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 switching  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

In addition to the battery life issue, Crusoe utilizes Mobile Linux , a scaled-down version of the increasingly popular Linux OS, and something Transmeta calls Code Morphing software, which allows the processor to be compatible with x86-based applications. Microsoft does not expect the Tablet to ship until 2003 Market Impact This is interesting on a number of Read More

The Convergent Mediation Solution--Competitive Advantage Enabler


The notion of having disparate mediation systems in today’s service oriented telecommunications industry is no longer valid. The accurate and timely knowledge of customer information, such as usage patterns, preferences, spending habits and duration can provide competitive advantages to service providers. Learn about convergent mediation systems that can support multiple service types (voice, data, content) in this white paper.

The aggregation load is spread across 10 separate CPUs to allow for multi-processing efficiency. Such multi-processing capabilities also made it easier for SK Telecom to migrate from its legacy mediation systems. The multi-processing scheme partitions computing so that the legacy system processes old usage data streams while the more advanced mediation engine handles the evolutionary 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 switching  Ofloading can signiicantly lower CPU utilization and even enable fewer servers to handle application loads. TCP Multiplexing: TCP overhead can slow any application’s performance. TCP optimization reduces the number of client connections each application server has to deal with while optimizing server response. The result is a server that can support an increased number of users. This can extend the life of existing hardware while delivering application content with much better performance. TCP Read More

Intel Small Server Market


Who are the key players in the market segment of Intel small servers? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each, and when is one more appropriate than another?

cpu switching  set (in the 1-2 CPU space) is at least two years old. Although the server market is less energetic than the desktop market, this is still a long time. Even the LPr is 18 months old - when it first appeared, it had a groundbreaking feature set, but now it is getting to be just one of the crowd. Marketing/Website Issues Normally we wouldn't comment on this, but: HP's marketing people need to be more attentive to the image the NetServer section of the website presents. We don't know if it's the Read More

Will Intel Take a Loss on Each CPU, but Make It Up in Volume?


There are reports that Dell may buy AMD’s Spitfire chip. If the reports are true, then look for competition to produce lower prices.

cpu switching  chose Intel for the CPU in its upcoming X-Box gaming console. If Intel decides to play the price-cut card, this will put a damper on Intel's profit expectations, since Dell now occupies the top position in U.S. PC sales, having passed Compaq last year. Because of the bus speed at which the Spitfire is expected to operate (200 MHz), its performance should exceed that of the Intel Celeron - the chip against which it's designed to compete. If AMD can post great performance numbers against Celeron, and keep Read More

Red Hat Plays 'Love You, Love You Not' with CPUs


Red Hat has announced the release of Alpha Deluxe, its version of Linux for computers based on Compaq’s Alpha CPU. At the same time, the company announced it would drop support for Sun’s Sparc processor.

cpu switching  and less on older CPU performance tests ( viz . SPECint95, SPECfp95), we'll take that bet. We understand that benchmarks are only an indicator of performance - but how will customers know how great your systems are if the only benchmarks to which they can refer have little, if anything, to do with their intended application. In effect, there is minimal Alpha presence on the desktop. That leaves the low-end server market as the means to improve volumes and thus lower system cost. That implies a natural 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 switching  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

Dell's 8-CPU Intel Servers Increasing Its Enterprise Focus

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 switching  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

Best Practices for a Data Warehouse on Oracle Database 11g


Companies are recognizing the value of an enterprise data warehouse (EDW) that provides a single 360-degree view of the business. But to ensure that your EDW performs and scales well, you need to get three things right: the hardware configuration, the data model, and the data loading process. Learn how designing these three things correctly can help you scale your EDW without constantly tuning or tweaking the system.

cpu switching  components - from the CPU to the disks - are orchestrated to work together to guarantee the maximum possible IO throughput. But how do you go about sizing such a system? You must first understand how much throughput capacity is required for your system and how much throughput each individual CPU or core in your configuration can drive. Both pieces of information can be determined from an existing system. However, if no environment specific values are available, a value of approximately 200MB/sec IO Read More
