Good morning gang.  There is some good happening going on with some news out of Computex and DVD and Athlon64 lovin.  So without further delay, here is your morning news: The Guys at Hardwarezoom.com got the chance to tour the ABIT manufacturing facility in Taiwan: "Wonder how Abit did their motherboard testing? Want to know their working environment? Hardwarezoom was invited to visit Abit test labs in Taiwan and in this article, we have plenty of photos to show. Take a look and you will know why they are one of the best motherboard manufacturer in the world." While they were there, they spent some time at a little event called Computex in Taipei: "1st June 2004 mark... Read more...
Good morning folks, I hope you survived the night okay :)  In the effort of saving time this AM, we are going to skip over the banter and get right down to business.  So, go grab a cup of coffee and settle in for a long read.  Here is your morning shot of juice... Athlon 64 FX-53 & Athlon 64 3800+ Socket 939 Processor Review @ Sharky Extreme "The introduction of the AMD64 line of processors was a rousing success on many levels, but there were a few niggling issues to address. The Athlon 64 FX-51 940-pin represented the new high-end of the processor scale, featured a powerful dual-channel memory controller, and supported both 32 and 64-bit software, but it could only use...

  Since we last took a look at their Athlon 64 FX-53 back in March, AMD has remained relatively quiet.  There was a low profile release of the mid-range Athlon 64 2800+ into the channel, but nothing really new has come from CPU lines at AMD for almost 3 months, which is an eternity in "silicon years".  AMD's relative silence comes to an end today however, with the introduction of four new desktop processors and a new socket standard that brings a common infrastructure to the entire Athlon 64 line-up.  Standard Athlon 64s and high-end Athlon 64 FX processors will both utilize the new 939-pin socket that officially debuts today. We've got both of AMD's new flagship... Read more...
Good Morning Folks! BW here to let you all know that we've just posted a review of AMD's brand new 939-pin Athlon 64 FX-53 and Athlon 64 3800 processors. With these new CPUs, the flagship FX no longer requires registered memory and the 3800 is built using a new core dubbed "Newcastle" that loses 512K of cache, but gains a 128-bit memory controller. We've got a ton of interesting pics and ran a slew of different benchmarks, comparing them to 8 other processors throughout. Click here to take a look...

AMD's Athlon 64 FX-53 The FX Gets Its First Speed Bump... By, Marco Chiappetta March 18, 2004 Almost 6 months have passed since the initial release of the AMD Athlon 64.  In September '03, AMD released two new desktop processors, the Athlon 64 3200+ clocked at 2.0GHz and a premium product dubbed the Athlon 64 FX-51, clocked at 2.2GHz.  The FX and standard Athlon 64 shared the same base architecture, but with the FX-51 AMD kept the 128-bit memory controller found in their Opteron line of server CPUs intact.  The standard Athlon 64's memory controller is 64-bits wide and doesn't require the use of registered DIMMs.  The FX-51 was to be AMD's premium product, targeted at hardcore...

The AMD Athlon 64 3400+: The Athlon 64 Gets Its First Speed Bump... By, Marco Chiappetta January 6, 2004 AMD closed out 2003 by quietly releasing the Athlon 64 3000+.  The 3000+ was clocked at the same 2.0GHz as the Athlon 64 3200+, and it used the same 754 pin socket, but it featured 512K of L1 cache, only half that of the 3200+.  Its performance, however, was only slightly behind that of the 3200+, and it was priced much more affordably at around $200 U.S.  The 3000+ is exactly the type of CPU mainstream buyers gobble up in droves, but this almost low profile launch was rather unusual, with all the fan-fare being made about the new core in general.  AMD and Intel have been...

The Athlon 64 FX-51 Processor AMD Drops the Hammer, On Your Desktop! By, Marco Chiappetta And Dave Altavilla September 23, 2003 AMD'S HECTOR RUIZ WITH AN ATHLON 64 It has been about two years, since AMD first divulged information about their "K8" architecture, also known as the "Hammer", at the Microprocessor Forum in 2001.  At the time, AMD was having much success with their "K7" line of processors.  Enthusiasts and industry analyst were eager to see just what AMD could do with their next generation processor architecture.  AMD was no longer following in Intel's footsteps.  They were introducing new technology in an effort to become an industry...
