A new Chromebook 2 configuration features a Bay Trail Celeron processor instead of Samsung's Exynos chip, while Dell's Chromebook 11 gets a Core i3 Haswell CPU option.
The updated $299.99 Chromebook 14 is powered by Nvidia's Tegra K1 processor, while the refreshed Chromebook 11 uses an Intel Celeron Bay Trail CPU and starts at $279.99.
AMD sets a date for the release of its combined CPU/GPU Kaveri processor and details how AMD's heterogeneous system architecture will allow microservers to handle new workloads.
The reasons why Apple put a 64-bit processor inside the iPhone 5s goes way beyond hype. While the applications for it might be limited right now, Apple is paving the way for improvements that we'll see trickle into the iPhone over the next few years.
In his keynote, Intel exec Dadi Perlmutter said that the company was once focused on CPUs but has evolved to focus on platforms and experiences. That may be true, but the star of the show was still a CPU, specifically the 4th-generation Core processor, code-named Haswell, due out next year.
The tower equivalent of the rack-mounted R720, Dell's PowerEdge T620 sports the same processor, RAM and management options plus even more flexible storage. It's a powerful and versatile platform that can cope with everything from standard file and print duties through distributed branch office applications to private cloud deployment.
Stratus Technologies just launched a new version of its Avance high availability platform that supports Intel Xeon E5 “Sandy Bridge” processor-powered servers, such as those offered by HP, IBM, Dell and Intel. This technology is designed to make it possible for customers to know that their applications will operate without interruption. The problem? Stratus is known and loved by only a small circle of friends.
Intel hasn't had much luck to date with its system-on-chip designs for living room set-top boxes, but that hasn't stopped the chip giant from rolling out a new processor for the next generation of connected home theater devices.The Atom CE5300 Media Processor, code-named Berryville, is the first 32nm CPU Intel has offered for set-top boxes and "smart" TVs.
Graphene may be a wonder material, poised to revolutionise the electronics industry; with applications far beyond the humble CPU. But it isn’t magic.
The additional protection plans offered by electronics companies are often of dubious value to consumers, but Intel has just launched one that may be a good value if you like to tweak your processor.Its new Performance Tuning Protection Plan is designed to provide a replacement CPU in the event of "failures caused by operating the eligible processor outside of Intel’s published specifications" -- i.
Long rumored as Intel's first response to AMD's Bulldozer platform, the new Core i7-2700K processor has been officially launched as the fastest Sandy Bridge desktop chip. The quad-core CPU should already widen the performance gap between the Bulldozer flagship FX-8150 and Sandy Bridge's high end, though at an approximate price of $330 (according to CPU World), the i7-2700K is nearly $100 more expensive.
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
Building applications that take advantage of low-cost, powerful multi-processor computers is not always easy. That's changing and businesses with benefit from this if solution providers take advantage of new programming technologies.
While time is running down on 2011 being the year of Bulldozer, AMD is looking to next year to be the year of Piledriver. A leaked roadmap shows the chip company's desktop plans for 2012, and these include a processor that features 10 Piledriver CPUs, which will be improved versions of the forthcoming Bulldozer CPU.
Chip designer Tilera has unveiled a low-power processor that can scale between 36 and 100 cores and is aimed at cloud applications
So we know that AMD has delayed production slightly for its new eight-core "Zambezi" processor, that it's rolling out the FX brand again for the unlocked eight-core Bulldozer CPU, and that it will even deliver that CPU in a tin box. (See my earlier post from today.
Linaro and Samsung have announced a low cost board for developers keen on rapidly prototypying Linux and Android applications on ARM.The Origen board, announced on Monday, contains a 45nm dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, a multi-core Mali400GPU and 1GB of DDR3 memory.
With the Core i7-990X Extreme Edition six-core processor, Intel has reached the end of the road with its Gulftown platform. Before Ivy Bridge rumbles into the picture next year, the chip giant will be releasing a six-core desktop CPU based on its current platform, the Sandy Bridge E ("E" for "extreme," of course).
Intel Core i7-990X officially launches: Maingear, CyberPower add it to their gaming PCs, Core i7-960/970 prices chopped
If you followed my posts over the weekend, you could probably figure out what happened on Monday: Intel officially acknowledged the release of its six-core Core i7-990X Extreme Edition processor, its fastest (and most expensive) desktop CPU. That led to some additional PC manufacturers adding it to their systems, as well as some well-needed price cuts on a couple of older Core i7s.
