  • Tyan Tiger 200

    Published: Sunday, November 12, 2000 | By: Dennis

    I am really quite fond of Tyan products every motherboard that I have personally owned has been a Tyan. I was looking at the product matrix tonight and noticed a new dual based on the Via 133A chipset will be hitting the market sometime soon.
    From the small picture on their site the layout seems very promising. The sockets are inline with each other (not like the VIA reference design) and is without an ISA slot. So far I have only seen one other motherboard similar to this, and is produced by a small company in Taiwan called Freeway Designs. From what I can tell the only difference is that the Tyan board is a nice rich green whereas the Freeway Designs board is a sexy red.

    We can only hope that the Tiger 200 is nothing like the Tiger 133.

  • More Duals are here

    Published: Thursday, November 09, 2000 | By: Dennis

    I was browsing over at 2cpu today and found that they have indeed gotten a hold of the new dual board from epox

    In the coming months there will be quite a few reviews of the dual processor boards that use the VIA chipset.
    Believe it or not but there will be a review here at as well.

    Here are some specs of the new system I am putting together. Dual P3 800Mhz (cC0 core), GeForce2 Ultra (to be named), Inno3D MX card (for dual monitor support), 2 Maxtor ATA100 15gig drives on a RAID0 Stripe (unfortunately the dual board I am getting does not have onboard ATA100 or RAID so the controller card has yet to be named). The system should scream. More later when it becomes available.

  • Quake Servers

    Published: Tuesday, October 17, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Sorry to say but the Quake servers have been taken down for awhile. I can't say when they will be back up. One server had hardware problems and will be moving sometime in the near future. The other server ( got a nice upload cap placed on it, needless to say ping times are really bad.

    Sorry for the bad news.

  • Server downtime

    Published: Monday, October 09, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Well we have been experiencing some downtime lately and maybe some in the near future. Seems as though the server has been having problems. Though once that is worked out things should be back to normal. I can't complain though, I get my hosting for free.
