Is AMD Going To Rome

AMD has presented a long-term 7nm roadmap and the new codenames for the server products have an Italian theme. The Zen-based server core, the product that will give a birth to the  Epyc line of data center / server products should debut next month with Naples. Naples is the first 32 core with 64 threads to launch, and this is a 14nm FinFET product.

Is The U.S. Tech Sector Truly Leading The Way

The US stock market is doing rather well, but it is entirely based on the tech industry which have been making up all the gains. Apple, Alphabet, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft make up a whopping 37 percent of the total gains in the sharemarket while the bulk of US companies are just slouching around like teenagers in a mall. Apple, Alphabet, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft saw their share prices touch record highs in recent months. Other companies grew at a rate of less than 1 percent during the...

Is The Higgs Boson Completely Understood?

May 26, 2017 by   | Category: Around The Net

I’m sure by now we’ve all heard the refrain: “The Higgs boson creates mass.” And if you haven’t heard it, well, now you have. This simple statement seems to pack a wallop of a concept: that every pound and gram of your body, down at the submicroscopic scale, is due to this invisible Higgs goo that fills up the universe. Hence the nickname “The God Particle,” which has frustratingly entered the public consciousness. Without the Higgs, there wouldn’t...

Intel Goes AMD GPU Inside

We can now confirm the rumors that Intel has given up on Nvidia because it has written a checkto license AMD’s graphics. It looks like veteran GPU editor Kyle Bennet was right when he first reported the rumor, however wild it sounded. We didn’t contemplate it but wrote about it  several times. Intel needs a GPU licence and the Nvidia – Intel licensing agreement ended on March 17 2017, so Intel doesn’t have a license. It is more likely that Intel has a licencee from AMD but neither...

Is The MP3 Codec Finished?

The MP3 digital audio coding format has now been officially confirmed as dead by its inventors. The Fraunhofer Institute officially terminated its licensing program for certain MP3-related patents, in a move widely interpreted by tech experts as MP3’s “official death warrant”. It is all symbolic, you can still use MP3 files if you want to, but the removal of support for the format signals an official shift in the industry. Basically there are better quality formats that offer...

Can Companies Mine The Moon AT A Profit

The first-ever private mining operation on the moon is scheduled to kick off in 2020, when a landing craft sent by Florida-based Moon Express will ferry a single scoop of lunar dirt and rocks back to Earth. Unlike the three governments that have led lunar missions — the United States, the Soviet Union, and China — the owners of this private firm have something history-making in mind for that little ball of extraterrestrial soil: They plan to sell it. “It will instantly become the most valuable...

Fan said flash moves the data quicker and more reliably. Because it is not mechanically-based it has better durability to withstand...

Water And Strange Cloud Pattern Found On Neptune Like Planet

HAT-P-26b lies about 430 light-years away from Earth. The alien planet circles very close to its host star, completing one orbit every 4.2 Earth days. This proximity suggests that HAT-P-26b is tidally locked, showing the same face to its star at all times, said Hannah Wakeford, co-leader of the new study and a postdoctoral researcher at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Sing, Wakeford and their colleagues analyzed observations made by NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer...
