     Dunnington & Nehalem for Q3

    Recently, there seems to be a steady stream of documents leaked to the press concerning future CPUs for Intel servers.


    The text on the bottom indicates amongst other things that performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components..., and therefore these are only approximations provided by this company. Nevertheless, performances in FPU appear promising and it won’t be gamers that complain.


    In the Expandable (EX) segment, we can see that the Dunnington should be available in non-negligible quantities starting in the third quarter and that they will quickly approach the 50% mark.


    The arrival of the first Nehalems destined for the Efficient Performance (EP) segment will be much more progressive, which is only logical because they will require new motherboards. Therefore, the Harpertown, a 45nm quad core, seems to have a bright future ahead of it.



     A die shrink to 55nm for the G92?

    Logo NvidiaAccording to VR-Zone, Nvidia is currently working on a die shrink of the G92. This should involve a change from the 65nm to the 55nm fabrication process, a size which the RV670 (that equips Radeon HD 3800s) already comes in.

    Our colleagues give different reasons for this change. Besides the fact of offering a higher performance chip more adapted to the mobile segment, it should also enable increasing the chip’s frequencies and improve yields, therefore lowering production costs. Unfortunately, no information was given about the cards that will actually benefit from this new GPU.



     Intel SSD: 160 GB and a min. of 100 MB/s

    Troy Winslow, Marketing Manager of the NAND Products Group at Intel, revealed some interesting inside information to our colleagues at CNET.


    While the company already mentioned its intention of commercializing SATA-II SSDs (3.0 Gbits/s) starting this year in addition to USB and PATA models destined for UMPCs, up until now it wasn’t too clear on the future flagship product of its line.

    In fact, this product should be in 1.8" and 2" ½ format with capacities ranging from 80 to 160 GB. In terms of performances, they ought to be much better than the 100 MB/s attained by some Samsung SSDs in reading. Intel’s manager does not hide his enthusiasm and furthermore stresses the optimal functioning of the controller and firmware integrated by the Californian manufacturer in its next SSDs which should use multi-level (MLC) Flash NAND.



     Atom N230: 1.6 GHz, HT and 4W for $29

    In addition to the Atom N270, Intel should launch at least one other CPU derived from Silverthorne architecture in the second quarter.


    With a price placing it just under the $30 mark and a relatively high TDP for an Atom processor, it will have HyperThreading and will be destined for "Nettops". This is a particularly inexpensive PC segment enabling basic Internet use and running applications that only need a minimum of performance.
