Apple MacBook Air with Intel ThunderBolt technology

Apple is planning to launch new versions of its super light MacBook Air notebooks this summer, with two of features already in its newest MacBook processors : Intel's ThunderBolt port and Intel's second-generation core "Sandy Bridge" processors.

"We've taken everything we’ve learned about miniaturization from the iPhone and iPad and applied it to the MacBook,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs told the assembled audience at its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.

Apple is ramping up for a manufacturing run of 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch MacBook Airs that sport Intel's "Sandy Bridge" processors, as well as Thunderbolt, the I/O technology that's now available on the MacBook Pro and the iMac. The new Air models are said to be shipping in June or July, according to the report.

Thunderbolt is the I/O technology resulting from a collaboration between Intel and Apple. It boasts considerable speed advantages over USB 3.0, which is available on a number of PCs but not on Mac computers. Thunderbolt remains a nascent technology in terms of adoption across the computing industry, with only Apple's computers currently sporting a Thunderbolt port. Other manufacturers are slated to gain access to Thunderbolt next year.

As for Sandy Bridge, the extra processing boost could make a big impact on the Air's computing prowess. Apple's two Air models currently top out with a Core 2 Duo chip, which is Intel's previous generation chipset. Sandy Bridge represents the second iteration of Intel's "i" line of processors and brings with it both a boost in processing power and graphics capabilities.

The Sandy Bridge running MacBook Pros are said to be twice as fast as their predecessors, while Intel's ThunderBolt technology, created in collaboration with Apple, runs at 10G bps and is reportedly 12 times faster than using a FireWire 800 connection. The input/output technology brings together PCI Express, for high-speed data transfer, and DisplayPort, for high-definition display support, on a single cable. According to Intel a user can, for example, transfer a full-length HD movie in less than 30 seconds.

"We've taken the vision of simple, fast transfer of content between PCs and devices, and made it a reality," Mooly Eden, general manager of Intel's PC Client Group, said in a February statement on the introduction of ThunderBolt.

IBM’s Sequoia the next World's Fastest super computer

International Business Machines (IBM) is an American multinational technology and consulting firm headquartered in Armonk, New York. IBM manufactures and sells computer hardware and software, and it offers infrastructure, hosting and consulting services in areas ranging from mainframe computers to nanotechnology.

World’s fastest super computer will be undoubtedly IBM’s Sequoia . It is being built at the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California by IBM.
This machine will nearly 20 times faster than the previous fastest record holder (BlueGene).

This new machine can achieve a speed of 20 Peta flops (Floating Point operations per second) or 20 quadrillion computations per second. The Sequoia wil have 1.6 million processor chips under the hood.

This super computer will play a critical role in nuclear weapons simulations, biological problem solving and genetic research.

The currently working fastest supercomputer is the BlueGene.
The supercomputer consists of 64 racks of Blue Gene servers, each of which contains 1,024 700MHz dual-core PowerPC processors.

Its specs are :

Specifications of BlueGene/L are listed on LLNL’s website are as follows:

1. 65,536 compute nodes, each targeted for 2.8 GFlop/s peak
2. Chip multiprocessor with 4MB L3 cache on chip
3. High-bandwidth low-latency 3D torus and combining tree networks
4. 32 terabytes of memory
5. High-performance kernel on compute nodes, Linux on I/O nodes
6. Hardware support for Message Passing Interface collectives
7. BlueGene/L currently tops the TOP500 Supercomputer Sites list with a Linpack performance
8. benchmark of 280.6 TFlop/s.

Intel Core i7 2920XM Fastest Mobile Processor in Q4 2011

The needs of notebook consumers include great performance, long battery life, compelling form factors, seamless connectivity and security/manageability. Intel has platform technologies to optimize designs for each of these vectors and to help make trade-offs for a winning combination of features.

Intel has plans to release a new Core i7 2920XM & Mobile Processor based on its new Sandy Bridge lineup, The Core i7 2920XM which will remain Intel’s fastest Mobile Processor in Q4 2011. The notebook chip will feature a clock speed of 2.5Ghz which can turbo upto 3.5Ghz while the 650Mhz IGP Core also allows for turbo boost upto 1300mhz. The chip is a Quad core with eight threads along with 8Mb of L3 Cache.

The Processor will make its way to the 17' Gaming notebooks which can benefit alot from the 4 cores and 8 threads of the mobile beast. However, TDP of 55w is a pretty bad things as far as the temps and battery times are concerned. The chip is set to be released within upcoming months however a certain replacement with the upcoming Ivy Bridge platform is highly likely.

Intel Oak Trail Tablet Computer Processors

Intel has formally launched its Oak Trail processor, designed for use in tablet computers.

The new microchip is smaller and uses less power than other models in its Atom range.

Despite being the world's largest manufacturer of microprocessors, Intel has been largely pushed out of the growing tablet market.

Until now, most devices have used chips designed by Apple and Cambridge-based Arm Holdings.

the Oak Trail microprocessor technology designed and developed for use in tablet computers.

Intel, regardless of being the world’s largest maker of microprocessors, is largely out of the fastest growing tablet computer market; most devices use microchips designed by Apple and Cambridge-based Arm Holdings.

Intel admitted being behind competition during the announcement of Oak Trail’s retail name, the Z670.

Kevin O’Donovan, Intel’s Marketing Manager for Notebooks and Tablets, said, “You won’t find a lot of Intel-based tablets on the shelves at the moment.” Even so, O’Donovan asserted that they now have a viable and competitive product, “2011 is about becoming relevant.”

One of the Oak Trail’s largest selling points is the ability to run and use various tablet operating systems, including Android, Chrome, MeeGo and Windows 7. Presently, Arm-based chipsets, including Nvidia Tegra processors, are incapable of running Windows; however, Microsoft just made an announcement to support the popular Arm processors for its next OS release in 2012.
