Haswell is the codename for a processor microarchitecture developed by Intel as the "fourth-generation core" successor to the Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. Intel announced CPUs based on this microarchitecture on June 4, 2013, at Computex Taipei 2013, while a working Haswell chip was demonstrated at the 2011 Intel Developer Forum. With Haswell, which uses a 22 nm process, Intel introduced low-power processors designed for convertible or "hybrid" ultrabooks, designated by the "Y" suffix. Haswell CPUs are used in conjunction with the Intel 8 Series chipsets, Intel 9 Series chipsets, Intel C220 series chipsets; the Haswell architecture is designed to optimize the power savings and performance benefits from the move to FinFET transistors on the improved 22 nm process node. Haswell has been launched in three major forms: Desktop version: Haswell-DT Mobile/Laptop version: Haswell-MB BGA version: 47 W and 57 W TDP classes: Haswell-H 13.5 W and 15 W TDP classes: Haswell-ULT 10 W TDP class: Haswell-ULX ULT = Ultra Low TDP.
All other models have GT1 integrated graphics. See Intel HD and Iris Graphics for more details. Due to the low power requirements of tablet and UltraBook platforms, Haswell-ULT and Haswell-ULX are only available in dual-core configurations. All other versions come as dual- or quad-core variants. Compared to Ivy Bridge: Approximately 8% faster vector processing Up to 5% faster single-threaded performance 6% faster multi-threaded performance Desktop variants of Haswell draw between 8% and 23% more power under load than Ivy Bridge. A 6% increase in sequential CPU performance Up to 20% performance increase over the integrated HD4000 GPU Total performance improvement on average is about 3% Around 15 °C hotter than Ivy Bridge, while clock frequencies of over 4.6 GHz are achievable 22 nm manufacturing process 3D Tri-Gate FinFET transistors Micro-operation cache capable of storing 1.5 K micro-operations 14- to 19-stage instruction pipeline, depending on the micro-operation cache hit or miss Mainstream variants are up to quad-core.
Native support for dual-channel DDR3/DDR3L memory, with up to 32 GB of RAM on LGA 1150 variants 64 KB L1 cache and 256 KB L2 cache per core A total of 16 PCI Express 3.0 lanes on LGA 1150 variants Wider core: fourth arithmetic logic unit, third address generation unit, second branch execution unit, deeper buffers, higher cache bandwidth, improved front-end and memory controller, higher load/store bandwidth. New instructions; the instruction decode queue, which holds instructions after they have been decoded, is no longer statically partitioned between the two threads that each core can service. New sockets and chipsets: LGA 1150 for desktops, rPGA947 and BGA1364 for the mobile market. Z97 and H97 chipsets for the Haswell Refresh and Broadwell, in Q2 2014. LGA 2011-v3 with X99 chipset for the enthusiast-class desktop platform Haswell-E. Intel Transactional Synchronization Extensions for the Haswell-EX variant. In August 2014 Intel announced that a bug exists in the TSX implementation on the current steppings of Haswell, Haswell-E, Haswell-EP and early Broadwell CPUs, which resulted in disabling the TSX feature on affected CPUs via a microcode update.
Hardware graphics support for Direct3D 11.1 and OpenGL 4.3. Intel 10.18.14.5057 driver is the last planned driver release on Windows 7/8.1. DDR4 for the enthusiast and enterprise/server segments and for the Enthusiast-Class Desktop Platform Haswell-E Variable Base clock like LGA 2011. Four versions of the integrated GPU: GT1, GT2, GT3 and GT3e, where GT3 version has 40 execution units. Haswell's predecessor, Ivy Bridge, has a maximum of 16 EUs. GT3e version with 40 EUs and on-package 128 MB of embedded DRAM, called Crystalwell, is available only in mobile H-SKUs and desktop R-SKUs; this eDRAM is a Level 4 cache. Optional support for Thunderbolt technology and Thunderbolt 2.0 Fully integrated voltage regulator, thereby moving some of the components from motherboard onto the CPU. New advanced power-saving system. 37, 47, 57 W thermal design power mobile processors. 35, 45, 65, 84, 88, 95 and 130–140 W TDP desktop processors. 15 W or 11.5W TDP processors for the Ultrabook platform leading to reduced heat, which results in thinner as well as lighter Ultrabooks, but the performance level is lower than the 17 W version.
Shrink of the Platform Controller Hub, from 65 nm to 32 nm. Haswell-EP variant, released in September 2014, with up to 18 cores and marketed as the Xeon E5-1600 v3 and Xeon E5-2600 v3 series. Haswell-EX variant, released in May 2015, with 18 cores and functioning T
San Bernardino Mountains
The San Bernardino Mountains are a high and rugged mountain range in Southern California in the United States. Situated north and northeast of San Bernardino and spanning two California counties, the range tops out at 11,489 feet at San Gorgonio Mountain – the tallest peak in all of Southern California; the San Bernardinos are popular for hiking and skiing. The mountains were formed about eleven million years ago by tectonic activity along the San Andreas Fault, are still rising. Many local rivers originate in the range, which receives more precipitation than the surrounding desert; the range's unique and varying environment allows it to maintain some of the greatest biodiversity in the state. For over 10,000 years, the San Bernardinos and their surroundings have been inhabited by indigenous peoples, who used the mountains as a summer hunting ground. Spanish explorers first encountered the San Bernardinos in the late 18th century, naming the eponymous San Bernardino Valley at its base. European settlement of the region progressed until 1860, when the mountains became the focus of the largest gold rush to occur in Southern California.
Waves of settlers brought in by the gold rush populated the lowlands around the San Bernardinos, began to tap the mountains' rich timber and water resources on a large scale by the late 19th century. Recreational development of the range began in the early 20th century, when mountain resorts were built around new irrigation reservoirs. Since the mountains have been extensively engineered for transportation and water supply purposes. Four major state highways and the California Aqueduct traverse the mountains today; the San Bernardinos run for 60 miles from Cajon Pass in the northwest – which separates them from the San Gabriel Mountains – to San Gorgonio Pass, across which lie the San Jacinto Mountains, in the southeast. The Morongo Valley in the southeast divides the range from the Little San Bernardino Mountains. Encompassing 2,100 square miles, the mountains lie in San Bernardino County, with a small southern portion reaching into Riverside County; the range divides three major physiographic regions: the urbanized Inland Empire to the southwest, the Coachella Valley in the southeast, the Mojave Desert to the north.
Most of the range lies within the boundaries of the San Bernardino National Forest. From its northwestern end, the crest of the mountains rises until they are interrupted by the gorge of Bear Creek; the northern part of the San Bernardinos is a large upland plateau characterized by a series of extensive subalpine basins, including Big Bear Valley, is home to several large water supply reservoirs. South of the Big Bear area the range is cut by the Santa Ana Canyon, the broad valley of the Santa Ana River, rises to culminate at Mount San Gorgonio and eleven other peaks that exceed 10,000 feet in elevation; the mountains feature a steep drop into the Coachella Valley and San Gorgonio Pass – the latter of, one of the deepest mountain passes in the United States, exceeding the Grand Canyon's depth by over 2,000 feet. Many cities lie at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains; these include San Bernardino and Yucaipa in the south. In addition, there are several mid-sized to large towns in the mountains themselves, including Big Bear Lake, Big Bear City, Lake Arrowhead and Running Springs.
Cities within the San Bernardino Mountains total a population of about 44,000, with this number sometimes increasing tenfold during peak tourist season. Several regional streams and rivers have their headwaters in the mountains; the principal drainage is provided by the Santa Ana River, which runs westwards into the Pacific Ocean in Orange County. Other streams flowing off the mountains include the Whitewater River, flowing southeast through the Coachella Valley into the Salton Sea, the Mojave River, which drains northwards into the Mojave Desert; the San Bernardino Mountains are a humid island in the semi-arid southern California coastal plain. Parts of the San Bernardino Mountains have annual precipitation totals in excess of 40 inches, provide an important water resource for the coastal plain below. Most of the precipitation falls between March. During the colder winter storms, snow can fall above 3,000 feet, but most falls above 5,000 feet. Ski resorts capitalize on the most reliable south of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The San Bernardinos are part of the Transverse Ranges of Southern California, a mountain chain formed by tectonic forces between the North American and Pacific Plates along the San Andreas Fault. An early version of the range rose in the Miocene, between eleven and five million years ago, but has eroded; the range was shaped into its present form during the Pleistocene epoch beginning two million years ago, with regional uplift continuing to the present. The rocks that make up the mountains are much more ancient than the mountains themselves – ranging from 18 million years to 1.7 billion years old. The San Andreas Fault was responsible for the formation of both major mountain passes that mark the east and west ends of the range; these mountains are shaped by several primary tectonic or fault blocks – the Big Bear block, which forms the large montane plateau that character
Devil's Canyon (1953 film)
Devil's Canyon is an American 1953 Western 3-D film directed by Alfred L. Werker; the film starrs Dale Robertson, Stephen McNally and Arthur Hunnicutt. Arizona, 1897: A female outlaw, Abby Nixon, warns a lawman, Billy Reynolds, that her accomplices Bud and Cole Gorman are nearby. Reynolds manages to kill both in a gunfight, but finds himself arrested for murder and sentenced to a desert prison known as Devil's Canyon. One of the prisoners there is a third Gorman brother, the ruthless Jesse, who intends to gain revenge for Reynolds having killed his kin. Jesse is romantically involved with Abby, but is unaware that she's the one who tipped off Reynolds as to his brothers' whereabouts. Reynolds is treated by Morgan, the warden, but not by Captain Wells, a sadistic guard. Abby ends up sent to Devil's Canyon herself for a robbery. To keep her as far as possible from the male inmates, Abby is assigned to work with Dr. Betts in the prison infirmary, she treats Reynolds' wounds. Abby plots a jailbreak.
Sneaking guns to Joe and Red, outlaw partners of Jesse, she tries to persuade Reynolds to join them. He refuses, respecting the law and not trusting Jesse a bit. Wells finds knives in Reynolds' cell, planted there by Jesse; the warden and Wells are tipped off about the breakout. Guards are taken hostage and the other prisoners are set free. Abby, now afraid of his violent ways, is slapped by him and left behind, she manages to free Reynolds, who takes over the guards' machine-gun nest, kills Jesse and orders the others back to their cells. The warden vows to do everything in his power to grant Abby a pardon for their crimes.
