6/30/2000: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX: potency GeForce for all the publics

    NVIDIA has just done obsoletely to the chip GeForce256 originally with the throwing of the new one GeForce2 MX, a species of GeForce2 GTS of low price and the highest services.
    The new chip works to 175 MHz (the GeForce256 works to 120 MHz) and  something is made by 0,18 micron s technology , so that his consumption is of less than 5 W (he does not need fan), that it allows him to be installed in portable computers and that it eliminates the problem of the high temperature of functioning of the first GeForce.
    Also, two new technologies are added, or rather the review of two already well-known technologies: Digitalis Vibrance Control (to improve the sheen and color of the images) and TwinView (to connect to the same card 2 monitors, or 1 monitor and a digital panel, or 2 TVs, or...).
    To end, one affirms that the cards GeForce2 MX will be economic, and that there will be versions for PC, for Apple Macintosh, for portable, AGP and PCI. Undoubtedly, NVIDIA is the leader of the market...

6/29/2000: New Willamette de Intel will call... Pentium 4

    Well, the official news is finished practically here, except for presenting the new logo (beautiful, undoubtedly) and for stressing that will be thrown "in the second half of the year 2000". As for the exact date...:?
    The initial speed will be about the 1,3 - about 1,4 GHz; it keeps on being 32 bits (it must not make a mistake with the professional Itanium of 64 bits); the system bus will be much major than 133 current MHz (perhaps of 200 MHz, probably more); and it is supposed that it will use memory Rambus... although on the above mentioned, better not to do bets.

6/28/2000: ROUTE does not give up before Rambus: entire support to the DDR-SDRAM

    Textually, ROUTE declares that "he re-confirms his unequivocal intention of supporting the next open standard Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM". It seems that the Taiwanese company, which has not begun behind in other occasions before companies so powerful as the very same Intel, is afraid by no means neither of Rambus, nor of his pretensions on clear keys in the above mentioned memory, nor much less to the insult and expensive memory Rambus-DRAM.
    This support does not think to remain only in words: the first chipsets with support of memory DDR (and of course, also of the current one PC133, which Intel begins adopting now) are already in tests, and one waits for entire production capacity at the end of this year.
    And on adopting the memory Rambus, the official answer might be summed up in "not, thank you very much".

6/28/2000: Microsoft announces the new language C#

    Members of Microsoft have described the new computer language C# (that evidently "C sharp" pronounces, that is to say, "supported Do") like "a C ++ with all the characteristics of Java".
    Of this is a truth, it would be very beneficial for Microsoft, which Java remains involved in a hard legal battle with Sun Microsystems by the supposed infraction (well, perhaps the very probable infraction) on the part of Microsoft of the license of successfully.
    This language would be indicated especially for the programming faced to Internet, and especially to facilitate the applications creation in the future standard XML. The version alpha of the language is waited for the next month, and the definitive one probably will be a part of the Visual Studio 7.0.

6/27/2000: Is Intel against its own Celeron?

    Intel has presented three new microprocessors Celeron for dessert computers, with 700, 667 and 633 MHz speeds ; nevertheless, the authentic news is in the fact that the above mentioned Celeron: they keep on using a speed of only 66 MHz bus !!
    Numerous analysts warn that his yield will turn out to be affected by the clear "neck of bottle" that supposes this bus, after 10 has an internal speed more times top to the day pupil (or "of bus"). The most incredible thing is that there does not seem to exist any technical motive for supporting a speed of bus that nowadays no other mike model already does not use for PC, either of Intel or of AMD.
    ... For it, the explanation perhaps is in the commercial area. Intel must know perfectly that the Celeron, if they had a speed of bus of 100 133 MHz, might compete on equal terms with a lot of more expensive Pentium III... and one does not want to take market from herself. Nevertheless, perhaps it should bear in mind that the new cheap microprocessor of AMD, the Duron, uses a bus of neither more nor less than 200 MHz... and the authentic Intel competition is undoubtedly AMD, not the Celeron.
    In another completely different things order, Intel presented last week his new chipsets 815 and 815E, in addition to five new mikes for portable, including a portable Pentium III to 600 MHz that consumes less than 1 W in saving way. Certainly, the Celeron for portable use a 100 MHz bus ...
