More Celerons for you today. We missed one fromAnandtech last time, so we'll put it right today. His scores show the Duron consistently ahead, even performing well enough to be considered with the higher end of the market. The Celeron on the other hand, fits in snugly in at the low end. Put rather starkly: "If you care about performance at all you'll want to stay away from the Celeron 700." You tell 'em Anand!

Still with the CPU's, on the front page of System Logic is a report about some Thunderbirds. It seems they found a box of T'bird 750's with a 900 core. The piece also mulls over some motherboard compatibility issues.

Meanwhile, at OC Workbench they've posted the benchmarks of the 1Ghz Pentium 3 vs 1Ghz Athlon on different chipsets. Short and sweet.

Copper has better thermal conductivity than aluminium. Not news, we know, but check out Frosty's step by step recipe for making your own solid-copper pin-type heatsink for PGA or FC-PGA based processors. The article is complete with photos of the production process - these guys are so dedicated its scary.

All you speed demons out there will like the Plextor Ultra Wide SCSI drive according to the Duke of URL. It scores big on support, OS compatibility and performance but its price tag ($100-$120) may put it beyond the casual users reach. No category scored lower than eight and a half out of ten.

And to finish you off, check out a quick point by point on The Meter's benchmark list for graphics processors. Only one result is published per chip, and none of them were tested on overclocked boards.

Happy Hardware. ®
