Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

The long-awaited (cough) 933MHz Pentium III Copperwhine chip has gone on sale in Japan's high-tech area, Akibara. If you go to this place, you'll discover more information, along with details of Colour PCI Athlons, and a Dog and Cat style PC. The exchange rate is around $1=109.

Thanks to L&H Japanese-English machine translation software, we can offer a part translation of this particular Pentium III page. Eleven stores are offering it around 110,000. And it appears to run at 1.7 volts with a 133MHz front side bus. From the pictures, we can see this is a SECC2 (Slot One) bus. But another little picture mentions that rare bird, the 1000MHz Pentium III, arriving in Akibara wearing FC-PGA colours.

Anandtech is bearding the lion in its den and has posted a piece about the infamous Monty Python's Flying Rambussss... The article, which you can find here, says there's a lot of misinformation about Rambus. Who are we to quibble? We quite agree. It's certainly good enough for top end Alpha systems. The piece has sparked a healthy debate - details of which you can also find on that page. Anand says people seem to have a lot of hatred about Rambus. Certainly, there have been an awful lot of Flames of the Week from Rambus fans directed towards us... but that's the wrong direction, isn't it?

Ars Technica has a piece about 360 degree screaming (that's streaming, dolt) video, which gives you an "immersive" movie experience. We wouldn't want to be immersed in more than three radians of films we've seen, that's for sure.

There's a big review of professional Open GL cards over at Tom's Hardware Guide. ®
