AVADirect Introduces Desktops Featuring Intel's Unlocked Haswell Processors

The moment AVADirect began to walk down the road of partnership with Intel, they immediately recognized how special said path would be. As unique as it was (and still is) AVADirect felt it a necessary step in the right, collaborative direction. As Intel is creating an enthusiast following through ground-breaking processor technology, and AVADirect following suit with their one-of-a-kind custom configurations, enthusiasts begin to see a wonderment of high-end solutions unfold. That being said, the reveal of Intel's new, refreshed, unlocked 4th Generation Intel desktop processors makes the perfect addition to AVADirect' armament of Gaming, Performance, and mini-Desktop configurations.

These new Unlocked Intel processors means unlimited potential, and decreased limitations toward advantageous performance that, what was once industry standard, will burn a hole in your competition through smooth-playing gunfire, rather than your system's thermals. The (code-named "Devil's Canyon") 4th Generation CPU's have gained positive press based on reduced thermal operation while under extreme overclocking modifications. What this means, exactly, is end-users/enthusiasts may no longer need to seek high-end cooling solutions (closed-loop/custom liquid cooling) to acquire desirable temperatures while under full load, overclocked, and pushed to the max. This could very well be a new industry standard, coming of age, and (once again) with Intel's leading products for those who wish to utilize the latest processor technologies to their greatest benefit.

Cadence and Intel Collaborate to Enable a 14 nm Tri-gate Design Platform

Sapphire Also Shows off Atomic Z97 Motherboard

In addition to the Atomic 990FX, which features a full-coverage water block, Sapphire also showed off its cousin from the Intel platform, the Atomic Z97 (SIZ97). The motherboard in the picture below may look barren without its heatsinks, but that's because it has none, its water-block is standing right next to it, and needs to be installed after you drop in a CPU. Among its features are a 6-phase high-current CPU VRM, two PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots, five SATA 6 Gb/s, one mSATA 6 Gb/s, and mainstream connectivity.

Intel Announces Core i7 and Core i5 "Devil's Canyon" Quad-core Processors

Intel announced its much awaited Core i7 and Core i5 "Devil's Canyon" unlocked quad-core processors. Based on an enhanced "Haswell-DT" Refresh silicon, the chips feature binned dies, enhanced thermal interface material between the die and the integrated heatspreader, enhanced on-package electricals, and high voltage limits. Among the models launched today, are the Core i7-4790K, and the Core i7-4690K. The i7-4790K features four cores, with HyperThreading enabling eight logical CPUs, 8 MB L3 cache, Intel HD 4600 graphics, and an integrated dual-channel DDR3 IMC. It comes with clock speeds of 4.00 GHz, with 4.40 GHz Turbo Boost. Apart from unlocked multipliers, it features higher voltage limits than the current i7-4770K. The Core i5-4690K, on the other hand, is a quad-core chip that lacks HyperThreading. It offers clock speeds of 3.50 GHz, and Turbo Boost speeds of 3.90 GHz. The i7-4790K is priced at US $350, and the i5-4690K at $250. Both chips should be available by 25th June, 2014. For now, you can pre-order them on Newegg.

Intel President: Integrated, Smart Connected Devices Fuel Next Era of Computing

As computing continues to evolve and expand beyond the traditional PC, Intel Corporation President Renée James said Intel and the Taiwan technology ecosystem have the exciting opportunity to build on the long history of collaborative innovation to deliver seamless and truly personal computing experiences.

Processor technology continues to get smaller with greater performance and lower power thanks to Moore's Law, expanding the scale and potential for Intel technology and that of the Taiwan ecosystem, from infrastructure for cloud computing and the Internet of Things to personal and mobile computing and wearable technology.

NAND Flash Brand Supplier Revenue Falls 6.6% in First Quarter

The shipment performances of Smartphones, Tablets, and Notebooks were relatively weak in the first quarter due to seasonality. As a result of the entire NAND Flash market's oversupply in 1Q 2014, the branded suppliers' Q1 revenues saw a 6.6% drop compared to the previous quarter, and slid to approximately US$ 7,244 million, according to Sean Yang, Assistant Vice President at DRAMeXchange, the memory and storage research division of TrendForce.

Looking at the branded supplier revenue ranking, Samsung managed to retain its lead in the market with approximately US$ 2,175 million in sales, but saw its market share dip slightly to 30.0%; Toshiba came in second with a revenue total of US$ 1,548 million and an improved market share of 21.4%; SanDisk ended up in third place with US$ 1,367 million in revenue, while Micron came in fourth with US$ 1,050 million; Affected by its capacity allocations, SK Hynix's revenues slid to approximately US$ 594 million, resulting in market share of 8.2%.

Intel Puts Automotive Innovation Into High Gear

To accelerate innovation toward a future of autonomous vehicles, Intel Corporation announced today the availability of a family of hardware and software products called Intel In-Vehicle Solutions, as well as additional investments and advanced technology research aimed at helping the car evolve to better inform, assist and eventually assume control.
