Nested within a story on DigiTimes which covered the financial aspect of the last few months in the motherboard industry, there is a blurb regarding the launch of Intel's Conroe CPU. Apparently, motherboard vendors are looking towards a launch in the third quarter meaning that Intel would likely have a healthy performance advantage over AMD until they release their new architecture in the first half of 2007. According to sources at motherboard makers, Intel is scheduled to roll out the E6000 family of processors (codenamed Conroe) - the E6300 at US$209, E6400 at US$241, E6600 at US$316 and the E6700 at US$530 - to replace the Pentium D900 dual-core CPUs. However, a spokesperson... Read more...

This is not your average overclock, that's for sure. The folks over at Madshrimps managed to get the chip running at 3650MHz, and a little beyond. The setup isn't practical for any kind of long term use, but it's cool to see how far you can push some of these newer chips. "At -190°C you might be surprised how high you can overclock a CPU, with a few liters of Liquid Nitrogen to spare we poured it over a Pentium M 780 to see how high it would soar. Of course we don't want to destroy our hardware so we'll show you how to prevent condensation to save your hardware from failure"... Read more...

Josh from PenStar Systems has some interesting comments posted regarding Intel's upcoming 45nm process. Intel's manufacturing prowess is well known, but Josh seems to think many in the industry are a bit too optimistic at the moment.  Of course, time will tell... "For the past four months we have been hearing a lot about Intel's 65 nm process and the products being released on it. Unfortunately, I think that there is a lot of misunderstanding about where Intel exactly is at, as well as how their roadmap is shaping up. As tech enthusiasts we tend to be quite optimistic about how a certain product family or process node is going, because... Read more...

DigiTimes reports that Intel's next generation IGP slated for launch prior to Windows Vista will be equipped with enough performance features and functionality to pose a legitimate threat to ATI, VIA, and SiS. This new IGP will support DX9, Shader Model 3.0, OpenGL 1.5, Advanced De-Interlacing, MPEG-2 hardware acceleration, and HDMI output. Judging by the Intel IGP performance we witnessed during our review of the Alienware Area-51 m5500, this new IGP is just what the doctor ordered for Intel.For the Viiv consumer PC platform, Intel's G965 series will target the entry-level and mid-range segments, while its 975 line is focused on the high-end, extreme gaming market, according to the sources....

As expected, the Bluetooth SIG has chosen to piggyback on the Intel-backed WiMedia version of ultrawideband technology. Crafting the necessary specifications will take time, however. Bluetooth SIG members said they now expect the standard to be complete by the first quarter of 2007, with prototypes due by that fall. The first Bluetooth-over-WiMedia products are expected by early 2008, Michael Foley, chairman of the SIG, told reporters in a teleconference Tuesday morning.... Read more...

This weekend Intel sponsored an event for the Global Gaming League, the TransAtlantic Showdown, that pitted some of the best gamers from North America against rivals from across the Atlantic. The TransAltantic Showdown was more than just a gaming tournament though. There were a couple of interesting twists that made the TransAtlantic Showdown unique.  For one, a portion of the games were played on a jet as it flew over the Atlantic ocean. The jet had Internet connectivity via satellite and the gamers did their thing on Centrino Duo based notebooks.  In fact, the entire tournament was played on Centrino Duo notebooks.          We weren't able to participate...

This just in from our friends at Intel.  Marco was down in NYC covering this event and we'll have exciting action-photo coverage here shortly! Live from the Intel DUO ZONE in NYC!!! https://www.ggl.com/ As if this great 2on2 tournament wasn't enough, it seems the GGL and ClanBase staff realized what a shame it would be to bring together some of the best soloists in the world and not have them play a single live game. And so, in lieu of some great friendly competition, 4K^Grubby and T.MH]Moon will be facing off in a best-of-3 series to be broadcasting via WaaaghTV and GGL TV. The rules of the match are as follows: Game 1 is to be played on Gnoll Wood. Game 2 is to be played on either Echo... Read more...
About three months ago, we took a look at the Pentium Extreme Edition 955, which was Intel's first Extreme Edition processor built using the company's then brand-new 65nm manufacturing process. Each of the 955XE chip's two cores hummed along at a lofty 3.46GHz, and we found its performance to be quite good when compared to Intel's previous dual-core and single-core offerings. The Pentium Extreme Edition 955 was clearly Intel's fastest desktop dual-core processor in our tests, and due to the inherent benefits of the more advanced manufacturing process, the chip consumed much less power than its predecessor under-load, even though it was clocked almost 10% higher and was equipped with double the...

Not sure we agree with Hardcoreware.net's contention that "the playing field is level" now that AMD and Intel both offer dual-core processors, but if you want to see how the Athlon 64 X2 stacks up against a Pentium D, they've got some benchmarks for you to chew on. When you're done though, make sure to check out our Athlon 64 FX-60 and Pentium Extreme Edition 955 articles as well."Deciding between an Athlon64 and a Pentium 4 used to be a generally tough decision. AMD was easily faster in games, but the Pentium 4 was always backed by superior platforms (Intel's own chipsets), better multitasking performance thanks to HyperThreading, and generally better audio and video encoding performance....
