This is good news for AMD fans, its 65nm
manufacturing is going well. ATi's R580+ supports GDDR4,
whether videocards will use this memory standard is not known though. Dell will
equipped systems for the Christmas season. Heh sneaky behaviour from Intel,
who would have thought... Anyway its instant on/off feature of VIIV
is in question.
So what you have is Intel claiming that it shuts down the computer, but
it does not, will not, and was never planned to. If you hit that instant off
feature, the machine sits there spinning away at full tilt, or nearly so, sucking
down electricity 24 hours by seven. It should be ashamed of itself, needlessly
wasting resources and covering it up.
