[H]ardNews 4th Edition

Maybe it is just me, or is it all that Crack I have been smoking? I see more and more and more fan sites on the Net everyday. Here is another, this one for VIA of all folks. And here is a VIA Vs Intel chipset review. Now while they don't come right out and say it, I have to assume the guys that run the site are BIG VIA fans. I mean do you slave away over something you thinks sucks? I don't think so. Here is a quote that kinda got me thinking more on this. Keep in mind the BX chipset smoked in all the tests.

It is pretty obvious that if your buying a new Pentium 3 or a AMD Athlon that the VIA chipsets are hard to beat, especially if your overclocking as compared to the AMD 751 and Intel BX chipsets.

Anyway, my point here is this. How much totally objective reporting do you REALLY EXPECT out of "Fan Sites"? I have started a thread over in the HardForum and really want to know your opinion on this. This subject has come up several times in conversation over the last week and seems to be one some folks minds...

Here is more 3dfx Vs nVidia stuffs over at Extreme Hardware. I found it to be a good read with lots of reader and Usenet feedback. Lots of good points raised, we are put into question ourselves on the last page. Surely will keep you double checking your results when you started getting hung out in the press.

2CPU takes the Asus P2B-D, "D" for dually, for a couple of laps and decide that the board is certainly solid, it's features don't justify the price. Bummer.

Redwood over at Stomped has his own Voodoo5 6000 shots posted, and some comments to go along with them. The general consensus seems to be, "IT IS TOO DAMN BIG!"

While these boards don't seem to widely available, I am sure some of our Euro readers will appreciate it. MTO has got a review of a Soltek board posted and they look at it from an OverClockers vantage point.
