As expected Intel announced its 14nm Broadwell processor family, but it is running late and won’t be available until the holidays. Despite this, Intel says Moore’s Law is alive and well, and will not only reinvent the PC, but also drive the next era of integrated computing.
Once a niche, high-performance computing has become a key growth area for the tech industry. Intel’s announcements at Supercomputing 13 today---including new details of a completely redesigned Many Integrated Core processor—show just how important technical computing has become.
Micron has today announced Automata Processor - a fundamentally new computing architecture capable of performing high-speed, comprehensive search and analysis of complex, unstructured data streams.
Nvidia has outlined its plan for the Denver high-performance computing processor, but is cryptic about when the chip might launch.The processor will have a 64-bit capability and emphasis will be placed on single-threaded performance, the company's chief executive, Jen-Hsun Huang, said on Thursday on the company's earnings call for the third quarter of 2012.
Intel's CTO has demonstrated technologies for future exascale computing, including applications built on the upcoming Knights Ferry many-core processor, and technology for lowering the power consumed by chips
Future Google Chromebooks to switch from Intel Atom to Core series processors, push prices above $500
With its Chromebooks, Google has been trying to revolutionize computing by switching to a browser-centered model. As a result, it doesn't necessarily require the beefy parts that a Windows-based laptop needs to deliver the fastest performance possible, relying on an Intel Atom N570 processor to power systems instead.
Chipmaker and ARM-licensee Marvell has announced a quad-core ARM processor, designed specifically for enterprise-level cloud computing applications.The company announced the new ARMADA XP processor on Monday.
High-performance computing specialist Appro has unveiled an overclocked dual-processor server targeted at companies that use major computing resources to exploit the financial markets
Intel Core i7-980X six-core "Gulftown" CPU gets reviewed, benchmarked. Verdict: Fastest desktop processor ever.
Depending on your view, PC gaming is dead or is the only way to game. Clearly, Intel is of the latter view, which is why the company chose to preview its new "Extreme Edition" CPU at the Game Developers Conferencethe Core i7-980X, the first desktop processor to feature six computing cores.
Previously code-named 'Tukwila', the processor promises increased performance, scalability and reliability for enterprise-level computing
Both companies will jointly develop high-performance computing systems based on Intel processor to extend products to wider audience, say executives.
Advanced Micro Devices has shipped a new Opteron chip that it is pitching as a processor alternative for servers that will be used in cloud computing infrastructure or "hyperscale" data centers.The Six-Core AMD Opteron EE processor operates at just 40 watts average CPU power (ACP), which compares with the 75 watts required by its predecessor.
Intel has hinted to its plans for its multiple-core Larrabee graphics processor, showing a design that uses 32 processor cores and mates each to its "own vector math unit, allowing each core to process very specialized tasks very efficiently," according to Electronista.The news was revealed at the opening of Saarland University's Visual Computing Institute this week, where Intel promised $12 million toward the new Intel Visual Computing Institute over the next five years.
I owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.
Intel desperately wants its Atom netbook processor inside almost every computing device on the market, from netbooks to robots. But would you run an Intel Atom server?
Alienware, Dell's extreme-high performance computing arm, has announced the arrival of its M17 laptop, one of the first such machines powered by the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300 (2.53 GHz, 12MB cache, 1066MHz FSB), the world's first mobile quad-core processor.
Since nothing gets Toybox readers going quite like processor wars -- I mean, hey, it's the Crusades of computing -- I thought I'd throw this little morsel into the ring.
AMD on Thursday announced its AMD FireStream processor, which is designed to allow for parallel computing performance found in graphic chips. The chip is tailored for scientific and engineering calculations.
Antivirus firm Sophos has updated its application control software so IT managers can block distributed applications such as SETI@home from being used on corporate desktops.Distributed computing systems use idle processor time -- usually in the form of a screensaver -- to crunch raw data.
