“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”?

notebook processors  one of the leading notebook manufacturers for years. This embarrassment will not kill the product line, especially since the fault seems to lie with Intel. Although the foul-up will likely not cause Toshiba to reevaluate its relationship with Intel (euphemism for considering whether to dump Intel), we expect Toshiba (and any other vendors affected) will pay closer attention to products and components they receive from Intel. For Intel, this is the Nth in a string (growing longer all the time) of

Intel 820 Chipset Delays Again, Again, Again…


Intel has announced further delays in its next generation of entry-level processors, once again due to problems in the 820 chipset. We are shocked, we tell you, shocked, to learn of such a thing.

notebook processors  820 Chipset Delays Again, Again, Again… Intel 820 Chipset Delays Again, Again, Again C. 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

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?

notebook processors  greater success in the notebook market - mobile devices (Palm, Pocket PC, and the like) have a number of processors already available, and it's unclear that the extra battery life is a big selling feature for the smaller devices. User Recommendations Until Transmeta's claims can be verified on a production-grade notebook, potential corporate customers should watch, but not buy. If Crusoe-based notebooks demonstrate battery life on a par with their claims, then these notebooks have the potential to be a hi Read More

Working Together More Efficiently: Mapping Out the Company’s Business Processes


Enterprises must collaborate or they will surely stagnate. Guarded proprietary information has given way to collaborative approaches where information is shared both inside and outside the enterprise’s walls. To survive, an enterprise must be flexible enough to collaborate externally with suppliers and partners while fostering the same environment with its employers.

To extend the power of enterprise applications beyond the few, enter extended ERP solutions. Key Tenets Organizations should be prepared to collaborate, organize and extend their business systems. Some key tenets-intended to support those decisions: keeping everything in one central database gu Read More

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'.

notebook processors  in CPU-Land Turmoil in CPU-Land R. Krause - September 18, 2000 Event Summary August 29, 2000 - Intel Corp. will recall its 1.13GHz Pentium III chip. Intel officials said the company is recalling the chip due to a problem that could cause certain applications to freeze. We found some marginality in the part within certain temperatures within the operating range and certain code sequences (in applications), said spokesman George Alfs. We're not happy with the chip and we're going to pull it back. Read More

Role of In-memory Analytics in Big Data Analysis


Organizations today need to handle and manage increasingly large volumes of data in various formats and coming from disparate sources. Though the benefits to be gained from analysis of such big data are immense, so are the inherent challenges, including need for rapid analysis. In his article, TEC BI analyst Jorge García discusses how in-memory analytics helps address these challenges and reap the benefits hidden in big data.

notebook processors  of In-memory Analytics in Big Data Analysis In a previous article , I discussed big data and the need for a big data solution to handle, manage, and derive valuable insight from large volumes of data in various formats and coming from disparate sources. Here I discuss the role that in-memory technologies plays in big data analysis and the potential of this technology to change the business intelligence (BI) landscape and the industry technology space. But first we need to understand the basics.   A Ba Read More
