AMD may delay next-gen Vega, confirms Zen on track for Q1 2017

AMD may delay next-gen Vega, confirms Zen on track for Q1 2017 Polaris would arrive in mid-2016, while Vega, the company’s big GPU follow-up, would slip in at the end of the year.If Vega has really been pushed back to May or June, it’s a serious blow to AMD’s graphics strategy.

The great GPU bait-and-switch of summer 2016: AMD, Nvidia official MSRPs don’t reflect real-world prices

The great GPU bait-and-switch of summer 2016: AMD, Nvidia official MSRPs don’t reflect real-world prices More than three months after Nvidia officially kicked off the 14nm refresh cycle, GPU prices still running hot.The RX 470 is supposed to sell for $179; the least expensive RX 470 we found was $199, which is where the RX 480 4GB is supposed to sit.

The iPhone 7’s new A10 Fusion: quad-core, high-efficiency, and a more powerful GPU

The iPhone 7’s new A10 Fusion: quad-core, high-efficiency, and a more powerful GPU What we do know is that the new A10 is a quad-core, 3.3-billion transistor CPU (the A9 CPU contained more than two billion transistors) with an estimated 40% performance advantage over A9 (according to Apple).

Sony announces new Slim PS4, will bring HDR lighting to all platforms with software update

Sony announces new Slim PS4, will bring HDR lighting to all platforms with software update The big news at Sony’s PlayStation unveil was the PS4 Pro, but it’s not the only new console coming to market.It’s mostly been touted as a 4K feature, but the PS4 lacks a UHD Blu-ray player and Sony only mentioned 4K streaming support for the PS4 Pro, not the PS4.

GlobalFoundries announces new 7nm FinFET process, full node shrink

GlobalFoundries announces new 7nm FinFET process, full node shrink Even more interesting is the fact that the company intends to execute a full node shrink at 7nm, rather than using a hybrid node.A quick word on “full node” versus “hybrid node.

Apple A10 teardown sheds light on quad-core SoC, confirms Intel won modem contract

Apple A10 teardown sheds light on quad-core SoC, confirms Intel won modem contract Every time a new Apple device ships, it’s interesting to see how manufacturing technology has advanced.The Verizon and Sprint products (A1660 and A1661) use a Qualcomm modem.

Samsung’s 10nm node, SoCs now in mass production

Samsung’s 10nm node, SoCs now in mass production According to Samsung, its 10nm LPE (Low Power Early) process node will offer “up to 30-percent increase in area efficiency with 27-percent higher performance or 40-percent lower power consumption.” Or this, from the company’s page on its 32nm process node.

Nintendo patent filings suggest the Switch could be hiding some significant features

Nintendo patent filings suggest the Switch could be hiding some significant features Polygon has written an in-depth description of the capabilities of Nintendo’s Switch as described in various patent filings.Patent filings don’t necessarily guarantee certain capabilities will come to the Switch.

AMD reveals new Radeon GPU architecture, codenamed Vega

AMD reveals new Radeon GPU architecture, codenamed Vega These entry-level to midrange cards would be followed by a full high-end refresh based on a new GPU design, codenamed Vega.One of the most common misconceptions about GPU RAM allocation and the popular freeware utility GPU-Z is that GPU-Z is capable of telling you how much RAM the GPU is actually using.

Samsung's foundry business, upcoming 10nm designs offsets its catastrophic Note 7 losses

Samsung's foundry business, upcoming 10nm designs offsets its catastrophic Note 7 losses That’s mostly thanks to its semiconductor business, which has grown substantially over the past two years.That’s a 28% gain over FY2014, when the company booked just $34 billion in yearly semiconductor revenue, and it reflects Samsung’s strong design wins in 14nm products.

Report: Intel's 8th gen chips will still use 14nm, will arrive earlier than expected

Report: Intel's 8th gen chips will still use 14nm, will arrive earlier than expected Now, new information suggests Intel may have a product plan that tears up PAO (or at least complicates it) going forward.Analyst Ashraf Eassa claims to have confirmed with Intel that upcoming 8th generation Core processors will use an updated/enhanced variant of 14nm technology yet again — call it 14nm++.

Rumor: Nvidia's Volta to be built on TSMC's 'new' 12nm process

Rumor: Nvidia's Volta to be built on TSMC's 'new' 12nm process Details on the chip are scarce, though Nvidia has previously given guidance that Volta would be its first HBM2 product and would feature a stacked memory architecture.Now, rumors are flying that the chip will actually be built on TSMC’s “new” 12nm node.

Intel claims three-year advantage on 10nm, wants to redefine process nodes

Intel claims three-year advantage on 10nm, wants to redefine process nodes It also laid out what it believes is a better metric for calculating process nodes in the future, though we suspect TSMC, Samsung, and GloFo may all disagree.At 10nm, Intel is moving the contact to directly under the gate, which frees up additional transistor space.
