So, after all the guesses, it seems to be true: Intel will continue its rapid integrated 3-D graphics improvement into Haswell generation , with more GT3 options across both desktop and mobile – including UltraBook – markets. Further cause for Nvidia to worry on the entry level discrete segment…
ARM has announced the Cortex-M0+ CPU, which it is claiming is the world's most energy-efficient processor.
Intel's Core i7-3770K (ES) vs i7-2600K vs i7-3960X, nuff said! We have also included a brief USB 3.0 controller shootout inside, involving the new Z77 (Panther Point) Native USB implementation and other popular solutions.
A newly leaked slide on Intel's Ivy Bridge launch schedule has hit the web which puts any previous uncertainty to rest in terms of when exactly the first wave of chips will hit retail.
"What if I have about US$5000 to spend – Could I have a true 8-core/16-thread CPU in a small form factor setup without compromising on storage, thermals or online gaming prowess?" Well, we show that we can!
Finally, the wait seems to have been worthwhile – Intel is today launching its new generation Socket 2011 dual CPU Xeon E5-2600 platform based on the Sandy Bridge architecture. Here we talk to Intel's regional honchos about some of the opportunities and challenges Intel faces.
Its been almost two years, an eternity in our IT circles, since the release of the Gulftown/Westmere-EP Xeon 5600 series. After several delays, the Socket 2011 based Xeon E5 2600 series (formerly codenamed Romley) is officially launched today, with Intel porting over the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture to its 2P Xeon offerings. Featuring IPC improvements and two additional cores on
We've already report just about everything there is to report on Intel's soon to launch Ivy Bridge processors, but with close to two months before the launch, Intel has gone and put up publically accessible information that details all of its upcoming processors models. This is about as official as it'll ever get ahead of
We've already seen details of Intel's upcoming Core i7-3667U and Core i5-3427U ULV Ivy Bridge processors back in December, but now details of an additional three ULV models have reached us. On top of that, we have details on the programmable TDP of all five ULV models and Intel has clearly allowed for a lot of
Along with AMD's juggling of its FX-Series that took place yesterday in the form of two new models (the FX-6200 and FX-4170) as well as some price cuts to a couple existing FX chips, we've since learned that the company hasn't stopped there in terms of the price slashing with significant cuts made across its
AMD's FX lineup of desktop processors has been dusted off a bit thanks to a couple of new additions to the series in the form of the FX-6200 and FX-4170 along with some price cutting on two existing chips; namely the FX-8120 and the FX-6100.
In some ways Qualcomm appears to be behind some of its competitors, especially with the delay of its first quad core processors, but its new MSM8960 SoC has proven that more cores aren't always the way forward, despite the market hype. Now the company has announced a "pro" version of the MSM8960, simply called the

It's official, Intel has delayed its mobile Ivy Bridge processor launch, at least according to an interview with Intel's executive VP and chariman of Intel China, Sean Maloney. This is indeed bad news for those waiting to upgrade their notebooks, as it means another few months wait, something that isn't always an option.
Huawei’s own ARM adds to a dozen other Chinese ARM CPUs, signals further phone price reduction chances
Inexpensive ARM licensing does pay off sometimes, it seems – for China and, in this case, Huawei, its own phone & tablet ARM for greater cost control…
Chinese Huawei is apparently none too fond of sourcing outside chips for its smartphones, as the company has announced that its latest handset – the Ascend D quad – sports a Huawei made quad core ARM based SoC. That makes Huawei – as far as we know – the second handset maker that also makes
The rumoured quad core Exynos 4412 from Samsung is said to have been demoed at the ISSCC or International Solid-State Circuits Conference held in San Francisco, which as it happens finishes today.
