Intel today took the wraps off its brand new, low-power, high-performance microarchitecture named Silvermont. The technology is aimed squarely at low-power requirements in market segments from smartphones to the data center. Silvermont will be the foundation for a range of innovative products beginning to come to market later this year, and will also be manufactured using Intel’s leading-edge, 22nm Tri-Gate SoC manufacturing process, which brings significant performance increases and improved energy efficiency.

Supercomputer Stampede Powered by Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors officially dedicated at Texas Advanced Computing Center
Today at Texas Advanced Computing Center in Austin, the supercomputer Stampede – currently the largest Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors’ based system was officially dedicated. Super computer Stampede delivers 10 Petaflops of performance and is powered by combination of 12.800 Intel Xeon processors E5 product family and 6.880 Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. Stampede is intended to take on problems like modeling climate change, predicting earthquakes, studying viruses DNA and molecular behavior, modeling hurricanes and simulating space.
Cooler Master unveils industry first CPU cooler designed with Evolutionary Horizontal Vapor Chamber technology- V4 GTS
Cooler Master today unveils yet another industry first in CPU cooling, the V4 GTS CPU Cooler. The V4 GTS CPU Cooler is the first ever mainstream CPU heatsink to utilize horizontal vapor chamber cooling and combine it with heat pipe technology, V4 GTS is equipped to cool processors with some of the most demanding heat outputs. The V4 GTS includes a 100% pure copper horizontal vapor chamber base that spreads heat up to 8x faster than heat pipes helps cool your processor like never before. This works in tandem with a full copper quad heat pipe array that quickly transfers heat from the vapor chamber to the heatsink fins that are uniquely engineered for the V4 GTS.

AMD today launched the first APU under FirePro family — the AMD FirePro A300. Designed for entry-level and mainstream desktop workstations, the FirePro A300 series features two models — the FirePro A300 and FirePro A320. Both of them are quad-core processors with 384 stream processors. The FirePro A300 has a 3.4GHz base clock speed, 760MHz graphics clock, and 65W TDP. On the other hand the FirePro A320 offers 3.8GHz base clock speed, 800MHz graphics clock, and 100W TDP.Continue reading
Last month Intel rolled out 3rd generation Intel Core processors for mainstream consumer and now it has launched Intel Core vPro third-generation processors for business users. The new processor platform provides businesses and intelligent system designs the security, performance and form factor improvements needed to compute with confidence.Continue reading
Finally AMD has gone official with its second generation A-Series “Trinity” APUs. Newly launched APUs for notebooks are — the A10-4600M (quad-core), A8-4500M (quad-core), and A6-4400M (dual-core). On the other hand the quad-core A10-4655M and dual-core A6-4455M are designed for ultrabooks. Interestingly, these APUs boast of up to 29% increase in performance and feature the next-generation AMD “Piledriver” CPU core with 3rd generation AMD Turbo Core technology, where power is dynamically shifted between the CPU and GPU depending on application needs, effectively providing a more responsive experience that can boost CPU frequencies to up to 3.2 GHz.Continue reading
Finally, the third generation Intel Core family “Ivy Bridge” processors are out! The new chips are designed for desktops, laptops and all-in-ones, and are the world’s first to use 22nm 3-D tri-Gate transistor technology. The combination of Intel’s cutting-edge 3-D tri-gate transistor technology and architectural enhancements help make possible up to double the 3-D graphics and HD media processing performance compared with Intel’s previous generation of chips.Continue reading
