It's taken longer than expected, but Intel has finally officially released the first CPUs using its Broadwell architecture. The new processors enable the holy grail of mobile computing: full PC power in a completely fanless package.
The 'ultrabook' concept was announced by Intel earlier this year. The idea is to marry second-generation Core processors and sleek, slim hardware designs to deliver computing muscle without weight, and good looks without compromising on capabilities.
The MIT offshoot, which designs chips that scale from 16 to 100 distinct compute cores, is taking on Intel in processors for cloud-computing tasks such as analysis of big data
Nvidia has released the latest in its range of Tesla GPUs, which are general purpose graphical processors designed to handle supercomputing calculations.The Tesla M2090 GPU, announced by the company on Tuesday, contains 512 Cuda cores that are designed to work in parallel on typical high-performance computing (HPC) tasks, such as the simulation of microscopic biological interactions.
LAS VEGAS - Intel today unveiled the second generation of its Core processors - codenamed "Sandy Bridge" - playing up the visual elements that will create a new experience in computing, the company said.In a standing-room-only press conference at the Venetian Hotel, company CEO Paul Otellini talked about the next evolution of the PC and the push into evolving categories, including televisions, cars, digital signs and home automation systems.

Programming challenges will limit the use of graphics processors in enterprise servers in the future, according to high-performance computing development directors
Programming challenges will limit use of graphics processors in enterprise servers in near future, say industry players who add that GPUs are finding its niche in high-performance computing.
The ISACTRL and WSPSRV Services Do Not Start When You Install ISA Server 2004 Standard Edition on a Multiprocessor Computer (884569)
Microsoft ISA Server 2004 Standard Edition is designed to run on servers with up to four processors (when licensed individually). However,...
This post starts as a throwback to the utility and grid computing applications that used to dominate headlines.The high-performance grid in question is Purdue University's DiaGrid, which aggregates the idle compute power of 28,000 processors at the university and on campuses in Indiana, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
The company has introduced the 4100 series four and six-core processors, aimed at cloud computing and small and medium-sized enterprises
Combining the latest Intel XEON processors with new generation NVIDIA GPUs gives IBM an out-of-the-box hybrid computing solution for HPC with a server design that meets the needs of the green datacenter.
We’re at Intel’s ISTEP software event in Barcelona, getting a deep dive into the world of parallel computing. It’s an interesting place to be, as the physics of silicon has put an end to the seemingly constant increase in speed and power of processors.
The new servers use Intel's Xeon 5600 and 7500 processors and are part of Cisco's Unified Computing System
The company has introduced four servers designed for intense computing environments, based on Intel's Nehalem-EX and AMD's Opteron processors
Intel rolled out high-end Xeon server processors that promise three times the performance over previous versions. The plan is to democratize high performance computing.
The new Opteron processors are aimed at the high-performance computing and virtualisation markets
The Worldwide Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid, which can draw on the computing power of more than 100,000 processors, was officially launched on Friday
The Worldwide Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid, which can draw on the computing power of more than 100,000 processors, was officially launched on Friday.
A supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) recently piloted a laser to perform prostate surgery on a dog. The operation was done in Houston without the intervention of a human surgeon while the Lonestar supercomputer, a Dell Linux Cluster with 5,840 processors, was in Austin. According to TACC, 'the procedure was the culmination of three years of research and development into the algorithms, computer codes, imaging technology, and cyberinfrastructure.' Please note that even if the intervention was a success, the dog ultimately died. But the researchers are confident that their approach could lead to specific treatments in five to ten years for humans. In fact, they think this is the future of surgery, bringing engineering tools into medicine. Fascinating research!!! But read more...
The QS22 uses a mix of cell processors on blade technology to bring high-performance computing to small and medium-sized businesses
AMD, a company that has been struggling to compete meaningfully with Intel in the last year, announced new "highly efficient" quad-core processors for blade and rack servers. With energy costs increasing drastically (and no relief in sight), schools looking to shave costs, as well as green their IT departments, can make use of centralized computing solutions that save energy and reduce management costs.
