[Tech ARP] [ Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - CPU to PCI Post Write
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 9:37A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *CPU to PCI Post Write* setting."

AMD Llano APU System Build: Mini-ITX for HTPC and Gaming
     Tue, Jul 24 2012 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Putting it all together is pretty simple and if you have any experience building PCs you shouldnt have any problem getting our mini-ITX rig assembled. The only issue is that sometimes installing hardware in a small form factor case can cause some spacing issues (and possible some cuts on the hands), the Lian-Li case is built well enough (and spacious enough) to avoid that for the most part."

Game-Changer: TSMC May Build Dedicated Apple Fab
     Mon, Jul 23 2012 | 3:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Trusted sources we've spoken to in the semiconductor industry have implied that TSMC is considering a partnership with Apple that would realign the manufacturer's technology roadmap and fundamentally alter the balance of power between the foundry and its other customers. Morris Chang, TSMC's CEO, spoke about the possibility of closer collaboration with its customers in general terms last Friday, but at the time we thought the likelihood of an Apple alliance was unlikely. We've since been given reason to think otherwise. A dedicated alliance with Apple that gives the company first access to 20nm production and/or a dedicated fab could fundamentally redefine the foundry-customer relationship and have serious impact on both TSMC's other customers and its competitors...

AMD delays launch of desktop Trinity to October 2012
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 3:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
According to an unconfirmed report on Digitimes, AMD's next desktop CPU, code named 'Trinity' has been pushed back from August till October 2012.

"Many Socket FM2-based processors including A10-5800k will be delayed.

Meanwhile, AMD originally planned to fully replace AM3-based processors with its FM1-based processors, but has recently adjusted its roadmap and changed the phase-out schedule of AM3-based processors from mid-2012 to the second quarter of 2013, while the processor series will account for 30% of AMD's total desktop processor shipments, the sources noted.

The sources also pointed out that after October, many AMD-based CPUs with different sockets will be available in the market including AM3, AM3+ (Vishera), FM1 (Llano), FM2 (Trinity) and FT1 (Brazos 2.0). Of which, FM2-based processors will account for 22% of AMD's total desktop processor shipments in the fourth quarter, while FM1-based products' proportion will drop from 30% in the third quarter to only 16%. AM3 and AM3+ processors will still be the major CPU segments for AMD in the fourth quarter.

In October, AMD also plans to launch three new AM3+ Vishera-based processors (Volan) including FX-8350 (125W/95W) and FX6300, with FX-4320 to be launched at a later time."
