Toshiba is to ship its high-end all–in-one A4 notebooks DynaBook G7. The company is to release three models, differing by processors and LCD displays. All three feature DVD-R/RW recorders supporting DVD-RAM media. They also feature multipurpose bays for the second optical drive, additional HDD, battery pack, TV tuner, etc.
G7/U24PDDW (about $3300) on Intel 845MP chipset has 15" 1600x1200 (UXGA) LCD display (Fine SuperView), 2.40GHz Mobile Pentium 4-M, 512Mb PC2100 (up to 1Gb), 32Mb DDR GeForce4 460 Go, 60Gb HDD, Windows XP Professional and Office XP Personal. Besides, it features built-in 2.1-ch. soundsystem from Harman/Kardon with integrated subwoofer, PC Card Type II and SD card ports, built-in IEEE 802.11b and Bluetooth 1.1 interfaces, V. 90 modem, USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394 ports, D-Sub15, S/PDIF, TV-Out connectors. It’s dimensions are 334x305.8x38.2mm, weight 3.6 kg.
Other model, including G7/X19PDEW (about $2900) and G7/X19PDE (about $2500), feature 1.9GHz Mobile Pentium 4-M processors, 256Mb RAM, 15" 1400x1050 LCD displays, Windows XP Home Edition. The lower-end model doesn’t have TV tuner and IEEE 802.11b interface as well.

Where can you see such a nice cooler?
On the Gigabyte 8INXP daughterboard, for example. Window view... What window?

Fujitsu PC Corporation (FPC), a division of Fujitsu Limited, started shipments of next-generation LifeBook C all-in-one multimedia portable PCs called to replace desktops. New models differ by a new DVD-RW option.
LifeBook C Series notebooks are based on ATI Mobility RADEON IGP340M with 64Mb graphics, 2.0GHz Pentium 4-M and have 14" or 15" XGA LCD, 256Mb SDRAM (768Mb max), 60/40/30Gb HDD, built-in floppy drive, DVD-RW or DVD/CD-RW, or DVD, or CD-ROM drive, Ethernet, modem, PC Card Type I/ II or Type III and MemoryStick / SecureDigital slots, USB 2.0 ports, IEEE 1394, S-video, etc. features, optional Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11b) interface, and Windows XP Home / Windows XP Professional / Windows 2000 Professional.
3Dlabs launched volume shipments of its Wildcat4 7110 and Wildcat4 7210 professional graphics cards announced in October 2002. According to the 3Dlabs Wildcat Partner Program, they’ve become available at ASI, Bell Micro-Canada, D&H, Exxact, and Ingram Micro.
Wildcat4 7110 and Wildcat4 7210 are already used in high-performance workstations from 3Dlabs partners like Dell and IBM. You can freshen Wildcat4 7110 and Wildcat4 7210 specifications in our "3Dlabs announces one entry level and two AGP 8x Wildcat4 cards" news.
Similar to SL-75FRN, SL-75FRN-R, and SL-75FRN-RL, the SL-75FRN-L has ATX form-factor and features NVIDIA nForce2 SPP + MCP chipset, AGP 8x slot, 5 PCI slots, 3 DIMM sockets (Dual DDR SDRAM 400/333/266MHz), 10/100 Ethernet LAN port, USB2.0/1.1 port, 6-ch. audio.
Today Soltek updated mobo specifications. It’s interesting that the board we have features yellow PCB (Golden Flame series), but SL-75FRN-R/SL-75FRN are declared violet PCB. Similar to SL-75FRN-R/SL-75FRN, the SL-75FRN-RL and SL-75FRN-L of Golden Flame series differ by integrated Serial ATA and Parallel ATA 133 RAID controllers of the latter.
EIZO Nanao: ColorEdge CG21 and ColorEdge CG18, are really the former bundled with additional software for color calibration. First, the ColorNavigator software for Windows 2000/XP and Mac 0S 9.22.5 / Mac OS X together with GretagMacbeth’s i1 sensor allows to set optimal screen gamma for every need, and, second, these monitors have a special feature for controlling and adjusting brightness depending on environment temperature walks.
21" ColorEdge CG21 features 1600x1200 (UXGA) resolution, 0.27mm pixel pitch, 50ms response time, 250cd/m² brightness, 400:1 contrast, 170° vertical and horizontal viewing angle. The monitor has USB 1.1 port, analog and digital DVI-I connectors, and is bundled with an ADC-DVI adapter for PowerMac G3/G4. Measured 472x208.5x459mm, it weighs 10.2 kg. ColorEdge CG21 shipments are planned to May, MSRP – about $3750.
18.1" ColorEdge CG18 (on the left) features 1280x1024 (SXGA) resolution, 0.2805mm pixel pitch, 40ms response time, 250cd/m² brightness, 400:1 contrast, 170° vertical and horizontal viewing angle. The monitor has a USB hub, analog and DVI-I connectors, and is bundled with an ADC-DVI adapter for PowerMac G3/G4. Measured 399x203x404 mm, it weighs 8 kg. Sales of ColorEdge CG18 are scheduled to April, MSRP – about $2500.

New high-end iMac model features 17" wide-format LCD monitor, 1GHz PowerPC G4 with 133MHz FSB, 256Mb DDR, 64Mb NVIDIA GeForce4 MX graphics, 4x DVD-R/CD-RW SuperDrive combo, built-in 54Mbps AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth wireless interfaces. The system costs $1799 in retail.
Another iMac novelty features 15" LCD monitor, 800MHz G4 and costs $1299 that’s $200 less than the initial price of its predecessor.
Both new models have 2 FireWire 400 ports and 5 USB ports each. No FireWire 800 support has been announced in them.
ATI RADEON 9500 64MB, 9500 128MB, 9500 PRO, 9700 and 9700 PRO in DirectX 9.0 also shows) the reason of unsuccessful remakes of 9500 into 9700 (causing visual artefacts) is the Hier.Z-buffer disabled in 9500 GPUs and enabled in 9700.
Perhaps, ATI Radeon 9500 is partially made of chips with defects in this block, causing visual artefacts in 3D when enabled.
Soft9700 software remake just makes 9500 look like Radeon 9700 for drivers. At that, it enables all 8 pipelines and HZ. Now this problem is solved as well and you can force HZ off via RivaTuner. As the RivaTuner creator, Alexey Nikolaychuk aka Unwinder, posted in our forum, "OpenGL driver was extremely disassembled and the encrypted key for disabling HierarchicalZ in OpenGL was found. Now those unlucky can get rid of artefacts in both OGL, and D3D".
The method is: RivaTuner´s creator has disassembled the OpenGL driver and found a way to disable HierarchicalZ via an OpenGL registry key (ATI encrypts registry keys like NV).
The key name is "An6aYj2vwKuKd9brxl7", type "REG_DWORD". Changing algorithm: 0 disables HZ, 1 enables HZ, strictly setting to 0 enables R9500 mode.
The key is located in OpenGLPrivate branch. If you are sure you can do this yourself, just add the necessary parameters, otherwise, try using RivaTuner database (about 300 bytes) that will correctly set HZ for D3D/OGL for Catalyst 62xx under Windows 2000/XP. You will have to load this file, open it in RivaTuner´s PowerUser tab (Open button in database), and edit it in HZ key in the PowerUser tab.
After this all remade 9500-9700 should work fine.
