When we think of TV tuner cards, we typically envision a standard PCI based card designed for PC use.  For laptop users, the options are slim, but they do exist.  USB or FireWire based solutions are available, but this leaves you with cable management issue on your desktop.  The next option is a CardBus type tuner like the Sicuro DEC-900 Cardbus TV Tuner with FM Radio which fits in a standard PCMCIA slot.  ThinkComputers.org has a full write up on this pint sized TV/FM tuner, covering all of the products finer points. "Home theater PCs are very popular these days, being able to use your PC to listen to the radio, watch movies,... Read more...

Hey folks, after a long and intense battle with Windows Networking, I'm here to deliver the news. Most people wouldn't consider networking very intense, but as many of you know... it can be. Yeah I'm a geek, and I love it :) Anyway folks, here's your news. Enjoy! AOpen i915Pa-PLF Motherboard Review @ PCStats "The AOpen i915Pa-PLF motherboard is a socket 775 Intel Pentium 4 solution designed for mainstream users getting ready to upgrade a little of everything. Obviously based on the Intel 915P chipset, this blackened-PCB motherboard supports current 800/533MHz FSB Socket 775 CPUs (Celeron or Pentium 4), and requires a PCI-Express compatible video card. AGP videocards are not supported at... Read more...
  Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz Performance Evaluation Another speed bump served up by Intel with ease By, Dave Altavilla June 23, 2003   Once again, Intel has decided to turn up the heat on their arch rival, AMD.  In a sort of digital ying-yang, the battle for Performance Desktop and Workstation Processor leadership, presses on relentlessly.  Like opposite yet mutual compliments, Intel releases the 3GHz P4 with 800MHz system bus and AMD lets fly with the Athlon XP 3200+.  It's almost like nature intended it to be, isn't it?  As Intel and AMD duke it out, in an effort to out class the competition, the end user community enjoys yet another incremental performance enhancement. ...

  Intel's Pentium 4 3GHz With 800MHz System Bus And The i875P "Canterwood" Chipset More bandwidth and leading edge desktop technology for the P4 By, Dave Altavilla and Chris Angelini April 14, 2003   Time certainly does fly when you are clipping along at 3GHz, doesn't it?  It has been a whole 5 months since Intel released their last processor speed bump.  Intel actually let this one ride a little bit it seems.  In early February, AMD let loose with their new "Barton" core based Athlon XP 3000+ (2.166GHz), in an effort to keep pace with Intel's brute force approach to processing.  Don't misunderstand us, there certainly is nothing wrong with "brute...

  Intel's Pentium 4 with 533MHz Bus and The i850E Chipset 2.4 and 2.53GHz performance with a 533MHz Front Side Bus By, Dave Altavilla May 6, 2002 There are many architectural attributes of Intel's Pentium 4 processor, that will drive incremental performance for CPU core, as the months and years roll on, in their battle against their primary competitor, Advanced Micro Devices.  Intel engineered the P4 core with a staggeringly deep 20 stage pipeline, that allows clock frequencies to scale with ease.  There are certainly pros and cons to having this deeply pipelined architecture.  However, in a market where MHz and GHz are king, not only will more clock cycles drive performance,...

The Soyo SY-6ICA Motherboard Soyo's RAMBUS Driven i820 Offering By, Dave "Davo" Altavilla - 5/17/00 Here we are again with yet another look at a motherboard from a top notch supplier based on Intel's controversial chipset, the i820.  Whether you are interested in SDRAM supported designs with Intel's infamous MTH (memory transfer hub) or a somewhat expensive RAMBUS implementation, there is  definitely no shortage of opinions to go around about this new chipset and the motherboards designed with it.   We tend to avoid the rumor mill and chatter surrounding the industry and the products it spawns but rather approach reviews of the products made available to us with...
