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....

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...

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,...

AMD Moving Quickly On Stacked DRAM APUs

AMD Moving Quickly On Stacked DRAM APUs

AMD is fast tracking stacked DRAM deployment and a new presentation leaked by the company  points to APUs with stacked DRAM, or high bandwidth memory (HBM). AMD is calling the project “Fastforward” and it is all about boosting memory bandwidth on upcoming APUs. However, AMD is not talking about specific products yet and it is unclear whether HBM will be implemented on its upcoming Carizzo APU. This seems highly unlikely at this point for a number of reasons and if we were to speculate...

Is Internet Explorer Being Exploited By Hackers?

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) has seen a 100 percent explosion of reported security vulnerabilities in just six months, according to security firm Bromium labs. Bromium has studied the security vulnerability market intensely and found that in the last six months Microsoft released more security patches than it had during the entire last decade. Internet Explorer also leads in publicly reported exploits. “Internet Explorer took the cap for historic high number of security patches in over...

Intel Develops Self-encrypting SSD

Intel has announced the Drive Pro 2500 series of solid state disk (SSD) drives that are “self encrypting”, which the firm says makes them more secure against data breaches. Aimed at businesses, the Intel SSD Pro 2500 series will come in a 2.4in 7mm form factor with 120GB, 180GB, 240GB, 360GB and 480GB capacities, M.2 80mm size with 180GB, 240GB and 360GB capacities, and M.2 60mm size with 180GB or 240GB capacities. Intel promises that each form factor type will provide random input/output...

Western Digital Updates The Red Line

Western Digital has announced an upgrade of its WD Red range, providing a single brand structure across consumer and enterprise. The WD Red range is aimed primarily at network attached storage (NAS) applications, and is joined by a new WD Red Pro line. Both sub-ranges are controlled by upgraded firmware called NASware 3.0. At a briefing last week, Western Digital’s UK country manager Jermaine Campbell explained that the new firmware will be able to instruct the drive to work in different ways...

Intel Adds More To Haswell For The Desktop

Intel has added eight new desktop chips to its price list, ranging from cheap Pentiums to mainstream Core i3 parts. All the chips are dual-cores based on the good old Haswell core. Four new Pentiums are now available. All are dual-core, dual-thread chips with 3MB of L3 cache. The Pentium G3250 is clocked at 3.2GHz, it has a TDP of 53W and it costs $64. The G3250T runs at 2.8GHz, but it has a TDP of 35W. It costs the same. The second 35W part is the Pentium G3450T, which runs at 2.9GHz and costs...

Are Governments Doing Enough To Warn People On The Risk of Cybercrime?

The UK Government isn’t doing enough to warn about the risks of cybercrime on a mass level, security firm Kaspersky has claimed. Speaking at a company roundtable event at the firm’s European hub in London on Thursday, Kaspersky security researcher David Emm said isn’t doing as much as it could be to educate people about cyber security. “I’d like to see the government doing more to get the message out to mainstream citizens and individuals because that’s the bone...

AMD Tumbles

AMD’s debt load is causing huge problems for the chipmaker — this quarter it had another substantial loss. The tame Apple Press has been claiming that AMD’s woes are caused by the fact it did not move to mobile as was directed by the profit Steve Jobs. They claim, along with some of the dafter analysts, that mobile computing has replaced the PC and companies that stuck to the “old technology” suffered. However that does not explain how Intel made a stonking profit mostly because of...

Imagination Technologies Shrinking Again

Mobile GPU designer Imagination Technologies has announced the world’s smallest mobile GPU. The PowerVR GX5300 takes up just 0.55mm2 on a 28nm die, which means it’s as small as a grain of salt. It operates at 250MHz and the company says it can handle everyday tasks with ease. The GPU features full OpenGL ES 2.0 compatibility PVRTC texture compression technology and of course the emphasis is on ultra-low power consumption. The company is not saying anything about the actual consumption, but the...

Will Qualcomm And Apple Give TSMC The Boot

TSMC saw its share price drop dramatically on Thursday as analysts predicted a loss of orders for next generation chips from Apple and Qualcomm. Falling by almost six percent, the share price fell after industry expert and KGI Securities analyst Michael Li predicted that big device and chip designers such as Apple and Qualcomm will likely buy a larger proportion of 14nm smartphone chips from Samsung rather than TSMC beginning in the second half of 2015, according to Reuters. Liu did not reveal the...
