Issue 10 of TheOverclocker is out now. There's Computex info, interviews with top overclockers from around the world, etc.

I think my nerdometer just imploded, with this site about a Sci-Fi Airshow, thanks timbot. The SCI-FI AIR SHOW’s purpose is to preserve and promote the rich and varied history of Sci-Fi/fantasy vehicles.

When the cameras stopped rolling, many of these proud old ships were lost and forgotten. Please join us in working to keep these rare and beautiful birds soaring!

XbitLabs are in a comparative mood, with Asus Crosshair IV Formula and Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7 AM3 motherboards, GeForce GTX 480 SLI vs. Radeon HD 5870 CrossFire and GeForce GTX 470 SLI against Radeon HD 5970. Radeon HD 5970 has long remained the leader among gaming graphics accelerators. Today it is facing a very dangerous rival - GeForce GTX 470 SLI tandem that may be a sign of the arrival of a new dual-GPU Nvidia graphics card.

Phoronix meanwhile compared five Linux distributions. With many Linux distributions receiving major updates in recent weeks and months we have carried out a five-way Linux distribution comparison of openSUSE, Ubuntu, Fedora, PCLinuxOS, and Arch Linux. We have quite a number of tests comparing the 32-bit performance of these popular Linux distributions on older PC hardware.
