3DMark 03 Interview

Published by [NT] 2

NordicHardware has had the chance to ask Futuremark a couple of questions about their upcoming benchmark 3DMark03. [NH]: There has been some complaints that the CPU, RAM and MOBO influenced the scores too much, is this any different in the 03 version?
[FM]: As we have focused even more heavily on the Shaders in 3DMark®03, the graphics card is more of a bottleneck than it was in 2000 and 2001. 3DMark®03 comes with a separate CPU test for more in-depth CPU benchmarking. Read all about it here: www.nordichardware.se

Plus!DME Has Been Cracked

Saw this on Neowin: "A group called 'Holics Project' have cracked Plus! Digital Media Edition's WPA (Windows Product Activation).
The "crack" works as long as you don't have DME installed and any previous Plus! packs installed. The crack itself consists of just a registry file which is run before "Activation"." I can imagine some programmer @ Microsoft saying Oops.

S3 DeltaChrome To Outperform The Competition?

Published by [PM] 6

As reported by TheInq: VIA's graphic arm, S3, launched the Delta Chrome chip, formerly codenamed Columbia, we have tried to dig out some new information about it, and now we have some. The chip will be clocked at 300MHz+ for the graphics processor and 300MHz+ for memory, and will use plain DDR. The second version of the card will work on 240MHz+ for the graphics engine and 300MHz+ for memory. Sounds a bit ridiculous for a $90 circuitry and 20.000 3DMarks. We'll see.

What Would You Like To See In 3DMark03?

I was just over @ 3dchipset.com and I see Solomon has a new post up asking the question What would you like to see in 3DMark03 ? Well I would like to see them add some sort of speed read out of your card! What about YOU?

Solomon: As the subject implies. What would you like to see added in the newest incarnation of Futuremarks benchmark program. For me? I would like to see some sort of timing feature included in all results. Wouldn't it be interesting to see how long a system can seriously run the program before it locks up your computer.

FireWire 2 - Hitting 800 Mbps?

Published by [NT] 1

"SAN FRANCISCO - Apple may be planning to announce FireWire 2, or FireWire 800, a new high-speed 800-megabits-per-second FireWire standard, at the Macworld Conference & Expo opening here Tuesday.
The hint surfaced when hard-drive vendor SmartDisk - several hours after announcing its introduction of desktop drives that connect to Apple systems using the new 800-mbps FireWire standard - asked that the news be "killed due to premature release."
The aborted news suggests what Steve Jobs, chief executive officer of Apple, may be announcing in his keynote speech at Macworld Expo Tuesday." Do MAC users really need this speed? Why can't Steve Jobs think of speed = the CPU speed, compatibility, and stuff like that? Well I don't really care, cause I wouldn't use a MAC anyway. For the full read warp 2 ... www.pcworld.com.

The Inquirer Says 'ATI's R350, RV350 Ala Radeon 9900 Pro Taped Out @ TSMC'

If I like to read rumours, these are the ones I like to read: THE INQUIRER has received several tips recently regarding ATI's R350 and RV350. The first reiterates that ATI's R350 is being built on a 0.15 micron process. ATI's RV350 mainstream part is however being built on a 0.13 micron process. What is new is that both the R350 and the RV350 have already taped out with their production partner TSMC, which did not do quite as good a job with their friend Nvidia.

Stomped.com Closes Its Doors!

Published by [NT] 1

Saw it just over @ The Tech Report that the next great site is about to close its doors. It's hard to believe, but the home of a huge chunk of the "Quake community" since the very beginnings is closing up shop. According to this report at the Shack, Stomped.com is closing up for good. It's the same old story:
As the revenue dried up we had to cut costs which meant letting more people go. With you, Aurora and Redwood being let go, our readership pretty much dried up. It has reached the point where it really isn't worth while keeping the site active. We still have equipment we have to maintain and rack fees for our co-host. I kept the site up probably longer than I should have from a business standpoint, but its reached its limit. I am very sad to see all these websites dying.
I wish the complete team from Stomped luck for the future. You were one of my favourite site!
