IWILL ZMAX based on nVIDIA nForce3 Pro 250Gb chipset will sample in July. Volume production is planned in September, with a suggested price of $499. IWILL plans to get attention in workstation market. ZMAXdp will include proprietary form factor motherboard, 300W power supply, up to 2x3.5" HDD bay, and 1xAGP; PCI and SI can offer various configurations for workstation market demand.
DURING THE the past few months, Hewlett Packard has achieved MMB3, SAP SD, and TPC-C x86 4P benchmark records for its AMD Opteron based Proliant DL585 quad server. It was only last month that this server entered the sales channel.
AMD's was far more devious, and was done in association with Compaq. It seems the new Compaq gaming boxes in the aluminium wave cases were everywhere. I noticed them at the THQ party, and before I realized it was in fact a cunning plan, I had commented to Burt Carver and Rob 'AMDZone' Squires about how everything on the show floor was an AMD64 box.
AMDs plan was to do exactly that, make sure every PC on the floor was indeed an AMD64 machine. If it wasn't a Compaq, at least it would be AMD powered. Nothing blunt, nothing obvious, but deviously guerrilla. Like Intel, I was probably the only one who noticed, but I DID notice.
I must note that NC Soft's booth was crawling with Dulls. No Dull employees where present, and you can believe me I was looking for them. After their late pull out of TXGF along with their networking equipment I'm not what you would call impressed by their cheapness and lack of honor.
WE plan a 64Bit Version of Zeta in the future but not for R1. The
plan is to
have it working with R2. That timescale is needed because we also
apps beside Zeta using the performance. Otherwise it would not make
sense to do so.

The current 64-bit Linux drivers are two generations behind the current internal driver we are working on releasing. We have significantly improved performance for that driver and will be releasing it within the next few months.
Denver's UT2004 64 client benchmarking led us to ask this question. Here is hoping for the new driver sooner than later.
The KV8-MAX3 has many things about it that I liked very much and is very enthusiast oriented, being blessed with an abundant array of feature options to fine tune your performance. Stability was never in question as the board ran fine through all our battery of tests including the stress and torture sequences making for a very stable board. Overclocking can be done without to much hassle, but the results will vary form one rig to the next depending on memory and CPU limitations. The BIOS is very user friendly and is easy to understand for the most part. If you want to push your system way past spec, the BIOS offers enough options and control that if used in conjunction with excellent cooling, should prove to be interesting at the very least not to mention fun for those so inclined.
