Earlier this year, Intel software VP Renee James caused a kerfluffle between himself and Microsoft when he claimed Microsoft's upcoming OS wouldn't support older x86 applications when running on an ARM processor. Microsoft, in response, called his characterization "factually inaccurate and unfortunately misleading." ...Except, apparently, it wasn't—at least, not as far as ARM/x86 compatibility were concerned. During a Q&A session this past week, Windows division President Steven Sinofsky clarified the relationship between the two architectures: We've been very clear since the very first... Read more...
For a CPU that hasn't seen the light of day, there's a great deal of debate surrounding Apple's A6—and the suggestion that it may not appear until later in 2012. The A6 is a complex bit of hardware; rumors indicate that the chip is a quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU built on 28nm at TSMC and utilizing the latter's 3D fabrication technology. We've previously discussed Intel's own 3D tech; TSMC's is presumably based on similar concepts.The CPU's competitive performance is surprisingly unclear. While the Cortex-A9 is a proven design, Apple's A6 will be one of the first 28nm chips on the market. That... Read more...
One of the big announcements at CES this year will be from Microsoft; the company plans to announce (and possibly demonstrate) a consumer-centric version of  Windows running on ARM processors. The company's decision is a powerful endorsement. Other Microsoft products like Windows Embedded and Windows Mobile support ARM products but the software giant has never released a non-x86 mainstream version of Windows.* It'll be quite awhile before we see an actual shipping OS. Microsoft has already sunk months of work into the endeavor, but vendor driver support is expected to take quite some time.... Read more...
Motherboard makers have reported that Intel intends to add another member to its "4" series (Eaglelake) chipset which is set to launch Q2 next year.Intel is planning to add one more member to its 4 series (Eaglelake) chipsets which will be launched in the second quarter of 2008, according to sources at motherboard makers.In addition to its original premium G45 IGP and mainstream P45 chipsets, Intel will add the G43 chipset to replace the previous G35, P35, G33 and G31 chipsets in the value segment.The G43 will adopt a 65nm process and have a built-in Intel GMA 4500 graphics engine, supporting DirectX...

Golf ball fan now available in 120mm version Sharkoon Silent Eagle 120mm / with 1000 or 2000 rpm / suggested retail price: $14.69 Sharkoon is introducing a new version of its golf ball case fan: the Silent Eagle is now also available in a 120mm size. The larger model moves more air than an 80mm fan at the same rpms and noise level. The particular advantage of the Silent Eagle is its unique design: the rotor blades have the same surface structure as a golf ball. The blades are covered by small round depressions, which golfers refer to as "dimples". These slight concavities markedly improve... Read more...
