It's feeling like the calm before the storm here around the HH Northeast labs. There is an onslaught of new gear on its way to us and a few of very large OEMs preparing for some major launches in the next few weeks. If you take a look around at some of the Computex coverage on the web (I'll provide a link or two for you in the news here as well), you'll get an idea what's on deck in the HH Lab. New Alderwood, Canterwood, DDR2 and PCI Express products abound people. Hardware goodness and plenty of it, you've got to love that. We'll be stressed on deadlines here in the next few weeks but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Morning juice coming at ya here..
Computex 2004 coverage Day 1 and Day 2 here, at Hardware Analysis:
"Computex was off to a hot and humid start today and what was obvious from the start is that both Nvidia and ATi are trying very hard to convince customers that they currently have the best performing solution. Also, Asrock's K8 Combo, featuring both a 939-pin and 754-pin socket. Obviously you cannot run two processors simultaneously."
Computex VIA Technology Forum at PC Perspective:
" In fact, Dirk made quite the bold statement during this speech, that in no uncertain terms, the x86 instruction set is the only architecture the world would ever need. The ability to create new instruction sets is yesterday's news, he claims."
Intel Prescott CPU heatsinks the size of small elephants @ the Inq:
"Just to taunt those who have a complex about such things... I grabbed a few snaps of some monster heatsinks from ASUSTeK and Foxconn's exhibition booths in progress."
Intel Pentium-M 735 (1.7 GHz) at the GamePC Labs: Great stuff from the Game PC gang as usual and a great look at Intel's killer new mobile CPU!
"Today at GamePC, we've taken a look at the new Pentium-M 735, the first CPU from Intel to use their new processor naming scheme. The 735 is the first readily available CPU on the market which is based on the new Dothan core, Intel's second 90 nanometer manufactured processor. The Pentium-M 735 runs at 1.7 GHz, has 2MB of on-die L2 cache, and actually consumes less power and runs cooler in comparison to previous Pentium-M CPU's"
Alrighty then... I'm off like a Prom dress.
