The new quad-core and six-core chips cost under $150, while the company cuts pricing on 10 other CPUs.
Apple, like most PC makers, buys its PC processors from Intel. So why is Intel funding competitors to one of its largest customers? Apple should ask for $400 million off its next Intel CPU order.
Yesterday, we reported that product names and specs have leaked about Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge desktop processors. Now information about their mobile counterparts has been revealed as well, including a new Extreme Edition chip and new CPUs for Ultrabooks.
Today is the day that Intel widens the CPU performance gap between itself and AMD with the release of Sandy Bridge-E processors, an update of its Extreme Edition chips using the company's latest and greatest microarchitecture.The centerpiece of the new rollout is the Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition, a six-core 3.
The long-awaited day for AMD fanboys has arrived. The chip company has finally released its first Bulldozer desktop processors under the FX series name, including a flagship eight-core CPU that's priced at just $245.

It looks like Intel may have a two-pronged approach to combating the imminent debut of AMD's new Bulldozer desktop processors. Not only does the company plan to release its new Sandy Bridge-E "extreme" chips a few weeks after Bulldozer's launch, but it also appears to have another CPU up its sleeve to send out against AMD's new FX series.
As AMD works to ready its new Bulldozer desktop processors for release next month, it may be planning to price them even lower than initially thought. While the top FX series chip was once expected at around $320, CPU World reports that the eight-core FX-8150 was priced for pre-order at one online retailer for just $266.

Version 2.5 of the company's Accelerated Parallel Processing OpenCL toolkit lets developers tap into AMD's A-Series Fusion processors with faster CPU-to-GPU data throughput
The first reviews are in for AMD's new A8-3850 Llano accelerated processing unit (APU), which combines CPU and GPU cores on a single die, and the big question is: Can this $135 chip offer a viable alternative to Intel's lower-end Sandy Bridge processors?The answer: Yes, it can, but with a few caveats.
AMD's new A-series, or "Llano," Accelerated Processing Units -- which combine CPU cores with Radeon HD graphics cores on a single chip -- is off to a good start with HP's announcement that a whopping 11 different Pavilion and ProBook laptops will offer the new processors starting either later this month or in July.Unfortunately, HP hasn't disclosed which APUs will be available for which laptops, but the company has announced the particular laptop families that will support Llano.
AMD has officially launched its next-generation of processors with HP announcing on the same day a range of laptops built around the blended CPU and GPU processors
With the imminent release of new desktop CPUs, including the new FX and A series, AMD is taking the inevitable step of slashing the pricing on its existing processors to clear out inventory. If you want a bargain on a slightly older CPU, now may be the time to strike.
AMD's first Fusion processors--chips that combine both a CPU and graphics--have been finding their way into everything from netbooks to 15-inch budget notebooks. Over the past few weeks, I've been testing out a number of these Fusion laptops including the Acer Aspire One 522, HP Pavilion dm1z and Lenovo ThinkPad X120e.
Having made inroads in the consumer laptop space, Samsung is now looking to expand its corporate notebook footprint, announcing three new lines of enterprise laptops that will be available starting next month.The Series 2, 4 and 6 portables feature Intel Sandy Bridge processors, though only Series 6 models can get something more powerful than a Core i3 CPU.
In efforts to wean country off foreign processors, government mandates Chinese supercomputer research organizations must use domestically developed CPU chips by end-2011, according to local news report.
Getting a jump on Intel, AMD announced its first Fusion processors on the eve of CES 2011. Like Intel's Sandy Bridge processors, AMD's Accelerated Processing Units combine a CPU and a graphics processor on a single die, but these low-power APUs are designed for different sorts of laptops, netbooks and desktops.
For those who want serious performance without spending hundreds of dollars on Intel's Core i7 processors, AMD offers the Phenom II X6 CPU series -- six cores for under $300. Intel's rival has just delivered a new version, the 1100T Black Edition, that benchmarking sites have found to be the fastest desktop processor AMD has released to date.
Intel will unveil its range of Sandy Bridge processors at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, according to reports.Sandy Bridge will likely provide a graphics boost over current Intel chipsets, as it will integrate the GPU component of those chipsets onto the same silicon as the CPU — this should provide power consumption and speed advantages over current Intel processors, which have 45nm-manufactured GPUs alongside 32nm-manufactured CPUs.
AMD expands processor line, announces two new processors - a Phenom II X2 and a Phenom II X6 part.
If you're looking for a new CPU to build a system around, AMD has just dropped a half dozen onto the marketplace, including a new six-core Phenom II.The new processors comprise three Athlon II chips and a trio of Phenom II parts.
