I love the heat at the beginning of the year!

Finally, winter has come. The time has come when it is necessary to seriously think about cooling computers. In magazines, the topic of computer cooling is raised, as a rule, every spring. The logic is simple: users get hot, and they begin to think primarily not about themselves, but about their best friend. But in fact, the need for cooling the computer is weakly dependent on the time of year. Continue reading

Hope Small Orchestra Running DV

In recent years, a person interested in editing video on a personal computer has been hit by a real avalanche of information. But more recently, it was collected bit by bit and many technologies, including the simplest ones, had to be mastered blindly. But in the world of information technology, things are changing very quickly. Opportunities previously unavailable to the ordinary user and information about them are available to everyone today. Almost everyone who owns a personal computer (PC) and video camera can try their hand at video production (even in creating the simplest home movie). Continue reading

What is a model number?
Before comparing with competing processors, let's look at the performance of Athlon XP processors with different CPUIDs. The model number is simply the number of a specific model in the…
