Intel's Xeon 5500 processor has made a big splash in the server world as the major manufacturers each have their own brands featuring the 45nm Nehalem architecture. But which one is best?
The latest 45nm Opteron processor can run at 40W, down from the previous low of 55W
AMD said Wednesday that it recently demonstrated its six-core AMD Opteron processor dubbed Istanbul.The 45nm chip is set to launch in the second half of this year and AMD is aiming to be "the only x86 six-core processor available for two- and four-socket systems and higher.
AMD has already cut prices for its flagship 45nm processor--which the company announced on January 8--for competitive reasons.The 3.
AMD is reported to have announced six new 45nm processors to be launched in the third quarter of this year and aimed at business users. The announcement follows AMD's launch of its first 45nm Shanghai processor in November this year.
The company has launched an updated line of Sun Fire x64 servers and Sun Blade systems powered by AMD's first 45nm Opteron processor
After initial overclocking disappointment with the Phenom, AMD has put effort into giving the Phenom II a fair amount of overclocking overhead.At a demo yesterday journalists were shown a 45nm Phenom II processor running at 4GHz air-cooled, 5GHz using dry ice as a coolant, and well over 5GHz using liquid nitrogen (LN2) coolant.
A while back I received a note from Red Hat's PR company that exclaimed that Red Hat and AMD had successfully migrated a running virtual machine from a dual socket Intel Xeon DP Quad Core E5420-based system to a system based on the forthcoming 45nm Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ processor, utilizing Red Hat’s open source virtualization software. Neat trick.
The company has launched its latest quad-core Opteron processor, claiming advances in power efficiency
In today's news, Intel has released a new sibling of the 45nm family of Core 2 Quad processors: the Q9300 "Yorkfield" processor, which comes in at 2.5 GHz with a 1333 MHz front side bus.
An update to my post earlier today on Shanghai, AMD's 45nm processor due around the end of this year. The site Fudzilla says internal data shows the quad-core desktop version, code-named Deneb, can reach speeds as high as 3.2GHz.
HyperTransport 3 which was once slated for AMD's Barcelona server processors seem to be delayed again on Shanghai until some time in 2009 when it finally arrives for the "Montreal" quad- and octal-core CPUs. According to page 21 of Mario Rivas' slides, the roadmap clearly indicates AMD's first 45nm processor Shanghai won't get the newer inter-processor interconnect and it will instead use the older HyperTransport 1 interconnects.
After a dismal 2007, AMD is trying to regain its footing. The company made several technology announcements at a computer tradeshow last week--including progress on 45nm processors. But it remains to be seen whether AMD can deliver on all of this, and be more competitive in 2008.
Credit: Fuad Abazovic, FudzillaPhotos of CPU-Z highlighting AMD's 45nm Shanghai quad-core processor appeared on Fudzilla last week. It confirms that AMD's latest processor will have a total of 2 megabytes L2 cache (512 KB per core), and 6 megabytes of shared L3 cache.
In addition to a new MacBook Pro Apple also today announced an updated MacBook notebook with similar upgrades.The new MacBook ships with Intel's latest mobile processor, Penryn, which is based on 45nm-process technology, just like its big brother the MacBook Pro.
The 3GHz Core 2 Extreme QX9650, Intel's first 45nm processor, has a total of 12MB of Level 2 cache at its disposal. This benchmark test shows what else the new chip has to offer.
Intel not only showed off its next generation 45nm Penryn processors at Intel fall IDF 2007 during CEO Paul Otellini keynote, they showed a three-week old second generation 45nm Nehalem processor running Windows XP.
Intel's forthcoming 45nm processor manufacturing process has metal inside. The chipmaker, for the first time, will substitute certain materials that it—along with the whole industry, in fact—has been using since the 1960s to make transistors.
