1/13/2002: Pentium 0,13 microns 4, in the hunting for the Athlon XP

    There begin coming to the shops the first units of the new Pentium 4 with nucleus Northwood, that is to say, made with 0,13 micron s technology and with the double of cache memory L2 (512 KB).
    They use like connector the Socket 478, and exist in speeds of 2,2 GHz and 2,0 GHz; the last one is named "Pentium 4 2.0 A", to separate it from the previous model with 0,18 microns nucleus, which exists so much in format Socket 478 as Socket 423. The prices, 562 $ and 364 $, respectively.
    The manufacture in 0,13 microns technology reduces perceptibly the electrical consumption and the heat generation for the mike, allows to reach major speeds (in GHz) with more facility and, of course, it reduces the size of the nucleus of the mike, being therefore cheaper of making of big quantities. Undoubtedly a big step passes of Intel, which has seen how in the last two years AMD was obtaining an almost unthinkable market share in other times, thanks to his Duron, Athlon and Athlon XP (all of 0,18 microns).
    It is very significant the fact that the microprocessors Athlon are, to GHz equality, much more rapid than the Pentium 4. Nevertheless, to convince in this reality the user, AMD has had to resort to a denomination of "equivalent yield": this way, the recent Athlon XP 2000 + works to 1,67 GHz, but it gives good results (at least) so much like a Pentium 4 of 2 GHz.
    This nomenclature has been received well because AMD has been very conservative on having done the "equivalence", but the true thing is that from now on Intel will be able to raise quickly the brute force (the GHz) of his Pentium 4, therefore AMD will have to accelerate its own transition to 0:13 microns. The struggle warms up...: moreover!!

1/10/2002: New and IMPRESSIVE Apple iMac, and also...
The new iMac - Source: Apple Computer, Inc., www.apple.com
    The new iMac are much more than an iMac with screen TFT. First of all, we must point out that the screens TFT of Apple (we do not know who makes them) are of the best of the market for refreshment, contrast and definition, what notices if we have to use to minors resolutions of "face-value". Secondly, let's indicate the characteristics:
     - Screen 15 inches TFT with a resolution of 1024x768.
     - Processor G4 to 700 or 800 MHz (ultrapowerful, eye!!).
     - Graphic card NVIDIA GeForce2 MX with 32 MB of DDR.
     - Unit CD-RW (retape recorder of CDs), or comboDVD-ROM/CD-RW, that a DVD breeding animal combines with a rerecording CDs unit, or a unit SuperDrive that allows to record both CDs and DVD-R, almost not at all.
     - 40 ó 60 hard disk GB.
     - 128 ó 256 MB of memory SDRAM, extendable to 1 GB.
     - Connectors for almost any thing: 3 ports USB, 2 FireWire, Mini-VGA, earphones, network Ethernet 10/100 and modem 56 K.
     - Mac OS X, since it could not be less, in addition to a finished catalog of Software and option of card of wireless network IEEE 802.11b AirPort.
     - And all this in only 27 cm in diameter (without counting the breadth of the screen, skylight). To see it to believe it.
    The price: does it matter for anybody? Well, the average model (with bent DVD-ROM/CD-RW) should go out to the Spanish market with a price lower than the 1800 €. In the USA, the most powerful standard model (800 MHz, 256 MB, 60 GB and SuperDrive) costs scarcely 1799 $, a really reasonable price.
    But good, Apple did not have enough, so it has provided his portable iBook of a bigger screen, existing now the options of screen of 12 ó 14 inches (both of 1024x768). More options for the users and it excuses one less for those that saw this too small screen for a habitual use.
