CoolerMaster CM Spawn Saturday, 22 January 2011 18:13   Earlier this year we took a look at CoolerMaster's Inferno MMORPG mouse and now we're looking at CoolerMaster's new product, Spawn, geared towards first-person shooters.
Cooler Master CM Inferno Review Saturday, 01 January 2011 17:36   The mouse is the bread and butter and ultimate tool for anyone who plays games on the PC. Over the past dozen years there's been an explosion in shapes and sizes of it and for all different utilities. It's evolved quite nicely from a few buttons and a mouse ball to lasers, lights, and more buttons than most people would ever know what to do with. That, however, is not the case for gamers. Cooler Master has a new mouse out specifically built for MMORPGs that are so popular, the Cooler Master Inferno.
EE Times reports that over half of Fab 25 here in Austin is using 110nm already for memory production.

Spansion, the joint venture between Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Fujitsu Ltd., said Tuesday (May 18) that it has accelerated its transition to 110-nm manufacturing process technology in response to customer demand for low-priced components.

We don't too often talk about AMD's memory production business, but this is as good as news of early 90nm CPU production would be to investors.

Infoworld covers AMD's plans for dual core in 2005.

The Direct Connect architecture used to build the Opteron processor makes it easy for AMD's designers to place two processor cores on the same silicon die, said Ben Williams, vice president of AMD's server and workstation business. Opteron features an integrated memory controller and Hypertransport interconnects that can connect the processor to the I/O port or directly to another processor, he said.

Tech Report has reviewed the Opteron 150 and 250. Nope, no Opteron loving for AMDZone.

If I were building (or, implausibly perhaps, buying) my ultimate workstation right now, I'd want a pair of Opteron 250s beating at the heart of it. The benchmarks speak volumes. For single-processor systems, the Opteron 150 looks like the fastest x86 CPU on the planet. In a multiprocessor configuration, the Opteron 250 scales up very well, even without the benefit of an optimal memory configuration, a NUMA-aware OS, or 64-bit extensions.

- OEMs and Solution Providers can now offer enterprises the highest-performing x86 2P and 4P platforms, based on the AMD Opteron(tm) processor -

SUNNYVALE, CALIF.-May 18, 2004-AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced new additions to the award-winning AMD Opteron(tm) processor family - Models 850, 250 and 150 - once again equipping servers and workstations with the highest performing two-way and four-way x86 processors. The AMD Opteron processor offers industry-leading 32-bit performance with the power of 64-bit computing.

"Our newest models of the AMD Opteron processor feature Direct Connect Architecture, which supplies benefits and system advantages well beyond extending the instruction set," said Marty Seyer, vice president and general manager of the Microprocessor Business Unit, AMD. "Our product line will be further enhanced by our rapid transition to 90 nanometer manufacturing, which will provide us a greater flexibility to boost processor performance, lower power or both. We have already begun initial production of 90nm AMD64 processors, and we are on target to begin shipping 90nm processors for revenue in the third quarter."

Record-setting performance for two-way systems
"Our AMD Opteron processor-based Sun Fire V20z server continues to set new standards for two-processor server performance. The Sun Fire V20z server, equipped with the new AMD Opteron processor Model 250, currently holds the record as the fastest two CPU secure web server1. This is in addition to achieving a 37 percent improvement in the price/performance ratio over the nearest competing 32-bit system based on the SPECjAppServer2002(tm) benchmark2 and setting a world record for dual CPU systems on
two-tier SAP(r) Sales and Distribution Standard Application Benchmark3," said Souheil Saliba, vice president of marketing and strategy at Sun Microsystems, Inc. "For Sun, the AMD Opteron processor means high-performance 32- and 64-bit x86 systems with the flexibility to support multiple operating systems including the Solaris Operating System, Red Hat Linux and SuSE Linux, and is Microsoft(r) Windows(r) Hardware Qualification List (WHQL) certified."

The SPECjAppServer2002 is a client/server benchmark for measuring the performance of Java Enterprise Application Servers in a complete, end-to-end Web application. The two-tier SAP SD Standard Application Benchmark simulates full business workloads with complete order, delivery, and invoice processing and represents the critical tasks performed in real-world e-business environments.

IBM recently announced the addition of AMD Opteron processor-based systems to its Deep Computing Capacity on Demand Center in Poughkeepsie, NY. Now, IBM customers will have access via the Internet to immensely powerful, highly secure AMD Opteron processor-based supercomputers.

"As the first top-tier vendor to offer AMD Opteron processor-based servers and workstations, and the only vendor to offer deep computing on demand, IBM continues to see excellent response and adoption from HPC environments that demand flexibility and performance, especially in floating-point intensive workloads," said Bob Lenard, director, IBM eServer products. "The latest models of the AMD Opteron processor will further strengthen our lead with our eServer 325 and IntelliStation offerings and give customers the scalability of 64-bit computing without sacrificing 32-bit compatibility or performance."

The AMD Opteron processor Model 250 is immediately available worldwide. High-performance dual-processor workstations and servers from leading system builders worldwide are expected to be available at launch.

Re-energizing the four-way market
"AMD's approach with Direct Connect Architecture tackles many of the I/O and scalability challenges in the x86 server market," said Mark Melenovsky, director, server research, IDC. "The company's AMD Opteron processor and its Direct Connect Architecture will help to make four-way processor and greater systems a more economical alternative to clustering multiple two-way servers for a number of customer workloads."
