Helio P20 inside
It looks as if the cooperation between Sony and MediaTek will continue in 2017 too. A year after Sony announced the Xperia XA and the 6-inch XA Ultra, the company announced that the Helio P20 found its way in Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra.
It is between 13 and 11nm dummies
A while ago the dark satanic rumour mill suggested that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company was planning to release a sexed-up version of its 16nm manufacturing technology dubbed "12nm".
A smaller version of existing 16nm technology
According to industry sources, TSMC is planning to introduce a 12 nanometer half-node process to enhance competition with 28nm and lower process nodes that have been adopted over the past few years.
Return of the GPU Jedi
Nvidia, as you have seen, did an amazing job gaining a lot of the GPU high end and mainstream market. Pascal worked out great on the desktop and notebook, but it would be naive to expect that AMD is not going to come back with a vengeance.
There is more to life than pixels
Nvidia just announced its fiscal Q3 2017 (not a typo Ed.) and the company reported record revenue of $2 billion, up 54 percent from a year ago. This is finally proof that Nvidia is more than a GPU outfit, as it finally expanded beyond its core business - gaming and professional graphics.
Up to 10 percent improvement over Helio P10
According to a report coming from China, MediaTek has released its new Helio P15 chipset, an upgrade to the quite popular Helio P10 chipset.
16nm doing well but 20nm slumps
Taiwan’s chip foundries are raking in more cash in the third quarter than ever before, according to a new report.
As Snapdragon 830 is 10nm
We are quite surprised that few people concentrated on one of the major downsides of the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus – its clunky quad core A10 Chip. Far from being cutting edge, Apple is using 16nm and not the 10nm manufacturing process as many expected. Most of its competitors will soon announce their 10nm SoC.
Faster version of 16nm Helio P20
Just as it did with Helio X20, Mediatek is about to release a faster than the base original of the P20 called the P25.
Notebook GTX 1070 gets an upgrade from 1920 to 2048 cores
On Monday, ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte Sager and other industry players partnered with system integrator Xotic PC to announce a new lineup of 60 gaming notebooks built using Nvidia’s Geforce 10-Series Pascal GPU lineup – more specifically, Geforce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 GPUs.
