(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 announced the next generation of its Atom netbook processors, dubbed "Pine Trail," which feature integrated graphics built directly into the CPU, improved performance and a smaller, more energy- efficient design.
Intel is revamping its Atom processor platform in a move that will yield more powerful netbooks, better efficiency and smaller designs. Will Intel set off another netbook boom?
Smaller, smaller, smaller!That seems to be the vibe over at Intel, which recently decided to skip production of 45-nanometer Havendale CPUs and will go directly to 32nm Clarkdale because development for the chips is going smoothly, according to sources at motherboard makers in a DigiTimes report.
Intel has joined the fight against Psion over the "netbook" trademark, arguing that the public already uses the term in a generic manner to represent "extensions of the notebook category, smaller computers purpose-built for mobile Internet access," according to the Courthouse News Service.
Intel says alternative methods of radically increasing the performance of CPUs are years away, as the focus remains on incremental improvements to get smaller and more efficient chips

Intel launched their brand new 45nm mobile dual-core processors last week with 60% smaller packaging size. Yesterday Apple announced their Über-sleek MacBook Air ultra-slim notebook which also uses a specially designed Intel dual-core CPU with 60% smaller packaging.
At Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, Intel CEO Paul Otellini talks about keeping pace with Moore's Law by developing processor technologies that minimize power usage and allow chips to be made smaller.
Rob Willoner, a technology analyst at Intel, explains how smaller and more energy-efficient transistors are resulting in faster and more powerful CPUs

We all want smaller and faster computers. Of course, this increases the complexity of the work of computer designers. But now, computer scientists from the University of Virginia are coming with a radical new idea which "may revolutionize computer design." They've developed Tortola, a virtual interface that enables hardware and software to communicate and to solve problems together. This approach can be applied to get a better performance from a specific system. It also can be used in the areas of security or power consumption. And it soon could be commercialized with the help of IBM and Intel.
Intel is ramping up its 45-nanometer generation of chips, which will result in smaller, faster and more energy efficient chips. Tom Krazit covers the announcement: The Penryn chips are the first iteration of the new manufacturing strategy outlined by [Intel CEO Paul] Otellini earlier this year.
At the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Intel CEO PaulOtellini said that to reach 1 billion units shipped per year, the PCindustry will need to produce quieter, more energy-efficient machineswith a smaller form factor. Cost structures will need to come down too.Otellini spoke with Gartner analysts Ken Delaney and Steve Kleynhansabout Intel's restructuring in light of these shifts.
Intel Mobile Group's Sean Maloney, speaking at the spring 2006edition of the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, says several newminitablets are expected to appear on the market within weeks. Maloneysays the drive toward smaller PCs is being combined with moves towardless power consumption.
commentary What technologies are chip manufacturers using to create smaller and smaller chips?The general perversity of the universe has conspired to ensure that I do not deliver the promised performance comparison between the AMD Athlon 64 and Intel "Prescott" this month.
The open-source project founded by IBM becomes an independent organization and announces a new board, including IBM, Intel, SAP, Ericcson and smaller companies.
Intel rival Advanced Micro Devices turns in a smaller-than-expected first-quarter loss, thanks to sequential improvements in processor and flash memory sales.
Merrill Lynch has signed a deal to standardize on VMware software for dividing a single Intel server into several effective machines, the companies plan to announce Monday. The financial services company is using VMware's "virtual machine" software for several tasks, including consolidating several smaller servers onto a single, more powerful machine.
