Wake up and
smell the murder.

Probably never. Intel is very bad about actually bringing enterprise ssd's to market, and demand for the P3600 and P3700 is phenomenal.

KHAAAAAAN!

I really, really want those drat drives when I refresh our server offerings. Unless anyone else can think of a good PCIe SSD for write-heavy(ish) loads <$1.50/GB.

My name is a killing word.


I seem to remember Intel teasing a feature where they could basically sleep a computer, and then have it instantly wake up to (say) respond to an attempted connection. This was different from a typical Wake on Lan.

Anyone remember what I'm talking about? Is that feature in any of the NUC PCs?

Connected Standby?

Not quite but this let me dig up what I was talking about.

quote:

Ready Mode essentially allows a 4th Gen Core processor (and presumably newer chips, which are slated to arrive later in the year), to enter a low C7 power state, while the OS and other system components remain connected and ready for action. Intel demoed the technology, and along with compatible third party applications and utilities, showed how Ready Mode can allow a mobile device to automatically sync to a PC to download and store photos. The PC could also remain in a low power state and stream media, server up files remotely, or receive VOIP calls. Ready Mode will be supported by a number of Intelís system partners in a variety of all-in-one type systems a little later in the year.

More or less the same concept, but aimed at the desktop market instead of Atom processors and Metro apps.

I want this on a NUC or something similar as a low-power server. Doesn't look like it's available yet, though.

No, seriously... what kurds?!

C7 is disabled by default, because most PSUs except the most recent ones don't support it.

If you're having problems you're either holding the phone wrong or you have tiny girl hands.


Does HDMI 2.0 support just require a board redesign or does it require cpu support as well? Is it possible we could get some haswell boards with hdmi 2?

It requires a board redesign because of the huge clock speed increase, to 600 MHz from 340(?) MHz. Haswell and Broadwell support HDMI 1.4, not 2.0, and that's that.
