A.I. For Dummies, Battle of the AMD64 PCI-E Chipsets, and more!
Hey guys, here's your first dose of news for the day. If your not interested in anything that ATI, Intel, or AMD has to offer, then how about taking a look at the "iPod Shuffle Killer", the Samsung YP-T7X. Enjoy!
"Today, we take a look at the ULi M1695 chipset for the AMD platform that should not only work well for system integrators but also for end-users in the process of upgrading their systems. Paired with the ULi M1567 Southbridge, the platform provides something ULi calls TGi- Triple Graphics Interface that allows simultaneous support for a PCI-E x16, an AGP 8X and a PCI graphics cards on the same motherboard."
"Dollar for dollar, you still just can't beat the value and features compressed into this one computer peripheral. It's a TV, it's a top notch gaming card, it's an FM Radio, it's a personal video recorder, well, I guess it is pretty darn well everything. You buy it, you install it and instantly your drab and boring computer has an amazing amount of potential and power needed to turn it into an excellent gamer or a home theater system."
"I've never really had an interest in artificial intelligence until recently when I started studying the very basics at university. The only AI Science Fiction that's ever actually interested me was 'Blade Runner' and its novel, 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' written by Philip K. Dick. The subtext of the story deals with AI becoming self-aware but still unaware of its true nature, a concept that interested me greatly. Real AI is quite fascinating and in many ways entirely different to what I expected."
"Today 3DXtreme has the pleasure of having a look at two motherboards based on competing chipsets for the AMD64 platform. The Chaintech VNF4 Ultra being based on the Nvidia nForce4 Ultra chipset and the Albatron K8X890 ProII based on the VIA K8T890 chipset. They both sport PCI-Express and a number of features. But the real question is whether they perform equally and if they will let us overclock. Let's take a closer look... "
"The microprocessor industry has received a nice shake since AMD's announcement of filing an antitrust complaint against Intel due to its monopoly in the market. Whether all of AMD's claims in its 48-page complaint are valid is up to the court to decide and Intel to counter argue, but at least some of what AMD states is 110 percent correct."
