Things might pick up next year, but PC sales have continued to fall and analyst always say “things will get better next year.” Gartner said that PC shipments will drop by nearly eight percent this year, and another 4.4 percent in 2018. By 2019, 16 million fewer traditional PCs and notebooks will be sold than were shipped this year. However, much of this...

Intel and Samsung Pursuing HiSilicon

HiSilicon Technologies wants another supplier for the fabrication of its 7nm chips and apparently Samsung, Globalfoundries and Intel are trying to get the Chinese fabless firm’s attention. TSMC has been HiSilicon’s sole foundry partner for its 16nm and 10nm solution and will remain so, but  HiSilicon wants to get a back up for 7nm chips to ensure sufficient production capacity. TSMC has regained chip orders from Qualcomm, which used to be the foundry’s largest client, the sources...

Do Intel’s New Processors Offer A Noticeable Performance Boost

While Intel fanboys can tell you in detail about how cool Intel’s eighth generation chips are, analysts are noting that Intel might have a tough time selling the difference. After the announcement of the new chips Intel’s shares outperformed and there was a 3.8 percent fall for Nvidia shares and three percent decline for AMD stock. However we are not convinced, if only that Intel is playing the game in the same way that it always has, and the rules have changed. Market research firm Gartner’s...

Is The Ryzen 5 Falling

The price of AMD’s top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 5 microprocessor has fallen to below $265.00 and is cheaper than the cut-price Ryzen 5 1600. Apparently, it is all due to the fact that the cheaper 3.2GHz Ryzen 5 1600, which can be overclocked to similar speeds to the 1600X, and has a Wraith Spire CPU cooler is super popular. Those who get a 3.6GHz 1600X will need to splash out on a cooler. The Ryzen 5 1600X was first cut to less than £200 over the weekend by Aria PC, as a  “super special...

Can The Latest Version Of Internet Explorer Be Exploted

The latest version of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) browser carries a serious bug that leaks whatever you type into the address bar. The bug, disclosed by security researcher Manuel Caballero earlier this week, allows the website the user is currently visiting to view any text they type into the browser’ address bar, with that text becoming readable as soon as they hit the enter key. “When a script is executed inside an object-HTML tag, the location object will get confused...

Intel Developing Neuromorphic Processor

Intel has announced a new neuromorphic chip, codenamed Loihi, designed for AI and deep learning workloads. Intel’s Dr. Michael Mayberry said that the chip does not need to be trained in the traditional way and that it takes a new approach to this type of computing by using asynchronous spiking.This uses a technique which is different from a transistor. Instead of flipping between 0 and a 1, it triggers when signal thresholds are reached, and fire unit the number of spikes exceeds a given threshold. This...
