Intel’s Broadwell Getting New Graphics Core

Intel’s 5th generation Core processor family is condemned Broadwell and it is coming in Q4 2014 to select thin and light notebooks. It launches with the Y-series processor line (4.5W TDP) and it will expand to the H-series processor line with a max TDP of 47W by Q2 2015. Naturally the new core is getting new graphics. The Y-processor line that launches first will come with Intel HD Graphics 5300 and this is the part that we meant when we said that 2014 Broadwell won’t be the full Monty. The...

CSR Develops New SDK To Speed Up The IoT

CSR has launched a developer kit for its CSRmesh protocol, which allows an unlimited number of Bluetooth Smart enabled devices to be networked together and controlled from a smartphone, tablet or PC. The kit includes development boards, a USB programmer and access to the software development kit (SDK), which includes example applications that aim to accelerate the development of new low-power connected Internet of Things (IoT) products, CSR said. “We are seeing Bluetooth Smart underpinning...

Does A Cloudy Alien Planet Help The Existence Of Life?

Does A Cloudy Alien Planet Help The Existence Of Life?

The cloudier an alien planet is, the closer it can get to its star and still remain potentially life-friendly, researchers say. In fact, clouds might help Earth-like planets remain hospitable to life even when orbiting a sun-like star as closely as the hellish Venus circles the sun in our solar system, the scientists added. This finding suggests that many alien worlds previously thought to be too hot for life as we know it may actually be habitable, investigators said. Astronomers have confirmed...

Can Moving From TCP/IP Speed Up The Internet?

Can Moving From TCP/IP Speed Up The Internet?

A team of Danish boffins have worked out that the Internet could be sped up by more than five times if there were some significant changes to TCP/IP. The researchers who hang out at Aalborg University say that a lot of the TCP/IP system needs to be junked in favour of something called “Random Linear Network Coding” (RLNC). Basically this means using new mathematical algorithms on routing problems to eliminate retransmissions and cut congestion. Researchers say that experiments with their new...

Fifty Percent Of Android Apps May Have Security Holes

Researchers that discovered the Heartbleed security vulnerability have warned that over half of the 50 most popular Android mobile apps have inherited security vulnerabilities through the irresponsible recycling of software libraries. Codenomicon, which coined the term “Heartbleed” upon discovering the OpenSSL flaw, will name and shame app developers later this month when it publishes its findings on those that neglected robust security practices. Preliminary results from a study by Codenomicon...

Intel’s 5th Gen Broadwell Coming In Three Flavors

Intel’s 5th Core processor family, codenamed Broadwell, will launch in three lines for the mobile segment. We are talking about upcoming Broadwell 14nm processors that will start appearing in Q4 2014 and will continue to launch trough the first half of 2015. The 5th generation Core 5Y70 and three other similar parts belong to the Y-line of processors. these are BGA processors with 4.5W TDP and they draw significantly less power than the Y-line of processors belonging to the Haswell generation....

The Pirate Bay Goes To Smartphones?

The Pirate Bay, the self-styled “world’s most resilient torrent site”, has released a mobile version of its website for the first time. The Mobile Bay taps into the increasing storage capacity of mobile devices and the growing number of uncapped 4G data plans. Offering millions of uploaded torrents from blockbuster movies and TV shows, cracked software packages and pornography, the vast majority of its content is considered illegal in almost every country of the world, leading to...

AMD’s Carrizo Goes Mobile Only

AMD’s upcoming Carrizo APU might not make it to the desktop market at all. According to Italian tech site bitsandchips.it, citing industry sources, AMD plans to limit Carrizo to mobile parts. Furthermore the source claims Carrizo will not support DDR4 memory. We cannot confirm or deny the report at this time. If the rumours turn out to be true, AMD will not have a new desktop platform next year. Bear in mind that Intel is doing the exact same thing by bringing 14nm silicon to mobile rather...

Astronomers Develop New Technique To Measure Alien Planets

Astronomers have made the best-ever measurement to date of the radius of an alien world. Using observations by NASA’s Kepler and Spitzer space telescopes, researchers determined that the exoplanet Kepler-93b is 1.48 times the size of Earth, confirming its status as a super-Earth — a world slightly larger than our own — and allowing scientists to conclude that the planet is very likely composed of iron and rock. “With Kepler and Spitzer, we’ve captured the most precise measurement...

Is The Demand For DRAM Slowing?

Hynix has reported a slowing down of growth in the memory chip profits as it posted its first drop in quarterly profit in two years, casting doubt on medium-term revenue growth. SK Hynix President Kim Joon-ho told analysts that the problem was a change in product mix and a transition to more complex production technology will crimp third-quarter shipments growth for the key DRAM business. Analysts are concerned that DRAM shipments growth will be increasingly limited in the latter half of the year,...

Can A New Test Prove If Voyager Is In Interstellar Space?

Can A New Test Prove If Voyager Is In Interstellar Space?

A new test could determine once and for all whether NASA’s Voyager 1 probe has indeed entered interstellar space, some researchers say. While mission team members declared last year that Voyager 1 reached interstellar space in August 2012, not all scientists are sold. Two researchers working with Voyager 1 have drawn up a test to show whether the spacecraft is inside or outside of the heliosphere — the bubble of solar particles and magnetic fields that the sun puffs around itself. The scientists...

Is GTA 5 Coming To The Xbox One And PS4 In November?

Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) might arrive for Playstation 4 (PS4), Xbox One and PC gamers on 7 November, if a UK retailer is to be believed. Rockstar is still yet to cough on a release date for GTA 5 for PCs and next-gen consoles, but said at this year’s E3 conference that the titles will tip up “this fall.” However, UK retailer Gameseek is claiming that the PC version, along with PS4 and Xbox One versions, will start shipping on 7 November. It is so confident that it has even started...

Is The Wii-U Making A Comeback?

A new survey commissioned by IHS in partnership with Gamer Network has shown that E3 gave a huge boost to the number of people interested in buying a Wii U, with purchasing intent growing by 50 per cent over the course of the event. Around one thousand core gamers were surveyed on various purchase intentions before and after the LA show, revealing that, whilst Nintendo’s platform started out with the lowest number of people looking at buying it, it saw the biggest benefit from the show’s...
