I am sitting in my hotel room in downtown San Francisco ready for the upcoming spring 2005 IDF show at the Moscone Center. Intel is planning on showing off their plans for multi-core processors (notice they are NOT calling it dual-core any more...) as well as their partnership with NVIDIA in the form of the nForce4 for Intel chipset that is going to be announced very soon. I'll post more on the show as I get it, keep a close watch on the front page for any breaking news I post from the floor!

If you have been following the site at all this year, you'll have noticed that since the last day in January, my name has not been attached to any articles. My sincere thanks go to Jon and Lee for keeping some fresh content on PC Perspective. Of course, this is not to say I haven't been working at all in these past two weeks, just that it isn't "overt" work that I am doing. The grunt work that needs doing is getting done, and thanks to Joe, very soon we should have that new design I promised a couple months back. I am really looking forward to it.

While hunting around on various websites today, doing the usual product searches, I came across quite a few interesting little bits of info that I wanted to share this afternoon.  First up, it would appear that I have found the first X800 PCI Express card available, from PowerColor.  Listed here on our shopping page, the card is going for $389 and slightly higher.  This is the fi

With both holidays and this years CES show under my belt, its time to move on and start back to the regular old, day to day kind of work at PC Perspective. That means reviews and articles all kinds of fun things for you guys to read and participate in.

Speaking of participation, I almost on the verge of opening up a vote for PCP's Reader Awards of 2004. What do you all think of the idea of having forum readers vote on subjects like the best chipest and video card of 2004?

Time to start getting ready for the holidays

If you haven't read my NVIDIA PureVideo article yet, it will probably interest you if you find video image quality important at all. The new driver (publically available soon) will actually enable that video processor that exists in all the 6-series graphics cards from NVIDIA, with the exception of the WMV9 hardware decode that is still broken on the NV40 and NV45 chips.

I was interesting for me to delve into the world of high defintion DVD and all the different standards that are fighting for dominance.

I know many of you may think I should remain impartial and thus keep PC Perspective that way as well, but with the race this close, I just couldn't do that.  I would like you all to read my latest weblog entry, even if you are against what it has to say.  Thank you.

And no matter what, go out and vote...

No, this isn't exactly news, but I figured I would throw a link to my lastest weblog entry out to you all in case you hadn't checked it in a while (as if you did before) because I took so long to update it.  :)


It has personal junk as well as work related info it, so maybe you'll find it worth your while to read... 


Have a great week!

As you might have figured from the link I posted in my last Inside Perspective, I'm spending a bit of spare time shootin' the breeze with some fellow book lovers. One of the things they do is highlight a book of the month that everyone can read "together" and comment on. So, in an effort to get in the spirit of things, I decided to tackle the book of the month (well actually in this particular case it's months) for May and June.


The highlighted book this time around is War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. Now, mind you, I knew it was big, but I had no idea just how big.

As the words were coming out of my mouth this afternoon, I knew I was going to be in trouble. Some of us were talking about car problems in the office today and I just HAD to speak up and confirm someone's comment that Dodges tend to break down.

Not only did I have to agree with her, but I also had to add in my own two cents worth and tell them that my '93 Mustang was in the shop less than his '98 Dodge Stratus was. The Stratus must have overheard me. 


I get out to the car, start it up, crank up the AC and feel nothing but hot air blowing out the vents.

Welcome to the Inside Perspective!

[vent mode]

At work, one of my team's daily duties is to go through the incoming mail and get checks ready for processing. Many of these checks come to us in business reply envelops that we provide as a service to our customers.

Today, I opened one such envelope and was left shaking my head in bafflement and disgust. Someone had used our business reply envelope, which of course we have to pay postage for, to send us a religious tract. Hello?!?!?!?
