CPU

AMD has officially announced its newest E-Series APUs (codename Brazos 2.0), which was specially designed for low-cost computers, such as netbooks and inexpensive notebooks.

These APUs are based on the “Bobcat” core (40 nm) and comes with an integrated AMD Radeon HD 7000 series GPU (DirectX 11) and a single-channel DDR3 memory controller. The Fusion controller hub (FCH) supports two USB 3.0 ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, three Serial ATA-600 ports, and one PCI Express 2.0 x4 slot.

E-Series APUs also includes AMD Steady Video technology that removes shakes and jitters from online or other video files; AMD Quick Stream technology which prioritizes Internet bandwidth towards video stream buffering or online gaming for a smoother, virtually uninterrupted browsing experience; and provides up to 36 percent longer battery life compared to the competition, enabling up to 11 hours of battery life.

CPU

Today, AMD announced the 2nd-generation A-Series APUs, codenamed “Trinity.” APUs, or Accelerated Processing Units, is what AMD calls their processors with integrated video.

The 2nd-Generation A-Series APUs are built in a 32-nm process, like their predecessor “Llano,” but AMD did a great job increasing CPU performance up to 29 percent and graphics performance up to 56 percent over the previous generation. Power consumption is also improved over Llano, which resulted in up to 12 hours of battery life. Trinity APUs include an integrated accelerated video decode (UVD) to optimize video quality available and accelerate video file conversion, and a AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series GPU. In the table below are the models launched and their main specs.

Intel Launches Ivy Bridge CPUs with vPro Technology
Author: Cássio Lima Date: May 15, 2012 - 4:13 PM PST

CPU

Intel has just launched its first 22-nm processors (based on the Ivy Bridge architecture) featuring Intel’s vPro technology.

Intel’s vPro technology provides IT managers with a collection of security and manageability features, including remote access to the PC independent of the state of the operating system or that of the computer’s power. The newest vPro processors include an identity protection technology with public key infrastructure (Intel IPT with PKI), which provides a new second layer of authentication embedded into the PC that allows websites and business networks to validate that a legitimate user is logging on from a trusted PC by using a private key stored in a PC’s firmware. In addition, the chipset has Intel’s Secure Key, a hardware-based random number generator that businesses can use to encrypt applications, OS Guard malware detection and prevention technology, and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) Deep Command, which is designed to allow remote patching.

In the table below are the Ivy Bridge CPUs with vPro technology.

Intel Launches CPU Replacement Plan for Overclockers
Author: Cássio Lima Date: January 19, 2012 - 9:23 AM PST
Category: CPU
More Info: http://click.intel.com/tuningplan/
CPU

Overclocking is a technique that enables a given hardware part to operate at a clock frequency above its default frequency, thus increasing its performance. This technique is not recommended by the manufacturers and voids the product’s warranty.

Well, the good news for enthusiasts who like to overclock their processors is that Intel has launched a service called the “Performance Tuning Protection Plan.” This plan will provide certain out-of-warranty service offerings in the event of damage caused by overclocking or over-voltaging by the user. By purchasing this plan and meeting the plan’s criteria, the user can receive a one-time replacement processor if the user’s over-voltaging or overclocking causes the original processor to fail. This plan in no way expands, changes or extends the original three year standard warranty and is simply a plan the user may want to purchase for overclocking or over-voltaging.

The Performance Tuning Protection Plan covers the following chips:

  • Core i5-2500K: USD 20 (Plan price)
  • Core i7-2600K: USD 25
  • Core i7-2700K: USD 25
  • Core i7-3930K: USD 35
  • Core i7-3960X: USD 35

Intel Announces Atom ”Cedar Trail“ CPUs
Author: Cássio Lima Date: December 29, 2011 - 9:06 AM PST
Category: CPU
More Info: http://newsroom.intel.com/community/intel_newsroom/blog/2011/12/28/int...
CPU

Intel has finally introduced their third-generation Atom processors, the 32 nm chips codenamed Cedar Trail.

The new Intel Atom processors offer a few significant advantages over current generation chips, including the aforementioned 32 nm process, a media engine that enables full 1080p high-definition playback of videos and Blu-Ray content, and an integrated memory controller supporting DDR3-800/1066 memory. These chips also support Intel Wireless Display, Intel Wireless Music, Rapid Start Technology and the Smart Connect Technology capabilities.

Four processors were launched, two for netbooks (Atom N2600 and N2800) and two for entry-level all-in-one desktops (Atom D2500 and D2700). The N2600 and N2800 are clocked at 1.60 GHz and 1.86 GHz, respectively, while the D2500 and D2700 are clocked at 1.83 GHz and 2.13 GHz, respectively. All these chips feature two cores.

Systems using the new Intel Atom “Cedar Trail” processor from Acer, Asus, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba will debut in early 2012.
