  In this our first article of 2005, we're going to take a look back at recent history and examine a driving force in computing technology that was dominant throughout much of 2004.  Intel launched its mobile Centrino technology in mid-2003.  It took a while to ramp up but once this new platform initiative gathered steam, it took off like a rocket for what has been a hugely successful marketing and technology development effort.  The centerpiece of this new architecture was Intel's new Pentium M processor core, then code named "Banias", which has since been enhanced and updated in .09 micron process technology, now known as the "Dothan" Pentium M core....

Good morning all!  Man it's been odd listening to the other guys talking about snow and cold weather.  Moving to NC last April, Winter now has a new definition to me.  What used to be cold and snowy is now more sunny and warm.  Heck, the last few days were in the 70s.  A part of me misses the snow, but the other part really likes wearing shorts in December :)  Anyhow, you're here for news, not a weather report, so let's start things off... Ultra 500W Titanium ATX PSU @ Viper Lair: "The Ultra 500W Titanium ATX Power Supply may not have a modular cabling system, or flashy fans or windows, or even sleeved cabling for the most part, but it does have an excellent...

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 and their relative performance versus Intel's flagship CPUs.  Today we've got Intel's latest...

Some of us love lusting after the finer things in life: a Mercedes-Benz SLR, Akoya pearls, Beluga caviar, and Clos du Mesnil champagne. While Intel's 925X chipset doesn't exactly fit in with those other high-end luxuries, it does happen to sit atop a long list of distinguished core logic products, offering the latest in technology and a fair dose of performance (even if it doesn't fly above and beyond the 875P it replaces). Unfortunately, when it comes time to pay the bills, reality is more along the lines of a Honda Civic, McDonald's, a six pack (if you're old enough), and Ritz crackers. If you're finding the latest round of 925X motherboards (characterized by Gigabyte's GA-8ANXP-D, a nearly... Read more...
Good afternoon HotHardware fans! Just in case you missed the link at the top of the page, we wanted to let you know that we've just posted a shoot-out between two high-end i925X motherboards from the Abit and Asus, the AA8 DuraMAX and the P5AD2 Premium. These are some of the first enthusiast class boards to arrive that support Intel's new LGA775 processors. We ran quite a few benchmarks and compared them to an i875 throughout.

  Intel's recent new platform launch of the i915 and i925X chipsets marked a major overhaul of the Pentium 4 system level architecture and brought with it a host of new features and technologies.  At the processor and IO levels, the addition of DDR2 memory and the PCI Express interface significantly increased theoretical available system bandwidth. In addition, the new LGA775 socket and accompanying package for the P4 brings significantly better thermal characteristics to the newPrescottcore, which was getting to be known as a real nuclear reactor of a chip. When all was said and done, Intel had made obvious enhancements to the platform and added new features to it, such as high-definition... 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 of Intel's major platform launch centered around their new Alderwood and Grantsdale chipsets. ...

  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 out class the competition, the end user community enjoys yet another incremental performance enhancement. ...

  Intel's Pentium 4 3.06GHz Processor Intel breaks 3GHz barrier and  introduces Hyperthreading to the mainstream By, Dave Altavilla and Chris Angelini November 14, 2002   It was only two short months ago that we gave you our hands on experiences with Intel's last flagship processor for the PC, the 2.8GHz Pentium 4.  As we neared what seemed to be an almost mythical clock speed of 3GHz, we paused to wonder for a moment, whether or not the average user could take advantage of the power of a Pentium 4 at this clock speed or the future Athlon XP3000+, for that matter.  Again, that pause we had was only for a moment and we snapped back to reality with a hearty Neanderthal...

  The Pentium 4 2.8GHz Processor Intel ups the ante once again By, Dave Altavilla August 26, 2002 Strategic Marketing, most larger brand name companies have this function rolled up into a Marketing Manager's responsibilities.  Otherwise, in the case of Intel and AMD, they actually have a Strategic Marketing team who's sole purpose in life is to define the strategies and game plans from a product and branding perspective, that will maximize penetration within the customer base versus the competition.  Often times, Strategic Marketing means trying to get an edge on the competition by learning everything you can about them and leveraging your own strategies, against their weaknesses...

  Intel's Pentium 4 with 533MHz Bus and The i850E Chipset 2.4 and 2.53GHz performance with a 533MHz Front Side Bus By, Dave Altavilla May 6, 2002 There are many architectural attributes of Intel's Pentium 4 processor, that will drive incremental performance for CPU core, as the months and years roll on, in their battle against their primary competitor, Advanced Micro Devices.  Intel engineered the P4 core with a staggeringly deep 20 stage pipeline, that allows clock frequencies to scale with ease.  There are certainly pros and cons to having this deeply pipelined architecture.  However, in a market where MHz and GHz are king, not only will more clock cycles drive performance,...
