Intel recently launched their latest Atom C3000 “Denverton” CPUs based on the 14nm FinFET Goldmont architecture for low power applications such as networking, storage, and IoT.
Featuring between 2 to 16 cores and clock frequencies between 1.5GHz to 2.2GHz, the Intel Atom C3000 is a powerhouse of a chip with the flagship 16-core chip capable of outperforming the previous generation Intel Atom C2750 by 2.3x.
Additionally, the Atom C3000 is also capable of supporting ECC memory, virtualization (including Intel VT-d), 10 GbE Ethernet, Intel QuickAssist technology, power consumption as low as 8.5w, and for networking applications, up to 19Mpps of Layer 3 [...]
Intel’s collaboration with Micron to develop 3D XPoint storage has been a long time in the works and for the first time, we’re getting a concrete idea of how Intel’s upcoming Optane 3D XPoint-based enterprise SSDs will perform.
According to a recently leaked spec sheet by Chinese technology website, Techbang, the upcoming Intel Optane DC P4800X a very admirable drive. Coming in the HHHL form factor, the Optane DC P4800X features up to 375TB of storage and features the PCIe NVMe interface which allows for sequential read/write speed of up to 2,400/2,000MB/s, and 4K random performance up to 550,000/550,000 IOPS respectively.
What’s really [...]
Remember the slide Intel recently presented at their annual investor day conference that may have looked a bit strange? The one above where it shows “ADVANCING MOORE’S LAW ON 14nm” with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 right underneath showing a >15% performance increase in SysMark? While many have chalked it up to a typo, it seems like it actually confirms that not all of Intel’s upcoming 8th Generation processors may be manufactured on Intel’s 10nm manufacturing node.
In a recent tweet sent out by Motley Fool Senior Technology Specialist, Ashraf Eassa, Eassa had some interesting bits to share about his experience at the investor [...]
Although AMD’s Ryzen CPU is the hot topic of the tech world at the moment, let’s not forget about Intel, which recently launched their new beast of a processor, the Xeon E7-8894 v4.
Designed for scale-up workloads in an enterprise environment, the new 14nm Broadwell based Xeon E7-8894 v4 is a socket FCLGA2011 socket processor featuring a clock speed of 2.4GHz with boost clocks up to 3.4GHz, support for a whopping 24TB of DDR4 ECC memory, a monstrous 60MB of onboard cache, and a whopping 24-cores with Hyper-Threading allowing it to crunch up to 48-threads simultaneously all at a TDP of 165W.
Want one? Yeah, me too. The Intel Xeon E7-8894 v4 is [...]
Although AMD’s Ryzen chips are the hot topic at least until their launch either end of this month or early next month, Intel recently held their investor day to convince investors why it’s still a great idea to invest in Intel.
During the presentation, Intel President of Client & IoT Business and Systems Architecture Group President, Dr. Murthy Renduchintala, told investors that Intel’s upcoming 10nm Cannonlake CPUs (8th Generation Core) will perform over 15% better when compared to current generation 14nm Kaby Lake CPUs (7th Generation Core). Of course, these numbers are only based on the SYSmark 2014 benchmark, so it’s unclear where the [...]
Who said American manufacturing was dead? Intel CEO Brian Krzanich and US President Donald Trump recently announced at the White House that Intel is planning to invest $7 Billion into the completion of Fab 42 in Chandler, Arizona. Fab 42 is expected to produce Intel’s next generation 7nm processors, slated to launch in 2020.
According to the announcement, Fab 42 will take approximately 3 to 4 years to complete and will create approximately 3,000 high tech jobs directly through the facility with an additional estimated 10,000 additional jobs indirectly tied to the support of of the facility as well.
According to a new article from French publication, Canard PC, Intel is strategically looking to beat AMD’s upcoming Ryzen CPUs with some souped up Kaby Lake CPUs of their own.
AMD has demonstrated the Ryzen CPU as a tough competitor against Intel’s i7-6900K, which apparently has gotten Intel a bit nervous about the competition. According to unnamed sources, Intel will be releasing the Core i7-7740K and the Core i5-7640K to ensure the continuation of its superiority in the desktop CPU market.
The unconfirmed specifications for the Intel Core i7-7740K include an 8MB L3 cache size and a base frequency of 4.3GHz. The base frequency is 100MHz higher than [...]
Thanks to a CPU QVL list on MSI’s C236M Workstation motherboard, we now have a detailed spec sheet on Intel’s upcoming Xeon E3-1200 V6 family of processors based on the Kaby Lake architecture.
Intel’s naming scheme for its Xeon processors is similar to that of its consumer processors. Much like i7, i5, and i3 in the consumer range, the E7, E5, and E3 prefix denote the expected relative performance of the processor within the family. As you may have already guessed, chips in the Xeon E3 family are considered lower-end and more cost efficient designed for lower end servers and workstations. So far, only details for the Xeon E3-1200 V6 has been [...]
After being the first to reach 22nm then subsequently 14nm FinFET, Intel’s chip development pace has slowed considerably for the move to 10nm with many losing confidence in Intel’s ability to maintain a chip manufacturing advantage over competitors such as TSMC, Samsung, and GlobalFoundries.
During Intel’s CES 2017 press conference, Intel CEO, Brian Krzanich however, did not believe Intel’s manufacturing capabilities have diminished as he demonstrated the world’s first 2-in-1 PC running on Intel’s upcoming 10nm Cannonlake platform. During the presentation Krzanich also reassured the audience that Moore’s Law is not dead and [...]
AMD stocks surged almost 9% today as rumors that an Intel/AMD licensing agreement has recently been completed. According to a recent forum post on HardOCP by Kyle Bennett, “The licensing deal between AMD and Intel is signed and done for putting AMD GPU tech into Intel’s iGPU.”
AMD licensing graphics technology to Intel has been rumored for quite some time as Intel’s current licensing deal with AMD competitor, Nvidia, is expected to end in March 2017. The current Intel/Nvidia licensing deal is worth approximately $1.5 Billion and netted Nvidia approximately $67 million last quarter.No further details about the deal has been revealed at this [...]
