The intent of these wide, sweeping changes is clear: to inflict as much pain on the industry as possible in the shortest time window.
What I meant to say was that Intel clearly intends to clean up the last vestiges of the circa-1990s PC platform at once, weeding out weaknesses and pulling open bottlenecks. We've tested the whole shebang, from the Intel 915 and 925X Express chipsets to new processors including the Pentium 4 model 560 at 3.6GHz. We've tested PCI Express graphics cards from ATI and NVIDIA, and we've benchmarked Maxtor's impressive new MaXLine III Serial ATA hard drives with support for Native Command Queuing. Read on to learn more about what each of these changes means for you and to see how this first wave of next-generation PC hardware performs.
