The "Denlow" Xeon E3 v3 platform, in early to mid 2013, would be the first Haswell workstation / entry level platform, just after the Ivy Bridge based Xeon E5 v2 platform appears – odd roadmap schedule, isn't it?
In the world of server and workstation systems, Intel deploys a two-fold strategy with "EP" and "EX" -platforms. For example, Boxboro-EX platform powers the Xeon 6500/7500 and E7-2800/4800/8800 processors, while Romley-EP platform powers Xeon E3 and E5 Series.
The sale of zero-day exploits is a highly controversial topic, but the debate has recently taken on a new tone. Instead of being centered on the money or the ethics of it, the debate has become centered on the issue of personal freedoms and liberties.
Antec is a well-known computer case manufacturer with a long line-up of products.

Intel’s “MIC” Xeon Phi die has 62 cores, and was aimed for clocks much higher than 1GHz to fight Nvidia GK110
Our Theo covered a bit of the current stage of Xeon Phi a.k.a MIC sampling. Is there more meat left on the table?
Nvidia's Kepler, although arriving much later to the 28nm game, has proven itself to be a credible competitor to the Southern Islands offerings of AMD, excelling in mainstream gaming performance and energy efficiencies. What happens if you take the already cut-down 7 SMX units in the GK104 die of GTX 670 and further curtail its
These things that you cant really play… We test the effects of resolution scaling, graphical detail, computationally heavy GPGPU tests and do some power/price analysis at the end.
The way its meant to be played… or gaming evolved? We run through the performance of the different game engines behind some of the popular titles today to see the effects of memory bandwidth and clock speed scaling on contemporary GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.
The competition over high performance CPU coolers has been relentless lately as numerous companies, both old players and newly founded, are continually releasing new high performance and/or innovative products. It is in the midst of this fierce competition that Phanteks was founded, a company which will be focusing on high performance cooling-related products for
Input devices are undeniably necessary for the use of a computer; at least for the time being. In the past few weeks we have reviewed a long list of high performance keyboards, mechanical or not. HTPC users however require an entirely different kind of product and here is where Xebec Tech comes into play.

ASUS's Republic of Gamers boards are advertised as gaming-oriented boards, yet they also have a deadly alter ego which caters to the extreme overclocking hobbyist (à la Batman-Bruce Wayne). Today we explore the reasons why the sub-US$200 mATX Maximus V GENE (Z77) has a cult following among enthusiasts these days and also put an Ivy Bridge 3770K
Fuzhou Rockchip Electronics Company (or simply Rockchip) is mostly known for its low-power silicon which powers numerous entry-level tablets, smartphones, digital frames, personal media players etc. The company recently unveiled its high-performing chips, the RK 3000 Series.
We won't play Capt. Obvious in stating that Intel's next high-end desktop (HEDT) platform is codenamed "Ivy Bridge-E," but we've dug up some reliable information pointing at its launch time-frame, and compatibility with current "Sandy Bridge-E" platform.
Several weeks ago, Intel officially announced first products based on the 22nm Knights Corner architecture. Known as Xeon Phi, the Larrabee Reborn is coming to fight Nvidia Tesla, AMD FireStream, FPGAs and Chinese CPU vendors.
