Re: AMD's Fusion Processor Delayed Until 2011

Sounds like AMD is planning on a balanced future with their release and when the economy tends to pick itself up again. Hopefully, this will allow a little more time to work out other issues with these chips. It would be nice to talk about 128-bit CPU's vs. the 64-bit today. Years back, going from 8...

Re: 357 instead of 400 !

Great post of information. Speed isn't everything if the whole system isn't in tune. That little loss of 100Mhz vs. gaining the memory speed is minor. I'll go with the memory speed. Now that you have the machine tuned well with the timings and such, are you folding for team LR? (just had to put that...

Would OpenOffice Base (like Excel) do the job?

It's FREE.

Re: AMD Phenom II X4 940 Processor Review

I just recommended a i7 setup for gaming and kind of regretting it now. These numbers don't look to bad. With a budget, Phenom II is an overall win as you can spend less money on the CPU/mobo/memory and put more money into the GPU configuration. Without a budget, Core i7 is the ideal platform but n...

Re: AMD Phenom II X4 940 Processor Review

The article was a good read. =D> This has given me hope in AMD once again. They may not be king of the hill, but they do have a worthy product now for great consideration. At this time, I'm running AMD X2s. Didn't want to jump into the quad since there were still outstanding issues. Now with this ar...

Re: PS3 worth it to fold on anymore? - Poll added

When the PS3 started into the folding arena, it was scaling the WU's and points like crazy. It was noticed that the PS3 was a very serious contender to deal with. If I'm not mistaken, Standford reduced the points for the PS3 to be a closer leading competitor of these dual cores. Now with Quad cores ...

Re: CES 2009: NVIDIA Ion, OLEDs and D-Link Sidestage

Hope that the D-Link SideStage can compete with the 7" DVD personal players in price. Else, it may flop since I do have a 7" DVD player with display from Wal*Mart that has an S-video port to play what's on my laptop onto it. The laptop then is configured to dual displays. Neat idea, it needs more th...
