'Occupy' affiliate claims Intel bakes SECRET 3G radio into vPro CPUs

Intel has apparently turned up one of the holiest of holy grails in the tech sector, accidentally creating an zero-power-consumption on-chip 3G communications platform as an NSA backdoor. The scoop comes courtesy of tinfoil socialist site Popular Resistance, in this piece written by freelance truther Jim Stone, who has just …

Acer Aspire Timeline M3 Ultra review

It seems safe to say that Ultrabooks haven’t given the PC market the shot in the arm that Intel was hoping for. The high prices haven’t helped, of course, and there also seems to be some evidence that many people are turned off by the relatively small 13in screens that dominate the Ultrabook category. Acer Aspire Timeline …

Super Micro to Sandy Bridge buyers: Go forth and multiply our profit

After nearly a year of foot-tapping by whitebox system and component maker Super Micro, it looks like its "Sandy Bridge" Xeon E5 server rollout is finally under way. All of the Xeon E5 processors have been launched by Intel, and therefore customers have begun buying either components or whole systems. In the final quarter of …

Servers save Intel's Q2, and probably the year

Intel was expected to start rolling out its "Sandy Bridge" Xeon E5 processors last fall, perhaps around September and then by the end of the year. And it is a good thing for Intel that this didn't happen. In the second quarter ended in June, Intel's Data Center Group – which includes processors, chipsets, motherboards, and …

AMD and Intel mainstream desktop CPUs

Review It’s fair to say that Intel has the very high end desktop processor market pretty much to itself, however, it’s a different story in the lower end of the food chain. Although Intel – through the sheer number of different processors it offers – seems to have it all its own way, AMD does make a good fight of it at a number of …

AMD and Intel extreme desktop CPU workout

Extreme PC Week Extreme PC Week Comparing high-end desktop processors that use the latest architecture from AMD and Intel these days, is a bit like comparing apples to walnuts. To pimp up a PC, there is only one company that really offers extreme processing power, and that’s Intel. But it’ll cost ya. In the extreme arena, AMD gave up arm …

Intel goes wide and deep with Xeon E5 assault

If you were planning on buying new servers in the coming weeks and months, Intel just gave you a whole lot of homework. And if you work at Advanced Micro Devices, you're getting some homework, too. Intel already has a slew of E5-2600 processors aimed at workhorse two-socket machines and a bunch of E7s in different flavors …

Dell fuels up Precision workstations with Xeon E5s

Intel has got its Xeon E5 processors out the door for boxes with one or two sockets and is getting ready to start the "Ivy Bridge" generation of desktop processors, and so it's no surprise Dell is revamping its Precision workstation lineup. The direct vendor is keeping momentum going in this fast-growing segment of the desktop …

Intel: Chinese server market second only to US

Intel's earnings call yesterday left server watchers wondering when China will outstrip the US as the world's biggest consumer of server chips. Intel's server business was not immune to shrinkage in the first quarter of 2012, and it would be easy to blame it on the delayed ramp of the Xeon E5-2600 processor for two-socket …

Intel Xeon E5s pruned for single-socket workstations

Intel's "Sandy Bridge-EP" Xeon E5 server chip launch extravaganza is not just about servers. It also includes some chippery for their forebears: old-fashioned, heavy-duty, desktop machines that are still called workstations. Intel usually has a variant of its single-socket server processors – in years gone by, the Xeon SP and …

Intel: The data center will be 'Xeon E5 Inside'

Diane Bryant, Intel's former CIO and now general manager of the chip giant's Data Center and Connected Systems Group, has gone from installing Xeon servers to run the company, to hawking them to all of the other companies on the planet. And, of course, making sure that Intel engineers cook up the next-generation Xeons so …

Dell flashes enhanced 12G racks of PowerEdge gear

To say that the x86 server makers are a little anxious for Intel to launch the "Sandy Bridge-EP" processors and get the Xeon E5 transition under way is a bit of an understatement. They are positively champing at the bit. Hewlett-Packard previewed its ProLiant Gen8 machine based on the Xeon E5s two weeks ago at its partner …
