Intel Corp. has started sampling an Itanium-2, 64-bit microprocessor that was made by linking together 1.72 billion transistors. The processor, codenamed Montecito, was discussed as far back as August 2002, but it is now sampling to some Intel customers, a company spokesman said.

Montecito exceeds the billion-transistor count because the Itanium-2 processor architecture is itself complex — a 64-bit processor intended for server applications — and the Montecito model integrates two processing cores. It also has 26-Mbytes of on-chip cache (208-Mbits), according

A second PC vendor hoping to cash in on mimicking the success of Apple Computer's Mac mini introduced an ultra-small machine Thursday.
VoodooPC, best known for high-end, high-performance gaming PCs, unveiled the Idol Mini PC, a 6.5-inch square box that's sold sans keyboard, mouse, and monitor, like the diminutive Mac.

The Calgary, Alberta, Canada-based manufacturer, however, takes a different tack on pricing; its Idol costs $899, nearly double the $499 of the least-expensive Mac mini.
