New features (updated)
Intel has published a Z390 chipset product brief on its website. The document unveils the features of the new chipset, which are very close to current Z370 series. Aside from the details that we have already posted during the last weeks, Intel includes more information about the High-Speed I/O lanes (HSIO).
From Intel and Micron
Intel and Micron have formed a partnership, with the production and shipment of the first 4bits/cell 3D NAND technology this week. These upcoming NAND chips use the proven 64-layer structure and they have achieved 1 terabit (Tb) density per die. In other words, this chips come with the highest density flash memory currently available.
Intel eight core CPU
With integrated FPGA
Intel announced that its first Xeon Scalable processor with integrated FPGA is finally available to select customers. The Xeon Scalable 6138P includes an Arria 10 GX 1150 FPGA on package that's connected to the CPU die via Intel's Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI). According to Intel, UPI offers a direct access to the processor or to main memory.
After barely one year
With different design compared to the previous gen
Almost one year ago, Intel has shown the Optane 900P SSDs which was limited to 480GB capacity. Now, almost one year later, the company has released a new version which feature a different design and it come in a new 960GB capacity. With the 905P, Intel has improved the design too adding a blue LED illumination.
Confirms also Cannon Lake support for Z390
The release notes for a version of Intel Rapid Storage Technology have leaked some interesting hints about some upcoming Intel desktop platforms. According to the image, Intel might release somewhen another HEDT platform. Furthermore the table confirms that Intel Z390 chipset will support Cannon Lake.
With Optane Memory inside
If you have opened Newegg today, you may have noticed some Intel "Core i+" products. This is a not a typo from the e-tailers, Intel has added the Core i5+ 8400, Core i5+ 8500, and Core i7+ 8700 CPUs. These models simply include a 16GB Optane Memory module in the box. With this SSD, you can cache the contents of a hard drive in order to achieve more performance.
According to Eurocom
Raja Koduri is behind the project
Last year we published a news about Raja Koduri, since the Radeon Technologies Boss was leaving AMD. Later in the same month it emerged that Koduri was Senior Vice President, Core and Visual Computing Group, General Manager, Edge Computing Solutions, Chief Architect at Intel. Now, according to NoteBookCheck, Koduri is working to redefine the Arctic Sound discrete GPU to be powerful enough for gaming.
A few months ago, Intel has released the Z370 chipset which is compatible with Coffee Lake processors. Intel was supposed to release the H370, B360 and H310 chipsets in the following months as well, however the company has slow down the entire process. During the last week we have published several news about the upcoming motherboards based on this chips and today Intel has officially unveils the mid-range chipsets.
