Turmoil in CPU-Land
Intel announces a recall of the barely-shipping 1.13 GHz Pentium III, and AMD announces the head of its PC processor unit is 'leaving to pursue other interests'

cpu pentium iii  cases winning (relative to CPU performance). This has elevated AMD from its former me-too status to a serious contender in the Intel-architecture market. We don't envision AMD surpassing Intel any time soon (especially because of AMD's non-presence in the server market), but this stuff does make life interesting. For AMD , we envision a slight loss of momentum (as generally happens when a key person leaves), but we do not presently believe the long-term effects will hurt AMD greatly. User

Intel Delays Shipment of 820 Chipset


Intel Corp. has postponed (for the second time) the launch of its 820 chipset.

cpu pentium iii  Delays Shipment of 820 Chipset Event Summary September 24, 1999 - Intel Corp. will delay, indefinitely, the launch of its 820 chipset, the second chip delay announced by Intel this week. The 820 chipset is intended to replace the 440BX chipset currently used with Pentium II and Pentium III processors. Intel says the 820 chipset will improve overall system performance by reducing bottlenecks in memory performance and graphic performance. Rambus (whose memory forms the base for the 820) is currently Read More

Intel Chip Shortage Continuing


Intel Corporation has yet again been unable to meet the shipment requirements of a major PC manufacturer. This time it is Dell, one of Intel's strongest allies.

cpu pentium iii  has company as Dell's CPU supplier. AMD must certainly be happy about this, but obviously should not get complacent. In addition to capitalizing on Intel's woes in the present, they must also look to the future. The 300mm wafers to be used in Intel's Fab 22 do not threaten AMD presently, but AMD will need to have its own 300mm facility to maintain a lower cost structure. User Recommendations This announcement has its greatest short-term effect on users committed to Dell and needing either the latest, Read More

IBM’s Newest NUMA-Q Server to Handle 64 Intel CPUs


IBM announced its latest NUMA-Q server, the E410. Its ability to house up to 64 Intel CPUs represents a doubling of the “largest” current system, the ES7000 from Unisys, and an eight-times increase over the largest current mainstream Intel offerings from Compaq, Dell, and HP.

cpu pentium iii  to Handle 64 Intel CPUs R. Krause - June 19, 2000 Event Summary May 24, 2000 [Source: IBM] - IBM introduced the world's most powerful Intel-based server, the 64-processor NUMA-Q E410, along with the industry's most affordable technology-leading two-way server, the Netfinity 3500 M20. These products represent the high-end and the low-end of the industry's most scalable Intel-based server line for e-businesses running Windows 2000 and Linux environments. Powered by Intel's new 700 MHz Pentium III Xeon Read More

IBM’s DB2 Tops TPC Benchmark List


Leapfrogging the rest of the transaction-processing world, IBM has posted TPC-C results more than tripling the highest current transaction-per-minute figure.

cpu pentium iii  results for 64- and 96-CPU clusters - there's an apparent near-doubling of performance, but the price/performance appears worse ($32.28/tpmC for Netfinity vs. $19.12/tpmC). However, these results were withdrawn because Microsoft's SQL Server 2000, which Compaq used, violated some of the testing rules [1]. Thus, it is unclear whether a re-test of a Compaq cluster will provide equivalent results. From a software standpoint , this is potentially a big win for IBM and DB2, and potentially a setback for Read More

An Introduction to Load Balancing


Is it possible for a business to ensure uninterrupted, secure, and high-performance access to network-based business applications and web sites? Yes. With network load balancers, user requests are evenly distributed among available servers so that individual servers do not become overwhelmed. Learn about the basics of load balancing and how it can improve the performance and security of your business applications.

cpu pentium iii  have different requirements for CPU usage, I/O throughput, etc., it is possible to increase eficiency by using some servers to handle transactions, and others to provide storage or other functions. Also, with Layer 7 request switching, certain users can be directed to higher-power servers to provide the highest service level. Global server load balancing In addition to enhancing load balancing with Layer 7 request switching, organizations can beneit from class server load balancing (GSLB) across the Read More

Flaw in Intel Xeon 550 Chips: Shipments Stopped


Intel halted shipments of 550MHz Xeon processors to OEMs after flaw discovered.

This puts Dell Computer and Hewlett-Packard at a disadvantage, since they use the Saber board set as the core of their servers. Compaq Computer will have both a short-term advantage and potential disadvantage. The disadvantage arises from the possibility of the marketplace not differentiating between the Read More

AMD Hooks Up with Transmeta - For Now


Advanced Micro Devices, Intel’s main CPU competition, has teamed up with Transmeta – another Intel competitor – in an effort to speed development on its 'Sledgehammmer' 64-bit processor.

cpu pentium iii  for its future 64-bit CPU, called Sledgehammer , is rumored to be sending systems to software developers. What is different about these systems is that they will use the Crusoe processor and special code morphing software produced by Transmeta , a rival to both AMD and Intel Corporation . Market Impact This may help AMD reduce the gap between release of the Sledgehammer processor and release of compatible third-party software. AMD apparently believes that Transmeta's software can simulate the Read More

Clientele CRM.NET Suite Gains Scalability, Smart Client from the .NET Framework and XML Web Services


When The Clientele Group of Epicor Software Corporation was faced with scalability and performance limits in their CRM software, they redesigned their application around the Microsoft® .NET Framework. A server architecture based on SQL Server™ 2000 and XML Web services removes their scalability limits, and supports multiple client applications. A smart client built with Windows® Forms gives customer support personnel a responsive application that is easy to deploy and update. A Web portal built with ASP.NET Web Forms gives authorized customers access to the same records as customer support sees internally. The new architecture can support 500 users on a single dual-CPU server, and offers many ways to scale up and out.

Bus-Tech Speeds up Mainframe DB2 Access


Bus-Tech has announced the EnterpriseExpress Adapter for DB2 Access. The product is a PCI-compliant ESCON adapter using IBM's Multipath Channel+ (MPC+) protocol to provide the highest possible throughput between Windows NT applications and DB2 Universal Database for OS/390 using IBM's DB2 Connect.

The adapter was tested with DB2 CAE (Client Application Enabler) clients accessing data on DB2 for OS/390 V6.1 running on OS/390 V2R6 and VTAM Version 4.4. MPC+ is IBM's fastest host communication channel protocol. User Recommendations Customers using DB2 on a mainframe for their back-end database should strongly consider an ESCON connection. In addition, TCP/IP should be considered as the protocol of choice instead of SNA. With the recent Read More
