Microsoft previewed a new feature in Windows that can significantly increase the speed applications are loaded and extend the virtual memory of a computer system by accessing secondary and peripheral storage devices such as USB Flash memory sticks. Microsoft calls this feature “SuperFetch.” Library system codes of most used applications are pre-loaded during the normal
We heard that GeForce 7800GTX will compete nicely against the Radeon X1800 XT therefore we can expect their performance should be pretty close. There isn’t a need for NVIDIA to bring out their Ultra version as we learned. In comparison, the 7800GTX has 24 pipelines while X1800 XT has 16 pipelines and the former is
As we know, C51G core contains GeForce 6 graphics and it is based on 90nm micron process technology from TSMC. In comparison with ATi RS482 using 0.11 micron, C51G is more advanced and performance is estimated to be 5-10% higher. C51G has improved Video Playback capability.
NVIDIA plans to introduce GeForce 7800 Standard using the G70 core which makes it the third line-up for the 7800 series. It will have 16 pixel pipelines and 6 vertex shader. The core clock is at 375MHz and the memory is at 1Ghz. GeForce 7800 will be replacing GeForce 6800GT and Ultra but NVIDIA is
Instead of a bare PCB of the 7800 Dual card posted a day back, this is how the actual card with all the components soldered on will look like. The core used is 7800GT not the GTX as reported earlier and the memory is 1.6ns Samsung GDDR3 totaling 512MB.
NVIDIA is planning two versions of the 6800XT card. One will be PCIe while the second one will use good old AGP. The first version of the card will be based on NV41 PCIe while AGP version will use NV40 chip. Both cards will have eight pipelines and are being shipped in Taiwan. NVIDIA plans
Today, we will be looking at one of their latest entry level server board; ASUS P5MT based on Mukilteo chipset supporting the Intel Dual Core processors suitable for rackmount and pedestal systems. It can double up as a workstation or high-end desktop board for enthusiasts and gamers as well with a presence of a PCIe
Intel’s average manufacturing cost per die will remain constant at approximately $ 40 during the period 2003 to 2005, despite increasing die sizes and rising cost of fabs, mask sets, according to In-Stat. Intel currently has three 90-nm capable fabs, and will have four 65-nm fabs, including one retro fit and one 90-nm conversion, ramping
Chaintech announced it has no plans to abandon the motherboard market. The comments are in response to published news stories, which incorrectly reported that the company would phase out its motherboard business. In addition, Chaintech announced that Walton Advanced Engineering, Inc. has acquired a 25-percent stake in Chaintech and the company will be renamed Walton
Desktop Intel® Celeron® processors in FC-LGA4 (socket-LGA775) package on 90 nm process will undergo the following changes to the G-1 core processor stepping: • The CPU ID will change from 0XF41 to 0XF49 (Updated Bios required) • No impact anticipated to existing platforms 845, 865 and 852 & 9xx family • New S-Specs for affected
ASUS has previously came out with their 6800Ultra-DUAL and 6800GT-DUAL cards but sadly they never really make it into the market. Nevertheless, ASUS has again kicked off development on the 7800GTX-DUAL card this time round as evident from the PCB layout above though no components are being soldered on yet. It will be interesting to
We were fortunate enough to be able to lay our hands on the new Portable Media Player, Creative Zen Vision made by world reknown sound card manufacturer Creative Technology. Catacombs shares his “Zen” experience with us!
