Intel’s once-promising plan to take on Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices in chips that deliver high-end graphics was already looking troubled. Now it looks pretty much dead.
A statement Tuesday about that effort, delivered in a blog post on Intel’s website, is the latest fallout from stumbles in delivering a chip dubbed Larrabee that was expected to be used for high-end graphics and other applications.
Scientist at Intel Labs have come up with a way to reuse old servers and cluster them in such a way as to turn them into data centre routers.
The boffins, Gianluca Iannaccone and Sylvia Ratnasamy, have developed what they call “router bricks" for the reused servers which should save cash for IT departments. At the heart of the system is an open source software package called Click Router, developed at MIT a decade ago. This ties the servers together for their new roles in the data center.
SoC for tablets and chunky phones
Intel has launched its latest 45nm Atom iteration, dubbed Moorestown. The system-on-chip (SoC) platform is targeted at the increasingly popular tablet and smartphone market and it features three chips.
April 20, 2010 The Taiwan based PC thermal solution expert, Tuniq, has announced a new addition to their Tower 120 Extreme series of ultra performance CPU coolers, the Ą§Tower 120 Extreme Silver.
Sandy Bridge in 2011 compatible
Sandy Bridge, the brand new 32nm architecture is coming in Q1 2011 and so is the chipset to support it. There will be at least five different chipsets for these new dual and quad CPUs and let me present you a few of them.
The Q67 is the first on the list and it presents the Business stable generation of products. It supports LGA 1155 CPUs, has 14 USB 2.0. it has total of six SATA ports where two of them are 6Gb/sec while the others are slower.
Alas we can't play with it
Intel is handing out PCs equipped with an experimental 48-core CPU to a handful of lucky researchers.
The gear is being sent out as part of a research project as the 48-core part might never become commercially available. Intel wants researchers who are likely to want it for supercomputing tasks to give it a try.
"If you were looking to acquire the first microprocessor for your collection, or just to show it to your friends, there is a good deal on eBay right now. You can get Intel 4004 CPU in plastic package with full set of 4004 support chips, also in plastic packages, for mere $49 from this auction. Hurry, as these chips will sell fast. Granted, the plastic 4004 CPU is the cheapest from 4004 family, but in the past just the P4004 CPU without support chips was sold for more than $50.
Dealing with current news means that we rarely have the opportunity to review old products and of course a comparison between the most recent products and those that came out several years ago can get a little problematic. But we’ve decided to push the boat out and take as exhaustive a look as possible at the Intel and AMD processor offer spanning the last five years.
"The CPU market is now flooded with multi-core and multi-threaded CPUs. We see them in everything from smartphones (with Dual Core Cortex A9 from ARM) to the highest end notebooks and desktops where the Core i7-980X is now king. But the question many people are asking is; what will more cores give me? - So let’s take a brief look at why even with 6 and 12 core CPUs in the channel we do not see better multi-thread and multi-tasking support in our applications and operating systems.
