In case you missed them, v 4.36v of the via drivers is available. As always, backup all critical data before patching critical system files...unless you enjoy frustration.

Anand, as always, finds out where your motherboard lives, and reviews her performance...this time all the i845-D boards were taken from their homes.

Dell cuts out itaninum from their workstation line, quoting that sales is not high enough to warrant continued construction of this high end workstation/server.

Intel also chooses to secretely release the i845-D, the Pentium IV DDR platform. Well geez guys, i guess you finally admited how much RAMBUS SUCKS.
