Officially, Dell has stocked AMD systems for several years, but the visibility and prominence of its AMD offerings has tended to ebb and rise. There have been times when the smaller CPU manufacturer has been all but banished from the company's online store, and then there are times like now, when AMD-powered rigs are popping up in multiple areas. Dell doesn't exactly acknowledge the trend, but Dell's director of consumer desktops, John Terwilliger, told Statesman: "Today's digital lifestyle revolves around video, music, photos and the capability to share those personal experiences. AMD technology helps us deliver a great multimedia experience at a great price."   The OEM's vehicle of... Read more...
It may not be here as soon as we'd like it (you know, like yesterday), but Intel's Core i5 platform is definitely on the way. If you needed just one more modicum of proof, have a look at the latest blast from Kingston. Today, one of the mainstays in the memory industry announced that a pair of its 1333MHz DDR3 offerings have already been validated by Intel for "use in its upcoming Core i5 systems."We hate to read too far between the lines, but if Intel is already validating memory for its Core i5 platform, then Core i5 must be at least decently close to release, right? At any rate, the lucky modules in question are Kingston part numbers KVR1333D3S9/1G and 2G, both of which cleared hurdles on... Read more...
It appears the Intel P55 motherboard previews are all the rage the past couple of days. Despite the fact that we showed off one of Asus' higher-end P55 motherboards way back in early June, we thought we'd get into the mix as well and give you faithful HotHardware readers a gander at a couple of Gigabyte-built motherboards that also feature Intel's upcoming P55 chipset for LGA1156 processors, codenamed Lynnfield.First up is the Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P. We can't offer any information about performance just yet, but are able to give you a glimpse at the hardware and what it has in store.          Gigabyte's GA-P55-UD4P(click for larger view) As you can see, the...

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...
As is typically the case, there are plenty of hot, upcoming new products being showcased at the Computex event, currently going on in Taipei. And although Intel is yet to nail down a specific launch date and official product name, Asus is already showing off motherboards that will support Intel's upcoming mainstream Nehalem processor derivatives, codenamed Lynnfield--and sometimes referred to as Core i5, perhaps incorrectly.             Asus P7P55 Pro Lynnfield LGA-1156 Motherboard What you see pictured above is the Asus P7P55 Pro motherboard based on the Intel P55 PCH (platform controller hub). Due to the fact that Lynnfield processors feature an integrated memory... Read more...
Oh, brother -- again already? Just days after we heard that Intel was delayed its long awaiting Itanium chip to better its performance before shipping, in flies word that the chip maker is delaying yet another processor, and this one's arguably even more significant. Needless to say, Intel's Core i7 has been a huge hit with gamers and multimedia lovers alike, and it has no doubt generated millions for the company.Now, the processor's lower-end brother, which was on track to debut this July, will reportedly slip to early September. Indeed, we were even hearing about the Core i5 (codenamed Lynnfield) during CeBIT in March, but evidently things haven't gone quite as planned in Intel's laboratories.... Read more...
