- IBM Dual Core, fanless AMD PC,  BenQ, DFI, etc.
Following AMD and Intel path, IBM is preparing its very own dual-core G5 dubbed Antares as revealed at The Register here. The puppy should consume a lot of energy and would need watercooling. While competitors are getting hotter everyday AMD is getting cooler to the point we can find totally fanless PC in Akihabara Tokyo. The Hutch ATX seen here is based on Asus A8V deluxe board and Athlon 64 up to 3500+ without a single fan! Now let's stay in Asia with news coming from BenQ in China. According to EMSNow here, BenQ is among the top ten vendors in the middle Empire and will get even more AMD CPU in a near future. Good scores at 3DMark 05 have a sure impact on AMD's success and DFI announces here that LANParty mobo sportting nForce4 SLI is topping the whole competition and this is exactly what we need to play the AMD64 version of the WWII Tank Commander coming very soon as said here

- Cool'n'Quiet awarded, Ruiz Q&A, and more...
For saving up to 35W on a desktop, Cool'n'Quiet, the smart energy management on desktop Athlon 64, has been awarded by US Environmental Protection Agency a Energy Star Certificate and that's rather good news here. While travelling to Taiwan, Hector Ruiz, AMD CEO, answered to DigiTimes Q&A and provided some interesting information regarding Turion 64, ORNAND and many more here. The big boss did not talk about a possible lawsuit in Japan for being victim of Intel's unfair commercial practices but  Inquirer said here that a legal counter attack is very feasible.On the CeBIT front now, let us humbly add that we still have the best list of coverages around here in which day 2 of TechPowerUp! has been just added. Good read!

03/15/05 - CeBIT, OneNAND, new Xeon, and more...
The Hannover fiesta is now cooling down and this is the best time to enjoy the growing number of coverages we have here and  PC Watch and HardTec4U are among the best. CeBIT mass was the right place to announce Turion and we are happy to start the Turion 64 Special here with no less than 10 designs already! Thanks to Hector Ruiz' management, AMD's future looks a bit brighter and the Inq has something encouraging to say about it here, but  still, the flash remains a problem that could get even worth with growing competition from Samsung where OneNand,  ORNAND's direct competitor, is up and ready to bite as you will see here. Ready to bite also, the new Xeon "Trueland" is sharpening its fangs and Computer World has the detail right here, while, following Ferrari and Sauber Petronas, Renault F1 is now going Opteron with Linux and IBM's help. Heise has the good news translated here...

- CeBIT 2005, AMD needs fabs, 8-way Tyan, etc.
CeBIT 2005 just started and we already have enough lovely Turion 64 notebook to start a Special very very soon... In the meantime all the CeBIT 2005 coverages and new are stored here just like we did for CeBIT 2004 here. So the judiciary pressure is getting high for Intel, EU first, then Japan, and that's no all! According to Inq Inq here chipzilla could be forced by Cisco to licence HyperTransport for its LAN chips lineup. At the same time, AMD has some production contingency. According to PC Pro here AMD will ramp up K8 CPUs by 50 per cent and this is surely why the company is looking for additional mean of production as explained by Knobias here. If you're a big fan of DFI LANParty then you'll be happy to read an nice interview of the charming Mrs Vivian Lien at Legit Reviews Here.and, if this not enough, then get consoled with a Tyan 8-way Opteron board coming from Cebit 2005 here. Enjoy!
