DigiTimes is claiming that their sources are indicating a pending delay for Intel's next generation Santa Rosa notebook platform. With initial indications showing a small delay into Q1 2006, it is somewhat surprising to hear that the shipping date is now rumored to fall somewhere in Q2 2006. Although no official word regarding the delay has come thus far, Intel has emphasized that the platform will ship in the first half of the year. The delay will affect Taiwan notebook makers' shipment plans for next year, which had already taken into consideration the new platform's launch, according to the sources.... Read more...
Though it's capable of CrossFire support, the ASRock 775XFire-eSATA2 won't be breaking any speed records. Even so, with a price tag of around $80, this motherboard looks to be a great mainstream solution. "ASRock brings another cost/performance motherboard into the market with CrossFire capabilities. The 775XFire-eSATA2 is not the fastest motherboard, nor is it expected to be. However, as far as mainstream goes, a new chipset and CrossFire on the cheap is the right combination."... Read more...
Is Intel still at the front lines of processor technology, or are they just merely playing game of "me too!"? It's still too early to tell how well their next line of CPUs will perform, but for now, FiringSquad isn't holding anything back on their opinion of Intel's current state, and their "Core" problems."The problem is that Intel isn't responding to the AMD challenge. Or rather, the problem is that Intel is merely responding. There was a time when Intel dictated the features processors would have. Intel wasn't the company responding to competitors, rather it was they who were playing catch-up."... Read more...

Our friends at the TechReport have just posted and article that pits Intel's Pentium M 760 up against AMD's Turion 64 ML-44.  These two mobile CPUs represent the best single-core technology available from AMD and Intel for the mobile space.  Core Duo is here and dual-core Turions are on the Horizon, but if you want to know which processor reigns supreme in the current landscape, Scott's bound to give you his opinion. "ALTHOUGH INTEL HAS BEEN STRUGGLING on the desktop front of late, things on the mobile side have been going just fine, thank you. In fact, the Pentium M has been doing so well that Intel's desktop line will eventually... Read more...
DigiTimes reports that Intel's next-generation mobile platform (Santa Rosa) will be purposely delayed from its expected arrival at the end of 2006 and is now expected in March of 2007. Although the delay would seem to hint at some hardware issues, the platform supposedly is progressing as planned. The pushback for the timeline is actually an intentional move to allow notebook ODM's the opportunity to have ample time to design their new platforms and give Napa-based notebooks more opportunity in the marketplace.Taiwan makers estimate that global notebook shipments will reach 82-85 million units in 2006, up from an estimate of 65 million units for 2005, the sources said. With the planned launch... Read more...
Anandtech has just posted a review of Intel's new flagship consumer desktop motherboard dubbed the D975XBX. Obviously, everone is familiar with Intel's processors and chipsets. However, it is not widely known that Intel also makes complete motherboard solutions. In the past, Intel's motherboards lacked the robust features and functionality the major motherboard vendors were including. However with the company's latest offering it appears as though Intel could be giving motherboard vendors a run for their money. Intel took a few steps forward with the board and yet at the same time, it took a few steps back. Intel did rectify the D955XBK... Read more...
Two cores, one die, and possibly longer battery life? That's Intel's claim on their new notebook technology. Hardware Zone dedicates five pages to help explain how Intel's latest offering is better than anything before it. "Timing is everything when it comes to marketing, and none the more appreciative of perfect timing than the biggest name in the I.T. industry, Intel Corporation. Intel grabbed headlines everywhere when it effected a new 'Intel. Leap ahead.' brand identity on the 3rd of January 2006 that sought to position the Intel name around a platform model focusing on four key market segments - digital home, enterprise, health and mobile....

Both Anandtech and PC Perspective report that NVIDIA has just launched two new nForce4 chipsets for the Intel platform that will allow it to offer chipsets for the entire market segment. Here, the nForce4 SLI XE will address the performance mainstream segment with the nForce4 Ultra handling the mainstream segment. One of the most visible changes with these MCP's is the lack of the somewhat controversial NVIDIA active-armor networking engine and hardware-accelerated firewall. In return for lacking these features, we finally see the welcomed presence of HD Audio support (Azalia). In the end, it looks as though the Intel platform just received a healthy bust of energy and it will be interesting... Read more...
Good morning all. There's some exciting news coming from NVIDIA today. The company is launching two new chipsets for the Intel platform in an effort to capture some more of the mainstream market.

Just in time for the weekend, Fudo has posted an interesting bit of news regarding the next motherboard ATI will be cooking up for Intel. Apparently, we won't be seeing any earth-shattering changes in this next iteration aside from the switch from DDR to DDR2 memory. However, Fudo does leave us with a hint regarding the next motherboard to follow and suggests we might even see HDMI (and likely a much more powerful IGP). The next motherboard based on ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset is scheduled for Q1 2006 and will be known as Grand County 2. Intel will use the rather less impressive D101GGC2 name for it. The board will be very similar to its predecessor,... Read more...

Digitimes is reporting that "sources" claim Apple will be introducing a new notebook utilizing Intel Robson Cache Technology.  Basically, the system uses NAND flash memory for booting and running most commonly run programs.  Along with major improvements in boot times, battery life should be improved significantly as power consumption is reduced as NAND has no moving parts. "According to industry observers, there are three possible ways Apple can deploy Robson technology in its notebook. The most convenient way would be to equip the device with a NAND flash disk on module (DOM) that would plug into an ATA slot. Another method... Read more...
The Inquirer reports that AMD has just announced their answer to Intel's ViiV multimedia campaign. Dubbed AMD Live!, this new brand will be found on various upcoming multimedia desktops and notebooks. With both AMD and Intel pushing hard on this new front, it should be interesting to see how the market reacts.AMD said that it will extend the AMD Live! Brand to consumer multimedia desktop and notebook PCs which are likely to tip up in the middle of this year. It's unlikely to have anything like the reach of Intel's ambitious Viiv scheme, which pulls in a hefty number of partners but AMD did say its partners include Alienware, ATI, Broadcom, Motorola, Nero, Nvidia and Via. It's also unlikely to... Read more...

It seems as though supposedly Intel is planning to drop the "Intel Inside" logo and slogan, come the new year, at least according to the Inq.  Fact, fiction?  Who knows for sure but Intel definitely seems poised and ready for a change in the consumer processor space. The change is part of some other branding ideas that the back room boys and girls in Intel's marketing department have been having. Yonah will be called 'Core Solo' for the single core processor, the dual core Pentium M will have the label 'Core Duo'. Future plans for any Dick Van Dyke processor called 'Core Blimey' can be safely discounted.I can hear it now, "The Dynamic Duo"...  God help... Read more...
