Google may develop custom silicon for future Pixel products, alienating Samsung and other Android vendors

Google may develop custom silicon for future Pixel products, alienating Samsung and other Android vendors But the $649 and $769 price points for the Pixel (5-inch screen) and Pixel XL (5.The company has reportedly poured significant resources into building a hardware design team.

Intel launches Stratix 10: Altera FPGA combined with ARM CPU, 14nm manufacturing

Intel launches Stratix 10: Altera FPGA combined with ARM CPU, 14nm manufacturing When Intel bought Altera last year, there was speculation on how we’d see future FPGA products fit within Intel’s existing product lines.The new Stratix 10 family does contain a microprocessor — but it’s an ARM-based design, not an Intel chip.

Imagination’s I6500 CPU adds heterogeneous compute, multi-clustering, will power self-driving cars

Imagination’s I6500 CPU adds heterogeneous compute, multi-clustering, will power self-driving cars It’s been nearly four years since Imagination Technologies acquired MIPS Technologies, the developers of the MIPS architecture.The I6500 could change that, and the core has already been tapped to drive the future (pun-intended) of self-driving car technology.

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect The entire computing industry has a memory problem, and a new consortium of industry partners, dubbed Gen-Z, hopes to solve it.What’s needed is a new memory interface that can tie these various components together, and that’s where Gen-Z comes in.

Qualcomm announces the Snapdragon 835 and fully spec-compliant Quick Charge 4

Qualcomm announces the Snapdragon 835 and fully spec-compliant Quick Charge 4 Features like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge mean you can get a substantial power boost with just a little time on the charger.Past versions of Qualcomm Quick Charge have been based on its own standard, which is somewhat at odds with the USB specification.

x86 emulation may finally come to ARM processors running Windows 10

x86 emulation may finally come to ARM processors running Windows 10 Ever since Microsoft released the Surface RT, people have wondered whether the company would build an x86 emulator to allow ARM chips to run x86 Win32 applications.Decades of legacy x86 support had made Windows and x86 synonymous in many people’s minds, and a Windows tablet that couldn’t actually run what people thought of as “Windows” software wasn’t terribly useful.

New teardown reveals Surface Studio packs ARM CPU core, upgradable storage

New teardown reveals Surface Studio packs ARM CPU core, upgradable storage iFixit’s recent teardown of the Surface Studio found some expected downsides, but a few intriguing details and user-friendly options as well.The cooling solution appears quite robust — Microsoft is using a multi-heatpipe system with dual fans, one for the CPU and one for the GPU.

Microsoft announces Windows-on-ARM partnership with Qualcomm, but done right this time

Microsoft announces Windows-on-ARM partnership with Qualcomm, but done right this time This week, Microsoft announced a new initiative with Qualcomm aimed at bringing full 32-bit Win32 compatibility to ARM devices running Windows 10 in 2017.Once Windows RT actually hit shelves, however, analyst goodwill vanished.

Qualcomm begins sampling its 48-core 10nm processor, but is the market ready for ARM-based servers?

Qualcomm begins sampling its 48-core 10nm processor, but is the market ready for ARM-based servers? The new chip family is the Qualcomm Centriq 2400 with up to 48 cores, all based on the Qualcomm Falkor CPU.“The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 series processors will drive high performance, power efficient ARM-based servers from concept to reality,” said Anand Chandrasekher, senior vice president and general manager, Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies, Inc.

Apple 'fixed' the MacBook Pro's battery life issue by removing the 'time remaining' clock

Apple 'fixed' the MacBook Pro's battery life issue by removing the 'time remaining' clock You’ll still get a report on the percentage of battery life remaining, but nothing else.The battery life issue remains puzzling, however, despite Apple’s apparent lack of interest in investigating the topic.

Tim Sweeney is positively steam-ed about Microsoft's Windows Cloud operating system Yesterday, we reported on Windows Cloud — a new version of Microsoft’s Windows 10 that’s supposedly in the works.Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic and lead developer on the Unreal Engine, has been a harsh critic of Microsoft and its Windows Store before.

Apple may integrate new custom ARM cores into future Macs, but an x86 swap is still unlikely

Apple may integrate new custom ARM cores into future Macs, but an x86 swap is still unlikely Offloading OS functions to an ARM CPU in low power mode would intertwine x86 and ARM cores together in the same system much more tightly than is currently the case.Instead of reprogramming Apple Pay and Touch ID for macOS, Apple put an ARM core running watchOS in the MacBook Pro.

Groundbreaking new prosthetic translates spinal cord signals into movement

Groundbreaking new prosthetic translates spinal cord signals into movement Scientists at Imperial College London have developed smart sensor technology that allows a robot arm to be controlled via signals from nerves in the spinal cord.In order to use the prosthesis, wearers think of actions, which are then interpreted as commands courtesy of electrical signals sent from the spinal motor neurons.
