A few sources have confirmed that Nvidia is working on a new driver that might improve mining performance. This seems to be the hot topic in the last few weeks.
Too early for this memory
Volta is out for artificial intelligence, machine learning applications and it will be shipping in DGX 1 systems, mainly for deep learning and AI. The next Geforce will be a completely separate chip.
Down to three months
It looks like the GPU industry as we know is in the middle of a metamorphosis. Multiple sources from the channel, all the way to the AIB partners and chip manufacturers, have confirmed that GPUs used for mining will get shorter warranties.
Ethereum to blame
Last week at Computex quite a few of our contacts mentioned that RX 580, 570 and older 480 and 470 cards are extremely hard to find. It turns out, that our contacts confirmed that the Ethereum crypto currency network is to blame.
To be offered to other notebook manufacturers
Fudzilla has already mentioned the existence of an Intel based CPU with Radeon graphics. Our sources are very confident that Apple is the company behind this order.
Will take some time
Fudzilla has already mentioned Jim Keller, the hardware engineer that was one of the key people for finishing what was considered to be the overambitious AMD Zen CPU project. Keller now works for Tesla, and our well-informed friends confirmed that he is building a self-driving platform for the company.
Four to five times better than some Intel
Qualcomm talked a bit here at the Computex show about Snapdragon 835 running Windows, and we had a chance to see a demo and chat with Qualcomm’s Don McGuire VP of product marketing and Pete Bernard, a Principal Group Program Manager partner and customer engagement R&D chap at Microsoft.
July 30 is the first day
Vega is delayed and while AMD said it will arrive in Q2 2017, it won't.
The core wars
As expected, former chip giant Intel announced its four-to-twelve core Core X series and the top of the line is an 18-core processor of its "new" Core i9 series.
K12 ARM future unconfirmed
We're not sure if many people caught the fact that in last week's financial analyst update, AMD didn’t mention anything about the K12 and future ARM server products. We reached out and asked it for a comment.
