  Shuttle's AE25R Motherboard Twice The Fun By, Jeff Bouton September 25th, 2001   It seems like it was just yesterday when I was running a state of the art 486 processor at 33MHz. and a whopping 16MB of RAM.  A hot new game called Doom had everyone talking and I had just installed a brand new 2X CD-ROM drive in my rig.  Since then (thankfully), the industry has seen a steady influx of new technologies, as well as improvements upon existing ones, that have raised the bar of performance to what at the time seemed improbable.  Countless times through the years we?ve heard statements that a certain product had reached its limit, and a few months later the limit would be...

Soyo's SY-TISU Motherboard All Overclockers Welcome By, Jeff Bouton August 20, 2001 With the July release of Intel's new Tualatin processor, we are seeing an ever increasing number motherboard manufacturers incorporating support for the new processor into their designs.  And why not?  The PIII Tualatin CPU, based on a 0.13-micron manufacturing process, it capable of running at faster speeds while requiring less power than its predecessors based on a .18-micron process.   Marry those qualities up with the i815EP's B-stepping and you have the makings of a high-performance system, capable of running virtually any of today's most intensive applications.

  Intel's Pentium 4 1.8GHz. Processor Yielding additional gains in performance By, Dave Altavilla July 2, 2001 You may have heard this before but as the old saying goes, "image is everything".  When it comes to microprocessors, MHz./GHz. speeds are typically what draw a consumer to a product.  At this stage of the game, Intel seems to have that part of the routine down cold.  Our latest lab test of the Pentium 4 Socket 423 Processor clocks in at 1.8GHz., a full 400MHz. ahead of their rival (now nemesis) AMD.    Even though the numbers don't lie, so to speak, clock speed only paints half the picture.  As such, in an effort to get you on the inside track,...

The VSA-100 - Voodoo4 & 5 Dispelling The Myth A discussion with 3dfx Interactive       Thanks for stopping by folks. Tonight, we decided to have a little chat with our friends at 3dfx Interactive, Brian Burke P.R. Manager and Peter Wicher, Director of Product Marketing. It seems there has been some fairly serious debate around the net and in the industry about the architecture of 3dfx's next generation technology. Some believe that the next step for the Voodoo platform is not much more than an increase in clock speed with a few extra bells and whistles. We decided it was high time to get to the bottom of this debate and get some direct feedback from the people who are really... Read more...

  Sharp's Internet Viewcam - Size Matters...   Whoever came up with the saying, "size doesn't matter" was living in a dream world. This is a family show here at Hot Hardware, so we won't get into the specifics of the saying's origin. :-) However, as with most things in life, size DOES matter especially when it comes to file sizes that are being displayed or transferred over the internet. Although, many people around the world are fortunate enough to have high bandwidth internet services like Cable Modems and DSL, the vast majority, at least for the time being, are limited to a 53K dial-up connection at best. Remember the last time that insensitive T1 Web Screaming so-called... Read more...
