xlr8yourmac.com has feedback on the new Voodoo5 drivers as well as quite a lot of reports on various other software updates.
Shugashack notes that Quake 3 has gotten a new update (1.25) which seems to break compatibility with most mods, while fixing some bugs in the original game. The way it looks at the moment, I'd recommend you to wait for further feedback before you update yourself.
the register kindly sums up an interview with John Carmack over at Voodooextreme.com. There is a lot of tech-babble indeed, but John's vision on what the ideal graphics-card for Doom 3 sports is, to be brief, shocking.
P4 prices out
the register also has gotten word from "reliable sources", that the P4 will ship at the end of October with 1.3GHz pricing around 635$ and 1.4GHz at about 805$. Faster units don't seem to be availlable at launch.
PB G4 news
AppleInsider has some "news" on the PowerBook G4 aka Mercury. They say there will be a new, more iBook-ish case and G4 chips of up to 450MHz (only...).
Just got back
After a hell of a night in the train and about 20hours of travelling, I'm back at home with a humming headache and a lack of sleep of about 50hours:) Anyway, I felt like posting a few news, so there you go. I missed a lot of partially important stuff that week. Please understand that I can't play catch-up with several dozen news sites, who have been posting daily, so I will just continue from now on.
