Intel is reclaiming some market share for semiconductors used in data-server networks, but the chip industry’s leader still lost overall share to smaller rival AMD for microprocessors used in PCs and servers in 2006. Intel controlled 74.4% of the microprocessor market at the end of the fourth quarter, down from 76% in the prior quarter.
We knew that the current Intel 975X and 965P chipsets are already supporting ATi Crossfire but the relationship is uncertain after AMD bought over ATi. Rest assured, the upcoming Intel X38 chipset will get official Crossfire support from AMD and we can expect even P35 to get Crossfire support as well. We can also expect
Seems like China has a new phone in development that looks pretty much like Apple’s iPhone with Touch Screen functionality. It is made by a company called Meizu and it is known as M8. It is smaller than Apple iPhone and thus a smaller screen size of 3.3-inches but just about as thin. The screen

It seems like Intel is going to bring back the good old Hyper-Threading and put it back to the 45nm Penryn architecture, something isn’t planned out on the earlier roadmaps. Previously we saw the quad-core Yorkfield having 4 cores / 4 threads and Wolfdale having 2 cores / 2 threads. Now Intel done some changes
We heard faintly about NVIDIA SLI 2.0 technology and it is going to launch during CeBIT in March. Little information is available at this moment but we heard that it will be able to support mixed cards. We are unclear if it is across different series or different models of the same series.. Also there
