Stages of a Long Way: Mass Intel and AMD Processors in 2001
Intel Celeron is finally moving to the 100 MHz system bus. On January 3, the first CPU of this lineup came out - the 800-MHz version (multiplication factor - 8x).…

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part3)
We were very happy and proud; you know, young engineers with their own hands were able to make the first “flip” chip. After some discussion between Gordon and Andy, Gordon…

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part2)
This type of memory was made in the form of a two-dimensional matrix of conductors, at the intersection of which a thin jumper (20-30 μm) was created from metal or…

Warm company

A processor is not the only heat source in a computer. But the most solid of them. Therefore, special attention is paid to him. But modern video cards also have a specialized processor on board. He is also warming. And “overclock” video cards even more often than the central processor.

The first video cards with 3D accelerators caused us a lot of trouble with their “hot temperament”. Some video cards could work normally only the first 10 … 20 minutes after switching on. Continue reading

What is Athlon 64?

First of all, it must be emphasized that in the AMD64 architecture, the main attention was paid to the issue of compatibility with 32-bit applications that are widespread now. The new processors are fully compatible with 32-bit (generally speaking, even with 16-bit) applications. Compatibility is achieved due to the fact that the AMD64 architecture is an extension of the x86 architecture. The registers existing in the x86 architecture are expanded to 64 bits, while the lower 32 bits of each register can be used by 32 bit applications in the same way as in the x86 architecture: Continue reading

How to avoid network downtime?
Since then, no surprises have occurred with Novell products to solve the high availability of network resources. Naturally, Novell ceased to support its once-very popular NetWare 3.x product, since over…
