Good to see where it all comes from

Brilliant article, have a gold star and some smarties ;)

Seriously though, good read and very informative but not so much information that you get bored. Nice collection of images too for the simple people like me

And to anyone actually thinking of going on a trip round all those locations...give Evesham a miss, it's a dive.
Interesting article though :)

Man, I love overcocking. :D

Seriously though, great article. I actually learned from it. Great job, Wil!

I could swear that I've come across the exact same wordings of this article before... yep, I have.
LOL, about 75% of this article is copied from a previous PC Extreme article which I remember reading a long time ago and it definitely isn't dejavou I'm going through.

Good article, however, I spotted a few grammar mistakes and, of course, the statement above seems a little worrying.

I highly doubt Wil would intentionally copy somebody else's work.
I'd like to know about and see more pictures of Bit HQ.

I wish I never disposed of the magazine, because then I could prove that there was a lot of copying (75% approx.) from the similar kind of article in a previous issue of PC Extreme.

Er, who wrote the PCExtreme article?* :D With that magazine now dead, I thought it might be time to revisit the topic and give it a permanent place on the net!













*Hint: me.

Oh ok, I thought it might have been because of that.
Anyway, it's good to have had this potentially horrible mess for Bit-Tech cleared-up.

Great article Wil! Always wondered what the HQ looked like from directly above for bit ;)

Cool article guys, however a little errata is that Lara was created at Core design in Derby.

Could give Wales a bit of glamour by stating LG makes monitors there!

Great article, would be interesting to see an extended version for other companies, especially outside the US and tiger countries.

How about a tour of the bit-tech office, or where the staff have been on official visits?

As a Canadian I would like to trade ATi HQ for nvidia. Also I would love if they traded Voodoo HQ for Alianware.

lol ditto to that! I was abit suprised out there not being a mention of ireland in the article. Intel have fab 24 in Leixlip, kildare. plus already own fabs 10 and 14 not sure if they're kicking out intel componants though.

You guys totally missed Austin, Texas; they have a whole bunch of stuff, including major offices for AMD and Intel.

Twould have been cooler if you had posted locations for more of the major fabrication plants out there; Intel operates a couple plants out of Oregon for example, and a whole bunch of other fabrication plants are around there; they just dont come to mind :p

"If you've been following the ever-delayed progress of top title S.T.A.L.K.E.R, you might know that it's being developed in the same Eastern European location the game itself is set in. Developers GSC Game World run their office out of Kiev, in the Ukraine. The boys caused quite a stir went it was revealed they travelled to nearby Chernobyl to conduct research and take photographs of the famous nuclear disaster site. Whilst the game was due to be released last year, it now looks like we won't see it until the summer, if at all."
Thats from page 5, shouldnt it be "the boys caused quite a stir WHEN it was revealed . . .
