New 1GB modules are designed for compact comm systems, where standard 1.2 DIMM do not fit. New 512MB ECC SO-DIMM modules are designed for low-dimension and varisous comm devices, including wireless base stations, gigabit routers, VOIP gateways, and servers.Fujifilm, having been making two announcements a month, released FinePix M603 just after two weeks after FinePix F402.
FinePix M603 uses xD-Picture Card or IBM Microdrive. The latter might come in handy for recording 640È480, 30 fps movies. This mode beneficially outstands FinePix M603, though raises its price as well.
Main specifications are: 3G Super CCD, 3.1 million effective pixels; 4.4È digital zoom; 2x optical Super EBC Fujinon lens, 38-76 mm (35-mm equiv.); ISO 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600; hi-res continuous shooting (4 fps, up to 5 shots a serie); up to 30 sec voice comments.
The camera has 2.5-inch TFT LCD, featuring 118,000 pixels, and a special peak for outside shooting in the sunny weather.
FinePix M603 is expected for sale in November. With 512MB IBM Microdrive the camera will cost 700 euro and over.

Novelties (128M x 64 bit, 2 banks, PC2100, CAS Latency = 2, 2. 5) are based on 512 Mbit DDR SDRAM chips, made using 0.13-micron process technology, packaged into JEDEC´s standard 200-pin Small Outline DIMM (SO-DIMM) 3.8-mm thick.
Low height rides from double-sided, "double-layered" thin TCP (Tape Carrier Package) chip design, unlike other 1GB SO-DIMM modules, based on one layer of 16 TSOP 512 Mbit chips.Intel processor architecture after 2003? Japanese PC Watch posted some answers for such questions.
Intel is developing the new desktop CPU architecture, codenamed Nehalem. The first Nehalem CPUs are expected on 2004. Nehalem (called "Pentium 8" in Japan) will be based on the completely new architecture unlike Prescott, being the improved Pentium 4, and its Tejas successor.
There are no details about Nehalem architecture, but there´s an opinion that it will support not only Hyper-Threading, but will also be able to process more data flows. Presumably, it will also support new LaGrande technology.
How many transistors will Nehalem CPU contain? The question is still opened. Though if you follow the Moore´s law, Nehalem, made using 90nm process technology, will contain from 150 to 200 million transistors. Clock rates might raise to 7-8 GHz by that time.
Have a look at provisional Intel processor roadmap. It´s known that in H2 2003 the company is to present Prescott made using 90nm process technology. Tejas, the next version of Pentium 4 architecture, will appear in 2004. Nehalem, based on the new architecture, will be announced late in 2004. 65nm Tejas and Nehalem will appear in 2005.

EP-4T4AU is the second (after ASUS P4T533) mobo supporting 32-bit RIMM RDRAM and the first, based on I850E + ICH4. Pity, but news do not disclose how EpoX has succeeded to combine previously uncompatible i850E and ICH4 and 32-bit RDRAM. But the main thing is that it is real and the board is in retail. Let´s hope we´ll be able to lay our hands on it for testing soon.
Board brief specifications: 5 PCI slots, AGP 4È slot, two 232-pin RIMM for 32-bit PC600/PC800/PC1066 RDRAM (64 MB to 2 GB modules), IEEE 1394 and USB 2.0, 10/100Mb Fast Ethernet (Realtek RTL8100B), Ultra DMA-133 / IDE RAID (0, 1, 0+1) (HPT372). In Tokyo EP-4T4AU costs 19999 yens (about $165).
