AMD processors they believe to be completely true, as they´ve received it from their reliable sources. According to this post, the new AMD Ó FSB 333 íçÃ will be officially announced on October 7.
Boards on the following chipsets will theoretically support new CPUs (naturally, not all boards):
According to provisional data, the first 333 MHz FSB processor will be Athlon XP 2700+. In the beginning of the next year we´ll see Barton-based products (512KB L2 cache) supporting such FSB.
According to undisclosed sources, mobo makers have been developing 333 MHz FSB boards since the middle of August. The first chip samples are expected in September, followed by AMD certification program for new boards. Volume shipments of such boards and processors are expected in October.
Observers believe this will result in 30 million digital TV per year ($75 billion) demand. Korea Economic Daily thinks this gives a nice chance for Samsung and LG, that actively develop their digital TV products.
Samsung, aimed at the first place in the digital TV market, plans to spend about $300 million for marketing, but, perhaps, due to FCC decision this will become more than enough. By the year-end Samsung also plans to present new 40-inch digital LCD TV.
LG also tries to keep up and plans to spend about $200 million for marketing campaign that will continue until 2006. In the rather near future the company plans to present 50-inch PDP TV and 60-inch projector TV. Additionally, LG invests $90 million into a fab in Mexico to increase the amount of production lines from 3 to 12. Its yield is expected to make 3 million TVs per year, and the close location to USA makes us think all the TVs will be sold there.
Samsonite found another interesting application for Bluetooth: in March at CeBIT it showed this case:
The company promised that Hardlite ICT 625 business case will appear for sale already in September, but it hasn´t sounded somehow yet, though a similar case was noticed in retail. Pity, because Hardlite ICT 625 was promised to keep travel info, have some tricks against potential thieves, a security ID chip (though I guess the degree of belief to these chips won´t be high case-scale), and, most importantly, download all necessary info via Bluetooth.
Some specifications of DSC-F717:
Hewlett Packard announced the new Photosmart 850.
It features a 4-megapixel sensor and F:2.8 F:3.1 lens with 8È optical zoom. Camera´s maximum focal length is 300 mm (35 mm equiv.), maximum resolution is 2272x1712. The camera also has a 2-inch LCD monitor and EVF.Intel plans to start volume shipments of Springdale chipset for new-generation Pentium 4 with Prescott core in H1 2003. However, Taiwanese sources report that Springdale samples will become available for mobo makers already in September.
The official beginning of 845GE, 845PE and 845GV volume shipments (most likely the last chipsets from Intel for this year) is planned, according to The DigiTimes, to October 7. And limited consignments are being already shipped from the middle of August.
The top CanoScan LiDE 50 will appear for sale in the beginning of October for about $170. The model supports 1200x2400 dpi optical resolution, 16-bit internal and external color depth (RGB). In the 600 dpi mode scanner provides up to 6.4 ms per line for color documents and 3.1 ms per line for b&w documents. The scanner supports USB 2.0. CanoScan LiDE 50 dimensions are 258x374x38 mm, weight 1.8 kg.
CanoScan LiDE 30 (1200x2400 dpi, approx. $140) and CanoScan LiDE 20 (600x1200 dpi, approx. $120) will appear for sale in September. Both models support 16-bit internal and 8-bit external color depth (RGB), 600 dpi read makes about 16 ms per line for color and 5.3 ms per line for b&w documents. Models feature USB 1.1. Scanner dimensions are 256x383x 34 mm, weight 1.5 kg.Intel updated its page concerning processor wholesale selling prices. According to expectations, the company cut wholesale (for over 1000 units consignments) prices for 22 OEM products, maximum cut made 52%.
Yahoo message boards they posted a photo of a 4-processor Opteron system board, perhaps, torn out of some document. Nobody says this image represents a real board, but we have what we have...
