HWRoundup Peek at the P4

Plus a 800MHz Duron v 766MHz Celeron showdown

Dan of Dansdata has got some benchmarks for the P4. Dan said, [rather smugly we think but we are also forgiving, so that's OK] that he decided it would be easier to sit and wait for Intel to send him one than it would be to traipse over to Comdex. Handily ignoring any warnings not to open various boxes, he managed to get a few tests done. Go here for the results.

Update Well, there were P4 benchmarks here, but it seems the story got pulled. Looks like the Aussies have some respect for embargoes after all. Cheeky bunch.



Don't ever tell any of this lot a secret. The Overclockers site in Australia has posted a picture of the Titan Majesty Twin Cooler. A review is on the way, but they just couldn't resist. Click

if you can't wait either.




Wondering what Comdex is doing to CPU prices? Well, so did Tech-Review and they decided to share their findings with everyone else, as is their weekly habit. Its Tech Review's weekly CPU price roundup, is what I'm saying.

Pop quiz hotshot.You have an 800MHZ Duron and the new 766MHz Celeron. What do you do? What do you do? Oh, c'mon, it should be fairly obvious...you put them head to head and see who survives. At least you do if you write for Tom's Hardware. Check out the results of the battle

OCTools has chronicled a solitary adventure in overclocking on a budget. Called "One Mans Saga" this is the first in the series, and it is expected to go downhill from here. In a good way. So. Click on this

More hardware? Good grief, you lot are insatiable. Well, you can dig it up for yourselves in our archives.
