Intel T9900 Core 2 Duo Notebook processor breaks 3GHz

Posted in Intel by Conner Flynn on June 2nd, 2009

Intel T9900 Core 2 Duo Notebook processor breaks 3GHz It’s no surprise that Intel unveiled a bunch of new processors at Computex. The T9900, P9700, P8800, SU2700 processors and GS40 chipset. The T9900 Core 2 Duo stands out from the crowd, clocked at a fast 3.06 GHz, which makes it the first Penryn-based Core 2 Duo chip to accomplish that. The P9700 and P8800 are “performance kickers” that pack a whole lot of super-fast cache memory.

The SU2700 is aimed at ultra-thin laptops, which is where Intel predicts a “boom” this year. Decent performance and low-power is the key here.

Intel announces new Atom Processors

Posted in Intel by Shane McGlaun on April 8th, 2009

intel-logo-sbIt’s hard to believe that with the popularity and adoption rate of netbooks today that the devices only hit the market at the end of 2007. At the beginning of the netbook revolution the machines lacked a purpose built CPU for their portable nature. However, it didn’t take long for Intel to offer a CPU just for the class with its Atom line.

Intel is celebrating the 1-year anniversary of the Atom processor by announcing a pair of new Atom parts. The high-end part is the Z550 and the bad boy runs at 2GHz and features Intel’s hyper threading technology. All of that performance is crammed into a power envelope of 3 watts so it shouldn’t be a battery killer.

Posted in Intel by Shane McGlaun on February 6th, 2009

Newegg Intel SSD DealIt wasn’t so long ago that adding a SSD to your computer meant $1000 or more in additional costs. Buying a SSD to add as an upgrade was only marginally cheaper with even small capacity SSDs selling in the $800 range.

SSD prices are coming down quickly in part thanks to the technology getting cheaper and in part due to the poor global economy putting price pressure on manufacturers. Intel’s X25-M SSD can now be had on Newegg.com for under $370.

Intel to consolidate manufacturing operations

Posted in Intel by Shane McGlaun on January 22nd, 2009

Intel LogoWe all know the global economy is bad, consumers have less money to spend, fewer computers are sold, and thus less CPUs are needed putting Intel and other chipmakers in a bad spot. Intel has announced that it will begin measures that will help it face the challenging economy in America.

Intel says that it will consolidate its manufacturing operations by cutting its capacity to match the current economy. In other words, it’s cutting production and doing so by closing up some of its older tech manufacturing plants.

NVIDIA IonIntel and NVIDIA aren’t exactly the best of friends. Just when things were looking up in the relationship thanks to NVIDIA allowing SLI on the Intel X58 chipset, NVIDIA ousts Intel as the GPU of choice in the new MacBooks.

A rumor circulated around the Internet that claimed Intel may be looking to kill NVIDIA’s new Ion platform that combines the Intel Atom CPU with an NVIDIA 9400 GPU. The rumor had Intel only selling the Atom CPU with its 945 chipset.

Ericsson and Intel developing Laptop kill switch

Posted in Intel by Conner Flynn on December 11th, 2008

Ericsson and Intel developing Laptop kill switchThere’s always the chance that someone may steal your laptop and enjoy a nice relaxing day of browsing through your digital life. The very idea sucks, but Ericsson and Intel are developing a solution. The two companies are working on a remote kill switch for laptops.

Outfitted with both HSPA and GPS, the laptop can be SMS disabled and also globally located if stolen. A disabled laptop cannot be booted while third party software can handle aspects of extra data encryption. A thief with some tech know-how may be able to get around some or all of these measures, but at least this would be a deterrent to theft.

Intel SSDsThe SSD offers some nice benefits to the notebook users like increased battery life, faster boot times, and quieter operation. The catch is that at this time SSDs are significantly more expensive than comparable hard drives and the storage capacity of the typical SSD is low.

Intel has jumped into the SSD market with the introduction of a pair of SSDs aimed at consumers. The new SSDs include the X18-M and the X25-M. The X18-M is a 1.8-inch drive and the X25-M is a more traditional 2.5-inch size drive. Intel says that the improved performance of the SSD helps reduce bottlenecks between its CPUs and the storage system. This is the SSD used in the HP system claiming 24-hours of runtime.

Posted in Intel by Shane McGlaun on April 3rd, 2008

Intel Classmate: The Next GenerationThe idea of putting notebook computers into the hands of kids around the world to allow them to improve their education is a noble thought. The field was pioneered by the OLPC with its XO Notebook and an early partner with the OLPC was Intel.

Once Intel caught a glimpse of what the market could be for ultra low cost notebooks it entered the fray with its own low cost notebook called the Classmate. Intel announced today that it has the second generation Classmate ready for use around the world.

Intel unveils new processors with 45nm Penryn chips

Posted in Intel,News,Processors by Darrin Olson on November 12th, 2007

Intel launches Penryn processes with smaller 45nm chipsOn Sunday Intel launched new processors with smaller chips that go by the name Penryn that are produced with a 45 nanometer process which is significantly smaller than the 65 nanometer process used today. Intel announced plans for this launch earlier this fall which introduces such small circuitry thirty million of these 45nm-wide circuits could fit on the head of a pin.

There are multiple advantages to this smaller design. First, the smaller circuits allow Intel to create more chips using the same single platter of silicon making overall production more efficient and Intel is expecting as much as a 15 percent increase in processing speed with the new design. It also currently puts them undeniably in front of rival Advanced Micro Design in an ongoing head-to-head battle for the fastest and most efficient processors. AMD launched 65 nm chips earlier in the year as well as a triple core processor, and plans to also have 45nm chips in production by next year.

Intel and others form the USB 3.0 Promoter Group plan to provide 10x faster USB connectionsIntel along with HP, Microsoft Corporation, NEC Corporation, NXP Semiconductors and Texas Instruments Incorporated have announced the formation of the USB 3.0 Promoters Group with a goal of creating the next generation of USB interconnect for use with PC’s and other mobile and consumer gadgets.

As need for increased storage continues to grow along with larger file sizes, the need for a faster connection becomes increasingly important. The USB 3.0 will create a new standard that will be backwards compatible to support existing USB 2.0 and 1.1 connections while providing the ability to transfer data at 10 times the current speed available with USB 2.0.

Intel Plans 45nm “Penryn” Chips for November

Posted in Intel,News,Processors by Chris Weber on September 18th, 2007

Intel plans a November launch for its next generation of chips code named PenrynIntel announced today at the Intel Developer Forum in San Fancisco that the companies next generation of processors, code named “Penryn”, are slated to start hitting the streets November 12. This announcement continues to fuel the race between Intel and rival chip maker Advanced Micro Devices, who within the last week unveiled new quad-core and triple-core processors.

The new Penryn chips from Intel promise a 20 percent performance boost along with improved energy efficiencies over the current chips available. The new Penryn’s are able to achieve faster processing with less energy due to the companies new 45 nanometer manufacturing process, which creates ridiculously small circuitry that’s only 45 billionth of a meter wide. Thirty million of these circuits could fit on the head of a single pin. Moving ahead to the 45 nanometer production gives Intel an additional edge over AMD in the processor manufacturing race since both companies currently product chips using 65 nanometer construction.

Intel releases its Tigerton

Posted in Intel,Processors by Chetz on September 5th, 2007

microprocessor.jpgIntel unveiled six new chips today that raise the industry’s benchmark for how fast quad-core processors can run handling multi-processor servers. Translated from geek speak, these chips run amazingly fast but you don’t need them for your home PC. However, they will help the companies that handle your banking, phone service, cable provider and so on.

The sextet of Quad-Core Xeon 7300 series processors, dubbed Tigerton, deliver more than twice the performance and more than three times the performance per watt over Intel’s earlier generation of dual-core clips. The fastest model is the X7350 running at 2.93GHz, 8M bytes of shared on-chip cache and a thermal design power of 130 watts. The next fastest is the E7340 at 2.4 GHz and the same 8M cache followed by the E7330 at 2.4 GHz (6M cache). Next follows the E7320 and E7310 with both having 4M bytes of shared cache and pace along at processing speeds of 2.13GHz and 1.6GHz, respectively. Finally there is the L7345 at 1.86GHz and a 8M cache, designed exclusively for blade servers and high-density rack servers.

Intel Joins OLPC Initiative

Posted in Intel,News,OLPC by Chris Weber on July 14th, 2007

Intel joins OLPC intiative to provide laptops to 3rd world childrenOn Friday Intel announced that it will join Nicholas Negroponte and his One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) initiative to provide inexpensive computers to the children of developing nations. This announcement came as somewhat of a surprise to many since Intel also has a similar, what some might say competing, initiative with its Classmate PC.

The Classmate PC from Intel is priced at $225 and requires external power, while the OLPC machine, originally targeted for $100, is now costing $175 and is powered by cranking a handle on the side.

Intel may have gotten a “can’t beat ‘em – join ‘em” attitude, or it could be that both companies simply realized that they both had the same goal and could possibly achieve a greater good by combining forces. There are speculations that the two products may go …
