A bazillion people sent word that Opera 8 final is now available for download.

Tech-Report have a dual-core Opteron test report, while HWAnalysis consider Intel's dual-core plans. TheInq says dual-core Athlons are shipping tomorrow (today?), thanks Ambush.

TweakTown have an investigation into DDR timing/speed settings. CoolTechZone meanwhile think that Intel knew DDR2 was a poor design and that AMD may skip DDR2 altogether.

HardCoreWare compared SATA and SATA-II HDD's from Western Digital, Seagate, Maxtor and Hitachi. Meanwhile, TCMag compared AGP and PCI-E. LegionHardware compared them too, on AMD systems.

From XAJIM: Just some info on Intels chips that take advantage of WiMax technology. Oh and Intel dual cores are out and about (guess everyone knows this already really).

HotHardware revisited SLI, comparing a dual Asus Extreme N6600GT setup with various single-card configs.

PenStarSystems have some musings about AMD's fabrication processes over time. If we take a look at AMD's past, we can see how far they have come in terms of their process implementations.

From Lucus Maximus: Just a piece of news with GameStop buying EBGames for $1.44B USD creating a company with a total of 3,800 stores world wide, 3200 stores in the US and 600 stores abroad (148 stores in Australia and New Zealand). More info here, here, here, here, here and here. Crikey.

HWZ have a roundup of nForce 3 Ultra motherboards, for your A64 CPUs.

From Kildare, about the next Battle@Matchrix: Going to be the final Battle@Matchrix & the scores are locked @ three a piece so it would be good to see OCAU there in full force to settle the score once & for all.
