AMD to Launch Radeon HD4890 in April
Submitted by PCGamer 2130 days ago on Hardware
tagged as hot 2130 days ago
AMD is slated to launch the Radeon HD4890 card, based on the RV790 core, in April. Earlier rumours that this card would be called the HD4970 appear to have been incorrect. The RV790XT A11 sample has a clockspeed of 850Mhz and a operating voltage of 1.3V. It will likely be paired with 975Mhz GDDR5 memory. By comparision, the current Radeon HD4870 (RV770) model runs at 750MHz core clock and 900MHz memory clock. Read more.... Update: We have just been informed by CJ that there will be 2 versions of the Radeon HD4890 - a standard edition and a OC edition. The standard edition will launch in mid April, with the OC Edition following shortly after by end of April. The Radeon HD 4890 OC Edition has 1GB of GDDR5 memory onboard and is expected to perform 25-30% faster than HD 4870. It is expected to be priced at USD299 at launch.

Windows 7 should be out for Christmas
Submitted by PCGamer 2130 days ago on Hardware
tagged as hot 2130 days ago
Microsoft has given its strongest hint yet that Windows 7 will be in the shops by Christmas. The company confirmed in a webcast today that Windows 7 will be released to manufacturing (RTM) three years after the RTM version of Vista was released. Vista went RTM in October 2006. Advertisement "The goal for Windows 7 RTM is to be three years after Windows Vista RTM," said the company in response to a question. The webcast, hosted by Microsoft technical fellow Mark Russinovich, went over some of the new features of the forthcoming operating system. These include better power management, a reduced processor footprint and better applications control. "We spent a ton of time on battery time," said Russinovich, claiming that Microsoft had reduced the power footprint of over 400 parts of the operating system, and is still making more improvements. These include managing power but still ensuring speedy performance. "Performance was a huge problem with Vista," said Mark Manasse, principal researcher at Microsoft Research. "But I was pleasantly surprised. I've run it on bespoke and virtual systems and am very impressed by the way it runs." The new operating system will also have a Power Configuration function, which scans the machine in a minute and then lists recommendations for cutting power output. Microsoft has spent a lot of time trying to avoid the compatibility problems that dogged people moving from XP to Vista. "When we sat down in one of the open meetings at the start of the project we came up with certain goals," said Erik Lustig, a senior product manager responsible for Windows Fundamentals "If it worked with Vista it should work with Windows 7, and if it runs Vista it should run Windows 7 faster."

Submitted by x8xid 2154 days ago on Hardware
tagged as hot 2150 days ago
Over the past nine quarters, there has been a lot of talk from AMD's Hector Ruiz about a "return to profitability" that's always just around the bend, but talk is all it is. In spite of AMD's efforts, the profitability never materializes, and this past quarter was no different.

Feeling squeeze, Intel closes
Submitted by x8xid 2154 days ago on Hardware
tagged as hot 2150 days ago
Following a grim earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2008, Intel has announced plans to shutter two test and assembly plants, one in the Philippines and one in Malaysia. The chipmaker will also halt production at five older fabs, while focusing most of its production efforts on its existing 45nm lines and its 32nm ramp-up. These actions will result in some 5,000 to 6,000 lost jobs....

tagged as hot 2150 days ago
If you've been having trouble joining domains when using Windows 7 beta or Windows Server 2008 R2 beta, this update is for you. Microsoft has detailed (KB article 961402) a problem with both beta operating systems trying to join domain names by using the System Properties user interface, the Netdom.exe command, an unattended setup, the Djoin.exe command, or when trying to use the Active Directory Installation Wizard (Dcpromo.exe) to install Active Directory Domain Services on a member server. . . .

Belkin's black eye: caught paying for user reviews
Submitted by x8xid 2154 days ago on Hardware
tagged as hot 2150 days ago
The Internet may have given everyone a voice, but that also means that anyone can have a voice... and it can be hard to figure out who is worth listening to when looking at product reviews. Belkin hasn't made that process any easier, as the company has been caught buying positive reviews for its routers. The price for a positive review? Under a dollar, and you better be calling "legit" reviews unhelpful before you ask for your paycheck. . . .

Windows Vista Service Pack 1: A performance check
Submitted by Hades-LotD 2450 days ago on Hardware
tagged as hot 2448 days ago
The story of Windows Vista is one fraught with tragedy (at least, as tragic as software can get). The operating system had a difficult birth, with Microsoft scrapping its work and starting over again about half-way through the development cycle, shedding many promised features in the process. Once out in the market, Vista had an even rougher childhood. Drivers weren't ready in time, users perceived Vista as nothing more than a more resource-hungry version of XP with a prettier user interface, and many reviewers gave it a thumbs down.
