New hybrid storage solutions

Over at JC's, there is some very interesting information about copper technology -- both AMD's and on the Alpha. JC quotes a Taiwanese press report as confirming IBM is fabbing copper Alphas -- we reported this much earlier this year. It also adds that IBM has displaced Samsung as a supplier of Alphas. This is unlikely to be true -- our information is that it is a second-source deal. AMD has succeeded in producing copper K6-2s at Dresden now, the piece adds. We like Kyle Bennett because he's a bit, OK a megabit, of an iconoclast and this piece is right up our street. Electromigration has become the buzz word of the day, and this is a letter from an Intel employee about overclocking. The Intel bod was replying to Kyle's amusing "We don't care what you do with chips in the privacy of your own home" style. Over at Sharky Extreme, there is a review of a Wintec notebook which seems to be as close to a mobile PC games machine as you can get. The boys over at AMD Zone report that Asus is readying an Athlon mobo. The site also mentions that Falcon is to introduce a range of Athlon PCs soon. AMD Zone is based on Austin, and listen to the radio adverts. AMD is advertising for CPU, chipset and mobo engineers. Have they lost some, then? That's what we reported last week... ®
