Microsoft Shares More Clues About Longhorn Server
Posted by man1c on 16 Jun 2005 - 12:19
Longhorn Server Beta 1 looks likely to hit by August. And Microsoft is considering a future home version of its Windows Server product, too.

Microsoft is continuing to drop new clues about what users can expect in Longhorn Server, the version of its Windows Server product slated to ship in 2007, and beyond.
During an online Web chat on Wednesday, Windows Server Senior Vice President Bob Muglia touched on everything from a possible new home version of Windows Server, to the future of Active Directory.

Muglia reconfirmed that Longhorn Server Beta 1 will ship this summer, around the same time as Longhorn client Beta 1. And based on a comment from one of the Microsoft chat moderators, it sounds as if the current plan is to have code in testers' hands by August.

The moderator told participants to "please join us in the first part of August for a chat about Longhorn Server Beta 1."

While Microsoft potentially could hold an online chat about Longhorn Server Beta 1 before the company releases code, it would be uncharacteristic for the company to do so.

Microsoft officials, contacted after the chat, were not available to comment on whether Longhorn Server Beta 1 will be available to testers by August.

Intel to add memory controllers to future Xeons, Itanics
Posted by man1c on 16 Jun 2005 - 12:06
Intel is to follow AMD's lead and integrate memory controllers onto its x86 server processors, computer maker SGI has claimed.

Speaking to reporters this week, SGI's Senior VP and CTO, Eng Lim Goh, said the unified chipset will also see the memory controller moved from its traditional North Bridge location and onto the processor die.

It's not going to happen until 2007, apparently, but when it comes it will be part of the chip giant's scheme to ship system logic that supports both its Xeon processor range and its Itanium family.

Intel's plan to merge its Xeon and Itanium chipsets goes back to beyond April 2004, when the first hints that it had such a goal in mind emerged. In July 2004, Jason Waxman, then director of multiprocessor marketing for Intel's Enterprise Product Group, now its Digital Enterprise Group, said the company would ship unified chipsets by 2007.

AMD Details Early Quad-Core Plans
Posted by man1c on 11 Jun 2005 - 07:10
In a detailed briefing for analysts in New York on Friday, executives at Advanced Micro Devices painted the company as making "irreversible progress" into new architectures, specifically multicore microprocessors and 64-bit processing.

Executives confirmed that the company plans to enhance its Opteron enterprise processor line to four cores in 2007, adding focused optimizations to manage power and improve throughput.

Going forward, AMD executives said its progress will be defined by metrics like "throughput per watts per dollars", backed by specific technologies that it will try to establish as industry standards, rather than following rival Intel's lead.

"We believe the purpose of our company is to reinvent the dynamics of the microprocessor industry," said Hector Ruiz, AMD's president, chairman and chief executive officer.

AMD Plans 64-Bit Sempron Processors
Posted by man1c on 10 Jun 2005 - 09:46
AMD is planning a 64-bit version of its Sempron processor, presaging a down-market duel in which the scrappy semiconductor vendor will battle Intel's upcoming 64-bit Celeron D for control of the so-called "value-priced" market segment, where PCs can sell for as little as $300.

"AMD can confirm that we will enable 64-bit capability on the AMD Sempron processor this year," said AMD spokeswoman Cathy Abbinanti.

Abbinanti declined to provide additional details. However, in technical terms, adding 64-bits into Sempron won't be much of a stretch. The feature is already widely deployed throughout AMD's Athlon 64 and Opteron processors. And selected technical documentation, as well as message traffic on AMD user forums, indicates that the company has at least begun folding information on the feature into some of its detailed guides for system designers and programmers.

Intel readies 64bit Celerons
Posted by man1c on 07 Jun 2005 - 04:53
THERE ARE FEW changes to Intel's desktop CPU ahead, according to a week 23 roadmap dated early June and festooning the walls of the Porcupine pub yesterday.

But Intel has tweaked the "platform descriptors" for its business PCs to "Professional Business Platform" and "Fundamental Business Platform".

However, Intel has added the 945GZ Express chipset to its maps. And in the second quarter of next year, the firm introduces the Bridge Creek move, meaning we'll see Extreme Edition and 900 series processors using the Broadwater CS series, as well as mainstream processors using the 600, the 800 and the 900 sequence.

Intel claims that dual core products are already shipping with the intro of the 820, the 830 and the 840 processors. These are 2 times 1MB L2 cache, using the EM64T, execute disable and EIST. Intel is converting its 500 series of Pentium 4s to support EM64T. It will convert its Intel Celeron Ds and that started round about now.

Specifix Linux 0.24 (ALPHA) available x86_64
Posted by man1c on 03 Jun 2005 - 13:20
We are happy to announce rpath Linux 0.24. Previously called
"Specifix Linux", this is the first release of the Linux distribution
under the new "rpath Linux" name.

The package set included in the ISO images of this release is smaller
than Specifix Linux 0.23. There are packages that are considered
a part of the OS, but not included on the CD. The group-os group
defines the entire set of packages that makes up the OS. group-os
includes group-dist, which defines what goes on the ISO images. Most
of the packages that have been moved from group-dist to group-os are
servers that do not need to be installed on most systems. Others
are less-used packages, or packages that duplicate functionality
provided by other packages.

Posted by man1c on 29 May 2005 - 10:32
Thanking testers for their hard work debugging Windows XP x64 Edition, Microsoft will be offering beta participants a full retail copy of the 64-bit operating system in downloadable form. Windows Beta Team officials said product keys and download links were being prepared, and would be sent to testers within a few weeks.

"As a small measure of our appreciation for your help in testing Windows Server SP1 and Windows x64 on the Technical Beta, we are offering active participants a complimentary full copy of Windows Professional x64 Edition," read an e-mail sent to testers." This will be done as a downloadable ISO file only, but will be a licensed copy of Windows Professional x64 Edition. (i.e. not an eval copy)"

Intel quietly adds DRM to new chips
Posted by man1c on 27 May 2005 - 12:56
Microsoft and the entertainment industry's holy grail of controlling copyright through the motherboard has moved a step closer with Intel Corp. now embedding digital rights management within in its latest dual-core processor Pentium D and accompanying 945 chipset.

Officially launched worldwide on the May 26, the new offerings come DRM-enabled and will, at least in theory, allow copyright holders to prevent unauthorized copying and distribution of copyrighted materials from the motherboard rather than through the operating system as is currently the case.

While Intel steered clear of mentioning the new DRM technology at its Australian launch of the new products, Intel's Australian technical manager Graham Tucker publicly confirmed Microsoft-flavored DRM technology will be a feature of Pentium D and 945.
