Last week Planet Hardware brought us the trouncing of the Celeron 700 by AMD's Duron. To follow that, they have lined the Duron up against the Pentium III 700. Billed as a David vs Goliath affair, this match should be interesting, even if it doesn't follow the plot lines sketched out in the Bible.

Natural 3D Tech's site is now live under its own domain name, and they asked us to let you know where they were. Go here to check out the front page.

To start the ball rolling, they have posted a review on the 3dfx Voodoo5 5500 and the Elsa Erazor X2 GeForce 256 DDR. The X2 was tested under Windows 2000 and Windows ME using the DirectX 8 drivers for both platforms and the Nvidia 532 drivers for both platforms.

And while we are on the subject, Anand has completed his 23-page review of the Voodoo5 5500. This man is nothing if he is not thorough. Go here to see what he had to say about it.

The Insane Hardware crew has launched an appeal for help. It turns out that they are having trouble sorting out a Duron. Go here and see if you think you'd be able to solve the conundrum. ®
