The Inquirer is reporting that Intel is focusing on the Overclocking/Modder MArket in the next up-coming Motherboard with the Springdale (P & G) Chipsets.

And the biggest surprise of all, according to the sources, will be a motherboard codenamed "Rapid City", which is likely to include an array of overclocking functions and come in a black PCB just to excite case modders out there.It apparently comes with ICH5, and so support for Serial ATA. And the same sources claim Intel is also showing its ideas for a "new" kind of case to prevent build up of heat. This includes a big blow hole complete with a 60 millimetre tube going directly to the CPU fan and so distributing cool air straight onto the heatsink.

On the other side of the Chip Industry, DigiTimes.com is reporting that AMD are considering extending its 2600+ XP's to 333Mhz FSB which the reported current 2700+ & 2800+ alredy have. More info on DigiTimes.com.

Looks like Palm is back, well according to HardwareZone it is. HardwareZone has a look at the new Palm Tungsten T. Which sports a new ARM processor by Texas Instruments, a dual-modeslider design and the 5-way Navigator. For more info head over to the HardwareZone.com website.
