Everything is lovely in hardware land

Two grade 'A' reviews to have a peek at on 3dHardware. The site has nothing much bad to say about either the 700MHz thunderbird Slot A or the the Athlon 850.

While we're looking at the CPU arena, Gamebasement has a review of the Celeron 2. Apparently those bad sports at Intel didn't like everyone getting the same performance from the original Celeron as the P2-450 for one quarter of the price. Killjoys! The processor gets a tentative thumbs up, mostly for being so cheap, but can't do the same massive overclock as its predecessor.

The good Dr Tom is happy to recommend a VIA-based motherboard to anyone wondering where to spend their hard-earned readies, so no more raised eyebrows over reliability please. The best of the bunch? The Asus P3V4X, Soltek SL-67KV, TMC TI6VG4, Gigabyte GA-6VX7-4X, and QDI Advance 10 all get metaphorical pats on the backs for doing so well.

For those who like this sort of thing, HardOCP previews the KYRO reference card. Fast and Inexpensive the man says. Sorry, but we had to mention at least one video card...

Ace's Hardware has a link that might get you going if asynchronous logic is your thang. Check out AMULET, a project started in 1994 at Manchester University, and cited as the first asynchronous logic implementation of a commercial microprocessor architecture (ARM).®
