Interesting read about upcoming K9 processors by Yousuf Khan
http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20040726PR202.html This interview with Tyan president Symon Chang provided the following quotes: "Around 2006, when the market moves to AMD's next generation of chips, you will be able to go over 8-way. What I mean is that with eight sockets, and dual cores, you...

Microsoft shortens Windows name by Yousuf Khan
The previously named Windows XP and 2003 "64-bit edition for 64-bit extended systems" has now just been shorted to "for X64". Eg. Windows XP Pro for X64 or Windows Server 2003 for X64. Looks like Microsoft has decided on X64 as the universal moniker for all X86-64 marketing names. Yousuf...

Gaming AMD vs Intel by [email protected]
I read the following article http://tinyurl.com/8s2aa on amdzone.com. Extremetech looks at gameplay experience comparing AMD and Intel CPUs. I'm surprised they used DDR2 533, but then of course if they were on the real ball they would be using faster than DDR400 using the Lanparty

Vista disables Cool'N'Quiet on some motherboards by YKhan
AMD's Cool'n'Quiet support is supposed to be natively built into Vista (no need for drivers). However, they are finding that C'n'Q setups that were working fine under XP, no longer work under Vista. People have been waiting for BIOS updates for their motherboards, and some have found that the BIOS...

Pretty good explanation of x86-64 by HP by Yousuf Khan
I found this whitepaper from HP to be pretty good, it is surprisingly candid, considering HP was the coinventor of the Itanium. It does a pretty good job of explaining and summarizing the similarities and differences between AMD64 and EM64T, and their comparison to the Itanium's IA64 instruction...

WinXP-64 and Athlon64 by Peter Tran
Hi, I've got a Athlon64 3200+ and wanted to know if it would be worth it to download the WinXP-64 beta release from Microsoft? 1) First question is, does the new OS also require 64-bit drivers for all my periphs? Will the 32-bit drivers also work? 2) Second question, although the OS will be...

The future of PCs by Tim
64 bit architecture, multiple cores, it's all wonderful stuff. But as everyone probably knows, without a mainstream 64bit OS with solid drivers, without 64bit apps optimized for multithreading, it's all a bit premature. I know that this technology has its advantages now but when will it be...

powernow on amd64 by Vermyndax
I currently have Cool N Quiet disabled in my BIOS. I didn't think it would have that big of an impact on my processor's health, so I switched it off. With WinXP 64-bit about to come out, I'm rethinking this. Is there anyone using it and what benefits has it provided you (if any)? --JM

Advantages of going XP64 by Black Shuck
Is there any benefits loading XP 64bit version instead of normal 32bit XP? It seems driver support is less than complete. I only have 1GB of RAM in my AMD64 3500+ system, so do not need the extended memory addressing. Is there any other benefit of a 64bit operating system? or is it snake oil?
