Microsoft Thinks “Spectre” and “Meltdown” Will Impact The Server Market

Microsoft warned us last week that software fixes for the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities could “significantly” impact the performance of some systems. In a blog post, Microsoft’s Terry Myerson said that, while the firm has yet to carry out extensive benchmarks, it has already found that the patches will bring with them a performance impact. For those using Windows 10 on a newer 2016-era PC with Skylake, Kabylake or newer, Microsoft’s early benchmarks show single-digit...

Intel and Micron Part Ways

Intel and Micron are to pull the plug on their long-running partnership on 3D NAND flash memory by early next year. In a joint statement Intel and Micron said they would “work independently” on future 3D NAND after signing off on their third generation of 3D NAND late this year. The companies said they would continue to work together to develop and manufacture 3D XPoint non-volatile memory. Intel’s ramp up of Intel’s 300-mm fab in Dalian, China to produce 3D NAND — which...

Astronomers Solve Alien Planet Megastructure Mystery

Well, we always knew the alien-megastructure idea was a long shot. E.T. has nothing to do with the bizarre dimming events of the mysterious object known as Tabby’s star, a new study reports. “Dust is most likely the reason why the star’s light appears to dim and brighten,” study leader Tabetha Boyajian, an astronomer at Louisiana State University, said in a statement. “The new data shows that different colors of light are being blocked at different intensities. Therefore,...

AMD Going 7nm With Vega

AMD’s Lisa Su has announced Vega 7nm as a machine learning “instinct part” first. AMD is quite clear that this is for machine learning first and don’t want to comment on our curiosity whether Vega 7nm can make it to the market as a gaming product soon. Radeon Instinct Vega 7nm sounds like a shrink down of Vega architecture, a much safer approach than the new architecture Navi in 7nm. It is simply safer to shrink the existing architecture, such as Vega from 14nm to 7nm, than to...

Astronomers Believe Super Giant Stars May Be More Common

Heavyweight stars up to hundreds of times the mass of the sun may be more abundant than previously thought, a new study finds.  These findings suggest that black holes and other exotic remnants of dead massive stars may also be more common than previously suspected, and that supersize stars may have played a bigger role in the evolution of the universe than previously predicted.  Astronomers have long known of stars that are more than 10 times the mass of the sun. The most massive star currently...

Astronomers May Soon See Planets Around Alpha Centauri

Technology in development could capture images from an Earth-size planet in the nearby Alpha Centauri system in the 2020s, new research suggests.  The new technique, presented Dec. 15 at the American Geophysical Union’s annual meeting in New Orleans, could also help researchers see exoplanets in other systems with more than one star. Although there’s only one star in Earth’s solar system, previous work found that two-thirds of so-called class G yellow dwarf stars (the group that...
