From Register Hardware:Image

AMD has rolled out its first tri-core 'Toliman' Phenom processor that's overclocker friendly.

The clock-unlocked Black Edition Phenom X3 8750 comes with an out-of-the-box clock speed setting of 2.4GHz. Each core has 512KB of L2 cache to itself and access to a shared 2MB pool of L3 cache.

From Arstechnica:

Intel's pre-IDF briefing today offered a significant look at the chip giant's roadmap for 2008-2009, as well as some specific information on upcoming products that the company has previously kept quiet. Tukwila, Larrabee, Dunnington, and Nehalem were all topics of conversation as Intel laid out its 2008 strategy.

Fighting the black market: crypto-locks for CPUs, other ICs

The cost of first building and then updating fabrication facilities has forced a number of semiconductor companies that once owned their own foundries to pursue asset light fabless strategies. A fabless semiconductor company develops its own technology and chip designs, but pays a separate, dedicated fabrication facility, such as TSMC, UMC, or Chartered, to produce the chips. The fabless approach has saved integrated circuit (IC) design companies a great deal of money, but it has also enabled the rise of a thriving black market in counterfeit chips.

Nebojsa Novakovic at the Inquirer has taken a look at Intel's D5400XS "SkullTrail" motherboard, some beast!

From INQ:

AMD WAS the first to push the idea of dual-socket high-end PCs using optimised flavours of its workstation/server platforms, with the 4x4 QuadFather units late in 2006. An answer to Intel's quad-core rollout then, 4x4 - two times dual-core setup based on an Asus SLI mobo - was never seen much in public, with the limited units available only in selected markets, and even then hard to get. It did achieve stunning memory benchmarks out of its total four DDR2-800 channels, too.
