It's a fairly safe assumption that both AMD and Intel have a good idea what is going on with the other company, especially when it comes to products that are due to see the light of day soon. This means that Intel probably has a very good idea of what to expect from AMD quad-core CPUs that are due out in few short months. So what does Intel think of Barcelona? Well, according to this DailyTech article, it seems that Intel has abandoned a 2.13GHz quad-core CPU and is now planning on bumping their existing mid-high end 2.4GHz chip down in price, possibly even cheaper than they had planned on for the 2.13GHz. If all this ends up coming about the way DailyTech says it might, then it would seem... Read more...
It appears Intel will be cutting prices on its quad-core CPUs leading up to the release of AMD's native quad-core Barcelona family of processors. The price war between Intel and AMD, a constant conflict which culminated last year when Intel released its Core 2 and AMD cut prices on its Athlon 64 X2 products, will most likely continue. Expect to see price cuts for Intel's QX6700 and Q6600 in the months to come as well. AMD is expected to ship its native quad-core desktop CPUs, now dubbed K10, in Q3 2007. Intel guidance already states the company will accelerate the ongoing price war through Q3 2007 -- a price war that has already taken its toll on AMD and Intel profits.... Read more...
Intel releasing a chip ahead of time is usually a sign of stiff competition, something that they haven't had a lot of for several months now at the high-end. What's known to be coming down the pipe from AMD is their quad-core Barcelona, which may or may not give Intel's finest some competition. Being that Intel and AMD both have a pretty good idea of what's going down in the other's camp, this might be a very positive sign that AMD's Barcelona is the real deal. "Intel will update its four-core Core 2 Extreme line-up sooner than expected, it the latest roadmap reports coming out of Asia are to be believed. They claim the successor to the 2.66GHz QX6700 will ship in Q3."... Read more...
ExtremeTech has an article posted with information regarding AMD's upcoming "Barcelona" processors and the future R600 family of graphics cards.  The information was compiled last week during a briefing in San Francisco and includes quotes taken directly from AMD's Mario Rivas, Henri Richard, and former ATI CEO Dave Orton. "We pushed out the launch of the R600 and people thought is must be a silicon or software problem...it's got to be a bug," said Dave Orton, president and chief executiveof ATI. "In fact, our mainstream chips are in 65nm and are coming out extremely fast. Because of that configuration, we have... Read more...
AMD Demonstrates Accelerated Computing Solution that Breaks Teraflop Barrier San Francisco - Feb. 28, 2007 - AMD (NYSE: AMD) today showcased a single-system, Accelerated Computing platform that breaks the teraflop computing barrier. Organizations are ultimately expected to be able to apply this technology to a wide range of scientific, medical, business and consumer computing applications. At a press event in San Francisco, AMD demonstrated a "Teraflop in a Box" system running a standard version of Microsoft Windows XP Professional that harnessed the power of AMD Opteron(tm) dual-core processor technology and two next-generation AMD R600 Stream Processors capable of performing more...

According to sources at HKEPC, AMD is planning to launch multiple flavors of their upcoming native quad-core processors, codenamed "Barcelona" in June. And if the information they've compiled is correct, the fastest processor in the group will be clocked at 2.3GHz. "The next-generation AMD quad-core Opteron, codenamed Barcelona and fabricated by 65nm manufacturing technology, is natively designed with 4 functioning cores, each of them owns 512KB L2 Cache and share the same 2MB L3 Cache. Barcelona supports for 128Bit FPU and provides a capability of up to 4 FLOPS/clock. The interface remains in Socket F (1207), and therefore it's compatible to the existing Socket F platforms."...

What's the highest of hi-tech things you'll see this weekend? Yup, you guessed it: sweaty giants colliding with one another in striped pasture. Ars Technica has a fascinating rundown on the hardware that goes into showing you The Super Bowl While the game itself remains a contest of brute strength, raw speed, and little red challenge beanbags, the entire transmission infrastructure that brings the games into our homes and plasters them on our televisions in HD is exactly the opposite: millions of dollars of the most complicated broadcast technology on the planet. In any sane world, a... Read more...

Several months ago, Seagate got the PC industry's attention with the introduction of the company's first 750GB consumer hard drive. As shown within our review of the drive, the Barracuda 7200.10 combined excellent performance with unparalleled capacity and a stellar 5-yr warranty. Fast forward to today and we find ourselves looking at Seagate's latest entry into the enterprise market with the arrival of the 750GB Barracuda ES. As was the case with its brethren, the Barracuda ES owes its monstrous capacity to perpendicular recording technology. As illustrated in the image above, we see that the bits from the data stream are now oriented perpendicular to the plane... Read more...
Plan A: 1. Buy or steal one copy of expensive software 2. Sign up for Google adwords 3. Sell a whole bunch of it 4. Buy yachts and mansions and antique cars and pretty much have a Nelly video party running at your house day and night.

Seagate recently released its new Barracuda 7200.10 storage line, and with that, the company introduced the largest hard drive on the market at 750GB. While that is impressive in itself, there is more to the story. Along with bringing a new line and the highest capacity drive to the market, Seagate is also the first company to bring 3.5" desktop drives that use perpendicular recording to the market. You may be thinking that you've heard of perpendicular recording before, and that is probably because Seagate introduced mobile hard drives (2.5") using the technology almost a year ago. The technology isn't brand new. Technologists have been researching and perfecting the technology... Read more...
The Tech Report has just posted a review of Seagate's new 750GB, perpendicular recording Barracuda 7200.10 hard drive.  This is one monster of a hard drive in terms of features and capacity.  We'll be posting our review of this unit in the coming days...
