Just the other day, we gave you a sneak peek at a couple of motherboards Asus had coming down the pipeline that featured USB 3.0 and SATA 6G support, the P7P55D-E Premium and the P6X58D Premium. If you haven't seen the original post, be sure to check it out here. In it, we talk about the boards' PLX PCI Express Gen 2 switch implementation and how it connects to the NEC USB 3.0 and Marvell SATA 6G controller chips.       P7P55D-E Premium and P6X58D Premium with USB 3.0 and SATA 6G It turns out that one of the boards we showed you, the P55-Express based P7P55D-E Premium is very close to hitting the market. In fact, we already have on in house were able to run a few quick... Read more...
We've just received some interesting images and information regarding a couple of motherboards Asus has coming down the pipeline. The two motherboards you see pictured below are the P7P55D-E Premium and the P6X58D Premium, for Intel's Lynnfield (Core i5, Core i7 800 series) and Bloomfield (Core i7 900 series) platforms, respectively.   As its name suggests, the P7P55D-E Premium is built around Intel's P55 Express chipset and sports an LAG1156 socket for Core i5 and Core i7 800 series processors. Alternatively, the P6X58D Premium features Intel's X58 Express chipset and an LGA1366 socket, for more powerful Core i7 900 series processors.   It is not the core logic on these products that...

Last week, we predicted that Intel's strong product mix and fabulous Q3 results could have negatively impacted AMD's own numbers at a time when the company is struggling to return to profitability. While AMD has yet to return to the black, the company's third quarter results are very good. Company executives weren't willing to flatly predict a strong Q4—the market is still uncertain—but the company may well hit its original Q4 target. The conference call packed a lot of information into 60 minutes, so let's start unpacking it—numbers first.AMD's total revenue in Q3 was $1.396 billion, up 18 percent over the second quarter, but down 22 percent year-on-year. That last isn't surprising—Intel's own... Read more...
G.Skill Announces its ECO Memory: DDR3 at just 1.35V Taipei, Taiwan - 15th October, 2009 - G.Skill International Co. Ltd., manufacturer of extreme performance memory and solid-state storage with solid quality, has today released its ECO low voltage, 1.35V dual channel DDR3 memory for Intel Lynnfield Core i5 and Core i7 platforms. Compared to the current DDR3 standard voltage of 1.65V, G.Skill’s ECO memory modules require 18% less VDIMM. This can have a great contribution to power efficiency, environmental friendliness and ultimately saves G.Skill customers money. In addition, the lower voltages decreases a system’s operating temperature, resulting in improved stability. G.Skill’s own internal... Read more...

The enthusiast scene is filled with consumers with do-it-yourself attitudes who regularly build their own systems from scratch. In fact, some feel that part of the fun associated with a new build is comparing prices online and asking for advice on tech forums in order to configure the ideal system. Although there are obvious benefits of going this route, there are those who may not have the time to find the lowest prices on each individual component or inclination to assemble a rig unassisted. While an abundance of options are available for consumers who prefer a pre-built system, they usually come with a few compromises. These compromises consist of the use lower quality components to fill out... Read more...

Although Intel talked about their upcoming 32nm Westmere-based processors at IDF, and even showed off a few demos of the next-gen core at work right on stage, we still got in some private face-time with a few Intel reps and engineers in a closed door session to glean a few more details. A couple of the items we saw firsthand were Intel's upcoming Clarkdale (not to be confused with Clarksfield) and Arrandale processors. If you're unfamiliar with Clarkdale and Arrandale, they are upcoming mainstream desktop and mobile processor offerings based on the Nehalem microarchitecture, manufactured on Intel's 32nm process node. Like other Nehalem derivatives, Clarkdale and Arrandale will feature Intel Turbo... Read more...

For quite some time now, Intel has been the undisputed leader when it comes to laptop CPU performance. This advantage comes from the fact that Intel has successfully scaled its desktop processor technology for use in the mobile platform. That trend continues with the latest mobile processor platform being unleashed today from Intel: the "Clarksfield"-based Core i7 Mobile processor family and the new PM55 Express Chipset. This marks the first time that the "Nehalem" Core i7 microarchitecture has been ported over to the mobile side. The fact that the mobile version of Nehalem makes its debut only two weeks following the launch of Intel's Core i5 ("Lynnfield") mainstream desktop CPU and P55 Express... Read more...

In the past 12 months, AMD has revamped its entire product line around its 45nm Shanghai architecture; the company now has a range of Athlon II and Phenom II parts that stretches from an Athlon II X2 at 2.8GHz/1MB L2 at $60 to the unlocked Phenom II X4 965 "Black Edition" at $245 with 512K of L2 per core and a 6MB L3. Shanghai, as we've discussed on more than one occasion, was a big step in the right direction for AMD—it may not offer competitive performance vs. Core i7/Core i5, but it competes quite well with Intel's Core 2 Duo. Unfortunately, the company's stronger product line has yet to bolster its sagging market share. According to the research firm iSuppli, AMD's share of the global PC... Read more...

With today's launch of their new "Lynnfield" based Core i5 and i7 800 series processors, and the accompanying P55 Express chipset, Intel's current flagship CPU microarchitecture--codenamed Nehalem--finally trickles its way down into the mainstream computing segment. Since Nehalem first landed on the desktop in the form of the Core i7 line of processors, it has unequivocally owned the performance segment of the market.  They are simply the fastest desktop processors currently available, bar none. But while the Core i7 was riding high, Intel still had the established Core 2 line-up to satisfy the mainstream, though meeting market demand for a refresh here as well was obviously the end game.Along...
