QuotePaul Otellini, Intel's president and COO, in a keynote address demonstrated a 4.7-GHz version of its Pentium 4 processor line. In addition, Otellini demonstrated a Pentium 4 processor operating at 3-GHz, saying it would be available this year with Hyper-Threading (HT) technology.
QuoteThe Canadian company said it now expects revenue for the quarter ended Aug. 31 to be between US$235 million to US$240 million, with earnings anywhere from breakeven and 2 cents per share.

QuoteSince we can only evaluate the performance scale of P4 CPUs of the next ten months, there is no direct comparison with the Athlon Hammer at present. THG's view is that the introduction of a potent, if not overpowering, "hammer" is more than desirable. It will bring a breath of fresh air into the market, and the ambitious user will profit from the 64-bit option in the bargain. Intel needs more pressure once again! But first, the hurdles that lie ahead in the coming months will have to be cleared, yet again. For all that, the 3.6 GHz P4 has set the bar pretty high. But it's early yet, and Intel's 2.8 GHz P4 is on the market.
QuoteHP scientists believe the use these circuits built with nanotechnology, in concert with current chipmaking technology, will extend the boundaries of conventional semiconductors and result in higher performance processors or memory chips with more capacity.
QuoteDouble-gate transistors like the Fin-Fet have emerged as one of the technologies that could help engineers ward off technical limitations over the course of the next decade and make faster, more powerful chips.
QuoteAfter witnessing some of the violations of said etiquette over the past couple of years I thought I'd take a moment to document the Top 10 LAN party Etiquette Faux Paus:
QuoteBoth of Monday's demonstrations highlight one feature of the Madison chips: They are "pin-compatible" with their Itanium 2 predecessors, meaning that a computer can easily be upgraded with faster chips. It also means that Itanium server designers such as Unisys, HEC, Hitachi, Hewlett-Packard, SGI and IBM don't have to start their server designs from scratch when each new processor arrives.
QuoteMolecular grids are the central concept in HP's nanotechnology plans. In HP's vision, layers of molecular strands, laid down in a crisscross fashion like city streets, will form a mesh of tiny, intelligent circuits. This molecular mesh could be sandwiched between layers of ordinary chip wires to act as a communications network or, eventually, used as the foundation for a complete microprocessor.

QuoteSCSI is a widely used standard for connecting hard drives to computers; iSCSI lets that happen over a network connection such as a company Ethernet network or even the Internet. iSCSI holds the promise of letting multiple computers tap into a pool of storage systems.
QuoteJust in case there are still a few of you out there questioning the validity of the rumors and stories surrounding the next AthlonXPs being born of a 333MHz FSB, this authentic picture of a 2700+ should put the rumors to rest.
QuoteWindows Media 9, formerly code-named Corona, has been in development for nearly four years and improves on earlier versions of Microsoft's digital player and server technology on a number of fronts. For businesses, the technology includes improved media management features, for example. For consumer media playing, the system is updated for speed and seamless playback to create a more TV-like experience on the PC.
QuoteCarbon nanotubes, meanwhile, rewrite the basic structure of chips. With these, chipmakers would make circuits out of strings of carbon atoms rather than out of metallic wires. These carbon circuits would pave the way for smaller, faster and cheaper chips.
QuoteSupporting a 333MHz FSB (front-side bus) and 512K cache memory, the 0.13-micron Barton-based Athlon XP offers specifications comparable to those of Intel’s new Pentium 4, AMD said. At present, the processor maker plans to launch two Barton-based products in the fourth quarter.
QuoteDuring the first seven months of this year, pop-up and pop-under ads amounted to just 2 percent of all online advertising impressions, according to a study released Wednesday by Nielsen/NetRatings. However, more than 9 percent of all companies that advertise online are now using such ads, including household names such as Dell Computer, Morgan Stanley and Providian Financial.
Online advertisers served 11.3 billion pop-up and pop-under ad impressions in the first seven months of 2002, according to Nielsen/NetRatings. About 58 percent of those impressions were used to drive traffic to a particular Web site, while 26 percent were aimed at boosting sales through use of incentives. Just 13 percent of pop-up and pop-under advertisements were used to build brand awareness.
QuoteIntel lowered the 2.4GHz processor price by 52 percent, from $400 to $193. It dropped the price of its 2.2GHz and 2.26GHz Pentium 4 chips by 20 percent, from $241 to $193 each. Meanwhile, the 2GHz Pentium 4 dropped 16 percent from $193 to $163, and the 1.8GHz went from $163 to $143.
QuoteAnd it gives details of the 2700+, which uses a Thoroughbred core using the 333MHz FSB and a 256K cache.
While the Barton cores, at 2800+ and 3000+, will also use the 333MHz FSB and have 512K of level two cache.
QuoteThe government openly attempts to control Web content in China, where the Internet threatens Communist Party control over the media. It blocks several foreign news sites and frequently forces domestic sites to expunge content deemed unwholesome.
Google was being blocked because searches could bring up links to pornography, content associated with the banned spiritual movement Falun Gong and information deemed harmful to national security, according to an article posted on Web portal NetEase.com.
