2Gb MultiMediaCard in the works

HardwareYou always need more room for stuff. Just when you thought that 60Gb drive was enough, it just isn't. So the storage guys puts more data into smaller space, you go out and haul in the latest 160Gb drive, and everybody is happy.

Attack: Duron 1200 Takes On the Pentium 4

Hardware
Article from: Tom's Hardware Guide

"Our comprehensive benchmark analysis has shown that, in some disciplines, the new AMD Duron 1200 is even marginally faster than an Intel Pentium 4/1500. The Duron's strengths come clearly to the fore in 3D games still based on DirectX 7. Under DirectX 8, the Duron 1200 is still somewhat faster than the direct competition from Intel, the Celeron 1200, but, the low-cost CPU still can't outstrip Intel's Pentium 4. Encoding MP3s is another story, however - the Duron 1200 tops the Pentium 4/1400."

Itanium flunking Compaq server tests

  View Printable Version 
HardwareIntel's Itanium processor is failing to pass Compaq Computer's stress tests, according to a Compaq representative, thus holding up the release of Compaq's Itanium servers.

A Compaq representative said that the company has experienced "sightings" with Itanium, Intel's 64-bit processor for servers, in Compaq's internal testing of its ProLiant DL590/64. The representative would not go so far as to call the issue a flaw, but said the problem appeared to be caused by the processor. The problem crops up with servers running both the 733MHz and 800MHz version of the chip.

The AMD Athlon XP 1900+

  View Printable Version 
HardwareAMD let out it's newest CPU offering in October, the Athlon XP 1900+. It ticks at 1600Mhz, but as we all know by now, this does not necessarily mean anything in particular when it comes to processing speed. In fact, in a test done by Tom's Hardware, it let the Intel Pentium 4 @ 2000MHz behind in the dust. All the details on both the Pentium 4 / AMD Athlon benchmarks and a torough discussion on this new AMD CPU is here.

MicroDrive MP3 Player You Talk To

  View Printable Version 
HardwareThe e.Digital MXP 100 comes with a choice of 340MB, 512MB, and 1GB MicroDrives and is about 25% larger than a Rio 500 flash portable. That makes it small enough to conveniently fit in a pocket, something you can't do with a jukebox player like Creative's Nomad Jukebox. The Nomad is three times larger than the MXP 100 and quite a bit heavier.

Will that be sleeve or ball bearings?

  View Printable Version 
HardwareIs your box noisy? If so, the culprit is probably one of the fans inside. If you ever wondered if ball bearing fans make less noise than sleeve bearing ones, you can read this article at Comair Rotron's web site. These people make a living out of providing fans to the electronics industry, so you can rest assured they know NPEL from CFM from dB.

If you wonder what a ball bearing is, you probably shouldn't spend time wondering why it's noisy.
