History Of The Computer, MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI, and more!
Hey folks, it's time for one more update. If your checking in for the first time, Marco has taken a look at the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra, which is Nvidia's latest and greatest Mobile GPU. We also have a couple more reviews for the new Pentium chips, from hardwarezone and t-break. Goodnight all, enjoy the rest of the news :)
"Unlike most devices, the computer is one of the few inventions that does not have one specific inventor. Throughout the development of the computer, many people have added their creations to the list required to make a computer work. Some of the inventions have been different types of computers, and some of them were parts required to allow computers to be developed further."
"The MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI is actually the third revision of MSI's popular K8N Neo series, and it's now based on the brand new nVIDIA nForce4 SLI chipset. The motherboard supports Socket 939 AMD Athlon64 processors with HyperTransport running at a smooth 1 GHz..."
"...With FX-55, all that means is the use of the 14x multiplier at the standard 200MHz dHTT (derived HTT, calculated by the use of the base HTT clock and clock divisors). While it's not quite a front-side bus, since the memory controller always runs at core frequency, it's close."
"Intel has bumped up the CPU variety in both performance and features with a new line of P4 6xx series of processors as well as a new Extreme Edition version for gamers too. Read on to see what these 64-bit desktop processors were capable in today's usage patterns."
"...However, between that time and today, the Pentium4 CPU got upgraded to a 1MB cache and now a 2MB L2 cache while the 3.73GHz' L3 cache got replaced by an L2 cache of the same size due to its move to the Prescott core."
