Intel Demos 2GHz Quad-Core Server Chips

Intel showcased at its developer forum in Taipei, Taiwan its forthcoming Quad-Core processor for servers. Public demonstration of the server chip that is expected to be launched in less than a year should emphasize readiness of the design.

The prototype of the code-named Clovertown server processor utilizes two physical dice on a substrate, each of the units sport two processing engines and 4MB of unified cache, thus providing four executing cores and 8MB of cache in total. Intel has already demonstrated the new product in an attempt to show off its technological excellence. However, the company did not reveal any peculiarities of the Clovertown’s design earlier.

NEC LCD Technologies Further Enhances "ST-NLT" Lineup

NEC LCD Technologies today announced that it will begin successive shipment of three new amorphous silicon TFT LCD samples by the end of June 2006. The new products comprise of an 8.4-inch (21cm-diagonal) SVGA TFT LCD module, part number NL8060BC21-03, an 8.4-inch (21cm-diagonal) VGA TFT LCD module, part number NL6448BC26-09C and a 6.5-inch (17cm-diagonal) VGA TFT LCD module, part number NL6448BC20-20.

All three new LCD modules feature NEC LCD Technologies' proprietary super-transmissive natural light TFT (ST-NLT) technology that achieves display of vivid colors in environments with high ambient light, enabled by 50% added brightness as compared with conventional models. In addition, the new LCDs boast a wide operating-temperature range of -10 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius (* NL6448BC26-09C support -20 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius).

These new and enhanced features make all three new models ideal for installation in automatic vending machines, point-of-sales systems for gas stations and measuring instruments for boats and ships such as fish finders, chart plotters, radars and GPS navigators.

All three new models will be displayed at Display 2006, which is being held in Tokyo Big Sight, Japan, from April 19 - 21.
