Op het BBS van Ace's Hardware staat een leuke thread die gehakt maakt van de PIII / K7 benchmarks die The Register twee dagen geleden gepost heeft. Check dit:
> I'm a hardware research engineer from Acer Inc. (Singapore)
Do we have any proof of this? No.
> K7 test machines CPU K7 600MHz (FSB 200MHz x 3.0) 600MHz 128KB L1 Cache
> 2-way associative 200MHz 512KB L2 Cache 4-way associative EV6 BUS
> Controller L2 Cache Speed 1/3 FSB
Everyone on this message board has mentioned this part spec dozens of times, this could easily be expected.
>RAM TI Direct RDRAM 256MB at 600MHz
I believe Intel RDRAM spec is twin concurrent 16bit busses at 800mhz, not 600mhz. This would support the claims of 3.2GB/sec and multiples thereof with interleaving. Also, Sony has speced their PSX2 as having an 800mhz RDRAM bus. Nintendo RDRAM runs at 433mhz. I don't know of anyone making 600mhz rdram because nobody apparently intends to use it. I believe this is fake.
> Matrox Millennium G400MAX 32MB SGRAM 360MHz RAMDAC Resolution 1600x1200 32
> Bpp 85Hz
The card's been announced, everyone who read the press release saw it and full specs.
> Harddisk IBM Ultra3 SCSI 6ms 10.0 GB
Nobody makes a SCSI HD in 10.0GB. They're all multiples of 2.255GB. 4.55, 9.1, 18.2, 36.4 are all currently shipping capacities. I don't believe IBM has shown a U3W prototype yet, only Quantum has that I'm aware of. Also, there is no controller listed in this spec, and I haven't yet seen any manufacturer talking about and upcoming U3W controller for anytime this year. Not believable.
En zo gaat het nog even door. Zie deze thread bij Ace's Hardware voor de complete info.
