    re: “SemiAccurate reports Intel starts talking about 8nm node”

    Interesting. And just where will ARM be by then?

      • NeelyCam
      • 8 years ago

      A) Struggling with 14nm yields
      B) In a press event claiming they will have 60% of the notebook market in 4 years
      C) In Cupertino
      D) All of the above

        I thought that was directed at Apple/jobs untill I read #11

        +1 I lol’d

        If there ever was a client that might get Intel to fab ARM core based chips for them, it would likely be Apple given their market share/volume sales numbers. Not to mention Apple might be able to coax Intel into it by custom fabbing more exotic I/O hardware? Say, a custom SoC/PoP w/a native TB controller, and mini DisplayPort/TB connector in a future iPad? That might be a major game changer with industry wide ramifications.

    re: “Fudzilla reports AMD Llano mobile to launch on 14th of June”

    Yeah, Llano ending up in mobile is pretty much a given. *yawn* What I’m more interested in is where are the announcements about mini-ITX Llano platforms/systems? So far, I’ve only found two: Asrock, and Asus:

    [url<][/url<] .. a partial I/O panel photo of Asus mini-ITX Llano motherboards (German): [url<][/url<] Why nothing from Gigabyte, MSI, or Zotac makes me tend to wonder about the mITX form factor.

    Watching Steve Jobs on C-Net, I want to blame his arrogance on his ill health, but I fear I can’t. The councillors of Cupertino were elected by the citizens of that city to look after their interests, not Steve Jobs’. And for him to respond to their legitimate questions with “Do it my way without question or I’ll take my marbles and go home’ is inexcusable. I’d like to think he’ll apologize, but I bet he doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

    Is it too early to put flowers on Nokia’s grave?

    AFAICT unless Microsoft buys them outright they’re toast. Even then I don’t give them long.

      [quote<]"...unless Microsoft buys them outright they're toast"[/quote<] I doubt it, unless you mean ' their current form" They're still the biggest supplier of phones in Europe, still the biggest supplier of feature phones in the world, and still very profitable. But if you meant "...unless Microsoft buys them outright they're going to be a pale shadow of their former self" you may well be right.

        That is mostly what I meant, yes. If your strategy is to hook yourself exclusively to someone else’s software platform I don’t see how you’re going to stay in business.

        And they are all those things – for now. I don’t see WP7 driving that much demand, though I could well be wrong.

        They had a number of OSes. Now they’re stuck on one. That leaves Samsung and LG and the others all the maneuvering room in the world – and them very little. And wait til WebOs starts getting licensed.

        Plus they hooked themselves to the boatanchor that couldn’t even manage to handle the Kin properly and spent a lot of money screwing it up.

          [quote<]"If your strategy is to hook yourself exclusively to someone else's software platform I don't see how you're going to stay in business"[/quote<] Well, it's worked pretty well for many years for HP, Acer, IBM, and a million other PC vendors. And if I was HTC/Samsung/LG/etc., I'd be very nervous about what kind of favoritism MS will be showing to Nokia. But I agree that if I wanted to guarantee my survival by hitching my wagon to someone else's, nothing in the last decade would make me think 'Microsoft'

      Don’t worry, they’ll drag things out by renaming the upcoming installment as Mass Effect 2: Episode 1.

    [quote<]Expreview: AMD shows off its FX 8-core processor at E3 show[/quote<] The Overdrive screenshot shows all 8 cores running at totally different frequencies. [url<][/url<] I would have expected each module to run its two cores at the same frequency. This level of dynamic clocking is quite impressive, but it also makes me wonder which parts of the module run at the speeds indicated in the GUI. Would those frequencies be limited to the ( Integer Scheduler -> Integer Core -> L1 cache) part? If so then what speeds do the remaining parts - such as the FPU and the L2 cache - run at?
