AMD CPUs fastest for Half-Life 2

Thursday, November 25th, 2004


Xbit labs ran
benchmarks
measuring CPU speed in Half Life 2 demos.
AMD CPUs came out ahead overall.

I find it somewhat staggering that the slowest CPUs were “3000” series (i.e. as fast as a 3 GHz P4).
Ye gads.

Hybrids

Friday, November 19th, 2004

This isn’t really all that tech, but a lot of new Hybrid vehicles (Electric + gasoline) are hitting the market. The Ford Escape SUV seems pretty good and I test drove one, but the Toyota Highlander with 270H.P. (est.) that will be launched sometime around May looks like it might be the new standard to beat.
