While Intel is the king of the PC, competitor ARM is arguably the king of mobile, and the latter is apparently further securing its crown with a new optimized IP solution that’s designed for use in midrange mobile devices. ARM executives went so far as to tell TechHive that their offerings are a generation ahead of Intel’s. Assuming that’s true, it’s especially bad news for Intel because the chipmaker just launched its new 22nm Atom solution. ARM’s latest consists of an a Cortex-A12 processor with a Mali-T622 GPU and a Mali -V500 (which is a multi-core video solution... Read more...
WD has added to its SMB storage server line with the WD Sentinel RX4100, a 1U rack-mount server designed for ease of installation and setup as well as affordability. The server joins the Sentinel DX4000 in WD’s lineup. The Sentinel RX4100 is available in capacities of 16TB (4 x 4TB), 12TB (4 x 3TB), or 8TB (4 x 2TB) with 4GB of DDR3-800 SODIMM RAM. It offers four 3.5-inch drive bays with a front-loading, hot swap design, and the drives are pre-configured in RAID 5 and feature automatic RAID rebuild. Under the hood is a dual-core Intel Atom processor Sentinel DX4000 (top) with Sentinel RX4100... Read more...
Although Samsung’s Galaxy Tab devices are generally very fine products, the sheer number of SKUs in the line make individual Tabs less interesting. However, there’s a rumor that the upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will be packing an Intel chip instead of a homegrown Samsung Exynos or other mobile processor. According to Android Authority, a GLBenchmark test shows that model GT-P5210 (believed to be the model number for the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1) has an Intel Clovertrail chip inside, which the site says is the 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560. Judging from the information, the Intel processor would be... Read more...
Intel may have missed its chance to power Apple's iPhone range, but Lenovo's not going to let the chipmaker skip over yet another flagship device. The company's K900 smartphone, which was initially shown at CES 2013, is finally on sale this week. It's actually one of the most powerful smartphones on the planet, equipped with a dual-core 2GHz Atom Z2580 processor, a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU and a copy of Android on top. There's an expansive 5.5" IPS touch panel (1080p), and the frame measures just 6.9mm thick. There's also a piece of Gorilla Glass 2 protecting the panel, and a 13MP camera sensor from... Read more...
In an effort to coax developers to begin taking Atom seriously as an Android platform, Intel has just released a complete suite of tools that should help ease them into things - especially since it can be used for ARM development as well. It's called Beacon Mountain, named after the highest peak outside of Beacon, New York, and it currently targets Windows 7 and 8 as the development host OS, with Mac OS X to be supported later this year. As you'd expect, Beacon Mountain supports Jelly Bean (4.2) development, and with this suite, you're provided with a collection of important Intel tools: Hardware... Read more...
Bored nerds create some of the most entertaining and amazing stuff out there, but when those nerds are nanophysicists, they screw around with things at the atomic level. And when those nanophysicists work for IBM, they get paid to make things like the world’s smallest movie. If you don’t catch what’s happening in this one-minute film, it’s a stop-motion animated feature about a boy playing with an atom. It’s rather 8-bit looking, and the boy is kind of a sloppy stick figure, but you can forgive all of that when you realize that they made the film by manipulating individual... Read more...
In remarks on an earnings call a couple of weeks ago, outgoing Intel CEO Paul Otellini mentioned briefly that Intel would likely be putting out touch-enabled notebooks running for as little as $200. Presumably those devices would be running Windows 8, but now it appears as though Intel may use Android on those devices. Intel’s executive vice president and chief product officer Dadi Perlmutter told CNET that those PCs will more likely be based on Android and run on Intel Atom processors. The reasoning is simple: Android is free. Windows 8 is not. Thus, as Perlmutter also said, reaching that... Read more...
As far as the accuracy of rumors go, one good sign that you’re either spot on or really, really far off is if the company that’s the object of the speculation specifically asks you to remove information from your site. That’s apparently what happened with French site Minimachines, which leaked photos and specs of the Acer Iconia W3 tablet. Of course, this being the Internet, that information has already been widely disseminated. The W3 tablet looks to be an 8-inch device that runs Windows 8. Other specs include a 1.8GHz Atom Z2760 processor, 2GB of RAM, front and rear cameras,... Read more...
Intel’s Paul Otellini is on his way out as CEO, but before he steps down a month from now, he dropped some news about what Intel is planning to roll out in the near future during an earnings call with investors. Specifically, he said that soon, consumers might be seeing touch-enabled Intel-based notebooks running Windows 8 for as low as $200. Otellini had previously noted in his remarks that he believed OEMs might start rolling out new notebook form factors based around upcoming Haswell (4th-generation Core processors) or even the new Bay Trail Atom chips at price points as low as $300 to...

It's been obvious for weeks that Intel's earnings call this afternoon wasn't going to have much good news in it. With total PC shipments falling 13% quarter-on-quarter -- the worst decline in nearly 20 years -- there was no way Intel would escape being hit by that drop. Today, Santa Clara reported that its Q1 profits fell 25%, to $2B, down from $2.7B in the first quarter of 2012. Gross margins took a hammering, as well, falling to 56.2% from 64% in Q1 2012. Despite these problems, Otellini was upbeat. "“Amidst market softness, Intel performed well in the first quarter and I’m excited... Read more...
At the Intel Developers Forum currently underway in Beijing, Intel revealed a number of details regarding future Atom and Xeon processors and proposed server and rack-level enhancements to improve efficiency and ease upgrades moving forward. As Diane Bryant (senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Datacenter and Connected Systems Group) revealed, the company will soon refresh its Xeon and Atom processor lines with new products manufactured using Intel’s advanced 22nm process node, which offer improved performance per watt characteristics and expanded feature sets that...

As data requirements worldwide continue to skyrocket, HP is attempting to shoot past those demands with a new class of space-, energy-, and cost-efficient servers with HP Moonshot. Today, the first of that breed is commercially available. The solution consists of the HP Moonshot 1500 enclosure and HP ProLiant Moonshot services, which will be available from a number of HP partners and geared toward specific workloads, respectively. Features include support for up to 1,800 servers per rack as well as HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLo) management and a claim from HP that they occupy one-eighth the space... Read more...
Are business oriented tablets such as the Dell Latitude 10 better suited for the workplace than popular mainstream tablets such as the iPad? Dell believes their solutions are. Last month, Dell issued a press release in which it claimed its Latitude 10 Enhanced Security tablet is "up to 17 times faster and 94 percent less expensive to deploy than iPads in large scale enterprise implementations." Those are bold claims with very specific figures to back them up.  Regardless of how you feel about Apple, Dell, or another manufacturer's products, one thing is certain: the use of tablets for business...
