Once the backbone of Intel's desktop processor lineup, the Pentium brand has since become a value line, sitting between the budget Celeron family and the better performing Core i3 series. Now the chip giant is refreshing its Pentiums with a trio of new CPUs based on the Sandy Bridge platform, releasing them on May 22 according to Fudzilla.
A Chinese Web site has posted a slide showing a new Intel chipset that's designed to work with the company's forthcoming Sandy Bridge E processors ("E" standing for "enthusiast"). The X79 Express will replace the X58 as the top desktop chipset when the new high-performance CPUs are launched in the fourth quarter of this year.
Online reports suggest that Apple will be moving the MacBook Air to the recently launched Intel Sandy Bridge chipset in June.The shift will be part of a summer refresh for the line-up that is essentially using the same processor — in this case, an Intel Core 2 Duo — as when the MacBook Air was announced in January 2008, ZDNet UK sister-site CNET News said in a report citing sources "familiar with Apple's plans".
The company will resume shipments of its second-generation Intel Core processor, just a week after it found a design flaw that hurts performance
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.
Dell and HP are also among the PC makers that have responded to the Intel Cougar Point chipset bug by revealing which models are affected and telling buyers what their options are
At a demo of Moorestown, Intel's first chipset for handsets, the company touted its power consumption as low for the performance on offer
While it's fun to benchmark the latest Intel "Extreme" processor and hear about the performance tweaks that have been implemented over the previous iteration, the fact is that most buyers can't afford to drop $1,000 on a CPU, or even $200-$300 for its still-powerful but more affordable siblings.
The company's latest chipset is based on its Core i-series processor, and gives enhanced PC remote-control capabilities to IT support workers
The low-power platform, formerly code-named Fiorano, offers server builders a combination of a six-core Opteron with a choice of three chipsets from AMD
Intel's executive reshuffle has its roots in an unfortunate decision nearly 10 years ago, when the chipmaker went with a system-on-a-chip design for Timna
The company is bolstering its Nehalem lineup with Core i7 CPUs for high-performance PCs and Xeons for small business
Intel offered a sneak peek Monday afternoon at some news it plans to announce today at the Computex show in Taiwan. The company said it will introduce three new Intel Core 2 Duo processors, a new ultra low voltage Pentium processor and a new mobile chipset.
OK, OK, we've all heard a gazillion and one things this week about why Nehalem, er the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, is like, a total breakthrough in terms of energy efficiency. Intel calls the chip its most revolutionary product in the past 15 years (shades of Pentium) and all manner of software companies, including Sun Microsystems, are falling all over themselves to optimize their operating systems or applications for the platform.
VIA, the X86 processor platform manufacturer, today announced its Surfboard C855 Reference Design, a compact mainboard incorporating the VIA C7-M ULV processor and the new VIA VX855 unified IGP chipset that has been specifically designed for easy integration into devices targeted at the rapidly growing mini-notebook, or netbook, market.
The eagle-eyed folks over at Hexus has spotted a Gigabyte GA-IBP at CeBIT. So what's so special about this board? It's a P55 chipset, socket LGA1156 motherboard for Intel's upcoming Core i5 processor.
The chip manufacturer says ARM-based architecture could eventually seize up to half of the netbook market from its x86-based rival
Intel confirmed on Thursday that it is shipping the Atom N280 processor to PC manufacturers, which is intended to bring improved performance and graphics to Netbooks.The new single-core Atom processor is paired with a chipset that allows users to watch high-definition content on Netbooks while drawing less power.
The chipset bundle, which includes the Athlon Neo processor, is aimed at laptops that are larger and have better components than netbooks, but are cheaper than ultraportables
