  • Welcome back to another edition of Forum Spotlight. This has been one of the busiest weeks we've ever had here at SharkyExtreme - from video cards to CPU roadmaps to MP3 players, we've pretty much run the gamut this week. There has been surprisingly little reaction in the forums to the Playstation2 launch earlier this week, but then again, if I were one of the lucky ones to receive one, I'd probably be smack on my rear playing with the thing rather than posting rambling thoughts on it. If you weren't so lucky, you could always speculate on how much faster your next DDR-equipped Athlon system will perform in comparison to the overly-hyped console. Wait...did he say DDR? Stay tuned for more information. We'd spill the beans right here and now, but then we'd have to kill you.

    Until then, feel free to discuss whatever is on your mind over at SharkyForums.com. Each week we take several of the most popular/insightful/controversial threads and present them to you for easy digestion. Feel free to jump in at any time (it's kind of like jump rope, in a way) and discuss, as we've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! Why would you want to do such a thing? Well, if your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week. Without further ado...

    Rambus Technology
    For those of you who aren't particularly clear on how Rambus memory works, this thread makes an excellent read. There are some good explanations, as well as a few valuable links that will turn any novie into a well schooled memory whiz-kid.

    MP3 Software
    What is your favorite encoding software. Yeah yeah, we really believe you only use MP3 to back up your CD's (I'm so sure). Can y ou tell the difference between CD audio and MP3 encoded audio? If not, it's time for some speakers.

    Question On The 760
    We can't give you any details about the 760 chipset from AMD, but let's face it, would we really be promoting this thread if it weren't just around the corner?

    Like fists at a boxing match, rumors about the NV20 are really flying. Will we see six pipelines with three texture units per pipeline? Your guess is as good as ours. Seriously, we have no clue what the NV20 will look like.

    RADEON DDR Or GeForce2 MX?
    We've seem a few heated discussions regarding today's high-end video cards, but rarely do we see the value-end vehemently debated. There are quite a few good choices out there right now, so which really is better?

    Coke or Pepsi?
    Although we usually like to drink Tommyknockers, we will occasionally have a Coke or two. SO what'll it be? Coke or Pepsi?
