Why Pentium? by Talal Itani
Hello, I am in the market for a good computer, with a dual-core CPU. I keep reading that Athlon is better than Pentium, Athlon is faster than Pentium, and Athlon is lower priced than Pentium. But if that is the case, why do most businesses have Pentium based PCs and not Athlon based PCs?...

AMD to leave x86 behind? by YKhan
No real details here, just a "stay tuned" message, but that should be enough to start wild speculations running. "One strategic path that will knock you for a loop, and which I'll detail soon, is AMD's coming escape from the confines of Intel's x86 instruction set. To this point, AMD has resisted...

Intel strikes back with a parallel x86 design by Jim Brooks
Signs and portents as JMS would say. Stevel Jobs does a 180' and enthusiastically becomes Intel's bedfellow on the basis of a compelling roadmap. That roadmap has to be pretty darned interesting. Intel claims they aren't developing Hyperthreading anymore. But Intel now knows all the issues...

photonic x86 CPU design by Nathan Bates
A rumor is that yet another x86 startup company (as in Cyrix) has opened shop on Freedom Circle (which by no coincidence, is next-door to Transmeta). Dozens of tech companies tried to compete in the x86 arena and all failed (including AMD in terms of profitability). The twist is that this x86 CPU...

Is Itanium the first 64-bit casualty? by Yousuf Khan
Interesting reading here, and very common-sense. Itanium may be the next casualty in the 64-bit wars, when Itanium was the one that caused the 64-bit wars to start in the first place. http://www.infoworld.com/article/04/06/25/26enterwin_1.html Yousuf Khan -- Humans: contact me at ykhan at rogers...

Advantages of Parallel Hz by Radium[_2_]
Hi: Below is an example of "parallel Hz" http://img56.imageshack.us/img56/2427/clocksignalexample8is.gif If each clock signal is 1 Hz, and you have a billion of them, staggered such that every 1ns part of the CPU can start, and finish, an instruction - making the effective 'clock rate' 1 GHz.

Microsoft shortens Windows name by Yousuf Khan
The previously named Windows XP and 2003 "64-bit edition for 64-bit extended systems" has now just been shorted to "for X64". Eg. Windows XP Pro for X64 or Windows Server 2003 for X64. Looks like Microsoft has decided on X64 as the universal moniker for all X86-64 marketing names. Yousuf...
