Intel Ships First-Ever 6-Watt Server-Class Processor

December 11th, 2012
Today, Intel introduced its new Atom processor S1200 product family. The announcement gives Intel bragging rights on delivering the world's first low-power, 64-bit server-class system-on-chip (SoC) for high-density microservers.

As public clouds continue to grow, Intel sees an opportunity to transform companies providing dedicated hosting, content delivery or front-end Web servers. Intel designed high-density servers based on low-power processors to meet that opportunity.

"We recognized several years ago the need for a new breed of high-density, energy-efficient servers and other data center equipment," said Diane Bryant, vice president and general manager of the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group at Intel. She added that the new processor offers key data center features, like reliability and manageability.

Under the SoC Hood

The Intel Atom SoC includes two physical cores and a total of four threads enabled with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology2. The SoC also includes 64-bit support, a memory controller supporting up to 8 GB of DDR3 memory, Intel Virtualization Technologies, eight lanes of PCI Express 2.0, Error-Correcting Code support for higher reliability, and other I/O interfaces integrated from Intel chipsets. The new product family will consist of three processors with frequency ranging from 1.6GHz to 2.0GHz.

The Intel Atom S1200 product family is also compatible with x86 software commonly used in data centers. Intel said this makes possible integration of the new low-powered equipment and avoids additional investments in porting and maintaining new software stacks.

"Organizations supporting hyperscale workloads need powerful servers to maximize efficiency and realize radical space, cost and energy savings," said Paul Santeler, vice president and general manager, Hyperscale Business Unit, Industry-Standard Servers and Software at Hewlett-Packard. "HP servers power many of those organizations, and the Intel Atom processor S1200 will be instrumental as we develop the next wave of application-defined computing to dramatically reduce cost and energy use for our customers."

Toyota Looks to Magnesium-Ion Batteries for Longer Electric Vehicle Range

December 4th, 2012

Battery technology is one of the biggest factors that is holding back the electric vehicle revolution. Many electric vehicles max out at a range of 80-100 miles, which discourages potential buyers. Toyota is now looking into new magnesium-ion batteries, which would provide a longer driving range than lithium-ion batteries and could finally give the ev market the boost that it needs.

Last month researchers at the Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA) in Michigan published a paper in the journal Chemical Communications that describes Toyota’s experiments with a magnesium-ion battery. Magnesium-ion batteries use the same electrolytes as lithium-ion batteries, but their anode is made of tin. The new magnesium-ion batteries are also more energy dense because they have a positive charge of two, unlike one for lithium-ion batteries. In addition, lithium-ion batteries are expensive, but since magnesium is abundant, the new batteries would be cheaper to produce.

The lead author of the paper, Nikhilendra Singh was very positive about the initial results. “The potential is definitely there,” Singh says. “There are some improvements we need to make to its performance, which we’ve addressed in the paper as well. But overall, we’re very excited.”

It’s not known when the new batteries would show up in an electric car, but Takashi Kuzuya, the general manager at TRINA feels that they would show up in consumer electronics first. According to Venkat Srinivasan, researcher and manager at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory’s Batteries for Advanced Transportation Technologies program, the commercialization of magnesium batteries is more than 10 years away. “Once you have a breakthrough, meaning you have an anode, a cathode, and electrolyte, it takes maybe five years to reach the commercialization stage, and we don’t have all that with magnesium, so it’s going to take a while,” he says.
