Today Intel also unveiled the new processors for the Pentium D series: 840, 830 and 820 (3.2GHz, 3.0GHz and 2.8GHz). All are made using 90nm process for LGA775 socket, have 1MB L2 per core and 800MHz FSB. HT is not supported.
The company also released Pentium 4 HT 670 (3.8GHz) CPU: 90nm process, LGA775, 2MB L2, 800MHz FSB, Intel Virtualization Technology.
All 4 novelties support EM64T, Enhanced SpeedStep, Execute Disable Bit.
Prices recommended by the vendor are:
Now we can just wait until the wave of new machines on these CPUs storms the middle-end market.
From today on the recently released Intel 955 chipset series, which is designed for high-end and expensive machines, is accompanied by a mainstream 945 chipset series for mid-end computers. At the moment the series includes two solutions: discrete 945Ð and integrated 945G. Comparing to 955, the features are:
As you remember, the announcement of ATI Radeon X800XL graphics card with 512MB onboard caused a whole wave of releases based on X800XL/X850 with the same amount of memory. Now NVIDIA-based vendors are catching up. While BFG mentioned its 512MB card even before the aforementioned release from ATI, Leadtek decided to make its turn now, when the hype around ATI products began to calm down.
WinFast PX6800Ultra TDH 512MB goes on sale tomorrow, May 27, priced as "cheap" as ¥99,750 ($920!). It supports PCI Express x16 interface, API DirectX 9.x/OpenGL 1.5 and NVIDIA SLI.
The GPU clock rate is 400MHz, while 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 operates at 1,050MHz. The latter value is 50MHz lower than that of a similar 256MB card. The throughput is thus reduced from 35.2GB/s to 33.6GB/s.
Interfaces include 2 x DVI-I, 1 x S-Video. The bundle includes DVI-VGA adapter.

AMD published an overview, specs and developer recommendations of its Pacifica hardware virtualization technology designed to work on AMD64 CPUs. Developed in close cooperation with Microsoft, VMware and XenSource, the innovation is called to provide flexibility, manageability and security for running several operating systems on a single machine.
This technology appends to the Open Platform Management Architecture intended for remote management of AMD-based servers and is similar to Intel Virtualization Technology.
The Pacifica was introduced at LinuxWorld Summit. The first CPUs with support for it are to arrive in Q1 2006.
Still more and more media players are storming the market. These days VWB (Video Without Boundaries) introduced MediaReady Flyboy with a 20GB hard drive and 3.5" display. Flyboy, like the recently announced Pepper Pad, operates under Linux.
Onto its hard drive Flyboy can record G.726 audio and MPEG-4 video through dedicated interfaces and can play MP3, RM audio through a speaker or 3.5mm interface and 320x240 video through a TV-out (NTSC, PAL B/G, PAL D/K, PAL I/J).
Fujitsu updated its ultra portable notebook series with LifeBook B6000 that features 12.1" touchscreen and weighs less than 1.5kg.
Fujitsu LifeBook B6000 bases on Intel Pentium M ULV 753 CPU (1.2GHz, 400MHz FSB, 2MB L2), has 512MB DDR2-400 and 40GB HDD (ATA 100, 4200rpm). Enhanced SpeedStep is supported, operation time is claimed to be 6 hours. B6000 also features a usual touchpad and works under Windows XP Professional Edition.
Other features of LifeBook B6000 include TPM (Trusted Platform Module) supporting security smartcards, optional biometric fingerprint sensor plus Fujitsu Security Application Panel software. B6000 also offers a modem, Gigabit Ethernet, optional Atheros Super AG (WLAN) and Bluetooth.
Such a configuration of LifeBook B6000 costs $1,650.
