Intel with Breakthrough Processor Design
INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM, SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 28, 2001 - Intel Corporation today announced and demonstrated Hyper-Threading technology, a new processor design breakthrough, improving system performance by 30 percent. Intel's simultaneous multithreading design, originally code-named Jackson Technology, allows a single processor to manage data as if it were two processors by handling data instructions in parallel rather than one at a time. Using Hyper-Threading technology, data instructions are "threaded" as parallel streams for processing.

110GB notebook hard drives
August 24, 2001 (TOKYO) -- Fujitsu Laboratory Ltd. said it has developed a new magneto recording technology that realizes a hard disk drive recording density of 100Gb per square inch, or about 2.5cm by 2.5cm.

Use of this technology enables a 2.5-inch HDD in a notebook PC to have capacity of about 110GB. According to the firm, it has accomplished the "highest recording density in the world" through the technology.

Super computer to simulate nuclear tests
ASCI White, a $110 million computer squeezed into enough refrigerator-sized units to fill a couple of basketball courts, was officially unveiled by scientists aiming to simulate nuclear tests the government has promised not to carry out for real.

As previously reported IBM built the beast from off-the-shelf processors with a souped-up version of its commercial operating system, AIX. ASCI White weighs as much as 17 full-size elephants, takes as much cooling as 765 homes and can do in a second what would take a calculator 10 million years, IBM says.
