New SSD? From Intel? Of course! With IDF ongoing this week, it marked the perfect chance for Intel to reveal something other than Ivy Bridge, Haswell and their intentions to work closely to optimize future Atom CPUs for use with Android. And so, it was. The Intel SSD 710 series was just unveiled, an enterprise-grade Multi-Level Cell (MLC) SATA SSD featuring high endurance, performance and reliability. It uses compute-quality 25nm MLC NAND flash memory in 100GB, 200GB and 300GB capacities, and it promises Single-Level Cell (SLC) SSD endurance with MLC value for optimal data center storage. Intel's billing this as a replacement for the X25-E Extreme SSD; while that guy was based on more expensive... Read more...

We spent some time yesterday walking through the Technology Showcase at this year’s IDF, and as you may expect much of the buzz surrounds Sandy Bridge-E, its companion X79 chipset, and Ultrabooks. We stopped off to see what MSI, Kingston and Gigabyte specifically had on display on the show floor and also snapped off a few pictures of an Asus Ultrabook that was being shown off during one of our briefings.    Asus UX21 Ultrabook, all 2.4 pounds of it... First up we have some shots of the Asus UX21 Ultrabook. The all-aluminum Asus UX21 is just 0.66″ thick at its thickest point and weighs only 2.4lbs, yet the machine will be offered in configurations with up to a Core i7... Read more...
As is traditionally the case, Intel’s CEO Paul Otellini opened up the Intel Developer’s Forum with a keynote address in the theater at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The focus of Otellini’s talk was the “future of computing” and how Intel plans to capitalize on current trends and growth in the mobile device market. Otellini’s opinion is that we are still in the early stages in this evolution of computing and moving forward, no one device will be at the center of the computing experience.  But of course, Intel plans to capitalize on all of them....

There's a lot going on at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) this year, just as there is every year, and not all of it has to do with processors. Making a splash of its own, DisplayLink debuted the world's first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 graphics adapter built around the company's DL-3500 chip. It's built by Winstars and is appropriately called the Winstars SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to HDMI adapter. "Winstars is set to deliver a very well-timed connectivity solution that builds on the inherent performance benefits of SuperSpeed USB 3.0," said Dennis Crespo, DisplayLink executive vice president of marketing and business development. "DisplayLink adds on the ability to stream high resolution video and enriched... Read more...
Just before wandering into Paul Otellini’s opening keynote at the Intel Intel Developers Forum going on in San Francisco, we spotted some new hardware on display in one of the demo areas we thought you’d all like to see. If you remember a few weeks back, rumors began to spread that both Intel and AMD would be offering self-contained liquid-cooling solutions with their upcoming high-end processors. Well, as these pictures show, Intel is most definitely on-track to offer a liquid-cooling solution. Oh, and yes, that’s an X79 motherboard right next to it...       The X79 Express chipset is the successor to the X58 and will be paired to Intel’s... Read more...

And here it is! Intel announced an app store for netbooks last year, but the company has been fairly silent on it ever since. At IDF in California, the Intel AppUp center for netbooks has been released, with new Adobe AIR applications, Microsoft Silverlight, and support from Asus, Best Buy, Croma and Dixons. In other words, Intel now has the partner support to really give this thing a go. App stores are a dime a dozen these days, but it actually sounds as if Intel may have some steam behind this one. The Intel AppUp center includes both free and paid apps for entertainment, social networking, gaming and productivity, optimized for a netbook’s mobility and screen size. To encourage consumers...

Intel kicked off the third and final day of IDF 2010 with a keynote detailing the future evolution of devices it refers to as "contextually aware." This is far from the first time Intel has put a spotlight on the future of device design; we've covered several announcements in this vein over the past 12 months. According to Justin Rattner, CTO and Senior Fellow at Intel, context awareness will change the nature of how we interact with devices. Intel's goal is to create devices that can function more like personal assistants and less like PDAs. These theoretical gadgets would gather and process both hard data (physical location, outside conditions) and soft data (calendar, social networking preferences,... Read more...

There was quite a bit of activity on the show floor at the Technology Showcase taking place at the Intel Developer’s Forum, with a multitude of vendors hawking their latest wares. Unfortunately, there weren’t too many brand new products on display, like the OCZ RevoDrive X2 we showed you yesterday, but we still managed to snag a few pictures of a few PC-related products we thought you may be interested in checking out.             First up, we have Lenovo and DisplayLink. Lenovo didn’t have any brand new products on display, but did have an assortment of Intel-based netbooks, notebooks, and nettops. Their Atom-based nettop IdeaCenter Q150... Read more...
In typical fashion, Intel kicked off IDF 2010 with a couple of keynote addresses headlined by the company’s President and CEO, Paul Otellini, and the GM of the Intel Architecture Group David “Dadi” Perlmutter. Topics of the keynote addresses included everything from Sandy Bridge to WiDi, and a myriad of others in between, but the main theme that permeated the entire conversation was how Intel is changing or plans to change moving forward.   Details on Intel's second generation Core processor, Intel's ongoing development efforts with GoogleTV and a host of other hands-on demos were presented.  Intel's highly integrated Sandy Bridge CPU is looking strong and on track...

We just spent some time trudging through the Technology Showcase at IDF 2010 and came across a hot product in the Sandforce booth. As most of you probably know, Sandforce produces the controllers used in some of the hottest solid state drives currently on the market. And you probably also know that OCZ has worked very closely with Sandforce and have brought a number of products to market based on the company’s controllers.     OCZ RevoDrive X2 SSD @ IDF 2010 While looking though the booth, we caught a glimpse at the upcoming OCZ RevoDrive X2, which is a PCI Express-based SSD that features four Sandforce controllers in what’s essentially a 4-way RAID configuration--it looked...

We had a look at Intel's newest connection standard, Light Peak, during our stay at IDF last week. To be honest, we were floored by the possibilities. Optical cabling has always had huge potential, so it makes perfect sense to see Intel really pushing such a standard during a time with bandwidth is in high demand and data can't possibly be moved quickly enough.Here's an interesting twist on the whole thing: it seems as if Apple has a whole lot to do with it. Yeah, Apple! Now, Apple and Intel have been on speaking terms for quite a few years now. In fact, if sales of the company's Intel-based computers are any indication, we'd say Intel is quite pleased to have the California-based company as... Read more...
The second day of IDF kicked off with a fevered pitch of mobile technologies while Intel's Dadi Permutter and Mooley Eden stepped through a slide deck and several tech demos that gave us a view of where Intel is today with their new generation of Core i7 Mobile "Clarksfield" technology and of the future generation products like Intel's upcoming Arrandale processor with integrated graphics. Historically the focus on mobile computing has always been to reduce power consumption, increase battery life and processor speed as well as capitalize on the obvious thin-is-in trend. However, moving forward Dadi suggested that new Intel technologies will afford us new usage models and applications, like real-time... Read more...

This just in.  Can we say that here?  Sure we can... At IDF today we had the opportunity to stop by the technology showcase booth of Lucid Logix.  If you recall, over a year ago, the fabless semiconductor start-up promised to set the graphics industry on its ear by bringing to market  PCI Express switching technology that would allow multi-graphics card installations of any variety, mixing and matching different graphics cards based on similar graphics processors or multiple cards based on very different GPUs, from both NVIDIA and AMD-ATI in system simultaneously.Today Lucid has brought their new leading-edge technology to fruition on a motherboard built by MSI that employs...
