Intel’s Xeon (Dempsey) will soon have a replacement for the 603/604 CPU socket: Socket 771. The socket will use a LGA, similar to the Socket 775 LGA sockets on desktop motherboards. AMD’s future Opteron socket, Socket 1207, is also set to use an LGA interface.
Matrox announces Extio™ F1400, the world’s first remote graphics unit. With this solution, the user interface of the computer – the keyboard, mouse, monitors, audio peripherals, and graphics hardware – are separated from the rest of the computer by up to 250 meters (820 feet) of fiber-optic cable. Designed for professional applications, this product supports

Intel expects its forthcoming Conroe and Merom chips to deliver a performance advantage of at least 20 percent over chips from AMD that are slated to be released at the same time. It has 14 pipeline stages, ability to issue 4 instructions per clock, uses advanced branch prediction technology and has 4MB unified cache. The
We received three interesting watercooling kits from some of the big names in aftermarket PC cooling and we’re going to torture them with an Intel Prescott 670 and an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ for your reading pleasure. Complete with overclocking tests!

We have got to know the specs for the upcoming 90nm G71 series already. There will be two models as we have revealed before; the GeForce 7900 GTX and GeForce 7900 GT. However, the performance differences between the two models seem to be pretty huge and we can expect quite a huge price difference too.
NVIDIA today reported financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 and the fiscal year ended January 29, 2006. Revenue for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2006 was a record $ 2.38 billion, compared to revenue of $ 2.01 billion for the fiscal year ended January 30, 2005. "Fiscal 2006 was a milestone
Intel has decided to keep the Pentium D Processor 920 on the B-1 stepping through End of Life. Intel® Pentium® D Processors 930, 940 and 950 will undergo the following changes for the B-1 to C-1 processor stepping conversion: • CPUID will change from F62 to F64 • C-1 is pin compatible with B-1 •
AMD server owners will get a nice 200MHz per core speed upgrade with the Opteron 185, 285 and 885 series CPU. The Opteron 185 is virtually identical to the Athlon FX-60 — 2.6GHz per core, 2x1MB L2 cache, 90nm SOI process. The Opteron 185 still features the Denmark (A6CD) core and remains a Socket 939

Intel Clear Video Technology will form the integrated graphics of the upcoming 965G Broadwater chipset. It features support for Pixel Shader 3.0, Vertex Shader 3.0, Hardware T&L, Full Precision FP Ops, HW accelerated De-Interlacing, MPEG-2 Hardware acceleration, HDMI, WMV9b HD Decode (VC1) and ProcAMP API.
Intel next generation Extreme Edition chip “Kentsfield” is slated for launch in early 2007. It is 65nm based and Quad core and has 4MB of L2 cache. This part is going to be more or less a dual die part very similar to Clovertown (the Enterprise version), and it will most likely share all of
Intel plans to introduce the Averill platform for business-use desktop PCs in the third quarter of 2006. Intel’s Averill lineup will include the Averill Pro and the Averill Fundamental. The Averill Pro platform includes the dual-core Conroe processor and the Q965 chipset (codenamed Broadwater), whereas the Pentium D processor and Q963 chipset will be featured
With all the new PCIe cards going all over the place, those who have not made the switch over from AGP to PCIe seem to be a neglected bunch. Rumours that AGP has been abandoned by the two leading Graphics card manufacturers NVIDIA and ATi are crushed by a new hope that brings life back
