Silicon Graphics sees in the future computers from 10000 processor kernels

At conference Supercomputing 2008 company Silicon Graphics has suggested to glance in the future, having presented Concept computer Molecule.

Just as futuristic concept cars provide guidance on potential of innovations with reference to cars, Concept Molecule illustrates, as the multinuclear technology of processors for consumer devices with small power consumption can unite with technology of cooling Silicon Graphics Kelvin, having provided placing more than 10000 processor kernels in one rack.

Engineers Silicon Graphics have created system in which are balanced productivity of processors, throughput of memory and power consumption. The basic advantages Silicon Graphics Molecule in comparison with existing decisions are that:
  • High parallelism — more than 20000 streams of execution that in 40 more than at usual one-rack-mount cluster;
  • High throughput of memory — 15 TB/WITH, more than in 20 more than at usual one-rack-mount cluster;
  • The best parity between throughput and productivity, than at x86-compatible processors;
  • More high efficiency (approximately in 3,5 times) counting on one rack;
  • Smaller power consumption of processors and memory;
  • The high density of configuration provided with highly effective technology of cooling Silicon Graphics Kelvin;
  • The flexibility of an operational environment consisting in possibility of use of various versions Linux and Microsoft Windows.

If to the one-rack-mount system based on concept Silicon Graphics Molecule, once it is fated to enter the market, on productivity and throughput it will be equal 750 high-efficiency personal computers, the developer confirms. Thus it consumes twice less energy and occupies in 70 times of less place.

Eee PC 901GO — netbuk ASUS with a great volume SSD and more capacious battery

The resource, often being a source of our information, so far as concerns novelties in the field of the compact computers known as notebook, has confirmed existence of one interesting model from family ASUS EeePC — EeePC901-BK051X.

Apparently on a label on notebook, its configuration is presented by such components: OS Windows XP, 16-GB the SSD-store, 1 GB memories DDR2, processor Intel Atom N270, a network 10/100 Mbit/with Ethernet + wireless interface Wi-Fi 802.11n, built in 1,3-Mp the chamber, support Bluetooth, the battery (Panasonic NCR18650) capacity 870 mach.

It is necessary to remind that in itself notebook Eee PC 901 is quite good acquisition, but always it is possible to improve some components, possibly, have thought in ASUS and have offered improvement in the form of the increased capacity of the solid-state store and the battery of the raised capacity. For many mobile users these two factors often play a predominating role in business of a choice and, actually, raise comfort at work with notebook.

Last also is reached at the expense of higher speed of work SSD which is equal now 50 MB/WITH at record and 87 MB/WITH at reading.

Nevertheless, for these improvements, in comparison with strongly fallen in price model 900A which costs now only 280 dollars, it is necessary to fork up — the price of version Eee PC 901GO — 505 dollars


Two products DDR3 of manufacture Samsung precisely will approach for platforms Intel

South Korean company Samsung Electronics declared that two decisions DDR3 made by it have received "good" from Intel on teamwork with platforms Core i7 (Nehalem). One of decisions represents a component of memory DDR3 SDRAM (x8), and the second — module DDR3-1066 in volume 4 GB, intended for desktop personal computers.

In the specified products chips of memory in density of 2 Gbit made on norms of 50 nanometers are used. Use of norms of 50 nanometers, according to Samsung, has essentially reduced power consumption in comparison with memory DDR3 in density of 1 Gbit (the difference reaches 40 % at speed of an exchange 1333 Mbit/c);

According to experts of company IDC, next year on share DDR3 29 % of market DRAM, and by 2011 this size age to 72 % is necessary. In turn, the share of products in density of 2 Gbit for this period will grow about 3 % to 33 %.

AMD Phenom II: the scheme of names, a starting ruler and a modelling number-2009

Not has confirmed the earlier information that AMD will instead of current symbols models their CPU, including 4 digits, 5 - character name. On the contrary, the names of the future Phenom II will contain only three digits.

Earlier information that AMD will enter instead of present designations of the models CPU including 4 figures, 5-symbolical names has not proved to be true. On the contrary, names future Phenom II will consist only of three figures.

The senior ruler Phenom II X4 800/900 will be presented by 4-nuclear models working on frequency to 3 GHz. The volume of cache-memory L2+L3 such CPU will make 6 or 8 MB depending on a ruler. They debut in January models Phenom II X4 940 (3,0 GHz) and Phenom II X4 920 (2,8 GHz). They will have socket Socket AM2 +. In February the ruler will be filled up with models Phenom II X4 925, 910, 810 and 805 c with socket Socket AM3 and support of memory DDR2/3.

45-nanometers tryohjadernye processors will be let out in series Phenom II X3 700. Pioneers in the name of models Phenom II X3 720 (2,8 GHz, 7,5 MB a memory cache) and 710 (2,6 GHz).

In more accessible ruler Athlon AMD will let out series X4 600 (four kernels, without cache L3, frequency to 2,7 GHz, exit date — April), X3 400 (three kernels, without cache L3, frequency to 2,8 GHz, exit date — April) and X2 400 (two kernels, without cache L3, frequency to 2,8 GHz, exit date — June).

It is necessary to notice that AMD plans to give the big possibilities to fans of dispersal, at least, in the senior rulers. So, thanks to technology Advanced Clock Calibration it is supposed that Phenom II X4 can reach frequencies in 4 GHz and above. Whether it in that case will make competition Nehalem? Will show tests.
