auld_wyrm writes "You've probably read all sorts of headlines claiming that AMD is just about poised to purchase Ageia and lock nVIDIA out of easy access to physics processing. This will create some sort of three headed Intel killer than can produce General Purpose Graphics and Physics processing units, and shrink their dies, TDP and energy requirements and have water that looks totally realistic, all at the same time. Guess what; no GPGPPU for you,, at least not in the near future."Link to Original Source
auld_wyrm writes "It doesn't seem all that long ago that Intel's move from the P4 NetBurst architecture to the Core Architecture was what we were looking forward to, and now we are anticipating Intel's next major architecture shift to Nehalem. The move an integrated memory controller and new interconnect aren't gimmes though and Intel is going to have to prove the architecture can work and be accepted at the same level Core has been. As the other major player in the CPU world knows, better technology doesn't always equal better products.

auld_wyrm writes ""The only feature missing is support for DDR3 memory which several of the P35 motherboards we have tested use. There is no doubt that DDR3 will be faster than DDR2 at some point, but for now, the performance differences aren't very big but the price differences are! DDR3 is still very hard to find and when you do locate it, be prepared to pay a premium. So, maybe having the 680i chipset with DDR2 support isn't so bad after all.""Link to Original Source
