At the upcoming Hot Chips Conference in late August, Oracle, IBM and Fujitsu are all set to announce the release of new high-performance Unix chips.
Will Intel and Nvidia join the HSA party, or insist on going it alone?Hot Chips At the annual Hot Chips symposium on high-performance chippery on Sunday, the assembled chipheads were led through a four-hour deep dive into the latest developments on marrying the power of CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, DMA engines, codecs, and other accelerators through the development of an open source progr
Intel announced today their new Silvermont microarchitecture, a new design for 22nm Tri-Gate SoC chips. The architecture will offer three times the performance of current generation Atom processors while using five times less power. The new chips may help Intel get their chips into top-tier phones that seem to be dominated by Qualcomm chips.
ARM will today announce a new operating system called mbed OS: it seeks to smooth over all the differences between various competing system-on-chips so that high-level applications can talk to sensors and gizmos whether they're using silicon from Atmel, Marvell, ST, Freescale, NXP, and so on.
I know these chips have slightly looser timings than the old Micron D9 DDR2 Ballistix sticks (5-5-5-5 versus 4-4-4) but does anyone know if these chips are actually from Micron or is Crucial just rebranding Samsung / Hynix / Elpeda chips for this series?
Flashrom is the leading way for flashing BIOS/firmware images on hundreds of flash chips, hundreds of motherboards, and dozens of PCI devices. Released today was Flashrom 0.9.7 as the first major update in one year's time and with it comes almost 150 changes to the open-source BIOS/firmware flashing project...
AMD announced the upcoming release of its new mobile processors, Carrizo and Carrizo-L this week. The chips will ship in quad-core and dual-core versions, supporting DDR3 and DDR4 and will be available sometime in 2015.
Carrizo will be our APU that's targeting right at the heart of performance mobile and all-in-one for 2015.
