San Diego born and raised
Samsung's Exynos 7240 is a little miracle, and being the first mobile 14nm SoC in the market has its own benefits.
No one expected such good yields
We found out one rather interesting story at the Mobile World Congress and it sheds more light on Samsung's decision to use Exynos SoCs for most markets instead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810.
64-bit, big.LITTLE Cortex-A57 at 2.1GGHz, A53 at 1.5GHz
Samsung had a rather short press conference, not talking that much about what is inside its new flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones, at least not in terms of silicon.
With custom 64-bit CPU core
While some of the first devices based on the Snapdragon 810 are about to hit the global market, Qualcomm has decided to unveil some the first details regarding its next big thing at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, the Snapdragon 820 SoC.
64-bit 14nm Exynos with 5.1-inch 577ppi screen
Samsung has just officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge phones. Both phones share the same DNA and the only difference is that the S6 Edge has a dual-side curved screen.
In the US it starts at $799
Back at CES, we had a chance to see and feel the Dell XPS 13 notebook, which is the smallest 13-incher that we have seen so far.
Shuttle DS57U is a passive one-litre PC
Shuttle made a name for itself making small form-factor computers and the company has now released a Broadwell 14nm based successor to its DS47 and DS437 models.
For now, not sure after 7nm
Intel expects Moore’s Law will be around for a few more years, but after the semi industry hits 7nm, things could get a little complicated.
Qualcomm in trouble
Recently Samsung announced that serial production of its new 14nm SoC has already commenced. The new part is going to end up in Samsung Galaxy S6 and a few other devices.
