Story of the moment seems to be MXM, a new nVidia standard for upgradeable portable graphics. Wish I could turn the GeForce2Go in my laptop into something a bit more powerful. :) Info/previews on Hexus, TrustedReviews, TweakTown, HotHardware (who also have ATI's comments on the news) and HardOCP.

Lycos joins Google and Yahoo in offering a 1GB email service. Google, not to be outdone, has quietly experimented with terabyte email accounts. Crazy!

AMD announced a China group today, continuing their push into that market. They've also announced that a free copy of Far Cry will be included with every A64 or A64FX CPU bought from participating system builders worldwide through June 2004 or while supplies last.

AMD also have some new Opterons and Tech-Report checked them out, thanks Murray.

E3 coverage on TheTechZone, LanManiac, DriverHeaven and OCClub.

ARP have updated their comparison of desktop GPUs, the chips that power video cards. Xbit meanwhile looked at value processors, 24 of them, from Intel and AMD. Combining these ideas, TweakTown looked at value GPUs, while Bit-News compared two GeForce 5900XT cards.

Actually, TweakTown have had a busy few days, with ABIT ACON4 coverage, a comparison of three P4 cores and some CeBIT 2004 coverage. Of course, you can check out our coverage here.

From titan: Once again, Dr Kildare is organising Battle@Matchrix, a gaming competition between the forum goers of Atomic and OCAU. Sadly, we only have 5 people interested from OCAU, yet Atomic has a full team. We can't let that happen can we? We have room for another 5, and as many spectators as we like. So get your arse over to this thread and register for a great night of fr-AGG-ing. The details of when, where, cost and transport are in that thread too.
