DNP Intel roadmap outs ten core Xeon E52600 V2 ten core Ivy Bridge CPU

Intel may have recently spilled its Q3 guts for 2012, but we highly doubt that the chip maker planned on outing its forthcoming projects for next year. An alleged internal slide makes the claim that the silicon giant plans to introduce a 10-core Xeon E5-2600 V2 Ivy Bridge-EP CPU in the third quarter of 2013. Compatible with Socket R LGA 2011 motherboards, this brute will max out at 20 threads through HyperThreading. Packing 30MB of L3 cache, this unannounced Ivy Bridge supports up to 1866MHz of DDR3 system RAM. If these specifications have whet your appetite, the Xeon E5-2600 V2 is only the tip of the iceberg — Chipzilla is said to also have a 12-core processor in the pipeline as well.

One Key Way the iPhone 5 Totally Destroys the CompetitionWe got hints from an early Geekbench result that the iPhone 5 was going to be flying. It seems that Apple’s really has worked some magic, both with iOS 6 and its custom silicon, to make the iPhone 5 absolutely blazing at crunching Javascript. Browsing on the iPhone 5 is going to be lightning quick.

AnandTech managed to grab an iPhone 5 review sample to run some quick SunSpider Javascript benchmark tests, and well, you can see for yourself below. Not only does the iPhone 5 destroy Android’s best, but it beats Intel’s Atom chips too.

A couple of caveats here, though. This browser test uses the default browser on each platform, so those of you using Chrome on Android could see faster results (let us know in the comments if you get a chance to run it). According to Intel, as this kind of processing relies heavily on the memory interface of the SoCs, its Atom could easily best chips based on the Cortex A9 spec because of memory speed issues. It seems Apple’s custom silicon has removed these kinds of memory problems, making the iPhone 5 the fastest mobile Javascript cruncher ever seen.

Hopefully the rest of the system is absolutely blazing too, because no one likes to wait around for things to happen. We all suffer from hourglass syndrome, right? [AnandTech]

WOOHOO! A Giant Magazine Publisher Just Dropped $10 Million On This Startup

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/unified-advance-publications-funding-2012-6

Advertising Shot 400x218

Unified, whose software is used by brands and ad agencies to buy, manage, and measure how ads perform on social networks, just raised $10 million from Advance Publications, the owner of magazine publisher Condé Nast.

The startup also pulled in another $4 million from Silicon Valley Bank, for a total of $14 million.

CEO Sheldon Owen’s reaction on signing up Advance: “Woohoo!”

“They own an incredible amount of media properties and understand social is the future of advertising,” said Dave Donahue, Unified’s head of communications.

Andrew Siegel, a former Yahoo dealmaker who joined Advance in 2010, is joining Unified’s board.

Unified has been around for a little over a year. Its revenues are already in the double-digit millions, Donahue said. Microsoft, BMW, and GE are among its 200 clients.

The company plans on using the funds to grow sales, ramp up its tech by doubling the engineering team in the next four months, and invest in marketing.

Researchers develop silicon ReRAM chip, send warning shot to Flash memory

Researchers develop silicon ReRAM chip, send warning shot to Flash memory

Does the word ReRAM ring a bell? No? Well, the key point is that it’s much faster than NAND memory, and it’s making its way into chips from Elpida, Sharp and Panasonic. Further proof that ReRAM is on the up and up? Researchers at University College London have used this technology to make a chip that operates at 100 times the speed of standard Flash memory. The device is composed completely of silicon oxide, which improves the chip’s resistance, and it doesn’t require a vacuum to work (which makes it cheaper to produce). But this new chip is more than just a faster alternative to Flash; its ability to move between different states of conductivity means it can be configured as a memristor, or a device that handles both data-processing and storage tasks. In the long term, researchers hope this technology can pave the way for silicon oxide CPUs — and UCL is already using this design to help develop transparent memory chips for mobile devices. Need to know more? Feast your heart on the gritty details via the link below.

Healthcare Is The Hottest Sector For Startup Funding

Source: https://intelligence.businessinsider.com/welcome


Business Insider Intelligence is a new research and analysis service for real-time insight and intelligence about the Internet industry. The product is currently in beta. For more information, and to sign up for a free 30-day trial, click here.

Healthcare took the largest percentage share of angel funding last year with 33.8 percent of funding dollars, according to a new report by Silicon Valley Bank. The internet, broadly defined, had the second largest share with 27.2 percent of funding dollars. However, as a percentage of deals completed, the Internet led with 33.8 percent followed by healthcare with 24.1 percent

There are several takeaways from the findings:

  • Many people (including some very influential investors) vew healthcare as a staid industry ripe for disruption;
  • Generally speaking, it costs more money to get a healthcare company off the ground than a web startup;
  • Early stage investors are very bullish: the median angel round was up 40 percent from 2010.

SanDisk makes 128-gigabit flash chip, crams three bits per cell, takes afternoon off

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2012/02/22/sandisk-makes-128-gigabit-flash-chip-crams-three-bits-per-cell/

SanDisk has developed a chip that earns it membership in the exclusive 128-gigabit club. Not content with simply matching the Micron / Intel effort, SanDisk and its partner Toshiba claim their new memory uses 19- rather than 20-nanometer cells in the production process. Shrinking the size is one thing, but SanDisk’s new chips also use its X3 / three-bit technology. Most memory stores just two bits per cell; cramming in another means fewer cells, less silicon, more savings, cheaper memory, happier geeks. Analyst Jim Handy estimates that the price per gigabyte for the tri-bit breed of flash could be as low as 28 cents, compared to 35 for the Micron / Intel equivalent. Full details in the not-so-compact press release after the break.

Redbox, Not Netflix, Is The Nation’s Largest DVD-Renter (NFLX, DISH, CSTR)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-redbox-not-netflix-is-the-nations-largest-dvd-renter-2012-1

From 2010 to 2011, Redbox’s percentage of the physical-disc rental market increased from 25% to 37%, according to market research firm NPD Group. (via Deadline)

Meanwhile, Netflix’s share stayed flat, despite the Qwikster debacle and Reed Hastings’ statement that DVD-by-mail subscribers will decrease steadily from here on out. Brick-and-mortar stores like Blockbuster lost 7%. And video on demand continues to increase in popularity, now accounting for 31% of all rentals.

How Much Tech Companies Are Spending On AdvertisingYahoo’s reportedly ponying up $85 million for an upcoming ad campaign—nearly twice as much as they spent on advertising in all of 2009. But as this chart shows, Yahoo’s wager looks puny next to Microsoft’s massive ad spending.

According to Kantar Media, who provided Silicon Alley Insider with numbers for total ad spending (print, online, radio, tv, and outdoor), Microsoft spent some $518 million on advertising last year, over twice as much as Apple did, with $249 million. And I’m not entirely sure they got their money’s worth—I’m having a hard time thinking of much recent Microsoft propaganda besides those “make a PC for under $1000″ commercials, which basically seemed like Best Buy spots anyway. Update: also, this.

Of these six companies, eBay spent the biggest chunk of their revenue on self-promotion, presumably trying to keep their name prominent even as they lose members to services like Craigslist. And equally interesting to how much money Microsoft and eBay spent is how little Google did. I guess life is good when you’re a verb. [SAI]
