[H]ardNews 3rd Edition

We have to post this, because it is one of the first small guys, Won, to put a Voodoo5 and GeForce2GTS head to head. We see some of it won by nVidia and some by 3dfx. nVidia seems to have the raw framerate power while 3dfx handily cleans up with FSAA. It is all going to go back to what exactly you want when comparing the two cards for purchase. Also, this is a poorly written review, but the facts are the facts. Thanks Freddy!

This one is for all our Linux fans out there!! Actually if you did not know, we used a Redhat/Apache combo here on the HardOCP.... Anyways, CPU Review has a look at TurboLinux Workstation and gives us the good, the bad, and the nasty.

Check here for the NEW nVidia 5.16 drivers. 3D Chipset has them posted. I got mines, yous gots yourns!? Be warned these are NOT official drivers and could hose your stuffs!! Still fun to try them out though. The subject of "leaked" drivers did come up in our meeting with nVidia on Tuesday. We did ask if the drivers were REALLY leaked or was it a marketing ploy by nVidia. Derek Perez explained to us with much emotion that the drivers are in fact being leaked from an unknown source. It was also admitted that it worked out pretty good for nVidia too. :) But, they are still trying to find the source(s). I can see where this would be an extremely tough task considering all the OEMs, MFGs, and game developers have the files.....

Our buddy Andy at the Tech Report breaches a VERY touchy subject. First Person Shooters and Violence in our society. I personally know after I waste about sixty or so fellow fraggers, I am usually too mentally exhausted to go kill a bunch of real people down at the post office. The option of going to prison for the rest of my life or being killed by injection is somewhat of a deterrent also.

Now I am really confused. I was an 3dfx Whore yesterday, now I am an nVidiot. Jeez, you guys gotta make up your minds... :) I am still at a crossroads with the whole issue, is being a whore better than being an idiot or vice versa?

Also I know many of you have been looking for 533 and 566 Celerons for tweaking on, Azzo has them and YES, the prices are already coming down.
