Intel's Upcoming Core i7 Mobile CPU to Top Out at $1096

By the start of Q4 2011, Intel is expected to release a new series of high-performance mobile Core i7 processors with frequencies as high as 2.7GHz, which are expected to top out at $1096.

These will be the fastest standard voltage mobile Core i7 processors to be based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, as future parts will use the 22nm Ivy Bridge core.

The most powerful CPU to be unveiled is the Core i7-2960XM Extreme Edition. Just like its predecessor, this will include four computing cores with Hyper-Threading support and 8MB of L3 cache, all packed inside a 55W thermal envelope.

However, the base clock speed of the chip will be raised from 2.5GHz to 2.7GHz, while the maximum Turbo Boost frequency will also receive a 200MHz speed bump to reach 3.7GHz.

Right below this processor will come the Core i7-2860QM that has the same 2.5GHz base operating speed as the current Core i7-2920XM, but features a 45W TDP and a 100MHz higher max Turbo frequency.

Next in line is the Core i7-2760QM that is destined to replace the 2720QM. Both of these CPUs feature a quad-core design and 6MB of Level 3 cache memory, but the upcoming chip improves the clock speeds of its predecessor by 200MHz.

Finally, the last Intel mobile SKU to be replaced is the Core i7-2620M, which will surrender its place to the 2640M.

This is the only upcoming Core i7 processor to include only two cores and 4MB of L3 cache, but it also features a smaller 35W TDP.

According to CPU-World, these processors are expected to be released in the second week of September (September 4 to September 10), and prices will range from $346 for the Core i7-2640M to $1096 for the 2960XM.

The two other quad-core chips, the Core i7-2760QM and 2860QM, will carry a MSRP of $378 and $568, respectively.

Startup Delayer 3.0 Build 314

Allows you to configure timed delays for each application that starts after Windows boots up.

Startup Delayer gives you the power to optimize your Startup Process by delaying applications from starting up as soon as you log into your computer.

You computer becomes usable much faster by delaying your startup applications.Startup Delayer will then start launching your delayed applications when your computer is more idle.

Does it take quite some time till your computer is ready to use? Do you find your computer is really unresponsive even though you can already see the Desktop? Do you want more control over what starts on your computer?

When Windows loads it's startup file, it attempts to load every program in there at the same time. Therefore if you have quite a lot of programs starting when Windows starts, each program will try and grab CPU and Disk time so that it can load.

If each program tries to do this at the same time, you soon notice the slow down that occurs due to your CPU trying to help all the programs to load, and your hard disk accessing multiple files.

Startup Delayer allows you add some order to this process by determining the best time to launch your Applications. You can choose to do this based on how idle your computer is, or you can set an arbitrary time.

Note: If you require all the advanced features you can buy the Premium version.  

Here are some key features of "Startup Delayer":
  • Delay applications at startup at a specific time
  • Configure Run type (normal, minimized, maximized)
  • Pause the startup till an application has terminated
  • Drag and Drop organization
  • Automatically launches applications based on computer idleness
  • Delay local user applications without administrator rights
  • Modify any local user from the one user account
  • Windows 7, UAC, 64bit and Digital Signature Aware
  • Multi-select and manipulate applications
  • Associate User Notes with any startup application
  • View Performance Graph of last startup
  • Quick Filter and built in filters to easily locate Applications
  • Easily search the internet for more information on an application
  • Advanced Wait options allowing for User confirmation, Application termination or Application initialization
  • Ignore Launching an application if its already running
  • Undelete previously deleted applications
  • View and manipulate Running Tasks
  • View and manipulate Services
  • Configure an application to run with highest privileges
  • Automatically remove duplicate entries added by applications
  • Modify the Priority of an application at launch
  • View the running status of a startup application
What's New in This Release:
  • Build 314 includes a number of fixes including the reported inability to move Common items without being continuously prompted about Admin rights.

Windows 7 / 8 vs. OS X vs. Linux vs. Chrome OS – A Numbers Game

It looks like Windows 8 won’t have much of a competition from rival operating systems, both traditional and emerging OSes, since the Windows platform is expected to continue its dominance through this year, and most probably the next few years as well. 

Gartner is forecasting that Microsoft will sell approximately 635 million new Windows 7 PCs worldwide since Windows Vista’s successor was launched. 

This year alone, Windows 7 will be featured on no less than 94% of new computers and will climb to an operating system market share of 42%, dethroning Windows XP as the top OS worldwide. 

In mid-September 2011 the software giant is expected to deliver the first deep dive into Windows 8, and even to share an early development milestone, or perhaps even the Beta, with early adopters for testing. 

Windows 8 will be launched in 2012, and with Windows 7 becoming the top dog on the OS market, is hard to believe that rival platforms will be able to make sufficient inroads in Windows territory to actually matter. 

For example, Gartner expects only 5.2% of all computer shipments in 2015 to be Apple Macs, up from 4.5% in 2011, and 4% in 2010.

"The adoption of Mac PCs and Mac OS is a result of Apple's ability to grow well above the market average in the last 12 to 24 months, thanks to its ease of use from the user interface (UI) point of view and ease of integration with other Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and the existing Apple ecosystem of applications and programs," said Annette Jump, research director at Gartner.

The open source Linux operating system will most likely be affected by a continued stagnation as far as market share evolution is concerned, Gartner opined. 

“Linux OS is expected to remain niche over the next five years with its share below 2 percent because of the remaining high costs of application migration from Windows to Linux. In the consumer market, Linux will be run on less than 1 percent of PCs, as Linux's success with mini-notebooks was short-lived and few mini-notebooks are preloaded with it today,” the company said. 

In addition, it also appears that new operating systems such as those from Google, Chrome OS and Android, or HP’s webOS, are not likely to win over territory from Windows on PCs in the next few years. 

“Gartner does not expect Chrome OS, Android or webOS to get any significant market share on PCs in the next few years. Analysts believe that to get any consideration as an alternative for a traditional PC, lighter OSs will first need to get strong positions on emerging client devices such as Web books and media tablets,” the company added. 

“Even then, it is unlikely that they will have any impact on Microsoft and Windows OS's hold on positions on traditional professional PCs in the time frame of the current forecast. This is because of application compatibility issues and the high proportion of Windows-specific applications within many enterprises.”
