So far, not many are convinced of the need to change your notebook for the “new”ultrabooks and Intel is that if there is commitment now to convince the millions of potential buyers, AMD may play a convincing enough letter to the next launch of the new laptop and desktop platform, Trinity.

More over, considering that Intel‘s net profit soared in Q1 of 2011, there is cash to spend so much money that the campaign is called the “hundreds of millions of dollars”, one of the most powerful made ??by the mark in the last ten years and that makes what they call the new age of computing

It all started with this YouTube video and a television advertising campaign, plus the publicity possible to find in the street in the form of posters and the site will be created to promote this new format laptops powered by Intel.

Now, at first said “new” ultrabooks because the idea originally comes from Apple with its MacBook Air, despite having Intel hardware inside is the work of Apple.

The challenge of these teams is not trivial, since they expect to be replacing the cumbersome and heavy laptops that we have today, targeted at high performanceCPU and graphical, with ultra compact cooling system and also with batteries length, all in a small space. We had the opportunity to try one of these new teams, the Acer Aspire TimelineU.

We leave you with the video Ultrabook: Desperado, that the style of the Old Westhopes to show graphically the difference between the “old notebooks” and “new ultrabooks


Paul Otellini, Intel President and CEO, begins the press release announcing thecompany’s financial results as follows: “The 2011 was a banner year for Intel.” Andno wonder, since in 2011 they sold the sum of USD $ 54,000 million (USD $ 10,000million more than in 2010), registering a gain directly into the pockets of USD $ 12,900 million.

In detail, the area of ??PCs for consumers sold USD $ 35,400 million, up 17% over2010, while the group of data centers played along with a USD $ 10,100 million (up 17%), other architectures Intel reported USD $ 5,000 million (64% above) and the division of Intel CPUs and chipsets for Atom sold USD $ 1,200 million, a precipitous drop of 25% by the year 2010.

In terms of figures bounded, in the last three months of last year (Q4) were sold USD$ 13,900 million and earned USD $ 3,400 million, with Atom being the only one whohas been downward, like all year, but with a 57% difference according to the Q4 of last year, showing that this technology is already obsolete and Intel are givingsomething so strong the issue of Ultrabooks, natural replacement for netbooks with Atom.

Welcome everyone, possibly the last years of humanity as we know it today. In addition to the eventual end of the world, an event that we plan to fully cover many things we hope to mark a milestone in the next 12 months come upon us.

A Apple has done well with the Macbook Air, to the point that several products have attempted to compete with the lightweight device. Intel wants to give a hand to the laptop manufacturer, and it will be flooding the market in the coming days with the concept of ultrabooks equipment more portable than ordinary notebooks.
The idea of ??creating a niche sub-notebook with portability, sacrificing some raw power, can work well in the market of netbooks tired and too basic specifications, products that are already being displaced by the tablets. But as they say here, there are no bad products, but poor prices. Be seen whether the ultrabooks achieve ubiquitous off against Macbook Air, or succumb to its own weight.
In the best case, delete the netbook world and will become the de facto choice between tablets and notebooks more powerful (and more expensive). Dreaming is free.
28nm graphic

Most factories are preparing to move to the next step in miniaturization of transistors, and plots to take over the process will begin 28nm TSMC, one of many higher volume of production where fall (again) the following GPUs generation.
AMD will be premiering at the beginning of this year’s series Radeon HD 7000, which will be made to this size. NVIDIA hopes to show its official response, code-named Kepler, a few months or weeks depending on how their development. Both have the goal of gambling outweigh the 40nm previous litters, and again give rise to another war of fanboys in our forums.
Ivy Bridge

Intel’s next step is the miniaturization of the Sandy Bridge architecture, which will use 3D transistors. There will be a simple 22nm production, which is giving new lower TDP chips, there is another new feature under the hood: PCI Express 3.0, DirectX 11, Quick Sync Video 2.0 and native support USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt by Panther Point, the new chipset that will accompany the new processors – unless you decide to stay a little longer to Cougar Point.
Not many details more than four months after its release, but before the end of the first half of 2012 are in the windows should be highly available. Intel is expected that the Core i5-3570K is the most highlight of all the models have unlocked multiplier.
Windows 8 and the war in tablets

Microsoft’s operating system was never friendly touch screen computers, but Windows 8 is emerging as the perfect companion for them. Not only be friendly with ARM, straight version that could not have the classic desktop and you can come to the market for tablets with the architecture used in the industry, but also with x86, giving way to all-in- a capacitive screens. Thereafter, expect an avalanche of mobile products incorporating Windows 8.
The possibilities are endless, and hope many will switch to the new operating system Microsoft Windows if they manage to transform into a complete ecosystem, integrating Live, XBOX and other services into one. That is exactly what Android and webOS have not, and IOS to a lesser degree.
Piledriver, a second chance

Bulldozer has not done any good by 2011 (at least under Windows), but still a good choice for its price. This should be much better second half, Piledriver make time for its release, and all the Windows software is ready for the new architecture.
The new architecture is reported to be 10% more powerful than Bulldozer, which may not be enough to offer more than Ivy Bridge, but the versions with integrated graphics should kick Intel’s ass again.
If AMD manages to position your product in the market for low-power devices and good graphics in a much more profound, is sure to be the de facto choice to accompany Windows 8, there are no problems with the new architecture of “modules” of AMD.
The end of the worldThis December 21 is supposedly the end of the world. Many prophecies seem to have interbred with the Mayan prediction that indicates this day as the end of an era.It could be a change socio-economic-cultural, or innocence of our predecessors, or in respect of death of civilization. Shift, firestorms, nuclear wars, diseases and pests, rpm, alien invasion, anything accepted with open arms, except for any damage to your PC.

We have already seen everything that has happened in Thailand with flooding in the area and drive manufacturers based in it, such as Seagate and Western Digital. It isalso an issue that negatively impacted the PC industry in general, and thanks to the lack of this key component, had to deliver fewer units than expected in recent months.

It’s so well that Intel just reported that during the period of three months surroundingthe holidays, while sales will increase, they will not be enough to meet the expectations of the company previously set when expected revenue $ 13,700million, a figure that has been reduced by $ 1,000 million.

Facing the situation, Intel commented that “the entire production chain of PCs in theworld are reducing their inventories,” which results in also “buy fewer of microprocessors” following the issue of hard drives. They also said they expected the situation to rise again during the middle of 2012, when in general all startheading back to normal, as predicted. intel should need an insurance service for this.
