Intel's 3GHZ Penryn is almost slower than 2GHZ K10

With 12MB cache and 3GHZ clockspeed, the Penryn is as fast as a 2GHZ K10. See also, SPECOMP (Intelers compared its quad to a AMD dual).

DO NOT BELIEVE THIS PUMPER LIE!

Penryn is a pure fear-desparation move by the Intel! Think about it: AMD is being super-selective in not allowing low quality traitor companies like IBM, Dell, HP, Sun to get the K10. This is because they are evil and help the Intel so are not worthy of K10. AMD makes super-huge profits and only gives K10 to worthy peoples who pray to God-Emperor Hector since AMD is superior!

Patience is a virtue and K10 is too good for consumers! AMD knows this since AMD is the only company that cares about consumers and knows what is best for them. Lying websites like "toms" and "andand" just try to confuse customers when they deny absolute AMD truthiness!!

Intel is 100% TOTAL desparation! They use gimmicky buzzwords like "45nm" and "low K process" to hide their evil super-slow architecture. They show useless demos of this "Nehalem" lie that is being used for GAMES... is this a joke? AMD Barcelona runs the REAL business: Specfp_rate. There is no other use of any business in the entire world other than this amazing program which AMD is the perfection of. Any other use of a computer is an evil lie that never happens in the real world!

AMD is superior because it does not use stupid buzzword technology like "45nm". Instead it relies on IMC hypertransport native quad-core speeds with superior 90nm and 65nm SoI processes!! These are real technoloogies not stupid lies like Intel. 65nm is BIGGER than 45nm and therefore more advanced! Why pay huge monies for ONLY 45nm when you get more with AMD for less money? This is because Intel is an evil monopoly. AMD has 100% marketshare and Intel is BK.

THERE IS NO WORD NAMED GROW THIS IS A LIE TOLD BY NVIDIA FANBOYS WHO ARE TOO STUPID TO KNOW THAT ATI CARDS ARE SUPERIOR BECAUSE THEY ONLY SHOW YOU THE FRAMES HECTOR KNOWS YOU ARE ALLOWED TO WITNESS. THERE IS ONLY THE WORD GORW THAT HECTOR HAS SAID IS TRUTHY!!!

Sharikou,

What happened? AMD K10 Barcelona/Phenoms were fragged by Core 2s/K8s and have now gotten their clocks cleaned by Penryn designs.

And in further desperation you screwed your spelling of this new emergency post titled "Intel's 3GHZ Penryn ia (sic) almost slower than 2GHz K10"

What a maroon!

Could you be more desperate?

ROFLMAO

Transmeta Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results

Transmeta Corporation (NASDAQ:TMTA) today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2007, ended September 30, 2007.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2007 was $44,000, which included $43,000 of services revenue and $1,000 of license revenue for royalty payments. This compared with revenue of $171,000 in the second quarter of 2007, which included $146,000 of services revenue and $25,000 of end-of-life product revenue.

All share and per share data included in this press release have been retroactively adjusted to account for the effect of the one-for-20 reverse stock split that the Company effected on August 17, 2007. Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2007 was $12.7 million, or a loss of $1.24 per share, compared with a net loss of $11.5 million, or a loss of $1.15 per share, in the second quarter of 2007. The third quarter of 2007 results included restructuring charges totaling $109,000, non-cash charges of $1.7 million for amortization of intangible assets and non-cash charges of $3.6 million for the beneficial conversion feature of the Series B Preferred Stock sold to AMD in July 2007.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2007 was 59 percent, compared with a gross margin of 53 percent in the second quarter of 2007.

The Company’s cash, cash equivalents and short term investments at September 30, 2007 totaled $28.6 million, including the approximate $7.0 million in net proceeds that Transmeta received from AMD’s investment in the Company in July 2007, and the approximate $11.6 million in net proceeds that the Company received from its securities offering in September 2007. The Company continues to be debt free.

In October, Transmeta entered into an agreement with Intel Corporation providing for a settlement of all claims between the two companies and for the licensing of the Transmeta patent portfolio to Intel for use in current and future Intel products. The agreement will grant Intel a perpetual non-exclusive license to all Transmeta patents and patent applications, including any patent rights later acquired by Transmeta, now existing or as may be filed during the next ten years. Under the agreement, Transmeta will grant to Intel a non-exclusive paid-up license and transfer technology related to its LongRun and LongRun2 technologies and future improvements. Under the agreement, Intel will covenant not to sue Transmeta for the development and licensing to third parties of Transmeta’s LongRun and LongRun2 technologies. The agreement provides for Intel to make an initial $150 million payment to Transmeta as well as to pay Transmeta an annual license fee of $20 million for each of the next five years.

“During the third quarter, we reinforced our relationship with AMD through the strategic investment that AMD made in Transmeta in July 2007. In addition, we raised about $11.6 million in net proceeds from our securities offering in September 2007 and completed the restructuring program that we started earlier this year,” said Les Crudele, president and CEO. “In October, we resolved our patent litigation with Intel, pursuant to an agreement that provides for Transmeta to receive an initial payment of $150 million and future payments of $20 million per year for each of the next five years. We believe these funds will give us the financial flexibility to execute on our strategy of developing and licensing our intellectual property. Having completed our restructuring, resolved our patent litigation, and taken steps to significantly strengthen our balance sheet, we can now concentrate our attention on developing our technology, building our licensing business, putting the building blocks in place to expand our customer base and creating long-term shareholder value.”

Intel, Extending Lead, Turns to New Production Method (Update1)

By Ellen Braitman and Ian King

Nov. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Intel Corp., seeking to extend its lead over Advanced Micro Devices Inc., will use a manufacturing process that debuted today for cheaper, faster computer chips.

``We feel that we're in a very strong position in all of the segments from notebooks through servers,'' Sean Maloney, Intel's head of sales, said in an interview today.

Intel, the biggest semiconductor maker, began selling new processors built with the industry's most advanced manufacturing methods today. Analysts including Martin Reynolds of Gartner Inc. estimate that the Santa Clara, California-based company is about two years ahead of Advanced Micro in production technology.

Intel overhauled factories with new equipment to create chips with skinnier wires. The changes also lower production costs
, which may help Intel if its smaller rival tries to undercut the company on prices, Maloney said.

``It enables us to save costs,'' he said. ``We can make more of these chips at a lower cost, so if the marketplace gets more competitive, we have another strength there.''

Profit at Intel dropped 42 percent in 2006 when the chipmaker was forced to reduce prices to try to hang on to orders lost to new products from Advanced Micro. Last year Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini introduced Intel's first chip redesign in more than six years and pledged to increase the pace at which his company brings new technology to the market.

Intel rose 26 cents, or 1 percent, to $25.41 at 11:18 a.m. in Nasdaq Stock Market trading. The shares had gained 24 percent this year before today. Sunnyvale, California-based Advanced Micro, which had declined 39 percent this year, rose 1 cent to $12.38 on the New York Stock Exchange.

Intel will spend $10.6 billion on research and factory equipment this year to build faster processors, more than three times Advanced Micro's budget.

All the analysts agree that Intel is two years ahead of Intel. By the time AMD figures out 45nm with acceptable yields Intel will have moved on to 32nm.

BUY Intel hi performance, energy saving, low cost, state of the art, cpus, platforms, and video solutions.

INTEL CPUS 100% LEAD FREE!

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/582/1/

ix Years In The Making - Lead Free Processors

With next weeks launch of Intel's 45nm family of microprocessors they will have official removed 100 percent of the lead (Pb) across its entire 45nm series of microprocessors. This is a huge milestone and it has taken Intel six years to strip the lead from the manufacturing process on their microprocessors! With the world so focused on 'going green' the move to a lead-free product could not have come at a better time.

Intel 45nm Penryn Processors Go Lead Free

Current 90nm and 65nm Intel desktop processors are 95% lead free and have been so for a few years now, but have had lead in the C4 bumps. Now that Intel has moved to 45nm Hi-k metal gate process technology they can transition to new lead-free materials on the bumps. This means that lead-tin solder is a thing of the past as tin-silver-copper solder can now do the job.

Intel 45nm Penryn Processors Go Lead Free

If you're not familiar with what a 'bump' is and where the change is taking place, it's under the integrated heat spreader (IHS) between the die and the substrate. Each and every flip-chip bump is now lead-free.

Intel 45nm Penryn Processors Go Lead Free

Now that the flip-chip bump solder points that used to contain lead have been replaced with a copper column and lead-free solder the processors are more environmentally friendly, but this does come at a cost. The melting point of lead-tin is 183C, whereas the melting point of lead-free solders is greater than 220C. This means increased stress on the flip-chip package and more power consumption since the convection ovens need their baking temperatures increased. To manage the increased stress and survive the higher process temperatures, Intel reengineered many parts of the processor. At the same time, the new solder alloy dramatically increases the current carrying capability of the electrical connection. Copper is a better conductor than the previously used lead/tin solder and it can connect to massive metal layers inside the die, so it's actually better in this aspect. In the end using a little more energy to remove lead and having a better electrical connection, seems like the better choice for the environment.

The next time you buy or upgrade a computer system choosing a lead-free part is more than likely not a key feature that influences buying decisions, but if it is, you are now a better informed consumer. It should be pointed out that although 45nm processors are now 100% lead-free, Intel chipsets are not. Upcoming 65nm Intel Express chipsets will transition to being 100% lead-free in 2008, so we will still have to wait a bit for a 100% lead-free motherboard. Kudos to Intel for being the first to have a lead-free processor, but don't stop! Keep going green across the board!

Legit Bottom Line: The new lead-free bumps is a step in the right direction; they can carry more current and enable higher performance microprocessors, is more reliable, and is better for the environment since it is 100 percent lead-free.

WE SHOULD ALL HELP INTEL SAVE OUR PLANET BY BUYING THESE EARTH-FRIENDLY LEAD-FREE CPUS. Don't buy AMD CPUs that are full of lead and other dangerous materials that are bad for the environment.


BUY Intel hi performance, energy saving, low cost, state of the art, cpus, platforms, and video solutions.

Intel HPC benchmarks admit to superiority of AMD architecture (don't waste our time with SuperPI toy benchmarks). As you can see, the real picture is painted clearly that Intel was forced to expedite the move to 45nm process to add yet more cache (from 2x4MB->2x6MB) to their Quad 3.0GHz while also keeping thermals from going over the top just to stay competitive with AMD 65nm Quad 2.0GHz 2MB.

Eight HPC Benchmarks
http://www.intel.com/performance/server/xeon/hpcapp3.htm

LS-Dyna
Intel Quad 3.0GHz, 2x6MB cache, 1600MHz ~6% faster in one benchmark and neck-for-neck in second bencharmk against AMD Quad 2.0GHz 2MB

SPECOMP2001
Intel Quad 3.0GHz, 2x6MB cache, 1600MHz ~10% faster than AMD Quad 2.0GHz 2MB

AMD Quad conveniently left out from the remaining eight HPC benchmarks (was it too embarassing for Intel?):

Linkpack
Black-Scholes
FLUENT
Abaqus
Paradign Geodepth
Monte Carlo
PowerFLOW
PAM-CRASH

Intel first conned consumers into believing higher clock over true performance per clock and is now spinning the process shrink. What they don't mention is AMD architecture is king as demonstrated by AMD 65nm Quad 2.0GHz 2MB making Intel's latest and greatest 45nm Quad 3.0GHz 2x6MB sweat. Intel's move to 45nm process shrink with larger 2x6MB cache and a 33% clock speed advantage only netted 6-10% at best in HPC performance.

I see you deleted the entry where the shiny one, used profanity toward me and where I responded that it would not be nice if his boss at accenture found out he was posting here because he is in violation of accenture's code of business ethics

Specifically, the shiny silver phallus is in violation of the following:

We use electronic communications technology responsibly and professionally

Everyday we use essential business tools that belong to Accenture, our clients and others: the Internet, e-mail, voice and intranet systems, as well as software, computers, telephones, digital assistants and fax machines.

We use this technology professionally and with good judgment because Accenture provides it for business use. While the company allows limited personal use, unacceptable behavior includes illegal activities, excessive use, or conducting business that is not related to Accenture. Also, our communications—by e-mail, instant messenger or otherwise—should always be appropriate and in good taste.

AS I PREDICTED, AMD, IBM, & VIA ARE THE WINNERS.....

Sub $200 Linux machine is a sell out

Great reviews

By Nick Farrell: Tuesday, 13 November 2007, 8:28 AM

EVEREX'S TC2502 gPC mass-market $200 desktop computer is apparently a sell out at Wal-Mart.

The machine was touted as the first sub-$200 Linux PC on the market.

The low spec computer, which comes without any monitor or frills, has been selling out partly due to its unusual Linux based operating system.

Under the bonnet is a cut down version of Ubuntu, called Enlightenment. This GUI is a lot lighter than Gnome or KDE and is a hell of a lot faster than Vista. It also does not need much of a spec to get a decent effect.

Having a look at the screen shots, Enlightenment looks like a green version of the Apple operating system.

Looking at the glowing reviews the machine has got it has been being flogged to those who do not expect much from a PC. All they appear to need is OpenOffice and the internet.

intel does not even comprehend what a failure they are, they dont even understand this market segment and the fact that they are losing the emerging world market to AMD & VIA, & IBM.

AMDs GEODE and the VIA C7 share a common heritage that copy cat intel cant copy because its not shared technology.

AMD and VIA with the assistance of IBM have intel on the rug and they are about to pull it out from under them.

The $200 dollar PC market and the OLPC market are beyond all intel cpu prices. intel has nothing to compete with the AMD geode and VIAs C7 and does not even have a clue where the world demand has headed.

The low cost world market is worth trillions and only the smart and up to date will survive the challenging demands like AMD, VIA, & IBM.

The fanboys and gamers are but a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of the real world market.

intels market understanding is as obsolete as their glued up antique pentium 3 relics.

BUY AMD hi performance, energy saving, low cost, future proof, cpus, platforms, and video solutions.

"sharikou, are you censoring my posts due to a request by Christian, the shiny silver phallus?"

What did I miss? I haven't checked this since my last post and it seems as something interesting was going on. Anyone cares to comment?

Btw, it is kind of funny to see 1.9GHz K10's taking about as much juice as 3GHz quads from Intel combined with FBDIMM and discrete GPU against DDR2 and IGP.


"
So despite the mentioned drawbacks, the Intel Xeon L5320 machine has proven itself to have better performance, value and power consumption. With all the work that AMD had put in the processor for aggressive power savings, it was sad and unfortunate that we did not really see much of those technologies matching Intel's solution."




"The low cost world market is worth trillions and only the smart and up to date will survive the challenging demands like AMD, VIA, & IBM."

Right. At $200 a pop you can get a PC for every single person on earth. Talk about wasting recourses.

Here is a summary of gains made by Intel EM64T processor architecture in the latest Top500 list over the previous list:

- EM64T gained by 18% to reach 64%.
- All other architectures lost share to EM64T. AMD64 lost 5.6% followed by Power which lost 4.8%
- Total Processing power for EM64T almost doubled. It increased for AMD64 & Power as well but only by around 25% & 20%

Speak of the devil, this just turned up.

http://www.digitimes.com/systems/a20071112PD219.html



Intel is expected to launch its Shelton'08 low-cost desktop platform for systems priced as low as US$100 next year and targeting emerging markets, according to industry sources. Even though it is a desktop platform, its improved heat dissipation and power consumption will have Shelton'08 first being adopted for sub-US$300 notebooks in the third quarter of 2008, and shortly afterward for US$100 desktop systems, the sources said.

According to the sources, the platform will use 45nm Diamondville processors, with either Intel's 945GC or SiS 671 chipsets. It supports Microsoft Vista Basic.

US$100 desktop systems will be much lower-priced than just about all current mid-range and entry-level branded desktop PCs, which range in price from NT$10,000-20,000 (US$309.82-619.64), the sources commented, adding the launch of the Intel platform will spur a wave of demand for low-cost notebooks and desktops.

The sources revealed that Intel has already informed PC makers including Asustek Computer and Shuttle of its Shelton'08 plan, in the hopes that they can also step up the development of low-cost desktops for emerging markets.

Intel's Shelton platform may also show that Asustek's development of the Eee PC desktop version may have much better prospects than many observers would think, the sources said. Some PC makers have argued that demand for Eee PC desktops might not pick up amid a market trend where notebooks are quickly replacing desktops, according to the sources.

Giant you must stop spreading too much FUD!!!

You are a knowledge guy you don’t need to do that!

From the review, that by the way thank you a lot!

8800GT is faster than HD3870 by 2 FPS exact. (1280x1024, no AA)

From 3Dmark06 and Crysis, it looks like nVidia 8800GT is better than HD3870. However, there is one thing we need to tell you

We found ATi HD3870 is actually has better picture process while Crysis benching.

Specially the light refraction from water, HD3870 is very smooth but 8800GT is not.

The price for ATi HD3870 we are not sure yet, but it should be less than 8800GT.

Not only that, CF can do on P35, X38, 965, and 975 those motherboard as long as there are 2 PCI-E slot.

Also, we are very surprise to see that as AA increase to 8X, the HD3870 beats 8800GT on SM3.0
On HD2900XT, AA was its weakest point and make people hesitate to buy it. Good job on ATi

I don't know what nVidia do to 169.04 but we can see the MAX FPS drops from 30 to 20FPS and the max frame is same as ATi 3870.



Also there is a lot of confusion with the author about the nvidia driver.

nVidia Driver 196.04 was used???
169.02 is the nvidia recommended driver.
But he talks of one 169.04.

The bottom line is: you really do own your career. For some people success is their personal advancement. For others, it's working on something you like and after it ships telling war stories and showing your scars (oh, and do I have scars!). You have to decide what it is you're really looking for, and then decide how to move your career there.


So for the guys that post things like "if you haven't been promoted in 3 years, you don't belong here", that's ridiculous. If you like what you are doing, want to make good products, and do decent work, you belong here. Not everyone wants to spend their careers chasing level increases (though more money is always welcome).

That was why I left. I didn't want to be a manager, I just wanted to be good at what I did. I was, but because of the stack and bad managers it was impossible to just be the guy who could be counted on.

I know every area I worked in was well tested. I know that when I got a ShipIt I earned it. I didn't care about being the highest paid person, I LOVED WHAT I DID. MS drowned that out of me and by the time I left I didn't even care if ANYTHING worked as promised.

It's a real shame because now it seems like MS is just a place where rich guys collect more money and employees stab each other in the back for crumbs.

Good Luck to all who remain. Lou you may even remember Christian Howell. I remember you from NTSELF. I left in 2002.

OLPC

Laptop Project Starts "Buy One, Get One" Initiative

11.12.07

by Chloe Albanesius

The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) initiative on Monday kicked off its short-term "give one, get one" project that will send one computer to the purchaser and a second to a child in a developing nation.

The initiative started at 6 a.m. EST Monday and will last for 15 days. Those who donate $399 to the laptop project will receive a laptop of their own and a second will be sent to a child in need. Participants in the United States will also receive one-year free access to T-Mobile's HotSpot Broadband Internet service.

OLPC said it will make "every effort" to deliver the laptops by the holiday season, but cannot make any guarantees. "Early purchasers have the best chance of receiving their XO laptops in time for the holidays," the group said.

OLPC is the brainchild of Nicholas Negroponte, founding director of the MIT Media Laboratory. The initiative, which provides fully loaded laptops to school children for $200, kicked off in 2005 at the World Economic Forum with partners like AMD, Google, Brightstar and Red Hat.

Quanta Computer agreed in December 2005 to produce the machines. Several versions have since rolled off the assembly line, with the final beta version debuting in July 2007. Mass production of laptops started this week in Quanta's new factory in Changshu, China, according to OLPC.

The project has received safety certification from several countries and can now ship legally in the U.S., Canada, Uruguay, Peru and elsewhere. Approval from the European Union is expected in "approximately a week," OLPC said.

Despite its high-profile launch, OLPC has reportedly not garnered tremendous financial support, prompting the "give one, get one" effort. Prior to this program, supporters could not purchase the $200 computers for themselves.

OLPC last week held the first of its learning workshops in Cambridge, England. More than 60 people from 14 countries, including the United States, attended the gathering, according to OLPC. Participants discussed laptop deployment and how to strengthen community support among OLPC members.

The group also released a public service announcement on YouTube starring Masi Oka of NBC's "Heroes." Oka is now OLPC's media spokesman, but has had to cancel talk-show appearances about the effort due to the "ill-timed writers' strike," according to OLPC.

Last week, Electronic Arts Inc. announced that it would donate the original SimCity to each computer shipped via OLPC.

"The game should prove to be an incredibly effective way of making the laptop relevant, engaging, and fun, particularly for first time players," Steve Seabolt, vice president of global brand development for The Sims Label, said in a statement.

The OLPC is a good charity that deserves our support.
The OLPCs efforts will help bring about economic wonder for all those it helps.
The OLPC will in turn help to create world peace.

AMD is one of the supporters of the OLPC....BUY AMD hi performance, energy saving, low cost, future proof cpus, platforms, and video solutions.

AMD 'fab' plans....Chipmaker says it will hold local meeting on possible plant in Malta
Tuesday November 13, 2007 07:41:19 EST

MALTA, Nov 13, 2007 (Albany Times Union - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX News Network) --

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. expects to provide community residents and leaders an update on its plans for a $3.2 billion computer chip "fab" here within the next month or so.

And although AMD has been winning a price war with rival, many -- but not all -- signs point to the need for additional manufacturing by the global computer-chip market.

For instance, the Semiconductor Industry Association in San Jose, Calif., a trade group for chipmakers, reports worldwide sales of computer chips were $22.6 billion during September, a 5.9 percent increase over the same month last year and the second consecutive monthly increase.

Sales were up 5 percent from August, when $21.53 billion in chips were sold.

Industry publication Semiconductor International also wrote on its Web site last week that cutbacks in capital expenditures by foundry manufacturers could also benefit the Luther Forest site.

Foundries are companies that do outsourced manufacturing for companies like AMD, typically in Asia. Semiconductor International News Editor David Lammers reported Nov. 7 that decisions by foundries to pull back on spending may "increase the chances that new fabs" will be built in Luther Forest and elsewhere.

"AMD has said it will make up its mind soon about when to build a fab at Albany," Lammers wrote. "It probably will, given the huge subsidies being offered by the Empire State."

AMD has until July 2009 to make a decision about whether to build and still be eligible for $650 million in cash from the state for the project. Including tax breaks and infrastructure improvements, the state's incentive package is valued at $1.2 billion.

AMD, has set an "asset light" strategy to become profitable again; however, it has not explained that strategy fully.

AMD officials have said consistently that the plans for Luther Forest are on track. They have wanted to issue a timeline for the project -- also known as Fab 4X -- by December.

"I know we still plan to provide an update on the status of the Fab 4X project to folks in the Capital Region by the end of the year, but right now I don't know exactly when that will be or what we will actually be able to discuss," AMD spokesman Travis Bullard said Monday.

Michael Relyea, executive director of Luther Forest Technology Campus Economic Development Corp., the nonprofit group that manages Luther Forest, said the meeting should come by the end of the year, and he said it will include community outreach.

"They're coming here by the end of November or the beginning of December to talk about their plans," Relyea said. "I don't have a definite day yet."

Not all predictions for the semiconductor industry look rosy. In its weekly semiconductor industry report issued Monday, research firm Gartner Inc. of Stamford, Conn., warned that a potential recession in the United States could occur in 2009.

"The rising probability for a U.S. recession raises the downside risk to the industry," Gartner analyst Klaus Rinnen wrote.

A 2009 recession could bankrupt intel and leave AMD with a huge market share increase to service.

BUY AMD hi performance, energy saving, low cost, future proof, cpus, platforms, and video solutions.
