Disappointing chip demand, coupled by an inability to simulate the market with price cuts, caused Intel to reduce its quarterly estimates. Worldwide demand for processor products is below previous expectations driven by lower than expected end demand, along with customer reductions in component inventory levels. Intel would take an inventory writedown in the third quarter
Intel will publicly demonstrate Intel’s first dual-core processor as part of a keynote at the Intel Developer Forum. The most significant is likely to be the company’s first multicore microprocessor, a server chip Intel declined to name. Intel will describe some of the applications likely to get the most benefit from multicore CPUs, and lay
IntelItanium 2 processor, codenamed Madison 9M, will be postponed by one quarter to the fourth quarter of this year. Madison 9M will have a 9MB L3 cache but it will run at a clock speed of 1.6GHz, instead of the originally planned 1.7GHz. The delay may have been caused by Intel dedicating too many of
Intel introduced the Intel® Celeron® M processors 350 and 360 for mobile PCs. Based on Intel’s mobile architecture, the Intel Celeron M processor balances good mobile performance with exceptional value in thin and light notebook designs. The Intel Celeron M processors 350 and 360 are the first standard-voltage Intel Celeron M processors built on Intel’s

AMD announces it is demonstrating the industry’s first x86 dual-core processor. During demonstrations held at the companys Austin facilities, AMD is showing an HP DL585 server powered by four dual-core AMD Opteron processors manufactured on the 90nm silicon-on-insulator process technology. The dual-core AMD Opteron processor for servers and workstations is expected to offer the best
Orion is offering two models of its Cluster Workstations far faster than standard desktop computers. The first is a desktop model the size of a pizza delivery box with room for 12 computer processing chips. The second is a "deskside" model that has room for 96 processing "nodes" or chips. Both rely on Transmeta chips.
AMD is going to start shipping out 90nm SOI Opterons by end of this year codenamed Athens/Troy/Venus and there are some changes in the 940-pin package design on 90nm compared to the current package design on 130nm Opteron. The changes include using organic instead of ceramic improved electrical characteristics with copper conductors and planes vs.
AMD has published some information on their Dual core processors in a AMD64 status report for Kernel Summit took place in Ju. AMD has suggested to developers that software be licensed based on number of populated sockets, scheduled based on number of cores. In order for software to distinguish sockets from cores, an unique initial
A surge in demand for AMD Athlon processors has caused a supply shortage in the channels in Taiwan, China and Europe, and this may undermine AMD’s opportunity to boost its market share. Demand for AMD Athlon processors began to pick up after AMD cut its CPU prices by an average 30% in July. The shortage

AMD has begun to incorporate a form of strained silicon into 90nm chips shipping currently, a design twist that will let the company increase the performance of its processors. Although AMD is not divulging many details about its strained silicon, the company’s technology differs from the way IBM and Intel incorporate it. AMD is more
AMD today introduced the AMD Athlon™ 64 processor 3700+ for desktop-replacement notebooks, extending the award-winning AMD64 processor family to new heights with the highest performing 32-bit/64-bit processor available for mobile PCs. AMD Athlon 64 processor 3700+ for desktop-replacement notebooks is the most advanced PC processor designed for notebook computing, offering outstanding 32-bit power today plus
Unit sales of AMD Athlon 64 processors are expected to grow 50% sequentially in the second half of this year. Improved yield rates for K8 processors and AMD’s recent price cuts, about 20% on average, for the Athlon 64 processor lineup, are two key factors driving second-half sales. Sales of K8 processors started gaining momentum
AMD is going to release the 90nm AMD64 processors soon for mobile, desktop and servers and these are based on Revision D cores. According to some docs we have seen, there is another major silicon revision change on the AMD64 processors taking place next year with Revision E. Rev E changes will be affecting all
AMD is one of the few companies on 90nm that does not seem to have had significant delays or defect issue. Revenue shipments of AMD64 notebooks on 90nm started this week, well within the planned schedule for shipments prior to the end of Q3. Desktop AMD64 shipments on 90nm will commence a month later, followed
NVIDIA today introduced the GeForce(TM) 6600 GT and GeForce 6600, the latest additions to its GeForce 6 Series of graphics processing units (GPUs). These new products bring the feature set of NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce 6800 GPU, including support for Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and NVIDIA’s revolutionary UltraShadow II technology, to the mainstream market.
The time is not yet ripe for positioning the 64-bit version of the Prescott processor for the desktop. Intel’s aim is to ease the relatively high inventory levels of its 32-bit processors before migrating the new chips to the desktop segment. The 64-bit-capable Pentium 4 CPUs are available at 3.2F, 3.4F and 3.6F GHz. Intel
