Intel has introduced a new technique of shaping transistors on die to reduce leakage current even on smaller upcoming processes.
D0 Stepping will be introduced to both Pentium D and Celeron. As 65nm process is now in mature, the specification is upgraded from FMB 05A to FMB06, with 65W TDP as a maximum. Since most of the Intel based main board follows the FMB 05B specification, there is no necessary change to the design.
AMD decided to drop their prices on 24th July, the day after Intel’s price-cut on Netburst CPUs. Intel would announce their new architecture dual core processor “Conroe” on 23rd July. On the same day, the old Netburst based Pentium D CPUs will drop price by 40% to 60%. Manufacturers are deeply concerned about the ratio
Pentium D will gain 95W TDP from September this year. Besides the lower TDP, some defects will be rectified. Intel Pentium D 960, 950, 945, 925 and 915 will be released in D0 Stepping. Pentium D 940, 930 and 920 are excluded from these improvements.

My friend Kinc from Sweden and his team-mates broke some 3D Mark records overclocking and benchmarking live at DreamHack LAN Party! they used a load of Liquid Nitrogen and Cascade Coolers. Huge Congrqats to them for scoring 74553 in 3D mark 01, 23945 in 05 and 13521 in 06, with ATi X1900XT CrossFire setup at
I’ve had quite a few people asking me to see more of the Inno3D Dry Ice Automater and 7950GX2 Quad SLI water-cooling system we displayed at Innovision booth during Computex 2006. Here are the details of it!
Check out some pictures of our extreme cooled and voltage modified Quad SLI! We are facing some problems with trying to get Quad SLI drivers installed properly at the moment. More pictures and details here.
DDR2 Memory has gone full blast rcently as AMD moves to AM2 and Intel’s upcoming Conroe CPU picking up a huge amount of attention. We compare 3 pairs of High-speed DDR2 Memory to find the creme of the crop!
MCP Computer Pte Ltd is pleased to announce that the Warranty policy has been revised. As of June 1st 2006, all models of Geforce cards in the PCI-Express variant will have their warranty period extended to 24 months, up from the previous state of 12 months. This extension of warranty period applies to ALL INNO3D
The ASUS M2N32 SLI AM2 Motherboard supports up to 1.6v CPU core voltage and 2.5v Memory voltage. For those who crave for more, here are some simple pencil voltage modifications you can do. Take Note that warranty is void when you modify the voltages!
