Intel: building a 10GHz processor

At the current International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) Intel announced several new technological solutions — "chip building blocks" — that are expected to help company create 10GHz+ processors by the end of this decade.

In documents presented at ISSCC Intel briefly describes components to be used in new low-power high-performance processors. These include 3.5GHz multiphase clock oscillator requiring 32mW in active mode and up to 300 µW in standby; 5GHz floating point media-access controller (MAC) with up to 5 GFLOP/s performance.

Besides, the company announced the "sleep transistors" technology for energy-saving apps. According to Intel this will allow to considerably reduce leakage current to save 10-20% more energy.

The company also plans to inform about such specialized modules, as TCP/IP rollout module, 8Gbps PCI Express synchronous duplex I/O bus, etc.

We’ve got servers/workstation Intel SE7505VB2 motherboard on Intel E7505 chipset for testing in our lab.

The board supports Intel Xeon with Intel NetBurst architecture, 533MHz FSB and Hyper-Threading. Intel SE7505VB2 supports up to 8Gb DDR266 SDRAM w/ECC operating in dual-interleaved mode for better performance; features 5 PCI (PCI-X) slots, AGP slot (AGP 8X Pro50), dual-channel integrated Intel PRO adapter, Serial ATA interface, Ultra320 SCSI RAID 0/1; the board also supports Intel Server Management 5.5 software as well as Intel PRO/1000 Gigabit network controllers. Intel SE7505VB2 can also be designed in Intel SC5250-E server case.

Mushkin announces 256Mb PC3500 DDR modules

Mushkin Enhanced Memory Systems, a division of Ramtron, announced new "overclocker’s" Unbuffered PC3500 DDR SDRAM modules.

Featuring 2.5-4-4 timings and 32x8 organization, novelties are based on 6-layer PCB with optimized circuitry design and have copper heat-sinks. 5ns module chips operate at 433MHz (DDR). MSRP of 256Mb Mushkin PC3500 DDR modules — $129.

LG releases a new 18.1" LCD monitor for 699 euro

LG Electronics released new 18.1" Flatron LCD L1811S LCD monitor.

The model features 1280x1024 IPS (In Plane Switching) matrix with 250cd/m² brightness, 350:1 contrast, 30ms response time, 160° vertical and horizontal viewing angle. Line scan makes 30kHz to 83kHz, frame scan – 56Hz to 75Hz.

Provided with 3-year warranty, LG L1811S will cost about 699 euro (in France).
