Apple Insider is reporting reliable 'rumors' from How To Arena, stating that the iMac, will receive an update with Intel's next-generation Ivy Bridge CPUs in the June or July.
An updated processor roadmap dug up by Computerbase.de shows that Intel plans to release its Haswell processor in March 2013.
Haswell, whose processor models are currently not known will be Intel's first 22 nm chip and includes the “3-D transistor” technology from Ivy Bridge, plus a bunch of new features including AVX2 and transactional synchronisation extensions - a memory technology that Intel hopes will improve shared memory performance.
Optical cables for Thunderbolt ports which enable faster data transfer over longer distances will be available later this year, Intel announced yesterday. Thunderbolt, introduced just over a year ago, is a high-speed connector technology that shuffles data between computers and peripherals. Current solutions are based on copper, but optical cable could provide much more bandwidth and on longer cable runs.
Hacks working for CPU-World have been given a briefing by the suits at Chipzilla about the performance of its latest Ivy Bridge CPU.
Apparently it is all down to something that Intel has worked out called the Tick Tock regime, which appears to have been developed by the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland. In Oxford. It is a cadence. It is also the clock ticking and tocking in the belly of the pirate, Captain Hook, in Peter Pan.
Intel Corp. (INTC), the world’s biggest chipmaker, is considering creating an online pay-television service that works on TV sets, computers and mobile devices, according to three people with knowledge of the plans.
Intel reached out to media companies and cable channels about getting the rights to broadcast shows, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions aren’t public. Intel would sell a Web-connected set-top box capable of streaming TV and video-on-demand programming, the Wall Street Journal reported earlier today.
