Earlier this morning, NVIDIA publicly unveiled their new 7800 GTX (G70) GPU for immediate availability. Some of its features include CineFX 4.0, eight vertex processing units, improvements in the pixel-shader, and improved anti-aliasing. In addition, the NVIDIA G70 now uses an 110nm @ TSMC process, 80 million more transistors than the GeForce 6800, and runs at a 430MHz core / 600MHz GDDR3 clock speed. We will be bringing numerous 7800 GTX Linux reviews as the week's progress.

Earlier in the day ATI released their new Catalyst 5.6 drivers. These new Windows drivers offer such new features as mobile support, an improved Catalyst Control Center (CCC), re-vamped Catalyst AI for gamers, and several other intuitive features. However, we wouldn’t be bringing you this article if there wasn’t anything to share about the Linux side of things. Today we have a look at the entirely new ATI Linux driver installer and ATI Control Panel.

It is a professional 64 bit Dream machine with supersonic speed! It is beautiful. It is about the ultimate user friendliness. It is about a lifestyle. It is a class apart. You guessed it - I am parroting Apple’s marketing.

For some reason, the performance of Apple’s gorgeous machines has been wrapped in a shroud of mystery. Yes, you could find a benchmark here and there, with one benchmark showing that the PowerMac is just a mediocre PC while another shows it off as a supercomputer, the unchallenged king of the personal computer world.

?Last month we took our first look at dual-core processors in the form of AMD's Opteron processors. While those processors are targeted at servers and workstations, AMD still had dual-core desktop parts to deliver. Today we bring you the first look at dual-core Athlon 64 parts, dubbed Athlon 64 X2, under Linux. We'll run through the numbers as usual but also throw in a mix of information on support, stability, cost, availability, and a few other key points on these new chips. Will dual-core on the desktop make you run out and buy a new processor?

The wildly popular Debian-based Ubuntu Linux distribution released its newest version, code-named Hoary Hedgehog, today. But Debian's own offering, code-named Sarge, remains on the sidelines.

"In an article published in IT Week, Roger Howorth discussed lab results that indicated how the latest version of the open-source Samba file and print server software out-performed commercial Windows 2003 Server. The latest version of Samba, the software that helped put Linux on the technology map, has new features that make it compatible with Microsoft Active Directory. Linux thus can authenticate users from an existing Active Directory..."

Samba beats Windows

Samba 3 runs rings around Windows Server 2003 in file serving performance
Roger Howorth, IT Week

Tests by IT Week Labs show the latest version of the open-source Samba file and print server software is 2.5 times faster than Windows Server 2003 in the same role.

The news comes as many firms are grappling with the consequences of Microsoft ending support for NT4, coupled with uncertainty about when Microsoft will next update Windows. The performance difference between Windows Server 2003 and Samba 3 has increased dramatically compared with Samba 2 and Windows 2000 Server.
