I hope everybody had a great day. Tom's Hardware continues their Intel roadmap coverage with news about future mobile and server/workstation products. The DDR platform release is imminent as Hardware Central takes an early look at the Micron Samurai DDR mobo. Not to be outdone, ALi plans on showcasing DDR 266 chipsets at World PC Expo (link courtesy of NeWs dAwG).

MSNBC and Yahoo are both reporting that 3dfx received favorable rulings in patent litigation suits against nVIDIA (thanks to TR reader Aaron for sending in the MSNBC article).
