AGP vs PCI-E, Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 w/ Go 6800 Ultra, and more!
Hey folks, today we've got a couple of announcements from Intel. You can read about the "New WiMAX Silicon Solution" below, and you can check out the one on Dual Core PC's. Good night all :)
Intel Introduces New WiMAX Silicon Solution To Expand The Reach Of Broadband Internet
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 18, 2005 - Intel Corporation today announced the availability of its first WiMAX product, providing equipment manufacturers and carriers the ability to deliver next-generation wireless broadband networks around the world.
In addition, several service providers worldwide announced plans to begin commercial WiMAX trials based on Intel silicon products later this year, giving consumers and businesses a glimpse at this emerging wireless high-speed broadband technology. Key equipment providers also announced WiMAX solutions based on Intel's product.
WiMAX, short for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a standards-based wireless technology for providing high-speed, last-mile broadband connectivity to homes and businesses and for mobile wireless networks. Intel's WiMAX silicon delivers the features needed to provide cost-effective, high-speed wireless modems for homes and businesses. Initial deployments will enable delivery of broadband Internet access to remote areas not currently served by DSL or cable, and will make it possible to wirelessly connect buildings up to several miles apart. Because it is standards-based, WiMAX technology is expected to make it easier and more cost-effective for new and existing broadband users to enjoy wireless Internet access.

"The format revolution has happened, and the new standards introduced by the industry have all made a solid appearance in just about every motherboard format out there. The most exciting change for computer enthusiasts was easily the introduction of the PCI-E bus system, which promised to deliver the ever increasingly powerful GPUs in graphics cards from the shackles of AGP... but does it?"
"Given the high power rating of this unit, and the current state of computer systems, I was surprised by the omission of explicit PCIe graphics card support. A power supply unit like this could be ideal for a high end PCIe graphics card, many of which require a special 6-pin power connector. The X-Finity would look sharp in a modded gaming rig, that just might feature two PCIe cards for dual display or perhaps even SLi."
"Personally, I very like the design of this Rocket Fanless Liquid Cooling System, with all the LED's and UV reactive design. It will be great for case modding. As for the performance, it was very good compare to those stock cooler, you can refer to the cooling performance at the testing section. It was a totally fanless and noiseless water cooling kit. The Rocket is support the Intel P4 ( Socket 478 ), P4 LGA 775, AMD K8 and K7."
"Mobile gaming has never looked so good. Read inside to see what Dell is bringing to the table with the new Inspiron XPS Gen 2 using the new NVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 Ultra GPU. Could this be the best gaming notebook ever?"
