As expected we now have a confirmation that the Xserve will be updated in the near future. The new Xserve will contain the Nahalem processor option and look like they could go live any day now.
The University of Rochester has the first running 3D processor. The processor attempts to be more efficient at running multiple processes at once by spreading the workload over multiple processors stacked on one another.. The "cube" is currently running at 1.4GHz.
At the Intel Developer Forum Yesterday, Intel announced new, very small Centrino Processors for Notebook computers. The processors are a result of the reasearch and development done for the Macbook Air. Per Arstechnica, "Centrino processors will be used in both Lenovo’s X301 and HP’s 2530p." "Both the SL9400 (1.8GHz) and the SL9300 (1.6GHz) use a 1066MHz FSB and carry 6MB of L2 cache. Intel is also introducing a pair of 10W processors: the SU9400 (1.4GHz) and SU9300 (1.2GHz). Both of these chips run on an 800MHz FSB and carry 3MB of L2 cache." Its nice to see more trickle down affect on the overall computing world. Now if they could fit that into an iPhone we’ll be all set.
