Meet the new Xeon E7 v2, codenamed "Ivy Bridge EX". We've had the new processors in our labs for the past few weeks putting them to the test, using the latest Intel "Brickland" server platform that features support for up to 60 cores / 120 threads in one quad-socket server. Join us as we see what the platform can do in the IT segment.
The Next Unit of Computing (NUC) from Intel is becoming a part of the PC roadmap like never before. Anand reviewed the first generation of the NUC, the DC3217BY, featuring a dual core Ivy Bridge ULV CPU (Core i3 3217U, 17W TDP, 1.8 GHz, HD 4000). Show More Summary
Servers that support higher inlet temperatures could significantly reduce or even eliminate the cooling costs of the data center. We received the 2U supermicro 6027R-73DARF that supports the latest Xeon E5-2600 V2 (Ivy Bridge EP) processors. Show More Summary
There hasn’t been much talk about the Mac mini. The last time it was refreshed was back in October 2012, when it came with Intel Ivy Bridge processors and the option to upgrade RAM up to 16GB. Mac mini happens to be the only product in Apple’s Mac lineup that wasn’t updated in 2013. Show More Summary
