Intel's next must-have upgrade: a look at Sandy Bridge

Intel's current generation of Westmere parts marks the end of one era and the start of another. On the one hand, Westmere kicks off the 32nm process node, which is more important than normal because it marks the point at which you can make an x86 system on a chip (SoC) for every segment, from embedded up to servers. But Westmere marks the end of the P6 era—the architecture that has powered Intel's most successful processors since its debut with the Pentium Pro makes its curtain call with Westmere. In its place is a brand-new architecture, which Intel has codenamed Sandy Bridge.

Panasonic is first with consumer 3D camcorder

From TrustedReviews:

Like every other area of technology, video is developing at an increasing pace. Digital camcorders arrived around 15 years ago, high definition only five years ago, and now video is acquiring a third dimension as well. Our first taste of consumer 3D videography came from an unexpected direction in the shape of the Aiptek 3D i2. But now we have a higher-end, more mainstream option from Panasonic: the HDC-SDT750.

From Daily Tech

Chipmaker delivers a 100 MHz bump to almost all of its lineup, its third refresh of the year for some models

Today Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., the world's second largest microprocessor maker, unveiled six new CPUs to hold off Intel while it prepares its next-generation architecture.

First, let's get a quick primer on AMD's CPU brand strategy, which can be a bit confusing.  AMD makes two major lines of CPUs -- a high end line dubbed Phenom II, and a budget lined dubbed Athlon II.  Athlon IIs lack L3 cache and typically feature slightly lower clock speeds.  Also, only Phenom II has a subfamily of hexa-core (6-core) CPUs, code-named "Thuban" -- Athlon II is only available in two-, three-, and four-core variants.  Both processors are built on a 45 nm SOI with immersion lithography process.

From TrustedReviews:

The VSX-520 is one of three 5.1-channel receivers at the lower end of Pioneer’s current range, sandwiched between the cheaper VSX-420 and higher-specced VSX-820. Naturally, the VSX-520 adds a few extra features not found on the VSX-420, chief among which is the ability to pass through 3D signals thanks to its HDMI v1.4 sockets.
