AMD reveals 45nm Shanghai
AMD engineers this week said that the company plans on introducing new 12-core processors later this year. The first processors based on 45nm Shanghai platform are due later this year and will be nearly identical to the B3 variant of the Socket 1207 Opteron (Barcelona) shipping today, according to DailyTech. The processors will reportedly use the faster HyperTransport 3.0 for inter-CPU communication and will debut later this year as a "native six-core" Shanghai derivative, currently code-named Istanbul. That processor, the report claims, is "clearly targeted at Intel's recently announced six-core, 45nm Dunnington processor." A few months later, Shanghai and its derivatives will also get twin-die per package treatment, allowing for up to 12-cores per package, the report says.
Powerline Network Adapter
MacWireless.com has announced its new ultra-fast Powerline Network Adapter 200Mbps for Macs. Powerline networking allows users to route a network through the electrical lines that are already built into any home or office. Offering speeds up to 200Mbps, users can easily install an Ethernet network to other floors or rooms in the building without the need to run wires. The devices convert data from any computer into a signal that can be transmitted over standard AC wires. According to the company, the signal does not interfere with the ordinary current traveling through the wires and up to 16 devices can be used on a single network (up to 980 feet of electrical wire). The adapters, which do not require drivers, support Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X, and Windows.

The company will ship both a Windows XP version with 12GB of storage and a version using the original Linux OS with 20GB of storage. Variants should also be available in black or white.
