Good reads from around the web

I will start off with Ars' first installment on their '[URL=http://arstechnica.com/paedia/c/cpu/part-1/cpu1-1.html]Understanding the Microprocessor[/URL]' series, I haven't read the whole thing myself yet as I haven't had enough time but expect the usual quality stuff from Ars.

Hard Drive performance should be taken very seriously. TR has posted an IDE RAID [URL=http://www.tech-report.com/reviews/2002q4/ideraid/index.x?pg=1]round-up[/URL] which also gives you a general idea on how you could make your data more reliable and at the same time get faster access times. [URL=http://www.xbitlabs.com/storage/ide-scsi/]x-bit[/URL] has a similar article in which they compare IDE RAID setups to SCSI products... hmmm... 15,000 RPM!
While we are at it, a deserved mention to Vehementi, one of our forum regulars, who posted his take on WD's Special Edition 120GB HDD [URL=http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=3407]here[/URL] on the boards.

Continuing with the articles galore, Anandtech has a comprehensive [URL=http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.html?i=1759]round-up[/URL] of nForce 2 motherboards most of which are already available in retail shelves, you can check [URL=http://techspot.pricegrabber.com/search_gen.php/form_keyword=nforce%25202/topcat_id=1]prices here[/URL].

Ace's Hardware also has a couple of good reads this week, the first is another put-your-a$$-in-the-know kind of article talking about [URL=http://www.aceshardware.com/read.jsp?id=50000316]Mainframes[/URL]. Also a quick look to Apple's newest G4 PC is available [URL=http://www.aceshardware.com/read.jsp?id=50000333]here[/URL].
