Hey folks... anyone else living in hot weather right now? After months of horrible weather and teeth chattering cold, this 80'F heat is a bit much. Anyway, today in the news we have word that Ameritrade has warned some 200,000 clients that a data tape has either been lost or accidently destroyed. If you happen to be one of those customers, check out the news below and drown your sorrows with a good review ;) GIGABYTE GeForce 6600 TurboForce Ultra Edition @ Techniz "The performance of this GigaByte GeForce 6600 128MB PCI-Express graphic card is out perform the ATI 9800 series even the ATI X700 Pro and it was very close to the GeForce 6600GT performance.

  Today, we're bringing you a Dual-Core Pentium quick take, on short notice from the folks at Intel. With only a few hours of testing at our disposal, we're attempting to make time with some level of meaningful analysis for you and hit Intel's NDA embargo lift time this morning. Would we have liked to spend more quality lab time on such an important launch event as the first dual core Pentium class CPU to ever hit the mainstream? You bet your CMOS digital flip-flop we would, but when hardware is shipped to the wild without a solid game plan behind it, in our gig you react or get walked on. So we did and here's what we've come up with. Read on for our first glance report of Intel's new Dual-Core... Read more...
Hey there everyone.  We've got ourselves a relatively quiet morning with just a few items to serve up.  First, there is the Pentium 4 3.73GHz Extreme Edition followed by some 6600GT and 6800 SLI lovin'.  Lastly, there's a look at the Thermaltake Armor VA8000 Case.  For me, it's time to get the weekend started a little early.  I'll catch you back here next week. Intel Pentium 4 3.73GHz Extreme Edition @ Viperlair: "As we've seen in our results, the gap between AMD and Intel in terms of application performance is a lot closer than it used to be, at least when we're talking about $1000 processors. The 3.73GHz Extreme Edition did edge the Athlon FX-55 in most of the... Read more...
  Good morning folks.  We sleepily bring you our Pentium 4 6XX Sequence and 3.73GHz Extreme Edition Processor showcase today, as the NDA embargo lifts at 3AM EST / 12AM PST.  With EM64T extensions for 64-bit computing, 2MB of L2 cache, Execute Disable Bit for virus - buffer overflow protection and advanced SpeedStep power saving technology, we certainly have plenty to cover, so you better fire up a bit more Joe if you're up and around at this wee hour.  Enjoy and good-night!  ...

  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...

  In this our first article of 2005, we're going to take a look back at recent history and examine a driving force in computing technology that was dominant throughout much of 2004.  Intel launched its mobile Centrino technology in mid-2003.  It took a while to ramp up but once this new platform initiative gathered steam, it took off like a rocket for what has been a hugely successful marketing and technology development effort.  The centerpiece of this new architecture was Intel's new Pentium M processor core, then code named "Banias", which has since been enhanced and updated in .09 micron process technology, now known as the "Dothan" Pentium M core....

  The folks out in Sunnyvale have been releasing new additions to their Athlon 64 processor lineup with the kind of fevered pace we've come to expect from major-league semiconductor manufacturers.  So too has the ever-dominant Intel.  With 78,000 employees worldwide and almost 10 times the revenue of its nearest competitor at $30 billion annually, its this kind of critical mass that allows a company to pour endless resources into a program and drive higher reaching product line goals. Earlier this month, we brought you a view of AMD's new Athlon FX-55 and Athlon 64 4000+ processors and their relative performance versus Intel's flagship CPUs.  Today we've got Intel's latest...

Major product launches don't seem to be getting any easier these days, at least on our side of the fence here in the online media community.  Competition is fiercer than ever in all of the major functional blocks for personal computing, whether it's Graphics, Platform Chipsets, Drive technology or Processors.  It almost seems like major OEMs are driving too hard in an effort to trump the competition.  On the other hand, high tech, as we all know, is a very unforgiving battleground.  And so, it is with cramped weary fingers and bloodshot tired eyes, that we bring you this showcase of Intel's major platform launch centered around their new Alderwood and Grantsdale chipsets. ...
