Amd Bulldozer (8 core cpu) Delayed

Originally scheduled for Q2 2011 the release date of the upcoming bulldozer cpu has been moved to late august. Some bad news for AMD because Intel's enthusiast extreme series X79 is supposed to release Q4 with tri-gate transistor technology.

For system builders needing a new system now I would recommend purchasing an am3+ motherboard with a cheap athlon processor the act as the placeholder until the bulldozer releases.

UEFI to replace BIOS

The Bios, a small old chip that in every computer is the first line of code your computer processes when it powers on. It detects what system hardware is active/ available and then loads the operating system.

The problem with the BIOS chip is that it it old, outdated, and inefficient. The BIOS will soon be replaced by another technology called UEFI which is a very quick alternative that will completely eliminate slow boot times and common post errors on PC's.

All in all its just another technology just like the harddrive that has been used for many years and is being replaced with better, faster hardware.

Wow! My phone has an 8MP camera, its almost as good as your 10MP cannon camera! That statement is completely false but many people don't know its not the megapixels. Its the size and quality of the CMOS sensor. While a phone may have a 8MP camera it probably has1/20'th of an inch CMOS sensor. And a camera may have a 1/8 or 1/4" cmos and have the same resolution and you can guess which one is going to have the higher image quality. Another factor is the quality of the CMOS sensor thats why there is competition between camera brand of course.
