  • Dual P3 800 Faster than the P4 or Athlon

    Published: Sunday, November 26, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Originally I saw this at HardOCP and figured that under the circumstances I should post it here. As most of us know any computer with multiple processors will score higher than a computer with just one processor if given the proper environment to work in. (i.e. Win2k, Linux) Even then you still need to be running programs that support the SMP instruction set.

    I've always like a good first-person shooter game and from what GameSpy says this one will bring back some memories.

  • Ninjalane starts hardware reviews

    Published: Wednesday, November 22, 2000 | By: Dennis

    The nice guys at the Freeway Designs home office in Taipei. Where nice enough to send me a sample of one of their latest products the FWD-P3C4XD for review.

    This board features dual socket 370 processors, AGP Pro, onboard sound, and a sexy red PCB. That is to not mention a variety of core voltages and FSB to 166 MHz.
    I see quite a potential with this board.

  • AGP 8X

    Due in 2003 with a Bandwidth of 2gb/sec... I am all aquiver. Hopefully, by that time they will have figured out a way to turn your old computer into a Free Standing Video Card. "Yeah, I got a Dual P4 3ghz machine with 1024 mbs of RAM running Linux Geforce4 emulator for my new computer."

  • More P4 carnage

    This time its the cool guys at Penny Arcade. Not sure what their stand is on the new chip but if there is a cartoon about it, it has to be good.

  • The buzz about the P4

    Published: Monday, November 20, 2000 | By: Dennis

    The infamous non-NS6 compatible website [H]ardocp got their hands on a P4 fitted with the works. Other sites out there have also posted P4 goodness. They are..

    Toms Hardware (with a crappy logo on the front page.
    Dan's Data

    I'm sure more will surface in the near future but this should wet the whistle for the time being.

  • Game tweak guide

    Published: Friday, November 17, 2000 | By: Dennis

    NT Compatible posted a game tweak guide for Windows NT/2K on their site. Some of the things that they talk about are pretty simple solutions to increase performance but some of the others I didn't even know about. Take a look.

  • Tyan Tiger 230

    Published: Wednesday, November 15, 2000 | By: Dennis

    It would seem that Tyan has been busy. In checking out their site today I found this link. Another dual processor board from Tyan and this one looks alot like the rest. A couple of key points.

    Onboard Audio
    ATA 100 support

    The design seems to follow what I call the "reference" design. So far all of the dual socket 370 boards have the same layout, brings back memories of the GeForce 256 of days gone by.

  • Quake 3 on ABC News

    Published: Wednesday, November 15, 2000 | By: Dennis

    Never thought I would see it but ABC news as conservative as they are have posted a article about the new Quake 3 for the Dreamcast. Personally I'm not much for console gaming but heck with a title like Quake 3 and the ability to frag on the net from a 52 inch big screen. I might just go and buy it.
