Submission + - NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980 Ti Costs $350 Less Than TITAN X, Performs Similarly

Deathspawner writes: In advance of the rumored pending launch of AMD's next-generation Radeon graphics cards, NVIDIA has decided to pull no punches and release a seriously tempting GTX 980 Ti at $649. It's tempting both because the extra $150 it costs over the GTX 980 more than makes up for it in performance gained, and despite it coming really close to the performance of TITAN X, it costs $350 less. AMD's job might just have become a bit harder.

Submission + - Intel Updates vPro Chipsets, NIC and Features (hothardware.com)

MojoKid writes: "Intel's very recently announced updates to their vPro platform, for virtualization, security and management capabilities in the enterprise. In this effort, the company has certified the Core 2 Duo E6550, E6750 and E6850 processors for vPro, and is releasing the new low-power Q35 Express chipset with a companion ICH9-DO Southbridge, and 82566DM Gigabit Network controller. With these new chispets and technologies, the vPro platform offers next-generation Intel Active Management Technology, enhanced Intel Virtualization Technology, and Intel Trusted Execution Technology (aka Intel TXT). vPro also offers support for next-generation management standards like WS-MAN and DASH (draft 1.0 spec) and support for v1.2 of the Trusted Platform Module. Intel has plans to provide continual updates to the vPro platform and will likely enhance vPro further after the launch of their "Montevina" platform in the first half on 2008."

Submission + - Intel P35 Bearlake Chipset And DDR3 Memory Launch

Spinnerbait writes: "Intel is officially unleashing their newest mainstream desktop chipset today, the P35, a member of the formerly codenamed "Bearlake" family. In addition to a new ICH9 Southbridge, the P35 chipset ushers in support for DDR3 system memory for the desktop. It also supports legacy DDR2 memory, depending on the motherboard's DIMM slot configuration. HotHardware has a performance evaluation on a pair of P35-based motherboards from Asus with both DDR2 and DDR3 memory installed. As you'll note, thanks to some relatively high latencies currently, DDR3 doesn't affect performance all that much. It sure is great for overclocking though!"
