Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

At this site, there is a report that AMD has decided to scrap the K6-2+, and some more information on Chimpzilla's chippy plans for this year. There's a review at Anandtech of Creatve Labs Annihilator Pro. Our pals at BX Boards have posted a review of the Epox EP-7KXA motherboard, which uses the Via KX133 chipset. Ars Technica, over at its Wankerdesk, has posted a piece about Intel being on the road to erewhon. Don't think after reading this that Michael Dull of the Dull Corporation is going to leave Intel off his list of enemas -- we understand that Fortune magazine will soon deliver an interview with the man where he lays into Chipzilla (overheard at a bar in Palm Springs last week). Tempted to dabble with them-thar Slockets (we understand Intel may well make one too)? Go, then, to Hardware One and consider the ways of this wicked world of ours. There's a contrast and compare piece there... Sick of all that silicon? Get thee hence to Hardware, where there's an attractively priced sandblaster.. ® 22 February 2000 The IT Network awards a big pat on the back for the Athlon 850MHz, primarily for its better floating point performance, compared with its 800MHz little brother. The new processor is "ideal for high-end desktops and single processor workstations - and is also cheaper than the fastest Pentium III currently available". The full Athlon 950MHz review is at http://www.itnetwork.com/article4301. There's a review of the extremely sexy Yamaha CRW8424 IDE CD-RW at Hardware One which is well worth a gander. Do names make a difference to bits of hardware? Yamaha don't think so... At Tech Report, there is a review of six of the best Athlon overclocking cards on the market. Wacko! as Jimmy Edwards no doubt said... Athlon heatsinks? Who needs'em when the beast runs so cool? Here, at Anandtech, there's a review of ten sinks. At IDF last week we saw some v.interesting designs for some Pentium III heatsinks...and maybe even for Willamette. Overclocker Kyle Bennett at Hard OCP has neatly summarised a stash of announcements from Abit. Boris Babaian of Elbrus has more stuff to say, according to this piece here. And at Hardware Com there's a cordless circular saw, which no doubt will prove useful if you need to chop the head off of these skyscraper style chips Intel was talking about last week....oops, wrong kind of hardware. ® 20 February 2000 Back from Intel's Developer Forum and now able to update this page a little more regularly... JC has posted some info suggesting that AMD will yawn when Intel releases its 866MHz Pentium III on 27/28 February. It probably can afford to wait a while, we and he reckon, before it unleashes its infamous 900MHz Athlon... Sharky Extreme has some benchmarks on a GeForce which uses DDR (double data rate) memory here. DDR is the technology which senior Intel executive Albert Yu claims he has never heard of. At Overclockin there is a review of seven memory modules which takes an exhaustive look at performance, for those of you who want to get that extra spurt out of your PC platform. This is part II of a series testing memory which is well worth a look. There's an in-depth look at the Asus K7 board here at CPU Review. ®
