VIA weren't to happy when Intel said that they were not allowed a Pentium4 bus license. So VIA want it there own way and will be producing a new CPU codenamed 'CZA', it will use a 18-stage pipeline based on a 0.10 micron core and it will start at 2GHz. With the processor based on P4-style architecture it will not be a replacement for the C3 family of x86 processors as the chip ill not be out until 2003-2004.

3D power are to wet the hard-core gamers appetite with a water-cooled retail version of the Geforce 3 Ti500. We hope to get more of the specs as soon as we can as this will be the first ever retail watercooled card. If it is as good as the Mopheous card is then we are all in for some nice overclocking.

Yesterday Intel pushed the celeron all the way to 1.2Ghz based on the 0.13 micron core just one day after AMD released the Duron 1.1Ghz which is based on the Morgan core and now supports SSE instructions. Is intel just trying to stay ahead in the numbers race or are the really improving the chips as they go along? Well the new Celeron now has 256K level2 on-chip cache and also has a high-bandwidth interface with the core. The new celeron is looking good but lets wait and see how it performs, but if you want to be one of the first to have one it will set you back $103.
