The legendary British IT website HEXUS is closing down. For around 23 years, the site operated and provided information on the entire spectrum of the technology world in countless news and articles. Founder David Ross announced the closure of the site earlier this week.
HEXUS.net at an end
In a message to readers, founder Ross once again sums up the experiences of the past 23 years. With a news about AMD’s 3DNOW or the breaking of the embargo on Intel’s Conroe processors, he mentions two events that have particularly influenced him during his work.
The bit-tech site, which was also run by David Ross, will also be closed. However, the NEXUS forum is to remain open.
In the process, one of the most venerable and renowned IT websites will go offline with the end of HEXUS. However, two of the editors, Tarinder Sandhu and Parm Mann, have already announced the launch of a new technology website.
Tarinder Sandhu and Parm Mann launch Club386
Club386 is the name of the new IT website launched by former NEXUS editors Sandhu and Mann. As planned, the site officially launched on November 10. Since the closure of HEXUS was a very short notice, the new project has a rather simple and functional design.
According to the two founders, however, this should be improved as quickly as possible. After all, the test of the Intel Alder Lake-S processors is already online at Club386, whose name was inspired by the i386 32-bit microprocessor architecture.
