Is MediaTek’s Helio X30 Processor Going To Do Well In The Market?

MediaTek is planning a Helio X30 in 10nm later this year but news from Taiwan indicates that some key customers didn’t order the new flagship 10 core chip.  One of the main reasons might be the increased competition in the Chinese market and companies cannot afford to have two designs of the same phone with Qualcomm or a MediaTek chip in. The rumor is that Xiaomi, MediaTek’s big customer, might be coming up with its own Pinecone SoC and this will put some additional pressure on MediaTek’s...

Is The Intel C2000 Chip Flaw A Disaster In The Making?

It is starting to look like Intel’s Atom C2000 chip fiasco has spread to another networking manufacturer. The fatal clock timing flaw that causes switches, routers and security appliances die after about 18 months of service is apparently a feature of some Juniper products. Cisco was the first vendor to post a notice about the problem earlier this month saying the notice covers some of the company’s most widely deployed products, such as certain models of its Series 4000 Integrated Services...

Astronomer Discover Clue To Star Explosions From Young Supernova

Baby pictures of a newborn supernova have captured this stellar explosion after the first half-dozen hours of its life, shedding light on how these giant explosions happen, a new study finds. This newly discovered cosmic baby is the type of supernova that occurs when a giant star runs out of fuel and explodes. Supernovas are so bright that they can briefly outshine all of the other stars in their home galaxy. Astronomers have previously seen glimpses of supernovas within the first minutes after they...

Cosmic Rays Named As Possible Cause Of Computer Crashes

When your PC crashes or phone freezes, don’t be so quick to blame the manufacturer. Cosmic rays — or rather the electrically charged particles they generate — may be the real culprit. While harmless to living organisms, a small number of these particles have enough energy to interfere with the operation of the microelectronic circuitry in our personal devices. It’s called a single-event upset or SEU. During an SEU, particles alter an individual bit of data stored in a chip’s...

This happens in the middle of the last quarter when Nvidia and Intel’s cross licensing GPU deal is about to expire.  Just recently, Kyle said that there might be a CPU with Radeon coming this year but more important is that from April 1, Intel will not have a valid GPU license from Nvidia or AMD. None of the three companies spoke publicly about a possible GPU licensing...
