The end of the road for the DIY PC? by Yousuf Khan[_2_]
Intel has announced that they will stop making replaceable CPU's after Haswell. From now on, all CPU's are supposed to be in BGA packaging, which means you can only attach CPU's to the motherboard by soldiering them on. You won't be seeing these in any home DIY's toolkit, so it's the end of the...

Why is the Quad-Core rated at a higher clock speed than the more expensive Eight-Core, not to mention the Six-Core FX-6300,...

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...
