[6 May 2010 | Comments Off on Intel Planning To Launch 600GB 25nm SSDs that Year? | ]

Solid-state drives are becoming more and more popular nowadays, and Intel apparently has some big plans for SSDs that holiday season. Come the fourth quarter Intel is planning to introduce drives that offer capacities larger than what is currently offered. The chip giant is busy working on the more efficient 25nm MLC NAND flash memory, which can offer capacities such as 160GB, 300GB and 600GB, which should more or less replace the company’s existing 34nm X25-M range. Intel should also be coming up with a high capacity 1.8-inch version that is …

[15 Apr 2010 | Comments Off on New Dual Core Atom Chip For Netbooks On The Way | ]

Intel’s CEO, Paul Otellini, has confirmed that the chip giant will soon be rolling out a new dual-core Atom processor for netbooks sometime in the next few months. Rumors regarding a new dual-core Atom processor for netbooks have been going around for some date now, and it shouldn’t be too hard for Intel, considering that it already has dual-core Atom processors for nettops, though netbooks have been confined to single-core Atoms so far. Hopefully the dual-core versions for netbooks will still go easy on the notebook’s battery life.

[14 Apr 2010 | Comments Off on Intel Plans New Atom Processor-based System-on-chip | ]

On the second day of Intel’s Developer Forum, the chip giant has unveiled a new system-on-chip (SoC) version of its popular Atom processor, nicknamed Tunnel Creek. The chip will be based on the upcoming Moorestown Atom chip, but will be targeting embedded devices, such as home media or in–car entertainment systems. Tunnel Creek will incorporate the memory controller and graphics core, and might even negate the need for an external chipset to handle other tasks. whether needed, the design would allow partners to come up with a custom chipset that …

[8 Apr 2010 | Comments Off on New Interface From Intel Can Read Your Thoughts | ]

We’re all lazy, and whether we could have it our way, we’d just sit back and finish all our computer work with our arms folded. While that’s far from the reality today, Intel might be trying to help us achieve just that, as the chip giant is working on mental telepathy methods for man-to-machine communications in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon. Basically what they’re trying to do is come up with an interface that can map your brain’s electrical neuron activity, and decode those signals with the help of fancy algorithms. …
