Chip maker Texas Instruments is quitting the mobile processor business and has been talking up ARM-based servers. The move emphasises the sheer changeability of component supplies.
In preparation for taking on Intel in servers and storage ARM has developed a new networking technology for its chips that lets them reach higher core counts than before while being able to effectively pass information across the chip.
There have been rumors that Intel's new Atom CPU, Clover Trail, would only support Windows 8, but not Android or Linux. We now know that the chip will support these open-source operating systems as well.
Details are sketchy, but the advent of 64-bit ARM datacenter servers could affect the datacenter hardware market significantly
General-purpose servers based on the Calxeda ARM CPU nodes are making their way on to the market
During its earnings presentation Cambridge chip designer ARM expressed confidence in future servers based on its technology, alluding to new designs that will be integrated
Hosted Windows and Linux servers that let you pay for CPU, RAM and storage by the hour — for small business not just enterprise: is a Dynamic Cloud Server a good way to scale a business web service?Usually, when you pay for a hosted server, you pick the specification you think you need and pay for extra bandwidth if you need it.
Intel hasn't had much luck to date with its system-on-chip designs for living room set-top boxes, but that hasn't stopped the chip giant from rolling out a new processor for the next generation of connected home theater devices.The Atom CE5300 Media Processor, code-named Berryville, is the first 32nm CPU Intel has offered for set-top boxes and "smart" TVs.
The Cambridge-based chip designer has reported rises in fourth-quarter profits, underpinned by success in smartphones and embedded systems and as it moves into Windows 8-based devices and servers
HP has unveiled a project to bring two disparate chip architectures closer together, announcing some high-end x86-based servers while also working some of its high-end features for Itanium into x86 software
To be sold in mid-2012, new Moonshot-powered systems touted to reduce power consumption and real estate in data centers by 89 percent and 94 percent, respectively, says IT vendor.
Long rumored as Intel's first response to AMD's Bulldozer platform, the new Core i7-2700K processor has been officially launched as the fastest Sandy Bridge desktop chip. The quad-core CPU should already widen the performance gap between the Bulldozer flagship FX-8150 and Sandy Bridge's high end, though at an approximate price of $330 (according to CPU World), the i7-2700K is nearly $100 more expensive.
The long-awaited day for AMD fanboys has arrived. The chip company has finally released its first Bulldozer desktop processors under the FX series name, including a flagship eight-core CPU that's priced at just $245.
As AMD works to ready its new Bulldozer desktop processors for release next month, it may be planning to price them even lower than initially thought. While the top FX series chip was once expected at around $320, CPU World reports that the eight-core FX-8150 was priced for pre-order at one online retailer for just $266.
While time is running down on 2011 being the year of Bulldozer, AMD is looking to next year to be the year of Piledriver. A leaked roadmap shows the chip company's desktop plans for 2012, and these include a processor that features 10 Piledriver CPUs, which will be improved versions of the forthcoming Bulldozer CPU.
The first reviews are in for AMD's new A8-3850 Llano accelerated processing unit (APU), which combines CPU and GPU cores on a single die, and the big question is: Can this $135 chip offer a viable alternative to Intel's lower-end Sandy Bridge processors?The answer: Yes, it can, but with a few caveats.
AMD's new A-series, or "Llano," Accelerated Processing Units -- which combine CPU cores with Radeon HD graphics cores on a single chip -- is off to a good start with HP's announcement that a whopping 11 different Pavilion and ProBook laptops will offer the new processors starting either later this month or in July.Unfortunately, HP hasn't disclosed which APUs will be available for which laptops, but the company has announced the particular laptop families that will support Llano.
Servers based on ARM processors are unlikely to ship in volume until 2015, according to the president of the chip design company."We firmly believe this is going to happen.
Linaro and Samsung have announced a low cost board for developers keen on rapidly prototypying Linux and Android applications on ARM.The Origen board, announced on Monday, contains a 45nm dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, a multi-core Mali400GPU and 1GB of DDR3 memory.
