Can AMD Launch Ryzen This Quarter?

AMD indicated that the official Ryzen launch date will be sometime before March. While they haven’t specifically given an exact date, a talk to be given by AMD at the annual Game Developer Conference (GDC) says the following: “Join AMD Game Engineering team members for an introduction to the recently-launched AMD Ryzen CPU followed by advanced optimisation topics.” Obviously for this to be the subject of the talk Ryzen would have had to be recently launched which means that it is...

Will A.I. Help nVidia And AMD Dethrone Intel?

Will A.I. Help nVidia And AMD Dethrone Intel?

The move to AI could be the one catalyst which could help AMD and Nvidia carve up Intel’s mighty kingdom. Last year saw Microsoft, Apple, Google develop more software for ARM based chips. During the year AMD and Nvidia saw their stock prices rise as shareholders started to think that they might succeed in taking Intel’s crown. On of the reasons for this is AI which is fast becoming a bigger buzz world than Interent of Things – which is the basket Intel is putting its eggs into. AMD and Nvidia...

Is The Milky Way Stealing Stars?

Is The Milky Way Stealing Stars?

Some of the most distant stars in the Milky Way may have been lifted from another galaxy, research released Wednesday shows. The unintended donor, known as the Sagittarius dwarf, is one of dozens of miniature galaxies that loop around the Milky Way. The Sagittarius dwarf is located about 3.4 million light-years away from Earth. Computer simulations show that Sagittarius paid a price each time it flew by its bigger neighbor. The Milky Way’s heftier gravitational tug has stripped away about one-third...

MediaTek Has A  Strong Quarter

MediaTek, the fabless semiconductor company from Taiwan that provides SoCs for HDTVs, Blu-ray players and wireless products, saw its revenues jump by 29.2 percent year-over-year to a record high of $8.6 billion (¥$275.51 billion), according to the latest industry reports. Deemed one of the fastest growing chip companies in 2016, MediaTek’s upswing in performance last year is attributed to a larger share of the worldwide smartphone SoC market, along with higher sales in local China and Taiwan...

Will Apple’s Supposed Jump In AR Be A Game Changer?

The super-cool and innovative tech power house Apple is rumored to have come up with some game-changing glasses which superimpose information and pictures onto reality. Dubbed AR, no other technology company has come up with the idea before and it is believed to be the brain child of Tim Cook himself. Of course, it is all top secret because other companies will steal the idea before Apple gets it to market. However, word on the street is that Apple is working with the German optics manufacturer...

Could Garnet Type Planets Support Life?

Could Garnet Type Planets Support Life?

Earth’s surface is ever-changing, with tectonic plates bumping together to cause earthquakes and volcanoes, grow mountains and replenish and redistribute elements — and that dynamic environment helps life thrive. But with a slightly different ratio of elements in the sun, the planet could have been far less forgiving. Planets are mostly made of the same stuff as their stars, and researchers have used that fact to simulate two very different rocky planets: one whose upper mantleis mostly the...

Are Notebooks Making Gains Against Tablets?

Are Notebooks Making Gains Against Tablets?

Notebooks, which had been written off by the Tame Apple Press after Steve Jobs showed off his tablets, are now back. Beancounters working for Deloitte have found that the sales of slates are expected to be down 10 per cent in 2017 compared to last year and there will probably be 165 million units leaving the shops. This is a third less than the total number of slates shifted in 2014 when 230 million tablets were sold. PC and laptops however are expected to stay at the same level as last year, and...

Is Intel Worried About Qualcomm?

Is Intel Worried About Qualcomm?

Last week at CES 2017 we noticed that Intel felt so unsecure about itself that it used a big curtain to hide the Qualcomm logo from the booth next door. This really happened and we were lucky to document it.  Intel and Qualcomm had booths next to each other at CES 2017 and this has been going on for a few CES shows. The difference this year, was that Intel ordered a huge curtain to block the view to Qualcomm’s logo standing on the side of the booth. Qualcomm didn’t. We are not sure how the...

Astronomers To Focus More On Alpha Centauri Seeking New Planets

Breakthrough Initiatives, a private organization that’s dedicated to looking for life elsewhere in the universe, has enlisted the help of a massive telescope in Chile to search for planets around one of the nearest star systems to our sun, officials announced today. Earlier this year, scientists announced the discovery of a potentially rocky planet orbiting the nearest star to the sun, Proxima Centauri; the planet orbits in a region where its surface temperature might be right to host liquid...

IBM Is Still The Patent King

While the Tame Apple Press is still trying to spin Jobs’ Mob as the most innovative in the world, the crown belongs to the outfit that Steve Jobs mocked – IBM. IBM received the most patents for the 24th year in a row and broke the US record in 2016. It had 8,088 patents granted to its inventors over the 12 months covering areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), cognitive computing, cloud, health and cyber security. No other company in US history has managed to get 8,000 patents in a single...

Have Astronomers Found A New Way To Search For E.T.?

A newly proposed technique could make it possible to search for life on alien planets much sooner than scientists had expected.   Earlier this year, scientists discovered a planet orbiting the nearest star to Earth’s own sun. Although relatively little is known about this newly discovered planet, which was dubbed Proxima b, evidence suggests it’s possible that it has the right conditions to support life. Of course, scientists are eager to look for signs of life on Proxima b (and members...

Should Virtual Reality Become More Of A Open Platform?

Tim Sweeney has urged virtual reality platform holders to ensure their devices and marketplaces are open to other providers in order to avoid the same monopoly that affects a significant portion of the smartphone market. Speaking to Glixel, the co-founder of Epic Games said he say “a lot going on that’s wrong” in other tech sectors, and points to Apple as a prime example. While he thinks its fine for the firm to be the only distributor of its hardware, he disagrees with their monopoly...

Is Apple PC Division Faltering?

While the Tame Apple Press is doing its best to claim that Apple will replace Microsoft as the world’s leading OS, it appears to be covering a story which shows that the fruity cargo cult is losing ground in in PCs. According to web analytics vendor Net Applications,  it has found that Apple’s desktop and notebook operating system — formerly OS X, now macOS — powered just 6.1 percent of all personal computers last month. This is a significant fall from the seven percent it held...

Will AMD Unlock RYZEN ?

A set of new AMD Ryzen slides that have surfaced recently has confirmed that the entire Ryzen CPU lineup will have an unlocked multiplier and be ready for launch by the end of Q1 2017. Although AMD has mostly been talking about its high-end 8-core/16-thread Ryzen SKU, there will be a full line of Zen-based Ryzen CPUs, including the rumored 6-core/12-thread and 4-core/8-thread version, probably coming with different clock speeds. The newest set of slides confirms that every AMD Ryzen CPU will actually...
