Extra News Blast On Thursday Afternoon From Sunny Sydney

| Posted: Feb 14, 2002 5:09 am

Ok quite a bit of extra news has flowed in so let's get on with it.

 

The big rumour mill over the web today is the AMD's "Claw Hammer" is already out sampling and things maybe going so well that it maybe seen at next month's CeBIT Show in Hanover. Also most sources seem to agree that AMD maybe in a position to jump the gun with this CPU. AMD has also confirmed that the CPU will come with a metal head spreader over the core to dissipate heat evenly and protect the core against damage.
I myself just can't wait to see it in action as claims make it to be 30% faster that an equivalent clocked Athlon and debuting at 3400+ PR may have Intel more than worried as their P4 product is only scheduled to be at 3GHz by then.

 

Over at Ars Technica they have an in-depth look at Microsoft's .NET plans and features. They explain a lot of it for you such as the reasons behind it and what you can expect from it.
So head on over there and find out just what Microsoft want to push onto all of us.
