The new chipsets allow faster transfer speeds for storage devices and support Intel's forthcoming refreshed Haswell CPUs. Unlike the H97, the Z97 allows overclocking when used with an unlocked Intel processor.
Unlike the 22nm Bay Trail processors, Braswell will use a 14nm manufacturing process, though no launch date has been announced.
Windows Azure is is compliant with the PCI DSS, a standard designed to help thwart credit-card data fraud. Meanwhile, Azure's Hyper-V Recovery Manager is now generally available.
South Korean chip maker's revenue increased by 430 percent quarter-on-quarter to hit a record net profit of US$984 million, on the back of rising demand for DRAM chips used in mobile devices and PCs.
Sales in semiconductors are up month-on-month and year-on-year, but the balancing act between PCs and tablets is beginning to help the memory and chip making industry recover.
Company says the new 4GB LPDDR3 chip is an industry first using 20-nanometer processes, and offers more than double the performance of the previous standard in terms of data transmission.
Poland's answer to ARM is keeping the flame alive for a line of chips that Intel abandoned long ago.
Being at the heart of the PC industry means that the shift from PCs to post-PC devices is putting considerable pressure on chip giant Intel.
Big Blue says its silicon nanophotonics technology could have big data implications now that it can be used in standard semiconductor manufacturing processes.
After a slow start to its latest tablet initiative, the chip company claims up to 10 design wins for its Z-60 processor.
In a move to break into mobile devices, the chipmaker has teamed up with ARM and other key mobile tech players — but not Intel — to set up a consortium to develop a common hardware standard for system-on-a-chip
IBM said that it created 48 holes in a standard CMOS chip to make the Holey Optochip. These holes allow optical access through the back of the chip to 24 receiver and 24 transmitter channels.
Businesses that accept credit or debit cards have continued to fail at achieving and maintaining compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), according to a report (PDF) released by Verizon.

To make sure there's further confusion in the myriad ways you can connect an external device to your computer, the PCI special interest group says it is working on an external version of PCI Express, the standard already used internally in PCs for graphics cards, sound cards, and even SSDs. It would join eSATA, USB 3.
Chip manufacturers Qualcomm and Texas Instruments have detailed new processors that will be compatible with the recently unveiled Windows 8 operating system.Windows 8 has been optimised for touchscreen devices although it will work on conventional, non-touch PCs too.
Even if you can still get more storage per dollar with a traditional hard drive, the market for solid state drives is red-hot, and Intel appears intent on leading the way. It's already released a couple of new SSD families this year, and a slide leaked to Engadget shows that the chip giant plans an additional five new series for the rest of 2011, including a version that uses the PCI Express interface.
A week after Intel announced a design flaw in a support chipset used in its second-generation Intel Core processor, widely known as Sandy Bridge, the company said today that it would resume shipments for use in PCs that are not impacted by the flaw.Meanwhile, the company said it expects to begin shipping a new version of the chip in mid-February, which could presumably be as early as next week.
Intel helped usher in the era of solid state drives for consumer PCs with its X25 lineup, and now the chip giant is readying new SSDs that will easily eclipse the performance of their predecessors.Fudzilla reports that a pair of new drives will be launched next month, and this page on Intel's Website confirms that the new 510 series is designed for the "enthusiast consumer client PC.
