QuoteThe Evo D315 is expected to sell for $650, before rebates. It will include an Athlon XP 2000+ processor, 128MB of RAM, a 20GB hard drive, a CD-ROM and no monitor. The machine also uses Nvidia's nForce chipset. HP initially plans to offer a $100 rebate on the D315.
QuoteThe replaceable fuel cartridges initially will last two to three times longer than batteries but eventually last 10 times longer. Notebooks containing fuel cells will begin to arrive in late 2004 to 2005, he said. Another fuel cell company, MTI MicroFuel Cells, gives the same projection.
QuoteThe VIA Apollo KT400 takes the AMD Athlon™ XP processor to the summit of system performance with enhanced support for a DDR333 SDRAM, ultra fast AGP 8X graphics, ATA-133, USB 2.0 and an 8X V-Link chip interconnect
QuoteMeanwhile, AMD has other things in the works. The chipmaker is considering boosting the speed of Athlon XP's 266MHz front-side bus to faster 333MHz. The move would give the chip a performance boost by better matching the chip's bus frequency with its higher clock speed. The chip would also be able to take better advantage of higher bandwidth DDR333 (333MHz Double Data Rate SDRAM) memory. ...
AMD could pair the faster bus with a new version of the Athlon XP chip, code-named Barton, which is expected later in the year. The combination would allow AMD to produce new chips that are at least a couple of model numbers higher than the current ones, analysts said. (Barton has a larger, 512KB level 2 cache, allowing the chip to store more data on board and therefore increasing its performance.).
QuoteLong considered the quietest PSU on the market, Q-Technology has discontinued their original legendary 230W and now offers bigger models better suited for today's power hungry systems. http://www.silentpcreview.com examines the new 300W Q-Technology QT-02300. Does it continue the Q-Technology tradition? How does it compare with quiet PSUs from new competitors such as Zalman and Seasonic? Find out the whole story in SPCR's comprehensive review
QuoteWhen asked why the feature isn't offered in Netscape 7.0, Mozilla spokesman Derrick Meins said that it's like "comparing apples to oranges."
"Netscape is a very different product, designed for a mass market consumer audience," Meins said. "Mozilla is for developers--different products, target audiences and needs."
In addition, Mozilla does not combine all the features of Netscape 7.0 such as AOL Instant Messenger and Radio@Netscape, a new service on the Netscape toolbar that lets people play music from specialized radio stations.
QuoteIn total, IBM will eliminate 15,613 jobs, the representative said. About 1,400 jobs will be eliminated in the microelectronics group. The division has completed about 3 percent of those cuts, with the remainder to occur by the end of August.
QuoteWith the n-Series, Dell will include a copy of a free operating system--FreeDOS--inside the cardboard box. However, the OS will not be pre-installed, so customers will not have to worry about reconfiguring their machines should they want to use a different product.
QuoteThe Fed, in issuing its vote, said the economic weakness that emerged this spring has been prolonged. This is largely due to continuing lackluster markets and heightened fears that more financial shenanigans will emerge as chief executives and chief financial officers have to sign off on the accuracy of their earnings reports, it said.
QuoteAdvanced transistors: Intel’s new 90 nm process will feature transistors measuring only 50 nm in length (gate length), which will be the smallest, highest performing CMOS transistors in production. By comparison, the most advanced transistors in production today, found in Intel Pentium® 4 processors, measure 60 nm. Small, fast transistors are the building blocks for very fast processors. These transistors feature gate oxides that are only five atomic layers thick (1.2 nm). A thin gate oxide increases transistor speed.
