Subject: General Tech | January 9, 2007 - 12:25 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
The Tech Report has developed a split personality. While looking at what is coming up for 2007 at CES they are also looking back at 2006. Read on to revisit some of the defining technology from 2006, and some of the worst flops as well.
"ANOTHER YEAR HAS COME AND GONE, leaving a trail of phenomenal new hardware, disturbing and annoying trends, and disappointing
flops and no-shows in its wake. All told, 2006 was a great year for PC enthusiasts, and a very busy one for us. An almost
endless stream of new hardware passed through our labs, and most of it was pretty good. We also got to see dual-core processors
really come into their own, Intel bounce back from the horrendous NetBurst era, and Nvidia shock the world with a unified
shader architecture. Somewhere in the middle of all that, AMD surprised everyone by acquiring ATI."
