The Fastest Quad Core Processor From Intel

Intel has advanced its enthusiast-level quad-core processor family with the introduction of the Intel Core 2 Extreme processor QX6800.

The company’s twelfth quad-core processor, QX6800, runs at 2.93 GHz – the fastest native clock speed yet reached.
Intel said that the new processor is ideal for those gamers, digital design professionals, and enthusiasts who crave the highest performing computers they can get their hands on.

At the recent Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco, several software developers demonstrated new games that have been “threaded” to take advantage of multiple processor cores and threads.


Intel believes that the increased performance of its new processor can help deliver smoother game play, more realistic game effects, and more life-like artificial intelligence.

Some of the most exciting titles of the year such as Crytek’s Crysis, Gas Powered Games’ Supreme Commander, and Flagship’s Hellgate London have undergone substantial joint engineering efforts to use more than two processing threads to their advantage.

In fact, one of the first games ever developed for the PC, “Flight Simulator X,” is also entering the quad-core era, and according to Intel, is a great match for extreme multi-core processing delivered by the new Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor.

The latest version of the game with service pack one (SP1) is due to be out later this month.

The Intel Core 2 Extreme processor QX6800 is based on Intel’s industry-leading 65 nanometer process, key to enabling the large 8 megabyte cache. A 1,066 MHz system bus is supported, and the processor is available now at a cost of $1,199

World's First Terabyte Disk Drive



There are many things in life you can’t ever have enough of; money, gadgets and of course hard drive space. In the ever going space race Hitachi dropped the next big step in storage capacity last month. With this much storage space you can store 250,000 songs or 1,000 hours of SDTV or 250 hours of HDTV or 333,300 photos or even 520 iTunes music store movies, of course they don’t have that many and if they did who could afford all of them?

Intel Joke

There was a gentleman walking with two heavy suitcases in an airport

terminal. Someone approached and asked him what time it was. The
gentleman

bends down to park the two heavy suitcases and stares at his watch. But

this was no ordinary watch! He touches a tiny button and his
administrative

assistant’s face appears.

He asks her, “Mary, what time is it?” Mary answers instantly and with a

smile!

The questioner is thoroughly impressed!!!

He asks, “What kind of a watch is that?”

“It’s like a TV with two-way real-time communication,” the gentleman

explains. He adds that the watch is the latest technology with Intel’s

brand new 128-bit chip with processor speed of 10 Gigahertz.

The onlooker is now quite impressed and wanted to know if he could buy
this

watch from the gentleman. They agree on a heavy price and the cash was

handed immediately. The gentleman takes his watch out and hands it over
and

then walks away.

The new owner stares at the two heavy suitcases and shouts, “Sir, you

forgot your suitcases.”

The gentleman stops, smiles, and replies, “No, they are yours now. They
are

the modems you always need to carry for your new watch.

USB cell

love innovation � who doesn’t? That said, my tastes lie specifically in the kind which make my life simpler and easier. We’re talking email over post, wireless over wired, LCD over CRT and potentially now ‘USBCELL’ batteries over your traditional AAs.
Released as a teaser to the IT press over a week ago with the tagline ‘Time to recharge the battery market’, the details are finally out and they are oh so logical yet very cool.


Produced by Moixa Energy, USBCELL batteries are simply batteries that recharge from any USB port. They require no separate recharging devices, cradles or cables and can be used exactly like a normal battery. The design itself is rather like a typical memory stick with its flip top lid and they could be set to deliver the same killer blow to the battery market that memory sticks did to floppy discs.


At this stage the one unknown is how well they perform when compared to their established counterparts and how long they take to charge. The new wave is coming however and though they launch in the familiar AA they will soon comprise a full range of standard formats including phone and camera batteries and come with C & D size converters.

Available now and costing just �12.99 for two AA USBCELL batteries (including VAT and delivery from the company’s website) I’m forced to say something I never thought would pass my lips: I’m quite excited about batteries :S
Update:
USBCELL batteries have a capacity of 1300mAH which is in line with most NiCd and NiMH batteries though some do go all the way up to 2500mAH. It takes five hours to charge a completely flat battery and an LED on the side will light up to indicate charging, flash for 10 minutes after charging is complete as an alert and switch off after that.

What gender is computer ?? ;D

A French teacher was explaining to her college class that in French, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. House is feminine ?la maison.? Pencil is masculine ?le crayon.?

A student asked, ?What gender is computer ??
Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups male and female – and asked them to decide for themselves whether ?computer? should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for their recommendation.

The men?s group decided that ?computer? should definitely be of the feminine gender (la computer) because:
1.. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
2.. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else; 3.. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later review; and
4.. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay cheque on accessories for it.

The women?s group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine le computer) because:
1.. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
2.. They have a lot of data but still can?t think for themselves;
3.. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and
4.. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

You decide what it should be….
