Solano Mobo, more Macs, BX overview

Sites pick up speed

Wouldn't you just know it? You wait ages for a decent Mac site to come along and then two arrive together. Joining MacSlash which we mentioned here yesterday, comes MacTechUK, an Apple site aimed at UK Macintosh users. If you are tired of Apple concentrating on the USA or generalising the UK as "Europe" then this is site is worth a peek.

Our chums over at AnandTech have a pretty neat overview of Intel's venerable BX chipset and show you how to run a selection of BX mobos at 133MHz FSB – who need Rambus?

And staying with mobos, BXBoards have what is almost certainly the worlds first review of a motherboard based on Intel's "Solano" i815 chipset, the Abit SE6. Solano supports DIMMs rather than RAMBUS, while still retaining the AGP 4x of Camino. Is this the chipset BX owners have been waiting for?

We should have known better when we said this was the first i815 review - reader Jean-Christophe Dreyfus points us to an English language review on the excellent French site ActuMicro which appeared on 29 May.

Meanwhile, at ArsTechnica, you should check out the review of the new 15,000 RPM Seagate Cheetah X15 hard disk – it's certainly fast.

And Aces Hardware discovers what's happened to all those AMD K6-2 and 3 mobiles – they've all apparently gone into notebooks aimed at the Japanese market. ®
