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...

Good morning friends, how are we doing this AM?  My world was fairly mundane last night; I just kicked back with some tunes and a good book.  However, judging by the amount of news in my in-box it looks like others were quite busy...

The computer industry has been in a state of flux for the past few years.  As the market continues to grow and new technologies continue to evolve, manufacturers are becoming more creative with their products.  One of the most successful of these new offerings is the mini-PC, which has given the industry a nice shot in the arm.  While the mini-PC market has been become a staple for users who want to integrate custom multimedia systems into their home entertainment system, they are not the only choice.  As the PC evolves, and becomes more of a central household component, some users will demand more expandability than what the current mini-PC can offer.  This is resulting...

Intel Pentium 4 3.4GHz "Prescott" And Pentium 4 3.4GHz "Northwood" By, Dave Altavilla March 22, 2004 Last week AMD launched their latest "enthusiast" class processor, with the unveiling of the Athlon 64 FX-53.  Today, Intel returns the volley with the launch of two 3.4GHz Pentium 4 CPUs based on their Prescott and Northwood cores.  In our FX-53 piece, it was obvious that Intel has some catch-up work on their hands, as AMD's new flagship defiantly manhandled even the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition in more than a few instances of our benchmark suite.  What was perhaps more impressive was the way the FX-53 took the lead position, while maintaining a tepid...

Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz Prescott And Pentium 4 3.4GHz  Extreme Edition Significant changes in P4 architecture bring future scalability By, Dave Altavilla February 1, 2004 During the course of the year in 2003, AMD and Intel were engaged in a rigorous competition of raw MHz versus IPC (instructions per clock cycle) marketing.  While Intel had taken the road of brute force computing, with the Pentium 4's "Hyper-Pipeline" architecture, AMD was still selling on performance metrics not directly tied to clock speeds.  A 2.2GHz Athlon CPU chiming in with a "3200+" branding is at first glance, a tough sell.  However, the benchmarks and leading indicators in performance...

  The Asus P4S800D-E  Motherboard Pentium 4 Powered Performance With The SiS 655TX Chipset By: Dave Altavilla December 22, 2003 All year we've been waiting for a chipset manufacturer to get into the Pentium 4 chipset arena with a Dual Channel DDR capable offering that finally gave Intel something to sweat over.  We've seen offerings from VIA and SiS this year but the P4X400 and SiS648, while they were decent low cost solutions, were nothing to write home about performance wise, when compared to an i865 Springdale or i875 Canterwood based motherboard.  Although these chipsets weren't targeted at taking on Springdale or Canterwood directly, since they were "value"...

The Iwill XP4-G Mini-PC Iwill Enters the SFF Fray... By, Marco Chiappetta June 25, 2003 Small Form Factor, or SFF PCs have been getting a ton of press lately.  In late 2001 Shuttle introduced their SV24, and from then on the market has simply exploded.  Now, a myriad of different OEMs offer mini-PCs that cater to a wide variety of users.  Shuttle has delivered SFF systems for business users (SB52G2) or the performance enthusiast (SB61G2).  MSI has audiophiles covered with their MEGA PC.  Each one of these systems, and many others, offer specific features that are designed to please a specific target audience.  In general, the trend has been to cram as many features...

Abit IC7-G vs. Asus P4C800 A tale of two Canterwoods By, Dave Altavilla April 29, 2003       Intel's i875P/i865P Canterwood/Springdale chipsets have all the markings of a second coming; the second coming of the "BX".  Intel's 440BX was a chipset for the Pentium 3, that reigned supreme years ago, as the premier motherboard platform to couple with a high end Intel CPU.  Back in the day, there were so many incarnations of motherboards built on the 440BX, that it even scaled beyond its targeted life span and host bus speed, with some motherboard manufacturers characterizing the chipset up to a 133MHz system bus, while it was only designed to run at...

  The VIA P4PB Ultra Motherboard Review Intent on Total System Performance for the P4 By Robert Maloney March 19th, 2003 Our first impression of the VIA P4PB Ultra, when the box showed up on the testing bench, was that it screamed (literally) that it was here to play.  From the no-nonsense black box with a guy yelling (at what we have yet to find out) to the impressive bundle within, it was clear that VIA was out to stake their own claim on the Pentium 4 Enthusiast Motherboard playing field.  Legally, it has been a mostly uphill battle for VIA, who claims that the rights to the P4's system bus architecture, were acquired when they bought out S3 Graphics.  Intel, which designs...

The Abit IT7-Max2 v2.0 vs. The Iwill P4HT-S Two Fully-Loaded i845PE's Duke it Out... By, Marco Chiappetta January 24, 2003      Over the past couple of years we have seen quite a few core logic chipsets hit the market for the Pentium 4.  We have tested motherboards based on the i850, i850e, a slew of variations of the i845, the SiS648, VIA's P4X266, 333 and 400...the list goes on and on.  Thanks to a few choice products, a good all-around feature set, including USB 2.0, Hyperthreading support and true DDR333 support, and top-notch performance one chipset in particular has won over many of the enthusiasts out there, the i845PE.  Today, we're taking two of the...

The Asus P4G8X Deluxe Motherboard Intel E7205 - Granite Bay Infused Horsepower By, Dave Altavilla December 18, 2002 The first Granite Bay (Intel E7205 chipset) motherboard to grace the HotHardware Laboratories not long ago, was MSI's GNB Max.  This board, supports Dual Channel DDR and AGP8X, as well as a host of other features, for the Pentium 4 platform.  However, this board, as well as a few others we have seen specifications for, seems to be more targeted at the High End Workstation crowd, rather than the enthusiast or "Overclockers" out there.  In fact, Intel's strategy with this new chipset for the Pentium 4, is also to target this space as well.  Intel's follow-on...

ASUS P4S8X SiS 648 Motherboard AGP 8X, Serial ATA and More! By: Chris Angelini December 16, 2002 Manufacturing chipsets for AMD's Athlon XP is one thing.  SiS, VIA and NVIDIA all vie for market share by focusing on different areas, be it price, performance or features.  Contending with Intel in the Pentium 4 chipset market is quite a different story, though.  Between the i850E, i845PE, and latest E7205 Granite Bay chipset, Intel has maintained a commanding position in the Pentium 4 chipset market.  VIA has tried, with limited success, to attract attention with its P4X266 and P4X400 chipsets, but Intel has been quick to file suit, claiming VIA doesn't possess the necessary...

The Soyo P4X400 DRAGON Ultra Platinum Edition VIA's Rogue Chipset Has Arrived! By, Marco Chiappetta October 31, 2002 Tonight on HotHardware.Com we're going to take a look at a motherboard from Soyo that is powered by VIA's controversial P4X400 DDR chipset for the Pentium 4.  If you've been on top of the hardware scene, you may know that Intel and VIA have been locked in a heated battle over the legality of VIA's P4X series of chipsets.  Intel alleges that VIA does not hold the necessary licenses to produce chipsets for the P4, while VIA claims they obtained the licenses in their acquisition of S3.  Regardless of who is "right", the ongoing litigation between these two...

The IWILL P4ES Motherboard Review Serial ATA is on the way! By, Robert Maloney October 10, 2002 The one true constant, when it comes to the world of computers, is change. Even as new items hit the market, or even during our evaluations early on here at HotHardware, newer technological breakthroughs are being developed to get more and more performance from PC system components. Technology silently progresses on whether or not the rest of the world is ready for these new ideas. More often than not, motherboards are the springboard for these new technologies, sometimes incorporating them before the supporting hardware is even released. One such technology is Serial ATA (SATA), which will eventually... Read more...
