    Intel officially released a new Xeon that isn't based on the NetBurst architecture but on the Core Duo that exists in laptops: the Dual Core Intel Xeon LV 2.0 GHz processor, previously known as Sossaman. Like its mobile counterpart, it also includes 2 cores sharing 2 MB of cache L2 and 667 MHz FSB. TDP announced is of 31 Watts.

    This new Xeon can however be used in a bi processor configuration (4 cores in total) with the same FSB and is capable to address memory using 36 bit or up to 64 GB. The Core Duo is limited to 32 bits or 4 GB. In practice, the compatible chipset, the E7520 only supports 16 GB of dual channel DDR2-400 memory. The E7520 also supports 3 PCI Express x8 interfaces. Each of them can also be used as 2x4.

    It is interesting to point out that we don't know if the next Woodcrest processor, Xeon declination of the Core architecture will use the same Socket as this Xeon.

    Verbatim announced the release today of a new storage concept, a product that is a new category of media based on flash technology. Appealing isn't it?

    Its name: Verbatim FlashDisc. Size? 16 MB. Price? 19.99€ for a spindle including three products. A spindle? Yes indeed, because this concept is in fact an USB key in the shape of a disc. The key diameter is 6cm and it is 0.9 cm high.

    Writing press releases is an art form in itself…

    Logo sphère ATIATI will launch this summer new chips for mid-range cards, the RV560 and RV570. Thanks to these 80 nm chips, ATI will finally have a real mid-range chip to compete with NVIDIA's 7600 GT. We think that they will include a higher number of ROP and texturing units. We also have heard rumours of 256 bits memory bus. Some of ATI's roadmaps mention too the CrossFire support integrated to the chip additionally to Gemini which could be a dedicated chip required for the development of dual GPU cards.
