Professionals Fujitsu was able to create the fastest in the world's central processing unit capable of perform 128 billion calculations per second, the source. It is assumed that the processor has received the designation Venus SPARC64 VIIIfx, will enable Fujitsu to circumvent its main competitors - Intel and IBM - to regain the title and creator of the productive CPU, lost in 1999.


It is estimated, Venus SPARC64 VIIIfx ahead of the fastest processor Intel (Xeon 5500 the kernel Nehalem) approximately 2.5 times. By applying improved production methods, Fujitsu was able to place a crystal of eight cores. At the same time, managed to reduce energy consumption - for this indicator Venus is substantially outweighed by their predecessors.

Developers DDRdrive X1 surpassed «the fastest SSD», combining the advantages of DRAM and NAND

Solid state drives based on flash memory cards have many advantages, but not without flaws. In particular, the performance of flash-type NAND can become a bottleneck even the most high-performance system. To circumvent this shortcoming, engineers DDRdrive combined in one product dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) and flash-type NAND. Form a solid-state drive DDRdrive X1, made in the form of expansion cards with the interface PCI Express x1.


Reservoir is equipped with 4 GB of memory-type DRAM (four standard module volume by 1 GB each) and 4 GB of memory type NAND. The company estimates that the device is up to 300,000 input / output operations per second (IOPS) on the reading mode and 200,000 IOPS in the recording mode. These figures are for 2000% superior performance of conventional high-speed SSD, such as the Intel X25-E, and better than even the «very quickly» solid drive Fusion-io ioDrive Duo, released last month. Claimed to read and write speed of greater than 215, and 155 MB / s, respectively (For the sake of justice - there DDRdrive X1 yields not only ioDrive Duo, and Intel X25-E). Several drives can be included in the configuration of RAID 1, 0 or 5.



What's more novelty «superior» Intel X25-E, is the price, especially given the recent decline in the price of SSD Intel. If the Intel X25-E level of 32 GB is $ 390, the manufacturer DDRdrive X1 appreciated to $ 1495.

At the same time, when the Kingston Technology predicted increase in demand for DRAM memory of the third quarter, the DRAMeXchange said that prices for these products in the next few weeks will rise by 10-15%.

A pair of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of memory chips, Powerchip and Elpida, stopped supplying products to the spot market because of the overload, which then emerged as a result of increased demand. Soon, this should lead to an increase in 1-Gbit DDR2 chips in the price of up to $ 1.5 per unit in June, say observers, but as long as the price of 1-Gbit DDR2 chips are at the level of $ 1.2 and does not change.

According to DRAMeXchange contract prices for DRAM memory, too, will rise from $ 8-8,5 over 1 GB in the past month to $ 9-10. Some producers tend to operate with an even higher price - $ 12-13. But to reach this point they are already at the end of this month.

Increased demand for memory has also arisen because of the high level of sales of finished PCs. Another great hopes placed in the memory manufacturers Coming soon Windows7 OS and the associated increase in purchasing activity of their products.

AMD was able to press Intel processors on the market for PC

Manufacturers of microprocessors for PCs sold surplus stocks of its products that have accumulated due to a slowdown in the economy, the source, referring to the report of analysts of Mercury Research. Reduction of stocks, in turn, creates a «positive growth potential» for the next three or even six months. This view is somewhat different from the position of expert IDC, claiming that sales of microprocessors will decline during the first half.

The first quarter was marked by a reduction of sales of processors for 8.3% compared with the final quarter of last year. This figure is only slightly worse than the average seasonal decline at 7.4%. Interestingly, reducing demand noticeable impact on the processors for notebooks than the processors for desktops and servers.

According to analysts of Mercury Research, AMD was able to take advantage of the situation and select the quarter of almost 4% of the market with its powerful rival, Intel. The share of AMD at the end of the quarter accounted for 20.9% of total sales of microprocessors for PCs in the world, whereas in the previous quarter, this proportion was 17%. The percentage of Intel in the first months of this year, the period decreased from 82.1% to 78.2%.
