It's been just over a year since AMD completed its spinoff of GlobalFoundries in an attempt to radically change its own financial trajectory. The gamble appears to have paid off for both companies; we recently sat down with GlobalFoundries executives to talk about the company's first year and plans for the future. GlobalFoundries current roadmap is as follows: The company will ship 40nm LP (low power) silicon starting this quarter and 32nm SOI in the back half of 2010. The left edge of each box denotes 'risk production,' aka early commercial production. One of the reasons we originally contacted GF was to clear up some confusion around the 32nm/28nm process nodes. When GlobalFoundries first... Read more...
Not every high-end, haute couture product turns out to be a bestseller—even Steve Jobs had the Cube—but it's rather odd for a manufacturer to design, advertise, tease, and launch a product only to pull it off the market barely four months later. Nevertheless, that's the news from Dell on the Adamo XPS. The Adamo product line will continue but its 0.4" thick headline XPS system with a 128GB SSD and 4GB RAM as standard has been discontinued. If it's odd for a company to launch a high-end product in November, make it readily available in December, and kill it in March, it's even stranger for company reps and retail partners like Best Buy to identify the Adamo XPS as discontinued while the PR division...

Intel plans to geek out at this year's Super Bowl. The company plans to use the Super Bowl's wide appeal to call attention to its all new 2010 Intel Core processor family. Today, Intel announced that it will be the title sponsor of the post-game show on CBS. Intel will also appear as an individual Super Bowl advertiser, representing the first time Intel has advertised during the game in over a decade. This year, Intel will debut two new commercials over three 30-second spots. The first of the commercials will air during the fourth quarter of the game on February 7th. The other two 30-second spots will run during The Intel Super Bowl Today Post-Game Show. Super Bowl Viewers to Get Several Servings... Read more...
For awhile, Intel's Core i7 was the only Core around. Then came the Core i5 and Core i3, and now a whole new world of machines are being offered up at much more reasonable price points. CyberPower is usually one of the first PC makers out there to implement new chips once they hit the market, and the same goes this time around. The new Core i3 series are aimed at budget-conscience consumers, and it's available to order now on right new Gamer Xtreme models. The Core i3-530 and Core i3-540 CPUs will both be offered, with the cheapest system being priced at only $649. Have a look at our in-depth look at the chip here, and take a look at the system options below.CyberPower Announces Intel Core i3... Read more...
Just recently, we were able to sit down with Intel and talk shop about its newest (and most powerful) Core i7 yet, and apparently the company is really fond of that "Core iX" naming convention. So enthused, in fact, that they have just announced plans to phase out some of its brands -- including "Centrino" in order to hone in on fewer top names. Granted, we've certainly seen Intel and others try this re-branding thing before. Remember when megahertz ratings were all the rage? Now, Intel will stop using Centrino and start using more "Core" names, but the re-brand won't go into effect until next year. Oddly, Centrino will no longer about to just personal computers; instead, it will refer to Wi-Fi... Read more...
