It is always going to be expensive to be on the cutting edge when you purchase new hardware. Is this extra cost worth the performance gain? When new technology is released, it is important to take an objective look at how the new technology compares to its predecessors. In this article, we take a look at the new features of the KT333 motherboards — ATA133 and DDR333, and separate the true performance from the hype.
AMS gBox P4 DDR Review
With the popularity of the Shuttle SV24 system, we have been on the lookout for a high end solution to satisfy the demands for a portable gaming machine. While the gBox can be much more than a gaming machine, its use of the Pentium4 processor and DDR memory, in conjunction with an AGP port, make it very well positioned to do very well in that sector. In this review, we’ll take a look at the gBox and what it can offer!
Shuttle FSYS-SV24 Review
In a world where personal computers are getting smaller and smaller, we’re seeing some great new implementations. Just how tightly can we pack everything into a tiny little box? In this review, we’ll take a look at the Shuttle FSYS-SV24, and ask ourselves: could it possibly be any smaller!?
nVidia GeForce4 – How Does it Compare?
With the recent release of the GeForce4 video card line, we can’t help but feel overwhelmed. We are being introduced to yet another set of video cards, and must determine their value and strengths. What is the GeForce4, and how does it compare to the other leading technologies out there?
ATI Radeon 8500 vs. nVidia GeForce3 Ti500
As part of the never-ending battle between ATI and NVIDIA, we take a look at the newest and fastest each has to offer. While the GeForce3 Ti500 claims to be the fastest video card there is, the Radeon 8500 claims to be the most advanced. Surprisingly, those descriptions are fairly accurate. So, which video card is right for you?
The Future of Computing
This is an exciting time in which to live. With scientific breakthroughs being made every day, it is awe inspiring to speculate the future of computing technology. What will today’s scientific discoveries mean to tomorrow’s computers? In this article, we will take a light look at quantum computing — how a structure as simple as four atoms can revolutionize computing!
System RAM Comparison
What are differences between SDRAM, DDR SDRAM, and RDRAM? What are the typical uses of each, and what is the best configuration at this time? We will take a look at the two most popular configurations, and what the future may look like for this topic.
Pentium4 vs. AMD AthlonXP
What are the differences? Intel continues to hold onto a very large share of the market with their new line of Pentium4 processors. In this article, we’ll take a look at why Intel chips are so dominant among computer system providers, and why Puget Custom Computers instead pushes the AMD AthlonXP series.
