New programmable microcontroller runs on radio waves, can be reprogrammed in the field

New programmable microcontroller runs on radio waves, can be reprogrammed in the field A new research initiative between a University of Washington team and TU-Delft in the Netherlands has created a microprocessor that can power itself through stray radio waves and receive programmable updates in the same fashion.This has significant implications for Internet of Things development and for ambient computing as a whole.

Nvidia drops most support for three and four-way SLI

While the absolute die-hard, well-funded enthusiasts may be disappointed by this move, the fact is, it makes a great deal of sense.The problems with multi-GPU development and driver development in general were explored very well in a post to GameDev.

Moore’s law scaling dead by 2021, to be replaced by 3D integration

Moore’s law scaling dead by 2021, to be replaced by 3D integration Much of the ITRS’ recently released executive report focuses on the way the meaning of Moore’s law has changed over the years.We discussed this back in 2015 when we noted the need for a Moore’s law 3.

Using hardware queues to break the multi-core CPU bottleneck

Using hardware queues to break the multi-core CPU bottleneck Each CPU will have its own L2 cache, where data related to the problem is stored.In a coherent cache, CPU 0 completes part of its calculations, writes a new value to a block of memory, and then communicates that it has done so.
