Intel Elkhart Lake Processors To Succeed Gemini Lake Processors in 2020

Intel Elkhart Lake Tablet

Intel Gemini Lake processors were highly anticipated as soon as they were first reported in September 2016, and even more so before launch since Gemini Lake products promised to be about as expensive as their older Apollo Lake counterparts. Interest somewhat fizzled despite a clear performance advantage over the previous generation, as prices did not match initial expectations, likely due to a shortage of Intel cheaper processors. In recent weeks, we started to read about Intel Elkhart Lake processors that are meant to be the successors of Gemini Lake processors, based on Tremont microarchitecture, and featuring Intel “i915” Gen11 graphics. The new processor should be manufactured using a 10nm process, but it’s still unclear whether some Elkhart Lake processors will be part of Intel Foveros which combines a fast Sunny Cove core with several Atom class Tremont cores. That’s about all we know from the technical side so far. A […]

MiTAC Announces 7-Star 64-Bit ARM Server Powered by Applied Micro X-Gene Server-on-Chip

After unveiling their GFX servers based on Marvell ARM Cortex A9 SoC at Computex 2012, Mitac announced their new 7-Star server at Computex 2013. This new server is based on Applied Micro X-Gene SoC featuring ARMv8 architecture, and is one of the first, if not the first, 64-Bit ARM server ever. The key features of Mitac Server are as follows: 18x Front-loaded Computing Blades in 4U (176mm x 440mm x 650mm) Server Blade Spec SSI uModule v1.0 complaint (1) ARMv8 compliant 64-bit SoC /blade (2) DDR3 DIMM slots, and (2) 2.5” SATA 3.0 HDD support (1) 10G SFP+ and (1) GbE port IPMI V2.0 compliant Pass-through Ethernet Module Chassis Management Hot-swap FAN and (2+1) RPSU support It will be available by the end of the year. That’s about all I know for now, but more information should eventually come up on Mitac 7-Star page. Via PC Perspective. Jean-Luc Aufranc (CNXSoft)Jean-Luc […]

Mitac Unveils ARM Based GFX Server at Computex 2012

MiTAC International announced their first ARM server (MiTAC GFX) based on Marvell ARMADA XP SoC and running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS at Computex 2012, in Taipei. This solution appears to be similar to Dell “Copper” ARM server announced last week, which also uses Marvel ARMADA XP and runs Ubuntu 12.04, except its intended to be a real product rather than just a prototype. The MiTAC GFX with ASX-1 module is intended for deployment as a general purpose server where real estate, efficiency and throughput at a realistic price are key factors and typical applications include web hosting, web browsing, email, chat, social media and networking, etc. Later,  MiTAC will introduce an ASX-HP (High Performance) module for compute intensive workloads that can be add to GFX system, and ASX modules featuring 64-bit SoC are under development. MiTAC showcased a GFX System with 64 nodes (that’s 256 Cortex A9 cores) at Computex 2012, […]
