The PS3 will have a speed of 2.18 teraflops, which by rule of thumb, equates to about the power of 50 PC's.

The graphics will make two 6800 Ultra's in SLI mode look slow.

Why not replace you're desktop with one of these running Linux? I'm first in the queue for one....

AMD Socket M2

I have heard rumours that AMD was considering a new socket for the near future, and now heres the pictures. http://www.pcpop.com/doc/0/86/86886.shtml The text is unreadable on my computer, but it does give a clear indication that AMD is looking at a new socket. There is a smaller socket next to the ...

Apoptosis, I have rearranged my Folding PC's as those with two instances are not running as they should (hence the number of PC's folding in the last 7 days has decreased). Therefore I will be removing an instance from the two PC's which are folding 24/7, and installing it on 3 more PC's, but they'l...

In the UK, what we define as being Reality TV, are TV shows (regardless of money being offered or not) that are based around peoples experience living. Whether that show be Pop Idol, Survivor, Big Brother, they are all classed the same. Now TV shows which show home makeovers are not classed as Reali...

April 15th brings tears to my eyes as in 1989, 96 fellow Liverpool Football Club supporters perished at a game of football.... This wasn't caused by a riot, a fire, a plane crash or some act of god. It was caused by the police filing supporters into a stand which already had twice as many people as ...

Prince Harry failing a basic computer assessment does not surprise me for two reasons. 1. With his parentage, wealth and amount of holidays he gets, he has very little time for a computer. (Well I've never seen one on tropical beaches nor on the ski slopes.) 2. With his parentage and wealth, he prob...

Normally when you are soldering and the pad / track lifts, its a sign that you have either left the soldering iron on too long (too much heat transferred to the PCB) or the soldering iron is too powerful! I normally use a low wattage soldering iron for such. (Modding PS/PS2 is normally my game.) Whi...

I currently have five PC's folding, four are 24/7, the fifth is a part timer. Would I qualify if I were to get four new accounts for these four 24/7 PC's and have 2 instances of folding per PC? :lol: (I did get Greyshade to join afterall!) I think I should win the 1GB for that suggestion alone! Back...

I've just jumped into 6th spot on the leader board, but Amy has a couple of large WU's (I think) in process which may just put her back into 6th for a short time.
