Bit-Tech have part 4 and part 5 of their gargantuan SLI article posted.

NewScientist have an article about the computing grid being built to cope with the data output of the Large Hadron Collider, which comes online in 2007. Inside a 27-kilometre-long circular tunnel that straddles the border of France and Switzerland 100 metres underground, the Large Hadron Collider will push protons to almost the speed of light and smash them head-on at energies never before created on Earth.

From Leon: Theres dual cores on shelves in Japan this week. Opteron 275 (2.20GHz) is 169,000 yen (AU$2115)?Opteron 270 (2GHz) 135,800 yen (AU$1700) and Opteron 265 (1.80GHz) 114,800 yen (AU$1435). Still too much for me though..

ExtremeTech have some more info on AGEIA's Physics Processor from E3. We saw a video of the demo, and it looks neat, but the highlight came when the plane crashed into the hangar and realistically destroyed stacks of crates and boxes in an explosion of interactivity we simply don't see in games.

Apple is recalling laptop batteries again. They're also considering Intel processors for future Macs, thanks AzzKikr.

Interesting news from TheInq, about solid state hard drives from Samsung. It can make SSDs to support capacities of up to 16GB, it said, suitable for notebook and tablet PCs, and with power consumption rates less than five per cent of current hard drives.

This Hong Kong based site has some benchmarks and info (translated) on VIA's K8T890 Pro dual-graphics solution, their answer to SLi.

Ocelotx spotted this monster video card on TomsHardware. It's from Gigabyte and sports two 6800GT GPUs, with 512MB of DDR3.

BigBruin have a fairly introductory article to memory types.

Anandtech have a comparison of multi-core technology from AMD and Intel. The Xeon MP Version 2007, alias Whitefield, will have 4 cores, and run at speeds at around 2.6 GHz. At that speed, there are reports that it would consume less than 90 Watt.
