The guru of 3D has a review of the AMD 4000+. It's a big ole 11 page article chocked full of benchmarks and diagrams, but let's cut to the chase: The Verdict!
Dell Computer has reached agreement with 31 workers at its Nashville factory who left the firm after a disagreement over evening prayers.

Although, AMD chip retains the speed crown.
AMD today announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded AMD's Cool'n'Quiet(TM) technology with an ENERGY STAR(R) Certificate of Recognition for advancing computer energy efficiency. All AMD Athlon(TM) 64 desktop processors have the innovative Cool'n'Quiet technology, a system-level feature that lowers the power consumption of a computer whenever maximum performance is not needed. AMD received the certificate on March 15 in conjunction with the 2005 ENERGY STAR Awards Ceremony in Washington, D.C.
NVIDIA'S NEXT generation graphic remains a well protected secret. We still managed to get some information about it, despite that. We confirmed that G70 is the real thing and we learned that Nvidia has one more chip down the road codenamed the G80.
In rural Cambodian villages with no electricity, nighttime darkness is pierced by the glow from laptop computers that children bring home from school.
The kids belong to three schools that Nicholas Negroponte of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has equipped with inexpensive notebook computers.
"When the kids bring them home and open them up, it's the brightest light source in the home."
lol Piotke's review of Cebit is a little different than most all the others', in that his is a visual tour consisting solely of pictures. Not the same boring ole hardware for Piotke, no. He had a better time than most I would say!

GAINWARD MADE some noises about its two 6800 Ultra PCIe cards connected with a single water cooler and [theinquirer] managed to grab a picture of it.
"The computers that brought Gollum, the Balrog and Middle Earth to life are now available to work for hire.

The cluster of 1,008 computers in New Zealand can now be hired on a per hour, per processor basis."
"ENTHUSIAST website Xtremesystems has yet another exclusive after the Athlon 4200+, with a photo of an Asus card featuring two Dual Geforce 6800 Ultra on a huge blue PCB. It's not known whether the card will actually be shipped or if it is a demonstration card."
"A few years ago when companies began introducing their pre-modded computer cases, it is safe to say that the majority of the enthusiast community was quite excited to see something unique being brought to the market. These new cases were aimed at the person that did not possess the skills or have the time required to perform tedious case mods. Up until that point, all computer users had available were basic, bland beige (or similar "colored") cases to store their precious system components. These new cases brought along some attractive and interesting concepts and designs. Aluminum, instead of steel, and high quality construction became the norm. Gradually these wonderful designs began to change. Either the market became flooded with hundreds of pre-modded cases or the manufacturers started taking advantage of the community and began producing rather shameful, mostly steel cases, wrapped in monstrous looking plastic shells."
