Dell's enterprise arm is making leaps and bounds this week with a host of new upgrades intended to boost cloud and datacenter performance.
The Atom family of processors has long promised reasonable performance with good battery life for mobile gear. Bay Trail finally fulfills that promise by Intel.
Intel finally has a serious solution for tablets. Bay Trail closes the gap with Arm-based competitors in terms of performance, power and price. Now it just needs some great tablets to go with it.
Intel today unveiled its new family of chips designed to challenge ARM in the tablet market - promising to deliver a two times performance boost on its earlier tablets and support a raft of new Windows 8 and Android tablets.
Intel is rumored to be getting ready to slash six months off the Atom timeline, bringing low-energy parts to market faster than ever before, and putting it in a strong position to compete against ARM.
Atom C2000 SoCs offer the performance of Xeon processors with the added benefit of the extra features found on SoCs.
There's an increasingly vocal chorus of analysts who believe that Intel can solve for ARM and ultimately pass that architecture in mobile computing performance.
Intel is hoping to gain more support for devices that use its Atom mobile chip by releasing a set of tools that the company says makes it easier to develop apps for Android devices that use ARM, as well as Intel, chip designs.
More than five years after Intel first announced Atom, the company has introduced the first top-to-bottom redesign of its low-power processor. With the Silvermont microarchitecture, does Intel finally have all the ingredients to challenge ARM in smartphones and tablets?
HP's Moonshot servers went into production with Intel's Atom processor first, but expect a fast follow with an ARM system powered by Calxeda.
Available in about 40 countries, Office Together, from France Telecom-Orange's service provider arm, adds network performance and security to the Office 365 service.
The Atom-based Latitude 10 is short on performance, but delivers excellent battery life — especially with the optional 4-cell battery. Although some aspects of the industrial design and build quality could be better, this is a decent business-class Windows 8 tablet.
Centerton is the key technology behind Intel's effort to bring its x86 architecture chips into low-power microservers, in an attempt to nip ARM in the bud before it establishes marketshare.
QNAP's new Atom-powered NAS boxes offer a good range of enclosure sizes and deliver better performance than the previous Marvell-based models.
The future of ARM processors is in designs which have multiple personalities and can switch workloads on the fly in order to optimize operations for performance and energy-efficiency.
Nvidia believes that high-performance servers will remain the domain of the x86 architecture for the next few years, but that ARM processors, combined with the power of the GPU, will eventually take over.
Windows 8 gives the x86 competition a fresh shot at the mobile market. With that mind, AMD announced a new Z-Series processor for Windows 8 tablets and hybrids. It will compete with Intel's recently-announced Atom Z2760 along with ARM-based tablets running Windows RT.
I'm no Windows 8 fan, but I thought Windows 8 tablets had a shot of making it. But, $600 for an ARM tablet? $800 for an Atom-powered tablet!? If the prices we're seeing are accurate, these are dead tablets walking.
