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 processor  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 Read More

Flaw in Intel Xeon 550 Chips: Shipments Stopped
Intel halted shipments of 550MHz Xeon processors to OEMs after flaw discovered.

cpu processor  damper on the overall eight-CPU Intel server market, because vendors will be unable to ship systems, and some customers will delay purchases until they see that the problem has been fully resolved. 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 Server Plans De-Railed
HotRail has discontinued development of the chipset AMD planned to use to break into the multiprocessor server market.

cpu processor  Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) CPUs to be used to build multiprocessor servers. HotRail has said it will refocus its efforts on the networking sector. Using HotRail's chipset with its own Athlon processors, AMD was expected to break into the multiprocessor (up to eight CPUs) server market for the first time, later this year. AMD is continuing to work toward getting a chipset that will allow it to ship a dual-processor server later this year. AMD division planning manager Byran Longmire said AMD plans to 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

cpu processor  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
Compaq's 8-CPU Intel Servers: the New
Compaq started shipping its eight-CPU Intel servers, the ProLiant 8000 and 8500, in late August. These are the first true eight-way Intel servers to ship.

cpu processor  s 8-CPU Intel Servers: the New Big Iron Product Background In late August, 1999, Compaq started shipments of its eight-CPU Intel servers, the ProLiant 8000 and 8500. The ProLiant 8X00 series is part of the next generation of Intel servers (along with offerings from Dell, HP, IBM, and others) which utilize the Profusion chipset. (This chipset allows servers to break through the previous limitation of four CPUs for the Intel architecture.) Although both products are geared toward the enterprise Read More
How to Overcome the Limits of Enterprise Software
Is your enterprise software really making you more competitive? After all, for years you’ve had to make expensive trade-offs between application dependability

cpu processor  strategic applications are frequently CPU- and/or data-intensive, and are also time-critical in nature. The combination of CPU/data-intensive and time-critical requires that the applications exhibit both scalability and dependability, a tall order that many traditional approaches fail to successfully or cost-effectively meet. In addition, agile enterprises also require that their strategic applications keep pace with the change of business. A new type of software-based application environment - the Read More
What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?
Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision

cpu processor  for the CPU and CPU subsystem. Another attempt at meaningful benchmarks was FLOPS ( FL oating-point OP erations per S econd), which rated processor speed. Computer manufacturers often quoted their systems as XX megaFLOPS (MFLOPS) or YY gigaFLOPS (GFLOPS). However, as users came to realize that FLOPS is an incomplete measure of system performance, other benchmarks were developed by groups such as the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (referred to as SPEC), a consortium of industry vendors Read More

“It’s a Notebook!” “It’s a Paperweight!” “Wait - It’s Both!”
Some Toshiba notebook buyers got a nasty surprise when they found their Intel CPU had died. Will Toshiba switch from “Intel Inside” to “AMD Instead”?

cpu processor  Inc. began complaining about CPU failures. The trouble was initially reported to Toshiba by owners of its Satellite 4100-series and Tecra 8000-series laptops featuring the 400MHz chips. In the last two weeks, Toshiba and Intel engineers narrowed the problem down to a circuit board, known as Mobile Module One, on which the CPUs were affixed, according to Intel spokesman Manny Vara in Santa Clara, Calif. Intel has several types of mobile modules, Vara said. Basically, there's something called over-voltage Read More

Transmeta to Intel/AMD: Eat Our Dust
Transmeta’s CEO says his company has a five-year lead on Intel’s and AMD’s technology. Reality or hype? And does it matter?

cpu processor  PC marketplace. Transmeta's Crusoe CPU was announced in January. Among Crusoe's notable features is its claim of super-low power consumption, resulting in much longer battery life for notebooks and other similar battery-powered computing devices. Current notebooks usually run out of power after 3-4 hours; Transmeta claims Crusoe-based notebooks can run up to eight hours without recharging. This extended life will (theoretically) allow cross-country fliers to work (or play Quake) for the entire flight. Read More

McNulty - June 30, 2000 Event Summary Timna, Intel's first so-called Smart Integration microprocessor, will be delayed until early 2001. The delay comes in the heels of related problems with Intel's 820 chipset. Most recently, Intel announced a recall of 820-based motherboards using a memory translator hub (MTH) to connect SDRAM memory. [See also Intel Faces 820 Chipset Problems (Again) .] The Timna delay is Read More
