AMD to introduce 45nm process AM3 CPU family in 2H08

AMD to introduce 45nm process AM3 CPU family in 2H08 – AMD schedules to launch its 45nm process socket AM3 family processors in the second half of 2008. The processors will support HyperTransport 3.0 and will have a built-in DDR2/DDR3 memory controller. The processors will be backward compatible with the previous AM2 and AM2+ socket motherboards, according to sources at motherboard makers. AMD’s AM3 family will include the quad-core Deneb and DenebFX, dual-core Propus and Regor, and single-core Sargas. Shipments of 45nm products are predicted to surpass those of 65nm products within half a year from launch, noted the sources. Although Socket AM3 processors will be backwards compatible with previous socket AM2 and AM2+ motherboards, socket AM3 motherboards will not be able to support the previous socket AM2 and AM2+ processors. Therefore shipment volumes of socket AM3 motherboards will depend on the speed of transition to DDR3 memory, added the sources View: The full story News source: DigiTimes Read full story… [NeoWin-Main]

AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch

AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch -

Never again do I want to hear people complaining that they couldn’t find a summer job. Seems AT&T is so confident that people will show up for the iPhone in droves, it has taken the liberty of hiring an extra 2,000 employees to prepare for the madness. To make sense of how big the iPhone launch is going to be, here are some hot statistics:

  • 1,800 AT&T retail stores exist and will all be selling the iPhone
  • AT&T sales staff have received a total of 100,000 hours of training to sell the device, with each employee receiving about six hours of individual training
  • AT&T stores will close locally at 4:30 p.m. on that Friday to prepare for the launch, then reopen at 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. that night.

  • I’m going to be laughing all the way home if Apple and AT&T do all this training and preparation, only to find three dudes with fat wallets sitting outside a store on June 29. It’s almost here kids.

    More Than Half of Known Vista Bugs are Unpatched

    More Than Half of Known Vista Bugs are Unpatched - MsManhattan writes "Microsoft security executive Jeff Jones has disclosed that in the first six months of Vista's release, the company has patched fewer than half of the operating system's known bugs. Microsoft has fixed only 12 of 27 reported Vista vulnerabilities whereas it patched 36 of 39 known bugs in Windows XP in the first six months following its release. Jones says that's because "Windows Vista continues to show a trend of fewer total and fewer high-severity vulnerabilities at the six month mark compared to ... Windows XP," but he did not address the 15 unpatched flaws."

    PC World Reviews Apple OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

    PC World reviews the newest release of Apple's Max OSX version 10.5 codenamed "Leopard". In this review "Edward Mendelson" states one big remark.
    "First: despite minor problems, it's by far the best operating system ever written for the vast majority of consumers, with dozens of new features that have real practical value—like truly automated backups, preview images in folders, and notes and to-do lists integrated into the mail program".
    I have only played with Leopard in the last few days and seen it in action on a co-workers laptop, and I'm starting to thing more and more about purchasing a Macbook Pro! <!--brea--
