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.

Intel will fab ARM chips for LG on upcoming 10nm foundry node

Intel will fab ARM chips for LG on upcoming 10nm foundry node Now Intel announced that it would begin building 10nm hardware for companies that want to license standard ARM cores.According to ARM, this deal will cover future ARM products, dubbed ARM POP technology (POP is not an acronym).

Meet Kaby Lake: Intel unvers its new 7th generation CPUs

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.

Samsung may be in talks with AMD, Nvidia to license graphics IP

Samsung may be in talks with AMD, Nvidia to license graphics IP Last year, the company announced it would bring its first custom CPU core to market in 2016.Now, it’s reportedly in talks with both AMD and Nvidia, looking for a graphics core to match its custom CPU.

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.

New crowdfunding project promises an ATX motherboard for IBM’s Power8

New crowdfunding project promises an ATX motherboard for IBM’s Power8 A new crowdfunding project seeks to change that, with plans to build a completely open motherboard based around Power8.The hardware itself will support multiple Linux distros, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu.

Nvidia absolutely crushes its quarterly earnings, has its first $2 billion quarter

Nvidia absolutely crushes its quarterly earnings, has its first $2 billion quarter Other sources, like Quadro, grew a modest 9%, but nothing like the leap that gaming GPUs saw.Data center revenue grew by 59% as well, though this was much smaller in absolute terms ($230 million in data center sales, versus over $1 billion in gaming revenue).

Intel details Goldmont CPU architecture at the heart of Apollo Lake

Intel details Goldmont CPU architecture at the heart of Apollo Lake For the past few months, details on the Goldmont architecture (that’s the Atom microarchitecture refresh that replaced Silvermont this year) have been extraordinarily scarce and hard to come by.Three simple integer operations can be executed per cycle and address generation is now out-of-order in Goldmont (Silvermont generated and scheduled memory addresses in-order, but could complete them out-of-order.

AMD unveils Ryzen brand for Zen processors, base clocks, and additional performance details

AMD unveils Ryzen brand for Zen processors, base clocks, and additional performance details Last week in Sonoma, AMD unveiled new details on its upcoming CPU architecture, codenamed Zen.4GHz base clock.

Nintendo Switch's CPU, GPU clock speeds revealed

Nintendo Switch's CPU, GPU clock speeds revealed Last week, news leaked that Nintendo’s upcoming Switch wasn’t based on Pascal at all.But what’s truly surprising are the SoCs CPU and GPU clock speeds — if accurate, the Switch is going to be more handicapped than I thought.

Nvidia offering 'PC Gaming Revival' kits to make old hardware fresh again

Nvidia offering 'PC Gaming Revival' kits to make old hardware fresh again The company has unveiled what its calling a PC Gaming Revival Kit, and while the hardware is currently only being stocked in Spanish-speaking countries, we suspect this kind of bundle could come stateside relatively easily if Nvidia sees strong uptake.These sorts of hardware products used to be more common, particularly when CD-ROMs and multimedia capabilities started to debut in consumer hardware.

Could Nintendo's Switch pack 1080p or 1440p support after all?

Could Nintendo's Switch pack 1080p or 1440p support after all? His series of tweets is below: The USB-C over DisplayPort tweet implies that the Nintendo Switch is using USB-C’s Alternate Mode for DisplayPort support with a USB 3.Game developers might have the option to target 720p (native tablet resolution) or upscale a 540p output to 1080p.

New leaked benchmarks show AMD's Ryzen going toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7

New leaked benchmarks show AMD's Ryzen going toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7 4GHz base clock that AMD has promised for top-end Ryzen cores, so if we assume a modest boost clock of 3.6GHz it means final test results should be somewhat higher than what we see below.

Intel Core i7-7700K review: Kaby Lake debuts for desktop

Intel Core i7-7700K review: Kaby Lake debuts for desktop Today, Intel is taking the lid off its 7th Generation Core microprocessor family, codenamed Kaby Lake.It’s also the first Intel processor to support new Optane SSDs, provided the appropriate chipset is used (more on that later).
