24 cores, 25 percent perf up
ARM Mali GPUs are the number one shipping graphics processor covering gaming, XR, AI, and entertainment. ARM shared with us the updated GPU roadmap and introduced Mali-G78.
Neural processing makes better photors
All of a sudden, everyone became a better photographer, and this is due more to machine learning and neural processing units in modern phones, rather than people mastering the skill.
High-performance PC SoCs too
Qualcomm introduced Prime core clocked rest from the cluster with Snapdragon 865, and Huawei had two higher clock performance cores in Kirin 990. With that in mind, ARM has introduced the Cortex-X custom program. The result is up to 30 percent peak performance compared to previous generation Cortex A77 cores.
20 percent faster 5nm optimized
The next generation of phones mostly expected in early 2021, will come powered by Cortex A78 new core. The new Cortex A78 will improve performance by up to 20 percent in the same power envelope.
Now obviously later Vermeer
Ryzen 3 or what AMD might end up calling the Ryzen 4000 desktop series was supposed to launch at Computex 2020. Since Computex is postponed from late May to late September, it is unlikely that AMD will wait until then to reveal a new CPU.
Top-notch 20 nm Space-Grade FPGA
Computing and calculation are a tough job on the ground, not to mention in space, satellites, and Mars Rovers where they face radiation, limited space, and power constraints. Xilinx has just announced a top of the line 20 nm Space-Grade Radiation Tolerant (RT) Kintex UltraScale XQRKU060FPGA that it claims will offer 10X compute performance and reduce development time to launch from five to six to two to three years.
Conditio sine qua non
After weeks of speculation, TSMC has officially confirmed that Taiwan based TSMC announced its intention to build and operate an advanced semiconductor fab in Arizona, United States.
TSMC 7nm, next-gen Hopper 5nm
There have been rumors for quite some time about the Nvidia Ampere and the manufacturing nod. Nvidia’s first AI-based solution comes from TSMC, while some GPUs will be manufactured by Samsung too.
Scores 3K in Cinebench R15
Last week intel introduced the10th generation Core S series desktop processors, and we expect to have them to be available shortly. Motherboards for the platform should be available on May 20th, and the CPU should not be that far beyond.
Review: Tiny powerful desktop giant
I was always passionate about the small form factor PC. Back in the days, I was all over Shuttle small PCs, and back in 2013/2014, when Intel announced NUC small PCs, I was simply blown away.
