Intel's upcoming 2011 SSD lineup leaked -- five new series include PCIe-based drive

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.

Fujitsu adds server to 'zero-watt' hardware portfolio

(Updated July 25, 2010, to add pricing) For smaller companies that are interested in a more energy-efficiency entry level server, Fujitsu has just come out with the Primergy TX100 S2, based on the Intel Xeon processor 3400 series.The big value proposition for the new hardware is that it draws zero watts during its off state; most other server models draw some sort of residual power even they are supposedly powered down.

Intel opens I/O lab in Beijing

Intel said this week that it has formed an I/O Interconnect Lab in its Beijing research and development facility to test new input-out architectures such as Infiniband and later PCI Express, for future servers. The lab will be jointly created with Tomen, a Chinese computer distributor and developer.

PCI - The third generation

Over the next few months, you'll hear about PCI Express. This is an Intel-backed proposal for a next-generation PCI bus aimed at every size of computer from notebook to server

Intel gets off the bus--déjà vu?

Remember when Intel introduced the PCI bus and abandoned VESA Local Bus? Now that Intel has also pulled away from InfiniBand, Bill O'Brien wonders whether PCI-X and InfiniBand can really live together in harmony.

3GIO tech gets a name--'PCI Express'

SEATTLE--The Third-generation input-output (3GIO) standard spawned by Intel and now backed by others has been given a formal name: PCI Express. The PCI-SIG announced the name Wednesday at Microsoft's Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) conference here. PCI is a standard way to plug devices such as network cards into a computer, but PCI Express will enable faster communications when it begins arriving at the end of 2003, its advocates say. The standard will first be used to connect chips within a computer and the graphics subsystem, with high-speed network cards to follow, supporters expect. A draft of PCI Express version 1.0 has been turned over for PCI-SIG's more than 740 members to review, and the final version is expected by a June 3-4 developer conference. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

Intel dishes up new networking chips

Intel announced a chip that lets server- and network-card manufacturers build two 1-gigabit-per-second Ethernet ports into their servers. Most servers today come with network connections one tenth that speed. In addition to the two-port 82546EB chip for servers, Intel released the one-port 82545EM gigabit Ethernet controller chip for workstations and the one-port 82540EM for desktop computers. The chips, currently still in prototype stage, will cost $89.95, $59.95 and $34.95 each. The workstation and server models support the higher-speed PCI-X data-communication standard. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
