Intel today revealed some details on their 45nm Nehalem processors but we will tell you more later about Nehalem-based desktop processors that is not discussed during the press briefing. Here’s what we understand from the briefing : 1. Nehalem is on native 45nm Hi-K and is on track for 2008 release 2. 4-issue Core Architecture
Intel revealed today that 45nm Penryn clocked above 3GHz, a higher FSB, new SSE4 and delivers more IPC than the current 65nm Merom. Micro-tweaks that reduce CPU latency on the Penryn includes a faster divider technique called Radix-16 divider that enables 4 bits per cycle compared to 2 bits on the Merom and a shuffle
Intel 45-nm Penryn family of processors would be in production during the second half of 2007. Intel claims to have more than 15 45-nm hi-k product designs in various stages of development. 45-nm is “far from” a simple shrink of a 65-nm device. Intel’s 45-nm high-k process technology offers approximately twice the transistor budget, 20
We have shown you a pic of the water-cooled R600 earlier and here are some close-up shots for you guys to enjoy. We learned that R600 can be overclocked to 850MHz easily on its default cooler and with this special water-cooled edition, we can expect even higher clocks. Interestingly, we heard that any core clock
GeForce 8600 GTS, 8600 GT and 8500 GT are all firmed for April 17th launch and card makers have already received revision A2 GPUs from NVIDIA for mass production. We can expect cards to reach distributors and retailers in 2 weeks time ready for mass availability in the market. The performance of the G84 and
TSMC will start running its 55-nm process technology on a prototype basis in May, initially planning to offer it on a bi-monthly basis. The process is a 90 percent linear-shrink from its 65-nm to deliver “significant die cost savings from 65-nm, while offering the same speed and 10 to 20 percent lower power consumption.” In
Designed by NVIDIA” motherboards are designed by NVIDIA engineers to deliver optimal performance for NVIDIA nForce media and communication processors (MCPs) and GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs). All hardware, software, drivers, and BIOSes are designed by NVIDIA. This complete kit is brought to market worldwide under partner brands including EVGA, XFX, BFG, Colorful Technology, and
We first broke the news about ASUS making sound cards over at CeBIT and DigiTimes followed up with an article yesterday stating Xonar D2X is using CMedia sound chips instead of ADI we initially heard. If that the case, Xonar D2/X is most probably based off C-Media Oxygen HD CMI8788 sound chip according to the
Working to free the industry from the constraints of proprietary architectures and making it easier than ever for customers to manage today’s increasingly diverse IT environments, AMD today announced new interoperability testing tools, codenamed “SIMFIRE,” to help speed the adoption of the recently announced Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (“DASH”) specification. Addressing the
According to Chinabyte, AMD made an interesting remark on Intel plans to set up a fab in China. AMD spokesman commented that Intel to build a fab in China is a good thing as it will propel China IT industry development and beneficial to the consumers. It will also boost the overall market competitiveness.
For R700, G90 & Larrabee Qimonda plans to skip the GDDR4 graphics memory technology generation in favor of GDDR5. With the move, the company seeks to address the high end of the market. In 2011 the mainstream memory technology in this segment will be GDDR5 – not GDDR4. Most customers will move from GDDR3 directly
Intel announced plans to build a 300-mm wafer fab in the coastal Northeast China city of Dalian in Liaoning Province. The $ 2.5 billion investment for the factory designated Fab 68 will become Intel’s first wafer fab in Asia and adds significant investment to Intel’s existing operations in China. When completed, Fab 68 will become
ASUS plans to ship 500,000 Xonar D2X audio cards which adopt C-Media’s solutions in 2007 after seeing satisfactory sales following the card’s introduction at CeBIT 2007. The audio card, which will primarily target the gaming market, features 3D sound processing and supports Dolby Digital Live, DTS and 5.1 surround sound. C-Media is reported to earn
We seen enough of retail X2900 XTX card photos over the past few days and this time round we will bring you the water-cooled version of the R600 card to enjoy over the weekend. This cooling solution is probably provided by Aavid Thermalloy and coincidentally Aavid is touting their Turbo Tube cold plates with mass
