    ferrari 4000

    I am pretty sure this is the notebook I will be getting come September. The only thing I wish it would have is a SATA port, or a SATA port on the EzDock which connects via PCI express. Also too bad Seagates 160 7200rpm drives won't be out until 2006.

    Theoretical System specs... with a few gaps.

    I never really learned all about CAS timings, so is this CL2 or CL3? I am looking for 1BG or 2GB ECC Registered Dimms to run in a dual Opteron setup. Each CPU with 2 dimms. I would really like low latency ram.

    MySQL bytes per record

    I am trying to do some calculations as the amount of hard drive space I am going to need. Basically I am looking to create a 318,934 x 8 array. The IEEE Standard 754 is common to C compilers (so I read). The numbers are real numbers small enough to use the single data type which occupies 4...

    What books would anyone suggest for learning Visual C++ .NET 2003 or Visual J# .NET 2003.

    AMD Stock - How Much Money Have You Made

    You just got to hold on. I bought in 2002 at $10.74 and then the share price went all the way down to $3.50. I new AMD was a worth more than that so I didn't worry about it. If you look long term, you'll do fine, try to play it short and you better be good because its really easy to get screwed...

    AMD Stock - How Much Money Have You Made

    With the possibility of Dell using Opterons AMD share price has went up about $4.00 in two days. So how much money have you guys made? And how high do you think it is going to go? I bought stock on May 7th 2002, March 1st 2004, and May 3rd 2004. I don't have that much money so my total...

    Are all USB 2.0 devices backwards compatible with USB 1.1

    Are all USB 2.0 devices backwards compatible with USB 1.1? I am going to be getting an external hard drive enclosure. The notebook I have only has USB 1.1 ports. So will a external hard drive enclosure, such as this BYTECC ME-740U2FB, with a USB 2.0 interface work with my laptop? I looked...

    Future Mobile Technology

    The Seagate hard drive isn't exaclty a mobile drive, but I'm wishing it will someday end up in the mobile market. The one thing that we do need to look at is the power consumption if we really want to consider this for everyday notebook computers. Seagate Savvio 10k rpm 8W seek power...

    CPUs AMD Athlon 64 Mobile (Oakville) is the 90nm successor to the Mobile Clawhammer core, and was released on August 17th. The new AMD part is around half the size (84mm2 versus 145mm2) of its 130nm counterpart and consumes around half the power (35W versus 62W). The initial versions of...

    AMD Athlon64 radio commercial

    Anyone else her this commercial (97.9 the Loop ~ Chicago). I was really suprised because AMD hardly does any advertising. The commercial was basically a back to school commercial, it was actually kinda funny. I think it was done in conjunction with HP, because it mentioned $150 off on HP...

    AMD on Lance Armstrong

    AMD needs better marketing. All they need to do is promote the sponorships they have to the general public as a start. Sponsorships with Ferrari and Lance Armstrong would surely be impressive to many average consumers. AMD has just not capitalized on this enough.

    AMD on Lance Armstrong

    There actually was a commercial about AMD's sponsorship, the Trek guys go on about how it provided them with the power they need to design Lance's winning Tour de France bikes. The comercial ended after Lance Armstrong breifly talked about how the AMD Athlon 64 systems his team uses have gotten...

    A64 and DDR2

    Due to the high latency of DDR-II, this standard is unable to out-perform DDR-I clock for clock. The advantage of DDR-II is that it can be clocked at higher speeds than DDR-I, therefore compensating for its higher latency. Currently the fastest rated DDR-II modules are at 667MHz, even at this...

    Dell Funay

    I think one thing worth noting is that all the recent speculation has been about Dell using Opterons. I highly doubt Dell will offer consumer products based on AMD processors for quite a while. The reason Dell contemplates AMD servers is 1) to get better pricing from Intel 2) Opteron is beating...

    Since SATA and SAS SCSI drives will be using the same conection interface, will the SAS SCSI drives require a raid card or will they be able to be used like any other SATA hard drive? Thanks

    External SATA for a laptop

    Has anyone heard of any laptop manufacture that is going to offer external SATA ports? I know there were some issues with SATA-I not being shielded well enough, conector not robust enough, but I had also heard that they were trying to fix these problems in the SATA-II spec. Anyone have any idea...

    Quad Opteron [H]ard|Ness!!!

    I second that. If you are going to spend the money get the PC3200. Correct me if I am wrong, but the perfomance increase is substainial due to faster ram and lowered latencies becasue things are running in sync.

    How do you think Intels Yamahill will affect AMD's share price

    Here is what someone else posted on AMDs investment board on Yahoo. It may actually help AMD by driving the conversion to 64-bit software and by then most of AMD's processor sales should be 64-bit and possibly likewise for Intel. I could be bad if Intel's solution is better but from what I...
