Intel recently revealed mobile "Haswell Refresh" processors, and more than 20 desktop CPUs are about to be launched in the next 2 - 3 weeks. Later this quarter Intel will also refresh Xeon E3-1200 v3 family for single-socket workstations. We already published some Xeon E3 model numbers, spotted in one of Intel's Product Change Notifications (PCN). More information recently surfaced in another Intel PCN, that describes changes in the position and the number of capacitors on the bottom of the LGA1150 package, and provides a list of affected SKUs.   [Full story]
Two months ago we reported on upcoming Bay Trail-T refresh, that will be comprised of 9 new Atom-branded systems-on-a-chip. The "Bay Trail-T" is an ultra low power core, built on the latest 22nm process, and used by inexpensive dual- and quad-core processors for tablets. The first wave of these products was launched in September of last year, and consisted on Z3740, Z3740D, Z3770 and Z3770D models. At the beginning of this quarter we should see the second wave of tablet processors, including Atom Z3745, Z3745D, Z3775, Z3775D and Z3795 mid- to high-end models, and Atom Z3735D and Z3735E value SKUs.   [Full story]
In March Intel announced "Desktop Reinvented" strategy, aimed to enhance ease of use and performance of desktop and All-in-One PCs, and expand their range of applications. As a part of that strategy, the company plans to implement new PC form factors, software, products and new technologies. One of the new products will be unlocked "Devilís Canyon" microprocessors for socket 1150. Based on Haswell architecture, the CPUs are going to have improved Thermal Interface Material for better overclocking, and come with updated packaging material. They will replace current "K"-class desktop processors.   [Full story]
More than 15 Haswell-based laptop processors were introduced by Intel this week, which allowed the company to refresh all mobile families beginning from Celeron and up to Core i7. Alongside the mobile chips, the company also released Core i3-4110E, i3-4112E , i5-4410E and i5-4422E embedded CPUs, planned as a replacement for the Core i3-4100E, i3-4102E, i5-4400E and i5-4402E respectively. The new processors feature 200 MHz higher operating frequencies.   [Full story]
AMD is expected to launch "Beema" mobile APUs this year. "Beema" is is the third generation ULV core, that will succeed current "Kabini" core, however it will still make use of 28nm technology. "Beema" accelerated units will have up to 4 CPU cores, GCN graphics, and integrated Security Processor. According to AMD estimates, the APUs will have much better performance per Watt, up to 104%, than "Kabini" products. The actual TDP will depend on SKU, and it will range from 10 Watt to 25 Watt.   [Full story]
Earlier this week Intel added information on "Haswell Refresh" processors to their official pricelist. It is suffice to say that there were no unexpected surprises there, and the new SKUs had exact same prices as the first generation Haswell microprocessors. Although the list included the full line of "Haswell Refresh" desktop CPUs, they will be available only in May, due to their release date being tied to the launch of desktop 9-series chipset. The mobile refresh, on another hand, will work with currently available 8-series mobile chipsets, and for that reason we were not surprised to see new mobile processors in Intel's product database.   [Full story]
Czech website Tyden.cz have published rumored specs for the Maxwell based GTX 880 graphics card. While some of these specs look reasonable on paper, they don't all look like an upgrade compared to the GTX 780 and 780 Ti. There is another rumor that suggests this is not intended as a replacement for the GTX 780 or 780 Ti, suggesting it is more a replacement for the GTX 680.   [Full story]
Intel today added brief specifications and prices of all "Haswell Refresh" desktop and mobile microprocessors to the official pricelist. Built on "Haswell" architecture, upcoming products will not have any new microarchitecture and power optimizations compared to last year's products, and their only advantage will be slightly increased clock speeds. According to known specifications, many "Haswell Refresh" CPUs will be clocked 100 MHz higher than the Haswell 2013 lineup, which will result in up to 2% - 5% better performance, much smaller than we got used to in the past three years.   [Full story]
AMD this week launched low power desktop platform utilizing socket AM1, formerly known as a "socket FS1B". The socket AM1 processors are built on "Kabini" core, which combines "Jaguar" CPU architecture and "Graphics Core Next" GPU architecture, and integrates it all together with all necessary chipset logic on a single system-on-a-chip (SoC). The SoCs have 2 and 4 CPU cores, and the graphics unit comes with 128 shader cores. Feature-wise, new "Kabini" processors are similar to mobile Kabini products with the exception of somewhat higher clocks, and a new PGA type packaging, that simplifies processor upgrade or replacement.   [Full story]
Digitimes reported this week that Intel Haswell Refresh processors will be available next month. That information confirms older reports, like the one published by Hermitage Akihabara back in March. According to Digitimes, Intel originally planned to launch microprocessors in April, and follow with the 9-series desktop in a month. The latest plan is to launch the CPUs together with new chipset in early May. Hermitage Akihabara provided launch date of May 11.   [Full story]
Intel this week released three Quark processors, all featuring extended operating temperature range. New X1001, X1011 and X1021D are qualified to operate from -40°C to +85°C, while offering the same performance and feature-set as Quark X1000, X1010 and X1020D models, that were released in the past two quarters.   [Full story]
Intel is going to retire Atom S1200 microserver processors, and the first Z3700 systems-on-a-chip for tablets. The list of affected models includes Atom S1260, S1240 and S1220, as well as Atom Z3740, Z3740D, Z3770 and Z3770D. All of soon to be discontinued Atoms are based on the Silvermont architecture and manufactured on 22nm technology, however all of them use earlier core steppings B1, B2 or B3.   [Full story]
Intel recently completed transition of Xeon E5 and E7 families to one-generation old Ivy Bridge architecture, and the company is hard at work on the next generation processors, built on the latest Haswell microarchitecture. Similar to Ivy Bridge server lineup, "Haswell" processors will be branded as Xeon E5 and Xeon E7, but their suffix will change from "v2" to "v3". Intel is also going to release new Xeon E3 "Haswell" SKUs, and eventually introduce the next generation E3 microprocessors, utilizing Broadwell architecture.   [Full story]
AMD has announced the Radeon R9 295X2 Graphics card. Powered by the Vesuvius XT GPU, which comprises a pair of Hawaii XT units, this is the dual-GPU powerhouse for the Graphics Core Next based graphics cards. This is a pair of Radeon R9 290X in crossfire, on a single board. It is a power hungry beast, operating well outside the PCI-E power specs, but supplying premium processing power.   [Full story]
Apr 07, 2014   AMD A8-7600 APU delayed
On January 14 AMD launched the first Steamroller-based APUs for socket FM2+ platform, and announced an energy-efficient A8-7600 SKU. The quad-core A8-7600 was a bit slower than the A10-7700K, and did not have the unlocked multiplier. On a positive side, it had about 22% lower price sticker, and supported a "configurable TDP" feature. Rated at 65 Watt when running at stock 3.3 GHz frequency, the APU could be configured to fit into 45 Watt TDP, albeit in this case its base and turbo clocks would be limited to 3.1 GHz and 3.3 GHz respectively.   [Full story]
AMD has launched the FirePRO W9100 professional graphics card. Powered by the same Hawaii XT GPU seen in the Radeon R9 290X, the card runs at a slightly slower core clock speed than its desktop counterpart. It has an unprecedented 16 GB of memory, allowing users to work with much larger internal datasets than previously possible with no sacrifice in performance.   [Full story]
Just two weeks after the launch of the Xeon Phi 7120D co-processor in dense form factor packaging, Intel is ready to introduce another member of the 71xx family. The latest Xeon Phi product, which was added today to Intel's official pricelist, has the model number 7120A. The 7120A is packaged as an add-on card with PCI-Express interface. The co-processor has an active cooling solution on the board, which distinguishes it from the launched last year 7120P (it comes with a passive cooler).   [Full story]
AMD has added the entry level Radeon R5 230 to it's retail graphics card line-up. Previously only available for the OEM market, the R5 230 is a rebrand of the Radeon HD 6450 and HD 7450, albeit with the memory clocked to match the 7450, which is slower than the 6450. The card uses a Caicos Pro GPU, first launched in February 2011, which is powered by the TeraScale 2 Unified Processing Architecture, introduced a year earlier.   [Full story]
Intel last week introduced two entry-level Rangeley C2308 and C2508 processors. The newly launched "Rangeley" chips, together with the original line of C23xx, C25xx and C27xx systems on a chip are positioned as low end offerings for communications and networking embedded devices. The mid-end of the communications/networking market lineup so far was represented by dual- and quad-core Ivy Bridge Gladden processors, available under the Pentium, Core i3 and Xeon E3 brands. Earlier this week Intel released successors of the Ivy Bridge Gladden CPUs, namely Core i5-4402EC, Core i7-4700EC and i7-4702EC.   [Full story]
This week AMD revealed prices of soon to be available socket AM1 Sempron processors. Socket AM1 is a new low-power platform, that combines "Kabini" systems on a chip in an upgradeable PGA package, and an inexpensive motherboard with the minimum amount of logic. The Fusion Controller Hub (FCH), responsible for interfacing between the APU and peripheral devices, on this platform is located on the processor. In theory, this allows owners of such socket AM1 boards to upgrade not only the CPU/GPU, but also the chipset.   [Full story]
Intel prepares to refresh Haswell desktop processors in the second and the third quarters of 2014. The "K" CPUs with unlocked multiplier are expected in Q3, and the microprocessors with locked multiplier will be released a quarter earlier. It was reported that the non-"K" chips will run a bit faster than current generation of Haswell products, and they will be compatible with existing 8-series and future 9-series chipsets. In February we published complete list of Haswell Refresh processors, that will be launched in Q2.   [Full story]
Intel recently expanded Core i5 family with a new low power microprocessor, dubbed as Core i5-4460T. In our February's story (linked below) we listed it along with Haswell desktop refresh SKUs, anticipated to arrive in the second quarter 2014. However, the i5-4460T is not a speed bump of existing product, and that may explain why it was released earlier than the refresh processors.   [Full story]
Intel this week introduced two systems on a chip from Atom C2000 series, aimed at networking and communications markets. New products, Atom C2308 and C2508, are built on the latest 22nm microarchitecture, incorporate up to 4 CPU cores, and support QuickAssist technology. Although the chips come with reduced clock speeds compared to older family members, their main advantage is not a performance, but a lower TDP at the same price point.   [Full story]
Intel prepares to launch the second wave of Atom "Bay Trail-T" products for Android and Windows 8.1 tablets. New Atom Z37x5 lineup will boost graphics performance by as much as 16%, and offer greater variety of SKUs, from budget-oriented Z3735E and up to the new flagship Z3795. The lineup will be comprised of at least 9 different models, most of which were planned to launch this quarter or at the beginning of the second quarter. We now have detailed specifications of seven SKUs, including Atom Z3735D, Z3735E, Z3745, Z3745D, Z3775, Z3775D and Z3795.   [Full story]
Last week a user "Randylahey" in hardwarecanucks.com forum purchased a used AMD CPU, and, as it turned out, it was a never seen before FX-670K model. The most peculiar thing is that the processor uses socket FM2. As expected for the FX brand, the CPU has the integrated GPU disabled. The chip was removed from HP Pavilion 500-266ea desktop PC, but it is identified as the FX-670K even on non-HP retail motherboards.   [Full story]
NVidia unveiled the upcoming GeForce GTX Titan-Z at their annual GPU Technology Conference. Billed as a supercomputer that will fit under your desk, the card includes two fully enabled GK110 GPUs. NVidia say it is engineered for next-generation 5K and multi-monitor gaming. They also say that, unlike other dual-GPU cards, the two GPUs are tuned to run at the same clock speeds, which they claim is not the case for traditional dual-GPU cards.   [Full story]
