    Anandtech: Apple's iPod Touch (2010) Review, Not a Poor Man's iPhone 4




    Last week Apple announced a complete overhaul of its iPod lineup including a new Shuffle, a new Nano (with multitouch screen) and a new iPod Touch. While the nano looks cool, it’s pricey and honestly I haven’t been interested in a dedicated MP3 player in about a decade.

    The new iPod Touch however piqued my interest. With many of the same specs as the iPhone 4, I wondered if the new Touch might be a neat way to get most of the functionality of the 4 without the albatross of a contract AT&T hangs around your neck.

    It turns out there’s a lot more than a cellular radio that separates the new iPod Touch from the iPhone 4.

    Anandtech: Server Clash: DELL's Quad Opteron DELL R815 vs HP's DL380 G7 and SGI's Alt

    Three totally different servers in one test: the dual Xeon X5670 HP DL380 G7, the quad Xeon X7560 SGI Altix UV10 and the Quad Opteron 6174 Dell R815. Three servers with a different platform and built from a different vision. Why place them in one comparitive article? Because they can all be used for the same tasks: virtualization building blocks, ERP server, or HPC number cruncher. Our focus is on the first task, as we went through a massive battery of performance and power consumption measurements.


    Join us as we present you the first virtualized performance per watt comparison of real OEM server products.

    Anandtech: Virtualization - Ask the Experts #4

    Our Ask the Experts series continues with another round of questions.

    A couple of months ago we ran a webcast with Intel Fellow, Rich Uhlig, VMware Chief Platform Architect, Rich Brunner and myself. The goal was to talk about the past, present and future of virtualization. In preparation for the webcast we solicited questions from all of you, unfortunately we only had an hour during the webcast to address them. Rich Uhlig from Intel, Rich Brunner from VMware and our own Johan de Gelas all agreed to answer some of your questions in a 6 part series we're calling Ask the Experts. Each week we'll showcase three questions you guys asked about virtualization and provide answers from our panel of three experts. These responses haven't been edited and come straight from the experts.

    If you'd like to see your question answered here leave it in the comments. While we can't guarantee we'll get to everything, we'll try to pick a few from the comments to answer as the weeks go on.

    Anandtech: ASUS' N82Jv: Jack-Of-All-Trades

    Over the years, we've looked at many of ASUS' mobile offerings. From the lowly Eee PC up through gaming powerhouses, ASUS has something for everyone. They're looking to increase market share in the mobile world, and with products like the N82Jv we're looking at today there's no reason they shouldn't succeed. The last time we looked at their multimedia N-series with the N61Jv, we liked the general idea but found the combination of a 16" chassis with a middling display and battery life to be lacking. Can the 14" newcomer change our feeling?


    Six months has also brought a lot more competition in the realm of Arrandale laptops as well as laptops equipped with Optimus Technology. Besides packing more power into a smaller form factor, ASUS updated the exterior to help the N82Jv stand out from the crowd. Join us as we investigate this laptop and see where it excels, and where it could still use a bit more TLC.

    Anandtech: NVIDIA’s GeForce GTS 450: Pushing Fermi In To The Mainstream

    After the drawn out launch of GF100 and the GTX 400 series earlier this year, NVIDIA has been firing on all cylinders when it comes to the launch of the rest of the Fermi family. In July we saw the launch of the GF104 GPU and the GTX 460 it powers, providing a surprising tweak to the Fermi architecture on what should have been a simple waterfall part, and in the process trampling AMD’s Radeon HD 5830 at the $200 price point. For the first time in over a year we saw an NVIDIA product come out that was hyper-competitive on performance and pricing, the kind of competition we sorely miss.

    Now 2 months after that launch we’re going to find out if lightning strikes twice. Today NVIDIA is launching the next desktop video card in the 400 series: GTS 450 Powering it is their new Fermi family GPU – GF106 – the next in the line of successively smaller Fermi GPUs for cheaper products. Targeted directly against AMD’s Radeon HD 5700 series,

    Anandtech: Boxee Box : The Inside Story

    Boxee and D-Link announced the availability of the Boxee Box for pre-order on Amazon today. At CES 2010, they demonstrated the Boxee Box with the Tegra 2 SoC inside. The press release today brings the news that the Tegra 2 has been replaced by Intel’s CE4100. This is one of the first mainstream products in the market to incorporate an Intel x86 based SoC.


    What happened behind the scenes? Why did Boxee and D-Link decide to drop Tegra 2? What are the details of the new SoC in the Boxee Box? What capabilities are brought forward by the Boxee Box in the media streamer market? How would it compare with a HTPC? Read on to find out more about the Boxee Box and our analysis of today’s announcements.

    Anandtech: Intel Demos Sandy Bridge, Shows off Video Transcode Engine

    Today marks the first day of our IDF 2010 coverage and we just left Dadi Perlmutter's keynote. Keeping up with tradition, Dadi's keynote focused on two of Intel's upcoming microprocessors.

    Dadi began his architecture talk with a reference to Westmere EX. The follow-on to Nehalem EX brings the architecture down to a 32nm manufacturing process. The transistor shrink enables Intel to increase core count from 8 on Nehalem EX to 10 on Westmere EX (20 threads).


    Westmere EX is socket compatible with current Nehalem EX systems. Along with AES-NI support, Westmere EX also enables support for 32GB DIMMs. Bringing total system memory support from 1TB (64 DIMM slots) to 2TB with Westmere EX.

    Read on for more details on Sandy Bridge.

    Anandtech: IDF 2010 - Computing Solutions provider, not just Chipmaker

    The Intel Developer Forum kicked off today with a keynote by Intel CEO Paul Otellini in San Francisco. Intel's focus in today's keynote has threefold. First, the change in the chipmaker's focus from being exclusively a chip company, to a much more comprehensive computing solutions provider. Second, the new three pillars of computing that Intel sees for continuing computing growth - including a comprehensive look at WiDi, and finally Sandy Bridge which Anand just covered .


    We just left the keynote floor, read on for more coverage.

    Anandtech: Intel Demos Many Integrated Core (MIC) Cloud Raytracer

    Intel is no stranger to raytracing - we've seen demonstrations such as Quake IV ported to an Intel-designed raytracer along with a number of other demos in the past. The promise of raytrace renderers over today's conventional raster engines for games and desktop 3D has always been increased realism and theoretically near linear scaling. Of course, the problem until now has been that raytracers haven't been able to maintain playable framerate at desktop resolutions.


    Yesterday Intel demonstrated a new example of raytraced graphics on the desktop using a raytrace rendered version of Wolfstein. This time, it was based around a cloud-centric model where frames are rendered on 4 servers, each with a 32-core codename Knight's Ferry silicon at the core. Think OnLive but raytraced. Read on for the whole news scoop.
