We come close to AMD's top brass, and key industry watchers, right at AMD's home ground in hot, dry Austin, Texas. What did they say?
With Intel having had a hard time making up its mind with regards to when to actually launch its upcoming Ivy Bridge processors, we finally have some good news to report just ahead of the actual launch, Intel has decided to sell the new processors for less than initially expected. We've seen recent pricing details
Intel is doing its best to stretch the introduction of new Ivy Bridge processors for as long as possible throughout the year, or at least so it seems as details have reached us indicating that its Core i3 Ivy Bridge processors won't arrive until Q3. Some had hoped for an introduction in June, but it's
As AMD prepares to launch its third and critical Fusion APU, Trinity, later this spring, there are quite a few speculations on how it will perform. Here are the newest updates from reliable US sources
As it became common recently, Intel is unveiling the high end members of each new microarchitecture, or optical shrink, nearly a year after showing it in mainstream part. The same is expected to happen with Ivy Bridge – what does Intel have in store for top end users?
Evolution: Intel Haswell high end offerings to up the QPI speed and use it to join with MIC multi-teraflop chip
So, Intel's mainstream desktop CPUs don't have QPI links anymore? Well, the high end ones certainly do, and will have more… Intel is evolving the QPI further, speeding it up and adding more fun chips to it, using the co-processor model akin to the old 80×87 FPU days
China is enjoying increasing success with its own CPU developments, even though for now it is confined to the internal markets mostly. However, they are already undertaking the next step, and preparing to move into the GPU arena.
If you're a regular readers of publications like VR-Zone, you're most likely aware of the fact that Intel and AMD alike don't throw away "broken" CPU's, as it's simply too expensive. Instead these CPU's are repurposed as lower-end offerings and it looks like this is part of the reason for the delay of some Ivy
Over the years, Intel held to a steady strategy of launching new CPU architectures or processes first in the high end products, yet introducing new memory technologies at the mainstream. Now, the roles seem to have been reversed…
Despite the fact that Intel has been banging its drums about support for up to three displays on the upcoming 7-series motherboards in combination with a shiny new Ivy Bridge based CPU, this isn't likely to be the case. The simple reason behind this is that very few, if any motherboards will sport a pair
Got used to the simple packaging migration from LGA1156 to LGA1155? Intel's next generation – Haswell – is widely expected to up the ante in the PC CPU packaging excellence, and offer a spread of choices
We've already unveiled a lot of details about Intel's Valleyview 2 Atom core which will be part of the Bay Trail SoC and today we can reveal the clock speeds and a few more details about this upcoming Atom core. We've also got details on the TDP, graphics clock and a few other details to
China has now its share of high powered movers and shakers in the IT world. We all know how Lenovo masterfully played the strokes with its IBM PC division to become the global PC brand. How about the other big name there, Huawei?
In the discussions surrounding the launch of NVIDIA Kepler (GK104 – GTX 680 and GK107 – GT 640M) architecture, we learned a lot of interesting details from NVIDIA engineers and marketing staff. Interested in GPGPU in a smartphone?
We've already reported on the basic information that has leaked so far about Intel's upcoming Valleyview Atom SoC, but it appears that Intel is planning a range of SKUs for various markets according to information that has reached VR-Zone. In fact, the information that was leaked is with regards to Valleyview together with the information we've
Quite often Intel is the best source when it comes to its own product leaks and this time around its upcoming Valley View Atom SoC has leaked thanks to in part to the fact that Intel has had to submit graphics driver information in time for the upcoming Linux 3.4 kernel being set in stone.
Despite there being over a month until Intel is expected to launch its Ivy Bridge processors, benchmarks are popping up left right and centre on the internet and now the first Hackintosh with an Ivy Bridge CPU has been spotted. The system in question is running a Core i7-3770K CPU at stock clock and is
If you're into overclocking, then the news that Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge processors can reach memory speeds of over 3GHz is going to be exciting news in itself, but the fact that it can be done on four DIMMs is just insane. Intel has obviously done some serious improvements to the memory controller in Ivy
About a month and a half ago VR-Zone revealed Intel's Atom CE5300 series of media processors (also known as Berryville) as well as Intel's plans for Tizen and now Intel has officially announced the Atom CE5300 platform at the IPTV World Forum in London. Intel also had some of its partners at the show, displaying their very first set-top-boxes
The new generation dual Socket 2011 Xeon E5 platform has one rarely mentioned, but important, capability – receiving the I/O data from, say, storage or network, directly into the CPU cache, rather than going to and from the main memory. Direct I/O (DDIO) could be used even beyond workstations and servers, though… how about low-latency
