HP Also Working on a Chromebox

ASUS' recently-announced Chromebox will soon be getting some competition as HP is also preparing a compact desktop machine running Google's Chrome OS. HP's very own Chromebox targets both the consumer and business segments and is set to arrive, at least in the US, this spring.

HP hasn't shared too much information about the Chromebox but it did say the device will include DisplayPort and HDMI outputs (for dual display support) and will be powered by (up to) an Intel Core i7 (Haswell) processor. Multiple color versions are also in plan. No word on pricing yet.

Acer Readies Aspire S7 Ultrabook with WQHD Display

Acer is working on a variant of its 13.3-inch Aspire S7 Ultrabook with a higher resolution display. It will offer WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution, which works out to a pixel density of 221 ppi, which is not too far away from the 227 ppi that Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display offers. Depending on its other innards, the WQHD Aspire S7 will come in two variants - a base model priced at US $1,499, driven by Intel Core i5-4200U, and a top model priced at $1,799, with a faster Core i7-4500U chip. Both feature 8 GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory, and 256 GB of SSD storage, each. The two will begin to show up on leading US retailers in the coming week.

Intel To Retire Some Bay Trail and Ivy Bridge Processors

Intel Corp. has kicked off February by informing partners (and anyone interested) about the discontinuance schedule of nine products including two Ivy Bridge mobile processors - the Core i7-3840QM (2.8 GHz) and i7-3740QM (2.7 GHz), and seven Bay Trail-based SoCs - the Pentium N3510 (2.0 GHz) and J2850 (2.41 GHz) and the Celeron N2910 (1.6 GHz), N2810 (2.0 GHz), N2805 (1.46 GHz), J1850 (2.0 GHz) and J1750 (2.41 GHz).

The Pentium N3510, J2850 and Celeron N2910 are the first to go as they will only be available for orders until February 21st and will continue shipping until April 25th. The rest are set to survive quite a bit longer, their last order date being August 22nd, while shipments won't end until February 6th, 2015.

Team Project X Series Memory Creates Super Pi 32M World Record

TeamGroup announced the new world record of Super Pi 32M (Air Cooling) on Jan. 22, 2014. Working together with HKEPC OC Lab in Hong Kong, TeamGroup overclocking memory module has achieved new record" 4min 38sec 329ms ", not only placed among the Top 5 world record of Super Pi 32M, but also the only non-extreme cooling record in Top 10 Global Ranking.

Super Pi 32M is the most popular test program for pro overclockers to compare the performance and stability of their computers. It's also one of the main items in HWBOT Global Ranking. By using Gauss-Legendre algorithm, it can accurately calculate π to 232 square roots--the 32M digits after decimal point and need extremely high stability of system memory. Beside the performance of processor, memory module clock and low latency timing are also the keys of computing speed. Shorten the computing time is the target for overclockers around the world to compete.

Intel Launches Ten New Mobile Processors

Intel's processor portfolio has just been expanded to include no less than ten new mobile offerings including five Core i7 models, four Core i5s and one Celeron chip. At the head of this new wave is the Core i7-4940MX which features 4 cores clocked at 3.1 GHz and bears a price tag of $1,096. This model takes the top spot in Intel's mobile line-up, pushing aside the 3.0 GHz i7-4930X.

This latest release wave also includes three ultra-low voltage CPUs, the Core i5-4360U, i5-4310U and the Celeron 2980U, the ladder being the cheapest of the lot, costing $107. The rest of the processors are found in the table below.

Intel Core "Haswell" Refresh Lineup Slated for Q2

Intel is expected to launch its refreshed Core "Haswell" processor lineup in the second quarter of 2014 (between April and June), beating its Computex 2014 anticipated launch window. Motherboard vendors will launch their products based on Intel's new Z97 Express and H97 Express chipsets by the end of April. The products will have reached retail channels worldwide by May.

Intel will release as many as 20 new SKUs spanning its Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, and Pentium brands, including the Core i7-4790, Core i5-4690, Core i5-4590, Core i3-4360, Pentium G3450, and Celeron G1840. Among the low-power SKUs are the Core i7-4790S, Core i5-4590S, and Core i3-4150T. The overclockers among you may want to hold out until Computex (June), because it's only then that Intel is expected to launch the Core i7-4790K and Core i5-4690K, which come with unlocked base-clock multipliers. These chips should be compatible with current socket LGA1150 motherboards, with a BIOS update. Intel's Core i7 "Haswell-E" HEDT platform could also launch around that time. Q2~Q3 promises to be a hectic time of the year for motherboard makers once again.Source: DigiTimes

Gigabyte BRIX Pro Detailed

Picture this - an NUC-like desktop so powerful for its size, that it qualifies to be a Steam Machine by Valve. The new BRIX Pro from Gigabyte is its most powerful BRIX desktop. Measuring all of 114.4mm x 111.4mm x 62 mm, the BRIX Pro tucks in some powerful hardware. To begin with, it features an off-spec 100 x 105 mm motherboard, which seats an Intel Core i7-4770R quad-core processor. Based on the big 22 nm Haswell silicon, it features Intel's Iris Pro 5200 graphics, which runs 40 compute units, and an L4 cache.

The Core i7-4770R chip inside the BRIX Pro is wired to up to 16 GB of dual-channel DDR3-1600 memory. The only internal storage option is an mSATA 6 Gb/s slot. Network connectivity includes gigabit Ethernet, and Wi-Fi + Bluetooth using an optional mPCIe card. The rest of its connectivity includes a total of four USB 3.0 ports, mini-DisplayPort and HDMI display outputs, and 6-channel HD audio. Gigabyte didn't finalize pricing.

Intel Core i7 "Haswell-E" to Launch in Q3 2014

Intel is planning to launch its 4th generation Core i7 HEDT (high-end desktop) platform, codenamed "Haswell-E," in the third quarter of 2014 (after June), which should space its launch roughly a year from Core i7 "Ivy Bridge-E." With Haswell-E, Intel is expected to increase core counts across the board, launching an "affordable" six-core part around the $400 mark, an eight-core part around the $600 mark, and an Extreme Edition eight-core part around the $1,000 mark. The three will be based on the LGA2011-3 socket, which has the same pin count as today's LGA2011, yet is incompatible with it, because the pin map of Haswell-E will differ from its predecessors'. Driving the platform will be Intel's X99 Express chipset, with support for up to ten SATA 6 Gb/s ports, and a large number of USB 3.0 ports. Some of the first X99 motherboards are expected to be unveiled at Computex 2014.

Core i7 "Haswell-E" Engineering Sample Pictured

Here's the first picture of Intel's next-generation Core i7 HEDT (high-end desktop) processor, codenamed "Haswell-E." Based on Intel's latest "Haswell" micro-architecture, the chip will be Intel's first HEDT processor to ship with eight cores, and the first client CPU to ship with next-generation DDR4 memory interface. In addition to IPC improvements over "Ivy Bridge" that come with "Haswell," the chip integrates a quad-channel DDR4 integrated memory controller, with native memory speeds of DDR4-2133 MHz; a PCI-Express gen 3.0 root complex with a total of 40 PCI-Express lanes, and yet the same DMI 2.0 (4 GB/s) chipset bus.

Built into the LGA2011-3 socket, "Haswell-E" will be incompatible with current LGA2011 motherboards, as the notches of the package will vary from LGA2011 "Ivy Bridge-E." Intel will introduce the new X99 Express chipset, featuring all 6 Gb/s SATA ports, integrated USB 3.0 controllers, and a PCI-Express gen 2.0 root complex for third-party onboard controllers. Interestingly, there's no mention of SATA-Express, which Intel's next-generation 9-series chipset for Core "Broadwell" platforms reportedly ships with; and X99 isn't looking too different from today's Z87 chipset. With engineering samples already out, it wouldn't surprise us if Intel launches "Haswell-E" along the sidelines of any of next year's big-three trade-shows (CES, CeBIT, and Computex).
