In the last part of our Chinese CPU story, we covered ICube and their processors with a brand new instruction set, something not seen in like two decades. Here's a bit more about the new architecture after the visit to their Shenzhen HQ.
We've already reported about the upcoming graphics-less Sandy Bridge models, the Core i5-2380P, Core i5-2450P and the Core i5-2550K and now we have the launch date. We also have the target demographics of these new CPUs, even though we still have a bit of a hard time following it.
ComputerBase has leaked a couple of slides from AMD's CES 2012 press deck, covering performance gains expected over Llano, as well as battery life. The focal point is certainly the 17W variant designed for "ultrathins" – AMD's answer to ultrabooks.
Broadcom's CTO, Henry Samueli, said at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas that the company is developing high-end smartphone processor chips for release by the end of this year.
Just like one of those elusive dinosaurs which live under your sofa and cast shadows at night, we spotted a Phenom II X8 running in the wild, which first appeared in QVL lists released by some motherboard manufacturers last month. No details about its performance or availability yet…
Few weeks back, Microsoft caused a lot of fuss by releasing an incomplete Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2 patch for AMD Bulldozer architecture, which should increase the performance. Download those today.
We've already reported on Intel and Motorola's partnership on smartphones and tablets, but what wasn't included there was anything about the actual hardware. Intel has finally announced its Medfield Atom processor, now known as the Z2460 and this is what will be making its way into the first Intel powered smartphones.
Intel and Motorola Mobility are teaming up to provide Android-powered smartphones and tablets using Intel Atom processors, with the first devices expected for release later this year.
At CES 2012, AMD demonstrated notebooks running Trinity – with heavy workloads – and high-end HD 7000M graphics featuring next-gen 28nm GCN GPUs.
Here's a treat for all hard core enthusiasts – an engineering sample of the upcoming Xeon E5 (Sandy Bridge-EP 8 Cores, 16 Threads) was spotted by our team working on a ASUS ROG Rampage IV GENE motherboard, which was housed inside a small Thermaltake mATX lanparty box. This pretty much confirms internet rumors that have
Intel has only just gotten its Cedar Trail-M processors out of the door, but the company is already planning new, slightly faster models in the mobile space, as well as a new desktop part. Intel has kindly leaked all the details of the three upcoming models in a spec sheet that recently got updated and
The company is getting ready to unleash the 22nm Ivy Bridge processors to the world by choosing to kill a lot of 32nm processors which currently make the desktop mix.
As the Ivy Bridge processors from Intel comes out four months from now, its graphics, with reportedly double the Sandy Bridge GPU performance, would have an impact on entry level discrete GPUs. Will Haswell continue with the same major performance jump, or just some moderate improvements?
In a last minute attempt at getting rid of some more Sandy Bridge processors, Intel will be launching three new SKUs, one of which will be the rumoured Core i5-2550K. The big news here isn't actually the new models themselves, but the fact that none of the three new models feature built in graphics.
A forum poster at Chiphell has released benchmarks for a system featuring two anticipated next-gen products – AMD's Radeon HD 7770 and Intel's Ivy Bridge Core i5 3550K. The HD 7770 featured is the reference design – identical to the previous pictures leaked. While the i5 3550K is as much part of the system, the
The full-blooded Socket 2011 CPUs have two QPI links on each socket, to connect either doubly to another CPU, or each connect to one neighbouring processor. With so many pins available, is there use for, say, one more QPI channel? Yes!
The worst-ever MRT metro line disruption in Singapore affected hundreds of thousands; can custom supercomputer simulation systems cushion the impact of such disasters in real time?
Although good news in a way for Intel, it seems that the demand for its Ultrabook specific Ivy Bridge processors have been much higher than Intel initially anticipated and the company has as such had to make some changes to the configurable TDP of said processors. It appears that the company can't meet its earlier
As we've already reported, Intel is about to launch Ivy Bridge in early April and although we didn't specify a date in our earlier stories, Digitimes has now confirmed the April 8th launch date that we'd previously heard. This information is apparently coming from Taiwanese PC makers and we'd say it's pretty much spot on, unless
We're fairly certain that none of our regular readers are surprised to see the arrival of Intel's Atom N2600 and N2800 Cedar Trail-M based Atom processors today, as we reported about it launching at the very end of the year over a month ago. That said, no products will be available for at least a couple
