Intel is mapping on launching its Core i7-4771 in this fall to take its premium line to 2014 when it plans to launch a refresh of Haswell. VR-Zone managed to get their hands on a copy of the chip early to run some benchmarks.
Intel is gearing up for the launch of their Core i7 “Ivy Bridge-E” high end desktop (HEDT) processors coming up in September. According to reports the Ivy Bridge-E lineup will consist of the Core i7-4960X, Core i7-4930K and the Core i7-4820K. These processors will fit current X79 motherboards with a simple BIOS update. VR-Zone has released the alleged prices of these processors when they come to market.
Intel has formally announced their latest SSD 530 series targeted towards those consumers and client who expect high-performance from their systems. The SSD 530 series is designed for the next generation of Ultrabook PCs along with traditional desktops and laptop setups.
The Xeon Phi Coprocessor family unit took a step into the limelight after the launch of the Tianhe-2 Supercomputer, which attached Intel’s Xeon Processors with the Xeon Phi Coprocessors to exceptional success. Unnecessary to say the landscape of supercomputing might be in for a change.
We will see Intel’s Core i7 “Ivy Bridge-E” series in about two months, but until then there seems to be a mysterious “Sandy Bridge-E” part listed on roadmaps on different retailers. The part is a Intel Core i7-3910K. We are pretty sure it is not a typo as the list you see below even mentions the S-spec code “SR0TN” which is not the same as the “SW0WR” S-spec code of the Core i7-3970X.
Intel has updated its road map with a new, low-power server chip to help it ward off competition from Calxeda and other makers of low-power chips. It seems Intel plans to take interest in the field of production it hasn’t explored befre. SoC design is mostly use to cut down power consumption and deliver a compact solution for both low and high end users. The Broadwell SoC will be manufactured with a 14nm process and targeted at the server market where power efficiency is prioritized above all.
Intel does not seem to happy about motherboard manufactures finding a way around their restriction and is said to be releasing a firmware update for their H87/B85 motherboard chipsets. This firmware update would actively block the Non-Z OC feature from various manufacturers.
According to Hermitage Akihabara, Intel Ivy Bridge-E processors will arrive in just 2 months on September 11th. These new bridges are expected to stay ahead of the Sandy Bridge-E line up but shall work on the same socket and X79 chipset with a BIOS update. New amendments of X79 motherboards with BIOS updates will be issued for release to most of the sellers. With its launch, we will see the Intel Core i7 4960K, 4930K and 4820K all releasing too.
Intel’s next unit of computing (NUC) is actually a tiny computer that highlights Intel’s ability to make small, interesting and useful form factors. It comes in two models; one is specifically catering the business applications while other is inclined towards consumers for general usage purpose. You will be surprised to hear the news which might not have come in anyone’s knowledge but for your information, Intel’s next unit of computing mini PC has a flaw, and the defect is; it does not cool the mPCIe card very well. The problem arises when the system gets too overloaded; the mini PCI express WLAN card can over heat which results in the mal-functioning of the mSATA SSD next to it.
Actually Intel’s revised 8-series chipsets were supposed to be available to motherboard OEMs as soon as this month turned up. According to a few sources, this won’t happen since chipset is just not ready. Intel Corporation has passed a statement to confirm the USB 3.0 interface on its Haswell processor supporting a chipset design defect. A portable drive disappeared phenomenon will appear in the system into standby. On the other hand, USB 3.0 ports stop working after entering or leaving windows sleep mode.
