Start64!We’ve talked already about Calxeda’s interesting server SoC that uses Cortex A9 cores and provides over ten times the efficiency of a Xeon server in certain tasks. ARM’s Cortex A15 architecture brings impressive IPC improvements over the A9 and Samsung is using the newer architecture for its future server processors.

Start64!There has been a love affair with the word “extreme” over the last few years. I really noticed the increase when “extreme” sports became popular, though it may well have happened prior without my noticing. Of course, using “sport” as a description of some of the activities is stretching it, also. Personally, I don’t consider tumbling down a hill and breaking limbs a “sport” so much as a moment of terribly unfortunate judgment.

Start64!LONDON – Fabless networking chip firm Cavium Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) has announced that it is planning to deliver a family of multicore system-chips based on full custom cores designed to implement the 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set architecture from ARM Holdings plc (Cambridge, England), The chips will be aimed at "cloud" and data center opportunities, the company said.

Start64!Memory capacities keep rising it seems with each new platform that comes out. Along with the increase in capacities comes an increase in speed that drives latency down and responsiveness higher. Intel's X79 platform has the ability to utilize up to 64GB of system memory in a quad channel configuration while the Z77 platform is still limited to dual channel configurations with four DIMM slots rather than the eight available on most X79 boards.

Start64!Hsinchu, Taiwan and Cambridge, UK – July 23, 2012 – TSMC (TWSE: 2330, NYSE: TSM) and ARM today announced a multi-year agreement extending their collaboration beyond 20-nanometer (nm) technology to deliver ARM processors on FinFET transistors, enabling the fabless industry to extend its market leadership in application processors.

Start64!Applied Micro Circuits Corporation today announced the world's first web server implementation running on a 64-bit ARM v8-compliant processor. This demonstration of an open-source web server application represents another critical milestone for X-Gene, AppliedMicro's "Server-on-a-Chip" solution designed to power next-generation cloud-computing data centers and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). It also represents the first 64-bit ARM development vehicle for the ecosystem community that will aid in the acceleration of server system development.

Start64!Some people may have read about our report on the server deals that ARM has signed, but a certain tidbit of information stands out more than the rest.  It appears that, after years and years of exertions, ARM Holdings finally has an architecture with 64-bit support.

First MIPS 64 Bit Mobile Processor Revealed

Start64!Reportedly, Ingenic has just signed a license agreement with Vivante to pair up the former company’s power MIPS CPUs with the latter’s new efficient GPUs. You’ll probably remember that late last year, the first Android 4 tablet was actually powered by a MIPS processor and not by an ARM one.

Start64!Processors licensor ARM Holdings, has recently disclosed the code names of its upcoming CPUs based on the company’s v8 architecture which are the first ARM cores to bring support for the 64-bit instruction set.

Start64!ARM will announce its first 64-bit processors later this year for servers and high-end smartphones, and is also taking steps to build up software support for the processor designs, said CEO Warren East earlier this week. The first 64-bit processors will be licensed to device makers and based on the ARMv8 architecture, which was announced in October. The 64-bit processors will be in volume production by 2014, after which it will reach devices, East said.

Start64!Introduced back in October last year, ADATA’s Premier memory series has just received the addition of a new set of 8GB memory modules, working at 1600MHz speeds, that are available in both DIMM and SO-DIMM form factors.  Compared to standard memory, these new Premier series modules are built only with DRAM chips that go through an extensive burn-in process designed to eliminate the parts that have a tendency to fail.

Start64!Corsair, one of the world’s most prominent providers of RAM memory modules for desktop and notebook computers, has announced 8GB and 16GB DDR3 memory upgrade kits for Apple iMacs, MacBook Pros and Mac mini systems.

Start64!G.Skill’s famous Ripjaws Z series of memory solutions has just received another member, a 64GB kit that is capable of reaching DDR3 2400MHz speeds in quad-channel mode when used together with Intel’s LGA 2011 processors based on the Sandy Bridge-E architecture.

Start64!GeIL, now that's a name we haven't heard in a while. The release of the X79 chipset, though, has brought with it an introduction to many companies we've dealt with in the past, but not so much recently. Talking to GeIL, we wondered what kind of kit we should be checking out today. I was all for some nice high speed Quad Channel memory and it didn't take long for my prayers to be answered with the EVO CORSA PC3-19200 kit we've got on our hands today.

Start64!At the moment it feels like we've got an almost 1 to 1 ratio when it comes to X79 motherboards and accompanying Quad Channel kits, especially over the last week as we see less boards coming in, but more RAM arriving with the latest company to offer us a Quad Channel Kit of RAM being Patriot.
