The community is buzzing today around a JavaScript test showing the upcoming MeeGo Handset user experience gut-checking competitive OS solutions. The benchmarks used the latest Firefox browser on all-Intel solution, including the prototype "Moorestown" Aava smart phone and code for the upcoming MeeGo Handset release. The Aava smart phone ran the test in 4,215ms, or about 2 seconds, while competing smart phone solutions took up to 10 seconds. Although the phone and OS are not yet available, developers can check out the MeeGo website for updates as the project move towards the MeeGo v1.1 final release, scheduled for this October.

Today's microprocessors need to compute more data than ever before, while maintaining a low power state for energy and battery life savings. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is one of the most compute-intensive block ciphers for media content protection and data encryption on high-performance tera-scale microprocessor platforms. The exponential increase in data rates of real-time media processing and computational complexities of mapping modular Galois-field (GF) arithmetic and arbitrary permutations onto general-purpose microprocessors create substantial power and performance bottlenecks within the CPU core. Recently, at Research@Intel Day, in Mountain View, California, Intel Researchers demonstrated an energy-efficient reconfigurable special-purpose hardware accelerator targeted for on-die real-time encryption/decryption of media content in 45nm high-K/Metal-gate CMOS technology. The prototype chip showcases novel high-performance reconfigurable arithmetic logic and data-path circuits that are capable of performing the most commonly employed AES-128, AES-192 and AES-256 encryption and decryption standards at industry-leading throughputs up to 53Gbps while consuming only 125mW. Near-threshold voltage optimized circuits utilized on this chip enable the encryption/decryption performance to scale over a wide operating voltage range from 1.1V down to 320mV. An all-digital variation-tolerant true random number generator design targeted for secure encryption key generation is also demonstrated functioning at 2.4Gbps.

Microsoft recently published the results of a six-month total cost of ownership study of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). The study concludes that VDI delivers value for specialized user segments such as contractors. However for offices workers in a VDI environment, the total cost of ownership was higher by 11% per user than that of a well-managed PC environment. Additionally, many workers will find the VDI user experience unsatisfactory. Microsoft recommends that organizations assess their use cases and drivers for VDI to ensure the best computing option for their users.
