Come next month, Intel will expand its range of mobile Ivy Bridge CPUs will some more dual core models as well as some new ULV models and although this in itself is no big secret, pricing of the upcoming models have now turned up. This gives us a good idea as to how Intel is
Brazos 2.0 has arrived, well, at least unofficially as Acer has started to sell its Aspire E1-421 in parts of Asia and it sports AMD's yet to be announced E1-1200 APU. The details are fairly slim at the moment, but the Aspire E1-421 is a budget notebook to every extent of the word.
We address one of the most pertinent question that is on the minds of new Ivy Bridge platform shoppers – is the hyperthreading capable / 2MB more L3 cache i7-3770K (US$313) worth the almost 50% price premium over the i5-3570K (US$212), especially when both chips are overclocked at 4.8GHz?
The foundry battle between TSMC, world's largest foundry and GlobalFoundries, world's second or third foundry – is heating up. Today, TSMC announced that the company managed to clock the ARM Cortex-A9 core all the way to 3.1GHz using 28nm process node.
Details of a full-fat mobile Ivy Bridge Core i3 processor have turned up and it looks like we were right about the fact that these chips will be arriving much later this year than their higher-end siblings. The chip in question is the Core i3-3110M and it's expected sometime in Q3 this year, which right now is
It would appear that Intel is finally getting ready to unveil its LGA-1356 Xeon processors later this quarter and initially we'll see the Xeon E5-2400 series, a platform that will support up to two sockets. Oddly enough, Intel is said to be planning a couple of Pentium models that are compatible with the LGA-1356 socket,
In a logical manoeuvre on its pricing regime, Intel has just shaven pricing down, albeit only slightly, on two of its beloved previous-generation Sandy Bridge Core i7 CPUs – namely the Core i7-2600K and Core i7-2700K.
Yes, it is Larrabee reborn – this time the focus is strictly on supercomputing and general technical computing acceleration. What's the focus?
Reports say China is going ahead with its own nationwide instruction set architecture, something that will surely not be X86. This is a massive endeavor – what may really happen?
Samsung has launched the Exynos 4 Quad application processor for smartphones and tablets, which is the first in the industry to use the High-k Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power process technology.
There's no denying that Intel's Ivy Bridge CPUs are running hotter than expected, especially during overclocking and so far no-one has really managed to figure out what's going on, but now reports are coming in that it might be related to the thermal compound Intel is using. If this really is the case is something
Some interesting details about Nvidia's upcoming Tegra 3 products turned up in our inbox the other day and it looks like the company is planning on giving Tegra 3 yet another speed boost before its upcoming Wayne SoCs arrive. Speaking of which, the first handset implementation of Wayne should be known as AP40, but it
It would appear that AMD's Korean branch office has been a little bit too eager to get its retail materials out to its partners and now some of that material has made its way onto the interweb. Normally this kind of stuff is quite boring and doesn't say much about the upcoming product, but AMD
You'll be forgiven for never having heard of either Ingenic or Vivante, but it's likely that we'll be hearing a lot more about both companies in the future. Ingenic is a Chinese MIPS SoC maker, whereas Vivante makes GPU cores, much like Imagination Technologies and the two has now signed a licence agreement where Ingenic
We do a quick runthrough of benchmarks tests @ 4.8GHz on the new 22nm "Ivy Bridge" Core i7-3770K (Retail E1 Stepping) against the nearly 1.5 years old 32nm "Sandy Bridge" Core i7-2600K, and then give some useful consumer advice at the end.
As Intel launches the initial Ivy Bridge range this week, many more will follow, covering the range from thin UltraBooks to large SMP servers, over the next one year or so. What kind of flavours would go into each specific market?
Despite the fact that Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge based Core i3 processors aren't expected to arrive until early June, pricing for three of Intel's upcoming models have now made an appearance at several online retailers. We don't know Intel's pricing for these models, but at least the pricing available should give us a good indication
Intel's first smartphone will launch in India next week, thanks to a partnership with Lava International, one of the country's booming mobile handset manufacturers.
With Ivy Bridge's reign upon us and a slew of new processor models on the cards, Intel is running its usual course of phasing out the old and rolling in the new, only in this particular instance it's preparing to chop off some older low-end parts in the Celeron, Core i3 and Pentium famlies.
By the end of this month, desktops with Ivy Bridge processors will officially be out there. Since it shares the socket and board infrastructure with its Sandy Bridge predecessors, what new is in there to distinguish the newcomer? We look at the features and overall architecture…
