[H]ardNews 3rd Edition

Now for a little news, most of which you might have already seen, sorry. Hard to stay on top of things from abroad.

The girlz over at Hardware Central have gone total nuts and posted the entire Radeon Presentation. Lot's of information there to soak up.

A HardOCPer saw this nVlink over at nVnews and thought is was something to pass along. Surprisingly enough it is about nVnot nVidia. Rather it looks at some ram mods used to up the MHz of a stick of PC100. Entertaining, but probably not real practical. The site is called PC Pop.

Even more lapping of Celerons. Some of you will be interested in this if you are a newbie. Bottom line, many times it works. Check out Hardware Corner for the goods.

I don't know what the hell this guy is doing, but it is of interest at the very least. Make your own RDRam. Let me know if it works.........sure.

Dandy Andy Drake has a look at the Tyan KX133 mainboard. I was laughing as him for running that funky Tom Jones banner, then I noticed it on the top of our page. Guess I will shut up eh? :)

You ever go to Chick's Hardware? The name is kinda of misleading. I could not find any nekkid babes anywhere, but he did have a quick write up covering who Gigapixel is and what they will mean to the future of Vid Cards.

A good and funny example of what happens when you put nVida folks and 3dfx folks in the same room and turn them loose on each other. Thanks to Evil Avatar for the madness.

The new Winzip's HERE, the new Winzip's HERE!!!!! Thanks Brian.

This in from Michael Berthold:

Got this in my mail from Guillemot, titled “Guillemot Video Card News” for April 2000 and apparently aimed at registered card owners. I got a Maxi Gamer 2 (don’t laugh!) a year ago and this is the first mail I’ve gotten, I guess they update their mailing lists once a year or something. Anywayz, they state:

“As you may now, Guillemot Corporation acquired Hercules in October 1999. All future graphics products from Guillemot will now fall under the Hercules brand name. http://www.hercules.com “

All I have to say is, "Thank gawd I don't have to struggle with saying their damn name anymore...."
