Intel sneaks out low-power microserver chip

Intel has not made a big fuss about it, but the chip maker has kicked out a promised 15 watt processor aimed at the fledgling and sometimes cloudy microserver market. The chip, which is paradoxically called the Pentium 350, was promised back in March when Intel pre-launched the "Sandy Bridge-DT" Xeon E3-1200 series of chips …

Report: SAS controller bug holding up Xeon E5 launch

Everyone was expecting for Intel to launch the "Sandy Bridge-EP" Xeon E5 processors back in September for delivery in the fourth quarter. Butfor reasons that Intel has never explained – much less admitted that this was the original launch schedule – the E5 processor and its related "Patsburg" chipset has been pushed out to an " …

Acer Aspire S3 Core i7 Ultrabook

Review The Acer Aspire S3 is a major new entrant to the emerging market for ‘ultraportables’ – ultra-thin but powerful notebook PCs with reduced components to keep the space and weight to a minimum. It won’t suit everyone, but if you like the idea of a portable Windows computer than can be carried in one hand or tucked under your …

SGI ramping up for big Xeon E5 server push

Like everybody else in the server racket, Silicon Graphics is waiting somewhat patiently for Intel to get its "Sandy Bridge-EP" Xeon E5 processors out the door, so it can launch a whole new generation of machines. Or, in the case of SGI, several different generations. Still, SGI has managed to sell existing Xeon and Opteron …

Intel Ivy Bridge set for Spring 2012 debut

'Ivy Bridge', Intel's next generation of processor technology, will be unveiled toward the end of Q1 2012 rather than the early part of the year.

Toshiba Qosmio X770 17.3in 3D gaming notebook

Review When Toshiba UK announced the launch of the Qosmio X770 3D – a new gaming laptop with stereoscopic 3D graphics and a 17.3in HD screen, I immediately thought: could this be an Alienware killer? Toshiba has been said to lag behind other manufacturers when it comes to high-end gaming laptops, but after spending time with the X770 I …

Apple MacBook Air 11in Core i5 notebook

Review For years this particular Mac user preferred to carry around an X-Series ThinkPad, despite having a house full of Apple laptops. That's because Apple could offer nothing with comparable size and weight. It was worth putting up with Windows or Ubuntu to gain the convenience of a smaller lighter machine. Apple MacBook Air 11in …

Intel: You may already be using Xeon E5 without knowing it

IDF 2011 Do you know why Intel hasn't launched the Sandy Bridge-EP Xeon E5 processor for two-socket servers? Neither do we, but after attending Intel Developer Forum last week, we have some pretty good guesses. Given the relative dearth of processor news at the IDF show, the attendees and vendors that El Reg spoke to at the show had …

Dell XPS 15z 15.6in Core i5 notebook

Review When the 15z was announced there was no small amount of fanfare, not least due to Dell’s interesting claim that this was the thinnest 15in laptop in existence. In no time at all, it had been pointed out that the accompanying asterisk needed to be the size of an actual star, since the machine the 15z was aping, the Apple MacBook …

Intel's Xeon E5 server chips due 'early 2012'

IDF 2011 Intel CEO Paul Otellini gave the opening keynote at the company's Developer Forum this morning in San Francisco, and uncharacteristically, he didn't have much to say about servers.

Apple MacBook Pro 17in 2011

Review A slap across the face is what I need. It’s the only language I understand. My problem is that I have played with too many Apple MacBooks over the past 18 months. They were starting to look similar, a little standard perhaps, maybe even ordinary. Apple MacBook Pro 17in Quad core as standard: Apple's 17in MacBook Pro So I …
