ARM announces new Cortex-A73 CPU, Mali G71 GPU

ARM announces new Cortex-A73 CPU, Mali G71 GPU The Mali-G71 is based on ARM’s Bifrost GPU architecture (the company’s previous products were built on the Midgard GPU architecture).Bifrost is designed to be the most scalable Mali design ARM has built to date, as well as implementing full coherency.

Leaked slides imply Intel Goldmont offers 30% better CPU performance, increased battery life

Leaked slides imply Intel Goldmont offers 30% better CPU performance, increased battery life Apollo Lake is built on Intel’s next-generation Goldmont CPU architecture with Skylake-derived graphics, and will debut on a 14nm process.The gap between Silvermont and Goldmont won’t be nearly as large as the difference between Clover Trail and Silvermont, but there’s a simple explanation for that.

Meet the Megaprocessor: A 20KHz behemoth CPU you can actually see in action

Meet the Megaprocessor: A 20KHz behemoth CPU you can actually see in action The Megaprocessor is a 16-bit design with four general-purpose registers, a program counter, a processor status register, and a stack pointer.The CPU’s transistor count comes out to 15,300, but much of this is also devoted to the LEDs.

AMD reports a strong second quarter on increased console sales, preps Zen for 2017 The total value of that deal was $351 million; AMD has recognized the revenue over multiple quarters.She did, however, say that “We remain on track for volume shipments of our “Zen” server CPU in the first half of 2017.

Report: Apple planning major MacBook Pro refresh with AMD Polaris GPUs, Touch ID, and OLED function keys

Report: Apple planning major MacBook Pro refresh with AMD Polaris GPUs, Touch ID, and OLED function keys A new report from Bloomberg claims that Apple will refresh its entire MacBook Pro line this fall, with a new design and a number of new features.Some systems will reportedly offer GPUs based on AMD’s Polaris architecture, while the lower-cost models will use Intel’s integrated graphics.

Phase change memory can operate thousands of times faster than current RAM

Phase change memory can operate thousands of times faster than current RAM Conventional DRAM operates at nanosecond timescales, which means phase change memory could theoretically be thousands of times faster than conventional RAM.In theory, phase change memory could eventually present a solution to the so-called memory wall, or memory gap.

Meet Kaby Lake: Intel unvers its new 7th generation CPUs Still salivating, we've now got the good oil on the rest of their range, codenamed Kaby Lake.Either way, they're sticking to a 14nm fabrication process for Kaby Lake.

Intel announces new Kaby Lake: Built on 14nm+, with improved video decode and better top-end frequencies

Intel announces new Kaby Lake: Built on 14nm+, with improved video decode and better top-end frequencies Today, Intel announced its upcoming Kaby Lake hardware refresh.Then again, Anandtech is reporting that 4K Netflix support, when it eventually comes to PCs, may only be available to Kaby Lake owners.

Intel launches new Apollo Lake silicon, but new Goldmont CPU architecture may draw significantly more power

Intel launches new Apollo Lake silicon, but new Goldmont CPU architecture may draw significantly more power Earlier this year, Intel announced that its next-generation Atom architecture, Goldmont, would be confined to netbooks and the low-end of the desktop market.We still don’t know what Intel changed or how Goldmont differs from Airmont — but this plays into the TDP considerations we mentioned above.
