Intelligent flash storage arrays

Take a peek at VR-Zone where it says that PC-150 SDRAM using Tiny BGA DRAM Modules is coming RSN. The new PC-150 SDRAM uses the standard 168-pin DIMM and can support 150MHz FSB. This should be great news for overclockers who plan to get their systems running faster than 150MHz FSB which PC-133 SDRAM can't achieve. PC-150 SDRAM should be able to run at over 170MHz.

And over at Tech-Review there's an updated list of CPU prices. The Intel Pentium III 933 MHz debuts on the chart at a meaty $1260, while the Athlon 800 drops below $300 for the first time. Guesstimate pricing for Durons put the 600MHz part at $89, the 650 at $115 and the 700 at $159 – cheaper than equivalent Celerons.

If you want a mobo for your new Duron when it appears next month, check out our chums at Overclockers, where the obvious question, 'can I overclock it?' is addressed. More significantly, it appears that most manufacturers' Duron KZ133 mobos won't be around until a couple of months after the chip itself appears.

And finally at ArsTechnica, check out the review of the Asus K7VA mobo, described as "could be the best KX133 motherboard we've ever seen."
