The Inquirer is reporting that Intel is facing some major issues regarding FSB speeds with their upcoming processor architectures. Apparently, there are some major bandwidth considerations which must be made as multiple cores will all be fighting for real estate to dump data. Could Intel be forced to look beyond the traditional FSB and use another interconnect such as HyperTransport 3.0? Outside one tech session here, a source mentioned that 1,600 FSB is the practical limit for the highly tuned point-to-point FSB on 2006 Conroe and Woodcrest, even after overclocking, assuming reliable long-term operation. With some tweaking, the whisper says that 1,333 FSB (and not a hertz more) could be done... Read more...
PC Perspective has finally solved a longstanding issue regarding lockup issues for some GeForce 7900 GTX owners. Apparently, yields for G71 are not quite as high as some graphics card vendors originally thought as the random lockups have been attributed to overly optimistic factory overclocks on frequencies. In theory, it is a bit surprising to have some blatant issues such as this somehow get by the QA departments in several major graphics card vendors. I surely hope that all of NVIDIA's and ATI's AIC partners take a good, hard look at this situation and remedy their QA testing methods so this doesn't happen again. Sending bad product out to thousands of gamers is an easy... Read more...
Maxtor has just posted some new firmware which apparently solves any issues experienced when using the company's SATA II hard drives with an nForce4-equipped motherboard. Specifically, this new firmware fixes issues with DiamondMax 10, DiamondMax 11, MaxLine III, and MaxLine Pro 500 hard drives. With this solution coming direct from the hard drive vendor, it makes you wonder whether the issues rests within the chipset or within the drives themselves.The following issues have been identified with Maxtor SATA II drives and the nVidia nForce4 controller. 1)No detection 2)Anomalous behavior such as data corruption...

Our colleagues over at the TechReport have some new information regarding Intel's recently released Pentium Extreme Edition 955 (Presler). They had a bit of trouble with their initial sample that has since been resolved, but the solution had some unwanted side effects. "You may recall that we had some problems with our Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955 setup that caused us to delay our review a bit. The motherboard, CPU, and cooler combo we received from Intel for review didn't always cool the CPU sufficiently under load, leading to thermal throttling. We've now tested a production Intel CPU/motherboard/cooler combo, and we have some good news... Read more...
Yeah folks, it's late, but the news keeps on rolling! I'm sure many of you are wanting to get your hands on ATI's new Radeon X1800XT, so I've been looking around the net a bit... nothing. A few sites list them, but the adventure stops with the "out of stock" label. In other news, X-Bit labs has been known for their CPU comparison articles, and today they've added their "Contemporary CPUs and New Games: No Way to Delusions!" article to their arsenal. This is a great read for you CPU shoppers who aren't sure if AMD or Intel has the best gaming processors. Enjoy the news, goodnight all!
