Processors

Yet another overclocking milestone has been passed by Intel‘s Pentium 4 microprocessor and Team Akiba that consists of two world’s top overclockers – macci and The Stilt. Using a modified ASUS P5P800 mainboard along with Intel Pentium 4 560 processor on Prescott core, the specialists known for their extreme overclocking experiences achieved unbelievable 6.009GHz speed. Check out the details on XtremeSystems.org forum.

Memory

GruntvillE.com has reviewed PQI’s latest PC3200 DDR memory kit. PQI’s PQI3200-1024DPU dual-channel memory module kit can sport aggressive, CL2 2-2-5, latency settings, elegant and efficient heat-spreaders as well as traditionally low price. The “DP” stands for Dual-channel copper Platinum as for the “U” – Ultra low latency.

Overclocker Caf? has issued an article about how much speed can be squeezed out of DDR2 memory using a brand new mainboard built for overclocking. Corsair's 1GB PC2 5400 Pro DDR2 memory module kit was taken for the tests along with ASUS P5AD2 Deluxe mainboard.

Graphics cards

Hardwarezoom.com has reviewed Gigabyte GV-R80P256V/D graphics card. This high-end offering from Gigabyte is based on reference design of the RADEON X800 PRO from ATI, but with better cooling for the GDDR3 memory chips as well as impressive software and gaming bundle.

TV tuners

TrustedReviews has posted an article about Leadtek WinFast PVR2000 TV tuner. The PVR2000 has a built-in hardware MPEG2 Encoder which takes significant strain off the CPU and can capture in MPEG1, MPEG2, VCD and DVD formats, as well as burn everything directly to a DVD. There is also the ability to pause, rewind and record live TV. FM radio support with stereo audio and auto tuning. It can also be recorded and saved to MP3 and WMA formats.

Multimedia

PC Perspective has taken a look at the Altec Lansing MX5021 audio system that boasts with THX certification and consequent vivid and clear sound even on the high volume levels. Besides, since the system is 2.1, there will be far less cables than with a 5.1 system, but the web-site promises that you would still be impressed with the sound quality.

ExtremeTech has posted a roundup of external audio adapters. For a number of reasons such as electromagnetic interference (EMI) and noisy DC circuits, a PC mainboard can be a very hostile place for audio chips and adapters. If you are looking for something to improve your laptop’s underachieving audio subsystem read on and find the specific details about eight different external audio adapters.

Pointing devices

Logitech in association with its partner Agilent Technologies, who invented the optical sensor, have developed the world’s first laser mouse. Tom’s Hardware Guide has reviewed Logitech’s newest and latest MX1000 pointing device, which is the first one to implement the technology. But will laser eventually render traditional optical mice obsolete?

About the 6GHz P4, I don't understand something (I don't have an account on that site, and wouldn't feel right opening an account just for one post). It's a P4 560 (3.6GHz, LGA775), running in a v-modded "P5P800" board. I'm sure that "P5P800" should be "P4P800," as I don't believe Asus makes a P5P800. If this is correct, especially based on the statement that it's AGP, not PEG, then how did they drop an LGA775 proc into an S478 socket/motherboard? Asus' P4P800 boards are S478, and predominantly i865PE.
