Stanford University Researchers Builds ‘High-rise’ Chip

Stanford University researchers have developed a multi-layered “high-rise” chip that could significantly outperform traditional computer chips, taking on the hefty workloads that will be needed for the Internet of Things and big data. Utilizing nanotechnology, the new chips are built with layers of processing on top of layers of memory, greatly cutting down on the time and energy typically needed to move information from memory to processing and back. Max Shulaker, a researcher on the...

Will ARM Have A Profitable 2015?

British chip designer ARM could cash in on the mobile industry’s rush to transition to 64-bit operating systems and hardware. Canaccord Genuity analyst Matt Ramsey argues that ARM is still a ‘Buy’ stock, as it’s trading at $43, while his price target is $54 to $56. Ramsay is upbeat for a number of reasons and the 64-bit craze is one o them. He pointed out that sales of ARMv8 chips are raping up and are no longer limited to Apple. Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 810 is...

HGST Buys Skyera Cloud Services

HGST has bought flash memory specialist Skyera after weeks of speculation. Skyera, a startup offering cloud server arrays at prices comparable to those offered by traditional spindle drives, was already considered ripe for a takeover. The company will be absorbed into HGST, the parent of which, Western Digital, was an early funder of Skyera along with Dell, Toshiba and Micron, giving it unprecedented access to NAND technology from the inside. Western Digital is clearly pleased with what it has bought...

Seagate Launching 8TB Magnetic Storage Drive

Seagate has announced its first drive based on shingled magnetic recording (SMR), a new technology that could give mechanical drives another lease on life. The first Seagate product to be based on SMR technology is an 8TB hard drive priced at $260, which sounds like relatively good value given the pricing of traditional 4TB drives. Seagate markets the new product as an ‘Archive HDD’ which makes perfect sense – few people would use a huge 3.5-inch unit as their system drive. Such...

Will HP’s New OS Succeed?

HP is in works to release a new operating system for its new computer, dubbed the Machine. The Machine is supposed to be more energy-efficient and powerful. HP aims to achieve its goals primarily by using a new kind of computer memory instead of the two types that computers use today. Most computers are based on an approach originated in the 1940s, and the need to shuttle data back and forth between the two types of memory limits performance. Kirk Bresniker, chief architect for The Machine said...

Can SSD’s Last Longer Than Manufacturers Estimate?

Can SSD’s Last Longer Than Manufacturers Estimate?

An uninterrupted test of solid state disc (SSD) drives has revealed that many modern devices could stand being rewritten for far longer than expected. SSD drives, while being significantly faster than their traditional spindle counterparts, are generally believed to have a shorter lifespan because the memory only has a finite number of rewrites. Indeed most SSD manufacturers only offer guarantees of a few years before the device becomes unwritable and the data that remains becomes permanently etched. But...
