OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory, today announced a high-speed version of the new OCZ Reaper HPC memory line, a PC2-9200 rated kit, making it the world’s fastest memory that takes advantages of the heatpipe design to effectively offload heat and increase performance and stability. This unique Reaper HPC (Heat Pipe Conduit) heatspreader is engineered to deliver superior silent heat dissipation over traditional heatspreaders.

As part of one of OCZ’s high performance memory designs, PC2-9200 Reaper HPC modules are designed to achieve exceptionally high frequencies while maintaining aggressive timings and system stability. The new Reaper DDR2-1150 is the premier, cutting-edge solution for enthusiasts building a performance machine.

“With ultra-high speed memory comes the need for extreme cooling solutions that can be extremely costly or else rely on smart features borrowed from other cooling areas,” commented Dr. Michael Schuette, VP of Technology Development at OCZ Technology. “The Reaper HPC series is the first implementation of heat-pipe technology on memory modules using phase change technology for smart management of the thermal dissipation of one of the world's fastest memory modules, namely the PC2-9200 Reaper.”

The Reaper HPC is an innovative cooling solution developed by OCZ to effectively minimize heat produced by high-speed memory. As heat rises into the thermo-conductive copper heat pipe conduit, it is dissipated through the strategically-placed compact aluminum fin array. By guiding performance-robbing heat away from key memory components, the unique Reaper HPC design helps facilitate improved overclocking performance, while improving longevity and stability of the modules.

The PC2-9200 Reaper HPC modules are optimized for the latest cutting edge motherboards and will be available in 2GB (2x1024MB) dual channel kits. Like all OCZ premium memory, the PC2-9200 Reaper series is backed by a Lifetime Warranty and industry-leading technical support for unparalleled peace of mind.

Modified kernel forces Mac Mini to give up the "Smallest OSX Computer" title. Check it out in the news article

Pretty clever stuff! :)
The video is pretty cool to.

U know we`re heading for an influx of items that will be sold as their main purpose being to view Tube/google/compatible-site episodes, clips, music videos etc

Something about half the size of u`r keyboard, with wifi and a nice screen, maybe a wireless thing to u`r tv - so it looks like a glorified remote-control.

cool :)

not sure if one of the sites you linked to is legal tho ;) I know a few times there have been some illegal code on that site (apple kext's etc).

There are some images of the appletv aswell:

Also Screenshots:


GeforceGo 7300? :)

hmm I just read what you said lol :rolleyes: (think I need some coffee :) )

A devoted Apple hacker named "semthex" has apparently created a modified OSX kernel and released it to the public. The truly amazing news is that the modified kernel is being distributed under the terms of Apple's own Apple Public Source License , with source code to follow.

Semthex' kernels have been out for ages. (Dec 2006)
They were originally made for use with a PC which is illegal.

Two programmers, calling themselves Mifki/Vitaliy and Semthex, released new kernels by taking with opensource XNU tree and applying necessary patches to run the kernel on non-apple hardware. Mifki's goal was to release the kernel with as few patches as possible, that will be able to run on close-to-Apple hardware. Semthex's goal was making his kernel more compatible with legacy hardware, missing some of the crucial features.

Both kernels allowed most of the updated kexts/frameworks to work, making properly configured white-box PCs operate more like genuine Apple computers. While Mifki has only updated his kernel once, Semthex updates it regularly and has added AMD, VMWare and SSE2-support in his newest version. Semthex released his hacked kernel sourcecode on his webpage. On December 24 he also released the latest patches for the SSE3 kernel as a diff file for his original source tree as a Christmas present to the community. Special attention should be given to the SSE2 emulation which Semthex developed together with Rufus. This emulation is the first really complete emulation of all SSE3 instructions in the OSx86 history. The old SSE2 emulation were incomplete and only emulated 3 of the available SSE3 instruction and slow compared to the new emulator. This effort enabled even SSE2 OSx86 users to run e.g. iTunes 7 or high end 3d applications on their computers.

It's cool Semthex has customised his kernel so the appleTV will run OSX. I remember when he hotfixed the kernel with some security fixes (Apple DRM).
The kernel isn't illegal, just all the kexts which have copyright on them which appear on that site regularly.
I'm pretty sure Semthex's site only has legal stuff on it tho
