Intel’s Cherry Trail Processor Coming In 2015

Bay Trail was quite a big deal when it started shipping in late 2013. It was a tablet chip that enabled great design wins such as the affordable Asus T100TA and even in late 2014 Asus used the platform to create the EeeBook X205, a $199 netbook. Both of these designs are based on Intel’s Bay-Trail M processor, a year old 22nm quad-core processor based on the Silvermont design. Some machines that are coming with LTE, both netbooks and tablets and there will be new chip coming in 2015. It is...

Suse Jumps Into The Sofware-Defined Storage Market

Software Defined Storage (SDS) is the latest buzzphrase in the sector, and in recognition of this Linux distributor SUSE has announced a pre-release programmer for SUSE Storage. SUSE Storage is the open-source vendor’s first entry into the SDS market, and the firm describes it as “a self-healing, self-managing, distributed, software-based storage solution”. The INQUIRER caught up with Gerald Pfeifer, senior director of product management and operations at SUSE, who said that it...

Is Dark Energy Eating Dark Matter?

Is Dark Energy Eating Dark Matter?

Dark energy appears to be devouring dark matter and slowing the expansion of the cosmos, a new study suggests. Dark matter makes up the backbone of the universe, and there is five times as much of it in the universe as regular matter that makes up the visible objects in the universe like planets and stars. Physicists have yet to directly detect dark matter and no one knows what it’s made of. Scientists can only tell that it exists from its gravitational pull on regular matter. Now, the new...

Intel Shows New Processor Roadmap

Intel Shows New Processor Roadmap

Intel has revealed an update to its CPU roadmap and some things have changed in 2015 and beyond. Let’s start with the Broadwell 14nm architecture. The first processors based on this technology are starting to show up in razor thin laptops and ultra-fast tablets. Intel should add ultra-expensive, as the first SKUs cost an arm and leg. However, the Core M is excellent performer considering its 4.5W TDP envelope and this is the first time that Intel has made such as energy efficient Core processor....

Was Sony’s Playstation Network Hacked Again?

Was Sony’s Playstation Network Hacked Again?

Sony has denied the claims of DerpTrolling, a hacker group which claimed it had raided the databases of the PSN, along with a number of other online services. The group had published a list of emails and passwords for PSN, Windows Live Mail and 2K Games accounts online, and claimed to be prepared to release more, but Sony says that they’ve come from other sources than hacking. “We have investigated the claims that our network was breached and have found no evidence that there was any...

Astronomers Searching For Binary Earth-Like Planets Around Stars

Astronomers Searching For Binary Earth-Like Planets Around Stars

Two Earth-size planets that orbit each other might exist around distant stars, researchers say. The solar system has many examples of moons orbiting planets; Jupiter and Saturn both possess more than 60 satellites. However, these moons are usually much smaller than their planets — Earth is nearly four times wider than its moon and more than 80 times its mass. Still, some moons are as large as planets. For instance, Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon, is larger than Mercury, and three-quarters...

Amazon’s Zocalo Goes Mobile

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced two much-needed boosts to its fledgling Zocalo productivity platform, making the service mobile and allowing for file capacities of up to 5TB. The service, which is designed to do what Drive does for Google and what Office 365 does for software rental, has gained mobile apps for the first time as Zocalo appears on the Google Play store and Apple App Store. Amazon also mentions availability on the Kindle store, but we’re not sure about that bit. We assume...

Is World Of Warcraft On The Rise?

Blizzard is happy and why shouldn’t they be as World of Warcraft subscriptions are up. The reason for the increase can be traced to the release of the latest expansion pack which was recently released. The latest WOW expansion pack is called Warlords of Draeno and its release has driven subscriptions to 10 million. Selling over 3.3 million copies of the Warlords of Draenor on the first day alone, growth has been seen in all major territories since release. The numbers do include those players that...

Could Alien Life Flourish On A CO2 Based Alien Planet?

Could Alien Life Flourish On A CO2 Based Alien Planet?

Alien life might flourish on an exotic kind of carbon dioxide, researchers say. This “supercritical” carbon dioxide, which has features of both liquids and gases, could be key to extraterrestrial organisms much as water is to biology on Earth. Most familiar as a greenhouse gas that traps heat, helping warm the planet, carbon dioxide is exhaled by animals and used by plants in photosynthesis. While it can exist as a solid, liquid and gas, past a critical point of combined temperature and...

Can Qualcomm Compete With Intel In The Server Space?

Qualcomm has confirmed that it will branch out from offering its Snapdragon mobile chips and will soon launch a line of server processors. The firm’s CEO, Steve Mollenkopf, has remained tight lipped about the plans so far but, according to The Wall Street Journal, said during a meeting with financial analysts in New York on Wednesday that the company is working on chips for the data centre. There’s no timing yet, either, although Mollenkopf said that his firm is currently “engaged...

Will Sunset Overdrive Make It To The PC?

Microsoft has seen a number of Xbox One exclusive titles already be ported to the PC. Both Dead Rising 3 and Ryse have already made it to the PC, but we are now again hearing that Sunset Overdrive again is heading to the PC and Forza Horizon 2 maybe following as well. This is not the first time we have heard rumors of Sunset Overdrive coming to the PC. An ad that suggested as much was down played at the time by Insomiac as a mistake. Now Sunset Overdrive and Forza Horizon 2 showed up on Amazon France...

Scientist Discover Largest Web Of Galaxies

Scientists working with a telescope in Chile discovered the alignment by studying 93 quasars — objects that shine very brightly and are powered by supermassive black holes — from the early universe. The picture (an artist’s impression created using data collected by the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope) shows the quasars aligned in a web of blue against the black sea of space. Earlier studies have found that these quasars are “known to form huge groupings...

Marvell Finally Goes Octa-Core

Marvell is better known for its storage controllers, but the company doesn’t want to give up on the smartphone and tablet SoC market. It just announced a new octa-core ARM Cortex A53 chip with rather strange name, 5-mode 4G LTE ARMADA mobile PXA1936 SoC. The chip supports 5-mode LTE and the eight A53 cores are clocked at up to 1.5 GHz. The SoC supports 1080p displays, as well as high-def video encoding and decoding, while the improved image processor supports cameras between 13 and 16 megapixels. Marvell...

Is Dark Matter Destroying Neutron Stars?

Is Dark Matter Destroying Neutron Stars?

The mysterious substance that makes up most of the matter in the universe may be destroying neutron stars by turning them into black holes in the center of the Milky Way, new research suggests. If astronomers successfully detect a neutron star dying at the metaphorical hands of dark matter, such a finding could yield critical insights on the elusive properties of material, scientists added. Dark matter — an invisible substance thought to make up five-sixths of all matter in the universe — is...
