HWRoundup Britney Spears spices up semiconductors
It's not all reports from IDF you know...
Today we decided that the Intel Developers Forum was being covered more than adequately just about everywhere, so we wanted to shine the light on other goings on in the hardware community - if only to reassure ourselves and you that other things are still going on.
For example Sharky is running an Intel Developer Forum "special" this week, but they still found time to produce their weekly CPU price round up, along with all the usual disclaimers. And no, just because it's an IDF "special" doesn't mean everything is cheaper. Click here.
Of course you might not feel like retail therapy, in which case you should know they've also published an article about the Voodoo5 5500. Gohere
Hardware Unlimited reports on the Hercules 3D Prophet DDR-DVI instead. They reckon that this one stands out a bit from the competition, so clickhere
for their thoughts on why.
But how long can we go on just looking at gaming cards? Not long, as evidenced by the rapid topic switch to Planet Hardware's guide to installing a motherboard. If you have experienced a shudder of fear at the prospect of upgrading your own machine, clickhere
for information and a bit of reassurance.
And we couldn't let the day go by without mentioning the Asus A7V could we? No, we couldn't. PC Roddin (we think they lost the 'g' somewhere) has posted its take on the board. What did they think? Clickthrough
to find out.
And lastly today is something we've been meaning to point you all to. If you wondered about the basics of semiconductor physics but thought it a bit dry, then maybethis
will help. Can anybody say "Britney Spears"? I've already sent the link to my Solid State lecturer from University.®
