For several days it was rumored that by the end of this month launched its new microprocessors Intel Core i3 3 rd generation, ending rumor was confirmed today with the launch of the new microprocessors Core i3 3rd generation laptops.
The new chip Core i3 3 rd generation of laptops are based on the core-MB Ivy Bridge, variant based on Ivy Bridge microarchitecture aimed at notebooks and Ultrabooks.
The first two members of the family of microprocessors Core i3 3rd generation Intel launched today are:
Dual-core microprocessor running at 1.8GHz, with its HyperThreading technology is capable of running four threads simultaneously processing, has a 3MB L3, a memory controller DDR3-1600 Dual Channel Graphics Intel Graphics HD 4000. Its TDP is 17W and is focused on Ultrabooks.
Dual core microprocessor running at 2.4GHz, with its HyperThreading technology is capable of running four threads simultaneously processing, has a 3MB L3, a memory controller DDR3-1600 Dual Channel Graphics Intel Graphics HD 4000. Its TDP is 35W and is focused on notebooks.
Both chips have a suggested retail price of U.S. $ 225

For have revealed details of its upcoming ARM Calxeda Server, computer chips based on this architecture and provide a moderate performance but with an energy very, very low.
The company showed its results for the benchmark ApacheBench v2.3 at the following platform: server CPU EnergyCore Calxeda ECX-1000 quad-core running at 1.1 GHz, 4GB of memory and DDR3L-1066 SATA hard drive spinning at 7200rpm, this to move the operating system Ubuntu Server v12.04.
The results? Against an E3-1240 Intel Xeon quad-core also running at 3.3GHz and, underwent both a requirement of one million requests. The Calxeda chip processed 5,500 requests per second, while the Xeon 6950. Intel certainly pays a little better, but what about power consumption? Here's the surprise, as the ECX-1000 processor has a TDP of just over 5W, while Intel's TDP is 80W and the platform was full 102W.
Taking account, Calxeda says that in terms of processing power per Watt they are 15 times higher, pending more benchmarks that show us that a server based on the ARM architecture is a more viable than x86, so little by little more companies try to push to get their ARM products.

A couple of months were leaked specifications unreleased Intel Core i3-based third-generation micro-architecture Ivy Bridge; CPUs rumored to be delayed until August.
Intel goes to dispel rumors and claims that after 24 June (probably the last week of this month) will launch their new Core i3 microprocessors third generation, and has no intention of postergarlos.
Microprocessors Core i3 3rd generation will be available in the variants Ivy Bridge-DT desktop, and Ivy Bridge-MB for laptops (notebooks) and will consist of two x86 cores, the IGPs HD Graphics 4000 or HD Graphics 2500 depending on model, with its HyperThreading technology will be able to run up to four processing threads simultaneously, and 3MB of L3.
