wtf on the GPU section!? Is that just a review of 6800-series card? No "predictions" whatsoever.. People too lazy during holidays, what's up??!

I do hope Fusion has some reasonable gaming performance so I can have a gaming laptop that can handle some EQII and a few Steam titles on the go. I am tired of seeing all the best mobile GPUs paired up with mainly Intel chips.

Also, faster Powerline Networking would be great. To no longer need to use wireless networking to have internet anywhere in the house is a great idea.

I almost fell off my chair when I read this in the magazine: "When it ships, Velocity Micro's Cruz tablet should have a Tegra 2 CPU." 


Seriously, there has never been any indication or rumor that Velocity Micro was going to use a dual processor.  The best that anyone could have hoped was maybe an ARM11.  But no, they went cheap and got an Ingenic MIPS processor.  Think my 4 year MP3 player has a better processor.

There are numerous reports of Velocity Micro going with Tegra 2. Here are just three:

 Hard drives will be transitioning to 4K sectors (advanced format) from the current 512 byte. there will be some teething pains too as Windows XP and all the old cloning programs will not align the sectors properly...

 BTW, I bet tht would make a good article! Heh.

Regarding 4K, its not happening as fast as I WANT it to. If it did, consoles would have to be replaced, and the stagnation that consoles have created will go away and PC gamers can finally use all that horsepower. But it looks like the 4K date is pretty much the same as the console refresh the big 3 are all planning around. *sigh*

I see Intel's looking at a 22nm fabrication process. What happens when we reach 0nm fab?

than processors will be constructed atom by atom, and the cpu will float around your brain.
