AMD’s Vega Benchmarks Continue To Leak

An alleged SiSoft benchmark result leak that has been spotted recently has revealed a bit more information on what appears to be at least one version of the upcoming AMD Vega GPU. According to the data provided by the benchmark result, which was originally spotted by Videocardz.com, the GPU features 64 CUs for a total of 4096 Stream Processors as well as comes with 8GB of VRAM on a 2048-bit memory interface (two HMB2 stacks, each with 4GB and 1024-bit memory interface). Despite the obviously wrong...

Research Shows Cobol Is Not As Hacker-proof As Initially Thought

New research is dispelling the idea that legacy systems — such as Cobol and Fortran — are more secure because hackers are unfamiliar with the technology. New research found that these outdated systems, which may not be encrypted or even documented, were more susceptible to threats. By analyzing publicly available federal spending and security breach data, the researchers found that a 1% increase in the share of new IT development spending is associated with a 5% decrease in security...

Will ASUS Tackle Virtual Reality This Year?

Asustek is choosing suppliers for its VR head-mounted display (HMD) devices so it can have its production start in the third quarter of 2017. According to Digitimes, Samsung Display is likely to get the display panels work and the OEM production will take place in Taiwan. Samsung Display is the top choice for AMOLED panel supply among HMD developers becuase it has been making them a bit longer. Microsoft’s aggressive promotions on mixed reality (MR) technologies also prompted Acer, Dell, Asustek,...

Microsoft Postpones Retirement Of Security Bulletins

Microsoft has postponed the retirement of the security bulletins that for nearly two decades have described in detail the month’s slate of vulnerabilities and accompanying patches. The bulletins’ last stand was originally scheduled for January, with a replacement process ready to step in Feb. 14. Rather than a set of bulletins, Microsoft was to provide a searchable database of support documents dubbed the “Security Updates Guide” or SUG. But just hours before February’s...

Does Spreadtrum’s Chip Really Have Intel Inside?

China-based mobile chip vendor Spreadtrum has announced a new chip dubbed the SC9861G-IA, targeted at the “global mid-level and premium smartphone market”. The chip is based around Intel’s Atom-based Airmont processor cores and it was made by Chipzilla using its 14-nanometer chip manufacturing technology. Spreadtrum said the chip will go into mass production in the second quarter of 2017 which means we should see it in the shops in the second half of 2017. One thing should be noted...

Will NVidia’s Volta Beat AMD’s Radeon RX Vega?

Rumors are starting to come in that Nvidia’s coming Volta will give AMD’s Radeon RX Vega a good kicking thanks to Taiwan Semiconductor’s 12 nm fabrication process over Vega’s 14 nm. Vega had been touted to be a key threat to Nvidia, and its newly announced GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. After years of not having competition, Vega has forced Nvidia to get off its backside and come up with something that can at least match it. Not much information has been known or leaked about the Pascal successor,...

Researchers Create Self-Replicating Computer

Researchers armed with white boards and slide rules claim it is possible to build a self-replicating computer that replaces silicon chips with processors made from DNA molecules. Dubbed a nondeterministic universal Turing machine (NUTM), it could execute all possible algorithms at once by taking advantage of DNA’s ability to replicate almost perfect copies of itself over billions of years. Current electronic computers are based on a finite number of silicon chips. A decision to buy a particular...
