Our friends at Intel sent us a few tid-bits from the IDF Day 1 slide-set.     We'll summarize things a bit for you here and touch on the top salient take-aways.  In short, Intel is taking the best features of both their Desktop and...

  It's no secret that Intel has occassionally been playing a bit of catchup this year in the desktop and workstation processor arena.  AMD's Athlon 64 releases have recently positioned the company in the lead from a general performance standpoint.  Additionally, the Athlon 64 was the first processor to market with 64-bit extensions and processing capabilities, although there really hasn't been much if any impact in consumer or business usage models for the new architecture because there are scarce few 64-bit applications available, much less a mainstream 64-bit OS.  Of course that's something Intel will be quick to point out as an "I told you so," but you've...

Good morning all :)  Sorry about the later update, yours truly is feeling really under the weather today.  So, I don't mean to be rude, but we are going to get things started so I can get some rest.  Here is your AM update...  Thermaltake PurePower 680W Power Supply @ Bjorn3D "After you stop drooling at the thought of having dual video cards in an SLI setup, you come to realize some practical concerns. Cost is the most obvious one. Most of us struggle to pay $450 for one video card, but spending $900 to $1,000 on two is just ludicrous to many people. Beyond the cost though are other important concerns, like power requirements. More and more power supplies are including... Read more...
