Without admitting any wrongdoing, Intel has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit alleging that the Santa Clara chip maker manipulated benchmark scores for its first-generation Pentium 4 processors. The suit also alleges that Hewlett-Packard helped Intel fudge its scores in order to cover up "pervasive design flaws" resulting in "dismal" performance compared to the previous generation Pentium III and AMD's Athlon CPUs. "Intel used its enormous resources and influence in the computing industry to, in Intel’s own words, 'falsely improve' the Pentium 4’s performance scores. It secretly... Read more...
For those of you who can't wait to get your hands on the latest and greatest, news today should have you making out a Christmas list. Intel has confirmed that the next-generation Nehalem processor (codenamed Sandy Bridge) is on track for volume shipment in 2010, which means we'll probably see at least a few SKUs launching before the end of the year. Sandy Bridge is a 'tock' in Intel's tick-tock model, meaning it's a new architecture delivered on an existing process technology. Many of the processor's characteristics will be familiar, such as the 256K of L2 cache and the 8MB L3, but the chip has... Read more...
The Pentium 4 processor was first released in November of 2000. Over the past five years, we've seen a lot of changes happen to Intel's precious processing baby. With all the different core revisions and the features they have, it's a little difficult to keep up with what the various Pentium 4 chips have to offer. Hardware Secrets looks to make the job a little easier with their Pentium 4 model reference."Intel Pentium 4 Processor was released in November 2000, using Intel's seventh x86 microarchitecture, called Netburst. Pentium 4 processors can be found in three different core versions: Willamette,... Read more...

Hey folks, before we get to the news I'd like to bring your attention to Robert's review of the Asus P5WD2 Premium i955X Motherboard. It's an expensive piece of hardware, going for around $225, but is the package worth the price? Only one way to find out. Enjoy the rest of the news :) Intel Researchers Develop CMOS Radio Supporting All Flavors Of The 802.11 Wi-Fi Standard KYOTO, Japan, June 17, 2005 -- Intel Corporation announced it has developed a prototype of an all-CMOS direct conversion dual-band radio transceiver capable of supporting every current Wi-Fi standard (802.11a, b and g), as well...

Good Morning All, Today we've got a double-header showcase of new Intel Processor and Chipset technologies being launched by the company affectionately known as "Chipzilla".  Intel has officially taken the wraps off their new mainstream Pentium D 820 Processor and i945 Express series chipsets.  Additionally, they've also cranked up the Pentium 4 6XX sequence line-up to include the new Pentium 4 670 at 3.8GHz. Get all the good stuff on this new HOT Hardware right here - HotHardware's Pentium D 820  and i945 Chipset Showcase And HotHardware's Pentium 4 670 3.8GHz Performance... Read more...
  Though clock speed is no longer a true measure of processor performance, it's hard to argue with a few hundred more MHz no matter which CPU architecture you'd consider.  Regardless, it's clear the industry as a whole, as well as the world's largest chip manufacturer, Intel, has now embarked on an effort to provide more computing power per clock cycle, focusing on IPC (Instructions Per Clock Cycles) metrics as better manifestations of overall performance.  As the PC and workstation marketplaces now look toward a future of dual-core processors, Intel continues a parallel effort of...

Hey there everyone.  We've got ourselves a relatively quiet morning with just a few items to serve up.  First, there is the Pentium 4 3.73GHz Extreme Edition followed by some 6600GT and 6800 SLI lovin'.  Lastly, there's a look at the Thermaltake Armor VA8000 Case.  For me, it's time to get the weekend started a little early.  I'll catch you back here next week. Intel Pentium 4 3.73GHz Extreme Edition @ Viperlair: "As we've seen in our results, the gap between AMD and Intel in terms of application performance is a lot closer than it used to be, at least when we're talking...

  It's no secret that Intel has occassionally been playing a bit of catchup this year in the desktop and workstation processor arena.  AMD's Athlon 64 releases have recently positioned the company in the lead from a general performance standpoint.  Additionally, the Athlon 64 was the first processor to market with 64-bit extensions and processing capabilities, although there really hasn't been much if any impact in consumer or business usage models for the new architecture because there are scarce few 64-bit applications available, much less a mainstream 64-bit OS.  Of...

Good Afternoon All! BW here taking some time out from trick-or-treating to let you all know that we've just posted a review of Intel's latest flagship processor, the 3.46GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, and the new i925XE chipset with official support for a 1066MHz front side bus. We've got reference numbers from four top-end Athlon 64 platforms, as well as a Pentium 4 560 and a 3.4GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition. Click here and check it out...... Read more...
  The folks out in Sunnyvale have been releasing new additions to their Athlon 64 processor lineup with the kind of fevered pace we've come to expect from major-league semiconductor manufacturers.  So too has the ever-dominant Intel.  With 78,000 employees worldwide and almost 10 times the revenue of its nearest competitor at $30 billion annually, its this kind of critical mass that allows a company to pour endless resources into a program and drive higher reaching product line goals. Earlier this month, we brought you a view of AMD's new Athlon FX-55 and Athlon 64 4000+ processors... Read more...
Major product launches don't seem to be getting any easier these days, at least on our side of the fence here in the online media community.  Competition is fiercer than ever in all of the major functional blocks for personal computing, whether it's Graphics, Platform Chipsets, Drive technology or Processors.  It almost seems like major OEMs are driving too hard in an effort to trump the competition.  On the other hand, high tech, as we all know, is a very unforgiving battleground.  And so, it is with cramped weary fingers and bloodshot tired eyes, that we bring you this showcase...

  Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz Performance Evaluation Another speed bump served up by Intel with ease By, Dave Altavilla June 23, 2003   Once again, Intel has decided to turn up the heat on their arch rival, AMD.  In a sort of digital ying-yang, the battle for Performance Desktop and Workstation Processor leadership, presses on relentlessly.  Like opposite yet mutual compliments, Intel releases the 3GHz P4 with 800MHz system bus and AMD lets fly with the Athlon XP 3200+.  It's almost like nature intended it to be, isn't it?  As Intel and AMD duke it out, in an effort to...
